Ez 1040 form This chapter also discusses special rules for married individuals who are domiciled in a country with community property laws. Ez 1040 form Topics - This chapter discusses: Income source rules, and Community income. Ez 1040 form Resident Aliens A resident alien's income is generally subject to tax in the same manner as a U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form citizen. Ez 1040 form If you are a resident alien, you must report all interest, dividends, wages, or other compensation for services, income from rental property or royalties, and other types of income on your U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form tax return. Ez 1040 form You must report these amounts from sources within and outside the United States. Ez 1040 form Nonresident Aliens A nonresident alien usually is subject to U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form income tax only on U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source income. Ez 1040 form Under limited circumstances, certain foreign source income is subject to U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form tax. Ez 1040 form See Foreign Income in chapter 4. Ez 1040 form The general rules for determining U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source income that apply to most nonresident aliens are shown in Table 2-1. Ez 1040 form The following discussions cover the general rules as well as the exceptions to these rules. Ez 1040 form Not all items of U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source income are taxable. Ez 1040 form See chapter 3. Ez 1040 form Interest Income Generally, U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source interest income includes the following items. Ez 1040 form Interest on bonds, notes, or other interest-bearing obligations of U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form residents or domestic corporations. Ez 1040 form Interest paid by a domestic or foreign partnership or foreign corporation engaged in a U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form trade or business at any time during the tax year. Ez 1040 form Original issue discount. Ez 1040 form Interest from a state, the District of Columbia, or the U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form Government. Ez 1040 form The place or manner of payment is immaterial in determining the source of the income. Ez 1040 form A substitute interest payment made to the transferor of a security in a securities lending transaction or a sale-repurchase transaction is sourced in the same manner as the interest on the transferred security. Ez 1040 form Exceptions. Ez 1040 form   U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source interest income does not include the following items. Ez 1040 form Interest paid by a resident alien or a domestic corporation on obligations issued before August 10, 2010, if for the 3-year period ending with the close of the payer's tax year preceding the interest payment, at least 80% of the payer's total gross income: Is from sources outside the United States, and Is attributable to the active conduct of a trade or business by the individual or corporation in a foreign country or a U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form possession. Ez 1040 form However, the interest will be considered U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source interest income if either of the following apply. Ez 1040 form The recipient of the interest is related to the resident alien or domestic corporation. Ez 1040 form See section 954(d)(3) for the definition of related person. Ez 1040 form The terms of the obligation are significantly modified after August 9, 2010. Ez 1040 form Any extension of the term of the obligation is considered a significant modification. Ez 1040 form Interest paid by a foreign branch of a domestic corporation or a domestic partnership on deposits or withdrawable accounts with mutual savings banks, cooperative banks, credit unions, domestic building and loan associations, and other savings institutions chartered and supervised as savings and loan or similar associations under federal or state law if the interest paid or credited can be deducted by the association. Ez 1040 form Interest on deposits with a foreign branch of a domestic corporation or domestic partnership, but only if the branch is in the commercial banking business. Ez 1040 form Dividends In most cases, dividend income received from domestic corporations is U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source income. Ez 1040 form Dividend income from foreign corporations is usually foreign source income. Ez 1040 form Exceptions to both of these rules are discussed below. Ez 1040 form A substitute dividend payment made to the transferor of a security in a securities lending transaction or a sale-repurchase transaction is sourced in the same manner as a distribution on the transferred security. Ez 1040 form Dividend equivalent payments. Ez 1040 form   U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source dividends also include all dividend equivalent payments. Ez 1040 form Dividend equivalent payments include substitute dividends, payments made pursuant to a specified notional principal contract, and all similar payments that, directly or indirectly, are contingent on or determined by reference to, the payment of a dividend from U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form sources. Ez 1040 form    The Internal Revenue Service has issued final regulations that would affect the treatment of dividend equivalent payments and specified notional principal contracts. Ez 1040 form You can view this regulation at www. Ez 1040 form irs. Ez 1040 form gov/irb/2013-52_IRB/ar08. Ez 1040 form html. Ez 1040 form First exception. Ez 1040 form   Dividends received from a domestic corporation are not U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source income if the corporation elects to take the American Samoa economic development credit. Ez 1040 form Second exception. Ez 1040 form   Part of the dividends received from a foreign corporation is U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source income if 25% or more of its total gross income for the 3-year period ending with the close of its tax year preceding the declaration of dividends was effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. Ez 1040 form If the corporation was formed less than 3 years before the declaration, use its total gross income from the time it was formed. Ez 1040 form Determine the part that is U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source income by multiplying the dividend by the following fraction. Ez 1040 form   Foreign corporation's gross income connected with a U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form trade or business for the 3-year period     Foreign corporation's gross income from all sources for that period   Guarantee of Indebtedness Certain amounts received directly or indirectly, for the provision of a guarantee of indebtedness issued after September 27, 2010, are U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source income. Ez 1040 form They must be paid by a noncorporate resident or U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form corporation or by any foreign person if the amounts are effectively connected with the conduct of a U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form trade or business. Ez 1040 form For more information, see Internal Revenue Code sections 861(a)(9) and 862(a)(9). Ez 1040 form Personal Services All wages and any other compensation for services performed in the United States are considered to be from sources in the United States. Ez 1040 form The only exceptions to this rule are discussed in chapter 3 under Employees of foreign persons, organizations, or offices, and under Crew members. Ez 1040 form If you are an employee and receive compensation for labor or personal services performed both inside and outside the United States, special rules apply in determining the source of the compensation. Ez 1040 form Compensation (other than certain fringe benefits) is sourced on a time basis. Ez 1040 form Certain fringe benefits (such as housing and education) are sourced on a geographical basis. Ez 1040 form Or, you may be permitted to use an alternative basis to determine the source of compensation. Ez 1040 form See Alternative Basis , later. Ez 1040 form Multi-level marketing. Ez 1040 form   Certain companies sell products through a multi-level marketing arrangement, such that an upper-tier distributor, who has sponsored a lower-tier distributor, is entitled to a payment from the company based on certain activities of that lower-tier distributor. Ez 1040 form Generally, depending on the facts, payments from such multi-level marketing companies to independent (non-employee) distributors (upper-tier distributors) that are based on the sales or purchases of persons whom they have sponsored (lower-tier distributors) constitute income for the performance of personal services in recruiting, training, and supporting the lower-tier distributors. Ez 1040 form The source of such income is generally based on where the services of the upper-tier distributor are performed, and may, depending on the facts, be considered multi-year compensation, with the source of income determined over the period to which such compensation is attributable. Ez 1040 form Self-employed individuals. Ez 1040 form   If you are self-employed, you determine the source of compensation for labor or personal services from self-employment on the basis that most correctly reflects the proper source of that income under the facts and circumstances of your particular case. Ez 1040 form In many cases, the facts and circumstances will call for an apportionment on a time basis as explained next. Ez 1040 form Time Basis Use a time basis to figure your U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source compensation (other than the fringe benefits discussed later). Ez 1040 form Do this by multiplying your total compensation (other than the fringe benefits discussed later) by the following fraction:   Number of days you performed services in the United States during the year     Total number of days you performed services during the year   You can use a unit of time less than a day in the above fraction, if appropriate. Ez 1040 form The time period for which the compensation is made does not have to be a year. Ez 1040 form Instead, you can use another distinct, separate, and continuous time period if you can establish to the satisfaction of the IRS that this other period is more appropriate. Ez 1040 form Example 1. Ez 1040 form Christina Brooks, a resident of the Netherlands, worked 240 days for a U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form company during the tax year. Ez 1040 form She received $80,000 in compensation. Ez 1040 form None of it was for fringe benefits. Ez 1040 form Christina performed services in the United States for 60 days and performed services in the Netherlands for 180 days. Ez 1040 form Using the time basis for determining the source of compensation, $20,000 ($80,000 × 60/240) is her U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source income. Ez 1040 form Example 2. Ez 1040 form Rob Waters, a resident of South Africa, is employed by a corporation. Ez 1040 form His annual salary is $100,000. Ez 1040 form None of it is for fringe benefits. Ez 1040 form During the first quarter of the year he worked entirely within the United States. Ez 1040 form On April 1, Rob was transferred to Singapore for the remainder of the year. Ez 1040 form Rob is able to establish that the first quarter of the year and the last 3 quarters of the year are two separate, distinct, and continuous periods of time. Ez 1040 form Accordingly, $25,000 of Rob's annual salary is attributable to the first quarter of the year (. Ez 1040 form 25 × $100,000). Ez 1040 form All of it is U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source income because he worked entirely within the United States during that quarter. Ez 1040 form The remaining $75,000 is attributable to the last three quarters of the year. Ez 1040 form During those quarters, he worked 150 days in Singapore and 30 days in the United States. Ez 1040 form His periodic performance of services in the United States did not result in distinct, separate, and continuous periods of time. Ez 1040 form Of this $75,000, $12,500 ($75,000 × 30/180) is U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source income. Ez 1040 form Multi-year compensation. Ez 1040 form   The source of multi-year compensation is generally determined on a time basis over the period to which the compensation is attributable. Ez 1040 form Multi-year compensation is compensation that is included in your income in one tax year but that is attributable to a period that includes two or more tax years. Ez 1040 form   You determine the period to which the compensation is attributable based on the facts and circumstances of your case. Ez 1040 form For example, an amount of compensation that specifically relates to a period of time that includes several calendar years is attributable to the entire multi-year period. Ez 1040 form   The amount of compensation treated as from U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form sources is figured by multiplying the total multi-year compensation by a fraction. Ez 1040 form The numerator of the fraction is the number of days (or unit of time less than a day, if appropriate) that you performed labor or personal services in the United States in connection with the project. Ez 1040 form The denominator of the fraction is the total number of days (or unit of time less than a day, if appropriate) that you performed labor or personal services in connection with the project. Ez 1040 form Geographical Basis Compensation you receive as an employee in the form of the following fringe benefits is sourced on a geographical basis. Ez 1040 form Housing. Ez 1040 form Education. Ez 1040 form Local transportation. Ez 1040 form Tax reimbursement. Ez 1040 form Hazardous or hardship duty pay as defined in Regulations section 1. Ez 1040 form 861-4(b)(2)(ii)(D)(5). Ez 1040 form Moving expense reimbursement. Ez 1040 form The amount of fringe benefits must be reasonable and you must substantiate them by adequate records or by sufficient evidence. Ez 1040 form Principal place of work. Ez 1040 form   The above fringe benefits, except for tax reimbursement and hazardous or hardship duty pay, are sourced based on your principal place of work. Ez 1040 form Your principal place of work is usually the place where you spend most of your working time. Ez 1040 form This could be your office, plant, store, shop, or other location. Ez 1040 form If there is no one place where you spend most of your working time, your main job location is the place where your work is centered, such as where you report for work or are otherwise required to “base” your work. Ez 1040 form   If you have more than one job at any time, your main job location depends on the facts in each case. Ez 1040 form The more important factors to be considered are: The total time you spend at each place, The amount of work you do at each place, and How much money you earn at each place. Ez 1040 form Housing. Ez 1040 form   The source of a housing fringe benefit is determined based on the location of your principal place of work. Ez 1040 form A housing fringe benefit includes payments to you or on your behalf (and your family's if your family resides with you) only for the following. Ez 1040 form Rent. Ez 1040 form Utilities (except telephone charges). Ez 1040 form Real and personal property insurance. Ez 1040 form Occupancy taxes not deductible under section 164 or 216(a). Ez 1040 form Nonrefundable fees for securing a leasehold. Ez 1040 form Rental of furniture and accessories. Ez 1040 form Household repairs. Ez 1040 form Residential parking. Ez 1040 form Fair rental value of housing provided in kind by your employer. Ez 1040 form   A housing fringe benefit does not include: Deductible interest and taxes (including deductible interest and taxes of a tenant-stockholder in a cooperative housing corporation), The cost of buying property, including principal payments on a mortgage, The cost of domestic labor (maids, gardeners, etc. Ez 1040 form ), Pay television subscriptions, Improvements and other expenses that increase the value or appreciably prolong the life of property, Purchased furniture or accessories, Depreciation or amortization of property or improvements, The value of meals or lodging that you exclude from gross income, or The value of meals or lodging that you deduct as moving expenses. Ez 1040 form Education. Ez 1040 form   The source of an education fringe benefit for the education expenses of your dependents is determined based on the location of your principal place of work. Ez 1040 form An education fringe benefit includes payments only for the following expenses for education at an elementary or secondary school. Ez 1040 form Tuition, fees, academic tutoring, special needs services for a special needs student, books, supplies, and other equipment. Ez 1040 form Room and board and uniforms that are required or provided by the school in connection with enrollment or attendance. Ez 1040 form Local transportation. Ez 1040 form   The source of a local transportation fringe benefit is determined based on the location of your principal place of work. Ez 1040 form Your local transportation fringe benefit is the amount that you receive as compensation for local transportation for you or your spouse or dependents at the location of your principal place of work. Ez 1040 form The amount treated as a local transportation fringe benefit is limited to actual expenses incurred for local transportation and the fair rental value of any employer-provided vehicle used predominantly by you, your spouse, or your dependents for local transportation. Ez 1040 form Actual expenses do not include the cost (including interest) of any vehicle purchased by you or on your behalf. Ez 1040 form Tax reimbursement. Ez 1040 form   The source of a tax reimbursement fringe benefit is determined based on the location of the jurisdiction that imposed the tax for which you are reimbursed. Ez 1040 form Moving expense reimbursement. Ez 1040 form   The source of a moving expense reimbursement is generally based on the location of your new principal place of work. Ez 1040 form However, the source is determined based on the location of your former principal place of work if you provide sufficient evidence that such determination of source is more appropriate under the facts and circumstances of your case. Ez 1040 form Sufficient evidence generally requires an agreement between you and your employer, or a written statement of company policy, which is reduced to writing before the move and which is entered into or established to induce you or other employees to move to another country. Ez 1040 form The written statement or agreement must state that your employer will reimburse you for moving expenses that you incur to return to your former principal place of work regardless of whether you continue to work for your employer after returning to that location. Ez 1040 form It may contain certain conditions upon which the right to reimbursement is determined as long as those conditions set forth standards that are definitely ascertainable and can only be fulfilled prior to, or through completion of, your return move to your former principal place of work. Ez 1040 form Alternative Basis If you are an employee, you can determine the source of your compensation under an alternative basis if you establish to the satisfaction of the IRS that, under the facts and circumstances of your case, the alternative basis more properly determines the source of your compensation than the time or geographical basis. Ez 1040 form If you use an alternative basis, you must keep (and have available for inspection) records to document why the alternative basis more properly determines the source of your compensation. Ez 1040 form Also, if your total compensation from all sources is $250,000 or more, check “Yes” to both questions on line K on page 5 of Form 1040NR, and attach a written statement to your tax return that sets forth all of the following. Ez 1040 form Your name and social security number (written across the top of the statement). Ez 1040 form The specific compensation income, or the specific fringe benefit, for which you are using the alternative basis. Ez 1040 form For each item in (2), the alternative basis of allocation of source used. Ez 1040 form For each item in (2), a computation showing how the alternative allocation was computed. Ez 1040 form A comparison of the dollar amount of the U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form compensation and foreign compensation sourced under both the alternative basis and the time or geographical basis discussed earlier. Ez 1040 form Transportation Income Transportation income is income from the use of a vessel or aircraft or for the performance of services directly related to the use of any vessel or aircraft. Ez 1040 form This is true whether the vessel or aircraft is owned, hired, or leased. Ez 1040 form The term “vessel or aircraft” includes any container used in connection with a vessel or aircraft. Ez 1040 form All income from transportation that begins and ends in the United States is treated as derived from sources in the United States. Ez 1040 form If the transportation begins or ends in the United States, 50% of the transportation income is treated as derived from sources in the United States. Ez 1040 form For transportation income from personal services, 50% of the income is U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source income if the transportation is between the United States and a U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form possession. Ez 1040 form For nonresident aliens, this only applies to income derived from, or in connection with, an aircraft. Ez 1040 form For information on how U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source transportation income is taxed, see chapter 4. Ez 1040 form Scholarships, Grants, Prizes, and Awards Generally, the source of scholarships, fellowship grants, grants, prizes, and awards is the residence of the payer regardless of who actually disburses the funds. Ez 1040 form However, see Activities to be performed outside the United States , later. Ez 1040 form For example, payments for research or study in the United States made by the United States, a noncorporate U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form resident, or a domestic corporation, are from U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form sources. Ez 1040 form Similar payments from a foreign government or foreign corporation are foreign source payments even though the funds may be disbursed through a U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form agent. Ez 1040 form Payments made by an entity designated as a public international organization under the International Organizations Immunities Act are from foreign sources. Ez 1040 form Activities to be performed outside the United States. Ez 1040 form   Scholarships, fellowship grants, targeted grants, and achievement awards received by nonresident aliens for activities performed, or to be performed, outside the United States are not U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source income. Ez 1040 form    These rules do not apply to amounts paid as salary or other compensation for services. Ez 1040 form See Personal Services, earlier, for the source rules that apply. Ez 1040 form Pensions and Annuities If you receive a pension from a domestic trust for services performed both in and outside the United States, part of the pension payment is from U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form sources. Ez 1040 form That part is the amount attributable to earnings of the pension plan and the employer contributions made for services performed in the United States. Ez 1040 form This applies whether the distribution is made under a qualified or nonqualified stock bonus, pension, profit-sharing, or annuity plan (whether or not funded). Ez 1040 form If you performed services as an employee of the United States, you may receive a distribution from the U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form Government under a plan, such as the Civil Service Retirement System, that is treated as a qualified pension plan. Ez 1040 form Your U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source income is the otherwise taxable amount of the distribution that is attributable to your total U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form Government basic pay other than tax-exempt pay for services performed outside the United States. Ez 1040 form Rents or Royalties Your U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source income includes rent and royalty income received during the tax year from property located in the United States or from any interest in that property. Ez 1040 form U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source income also includes rents or royalties for the use of, or for the privilege of using, in the United States, intangible property such as patents, copyrights, secret processes and formulas, goodwill, trademarks, franchises, and similar property. Ez 1040 form Real Property Real property is land and buildings and generally anything built on, growing on, or attached to land. Ez 1040 form Gross income from sources in the United States includes gains, profits, and income from the sale or other disposition of real property located in the United States. Ez 1040 form Natural resources. Ez 1040 form   The income from the sale of products of any farm, mine, oil or gas well, other natural deposit, or timber located in the United States and sold in a foreign country, or located in a foreign country and sold in the United States, is partly from sources in the United States. Ez 1040 form For information on determining that part, see section 1. Ez 1040 form 863-1(b) of the regulations. Ez 1040 form Table 2-1. Ez 1040 form Summary of Source Rules for Income of Nonresident Aliens Item of income Factor determining source Salaries, wages, other compensation Where services performed Business income:   Personal services Where services performed Sale of inventory—purchased Where sold Sale of inventory—produced Allocation Interest Residence of payer Dividends Whether a U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form or foreign corporation* Rents Location of property Royalties:   Natural resources Location of property Patents, copyrights, etc. Ez 1040 form Where property is used Sale of real property Location of property Sale of personal property Seller's tax home (but see Personal Property , later, for exceptions) Pension distributions attributable to contributions Where services were performed that earned the pension Investment earnings on pension contributions Location of pension trust Sale of natural resources Allocation based on fair market value of product at export terminal. Ez 1040 form For more information, see section 1. Ez 1040 form 863-1(b) of the regulations. Ez 1040 form *Exceptions include: a) Dividends paid by a U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form corporation are foreign source if the corporation elects the  American Samoa economic development credit. Ez 1040 form  b) Part of a dividend paid by a foreign corporation is U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source if at least 25% of the  corporation's gross income is effectively connected with a U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form trade or business for the  3 tax years before the year in which the dividends are declared. Ez 1040 form Personal Property Personal property is property, such as machinery, equipment, or furniture, that is not real property. Ez 1040 form Gain or loss from the sale or exchange of personal property generally has its source in the United States if you have a tax home in the United States. Ez 1040 form If you do not have a tax home in the United States, the gain or loss generally is considered to be from sources outside the United States. Ez 1040 form Tax home. Ez 1040 form   Your tax home is the general area of your main place of business, employment, or post of duty, regardless of where you maintain your family home. Ez 1040 form Your tax home is the place where you permanently or indefinitely work as an employee or a self-employed individual. Ez 1040 form If you do not have a regular or main place of business because of the nature of your work, then your tax home is the place where you regularly live. Ez 1040 form If you do not fit either of these categories, you are considered an itinerant and your tax home is wherever you work. Ez 1040 form Inventory property. Ez 1040 form   Inventory property is personal property that is stock in trade or that is held primarily for sale to customers in the ordinary course of your trade or business. Ez 1040 form Income from the sale of inventory that you purchased is sourced where the property is sold. Ez 1040 form Generally, this is where title to the property passes to the buyer. Ez 1040 form For example, income from the sale of inventory in the United States is U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source income, whether you purchased it in the United States or in a foreign country. Ez 1040 form   Income from the sale of inventory property that you produced in the United States and sold outside the United States (or vice versa) is partly from sources in the United States and partly from sources outside the United States. Ez 1040 form For information on making this allocation, see section 1. Ez 1040 form 863-3 of the regulations. Ez 1040 form   These rules apply even if your tax home is not in the United States. Ez 1040 form Depreciable property. Ez 1040 form   To determine the source of any gain from the sale of depreciable personal property, you must first figure the part of the gain that is not more than the total depreciation adjustments on the property. Ez 1040 form You allocate this part of the gain to sources in the United States based on the ratio of U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form depreciation adjustments to total depreciation adjustments. Ez 1040 form The rest of this part of the gain is considered to be from sources outside the United States. Ez 1040 form   For this purpose, “U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form depreciation adjustments” are the depreciation adjustments to the basis of the property that are allowable in figuring taxable income from U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form sources. Ez 1040 form However, if the property is used predominantly in the United States during a tax year, all depreciation deductions allowable for that year are treated as U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form depreciation adjustments. Ez 1040 form But there are some exceptions for certain transportation, communications, and other property used internationally. Ez 1040 form   Gain from the sale of depreciable property that is more than the total depreciation adjustments on the property is sourced as if the property were inventory property, as discussed above. Ez 1040 form   A loss is sourced in the same way as the depreciation deductions were sourced. Ez 1040 form However, if the property was used predominantly in the United States, the entire loss reduces U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source income. Ez 1040 form   The basis of property usually means the cost (money plus the fair market value of other property or services) of property you acquire. Ez 1040 form Depreciation is an amount deducted to recover the cost or other basis of a trade or business asset. Ez 1040 form The amount you can deduct depends on the property's cost, when you began using the property, how long it will take to recover your cost, and which depreciation method you use. Ez 1040 form A depreciation deduction is any deduction for depreciation or amortization or any other allowable deduction that treats a capital expenditure as a deductible expense. Ez 1040 form Intangible property. Ez 1040 form   Intangible property includes patents, copyrights, secret processes or formulas, goodwill, trademarks, trade names, or other like property. Ez 1040 form The gain from the sale of amortizable or depreciable intangible property, up to the previously allowable amortization or depreciation deductions, is sourced in the same way as the original deductions were sourced. Ez 1040 form This is the same as the source rule for gain from the sale of depreciable property. Ez 1040 form See Depreciable property , earlier, for details on how to apply this rule. Ez 1040 form   Gain in excess of the amortization or depreciation deductions is sourced in the country where the property is used if the income from the sale is contingent on the productivity, use, or disposition of that property. Ez 1040 form If the income is not contingent on the productivity, use, or disposition of the property, the income is sourced according to your tax home as discussed earlier. Ez 1040 form If payments for goodwill do not depend on its productivity, use, or disposition, their source is the country in which the goodwill was generated. Ez 1040 form Sales through offices or fixed places of business. Ez 1040 form   Despite any of the earlier rules, if you do not have a tax home in the United States, but you maintain an office or other fixed place of business in the United States, treat the income from any sale of personal property (including inventory property) that is attributable to that office or place of business as U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source income. Ez 1040 form However, this rule does not apply to sales of inventory property for use, disposition, or consumption outside the United States if your office or other fixed place of business outside the United States materially participated in the sale. Ez 1040 form   If you have a tax home in the United States but maintain an office or other fixed place of business outside the United States, income from sales of personal property, other than inventory, depreciable property, or intangibles, that is attributable to that foreign office or place of business may be treated as U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source income. Ez 1040 form The income is treated as U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form source income if an income tax of less than 10% of the income from the sale is paid to a foreign country. Ez 1040 form This rule also applies to losses if the foreign country would have imposed an income tax of less than 10% had the sale resulted in a gain. Ez 1040 form Community Income If you are married and you or your spouse is subject to the community property laws of a foreign country, a U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form state, or a U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form possession, you generally must follow those laws to determine the income of yourself and your spouse for U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form tax purposes. Ez 1040 form But you must disregard certain community property laws if: Both you and your spouse are nonresident aliens, or One of you is a nonresident alien and the other is a U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form citizen or resident and you do not both choose to be treated as U. Ez 1040 form S. Ez 1040 form residents as explained in chapter 1. Ez 1040 form In these cases, you and your spouse must report community income as explained later. Ez 1040 form Earned income. Ez 1040 form   Earned income of a spouse, other than trade or business income and a partner's distributive share of partnership income, is treated as the income of the spouse whose services produced the income. Ez 1040 form That spouse must report all of it on his or her separate return. Ez 1040 form Trade or business income. Ez 1040 form   Trade or business income, other than a partner's distributive share of partnership income, is treated as the income of the spouse carrying on the trade or business. Ez 1040 form That spouse must report all of it on his or her separate return. Ez 1040 form Partnership income (or loss). Ez 1040 form   A partner's distributive share of partnership income (or loss) is treated as the income (or loss) of the partner. Ez 1040 form The partner must report all of it on his or her separate return. Ez 1040 form Separate property income. Ez 1040 form   Income derived from the separate property of one spouse (and which is not earned income, trade or business income, or partnership distributive share income) is treated as the income of that spouse. Ez 1040 form That spouse must report all of it on his or her separate return. Ez 1040 form Use the appropriate community property law to determine what is separate property. Ez 1040 form Other community income. Ez 1040 form   All other community income is treated as provided by the applicable community property laws.
