File 1040ez S. File 1040ez income tax return is required for your situation. File 1040ez If a U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez return is required, your next step is to see if you meet the filing requirements. File 1040ez If you do meet the filing requirements, the information presented in this chapter will help you understand the special procedures involved. File 1040ez This chapter discusses: Filing requirements, When to file your return, Where to send your return, How to adjust your deductions and credits if you are excluding income from American Samoa or Puerto Rico, How to make estimated tax payments and pay self-employment tax, and How to request assistance in resolving instances of double taxation. File 1040ez Who Must File If you are not required to file a possession tax return that includes your worldwide income, you must generally file a U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez income tax return if your gross income is at least the amount shown in Table 4-1, later, for your filing status and age. File 1040ez If you were a bona fide resident of American Samoa or Puerto Rico and are able to exclude your possession income from your U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez tax return, your filing requirement may be less than the amount in Table 4-1. File 1040ez For details, see the information under Filing Requirement if Possession Income Is Excluded , later. File 1040ez Some individuals (such as those who can be claimed as a dependent on another person's return or who owe certain taxes, such as self-employment tax) must file a tax return even though the gross income is less than the amount shown in Table 4-1 for their filing status and age. File 1040ez For more information, see the Form 1040 instructions. File 1040ez Filing Requirement if Possession Income Is Excluded If you were a bona fide resident of American Samoa or Puerto Rico and qualify to exclude possession income on your U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez tax return, you must determine your adjusted filing requirement. File 1040ez Generally, your filing requirement is based on the total of your (and your spouse's if filing a joint return) personal exemption(s) plus your standard deduction. File 1040ez Personal exemption. File 1040ez   When figuring your filing requirement, your personal exemption is allowed in full. File 1040ez Do not reduce it for this purpose. File 1040ez Do not include exemptions for your dependents. File 1040ez Allowable standard deduction. File 1040ez   Unless your filing status is married filing separately, the minimum income level at which you must file a return is based, in part, on the standard deduction for your filing status and age. File 1040ez Because the standard deduction applies to all types of income, it must be divided between your excluded income and income from other sources. File 1040ez Multiply the regular standard deduction for your filing status and age (this is zero if you are married filing a separate return; all others, see Form 1040 instructions) by the following fraction:      Gross income subject to U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez income tax     Gross income from all sources (including excluded possession income)   Example. File 1040ez Barbara Spruce, a U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez citizen, is single, under 65, and a bona fide resident of American Samoa. File 1040ez During 2013, she received $20,000 of income from American Samoa sources (qualifies for exclusion) and $8,000 of income from sources outside the possession (subject to U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez income tax). File 1040ez Her allowable standard deduction for 2013 is figured as follows:   $8,000 $28,000 × $6,100 (regular standard deduction) = $1,743   Adjusted filing requirement. File 1040ez   Figure your adjusted filing requirement by adding the amount of your allowable standard deduction to the amount of your personal exemption. File 1040ez You must file a U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez income tax return if your gross income is at least the amount shown on line 3 of the following worksheet. File 1040ez    1. File 1040ez Enter the allowable standard deduction you figured earlier under Allowable standard deduction . File 1040ez If your filing status is married filing separately, enter -0-   2. File 1040ez Personal exemption. File 1040ez If your filing status is married filing jointly, enter $7,800; if someone can claim you as a dependent, enter -0-; otherwise, enter $3,900   3. File 1040ez Add lines 1 and 2. File 1040ez You must file a U. File 1040ez S.

File 1040ez ** Gross income means all income you received in the form of money, goods, property, and services that is not exempt from tax, including any income from sources outside the United States (even if you can exclude part or all of it). File 1040ez Do not include social security benefits unless (a) you are married filing a separate return and you lived with your spouse at any time during 2013, or (b) one-half of your social security benefits plus your other gross income is more than $25,000 ($32,000 if married filing jointly). File 1040ez If (a) or (b) applies, see the instructions for Form 1040 or Publication 915, Social Security and Equivalent Railroad Retirement Benefits, to figure the taxable part of social security benefits you must include in gross income. File 1040ez *** If you did not live with your spouse at the end of 2013 (or on the date your spouse died) and your gross income was at least $3,900 you must file a return regardless of your age. File 1040ez Example 1. File 1040ez James and Joan Thompson, one over 65, are U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez citizens and bona fide residents of Puerto Rico during the entire tax year. File 1040ez They file a joint income tax return. File 1040ez During 2013, they received $35,000 of income from Puerto Rico sources (qualifies for exclusion) and $6,000 of income from sources outside Puerto Rico (subject to U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez income tax). File 1040ez Their allowable standard deduction for 2013 is figured as follows:   $6,000 $41,000 × $13,400 ( standard deduction for 65 or older (one spouse) ) = $1,961   The Thompsons do not have to file a U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez income tax return because their gross income subject to U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez tax ($6,000) is less than their allowable standard deduction plus their personal exemptions ($1,961+ $7,800= $9,761). File 1040ez Example 2. File 1040ez Barbara Spruce (see Example under Allowable standard deduction, earlier), however, must file a U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez income tax return because her gross income subject to U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez tax ($8,000) is more than her allowable standard deduction plus her personal exemption ($1,743 + $3,900 = $5,643). File 1040ez If you must file a U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez income tax return, you may be able to file a paperless return using IRS e-file. File 1040ez See your form instructions or visit our website at IRS. File 1040ez gov.

File 1040ez Once you begin serving your extended active duty, you are still considered to have been on extended active duty even if you do not serve more than 90 days. File 1040ez Income from American Samoa or Puerto Rico excluded. File 1040ez   You will not be allowed to take deductions and credits that apply to the excluded income. File 1040ez The additional information you need follows. File 1040ez Deductions if Possession Income Is Excluded Deductions that specifically apply to your excluded possession income, such as employee business expenses, are not allowable on your U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez income tax return. File 1040ez Deductions that do not specifically apply to any particular type of income must be divided between your excluded income from sources in the relevant possession and income from all other sources to find the part that you can deduct on your U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez tax return. File 1040ez Examples of such deductions are alimony payments, the standard deduction, and certain itemized deductions (such as medical expenses, charitable contributions, real estate taxes, and mortgage interest on your home). File 1040ez Figuring the deduction. File 1040ez   To find the part of a deduction that is allowable, multiply the deduction by the following fraction. File 1040ez   Gross income subject to U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez income tax     Gross income from all sources (including excluded possession income)   Adjustments to Income Your adjusted gross income equals your gross income minus certain deductions (adjustments). File 1040ez Moving expense deduction. File 1040ez   Generally, expenses of a move to a possession are directly attributable to wages, salaries, and other earned income from that possession. File 1040ez Likewise, the expenses of a move back to the United States are generally attributable to U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez earned income. File 1040ez   If you are claiming expenses for a move to a relevant possession, how and where you will deduct the expenses depends on your status as a bona fide resident and if any of your possession income is excluded on your U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez tax return. File 1040ez For more information, see Moving expense deduction in chapter 3 under the name of the relevant possession. File 1040ez   If you are claiming expenses for a move from a U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez possession to the United States, use Form 3903 to figure your deductible expenses and enter the amount on Form 1040, line 26. File 1040ez For purposes of deducting moving expenses, the possessions are considered part of the United States. File 1040ez See Publication 521, Moving Expenses, for information about what expenses are deductible. File 1040ez Self-employment tax deduction. File 1040ez   Generally, if you are reporting self-employment income on your U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez return, you can include the deductible part of your self-employment tax on Form 1040, line 27. File 1040ez This is an income tax deduction only; it is not a deduction in figuring net earnings from self-employment (for self-employment tax). File 1040ez   However, if you are a bona fide resident of American Samoa or Puerto Rico and you exclude all of your self-employment income from gross income, you cannot take the deduction on Form 1040, line 27, because the deduction is related to excluded income. File 1040ez   If only part of your self-employment income is excluded, the part of the deduction that is based on the nonexcluded income is allowed. File 1040ez This would happen if, for instance, you have two businesses and only the income from one of them is excludable. File 1040ez   For purposes of the deduction only, figure the self-employment tax on the nonexcluded income by multiplying your total self-employment tax (from Schedule SE (Form 1040)), Self-Employment Tax) by the following fraction. File 1040ez   Self-employment income subject to U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez income tax     Total self-employment income (including excluded possession income)   The result is your self-employment tax on nonexcluded income. File 1040ez Include the deductible part of this amount on Form 1040, line 27. File 1040ez Individual retirement arrangement (IRA) deduction. File 1040ez   Do not take excluded income into account when figuring your deductible IRA contribution. File 1040ez Standard Deduction The standard deduction is composed of the regular standard deduction amount and the additional standard deduction for taxpayers who are blind or age 65 or over. File 1040ez To find the amount you can claim on Form 1040, line 40, first figure your full standard deduction according to the Instructions for Form 1040. File 1040ez Then multiply your full standard deduction by the following fraction. File 1040ez   Gross income subject to U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez income tax     Gross income from all sources (including excluded possession income)   In the space above line 40, enter “Standard deduction modified due to income excluded under section 931 (if American Samoa) or section 933 (if Puerto Rico). File 1040ez ” This calculation may not be the same as the one you used to determine if you need to file a U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez tax return. File 1040ez Itemized Deductions Most itemized deductions do not apply to a particular type of income. File 1040ez However, itemized deductions can be divided into three categories. File 1040ez Those that apply specifically to excluded income, such as employee business expenses, are not deductible. File 1040ez Those that apply specifically to income subject to U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez income tax, which might also be employee business expenses, are fully allowable under the Instructions for Schedule A (Form 1040), Itemized Deductions. File 1040ez Those that do not apply to specific income must be allocated between your gross income subject to U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez income tax and your total gross income from all sources. File 1040ez The example given later shows how to figure the deductible part of each type of expense that is not related to specific income. File 1040ez Example. File 1040ez In 2013, you and your spouse are both under 65 and U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez citizens who are bona fide residents of Puerto Rico during the entire tax year. File 1040ez You file a joint income tax return. File 1040ez During 2013, you earned $20,000 from Puerto Rican sources (excluded from U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez gross income) and your spouse earned $60,000 from the U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez Government. File 1040ez You have $16,000 of itemized deductions that do not apply to any specific type of income. File 1040ez These are medical expenses of $4,000, real estate taxes of $5,000, home mortgage interest of $6,000, and charitable contributions of $1,000 (cash contributions). File 1040ez You determine the amount of each deduction that you can claim on your Schedule A (Form 1040), Itemized Deductions, by multiplying the deduction by the fraction shown under Figuring the deduction , earlier under Deductions if Possession Income is Excluded. File 1040ez   Medical Expenses   $60,000$80,000 × $4,000 = $3,000  (enter on line 1  of Schedule A)     Real Estate Taxes   $60,000$80,000 × $5,000 = $3,750  (enter on line 6  of Schedule A)     Home Mortgage Interest   $60,000$80,000 × $6,000 = $4,500  (enter on line 10 or 11 of  Schedule A)     Charitable Contributions (cash contributions)   $60,000$80,000 × $1,000 = $750  (enter on line 16 of Schedule A)   Enter on Schedule A (Form 1040) only the allowable portion of each deduction. File 1040ez Overall limitation on itemized deductions. File 1040ez   If your adjusted gross income (discussed earlier) is over $300,000 if married filing jointly or qualifying widow(er); $275,000 if head of household; $250,000 if single; or $150,000 if married filing separately; see the Itemized Deductions Worksheet in the Instructions for Schedule A (Form 1040), to figure your itemized deductions. File 1040ez Personal Exemptions Personal exemptions are allowed in full even if excluding possession income. File 1040ez However, depending upon your adjusted gross income and filing status, the amount you can deduct may be reduced. File 1040ez See the Deduction for Exemptions Worksheet—Line 42 in the instructions for Form 1040. File 1040ez Foreign Tax Credit if Possession Income Is Excluded If you must report American Samoa or Puerto Rico source income on your U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez tax return, you can claim a foreign tax credit for income taxes paid to the possession on that income. File 1040ez However, you cannot claim a foreign tax credit for taxes paid on possession income that is excluded on your U. File 1040ez S. File 1040ez tax return. File 1040ez The foreign tax credit is generally figured on Form 1116. File 1040ez If you have income, such as U. File 1040ez S.
