Firstgov gov Introduction You can receive income in the form of money, property, or services. Firstgov gov This publication discusses many kinds of income and explains whether they are taxable or nontaxable. Firstgov gov It includes discussions on employee wages and fringe benefits, and income from bartering, partnerships, S corporations, and royalties. Firstgov gov It also includes information on disability pensions, life insurance proceeds, and welfare and other public assistance benefits. Firstgov gov Check the index for the location of a specific subject. Firstgov gov In most cases, an amount included in your income is taxable unless it is specifically exempted by law. Firstgov gov Income that is taxable must be reported on your return and is subject to tax. Firstgov gov Income that is nontaxable may have to be shown on your tax return but is not taxable. Firstgov gov Constructively received income. Firstgov gov   You are generally taxed on income that is available to you, regardless of whether it is actually in your possession. Firstgov gov    A valid check that you received or that was made available to you before the end of the tax year is considered income constructively received in that year, even if you do not cash the check or deposit it to your account until the next year. Firstgov gov For example, if the postal service tries to deliver a check to you on the last day of the tax year but you are not at home to receive it, you must include the amount in your income for that tax year. Firstgov gov If the check was mailed so that it could not possibly reach you until after the end of the tax year, and you otherwise could not get the funds before the end of the year, you include the amount in your income for the next tax year. Firstgov gov Assignment of income. Firstgov gov   Income received by an agent for you is income you constructively received in the year the agent received it. Firstgov gov If you agree by contract that a third party is to receive income for you, you must include the amount in your income when the third party receives it. Firstgov gov Example. Firstgov gov You and your employer agree that part of your salary is to be paid directly to one of your creditors. Firstgov gov You must include that amount in your income when your creditor receives it. Firstgov gov Prepaid income. Firstgov gov   In most cases, prepaid income, such as compensation for future services, is included in your income in the year you receive it. Firstgov gov However, if you use an accrual method of accounting, you can defer prepaid income you receive for services to be performed before the end of the next tax year. Firstgov gov In this case, you include the payment in your income as you earn it by performing the services. Firstgov gov Comments and suggestions.
