Hr block free efile 2. Hr block free efile   Possession Source Income Table of Contents Types of IncomeCompensation for Labor or Personal Services Investment Income Sales or Other Dispositions of Property Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, Prizes, and Awards Effectively Connected Income In order to determine where to file your return and which form(s) you need to complete, you must determine the source of each item of income you received during the tax year. Hr block free efile Income you received from sources within, or that was effectively connected with the conduct of a trade or business within, the relevant possession must be identified separately from U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile or foreign source income. Hr block free efile This chapter discusses the rules for determining if the source of your income is from: American Samoa, The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI), The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (Puerto Rico), Guam, or The U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile Virgin Islands (USVI). Hr block free efile Generally, the same rules that apply for determining U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile source income also apply for determining possession source income. Hr block free efile However, there are some important exceptions to these rules. Hr block free efile Both the general rules and the exceptions are discussed in this chapter. Hr block free efile U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile income rule. Hr block free efile   This rule states that income is not possession source income if, under the rules of Internal Revenue Code sections 861–865, it is treated as income: From sources within the United States, or Effectively connected with the conduct of a trade or business within the United States. Hr block free efile Table 2-1 shows the general rules for determining whether income is from sources within the United States. Hr block free efile Table 2-1. Hr block free efile General Rules for Determining U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile Source of Income Item of Income Factor Determining Source Salaries, wages, and other compensation for labor or personal services Where labor or services performed Pensions Contributions: Where services were performed that earned the pension Investment earnings: Where pension trust is located Interest Residence of payer Dividends Where corporation created or organized Rents Location of property Royalties:   Natural resources Location of property Patents, copyrights, etc. Hr block free efile Where property is used Sale of business inventory—purchased Where sold Sale of business inventory—produced Allocation if produced and sold in different locations Sale of real property Location of property Sale of personal property Seller's tax home (but see Special Rules for Gains From Dispositions of Certain Property , later, for exceptions) Sale of natural resources Allocation based on fair market value of product at export terminal. Hr block free efile For more information, see Regulations section 1. Hr block free efile 863-1(b). Hr block free efile Types of Income This section looks at the most common types of income received by individuals, and the rules for determining the source of the income. Hr block free efile Generally, the same rules shown in Table 2-1 are used to determine if you have possession source income. Hr block free efile Compensation for Labor or Personal Services Income from labor or personal services includes wages, salaries, commissions, fees, per diem allowances, employee allowances and bonuses, and fringe benefits. Hr block free efile It also includes income earned by sole proprietors and general partners from providing personal services in the course of their trade or business. Hr block free efile Services performed wholly within a relevant possession. Hr block free efile   Generally, all pay you receive for services performed in a relevant possession is considered to be from sources within that possession. Hr block free efile However, there is an exception for income earned as a member of the U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile Armed Forces or a civilian spouse. Hr block free efile U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile Armed Forces. Hr block free efile   If you are a bona fide resident of a relevant possession, your military service pay will be sourced in that possession even if you perform the services in the United States or another possession. Hr block free efile However, if you are not a bona fide resident of a possession, your military service pay will be income from the  United States even if you perform services in a possession. Hr block free efile Civilian spouse of active duty member of the U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile Armed Forces. Hr block free efile   If you are a bona fide resident of a U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile possession and choose to keep that possession as your tax residence under MSRRA when relocating with your servicemember spouse under military orders, the source of income for your labor or personal services is considered to be that possession. Hr block free efile Likewise, if your tax residence is in one of the 50 states or the District of Columbia before relocating and you choose to keep it as your tax residence, the source of income for services performed in any of the U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile possessions is considered to be the United States and, specifically, your state of residence or the District of Columbia. Hr block free efile Services performed partly inside and partly outside a relevant possession. Hr block free efile   If you are an employee and receive compensation for labor or personal services performed both inside and outside the relevant possession, special rules apply in determining the source of the compensation. Hr block free efile Compensation (other than certain fringe benefits) is sourced on a time basis. Hr block free efile Certain fringe benefits (such as housing and education) are sourced on a geographical basis. Hr block free efile   Or, you may be permitted to use an alternative basis to determine the source of compensation. Hr block free efile See Alternative basis , later. Hr block free efile   If you are self-employed, determine the source of your income 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. Hr block free efile In many cases, the facts and circumstances will call for an apportionment on a time basis as explained next. Hr block free efile Time basis. Hr block free efile   Use a time basis to figure your compensation for labor or personal services from the relevant possession (other than the fringe benefits discussed later). Hr block free efile 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 relevant  possession 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. Hr block free efile The time period for which the income is made does not have to be a year. Hr block free efile 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. Hr block free efile Example. Hr block free efile In 2013, you worked in your employer's office in the United States for 60 days and in the Puerto Rico office for 180 days, earning a total of $80,000 for the year. Hr block free efile Your Puerto Rico source income is $60,000, figured as follows. Hr block free efile       180 days 240 days × $80,000 = $60,000                 Multi-year compensation. Hr block free efile   The source of multi-year compensation is generally determined on a time basis over the period to which the compensation is attributable. Hr block free efile Multi-year compensation is compensation that is included in your income in 1 tax year but is attributable to a period that includes 2 or more tax years. Hr block free efile You determine the period to which the income is attributable based on the facts and circumstances of your case. Hr block free efile For more information on multi-year compensation, see Treasury Decision (T. Hr block free efile D. Hr block free efile ) 9212 and Regulations section 1. Hr block free efile 861-4, 2005-35 I. Hr block free efile R. Hr block free efile B. Hr block free efile 429, available at www. Hr block free efile irs. Hr block free efile gov/irb/2005-35_IRB/ar14. Hr block free efile html. Hr block free efile Certain fringe benefits sourced on a geographical basis. Hr block free efile   If you received any of the following fringe benefits as compensation for labor or services performed as an employee partly inside and partly outside a relevant possession, you must source that income on a geographical basis. Hr block free efile Housing. Hr block free efile Education. Hr block free efile Local transportation. Hr block free efile Tax reimbursement. Hr block free efile Hazardous or hardship duty pay. Hr block free efile Moving expense reimbursement. Hr block free efile For information on determining the source of the fringe benefits listed above, see Regulations section 1. Hr block free efile 861-4. Hr block free efile Alternative basis. Hr block free efile   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 income than the time or geographical basis. Hr block free efile 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 income. Hr block free efile De minimis exception. Hr block free efile   There is an exception to the rule for determining the source of income earned in a possession. Hr block free efile Generally, you will not have income from a possession if during a tax year you: Are a U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile citizen or resident, Are not a bona fide resident of that possession, Are not employed by or under contract with an individual, partnership, or corporation that is engaged in a trade or business in that possession, Temporarily perform services in that possession for 90 days or less, and Earned $3,000 or less from such services. Hr block free efile This exception began with income earned during your 2008 tax year. Hr block free efile Pensions. Hr block free efile   Generally, pension income has two components: contributions to the pension plan and the earnings accrued from investing those contributions. Hr block free efile The contribution portion is sourced according to where services were performed that earned the pension. Hr block free efile The investment earnings portion is sourced according to the location of the pension trust. Hr block free efile Example. Hr block free efile You are a U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile citizen who worked in Puerto Rico for a U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile company. Hr block free efile All services were performed in Puerto Rico. Hr block free efile Upon retirement you remained in Puerto Rico and began receiving your pension from the U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile pension trust of your employer. Hr block free efile Distributions from the U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile pension trust must be allocated between (1) contributions, which are Puerto Rico source income, and (2) investment earnings, which are U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile source income. Hr block free efile Investment Income This category includes such income as interest, dividends, rents, and royalties. Hr block free efile Interest income. Hr block free efile   The source of interest income is generally determined by the residence of the payer. Hr block free efile Interest paid by corporations created or organized in a relevant possession (possession corporation) or by individuals who are bona fide residents of a relevant possession is considered income from sources within that possession. Hr block free efile   However, there is an exception to this rule if you are a bona fide resident of a relevant possession, receive interest from a corporation created or organized in that possession, and are a shareholder of that corporation who owns, directly or indirectly, at least 10% of the total voting stock of the corporation. Hr block free efile See Regulations section 1. Hr block free efile 937-2(i) for more information. Hr block free efile Dividends. Hr block free efile   Generally, dividends paid by a corporation created or organized in a relevant possession will be considered income from sources within that possession. Hr block free efile There are additional rules for bona fide residents of a relevant possession who receive dividend income from possession corporations, and who own, directly or indirectly, at least 10% of the voting stock of the corporation. Hr block free efile For more information, see Regulations section 1. Hr block free efile 937-2(g). Hr block free efile Rental income. Hr block free efile   Rents from property located in a relevant possession are treated as income from sources within that possession. Hr block free efile Royalties. Hr block free efile   Royalties from natural resources located in a relevant possession are considered income from sources within that possession. Hr block free efile   Also considered possession source income are royalties received for the use of, or for the privilege of using, in a relevant possession, patents, copyrights, secret processes and formulas, goodwill, trademarks, trade brands, franchises, and other like property. Hr block free efile Sales or Other Dispositions of Property The source rules for sales or other dispositions of property are varied. Hr block free efile The most common situations are discussed below. Hr block free efile Real property. Hr block free efile   Real property includes land and buildings, and generally anything built on, growing on, or attached to land. Hr block free efile The location of the property generally determines the source of income from the sale. Hr block free efile For example, if you are a bona fide resident of Guam and sell your home that is located in Guam, the gain on the sale is sourced in Guam. Hr block free efile If, however, the home you sold was located in the United States, the gain is U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile source income. Hr block free efile Personal property. Hr block free efile   The term “personal property” refers to property (such as machinery, equipment, or furniture) that is not real property. Hr block free efile Generally, gain (or loss) from the sale or other disposition is sourced according to the seller's tax home. Hr block free efile If personal property is sold by a bona fide resident of a relevant possession, the gain (or loss) from the sale is treated as sourced within that possession. Hr block free efile   This rule does not apply to the sale of inventory, intangible property, depreciable personal property, or property sold through a foreign office or fixed place of business. Hr block free efile The rules applying to sales of inventory are discussed below. Hr block free efile For information on sales of the other types of property mentioned, see Internal Revenue Code section 865. Hr block free efile Inventory. Hr block free efile   Your inventory 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. Hr block free efile The source of income from the sale of inventory depends on whether the inventory was purchased or produced. Hr block free efile Purchased. Hr block free efile   Income from the sale of inventory that you purchased is sourced where you sell the property. Hr block free efile Generally, this is where title to the property passes to the buyer. Hr block free efile Produced. Hr block free efile   Income from the sale of inventory that you produced in a relevant possession and sold outside that possession (or vice versa) is sourced based on an allocation. Hr block free efile For information on making the allocation, see Regulations section 1. Hr block free efile 863-3(f). Hr block free efile Special Rules for Gains From Dispositions of Certain Property There are special rules for gains from dispositions of certain investment property (for example, stocks, bonds, debt instruments, diamonds, and gold) owned by a U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile citizen or resident alien prior to becoming a bona fide resident of a possession. Hr block free efile You are subject to these special rules if you meet both of the following conditions. Hr block free efile For the tax year for which the source of the gain must be determined, you are a bona fide resident of the relevant possession. Hr block free efile For any of the 10 years preceding that year, you were a citizen or resident alien of the United States (other than a bona fide resident of the relevant possession). Hr block free efile If you meet these conditions, gains from the disposition of this property will not be treated as income from sources within the relevant possession for purposes of the Internal Revenue Code. Hr block free efile Accordingly, bona fide residents of American Samoa and Puerto Rico, for example, may not exclude the gain on their U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile tax return. Hr block free efile (See chapter 3 for additional filing information. Hr block free efile ) With respect to the CNMI, Guam, and the USVI, the gain from the disposition of this property will not meet the requirements for certain tax rules that may allow bona fide residents of those possessions to reduce or obtain a rebate of taxes on income from sources within the relevant possessions. Hr block free efile These rules apply to dispositions after April 11, 2005. Hr block free efile For details, see Regulations section 1. Hr block free efile 937-2(f)(1) and Examples 1 and 2 of section 1. Hr block free efile 937-2(k). Hr block free efile Example 1. Hr block free efile In 2007, Cheryl Jones, a U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile citizen, lived in the United States and paid $1,000 for 100 shares of stock in the Rose Corporation, a U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile corporation listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Hr block free efile On March 1, 2010, she moved to Puerto Rico and changed her tax home to Puerto Rico on the same date. Hr block free efile Cheryl satisfied the presence test in 2010 and, under the year-of-move exception, she was considered a bona fide resident of Puerto Rico for the rest of 2010. Hr block free efile On March 1, 2010, the closing value of Cheryl's stock in the Rose Corporation was $2,000. Hr block free efile On January 5, 2013, while still a bona fide resident of Puerto Rico, Cheryl sold all her Rose Corporation stock for $7,000. Hr block free efile Under the earlier rules, none of Cheryl's $6,000 gain will be treated as income from sources within Puerto Rico. Hr block free efile The source rules discussed in the preceding paragraphs supplement, and may apply in conjunction with, an existing special rule. Hr block free efile This existing special rule applies if you are a U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile citizen or resident alien who becomes a bona fide resident of American Samoa, the CNMI, or Guam, and who has gain from the disposition of certain U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile assets during the 10-year period beginning when you became a bona fide resident. Hr block free efile The gain is U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile source income that generally is subject to U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile tax if the property is either (1) located in the United States; (2) stock issued by a U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile corporation or a debt obligation of a U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile person or of the United States, a state (or political subdivision), or the District of Columbia; or (3) property that has a basis in whole or in part by reference to property described in (1) or (2). Hr block free efile See chapter 3 for filing information. Hr block free efile Special election. Hr block free efile   For dispositions after April 11, 2005, you can choose to treat the part of gain (or loss) attributable to the time you held the property while a bona fide resident of the relevant possession (the possession holding period) as gain (or loss) from sources within that possession. Hr block free efile Make the election by reporting the gain attributable to the possession holding period on your income tax return for the year of disposition. Hr block free efile This election overrides both of the special rules discussed earlier. Hr block free efile   There are two methods for figuring the gain for the possession holding period, one for marketable securities and another for other types of investment property. Hr block free efile Marketable securities. Hr block free efile   Marketable securities are those actively traded on an established financial market, such as stock in a publicly held corporation. Hr block free efile Under the special election, allocate the gain (or loss) by figuring the appreciation separately for your possession and U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile holding periods. Hr block free efile   Your possession holding period begins on the first day you do not have a tax home outside the relevant possession. Hr block free efile The gain (or loss) attributable to the possession holding period is the difference in fair market value of the security at the close of the market on the first and last days of this holding period. Hr block free efile This is your gain (or loss) that is treated as being from sources within the relevant possession. Hr block free efile If you were a bona fide resident of the relevant possession for more than one continuous period, combine the gains (or losses) from each possession holding period. Hr block free efile Example 2. Hr block free efile Assume the same facts as in Example 1, except that Cheryl makes the special election to allocate the gain between her U. Hr block free efile S. Hr block free efile and possession holding periods. Hr block free efile Cheryl's possession holding period began March 1, 2010, the date her tax home changed to Puerto Rico. Hr block free efile Therefore, the portion of gain attributable to her possession holding period is $5,000 ($7,000 sale price – $2,000 closing value on first day of the possession holding period). Hr block free efile By reporting $5,000 of her $6,000 gain as Puerto Rico source income on her 2013 Puerto Rico tax return (and the remainder as non-Puerto Rico source income), Cheryl elects to treat that amount as Puerto Rico source income. Hr block free efile Other personal property. Hr block free efile   For personal property other than marketable securities, use a time-based allocation. Hr block free efile Figure the gain (or loss) attributable to the possession holding period by multiplying your total gain (or loss) by the following fraction. Hr block free efile      Number of days in the  possession holding period     Total number of days  in your holding period         The result is your gain (or loss) that is treated as being from sources within the relevant possession. Hr block free efile Example 3. Hr block free efile In addition to the stock in Rose Corporation, Cheryl acquired a 5% interest in the Alder Partnership on January 1, 2009. Hr block free efile On March 1, 2010, when she established bona fide residency in Puerto Rico, her partnership interest was not considered a marketable security. Hr block free efile On September 16, 2013, while still a bona fide resident of Puerto Rico, Cheryl sold her interest in Alder Partnership for a $100,000 gain. Hr block free efile She had owned the interest for a total of 1,720 days. Hr block free efile Cheryl's possession holding period (from March 1, 2010, through September 16, 2013) is 1,296 days. Hr block free efile The portion of her gain attributable to Puerto Rico is $75,349 ($100,000 x (1,296 Puerto Rico days ÷ 1,720 total days)). Hr block free efile By reporting $75,349 of her $100,000 gain as Puerto Rico source income on her 2013 Puerto Rico tax return (and the remainder as non-Puerto Rico source income), Cheryl elects to treat that amount as Puerto Rico source income. Hr block free efile Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, Prizes, and Awards The source of these types of income is generally the residence of the payer, regardless of who actually disburses the funds. Hr block free efile Therefore, in order to be possession source income, the payer must be a resident of the relevant possession, such as an individual who is a bona fide resident or a corporation created or organized in that possession. Hr block free efile These rules do not apply to amounts paid as salary or other compensation for services. Hr block free efile See Compensation for Labor or Personal Services, earlier in this chapter, for the source rules that apply. Hr block free efile Effectively Connected Income In limited circumstances, some kinds of income from sources outside the relevant possession must be treated as effectively connected with a trade or business in that possession. Hr block free efile These circumstances are listed below. Hr block free efile You have an office or other fixed place of business in the relevant possession to which the income can be attributed. Hr block free efile That office or place of business is a material factor in producing the income. Hr block free efile The income is produced in the ordinary course of the trade or business carried on through that office or other fixed place of business. Hr block free efile An office or other fixed place of business is a material factor if it significantly contributes to, and is an essential economic element in, the earning of the income. Hr block free efile The three kinds of income from sources outside the relevant possession to which these rules apply are the following. Hr block free efile Rents and royalties for the use of, or for the privilege of using, intangible personal property located outside the relevant possession or from any interest in such property. Hr block free efile Included are rents or royalties for the use of, or for the privilege of using, outside the relevant possession, patents, copyrights, secret processes and formulas, goodwill, trademarks, trade brands, franchises, and similar properties if the rents or royalties are from the active conduct of a trade or business in the relevant possession. Hr block free efile Dividends or interest from the active conduct of a banking, financing, or similar business in the relevant possession. Hr block free efile Income, gain, or loss from the sale or exchange outside the relevant possession, through the office or other fixed place of business in the relevant possession, of: Stock in trade, Property that would be included in inventory if on hand at the end of the tax year, or Property held primarily for sale to customers in the ordinary course of business. Hr block free efile Item (3) will not apply if you sold the property for use, consumption, or disposition outside the relevant possession and an office or other fixed place of business in a foreign country was a material factor in the sale. Hr block free efile Example. Hr block free efile Marcy Jackson is a bona fide resident of American Samoa. Hr block free efile Her business, which she conducts from an office in American Samoa, is developing and selling specialized computer software. Hr block free efile A software purchaser will frequently pay Marcy an additional amount to install the software on the purchaser's operating system and to ensure that the software is functioning properly. Hr block free efile Marcy installs the software at the purchaser's place of business, which may be in American Samoa, in the United States, or in another country. Hr block free efile The income from selling the software is effectively connected with the conduct of Marcy's business in American Samoa, even though the product's destination may be outside the possession. Hr block free efile However, the compensation she receives for installing the software (personal services) outside of American Samoa is not effectively connected with the conduct of her business in the possession—the income is sourced where she performs the services.
