Irs forms 1040nr This chapter explains the following. Irs forms 1040nr Who qualifies for the credit for the elderly or the disabled. Irs forms 1040nr How to claim the credit. Irs forms 1040nr You may be able to take the credit for the elderly or the disabled if: You are age 65 or older at the end of 2013, or You retired on permanent and total disability and have taxable disability income. Irs forms 1040nr Useful Items - You may want to see: Publication 524 Credit for the Elderly or the Disabled 554 Tax Guide for Seniors Form (and Instruction) Schedule R (Form 1040A or 1040) Credit for the Elderly or the Disabled Are You Eligible for the Credit? You can take the credit for the elderly or the disabled if you meet both of the following requirements. Irs forms 1040nr You are a qualified individual. Irs forms 1040nr Your income is not more than certain limits. Irs forms 1040nr You can use Figure 33-A and Table 33-1 as guides to see if you are eligible for the credit. Irs forms 1040nr Use Figure 33-A first to see if you are a qualified individual. Irs forms 1040nr If you are, go to Table 33-1 to make sure your income is not too high to take the credit. Irs forms 1040nr You can take the credit only if you file Form 1040 or Form 1040A. Irs forms 1040nr You cannot take the credit if you file Form 1040EZ. Irs forms 1040nr Qualified Individual You are a qualified individual for this credit if you are a U. Irs forms 1040nr S. Irs forms 1040nr citizen or resident alien, and either of the following applies. Irs forms 1040nr You were age 65 or older at the end of 2013. Irs forms 1040nr You were under age 65 at the end of 2013 and all three of the following statements are true. Irs forms 1040nr You retired on permanent and total disability (explained later). Irs forms 1040nr You received taxable disability income for 2013. Irs forms 1040nr On January 1, 2013, you had not reached mandatory retirement age (defined later under Disability income ). Irs forms 1040nr Age 65. Irs forms 1040nr   You are considered to be age 65 on the day before your 65th birthday. Irs forms 1040nr Therefore, if you were born on January 1, 1949, you are considered to be age 65 at the end of 2013. Irs forms 1040nr U. Irs forms 1040nr S. Irs forms 1040nr Citizen or Resident Alien You must be a U. Irs forms 1040nr S. Irs forms 1040nr citizen or resident alien (or be treated as a resident alien) to take the credit. Irs forms 1040nr Generally, you cannot take the credit if you were a nonresident alien at any time during the tax year. Irs forms 1040nr Exceptions. Irs forms 1040nr   You may be able to take the credit if you are a nonresident alien who is married to a U. Irs forms 1040nr S. Irs forms 1040nr citizen or resident alien at the end of the tax year and you and your spouse choose to treat you as a U. Irs forms 1040nr S. Irs forms 1040nr resident alien. Irs forms 1040nr If you make that choice, both you and your spouse are taxed on your worldwide incomes. Irs forms 1040nr If you were a nonresident alien at the beginning of the year and a resident alien at the end of the year, and you were married to a U. Irs forms 1040nr S. Irs forms 1040nr citizen or resident alien at the end of the year, you may be able to choose to be treated as a U. Irs forms 1040nr S. Irs forms 1040nr resident alien for the entire year. Irs forms 1040nr In that case, you may be allowed to take the credit. Irs forms 1040nr For information on these choices, see chapter 1 of Publication 519, U. Irs forms 1040nr S. Irs forms 1040nr Tax Guide for Aliens. Irs forms 1040nr Married Persons Generally, if you are married at the end of the tax year, you and your spouse must file a joint return to take the credit. Irs forms 1040nr However, if you and your spouse did not live in the same household at any time during the tax year, you can file either a joint return or separate returns and still take the credit. Irs forms 1040nr Head of household. Irs forms 1040nr   You can file as head of household and qualify to take the credit, even if your spouse lived with you during the first 6 months of the year, if you meet certain tests. Irs forms 1040nr See Head of Household in chapter 2 for the tests you must meet. Irs forms 1040nr Under Age 65 If you are under age 65 at the end of 2013, you can qualify for the credit only if you are retired on permanent and total disability (discussed next) and have taxable disability income (discussed later under Disability income ). Irs forms 1040nr You are retired on permanent and total disability if: You were permanently and totally disabled when you retired, and You retired on disability before the close of the tax year. Irs forms 1040nr Even if you do not retire formally, you may be considered retired on disability when you have stopped working because of your disability. Irs forms 1040nr If you retired on disability before 1977, and were not permanently and totally disabled at the time, you can qualify for the credit if you were permanently and totally disabled on January 1, 1976, or January 1, 1977. Irs forms 1040nr Permanent and total disability. Irs forms 1040nr    You are permanently and totally disabled if you cannot engage in any substantial gainful activity because of your physical or mental condition. Irs forms 1040nr A qualified physician must certify that the condition has lasted or can be expected to last continuously for 12 months or more, or that the condition can be expected to result in death. Irs forms 1040nr See Physician's statement , later. Irs forms 1040nr Substantial gainful activity. Irs forms 1040nr   Substantial gainful activity is the performance of significant duties over a reasonable period of time while working for pay or profit, or in work generally done for pay or profit. Irs forms 1040nr Full-time work (or part-time work done at your employer's convenience) in a competitive work situation for at least the minimum wage conclusively shows that you are able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Irs forms 1040nr   Substantial gainful activity is not work you do to take care of yourself or your home. Irs forms 1040nr It is not unpaid work on hobbies, institutional therapy or training, school attendance, clubs, social programs, and similar activities. Irs forms 1040nr However, doing this kind of work may show that you are able to engage in substantial gainful activity. Irs forms 1040nr    The fact that you have not worked for some time is not, of itself, conclusive evidence that you cannot engage in substantial gainful activity. Irs forms 1040nr Sheltered employment. Irs forms 1040nr   Certain work offered at qualified locations to physically or mentally impaired persons is considered sheltered employment. Irs forms 1040nr These qualified locations are in sheltered workshops, hospitals, and similar institutions, homebound programs, and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) sponsored homes. Irs forms 1040nr   Compared to commercial employment, pay is lower for sheltered employment. Irs forms 1040nr Therefore, one usually does not look for sheltered employment if he or she can get other employment. Irs forms 1040nr The fact that one has accepted sheltered employment is not proof of the person's ability to engage in substantial gainful activity. Irs forms 1040nr Physician's statement. Irs forms 1040nr   If you are under age 65, you must have your physician complete a statement certifying that you were permanently and totally disabled on the date you retired. Irs forms 1040nr You can use the statement in the Instructions for Schedule R. Irs forms 1040nr    Figure 33-A. Irs forms 1040nr Are You a Qualified Individual? This image is too large to be displayed in the current screen. Irs forms 1040nr Please click the link to view the image. Irs forms 1040nr Figure 33-A Are You a Qualified Individual?   You do not have to file this statement with your Form 1040 or Form 1040A, but you must keep it for your records. Irs forms 1040nr Veterans. Irs forms 1040nr   If the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) certifies that you are permanently and totally disabled, you can substitute VA Form 21-0172, Certification of Permanent and Total Disability, for the physician's statement you are required to keep. Irs forms 1040nr VA Form 21-0172 must be signed by a person authorized by the VA to do so. Irs forms 1040nr You can get this form from your local VA regional office. Irs forms 1040nr Physician's statement obtained in earlier year. Irs forms 1040nr   If you got a physician's statement in an earlier year and, due to your continued disabled condition, you were unable to engage in any substantial gainful activity during 2013, you may not need to get another physician's statement for 2013. Irs forms 1040nr For a detailed explanation of the conditions you must meet, see the instructions for Schedule R, Part II. Irs forms 1040nr If you meet the required conditions, check the box on your Schedule R, Part II, line 2. Irs forms 1040nr   If you checked box 4, 5, or 6 in Part I of Schedule R, enter in the space above the box on line 2 in Part II the first name(s) of the spouse(s) for whom the box is checked.

Irs forms 1040nr Disability income. Irs forms 1040nr   If you are under age 65, you must also have taxable disability income to qualify for the credit. Irs forms 1040nr Disability income must meet both of the following requirements. Irs forms 1040nr It must be paid under your employer's accident or health plan or pension plan. Irs forms 1040nr It must be included in your income as wages (or payments instead of wages) for the time you are absent from work because of permanent and total disability. Irs forms 1040nr Payments that are not disability income. Irs forms 1040nr   Any payment you receive from a plan that does not provide for disability retirement is not disability income. Irs forms 1040nr Any lump-sum payment for accrued annual leave that you receive when you retire on disability is a salary payment and is not disability income. Irs forms 1040nr   For purposes of the credit for the elderly or the disabled, disability income does not include amounts you receive after you reach mandatory retirement age. Irs forms 1040nr Mandatory retirement age is the age set by your employer at which you would have had to retire, had you not become disabled. Irs forms 1040nr Income Limits To determine if you can claim the credit, you must consider two income limits. Irs forms 1040nr The first limit is the amount of your adjusted gross income (AGI). Irs forms 1040nr The second limit is the amount of nontaxable social security and other nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income you received. Irs forms 1040nr The limits are shown in Table 33-1. Irs forms 1040nr If your AGI and nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income are less than the income limits, you may be able to claim the credit. Irs forms 1040nr See How to Claim the Credit , later. Irs forms 1040nr If either your AGI or your nontaxable pensions, annuities, or disability income are equal to or more than the income limits, you cannot take the credit. Irs forms 1040nr How to Claim the Credit You can figure the credit yourself or the Internal Revenue Service will figure it for you. Irs forms 1040nr Credit Figured for You If you choose to have the IRS figure the credit for you, read the following discussion for the form you will file (Form 1040 or 1040A). Irs forms 1040nr If you want the IRS to figure your tax, see chapter 30. Irs forms 1040nr Form 1040. Irs forms 1040nr   If you want the IRS to figure your credit, see Form 1040 Line Entries under Tax Figured by IRS in chapter 30. Irs forms 1040nr Form 1040A. Irs forms 1040nr   If you want the IRS to figure your credit, see Form 1040A Line Entries under Tax Figured by IRS in chapter 30. Irs forms 1040nr Credit Figured by You If you choose to figure the credit yourself, fill out the front of Schedule R. Irs forms 1040nr Next, fill out Schedule R, Part III. Irs forms 1040nr If you file Form 1040A, enter the amount from Schedule R, line 22, on Form 1040A, line 30. Irs forms 1040nr If you file Form 1040, include the amount from Schedule R, line 22, on line 53; check box c, and enter “Sch R” on the line next to that box.

Topic 506 - Charitable Contributions

Charitable contributions are deductible only if you itemize deductions on Form 1040, Schedule A (PDF).

To be deductible, charitable contributions must be made to qualified organizations. Payments to individuals are never deductible. See Publication 526, Charitable Contributions. To determine if the organization that you have contributed to qualifies as a charitable organization for income tax deductions, review Exempt Organizations Select Check on the IRS.gov website.

If your contribution entitles you to merchandise, goods, or services, including admission to a charity ball, banquet, theatrical performance, or sporting event, you can deduct only the amount that exceeds the fair market value of the benefit received.

For a contribution of cash, check, or other monetary gift (regardless of amount), you must maintain as a record of the contribution a bank record or a written communication from the qualified organization containing the name of the organization, the date of the contribution, and the amount of the contribution. In addition to deducting your cash contributions, you generally can deduct the fair market value of any other property you donate to qualified organizations. See Publication 561, Determining the Value of Donated Property. For any contribution of $250 or more (including contributions of cash or property), you must obtain and keep in your records a contemporaneous written acknowledgment from the qualified organization indicating the amount of the cash and a description of any property contributed. The acknowledgment must say whether the organization provided any goods or services in exchange for the gift and, if so, must provide a description and a good faith estimate of the value of those goods or services. One document from the qualified organization may satisfy both the written communication requirement for monetary gifts and the contemporaneous written acknowledgment requirement for all contributions of $250 or more.

You must fill out Form 8283 (PDF), and attach it to your return, if your deduction for a noncash contribution is more than $500. If you claim a deduction for a contribution of noncash property worth $5,000 or less, you must fill out Form 8283, Section A. If you claim a deduction for a contribution of noncash property worth more than $5,000, you will need a qualified appraisal of the noncash property and must fill out Form 8283, Section B. If you claim a deduction for a contribution of noncash property worth more than $500,000, you also will need to attach the qualified appraisal to your return.

Special rules apply to donations of certain types of property such as automobiles, inventory and investments that have appreciated in value. For more information, refer to Publication 526, Charitable Contributions. For information on determining the value of your noncash contributions, refer to Publication 561, Determining the Value of Donated Property.
