Irs forms 2012 taxes Should a Return Be Filed Even If Not Required? Even if a dependent does not meet any of the filing requirements discussed earlier, he or she should file a tax return if either of the following applies.

Irs forms 2012 taxes He or she qualifies for the earned income credit, additional child tax credit, health coverage tax credit, or refundable American opportunity education credit. Irs forms 2012 taxes See the tax return instructions to find out who qualifies for these credits. Irs forms 2012 taxes  By filing a return, the dependent can get a refund. Irs forms 2012 taxes Responsibility for Child's Return Generally, a child is responsible for filing his or her own tax return and for paying any tax, penalties, or interest on that return. Irs forms 2012 taxes If a child cannot file his or her own return for any reason, such as age, the child's parent, guardian, or other legally responsible person must file it for the child. Irs forms 2012 taxes Signing the child's return. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If the child cannot sign his or her return, a parent or guardian must sign the child's name followed by the words “By (signature), parent (or guardian) for minor child. Irs forms 2012 taxes ” Authority of parent or guardian. Irs forms 2012 taxes   A parent or guardian who signs a return on a child's behalf can deal with the IRS on all matters connected with the return. Irs forms 2012 taxes   In general, a parent or guardian who does not sign the child's return can only provide information concerning the child's return and pay the child's tax. Irs forms 2012 taxes That parent or guardian is not entitled to receive information from the IRS or legally bind the child to a tax liability arising from the return. Irs forms 2012 taxes Third party designee. Irs forms 2012 taxes   A child's parent or guardian who does not sign the child's return may be authorized, as a third party designee, to discuss the processing of the return with the IRS as well as provide information concerning the return. Irs forms 2012 taxes The child or the person signing the return on the child's behalf must check the “Yes” box in the “Third Party Designee” area of the return and name the parent or guardian as the designee. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If designated, a parent or guardian can respond to certain IRS notices and receive information about the processing of the return and the status of a refund or payment. Irs forms 2012 taxes This designation does not authorize the parent or guardian to receive any refund check, bind the child to any tax liability, or otherwise represent the child before the IRS. Irs forms 2012 taxes See the return instructions for more information. Irs forms 2012 taxes Designated as representative. Irs forms 2012 taxes   A parent or guardian who does not sign the child's return may be designated as the child's representative by the child or the person signing the return on the child's behalf. Irs forms 2012 taxes Form 2848, Power of Attorney and Declaration of Representative, is used to designate a child's representative. Irs forms 2012 taxes See Publication 947, Practice Before the IRS and Power of Attorney, for more information. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If designated, a parent or guardian can receive information about the child's return but cannot legally bind the child to a tax liability unless authorized to do so by the law of the state in which the child lives. Irs forms 2012 taxes IRS notice. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If you or the child receives a notice from the IRS concerning the child's return or tax liability, you should immediately inform the IRS that the notice concerns a child. Irs forms 2012 taxes The notice will show who to contact. Irs forms 2012 taxes The IRS will try to resolve the matter with the parent(s) or guardian(s) of the child consistent with their authority. Irs forms 2012 taxes Child's earnings. Irs forms 2012 taxes   For federal income tax purposes, amounts a child earns by performing services are included in the gross income of the child and not the gross income of the parent. Irs forms 2012 taxes This is true even if, under state law, the parent has the right to the earnings and may actually have received them. Irs forms 2012 taxes If the child does not pay the tax due on this income, the parent may be liable for the tax. Irs forms 2012 taxes Child's expenses. Irs forms 2012 taxes   Deductions for payments that are made out of a child's earnings are the child's, even if the payments are made by the parent. Irs forms 2012 taxes Example. Irs forms 2012 taxes You made payments on your child's behalf that are deductible as a business expense and a charitable contribution. Irs forms 2012 taxes You made the payments out of your child's earnings. Irs forms 2012 taxes These items can be deducted only on the child's return. Irs forms 2012 taxes Standard Deduction The standard deduction for an individual who can be claimed as a dependent on another person's tax return is generally limited to the larger of: $1,000, or The individual's earned income plus $350, but not more than the regular standard deduction (generally $6,100). Irs forms 2012 taxes However, the standard deduction may be higher for a dependent who: Is 65 or older, or Is blind. Irs forms 2012 taxes Certain dependents cannot claim any standard deduction. Irs forms 2012 taxes See Standard Deduction of Zero , later. Irs forms 2012 taxes Worksheet 1. Irs forms 2012 taxes   Use Worksheet 1 to figure the dependent's standard deduction.

Irs forms 2012 taxes Amy, who is single, is claimed as a dependent on her parents' tax return. Irs forms 2012 taxes She is 18 years old and blind. Irs forms 2012 taxes She has taxable interest income of $1,000 and wages of $2,000. Irs forms 2012 taxes She enters $2,350 (her earned income plus $350) on line 1 of Worksheet 1. Irs forms 2012 taxes She enters $2,350 (the larger of $2,350 or $1,000) on line 3, $6,100 on line 4, and $2,350 (the smaller of $2,350 or $6,100) on line 5a. Irs forms 2012 taxes Because Amy is blind, she checks the box for blindness and enters “1” in box c at the top of Worksheet 1. Irs forms 2012 taxes She enters $1,500 (the number in box c times $1,500) on line 5b. Irs forms 2012 taxes Her standard deduction on line 5c is $3,850 ($2,350 + $1,500). Irs forms 2012 taxes Standard Deduction of Zero The standard deduction for the following dependents is zero. Irs forms 2012 taxes A married dependent filing a separate return whose spouse itemizes deductions. Irs forms 2012 taxes A dependent who files a return for a period of less than 12 months due to a change in his or her annual accounting period. Irs forms 2012 taxes A nonresident or dual-status alien dependent, unless the dependent is married to a U. Irs forms 2012 taxes S. Irs forms 2012 taxes citizen or resident alien at the end of the year and chooses to be treated as a U. Irs forms 2012 taxes S. Irs forms 2012 taxes resident for the year. Irs forms 2012 taxes See Publication 519, U. Irs forms 2012 taxes S. Irs forms 2012 taxes Tax Guide for Aliens, for information on making this choice. Irs forms 2012 taxes Example. Irs forms 2012 taxes Jennifer, who is a dependent of her parents, is entitled to file a joint return with her husband. Irs forms 2012 taxes However, her husband elects to file a separate return and itemize his deductions. Irs forms 2012 taxes Because he itemizes, Jennifer's standard deduction on her return is zero. Irs forms 2012 taxes She can, however, itemize any of her allowable deductions. Irs forms 2012 taxes Dependent's Own Exemption A person who can be claimed as a dependent on another taxpayer's return cannot claim his or her own exemption. Irs forms 2012 taxes This is true even if the other taxpayer does not actually claim the exemption. Irs forms 2012 taxes Example. Irs forms 2012 taxes James and Barbara can claim their child, Ben, as a dependent on their return. Irs forms 2012 taxes Ben is a college student who works during the summer and must file a tax return. Irs forms 2012 taxes Ben cannot claim his own exemption on his return. Irs forms 2012 taxes This is true even if James and Barbara do not claim him as a dependent on their return. Irs forms 2012 taxes Withholding From Wages Employers generally withhold federal income tax, social security tax, and Medicare tax from an employee's wages. Irs forms 2012 taxes If the employee claims exemption from withholding on Form W-4, the employer will not withhold federal income tax. Irs forms 2012 taxes The exemption from withholding does not apply to social security and Medicare taxes. Irs forms 2012 taxes Conditions for exemption from withholding. Irs forms 2012 taxes   An employee can claim exemption from withholding for 2014 only if he or she meets both of the following conditions. Irs forms 2012 taxes For 2013, the employee had a right to a refund of all federal income tax withheld because he or she had no tax liability. Irs forms 2012 taxes For 2014, the employee expects a refund of all federal income tax withheld because he or she expects to have no tax liability. Irs forms 2012 taxes Dependents. Irs forms 2012 taxes   An employee who is a dependent ordinarily cannot claim exemption from withholding if both of the following are true. Irs forms 2012 taxes The employee's gross income will be more than $1,000, the minimum standard deduction for 2014. Irs forms 2012 taxes The employee's unearned income will be more than $350. Irs forms 2012 taxes Exceptions. Irs forms 2012 taxes   An employee may be able to claim exemption from withholding even if the employee is a dependent, if the employee: Is age 65 or older, Is blind, or Will claim on his or her 2014 tax return: Adjustments to income, Tax credits, or Itemized deductions. Irs forms 2012 taxes The above exceptions do not apply to supplemental wages greater than $1,000,000. Irs forms 2012 taxes For more information, see Exemption From Withholding in chapter 1 of Publication 505. Irs forms 2012 taxes Example. Irs forms 2012 taxes Guy is 17 and a student. Irs forms 2012 taxes During the summer he works part time at a grocery store. Irs forms 2012 taxes He expects to earn about $1,200 this year. Irs forms 2012 taxes He also worked at the store last summer and received a refund of all his withheld income tax because he did not have a tax liability. Irs forms 2012 taxes The only other income he expects during the year is $375 interest on a savings account. Irs forms 2012 taxes He expects that his parents will be able to claim him as a dependent on their tax return. Irs forms 2012 taxes He is not blind and will not claim adjustments to income, itemized deductions, a higher standard deduction, or tax credits on his return. Irs forms 2012 taxes Guy cannot claim exemption from withholding when he fills out Form W-4 because his parents will be able to claim him as a dependent, his gross income will be more than $1,000 (the minimum standard deduction amount) and his unearned income will be more than $350. Irs forms 2012 taxes Claiming exemption from withholding. Irs forms 2012 taxes    To claim exemption from withholding, an employee must enter “Exempt” in the space provided on Form W-4, line 7. Irs forms 2012 taxes The employee must complete the rest of the form, as explained in the form instructions, and give it to his or her employer. Irs forms 2012 taxes Renewing an exemption from withholding. Irs forms 2012 taxes   An exemption from withholding is good for only one year. Irs forms 2012 taxes An employee must file a new Form W-4 by February 15 each year to continue the exemption. Irs forms 2012 taxes Part 2. Irs forms 2012 taxes Tax on Unearned Income of Certain Children The two rules that follow may affect the tax on the unearned income of certain children. Irs forms 2012 taxes If the child's interest and dividend income (including capital gain distributions) total less than $10,000, the child's parent may be able to choose to include that income on the parent's return rather than file a return for the child. Irs forms 2012 taxes (See Parent's Election To Report Child's Interest and Dividends , later. Irs forms 2012 taxes ) If the child's interest, dividends, and other unearned income total more than $2,000, part of that income may be taxed at the parent's tax rate instead of the child's tax rate. Irs forms 2012 taxes (See Tax for Certain Children Who Have Unearned Income , later. Irs forms 2012 taxes ) For these rules, the term “child” includes a legally adopted child and a stepchild. Irs forms 2012 taxes These rules apply whether or not the child is a dependent. Irs forms 2012 taxes These rules do not apply if neither of the child's parents were living at the end of the year. Irs forms 2012 taxes Which Parent's Return To Use If a child's parents are married to each other and file a joint return, use the joint return to figure the tax on the child's unearned income. Irs forms 2012 taxes The tax rate and other return information from that return are used to figure the child's tax as explained later under Tax for Certain Children Who Have Unearned Income . Irs forms 2012 taxes Parents Who Do Not File a Joint Return For parents who do not file a joint return, the following discussions explain which parent's tax return must be used to figure the tax. Irs forms 2012 taxes Only the parent whose tax return is used can make the election described under Parent's Election To Report Child's Interest and Dividends . Irs forms 2012 taxes Parents are married. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If the child's parents file separate returns, use the return of the parent with the greater taxable income. Irs forms 2012 taxes Parents not living together. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If the child's parents are married to each other but not living together, and the parent with whom the child lives (the custodial parent) is considered unmarried, use the return of the custodial parent. Irs forms 2012 taxes If the custodial parent is not considered unmarried, use the return of the parent with the greater taxable income. Irs forms 2012 taxes   For an explanation of when a married person living apart from his or her spouse is considered unmarried, see Head of Household in Publication 501. Irs forms 2012 taxes Parents are divorced. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If the child's parents are divorced or legally separated, and the parent who had custody of the child for the greater part of the year (the custodial parent) has not remarried, use the return of the custodial parent. Irs forms 2012 taxes Custodial parent remarried. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If the custodial parent has remarried, the stepparent (rather than the noncustodial parent) is treated as the child's other parent. Irs forms 2012 taxes Therefore, if the custodial parent and the stepparent file a joint return, use that joint return. Irs forms 2012 taxes Do not use the return of the noncustodial parent. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If the custodial parent and the stepparent are married, but file separate returns, use the return of the one with the greater taxable income. Irs forms 2012 taxes If the custodial parent and the stepparent are married but not living together, the earlier discussion under Parents not living together applies. Irs forms 2012 taxes Parents never married. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If a child's parents have never been married to each other, but lived together all year, use the return of the parent with the greater taxable income. Irs forms 2012 taxes If the parents did not live together all year, the rules explained earlier under Parents are divorced apply. Irs forms 2012 taxes Widowed parent remarried. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If a widow or widower remarries, the new spouse is treated as the child's other parent. Irs forms 2012 taxes The rules explained earlier under Custodial parent remarried apply. Irs forms 2012 taxes Parent's Election To Report Child's Interest and Dividends You may be able to elect to include your child's interest and dividend income (including capital gain distributions) on your tax return. Irs forms 2012 taxes If you do, your child will not have to file a return. Irs forms 2012 taxes You can make this election only if all the following conditions are met. Irs forms 2012 taxes Your child was under age 19 (or under age 24 if a full-time student) at the end of the year. Irs forms 2012 taxes Your child had income only from interest and dividends (including capital gain distributions and Alaska Permanent Fund dividends). Irs forms 2012 taxes The child's gross income was less than $10,000. Irs forms 2012 taxes The child is required to file a return unless you make this election. Irs forms 2012 taxes The child does not file a joint return for the year. Irs forms 2012 taxes No estimated tax payment was made for the year, and no overpayment from the previous year (or from any amended return) was applied to this year under your child's name and social security number. Irs forms 2012 taxes No federal income tax was withheld from your child's income under the backup withholding rules. Irs forms 2012 taxes You are the parent whose return must be used when applying the special tax rules for children. Irs forms 2012 taxes (See Which Parent's Return To Use , earlier. Irs forms 2012 taxes ) These conditions are also shown in Figure 1. Irs forms 2012 taxes Certain January 1 birthdays. Irs forms 2012 taxes   A child born on January 1, 1995, is considered to be age 19 at the end of 2013. Irs forms 2012 taxes You cannot make this election for such a child unless the child was a full-time student. Irs forms 2012 taxes   A child born on January 1, 1990, is considered to be age 24 at the end of 2013. Irs forms 2012 taxes You cannot make this election for such a child. Irs forms 2012 taxes How to make the election. Irs forms 2012 taxes    Make the election by attaching Form 8814 to your Form 1040 or Form 1040NR. Irs forms 2012 taxes (If you make this election, you cannot file Form 1040A or Form 1040EZ. Irs forms 2012 taxes ) Attach a separate Form 8814 for each child for whom you make the election. Irs forms 2012 taxes You can make the election for one or more children and not for others. Irs forms 2012 taxes Effect of Making the Election The federal income tax on your child's income may be more if you make the Form 8814 election. Irs forms 2012 taxes Rate may be higher. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If your child received qualified dividends or capital gain distributions, you may pay up to $100 more tax if you make this election instead of filing a separate tax return for the child. Irs forms 2012 taxes This is because the tax rate on the child's income between $1,000 and $2,000 is 10% if you make this election. Irs forms 2012 taxes However, if you file a separate return for the child, the tax rate may be as low as 0% (zero percent) because of the preferential tax rates for qualified dividends and capital gain distributions. Irs forms 2012 taxes Deductions you cannot take. Irs forms 2012 taxes   By making the Form 8814 election, you cannot take any of the following deductions that the child would be entitled to on his or her return. Irs forms 2012 taxes The additional standard deduction if the child is blind. Irs forms 2012 taxes The deduction for a penalty on an early withdrawal of your child's savings. Irs forms 2012 taxes Itemized deductions (such as your child's investment expenses or charitable contributions). Irs forms 2012 taxes Figure 1. Irs forms 2012 taxes Can You Include Your Child's Income On Your Tax Return? Please click here for the text description of the image. Irs forms 2012 taxes Figure 1. Irs forms 2012 taxes Can You Include Your Child's Income On Your Tax Return? Deductible investment interest. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If you use Form 8814, your child's unearned income is considered your unearned income. Irs forms 2012 taxes To figure the limit on your deductible investment interest, add the child's unearned income to yours. Irs forms 2012 taxes However, if your child received qualified dividends, capital gain distributions, or Alaska Permanent Fund dividends, see chapter 3 of Publication 550 for information about how to figure the limit. Irs forms 2012 taxes Alternative minimum tax. Irs forms 2012 taxes    If your child received tax-exempt interest (or exempt-interest dividends paid by a regulated investment company) from certain private activity bonds, you must determine if that interest is a tax preference item for alternative minimum tax (AMT) purposes. Irs forms 2012 taxes If it is, you must include it with your own tax preference items when figuring your AMT. Irs forms 2012 taxes See Form 6251, Alternative Minimum Tax—Individuals, and its instructions for details. Irs forms 2012 taxes Reduced deductions or credits. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If you use Form 8814, your increased adjusted gross income may reduce certain deductions or credits on your return, including the following. Irs forms 2012 taxes Deduction for contributions to a traditional individual retirement arrangement (IRA). Irs forms 2012 taxes Deduction for student loan interest. Irs forms 2012 taxes Itemized deductions for medical expenses, casualty and theft losses, and certain miscellaneous expenses. Irs forms 2012 taxes Credit for child and dependent care expenses. Irs forms 2012 taxes Child tax credit. Irs forms 2012 taxes Education tax credits. Irs forms 2012 taxes Earned income credit. Irs forms 2012 taxes Penalty for underpayment of estimated tax. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If you make this election for 2013 and did not have enough tax withheld or pay enough estimated tax to cover the tax you owe, you may be subject to a penalty. Irs forms 2012 taxes If you plan to make this election for 2014, you may need to increase your federal income tax withholding or your estimated tax payments to avoid the penalty. Irs forms 2012 taxes Get Publication 505 for more information. Irs forms 2012 taxes Figuring Child's Income Use Form 8814, Part I, to figure your child's interest and dividend income to report on your return. Irs forms 2012 taxes Only the amount over $2,000 is added to your income. Irs forms 2012 taxes The amount over $2,000 is shown on Form 8814, line 6. Irs forms 2012 taxes Unless the child's income includes qualified dividends or capital gain distributions (discussed next), the same amount is shown on Form 8814, line 12. Irs forms 2012 taxes Include the amount from Form 8814, line 12, on Form 1040 or Form 1040NR, line 21. Irs forms 2012 taxes If you file more than one Form 8814, include the total amounts from line 12 of all your Forms 8814 on Form 1040 or Form 1040NR, line 21. Irs forms 2012 taxes On the dotted line next to line 21, enter “Form 8814” and the total of the Form 8814, line 12 amounts. Irs forms 2012 taxes Note. Irs forms 2012 taxes The tax on the first $2,000 is figured on Form 8814, Part II. Irs forms 2012 taxes See Figuring Additional Tax , later. Irs forms 2012 taxes Qualified dividends. Irs forms 2012 taxes   Enter on Form 8814, line 2a, any ordinary dividends your child received. Irs forms 2012 taxes This amount may include qualified dividends. Irs forms 2012 taxes Qualified dividends are those dividends reported on Form 1040, line 9b, or Form 1040NR, line 10b, and are eligible for lower tax rates that apply to a net capital gain. Irs forms 2012 taxes For detailed information about qualified dividends, see Publication 550. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If your child received qualified dividends, the amount of these dividends that is added to your income must be reported on Form 1040, lines 9a and 9b, or Form 1040NR, lines 10a and 10b. Irs forms 2012 taxes You do not include these dividends on Form 8814, line 12, or on line 21 of Form 1040 or Form 1040NR. Irs forms 2012 taxes   Enter the child's qualified dividends on Form 8814, line 2b. Irs forms 2012 taxes But do not include this amount on Form 1040, lines 9a and 9b, or Form 1040NR, lines 10a and 10b. Irs forms 2012 taxes Instead, include the amount from Form 8814, line 9, on Form 1040, lines 9a and 9b, or Form 1040NR, lines 10a and 10b. Irs forms 2012 taxes (The amount on Form 8814, line 9, may be less than the amount on Form 8814, line 2b, because lines 7 through 12 of the form divide the $2,000 base amount on Form 8814, line 5, between the child's qualified dividends, capital gain distributions, and other interest and dividend income, reducing each of those amounts. Irs forms 2012 taxes ) Capital gain distributions. Irs forms 2012 taxes   Enter on Form 8814, line 3, any capital gain distributions your child received. Irs forms 2012 taxes The amount of these distributions that is added to your income must be reported on Schedule D (Form 1040), line 13, or, if you are not required to file Schedule D, on Form 1040, line 13, or Form 1040NR, line 14. Irs forms 2012 taxes You do not include it on Form 8814, line 12, or on line 21 of Form 1040 or Form 1040NR. Irs forms 2012 taxes   Include the amount from Form 8814, line 10, on Schedule D, line 13; Form 1040, line 13; or Form 1040NR, line 14, whichever applies. Irs forms 2012 taxes (The amount on Form 8814, line 10, may be less than the amount on Form 8814, line 3, because lines 7 through 12 of the form divide the $2,000 base amount on Form 8814, line 5, between the child's qualified dividends, capital gain distributions, and other interest and dividend income, reducing each of those amounts. Irs forms 2012 taxes ) Collectibles (28% rate) gain. Irs forms 2012 taxes    If any of the child's capital gain distributions are reported on Form 1099-DIV as collectibles (28% rate) gain, you must determine how much to also include on line 4 of the 28% Rate Gain Worksheet, in the instructions for Schedule D, line 18. Irs forms 2012 taxes Multiply the child's capital gain distribution included on Schedule D, line 13, by a fraction. Irs forms 2012 taxes The numerator is the part of the child's total capital gain distribution that is collectibles (28% rate) gain. Irs forms 2012 taxes The denominator is the child's total capital gain distribution. Irs forms 2012 taxes Enter the result on line 4 of the 28% Rate Gain Worksheet. Irs forms 2012 taxes Unrecaptured section 1250 gain. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If any of the child's capital gain distributions are reported on Form 1099-DIV as unrecaptured section 1250 gain, you must determine how much to include on line 11 of the Unrecaptured Section 1250 Gain Worksheet in the instructions for Schedule D, line 19. Irs forms 2012 taxes Multiply the child's capital gain distribution included on Schedule D, line 13, by a fraction. Irs forms 2012 taxes The numerator is the part of the child's total capital gain distribution that is unrecaptured section 1250 gain. Irs forms 2012 taxes The denominator is the child's total capital gain distribution. Irs forms 2012 taxes Enter the result on the Unrecaptured Section 1250 Gain Worksheet, line 11. Irs forms 2012 taxes Section 1202 gain. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If any of the child's capital gain distributions are reported as section 1202 gain (gain on qualified small business stock) on Form 1099-DIV, part or all of that gain may be eligible for the section 1202 exclusion. Irs forms 2012 taxes (For information about the exclusion, see chapter 4 of Publication 550. Irs forms 2012 taxes ) To figure that part, multiply the child's capital gain distribution included on Schedule D, line 13, by a fraction. Irs forms 2012 taxes The numerator is the part of the child's total capital gain distribution that is section 1202 gain. Irs forms 2012 taxes The denominator is the child's total capital gain distribution. Irs forms 2012 taxes Your section 1202 exclusion is generally 50% of the result, but may be subject to a limit. Irs forms 2012 taxes In some cases, the exclusion is more than 50%. Irs forms 2012 taxes See the instructions for Schedule D for details and information on how to report the exclusion amount. Irs forms 2012 taxes Example. Irs forms 2012 taxes Fred is 6 years old. Irs forms 2012 taxes In 2013, he received dividend income of $2,100, which included $1,575 of ordinary dividends and a $525 capital gain distribution from a mutual fund. Irs forms 2012 taxes (None of the distributions were reported on Form 1099-DIV as unrecaptured section 1250 gain, section 1202 gain, or collectibles (28% rate) gain. Irs forms 2012 taxes ) All of the ordinary dividends are qualified dividends. Irs forms 2012 taxes He has no other income and is not subject to backup withholding. Irs forms 2012 taxes No estimated tax payments were made under his name and social security number. Irs forms 2012 taxes Fred's parents elect to include Fred's income on their tax return instead of filing a return for him. Irs forms 2012 taxes They figure the amount to report on Form 1040, lines 9a and 9b, the amount to report on their Schedule D, line 13, and the amount to report on Form 1040, line 21, as follows. Irs forms 2012 taxes They leave lines 1a and 1b of Form 8814 blank because Fred does not have any interest income. Irs forms 2012 taxes They enter his ordinary dividends of $1,575 on lines 2a and 2b because all of Fred's ordinary dividends are qualified dividends. Irs forms 2012 taxes They enter the amount of Fred's capital gain distributions, $525, on line 3. Irs forms 2012 taxes Next, they add the amounts on lines 1a, 2a, and 3 and enter the result, $2,100, on line 4. Irs forms 2012 taxes They subtract the base amount on line 5, $2,000, from the amount on line 4, $2,100, and enter the result, $100, on line 6. Irs forms 2012 taxes This is the total amount from Form 8814 to be reported on their return. Irs forms 2012 taxes Next, they figure how much of this amount is qualified dividends and how much is capital gain distributions. Irs forms 2012 taxes They divide the amount on line 2b, $1,575, by the amount on line 4, $2,100. Irs forms 2012 taxes They enter the result, . Irs forms 2012 taxes 75, on line 7. Irs forms 2012 taxes They divide the amount on line 3, $525, by the amount on line 4, $2,100. Irs forms 2012 taxes They enter the result, . Irs forms 2012 taxes 25, on line 8. Irs forms 2012 taxes They multiply the amount on line 6, $100, by the decimal on line 7, . Irs forms 2012 taxes 75, and enter the result, $75, on line 9. Irs forms 2012 taxes They multiply the amount on line 6, $100, by the decimal on line 8, . Irs forms 2012 taxes 25, and enter the result, $25, on line 10. Irs forms 2012 taxes They include the amount from line 9, $75, on lines 9a and 9b of their Form 1040 and enter “Form 8814 – $75” on the dotted lines next to lines 9a and 9b. Irs forms 2012 taxes They include the amount from line 10, $25, on line 13 of their Schedule D (Form 1040) and enter “Form 8814 – $25” on the dotted line next to Schedule D, line 13. Irs forms 2012 taxes They enter $100 ($75 + $25) on line 11 and -0- ($100 – $100) on line 12. Irs forms 2012 taxes Because the amount on line 12 is -0-, they do not include any amount from Form 8814 on their Form 1040, line 21. Irs forms 2012 taxes Figuring Additional Tax Use Form 8814, Part II, to figure the tax on the $2,000 of your child's interest and dividends that you do not include in your income. Irs forms 2012 taxes This tax is added to the tax figured on your income. Irs forms 2012 taxes This additional tax is the smaller of: 10% x (your child's gross income − $1,000), or $100. Irs forms 2012 taxes Include the amount from line 15 of all your Forms 8814 in the total on Form 1040, line 44, or Form 1040NR, line 42. Irs forms 2012 taxes Check box a on Form 1040, line 44, or Form 1040NR, line 42. Irs forms 2012 taxes Tax for Certain Children Who Have Unearned Income If a child's interest, dividends, and other unearned income total more than $2,000, part of that income may be taxed at the parent's tax rate instead of the child's tax rate. Irs forms 2012 taxes If the parent does not or cannot choose to include the child's income on the parent's return, use Form 8615 to figure the child's tax. Irs forms 2012 taxes Attach the completed form to the child's Form 1040, Form 1040A, or Form 1040NR. Irs forms 2012 taxes When Form 8615 must be filed. Irs forms 2012 taxes   Form 8615 must be filed for a child if all of the following statements are true. Irs forms 2012 taxes The child's unearned income was more than $2,000. Irs forms 2012 taxes The child is required to file a return for 2013. Irs forms 2012 taxes The child either: Was under age 18 at the end of the year, Was age 18 at the end of the year and did not have earned income that was more than half of his or her support, or Was over age 18 and under age 24 at the end of the year, was a full-time student, and did not have earned income that was more than half of his or her support. Irs forms 2012 taxes At least one of the child's parents was alive at the end of 2013. Irs forms 2012 taxes The child does not file a joint return for 2013.

Please click here for the text description of the image. Irs forms 2012 taxes Figure 2. Irs forms 2012 taxes Do You Have To Use Form 8615 To Figure Your Child's Tax? Providing Parental Information (Form 8615, Lines A–C) On Form 8615, lines A and B, enter the parent's name and social security number. Irs forms 2012 taxes (If the parents filed a joint return, enter the name and social security number listed first on the joint return. Irs forms 2012 taxes ) On line C, check the box for the parent's filing status. Irs forms 2012 taxes See Which Parent's Return To Use, earlier, for information on which parent's return information must be used on Form 8615. Irs forms 2012 taxes Parent with different tax year. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If the parent and the child do not have the same tax year, complete Form 8615 using the information on the parent's return for the tax year that ends in the child's tax year. Irs forms 2012 taxes Example. Irs forms 2012 taxes Kimberly must use her mother's tax and taxable income to complete her Form 8615 for calendar year 2013 (January 1 – December 31). Irs forms 2012 taxes Kimberly's mother files her tax return on a fiscal year basis (July 1 – June 30). Irs forms 2012 taxes Kimberly must use the information on her mother's return for the tax year ending June 30, 2013, to complete her 2013 Form 8615. Irs forms 2012 taxes Parent's return information not known timely. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If the information needed from the parent's return is not known by the time the child's return is due (usually April 15), you can file the return using estimates. Irs forms 2012 taxes   You can use any reasonable estimate. Irs forms 2012 taxes This includes using information from last year's return. Irs forms 2012 taxes If you use an estimated amount on Form 8615, enter “Estimated” on the line next to the amount. Irs forms 2012 taxes   When you get the correct information, file an amended return on Form 1040X, Amended U. Irs forms 2012 taxes S. Irs forms 2012 taxes Individual Income Tax Return. Irs forms 2012 taxes Extension of time to file. Irs forms 2012 taxes   Instead of using estimates, you can get an automatic 6-month extension of time to file if, by the date your return is due, you file Form 4868, Application for Automatic Extension of Time To File U. Irs forms 2012 taxes S. Irs forms 2012 taxes Individual Income Tax Return. Irs forms 2012 taxes See the instructions for Form 4868 for details. Irs forms 2012 taxes    An extension of time to file is not an extension of time to pay. Irs forms 2012 taxes You must make an accurate estimate of the tax for 2013. Irs forms 2012 taxes If you do not pay the full amount due by the regular due date, the child will owe interest and may also be charged penalties. Irs forms 2012 taxes See Form 4868 and its instructions. Irs forms 2012 taxes Parent's return information not available. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If a child cannot get the required information about his or her parent's tax return, the child (or the child's legal representative) can request the necessary information from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Irs forms 2012 taxes How to request. Irs forms 2012 taxes   After the end of the tax year, send a signed, written request for the information to the Internal Revenue Service Center where the parent's return will be filed. Irs forms 2012 taxes (The IRS cannot process a request received before the end of the tax year. Irs forms 2012 taxes )    You should also consider getting an extension of time to file the child's return, because there may be a delay in getting the requested information. Irs forms 2012 taxes   The request must contain all of the following. Irs forms 2012 taxes A statement that you are making the request to comply with section 1(g) of the Internal Revenue Code and that you have tried to get the information from the parent. Irs forms 2012 taxes Proof of the child's age (for example, a copy of the child's birth certificate). Irs forms 2012 taxes Evidence the child has more than $2,000 of unearned income (for example, a copy of the child's prior year tax return or copies of Forms 1099 for the current year). Irs forms 2012 taxes The name, address, social security number (if known), and filing status (if known) of the parent whose information is to be shown on Form 8615. Irs forms 2012 taxes    A child's legal representative making the request should include a copy of his or her Power of Attorney, such as Form 2848, or proof of legal guardianship. Irs forms 2012 taxes Step 1. Irs forms 2012 taxes Figuring the Child's Net Unearned Income (Form 8615, Part I) The first step in figuring a child's tax using Form 8615 is to figure the child's net unearned income. Irs forms 2012 taxes To do that, use Form 8615, Part I. Irs forms 2012 taxes Line 1 (Unearned Income) If the child had no earned income, enter on this line the adjusted gross income shown on the child's return. Irs forms 2012 taxes Adjusted gross income is shown on Form 1040, line 38; Form 1040A, line 22; or Form 1040NR, line 37. Irs forms 2012 taxes Form 1040EZ and Form 1040NR-EZ cannot be used if Form 8615 must be filed. Irs forms 2012 taxes If the child had earned income, figure the amount to enter on Form 8615, line 1, by using the worksheet in the instructions for the form. Irs forms 2012 taxes However, use the following worksheet if: the child has excluded any foreign earned income, deducted a loss from self-employment, or has a net operating loss from another year. Irs forms 2012 taxes Alternate Worksheet for Form 8615, Line 1 A. Irs forms 2012 taxes Enter the amount from the child's Form 1040, line 22, or Form 1040NR, line 23   B. Irs forms 2012 taxes Enter the total of any net loss  from self-employment, any net operating loss deduction, any foreign earned income exclusion, and any foreign housing exclusion from the child's Form 1040 or Form 1040NR. Irs forms 2012 taxes Enter this total as a positive number (greater than zero)   C. Irs forms 2012 taxes Add line A and line B and  enter the total   D. Irs forms 2012 taxes Enter the child's earned income plus any amount from the child's Form 1040, line 30, or the child's Form 1040NR, line 30     Generally, the child's earned income is the total of the amounts reported on Form 1040, lines 7, 12, and 18 (if line 12 or 18 is a loss, use zero) or Form 1040NR, lines 8, 13, and 19 (if line 13 or 19 is a loss, use zero)   E. Irs forms 2012 taxes Subtract line D from line C. Irs forms 2012 taxes Enter the result here and on Form 8615, line 1   Unearned income defined. Irs forms 2012 taxes   Unearned income is generally all income other than salaries, wages, and other amounts received as pay for work actually performed. Irs forms 2012 taxes It includes taxable interest, dividends, capital gains (including capital gain distributions), the taxable part of social security and pension payments, certain distributions from trusts, and unemployment compensation. Irs forms 2012 taxes Unearned income includes amounts produced by assets the child obtained with earned income (such as interest on a savings account into which the child deposited wages). Irs forms 2012 taxes Nontaxable income. Irs forms 2012 taxes   For this purpose, unearned income includes only amounts the child must include in gross income. Irs forms 2012 taxes Nontaxable unearned income, such as tax-exempt interest and the nontaxable part of social security and pension payments, is not included. Irs forms 2012 taxes Capital loss. Irs forms 2012 taxes   A child's capital losses are taken into account in figuring the child's unearned income. Irs forms 2012 taxes Capital losses are first applied against capital gains. Irs forms 2012 taxes If the capital losses are more than the capital gains, the difference (up to $3,000) is subtracted from the child's interest, dividends, and other unearned income. Irs forms 2012 taxes Any difference over $3,000 is carried to the next year. Irs forms 2012 taxes Income from property received as a gift. Irs forms 2012 taxes   A child's unearned income includes all income produced by property belonging to the child. Irs forms 2012 taxes This is true even if the property was transferred to the child, regardless of when the property was transferred or purchased or who transferred it. Irs forms 2012 taxes   A child's unearned income includes income produced by property given as a gift to the child. Irs forms 2012 taxes This includes gifts to the child from grandparents or any other person and gifts made under the Uniform Gift to Minors Act. Irs forms 2012 taxes Example. Irs forms 2012 taxes Amanda Black, age 13, received the following income. Irs forms 2012 taxes Dividends—$800 Wages—$2,100 Taxable interest—$1,200 Tax-exempt interest—$100 Capital gains—$300 Capital losses—($200) The dividends were qualified dividends on stock given to her by her grandparents. Irs forms 2012 taxes Amanda's unearned income is $2,100. Irs forms 2012 taxes This is the total of the dividends ($800), taxable interest ($1,200), and capital gains reduced by capital losses ($300 − $200 = $100). Irs forms 2012 taxes Her wages are earned (not unearned) income because they are received for work actually performed. Irs forms 2012 taxes Her tax-exempt interest is not included because it is nontaxable. Irs forms 2012 taxes Trust income. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If a child is the beneficiary of a trust, distributions of taxable interest, dividends, capital gains, and other unearned income from the trust are unearned income to the child. Irs forms 2012 taxes   However, taxable distributions from a qualified disability trust are considered earned income for the purposes of completing Form 8615. Irs forms 2012 taxes See the Form 8615 instructions for details. Irs forms 2012 taxes Adjustment to income. Irs forms 2012 taxes   In figuring the amount to enter on line 1, the child's unearned income is reduced by any penalty on the early withdrawal of savings. Irs forms 2012 taxes Line 2 (Deductions) If the child does not itemize deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040 or Form 1040NR), enter $2,000 on line 2. Irs forms 2012 taxes If the child itemizes deductions, enter on line 2 the larger of: $1,000 plus the portion of the child's itemized deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040), line 29 (or Schedule A (Form 1040NR), line 15), that are directly connected with the production of the unearned income entered on line 1, or $2,000. Irs forms 2012 taxes Directly connected. Irs forms 2012 taxes   Itemized deductions are directly connected with the production of unearned income if they are for expenses paid to produce or collect taxable income or to manage, conserve, or maintain property held for producing income. Irs forms 2012 taxes These expenses include custodian fees and service charges, service fees to collect taxable interest and dividends, and certain investment counsel fees. Irs forms 2012 taxes    These expenses are added to certain other miscellaneous itemized deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040). Irs forms 2012 taxes Only the amount greater than 2% of the child's adjusted gross income can be deducted. Irs forms 2012 taxes See Publication 529, Miscellaneous Deductions, for more information. Irs forms 2012 taxes Example 1. Irs forms 2012 taxes Roger, age 12, has unearned income of $8,000, no other income, no adjustments to income, and itemized deductions of $300 (net of the 2%-of-adjusted-gross-income limit) that are directly connected with his unearned income. Irs forms 2012 taxes His adjusted gross income is $8,000, which is entered on Form 1040, line 38, and on Form 8615, line 1. Irs forms 2012 taxes Roger enters $2,000 on line 2 because that is more than the total of $1,000 plus his directly-connected itemized deductions of $300. Irs forms 2012 taxes Example 2. Irs forms 2012 taxes Eleanor, age 8, has unearned income of $16,000 and an early withdrawal penalty of $100. Irs forms 2012 taxes She has no other income. Irs forms 2012 taxes She has itemized deductions of $1,050 (net of the 2%-of-adjusted-gross-income limit) that are directly connected with the production of her unearned income. Irs forms 2012 taxes Her adjusted gross income, entered on line 1, is $15,900 ($16,000 − $100). Irs forms 2012 taxes The amount on line 2 is $2,050. Irs forms 2012 taxes This is the larger of: $1,000 plus the $1,050 of directly connected itemized deductions, or $2,000. Irs forms 2012 taxes Line 3 Subtract line 2 from line 1 and enter the result on this line. Irs forms 2012 taxes If zero or less, do not complete the rest of the form. Irs forms 2012 taxes However, you must still attach Form 8615 to the child's tax return. Irs forms 2012 taxes Figure the tax on the child's taxable income in the normal manner. Irs forms 2012 taxes Line 4 (Child's Taxable Income) Enter on line 4 the child's taxable income from Form 1040, line 43; Form 1040A, line 27; or Form 1040NR, line 41. Irs forms 2012 taxes Child files Form 2555 or 2555-EZ. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If the child files Form 2555 or 2555-EZ to claim the foreign earned income exclusion, housing exclusion, or housing deduction, the Foreign Earned Income Tax Worksheet (in the Form 1040 instructions) is used to figure the child's tax. Irs forms 2012 taxes Enter the amount from line 3 of the Foreign Earned Income Tax Worksheet as the child's taxable income on Form 8615, line 4. Irs forms 2012 taxes Line 5 (Net Unearned Income) A child's net unearned income cannot be more than his or her taxable income. Irs forms 2012 taxes Enter on Form 8615, line 5, the smaller of line 3 or line 4. Irs forms 2012 taxes This is the child's net unearned income. Irs forms 2012 taxes If zero or less, do not complete the rest of the form. Irs forms 2012 taxes However, you must still attach Form 8615 to the child's tax return. Irs forms 2012 taxes Figure the tax on the child's taxable income in the normal manner. Irs forms 2012 taxes Step 2. Irs forms 2012 taxes Figuring a Tentative Tax at the Parent's Tax Rate (Form 8615, Part II) The next step in completing Form 8615 is to figure a tentative tax on the child's net unearned income at the parent's tax rate. Irs forms 2012 taxes The tentative tax at the parent's tax rate is the difference between the tax on the parent's taxable income figured with the child's net unearned income (plus the net unearned income of any other child whose Form 8615 includes the tax return information of that parent) and the tax figured without it. Irs forms 2012 taxes When figuring the tentative tax at the parent's tax rate on Form 8615, do not refigure any of the exclusions, deductions, or credits on the parent's return because of the child's net unearned income. Irs forms 2012 taxes For example, do not refigure the medical expense deduction. Irs forms 2012 taxes Figure the tentative tax on Form 8615, lines 6 through 13. Irs forms 2012 taxes Line 6 (Parent's Taxable Income) Enter on line 6 the amount from the parent's Form 1040, line 43; Form 1040A, line 27; Form 1040EZ, line 6; Form 1040NR, line 41; or Form 1040NR-EZ, line 14. Irs forms 2012 taxes If the parent's taxable income is zero or less, enter zero on line 6. Irs forms 2012 taxes Parent files Form 2555 or 2555-EZ. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If the parent files Form 2555 or 2555-EZ to claim the foreign earned income exclusion, housing exclusion, or housing deduction, the Foreign Earned Income Tax Worksheet in the Form 1040 instructions is used to figure the parent's tax. Irs forms 2012 taxes Enter the amount from line 3 of the Foreign Earned Income Tax Worksheet as the parent's taxable income, on line 6 of Form 8615. Irs forms 2012 taxes Line 7 (Net Unearned Income of Other Children) If the tax return information of the parent is also used on any other child's Form 8615, enter on line 7 the total of the amounts from line 5 of all the other children's Forms 8615. Irs forms 2012 taxes Do not include the amount from line 5 of the Form 8615 being completed. Irs forms 2012 taxes (The term “other child” means any other child whose Form 8615 uses the tax information of the parent identified on Lines A and B of Form 8615. Irs forms 2012 taxes ) Example. Irs forms 2012 taxes Paul and Jane Persimmon have three children, Sharon, Jerry, and Mike, who must attach Form 8615 to their tax returns. Irs forms 2012 taxes The children's net unearned income amounts on line 5 of their Forms 8615 are: Sharon—$800 Jerry—$600 Mike—$1,000 Line 7 of Sharon's Form 8615 will show $1,600, the total of the amounts on line 5 of Jerry's and Mike's Forms 8615. Irs forms 2012 taxes Line 7 of Jerry's Form 8615 will show $1,800 ($800 + $1,000). Irs forms 2012 taxes Line 7 of Mike's Form 8615 will show $1,400 ($800 + $600). Irs forms 2012 taxes Other children's information not available. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If the net unearned income of the other children is not available when the return is due, either file the return using estimates or get an extension of time to file. Irs forms 2012 taxes Estimates and extensions are discussed earlier under Providing Parental Information (Form 8615, Lines A–C) . Irs forms 2012 taxes Line 8 (Parent's Taxable Income Plus Children's Net Unearned Income) Enter on this line the total of lines 5, 6, and 7. Irs forms 2012 taxes You must determine the amount of net capital gain and qualified dividends included on this line before completing Form 8615, line 9. Irs forms 2012 taxes Net capital gain. Irs forms 2012 taxes   Net capital gain is the smaller of the gain, if any, on Schedule D (Form 1040), line 15, or the gain, if any, on Schedule D, line 16. Irs forms 2012 taxes If Schedule D is not required, it is the amount on Form 1040, line 13; Form 1040A, line 10; or Form 1040NR, line 14. Irs forms 2012 taxes Qualified dividends. Irs forms 2012 taxes   Qualified dividends are those dividends reported on line 9b of Form 1040 or Form 1040A, or line 10b of Form 1040NR. Irs forms 2012 taxes Net capital gain and qualified dividends on line 8. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If neither the child, nor the parent, nor any other child has net capital gain, the net capital gain on line 8 is zero. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If neither the child, nor the parent, nor any other child has qualified dividends, the amount of qualified dividends on line 8 is zero. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If the child, parent, or any other child has net capital gain, figure the amount of net capital gain included on line 8 by adding together the net capital gain amounts included on lines 5, 6, and 7 of Form 8615. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If the child, parent, or any other child has qualified dividends, figure the amount of qualified dividends included on line 8 by adding together the qualified dividend amounts included on lines 5, 6, and 7. Irs forms 2012 taxes   Use the instructions for Form 8615, line 8, including the appropriate Line 5 Worksheet, to find these amounts. Irs forms 2012 taxes See the instructions for Form 8615 for more details. Irs forms 2012 taxes Note. Irs forms 2012 taxes The amount of any net capital gain or qualified dividends is not separately reported on line 8. Irs forms 2012 taxes It is  needed, however, when figuring the tax on line 9. Irs forms 2012 taxes Line 9 (Tax on Parent's Taxable Income Plus Children's Net Unearned Income) Figure the tax on the amount on line 8 using the Tax Table, the Tax Computation Worksheet, the Qualified Dividends and Capital Gain Tax Worksheet (in the Form 1040, 1040A, or 1040NR instructions), the Schedule D Tax Worksheet (in the Schedule D instructions), or Schedule J (Form 1040), as follows. Irs forms 2012 taxes If line 8 does not include any net capital gain or qualified dividends, use the Tax Table or Tax Computation Worksheet to figure this tax. Irs forms 2012 taxes But if Schedule J, Income Averaging for Farmers and Fishermen, is used to figure the tax on the parent's return, use it to figure this tax. Irs forms 2012 taxes If line 8 includes any net capital gain or qualified dividends, use the Qualified Dividends and Capital Gain Tax Worksheet to figure this tax. Irs forms 2012 taxes For details, see the instructions for Form 8615, line 9. Irs forms 2012 taxes However, if the child, parent, or any other child has 28% rate gain or unrecaptured section 1250 gain, use the Schedule D Tax Worksheet. Irs forms 2012 taxes But if Schedule J is used to figure the tax on the parent's return, use it to figure this tax. Irs forms 2012 taxes Child files Form 2555 or 2555-EZ. Irs forms 2012 taxes   If line 8 includes any net capital gain or qualified dividends and the child, or any other child filing Form 8615, also files Form 2555 or 2555-EZ, use Using the Schedule D Tax Worksheet for line 9 tax, next, to figure the line 9 tax. Irs forms 2012 taxes Using the Schedule D Tax Worksheet for line 9 tax. Irs forms 2012 taxes    Use the Schedule D Tax Worksheet (in the Schedule D instructions) to figure the line 9 tax on Form 8615 if the child, parent, or any other child has unrecaptured section 1250 gain or 28% rate gain. Irs forms 2012 taxes If you must use the Schedule D Tax Worksheet, first complete any Schedule D and any actual Schedule D Tax Worksheet required for the child, parent, or any other child. Irs forms 2012 taxes Then figure the line 9 tax using another Schedule D Tax Worksheet. Irs forms 2012 taxes (Do not attach this Schedule D Tax Worksheet to the child's return. Irs forms 2012 taxes )   Complete this Schedule D Tax Worksheet as follows. Irs forms 2012 taxes On line 1, enter the amount from Form 8615, line 8. Irs forms 2012 taxes On line 2, enter the qualified dividends included on Form 8615, line 8. Irs forms 2012 taxes (See the earlier discussion for line 8. Irs forms 2012 taxes ) On line 3, enter the total of the amounts, if any, on line 4g of all Forms 4952 filed by the child, parent, or any other child. Irs forms 2012 taxes On line 4, enter the total of the amounts, if any, on line 4e of all Forms 4952 filed by the child, parent, or any other child. Irs forms 2012 taxes If applicable, include instead the smaller amount entered on the dotted line next to line 4e. Irs forms 2012 taxes On lines 5 and 6, follow the worksheet instructions. Irs forms 2012 taxes On line 7, enter the net capital gain included on Form 8615, line 8. Irs forms 2012 taxes (See the earlier discussion for line 8. Irs forms 2012 taxes ) On lines 8 through 10, follow the worksheet instructions. Irs forms 2012 taxes On line 11, enter zero if neither the child, nor the parent, nor any other child has unrecaptured section 1250 gain (Schedule D, line 19) or 28% rate gain (Schedule D, line 18). Irs forms 2012 taxes Otherwise, enter the amount of unrecaptured section 1250 gain and 28% rate gain included in the net capital gain on line 8 of Form 8615. Irs forms 2012 taxes Figure these amounts as explained later under Figuring unrecaptured section 1250 gain (line 11) and Figuring 28% rate gain (line 11). Irs forms 2012 taxes If the Foreign Earned Income Tax Worksheet was used to figure the parent's tax or the tax of any child, go to step 10 below. Irs forms 2012 taxes Otherwise, skip steps 10, 11, and 12 below, and go to step 13. Irs forms 2012 taxes Determine whether there is a line 8 capital gain excess as follows. Irs forms 2012 taxes Add the amounts on line 2 of all Foreign Earned Income Tax Worksheets completed by the parent or any child for whom Form 8615 is filed.
