Schedule c ez form End of the Community Preparing a Federal Income Tax ReturnJoint Return Versus Separate Returns Separate Return Preparation How To Get Tax HelpLow Income Taxpayer Clinics Domicile Whether you have community property and community income depends on the state where you are domiciled. Schedule c ez form If you and your spouse (or your registered domestic partner) have different domiciles, check the laws of each to see whether you have community property or community income. Schedule c ez form You have only one domicile even if you have more than one home. Schedule c ez form Your domicile is a permanent legal home that you intend to use for an indefinite or unlimited period, and to which, when absent, you intend to return. Schedule c ez form The question of your domicile is mainly a matter of your intention as indicated by your actions. Schedule c ez form You must be able to show that you intend a given place or state to be your permanent home. Schedule c ez form If you move into or out of a community property state during the year, you may or may not have community income. Schedule c ez form Factors considered in determining domicile include: Where you pay state income tax, Where you vote, Location of property you own, Your citizenship, Length of residence, and Business and social ties to the community. Schedule c ez form Amount of time spent. Schedule c ez form    The amount of time spent in one place does not always explain the difference between home and domicile. Schedule c ez form A temporary home or residence may continue for months or years while a domicile may be established the first moment you occupy the property. Schedule c ez form Your intent is the determining factor in proving where you have your domicile. Schedule c ez form    Note. Schedule c ez form When this publication refers to where you live, it means your domicile. Schedule c ez form Community or Separate Property and Income If you file a federal tax return separately from your spouse, you must report half of all community income and all of your separate income. Schedule c ez form Likewise, a registered domestic partner must report half of all community income and all of his or her separate income on his or her federal tax return. Schedule c ez form You each must attach your Form 8958 to your Form 1040 showing how you figured the amount you are reporting on your return. Schedule c ez form Generally, the laws of the state in which you are domiciled govern whether you have community property and community income or separate property and separate income for federal tax purposes. Schedule c ez form The following is a summary of the general rules. Schedule c ez form These rules are also shown in Table 1. Schedule c ez form Community property. Schedule c ez form    Generally, community property is property: That you, your spouse (or your registered domestic partner), or both acquire during your marriage (or registered domestic partnership) while you and your spouse (or your registered domestic partner) are domiciled in a community property state. Schedule c ez form That you and your spouse (or your registered domestic partner) agreed to convert from separate to community property. Schedule c ez form That cannot be identified as separate property. Schedule c ez form Community income. Schedule c ez form    Generally, community income is income from: Community property. Schedule c ez form Salaries, wages, and other pay received for the services performed by you, your spouse (or your registered domestic partner), or both during your marriage (or registered domestic partnership) while domiciled in a community property state. Schedule c ez form Real estate that is treated as community property under the laws of the state where the property is located. Schedule c ez form Note Separate property. Schedule c ez form    Generally, separate property is: Property that you or your spouse (or your registered domestic partner) owned separately before your marriage (or registered domestic partnership). Schedule c ez form Money earned while domiciled in a noncommunity property state. Schedule c ez form Property that you or your spouse (or your registered domestic partner) received separately as a gift or inheritance during your marriage (or registered domestic partnership). Schedule c ez form Property that you or your spouse (or your registered domestic partner) bought with separate funds, or acquired in exchange for separate property, during your marriage (or registered domestic partnership). Schedule c ez form Property that you and your spouse (or your registered domestic partner) converted from community property to separate property through an agreement valid under state law. Schedule c ez form The part of property bought with separate funds, if part was bought with community funds and part with separate funds. Schedule c ez form Separate income. Schedule c ez form    Generally, income from separate property is the separate income of the spouse (or the registered domestic partner) who owns the property. Schedule c ez form    In Idaho, Louisiana, Texas, and Wisconsin, income from most separate property is community income. Schedule c ez form Table 1. Schedule c ez form General Rules — Property and Income: Community or Separate? Community property is property: That you, your spouse (or your registered domestic partner), or both acquire during your marriage (or registered domestic partnership) while you and your spouse (or your registered domestic partner) are domiciled in a community property state. Schedule c ez form (Includes the part of property bought with community property funds if part was bought with community funds and part with separate funds. Schedule c ez form ) That you and your spouse (or your registered domestic partner) agreed to convert from separate to community property. Schedule c ez form That cannot be identified as separate property. Schedule c ez form Separate property is: Property that you or your spouse (or your registered domestic partner) owned separately before your marriage (or registered domestic partnership). Schedule c ez form Money earned while domiciled in a noncommunity property state. Schedule c ez form Property either of you received as a gift or inherited separately during your marriage (or registered domestic partnership). Schedule c ez form Property bought with separate funds, or exchanged for separate property, during your marriage (or registered domestic partnership). Schedule c ez form Property that you and your spouse (or your registered domestic partner) agreed to convert from community to separate property through an agreement valid under state law. Schedule c ez form The part of property bought with separate funds, if part was bought with community funds and part with separate funds. Schedule c ez form Community income 1,2,3 is income from: Community property. Schedule c ez form Salaries, wages, or pay for services of you, your spouse (or your registered domestic partner), or both during your marriage (or registered domestic partnership) while domiciled in a community property state. Schedule c ez form Real estate that is treated as community property under the laws of the state where the property is located. Schedule c ez form Separate income 1,2 is income from: Separate property which belongs to the spouse (or registered domestic partner) who owns the property. Schedule c ez form 1In Idaho, Louisiana, Texas, and Wisconsin, income from most separate property is community income. Schedule c ez form 2Check your state law if you are separated but do not meet the conditions discussed in Spouses living apart all year , later. Schedule c ez form In some states, the income you earn after you are separated and before a divorce decree is issued continues to be community income. Schedule c ez form In other states, it is separate income. Schedule c ez form 3Under special rules, income that can otherwise be characterized as community income may not be treated as community income for federal income tax purposes in certain situations. Schedule c ez form See Community Property Laws Disregarded , later. Schedule c ez form Identifying Income, Deductions, and Credits If you file separate returns, you and your spouse (or your registered domestic partner) each must attach your Form 8958 to your Form 1040 to identify your community and separate income, deductions, credits, and other return amounts according to the laws of your state. Schedule c ez form Under special rules, income that can otherwise be characterized as community income may not be treated as community income for federal income tax purposes in certain situations. Schedule c ez form See Community Property Laws Disregarded, later. Schedule c ez form Check your state law if you are separated but do not meet the conditions discussed in Spouses living apart all year, later. Schedule c ez form In some states, the income you earn after you are separated and before a divorce decree is issued continues to be community income. Schedule c ez form In other states, it is separate income. Schedule c ez form Income The following is a discussion of the general effect of community property laws on the federal income tax treatment of certain items of income. Schedule c ez form Wages, earnings, and profits. Schedule c ez form    A spouse's (or your registered domestic partner's) wages, earnings, and net profits from a sole proprietorship are community income and must be evenly split. Schedule c ez form Dividends, interest, and rents. Schedule c ez form    Dividends, interest, and rents from community property are community income and must be evenly split. Schedule c ez form Dividends, interest, and rents from separate property are characterized in accordance with the discussion under Income from separate property , later. Schedule c ez form Example. Schedule c ez form If you and your spouse (or your registered domestic partner) buy a bond that is considered community property under your state laws, half the bond interest belongs to you and half belongs to your spouse. Schedule c ez form You each must show the bond interest and the split of that interest on your Form 8958, and report half the interest on your Form 1040. Schedule c ez form Attach your Form 8958 to your Form 1040. Schedule c ez form Alimony received. Schedule c ez form    Alimony or separate maintenance payments made prior to divorce are taxable to the payee spouse only to the extent they exceed 50% (his or her share) of the reportable community income. Schedule c ez form This is so because the payee spouse is already required to report half of the community income. Schedule c ez form See also Alimony paid , later. Schedule c ez form Gains and losses. Schedule c ez form    Gains and losses are classified as separate or community depending on how the property is held. Schedule c ez form For example, a loss on separate property, such as stock held separately, is a separate loss. Schedule c ez form On the other hand, a loss on community property, such as a casualty loss to your home held as community property, is a community loss. Schedule c ez form See Publication 544, Sales and Other Dispositions of Assets, for information on gains and losses. Schedule c ez form See Publication 547, Casualties, Disasters, and Thefts, for information on losses due to a casualty or theft. Schedule c ez form Withdrawals from individual retirement arrangements (IRAs) and Coverdell Education Savings Accounts (ESAs). Schedule c ez form    There are several kinds of individual retirement arrangements (IRAs). Schedule c ez form They are traditional IRAs (including SEP-IRAs), SIMPLE IRAs, and Roth IRAs. Schedule c ez form IRAs and ESAs by law are deemed to be separate property. Schedule c ez form Therefore, taxable IRA and ESA distributions are separate property, even if the funds in the account would otherwise be community property. Schedule c ez form These distributions are wholly taxable to the spouse (or registered domestic partner) whose name is on the account. Schedule c ez form That spouse (or registered domestic partner) is also liable for any penalties and additional taxes on the distributions. Schedule c ez form Pensions. Schedule c ez form    Generally, distributions from pensions will be characterized as community or separate income depending on the respective periods of participation in the pension while married (or during the registered domestic partnership) and domiciled in a community property state or in a noncommunity property state during the total period of participation in the pension. Schedule c ez form See the example under Civil service retirement , later. Schedule c ez form These rules may vary between states. Schedule c ez form Check your state law. Schedule c ez form Lump-sum distributions. Schedule c ez form    If you were born before January 2, 1936, and receive a lump-sum distribution from a qualified retirement plan, you may be able to choose an optional method of figuring the tax on the distribution. Schedule c ez form For the 10-year tax option, you must disregard community property laws. Schedule c ez form For more information, see Publication 575, Pension and Annuity Income, and Form 4972, Tax on Lump-Sum Distributions. Schedule c ez form Civil service retirement. Schedule c ez form    For income tax purposes, community property laws apply to annuities payable under the Civil Service Retirement Act (CSRS) or Federal Employee Retirement System (FERS). Schedule c ez form   Whether a civil service annuity is separate or community income depends on your marital status (or your status as a registered domestic partner) and domicile of the employee when the services were performed for which the annuity is paid. Schedule c ez form Even if you now live in a noncommunity property state and you receive a civil service annuity, it may be community income if it is based on services you performed while married (or during the registered domestic partnership) and domiciled in a community property state. Schedule c ez form   If a civil service annuity is a mixture of community income and separate income, it must be divided between the two kinds of income. Schedule c ez form The division is based on the employee's domicile and marital status (or registered domestic partnership) in community and noncommunity property states during his or her periods of service. Schedule c ez form Example. Schedule c ez form Henry Wright retired this year after 30 years of civil service. Schedule c ez form He and his wife were domiciled in a community property state during the past 15 years. Schedule c ez form Since half the service was performed while the Wrights were married and domiciled in a community property state, half the civil service retirement pay is considered to be community income. Schedule c ez form If Mr. Schedule c ez form Wright receives $1,000 a month in retirement pay, $500 is considered community income—half ($250) is his income and half ($250) is his wife's. Schedule c ez form Military retirement pay. Schedule c ez form    State community property laws apply to military retirement pay. Schedule c ez form Generally, the pay is either separate or community income based on the marital status and domicile of the couple while the member of the Armed Forces was in active military service. Schedule c ez form For example, military retirement pay for services performed during marriage and domicile in a community property state is community income. Schedule c ez form   Active military pay earned while married and domiciled in a community property state is also community income. Schedule c ez form This income is considered to be received half by the member of the Armed Forces and half by the spouse. Schedule c ez form Partnership income. Schedule c ez form    If an interest is held in a partnership, and income from the partnership is attributable to the efforts of either spouse (or registered domestic partner), the partnership income is community property. Schedule c ez form If it is merely a passive investment in a separate property partnership, the partnership income will be characterized in accordance with the discussion under Income from separate property , later. Schedule c ez form Tax-exempt income. Schedule c ez form    For spouses, community income exempt from federal tax generally keeps its exempt status for both spouses. Schedule c ez form For example, under certain circumstances, income earned outside the United States is tax exempt. Schedule c ez form If you earned income and met the conditions that made it exempt, the income is also exempt for your spouse even though he or she may not have met the conditions. Schedule c ez form Registered domestic partners should consult the particular exclusion provision to see if the exempt status applies to both. Schedule c ez form Income from separate property. Schedule c ez form    In some states, income from separate property is separate income. Schedule c ez form These states include Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, and Washington. Schedule c ez form Other states characterize income from separate property as community income. Schedule c ez form These states include Idaho, Louisiana, Texas, and Wisconsin. Schedule c ez form Exemptions When you file separate returns, you must claim your own exemption amount for that year. Schedule c ez form (See your tax return instructions. Schedule c ez form ) You cannot divide the amount allowed as an exemption for a dependent between you and your spouse (or your registered domestic partner). Schedule c ez form When community funds provide support for more than one person, each of whom otherwise qualifies as a dependent, you and your spouse (or your registered domestic partner) may divide the number of dependency exemptions as explained in the following example. Schedule c ez form Example. Schedule c ez form Ron and Diane White have three dependent children and live in Nevada. Schedule c ez form If Ron and Diane file separately, only Ron can claim his own exemption, and only Diane can claim her own exemption. Schedule c ez form Ron and Diane can agree that one of them will claim the exemption for one, two, or all of their children and the other will claim any remaining exemptions. Schedule c ez form They cannot each claim half of the total exemption amount for their three children. Schedule c ez form Deductions If you file separate returns, your deductions generally depend on whether the expenses involve community or separate income. Schedule c ez form Business and investment expenses. Schedule c ez form    If you file separate returns, expenses incurred to earn or produce community business or investment income are generally divided equally between you and your spouse (or your registered domestic partner). Schedule c ez form Each of you is entitled to deduct one-half of the expenses on your separate returns. Schedule c ez form Expenses incurred by a spouse (or registered domestic partner) to produce separate business or investment income is deductible by the spouse (or the registered domestic partner) who earns the corresponding separate business or investment income. Schedule c ez form    Other limits may also apply to business and investment expenses. Schedule c ez form For more information, see Publication 535, Business Expenses, and Publication 550, Investment Income and Expenses. Schedule c ez form Alimony paid. Schedule c ez form    Payments that may otherwise qualify as alimony are not deductible by the payer if they are the recipient spouse's part of community income. Schedule c ez form They are deductible as alimony only to the extent they are more than that spouse's part of community income. Schedule c ez form Example. Schedule c ez form You live in a community property state. Schedule c ez form You are separated but the special rules explained later under Spouses living apart all year do not apply. Schedule c ez form Under a written agreement, you pay your spouse $12,000 of your $20,000 total yearly community income. Schedule c ez form Your spouse receives no other community income. Schedule c ez form Under your state law, earnings of a spouse living separately and apart from the other spouse continue as community property. Schedule c ez form On your separate returns, each of you must report $10,000 of the total community income. Schedule c ez form In addition, your spouse must report $2,000 as alimony received. Schedule c ez form You can deduct $2,000 as alimony paid. Schedule c ez form IRA deduction. Schedule c ez form    Deductions for IRA contributions cannot be split between spouses (or registered domestic partners). Schedule c ez form The deduction for each spouse (or each registered domestic partner) is figured separately and without regard to community property laws. Schedule c ez form Personal expenses. Schedule c ez form   Expenses that are paid out of separate funds, such as medical expenses, are deductible by the spouse who pays them. Schedule c ez form If these expenses are paid from community funds, divide the deduction equally between you and your spouse. Schedule c ez form Credits, Taxes, and Payments The following is a discussion of the general effect of community property laws on the treatment of certain credits, taxes, and payments on your separate return. Schedule c ez form Child tax credit. Schedule c ez form    You may be entitled to a child tax credit for each of your qualifying children. Schedule c ez form You must provide the name and identification number (usually the social security number) of each qualifying child on your return. Schedule c ez form See your tax return instructions for the maximum amount of the credit you can claim for each qualifying child. Schedule c ez form Limit on credit. Schedule c ez form    The credit is limited if your modified adjusted gross income (modified AGI) is above a certain amount. Schedule c ez form The amount at which the limitation (phaseout) begins depends on your filing status. Schedule c ez form Generally, your credit is limited to your tax liability unless you have three or more qualifying children. Schedule c ez form See your tax return instructions for more information. Schedule c ez form Self-employment tax. Schedule c ez form    For the effect of community property laws on the income tax treatment of income from a sole proprietorship and partnerships, see Wages, earnings, and profits and Partnership income , earlier. Schedule c ez form The following rules only apply to persons married for federal tax purposes. Schedule c ez form Registered domestic partners report community income for self-employment tax purposes the same way they do for income tax purposes. Schedule c ez form Sole proprietorship. Schedule c ez form    With regard to net income from a trade or business (other than a partnership) that is community income, self-employment tax is imposed on the spouse carrying on the trade or business. Schedule c ez form Partnerships. Schedule c ez form    All of the distributive share of a married partner's income or loss from a partnership trade or business is attributable to the partner for computing any self-employment tax, even if a portion of the partner's distributive share of income or loss is community income or loss that is otherwise attributable to the partner's spouse for income tax purposes. Schedule c ez form If both spouses are partners, any self-employment tax is allocated based on their distributive shares. Schedule c ez form Federal income tax withheld. Schedule c ez form    Report the credit for federal income tax withheld on community wages in the same manner as your wages. Schedule c ez form If you and your spouse file separate returns on which each of you reports half the community wages, each of you is entitled to credit for half the income tax withheld on those wages. Schedule c ez form Likewise, each registered domestic partner is entitled to credit for half the income tax withheld on those wages. Schedule c ez form Estimated tax payments. Schedule c ez form    In determining whether you must pay estimated tax, apply the estimated tax rules to your estimated income. Schedule c ez form These rules are explained in Publication 505. Schedule c ez form   If you think you may owe estimated tax and want to pay the tax separately (registered domestic partners must pay the tax separately), determine whether you must pay it by taking into account: Half the community income and deductions, All of your separate income and deductions, and Your own exemption and any exemptions for dependents that you may claim. Schedule c ez form   Whether you and your spouse pay estimated tax jointly or separately will not affect your choice of filing joint or separate income tax returns. Schedule c ez form   If you and your spouse paid estimated tax jointly but file separate income tax returns, either of you can claim all of the estimated tax paid, or you may divide it between you in any way that you agree upon. Schedule c ez form   If you cannot agree on how to divide it, the estimated tax you can claim equals the total estimated tax paid times the tax shown on your separate return, divided by the total of the tax shown on your return and your spouse's return. Schedule c ez form   If you paid your estimated taxes separately, you get credit for only the estimated taxes you paid. Schedule c ez form Earned income credit. Schedule c ez form    You may be entitled to an earned income credit (EIC). Schedule c ez form You cannot claim this credit if your filing status is married filing separately. Schedule c ez form   If you are married, but qualify to file as head of household under rules for married taxpayers living apart (see Publication 501, Exemptions, Standard Deduction, and Filing Information), and live in a state that has community property laws, your earned income for the EIC does not include any amount earned by your spouse that is treated as belonging to you under community property laws. Schedule c ez form That amount is not earned income for the EIC, even though you must include it in your gross income on your income tax return. Schedule c ez form Your earned income includes the entire amount you earned, even if part of it is treated as belonging to your spouse under your state's community property laws. Schedule c ez form The same rule applies to registered domestic partners. Schedule c ez form    This rule does not apply when determining your adjusted gross income (AGI) for the EIC. Schedule c ez form Your AGI includes that part of both your and your spouse's (or your registered domestic partner's) wages that you are required to include in gross income shown on your tax return. Schedule c ez form   For more information about the EIC, see Publication 596, Earned Income Credit (EIC). Schedule c ez form Overpayments. Schedule c ez form    The amount of an overpayment on a joint return is allocated under the community property laws of the state in which you are domiciled. Schedule c ez form If, under the laws of your state, community property is subject to premarital or other separate debts of either spouse, the full joint overpayment may be used to offset the obligation. Schedule c ez form If, under the laws of your state, community property is not subject to premarital or other separate debts of either spouse, only the portion of the joint overpayment allocated to the spouse liable for the obligation can be used to offset that liability. Schedule c ez form The portion allocated to the other spouse can be refunded. Schedule c ez form Community Property Laws Disregarded The following discussions are situations where special rules apply to community property and community income for spouses. Schedule c ez form These rules do not apply to registered domestic partners. Schedule c ez form Certain community income not treated as community income by one spouse. Schedule c ez form    Community property laws may not apply to an item of community income that you received but did not treat as community income. Schedule c ez form You are responsible for reporting all of that income item if: You treat the item as if only you are entitled to the income, and You do not notify your spouse of the nature and amount of the income by the due date for filing the return (including extensions). Schedule c ez form Relief from liability arising from community property law. Schedule c ez form    You are not responsible for the tax relating to an item of community income if all the following conditions are met. Schedule c ez form You did not file a joint return for the tax year. Schedule c ez form You did not include an item of community income in gross income. Schedule c ez form The item of community income you did not include is one of the following: Wages, salaries, and other compensation your spouse (or former spouse) received for services he or she performed as an employee. Schedule c ez form Income your spouse (or former spouse) derived from a trade or business he or she operated as a sole proprietor. Schedule c ez form Your spouse's (or former spouse's) distributive share of partnership income. Schedule c ez form Income from your spouse's (or former spouse's) separate property (other than income described in (a), (b), or (c)). Schedule c ez form Use the appropriate community property law to determine what is separate property. Schedule c ez form Any other income that belongs to your spouse (or former spouse) under community property law. Schedule c ez form You establish that you did not know of, and had no reason to know of, that community income. Schedule c ez form Under all facts and circumstances, it would not be fair to include the item of community income in your gross income. Schedule c ez form Requesting relief. Schedule c ez form    For information on how and when to request relief from liabilities arising from community property laws, see Community Property Laws in Publication 971, Innocent Spouse Relief. Schedule c ez form Equitable relief. Schedule c ez form    If you do not qualify for the relief discussed earlier under Relief from liability arising from community property law and are now liable for an underpaid or understated tax you believe should be paid only by your spouse (or former spouse), you may request equitable relief. Schedule c ez form To request equitable relief, you must file Form 8857, Request for Innocent Spouse Relief. Schedule c ez form Also see Publication 971. Schedule c ez form Spousal agreements. Schedule c ez form    In some states a married couple may enter into an agreement that affects the status of property or income as community or separate property. Schedule c ez form Check your state law to determine how it affects you. Schedule c ez form Nonresident alien spouse. Schedule c ez form    If you are a U. Schedule c ez form S. Schedule c ez form citizen or resident alien and you choose to treat your nonresident alien spouse as a U. Schedule c ez form S. Schedule c ez form resident for tax purposes and you are domiciled in a community property state or country, use the community property rules. Schedule c ez form You must file a joint return for the year you make the choice. Schedule c ez form You can file separate returns in later years. Schedule c ez form For details on making this choice, see Publication 519, U. Schedule c ez form S. Schedule c ez form Tax Guide for Aliens. Schedule c ez form   If you are a U. Schedule c ez form S. Schedule c ez form citizen or resident alien and do not choose to treat your nonresident alien spouse as a U. Schedule c ez form S. Schedule c ez form resident for tax purposes, treat your community income as explained next under Spouses living apart all year. Schedule c ez form However, you do not have to meet the four conditions discussed there. Schedule c ez form Spouses living apart all year. Schedule c ez form    If you are married at any time during the calendar year, special rules apply for reporting certain community income. Schedule c ez form You must meet all the following conditions for these special rules to apply. Schedule c ez form You and your spouse lived apart all year. Schedule c ez form You and your spouse did not file a joint return for a tax year beginning or ending in the calendar year. Schedule c ez form You and/or your spouse had earned income for the calendar year that is community income. Schedule c ez form You and your spouse have not transferred, directly or indirectly, any of the earned income in condition (3) above between yourselves before the end of the year. Schedule c ez form Do not take into account transfers satisfying child support obligations or transfers of very small amounts or value. Schedule c ez form If all these conditions are met, you and your spouse must report your community income as discussed next. Schedule c ez form See also Certain community income not treated as community income by one spouse , earlier. Schedule c ez form Earned income. Schedule c ez form    Treat earned income that is not trade or business or partnership income as the income of the spouse who performed the services to earn the income. Schedule c ez form Earned income is wages, salaries, professional fees, and other pay for personal services. Schedule c ez form   Earned income does not include amounts paid by a corporation that are a distribution of earnings and profits rather than a reasonable allowance for personal services rendered. Schedule c ez form Trade or business income. Schedule c ez form    Treat income and related deductions from a trade or business that is not a partnership as those of the spouse carrying on the trade or business. Schedule c ez form Partnership income or loss. Schedule c ez form    Treat income or loss from a trade or business carried on by a partnership as the income or loss of the spouse who is the partner. Schedule c ez form Separate property income. Schedule c ez form    Treat income from the separate property of one spouse as the income of that spouse. Schedule c ez form Social security benefits. Schedule c ez form    Treat social security and equivalent railroad retirement benefits as the income of the spouse who receives the benefits. Schedule c ez form Other income. Schedule c ez form    Treat all other community income, such as dividends, interest, rents, royalties, or gains, as provided under your state's community property law. Schedule c ez form Example. Schedule c ez form George and Sharon were married throughout the year but did not live together at any time during the year. Schedule c ez form Both domiciles were in a community property state. Schedule c ez form They did not file a joint return or transfer any of their earned income between themselves. Schedule c ez form During the year their incomes were as follows:   George Sharon Wages $20,000 $22,000 Consulting business 5,000   Partnership   10,000 Dividends from separate property 1,000 2,000 Interest from community property 500 500 Total $26,500 $34,500 Under the community property law of their state, all the income is considered community income. Schedule c ez form (Some states treat income from separate property as separate income—check your state law. Schedule c ez form ) Sharon did not take part in George's consulting business. Schedule c ez form Ordinarily, on their separate returns they would each report $30,500, half the total community income of $61,000 ($26,500 + $34,500). Schedule c ez form But because they meet the four conditions listed earlier under Spouses living apart all year , they must disregard community property law in reporting all their income (except the interest income) from community property. Schedule c ez form They each report on their returns only their own earnings and other income, and their share of the interest income from community property. Schedule c ez form George reports $26,500 and Sharon reports $34,500. Schedule c ez form Other separated spouses. Schedule c ez form    If you and your spouse are separated but do not meet the four conditions discussed earlier under Spouses living apart all year , you must treat your income according to the laws of your state. Schedule c ez form In some states, income earned after separation but before a decree of divorce continues to be community income. Schedule c ez form In other states, it is separate income. Schedule c ez form End of the Community The marital community may end in several ways. Schedule c ez form When the marital community ends, the community assets (money and property) are divided between the spouses. Schedule c ez form Similarly, a registered domestic partnership may end in several ways and the community assets must be divided between the registered domestic partners. Schedule c ez form Death of spouse. Schedule c ez form    If you own community property and your spouse dies, the total fair market value (FMV) of the community property, including the part that belongs to you, generally becomes the basis of the entire property. Schedule c ez form For this rule to apply, at least half the value of the community property interest must be includible in your spouse's gross estate, whether or not the estate must file a return (this rule does not apply to registered domestic partners). Schedule c ez form Example. Schedule c ez form Bob and Ann owned community property that had a basis of $80,000. Schedule c ez form When Bob died, his and Ann's community property had an FMV of $100,000. Schedule c ez form One-half of the FMV of their community interest was includible in Bob's estate. Schedule c ez form The basis of Ann's half of the property is $50,000 after Bob died (half of the $100,000 FMV). Schedule c ez form The basis of the other half to Bob's heirs is also $50,000. Schedule c ez form   For more information about the basis of assets, see Publication 551, Basis of Assets. Schedule c ez form    The above basis rule does not apply if your spouse died in 2010 and the spouse's executor elected out of the estate tax, in which case section 1022 will apply. Schedule c ez form See Publication 4895, Tax Treatment of Property Acquired From a Decedent Dying in 2010, for additional information. Schedule c ez form Divorce or separation. Schedule c ez form    If spouses divorce or separate, the (equal or unequal) division of community property in connection with the divorce or property settlement does not result in a gain or loss. Schedule c ez form For registered domestic partners, an unequal division of community property in a property settlement may result in a gain or loss. Schedule c ez form For information on the tax consequences of the division of property under a property settlement or divorce decree, see Publication 504. Schedule c ez form   Each spouse (or each registered domestic partner) is taxed on half the community income for the part of the year before the community ends. Schedule c ez form However, see Spouses living apart all year , earlier. Schedule c ez form Any income received after the community ends is separate income. Schedule c ez form This separate income is taxable only to the spouse (or the registered domestic partner) to whom it belongs. Schedule c ez form   An absolute decree of divorce or annulment ends the marital community in all community property states. Schedule c ez form A decree of annulment, even though it holds that no valid marriage ever existed, usually does not nullify community property rights arising during the “marriage. Schedule c ez form ” However, you should check your state law for exceptions. Schedule c ez form   A decree of legal separation or of separate maintenance may or may not end the marital community. Schedule c ez form The court issuing the decree may terminate the marital community and divide the property between the spouses. Schedule c ez form   A separation agreement may divide the community property between you and your spouse. Schedule c ez form It may provide that this property, along with future earnings and property acquired, will be separate property. Schedule c ez form This agreement may end the community. Schedule c ez form   In some states, the marital community ends when the spouses permanently separate, even if there is no formal agreement. Schedule c ez form Check your state law. Schedule c ez form   If you are a registered domestic partner, you should check your state law to determine when the community ends. Schedule c ez form Preparing a Federal Income Tax Return The following discussion does not apply to spouses who meet the conditions under Spouses living apart all year , discussed earlier. Schedule c ez form Those spouses must report their community income as explained in that discussion. Schedule c ez form Joint Return Versus Separate Returns Ordinarily, filing a joint return will give you a greater tax advantage than filing a separate return. Schedule c ez form But in some cases, your combined income tax on separate returns may be less than it would be on a joint return. Schedule c ez form This discussion concerning joint versus separate returns does not apply to registered domestic partners. Schedule c ez form The following rules apply if your filing status is married filing separately. Schedule c ez form You should itemize deductions if your spouse itemizes deductions, because you cannot claim the standard deduction. Schedule c ez form You cannot take the credit for child and dependent care expenses in most instances. Schedule c ez form You cannot take the earned income credit. Schedule c ez form You cannot exclude any interest income from qualified U. Schedule c ez form S. Schedule c ez form savings bonds that you used for higher education expenses. Schedule c ez form You cannot take the credit for the elderly or the disabled unless you lived apart from your spouse all year. Schedule c ez form You may have to include in income more of any social security benefits (including any equivalent railroad retirement benefits) you received during the year than you would on a joint return. Schedule c ez form You cannot deduct interest paid on a qualified student loan. Schedule c ez form You cannot take the education credits. Schedule c ez form You may have a smaller child tax credit than you would on a joint return. Schedule c ez form You cannot take the exclusion or credit for adoption expenses in most instances. Schedule c ez form Figure your tax both on a joint return and on separate returns under the community property laws of your state. Schedule c ez form You can then compare the tax figured under both methods and use the one that results in less tax. Schedule c ez form Separate Return Preparation If you file separate returns, you and your spouse must each report half of your combined community income and deductions in addition to your separate income and deductions. Schedule c ez form Each of you must complete and attach Form 8958 to your Form 1040 showing how you figured the amount you are reporting on your return. Schedule c ez form On the appropriate lines of your separate Form 1040, list only your share of the income and deductions on the appropriate lines of your separate tax returns (wages, interest, dividends, etc. Schedule c ez form ). Schedule c ez form The same reporting rule applies to registered domestic partners. Schedule c ez form For a discussion of the effect of community property laws on certain items of income, deductions, credits, and other return amounts, see Identifying Income, Deductions, and Credits , earlier. Schedule c ez form Attach your Form 8958 to your separate return showing how you figured the income, deductions, and federal income tax withheld that each of you reported. Schedule c ez form Form 8958 is used for married spouses in community property states who choose to file married filing separately. Schedule c ez form Form 8958 is also used for registered domestic partners who are domiciled in Nevada, Washington, or California. Schedule c ez form A registered domestic partner in Nevada, Washington, or California must follow state community property laws and report half the combined community income of the individual and his or her registered domestic partner. Schedule c ez form Extension of time to file. Schedule c ez form    An extension of time for filing your separate return does not extend the time for filing your spouse's (or your registered domestic partner's) separate return. Schedule c ez form If you and your spouse file a joint return, you cannot file separate returns after the due date for filing either separate return has passed.

The Schedule C Ez Form

Schedule c ez form Publication 850 (EN/SP) - Introductory Material Table of Contents Introduction Introduction This glossary is developed by the Tax Forms and Publications Division of the Internal Revenue Service, in consultation with the Translation Commission of the North American Academy of the Spanish Language (Comisión de Traducciones de la Academia Norteamericana de la Lengua Española) and with the Graduate Program in Translation of the University of Puerto Rico (Programa Graduado en Traducción de la Universidad de Puerto Rico). Schedule c ez form Its purpose is to establish high standards for the quality of language usage, to promote uniformity in language usage, and to minimize the risk of misinterpretation of Spanish-language materials issued by the Service. Schedule c ez form To meet the needs of the largest segment of taxpayers whose primary language is Spanish, the Service has issued certain Spanish-language materials. Schedule c ez form Problems arise, however, because there is some variation in tax terminology used in Spanish-speaking countries. Schedule c ez form Also, invention and compromise are involved in selecting words and phrases to describe certain tax concepts that have no precise equivalent in the Spanish language or legal tradition. Schedule c ez form To help resolve these problems, a group of United States, Spanish, and Spanish-American academicians, professors, lawyers, accountants, translators, and tax law specialists developed this glossary. Schedule c ez form Their long and varied experience with the tax systems in their own, and other countries, gives assurance of reliability. Schedule c ez form The criteria used for words in this glossary are: consistency of usage with other governmental agencies, Spanish writing style for the tax forms and publications, and words relating to Accounting, Economics, Finance, Law, Technology and its related fields. Schedule c ez form Any issuance containing language consistent with this glossary should be reasonably satisfactory for purposes of general guidance regarding the rights and obligations of taxpayers. Schedule c ez form It is not intended, however, that any term in this glossary should be understood to change the meaning of any provisions of law, regulations, or any other authoritative precedent. Schedule c ez form A periodic review is made to determine whether any additions, deletions, or revisions are needed. Schedule c ez form Some of the terms listed are identified by the abbreviation “P. Schedule c ez form R. Schedule c ez form ” These terms are for use in tax forms and publications intended for circulation exclusively in Puerto Rico.
