State tax forms to print out Items Related to Excluded Income U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out citizens and resident aliens living outside the United States generally are allowed the same deductions as citizens and residents living in the United States. State tax forms to print out If you choose to exclude foreign earned income or housing amounts, you cannot deduct, exclude, or claim a credit for any item that can be allocated to or charged against the excluded amounts. State tax forms to print out This includes any expenses, losses, and other normally deductible items that are allocable to the excluded income. State tax forms to print out You can deduct only those expenses connected with earning includible income. State tax forms to print out These rules apply only to items definitely related to the excluded earned income and they do not apply to other items that are not definitely related to any particular type of gross income. State tax forms to print out These rules do not apply to items such as: Personal exemptions, Qualified retirement contributions, Alimony payments, Charitable contributions, Medical expenses, Mortgage interest, or Real estate taxes on your personal residence. State tax forms to print out For purposes of these rules, your housing deduction is not treated as allocable to your excluded income, but the deduction for self- employment tax is. State tax forms to print out If you receive foreign earned income in a tax year after the year in which you earned it, you may have to file an amended return for the earlier year to properly adjust the amounts of deductions, credits, or exclusions allocable to your foreign earned income and housing exclusions. State tax forms to print out Example. State tax forms to print out In 2012, you had $90,400 of foreign earned income and $9,500 of deductions allocable to your foreign earned income. State tax forms to print out You did not have a housing exclusion. State tax forms to print out Because you excluded all of your foreign earned income, you would not have been able to claim any of the deductions on your 2012 return. State tax forms to print out In 2013, you received a $12,000 bonus for work you did abroad in 2012. State tax forms to print out You can exclude $4,700 of the bonus because the limit on the foreign earned income exclusion for 2012 was $95,100 and you have already excluded $90,400. State tax forms to print out Since you must include $7,300 of the bonus ($12,000 − $4,700) for work you did in 2012 in income, you can file an amended return for 2012 to claim $677 of the deductions. State tax forms to print out This is the deductions allocable to the foreign earned income ($9,500) multiplied by the includible portion of the foreign earned income ($7,300) and divided by the total foreign earned income for 2012 ($102,400). State tax forms to print out Exemptions You can claim an exemption for your nonresident alien spouse on your separate return, provided your spouse has no gross income for U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out tax purposes and is not the dependent of another U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out taxpayer.

State tax forms to print out   Children usually are citizens or residents of the same country as their parents. State tax forms to print out If you were a U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out citizen when your child was born, your child generally is a U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out citizen. State tax forms to print out This is true even if the child's other parent is a nonresident alien, the child was born in a foreign country, and the child lives abroad with the other parent. State tax forms to print out   If you have a legally adopted child who is not a U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out citizen, U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out resident, or U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out national, the child meets the citizen requirement if you are a U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out citizen or U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out national and the child lived with you as a member of your household all year. State tax forms to print out Social security number. State tax forms to print out   You must include on your return the social security number (SSN) of each dependent for whom you claim an exemption. State tax forms to print out To get a social security number for a dependent, apply at a Social Security office or U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out consulate. State tax forms to print out You must provide original or certified copies of documents to verify the dependent's age, identity, and citizenship, and complete Form SS-5. State tax forms to print out   If you do not have an SSN for a child who was born in 2013 and died in 2013, attach a copy of the child's birth certificate to your tax return. State tax forms to print out Print “Died” in column (2) of line 6c of your Form 1040 or Form 1040A. State tax forms to print out   If your dependent is a nonresident alien who is not eligible to get a social security number, you must list the dependent's individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN) instead of an SSN. State tax forms to print out To apply for an ITIN, file Form W-7 with the IRS. State tax forms to print out It usually takes 6 to 10 weeks to get an ITIN. State tax forms to print out Enter your dependent's ITIN wherever an SSN is requested on your tax return. State tax forms to print out More information. State tax forms to print out   For more information about exemptions, see Publication 501. State tax forms to print out Contributions to Foreign Charitable Organizations If you make contributions directly to a foreign church or other foreign charitable organization, you generally cannot deduct them. State tax forms to print out Exceptions are explained under Canadian, Mexican, and Israeli charities, later. State tax forms to print out You can deduct contributions to a U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out organization that transfers funds to a charitable foreign organization if the U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out organization controls the use of the funds by the foreign organization or if the foreign organization is just an administrative arm of the U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out organization. State tax forms to print out Canadian, Mexican, and Israeli charities. State tax forms to print out   Under the income tax treaties with Canada, Mexico and Israel, you may be able to deduct contributions to certain Canadian, Mexican, and Israeli charitable organizations. State tax forms to print out Generally, you must have income from sources in Canada, Mexico, or Israel, and the organization must meet certain requirements. State tax forms to print out See Publication 597, Information on the United States-Canada Income Tax Treaty, and Publication 526, Charitable Contributions, for more information. State tax forms to print out Moving Expenses If you moved to a new home in 2013 because of your job or business, you may be able to deduct the expenses of your move. State tax forms to print out Generally, to be deductible, the moving expenses must have been paid or incurred in connection with starting work at a new job location. State tax forms to print out See Publication 521 for a complete discussion of the deduction for moving expenses and information about moves within the United States. State tax forms to print out Foreign moves. State tax forms to print out   A foreign move is a move in connection with the start of work at a new job location outside the United States and its possessions. State tax forms to print out A foreign move does not include a move back to the United States or its possessions. State tax forms to print out Allocation of Moving Expenses When your new place of work is in a foreign country, your moving expenses are directly connected with the income earned in that foreign country. State tax forms to print out If you exclude all or part of the income that you earn at the new location under the foreign earned income exclusion or the foreign housing exclusion, you cannot deduct the part of your moving expense that is allocable to the excluded income. State tax forms to print out Also, you cannot deduct the part of the moving expense related to the excluded income for a move from a foreign country to the United States if you receive a reimbursement that you are able to treat as compensation for services performed in the foreign country. State tax forms to print out Year to which expense is connected. State tax forms to print out   The moving expense is connected with earning the income (including reimbursements, as discussed in chapter 4 under Reimbursement of moving expenses ) either entirely in the year of the move or in 2 years. State tax forms to print out It is connected with earning the income entirely in the year of the move if you qualify for the foreign earned income exclusion under the bona fide residence test or physical presence test for at least 120 days during that tax year. State tax forms to print out   If you do not qualify under either the bona fide residence test or the physical presence test for at least 120 days during the year of the move, the expense is connected with earning the income in 2 years. State tax forms to print out The moving expense is connected with the year of the move and the following year if the move is from the United States to a foreign country. State tax forms to print out The moving expense is connected with the year of the move and the preceding year if the move is from a foreign country to the United States. State tax forms to print out Amount allocable to excluded income. State tax forms to print out   To figure the amount of your moving expense that is allocable to your excluded foreign earned income (and not deductible), you must multiply your total moving expense deduction by a fraction. State tax forms to print out The numerator (top number) of the fraction is the total of your excluded foreign earned income and housing amounts for both years and the denominator (bottom number) of the fraction is your total foreign earned income for both years. State tax forms to print out Example. State tax forms to print out On November 1, 2012, you transfer to Monaco. State tax forms to print out Your tax home is in Monaco, and you are a bona fide resident of Monaco for the entire tax year 2013. State tax forms to print out In 2012, you paid $6,000 for allowable moving expenses for your move from the United States to Monaco. State tax forms to print out You were fully reimbursed (under a nonaccountable plan) for these expenses in the same year. State tax forms to print out The reimbursement is included in your income. State tax forms to print out Your only other income consists of $16,000 wages earned in 2012 after the date of your move, and $100,100 wages earned in Monaco for 2013. State tax forms to print out Because you did not meet the bona fide residence test for at least 120 days during 2012, the year of the move, the moving expenses are for services you performed in both 2012 and the following year, 2013. State tax forms to print out Your total foreign earned income for both years is $122,100, consisting of $16,000 wages for 2012, $100,100 wages for 2013, and $6,000 moving expense reimbursement for both years. State tax forms to print out You have no housing exclusion. State tax forms to print out The total amount you can exclude is $113,190, consisting of the $97,600 full-year exclusion for 2013 and a $15,590 part-year exclusion for 2012 ($95,100 times the fraction of 60 qualifying bona fide residence days over 366 total days in the year). State tax forms to print out To find the part of your moving expenses that is not deductible, multiply your $6,000 total expenses by the fraction $113,190 over $122,100. State tax forms to print out The result, $5,562, is your nondeductible amount. State tax forms to print out    You must report the full amount of the moving expense reimbursement in the year in which you received the reimbursement. State tax forms to print out In the preceding example, this year was 2012. State tax forms to print out You attribute the reimbursement to both 2012 and 2013 only to figure the amount of foreign earned income eligible for exclusion for each year. State tax forms to print out Move between foreign countries. State tax forms to print out   If you move between foreign countries, your moving expense is allocable to income earned in the year of the move if you qualified under either the bona fide residence test or the physical presence test for a period that includes at least 120 days in the year of the move. State tax forms to print out New place of work in U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out   If your new place of work is in the United States, the deductible moving expenses are directly connected with the income earned in the United States. State tax forms to print out If you treat a reimbursement from your employer as foreign earned income (see the discussion in chapter 4), you must allocate deductible moving expenses to foreign earned income. State tax forms to print out Storage expenses. State tax forms to print out   These expenses are attributable to work you do during the year in which you incur the storage expenses. State tax forms to print out You cannot deduct the amount allocable to excluded income. State tax forms to print out Moving Expense Attributable to Foreign Earnings in 2 Years If your moving expense deduction is attributable to your foreign earnings in 2 years (the year of the move and the following year), you should request an extension of time to file your return for the year of the move until after the end of the second year. State tax forms to print out By then, you should have all the information needed to properly figure the moving expense deduction. State tax forms to print out See Extensions under When To File and Pay in chapter 1. State tax forms to print out If you do not request an extension, you should figure the part of the moving expense that you cannot deduct because it is allocable to the foreign earned income you are excluding. State tax forms to print out You do this by multiplying the moving expense by a fraction, the numerator (top number) of which is your excluded foreign earned income for the year of the move, and the denominator (bottom number) of which is your total foreign earned income for the year of the move. State tax forms to print out Once you know your foreign earnings and exclusion for the following year, you must either: Adjust the moving expense deduction by filing an amended return for the year of the move, or Recapture any additional unallowable amount as income on your return for the following year. State tax forms to print out If, after you make the final computation, you have an additional amount of allowable moving expense deduction, you can claim this only on an amended return for the year of the move. State tax forms to print out You cannot claim it on the return for the second year. State tax forms to print out Forms To File Report your moving expenses on Form 3903. State tax forms to print out Report your moving expense deduction on line 26 of Form 1040. State tax forms to print out If you must reduce your moving expenses by the amount allocable to excluded income (as explained later under How To Report Deductions ), attach a statement to your return showing how you figured this amount. State tax forms to print out For more information about figuring moving expenses, see Publication 521. State tax forms to print out Contributions to Individual Retirement Arrangements Contributions to your individual retirement arrangements (IRAs) that are traditional IRAs or Roth IRAs are generally limited to the lesser of $5,500 ($6,500 if 50 or older) or your compensation that is includible in your gross income for the tax year. State tax forms to print out In determining compensation for this purpose, do not take into account amounts you exclude under either the foreign earned income exclusion or the foreign housing exclusion. State tax forms to print out Do not reduce your compensation by the foreign housing deduction. State tax forms to print out If you are covered by an employer retirement plan at work, your deduction for your contributions to your traditional IRAs is generally limited based on your modified adjusted gross income. State tax forms to print out This is your adjusted gross income figured without taking into account the foreign earned income exclusion, the foreign housing exclusion, or the foreign housing deduction. State tax forms to print out Other modifications are also required. State tax forms to print out For more information on IRAs, see Publication 590. State tax forms to print out Taxes of Foreign Countries and U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out Possessions You can take either a credit or a deduction for income taxes paid to a foreign country or a U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out possession. State tax forms to print out Taken as a deduction, foreign income taxes reduce your taxable income. State tax forms to print out Taken as a credit, foreign income taxes reduce your tax liability. State tax forms to print out You must treat all foreign income taxes the same way. State tax forms to print out If you take a credit for any foreign income taxes, you cannot deduct any foreign income taxes. State tax forms to print out However, you may be able to deduct other foreign taxes. State tax forms to print out See Deduction for Other Foreign Taxes, later. State tax forms to print out There is no rule to determine whether it is to your advantage to take a deduction or a credit for foreign income taxes. State tax forms to print out In most cases, it is to your advantage to take foreign income taxes as a tax credit, which you subtract directly from your U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out tax liability, rather than as a deduction in figuring taxable income. State tax forms to print out However, if foreign income taxes were imposed at a high rate and the proportion of foreign income to U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out income is small, a lower final tax may result from deducting the foreign income taxes. State tax forms to print out In any event, you should figure your tax liability both ways and then use the one that is better for you. State tax forms to print out You can make or change your choice within 10 years from the due date for filing the tax return on which you are entitled to take either the deduction or the credit. State tax forms to print out Foreign income taxes. State tax forms to print out   These are generally income taxes you pay to any foreign country or possession of the United States. State tax forms to print out Foreign income taxes on U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out return. State tax forms to print out   Foreign income taxes can only be taken as a credit on Form 1040, line 47, or as an itemized deduction on Schedule A. State tax forms to print out These amounts cannot be included as withheld income taxes on Form 1040, line 62. State tax forms to print out Foreign taxes paid on excluded income. State tax forms to print out   You cannot take a credit or deduction for foreign income taxes paid on earnings you exclude from tax under any of the following. State tax forms to print out Foreign earned income exclusion. State tax forms to print out Foreign housing exclusion. State tax forms to print out Possession exclusion. State tax forms to print out If your wages are completely excluded, you cannot deduct or take a credit for any of the foreign taxes paid on your wages. State tax forms to print out   If only part of your wages is excluded, you cannot deduct or take a credit for the foreign income taxes allocable to the excluded part. State tax forms to print out You find the taxes allocable to your excluded wages by applying a fraction to the foreign taxes paid on foreign earned income received during the tax year. State tax forms to print out The numerator (top number) of the fraction is your excluded foreign earned income received during the tax year minus deductible expenses allocable to that income (not including the foreign housing deduction). State tax forms to print out The denominator (bottom number) of the fraction is your total foreign earned income received during the tax year minus all deductible expenses allocable to that income (including the foreign housing deduction). State tax forms to print out   If foreign law taxes both earned income and some other type of income and the taxes on the other type cannot be separated, the denominator of the fraction is the total amount of income subject to foreign tax minus deductible expenses allocable to that income. State tax forms to print out    If you take a foreign tax credit for tax on income you could have excluded under your choice to exclude foreign earned income or your choice to exclude foreign housing costs, one or both of the choices may be considered revoked. State tax forms to print out Credit for Foreign Income Taxes If you take the foreign tax credit, you may have to file Form 1116 with Form 1040. State tax forms to print out Form 1116 is used to figure the amount of foreign tax paid or accrued that can be claimed as a foreign tax credit. State tax forms to print out Do not include the amount of foreign tax paid or accrued as withheld federal income taxes on Form 1040, line 62. State tax forms to print out The foreign income tax for which you can claim a credit is the amount of legal and actual tax liability you pay or accrue during the year. State tax forms to print out The amount for which you can claim a credit is not necessarily the amount withheld by the foreign country. State tax forms to print out You cannot take a foreign tax credit for income tax you paid to a foreign country that would be refunded by the foreign country if you made a claim for refund. State tax forms to print out Subsidies. State tax forms to print out   If a foreign country returns your foreign tax payments to you in the form of a subsidy, you cannot claim a foreign tax credit based on these payments. State tax forms to print out This rule applies to a subsidy provided by any means that is determined, directly or indirectly, by reference to the amount of tax, or to the base used to figure the tax. State tax forms to print out   Some ways of providing a subsidy are refunds, credits, deductions, payments, or discharges of obligations. State tax forms to print out A credit is also not allowed if the subsidy is given to a person related to you, or persons who participated in a transaction or a related transaction with you. State tax forms to print out Limit The foreign tax credit is limited to the part of your total U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out tax that is in proportion to your taxable income from sources outside the United States compared to your total taxable income. State tax forms to print out The allowable foreign tax credit cannot be more than your actual foreign tax liability. State tax forms to print out Exemption from limit. State tax forms to print out   You will not be subject to this limit and will not have to file Form 1116 if you meet all three of the following requirements. State tax forms to print out Your only foreign source income for the year is passive income (dividends, interest, royalties, etc. State tax forms to print out ) that is reported to you on a payee statement (such as a Form 1099-DIV or 1099-INT). State tax forms to print out Your foreign taxes for the year that qualify for the credit are not more than $300 ($600 if you are filing a joint return) and are reported on a payee statement. State tax forms to print out You elect this procedure. State tax forms to print out If you make this election, you cannot carry back or carry over any unused foreign tax to or from this year. State tax forms to print out Separate limit. State tax forms to print out   You must figure the limit on a separate basis with regard to “passive category income” and “general category income” (see the instructions for Form 1116). State tax forms to print out Figuring the limit. State tax forms to print out   In figuring taxable income in each category, you take into account only the amount that you must include in income on your federal tax return. State tax forms to print out Do not take any excluded amount into account. State tax forms to print out   To determine your taxable income in each category, deduct expenses and losses that are definitely related to that income. State tax forms to print out   Other expenses (such as itemized deductions or the standard deduction) not definitely related to specific items of income must be apportioned to the foreign income in each category by multiplying them by a fraction. State tax forms to print out The numerator (top number) of the fraction is your gross foreign income in the separate limit category. State tax forms to print out The denominator (bottom number) of the fraction is your gross income from all sources. State tax forms to print out For this purpose, gross income includes income that is excluded under the foreign earned income provisions but does not include any other exempt income. State tax forms to print out You must use special rules for deducting interest expenses. State tax forms to print out For more information on allocating and apportioning your deductions, see Publication 514. State tax forms to print out Exemptions. State tax forms to print out   Do not take the deduction for exemptions for yourself, your spouse, or your dependents in figuring taxable income for purposes of the limit. State tax forms to print out Recapture of foreign losses. State tax forms to print out   If you have an overall foreign loss and the loss reduces your U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out source income (resulting in a reduction of your U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out tax liability), you must recapture the loss in later years when you have taxable income from foreign sources. State tax forms to print out This is done by treating a part of your taxable income from foreign sources in later years as U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out source income. State tax forms to print out This reduces the numerator of the limiting fraction and the resulting foreign tax credit limit. State tax forms to print out Recapture of domestic losses. State tax forms to print out   If you have an overall domestic loss (resulting in no U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out tax liability), you cannot claim a foreign tax credit for taxes paid during that year. State tax forms to print out You must recapture the loss in later years when you have U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out source taxable income. State tax forms to print out This is done by treating a part of your taxable income from U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out sources in later years as foreign source income. State tax forms to print out This increases the numerator of the limiting fraction and the resulting foreign tax credit limit. State tax forms to print out Foreign tax credit carryback and carryover. State tax forms to print out   The amount of foreign income tax not allowed as a credit because of the limit can be carried back 1 year and carried forward 10 years. State tax forms to print out   More information on figuring the foreign tax credit can be found in Publication 514. State tax forms to print out Deduction for Foreign Income Taxes Instead of taking the foreign tax credit, you can deduct foreign income taxes as an itemized deduction on Schedule A (Form 1040). State tax forms to print out You can deduct only foreign income taxes paid on income that is subject to U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out tax. State tax forms to print out You cannot deduct foreign taxes paid on earnings you exclude from tax under any of the following. State tax forms to print out Foreign earned income exclusion. State tax forms to print out Foreign housing exclusion. State tax forms to print out Possession exclusion. State tax forms to print out Example. State tax forms to print out You are a U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out citizen and qualify to exclude your foreign earned income. State tax forms to print out Your excluded wages in Country X are $70,000 on which you paid income tax of $10,000. State tax forms to print out You received dividends from Country X of $2,000 on which you paid income tax of $600. State tax forms to print out You can deduct the $600 tax payment because the dividends relating to it are subject to U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out tax. State tax forms to print out Because you exclude your wages, you cannot deduct the income tax of $10,000. State tax forms to print out If you exclude only a part of your wages, see the earlier discussion under Foreign taxes paid on excluded income. State tax forms to print out Deduction for Other Foreign Taxes You can deduct real property taxes you pay that are imposed on you by a foreign country. State tax forms to print out You take this deduction on Schedule A (Form 1040). State tax forms to print out You cannot deduct other foreign taxes, such as personal property taxes, unless you incurred the expenses in a trade or business or in the production of income. State tax forms to print out On the other hand, you generally can deduct personal property taxes when you pay them to U. State tax forms to print out S. State tax forms to print out possessions. State tax forms to print out But if you claim the possession exclusion, see Publication 570. State tax forms to print out The deduction for foreign taxes other than foreign income taxes is not related to the foreign tax credit. State tax forms to print out You can take deductions for these miscellaneous foreign taxes and also claim the foreign tax credit for income taxes imposed by a foreign country. State tax forms to print out How To Report Deductions If you exclude foreign earned income or housing amounts, how you show your deductions on your tax return and how you figure the amount allocable to your excluded income depends on whether the expenses are used in figuring adjusted gross income (Form 1040, line 38) or are itemized deductions. State tax forms to print out If you have deductions used in figuring adjusted gross income, enter the total amount for each of these items on the appropriate lines and schedules of Form 1040.
