Free h & r block online Interest paid by a resident alien or a domestic corporation on obligations issued before August 10, 2010, if for the 3-year period ending with the close of the payer's tax year preceding the interest payment, at least 80% of the payer's total gross income: Is from sources outside the United States, and Is attributable to the active conduct of a trade or business by the individual or corporation in a foreign country or a U.

Free h & r block online source income if the corporation elects to take the American Samoa economic development credit. Free h & r block online Second exception. Free h & r block online   Part of the dividends received from a foreign corporation is U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online source income if 25% or more of its total gross income for the 3-year period ending with the close of its tax year preceding the declaration of dividends was effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States. Free h & r block online If the corporation was formed less than 3 years before the declaration, use its total gross income from the time it was formed.

Free h & r block online If you are an employee and receive compensation for labor or personal services performed both inside and outside the United States, special rules apply in determining the source of the compensation. Free h & r block online Compensation (other than certain fringe benefits) is sourced on a time basis. Free h & r block online Certain fringe benefits (such as housing and education) are sourced on a geographical basis. Free h & r block online Or, you may be permitted to use an alternative basis to determine the source of compensation. Free h & r block online See Alternative Basis , later. Free h & r block online Multi-level marketing. Free h & r block online   Certain companies sell products through a multi-level marketing arrangement, such that an upper-tier distributor, who has sponsored a lower-tier distributor, is entitled to a payment from the company based on certain activities of that lower-tier distributor. Free h & r block online Generally, depending on the facts, payments from such multi-level marketing companies to independent (non-employee) distributors (upper-tier distributors) that are based on the sales or purchases of persons whom they have sponsored (lower-tier distributors) constitute income for the performance of personal services in recruiting, training, and supporting the lower-tier distributors. Free h & r block online The source of such income is generally based on where the services of the upper-tier distributor are performed, and may, depending on the facts, be considered multi-year compensation, with the source of income determined over the period to which such compensation is attributable. Free h & r block online Self-employed individuals. Free h & r block online   If you are self-employed, you determine the source of compensation for labor or personal services from self-employment on the basis that most correctly reflects the proper source of that income under the facts and circumstances of your particular case. Free h & r block online In many cases, the facts and circumstances will call for an apportionment on a time basis as explained next. Free h & r block online Time Basis Use a time basis to figure your U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online source compensation (other than the fringe benefits discussed later). Free h & r block online Do this by multiplying your total compensation (other than the fringe benefits discussed later) by the following fraction:   Number of days you performed services in the United States during the year     Total number of days you performed services during the year   You can use a unit of time less than a day in the above fraction, if appropriate. Free h & r block online The time period for which the compensation is made does not have to be a year. Free h & r block online Instead, you can use another distinct, separate, and continuous time period if you can establish to the satisfaction of the IRS that this other period is more appropriate. Free h & r block online Example 1. Free h & r block online Christina Brooks, a resident of the Netherlands, worked 240 days for a U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online company during the tax year. Free h & r block online She received $80,000 in compensation. Free h & r block online None of it was for fringe benefits. Free h & r block online Christina performed services in the United States for 60 days and performed services in the Netherlands for 180 days. Free h & r block online Using the time basis for determining the source of compensation, $20,000 ($80,000 × 60/240) is her U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online source income. Free h & r block online Example 2. Free h & r block online Rob Waters, a resident of South Africa, is employed by a corporation. Free h & r block online His annual salary is $100,000. Free h & r block online None of it is for fringe benefits. Free h & r block online During the first quarter of the year he worked entirely within the United States. Free h & r block online On April 1, Rob was transferred to Singapore for the remainder of the year. Free h & r block online Rob is able to establish that the first quarter of the year and the last 3 quarters of the year are two separate, distinct, and continuous periods of time. Free h & r block online Accordingly, $25,000 of Rob's annual salary is attributable to the first quarter of the year (. Free h & r block online 25 × $100,000). Free h & r block online All of it is U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online source income because he worked entirely within the United States during that quarter. Free h & r block online The remaining $75,000 is attributable to the last three quarters of the year. Free h & r block online During those quarters, he worked 150 days in Singapore and 30 days in the United States. Free h & r block online His periodic performance of services in the United States did not result in distinct, separate, and continuous periods of time. Free h & r block online Of this $75,000, $12,500 ($75,000 × 30/180) is U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online source income. Free h & r block online Multi-year compensation. Free h & r block online   The source of multi-year compensation is generally determined on a time basis over the period to which the compensation is attributable. Free h & r block online Multi-year compensation is compensation that is included in your income in one tax year but that is attributable to a period that includes two or more tax years. Free h & r block online   You determine the period to which the compensation is attributable based on the facts and circumstances of your case. Free h & r block online For example, an amount of compensation that specifically relates to a period of time that includes several calendar years is attributable to the entire multi-year period. Free h & r block online   The amount of compensation treated as from U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online sources is figured by multiplying the total multi-year compensation by a fraction. Free h & r block online The numerator of the fraction is the number of days (or unit of time less than a day, if appropriate) that you performed labor or personal services in the United States in connection with the project. Free h & r block online The denominator of the fraction is the total number of days (or unit of time less than a day, if appropriate) that you performed labor or personal services in connection with the project. Free h & r block online Geographical Basis Compensation you receive as an employee in the form of the following fringe benefits is sourced on a geographical basis. Free h & r block online Housing. Free h & r block online Education. Free h & r block online Local transportation. Free h & r block online Tax reimbursement. Free h & r block online Hazardous or hardship duty pay as defined in Regulations section 1. Free h & r block online 861-4(b)(2)(ii)(D)(5). Free h & r block online Moving expense reimbursement. Free h & r block online The amount of fringe benefits must be reasonable and you must substantiate them by adequate records or by sufficient evidence. Free h & r block online Principal place of work. Free h & r block online   The above fringe benefits, except for tax reimbursement and hazardous or hardship duty pay, are sourced based on your principal place of work. Free h & r block online Your principal place of work is usually the place where you spend most of your working time. Free h & r block online This could be your office, plant, store, shop, or other location. Free h & r block online If there is no one place where you spend most of your working time, your main job location is the place where your work is centered, such as where you report for work or are otherwise required to “base” your work. Free h & r block online   If you have more than one job at any time, your main job location depends on the facts in each case. Free h & r block online The more important factors to be considered are: The total time you spend at each place, The amount of work you do at each place, and How much money you earn at each place. Free h & r block online Housing. Free h & r block online   The source of a housing fringe benefit is determined based on the location of your principal place of work. Free h & r block online A housing fringe benefit includes payments to you or on your behalf (and your family's if your family resides with you) only for the following. Free h & r block online Rent. Free h & r block online Utilities (except telephone charges). Free h & r block online Real and personal property insurance. Free h & r block online Occupancy taxes not deductible under section 164 or 216(a). Free h & r block online Nonrefundable fees for securing a leasehold. Free h & r block online Rental of furniture and accessories. Free h & r block online Household repairs. Free h & r block online Residential parking. Free h & r block online Fair rental value of housing provided in kind by your employer. Free h & r block online   A housing fringe benefit does not include: Deductible interest and taxes (including deductible interest and taxes of a tenant-stockholder in a cooperative housing corporation), The cost of buying property, including principal payments on a mortgage, The cost of domestic labor (maids, gardeners, etc. Free h & r block online ), Pay television subscriptions, Improvements and other expenses that increase the value or appreciably prolong the life of property, Purchased furniture or accessories, Depreciation or amortization of property or improvements, The value of meals or lodging that you exclude from gross income, or The value of meals or lodging that you deduct as moving expenses. Free h & r block online Education. Free h & r block online   The source of an education fringe benefit for the education expenses of your dependents is determined based on the location of your principal place of work. Free h & r block online An education fringe benefit includes payments only for the following expenses for education at an elementary or secondary school. Free h & r block online Tuition, fees, academic tutoring, special needs services for a special needs student, books, supplies, and other equipment. Free h & r block online Room and board and uniforms that are required or provided by the school in connection with enrollment or attendance. Free h & r block online Local transportation. Free h & r block online   The source of a local transportation fringe benefit is determined based on the location of your principal place of work. Free h & r block online Your local transportation fringe benefit is the amount that you receive as compensation for local transportation for you or your spouse or dependents at the location of your principal place of work. Free h & r block online The amount treated as a local transportation fringe benefit is limited to actual expenses incurred for local transportation and the fair rental value of any employer-provided vehicle used predominantly by you, your spouse, or your dependents for local transportation. Free h & r block online Actual expenses do not include the cost (including interest) of any vehicle purchased by you or on your behalf. Free h & r block online Tax reimbursement. Free h & r block online   The source of a tax reimbursement fringe benefit is determined based on the location of the jurisdiction that imposed the tax for which you are reimbursed. Free h & r block online Moving expense reimbursement. Free h & r block online   The source of a moving expense reimbursement is generally based on the location of your new principal place of work. Free h & r block online However, the source is determined based on the location of your former principal place of work if you provide sufficient evidence that such determination of source is more appropriate under the facts and circumstances of your case. Free h & r block online Sufficient evidence generally requires an agreement between you and your employer, or a written statement of company policy, which is reduced to writing before the move and which is entered into or established to induce you or other employees to move to another country. Free h & r block online The written statement or agreement must state that your employer will reimburse you for moving expenses that you incur to return to your former principal place of work regardless of whether you continue to work for your employer after returning to that location. Free h & r block online It may contain certain conditions upon which the right to reimbursement is determined as long as those conditions set forth standards that are definitely ascertainable and can only be fulfilled prior to, or through completion of, your return move to your former principal place of work. Free h & r block online Alternative Basis If you are an employee, you can determine the source of your compensation under an alternative basis if you establish to the satisfaction of the IRS that, under the facts and circumstances of your case, the alternative basis more properly determines the source of your compensation than the time or geographical basis. Free h & r block online If you use an alternative basis, you must keep (and have available for inspection) records to document why the alternative basis more properly determines the source of your compensation. Free h & r block online Also, if your total compensation from all sources is $250,000 or more, check “Yes” to both questions on line K on page 5 of Form 1040NR, and attach a written statement to your tax return that sets forth all of the following. Free h & r block online Your name and social security number (written across the top of the statement). Free h & r block online The specific compensation income, or the specific fringe benefit, for which you are using the alternative basis. Free h & r block online For each item in (2), the alternative basis of allocation of source used. Free h & r block online For each item in (2), a computation showing how the alternative allocation was computed. Free h & r block online A comparison of the dollar amount of the U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online compensation and foreign compensation sourced under both the alternative basis and the time or geographical basis discussed earlier. Free h & r block online Transportation Income Transportation income is income from the use of a vessel or aircraft or for the performance of services directly related to the use of any vessel or aircraft. Free h & r block online This is true whether the vessel or aircraft is owned, hired, or leased. Free h & r block online The term “vessel or aircraft” includes any container used in connection with a vessel or aircraft. Free h & r block online All income from transportation that begins and ends in the United States is treated as derived from sources in the United States. Free h & r block online If the transportation begins or ends in the United States, 50% of the transportation income is treated as derived from sources in the United States. Free h & r block online For transportation income from personal services, 50% of the income is U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online source income if the transportation is between the United States and a U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online possession. Free h & r block online For nonresident aliens, this only applies to income derived from, or in connection with, an aircraft. Free h & r block online For information on how U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online source transportation income is taxed, see chapter 4. Free h & r block online Scholarships, Grants, Prizes, and Awards Generally, the source of scholarships, fellowship grants, grants, prizes, and awards is the residence of the payer regardless of who actually disburses the funds. Free h & r block online However, see Activities to be performed outside the United States , later. Free h & r block online For example, payments for research or study in the United States made by the United States, a noncorporate U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online resident, or a domestic corporation, are from U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online sources. Free h & r block online Similar payments from a foreign government or foreign corporation are foreign source payments even though the funds may be disbursed through a U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online agent. Free h & r block online Payments made by an entity designated as a public international organization under the International Organizations Immunities Act are from foreign sources. Free h & r block online Activities to be performed outside the United States. Free h & r block online   Scholarships, fellowship grants, targeted grants, and achievement awards received by nonresident aliens for activities performed, or to be performed, outside the United States are not U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online source income. Free h & r block online    These rules do not apply to amounts paid as salary or other compensation for services. Free h & r block online See Personal Services, earlier, for the source rules that apply. Free h & r block online Pensions and Annuities If you receive a pension from a domestic trust for services performed both in and outside the United States, part of the pension payment is from U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online sources. Free h & r block online That part is the amount attributable to earnings of the pension plan and the employer contributions made for services performed in the United States. Free h & r block online This applies whether the distribution is made under a qualified or nonqualified stock bonus, pension, profit-sharing, or annuity plan (whether or not funded). Free h & r block online If you performed services as an employee of the United States, you may receive a distribution from the U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online Government under a plan, such as the Civil Service Retirement System, that is treated as a qualified pension plan. Free h & r block online Your U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online source income is the otherwise taxable amount of the distribution that is attributable to your total U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online Government basic pay other than tax-exempt pay for services performed outside the United States. Free h & r block online Rents or Royalties Your U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online source income includes rent and royalty income received during the tax year from property located in the United States or from any interest in that property. Free h & r block online U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online source income also includes rents or royalties for the use of, or for the privilege of using, in the United States, intangible property such as patents, copyrights, secret processes and formulas, goodwill, trademarks, franchises, and similar property. Free h & r block online Real Property Real property is land and buildings and generally anything built on, growing on, or attached to land. Free h & r block online Gross income from sources in the United States includes gains, profits, and income from the sale or other disposition of real property located in the United States. Free h & r block online Natural resources. Free h & r block online   The income from the sale of products of any farm, mine, oil or gas well, other natural deposit, or timber located in the United States and sold in a foreign country, or located in a foreign country and sold in the United States, is partly from sources in the United States. Free h & r block online For information on determining that part, see section 1. Free h & r block online 863-1(b) of the regulations. Free h & r block online Table 2-1. Free h & r block online Summary of Source Rules for Income of Nonresident Aliens Item of income Factor determining source Salaries, wages, other compensation Where services performed Business income:   Personal services Where services performed Sale of inventory—purchased Where sold Sale of inventory—produced Allocation Interest Residence of payer Dividends Whether a U.

Free h & r block online For more information, see section 1. Free h & r block online 863-1(b) of the regulations. Free h & r block online *Exceptions include: a) Dividends paid by a U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online corporation are foreign source if the corporation elects the  American Samoa economic development credit. Free h & r block online  b) Part of a dividend paid by a foreign corporation is U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online source if at least 25% of the  corporation's gross income is effectively connected with a U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online trade or business for the  3 tax years before the year in which the dividends are declared. Free h & r block online Personal Property Personal property is property, such as machinery, equipment, or furniture, that is not real property. Free h & r block online Gain or loss from the sale or exchange of personal property generally has its source in the United States if you have a tax home in the United States. Free h & r block online If you do not have a tax home in the United States, the gain or loss generally is considered to be from sources outside the United States. Free h & r block online Tax home. Free h & r block online   Your tax home is the general area of your main place of business, employment, or post of duty, regardless of where you maintain your family home. Free h & r block online Your tax home is the place where you permanently or indefinitely work as an employee or a self-employed individual. Free h & r block online If you do not have a regular or main place of business because of the nature of your work, then your tax home is the place where you regularly live. Free h & r block online If you do not fit either of these categories, you are considered an itinerant and your tax home is wherever you work. Free h & r block online Inventory property. Free h & r block online   Inventory property is personal property that is stock in trade or that is held primarily for sale to customers in the ordinary course of your trade or business. Free h & r block online Income from the sale of inventory that you purchased is sourced where the property is sold. Free h & r block online Generally, this is where title to the property passes to the buyer. Free h & r block online For example, income from the sale of inventory in the United States is U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online source income, whether you purchased it in the United States or in a foreign country. Free h & r block online   Income from the sale of inventory property that you produced in the United States and sold outside the United States (or vice versa) is partly from sources in the United States and partly from sources outside the United States. Free h & r block online For information on making this allocation, see section 1. Free h & r block online 863-3 of the regulations. Free h & r block online   These rules apply even if your tax home is not in the United States. Free h & r block online Depreciable property. Free h & r block online   To determine the source of any gain from the sale of depreciable personal property, you must first figure the part of the gain that is not more than the total depreciation adjustments on the property. Free h & r block online You allocate this part of the gain to sources in the United States based on the ratio of U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online depreciation adjustments to total depreciation adjustments. Free h & r block online The rest of this part of the gain is considered to be from sources outside the United States. Free h & r block online   For this purpose, “U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online depreciation adjustments” are the depreciation adjustments to the basis of the property that are allowable in figuring taxable income from U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online sources. Free h & r block online However, if the property is used predominantly in the United States during a tax year, all depreciation deductions allowable for that year are treated as U. Free h & r block online S. Free h & r block online depreciation adjustments. Free h & r block online But there are some exceptions for certain transportation, communications, and other property used internationally.

Get Answers to Your Questions

When searching for a doctor, dentist or other health care professional:

  • Find out whether they are licensed in your state. A state or local occupational and professional licensing board will be able to give you this information.
  • Research whether they are board-certified in the appropriate specialty. You can find this information on the websites of the American Medical Association and the American Board of Medical Specialties.
  • Ask how often the health care professional has done the procedure you need or has treated your condition. You may be able to find some of this information on the Internet. For example, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report the success rates and number of procedures performed by fertility clinics. Some states collect and post data on the success of heart-bypass surgery.
  • Check whether there have been any complaints or disciplinary actions taken. Websites that can help are: Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and Healthfinder.gov.
  • Find out what doctors participate in your health insurance plan. If you are having surgery, check to see if all providers (radiologists, anesthesiologists) are also covered by your plan, to avoid surprise bills.

Consider these questions regarding your health care provider and his or her practice:

  • Does the doctor participate in your insurance plan?
  • Is the office in an area that you can get to easily or does it have hours during times when you can make an appointment?
  • Does the doctor have privileges at the hospital you prefer?
  • Do you get along well with the doctor? Do you feel that you communicate well with each other and that he or she listens to your concerns and explains diagnoses and benefits of new treatments and prescriptions clearly?
  • What is the doctor’s cancelation policy?
  • Will you have to pay for the visit if you cancel your appointment?
