Vt dept of taxes forms For more information on these codes, see your Form(s) W-2. Vt dept of taxes forms Adjustments to Income Adjusted gross income is your total income minus certain adjustments. Vt dept of taxes forms The following adjustments are of particular interest to members of the Armed Forces. Vt dept of taxes forms Armed Forces Reservists If you are a member of a reserve component of the Armed Forces and you travel more than 100 miles away from home in connection with your performance of services as a member of the reserves, you can deduct your unreimbursed travel expenses as an adjustment to income on line 24 of Form 1040, U. Vt dept of taxes forms S. Vt dept of taxes forms Individual Income Tax Return, rather than as a miscellaneous itemized deduction. Vt dept of taxes forms Include all unreimbursed expenses from the time you leave home until the time you return home. Vt dept of taxes forms The deduction is limited to the amount the federal government generally reimburses its employees for travel expenses. Vt dept of taxes forms For more information about this limit, see Per Diem and Car Allowances in chapter 6 of Publication 463. Vt dept of taxes forms Member of a reserve component. Vt dept of taxes forms   You are a member of a reserve component of the Armed Forces if you are in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, or Coast Guard Reserve, the Army National Guard of the United States, the Air National Guard of the United States, or the Reserve Corps of the Public Health Service. Vt dept of taxes forms How to report. Vt dept of taxes forms   If you have reserve-related travel that takes you more than 100 miles from home, you should first complete Form 2106, Employee Business Expenses, or Form 2106-EZ, Unreimbursed Employee Business Expenses. Vt dept of taxes forms Then enter on Form 1040, line 24, the part of your expenses, up to the federal rate, included on Form 2106, line 10, or Form 2106-EZ, line 6, that is for reserve-related travel more than 100 miles from your home. Vt dept of taxes forms Subtract this amount from the total on Form 2106, line 10, or Form 2106-EZ, line 6, and deduct the balance as an itemized deduction on Schedule A (Form 1040), line 21. Vt dept of taxes forms Example. Vt dept of taxes forms Captain Harris, a member of the Army Reserve, traveled to a location 220 miles from his home to perform his work in the reserves in April 2013. Vt dept of taxes forms He incurred $1,549 of unreimbursed expenses consisting of $249 for mileage (440 miles × 56. Vt dept of taxes forms 5 cents per mile), $300 for meals, and $1,000 for lodging. Vt dept of taxes forms He also had other deductible mileage expenses of $110 for several trips to a location 20 miles from his home. Vt dept of taxes forms Only 50% of his meal expenses are deductible. Vt dept of taxes forms He shows his total deductible travel expenses of $1,509 ($249 + $150 (50% of $300) + $1,000 + $110) on Form 2106, line 10. Vt dept of taxes forms He enters the $1,399 ($249 + $150 + $1,000) for travel over 100 miles from home on Form 1040, line 24. Vt dept of taxes forms He then subtracts that $1,399 from the amount on Form 2106, $1,509, and enters $110 on Schedule A (Form 1040), line 21. Vt dept of taxes forms Individual Retirement Arrangements Generally, you can deduct the lesser of the contributions to your traditional individual retirement arrangement (IRA) for the year or the general limit (or spousal IRA limit, if applicable). Vt dept of taxes forms However, if you or your spouse was covered by an employer-maintained retirement plan at any time during the year for which contributions were made, you may not be able to deduct all of the contributions. Vt dept of taxes forms The Form W-2 you or your spouse receives from an employer has a box used to indicate whether you were covered for the year. Vt dept of taxes forms The “Retirement plan” box should have a mark in it if you were covered. Vt dept of taxes forms For purposes of a deduction for contributions to a traditional IRA, Armed Forces members (including reservists on active duty for more than 90 days during the year) are considered covered by an employer-maintained retirement plan. Vt dept of taxes forms Individuals serving in the U. Vt dept of taxes forms S. Vt dept of taxes forms Armed Forces or in support of the U. Vt dept of taxes forms S. Vt dept of taxes forms Armed Forces in designated combat zones have additional time to make a qualified retirement contribution to an IRA.

Vt dept of taxes forms Combat Pay For IRA purposes, your compensation includes nontaxable combat pay. Vt dept of taxes forms This means that even though you do not have to include the combat pay in your gross income, you do include it in your compensation when figuring the limits on contributions and deductions of contributions to IRAs. Vt dept of taxes forms Qualified Reservist Distributions A qualified reservist distribution is defined below. Vt dept of taxes forms It is not subject to the 10% additional tax on early distributions from certain retirement plans. Vt dept of taxes forms Definition.

Vt dept of taxes forms You were ordered or called to active duty after September 11, 2001. Vt dept of taxes forms You were ordered or called to active duty for a period of more than 179 days or for an indefinite period because you are a member of a reserve component (see Member of a reserve component , earlier, under Armed Forces Reservists. Vt dept of taxes forms ) The distribution is from an IRA or from amounts attributable to elective deferrals under a section 401(k) or 403(b) plan or a similar arrangement. Vt dept of taxes forms The distribution was made no earlier than the date of the order or call to active duty and no later than the close of the active duty period. Vt dept of taxes forms Qualified Reservist Repayments You may be able to contribute (repay) to an IRA amounts equal to any qualified reservist distributions (defined earlier) you received. Vt dept of taxes forms You can make these repayment contributions even if they would cause your total contributions to the IRA to be more than the general limit on contributions. Vt dept of taxes forms You make these repayment contributions to an IRA, even if you received the qualified reservist distribution from a section 401(k) or 403(b) plan or a similar arrangement. Vt dept of taxes forms Limit. Vt dept of taxes forms   Your qualified reservist repayments cannot be more than your qualified reservist distributions. Vt dept of taxes forms When repayment contributions can be made.

Vt dept of taxes forms Moving Expenses To deduct moving expenses, you generally must meet certain time and distance tests. Vt dept of taxes forms However, if you are a member of the Armed Forces on active duty and you move because of a permanent change of station, you do not have to meet these tests. Vt dept of taxes forms You can deduct your unreimbursed moving expenses on Form 3903. Vt dept of taxes forms Permanent change of station.

Vt dept of taxes forms   If the military moves you to or from a different location than the member, the moves are treated as a single move to your new main job location. Vt dept of taxes forms Services or reimbursements provided by the government. Vt dept of taxes forms   Do not include in your income the value of moving and storage services provided by the government because of a permanent change of station. Vt dept of taxes forms Similarly, do not include in income amounts received as a dislocation allowance, temporary lodging expense, temporary lodging allowance, or move-in housing allowance. Vt dept of taxes forms   Generally, if the total reimbursements or allowances that you receive from the government because of the move are more than your actual moving expenses, the excess is included in your wages on Form W-2. Vt dept of taxes forms However, if any reimbursements or allowances (other than dislocation, temporary lodging, temporary lodging expense, or move-in housing allowances) exceed the cost of moving and the excess is not included in your wages on Form W-2, the excess still must be included in gross income on Form 1040, line 7. Vt dept of taxes forms   Use Form 3903 to deduct qualified expenses that exceed your reimbursements and allowances (including dislocation, temporary lodging, temporary lodging expense, or move-in housing allowances that are excluded from gross income). Vt dept of taxes forms   If you must relocate and your spouse and dependents move to or from a different location, do not include in income reimbursements, allowances, or the value of moving and storage services provided by the government to move you and your spouse and dependents to and from the separate locations. Vt dept of taxes forms   Do not deduct any expenses for moving services that were provided by the government. Vt dept of taxes forms Also, do not deduct any expenses that were reimbursed by an allowance you did not include in income. Vt dept of taxes forms Deductible Moving Expenses If you move because of a permanent change of station, you can deduct the reasonable unreimbursed expenses of moving you and members of your household. Vt dept of taxes forms You can deduct expenses (if not reimbursed or furnished in kind) for: Moving household goods and personal effects, and Travel. Vt dept of taxes forms Moving household goods and personal effects. Vt dept of taxes forms   You can deduct the expenses of moving your household goods and personal effects, including expenses for hauling a trailer, packing, crating, in-transit storage, and insurance. Vt dept of taxes forms You cannot deduct expenses for moving furniture or other goods you bought on the way from your old home to your new home. Vt dept of taxes forms Storing and insuring household goods and personal effects. Vt dept of taxes forms   You can include only the cost of storing and insuring your household goods and personal effects within any period of 30 consecutive days after the day these goods and effects are moved from your former home and before they are delivered to your new home. Vt dept of taxes forms Travel. Vt dept of taxes forms   You can deduct the expenses of traveling (including lodging but not meals) from your old home to your new home, including car expenses and air fare.

Vt dept of taxes forms You cannot deduct the cost of unnecessary side trips or lavish and extravagant lodging. Vt dept of taxes forms Member of your household. Vt dept of taxes forms   A member of your household is anyone who has both your former home and your new home as his or her main home. Vt dept of taxes forms It does not include a tenant or employee unless you can claim that person as a dependent. Vt dept of taxes forms Foreign Moves A foreign move is a move from the United States or its possessions to a foreign country or from one foreign country to another foreign country. Vt dept of taxes forms A move from a foreign country to the United States or its possessions is not a foreign move. Vt dept of taxes forms For a foreign move, the deductible moving expenses described earlier are expanded to include the reasonable expenses of: Moving your household goods and personal effects to and from storage, and Storing these items for part or all of the time the new job location remains your main job location. Vt dept of taxes forms The new job location must be outside the United States. Vt dept of taxes forms Reporting Moving Expenses Figure moving expense deductions on Form 3903.

Vt dept of taxes forms Combat Zone Exclusion If you are a member of the U. Vt dept of taxes forms S. Vt dept of taxes forms Armed Forces who serves in a combat zone (defined later), you can exclude certain pay from your income. Vt dept of taxes forms This pay is generally referred to as “combat pay.

Vt dept of taxes forms (See Form W-2 , later. Vt dept of taxes forms ) The month for which you receive the pay must be a month in which you either served in a combat zone or were hospitalized as a result of wounds, disease, or injury incurred while serving in the combat zone.

Vt dept of taxes forms Pay received for duties as a member of the Armed Forces in clubs, messes, post and station theaters, and other nonappropriated fund activities. Vt dept of taxes forms The pay must be earned in a month you served in a combat zone. Vt dept of taxes forms Awards for suggestions, inventions, or scientific achievements you are entitled to because of a submission you made in a month you served in a combat zone. Vt dept of taxes forms Student loan repayments. Vt dept of taxes forms If the entire year of service required to earn the repayment was performed in a combat zone, the entire repayment made because of that year of service is excluded. Vt dept of taxes forms If only part of that year of service was performed in a combat zone, only part of the repayment qualifies for exclusion. Vt dept of taxes forms For example, if you served in a combat zone for 5 months, 5/12 of your repayment qualifies for exclusion. Vt dept of taxes forms Retirement pay and pensions do not qualify for the combat zone exclusion. Vt dept of taxes forms Partial (month) service. Vt dept of taxes forms   If you serve in a combat zone for any part of one or more days during a particular month, you are entitled to an exclusion for that entire month. Vt dept of taxes forms Form W-2. Vt dept of taxes forms   The wages shown in box 1 of your 2013 Form W-2 should not include military pay excluded from your income under the combat zone exclusion provisions. Vt dept of taxes forms If it does, you will need to get a corrected Form W-2 from your finance office. Vt dept of taxes forms   You cannot exclude as combat pay any wages shown in box 1 of Form W-2. Vt dept of taxes forms Combat Zone A combat zone is any area the President of the United States designates by Executive Order as an area in which the U. Vt dept of taxes forms S. Vt dept of taxes forms Armed Forces are engaging or have engaged in combat. Vt dept of taxes forms An area usually becomes a combat zone and ceases to be a combat zone on the dates the President designates by Executive Order. Vt dept of taxes forms Afghanistan area. Vt dept of taxes forms   By Executive Order No. Vt dept of taxes forms 13239, Afghanistan (and airspace above) was designated as a combat zone beginning September 19, 2001. Vt dept of taxes forms On December 14, 2001, the following countries were certified by the Department of Defense for combat zone tax benefits due to their direct support of military operations in the Afghanistan combat zone. Vt dept of taxes forms Djibouti. Vt dept of taxes forms Jordan. Vt dept of taxes forms Kyrgyzstan. Vt dept of taxes forms Pakistan. Vt dept of taxes forms Somalia. Vt dept of taxes forms Syria. Vt dept of taxes forms Tajikistan. Vt dept of taxes forms Uzbekistan. Vt dept of taxes forms Yemen. Vt dept of taxes forms The Philippines. Vt dept of taxes forms  Note. Vt dept of taxes forms For the Philippines only, the personnel must be deployed in conjunction with Operation Enduring Freedom supporting military operations in the Afghanistan combat zone. Vt dept of taxes forms The Kosovo area. Vt dept of taxes forms   By Executive Order No. Vt dept of taxes forms 13119, the following locations (including airspace above) were designated as a combat zone beginning March 24, 1999. Vt dept of taxes forms Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbia/Montenegro). Vt dept of taxes forms Albania. Vt dept of taxes forms Kosovo. Vt dept of taxes forms The Adriatic Sea. Vt dept of taxes forms The Ionian Sea—north of the 39th parallel. Vt dept of taxes forms Note. Vt dept of taxes forms The combat zone designation for Montenegro and Kosovo (previously a province within Serbia) under Executive Order 13119 remains in force even though Montenegro and Kosovo became independent nations since EO 13119 was signed. Vt dept of taxes forms Arabian peninsula. Vt dept of taxes forms   By Executive Order No. Vt dept of taxes forms 12744, the following locations (and airspace above) were designated as a combat zone beginning January 17, 1991. Vt dept of taxes forms The Persian Gulf. Vt dept of taxes forms The Red Sea. Vt dept of taxes forms The Gulf of Oman. Vt dept of taxes forms The part of the Arabian Sea that is north of 10 degrees north latitude and west of 68 degrees east longitude. Vt dept of taxes forms The Gulf of Aden. Vt dept of taxes forms The total land areas of Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Bahrain, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates. Vt dept of taxes forms Jordan which is in direct support of the Arabian Peninsula. Vt dept of taxes forms Serving in a Combat Zone You are considered to be serving in a combat zone if you are either assigned on official temporary duty to a combat zone or you qualify for hostile fire/imminent danger pay while in a combat zone. Vt dept of taxes forms Service in a combat zone includes any periods you are absent from duty because of sickness, wounds, or leave. Vt dept of taxes forms If, as a result of serving in a combat zone, a person becomes a prisoner of war or is missing in action, that person is considered to be serving in the combat zone so long as he or she keeps that status for military pay purposes. Vt dept of taxes forms Hospitalized While Serving in a Combat Zone If you are hospitalized while serving in a combat zone, the wound, disease, or injury causing the hospitalization will be presumed to have been incurred while serving in the combat zone unless there is clear evidence to the contrary. Vt dept of taxes forms Example. Vt dept of taxes forms You are hospitalized for a specific disease in a combat zone where you have been serving for 3 weeks, and the disease for which you are hospitalized has an incubation period of 2 to 4 weeks. Vt dept of taxes forms The disease is presumed to have been incurred while you were serving in the combat zone. Vt dept of taxes forms On the other hand, if the incubation period of the disease is 1 year, the disease would not have been incurred while you were serving in the combat zone. Vt dept of taxes forms Hospitalized After Leaving a Combat Zone In some cases, the wound, disease, or injury may have been incurred while you were serving in the combat zone, even though you were not hospitalized until after you left. Vt dept of taxes forms In that case, you can exclude military pay earned while you are hospitalized as a result of the wound, disease, or injury. Vt dept of taxes forms Example. Vt dept of taxes forms You were hospitalized for a specific disease 3 weeks after you left the combat zone. Vt dept of taxes forms The incubation period of the disease is from 2 to 4 weeks. Vt dept of taxes forms The disease is presumed to have been incurred while serving in the combat zone. Vt dept of taxes forms Nonqualifying Presence in Combat Zone None of the following types of military service qualify as service in a combat zone. Vt dept of taxes forms Presence in a combat zone while on leave from a duty station located outside the combat zone. Vt dept of taxes forms Passage over or through a combat zone during a trip between two points that are outside a combat zone. Vt dept of taxes forms Presence in a combat zone solely for your personal convenience. Vt dept of taxes forms Service Outside Combat Zone Considered Service in Combat Zone Military service outside a combat zone is considered to be performed in a combat zone if: The Department of Defense designates that the service is in direct support of military operations in the combat zone, and The service qualifies you for special military pay for duty subject to hostile fire or imminent danger. Vt dept of taxes forms Military pay received for this service will qualify for the combat zone exclusion if all of the requirements (other than service in a combat zone) are met and the pay is verifiable by reference to military pay records. Vt dept of taxes forms Amount of Exclusion If you are an enlisted member, warrant officer, or commissioned warrant officer and you serve in a combat zone during any part of a month, you can exclude all of your military pay for that month. Vt dept of taxes forms It should not be included in the wages reported on your Form W-2. Vt dept of taxes forms You also can exclude military pay earned while you are hospitalized as a result of wounds, disease, or injury incurred in the combat zone. Vt dept of taxes forms If you are hospitalized, you cannot exclude any military pay received for any month of service that begins more than 2 years after the end of combat activities in the combat zone. Vt dept of taxes forms Your hospitalization does not have to be in the combat zone. Vt dept of taxes forms If you are a commissioned officer (other than a commissioned warrant officer), you can exclude your pay according to the rules just discussed. Vt dept of taxes forms However, the amount of your exclusion is limited to the highest rate of enlisted pay (plus imminent danger/hostile fire pay you received) for each month during any part of which you served in a combat zone or were hospitalized as a result of your service there. Vt dept of taxes forms Alien Status For tax purposes, an alien is an individual who is not a U. Vt dept of taxes forms S. Vt dept of taxes forms citizen. Vt dept of taxes forms An alien is in one of three categories: resident, nonresident, or dual-status. Vt dept of taxes forms Placement in the correct category is crucial in determining what income to report and what forms to file. Vt dept of taxes forms Under peacetime enlistment rules, you generally cannot enlist in the Armed Forces unless you are a citizen or have been legally admitted to the United States for permanent residence. Vt dept of taxes forms If you are an alien enlistee in the Armed Forces, you are probably a resident alien. Vt dept of taxes forms If, under an income tax treaty, you are considered a resident of a foreign country, see your base legal officer. Vt dept of taxes forms Other aliens who are in the United States only because of military assignments and who have a home outside the United States are nonresident aliens. Vt dept of taxes forms Guam and Puerto Rico have special rules. Vt dept of taxes forms Residents of those areas should contact their taxing authority with their questions. Vt dept of taxes forms Most members of the Armed Forces are U. Vt dept of taxes forms S. Vt dept of taxes forms citizens or resident aliens. Vt dept of taxes forms However, if you have questions about your alien status or the alien status of your dependents or spouse, you should read the information in the following paragraphs and see Publication 519. Vt dept of taxes forms Resident Aliens You are considered a resident alien of the United States for tax purposes if you meet either the “green card test” or the “substantial presence test” for the calendar year (January 1–December 31). Vt dept of taxes forms If you meet the substantial presence test for 2014, you did not meet either the green card test or the substantial presence test for 2012 or 2013, and you did not choose to be treated as a resident for part of 2012, you may be able to choose to be treated as a U. Vt dept of taxes forms S. Vt dept of taxes forms resident for part of 2013. Vt dept of taxes forms See First-Year Choice in Publication 519. Vt dept of taxes forms These tests are explained in Publication 519. Vt dept of taxes forms Generally, resident aliens are taxed on their worldwide income and file the same tax forms as U. Vt dept of taxes forms S. Vt dept of taxes forms citizens. Vt dept of taxes forms Treating nonresident alien spouse as resident alien. Vt dept of taxes forms   A nonresident alien spouse can be treated as a resident alien if all the following conditions are met. Vt dept of taxes forms One spouse is a U. Vt dept of taxes forms S. Vt dept of taxes forms citizen or resident alien at the end of the tax year. Vt dept of taxes forms That spouse is married to the nonresident alien at the end of the tax year. Vt dept of taxes forms You both choose to treat the nonresident alien spouse as a resident alien. Vt dept of taxes forms Making the choice. Vt dept of taxes forms   Both you and your spouse must sign a statement and attach it to your joint return for the first tax year for which the choice applies. Vt dept of taxes forms Include in the statement: A declaration that one spouse was a nonresident alien and the other was a U. Vt dept of taxes forms S. Vt dept of taxes forms citizen or resident alien on the last day of the year, A declaration that both spouses choose to be treated as U. Vt dept of taxes forms S. Vt dept of taxes forms residents for the entire tax year, and The name, address, and taxpayer identification number (social security number or individual taxpayer identification number) of each spouse. Vt dept of taxes forms If the nonresident alien spouse is not eligible to get a social security number, he or she should file Form W-7, Application for IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number. Vt dept of taxes forms    Once you make this choice, the nonresident alien spouse's worldwide income is subject to U. Vt dept of taxes forms S. Vt dept of taxes forms tax. Vt dept of taxes forms If the nonresident alien spouse has substantial foreign income, there may be no advantage to making this choice. Vt dept of taxes forms Ending the choice. Vt dept of taxes forms   Once you make this choice, it applies to all later years unless one of the following situations occurs. Vt dept of taxes forms You or your spouse revokes the choice. Vt dept of taxes forms You or your spouse dies. Vt dept of taxes forms You and your spouse become legally separated under a decree of divorce or separate maintenance. Vt dept of taxes forms The Internal Revenue Service ends the choice because you or your spouse kept inadequate records. Vt dept of taxes forms For specific details on these situations, see Publication 519. Vt dept of taxes forms   If the choice is ended for any of these reasons, neither spouse can make the choice for any later year. Vt dept of taxes forms Choice not made. Vt dept of taxes forms   If you and your nonresident alien spouse do not make this choice: You cannot file a joint return. Vt dept of taxes forms You can file as married filing separately, or head of household if you qualify. Vt dept of taxes forms You can claim an exemption for your nonresident alien spouse if he or she has no gross income for U. Vt dept of taxes forms S. Vt dept of taxes forms tax purposes and is not another taxpayer's dependent. Vt dept of taxes forms The nonresident alien spouse generally does not have to file a federal income tax return if he or she had no income from sources in the United States. Vt dept of taxes forms If a return has to be filed, see the next discussion. Vt dept of taxes forms The nonresident alien spouse is not eligible for the earned income credit if he or she has to file a return. Vt dept of taxes forms Nonresident Aliens If you are an alien who does not meet the requirements discussed earlier to be a resident alien, you are a nonresident alien. Vt dept of taxes forms If you are required to file a federal tax return, you must file either Form 1040NR, U. Vt dept of taxes forms S. Vt dept of taxes forms Nonresident Alien Income Tax Return, or Form 1040NR-EZ, U. Vt dept of taxes forms S. Vt dept of taxes forms Income Tax Return for Certain Nonresident Aliens With No Dependents. Vt dept of taxes forms See the form instructions for information on who must file and filing status. Vt dept of taxes forms If you are a nonresident alien, you generally must pay tax on income from sources in the United States. Vt dept of taxes forms Your income from conducting a trade or business in the United States is taxed at graduated U. Vt dept of taxes forms S. Vt dept of taxes forms tax rates. Vt dept of taxes forms Other income from U. Vt dept of taxes forms S. Vt dept of taxes forms sources is taxed at a flat 30% (or lower treaty) rate. Vt dept of taxes forms For example, dividends from a U. Vt dept of taxes forms S. Vt dept of taxes forms corporation paid to a nonresident alien generally are subject to a 30% (or lower treaty) rate. Vt dept of taxes forms Dual-Status Aliens You can be both a nonresident and resident alien during the same tax year. Vt dept of taxes forms This usually occurs in the year you arrive in or depart from the United States. Vt dept of taxes forms If you are a dual-status alien, you are taxed on income from all sources for the part of the year you are a resident alien. Vt dept of taxes forms Generally, for the part of the year you are a nonresident alien, you are taxed only on income from sources in the United States. Vt dept of taxes forms Sale of Home You may not have to pay tax on all or part of the gain from the sale of your main home. Vt dept of taxes forms Usually, your main home is the one you live in most of the time. Vt dept of taxes forms It can be a: House, Houseboat, Mobile home, Cooperative apartment, or Condominium. Vt dept of taxes forms You generally can exclude up to $250,000 of gain ($500,000, in most cases, if married filing a joint return) realized on the sale or exchange of a main home in 2013. Vt dept of taxes forms The exclusion is allowed each time you sell or exchange a main home, but generally not more than once every 2 years. Vt dept of taxes forms To be eligible, during the 5-year period ending on the date of the sale, you must have owned the home for at least 2 years (the ownership test), and lived in the home as your main home for at least 2 years (the use test). Vt dept of taxes forms Exception to ownership and use tests. Vt dept of taxes forms   You can exclude gain, but the maximum amount of gain you can exclude will be reduced if you do not meet the ownership and use tests due to a move to a new permanent duty station. Vt dept of taxes forms 5-year test period suspended. Vt dept of taxes forms   You can choose to have the 5-year test period for ownership and use suspended during any period you or your spouse serve on qualified official extended duty as a member of the Armed Forces. Vt dept of taxes forms This means that you may be able to meet the 2-year use test even if, because of your service, you did not actually live in your home for at least the required 2 years during the 5-year period ending on the date of sale. Vt dept of taxes forms Example. Vt dept of taxes forms David bought and moved into a home in 2005. Vt dept of taxes forms He lived in it as his main home for 2½ years. Vt dept of taxes forms For the next 6 years, he did not live in it because he was on qualified official extended duty with the Army. Vt dept of taxes forms He then sold the home at a gain in 2013. Vt dept of taxes forms To meet the use test, David chooses to suspend the 5-year test period for the 6 years he was on qualifying official extended duty. Vt dept of taxes forms This means he can disregard those 6 years. Vt dept of taxes forms Therefore, David's 5-year test period consists of the 5 years before he went on qualifying official extended duty. Vt dept of taxes forms He meets the ownership and use tests because he owned and lived in the home for 2½ years during this test period. Vt dept of taxes forms Period of suspension. Vt dept of taxes forms   The period of suspension cannot last more than 10 years. Vt dept of taxes forms You cannot suspend the 5-year period for more than one property at a time. Vt dept of taxes forms You can revoke your choice to suspend the 5-year period at any time. Vt dept of taxes forms Qualified official extended duty. Vt dept of taxes forms   You are on qualified official extended duty if you serve on extended duty either: At a duty station at least 50 miles from your main home, or While you live in Government quarters under Government orders. Vt dept of taxes forms   You are on extended duty when you are called or ordered to active duty for a period of more than 90 days or for an indefinite period. Vt dept of taxes forms Property used for rental or business. Vt dept of taxes forms   You may be able to exclude your gain from the sale of a home that you have used as a rental property or for business. Vt dept of taxes forms However, you must meet the ownership and use tests discussed in Publication 523. Vt dept of taxes forms Nonqualified use. Vt dept of taxes forms   If the sale of your main home results in a gain that is allocated to one or more period(s) of nonqualified use, you cannot exclude that gain from your income. Vt dept of taxes forms   Nonqualified use means any period after 2008 when neither you nor your spouse (or your former spouse) used the property as a main home, with certain exceptions. Vt dept of taxes forms For example, a period of nonqualified use does not include any period (not to exceed a total of 10 years) during which you or your spouse is serving on qualified official extended duty. Vt dept of taxes forms Loss. Vt dept of taxes forms   You cannot deduct a loss from the sale of your main home. Vt dept of taxes forms More information. Vt dept of taxes forms   For more information, see Publication 523. Vt dept of taxes forms Foreclosures There may be tax consequences as a result of compensation payments for foreclosures. Vt dept of taxes forms Payments made for violations of the Service Members Civil Relief Act (SCRA). Vt dept of taxes forms   All service members who received a settlement payment reported on a Form 1099 may need to report the amount on their tax return. Vt dept of taxes forms Generally, you must include settlement payments in income. Vt dept of taxes forms However, the tax treatment of settlement payments will depend on the facts and circumstances. Vt dept of taxes forms Lump Sum Portion of Settlement Payment. Vt dept of taxes forms    Generally, you must include the lump sum payment in gross income. Vt dept of taxes forms In limited circumstances you may be able to exclude part or all of the lump sum payment from gross income. Vt dept of taxes forms For example, you may qualify to exclude part or all of the payment from gross income if you can show that the payment was made to reimburse specific nondeductible expenses (such as living expenses) you incurred because of the SCRA violation. Vt dept of taxes forms Interest Payment on Lump Sum Portion of Settlement Payment. Vt dept of taxes forms    You must include any interest on the lump sum portion of your settlement payment in your income. Vt dept of taxes forms Lost Equity Portion of Settlement Payment. Vt dept of taxes forms    If you lost your main home in foreclosure, you should treat the lost equity payment as an additional amount you received on the foreclosure of the home. Vt dept of taxes forms You will have a gain on the foreclosure only if the sum of the lost equity payment and the value of the main home at foreclosure is more than what you paid for the home. Vt dept of taxes forms In many cases, this gain may be excluded from income. Vt dept of taxes forms For more information on the rules for excluding all or part of any gain from the sale (including a foreclosure) of a main home, see Pub. Vt dept of taxes forms 523, Selling Your Home. Vt dept of taxes forms The rules that apply to a lost equity payment you received for the foreclosure of a property that was not your main home are different. Vt dept of taxes forms    To find rules for reporting gain or loss on the foreclosure of property that was not your main home, see Pub. Vt dept of taxes forms 544, Sales and Other Dispositions of Assets. Vt dept of taxes forms Interest Payment on Lost Equity Portion of Settlement Payment. Vt dept of taxes forms    You must include any interest on the lost equity portion of your settlement payment in your income. Vt dept of taxes forms Itemized Deductions To figure your taxable income, you must subtract either your standard deduction or your itemized deductions from adjusted gross income. Vt dept of taxes forms For information on the standard deduction, see Publication 501. Vt dept of taxes forms Itemized deductions are figured on Schedule A (Form 1040). Vt dept of taxes forms This chapter discusses miscellaneous itemized deductions of particular interest to members of the Armed Forces. Vt dept of taxes forms For information on other itemized deductions, see the publications listed below. Vt dept of taxes forms Publication 502, Medical and Dental Expenses. Vt dept of taxes forms Publication 526, Charitable Contributions. Vt dept of taxes forms Publication 547, Casualties, Disasters, and Thefts. Vt dept of taxes forms Publication 550, Investment Income and Expenses. Vt dept of taxes forms You must reduce the total of most miscellaneous itemized deductions by 2% of your adjusted gross income. Vt dept of taxes forms For information on deductions that are not subject to the 2% limit, see Publication 529. Vt dept of taxes forms Employee Business Expenses Deductible employee business expenses generally are miscellaneous itemized deductions subject to the 2% limit. Vt dept of taxes forms Certain employee business expenses are deductible as adjustments to income. Vt dept of taxes forms For information on many employee business expenses, see Publication 463. Vt dept of taxes forms Generally, you must file Form 2106, Employee Business Expenses, or Form 2106-EZ, Unreimbursed Employee Business Expenses, to claim these expenses. Vt dept of taxes forms You do not have to file Form 2106 or Form 2106-EZ if you are claiming only unreimbursed expenses for uniforms, professional society dues, and work-related educational expenses (all discussed later). Vt dept of taxes forms You can deduct these expenses directly on Schedule A (Form 1040). Vt dept of taxes forms Reimbursement. Vt dept of taxes forms   Generally, to receive advances, reimbursements, or other allowances from the government, you must adequately account for your expenses and return any excess reimbursement. Vt dept of taxes forms Your reimbursed expenses are not deductible. Vt dept of taxes forms   If your expenses are more than your reimbursement, the excess expenses are deductible (subject to the 2% limit) if you can prove them. Vt dept of taxes forms You must file Form 2106 to report these expenses. Vt dept of taxes forms   You can use the shorter Form 2106-EZ if you meet all three of the following conditions. Vt dept of taxes forms You are an employee deducting expenses related to your job. Vt dept of taxes forms You were not reimbursed by your employer for your expenses. Vt dept of taxes forms (Amounts included in box 1 of Form W-2 are not considered reimbursements. Vt dept of taxes forms ) If you claim car expenses, you use the standard mileage rate. Vt dept of taxes forms    For 2013, the standard mileage rate is 56. Vt dept of taxes forms 5 cents a mile for all business miles driven. Vt dept of taxes forms This rate is adjusted periodically. Vt dept of taxes forms Travel Expenses You can deduct unreimbursed travel expenses only if they are incurred while you are traveling away from home. Vt dept of taxes forms If you are a member of the U. Vt dept of taxes forms S. Vt dept of taxes forms Armed Forces on a permanent duty assignment overseas, you are not traveling away from home. Vt dept of taxes forms You cannot deduct your expenses for meals and lodging while at your permanent duty station. Vt dept of taxes forms You cannot deduct these expenses even if you have to maintain a home in the United States for your family members who are not allowed to accompany you overseas. Vt dept of taxes forms A naval officer assigned to permanent duty aboard a ship that has regular eating and living facilities has a home aboard ship for travel expense purposes. Vt dept of taxes forms To be deductible, your travel expenses must be work related. Vt dept of taxes forms You cannot deduct any expenses for personal travel, such as visits to family while on furlough, leave, or liberty. Vt dept of taxes forms Away from home. Vt dept of taxes forms   Home is your permanent duty station (which can be a ship or base), regardless of where you or your family live. Vt dept of taxes forms You are away from home if you are away from your permanent duty station substantially longer than an ordinary day's work and you need to get sleep or rest to meet the demands of your work while away from home. Vt dept of taxes forms   Examples of deductible travel expenses include: Expenses for business-related meals (generally limited to 50% of your unreimbursed cost), lodging, taxicabs, business telephone calls, tips, laundry, and dry cleaning while you are away from home on temporary duty or temporary additional duty, and Expenses of carrying out official business while on “No Cost” orders. Vt dept of taxes forms    You cannot deduct any expenses for travel away from home if the temporary assignment in a single location is realistically expected to last (and does in fact last) for more than 1 year. Vt dept of taxes forms This rule may not apply if you are participating in a federal crime investigation or prosecution. Vt dept of taxes forms For more information, see Publication 463 and the Form 2106 instructions. Vt dept of taxes forms Transportation Expenses These expenses include the ordinary and necessary costs of: Getting from one workplace to another when you are not away from home, Going to a business meeting away from your regular workplace, and Getting from your home to a temporary workplace when you have a regular place of work. Vt dept of taxes forms These expenses include the costs of transportation by air, bus, rail, taxi, and driving and maintaining your car. Vt dept of taxes forms Transportation expenses incurred while traveling away from home are included with your travel expenses, discussed earlier. Vt dept of taxes forms However, if you use your car while traveling away from home overnight, see the rules in chapter 4 of Publication 463 to figure your car expense deduction. Vt dept of taxes forms If you must go from one workplace to another while on duty (for example, as a courier or to attend meetings) without being away from home, your unreimbursed transportation expenses are deductible. Vt dept of taxes forms However, the expenses of getting to and from your regular place of work (commuting) are not deductible. Vt dept of taxes forms Temporary work location. Vt dept of taxes forms   If you have one or more regular places of business away from your home and you commute to a temporary work location in the same trade or business, you can deduct the expenses of the daily round-trip transportation between your home and the temporary location. Vt dept of taxes forms   Generally, if your employment at a work location is realistically expected to last (and does in fact last) for 1 year or less, the employment is temporary. Vt dept of taxes forms   If your employment at a work location is realistically expected to last for more than 1 year or if there is no realistic expectation that the employment will last for 1 year or less, the employment is not temporary, regardless of whether it actually lasts for more than 1 year. Vt dept of taxes forms If employment at a work location initially is realistically expected to last for 1 year or less, but at some later date the employment is realistically expected to last more than 1 year, that employment will be treated as temporary (unless there are facts and circumstances that would indicate otherwise) until your expectation changes. Vt dept of taxes forms    If you do not have a regular place of business, but you ordinarily work in the metropolitan area where you live, you can deduct daily transportation expenses between your home and a temporary work site outside your metropolitan area. Vt dept of taxes forms However, you cannot deduct daily transportation costs between your home and temporary work sites within your metropolitan area. Vt dept of taxes forms These are nondeductible commuting costs. Vt dept of taxes forms Armed Forces reservists. Vt dept of taxes forms   A meeting of an Armed Forces reserve unit is a second place of business if the meeting is held on a day on which you work at your regular job. Vt dept of taxes forms You can deduct the expense of getting from one workplace to the other. Vt dept of taxes forms You usually cannot deduct the expense if the reserve meeting is held on a day on which you do not work at your regular job. Vt dept of taxes forms In this case, your transportation generally is a nondeductible commuting expense. Vt dept of taxes forms However, you can deduct your transportation expenses if the location of the meeting is temporary and you have one or more regular places of work. Vt dept of taxes forms   If you ordinarily work in a particular metropolitan area but not at any specific location and the reserve meeting is held at a temporary location outside that metropolitan area, you can deduct your transportation expenses. Vt dept of taxes forms If you travel away from home overnight to attend a guard or reserve meeting, you can deduct your travel expenses. Vt dept of taxes forms See Armed Forces Reservists under Adjustments to Income, earlier. Vt dept of taxes forms Uniforms You usually cannot deduct the expenses for uniform cost and upkeep. Vt dept of taxes forms Generally, you must wear uniforms when on duty and you are allowed to wear them when off duty. Vt dept of taxes forms If military regulations prohibit you from wearing certain uniforms when off duty, you can deduct the cost and upkeep of the uniforms, but you must reduce your expenses by any allowance or reimbursement you receive. Vt dept of taxes forms Unreimbursed expenses for the cost and upkeep of the following articles are deductible. Vt dept of taxes forms Military battle dress uniforms and utility uniforms that you cannot wear when off duty. Vt dept of taxes forms Articles not replacing regular clothing, including insignia of rank, corps devices, epaulets, aiguillettes, and swords. Vt dept of taxes forms Reservists' uniforms if you can wear the uniform only while performing duties as a reservist. Vt dept of taxes forms Professional Dues You can deduct unreimbursed dues paid to professional societies directly related to your military position. Vt dept of taxes forms However, you cannot deduct amounts paid to an officers' club or a noncommissioned officers' club. Vt dept of taxes forms Example. Vt dept of taxes forms Lieutenant Margaret Allen, an electrical engineer at Maxwell Air Force Base, can deduct professional dues paid to the American Society of Electrical Engineers. Vt dept of taxes forms Educational Expenses You can deduct the unreimbursed costs of qualifying work-related education. Vt dept of taxes forms This is education that meets at least one of the following two tests. Vt dept of taxes forms The education is required by your employer or the law to keep your present salary, status, or job. Vt dept of taxes forms The required education must serve a bona fide business purpose of your employer. Vt dept of taxes forms The education maintains or improves skills needed in your present work. Vt dept of taxes forms However, even if the education meets one or both of the above tests, it is not qualifying education if it: Is needed to meet the minimum educational requirements of your present trade or business, or Is part of a program of study that will qualify you for a new trade or business. Vt dept of taxes forms You can deduct the expenses for qualifying work-related education even if the education could lead to a degree. Vt dept of taxes forms Example 1. Vt dept of taxes forms Lieutenant Colonel Mason has a degree in financial management and is in charge of base finances at her post of duty. Vt dept of taxes forms She took an advanced finance course. Vt dept of taxes forms She already meets the minimum qualifications for her job. Vt dept of taxes forms By taking the course, she is improving skills in her current position. Vt dept of taxes forms The course does not qualify her for a new trade or business.
