1108 Constructive receipt Income is constructively received when it is credited to your account, or unconditionally set apart for you, or otherwise made available so that you could draw upon it at any time. Based on an analysis of your records and accounts, income is adjusted to reflect the income constructively received.
1109 Non-employee Compensation We have adjusted your income to include amounts shown in box 7 on 1099-MISC.
1110 Trade or Business Income from your trade or business should be reported on Schedule C and is subject to Self-Employment Tax. You reported this income on your return as wages. We have adjusted your return accordingly and included the income from your trade or business on the proper schedule.
1111 Deferred Compensation Nonqualified deferred compensation is includible in income when actually or constructively received (provided that such compensation was not required to be included in income in an earlier year under IRC 409A).
1112 Taxable Income It is determined that the following taxable income items were not reported on the filed tax return. An adjustment is made to report these items as income on your tax return. Accordingly, your taxable income is increased in the amounts and for the tax years shown.
1113 Sale of Real Estate Income derived by an individual from the sale of real estate originally purchased as unimproved land and subsequently improved and developed primarily for sale to customers in the ordinary course of trade or business constitutes income from a trade or business. This income should be included in computing net earnings from self employment.
1114 Unsubstantiated SE income - Sch C gross receipts Since the record keeping requirements under IRC 6001 have not been met, and you have not complied with our request for substantiation of your Schedule C gross receipts, we are disallowing the self-employment income claimed on your return. The earned income credit and self-employment taxes have been adjusted accordingly.
1115 Additional documentation - Sch C income and expenses; fillable We have received the information you sent us on ________________. We are unable to change our determination since we need additional documentation to verify your Schedule C income and expenses. Please provide the necessary items needed to substantiate your business income and/or losses. Acceptable verification would be:
Cancelled checks, record keeping books, computer printouts, ledgers, log books, receipts, bill (paid), etc.

_______ Filing Status (changed to either single or married filing separately)
_______ Exemption(s)

_______ Schedule C Expenses

If you have any questions, you may call the number on the enclosed letter.
1116 Sch C partial disallowance We have adjusted your Schedule C gross receipts based on the substantiation you provided for our review. Unsubstantiated income has been removed and in turn will affect your earned income credit as well as your self-employment tax.
1117 Schedule C gross income and SE tax removed Because we determined that the activity described on your Schedule C does not meet the guidelines of carrying on a trade or business within the meaning of IRC 162, we moved your gross income to line 21 of the 1040 (other income) and adjusted your self-employment tax to zero.
1118 Wages moved from Sch C to Line 7 Only statutory employee wages may be reported on Schedule C and offset by expenses. Since your employer did not indicate on W-2 that you are a statutory employee, we disallowed your Schedule C income and expenses and have adjusted your return to include these wages on Line 7 of 1040. If you claimed the standard deduction, you may benefit from itemizing your deductions and reporting your employee business expenses on Line 21 of Schedule A.
1119 Wages moved - expenses allowed on Sch A Only statutory employee wages may be reported on Schedule C and offset by expenses. Since your employer did not indicate on W-2 that you are a statutory employee, we disallowed your Schedule C income and expenses and have adjusted your return to include these wages on Line 7 of 1040 and these expenses on Line 21 of Schedule A as employee business expenses, which are subject to the 2% adjusted gross income limitation.
1120 Statutory employee-separate Schedules C The income earned as a statutory employee should not be combined with other gross receipts on Schedule C. If you earned both gross receipts and income as a statutory employee in the same trade or business, you must file separate Schedules C, and the business expenses should be reported on the appropriate Schedule C.
1121 Tip Income The enclosed reports reflect changes to your tax liabilities based on tip income you received but did not report to your employer or on your income tax return.
- 4549, Income Tax Examination Changes, shows the additional income tax and any applicable penalties due to the addition of the tip income.
- 2504, Agreement to Assessment and Collection of Additional Tax and Acceptance of Overassessment, reflects your share of the FICA (social security and Medicare) tax due on the additional tip income, plus penalties.
- 4137, Social Security and Medicare Tax on Unreported Tip Income, provides details of the computation of the FICA taxes and the corresponding penalty.
- Lead Sheet (Unreported Tip Income) shows how we determined the amount of tip income you received.

If you agree with the adjustments shown on the enclosed reports, please sign the 4549 and 2504 and return them to us in the enclosed envelope.

If you have information about your tip income that is different from the information we received from your employer(s), please send it to us. We will review it and notify you as to our decision.
1122 Sch C net income disregarded We have determined that the activity described in your Schedule C (1) was not engaged in with sufficient regularity and continuity; or (2) was engaged in for the primary purpose of generating tax benefits through the use of the refundable earned income credit. Therefore, we have disregarded your Schedule C and the business net profit reflected thereon for all federal tax purposes.
1123 Schedule C activity/gross income and SE tax removed Because we determined that the activity described on your Schedule C does not meet the guidelines of carrying on a trade or business within the meaning of IRC 162, we removed your gross income and adjusted your self-employment tax to zero.

3218 Gain on sale of residence Because you or your spouse have not owned and used the principal residence for period aggregating 2 years or more during the 5-year period ending on the date of the sale or exchange, the entire gain from the sale or exchange of the principal residence is taxable as computed.
3219 Involuntary conversion/related party After June 8, 1997, you cannot postpone the gains on the involuntary conversion because you acquired replacement property or stock from a related party and your total realized gain for the tax year on the involuntarily converted properties on which there is a realized gain of more than $100,000. Therefore, the gain is includible in income.
3220 Involuntary conversions realized gain You cannot offset the gain with any losses when determining whether the total gain is more than $100,000. Thus the realized gain is recomputed as shown.

Since your loss is not a casualty, it is not deductible.

3320 Theft loss decreased FMV less than cost The deduction shown on your return as a theft loss is decreased because the fair market value of the items stolen was less than their cost, and under IRC 165 a theft is limited to the lesser of cost or fair market value at the time of theft.
3321 Deduction decreased-loss limitation The deduction shown on your return as a casualty loss is decreased because the fair market value of the items destroyed was less than their cost, and under IRC 165 a casualty loss is limited to the lesser of cost or decrease in fair market value.

4113 Relationship violates local law Since the relationship between you and this person is in violation of local law, we disallowed the exemption.
4114 Citizen or resident test not met Since the person is neither a U.S. citizen or national, nor a resident of the United States, Canada, or Mexico, we have disallowed the dependency exemption.
4115 Additional exemption allowed You are allowed an additional exemption for the person(s) listed.
4116 Not established entitled to exemption/disallowed Since you did not establish that you are entitled to the exemption(s) for the person(s) listed, the exemption(s) is/are being disallowed.
4117 Support test not met and no 2120 submitted We have disallowed this exemption because you did not contribute more than one-half of the person's total support, nor did you establish that you were entitled to the exemption under a multiple support agreement.
4118 FRV of claimed dependent's lodging added to support Since the person you claimed as a dependent lived in his/her own home, the fair rental value of his/her lodging must be added to other items of support to arrive at the cost of total support. We have disallowed the exemption because the support you provided is not more than one-half of total support.
4119 TP lived rent-free in dependents/FRV reduces support below 1/2 Since you lived rent-free in the home of the person you claimed as a dependent, the amount you spent for his/her support must be reduced by the fair rental value of your lodging. We have disallowed the exemption because the remaining amount, is not more than one-half of the total cost of support.
4120 Capital expenses-support/nonsupport Capital expenditures, such as the purchase of a car, furniture, and household appliances purchased for personal and family reasons that benefit all members of the household are not considered items of support for tax purposes. Since your remaining contributions are not sufficient to constitute more than one-half of the person's total cost of support, the exemption claimed has been disallowed.
4121 Household expenses must be allocated support test not met Your contribution to the upkeep of a household cannot be considered as entirely for any one person when all persons living in the household benefited from it. We must assume that all persons equally shared the amount you furnished because you did not establish otherwise. Because you have not established that you furnished more than one-half of the cost of the total support of the person you claimed as a dependent, we have disallowed the dependency exemption.
4122 Household expenses offset personal expenses Contributions by a member of a household apply first to the payment of his/her own share of the expenses, and then any excess which cannot be traced to a certain member is considered to apply pro rata to the expenses of all who did not provide their own full support. Under this method of distribution, you did not establish that you furnished more than one-half of the cost of the total support for the person you claimed. We have, therefore, disallowed the exemption.
4123 Student-must meet support test to claim as dependent Even though your child is a student, you must still meet the support test. Any amount spent from your child's own funds, including his/her wages, on such things as clothing, education, medical and dental care, recreation, transportation, entertainment, and similar items, must be added to the total cost of support in determining whether you furnished more than one-half of the support. Since you did not establish that you furnished more than one-half of the cost of total support for your child, we have disallowed the dependency exemption.
4124 Decree specifies can claim but did not provide $600 Although your pre-1985 decree of divorce or separate maintenance specifies you may claim the exemption for your child, we have disallowed it because you provided less than $600 for his/her support.
4125 Dependent of another TP after 1986 You may not claim a personal exemption for any year that you can be claimed as a dependent by another taxpayer.
4126 No personal exemption specified levels after 1987 The benefit of the personal exemption is phased out for individuals whose adjusted gross income is above specified levels. See the enclosed computation.
4127 Total cost of support not established-cannot determine 1/2 To determine whether you contributed more than one-half of the cost of the total support of the person you claimed as a dependents support, it is necessary to know the cost of total support. Since you have been unable to show the cost of total support, we disallowed the exemption.
4128 Tax-free income is support to the extent it is used for support - disallowed as support test not met Payments such as social security benefits, pensions, and State welfare benefit payments received by a person claimed as a dependent are part of that person's support unless it is shown otherwise. These payments are support to the extent that the payments are used for support. Since these payments represent more than one-half of the claimed person's total support, we disallowed the exemption.
4129 Spouse exemption disallowed-no info on income or dependency The exemption claimed for your spouse is disallowed, since you did not establish that your spouse had no gross income and was not the dependent of another taxpayer.
4130 U.S./Japan treaty rule/see computation Under the provision of the United States/Japan Income Tax Treaty, the deduction has been disallowed because it is not permitted under the current treaty.
4131 Spouse filed separate return Since your spouse filed a separate return, you may not claim an exemption for your spouse.
4132 Disallow exemption/claimed by another taxpayer We are disallowing the exemption claimed since another taxpayer has also claimed this dependent on his/her tax return.
4133 Partial exemption disallowed The partial exemption shown on your return has been disallowed because the Internal Revenue Code does not provide for partial exemptions.
4134 Identify exemptions disallowed We disallowed your claim to an exemption for the following persons:
4135 Custody of dependent-Prior to 1/1/2005 The parent having custody for the greater part of the calendar year is entitled to the dependency exemption unless he or she expressly waives the right to claim the exemption. This applies to cases of legal separation, divorce, separation by written agreement, and to cases where the parents live apart during the last 6 months of the calendar year. Since you did not have custody, and the custodial parent did not waive the right to claim the exemption, we disallowed the dependency exemption.
4136 Custody of dependent waived-Prior to 1/1/2005 The parent having custody is entitled to the dependency exemption unless he or she waives the right to claim the exemption. Since you signed a waiver, we disallowed the exemption.

4138 Exemptions limited if income more than dollar amount of FS The amount you can claim for your exemptions is reduced if your adjusted gross income is more than the dollar limit for your filing status. Your adjusted income is more than that limit, so we reduced the amount you can claim. We have attached a Personal Exemption Worksheet to show you how we figured the change.
4139 Limitation on exemptions does not apply-AGI less than FS limit The amount you can claim for your exemptions is reduced if your adjusted gross income is more than the dollar limit for your filing status. Since your adjusted gross income is less than the limit, this reduction does not apply to you, and you can claim more for your exemptions than you did. We increased the amount of your exemptions and attached a Personal Exemption Worksheet to show you how we figured this change.
4140 Not established entitled to exemption/disallowed Since you did not establish that you are entitled to the exemption(s), it/they is/are being disallowed.

4809 Not established required by employer We have disallowed your deduction for office-in-the-home expense because you have not established that it was for the convenience of your employer. Voluntary, occasional, or incidental use of part of your home in connection with your employment does not entitle you to a business deduction for the expenses incurred.
4810 Regular and exclusive test not met Since the part of your home used for business was not used regularly and exclusively for that purpose, we disallowed your deduction for business use of your home.
4811 Gain recognized/computation/General deduction not met/disallowed Employment and business related expenses attributable to the use of a distinct portion of a residence (e.g., den or office) are allowed only if the portion of the residence is exclusively used on a regular basis as the taxpayer's place of business, or as a place of business which is used by patients, clients, or customers. In addition, for an employee, the use must be for the convenience of the employer. Since you have not established that you meet these requirements we disallowed the deduction claimed.

4814 Test for home office In order to qualify for a home office deduction there are certain tests that have to be met. The office area must be used exclusively and regularly for business. Exclusively means you must use the area of your home only for conducting business. If any part of this area is used for personal purposes you have not met the exclusive use test. Regular use means that you use the exclusive business area on a continuing basis. The occasional or incidental business use of an area in your home does not meet the regular use test even if that part of your home is used for no other purpose.

In addition, home office deductions are limited by IRC 280A to the gross income from that business activity reduced by the sum of the percentage of the otherwise deductible mortgage interest, real estate taxes, losses from casualty and theft, and deductions allocable to the business or rental activity but not allocable to the use of the unit itself.

4817 Gross income limitation - IRC 280A The portion of home office expense disallowed because of the gross income limitation under IRC 280A can be carried forward in the same business to subsequent taxable years. The expense that is carried forward to a subsequent taxable year will be subject to the gross income limitation in that year.

4901 Excess loss denied Passive losses and credits can be offset by passive income (or in the case of credits, to the tax attributable to net passive income). Passive losses are also allowed to the extent they qualify for the special allowance for rental real estate activities. They cannot be used to offset portfolio income. Since your losses from such activities were in excess of the passive income and the special allowance, the excess loss has been denied. You may carry forward the amount of the loss you were unable to claim.
4902 Passive activity defined Passive losses can only be offset against passive income. A passive activity is one involving the conduct of a trade or business in which you do not materially participate, or any rental activity unless the requirements of IRC 469(c)(7) are met in tax years beginning after December 31, 1993.
4903 Rental activity/IRC 469(c)(7) Rental activities of any kind, regardless of material participation, are considered passive activities unless the requirements of IRC 469(c)(7) are met in tax years beginning after December 31, 1993.

4906 Mortgage interest expense/IRC 469(j)(7) Under IRC 469(j)(7), Passive Activity Loss of a taxpayer shall be computed without regard to qualified residence interest. The mortgage interest expense that you incurred on your qualified residence is to be deducted on Schedule A as an itemized deduction, and not on Schedule E.
4907 Passive Activity Loss Carryover We have adjusted your passive activity loss as shown. This may affect your loss available for carryover to subsequent years. See the enclosed 8582 , Passive Activity Loss Limitations, and Pub 925, Passive Activity and At-Risk Rules, containing information and examples for reporting losses from passive activities.

5010 Passive activity loss limited Because the loss you deducted was determined to result from a passive activity, your loss is limited to the amount of income from all passive activities. The amount disallowed because of this may be carried forward to reduce passive activity income generated in future years.
5011 Non passive income limit - $25,000 Active participants in rental activities are allowed to offset up to $25,000 ($12,500 if married filing separate) of nonpassive income with the net losses from all rental activities, subject to phase-out. Because your net loss from these activities was under the limitation, your expenses have been allowed as verified.
5012 Net operating losses You did not have enough nonpassive income (within the limitation) to absorb the net losses from the rental activities in which you actively participated. Your otherwise allowable losses are therefore treated as losses which are not from a passive activity, and are treated as net operating losses which will be carried back and forward in accordance with the rules applicable to net operating losses. See the attached computation.
5013 Deduction for Bed and Breakfast disallowed You did not provide adequate verification to qualify your home as a Bed and Breakfast. Therefore, we have disallowed the deduction.

Since changes made elsewhere in this report affect your Adjusted Gross Income, we have adjusted your deduction for tools.
5308 Cost of tool not over 2% - denied The cost of tools is deductible only as a miscellaneous deduction. Miscellaneous deductions are subject to the 2 percent of adjusted gross income limitation.

If you file separately, the maximum allowable deduction is $0.
5718 Tax on earnings deferred Even though you are not eligible to deduct all or part of your contribution to an Individual Retirement Arrangement (IRA), tax on the earnings is deferred until withdrawn.
5719 Required distribution-cannot roll over If the distribution from your Individual Retirement Arrangement (IRA) was required under the minimum distribution rules (age 70 1/2), this distribution cannot be rolled over to another IRA. We have adjusted your income to include this amount.

5721 Premature distribution/Qualified retirement plan Your gross income has been increased to include the amount you received as payment from your qualified retirement plan.

5804 Activity not for profit/Profit motive If you raise crops or livestock mainly for the use of your family, but derive some income from incidental sales, you will not be considered as operating a farm for profit; therefore, you may not deduct expenses of carrying on the business of farming.
5805 Contested Liability-not paid Under the cash basis method of accounting, a contested liability may be deducted only in the year the liability is paid. Since you did not pay the liability in the current year, your deduction is denied.

6001 Depletion-Cost-general Under the cost method of depletion, each unit of production sold is assigned a part of the cost or other basis of the interest. This is determined by dividing the cost or other basis by the total units expected to be recovered. We refigured your depletion accordingly.
6002 Depletion-% depletion-general Under the percentage or statutory method of figuring depletion, the law provides a special percentage factor for different types of minerals and other natural resources. This percentage is multiplied by the gross income from the interest to arrive at the depletion allowance. We refigured your depletion allowance accordingly.
6003 Depletion -% depletion-oil and gas limitations Under the percentage depletion method a flat percentage of the gross income from the property is taken as the depletion deduction. For oil and gas wells, the deduction allowed by the IRC 613A is the lesser of
(a) the flat percentage of gross income from the property

6008 Depletion-% depletion-deductible only in yr advance received Advance payments for oil and gas are includible in income in the year received and percentage depletion is allowable only on oil and gas produced in the same year. We adjusted your depletion allowance accordingly.
6009 Intangible drilling costs Since you hold neither a working or an operating interest in any track or parcel of land, either as a fee owner or under a lease or contract granting operating rights, you may not charge intangible drilling and development of oil and gas properties to expense.
6010 Timber Special rules apply to recognition of gain from the sale of timber. A taxpayer may elect to treat the cutting of timber, which is held for sale or use in a trade or business, as a sale or exchange. If the holding period requirements are met, the gain is recognized as IRC 1231 gain and may, therefore, receive capital gain treatment.
6011 Depletion-% depletion-not allowed expenses pay w/o regard to prod. Percentage depletion is not allowable for lease bonuses, advance royalty payments, or other amounts, payable without regard to actual production from an oil, gas, or geothermal property.
6101 Adjusted as shown We have adjusted your net operating loss as shown in the accompanying computations.
6102 Nonbusiness loss-disallowed You did not sustain a net operating loss in the tax year within the meaning of IRC 172 because your loss was attributable solely to nonbusiness expenses. Therefore, there is no net operating loss carryback or carryover, and your deduction claimed is disallowed. Taxable income is increased accordingly.
6103 Period for Carryback/Carryover In general, for tax years beginning after August 5, 1997, the period to which you can carry a net operating loss (NOL) back is 2 tax years. The period to which you can carry an NOL forward is 20 years. Since you have not established that you qualify for an extended carryback period, we refigured your deduction accordingly.
6104 Carryback/Carryover Since you did not elect to forego the carryback period on a loss year return filed on time; or, provided you filed your loss year return timely, on an amended loss year return filed within 6 months of the due date (excluding extensions) of the loss year return, you cannot deduct the amount eligible for carryback in a later year.
6105 Carry-over period expired We disallowed your net operating loss deduction because the carry-over period expired.
6106 Remove a carryback/carryover from computation of current year loss In computing this year's net operating loss, you must remove a net operating loss carryback or carryover from another year. Accordingly, we refigured your net operating loss.
6107 Capital Losses/Gains Capital losses that are more than capital gains cannot be taken into account in the net operating loss computation. Accordingly, we refigured your net operating loss.
6108 Exemptions You cannot take your personal and dependency exemptions into account in your net operating loss computation. Accordingly, we modified your net operating loss.
6109 Interest income Interest income is considered nonbusiness income even though this is the principal source of income. We refigured your net operating loss accordingly.
6110 Dividend income/Income Averaging Dividend income is considered nonbusiness income even though this is the principal source of income. We refigured your net operating loss accordingly.
6111 Salary Your salary from outside employment must be used to reduce the loss from your business and cannot be offset by nonbusiness deductions. We refigured your net operating loss accordingly.
6112 Loss in more than 1 year Since you sustained a net operating loss in more than one year, the loss occurring in the earlier year must be deducted from the income of other years before the later loss. Although the net operating loss deduction is the total of all carrybacks and carryovers to the year, the earlier loss must be used first. We refigured your net operating loss deduction accordingly.
6113 Zero bracket amount/Standard Deduction In figuring a Net Operating Loss (NOL), the standard deduction is treated as a nonbusiness deduction that can be used to offset nonbusiness income. We refigured your net operating loss accordingly.
6114 Nonbusiness items You can deduct nonbusiness items such as taxes on a personal residence or medical expenses only to the extent of nonbusiness gross income and the amount by which nonbusiness capital gains are more than non-business capital losses. You cannot include the excess in a net operating loss. Therefore, we refigured your net operating loss.
6115 Retirement Plans Contributions to a retirement plan on behalf of a self-employed owner-employee, to the extent deductible, are considered nonbusiness deductions. We refigured your net operating loss accordingly.
6116 Investment tax credit Since your investment tax credit is limited to your tax for the year, the carryback of your net operating loss reduces the investment credit allowed. The recomputed credit is subject to the provisions of IRC 38(c) and IRC 39(c).
6117 Nonbusiness capital gains/capital losses The amount by which nonbusiness capital losses are more than nonbusiness capital gains cannot be included in the net operating loss deduction.
6118 Excess business capital losses over business capital gains The amount by which business capital losses are more than business capital gains can be included in the net operating loss deduction only if certain conditions are met.
(1) There is a net nonbusiness capital gain; and
(2) That nonbusiness capital gain is more than the excess of nonbusiness ordinary deductions over nonbusiness ordinary income.

The net business capital loss is limited to the amount by which the net nonbusiness capital gain exceeds the excess nonbusiness deductions.
6119 Taxable Income for Carryback year is greater than NOL Since the taxable income for the carryback year is greater than the net operating loss, it fully absorbs the loss and no modifications are required. However, the deductions limited by adjusted gross income are affected (except for contributions).
6120 Charitable contribution Although the deduction for charitable contributions has a ceiling based on adjusted gross income, the allowable deduction is determined without regard to any net operating loss carrybacks.
6121 Minimum tax We refigured your minimum tax because of changes in net operating loss carryover.
6122 Election to forego carryback is irrevocable Your election to forego the carryback period is irrevocable and specifies that you are relinquishing the entire carryback period. You lose any part of the net operating loss that you do not absorb by the end of the carryover period. Therefore, we refigured your net operating loss.
6123 Adjusted Gross income limitation Because your adjusted gross income was reduced, your medical expense deduction increased.
6124 Carryover/carryback year adjusted due to change in loss year Since the net operating loss on which this carryback/carryover is based was disallowed or decreased, the carryback/carryover was disallowed in the amount shown.
6125 Election to apply an extended carryback period to an applicable net operating loss Your election to apply an extended carryback period to an applicable net operating loss is irrevocable and specifies that you will carry the applicable net operating loss to the earliest carryback year first.

6705 Adjusted due to change in your Federal income tax We adjusted your credit for the elderly and the permanently and totally disabled as a result of changes to your Federal income tax.

(1) who is 65 years of age before the close of the tax year, or

Since you did not meet either of these qualifications, we disallowed the credit.
6707 Reduce by benefits received The allowable credit for the elderly or the permanently and totally disabled must be reduced by nontaxable pension, annuity, or disability benefits paid under the Social Security Act, the Railroad Retirement Act of 1974, or a Veterans Administration program, or benefits that are excludable from gross income under any other provision of law not contained in the Internal Revenue Code. We therefore adjusted your credit.

If the tax is erroneously withheld, you should request a refund from the employer who withheld the tax.
6906 T/P subject to FICA Under the Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA), wages paid to an employee for services performed in the United States are subject to FICA (social security and Medicare) tax unless specifically excluded by law. Since your wages are not excludable, the tax was correctly withheld and no refund is due, even though you may not be entitled to social security benefits.

Taxable income is figured without deduction for personal exemptions. In determining taxable income from each sources outside the United States, allocate and apportion deductions that are factually related to that taxable income.
7006 Apportion on time basis/schedule Your foreign tax credit was refigured as shown in the enclosed schedule. The source of compensation as an employee is based on a time basis. In making this allocation, if any amount was paid or furnished in kind to you as an allowance over and above your base salary, it is considered to be part of your total compensation. The source of compensation received if not an employee is based on all the facts and time basis may be appropriate.
7007 Income earned in restricted country You cannot claim a foreign tax credit on income earned in certain restricted foreign countries. Since the credit you are claiming is based on money earned in a restricted country, we have disallowed the credit.

7213 Separate return limitation Since you are married and filed a separate return, your investment credit is limited to $12,500 plus 25 percent of the tax liability of more than $12,500. Any part of the investment credit not allowable because of this limitation is to be carried back 1 year and carried forward 20 years.

(a) is depreciable;

(B) the term of the lease must be less than 50 percent of the useful life of the property and the lessor's share of the first year's normal operating expense must be more than 15 percent of the rental income.

7412 Capital gain sale It is determined that you realized capital gain(s) from the sale of capital assets. The gross sales proceeds are treated as net capital gain because it has not been established that you had a cost basis in the capital assets. Consequently, the gain constitutes gross income realized by you as provided by IRC 61. Accordingly, your taxable income is increased.

7603 No qualifying child Since you do not have a qualifying child, you are not entitled to the earned income credit. Therefore, we have disallowed it.
7604 Higher AGI in household We have disallowed your earned income credit, because your qualifying child is also the qualifying child of someone else whose adjusted gross income is higher than yours. In this situation, only the person with the higher adjusted gross income can claim the credit. This is so, even if that person does not meet all the rules for claiming the credit.

7615 EITC Disallowed/No Response Since you failed to respond to attempts to set an appointment to review your tax return, those items for which documentation and records were requested are being disallowed. One of those items is the Earned Income Credit (EIC).

The law now requires IRS, if it denies your EIC as a result of the deficiency procedures, to also deny the credit for subsequent years unless you provide information that shows your eligibility.

7631 Two year ban Your Earned Income Credit (EIC) has been disallowed because your return is subject to IRC 32(k)(1)(B)(ii) which places a two year prohibition on claiming EIC. This prohibition resulted from a prior examination in which your EIC was disallowed due to reckless or intentional disregard of the EIC rules and regulations.
7632 Ten year ban Your Earned Income Credit (EIC) has been disallowed because your return is subject to IRC 32(k)(1)(B)(i) which places a ten year prohibition on claiming EIC.

7646 Qualifying Child of Another for 2009 and later years Our records indicate that your qualifying child is also the qualifying child of one or more other taxpayers. When a child is the qualifying child of two or more taxpayers, the following tiebreaker rules apply:

If only one of the persons is the child's parent, the child is treated as the qualifying child of the parent.

If the parents do not file a joint return together, but both parents claim the child as the qualifying child, the IRS will treat the child as the qualifying child of the parent with whom the child lived for a longer period of time during the year. If the child lived with each parent for the same amount of time, the IRS will treat the child as the qualifying child of the parent who had the higher adjusted gross income (AGI) for the year.

If no parent can claim the child as a qualifying child, the child is treated as the qualifying child of the person who had the highest AGI for the year.

If a parent can claim the child as a qualifying child, but no parent does so claim the child, the child is treated as the qualifying child of the person who had the highest AGI for the year, but only if that person's AGI is higher than the highest AGI of any of the child's parents.

8001 Definition of AMT - 2000 and prior You have an alternative minimum tax liability only if your tentative minimum tax exceeds your regular tax liability. Tentative minimum tax is computed by first calculating your alternative minimum taxable income, which equals your regular taxable income increased by any tax preference items for the taxable year, and increased or decreased by adjustment items for the taxable year.

Alternative minimum taxable income is then reduced by an exemption amount ($33,750 for Single/Head of Household; $45,000 for Married Filing Joint/Surviving Spouse; and $22,500 for Married Filing Separately), which is subject to phase-out depending on the amount of your alternative minimum taxable income.

8313 Additional deduction for blindness You have been allowed an additional standard deduction amount for blindness.
8314 Required to item ded/disallowed std ded or ZBA You must itemize your deductions even though the total is less than your standard deduction because of your dual status as a nonresident alien for part of the year and a resident or citizen of the United States for the remainder of the year.

8315 Adjusted to correspond with filing status We have adjusted your standard deduction to correspond to your filing status.
8316 Adjusted-reduced itemized deductions-standard ded. allowed Since the adjustments shown in this report reduced your allowable itemized deductions to an amount less than the allowable standard deduction, we disallowed your excess itemized deductions.

8320 Schedule A no longer applicable – Real Estate Taxes allowed per Schedule L for tax year 2009 Since we changed your Schedule A, it is now beneficial for you to use the standard deduction. Since there were entries on line (6, 7 or 20), we have increased the amount of the standard deduction accordingly.

8401 Spouse itemized/you must itemize unused ZBA-add back You must itemize your deductions, even if your itemized deductions total less than your standard deduction or zero bracket amount, if:
(a) You are married filing a separate return and your spouse itemizes deductions; or
(b) You are a nonresident alien or a dual status alien (both a resident and nonresident) during the tax year.
Since you are required to itemize deductions, we have disallowed the standard deduction and have allowed your itemized deductions as shown.
8402 Tax figured using maximum capital gains rate Your tax was calculated using the maximum capital gains rate.
8403 Determining tax by tax table To figure your tax by the Tax Table, you must first determine your taxable income. Your Taxable Income is your adjusted gross income less deductions (itemized or standard) and exemptions.

8411 Rebate due you will be automatic Any additional tax refund due you will be generated automatically by the computer when any proposed balance due in tax is changed.

8413 NR-wrong treaty rate Your tax shown on 1040NR was refigured because you used the wrong treaty rate in the original computation. You may only use the rate called for in the tax treaty that applies. See IRC 894.
8414 Rec'd. lump-sum from qualified retirement plan/qualify for 10-yr avg. Since you have received a lump-sum distribution from a qualified retirement plan which qualified for the special averaging method, we have excluded the distribution from your total income and have added it to 4972 for the proper tax computation.
8415 Deductible allowance for correct number of exemptions Although this item appears as an adjustment, it reflects the deductible allowance for your correct number of exemptions. This item is reflected only for purposes of figuring your tax from the applicable tax rate schedule. If any adjustment was made to the number of exemptions claimed, it is separately stated on the examination report.

8917 NR alien moving expenses to foreign assignment A nonresident alien's expense in moving to a foreign work assignment is not deductible.

If you wish to elect this joint filing status, both you and your spouse must sign the audit report and send the additional tax due, if any, with the signed report.
8919 Definition of domicile Domicile is your place of historical residence and/or fixed and permanent abode. Merely residing in a new location for a period of time does not constitute the establishment of a domicile. Since you have not established that you were domiciled in a community property country or state during the taxable year, community property benefits are not allowed.
8920 Nonresident alien-property transfers The nonrecognition rules regarding property transfers to a spouse do not apply to a spouse who is a nonresident alien.
8921 NR alien/interest not taxable Because you were a nonresident alien during the tax year, the interest you received is not taxable in the U.S.

Therefore, adjustments are made accordingly.
8926 Scholarship or fellowship received by a foreign student/exempt A scholarship or fellowship received by a foreign student or exchange visitors from a foreign government or from certain binational, multinational and international organizations is exempt from tax.

9009 Separate returns-deductions allocated When a husband and wife file separate returns claiming community property benefits, half of the community income and half of the itemized deductions are allocated to each spouse. Therefore, we have disallowed half of the itemized deductions you claimed.
9010 Disallowed benefits/not estab spouse inc subject to community benefits It has not been established that your spouse's income is subject to the law of any jurisdiction that grants one spouse a present vested interest in 50 percent of the other's income from personal services. Therefore, we have disallowed community property benefits.
9011 NR alien and spouse-no joint return election-no comm. laws apply Since you and your nonresident alien spouse did not elect to file a joint return for the tax year, community property laws do not apply to earned income, business income, partnership income, and income from separately owned property.

9204 Surtax exemption/computation Since you are a component member of a controlled group of corporations as described in IRC 1563, and the members did not consent to an apportionment plan as provided in IRC 1561(a), we have apportioned the surtax exemption as provided in IRC 1561(a). Your allowable surtax exemption is shown in the computation of tax.
9205 Surtax exemption/1975 and after Since you are a component member of a controlled group of corporations as described in IRC 1563, only one surtax exemption is allowable. We have apportioned this exemption equally among the group because a consent for unequal allocation was not made under IRC 1561(a), (for years 1975 and after.)
9206 Personal holding company tax Since you are a personal holding company as defined in IRC 542 you are liable for personal holding company tax.
9207 Personal holding company per income Since 60 percent of your adjusted ordinary gross income consisted of dividends, interest, and royalties, you qualify under IRC 542 as a personal holding company.
