 INCOME TAX FILING STATUS

There are two types of income:
Taxable income and non-taxable income

Taxable income is any income that is subject to tax. It must be reported on a tax return, unless the amount is less than the required amount of income to file. Types of taxable income:

  • Wages, salaries, bonuses, and commissions
  • Tips and other compensation for personal services
  • Interest/Dividends (unless tax-exempt)
  • Alimony received or separate maintenance payments received
  • Recoveries of items deducted in prior year(s)
  • Business income
  • Hobby income (a hobby loss is not deductible)
  • Capital gains 
  • Gain from the sale of property 
  • Pensions and annuities (part may be nontaxable)
