When would I have to file returns in more than one state?

If you’re like most taxpayers, you’ll only need to file one state return, usually in your resident state. You might not even have to file a state return at all if you live and work in a state that doesn’t collect income tax .

But if you have income from multiple states, own out-of-state property or business interests that produce income, or your employer withheld taxes for the wrong state, you’ll probably need to file a nonresident state return in addition to your resident state return. More info

And if you moved from one state to another, you’ll likely have to file part-year returns in multiples states for that year. You might even have to file a third nonresident state return if you started working in the other state before you moved or continued working in your former state after the move. More info

TurboTax handles nonresident and part-year returns and will determine which state return(s) you need to file based on the information you provide in the Personal Info section.

The Income Tax department has seized an all-time high value of cash and jewellery, while Rs 3,360 crore unpaid taxes have been surrendered this year as part of its enhanced crackdown against black money holders in the country.

The I-T department had began publishing the names of tax defaulters in leading national dailies last year and has so far named 67 such big defaulters from across the country.

In a bid to keep nation’s tax laws in conformity with changing times, the Income Tax Department has created a permanent mechanism for seeking inputs from its officers for changes required in the direct tax regulations.

Black money holders who have disclosed their ill-gotten assets during July under the ongoing compliance window will receive acknowledgement from the tax department by August 30.

The money has long been withdrawn from their accounts, again without their knowledge, but by then there’re already in for a major trouble.

Tax returns for 2015-16 (assessment year 2016-17) were originally to be filed by July 31. But in view of the day-long strike at public sector banks, the deadline has been extended to August 5.

Tax returns for 2015-16 (assessment year 2016-17) were originally to be filed by 31 July. But in view of the day-long strike at public sector banks, the deadline has been extended to 5 August.

Government has fixed December 31, 2016 as the deadline for companies like Vodafone and Cairn Energy Plc to settle their retrospective tax disputes.

P.M Modi has given the last opportunity to tax defaulters for declaring their undeclared property under tax declaration scheme. Watch this special segment and get to know more here.

The Income Tax Department has detected undisclosed income worth Rs 22,475 crore in over 9,500 surveys conducted over the past two years, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said Friday.

CBDT has directed the Income Tax department to “expeditiously” issue refunds worth Rs 5,000 for last three assessment years in order to provide immediate relief to taxpayers.

The government on Thursday clarified that declarants under domestic black money disclosure scheme can pay interest and penalty in three installments

The government on Thursday clarified that blackmoney declarants using the one-time compliance window cannot pay tax and penalty from undisclosed income to bring down their liability and such acts will not get any immunity.

The Income Tax department on Wednesday conducted multiple searches in over 30 premises of Indiabulls group in connection with alleged tax evasion sending the company’s stocks to crash up to 7 percent.

According to officials, the raid was conducted at several places in Chennai.

Income Tax Department has asked its top officers to closely scrutinise high-value transactions and investments in penny stocks to identify potential black money holders who can avail the four-month compliance window ending September 30 to come clean.

I-T dept has tied up with seven airlines including Air India and Vistara to publise one-time black money compliance window by printing the scheme’s details on the back of boarding passes.

Delhi High Court on Wednesday allowed the income tax department to go ahead with its penalty proceedings against telecom major Vodafone, but asked the agency not to give effect to its final order till the next hearing in July.

The Income Tax department has created a special zone on its official website to showcase country-wide activities being done by it to popularise the one-time black money compliance window that will complete its first month in operation soon.

Income Tax Refund Information

You can get information on the status of your New Jersey income tax refund either online or by phone.

  • Online Inquiry
  • Phone Inquiry: 1-800-323-4400 (toll-free within NJ, NY, PA, DE, and MD) or 609-826-4400 (anywhere). Touch-tone phones only. This service is available 7 days a week (hours may vary). You will need the Social Security Number that was listed first on your return and the amount of the refund requested when you call.

These automated systems can tell you if and when your refund was mailed and when you should receive it. The systems also allow you to begin the procedure to trace a lost refund check. If you filed your resident income tax return electronically (or filed a form that was prepared and printed using approved tax software ) and requested direct deposit for your refund, the systems can tell you the date it was deposited into your bank account. (Note: The Division of Taxation is not responsible for a lost refund if you entered the wrong account information for a direct deposit. You must contact your financial institution for assistance in such cases.)

If you filed a paper return, information on the status of your refund will not be available for at least 12 weeks from the time the return was mailed. Paper returns are not logged in as they are received. Division of Taxation personnel cannot verify receipt of your return until processing has begun, and the return appears in our computer system.

You can also perform an online search to determine if your refund check was returned to the Division of Taxation by the U.S. Postal Service because of an invalid mailing address. If you discover that your check was returned, you can submit a claim form online to have it reissued.

If you do not have access to a Touch-tone phone, or if you need information about the status of a refund for a prior year, call the Customer Service Center at 609-292-6400 during normal business hours to speak to a Division of Taxation representative.

What we offer

Product Resources

Other Income-Generating Products

Fixed income generally refers to investments that promise to pay interest or a return on your initial investment. However, other investment products may also provide income.

Types of other income-generating products

Some companies pay out a dividend, or a portion of their profits, to stockholders. Dividends are not fixed and can be increased, decreased, or eliminated without much notice. Similarly, the dividend yield can vary because of increases or decreases in the share price.

Preferred stock is distinct from common stock and is not offered by all companies. Preferred stocks offer dividends that aren’t guaranteed but must be paid before dividends are paid on common stock. As with bonds, preferred stocks have various terms and features that vary from one preferred to another and can impact the expected future income.

Fixed-rate capital securities (FRCS)

These hybrid securities combine the features of corporate bonds and preferred stock. FRCS carry the creditworthiness of the issuer and generally have a stated maturity. A commonly seen risk to their income-generating promises is their ability to defer or suspend interest payments in the event the issuer experiences financial difficulties

Equity income funds

These funds invest primarily in shares of companies that pay a dividend and can offer an attractive yield, while also providing the potential for conservative capital appreciation. Companies that pay dividends tend to be higher quality, mature businesses, with stable cash flows.

Asset allocation funds

These funds offer diversification across multiple asset classes, including domestic and international stocks across varying styles and market capitalization ranges, investment grade and high yield fixed income, and short-term investments. Fidelity also offers seven Fidelity Asset Manager ® funds, with equity exposure ranging from conservative (20%) to aggressive growth (85%).

Income replacement funds

Fidelity Income Replacement Funds SM combine the power of professional asset management with professionally managed withdrawals to help turn part of your savings into regular monthly payments.

Defined maturity funds (DMFs)

These funds are an innovative way to invest in municipal bonds.

Like Fidelity’s other municipal bond funds, DMFs offer professional management, diversification, and seek to provide federally tax-exempt income. Unlike traditional bond funds, a DMF’s price sensitivity to changes in interest rates declines gradually over time, approaching zero near the fund’s target end-date.

Fidelity Strategic Funds are multi-asset-class strategies that seek to address key income needs—bond income from global sources, non-bond income, and real return—by investing in a diversified mix of fixed income and/or equity investments chosen for their historical combined performance.

These funds invest in a variety of securities, much as you would with conventional open-end mutual funds. However, unlike open-end mutual funds, CEFs trade and are priced intraday—like stocks on an exchange—at prices determined by buyers and sellers.

Next steps

issuer

a government, corporation, municipality, or agency that has issued a security (e.g. a bond) in order to raise capital or to repay other debt; the issuer goes to an underwriter to get their securities sold in the new issue market; for certificates of deposit (CDs), this is the bank that has issued the CD; in the case of fixed income securities, the issuer of the security is the primary determinant of the security’s characteristics (e.g. coupon interest rate, maturity, call features, etc.)

maturity, maturity date(s)

the date on which the principal amount of a fixed income security is scheduled to become due and payable, typically along with any final coupon payment. It is also a list of the maturity dates on which individual bonds issued as part of a new issue municipal bond offering will mature

yield

the percentage of return an investor receives based on the amount invested or on the current market value of holdings; it is expressed as an annual percentage rate; yield stated is the yield to worst — the yield if the worst possible bond repayment takes place, reflecting the lower of the yield to maturity or the yield to call based on the previous close

The Budget Planner

Doing the budget planner accurately should take about an hour. It’s best if you gather together your bank and credit card statements first, preferably the last three months’ worth. Between them it should list all standing orders, direct debits and give you an accurate idea of what you spend.

For example, for food shopping, gather together all your receipts for the last three months, add up all food spending listed, then divide by three to reach your average monthly spend.

If you can, also gather together your payslips to establish exactly what you earn plus any bills or other documents if possible (though your statements should also detail this info).

MoneySave as you go!
It’s always surprising to see quite how many things you spend on. Worse still is how much you spend on them. Yet there are always ways to save. It’s worth considering if you’re getting the best value for money? Can you cut costs? The Money Makeover will help.

What the result really means.

Now we have a true picture of your income expenditure. Hopefully you’ve pressed the button at the end which tells you the real truth of your finances. Either you spend more than you earn or you earn more than you spend.

Well done you!

Providing you’ve been honest with yourself, it’s time to relax a little – but MoneySaving doesn’t stop there. In fact it’s just beginning. Paying less for things means you have more money in your pocket to enjoy life more (and possibly save some for the future too!).

The typical savings from doing this can be �3,000 – �5,000 a year. My estimate is it’ll take a full day’s work but look at the return. It’ll be the best paid work you’ve ever done. The whole site is dedicated to doing this in every area of your lifestyle, but to get started read the Money Makeover article.

Don’t run the risk of a debt spiral – sort it now!

Spending more than you earn may not seem like a big deal, yet it’s a potential disaster – and not just financially. At best you’re eroding your savings; at worst, you’ll need to borrow.

And this type of borrowing is the worst as it means you can’t afford your lifestyle and thus there’s no planning to the debt and no end in sight. Sadly, I’ve seen this result in debt crisis too many times, and that doesn’t just hit your pocket: it can hurt your home, family, mental health and relationship.

You may feel this is over-dramatising. But when there’s no money left and you can’t borrow more – and the creditors are asking for money back which you’ve no ability to repay – it touches every element of your life. This danger is what’s called a ‘debt spiral’. It works like this:

Many people fool themselves about this, a common thought is, “that doesn’t happen to nice families like us”. Well, I’m afraid even if you’re middle class, you’re not insulated from debt. In fact you’re in the prime category for debt crisis. It’s crucial to take the blinkers off.

Far too many people in work with good salaries have bigger debts. If your non-mortgage debts exceed half your after-tax salary, it’s a real issue.

The Best Income-Producing Investments

There are two types of return on investment: price appreciation and income. Investing for price appreciation requires taking on a certain amount of risk. Trading stock for profit involves market risk, credit risk and liquidity risk. Income securities, however, present less risk. Bonds and preferred stock return income amounts that are set at issue. Dividends don’t normally change unless the issuing company’s board of directors decides to raise or lower the dividend due to company financial performance. Dividend-paying stock, fixed-income bonds and preferred stock pay income to their investors.

Financial Goals

Examine your needs for income. Determine the amount you need and how often you want it paid — weekly, monthly, yearly or at maturity. Tax considerations also are important. Municipal bonds provide local, state and federal tax-free income, depending on where you live. However, the interest rates are considerably less than Treasury or corporate bonds because of the tax benefit. Income from dividends is taxed at a lower rate than regular interest income and interest income from Treasury securities is free of state income tax.

Interest Income

The structures of U.S. Treasury bonds, corporate bonds and municipal bonds are basically the same. Bonds pay interest every six months, unless structured differently at issue. The differences lie in the credit quality of the issuing entity and the tax treatment of the interest income. Preferred stock pays a fixed dividend, set at issue. It gives the dependable yearly income of a bond with the lower income tax rate of a dividend.

Dividend Income

Common stock dividends may fluctuate according to the financial performance of the company. Dividends are paid quarterly and are declared by the company’s board of directors, so they may change. Preferred stockholders will receive their dividends before common stockholders if the company defaults on dividends or declares bankruptcy. Common stock of public utilities is a conservative source of dividend income because this stock tends to trade within narrow trading ranges. The common stock of major industrial companies is riskier since the stock prices on these issues is also affected by the earnings performance of the company.

Annuities

Annuities are insurance products. You make monthly payments into an annuity for a number of years, accumulating money within the annuity. Once the fund is annuitized, which means payment of income begins, a fixed amount of money is paid out every month based on the total amount in the fund and the actuarial assumption regarding how long the owner of the annuity will continue to draw the income. Income from annuities is taxed as ordinary income.

3 of the Best Income Generating Investments in 2014

There are a wide variety of choices for today’s investor aiming to generate an income from their investments, but in the current economic climate; beset by low interest rates and a rising cost of living; the majority of traditional asset classes fail to deliver ‘real’ (adjusted for inflation) returns that generate any kind of tangible value-growth.

Investment Opportunity. The Secure Income Strategy™ 9% per annum fixed income paid monthly and secured against real estate as collateral. Download the Executive Summary and request the Investment Analysis Document and Due Diligence Pack here .

With the cost of living rising fast, the vast majority of interest bearing accounts delivering less than 1%, cash deposits effectively reduce the spending power of capital on an annual basis. At the same time; yields to government and corporate bonds continue to disappoint as investors support high prices in search of capital security and yield, and the threat of rising interest rates in 2014/15 looks set to cause havoc in bond markets. Finally; stock dividends rarely break through 5% and the value of the underlying assets can swing wildly as poor economic data continues to drive investor sentiment and day to day stock prices.

So what are the alternatives for those hoping to keep pace with inflation and earn a little extra on top?

In this article we look at some of the most popular alternatives to traditional income bearing investments. For access to a range of alternative investments that generate monthly or quarterly income, join as a Free Member of DGC Private. our private network of HNW Investors.

Property and Real Estate as an Income Investment

Property has seen somewhat of a resurgence in buy to let property investment amongst investors in recent months. In the United Kingdom prices have been driven up in some areas; specifically London and the South East; by overseas investors and the introduction of the UK Government’s Help to Buy scheme. In other areas such as the North of England prices have remained static or have fallen, creating further buying opportunities for well-positioned investors seeking superior yields.

In the United States some excellent opportunities exist to acquire rental properties delivering annual yield in excess of 10% as Banks and other former mortgage lenders dispose of foreclosed properties at bargain basement prices in order to improve their balance sheets in line with new Federal regulations on capital adequacy and bad debt.

Certainly in many developed-economy markets where the crash of 2008 saw property values plummet; bargains now exist for well-positioned investors capable of identifying, assessing, acquiring, improving and managing property assets.

There are a number of opportunities for investors to participate in both markets, from regulated property investment funds, to direct buy to let or rental property investments, and a range of alternative investments designed to provide more sophisticated investors with managed exposure to income generating assets.

Real estate however is not without risk, and the cost of ownership combined with management issues can make this popular asset class time consuming and ultimately less profitable over time, so acquiring the services of a professional capable of identifying, measuring and delivering suitable investment opportunities in the market of choice is essential and can add significant risk mitigation for the investor looking for a more hands off approach to generating an income through property.

Crowdlending – Crowdfunding as an Income Investment

Crowdfunding essentially facilitates large numbers of small investors to participate in an investment with as little as £10. Investments are usually in early stage companies that find it difficult to access traditional equity or debt financing, and there is a host of new websites set up to match investors with opportunities; all of which have different criteria for both the investor and the company seeking investment.

Much has been made of this emerging investment strategy in recent months. Many of the major financial publications have made a big deal of the stellar growth in crowdfunding website opportunities, and there are of course some excellent opportunities to be had. But for the income investor it is the not so distant cousin of crowdfunding; crowdlending; that might be of interest.

Crowdlending essentially matches investors seeking yield with people who need to borrow money. The borrower makes an application and the investor loans them money in exchange for an interest rate. Usually the website will vet the borrower, and some will pool either or both of the lenders funds and borrowers, so loans are split across multiple borrowers in order to reduce risk.

Interest rates are very attractive, and often range from 6% to 9%, which makes this form of investing very attractive for the income investor, especially considering traditional income investments deliver much less, especially bank deposits at less than 1%, and even public equities which generally don’t pay dividends of more than 5%.

Unlike the Secure Income Strategy ™. debt is not secured, and so the investor is reliant upon the borrower – someone they are relying on the website to vet to repay the loan in line with the terms and conditions, but default rates are low (right now), and crowdlending is gaining traction in the mainstream.

Renewable Energy Assets as an Income Generating Tool

Quite often overlooked and difficult to access for the average investor; renewable energy assets generate regular income through the production and distribution of energy. From solar panels to wind turbines, biofuels to tidal power; there are many ways to generate power on a renewable basis. Each of these assets can deliver a decent income stream for owners of such assets which is often subsidised in the long-term by the government.

With feed in tariffs still set at attractive rates, investing in solar panels and wind turbines can deliver yields in excess of 20% on invested capital for the right project, although the sector is fraught with risk for the uninitiated; as barriers to planning permission along with development risks and on-going management and maintenance costs converge to make this emerging asset class suitable only for those with industry specific experience, or at least access to a service provider that has such.
