In the State of Illinois, with regard to a family trust, would there be capital gains tax in the amount of 5% when the value of the trust is $500,000?
In the State of Illinois, every trust and estate that is earning or receiving income is subject to taxes which are figured by multiplying the net income by a flat rate. In most cases, the State of Illinois bases most of their taxes on the Federal Income Tax Code. After January 2011, the tax rate has become 5% for a trust or estate and a 1.5% replacement tax also has to be paid by the trust.
I was unemployed and collected unemployment devoid of any tax. My wife was also unemployed but had a few dollars of taxable interest. Our combined income amounted to less than the standard deduction for a joint return. However, in the “Additions to Federal Taxable Income” section on Form D-400, it says that I need to enter $10,900 as my standard deduction. Shouldn’t it be $17,900 for a joint return? Line 35 also mentions an extra $3,000 that I need to add which results in a taxable income that I don’t have. What can I do?
The form you are using is the correct one and based on that, you have to enter a figure of $10,900 as your federal standard
if you are filing a joint return as a married couple. In most cases, the IRS also allows the individual and their spouse a $3,500 personal
allowance each. The total of the personal allowances and the standard deduction is what amounts to $17,900 but out of this only $10,900 is the actual standard deduction. With regard to line 35, you should be able to leave this blank unless you have a combined income of $100,000.The following link will help to fill out the form and page ten will explain line 35 in detail:
If a person worked in Iraq the previous year and the person’s W-2 states that their federal income was $75,000 and their state income was $158,000, does it indicate that there is a mistake in the figures? Shouldn’t they be the same?
When it comes to a person’s W-2, the Taxable Federal Income would be the amount shown in Box 1. The person may have also made several contributions that would not be included in this amount. If these contributions were tax deferred, they would be deducted from the Box 1 amount. Since an individual’s pre-tax status is only for
purposes and not for state tax, the figure shown for State Taxable Income will be higher than the Federal Taxable Income. However, in each case it would be better to check with the person’s employer and ask them for a detailed list of why the amounts are different.
Federal Taxable Income is the amount of income that a person makes that the Federal Government levies taxes upon. When a person is dealing with their taxes, they may run into questions regarding why federal income amounts differ from state income amounts, what is the way they need to figure out their Federal Taxable Income and so on. At times like this, put your questions to Tax Professionals who can offer insights and information at a reasonable cost to help with your specific case.

My daughter was a full time student at the beginning of 2014 and earned income in the state of Minnesota, which has a state tax. She claimed residency there for 4 years while in college. The second half of 2014 she was a full time student in the state of Florida and earned income, they do not assess a state tax on income.
The MN state individual income tax return form asks for wages listed on federal return/federal taxable income - once we begin calculations from that point, that is the income MN is using to access state taxes due. MN earnings - 3258.02, state withholding 48.89; FL earnings - 7289.29, no state taxes withheld/accessed.
Is there a way to file MN taxes without being accessed tax on income earned in another state? do we just not file a MN tax return? I can't believe the state of MN can access a tax on income earned elsewhere.

I have pre-IPO shares in a company that recently went public.
I have pre-IPO shares in a company that recently went public. Tax basis is zero as they were worth $0 when issued in August 2013. I live in the state of Colorado, am single, and make ~$60K/year. The company is headquartered in Colorado, but like most, is a Delaware corporation. I understand the federal capital gains tax structure. I believe I will be in the 15% bracket on all capital gains should I liquidate, unless that amount exceeds $413,200 for the year (it won't). My question concerns the state capital gains tax. I've come across some literature talking about exemption from paying state income tax on capital gains if that asset is held over 5 years. However, this asset is technically registered in Delaware. First, would I owe any state capital gains tax to any state? Second, how much would it be? Third, would this 5 year rule apply, where I might be better off (purely from a tax perspective) waiting to sell my shares?
