Estates and trusts must use form IA 1041 Schedule I to calculate alternative minimum tax. An individual should not complete form IA 6251 if: • Your filing status is single and your net income (IA 1040, line 26) is $9,000 or less ($24,000 or less if 65 or older on 12/31/19); or • Your filing status is other than single and your net income (IA 1040, line 26) is $13,500 or less ($32,000 or less if you or your spouse was 65 or older on 12/31/19). All other individuals who had one or more of the adjustments or preferences in Part I must complete form IA 6251 to see if they owe Iowa Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT). Taxpayers may have an Iowa AMT liability even if they do not owe federal AMT. Nonresidents who have a liability for Iowa AMT are required to file an Iowa return even if they have no regular Iowa income tax liability. Married filing separate filers: Each spouse needs to complete a separate IA 6251. Note: The Iowa AMT Credit is available which may reduce the regular tax of an individual for Iowa AMT paid in a prior year. See instructions for form IA 8801. Part I - Iowa Adjustments and Preferences Part I of the IA 6251 corresponds to Part I of federal Form 6251 except as noted. Lines 3 through 16: See the corresponding lines on federal Form 6251 for additional guidance. If the regular income amounts on the IA 1040 differ from the corresponding amounts on the federal form 1040 use the amounts from the IA 1040 to calculate Iowa AMT amounts by following the federal instructions for making adjustments, unless otherwise specified in these instructions. Line 8: If the amount of your Iowa depreciation deduction for this year was different from the amount of your federal depreciation deduction, you may need to recalculate the amounts shown on the federal form 6251 to adjust for the Iowa amount. Recalculate this amount by using the Iowa depreciation deduction amounts shown on this year’s IA 4562A, and follow the federal AMT adjustment instructions for the federal form 6251, line 2(L). Line 16: If the amount of your Iowa depreciation deduction or any other Iowa nonconformity adjustment for this year was different from the amount shown on your federal return, you may need to recalculate the amounts shown on the federal form 6251 to adjust for the Iowa amount. Recalculate this amount by using the Iowa depreciation deduction amounts shown on this year’s IA 4562A, or other nonconformity adjustments shown on IA 1040 line 14, and follow the federal AMT adjustment instructions for federal form 6251, line 3. Note: The federal tax preferences for percentage depletion of an oil, gas, or geothermal well and intangible drilling costs from federal Form 6251 are not tax preferences but are additions to income on IA 1040, line 14. Part II – Iowa Alternative Minimum Taxable Income Line 21: A net operating loss (NOL) can be carried back or carried forward to reduce a taxpayer’s alternative minimum taxable income. However, before the NOL can be deducted, it must be reduced by any adjustments and tax preferences used in computing the NOL. A NOL that is carried to the current tax year on line 21 cannot exceed 90% of the amount on line 20. Any portion of the NOL that cannot be used can be carried over to the next tax year. For guidance regarding the application of a NOL carryback or carryforward, see the IA123 NOL schedule instructions. Part IV - Nonresidents and Part-Year Residents Nonresidents and part-year residents of Iowa are required to pay Iowa AMT only on the percentage of adjustments and tax preferences that are Iowa source. Part IV must be completed to calculate the Iowa AMT liability for nonresidents and part-year residents only if one has Iowa source adjustments or preferences. Line 32: Add Iowa net income from IA 126, line 26, plus the total of only those adjustments and tax preferences from IA 6251, line 17 that are from Iowa sources. 41-131c (07/23/19) 2019 IA 6251 Instructions, page 2 Line 33: Add all-source net income from IA 126, line 27, plus the total of all adjustments and tax preferences from IA 6251, line 17. Line 35: Multiply line 31 by line 34. The result is the Iowa AMT and is to be entered on IA 1040, line 41. See the instructions below relating to Iowa AMT limited to net worth. Iowa Alternative Minimum Tax Limited to Net Worth Taxpayers who meet all qualifications for a distressed sale, but have a debt to asset ratio of 75% or less, are not subject to the AMT in an amount greater than the taxpayer’s net worth. In situations where a taxpayer has multiple transactions (forfeitures, transfers, sales, or exchanges), AMT is limited to net worth prior to the last transaction in the tax year. Please complete the IA 6251B form to determine net worth. 41-131d (07/12/19)

About the Individual Income Tax

The IRS and most states collect a personal income tax, which is paid throughout the year via tax withholding or estimated income tax payments.

Most taxpayers are required to file a yearly income tax return in April to both the Internal Revenue Service and their state's revenue department, which will result in either a tax refund of excess withheld income or a tax payment if the withholding does not cover the taxpayer's entire liability. Every taxpayer's situation is different - please consult a CPA or licensed tax preparer to ensure that you are filing the correct tax forms!
