Clear Form 2014 Montana Individual Income Tax Form 2M Worksheets Page 23 Worksheet II – Tax Benefit Rule for Federal Income Tax Refund (Do not complete this worksheet if you claimed the Montana standard deduction on your 2013 Montana return.) A tax benefit recovery occurs when an amount you claimed as a deduction or credit in an earlier tax year is returned to you. Recoveries are taxable to the extent that you received a tax benefit from the deduction or credit. The most common recovery in Montana is when you receive a federal tax refund during the current tax year for the paid federal taxes you included as an itemized deduction on the previous year’s Montana return. A simple way to check if your federal refund is taxable is to subtract the refund you received in 2014 from the total federal income taxes you reported on Schedule I, lines 7a through 7d on your 2013 Montana return. If the result is larger than the $5,000 (or $10,000 if filing a joint return) you were allowed to deduct on line 7e on Schedule I of your 2013 Montana return, none of the refund is taxable. This worksheet will help you determine how much, if any, of your federal tax refund you received in 2014 is taxed by Montana. You may use this worksheet only if all three of the following conditions exist: • You received a federal tax refund in 2014; • You claimed itemized deductions on your 2013 Montana return; and • Your only tax benefit recovery in 2014 was a refund of federal taxes you claimed as a deduction on your 2013 Montana return. If all three conditions do not exist, you need to use Worksheet IX, Tax Benefit Rule Recovery of Itemized Deductions. You will also need to use Worksheet IX if you received a federal refund for taxes you reported in a year other than 2013 or if you recovered any other item that you claimed as a deduction on your Montana return in 2013 or any other year (for instance, your insurance company reimbursed you for a medical expense you claimed as an itemized deduction). You can obtain Worksheet IX by visiting our website at revenue.mt.gov or by calling us toll free at (866) 859-2254 (in Helena, 444-6900). Before you begin, see the instructions above and on page 3 for Form 2M, line 23 to determine if you need to complete Worksheet II. 1.

Worksheet VII – Calculation of Interest on Underpayment of Estimated Taxes – Short Method You usually have to pay your income tax liability throughout the year. You can pay through employer withholding, by making installment payments of estimated taxes, or a combination of both. If you have to pay estimated taxes and you did not pay enough during the year by each of the four quarterly installment payment dates, you may owe interest on your underpayment of those estimated taxes even if you pay the full amount of tax you owe when you file your return. You are not required to make estimated tax payments if one of the following conditions relate to you: • Your tax liability (after withholding and estimated tax payments) is less than $500. • You did not have a 2013 income tax liability and you were a citizen or resident of the United States the entire year. • Your underpayment was due to a casualty, disaster or another unusual circumstance. • You retired in either 2013 or 2014 after reaching the age of 62. • You become disabled in either 2013 or 2014. • You are a farmer or rancher and 66 2/3% of your 2014 gross income is derived from your farming and ranching operation. Your 66 2/3% farming and ranching income is determined annually and is based on your 2014 gross income. Please note that Montana does not use the same “look back” period that the Internal Revenue Service uses to determine the percentage of your farming and ranching income for federal income tax purposes. If you did not pay in advance at least 90% of your 2014 income tax liability (after applying your credits) or 100% of your 2013 income tax liability (after applying your credits), you may have to pay interest on the underpayment of your estimated taxes. If you are required to pay interest on your underpayment, you can use this short method to determine your interest, but only if one of the following conditions applies to you: • You made no estimated tax payments (in other words, your only payments were Montana withholding); or • You made four equal estimated payments by the required due dates. If you are not eligible to use this short method to calculate your interest on your underpayment, use Montana Form EST-I, Interest on Underpayment of Estimated Tax Payments. You can get this form by visiting our website at revenue.mt.gov or by calling us toll free at (866) 859-2254 (in Helena, 444-6900). 1.

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!
