STEP 4 GROSS INCOME

If using filing status 3 (married filing separately on a combined return), complete both columns A and B of the IA1040. All other filing statuses complete only column A (you or joint).

All taxpayers including nonresidents report income from all sources (unless specifically exempt, such as U.S. Treasury interest) for the entire year in this section.

Note: As a result of Federal legislation, the nonresident military taxpayer does not include military pay on line 1 of the IA 1040 (nor is it reported on the IA 126). In general, this applies to active duty military and does not include the National Guard or reserve personnel.

NONRESIDENTS and PART-YEAR RESIDENTS must also complete Iowa Schedule IA126. Report only Iowa-source income on the Schedule IA126, lines 1-26. This schedule will result in a credit for the amount of tax based on income earned outside of Iowa.

1. WAGES, SALARIES, TIPS, ETC. Report the same W-2 income as shown on your Federal income tax return, including military income. See line 24, item "o", for allowable military adjustments.

Married Separate Filers:
W-2 income is reported by the spouse earning the income.
