Is a annuity check considered earned income?
Yes it is taxable income that has to be reported as such on your 1040 income tax return. For the tax year 2009 the first 2400 of unemployment compensation received will not be… taxable income that would have to be added to all of your other gross worldwide income and taxed at your marginal tax rate.
No. Unemployment, Social Security, retirement benefits, 401K pay outs, etc are not considered earned income for the purpose of calculating earned income credits. Sorry but… that is the law.
Only if your taking an income stream from it. A way around this would be to move the funds into a single premium whole life product and borrow from the life insurance policy. …A little loop hole for you ;)
Yes, the income you receive will be taxed as ordinary income.
no its not
I don't believe ther is anything called seperatly earned income...and have no idea what you think it is. Lottery, or gambling, or any of those types of income are consid…ered and taxed as ordinary income.
no only if you are actually gaining. for example, if you settled for $4000 because someone decided to do something dumb, and that is how much that cost to repair, then it wil…l not count because that is what is was worth before it was damaged. however, if you made like $8k, then the extra $4k would be taxable, because it is profit.
If the annuity is a non qualified tax deferred annuity (an annuity that taxes were paid on the money before they were placed into the annuity) you will pay taxes on any intere…st growth when it is removed from the annuity. If the annuity is a qualified annuity (no taxes were paid prior to placing the fund into the annuity) you will pay taxes on all withdrawals from the annuity.
I think that you mean income from a 300,000 capital lump sum. Correct? An annuity is when your capital is used to buy an income for life. There are two forms of annuity, purch…ased and compulsary. Purchased means you take your savings and buy an income for the rest of your life. A compulsary annuity is when your savings have been accrued in a tax exempt pension sceme and therefore you have NO CHOICE about buy an annuity with them. Okay, whatever the type of annuity, you get the choice of what type of annuity you buy as follows:- (1) Straightforward annuity. No guarantee. When you die, the income ceases. (2) Guaranteed annuity. The income would be paid for 5 or 10 years whether you were alive or dead. If the latter, it would be paid to your estate for the residual period of the guarantee. (3) Joint life annuity. If you are married and were to die first, the income would be paid to your wife until she died. (4) Indexed linked annuity. The income would be increased at a maximum of 5% per year to offset increases to the cost of living. Note that each time you add sophistication to your choice of annuity, the start level of the annuity would be lower. Also note that annuity rates fluctuate in line with bank interest rates. You should shop around to find the highest annuity payer as rates differ between different insurance companies.

Yes. Your bank will send you a 1099-INT in January of the next year if you accrue enough interest on your checking account in a year to warrant issuance of one.
