Illustrated Example of Form 5074

Tracy Grey is a U.S. citizen who is a self-employed fisheries consultant with a tax home in New York. Her only income for 2008 was net self-employment income of $80,000. Of the $80,000, $20,000 was from consulting work in Guam and the rest was earned in the United States. Thinking she would owe tax to Guam on the $20,000, Tracy made estimated tax payments of $1,409 to Guam. She was not a bona fide resident of Guam during 2008.
Tracy completes Form 1040 (not illustrated), reporting her worldwide income. Because she earned more than $50,000 and at least $5,000 of her gross income is from Guam, Tracy must file Form 5074 with her Form 1040. All amounts reported on Form 5074 are also reported on her Form 1040.
