813 Form PDF Details

On August 13th, 2013, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) released a new tax form, Form 813. The form is used to report the ownership of certain United States possessions, including Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands. The form must be filed by taxpayers who own 10% or more of any one possession. The release of this new form coincides with a change in IRS policy for taxation of income earned in U.S. possessions. The new policy exempts from federal income tax any income earned by a taxpayer from sources within a possession that are considered part of that taxpayer's trade or business there. This change is effective for taxable years beginning after December 31st, 2012.

The SF 813 should be used to request verification of participation in a nonwartime campaign or expedition, and dates of participation, only if this information is not documented on the retiree's DD Form 214. It is the retired member's responsibility to provide the name of any nonwartime campaign or expedition for which credit is requested. Service will be verified only if the SF 813 lists specific campaigns/expeditions and inclusive dates of the retiree's participation. It is not sufficient to list just the service component (e.g., “USAF') or medal (e.g., “Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal”). If a follow up request is necessary, reproduce a copy of the original request and clearly mark the top of the SF 813, “Follow up Request.” For additional information see www.opm.gov/StaffingPortal/vgmedal2.asp, VetGuide Appendix A: Wars, Campaigns and Expeditions of the Armed Forces Since WWII Which Qualify for Veterans Preference.
