Citizenship A Non-Resident Alien is a non-US citizen who doesn't pass the "substantial presence test" or the "green card test".

If the non-US-citizen has resided in the United States for fewer than 31 days in the current year, or has resided in the United States for fewer than 183 days over a 3-year period including the current year, he or she would fail the substantial presence test and be classified as a Non-Resident Alien.

If a non-US-citizen does not currently have a green card, and has not had a green card in the past calender year, he or she would fail the green card test and be classified as a Non-Resident Alien.

Non-Resident Aliens typically file the 1040-NR or 1040-NR-EZ federal tax returns.
Out of Country If you will be outside of the United States or Puerto Rico on the regular due date of your return, select Yes. For most people, the regular date of their return is 4/15/14.

Also select Yes if either of the following are true:
• You are in military or naval service outside the US or Puerto, but you will be physically present in the US or Puerto Rico on the regular date of your return.
• You live outside the US and Puerto Rico and your main place of work is outside the US and Puerto Rico, but you will be physically present in the US or Puerto Rico on the regular date of your return.
Estimated Tax This is called your "total tax liability". It is the total amount of taxes you will owe the IRS for 2013, whether you have paid any of it yet or not. For example, if you estimate that you will owe the IRS $10,000, and you had $5000 withheld from your paychecks throughout the year for federal taxes, your total tax liability is that first number, $10,000.

For reference, this would be the number you enter on line 61 of Form 1040.

One way you can estimate your total tax liability is as follows:
• Add together your income from employers, savings and investments, and other sources. You can find federal taxable income from an employer in box 1 of the W-2 form they send you. Various other income such as for independent contractors and unearned income like interest and dividends can be found on the 1099 forms you may receive.
• You can then reduce that number with any deductions, exemptions, or other gross income adjustments that you expect to qualify for.
• You now have an estimate of your total taxable income.
• Use the 2013 Tax Table found here to estimate your tax liability. For example, if your total taxable income is $20,000 and you are Single, the tax table calculates your tax as $2579.
• If you expect to qualify for any credits, refer to your chosen tax return form to see where to include them. Some credits are subtracted at this step as part of the total tax liability calculation, whereas other credits are included with the withholdings and payments total in the next field. If you don't know where to apply your expected credit, or don't know if you'll qualify for any credits yet, you can err on the safe side by not including credits at all with this estimation. You can include credits later with your final tax return filing.

It is important that you attempt to estimate as well as you can. If the IRS later determines that your estimate was not reasonable, they will nullify your extension.
Estimating Your Tax These fields are to estimate your "total tax liability", which is the total amount of taxes you will owe the IRS for 2013, whether you have paid any of it yet or not. For example, if you estimate that you will owe the IRS $10,000, and you had $5000 withheld from your paychecks throughout the year for federal taxes, your total tax liability is that first number, $10,000. For reference, this would be the number you enter on line 61 of Form 1040.

Filing Status - What is the filing status that you expect to declare on your federal tax return? The options are Single, Married Filing Jointly, Married Filing Separately, and Head of Household.
Dependents - How many dependents do you expect to declare on your federal tax return?
2013 Income - Add together your income from employers, savings and investments, and other sources. You can find federal taxable income from employers in box 1 of the W-2 forms they send you. Various other income such as for independent contractors, and unearned income like interest and dividends, can be found on the 1099 forms you may receive.
Estimate for total amount of 2013 federal taxes - Our estimation calculation uses various simplifying assumptions such as taking one exemption for yourself, one for your spouse if filing jointly, and one for each dependent, using the standard deduction instead of itemizing deductions, not claiming any credits, etc. This is only an estimate and the final amount when you file your return may be higher or lower.

It is important that you attempt to estimate as well as you can. If the IRS later determines that your estimate was not reasonable, they will nullify your extension.
Amount Already Paid This is the total amount of 2013 federal tax payments you have already made. If you have federal taxes withheld from your paycheck by your employer, this number will be in box 2 of the W-2 form you receive from them. Add these withholdings to any other payments you have already made toward your 2013 federal taxes. The total is your 2013 federal taxes already paid.

For reference, this would correspond Form 1040 line 72 minus Form 1040 line 68. You do not include the amount of any payment that you will be making now, with this extension.

If you expect to qualify for any credits, refer to your chosen tax return form to see where to include them. Some credits are included in the total tax liability calculation, whereas other credits are included with this Amount Already Paid field. If you don't know where to apply your expected credit, or don't know if you'll qualify for any credits yet, you can err on the safe side by not including credits at all with this estimation. You can include credits later with your final tax return filing.

It is important to that you attempt to estimate as well as you can. If the IRS later determines that your estimate was not reasonable, they will nullify your extension.
Estimated Balance Due This is the difference between your estimated tax and your payments. It is updated here automatically.
Amount Paying Now You do not have to pay a balance to receive a filing extension.

But tax extensions do not extend the time you have to pay your taxes. They only extend the time you have to file your tax return. Any 2013 tax balance due to the IRS is still due on 4/15/14.

Failing to pay the full balance due by 4/15/14 will result in interest, and possibly penalties as well. So if you cannot pay the full balance due by 4/15/14, the IRS advises that you should pay as much as you can to limit the amount of interest you will owe.

If you wish to pay part or all of your balance now to the IRS, your card will not be charged for that amount at checkout. Instead, we will inform you how to pay the IRS directly after we are finished processing your extension.
