Missouri Form Mo-1040 Instructions
IMPORTANT FILING INFORMATION
This information is for guidance only and does not state the complete law.
You do not have to file a Missouri return if you are not required to file a federal return.
If you are required to file a federal return, you may not have to file a Missouri return if you:
- are a resident and have less than $1,200 of Missouri adjusted gross income;
- are a nonresident with less than $600 of Missouri income; or
- have Missouri adjusted gross income less than the amount of your standard deduction plus the exemption amount for your filing status.
If you are not required to file a Missouri return, but you received a Form W-2 stating you had Missouri tax withheld, you must file your Missouri return to get a refund of your Missouri withholding. If you are not required to file a Missouri return and you do not anticipate an increase in income, you may change your Form MO W-4 to "exempt" so your employer will not withhold Missouri tax.
When To File
Calendar year taxpayers must file no later than April 15, 2014. Late filing will subject taxpayers to charges for interest and addition to tax. Fiscal year filers must file no later than the 15th day of the fourth month following the close of their taxable year.
Extension of Time to File
You are not required to file an extension if you do not expect to owe additional income tax or if you anticipate receiving a refund. If you wish to file a Missouri extension, and do not expect to owe Missouri income tax, you may file an extension by filing Form MO-60, Application for Extension of Time to File. An automatic extension of time to file will be granted until October 15, 2014.
If you receive an extension of time to file your federal income tax return, you will automatically be granted an extension of time to file your Missouri income tax return, provided you do not expect to owe any additional Missouri income tax. Attach a copy of your federal extension (Federal Form 4868) with your Missouri income tax return when you file.
If you expect to owe Missouri income tax, file Form MO-60 with your payment by the original due date of the return.
An extension of time to file does not extend the time to pay. A 5 percent addition to tax will apply if the tax is not paid by the original return's due date.
Late Filing and Payment
Simple interest is charged on all delinquent taxes. The rate will be updated annually and can be found on our website at
For timely filed returns, an addition to tax of 5 percent (of the unpaid tax) is added if the tax is not paid by the return's due date.
For returns not filed by the due date, an addition to tax of 5 percent per month (of the unpaid tax) is added for each month the return is not filed. The addition to tax cannot exceed 25 percent.
If you are unable to pay the tax owed in full on the due date, please visit the Department of Revenue's website at
for yourpayment options. If you are mailing a partial payment, please use the Form MO-1040V found on page 40.

You must begin your Missouri return with your total federal adjusted gross income, even if you have income from a state other than Missouri.
Line 1 - Federal Adjusted Gross Income
If your filing status is "married filing combined" and both spouses are reporting income, use the worksheet below to split income between you and your spouse. The combined income for you and your spouse must equal the total federal adjusted gross income you reported on your federal return. For all other filing statuses, use the chart below to determine your federal adjusted gross income.
If you include loss(es) of $1,000 or more on Line 1, you must attach a copy of Federal Form 1040 (pages 1 and 2).

Line 5S ____ divided by Line 6 ____= _____
The total entered on Line 7 must equal 100 percent - round to the nearest percentage. (Example: 84.3 percent would be shown as 84 percent, and 97.5 percent would be shown as 98 percent.) Lines 7Y and 7S must equal 100 percent.
If one spouse has negative income and the other spouse has positive income (example: your income is -$15,000 and your spouse's income is $30,000), enter zero percent on Line 7Y and 100 percent on Line 7S. If nothing is entered, the Department will consider this to be 100 percent.

A separate tax must be computed for you and your spouse.
Lines 26 and 27 - Resident Credit or Missouri Income Percentage
Note: A taxpayer filing as a resident who paid taxes to another state or political subdivision may take a credit for tax paid by using Form MO-CR. A taxpayer filing as a nonresident may calculate their Missouri income percentage by using the Form MO-NRI. A Form MO-CR and a Form MO-NRI may not be used by the same taxpayer on Form MO-1040. (If filing a combined return, one spouse may use Form MO-NRI and the other spouse may elect to use Form MO-CR). See Lines 26 and 27. Visit
for more information and examples.
Attach a copy of your other state's or political subdivision's return.
Line 26 - Missouri Resident(s)
You should take the resident credit (Form MO-CR) if:
- you are a full-year Missouri resident; and
- you paid income tax to other state(s) or political subdivisions.
Line 27 - Nonresident(s)
You should determine your Missouri income percentage (Form MO-NRI) if:
- you are a nonresident; and
- you had income from other state(s) or political subdivisions.
The amount on Line 27 should be 100 percent unless you use Form MO-NRI and determine a lesser percentage. If you do not enter a percentage on Line 27, your tax will be based on all of your income, regardless of where it was earned.
Line 26 or 27 - Part-year Resident(s)
You may take either the resident credit or the Missouri income percentage. Complete both Forms MO-CR and MO-NRI and use the one that is to your advantage. All income earned while living in Missouri is taxable to Missouri.
Attach a copy of your other state or political subdivision's return.
Line 29 - Tax on Lump Sum Distributions and Recapture Tax on Missouri Low Income Housing Credits
Lump Sum Distributions.
A taxpayer who receives a lump sum distribution may be required to file Federal Form 4972. Because this income is not included in your Missouri adjusted gross income, a separate calculation must be made to compute the Missouri tax on this distribution. You are subject to the tax if your state of legal residence was Missouri at the time you received the lump sum distribution. The amount of tax is 10 percent of your federal tax liability on the distribution received in 2013.
You must compute this tax by multiplying the amount shown as tax on a Lump Sum Distribution (Federal Form 4972) by 10 percent. For example, if your Federal Form 1040, Line 44 includes $1,000 tax as a result of a Lump Sum Distribution (Federal Form 4972), the amount of tax on Form MO-1040, Line 29, would be $100. Check the Lump Sum Distribution box on Line 29. Attach a copy of Federal Form 4972.
If you are required to recapture a portion of any federal low income housing credits taken on a low income housing project, you are also required to recapture a portion of any state credits taken. The state recapture amount is the proportion of the state credit that equals the proportion the federal recapture amount bears to the original federal low income housing credit amount. Attach a copy of your federal return (pages 1 and 2) and Federal Form 8611.
