Form 1120-F

Form 1120-F

A tax return for the U.S.-sourced income of a foreign corporation. A foreign corporation files Form 1120-F to report its U.S. revenue, expenses and profits or losses. It also uses Form 1120-F to claim deductions and credits, which is especially important in the United States because corporate tax rates historically have been high compared to other countries.
