Can i file 1040x online   Unrelated business income is the income from a trade or business regularly conducted by an exempt organization and not substantially related to the performance by the organization of its exempt purpose or function, except that the organization uses the profits derived from this activity. Can i file 1040x online   Certain trade or business activities are not treated as an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online See Excluded Trade or Business Activities, later. Can i file 1040x online Trade or business. Can i file 1040x online   The term “trade or business” generally includes any activity conducted for the production of income from selling goods or performing services. Can i file 1040x online An activity does not lose its identity as a trade or business merely because it is conducted within a larger group of similar activities that may or may not be related to the exempt purposes of the organization. Can i file 1040x online   For example, the regular sale of pharmaceutical supplies to the general public by a hospital pharmacy does not lose its identity as a trade or business, even though the pharmacy also furnishes supplies to the hospital and patients of the hospital in accordance with its exempt purpose. Can i file 1040x online Similarly, soliciting, selling, and publishing commercial advertising is a trade or business even though the advertising is published in an exempt organization's periodical that contains editorial matter related to the organization's exempt purpose. Can i file 1040x online Regularly conducted. Can i file 1040x online   Business activities of an exempt organization ordinarily are considered regularly conducted if they show a frequency and continuity, and are pursued in a manner similar to comparable commercial activities of nonexempt organizations. Can i file 1040x online   For example, a hospital auxiliary's operation of a sandwich stand for 2 weeks at a state fair would not be the regular conduct of a trade or business. Can i file 1040x online The stand would not compete with similar facilities that a nonexempt organization would ordinarily operate year-round. Can i file 1040x online However, operating a commercial parking lot every Saturday, year-round, would be the regular conduct of a trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Not substantially related. Can i file 1040x online    A business activity is not substantially related to an organization's exempt purpose if it does not contribute importantly to accomplishing that purpose (other than through the production of funds). Can i file 1040x online Whether an activity contributes importantly depends in each case on the facts involved. Can i file 1040x online   In determining whether activities contribute importantly to the accomplishment of an exempt purpose, the size and extent of the activities involved must be considered in relation to the nature and extent of the exempt function that they intend to serve. Can i file 1040x online For example, to the extent an activity is conducted on a scale larger than is reasonably necessary to perform an exempt purpose, it does not contribute importantly to the accomplishment of the exempt purpose. Can i file 1040x online The part of the activity that is more than needed to accomplish the exempt purpose is an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online   Also in determining whether activities contribute importantly to the accomplishment of an exempt purpose, the following principles apply. Can i file 1040x online Selling of products of exempt functions. Can i file 1040x online   Ordinarily, selling products that result from the performance of exempt functions is not an unrelated trade or business if the product is sold in substantially the same state it is in when the exempt functions are completed. Can i file 1040x online Thus, for an exempt organization engaged in rehabilitating handicapped persons (its exempt function), selling articles made by these persons as part of their rehabilitation training is not an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online   However, if a completed product resulting from an exempt function is used or exploited in further business activity beyond what is reasonably appropriate or necessary to dispose of it as is, the activity is an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online For example, if an exempt organization maintains an experimental dairy herd for scientific purposes, the sale of milk and cream produced in the ordinary course of operation of the project is not an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online But if the organization uses the milk and cream in the further manufacture of food items such as ice cream, pastries, etc. Can i file 1040x online , the sale of these products is an unrelated trade or business unless the manufacturing activities themselves contribute importantly to the accomplishment of an exempt purpose of the organization. Can i file 1040x online Dual use of assets or facilities. Can i file 1040x online   If an asset or facility necessary to the conduct of exempt functions is also used in commercial activities, its use for exempt functions does not, by itself, make the commercial activities a related trade or business. Can i file 1040x online The test, as discussed earlier, is whether the activities contribute importantly to the accomplishment of exempt purposes. Can i file 1040x online   For example, a museum has a theater auditorium designed for showing educational films in connection with its program of public education in the arts and sciences. Can i file 1040x online The theater is a principal feature of the museum and operates continuously while the museum is open to the public. Can i file 1040x online If the organization also operates the theater as a motion picture theater for the public when the museum is closed, the activity is an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online   For information on allocating expenses for the dual use of assets or facilities, see Deductions in chapter 4. Can i file 1040x online Exploitation of exempt functions. Can i file 1040x online   Exempt activities sometimes create goodwill or other intangibles that can be exploited in a commercial way. Can i file 1040x online When an organization exploits such an intangible in commercial activities, the fact that the income depends in part upon an exempt function of the organization does not make the commercial activities a related trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Unless the commercial exploitation contributes importantly to the accomplishment of the exempt purpose, the commercial activities are an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online   For the treatment of expenses attributable to the exploitation of exempt activities, see Deductions in chapter 4. Can i file 1040x online Examples The following are examples of activities that were determined to be (or not to be) unrelated trades or businesses using the definitions and principles just discussed. Can i file 1040x online Sales commissions. Can i file 1040x online   An agricultural organization, whose exempt purposes are to promote better conditions for cattle breeders and to improve the breed generally, engages in an unrelated trade or business when it regularly sells cattle for its members on a commission basis. Can i file 1040x online Artists' facilities. Can i file 1040x online   An organization whose exempt purpose is to stimulate and foster public interest in the fine arts by promoting art exhibits, sponsoring cultural events, and furnishing information about fine arts leases studio apartments to artist tenants and operates a dining hall primarily for these tenants. Can i file 1040x online These two activities do not contribute importantly to accomplishing the organization's exempt purpose. Can i file 1040x online Therefore, they are unrelated trades or businesses. Can i file 1040x online Membership list sales. Can i file 1040x online   An exempt educational organization regularly sells membership mailing lists to business firms. Can i file 1040x online This activity does not contribute importantly to the accomplishment of the organization's exempt purpose and therefore is an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Also see Exchange or rental of member lists under Excluded Trade or Business Activities, later. Can i file 1040x online Hospital facilities. Can i file 1040x online   An exempt hospital leases its adjacent office building and furnishes certain office services to a hospital-based medical group for a fee. Can i file 1040x online The group provides all diagnostic and therapeutic procedures to the hospital's patients and operates the hospital's emergency room on a 24-hour basis. Can i file 1040x online The leasing activity is substantially related to the hospital's exempt purpose and is not an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online   The hospital also operates a gift shop patronized by patients, visitors making purchases for patients, and employees; a cafeteria and coffee shop primarily for employees and medical staff; and a parking lot for patients and visitors only. Can i file 1040x online These activities are also substantially related to the hospital's exempt purpose and do not constitute unrelated trades or businesses. Can i file 1040x online Book publishing. Can i file 1040x online   An exempt organization engages primarily in activities that further its exempt purposes. Can i file 1040x online It also owns the publication rights to a book that does not relate to any of its exempt purposes. Can i file 1040x online The organization exploits the book in a commercial manner by arranging for printing, distribution, publicity, and advertising in connection with the sale of the book. Can i file 1040x online These activities constitute a trade or business regularly conducted. Can i file 1040x online Because exploiting the book is unrelated to the organization's exempt purposes (except for the use of the book's profits), the income is unrelated business income. Can i file 1040x online   However, if the organization transfers publication rights to a commercial publisher in return for royalties, the royalty income received will not be unrelated business income. Can i file 1040x online See Royalties under Exclusions in chapter 4. Can i file 1040x online School handicraft shop. Can i file 1040x online   An exempt vocational school operates a handicraft shop that sells articles made by students in their regular courses of instruction. Can i file 1040x online The students are paid a percentage of the sales price. Can i file 1040x online In addition, the shop sells products made by local residents who make articles at home according to the shop's specifications. Can i file 1040x online The shop manager periodically inspects the articles during their manufacture to ensure that they meet desired standards of style and quality. Can i file 1040x online Although many local participants are former students of the school, any qualified person may participate in the program. Can i file 1040x online The sale of articles made by students does not constitute an unrelated trade or business, but the sale of products made by local residents is an unrelated trade or business and is subject to unrelated business income tax. Can i file 1040x online School facilities. Can i file 1040x online   An exempt school has tennis courts and dressing rooms that it uses during the regular school year in its educational program. Can i file 1040x online During the summer, the school operates a tennis club open to the general public. Can i file 1040x online Employees of the school run the club, including collecting membership fees and scheduling court time. Can i file 1040x online   Another exempt school leases the same type of facilities to an unrelated individual who runs a tennis club for the summer. Can i file 1040x online The lease is for a fixed fee that does not depend on the income or profits derived from the leased property. Can i file 1040x online   In both situations, the exempt purpose is the advancement of education. Can i file 1040x online Furnishing tennis facilities in the manner described does not further that exempt purpose. Can i file 1040x online These activities are unrelated trades or businesses. Can i file 1040x online However, in the second situation the income derived from the leasing of the property is excluded from unrelated business taxable income as rent from real property. Can i file 1040x online See Rents under Exclusions in chapter 4. Can i file 1040x online Services provided with lease. Can i file 1040x online   An exempt university leases its football stadium during several months of the year to a professional football team for a fixed fee. Can i file 1040x online Under the lease agreement, the university furnishes heat, light, and water and is responsible for all ground maintenance. Can i file 1040x online It also provides dressing room, linen, and stadium security services for the professional team. Can i file 1040x online   Leasing of the stadium is an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online In addition, the substantial services furnished for the convenience of the lessee go beyond those usually provided with the rental of space for occupancy only. Can i file 1040x online Therefore, the income from this lease is rent from real property and unrelated business taxable income. Can i file 1040x online Broadcasting rights. Can i file 1040x online   An exempt collegiate athletic conference conducts an annual competitive athletic game between its conference champion and another collegiate team. Can i file 1040x online Income is derived from admission charges and the sale of exclusive broadcasting rights to a national radio and television network. Can i file 1040x online An athletic program is considered an integral part of the educational process of a university. Can i file 1040x online   The educational purposes served by intercollegiate athletics are identical whether conducted directly by individual universities or by their regional athletic conference. Can i file 1040x online Also, the educational purposes served by exhibiting a game before an audience that is physically present and exhibiting the game on television or radio before a much larger audience are substantially similar. Can i file 1040x online Therefore, the sale of the broadcasting rights contributes importantly to the accomplishment of the organization's exempt purpose and is not an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online   In a similar situation, an exempt organization was created as a national governing body for amateur athletes to foster interest in amateur sports and to encourage widespread public participation. Can i file 1040x online The organization receives income each year from the sale of exclusive broadcasting rights to an independent producer, who contracts with a commercial network to broadcast many of the athletic events sponsored, supervised, and regulated by the organization. Can i file 1040x online   The broadcasting of these events promotes the various amateur sports, fosters widespread public interest in the benefits of the organization's nationwide amateur program, and encourages public participation. Can i file 1040x online The sale of the rights and the broadcasting of the events contribute importantly to the organization's exempt purpose. Can i file 1040x online Therefore, the sale of the exclusive broadcasting rights is not an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Yearbook advertising. Can i file 1040x online   An exempt organization receives income from the sale of advertising in its annual yearbook. Can i file 1040x online The organization hires an independent commercial firm, under a contract covering a full calendar year, to conduct an intensive advertising solicitation campaign in the organization's name. Can i file 1040x online This firm is paid a percentage of the gross advertising receipts for selling the advertising, collecting from advertisers, and printing the yearbook. Can i file 1040x online This advertising activity is an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Pet boarding and grooming services. Can i file 1040x online   An exempt organization, organized and operated for the prevention of cruelty to animals, receives unrelated business income from providing pet boarding and grooming services for the general public. Can i file 1040x online These activities do not contribute importantly to its purpose of preventing cruelty to animals. Can i file 1040x online Museum eating facilities. Can i file 1040x online   An exempt art museum operates a dining room, a cafeteria, and a snack bar for use by the museum staff, employees, and visitors. Can i file 1040x online Eating facilities in the museum help to attract visitors and allow them to spend more time viewing the museum's exhibits without having to seek outside restaurants at mealtime. Can i file 1040x online The eating facilities also allow the museum staff and employees to remain in the museum throughout the day. Can i file 1040x online Thus, the museum's operation of the eating facilities contributes importantly to the accomplishment of its exempt purposes and is not unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Halfway house workshop. Can i file 1040x online   A halfway house organized to provide room, board, therapy, and counseling for persons discharged from alcoholic treatment centers also operates a furniture shop to provide full-time employment for its residents. Can i file 1040x online The profits are applied to the operating costs of the halfway house. Can i file 1040x online The income from this venture is not unrelated trade or business income because the furniture shop contributes importantly to the organization's purpose of aiding its residents' transition from treatment to a normal and productive life. Can i file 1040x online Travel tour programs. Can i file 1040x online   Travel tour activities that are a trade or business are an unrelated trade or business if the activities are not substantially related to the purpose for which tax exemption was granted to the organization. Can i file 1040x online Example 1. Can i file 1040x online A tax-exempt university alumni association provides a travel tour program for its members and their families. Can i file 1040x online The organization works with various travel agencies and schedules approximately ten tours a year to various places around the world. Can i file 1040x online It mails out promotional material and accepts reservations for fees paid by the travel agencies on a per-person basis. Can i file 1040x online The organization provides an employee for each tour as a tour leader. Can i file 1040x online There is no formal educational program conducted with these tours, and they do not differ from regular commercially operated tours. Can i file 1040x online By providing travel tours to its members, the organization is engaging in a regularly conducted trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Even if the tours it offers support the university, financially and otherwise, and encourage alumni to do the same, they do not contribute importantly to the organization's exempt purpose of promoting education. Can i file 1040x online Therefore, the sale of the travel tours is an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Example 2. Can i file 1040x online A tax-exempt organization formed for the purpose of educating individuals about the geography and the culture of the United States provides study tours to national parks and other locations within the United States. Can i file 1040x online These tours are conducted by teachers and others certified by the state board of education. Can i file 1040x online The tours are primarily designed for students enrolled in degree programs at state educational institutions but are open to all who agree to participate in the required study program associated with the tour taken. Can i file 1040x online A tour's study program consists of instruction on subjects related to the location being visited on the tour. Can i file 1040x online Each tour group brings along a library of material related to the subjects being studied on the tour. Can i file 1040x online During the tour, 5 or 6 hours per day are devoted to organized study, preparation of reports, lectures, instruction, and recitation by the students. Can i file 1040x online Examinations are given at the end of each tour. Can i file 1040x online The state board of education awards academic credit for tour participation. Can i file 1040x online Because these tours are substantially related to the organization's exempt purpose, they are not an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Insurance programs. Can i file 1040x online   An organization that acts as a group insurance policyholder for its members and collects a fee for performing administrative services is normally carrying on an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Exceptions. Can i file 1040x online   Organizations whose exempt activities may include the provision of insurance benefits, such as fraternal beneficiary societies, voluntary employees beneficiary associations, and labor organizations, are generally exceptions to this rule. Can i file 1040x online Magazine publishing. Can i file 1040x online   An association of credit unions with tax-exempt status as a business league publishes a consumer-oriented magazine four times a year and makes it available to member credit unions for purchase. Can i file 1040x online   By selling a magazine to its members as a promotional device, the organization furnishes its members with a regular commercial service they can use in their own operations. Can i file 1040x online This service does not promote the improvement of business conditions of one or more lines of business, which is the exempt purpose of a business league. Can i file 1040x online   Since the activity does not contribute importantly to the organization's exempt function, it is an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Directory of members. Can i file 1040x online   A business league publishes an annual directory that contains a list of all its members, their addresses, and their area of expertise. Can i file 1040x online Each member has the same amount of space in the directory, and its format does not emphasize the relative importance or reputation of any member. Can i file 1040x online The directory contains no commercial advertisement and is sold only to the organization's members. Can i file 1040x online   The directory facilitates communication among the members and encourages the exchange of ideas and expertise. Can i file 1040x online Because the directory lists the members in a similar noncommercial format without advertising and is not distributed to the public, its sale does not confer private commercial benefits on the members. Can i file 1040x online The sale of the directory does contribute importantly to the organization's exempt purpose and is not an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online This directory differs from the publication discussed next because of its noncommercial characteristics. Can i file 1040x online Sales of advertising space. Can i file 1040x online   A national association of law enforcement officials publishes a monthly journal that contains articles and other editorial material of professional interest to its members. Can i file 1040x online The journal is distributed without charge, mainly to the organization's members. Can i file 1040x online   The organization sells advertising space in the journal either for conventional advertising or to merely identify the purchaser without a commercial message. Can i file 1040x online Some of the noncommercial advertising identifies the purchaser in a separate space, and some consists of listings of 60 or more purchasers per page. Can i file 1040x online A business firm identified in a separate space is further identified in an Index of Advertisers. Can i file 1040x online   The organization solicits advertising by personal contacts. Can i file 1040x online Advertising from large firms is solicited by contacting their chief executive officer or community relations officer rather than their advertising manager. Can i file 1040x online The organization also solicits advertising in form letters appealing for corporate and personal contributions. Can i file 1040x online   An exempt organization's sale of advertising placed for the purchaser's commercial benefit is a commercial activity. Can i file 1040x online Goodwill derived by the purchaser from being identified as a patron of the organization is usually considered a form of commercial benefit. Can i file 1040x online Therefore, advertising in an exempt organization's publication is generally presumed to be placed for the purchaser's commercial benefit, even if it has no commercial message. Can i file 1040x online However, this presumption is not conclusive if the purchaser's patronage would be difficult to justify commercially in view of the facts and circumstances. Can i file 1040x online In that case, other factors should also be considered in determining whether a commercial benefit can be expected. Can i file 1040x online Those other factors include: The normal manner in which the publication is circulated; The territorial scope of the circulation; The extent to which its readers, promoters, or the like could reasonably be expected to further, either directly or indirectly, the commercial interest of the advertisers; The eligibility of the publishing organization to receive tax-deductible contributions; and The commercial or noncommercial methods used to solicit the advertisers. Can i file 1040x online   In this situation, the purchaser of a separate advertising space without a commercial message can nevertheless expect a commercial benefit from the goodwill derived from being identified in that manner as a patron of the organization. Can i file 1040x online However, the purchaser of a listing cannot expect more than an inconsequential benefit. Can i file 1040x online Therefore, the sale of separate spaces, but not the listings, is an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Publishing legal notices. Can i file 1040x online   A bar association publishes a legal journal containing opinions of the county court, articles of professional interest to lawyers, advertisements for products and services used by the legal profession, and legal notices. Can i file 1040x online The legal notices are published to satisfy state laws requiring publication of notices in connection with legal proceedings, such as the administration of estates and actions to quiet title to real property. Can i file 1040x online The state designated the bar association's journal as the place to publish the required notices. Can i file 1040x online   The publication of ordinary commercial advertising does not advance the exempt purposes of the association even when published in a periodical that contains material related to exempt purposes. Can i file 1040x online Although the advertising is directed specifically to members of the legal profession, it is still commercial in nature and does not contribute importantly to the exempt purposes of the association. Can i file 1040x online Therefore, the advertising income is unrelated trade or business income. Can i file 1040x online   On the other hand, the publication of legal notices is distinguishable from ordinary commercial advertising in that its purpose is to inform the general public of significant legal events rather than to stimulate demand for the products or services of an advertiser. Can i file 1040x online This promotes the common interests of the legal profession and contributes importantly to the association's exempt purposes. Can i file 1040x online Therefore, the publishing of legal notices does not constitute an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Museum greeting card sales. Can i file 1040x online    An art museum that exhibits modern art sells greeting cards that display printed reproductions of selected works from other art collections. Can i file 1040x online Each card is imprinted with the name of the artist, the title or subject matter of the work, the date or period of its creation, if known, and the museum's name. Can i file 1040x online The cards contain appropriate greetings and are personalized on request. Can i file 1040x online   The organization sells the cards in the shop it operates in the museum and sells them at quantity discounts to retail stores. Can i file 1040x online It also sells them by mail order through a catalog that is advertised in magazines and other publications throughout the year. Can i file 1040x online As a result, a large number of cards are sold at a significant profit. Can i file 1040x online   The museum is exempt as an educational organization on the basis of its ownership, maintenance, and exhibition for public viewing of works of art. Can i file 1040x online The sale of greeting cards with printed reproductions of artworks contributes importantly to the achievement of the museum's exempt educational purposes by enhancing public awareness, interest, and appreciation of art. Can i file 1040x online The cards may encourage more people to visit the museum itself to share in its educational programs. Can i file 1040x online The fact that the cards are promoted and sold in a commercial manner at a profit and in competition with commercial greeting card publishers does not alter the fact that the activity is related to the museum's exempt purpose. Can i file 1040x online Therefore, these sales activities are not an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Museum shop. Can i file 1040x online   An art museum maintained and operated for the exhibition of American folk art operates a shop in the museum that sells: Reproductions of works in the museum's own collection and reproductions of artistic works from the collections of other art museums (prints suitable for framing, postcards, greeting cards, and slides); Metal, wood, and ceramic copies of American folk art objects from its own collection and similar copies of art objects from other collections of artworks; Instructional literature and scientific books and souvenir items concerning the history and development of art and, in particular, of American folk art; and Scientific books and souvenir items of the city in which the museum is located. Can i file 1040x online   The shop also rents originals or reproductions of paintings contained in its collection. Can i file 1040x online All of its reproductions are imprinted with the name of the artist, the title or subject matter of the work from which it is reproduced, and the museum's name. Can i file 1040x online   Each line of merchandise must be considered separately to determine if sales are related to the exempt purpose. Can i file 1040x online   The sale and rental of reproductions and copies of works from the museum's own collection and reproductions of artistic works not owned by the museum contribute importantly to the achievement of the museum's exempt educational purpose by making works of art familiar to a broader segment of the public, thereby enhancing the public's understanding and appreciation of art. Can i file 1040x online The same is true for the sale of literature relating to art. Can i file 1040x online Therefore, these sales activities are not an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online   On the other hand, the sale of scientific books and souvenir items of the city where the museum is located has no causal relationship to art or to artistic endeavor and, therefore, does not contribute importantly to the accomplishment of the museum's exempt educational purposes. Can i file 1040x online The fact that selling some of these items could, under different circumstances, be held related to the exempt educational purpose of some other exempt educational organization does not change this conclusion. Can i file 1040x online Additionally, the sale of these items does not lose its identity as a trade or business merely because the museum also sells articles which do contribute importantly to the accomplishment of its exempt function. Can i file 1040x online Therefore, these sales are an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Business league's parking and bus services. Can i file 1040x online   A business league, whose purpose is to retain and stimulate trade in a downtown area that has inadequate parking facilities, operates a fringe parking lot and shuttle bus service. Can i file 1040x online It also operates, as an insubstantial part of its activities, a park and shop plan. Can i file 1040x online   The fringe parking lot and shuttle bus service operate in a manner that does not favor any individual or group of downtown merchants. Can i file 1040x online The merchants cannot offer free or discount parking or bus fares to their customers. Can i file 1040x online   The park and shop plan allows customers of particular merchants to park free at certain parking lots in the area. Can i file 1040x online Merchants participating in this plan buy parking stamps, which they distribute to their customers to use to pay for parking. Can i file 1040x online   Operating the fringe parking lot and shuttle bus service provides easy and convenient access to the downtown area and, therefore, stimulates and improves business conditions in the downtown area generally. Can i file 1040x online That activity contributes importantly to the organization's accomplishing its exempt purpose and is not an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online   The park and shop plan encourages customers to use a limited number of participating member merchants in order to obtain free parking. Can i file 1040x online This provides a particular service to individual members of the organization and does not further its exempt purpose. Can i file 1040x online Therefore, operating the park and shop plan is an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Youth residence. Can i file 1040x online   An exempt organization, whose purpose is to provide for the welfare of young people, rents rooms primarily to people under age 25. Can i file 1040x online The residence units are operated on, and as a part of, the premises in which the organization carries on the social, recreational, and guidance programs for which it was recognized as exempt. Can i file 1040x online The facilities are under the management and supervision of trained career professionals who provide residents with personal counseling, physical education programs, and group recreational activities. Can i file 1040x online The rentals are not an unrelated trade or business because renting the rooms is substantially related to the organization's exempt purpose. Can i file 1040x online Health club program. Can i file 1040x online   An exempt charitable organization's purpose is to provide for the welfare of young people. Can i file 1040x online The organization conducts charitable activities and maintains facilities that will contribute to the physical, social, mental, and spiritual health of young people at minimum or no cost to them. Can i file 1040x online Nominal annual dues are charged for membership in the organization and use of the facilities. Can i file 1040x online   In addition, the organization organized a health club program that its members could join for an annual fee in addition to the annual dues. Can i file 1040x online The annual fee is comparable to fees charged by similar local commercial health clubs and is sufficiently high to restrict participation in the program to a limited number of members of the community. Can i file 1040x online   The health club program is in addition to the general physical fitness program of the organization. Can i file 1040x online Operating this program does not contribute importantly to the organization's accomplishing its exempt purpose and, therefore, is an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Miniature golf course. Can i file 1040x online   An exempt youth welfare organization operates a miniature golf course that is open to the general public. Can i file 1040x online The course, which is managed by salaried employees, is substantially similar to commercial courses. Can i file 1040x online The admission fees charged are comparable to fees of commercial facilities and are designed to return a profit. Can i file 1040x online   The operation of the miniature golf course in a commercial manner does not contribute importantly to the accomplishment of the organization's exempt purpose and, therefore, is an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Sales of hearing aids. Can i file 1040x online   A tax-exempt hospital, whose primary activity is rehabilitation, sells hearing aids to patients. Can i file 1040x online This activity is an essential part of the hospital's program to test and evaluate patients with hearing deficiencies and contributes importantly to its exempt purpose. Can i file 1040x online It is not an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Nonpatient laboratory testing. Can i file 1040x online   Nonpatient laboratory testing performed by a tax-exempt teaching hospital on specimens needed for the conduct of its teaching activities is not an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online However, laboratory testing performed by a tax-exempt non-teaching hospital on referred specimens from private office patients of staff physicians is an unrelated trade or business if these services are otherwise available in the community. Can i file 1040x online Selling endorsements. Can i file 1040x online   An exempt scientific organization enjoys an excellent reputation in the field of biological research. Can i file 1040x online It exploits this reputation regularly by selling endorsements of laboratory equipment to manufacturers. Can i file 1040x online Endorsing laboratory equipment does not contribute importantly to the accomplishment of any purpose for which exemption is granted to the organization. Can i file 1040x online Accordingly, the sale of endorsements is an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Sponsoring entertainment events. Can i file 1040x online   An exempt university has a regular faculty and a regularly enrolled student body. Can i file 1040x online During the school year, the university sponsors the appearance of professional theater companies and symphony orchestras that present drama and musical performances for the students and faculty members. Can i file 1040x online Members of the general public also are admitted. Can i file 1040x online The university advertises these performances and supervises advance ticket sales at various places, including such university facilities as the cafeteria and the university bookstore. Can i file 1040x online Although the presentation of the performances makes use of an intangible generated by the university's exempt educational functions—the presence of the student body and faculty—such drama and music events contribute importantly to the overall educational and cultural functions of the university. Can i file 1040x online Therefore, the activity is not an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Excluded Trade or Business Activities The following activities are specifically excluded from the definition of unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Volunteer workforce. Can i file 1040x online   Any trade or business in which substantially all the work is performed for the organization without compensation is not an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Example 1. Can i file 1040x online A retail store operated by an exempt orphanage where unpaid volunteers perform substantially all the work in carrying on the business is not an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Example 2. Can i file 1040x online A volunteer fire company conducts weekly public dances. Can i file 1040x online Holding public dances and charging admission on a regular basis may, given the facts and circumstances of a particular case, be considered an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online However, because the work at the dances is performed by unpaid volunteers, the activity is not an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Convenience of members. Can i file 1040x online   A trade or business conducted by a 501(c)(3) organization or by a governmental college or university primarily for the convenience of its members, students, patients, officers, or employees is not an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online For example, a laundry operated by a college for the purpose of laundering dormitory linens and students' clothing is not an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Qualified sponsorship activities. Can i file 1040x online   Soliciting and receiving qualified sponsorship payments is not an unrelated trade or business, and the payments are not subject to unrelated business income tax. Can i file 1040x online Qualified sponsorship payment. Can i file 1040x online   This is any payment made by a person engaged in a trade or business for which the person will receive no substantial benefit other than the use or acknowledgment of the business name, logo, or product lines in connection with the organization's activities. Can i file 1040x online “Use or acknowledgment” does not include advertising the sponsor's products or services. Can i file 1040x online The organization's activities include all its activities, whether or not related to its exempt purposes. Can i file 1040x online   For example, if, in return for receiving a sponsorship payment, an organization promises to use the sponsor's name or logo in acknowledging the sponsor's support for an educational or fundraising event, the payment is a qualified sponsorship payment and is not subject to the unrelated business income tax. Can i file 1040x online   Providing facilities, services, or other privileges (for example, complimentary tickets, pro-am playing spots in golf tournaments, or receptions for major donors) to a sponsor or the sponsor's designees in connection with a sponsorship payment does not affect whether the payment is a qualified sponsorship payment. Can i file 1040x online Instead, providing these goods or services is treated as a separate transaction in determining whether the organization has unrelated business income from the event. Can i file 1040x online Generally, if the services or facilities are not a substantial benefit or if providing them is a related business activity, the payments will not be subject to the unrelated business income tax. Can i file 1040x online   Similarly, the sponsor's receipt of a license to use an intangible asset (for example, a trademark, logo, or designation) of the organization is treated as separate from the qualified sponsorship transaction in determining whether the organization has unrelated business taxable income. Can i file 1040x online   If part of a payment would be a qualified sponsorship payment if paid separately, that part is treated as a separate payment. Can i file 1040x online For example, if a sponsorship payment entitles the sponsor to both product advertising and the use or acknowledgment of the sponsor's name or logo by the organization, then the unrelated business income tax does not apply to the part of the payment that is more than the fair market value of the product advertising. Can i file 1040x online Advertising. Can i file 1040x online   A payment is not a qualified sponsorship payment if, in return, the organization advertises the sponsor's products or services. Can i file 1040x online For information on the treatment of payments for advertising, see Exploitation of Exempt Activity—Advertising Sales in chapter 4. Can i file 1040x online   Advertising includes: Messages containing qualitative or comparative language, price information, or other indications of savings or value; Endorsements; and Inducements to purchase, sell, or use the products or services. Can i file 1040x online   The use of promotional logos or slogans that are an established part of the sponsor's identity is not, by itself, advertising. Can i file 1040x online In addition, mere distribution or display of a sponsor's product by the organization to the public at a sponsored event, whether for free or for remuneration, is considered use or acknowledgment of the product rather than advertising. Can i file 1040x online Exception for contingent payments. Can i file 1040x online   A payment is not a qualified sponsorship payment if its amount is contingent, by contract or otherwise, upon the level of attendance at one or more events, broadcast ratings, or other factors indicating the degree of public exposure to one or more events. Can i file 1040x online However, the fact that a sponsorship payment is contingent upon an event actually taking place or being broadcast does not, by itself, affect whether a payment qualifies. Can i file 1040x online Exception for periodicals. Can i file 1040x online   A payment is not a qualified sponsorship payment if it entitles the payer to the use or acknowledgment of the business name, logo, or product lines in the organization's periodical. Can i file 1040x online For this purpose, a periodical is any regularly scheduled and printed material (for example, a monthly journal) published by or on behalf of the organization. Can i file 1040x online It does not include material that is related to and primarily distributed in connection with a specific event conducted by the organization (for example, a program or brochure distributed at a sponsored event). Can i file 1040x online   The treatment of payments that entitle the payer to the depiction of the payer's name, logo, or products lines in an organization's periodical is determined under the rules that apply to advertising activities. Can i file 1040x online See Sales of advertising space under Examples, earlier in this chapter. Can i file 1040x online Also see Exploitation of Exempt Activity—Advertising Sales in chapter 4. Can i file 1040x online Exception for conventions and trade shows. Can i file 1040x online   A payment is not a qualified sponsorship payment if it is made in connection with any qualified convention or trade show activity. Can i file 1040x online The exclusion of qualified convention or trade show activities from the definition of unrelated trade or business is explained later under Convention or trade show activity. Can i file 1040x online Selling donated merchandise. Can i file 1040x online   A trade or business that consists of selling merchandise, substantially all of which the organization received as gifts or contributions, is not an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online For example, a thrift shop operated by a tax-exempt organization that sells donated clothes and books to the general public, with the proceeds going to the exempt organization, is not an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Employee association sales. Can i file 1040x online   The sale of certain items by a local association of employees described in section 501(c)(4), organized before May 17, 1969, is not an unrelated trade or business if the items are sold for the convenience of the association's members at their usual place of employment. Can i file 1040x online This exclusion applies only to the sale of work-related clothes and equipment and items normally sold through vending machines, food dispensing facilities, or by snack bars. Can i file 1040x online Bingo games. Can i file 1040x online   Certain bingo games are not included in the term “unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online ” To qualify for this exclusion, the bingo game must meet the following requirements. Can i file 1040x online It meets the legal definition of bingo. Can i file 1040x online It is legal where it is played. Can i file 1040x online It is played in a jurisdiction where bingo games are not regularly conducted by for-profit organizations. Can i file 1040x online Legal definition. Can i file 1040x online   For a game to meet the legal definition of bingo, wagers must be placed, winners must be determined, and prizes or other property must be distributed in the presence of all persons placing wagers in that game. Can i file 1040x online   A wagering game that does not meet the legal definition of bingo does not qualify for the exclusion, regardless of its name. Can i file 1040x online For example, “instant bingo,” in which a player buys a pre-packaged bingo card with pull-tabs that the player removes to determine if he or she is a winner, does not qualify. Can i file 1040x online Legal where played. Can i file 1040x online   This exclusion applies only if bingo is legal under the laws of the jurisdiction where it is conducted. Can i file 1040x online The fact that a jurisdiction's law that prohibits bingo is rarely enforced or is widely disregarded does not make the conduct of bingo legal for this purpose. Can i file 1040x online No for-profit games where played. Can i file 1040x online   This exclusion applies only if for-profit organizations cannot regularly conduct bingo games in any part of the same jurisdiction. Can i file 1040x online Jurisdiction is normally the entire state; however, in certain situations, local jurisdiction will control. Can i file 1040x online Example. Can i file 1040x online Tax-exempt organizations X and Y are organized under the laws of state N, which has a law that permits exempt organizations to conduct bingo games. Can i file 1040x online In addition, for-profit organizations are permitted to conduct bingo games in city S, a resort community located in county R. Can i file 1040x online Several for-profit organizations conduct nightly games. Can i file 1040x online Y conducts weekly bingo games in city S, while X conducts weekly games in county R. Can i file 1040x online Since state law confines the for-profit organizations to city S, local jurisdiction controls. Can i file 1040x online Y's bingo games conducted in city S are an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online However, X's bingo games conducted in county R outside of city S are not an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Gambling activities other than bingo. Can i file 1040x online   Any game of chance conducted by an exempt organization in North Dakota is not an unrelated trade or business if conducting the game does not violate any state or local law. Can i file 1040x online Pole rentals. Can i file 1040x online   The term unrelated trade or business does not include qualified pole rentals by a mutual or cooperative telephone or electric company described in section 501(c)(12). Can i file 1040x online A qualified pole rental is the rental of a pole (or other structure used to support wires) if the pole (or other structure) is used: By the telephone or electric company to support one or more wires that the company uses in providing telephone or electric services to its members, and According to the rental, to support one or more wires (in addition to the wires described in 1 ) for use in connection with the transmission by wire of electricity or of telephone or other communications. Can i file 1040x online For this purpose, the term rental includes any sale of the right to use the pole (or other structure). Can i file 1040x online Distribution of low cost articles. Can i file 1040x online   The term unrelated trade or business does not include activities relating to the distribution of low cost articles incidental to soliciting charitable contributions. Can i file 1040x online This applies to organizations described in section 501 that are eligible to receive charitable contributions. Can i file 1040x online   A distribution is considered incidental to the solicitation of a charitable contribution if: The recipient did not request the distribution, The distribution is made without the express consent of the recipient, and The article is accompanied by a request for a charitable contribution to the organization and a statement that the recipient may keep the low cost article regardless of whether a contribution is made. Can i file 1040x online   An article is considered low cost if the cost of an item (or the aggregate costs if more than one item) distributed to a single recipient in a tax year is not more than $5, indexed annually for inflation. Can i file 1040x online The maximum cost of a low cost article is $9. Can i file 1040x online 70 for 2011. Can i file 1040x online The cost of an article is the cost to the organization that distributes the item or on whose behalf it is distributed. Can i file 1040x online Exchange or rental of member lists. Can i file 1040x online   The exchange or rental of member or donor lists between organizations described in section 501 that are eligible to receive charitable contributions is not included in the term unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online Hospital services. Can i file 1040x online   The providing of certain services at or below cost by an exempt hospital to other exempt hospitals that have facilities for 100 or fewer inpatients is not an unrelated trade or business. Can i file 1040x online This exclusion applies only to services described in section 501(e)(1)(A). Can i file 1040x online Public entertainment activity. Can i file 1040x online   An unrelated trade or business does not include a qualified public entertainment activity. Can i file 1040x online A public entertainment activity is one traditionally conducted at a fair or exposition promoting agriculture and education, including any activity whose purpose is designed to attract the public to fairs or expositions or to promote the breeding of animals or the development of products or equipment. Can i file 1040x online   A qualified public entertainment activity is one conducted by a qualifying organization: In conjunction with an international, national, state, regional, or local fair or exposition; In accordance with state law that permits the activity to be operated or conducted solely by such an organization or by an agency, instrumentality, or political subdivision of the state; or In accordance with state law that permits an organization to be granted a license to conduct an activity for not more than 20 days on paying the state a lower percentage of the revenue from the activity than the state charges nonqualifying organizations that hold similar activities. Can i file 1040x online   For these purposes, a qualifying organization is an organization described in section 501(c)(3), 501(c)(4), or 501(c)(5) that regularly conducts an agricultural and educational fair or exposition as one of its substantial exempt purposes. Can i file 1040x online Its conducting qualified public entertainment activities will not affect determination of its exempt status. Can i file 1040x online Convention or trade show activity. Can i file 1040x online   An unrelated trade or business does not include qualified convention or trade show activities conducted at a convention, annual meeting, or trade show. Can i file 1040x online   A qualified convention or trade show activity is any activity of a kind traditionally conducted by a qualifying organization in conjunction with an international, national, state, regional, or local convention, annual meeting, or show if: One of the purposes of the organization in sponsoring the activity is promoting and stimulating interest in, and demand for, the products and services of that industry or educating the persons in attendance regarding new products and services or new rules and regulations affecting the industry; and The show is designed to achieve its purpose through the character of the exhibits and the extent of the industry products that are displayed. Can i file 1040x online   For these purposes, a qualifying organization is one described in section 501(c)(3), 501(c)(4), 501(c)(5), or 501(c)(6). Can i file 1040x online The organization must regularly conduct, as one of its substantial exempt purposes, a qualified convention or trade show activity. Can i file 1040x online   The rental of display space to exhibitors (including exhibitors who are suppliers) at a qualified convention or trade show is not an unrelated trade or business even if the exhibitors who rent the space are permitted to sell or solicit orders. Can i file 1040x online For this purpose, a supplier's exhibit is one in which the exhibitor displays goods or services that are supplied to, rather than by, members of the qualifying organization in the conduct of these members' own trades or businesses. Can i file 1040x online    Certain Internet activities conducted by a trade association described in section 501(c)(6) will be considered qualified convention and trade show activity if conducted on a special supplementary section of the association's website in conjunction with a trade show conducted by the association. Can i file 1040x online The trade show itself must be a qualified convention and trade show activity. Can i file 1040x online The supplementary section of the website must be ancillary to, and serve to augment and enhance, the trade show, as when it makes available the same information available at the trade show and is available only during a time period that coincides with the time period that the trade show is in operation. Can i file 1040x online Conversely, Internet activities that are not conducted in conjunction with a qualified convention and trade show activity and that do not augment and enhance the trade show cannot themselves be qualified convention and trade show activity.

Can i file 1040x online You started your business as a sole proprietor in 2013 and had a $42,000 NOL for the year. Can i file 1040x online No part of the NOL qualifies for the 3-year, 5-year, or 10-year carryback. Can i file 1040x online You begin using your NOL in 2011, the second year before the NOL year, as shown in the following chart. Can i file 1040x online Year   Carryback/  Carryover Unused  Loss 2011 $42,000 $40,000 2012 40,000 37,000 2013 (NOL year)     2014 37,000 31,500 2015 31,500 22,500 2016 22,500 12,700 2017 12,700 4,000 2018 4,000 -0- If your loss were larger, you could carry it forward until the year 2033. Can i file 1040x online If you still had an unused 2013 carryforward after the year 2033, you would not be allowed to deduct it. Can i file 1040x online Example 2.

Can i file 1040x online You begin using the $4,000 in 2010. Can i file 1040x online As shown in the following chart, $3,000 of this NOL is used in 2010. Can i file 1040x online The remaining $1,000 is carried to 2011 with the $38,000 NOL that you must begin using in 2011. Can i file 1040x online Year   Carryback/  Carryover Unused  Loss 2010 $4,000 $1,000 2011 39,000 37,000 2012 37,000 34,000 2013 (NOL year)     2014 34,000 28,500 2015 28,500 19,500 2016 19,500 9,700 2017 9,700 1,000 2018 1,000 -0- How To Claim an NOL Deduction If you have not already carried the NOL to an earlier year, your NOL deduction is the total NOL. Can i file 1040x online If you carried the NOL to an earlier year, your NOL deduction is the carried over NOL minus the NOL amount you used in the earlier year or years. Can i file 1040x online If you carry more than one NOL to the same year, your NOL deduction is the total of these carrybacks and carryovers. Can i file 1040x online NOL resulting in no taxable income.

Can i file 1040x online Form 1040X. Can i file 1040x online   If you do not file Form 1045, you can file Form 1040X to get a refund of tax because of an NOL carryback. Can i file 1040x online File Form 1040X within 3 years after the due date, including extensions, for filing the return for the NOL year. Can i file 1040x online For example, if you are a calendar year taxpayer and filed your 2011 return by the April 15, 2012, due date, you must file a claim for refund of 2008 tax because of an NOL carryback from 2011 by April 15, 2015.

Can i file 1040x online If you become eligible for a credit because of the carryback, complete the form for that specific credit (such as the EIC Worksheet) for that year. Can i file 1040x online   While it is necessary to refigure your income tax, alternative minimum tax, and credits, do not refigure your self-employment tax.

Can i file 1040x online Estates and trusts include an NOL deduction on Form 1041 with other deductions not subject to the 2% limit (line 15a for 2013). Can i file 1040x online You must attach a statement that shows all the important facts about the NOL.

Can i file 1040x online Change in Marital Status If you and your spouse were not married to each other in all years involved in figuring NOL carrybacks and carryovers, only the spouse who had the loss can take the NOL deduction. Can i file 1040x online If you file a joint return, the NOL deduction is limited to the income of that spouse. Can i file 1040x online For example, if your marital status changes because of death or divorce, and in a later year you have an NOL, you can carry back that loss only to the part of the income reported on the joint return (filed with your former spouse) that was related to your taxable income.

Can i file 1040x online Divide the amount in (1) by the amount in (3). Can i file 1040x online Multiply the refigured tax on your joint return by the amount figured in (4). Can i file 1040x online This is your share of the joint tax liability. Can i file 1040x online Figuring your contribution toward tax paid. Can i file 1040x online   Unless you have an agreement or clear evidence of each spouse's contributions toward the payment of the joint tax liability, figure your contribution by adding the tax withheld on your wages and your share of joint estimated tax payments or tax paid with the return. Can i file 1040x online If the original return for the carryback year resulted in an overpayment, reduce your contribution by your share of the tax refund. Can i file 1040x online Figure your share of a joint payment or refund by the same method used in figuring your share of the joint tax liability. Can i file 1040x online Use your taxable income as originally reported on the joint return in steps (1) and (2) above, and substitute the joint payment or refund for the refigured joint tax in step (5). Can i file 1040x online Change in Filing Status If you and your spouse were married and filed a joint return for each year involved in figuring NOL carrybacks and carryovers, figure the NOL deduction on a joint return as you would for an individual. Can i file 1040x online However, treat the NOL deduction as a joint NOL. Can i file 1040x online If you and your spouse were married and filed separate returns for each year involved in figuring NOL carrybacks and carryovers, the spouse who sustained the loss may take the NOL deduction on a separate return. Can i file 1040x online Special rules apply for figuring the NOL carrybacks and carryovers of married people whose filing status changes for any tax year involved in figuring an NOL carryback or carryover. Can i file 1040x online Separate to joint return. Can i file 1040x online   If you and your spouse file a joint return for a carryback or carryforward year, and were married but filed separate returns for any of the tax years involved in figuring the NOL carryback or carryover, treat the separate carryback or carryover as a joint carryback or carryover. Can i file 1040x online Joint to separate returns. Can i file 1040x online   If you and your spouse file separate returns for a carryback or carryforward year, but filed a joint return for any or all of the tax years involved in figuring the NOL carryover, figure each of your carryovers separately. Can i file 1040x online Joint return in NOL year. Can i file 1040x online   Figure each spouse's share of the joint NOL through the following steps. Can i file 1040x online Figure each spouse's NOL as if he or she filed a separate return. Can i file 1040x online See How To Figure an NOL , earlier. Can i file 1040x online If only one spouse has an NOL, stop here. Can i file 1040x online All of the joint NOL is that spouse's NOL. Can i file 1040x online If both spouses have an NOL, multiply the joint NOL by a fraction, the numerator of which is spouse A's NOL figured in (1) and the denominator of which is the total of the spouses' NOLs figured in (1). Can i file 1040x online The result is spouse A's share of the joint NOL. Can i file 1040x online The rest of the joint NOL is spouse B's share. Can i file 1040x online Example 1. Can i file 1040x online Mark and Nancy are married and file a joint return for 2013. Can i file 1040x online They have an NOL of $5,000. Can i file 1040x online They carry the NOL back to 2011, a year in which Mark and Nancy filed separate returns. Can i file 1040x online Figured separately, Nancy's 2013 deductions were more than her income, and Mark's income was more than his deductions. Can i file 1040x online Mark does not have any NOL to carry back. Can i file 1040x online Nancy can carry back the entire $5,000 NOL to her 2011 separate return. Can i file 1040x online Example 2. Can i file 1040x online Assume the same facts as in Example 1 , except that both Mark and Nancy had deductions in 2013 that were more than their income. Can i file 1040x online Figured separately, his NOL is $1,800 and her NOL is $3,000. Can i file 1040x online The sum of their separate NOLs ($4,800) is less than their $5,000 joint NOL because his deductions included a $200 net capital loss that is not allowed in figuring his separate NOL. Can i file 1040x online The loss is allowed in figuring their joint NOL because it was offset by Nancy's capital gains. Can i file 1040x online Mark's share of their $5,000 joint NOL is $1,875 ($5,000 × $1,800/$4,800) and Nancy's is $3,125 ($5,000 − $1,875). Can i file 1040x online Joint return in previous carryback or carryforward year. Can i file 1040x online   If only one spouse had an NOL deduction on the previous year's joint return, all of the joint carryover is that spouse's carryover. Can i file 1040x online If both spouses had an NOL deduction (including separate carryovers of a joint NOL, figured as explained in the previous discussion ), figure each spouse's share of the joint carryover through the following steps. Can i file 1040x online Figure each spouse's modified taxable income as if he or she filed a separate return. Can i file 1040x online See Modified taxable income under How To Figure an NOL Carryover , later. Can i file 1040x online Multiply the joint modified taxable income you used to figure the joint carryover by a fraction, the numerator of which is spouse A's modified taxable income figured in (1) and the denominator of which is the total of the spouses' modified taxable incomes figured in (1). Can i file 1040x online This is spouse A's share of the joint modified taxable income. Can i file 1040x online Subtract the amount figured in (2) from the joint modified taxable income. Can i file 1040x online This is spouse B's share of the joint modified taxable income. Can i file 1040x online Reduce the amount figured in (3), but not below zero, by spouse B's NOL deduction. Can i file 1040x online Add the amounts figured in (2) and (4). Can i file 1040x online Subtract the amount figured in (5) from spouse A's NOL deduction. Can i file 1040x online This is spouse A's share of the joint carryover. Can i file 1040x online The rest of the joint carryover is spouse B's share. Can i file 1040x online Example. Can i file 1040x online Sam and Wanda filed a joint return for 2011 and separate returns for 2012 and 2013. Can i file 1040x online In 2013, Sam had an NOL of $18,000 and Wanda had an NOL of $2,000. Can i file 1040x online They choose to carry back both NOLs 2 years to their 2011 joint return and claim a $20,000 NOL deduction. Can i file 1040x online Their joint modified taxable income (MTI) for 2011 is $15,000, and their joint NOL carryover to 2012 is $5,000 ($20,000 – $15,000). Can i file 1040x online Sam and Wanda each figure their separate MTI for 2011 as if they had filed separate returns. Can i file 1040x online Then they figure their shares of the $5,000 carryover as follows. Can i file 1040x online Step 1. Can i file 1040x online   Sam's separate MTI $9,000 Wanda's separate MTI + 3,000 Total MTI $12,000 Step 2. Can i file 1040x online   Joint MTI $15,000 Sam's MTI ÷ total MTI ($9,000 ÷ $12,000) × .

Can i file 1040x online   Wanda's share of joint MTI $3,750 Wanda's NOL deduction − 2,000 Wanda's remaining share $1,750 Step 5. Can i file 1040x online   Sam's share of joint MTI $11,250 Wanda's remaining share + 1,750 Joint MTI to be offset $13,000 Step 6. Can i file 1040x online   Sam's NOL deduction $18,000 Joint MTI to be offset − 13,000 Sam's carryover to 2012 $5,000 Joint carryover to 2012 $5,000 Sam's carryover − 5,000 Wanda's carryover to 2012 $-0- Wanda's $2,000 NOL deduction offsets $2,000 of her $3,750 share of the joint modified taxable income and is completely used up. Can i file 1040x online She has no carryover to 2012. Can i file 1040x online Sam's $18,000 NOL deduction offsets all of his $11,250 share of joint modified taxable income and the remaining $1,750 of Wanda's share. Can i file 1040x online His carryover to 2012 is $5,000.

Can i file 1040x online Form 1045, page 1 How To Figure an NOL Carryover If your NOL is more than your taxable income for the year to which you carry it (figured before deducting the NOL), you may have an NOL carryover. Can i file 1040x online You must make certain modifications to your taxable income to determine how much NOL you will use up in that year and how much you can carry over to the next tax year. Can i file 1040x online Your carryover is the excess of your NOL deduction over your modified taxable income for the carryback or carryforward year. Can i file 1040x online If your NOL deduction includes more than one NOL, apply the NOLs against your modified taxable income in the same order in which you incurred them, starting with the earliest. Can i file 1040x online Modified taxable income. Can i file 1040x online   Your modified taxable income is your taxable income figured with the following changes. Can i file 1040x online You cannot claim an NOL deduction for the NOL carryover you are figuring or for any later NOL. Can i file 1040x online You cannot claim a deduction for capital losses in excess of your capital gains. Can i file 1040x online Also, you must increase your taxable income by the amount of any section 1202 exclusion. Can i file 1040x online You cannot claim the domestic production activities deduction. Can i file 1040x online You cannot claim a deduction for your exemptions for yourself, your spouse, or dependents. Can i file 1040x online You must figure any item affected by the amount of your adjusted gross income after making the changes in (1), (2), and (3), above, and certain other changes to your adjusted gross income that result from (1), (2), and (3). Can i file 1040x online This includes income and deduction items used to figure adjusted gross income (for example, IRA deductions), as well as certain itemized deductions. Can i file 1040x online To figure a charitable contribution deduction, do not include deductions for NOL carrybacks in the change in (1) but do include deductions for NOL carryforwards from tax years before the NOL year. Can i file 1040x online   Your taxable income as modified cannot be less than zero. Can i file 1040x online Form 1045, Schedule B. Can i file 1040x online   You can use Form 1045, Schedule B, to figure your modified taxable income for carryback years and your carryover from each of those years. Can i file 1040x online Do not use Form 1045, Schedule B, for a carryforward year. Can i file 1040x online If your 2013 return includes an NOL deduction from an NOL year before 2013 that reduced your taxable income to zero (to less than zero, if an estate or trust), see NOL Carryover From 2013 to 2014 , later. Can i file 1040x online Illustrated Form 1045, Schedule B The following example illustrates how to figure an NOL carryover from a carryback year.
