Clues fill 1040x form Ordinary gain is taxed at the same rates as wages and interest income while capital gain is generally taxed at lower rates. Clues fill 1040x form Dispositions discussed in this chapter include sales, exchanges, foreclosures, repossessions, canceled debts, hedging transactions, and elections to treat cutting of timber as a sale or exchange.

Clues fill 1040x form Sales and Exchanges If you sell, exchange, or otherwise dispose of your property, you usually have a gain or a loss. Clues fill 1040x form This section explains certain rules for determining whether any gain you have is taxable, and whether any loss you have is deductible. Clues fill 1040x form A sale is a transfer of property for money or a mortgage, note, or other promise to pay money. Clues fill 1040x form An exchange is a transfer of property for other property or services. Clues fill 1040x form Determining Gain or Loss You usually realize a gain or loss when you sell or exchange property. Clues fill 1040x form If the amount you realize from a sale or exchange of property is more than its adjusted basis, you will have a gain. Clues fill 1040x form If the adjusted basis of the property is more than the amount you realize, you will have a loss. Clues fill 1040x form Basis and adjusted basis. Clues fill 1040x form   The basis of property you buy is usually its cost. Clues fill 1040x form The adjusted basis of property is basis plus certain additions and minus certain deductions. Clues fill 1040x form See chapter 6 for more information about basis and adjusted basis. Clues fill 1040x form Amount realized. Clues fill 1040x form   The amount you realize from a sale or exchange is the total of all money you receive plus the fair market value (FMV) (defined in chapter 6) of all property or services you receive. Clues fill 1040x form The amount you realize also includes any of your liabilities assumed by the buyer and any liabilities to which the property you transferred is subject, such as real estate taxes or a mortgage. Clues fill 1040x form   If the liabilities relate to an exchange of multiple properties, see Multiple Property Exchanges in chapter 1 of Publication 544. Clues fill 1040x form Amount recognized. Clues fill 1040x form   Your gain or loss realized from a sale or exchange of certain property is usually a recognized gain or loss for tax purposes. Clues fill 1040x form A recognized gain is a gain you must include in gross income and report on your income tax return. Clues fill 1040x form A recognized loss is a loss you deduct from gross income. Clues fill 1040x form However, your gain or loss realized from the exchange of certain property may not be recognized for tax purposes. Clues fill 1040x form See Like-Kind Exchanges next. Clues fill 1040x form Also, a loss from the disposition of property held for personal use is not deductible. Clues fill 1040x form Like-Kind Exchanges Certain exchanges of property are not taxable. Clues fill 1040x form This means any gain from the exchange is not recognized, and any loss cannot be deducted. Clues fill 1040x form Your gain or loss will not be recognized until you sell or otherwise dispose of the property you receive. Clues fill 1040x form The exchange of property for the same kind of property is the most common type of nontaxable exchange. Clues fill 1040x form To qualify for treatment as a like-kind exchange, the property traded and the property received must be both of the following. Clues fill 1040x form Qualifying property. Clues fill 1040x form Like-kind property. Clues fill 1040x form These two requirements are discussed later. Clues fill 1040x form Multiple-party transactions. Clues fill 1040x form   The like-kind exchange rules also apply to property exchanges that involve three and four-party transactions. Clues fill 1040x form Any part of these multiple-party transactions can qualify as a like-kind exchange if it meets all the requirements described in this section. Clues fill 1040x form Receipt of title from third party. Clues fill 1040x form   If you receive property in a like-kind exchange and the other party who transfers the property to you does not give you the title, but a third party does, you can still treat this transaction as a like-kind exchange if it meets all the requirements. Clues fill 1040x form Basis of property received. Clues fill 1040x form   If you receive property in a like-kind exchange, the basis of the property will be the same as the basis of the property you gave up. Clues fill 1040x form See chapter 6 for more information. Clues fill 1040x form Money paid. Clues fill 1040x form   If, in addition to giving up like-kind property, you pay money in a like-kind exchange, you still have no recognized gain or loss. Clues fill 1040x form The basis of the property received is the basis of the property given up, increased by the money paid. Clues fill 1040x form Example. Clues fill 1040x form You traded an old tractor with an adjusted basis of $15,000 for a new one. Clues fill 1040x form The new tractor costs $300,000. Clues fill 1040x form You were allowed $80,000 for the old tractor and paid $220,000 cash. Clues fill 1040x form You have no recognized gain or loss on the transaction regardless of the adjusted basis of your old tractor and the basis of the new tractor is $235,000, the adjusted basis of the old tractor plus the cash paid ($15,000 + $220,000). Clues fill 1040x form If you had sold the old tractor to a third party for $80,000 and bought a new one, you would have a recognized gain or loss on the sale of your old tractor equal to the difference between the amount realized and the adjusted basis of the old tractor. Clues fill 1040x form In this case, the taxable gain would be $65,000 ($80,000 − $15,000) and the basis of the new tractor would be $300,000. Clues fill 1040x form Reporting the exchange. Clues fill 1040x form   Report the exchange of like-kind property, even though no gain or loss is recognized, on Form 8824, Like-Kind Exchanges. Clues fill 1040x form The Instructions for Form 8824 explain how to report the details of the exchange. Clues fill 1040x form   If you have any recognized gain because you received money or unlike property, report it on Schedule D (Form 1040) or Form 4797, whichever applies. Clues fill 1040x form You may also have to report the recognized gain as ordinary income because of depreciation recapture on Form 4797. Clues fill 1040x form See chapter 9 for more information. Clues fill 1040x form Qualifying property. Clues fill 1040x form   In a like-kind exchange, both the property you give up and the property you receive must be held by you for investment or for productive use in your trade or business. Clues fill 1040x form Machinery, buildings, land, trucks, breeding livestock, rental houses, and certain mutual ditch, reservoir, or irrigation company stock are examples of property that may qualify. Clues fill 1040x form Nonqualifying property. Clues fill 1040x form   The rules for like-kind exchanges do not apply to exchanges of the following property. Clues fill 1040x form Property you use for personal purposes, such as your home and family car. Clues fill 1040x form Stock in trade or other property held primarily for sale, such as crops and produce. Clues fill 1040x form Stocks, bonds, or notes. Clues fill 1040x form However, see Qualifying property above. Clues fill 1040x form Other securities or evidences of indebtedness, such as accounts receivable. Clues fill 1040x form Partnership interests. Clues fill 1040x form However, you may have a nontaxable exchange under other rules. Clues fill 1040x form See Other Nontaxable Exchanges in chapter 1 of Publication 544. Clues fill 1040x form Like-kind property. Clues fill 1040x form   To qualify as a nontaxable exchange, the properties exchanged must be of like kind. Clues fill 1040x form Like-kind properties are properties of the same nature or character, even if they differ in grade or quality. Clues fill 1040x form Generally, real property exchanged for real property qualifies as an exchange of like-kind property. Clues fill 1040x form For example, an exchange of city property for farm property or improved property for unimproved property is a like-kind exchange. Clues fill 1040x form   An exchange of a tractor for a new tractor is an exchange of like-kind property, and so is an exchange of timber land for crop acreage. Clues fill 1040x form An exchange of a tractor for acreage, however, is not an exchange of like-kind property. Clues fill 1040x form The exchange of livestock of one sex for livestock of the other sex is not a like-kind exchange. Clues fill 1040x form For example, the exchange of a bull for a cow is not a like-kind exchange. Clues fill 1040x form An exchange of the assets of a business for the assets of a similar business cannot be treated as an exchange of one property for another property. Clues fill 1040x form    Note. Clues fill 1040x form Whether you engaged in a like-kind exchange depends on an analysis of each asset involved in the exchange. Clues fill 1040x form Personal property. Clues fill 1040x form   Depreciable tangible personal property can be either like kind or like class to qualify for nontaxable exchange treatment. Clues fill 1040x form Like-class properties are depreciable tangible personal properties within the same General Asset Class or Product Class. Clues fill 1040x form Property classified in any General Asset Class may not be classified within a Product Class. Clues fill 1040x form Assets that are not in the same class will qualify as like-kind property if they are of the same nature or character. Clues fill 1040x form General Asset Classes. Clues fill 1040x form   General Asset Classes describe the types of property frequently used in many businesses. Clues fill 1040x form They include, but are not limited to, the following property. Clues fill 1040x form Office furniture, fixtures, and equipment (asset class 00. Clues fill 1040x form 11). Clues fill 1040x form Information systems, such as computers and peripheral equipment (asset class 00. Clues fill 1040x form 12). Clues fill 1040x form Data handling equipment except computers (asset class 00. Clues fill 1040x form 13). Clues fill 1040x form Automobiles and taxis (asset class 00. Clues fill 1040x form 22). Clues fill 1040x form Light general purpose trucks (asset class 00. Clues fill 1040x form 241). Clues fill 1040x form Heavy general purpose trucks (asset class 00. Clues fill 1040x form 242). Clues fill 1040x form Tractor units for use over-the-road (asset class 00. Clues fill 1040x form 26). Clues fill 1040x form Trailers and trailer-mounted containers (asset class 00. Clues fill 1040x form 27). Clues fill 1040x form Industrial steam and electric generation and/or distribution systems (asset class 00. Clues fill 1040x form 4). Clues fill 1040x form Product Classes. Clues fill 1040x form   Product Classes include property listed in a 6-digit product class in sectors 31 through 33 of the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) of the Executive Office of the President, Office of Management and Budget, United States, (NAICS Manual). Clues fill 1040x form The latest version of the manual can be accessed at www. Clues fill 1040x form census. Clues fill 1040x form gov/eos/www/naics/. Clues fill 1040x form Copies of the printed manual may be purchased from the National Technical Information Service (NTIS) at  www. Clues fill 1040x form ntis. Clues fill 1040x form gov/products/naics. Clues fill 1040x form aspx or by calling 1-800-553-NTIS (1-800-553-6847) or (703) 605-6000. Clues fill 1040x form A CD-ROM version with search and retrieval software is also available from NTIS. Clues fill 1040x form    NAICS class 333111, Farm Machinery and Equipment Manufacturing, includes most machinery and equipment used in a farming business. Clues fill 1040x form Partially nontaxable exchange. Clues fill 1040x form   If, in addition to like-kind property, you receive money or unlike property in an exchange on which you realize gain, you have a partially nontaxable exchange. Clues fill 1040x form You are taxed on the gain you realize, but only to the extent of the money and the FMV of the unlike property you receive. Clues fill 1040x form A loss is not deductible. Clues fill 1040x form Example 1. Clues fill 1040x form You trade farmland that cost $30,000 for $10,000 cash and other land to be used in farming with a FMV of $50,000. Clues fill 1040x form You have a realized gain of $30,000 ($50,000 FMV of new land + $10,000 cash − $30,000 basis of old farmland = $30,000 realized gain). Clues fill 1040x form However, only $10,000, the cash received, is recognized (included in income). Clues fill 1040x form Example 2. Clues fill 1040x form Assume the same facts as in Example 1, except that, instead of money, you received a tractor with a FMV of $10,000. Clues fill 1040x form Your recognized gain is still limited to $10,000, the value of the tractor (the unlike property). Clues fill 1040x form Example 3. Clues fill 1040x form Assume in Example 1 that the FMV of the land you received was only $15,000. Clues fill 1040x form Your $5,000 loss is not recognized. Clues fill 1040x form Unlike property given up. Clues fill 1040x form   If, in addition to like-kind property, you give up unlike property, you must recognize gain or loss on the unlike property you give up. Clues fill 1040x form The gain or loss is the difference between the FMV of the unlike property and the adjusted basis of the unlike property. Clues fill 1040x form Like-kind exchanges between related persons. Clues fill 1040x form   Special rules apply to like-kind exchanges between related persons. Clues fill 1040x form These rules affect both direct and indirect exchanges. Clues fill 1040x form Under these rules, if either person disposes of the property within 2 years after the exchange, the exchange is disqualified from nonrecognition treatment. Clues fill 1040x form The gain or loss on the original exchange must be recognized as of the date of the later disposition. Clues fill 1040x form The 2-year holding period begins on the date of the last transfer of property that was part of the like-kind exchange. Clues fill 1040x form Related persons. Clues fill 1040x form   Under these rules, related persons include, for example, you and a member of your family (spouse, brother, sister, parent, child, etc. Clues fill 1040x form ), you and a corporation in which you have more than 50% ownership, you and a partnership in which you directly or indirectly own more than a 50% interest of the capital or profits, and two partnerships in which you directly or indirectly own more than 50% of the capital interests or profits. Clues fill 1040x form   For the complete list of related persons, see Related persons in chapter 2 of Publication 544. Clues fill 1040x form Example. Clues fill 1040x form You used a grey pickup truck in your farming business. Clues fill 1040x form Your sister used a red pickup truck in her landscaping business. Clues fill 1040x form In December 2012, you exchanged your grey pickup truck, plus $200, for your sister's red pickup truck. Clues fill 1040x form At that time, the FMV of the grey pickup truck was $7,000 and its adjusted basis was $6,000. Clues fill 1040x form The FMV of the red pickup truck was $7,200 and its adjusted basis was $1,000. Clues fill 1040x form You realized a gain of $1,000 (the $7,200 FMV of the red pickup truck, minus the grey pickup truck's $6,000 adjusted basis, minus the $200 you paid). Clues fill 1040x form Your sister realized a gain of $6,200 (the $7,000 FMV of the grey pickup truck plus the $200 you paid, minus the $1,000 adjusted basis of the red pickup truck). Clues fill 1040x form However, because this was a like-kind exchange, you recognized no gain. Clues fill 1040x form Your basis in the red pickup truck was $6,200 (the $6,000 adjusted basis of the grey pickup truck plus the $200 you paid). Clues fill 1040x form She recognized gain only to the extent of the money she received, $200. Clues fill 1040x form Her basis in the grey pickup truck was $1,000 (the $1,000 adjusted basis of the red pickup truck minus the $200 received, plus the $200 gain recognized). Clues fill 1040x form In 2013, you sold the red pickup truck to a third party for $7,000. Clues fill 1040x form Because you sold it within 2 years after the exchange, the exchange is disqualified from nonrecognition treatment. Clues fill 1040x form On your tax return for 2013, you must report your $1,000 gain on the 2012 exchange. Clues fill 1040x form You also report a loss on the sale as $200 (the adjusted basis of the red pickup truck, $7,200 (its $6,200 basis plus the $1,000 gain recognized), minus the $7,000 realized from the sale). Clues fill 1040x form In addition, your sister must report on her tax return for 2013 the $6,000 balance of her gain on the 2012 exchange. Clues fill 1040x form Her adjusted basis in the grey pickup truck is increased to $7,000 (its $1,000 basis plus the $6,000 gain recognized). Clues fill 1040x form Exceptions to the rules for related persons. Clues fill 1040x form   The following property dispositions are excluded from these rules. Clues fill 1040x form Dispositions due to the death of either related person. Clues fill 1040x form Involuntary conversions. Clues fill 1040x form Dispositions where it is established to the satisfaction of the IRS that neither the exchange nor the disposition has, as a main purpose, the avoidance of federal income tax. Clues fill 1040x form Multiple property exchanges. Clues fill 1040x form   Under the like-kind exchange rules, you must generally make a property-by-property comparison to figure your recognized gain and the basis of the property you receive in the exchange. Clues fill 1040x form However, for exchanges of multiple properties, you do not make a property-by-property comparison if you do either of the following. Clues fill 1040x form Transfer and receive properties in two or more exchange groups. Clues fill 1040x form Transfer or receive more than one property within a single exchange group. Clues fill 1040x form   For more information, see Multiple Property Exchanges in chapter 1 of Publication 544. Clues fill 1040x form Deferred exchange. Clues fill 1040x form   A deferred exchange for like-kind property may qualify for nonrecognition of gain or loss. Clues fill 1040x form A deferred exchange is an exchange in which you transfer property you use in business or hold for investment and later receive like-kind property you will use in business or hold for investment. Clues fill 1040x form The property you receive is replacement property. Clues fill 1040x form The transaction must be an exchange of property for property rather than a transfer of property for money used to buy replacement property. Clues fill 1040x form In addition, the replacement property will not be treated as like-kind property unless certain identification and receipt requirements are met. Clues fill 1040x form   For more information see Deferred Exchanges in chapter 1 of Publication 544. Clues fill 1040x form Transfer to Spouse No gain or loss is recognized on a transfer of property from an individual to (or in trust for the benefit of) a spouse, or a former spouse if incident to divorce. Clues fill 1040x form This rule does not apply if the recipient is a nonresident alien. Clues fill 1040x form Nor does this rule apply to a transfer in trust to the extent the liabilities assumed and the liabilities on the property are more than the property's adjusted basis. Clues fill 1040x form Any transfer of property to a spouse or former spouse on which gain or loss is not recognized is not considered a sale or exchange. Clues fill 1040x form The recipient's basis in the property will be the same as the adjusted basis of the giver immediately before the transfer. Clues fill 1040x form This carryover basis rule applies whether the adjusted basis of the transferred property is less than, equal to, or greater than either its FMV at the time of transfer or any consideration paid by the recipient. Clues fill 1040x form This rule applies for determining loss as well as gain. Clues fill 1040x form Any gain recognized on a transfer in trust increases the basis. Clues fill 1040x form For more information on transfers of property incident to divorce, see Property Settlements in Publication 504, Divorced or Separated Individuals. Clues fill 1040x form Ordinary or Capital Gain or Loss Generally, you will have a capital gain or loss if you sell or exchange a capital asset (defined below). Clues fill 1040x form You may also have a capital gain if your section 1231 transactions result in a net gain. Clues fill 1040x form See Section 1231 Gains and Losses in  chapter 9. Clues fill 1040x form To figure your net capital gain or loss, you must classify your gains and losses as either ordinary or capital (and your capital gains or losses as either short-term or long-term). Clues fill 1040x form Your net capital gains may be taxed at a lower tax rate than ordinary income. Clues fill 1040x form See Capital Gains Tax Rates , later. Clues fill 1040x form Your deduction for a net capital loss may be limited. Clues fill 1040x form See Treatment of Capital Losses , later. Clues fill 1040x form Capital Assets Almost everything you own and use for personal purposes or investment is a capital asset. Clues fill 1040x form The following items are examples of capital assets. Clues fill 1040x form A home owned and occupied by you and your family. Clues fill 1040x form Household furnishings. Clues fill 1040x form A car used for pleasure. Clues fill 1040x form If your car is used both for pleasure and for farm business, it is partly a capital asset and partly a noncapital asset, defined later. Clues fill 1040x form Stocks and bonds. Clues fill 1040x form However, there are special rules for gains on qualified small business stock. Clues fill 1040x form For more information on this subject, see Gains on Qualified Small Business Stock and Losses on Section 1244 (Small Business) Stock in chapter 4 of Publication 550. Clues fill 1040x form Personal-use property. Clues fill 1040x form   Gain from a sale or exchange of personal-use property is a capital gain and is taxable. Clues fill 1040x form Loss from the sale or exchange of personal-use property is not deductible. Clues fill 1040x form You can deduct a loss relating to personal-use property only if it results from a casualty or theft. Clues fill 1040x form For information on casualties and thefts, see chapter 11. Clues fill 1040x form Long and Short Term Where you report a capital gain or loss depends on how long you own the asset before you sell or exchange it. Clues fill 1040x form The time you own an asset before disposing of it is the holding period. Clues fill 1040x form If you hold a capital asset 1 year or less, the gain or loss resulting from its disposition is short term. Clues fill 1040x form Report it in Part I of Schedule D (Form 1040). Clues fill 1040x form If you hold a capital asset longer than 1 year, the gain or loss resulting from its disposition is long term. Clues fill 1040x form Report it in Part II of Schedule D (Form 1040). Clues fill 1040x form Holding period. Clues fill 1040x form   To figure if you held property longer than 1 year, start counting on the day after the day you acquired the property. Clues fill 1040x form The day you disposed of the property is part of your holding period. Clues fill 1040x form Example. Clues fill 1040x form If you bought an asset on June 19, 2012, you should start counting on June 20, 2012. Clues fill 1040x form If you sold the asset on June 19, 2013, your holding period is not longer than 1 year, but if you sold it on June 20, 2013, your holding period is longer than 1 year. Clues fill 1040x form Inherited property. Clues fill 1040x form   If you inherit property, you are considered to have held the property longer than 1 year, regardless of how long you actually held it. Clues fill 1040x form This rule does not apply to livestock used in a farm business. Clues fill 1040x form See Holding period under Livestock , later. Clues fill 1040x form Nonbusiness bad debt. Clues fill 1040x form   A nonbusiness bad debt is a short-term capital loss, deductible in the year the debt becomes worthless. Clues fill 1040x form See chapter 4 of Publication 550. Clues fill 1040x form Nontaxable exchange. Clues fill 1040x form   If you acquire an asset in exchange for another asset and your basis for the new asset is figured, in whole or in part, by using your basis in the old property, the holding period of the new property includes the holding period of the old property. Clues fill 1040x form That is, it begins on the same day as your holding period for the old property. Clues fill 1040x form Gift. Clues fill 1040x form   If you receive a gift of property and your basis in it is figured using the donor's basis, your holding period includes the donor's holding period. Clues fill 1040x form Real property. Clues fill 1040x form   To figure how long you held real property, start counting on the day after you received title to it or, if earlier, on the day after you took possession of it and assumed the burdens and privileges of ownership. Clues fill 1040x form   However, taking possession of real property under an option agreement is not enough to start the holding period. Clues fill 1040x form The holding period cannot start until there is an actual contract of sale. Clues fill 1040x form The holding period of the seller cannot end before that time. Clues fill 1040x form Figuring Net Gain or Loss The totals for short-term capital gains and losses and the totals for long-term capital gains and losses must be figured separately. Clues fill 1040x form Net short-term capital gain or loss. Clues fill 1040x form   Combine your short-term capital gains and losses. Clues fill 1040x form Do this by adding all of your short-term capital gains. Clues fill 1040x form Then add all of your short-term capital losses. Clues fill 1040x form Subtract the lesser total from the greater. Clues fill 1040x form The difference is your net short-term capital gain or loss. Clues fill 1040x form Net long-term capital gain or loss. Clues fill 1040x form   Follow the same steps to combine your long-term capital gains and losses. Clues fill 1040x form The result is your net long-term capital gain or loss. Clues fill 1040x form Net gain. Clues fill 1040x form   If the total of your capital gains is more than the total of your capital losses, the difference is taxable. Clues fill 1040x form However, part of your gain (but not more than your net capital gain) may be taxed at a lower rate than the rate of tax on your ordinary income. Clues fill 1040x form See Capital Gains Tax Rates , later. Clues fill 1040x form Net loss. Clues fill 1040x form   If the total of your capital losses is more than the total of your capital gains, the difference is deductible. Clues fill 1040x form But there are limits on how much loss you can deduct and when you can deduct it. Clues fill 1040x form See Treatment of Capital Losses next. Clues fill 1040x form Treatment of Capital Losses If your capital losses are more than your capital gains, you must claim the difference even if you do not have ordinary income to offset it. Clues fill 1040x form For taxpayers other than corporations, the yearly limit on the capital loss you can deduct is $3,000 ($1,500 if you are married and file a separate return). Clues fill 1040x form If your other income is low, you may not be able to use the full $3,000. Clues fill 1040x form The part of the $3,000 you cannot use becomes part of your capital loss carryover (discussed next). Clues fill 1040x form Capital loss carryover. Clues fill 1040x form   Generally, you have a capital loss carryover if either of the following situations applies to you. Clues fill 1040x form Your net loss on Schedule D (Form 1040), is more than the yearly limit. Clues fill 1040x form Your taxable income without your deduction for exemptions is less than zero. Clues fill 1040x form If either of these situations applies to you for 2013, see Capital Losses under Reporting Capital Gains and Losses in chapter 4 of Publication 550 to figure the amount you can carry over to 2014. Clues fill 1040x form    To figure your capital loss carryover from 2013 to 2014, you will need a copy of your 2013 Form 1040 and Schedule D (Form 1040). Clues fill 1040x form Capital Gains Tax Rates The tax rates that apply to a net capital gain are generally lower than the tax rates that apply to other income. Clues fill 1040x form These lower rates are called the maximum capital gains rates. Clues fill 1040x form The term “net capital gain” means the amount by which your net long-term capital gain for the year is more than your net short-term capital loss. Clues fill 1040x form See Schedule D (Form 1040) and the Instructions for Schedule D (Form 1040). Clues fill 1040x form Also see Publication 550. Clues fill 1040x form Noncapital Assets Noncapital assets include property such as inventory and depreciable property used in a trade or business. Clues fill 1040x form A list of properties that are not capital assets is provided in the Instructions for Schedule D (Form 1040). Clues fill 1040x form Property held for sale in the ordinary course of your farm business. Clues fill 1040x form   Property you hold mainly for sale to customers, such as livestock, poultry, livestock products, and crops, is a noncapital asset. Clues fill 1040x form Gain or loss from sales or other dispositions of this property is reported on Schedule F (Form 1040) (not on Schedule D (Form 1040) or Form 4797). Clues fill 1040x form The treatment of this property is discussed in chapter 3. Clues fill 1040x form Land and depreciable properties. Clues fill 1040x form   Land and depreciable property you use in farming are not capital assets. Clues fill 1040x form Noncapital assets also include livestock held for draft, breeding, dairy, or sporting purposes. Clues fill 1040x form However, your gains and losses from sales and exchanges of your farmland and depreciable properties must be considered together with certain other transactions to determine whether the gains and losses are treated as capital or ordinary gains and losses. Clues fill 1040x form The sales of these business assets are reported on Form 4797. Clues fill 1040x form See chapter 9 for more information. Clues fill 1040x form Hedging (Commodity Futures) Hedging transactions are transactions that you enter into in the normal course of business primarily to manage the risk of interest rate or price changes, or currency fluctuations, with respect to borrowings, ordinary property, or ordinary obligations. Clues fill 1040x form Ordinary property or obligations are those that cannot produce capital gain or loss if sold or exchanged. Clues fill 1040x form A commodity futures contract is a standardized, exchange-traded contract for the sale or purchase of a fixed amount of a commodity at a future date for a fixed price. Clues fill 1040x form The holder of an option on a futures contract has the right (but not the obligation) for a specified period of time to enter into a futures contract to buy or sell at a particular price. Clues fill 1040x form A forward contract is generally similar to a futures contract except that the terms are not standardized and the contract is not exchange traded. Clues fill 1040x form Businesses may enter into commodity futures contracts or forward contracts and may acquire options on commodity futures contracts as either of the following. Clues fill 1040x form Hedging transactions. Clues fill 1040x form Transactions that are not hedging transactions. Clues fill 1040x form Futures transactions with exchange-traded commodity futures contracts that are not hedging transactions, generally, result in capital gain or loss and are subject to the mark-to-market rules discussed in Publication 550. Clues fill 1040x form There is a limit on the amount of capital losses you can deduct each year. Clues fill 1040x form Hedging transactions are not subject to the mark-to-market rules. Clues fill 1040x form If, as a farmer-producer, to protect yourself from the risk of unfavorable price fluctuations, you enter into commodity forward contracts, futures contracts, or options on futures contracts and the contracts cover an amount of the commodity within your range of production, the transactions are generally considered hedging transactions. Clues fill 1040x form They can take place at any time you have the commodity under production, have it on hand for sale, or reasonably expect to have it on hand. Clues fill 1040x form The gain or loss on the termination of these hedges is generally ordinary gain or loss. Clues fill 1040x form Farmers who file their income tax returns on the cash method report any profit or loss on the hedging transaction on Schedule F, line 8. Clues fill 1040x form Gains or losses from hedging transactions that hedge supplies of a type regularly used or consumed in the ordinary course of your trade or business may be ordinary gains or losses. Clues fill 1040x form Examples include fuel and feed. Clues fill 1040x form If you have numerous transactions in the commodity futures market during the year, you must be able to show which transactions are hedging transactions. Clues fill 1040x form Clearly identify a hedging transaction on your books and records before the end of the day you entered into the transaction. Clues fill 1040x form It may be helpful to have separate brokerage accounts for your hedging and speculation transactions. Clues fill 1040x form Retain the identification of each hedging transaction with your books and records. Clues fill 1040x form Also, identify the item(s) or aggregate risk that is being hedged in your records. Clues fill 1040x form Although the identification of the hedging transaction must be made before the end of the day it was entered into, you have 35 days after entering into the transaction to identify the hedged item(s) or risk. Clues fill 1040x form For more information on the tax treatment of futures and options contracts, see Commodity Futures and Section 1256 Contracts Marked to Market in Publication 550. Clues fill 1040x form Accounting methods for hedging transactions. Clues fill 1040x form   The accounting method you use for a hedging transaction must clearly reflect income. Clues fill 1040x form This means that your accounting method must reasonably match the timing of income, deduction, gain, or loss from a hedging transaction with the timing of income, deduction, gain, or loss from the item or items being hedged. Clues fill 1040x form There are requirements and limits on the method you can use for certain hedging transactions. Clues fill 1040x form See Regulations section 1. Clues fill 1040x form 446-4(e) for those requirements and limits. Clues fill 1040x form   Hedging transactions must be accounted for under the rules stated above unless the transaction is subject to mark-to-market accounting under section 475 or you use an accounting method other than the following methods. Clues fill 1040x form Cash method. Clues fill 1040x form Farm-price method. Clues fill 1040x form Unit-livestock-price method. Clues fill 1040x form   Once you adopt a method, you must apply it consistently and must have IRS approval before changing it. Clues fill 1040x form   Your books and records must describe the accounting method used for each type of hedging transaction. Clues fill 1040x form They must also contain any additional identification necessary to verify the application of the accounting method you used for the transaction. Clues fill 1040x form You must make the additional identification no more than 35 days after entering into the hedging transaction. Clues fill 1040x form Example of a hedging transaction. Clues fill 1040x form   You file your income tax returns on the cash method. Clues fill 1040x form On July 2 you anticipate a yield of 50,000 bushels of corn this year. Clues fill 1040x form The December futures price is $5. Clues fill 1040x form 75 a bushel, but there are indications that by harvest time the price will drop. Clues fill 1040x form To protect yourself against a drop in the price, you enter into the following hedging transaction. Clues fill 1040x form You sell ten December futures contracts of 5,000 bushels each for a total of 50,000 bushels of corn at $5. Clues fill 1040x form 75 a bushel. Clues fill 1040x form   The price did not drop as anticipated but rose to $6 a bushel. Clues fill 1040x form In November, you sell your crop at a local elevator for $6 a bushel. Clues fill 1040x form You also close out your futures position by buying ten December contracts for $6 a bushel. Clues fill 1040x form You paid a broker's commission of $1,400 ($70 per contract) for the complete in and out position in the futures market. Clues fill 1040x form   The result is that the price of corn rose 25 cents a bushel and the actual selling price is $6 a bushel. Clues fill 1040x form Your loss on the hedge is 25 cents a bushel. Clues fill 1040x form In effect, the net selling price of your corn is $5. Clues fill 1040x form 75 a bushel. Clues fill 1040x form   Report the results of your futures transactions and your sale of corn separately on Schedule F. Clues fill 1040x form See the instructions for the 2013 Schedule F (Form 1040). Clues fill 1040x form   The loss on your futures transactions is $13,900, figured as follows. Clues fill 1040x form July 2 - Sold December corn futures (50,000 bu. Clues fill 1040x form @$5. Clues fill 1040x form 75) $287,500 November 6 - Bought December corn futures (50,000 bu. Clues fill 1040x form @$6 plus $1,400 broker's commission) 301,400 Futures loss ($13,900) This loss is reported as a negative figure on Schedule F, Part I, line 8, as other income. Clues fill 1040x form   The proceeds from your corn sale at the local elevator are $300,000 (50,000 bu. Clues fill 1040x form × $6). Clues fill 1040x form Report it on Schedule F, Part I, line 2, as income from sales of products you raised. Clues fill 1040x form   Assume you were right and the price went down 25 cents a bushel. Clues fill 1040x form In effect, you would still net $5. Clues fill 1040x form 75 a bushel, figured as follows. Clues fill 1040x form Sold cash corn, per bushel $5. Clues fill 1040x form 50 Gain on hedge, per bushel . Clues fill 1040x form 25 Net price, per bushel $5. Clues fill 1040x form 75       The gain on your futures transactions would have been $11,100, figured as follows. Clues fill 1040x form July 2 - Sold December corn futures (50,000 bu. Clues fill 1040x form @$5. Clues fill 1040x form 75) $287,500 November 6 - Bought December corn futures (50,000 bu. Clues fill 1040x form @$5. Clues fill 1040x form 50 plus $1,400 broker's commission) 276,400 Futures gain $11,100 The $11,100 is reported on Schedule F, Part I, line 8, as other income. Clues fill 1040x form   The proceeds from the sale of your corn at the local elevator, $275,000, are reported on Schedule F, Part I, line 2, as income from sales of products you raised. Clues fill 1040x form Livestock This part discusses the sale or exchange of livestock used in your farm business. Clues fill 1040x form Gain or loss from the sale or exchange of this livestock may qualify as a section 1231 gain or loss. Clues fill 1040x form However, any part of the gain that is ordinary income from the recapture of depreciation is not included as section 1231 gain. Clues fill 1040x form See chapter 9 for more information on section 1231 gains and losses and the recapture of depreciation under section 1245. Clues fill 1040x form The rules discussed here do not apply to the sale of livestock held primarily for sale to customers. Clues fill 1040x form The sale of this livestock is reported on Schedule F. Clues fill 1040x form See chapter 3. Clues fill 1040x form Also, special rules apply to sales or exchanges caused by weather-related conditions. Clues fill 1040x form See chapter 3. Clues fill 1040x form Holding period. Clues fill 1040x form   The sale or exchange of livestock used in your farm business (defined below) qualifies as a section 1231 transaction if you held the livestock for 12 months or more (24 months or more for horses and cattle). Clues fill 1040x form Livestock. Clues fill 1040x form   For section 1231 transactions, livestock includes cattle, hogs, horses, mules, donkeys, sheep, goats, fur-bearing animals, and other mammals. Clues fill 1040x form Also, for section 1231 transactions, livestock does not include chickens, turkeys, pigeons, geese, emus, ostriches, rheas, or other birds, fish, frogs, reptiles, etc. Clues fill 1040x form Livestock used in farm business. Clues fill 1040x form   If livestock is held primarily for draft, breeding, dairy, or sporting purposes, it is used in your farm business. Clues fill 1040x form The purpose for which an animal is held ordinarily is determined by a farmer's actual use of the animal. Clues fill 1040x form An animal is not held for draft, breeding, dairy, or sporting purposes merely because it is suitable for that purpose, or because it is held for sale to other persons for use by them for that purpose. Clues fill 1040x form However, a draft, breeding, or sporting purpose may be present if an animal is disposed of within a reasonable time after it is prevented from its intended use or made undesirable as a result of an accident, disease, drought, or unfitness of the animal. Clues fill 1040x form Example 1. Clues fill 1040x form You discover an animal that you intend to use for breeding purposes is sterile. Clues fill 1040x form You dispose of it within a reasonable time. Clues fill 1040x form This animal was held for breeding purposes. Clues fill 1040x form Example 2. Clues fill 1040x form You retire and sell your entire herd, including young animals that you would have used for breeding or dairy purposes had you remained in business. Clues fill 1040x form These young animals were held for breeding or dairy purposes. Clues fill 1040x form Also, if you sell young animals to reduce your breeding or dairy herd because of drought, these animals are treated as having been held for breeding or dairy purposes. Clues fill 1040x form See Sales Caused by Weather-Related Conditions in chapter 3. Clues fill 1040x form Example 3. Clues fill 1040x form You are in the business of raising hogs for slaughter. Clues fill 1040x form Customarily, before selling your sows, you obtain a single litter of pigs that you will raise for sale. Clues fill 1040x form You sell the brood sows after obtaining the litter. Clues fill 1040x form Even though you hold these brood sows for ultimate sale to customers in the ordinary course of your business, they are considered to be held for breeding purposes. Clues fill 1040x form Example 4. Clues fill 1040x form You are in the business of raising registered cattle for sale to others for use as breeding cattle. Clues fill 1040x form The business practice is to breed the cattle before sale to establish their fitness as registered breeding cattle. Clues fill 1040x form Your use of the young cattle for breeding purposes is ordinary and necessary for selling them as registered breeding cattle. Clues fill 1040x form Such use does not demonstrate that you are holding the cattle for breeding purposes. Clues fill 1040x form However, those cattle you held as additions or replacements to your own breeding herd to produce calves are considered to be held for breeding purposes, even though they may not actually have produced calves. Clues fill 1040x form The same applies to hog and sheep breeders. Clues fill 1040x form Example 5. Clues fill 1040x form You breed, raise, and train horses for racing purposes. Clues fill 1040x form Every year you cull horses from your racing stable. Clues fill 1040x form In 2013, you decided that to prevent your racing stable from getting too large to be effectively operated, you must cull six horses that had been raced at public tracks in 2012. Clues fill 1040x form These horses are all considered held for sporting purposes. Clues fill 1040x form Figuring gain or loss on the cash method. Clues fill 1040x form   Farmers or ranchers who use the cash method of accounting figure their gain or loss on the sale of livestock used in their farming business as follows. Clues fill 1040x form Raised livestock. Clues fill 1040x form   Gain on the sale of raised livestock is generally the gross sales price reduced by any expenses of the sale. Clues fill 1040x form Expenses of sale include sales commissions, freight or hauling from farm to commission company, and other similar expenses. Clues fill 1040x form The basis of the animal sold is zero if the costs of raising it were deducted during the years the animal was being raised. Clues fill 1040x form However, see Uniform Capitalization Rules in chapter 6. Clues fill 1040x form Purchased livestock. Clues fill 1040x form   The gross sales price minus your adjusted basis and any expenses of sale is the gain or loss. Clues fill 1040x form Example. Clues fill 1040x form A farmer sold a breeding cow on January 8, 2013, for $1,250. Clues fill 1040x form Expenses of the sale were $125. Clues fill 1040x form The cow was bought July 2, 2009, for $1,300. Clues fill 1040x form Depreciation (not less than the amount allowable) was $867. Clues fill 1040x form Gross sales price $1,250 Cost (basis) $1,300   Minus: Depreciation deduction 867   Unrecovered cost (adjusted basis) $ 433   Expense of sale 125 558 Gain realized $ 692 Converted Wetland and Highly Erodible Cropland Special rules apply to dispositions of land converted to farming use after March 1, 1986. Clues fill 1040x form Any gain realized on the disposition of converted wetland or highly erodible cropland is treated as ordinary income. Clues fill 1040x form Any loss on the disposition of such property is treated as a long-term capital loss. Clues fill 1040x form Converted wetland. Clues fill 1040x form   This is generally land that was drained or filled to make the production of agricultural commodities possible. Clues fill 1040x form It includes converted wetland held by the person who originally converted it or held by any other person who used the converted wetland at any time after conversion for farming. Clues fill 1040x form   A wetland (before conversion) is land that meets all the following conditions. Clues fill 1040x form It is mostly soil that, in its undrained condition, is saturated, flooded, or ponded long enough during a growing season to develop an oxygen-deficient state that supports the growth and regeneration of plants growing in water. Clues fill 1040x form It is saturated by surface or groundwater at a frequency and duration sufficient to support mostly plants that are adapted for life in saturated soil. Clues fill 1040x form It supports, under normal circumstances, mostly plants that grow in saturated soil. Clues fill 1040x form Highly erodible cropland. Clues fill 1040x form   This is cropland subject to erosion that you used at any time for farming purposes other than grazing animals. Clues fill 1040x form Generally, highly erodible cropland is land currently classified by the Department of Agriculture as Class IV, VI, VII, or VIII under its classification system. Clues fill 1040x form Highly erodible cropland also includes land that would have an excessive average annual erosion rate in relation to the soil loss tolerance level, as determined by the Department of Agriculture. Clues fill 1040x form Successor. Clues fill 1040x form   Converted wetland or highly erodible cropland is also land held by any person whose basis in the land is figured by reference to the adjusted basis of a person in whose hands the property was converted wetland or highly erodible cropland. Clues fill 1040x form Timber Standing timber you held as investment property is a capital asset. Clues fill 1040x form Gain or loss from its sale is capital gain or loss reported on Form 8949 and Schedule D (Form 1040), as applicable. Clues fill 1040x form If you held the timber primarily for sale to customers, it is not a capital asset. Clues fill 1040x form Gain or loss on its sale is ordinary business income or loss. Clues fill 1040x form It is reported on Schedule F, line 1 (purchased timber) or line 2 (raised timber). Clues fill 1040x form See the Instructions for Schedule F (Form 1040). Clues fill 1040x form Farmers who cut timber on their land and sell it as logs, firewood, or pulpwood usually have no cost or other basis for that timber. Clues fill 1040x form Amounts realized from these sales, and the expenses incurred in cutting, hauling, etc. Clues fill 1040x form , are ordinary farm income and expenses reported on Schedule F. Clues fill 1040x form Different rules apply if you owned the timber longer than 1 year and elect to treat timber cutting as a sale or exchange or you enter into a cutting contract, discussed below. Clues fill 1040x form Timber considered cut. Clues fill 1040x form   Timber is considered cut on the date when, in the ordinary course of business, the quantity of felled timber is first definitely determined. Clues fill 1040x form This is true whether the timber is cut under contract or whether you cut it yourself. Clues fill 1040x form Christmas trees. Clues fill 1040x form   Evergreen trees, such as Christmas trees, that are more than 6 years old when severed from their roots and sold for ornamental purposes are included in the term timber. Clues fill 1040x form They qualify for both rules discussed below. Clues fill 1040x form Election to treat cutting as a sale or exchange. Clues fill 1040x form   Under the general rule, the cutting of timber results in no gain or loss. Clues fill 1040x form It is not until a sale or exchange occurs that gain or loss is realized. Clues fill 1040x form But if you owned or had a contractual right to cut timber, you can elect to treat the cutting of timber as a section 1231 transaction in the year it is cut. Clues fill 1040x form Even though the cut timber is not actually sold or exchanged, you report your gain or loss on the cutting for the year the timber is cut. Clues fill 1040x form Any later sale results in ordinary business income or loss. Clues fill 1040x form See the example below. Clues fill 1040x form   To elect this treatment, you must: Own or hold a contractual right to cut the timber for a period of more than 1 year before it is cut, and Cut the timber for sale or use in your trade or business. Clues fill 1040x form Making the election. Clues fill 1040x form   You make the election on your return for the year the cutting takes place by including in income the gain or loss on the cutting and including a computation of your gain or loss. Clues fill 1040x form You do not have to make the election in the first year you cut the timber. Clues fill 1040x form You can make it in any year to which the election would apply. Clues fill 1040x form If the timber is partnership property, the election is made on the partnership return. Clues fill 1040x form This election cannot be made on an amended return. Clues fill 1040x form   Once you have made the election, it remains in effect for all later years unless you revoke it. Clues fill 1040x form Election under section 631(a) may be revoked. Clues fill 1040x form   If you previously elected for any tax year ending before October 23, 2004, to treat the cutting of timber as a sale or exchange under section 631(a), you may revoke this election without the consent of the IRS for any tax year ending after October 22, 2004. Clues fill 1040x form The prior election (and revocation) is disregarded for purposes of making a subsequent election. Clues fill 1040x form See Form T (Timber), Forest Activities Schedule, for more information. Clues fill 1040x form Gain or loss. Clues fill 1040x form   Your gain or loss on the cutting of standing timber is the difference between its adjusted basis for depletion and its FMV on the first day of your tax year in which it is cut. Clues fill 1040x form   Your adjusted basis for depletion of cut timber is based on the number of units (board feet, log scale, or other units) of timber cut during the tax year and considered to be sold or exchanged. Clues fill 1040x form Your adjusted basis for depletion is also based on the depletion unit of timber in the account used for the cut timber, and should be figured in the same manner as shown in section 611 and Regulations section 1. Clues fill 1040x form 611-3. Clues fill 1040x form   Depletion of timber is discussed in chapter 7. Clues fill 1040x form Example. Clues fill 1040x form   In April 2013, you owned 4,000 MBF (1,000 board feet) of standing timber longer than 1 year. Clues fill 1040x form It had an adjusted basis for depletion of $40 per MBF. Clues fill 1040x form You are a calendar year taxpayer. Clues fill 1040x form On January 1, 2013, the timber had a FMV of $350 per MBF. Clues fill 1040x form It was cut in April for sale. Clues fill 1040x form On your 2013 tax return, you elect to treat the cutting of the timber as a sale or exchange. Clues fill 1040x form You report the difference between the FMV and your adjusted basis for depletion as a gain. Clues fill 1040x form This amount is reported on Form 4797 along with your other section 1231 gains and losses to figure whether it is treated as a capital gain or as ordinary gain. Clues fill 1040x form You figure your gain as follows. Clues fill 1040x form FMV of timber January 1, 2013 $1,400,000 Minus: Adjusted basis for depletion 160,000 Section 1231 gain $1,240,000   The FMV becomes your basis in the cut timber, and a later sale of the cut timber, including any by-product or tree tops, will result in ordinary business income or loss. Clues fill 1040x form Outright sales of timber. Clues fill 1040x form   Outright sales of timber by landowners qualify for capital gains treatment using rules similar to the rules for certain disposal of timber under a contract with retained economic interest (defined later). Clues fill 1040x form However, for outright sales, the date of disposal is not deemed to be the date the timber is cut because the landowner can elect to treat the payment date as the date of disposal (see Date of disposal below). Clues fill 1040x form Cutting contract. Clues fill 1040x form   You must treat the disposal of standing timber under a cutting contract as a section 1231 transaction if all the following apply to you. Clues fill 1040x form You are the owner of the timber. Clues fill 1040x form You held the timber longer than 1 year before its disposal. Clues fill 1040x form You kept an economic interest in the timber. Clues fill 1040x form   You have kept an economic interest in standing timber if, under the cutting contract, the expected return on your investment is conditioned on the cutting of the timber. Clues fill 1040x form   The difference between the amount realized from the disposal of the timber and its adjusted basis for depletion is treated as gain or loss on its sale. Clues fill 1040x form Include this amount on Form 4797 along with your other section 1231 gains or losses. Clues fill 1040x form Date of disposal. Clues fill 1040x form   The date of disposal is the date the timber is cut. Clues fill 1040x form However, for outright sales by landowners or if you receive payment under the contract before the timber is cut, you can elect to treat the date of payment as the date of disposal. Clues fill 1040x form   This election applies only to figure the holding period of the timber. Clues fill 1040x form It has no effect on the time for reporting gain or loss (generally when the timber is sold or exchanged). Clues fill 1040x form   To make this election, attach a statement to the tax return filed by the due date (including extensions) for the year payment is received. Clues fill 1040x form The statement must identify the advance payments subject to the election and the contract under which they were made. Clues fill 1040x form   If you timely filed your return for the year you received payment without making the election, you can still make the election by filing an amended return within 6 months after the due date for that year's return (excluding extensions). Clues fill 1040x form Attach the statement to the amended return and write “Filed pursuant to section 301. Clues fill 1040x form 9100-2” at the top of the statement. Clues fill 1040x form File the amended return at the same address the original return was filed. Clues fill 1040x form Owner. Clues fill 1040x form   An owner is any person who owns an interest in the timber, including a sublessor and the holder of a contract to cut the timber. Clues fill 1040x form You own an interest in timber if you have the right to cut it for sale on your own account or for use in your business. Clues fill 1040x form Tree stumps. Clues fill 1040x form   Tree stumps are a capital asset if they are on land held by an investor who is not in the timber or stump business as a buyer, seller, or processor. Clues fill 1040x form Gain from the sale of stumps sold in one lot by such a holder is taxed as a capital gain. Clues fill 1040x form However, tree stumps held by timber operators after the saleable standing timber was cut and removed from the land are considered by-products. Clues fill 1040x form Gain from the sale of stumps in lots or tonnage by such operators is taxed as ordinary income. Clues fill 1040x form   See Form T (Timber) and its separate instructions for more information about dispositions of timber. Clues fill 1040x form Sale of a Farm The sale of your farm will usually involve the sale of both nonbusiness property (your home) and business property (the land and buildings used in the farm operation and perhaps machinery and livestock). Clues fill 1040x form If you have a gain from the sale, you may be allowed to exclude the gain on your home. Clues fill 1040x form For more information, see Publication 523, Selling Your Home. Clues fill 1040x form The gain on the sale of your business property is taxable. Clues fill 1040x form A loss on the sale of your business property to an unrelated person is deducted as an ordinary loss. Clues fill 1040x form Your taxable gain or loss on the sale of property used in your farm business is taxed under the rules for section 1231 transactions. Clues fill 1040x form See chapter 9. Clues fill 1040x form Losses from personal-use property, other than casualty or theft losses, are not deductible. Clues fill 1040x form If you receive payments for your farm in installments, your gain is taxed over the period of years the payments are received, unless you elect not to use the installment method of reporting the gain. Clues fill 1040x form See chapter 10 for information about installment sales. Clues fill 1040x form When you sell your farm, the gain or loss on each asset is figured separately. Clues fill 1040x form The tax treatment of gain or loss on the sale of each asset is determined by the classification of the asset. Clues fill 1040x form Each of the assets sold must be classified as one of the following. Clues fill 1040x form Capital asset held 1 year or less. Clues fill 1040x form Capital asset held longer than 1 year. Clues fill 1040x form Property (including real estate) used in your business and held 1 year or less (including draft, breeding, dairy, and sporting animals held less than the holding periods discussed earlier under Livestock ). Clues fill 1040x form Property (including real estate) used in your business and held longer than 1 year (including only draft, breeding, dairy, and sporting animals held for the holding periods discussed earlier). Clues fill 1040x form Property held primarily for sale or which is of the kind that would be included in inventory if on hand at the end of your tax year. Clues fill 1040x form Allocation of consideration paid for a farm. Clues fill 1040x form   The sale of a farm for a lump sum is considered a sale of each individual asset rather than a single asset. Clues fill 1040x form The residual method is required only if the group of assets sold constitutes a trade or business. Clues fill 1040x form This method determines gain or loss from the transfer of each asset. Clues fill 1040x form It also determines the buyer's basis in the business assets. Clues fill 1040x form For more information, see Sale of a Business in chapter 2 of Publication 544. Clues fill 1040x form Property used in farm operation. Clues fill 1040x form   The rules for excluding the gain on the sale of your home, described later under Sale of your home , do not apply to the property used for your farming business. Clues fill 1040x form Recognized gains and losses on business property must be reported on your return for the year of the sale. Clues fill 1040x form If the property was held longer than 1 year, it may qualify for section 1231 treatment (see chapter 9). Clues fill 1040x form Example. Clues fill 1040x form You sell your farm, including your main home, which you have owned since December 2001. Clues fill 1040x form You realize gain on the sale as follows. Clues fill 1040x form   Farm   Farm   With Home Without   Home Only Home Selling price $382,000 $158,000 $224,000 Cost (or other basis) 240,000 110,000 130,000 Gain $142,000 $48,000 $94,000 You must report the $94,000 gain from the sale of the property used in your farm business. Clues fill 1040x form All or a part of that gain may have to be reported as ordinary income from the recapture of depreciation or soil and water conservation expenses. Clues fill 1040x form Treat the balance as section 1231 gain. Clues fill 1040x form The $48,000 gain from the sale of your home is not taxable as long as you meet the requirements explained later under Sale of your home . Clues fill 1040x form Partial sale. Clues fill 1040x form   If you sell only part of your farm, you must report any recognized gain or loss on the sale of that part on your tax return for the year of the sale. Clues fill 1040x form You cannot wait until you have sold enough of the farm to recover its entire cost before reporting gain or loss. Clues fill 1040x form For a detailed discussion on installment sales, see Publication 544. Clues fill 1040x form Adjusted basis of the part sold. Clues fill 1040x form   This is the properly allocated part of your original cost or other basis of the entire farm plus or minus necessary adjustments for improvements, depreciation, etc. Clues fill 1040x form , on the part sold. Clues fill 1040x form If your home is on the farm, you must properly adjust the basis to exclude those costs from your farm asset costs, as discussed below under Sale of your home . Clues fill 1040x form Example. Clues fill 1040x form You bought a 600-acre farm for $700,000. Clues fill 1040x form The farm included land and buildings. Clues fill 1040x form The purchase contract designated $600,000 of the purchase price to the land. Clues fill 1040x form You later sold 60 acres of land on which you had installed a fence. Clues fill 1040x form Your adjusted basis for the part of your farm sold is $60,000 (1/10 of $600,000), plus any unrecovered cost (cost not depreciated) of the fence on the 60 acres at the time of sale. Clues fill 1040x form Use this amount to determine your gain or loss on the sale of the 60 acres. Clues fill 1040x form Assessed values for local property taxes. Clues fill 1040x form   If you paid a flat sum for the entire farm and no other facts are available for properly allocating your original cost or other basis between the land and the buildings, you can use the assessed values for local property taxes for the year of purchase to allocate the costs. Clues fill 1040x form Example. Clues fill 1040x form Assume that in the preceding example there was no breakdown of the $700,000 purchase price between land and buildings. Clues fill 1040x form However, in the year of purchase, local taxes on the entire property were based on assessed valuations of $420,000 for land and $140,000 for improvements, or a total of $560,000. Clues fill 1040x form The assessed valuation of the land is 3/4 (75%) of the total assessed valuation. Clues fill 1040x form Multiply the $700,000 total purchase price by 75% to figure basis of $525,000 for the 600 acres of land. Clues fill 1040x form The unadjusted basis of the 60 acres you sold would then be $52,500 (1/10 of $525,000). Clues fill 1040x form Sale of your home. Clues fill 1040x form   Your home is a capital asset and not property used in the trade or business of farming. Clues fill 1040x form If you sell a farm that includes a house you and your family occupy, you must determine the part of the selling price and the part of the cost or other basis allocable to your home. Clues fill 1040x form Your home includes the immediate surroundings and outbuildings relating to it that are not used for business purposes. Clues fill 1040x form   If you use part of your home for business, you must make an appropriate adjustment to the basis for depreciation allowed or allowable. Clues fill 1040x form For more information on basis, see chapter 6. Clues fill 1040x form More information. Clues fill 1040x form   For more information on selling your home, see Publication 523. Clues fill 1040x form Gain from condemnation. Clues fill 1040x form   If you have a gain from a condemnation or sale under threat of condemnation, you may use the preceding rules for excluding the gain, rather than the rules discussed under Postponing Gain in chapter 11. Clues fill 1040x form However, any gain that cannot be excluded (because it is more than the limit) may be postponed under the rules discussed under Postponing Gain in chapter 11. Clues fill 1040x form Foreclosure or Repossession If you do not make payments you owe on a loan secured by property, the lender may foreclose on the loan or repossess the property. Clues fill 1040x form The foreclosure or repossession is treated as a sale or exchange from which you may realize gain or loss. Clues fill 1040x form This is true even if you voluntarily return the property to the lender. Clues fill 1040x form You may also realize ordinary income from cancellation of debt if the loan balance is more than the FMV of the property. Clues fill 1040x form Buyer's (borrower's) gain or loss. Clues fill 1040x form   You figure and report gain or loss from a foreclosure or repossession in the same way as gain or loss from a sale or exchange. Clues fill 1040x form The gain or loss is the difference between your adjusted basis in the transferred property and the amount realized. Clues fill 1040x form See Determining Gain or Loss , earlier. Clues fill 1040x form Worksheet 8-1. Clues fill 1040x form Worksheet for Foreclosures andRepossessions Part 1. Clues fill 1040x form Use Part 1 to figure your ordinary income from the cancellation of debt upon foreclosure or repossession.

Clues fill 1040x form    You can use Worksheet 8-1 to figure your gain or loss from a foreclosure or repossession. Clues fill 1040x form Amount realized on a nonrecourse debt. Clues fill 1040x form   If you are not personally liable for repaying the debt (nonrecourse debt) secured by the transferred property, the amount you realize includes the full amount of the debt canceled by the transfer. Clues fill 1040x form The full canceled debt is included in the amount realized even if the fair market value of the property is less than the canceled debt. Clues fill 1040x form Example 1. Clues fill 1040x form Ann paid $200,000 for land used in her farming business. Clues fill 1040x form She paid $15,000 down and borrowed the remaining $185,000 from a bank. Clues fill 1040x form Ann is not personally liable for the loan (nonrecourse debt), but pledges the land as security. Clues fill 1040x form The bank foreclosed on the loan 2 years after Ann stopped making payments. Clues fill 1040x form When the bank foreclosed, the balance due on the loan was $180,000 and the FMV of the land was $170,000. Clues fill 1040x form The amount Ann realized on the foreclosure was $180,000, the debt canceled by the foreclosure. Clues fill 1040x form She figures her gain or loss on Form 4797, Part I, by comparing the amount realized ($180,000) with her adjusted basis ($200,000). Clues fill 1040x form She has a $20,000 deductible loss. Clues fill 1040x form Example 2. Clues fill 1040x form Assume the same facts as in Example 1 except the FMV of the land was $210,000. Clues fill 1040x form The result is the same. Clues fill 1040x form The amount Ann realized on the foreclosure is $180,000, the debt canceled by the foreclosure. Clues fill 1040x form Because her adjusted basis is $200,000, she has a deductible loss of $20,000, which she reports on Form 4797, Part I. Clues fill 1040x form Amount realized on a recourse debt. Clues fill 1040x form   If you are personally liable for the debt (recourse debt), the amount realized on the foreclosure or repossession includes the lesser of: The outstanding debt immediately before the transfer reduced by any amount for which you remain personally liable immediately after the transfer, or The fair market value of the transferred property. Clues fill 1040x form   You are treated as receiving ordinary income from the canceled debt for the part of the debt that is more than the fair market value. Clues fill 1040x form The amount realized does not include the canceled debt that is your income from cancellation of debt. Clues fill 1040x form See Cancellation of debt , later. Clues fill 1040x form Example 3. Clues fill 1040x form Assume the same facts as in Example 1 above except Ann is personally liable for the loan (recourse debt). Clues fill 1040x form In this case, the amount she realizes is $170,000. Clues fill 1040x form This is the canceled debt ($180,000) up to the FMV of the land ($170,000). Clues fill 1040x form Ann figures her gain or loss on the foreclosure by comparing the amount realized ($170,000) with her adjusted basis ($200,000). Clues fill 1040x form She has a $30,000 deductible loss, which she figures on Form 4797, Part I. Clues fill 1040x form She is also treated as receiving ordinary income from cancellation of debt. Clues fill 1040x form That income is $10,000 ($180,000 − $170,000). Clues fill 1040x form This is the part of the canceled debt not included in the amount realized. Clues fill 1040x form She reports this as other income on Schedule F, line 8. Clues fill 1040x form Seller's (lender's) gain or loss on repossession. Clues fill 1040x form   If you finance a buyer's purchase of property and later acquire an interest in it through foreclosure or repossession, you may have a gain or loss on the acquisition. Clues fill 1040x form For more information, see Repossession in Publication 537, Installment Sales. Clues fill 1040x form Cancellation of debt. Clues fill 1040x form   If property that is repossessed or foreclosed upon secures a debt for which you are personally liable (recourse debt), you generally must report as ordinary income the amount by which the canceled debt is more than the FMV of the property. Clues fill 1040x form This income is separate from any gain or loss realized from the foreclosure or repossession. Clues fill 1040x form Report the income from cancellation of a business debt on Schedule F, line 8. Clues fill 1040x form Report the income from cancellation of a nonbusiness debt as miscellaneous income on Form 1040. Clues fill 1040x form    You can use Worksheet 8-1 to figure your income from cancellation of debt. Clues fill 1040x form   However, income from cancellation of debt is not taxed if any of the following apply. Clues fill 1040x form The cancellation is intended as a gift. Clues fill 1040x form The debt is qualified farm debt (see chapter 3). Clues fill 1040x form The debt is qualified real property business debt (see chapter 5 of Publication 334). Clues fill 1040x form You are insolvent or bankrupt (see  chapter 3). Clues fill 1040x form The debt is qualified principal residence indebtedness (see chapter 3). Clues fill 1040x form   Use Form 982 to report the income exclusion. Clues fill 1040x form Abandonment The abandonment of property is a disposition of property. Clues fill 1040x form You abandon property when you voluntarily and permanently give up possession and use of the property with the intention of ending your ownership, but without passing it on to anyone else. Clues fill 1040x form Business or investment property. Clues fill 1040x form   Loss from abandonment of business or investment property is deductible as a loss. Clues fill 1040x form Loss from abandonment of business or investment property that is not treated as a sale or exchange generally is an ordinary loss. Clues fill 1040x form If your adjusted basis is more than the amount you realize (if any), then you have a loss. Clues fill 1040x form If the amount you realize (if any) is more than your adjusted basis, then you have a gain. Clues fill 1040x form This rule also applies to leasehold improvements the lessor made for the lessee. Clues fill 1040x form However, if the property is foreclosed on or repossessed in lieu of abandonment, gain or loss is figured as discussed earlier under Foreclosure or Repossession . Clues fill 1040x form   If the abandoned property is secured by debt, special rules apply. Clues fill 1040x form The tax consequences of abandonment of property that secures a debt depend on whether you are personally liable for the debt (recourse debt) or were not personally liable for the debt (nonrecourse debt). Clues fill 1040x form For more information, see chapter 3 of Publication 4681, Canceled Debts, Foreclosures, Repossessions, and Abandonments (for Individuals). Clues fill 1040x form The abandonment loss is deducted in the tax year in which the loss is sustained. Clues fill 1040x form Report the loss on Form 4797, Part II, line 10. Clues fill 1040x form Personal-use property. Clues fill 1040x form   You cannot deduct any loss from abandonment of your home or other property held for personal use. Clues fill 1040x form Canceled debt. Clues fill 1040x form   If the abandoned property secures a debt for which you are personally liable and the debt is canceled, you will realize ordinary income equal to the canceled debt. Clues fill 1040x form This income is separate from any loss realized from abandonment of the property. Clues fill 1040x form Report income from cancellation of a debt related to a business or rental activity as business or rental income. Clues fill 1040x form Report income from cancellation of a nonbusiness debt as miscellaneous income on Form 1040. Clues fill 1040x form   However, income from cancellation of debt is not taxed in certain circumstances. Clues fill 1040x form See Cancellation of debt earlier under Foreclosure or Repossession . Clues fill 1040x form Forms 1099-A and 1099-C. Clues fill 1040x form   A lender who acquires an interest in your property in a foreclosure, repossession, or abandonment should send you Form 1099-A showing the information you need to figure your loss from the foreclosure, repossession, or abandonment. Clues fill 1040x form However, if the lender cancels part of your debt and the lender must file Form 1099-C, the lender may include the information about the foreclosure, repossession, or abandonment on that form instead of Form 1099-A. Clues fill 1040x form The lender must file Form 1099-C and send you a copy if the canceled debt is $600 or more and the lender is a financial institution, credit union, federal government agency, or any organization that has a significant trade or business of lending money.

Tax Relief for Victims of Hurricane Irene in Puerto Rico

Updated 9/29/11 to add the municipalities of Adjuntas, Ciales, Guaynabo.

Updated 9/13/11 to add the municipalities of Fajardo, Gurabo, Las Piedras, Naguabo, Naranjito, Río Grande, San Lorenzo, Trujillo Alto, Vega Baja, Vieques and Villalba.

Updated 9/6/11 to add the municipalities of Arroyo, Aguas Buenas, Cidra, Coamo, Comerio, Humacao, Jayuya, Juncos, Orocovis, Patillas and Ponce.

SP-FL-2011-14, Aug. 30, 2011

MIAMI — Victims of Hurricane Irene that began on Aug. 21, 2011 in parts of Puerto Rico may qualify for tax relief from the Internal Revenue Service.

The President has declared the following municipalities a federal disaster area: Adjuntas, Arroyo, Aguas Buenas, Caguas, Canóvanas, Carolina, Cayey, Cidra, Ciales, Coamo, Comerío, Fajardo, Guaynabo, Gurabo, Humacao, Jayuya, Juncos, Las Piedras, Loíza, Luquillo, Naguabo, Naranjito, Orocovis, Patillas, Ponce, Río Grande,  San Juan, San Lorenzo, Trujillo Alto, Vega Baja, Vieques and Villalba. Individuals who reside or have a business in these municipalities may qualify for tax relief.

The declaration permits the IRS to postpone certain deadlines for taxpayers who reside or have a business in the disaster area. For instance, certain deadlines falling on or after Aug. 21, and on or before Oct. 31, have been postponed to Oct. 31, 2011. This includes corporations and other businesses that previously obtained an extension until Sept. 15 to file their 2010 returns, and individuals and businesses that received a similar extension until Oct. 17. It also includes the estimated tax payment for the third quarter, normally due Sept. 15.  

In addition, the IRS is waiving the failure-to-deposit penalties for employment and excise tax deposits due on or after Aug. 21, and on or before Sept. 6, as long as the deposits are made by Sept. 6, 2011.

If an affected taxpayer receives a penalty notice from the IRS, the taxpayer should call the telephone number on the notice to have the IRS abate any interest and any late filing or late payment penalties that would otherwise apply. Penalties or interest will be abated only for taxpayers who have an original or extended filing, payment or deposit due date, including an extended filing or payment due date, that falls within the postponement period.

The IRS automatically identifies taxpayers located in the covered disaster area and applies automatic filing and payment relief. But affected taxpayers who reside or have a business located outside the covered disaster area must call the IRS disaster hotline at 1-866-562-5227 to request this tax relief.

Covered Disaster Area

The municipalities listed above constitute a covered disaster area for purposes of Treas. Reg. § 301.7508A-1(d)(2) and are entitled to the relief detailed below.

Affected Taxpayers

Taxpayers considered to be affected taxpayers eligible for the postponement of time to file returns, pay taxes and perform other time-sensitive acts are those taxpayers listed in Treas. Reg. § 301.7508A-1(d)(1), and include individuals who live, and businesses whose principal place of business is located, in the covered disaster area. Taxpayers not in the covered disaster area, but whose records necessary to meet a deadline listed in Treas. Reg. § 301.7508A-1(c) are in the covered disaster area, are also entitled to relief. In addition, all relief workers affiliated with a recognized government or philanthropic organization assisting in the relief activities in the covered disaster area and any individual visiting the covered disaster area who was killed or injured as a result of the disaster are entitled to relief.

Grant of Relief

Under section 7508A, the IRS gives affected taxpayers until Oct. 31 to file most tax returns (including individual, corporate, and estate and trust income tax returns; partnership returns, S corporation returns, and trust returns; estate, gift, and generation-skipping transfer tax returns; and employment and certain excise tax returns), or to make tax payments, including estimated tax payments, that have either an original or extended due date occurring on or after Aug. 21 and on or before Oct. 31.

The IRS also gives affected taxpayers until Oct. 31 to perform other time-sensitive actions described in Treas. Reg. § 301.7508A-1(c)(1) and Rev. Proc. 2007-56, 2007-34 I.R.B. 388 (Aug. 20, 2007), that are due to be performed on or after Aug. 21 and on or before Oct. 31.

This relief also includes the filing of Form 5500 series returns, in the manner described in section 8 of Rev. Proc. 2007-56. The relief described in section 17 of Rev. Proc. 2007-56, pertaining to like-kind exchanges of property, also applies to certain taxpayers who are not otherwise affected taxpayers and may include acts required to be performed before or after the period above.

The postponement of time to file and pay does not apply to information returns in the W-2, 1098, 1099 series, or to Forms 1042-S or 8027. Penalties for failure to timely file information returns can be waived under existing procedures for reasonable cause. Likewise, the postponement does not apply to employment and excise tax deposits. The IRS, however, will abate penalties for failure to make timely employment and excise tax deposits due on or after Aug. 21 and on or before Sept. 6 provided the taxpayer makes these deposits by Sept. 6.

Casualty Losses

Affected taxpayers in a federally declared disaster area have the option of claiming disaster-related casualty losses on their federal income tax return for either this year or last year. Claiming the loss on an original or amended return for last year will get the taxpayer an earlier refund, but waiting to claim the loss on this year’s return could result in a greater tax saving, depending on other income factors.

Individuals may deduct personal property losses that are not covered by insurance or other reimbursements. For details, see Form 4684 and its instructions.
Affected taxpayers claiming the disaster loss on last year’s return should put the Disaster Designation “Puerto Rico/Hurricane Irene” at the top of the form so that the IRS can expedite the processing of the refund.

Other Relief

The IRS will waive the usual fees and expedite requests for copies of previously filed tax returns for affected taxpayers. Taxpayers should put the assigned Disaster Designation in red ink at the top of Form 4506, Request for Copy of Tax Return, or Form 4506-T, Request for Transcript of Tax Return, as appropriate, and submit it to the IRS.

Affected taxpayers who are contacted by the IRS on a collection or examination matter should explain how the disaster impacts them so that the IRS can provide appropriate consideration to their case.

Taxpayers may download forms and publications from the official IRS website, irs.gov, or order them by calling 1-800-TAX-FORM (1-800-829-3676). The IRS toll-free number for general tax questions is 1-800-829-1040.
