Free irs extension form Generally, you should receive the statement by February 15 of the next year. Free irs extension form It will show the gross proceeds from the sale. Free irs extension form If you sold a covered security in 2013, your 1099-B (or substitute statement) will show your basis. Free irs extension form Generally, a covered security is a security you acquired after 2010, with certain exceptions. Free irs extension form See the Instructions for Form 8949. Free irs extension form The IRS will also get a copy of Form 1099-B from the broker. Free irs extension form Use Form 1099-B (or substitute statement received from your broker) to complete Form 8949. Free irs extension form What Is a Sale or Trade? This section explains what is a sale or trade. Free irs extension form It also explains certain transactions and events that are treated as sales or trades. Free irs extension form A sale is generally a transfer of property for money or a mortgage, note, or other promise to pay money. Free irs extension form A trade is a transfer of property for other property or services and may be taxed in the same way as a sale. Free irs extension form Sale and purchase. Free irs extension form   Ordinarily, a transaction is not a trade when you voluntarily sell property for cash and immediately buy similar property to replace it. Free irs extension form The sale and purchase are two separate transactions. Free irs extension form But see Like-kind exchanges under Nontaxable Trades, later. Free irs extension form Redemption of stock. Free irs extension form   A redemption of stock is treated as a sale or trade and is subject to the capital gain or loss provisions unless the redemption is a dividend or other distribution on stock. Free irs extension form Dividend versus sale or trade. Free irs extension form   Whether a redemption is treated as a sale, trade, dividend, or other distribution depends on the circumstances in each case. Free irs extension form Both direct and indirect ownership of stock will be considered. Free irs extension form The redemption is treated as a sale or trade of stock if: The redemption is not essentially equivalent to a dividend (see chapter 8), There is a substantially disproportionate redemption of stock, There is a complete redemption of all the stock of the corporation owned by the shareholder, or The redemption is a distribution in partial liquidation of a corporation. Free irs extension form Redemption or retirement of bonds. Free irs extension form   A redemption or retirement of bonds or notes at their maturity is generally treated as a sale or trade. Free irs extension form   In addition, a significant modification of a bond is treated as a trade of the original bond for a new bond. Free irs extension form For details, see Regulations section 1. Free irs extension form 1001-3. Free irs extension form Surrender of stock. Free irs extension form   A surrender of stock by a dominant shareholder who retains ownership of more than half of the corporation's voting shares is treated as a contribution to capital rather than as an immediate loss deductible from taxable income. Free irs extension form The surrendering shareholder must reallocate his or her basis in the surrendered shares to the shares he or she retains. Free irs extension form Worthless securities. Free irs extension form    Stocks, stock rights, and bonds (other than those held for sale by a securities dealer) that became completely worthless during the tax year are treated as though they were sold on the last day of the tax year. Free irs extension form This affects whether your capital loss is long term or short term. Free irs extension form See Holding Period , later. Free irs extension form   Worthless securities also include securities that you abandon after March 12, 2008. Free irs extension form To abandon a security, you must permanently surrender and relinquish all rights in the security and receive no consideration in exchange for it. Free irs extension form All the facts and circumstances determine whether the transaction is properly characterized as an abandonment or other type of transaction, such as an actual sale or exchange, contribution to capital, dividend, or gift. Free irs extension form    If you are a cash basis taxpayer and make payments on a negotiable promissory note that you issued for stock that became worthless, you can deduct these payments as losses in the years you actually make the payments. Free irs extension form Do not deduct them in the year the stock became worthless. Free irs extension form How to report loss. Free irs extension form    Report worthless securities in Part I or Part II, whichever applies, of Form 8949. Free irs extension form In column (a), enter “Worthless. Free irs extension form ”    Report your worthless securities transactions on Form 8949 with the correct box checked for these transactions. Free irs extension form See Form 8949 and the Instructions for Form 8949. Free irs extension form For more information on Form 8949 and Schedule D (Form 1040), see Reporting Capital Gains and Losses in chapter 16. Free irs extension form See also Schedule D (Form 1040), Form 8949, and their separate instructions. Free irs extension form Filing a claim for refund. Free irs extension form   If you do not claim a loss for a worthless security on your original return for the year it becomes worthless, you can file a claim for a credit or refund due to the loss. Free irs extension form You must use Form 1040X, Amended U. Free irs extension form S. Free irs extension form Individual Income Tax Return, to amend your return for the year the security became worthless. Free irs extension form You must file it within 7 years from the date your original return for that year had to be filed, or 2 years from the date you paid the tax, whichever is later. Free irs extension form For more information about filing a claim, see Amended Returns and Claims for Refund in chapter 1. Free irs extension form How To Figure Gain or Loss You figure gain or loss on a sale or trade of property by comparing the amount you realize with the adjusted basis of the property. Free irs extension form Gain. Free irs extension form   If the amount you realize from a sale or trade is more than the adjusted basis of the property you transfer, the difference is a gain. Free irs extension form Loss. Free irs extension form   If the adjusted basis of the property you transfer is more than the amount you realize, the difference is a loss. Free irs extension form Adjusted basis. Free irs extension form   The adjusted basis of property is your original cost or other original basis properly adjusted (increased or decreased) for certain items. Free irs extension form See chapter 13 for more information about determining the adjusted basis of property. Free irs extension form Amount realized. Free irs extension form   The amount you realize from a sale or trade of property is everything you receive for the property minus your expenses of sale (such as redemption fees, sales commissions, sales charges, or exit fees). Free irs extension form Amount realized includes the money you receive plus the fair market value of any property or services you receive. Free irs extension form If you received a note or other debt instrument for the property, see How To Figure Gain or Loss in chapter 4 of Publication 550 to figure the amount realized. Free irs extension form If you finance the buyer's purchase of your property and the debt instrument does not provide for adequate stated interest, the unstated interest that you must report as ordinary income will reduce the amount realized from the sale. Free irs extension form For more information, see Publication 537. Free irs extension form Fair market value. Free irs extension form   Fair market value is the price at which the property would change hands between a buyer and a seller, neither being forced to buy or sell and both having reasonable knowledge of all the relevant facts. Free irs extension form Example. Free irs extension form You trade A Company stock with an adjusted basis of $7,000 for B Company stock with a fair market value of $10,000, which is your amount realized. Free irs extension form Your gain is $3,000 ($10,000 − $7,000). Free irs extension form Debt paid off. Free irs extension form    A debt against the property, or against you, that is paid off as a part of the transaction, or that is assumed by the buyer, must be included in the amount realized. Free irs extension form This is true even if neither you nor the buyer is personally liable for the debt. Free irs extension form For example, if you sell or trade property that is subject to a nonrecourse loan, the amount you realize generally includes the full amount of the note assumed by the buyer even if the amount of the note is more than the fair market value of the property. Free irs extension form Example. Free irs extension form You sell stock that you had pledged as security for a bank loan of $8,000. Free irs extension form Your basis in the stock is $6,000. Free irs extension form The buyer pays off your bank loan and pays you $20,000 in cash. Free irs extension form The amount realized is $28,000 ($20,000 + $8,000). Free irs extension form Your gain is $22,000 ($28,000 − $6,000). Free irs extension form Payment of cash. Free irs extension form   If you trade property and cash for other property, the amount you realize is the fair market value of the property you receive. Free irs extension form Determine your gain or loss by subtracting the cash you pay plus the adjusted basis of the property you trade in from the amount you realize. Free irs extension form If the result is a positive number, it is a gain. Free irs extension form If the result is a negative number, it is a loss. Free irs extension form No gain or loss. Free irs extension form   You may have to use a basis for figuring gain that is different from the basis used for figuring loss. Free irs extension form In this case, you may have neither a gain nor a loss. Free irs extension form See Basis Other Than Cost in chapter 13. Free irs extension form Nontaxable Trades This section discusses trades that generally do not result in a taxable gain or deductible loss. Free irs extension form For more information on nontaxable trades, see chapter 1 of Publication 544. Free irs extension form Like-kind exchanges. Free irs extension form   If you trade business or investment property for other business or investment property of a like kind, you do not pay tax on any gain or deduct any loss until you sell or dispose of the property you receive. Free irs extension form To be nontaxable, a trade must meet all six of the following conditions. Free irs extension form The property must be business or investment property. Free irs extension form You must hold both the property you trade and the property you receive for productive use in your trade or business or for investment. Free irs extension form Neither property may be property used for personal purposes, such as your home or family car. Free irs extension form The property must not be held primarily for sale. Free irs extension form The property you trade and the property you receive must not be property you sell to customers, such as merchandise. Free irs extension form The property must not be stocks, bonds, notes, choses in action, certificates of trust or beneficial interest, or other securities or evidences of indebtedness or interest, including partnership interests. Free irs extension form However, see Special rules for mutual ditch, reservoir, or irrigation company stock, in chapter 4 of Publication 550 for an exception. Free irs extension form Also, you can have a nontaxable trade of corporate stocks under a different rule, as discussed later. Free irs extension form There must be a trade of like property. Free irs extension form The trade of real estate for real estate, or personal property for similar personal property, is a trade of like property. Free irs extension form The trade of an apartment house for a store building, or a panel truck for a pickup truck, is a trade of like property. Free irs extension form The trade of a piece of machinery for a store building is not a trade of like property. Free irs extension form Real property located in the United States and real property located outside the United States are not like property. Free irs extension form Also, personal property used predominantly within the United States and personal property used predominantly outside the United States are not like property. Free irs extension form The property to be received must be identified in writing within 45 days after the date you transfer the property given up in the trade. Free irs extension form The property to be received must be received by the earlier of: The 180th day after the date on which you transfer the property given up in the trade, or The due date, including extensions, for your tax return for the year in which the transfer of the property given up occurs. Free irs extension form    If you trade property with a related party in a like-kind exchange, a special rule may apply. Free irs extension form See Related Party Transactions , later in this chapter. Free irs extension form Also, see chapter 1 of Publication 544 for more information on exchanges of business property and special rules for exchanges using qualified intermediaries or involving multiple properties. Free irs extension form Partly nontaxable exchange. Free irs extension form   If you receive money or unlike property in addition to like property, and the above six conditions are met, you have a partly nontaxable trade. Free irs extension form You are taxed on any gain you realize, but only up to the amount of the money and the fair market value of the unlike property you receive. Free irs extension form You cannot deduct a loss. Free irs extension form Like property and unlike property transferred. Free irs extension form   If you give up unlike property in addition to the like property, you must recognize gain or loss on the unlike property you give up. Free irs extension form The gain or loss is the difference between the adjusted basis of the unlike property and its fair market value. Free irs extension form Like property and money transferred. Free irs extension form   If all of the above conditions (1) – (6) are met, you have a nontaxable trade even if you pay money in addition to the like property. Free irs extension form Basis of property received. Free irs extension form   To figure the basis of the property received, see Nontaxable Exchanges in chapter 13. Free irs extension form How to report. Free irs extension form   You must report the trade of like property on Form 8824. Free irs extension form If you figure a recognized gain or loss on Form 8824, report it on Schedule D (Form 1040), or on Form 4797, Sales of Business Property, whichever applies. Free irs extension form See the instructions for Line 22 in the Instructions for Form 8824. Free irs extension form   For information on using Form 4797, see chapter 4 of Publication 544. Free irs extension form Corporate stocks. Free irs extension form   The following trades of corporate stocks generally do not result in a taxable gain or a deductible loss. Free irs extension form Corporate reorganizations. Free irs extension form   In some instances, a company will give you common stock for preferred stock, preferred stock for common stock, or stock in one corporation for stock in another corporation. Free irs extension form If this is a result of a merger, recapitalization, transfer to a controlled corporation, bankruptcy, corporate division, corporate acquisition, or other corporate reorganization, you do not recognize gain or loss. Free irs extension form Stock for stock of the same corporation. Free irs extension form   You can exchange common stock for common stock or preferred stock for preferred stock in the same corporation without having a recognized gain or loss. Free irs extension form This is true for a trade between two stockholders as well as a trade between a stockholder and the corporation. Free irs extension form Convertible stocks and bonds. Free irs extension form   You generally will not have a recognized gain or loss if you convert bonds into stock or preferred stock into common stock of the same corporation according to a conversion privilege in the terms of the bond or the preferred stock certificate. Free irs extension form Property for stock of a controlled corporation. Free irs extension form   If you transfer property to a corporation solely in exchange for stock in that corporation, and immediately after the trade you are in control of the corporation, you ordinarily will not recognize a gain or loss. Free irs extension form This rule applies both to individuals and to groups who transfer property to a corporation. Free irs extension form It does not apply if the corporation is an investment company. Free irs extension form   For this purpose, to be in control of a corporation, you or your group of transferors must own, immediately after the exchange, at least 80% of the total combined voting power of all classes of stock entitled to vote and at least 80% of the outstanding shares of each class of nonvoting stock of the corporation. Free irs extension form   If this provision applies to you, you may have to attach to your return a complete statement of all facts pertinent to the exchange. Free irs extension form For details, see Regulations section 1. Free irs extension form 351-3. Free irs extension form Additional information. Free irs extension form   For more information on trades of stock, see Nontaxable Trades in chapter 4 of Publication 550. Free irs extension form Insurance policies and annuities. Free irs extension form   You will not have a recognized gain or loss if the insured or annuitant is the same under both contracts and you trade: A life insurance contract for another life insurance contract or for an endowment or annuity contract or for a qualified long-term care insurance contract, An endowment contract for another endowment contract that provides for regular payments beginning at a date no later than the beginning date under the old contract or for an annuity contract or for a qualified long-term insurance contract, An annuity contract for annuity contract or for a qualified long-term care insurance contract, or A qualified long-term care insurance contract for a qualified long-term care insurance contract. Free irs extension form   You also may not have to recognize gain or loss on an exchange of a portion of an annuity contract for another annuity contract. Free irs extension form For transfers completed before October 24, 2011, see Revenue Ruling 2003-76 in Internal Revenue Bulletin 2003-33 and Revenue Procedure 2008-24 in Internal Revenue Bulletin 2008-13.

Free irs extension form   For tax years beginning after December 31, 2010, amounts received as an annuity for a period of 10 years or more, or for the lives of one or more individuals, under any portion of an annuity, endowment, or life insurance contract, are treated as a separate contract and are considered partial annuities. Free irs extension form A portion of an annuity, endowment, or life insurance contract may be annuitized, provided that the annuitization period is for 10 years or more or for the lives of one or more individuals. Free irs extension form The investment in the contract is allocated between the part of the contract from which amounts are received as an annuity and the part of the contract from which amounts are not received as an annuity. Free irs extension form   Exchanges of contracts not included in this list, such as an annuity contract for an endowment contract, or an annuity or endowment contract for a life insurance contract, are taxable. Free irs extension form Demutualization of life insurance companies. Free irs extension form   If you received stock in exchange for your equity interest as a policyholder or an annuitant, you generally will not have a recognized gain or loss. Free irs extension form See Demutualization of Life Insurance Companies in Publication 550. Free irs extension form U. Free irs extension form S. Free irs extension form Treasury notes or bonds. Free irs extension form   You can trade certain issues of U. Free irs extension form S. Free irs extension form Treasury obligations for other issues designated by the Secretary of the Treasury, with no gain or loss recognized on the trade. Free irs extension form See Savings bonds traded in chapter 1 of Publication 550 for more information. Free irs extension form Transfers Between Spouses Generally, 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 if incident to a divorce, a former spouse. Free irs extension form This nonrecognition rule does not apply in the following situations. Free irs extension form The recipient spouse or former spouse is a nonresident alien. Free irs extension form Property is transferred in trust and liability exceeds basis. Free irs extension form Gain must be recognized to the extent the amount of the liabilities assumed by the trust, plus any liabilities on the property, exceed the adjusted basis of the property. Free irs extension form For other situations, see Transfers Between Spouses in chapter 4 of Publication 550. Free irs extension form Any transfer of property to a spouse or former spouse on which gain or loss is not recognized is treated by the recipient as a gift and is not considered a sale or exchange. Free irs extension form The recipient's basis in the property will be the same as the adjusted basis of the giver immediately before the transfer. Free irs extension form This carryover basis rule applies whether the adjusted basis of the transferred property is less than, equal to, or greater than either its fair market value at the time of transfer or any consideration paid by the recipient. Free irs extension form This rule applies for purposes of determining loss as well as gain. Free irs extension form Any gain recognized on a transfer in trust increases the basis. Free irs extension form A transfer of property is incident to a divorce if the transfer occurs within 1 year after the date on which the marriage ends, or if the transfer is related to the ending of the marriage. Free irs extension form Related Party Transactions Special rules apply to the sale or trade of property between related parties. Free irs extension form Gain on sale or trade of depreciable property. Free irs extension form   Your gain from the sale or trade of property to a related party may be ordinary income, rather than capital gain, if the property can be depreciated by the party receiving it. Free irs extension form See chapter 3 of Publication 544 for more information. Free irs extension form Like-kind exchanges. Free irs extension form   Generally, if you trade business or investment property for other business or investment property of a like kind, no gain or loss is recognized. Free irs extension form See Like-kind exchanges , earlier, under Nontaxable Trades. Free irs extension form   This rule also applies to trades of property between related parties, defined next under Losses on sales or trades of property. Free irs extension form However, if either you or the related party disposes of the like property within 2 years after the trade, you both must report any gain or loss not recognized on the original trade on your return filed for the year in which the later disposition occurs. Free irs extension form See Related Party Transactions in chapter 4 of Publication 550 for exceptions. Free irs extension form Losses on sales or trades of property. Free irs extension form   You cannot deduct a loss on the sale or trade of property, other than a distribution in complete liquidation of a corporation, if the transaction is directly or indirectly between you and the following related parties. Free irs extension form Members of your family. Free irs extension form This includes only your brothers and sisters, half-brothers and half-sisters, spouse, ancestors (parents, grandparents, etc. Free irs extension form ), and lineal descendants (children, grandchildren, etc. Free irs extension form ). Free irs extension form A partnership in which you directly or indirectly own more than 50% of the capital interest or the profits interest. Free irs extension form A corporation in which you directly or indirectly own more than 50% in value of the outstanding stock. Free irs extension form (See Constructive ownership of stock , later. Free irs extension form ) A tax-exempt charitable or educational organization directly or indirectly controlled, in any manner or by any method, by you or by a member of your family, whether or not this control is legally enforceable. Free irs extension form   In addition, a loss on the sale or trade of property is not deductible if the transaction is directly or indirectly between the following related parties. Free irs extension form A grantor and fiduciary, or the fiduciary and beneficiary, of any trust. Free irs extension form Fiduciaries of two different trusts, or the fiduciary and beneficiary of two different trusts, if the same person is the grantor of both trusts. Free irs extension form A trust fiduciary and a corporation of which more than 50% in value of the outstanding stock is directly or indirectly owned by or for the trust, or by or for the grantor of the trust. Free irs extension form A corporation and a partnership if the same persons own more than 50% in value of the outstanding stock of the corporation and more than 50% of the capital interest, or the profits interest, in the partnership. Free irs extension form Two S corporations if the same persons own more than 50% in value of the outstanding stock of each corporation. Free irs extension form Two corporations, one of which is an S corporation, if the same persons own more than 50% in value of the outstanding stock of each corporation. Free irs extension form An executor and a beneficiary of an estate (except in the case of a sale or trade to satisfy a pecuniary bequest). Free irs extension form Two corporations that are members of the same controlled group. Free irs extension form (Under certain conditions, however, these losses are not disallowed but must be deferred. Free irs extension form ) Two partnerships if the same persons own, directly or indirectly, more than 50% of the capital interests or the profit interests in both partnerships. Free irs extension form Multiple property sales or trades. Free irs extension form   If you sell or trade to a related party a number of blocks of stock or pieces of property in a lump sum, you must figure the gain or loss separately for each block of stock or piece of property. Free irs extension form The gain on each item may be taxable. Free irs extension form However, you cannot deduct the loss on any item. Free irs extension form Also, you cannot reduce gains from the sales of any of these items by losses on the sales of any of the other items. Free irs extension form Indirect transactions. Free irs extension form   You cannot deduct your loss on the sale of stock through your broker if, under a prearranged plan, a related party buys the same stock you had owned. Free irs extension form This does not apply to a trade between related parties through an exchange that is purely coincidental and is not prearranged. Free irs extension form Constructive ownership of stock. Free irs extension form   In determining whether a person directly or indirectly owns any of the outstanding stock of a corporation, the following rules apply. Free irs extension form Rule 1. Free irs extension form   Stock directly or indirectly owned by or for a corporation, partnership, estate, or trust is considered owned proportionately by or for its shareholders, partners, or beneficiaries. Free irs extension form Rule 2. Free irs extension form   An individual is considered to own the stock directly or indirectly owned by or for his or her family. Free irs extension form Family includes only brothers and sisters, half-brothers and half-sisters, spouse, ancestors, and lineal descendants. Free irs extension form Rule 3. Free irs extension form   An individual owning, other than by applying rule 2, any stock in a corporation is considered to own the stock directly or indirectly owned by or for his or her partner. Free irs extension form Rule 4. Free irs extension form   When applying rule 1, 2, or 3, stock constructively owned by a person under rule 1 is treated as actually owned by that person. Free irs extension form But stock constructively owned by an individual under rule 2 or rule 3 is not treated as owned by that individual for again applying either rule 2 or rule 3 to make another person the constructive owner of the stock. Free irs extension form Property received from a related party. Free irs extension form    If you sell or trade at a gain property you acquired from a related party, you recognize the gain only to the extent it is more than the loss previously disallowed to the related party. Free irs extension form This rule applies only if you are the original transferee and you acquired the property by purchase or exchange. Free irs extension form This rule does not apply if the related party's loss was disallowed because of the wash sale rules described in chapter 4 of Publication 550 under Wash Sales. Free irs extension form   If you sell or trade at a loss property you acquired from a related party, you cannot recognize the loss that was not allowed to the related party. Free irs extension form Example 1. Free irs extension form Your brother sells you stock for $7,600. Free irs extension form His cost basis is $10,000. Free irs extension form Your brother cannot deduct the loss of $2,400. Free irs extension form Later, you sell the same stock to an unrelated party for $10,500, realizing a gain of $2,900. Free irs extension form Your reportable gain is $500 (the $2,900 gain minus the $2,400 loss not allowed to your brother). Free irs extension form Example 2. Free irs extension form If, in Example 1, you sold the stock for $6,900 instead of $10,500, your recognized loss is only $700 (your $7,600 basis minus $6,900). Free irs extension form You cannot deduct the loss that was not allowed to your brother. Free irs extension form Capital Gains and Losses This section discusses the tax treatment of gains and losses from different types of investment transactions. Free irs extension form Character of gain or loss. Free irs extension form   You need to classify your gains and losses as either ordinary or capital gains or losses. Free irs extension form You then need to classify your capital gains and losses as either short term or long term. Free irs extension form If you have long-term gains and losses, you must identify your 28% rate gains and losses. Free irs extension form If you have a net capital gain, you must also identify any unrecaptured section 1250 gain. Free irs extension form   The correct classification and identification helps you figure the limit on capital losses and the correct tax on capital gains. Free irs extension form Reporting capital gains and losses is explained in chapter 16. Free irs extension form Capital or Ordinary Gain or Loss If you have a taxable gain or a deductible loss from a transaction, it may be either a capital gain or loss or an ordinary gain or loss, depending on the circumstances. Free irs extension form Generally, a sale or trade of a capital asset (defined next) results in a capital gain or loss. Free irs extension form A sale or trade of a noncapital asset generally results in ordinary gain or loss. Free irs extension form Depending on the circumstances, a gain or loss on a sale or trade of property used in a trade or business may be treated as either capital or ordinary, as explained in Publication 544. Free irs extension form In some situations, part of your gain or loss may be a capital gain or loss and part may be an ordinary gain or loss. Free irs extension form Capital Assets and Noncapital Assets For the most part, everything you own and use for personal purposes, pleasure, or investment is a capital asset. Free irs extension form Some examples are: Stocks or bonds held in your personal account, A house owned and used by you and your family, Household furnishings, A car used for pleasure or commuting, Coin or stamp collections, Gems and jewelry, and Gold, silver, or any other metal. Free irs extension form Any property you own is a capital asset, except the following noncapital assets. Free irs extension form Property held mainly for sale to customers or property that will physically become a part of the merchandise for sale to customers. Free irs extension form For an exception, see Capital Asset Treatment for Self-Created Musical Works , later. Free irs extension form Depreciable property used in your trade or business, even if fully depreciated. Free irs extension form Real property used in your trade or business. Free irs extension form A copyright, a literary, musical, or artistic composition, a letter or memorandum, or similar property that is: Created by your personal efforts, Prepared or produced for you (in the case of a letter, memorandum, or similar property), or Acquired under circumstances (for example, by gift) entitling you to the basis of the person who created the property or for whom it was prepared or produced. Free irs extension form For an exception to this rule, see Capital Asset Treatment for Self-Created Musical Works , later. Free irs extension form Accounts or notes receivable acquired in the ordinary course of a trade or business for services rendered or from the sale of property described in (1). Free irs extension form U. Free irs extension form S. Free irs extension form Government publications that you received from the government free or for less than the normal sales price, or that you acquired under circumstances entitling you to the basis of someone who received the publications free or for less than the normal sales price. Free irs extension form Certain commodities derivative financial instruments held by commodities derivatives dealers. Free irs extension form Hedging transactions, but only if the transaction is clearly identified as a hedging transaction before the close of the day on which it was acquired, originated, or entered into. Free irs extension form Supplies of a type you regularly use or consume in the ordinary course of your trade or business. Free irs extension form Investment Property Investment property is a capital asset. Free irs extension form Any gain or loss from its sale or trade is generally a capital gain or loss. Free irs extension form Gold, silver, stamps, coins, gems, etc. Free irs extension form   These are capital assets except when they are held for sale by a dealer. Free irs extension form Any gain or loss you have from their sale or trade generally is a capital gain or loss. Free irs extension form Stocks, stock rights, and bonds. Free irs extension form   All of these (including stock received as a dividend) are capital assets except when held for sale by a securities dealer. Free irs extension form However, if you own small business stock, see Losses on Section 1244 (Small Business) Stock , later, and Losses on Small Business Investment Company Stock, in chapter 4 of Publication 550. Free irs extension form Personal Use Property Property held for personal use only, rather than for investment, is a capital asset, and you must report a gain from its sale as a capital gain. Free irs extension form However, you cannot deduct a loss from selling personal use property. Free irs extension form Capital Asset Treatment for Self-Created Musical Works You can elect to treat musical compositions and copyrights in musical works as capital assets when you sell or exchange them if: Your personal efforts created the property, or You acquired the property under circumstances (for example, by gift) entitling you to the basis of the person who created the property or for whom it was prepared or produced. Free irs extension form You must make a separate election for each musical composition (or copyright in a musical work) sold or exchanged during the tax year. Free irs extension form You must make the election on or before the due date (including extensions) of the income tax return for the tax year of the sale or exchange. Free irs extension form You must make the election on Form 8949 by treating the sale or exchange as the sale or exchange of a capital asset, according to Form 8949, Schedule D (Form 1040), and their separate instructions. Free irs extension form For more information on Form 8949 and Schedule D (Form 1040), see Reporting Capital Gains and Losses in chapter 16. Free irs extension form See also Schedule D (Form 1040), Form 8949, and their separate instructions. Free irs extension form You can revoke the election if you have IRS approval. Free irs extension form To get IRS approval, you must submit a request for a letter ruling under the appropriate IRS revenue procedure. Free irs extension form See, for example, Rev. Free irs extension form Proc. Free irs extension form 2013-1, corrected by Announcement 2013–9, and amplified and modified by Rev. Free irs extension form Proc. Free irs extension form 2013–32, available at www. Free irs extension form irs. Free irs extension form gov/irb/2013-01_IRB/ar06. Free irs extension form html. Free irs extension form Alternatively, you are granted an automatic 6-month extension from the due date of your income tax return (excluding extensions) to revoke the election, provided you timely file your income tax return, and within this 6-month extension period, you file Form 1040X that treats the sale or exchange as the sale or exchange of property that is not a capital asset. Free irs extension form Discounted Debt Instruments Treat your gain or loss on the sale, redemption, or retirement of a bond or other debt instrument originally issued at a discount or bought at a discount as capital gain or loss, except as explained in the following discussions. Free irs extension form Short-term government obligations. Free irs extension form   Treat gains on short-term federal, state, or local government obligations (other than tax-exempt obligations) as ordinary income up to your ratable share of the acquisition discount. Free irs extension form This treatment applies to obligations with a fixed maturity date not more than 1 year from the date of issue. Free irs extension form Acquisition discount is the stated redemption price at maturity minus your basis in the obligation. Free irs extension form   However, do not treat these gains as income to the extent you previously included the discount in income. Free irs extension form See Discount on Short-Term Obligations in chapter 1 of Publication 550. Free irs extension form Short-term nongovernment obligations. Free irs extension form   Treat gains on short-term nongovernment obligations as ordinary income up to your ratable share of original issue discount (OID). Free irs extension form This treatment applies to obligations with a fixed maturity date of not more than 1 year from the date of issue. Free irs extension form   However, to the extent you previously included the discount in income, you do not have to include it in income again. Free irs extension form See Discount on Short-Term Obligations in chapter 1 of Publication 550. Free irs extension form Tax-exempt state and local government bonds. Free irs extension form   If these bonds were originally issued at a discount before September 4, 1982, or you acquired them before March 2, 1984, treat your part of OID as tax-exempt interest. Free irs extension form To figure your gain or loss on the sale or trade of these bonds, reduce the amount realized by your part of OID. Free irs extension form   If the bonds were issued after September 3, 1982, and acquired after March 1, 1984, increase the adjusted basis by your part of OID to figure gain or loss. Free irs extension form For more information on the basis of these bonds, see Discounted Debt Instruments in chapter 4 of Publication 550. Free irs extension form   Any gain from market discount is usually taxable on disposition or redemption of tax-exempt bonds. Free irs extension form If you bought the bonds before May 1, 1993, the gain from market discount is capital gain. Free irs extension form If you bought the bonds after April 30, 1993, the gain is ordinary income. Free irs extension form   You figure the market discount by subtracting the price you paid for the bond from the sum of the original issue price of the bond and the amount of accumulated OID from the date of issue that represented interest to any earlier holders. Free irs extension form For more information, see Market Discount Bonds in chapter 1 of Publication 550. Free irs extension form    A loss on the sale or other disposition of a tax-exempt state or local government bond is deductible as a capital loss. Free irs extension form Redeemed before maturity. Free irs extension form   If a state or local bond issued before June 9, 1980, is redeemed before it matures, the OID is not taxable to you. Free irs extension form   If a state or local bond issued after June 8, 1980, is redeemed before it matures, the part of OID earned while you hold the bond is not taxable to you. Free irs extension form However, you must report the unearned part of OID as a capital gain. Free irs extension form Example. Free irs extension form On July 2, 2002, the date of issue, you bought a 20-year, 6% municipal bond for $800. Free irs extension form The face amount of the bond was $1,000. Free irs extension form The $200 discount was OID. Free irs extension form At the time the bond was issued, the issuer had no intention of redeeming it before it matured. Free irs extension form The bond was callable at its face amount beginning 10 years after the issue date. Free irs extension form The issuer redeemed the bond at the end of 11 years (July 2, 2013) for its face amount of $1,000 plus accrued annual interest of $60. Free irs extension form The OID earned during the time you held the bond, $73, is not taxable. Free irs extension form The $60 accrued annual interest also is not taxable. Free irs extension form However, you must report the unearned part of OID ($127) as a capital gain. Free irs extension form Long-term debt instruments issued after 1954 and before May 28, 1969 (or before July 2, 1982, if a government instrument). Free irs extension form   If you sell, trade, or redeem for a gain one of these debt instruments, the part of your gain that is not more than your ratable share of the OID at the time of the sale or redemption is ordinary income. Free irs extension form The rest of the gain is capital gain. Free irs extension form If, however, there was an intention to call the debt instrument before maturity, all of your gain that is not more than the entire OID is treated as ordinary income at the time of the sale. Free irs extension form This treatment of taxable gain also applies to corporate instruments issued after May 27, 1969, under a written commitment that was binding on May 27, 1969, and at all times thereafter. Free irs extension form Long-term debt instruments issued after May 27, 1969 (or after July 1, 1982, if a government instrument). Free irs extension form   If you hold one of these debt instruments, you must include a part of OID in your gross income each year you own the instrument. Free irs extension form Your basis in that debt instrument is increased by the amount of OID that you have included in your gross income. Free irs extension form See Original Issue Discount (OID) in chapter 7 for information about OID that you must report on your tax return. Free irs extension form   If you sell or trade the debt instrument before maturity, your gain is a capital gain. Free irs extension form However, if at the time the instrument was originally issued there was an intention to call it before its maturity, your gain generally is ordinary income to the extent of the entire OID reduced by any amounts of OID previously includible in your income. Free irs extension form In this case, the rest of the gain is capital gain. Free irs extension form Market discount bonds. Free irs extension form   If the debt instrument has market discount and you chose to include the discount in income as it accrued, increase your basis in the debt instrument by the accrued discount to figure capital gain or loss on its disposition. Free irs extension form If you did not choose to include the discount in income as it accrued, you must report gain as ordinary interest income up to the instrument's accrued market discount. Free irs extension form The rest of the gain is capital gain. Free irs extension form See Market Discount Bonds in chapter 1 of Publication 550. Free irs extension form   A different rule applies to market discount bonds issued before July 19, 1984, and purchased by you before May 1, 1993. Free irs extension form See Market discount bonds under Discounted Debt Instruments in chapter 4 of Publication 550. Free irs extension form Retirement of debt instrument. Free irs extension form   Any amount you receive on the retirement of a debt instrument is treated in the same way as if you had sold or traded that instrument. Free irs extension form Notes of individuals. Free irs extension form   If you hold an obligation of an individual issued with OID after March 1, 1984, you generally must include the OID in your income currently, and your gain or loss on its sale or retirement is generally capital gain or loss. Free irs extension form An exception to this treatment applies if the obligation is a loan between individuals and all the following requirements are met. Free irs extension form The lender is not in the business of lending money. Free irs extension form The amount of the loan, plus the amount of any outstanding prior loans, is $10,000 or less. Free irs extension form Avoiding federal tax is not one of the principal purposes of the loan. Free irs extension form   If the exception applies, or the obligation was issued before March 2, 1984, you do not include the OID in your income currently. Free irs extension form When you sell or redeem the obligation, the part of your gain that is not more than your accrued share of OID at that time is ordinary income. Free irs extension form The rest of the gain, if any, is capital gain. Free irs extension form Any loss on the sale or redemption is capital loss. Free irs extension form Deposit in Insolvent or Bankrupt Financial Institution If you lose money you have on deposit in a bank, credit union, or other financial institution that becomes insolvent or bankrupt, you may be able to deduct your loss in one of three ways. Free irs extension form Ordinary loss. Free irs extension form Casualty loss. Free irs extension form Nonbusiness bad debt (short-term capital loss). Free irs extension form  For more information, see Deposit in Insolvent or Bankrupt Financial Institution, in chapter 4 of Publication 550. Free irs extension form Sale of Annuity The part of any gain on the sale of an annuity contract before its maturity date that is based on interest accumulated on the contract is ordinary income. Free irs extension form Losses on Section 1244 (Small Business) Stock You can deduct as an ordinary loss, rather than as a capital loss, your loss on the sale, trade, or worthlessness of section 1244 stock. Free irs extension form Report the loss on Form 4797, line 10. Free irs extension form Any gain on section 1244 stock is a capital gain if the stock is a capital asset in your hands. Free irs extension form Report the gain on Form 8949. Free irs extension form See Losses on Section 1244 (Small Business) Stock in chapter 4 of Publication 550. Free irs extension form For more information on Form 8949 and Schedule D (Form 1040), see Reporting Capital Gains and Losses in chapter 16. Free irs extension form See also Schedule D (Form 1040), Form 8949, and their separate instructions. Free irs extension form Holding Period If you sold or traded investment property, you must determine your holding period for the property. Free irs extension form Your holding period determines whether any capital gain or loss was a short-term or long-term capital gain or loss. Free irs extension form Long-term or short-term. Free irs extension form   If you hold investment property more than 1 year, any capital gain or loss is a long-term capital gain or loss. Free irs extension form If you hold the property 1 year or less, any capital gain or loss is a short-term capital gain or loss. Free irs extension form   To determine how long you held the investment property, begin counting on the date after the day you acquired the property. Free irs extension form The day you disposed of the property is part of your holding period. Free irs extension form Example. Free irs extension form If you bought investment property on February 6, 2012, and sold it on February 6, 2013, your holding period is not more than 1 year and you have a short-term capital gain or loss. Free irs extension form If you sold it on February 7, 2013, your holding period is more than 1 year and you will have a long-term capital gain or loss. Free irs extension form Securities traded on established market. Free irs extension form   For securities traded on an established securities market, your holding period begins the day after the trade date you bought the securities, and ends on the trade date you sold them. Free irs extension form    Do not confuse the trade date with the settlement date, which is the date by which the stock must be delivered and payment must be made. Free irs extension form Example. Free irs extension form You are a cash method, calendar year taxpayer. Free irs extension form You sold stock at a gain on December 30, 2013. Free irs extension form According to the rules of the stock exchange, the sale was closed by delivery of the stock 4 trading days after the sale, on January 6, 2014. Free irs extension form You received payment of the sales price on that same day. Free irs extension form Report your gain on your 2013 return, even though you received the payment in 2014. Free irs extension form The gain is long term or short term depending on whether you held the stock more than 1 year. Free irs extension form Your holding period ended on December 30. Free irs extension form If you had sold the stock at a loss, you would also report it on your 2013 return. Free irs extension form U. Free irs extension form S. Free irs extension form Treasury notes and bonds. Free irs extension form   The holding period of U. Free irs extension form S. Free irs extension form Treasury notes and bonds sold at auction on the basis of yield starts the day after the Secretary of the Treasury, through news releases, gives notification of acceptance to successful bidders. Free irs extension form The holding period of U. Free irs extension form S. Free irs extension form Treasury notes and bonds sold through an offering on a subscription basis at a specified yield starts the day after the subscription is submitted. Free irs extension form Automatic investment service. Free irs extension form   In determining your holding period for shares bought by the bank or other agent, full shares are considered bought first and any fractional shares are considered bought last. Free irs extension form Your holding period starts on the day after the bank's purchase date. Free irs extension form If a share was bought over more than one purchase date, your holding period for that share is a split holding period. Free irs extension form A part of the share is considered to have been bought on each date that stock was bought by the bank with the proceeds of available funds. Free irs extension form Nontaxable trades. Free irs extension form   If you acquire investment property in a trade for other investment property and your basis for the new property is determined, in whole or in part, by your basis in the old property, your holding period for the new property begins on the day following the date you acquired the old property. Free irs extension form Property received as a gift. Free irs extension form   If you receive a gift of property and your basis is determined by the donor's adjusted basis, your holding period is considered to have started on the same day the donor's holding period started. Free irs extension form   If your basis is determined by the fair market value of the property, your holding period starts on the day after the date of the gift. Free irs extension form Inherited property. Free irs extension form   Generally, if you inherited investment property, your capital gain or loss on any later disposition of that property is long-term capital gain or loss. Free irs extension form This is true regardless of how long you actually held the property. Free irs extension form However, if you inherited property from someone who died in 2010, see the information below. Free irs extension form Inherited property from someone who died in 2010. Free irs extension form   If you inherit investment property from a decedent who died in 2010, and the executor of the decedent's estate made the election to file Form 8939, refer to the information provided by the executor or see Publication 4895, Tax Treatment of Property Acquired From a Decedent Dying in 2010, to determine your holding period. Free irs extension form Real property bought. Free irs extension form   To figure how long you have held real property bought under an unconditional contract, begin counting on the day after you received title to it or on the day after you took possession of it and assumed the burdens and privileges of ownership, whichever happened first. Free irs extension form However, taking delivery or possession of real property under an option agreement is not enough to start the holding period. Free irs extension form The holding period cannot start until there is an actual contract of sale. Free irs extension form The holding period of the seller cannot end before that time. Free irs extension form Real property repossessed. Free irs extension form   If you sell real property but keep a security interest in it, and then later repossess the property under the terms of the sales contract, your holding period for a later sale includes the period you held the property before the original sale and the period after the repossession. Free irs extension form Your holding period does not include the time between the original sale and the repossession. Free irs extension form That is, it does not include the period during which the first buyer held the property. Free irs extension form Stock dividends. Free irs extension form   The holding period for stock you received as a taxable stock dividend begins on the date of distribution. Free irs extension form   The holding period for new stock you received as a nontaxable stock dividend begins on the same day as the holding period of the old stock. Free irs extension form This rule also applies to stock acquired in a “spin-off,” which is a distribution of stock or securities in a controlled corporation. Free irs extension form Nontaxable stock rights. Free irs extension form   Your holding period for nontaxable stock rights begins on the same day as the holding period of the underlying stock. Free irs extension form The holding period for stock acquired through the exercise of stock rights begins on the date the right was exercised. Free irs extension form Nonbusiness Bad Debts If someone owes you money that you cannot collect, you have a bad debt. Free irs extension form You may be able to deduct the amount owed to you when you figure your tax for the year the debt becomes worthless. Free irs extension form Generally, nonbusiness bad debts are bad debts that did not come from operating your trade or business, and are deductible as short-term capital losses. Free irs extension form To be deductible, nonbusiness bad debts must be totally worthless. Free irs extension form You cannot deduct a partly worthless nonbusiness debt. Free irs extension form Genuine debt required. Free irs extension form   A debt must be genuine for you to deduct a loss. Free irs extension form A debt is genuine if it arises from a debtor-creditor relationship based on a valid and enforceable obligation to repay a fixed or determinable sum of money. Free irs extension form Basis in bad debt required. Free irs extension form    To deduct a bad debt, you must have a basis in it—that is, you must have already included the amount in your income or loaned out your cash. Free irs extension form For example, you cannot claim a bad debt deduction for court-ordered child support not paid to you by your former spouse. Free irs extension form If you are a cash method taxpayer (as most individuals are), you generally cannot take a bad debt deduction for unpaid salaries, wages, rents, fees, interest, dividends, and similar items. Free irs extension form When deductible. Free irs extension form   You can take a bad debt deduction only in the year the debt becomes worthless. Free irs extension form You do not have to wait until a debt is due to determine whether it is worthless. Free irs extension form A debt becomes worthless when there is no longer any chance that the amount owed will be paid. Free irs extension form   It is not necessary to go to court if you can show that a judgment from the court would be uncollectible. Free irs extension form You must only show that you have taken reasonable steps to collect the debt. Free irs extension form Bankruptcy of your debtor is generally good evidence of the worthlessness of at least a part of an unsecured and unpreferred debt. Free irs extension form How to report bad debts. Free irs extension form    Deduct nonbusiness bad debts as short-term capital losses on Form 8949. Free irs extension form    Make sure you report your bad debt(s) (and any other short-term transactions for which you did not receive a Form 1099-B) on Form 8949, Part I, with box C checked. Free irs extension form    For more information on Form 8949 and Schedule D (Form 1040), see Reporting Capital Gains and Losses in chapter 16. Free irs extension form See also Schedule D (Form 1040), Form 8949, and their separate instructions. Free irs extension form   For each bad debt, attach a statement to your return that contains: A description of the debt, including the amount, and the date it became due, The name of the debtor, and any business or family relationship between you and the debtor, The efforts you made to collect the debt, and Why you decided the debt was worthless. Free irs extension form For example, you could show that the borrower has declared bankruptcy, or that legal action to collect would probably not result in payment of any part of the debt. Free irs extension form Filing a claim for refund. Free irs extension form    If you do not deduct a bad debt on your original return for the year it becomes worthless, you can file a claim for a credit or refund due to the bad debt. Free irs extension form To do this, use Form 1040X to amend your return for the year the debt became worthless. Free irs extension form You must file it within 7 years from the date your original return for that year had to be filed, or 2 years from the date you paid the tax, whichever is later. Free irs extension form For more information about filing a claim, see Amended Returns and Claims for Refund in chapter 1. Free irs extension form Additional information. Free irs extension form   For more information, see Nonbusiness Bad Debts in Publication 550. Free irs extension form For information on business bad debts, see chapter 10 of Publication 535, Business Expenses. Free irs extension form Wash Sales You cannot deduct losses from sales or trades of stock or securities in a wash sale. Free irs extension form A wash sale occurs when you sell or trade stock or securities at a loss and within 30 days before or after the sale you: Buy substantially identical stock or securities, Acquire substantially identical stock or securities in a fully taxable trade, Acquire a contract or option to buy substantially identical stock or securities, or Acquire substantially identical stock for your individual retirement account (IRA) or Roth IRA. Free irs extension form If your loss was disallowed because of the wash sale rules, add the disallowed loss to the cost of the new stock or securities (except in (4) above). Free irs extension form The result is your basis in the new stock or securities. Free irs extension form This adjustment postpones the loss deduction until the disposition of the new stock or securities. Free irs extension form Your holding period for the new stock or securities includes the holding period of the stock or securities sold. Free irs extension form For more information, see Wash Sales, in chapter 4 of Publication 550. Free irs extension form Rollover of Gain From Publicly Traded Securities You may qualify for a tax-free rollover of certain gains from the sale of publicly traded securities. Free irs extension form This means that if you buy certain replacement property and make the choice described in this section, you postpone part or all of your gain. Free irs extension form You postpone the gain by adjusting the basis of the replacement property as described in Basis of replacement property , later. Free irs extension form This postpones your gain until the year you dispose of the replacement property. Free irs extension form You qualify to make this choice if you meet all the following tests. Free irs extension form You sell publicly traded securities at a gain. Free irs extension form Publicly traded securities are securities traded on an established securities market. Free irs extension form Your gain from the sale is a capital gain. Free irs extension form During the 60-day period beginning on the date of the sale, you buy replacement property. Free irs extension form This replacement property must be either common stock of, or a partnership interest in a specialized small business investment company (SSBIC). Free irs extension form This is any partnership or corporation licensed by the Small Business Administration under section 301(d) of the Small Business Investment Act of 1958, as in effect on May 13, 1993. Free irs extension form Amount of gain recognized. Free irs extension form   If you make the choice described in this section, you must recognize gain only up to the following amount. Free irs extension form The amount realized on the sale, minus The cost of any common stock or partnership interest in an SSBIC that you bought during the 60-day period beginning on the date of sale (and did not previously take into account on an earlier sale of publicly traded securities). Free irs extension form  If this amount is less than the amount of your gain, you can postpone the rest of your gain, subject to the limit described next. Free irs extension form If this amount is equal to or more than the amount of your gain, you must recognize the full amount of your gain. Free irs extension form Limit on gain postponed. Free irs extension form   The amount of gain you can postpone each year is limited to the smaller of: $50,000 ($25,000 if you are married and file a separate return), or $500,000 ($250,000 if you are married and file a separate return), minus the amount of gain you postponed for all earlier years. Free irs extension form Basis of replacement property. Free irs extension form   You must subtract the amount of postponed gain from the basis of your replacement property. Free irs extension form How to report and postpone gain.
