H&r block tax software   Certain exchanges of property are not taxable. H&r block tax software This means any gain from the exchange is not recognized and you cannot deduct any loss. H&r block tax software Your gain or loss will not be recognized until you sell or otherwise dispose of the property you receive. H&r block tax software Like-kind exchanges. H&r block tax software   A like-kind exchange is the exchange of property for the same kind of property. H&r block tax software It is the most common type of nontaxable exchange.

H&r block tax software   An installment sale is a sale of property where you receive at least one payment after the tax year of the sale. H&r block tax software If you finance the buyer's purchase of your property, instead of having the buyer get a loan or mortgage from a third party, you probably have an installment sale. H&r block tax software   For more information about installment sales, see Publication 537, Installment Sales. H&r block tax software Sale of a business. H&r block tax software   The sale of a business usually is not a sale of one asset. H&r block tax software Instead, all the assets of the business are sold. H&r block tax software Generally, when this occurs, each asset is treated as being sold separately for determining the treatment of gain or loss. H&r block tax software   Both the buyer and seller involved in the sale of a business must report to the IRS the allocation of the sales price among the business assets.

H&r block tax software   The cost or purchase price of property is usually its basis for figuring the gain or loss from its sale or other disposition. H&r block tax software However, if you acquired the property by gift, inheritance, or in some way other than buying it, you must use a basis other than its cost. H&r block tax software For more information about basis, see Publication 551, Basis of Assets. H&r block tax software Adjusted basis. H&r block tax software   The adjusted basis of property is your original cost or other basis plus certain additions, and minus certain deductions such as depreciation and casualty losses. H&r block tax software In determining gain or loss, the costs of transferring property to a new owner, such as selling expenses, are added to the adjusted basis of the property. H&r block tax software Amount realized. H&r block tax software   The amount you realize from a disposition is the total of all money you receive plus the fair market value of all property or services you receive. H&r block tax software The amount you realize also includes any of your liabilities that were assumed by the buyer and any liabilities to which the property you transferred is subject, such as real estate taxes or a mortgage. H&r block tax software Fair market value. H&r block tax software   Fair market value is the price at which the property would change hands between a buyer and a seller, neither having to buy or sell, and both having reasonable knowledge of all necessary facts.

You must classify your gains and losses as either ordinary or capital gains or losses. H&r block tax software You must do this to figure your net capital gain or loss. H&r block tax software Generally, you will have a capital gain or loss if you dispose of a capital asset. H&r block tax software For the most part, everything you own and use for personal purposes or investment is a capital asset. H&r block tax software Certain property you use in your business is not a capital asset. H&r block tax software A gain or loss from a disposition of this property is an ordinary gain or loss. H&r block tax software However, if you held the property longer than 1 year, you may be able to treat the gain or loss as a capital gain or loss. H&r block tax software These gains and losses are called section 1231 gains and losses. H&r block tax software For more information about ordinary and capital gains and losses, see chapters 2 and 3 in Publication 544. H&r block tax software Is My Capital Gain or Loss Short Term or Long Term? If you have a capital gain or loss, you must determine whether it is long term or short term. H&r block tax software Whether a gain or loss is long or short term depends on how long you own the property before you dispose of it. H&r block tax software The time you own property before disposing of it is called the holding period. H&r block tax software Table 3-2.
