Revoked? Reinstated? Learn More

Most tax-exempt organizations are required to file an annual return or notice with the Internal Revenue Service. (See Annual Return Filing Exceptions for a list of organizations that are not required to file.) Section 6033(j) of the Internal Revenue Code automatically revokes the exemption of any organization that fails to satisfy its filing requirement for three consecutive years. The automatic revocation of exemption is effective as of the due date of the third required annual filing or notice. Organizations on the Automatic Revocation of Exemption List (Auto-Revocation List) previously recognized as exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code are no longer eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions under Code section 170.

Contributors and grantors can rely on the Exempt Organizations Select Check (Pub 78 data) page to determine organization deductibility and foundation status, even if the organization no longer appears in the Statistics of Income (SOI) Tax Stats - EO BMF. See Revenue Procedure 2011-33.

Publication of an organization’s name on the Auto-Revocation List serves as notice to donors and others that the organization is no longer eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions under section 170 and that donors and others may not rely on an IRS determination letter dated before the effective date of revocation or on a prior listing in either Exempt Organizations Select Check (Pub. 78 data) or the IRS Business Master File extract for purposes of claiming tax-deductible contributions. Because the list is an official IRS record of organizations that lost their exempt status for failing to file for three consecutive years, an organization whose exempt status is reinstated remains on the list. If, however, you think your organization was erroneously listed as revoked, see our frequently asked questions.

Because of system limitations, the name field may capture only the first few words of a long organizational name. For example, if the organization's full name is XXXXX YYYYY ZZZZZ University, Alumni Association Chapter 214, the name field may only display XXXXX YYYYY ZZZZZ University. You can check Exempt Organizations Select Check (Pub. 78 data) to ensure that an organization is still eligible to receive tax deductible contributions. For best search results, be sure to enter the exact legal name of the organization.

Handr block free file 9% Additional Medicare Tax from wages you pay to an employee in excess of $200,000 in a calendar year. Handr block free file Also, self-employed individuals may be required to pay Additional Medicare Tax on self-employment income. Handr block free file See Employment Taxes , and Self-employment tax , later. Handr block free file Introduction You can deduct various federal, state, local, and foreign taxes directly attributable to your trade or business as business expenses. Handr block free file You cannot deduct federal income taxes, estate and gift taxes, or state inheritance, legacy, and succession taxes. Handr block free file Topics - This chapter discusses: When to deduct taxes Real estate taxes Income taxes Employment taxes Other taxes Useful Items - You may want to see: Publication 15 (Circular E), Employer's Tax Guide 334 Tax Guide for Small Business 510 Excise Taxes 538 Accounting Periods and Methods 551 Basis of Assets Form (and Instructions) Sch A (Form 1040) Itemized Deductions Sch SE (Form 1040) Self-Employment Tax 3115 Application for Change in Accounting Method 8959 Additional Medicare Tax See chapter 12 for information about getting publications and forms. Handr block free file When To Deduct Taxes Generally, you can only deduct taxes in the year you pay them. Handr block free file This applies whether you use the cash method or an accrual method of accounting. Handr block free file Under an accrual method, you can deduct a tax before you pay it if you meet the exception for recurring items discussed under Economic Performance in Publication 538. Handr block free file You can also elect to ratably accrue real estate taxes as discussed later under Real Estate Taxes . Handr block free file Limit on accrual of taxes. Handr block free file   A taxing jurisdiction can require the use of a date for accruing taxes that is earlier than the date it originally required. Handr block free file However, if you use an accrual method, and can deduct the tax before you pay it, use the original accrual date for the year of change and all future years to determine when you can deduct the tax. Handr block free file Example. Handr block free file Your state imposes a tax on personal property used in a trade or business conducted in the state. Handr block free file This tax is assessed and becomes a lien as of July 1 (accrual date). Handr block free file In 2013, the state changed the assessment and lien dates from July 1, 2014, to December 31, 2013, for property tax year 2014. Handr block free file Use the original accrual date (July 1, 2014) to determine when you can deduct the tax. Handr block free file You must also use the July 1 accrual date for all future years to determine when you can deduct the tax. Handr block free file Uniform capitalization rules. Handr block free file   Uniform capitalization rules apply to certain taxpayers who produce real property or tangible personal property for use in a trade or business or for sale to customers. Handr block free file They also apply to certain taxpayers who acquire property for resale. Handr block free file Under these rules, you either include certain costs in inventory or capitalize certain expenses related to the property, such as taxes. Handr block free file For more information, see chapter 1. Handr block free file Carrying charges. Handr block free file   Carrying charges include taxes you pay to carry or develop real estate or to carry, transport, or install personal property. Handr block free file You can elect to capitalize carrying charges not subject to the uniform capitalization rules if they are otherwise deductible. Handr block free file For more information, see chapter 7. Handr block free file Refunds of taxes. Handr block free file   If you receive a refund for any taxes you deducted in an earlier year, include the refund in income to the extent the deduction reduced your federal income tax in the earlier year. Handr block free file For more information, see Recovery of amount deducted (tax benefit rule) in chapter 1. Handr block free file    You must include in income any interest you receive on tax refunds. Handr block free file Real Estate Taxes Deductible real estate taxes are any state, local, or foreign taxes on real estate levied for the general public welfare. Handr block free file The taxing authority must base the taxes on the assessed value of the real estate and charge them uniformly against all property under its jurisdiction. Handr block free file Deductible real estate taxes generally do not include taxes charged for local benefits and improvements that increase the value of the property. Handr block free file See Taxes for local benefits , later. Handr block free file If you use an accrual method, you generally cannot accrue real estate taxes until you pay them to the government authority. Handr block free file However, you can elect to ratably accrue the taxes during the year. Handr block free file See Electing to ratably accrue , later. Handr block free file Taxes for local benefits. Handr block free file   Generally, you cannot deduct taxes charged for local benefits and improvements that tend to increase the value of your property. Handr block free file These include assessments for streets, sidewalks, water mains, sewer lines, and public parking facilities. Handr block free file You should increase the basis of your property by the amount of the assessment. Handr block free file   You can deduct taxes for these local benefits only if the taxes are for maintenance, repairs, or interest charges related to those benefits. Handr block free file If part of the tax is for maintenance, repairs, or interest, you must be able to show how much of the tax is for these expenses to claim a deduction for that part of the tax. Handr block free file Example. Handr block free file To improve downtown commercial business, Waterfront City converted a downtown business area street into an enclosed pedestrian mall. Handr block free file The city assessed the full cost of construction, financed with 10-year bonds, against the affected properties. Handr block free file The city is paying the principal and interest with the annual payments made by the property owners. Handr block free file The assessments for construction costs are not deductible as taxes or as business expenses, but are depreciable capital expenses. Handr block free file The part of the payments used to pay the interest charges on the bonds is deductible as taxes. Handr block free file Charges for services. Handr block free file   Water bills, sewerage, and other service charges assessed against your business property are not real estate taxes, but are deductible as business expenses. Handr block free file Purchase or sale of real estate. Handr block free file   If real estate is sold, the real estate taxes must be allocated between the buyer and the seller. Handr block free file   The buyer and seller must allocate the real estate taxes according to the number of days in the real property tax year (the period to which the tax imposed relates) that each owned the property. Handr block free file Treat the seller as paying the taxes up to but not including the date of sale. Handr block free file Treat the buyer as paying the taxes beginning with the date of sale. Handr block free file You can usually find this information on the settlement statement you received at closing. Handr block free file   If you (the seller) use an accrual method and have not elected to ratably accrue real estate taxes, you are considered to have accrued your part of the tax on the date you sell the property. Handr block free file Example. Handr block free file Alberto Verde, a calendar year accrual method taxpayer, owns real estate in Olmo County. Handr block free file He has not elected to ratably accrue property taxes. Handr block free file November 30 of each year is the assessment and lien date for the current real property tax year, which is the calendar year. Handr block free file He sold the property on June 30, 2013. Handr block free file Under his accounting method he would not be able to claim a deduction for the taxes because the sale occurred before November 30. Handr block free file He is treated as having accrued his part of the tax, 181/366  (January 1–June 29), on June 30, and he can deduct it for 2013. Handr block free file Electing to ratably accrue. Handr block free file   If you use an accrual method, you can elect to accrue real estate tax related to a definite period ratably over that period. Handr block free file Example. Handr block free file Juan Sanchez is a calendar year taxpayer who uses an accrual method. Handr block free file His real estate taxes for the real property tax year, July 1, 2013, to June 30, 2014, are $1,200. Handr block free file July 1 is the assessment and lien date. Handr block free file If Juan elects to ratably accrue the taxes, $600 will accrue in 2013 ($1,200 × 6/12, July 1–December 31) and the balance will accrue in 2014. Handr block free file Separate elections. Handr block free file   You can elect to ratably accrue the taxes for each separate trade or business and for nonbusiness activities if you account for them separately. Handr block free file Once you elect to ratably accrue real estate taxes, you must use that method unless you get permission from the IRS to change. Handr block free file See Form 3115 , later. Handr block free file Making the election. Handr block free file   If you elect to ratably accrue the taxes for the first year in which you incur real estate taxes, attach a statement to your income tax return for that year. Handr block free file The statement should show all the following items. Handr block free file The trades or businesses to which the election applies and the accounting method or methods used. Handr block free file The period to which the taxes relate. Handr block free file The computation of the real estate tax deduction for that first year. Handr block free file   Generally, you must file your return by the due date (including extensions). Handr block free file However, if you timely filed your return for the year without electing to ratably accrue, you can still make the election by filing an amended return within 6 months after the due date of the return (excluding extensions). Handr block free file Attach the statement to the amended return and write “Filed pursuant to section 301. Handr block free file 9100-2” on the statement. Handr block free file File the amended return at the same address where you filed the original return. Handr block free file Form 3115. Handr block free file    If you elect to ratably accrue real estate taxes for a year after the first year in which you incur real estate taxes, or if you want to revoke your election to ratably accrue real estate taxes, file Form 3115. Handr block free file For more information, including applicable time frames for filing, see the Instructions for Form 3115. Handr block free file Note. Handr block free file If you are filing an application for a change in accounting method filed after January 9, 2011, for a year of change ending after April 29, 2010, see Revenue Procedure 2011-14, 2011-4 I.

Handr block free file Income Taxes This section discusses federal, state, local, and foreign income taxes. Handr block free file Federal income taxes. Handr block free file   You cannot deduct federal income taxes. Handr block free file State and local income taxes. Handr block free file   A corporation or partnership can deduct state and local income taxes imposed on the corporation or partnership as business expenses. Handr block free file An individual can deduct state and local income taxes only as an itemized deduction on Schedule A (Form 1040). Handr block free file   However, an individual can deduct a state tax on gross income (as distinguished from net income) directly attributable to a trade or business as a business expense. Handr block free file Accrual of contested income taxes. Handr block free file   If you use an accrual method, and you contest a state or local income tax liability, you must accrue and deduct any contested amount in the tax year in which the liability is finally determined. Handr block free file   If additional state or local income taxes for a prior year are assessed in a later year, you can deduct the taxes in the year in which they were originally imposed (the prior year) if the tax liability is not contested. Handr block free file You cannot deduct them in the year in which the liability is finally determined. Handr block free file    The filing of an income tax return is not considered a contest and, in the absence of an overt act of protest, you can deduct the tax in the prior year. Handr block free file Also, you can deduct any additional taxes in the prior year if you do not show some affirmative evidence of denial of the liability. Handr block free file   However, if you consistently deduct additional assessments in the year they are paid or finally determined (including those for which there was no contest), you must continue to do so. Handr block free file You cannot take a deduction in the earlier year unless you receive permission to change your method of accounting. Handr block free file For more information on accounting methods, see When Can I Deduct an Expense in chapter 1. Handr block free file Foreign income taxes. Handr block free file   Generally, you can take either a deduction or a credit for income taxes imposed on you by a foreign country or a U. Handr block free file S. Handr block free file possession. Handr block free file However, an individual cannot take a deduction or credit for foreign income taxes paid on income that is exempt from U. Handr block free file S. Handr block free file tax under the foreign earned income exclusion or the foreign housing exclusion. Handr block free file For information on these exclusions, see Publication 54, Tax Guide for U. Handr block free file S. Handr block free file Citizens and Resident Aliens Abroad. Handr block free file For information on the foreign tax credit, see Publication 514, Foreign Tax Credit for Individuals. Handr block free file Employment Taxes If you have employees, you must withhold various taxes from your employees' pay. Handr block free file Most employers must withhold their employees' share of social security, Medicare taxes, and Additional Medicare Tax (if applicable) along with state and federal income taxes. Handr block free file You may also need to pay certain employment taxes from your own funds. Handr block free file These include your share of social security and Medicare taxes as an employer, along with unemployment taxes. Handr block free file Note. Handr block free file Additional Medicare Tax is only imposed on the employee. Handr block free file There is no employer share of Additional Medicare Tax. Handr block free file Your deduction for wages paid is not reduced by the social security and Medicare taxes, Additional Medicare Tax, and income taxes you withhold from your employees. Handr block free file You can deduct the employment taxes you must pay from your own funds as taxes. Handr block free file Example. Handr block free file You pay your employee $18,000 a year. Handr block free file However, after you withhold various taxes, your employee receives $14,500. Handr block free file You also pay an additional $1,500 in employment taxes. Handr block free file You should deduct the full $18,000 as wages. Handr block free file You can deduct the $1,500 you pay from your own funds as taxes. Handr block free file For more information on employment taxes, see Publication 15 (Circular E). Handr block free file Unemployment fund taxes. Handr block free file   As an employer, you may have to make payments to a state unemployment compensation fund or to a state disability benefit fund. Handr block free file Deduct these payments as taxes. Handr block free file Other Taxes The following are other taxes you can deduct if you incur them in the ordinary course of your trade or business. Handr block free file Excise taxes. Handr block free file   Generally, you can deduct as a business expense all excise taxes that are ordinary and necessary expenses of carrying on your trade or business. Handr block free file However, see Fuel taxes , later. Handr block free file   For more information on excise taxes, see Publication 510. Handr block free file Franchise taxes. Handr block free file   You can deduct corporate franchise taxes as a business expense. Handr block free file Fuel taxes. Handr block free file   Generally, taxes on gasoline, diesel fuel, and other motor fuels that you use in your business are included as part of the cost of the fuel. Handr block free file Do not deduct these taxes as a separate item. Handr block free file   You may be entitled to a credit or refund for federal excise tax you paid on fuels used for certain purposes. Handr block free file For more information, see Publication 510. Handr block free file Occupational taxes. Handr block free file   You can deduct as a business expense an occupational tax charged at a flat rate by a locality for the privilege of working or conducting a business in the locality. Handr block free file Personal property tax. Handr block free file   You can deduct any tax imposed by a state or local government on personal property used in your trade or business. Handr block free file Sales tax. Handr block free file   Treat any sales tax you pay on a service or on the purchase or use of property as part of the cost of the service or property. Handr block free file If the service or the cost or use of the property is a deductible business expense, you can deduct the tax as part of that service or cost. Handr block free file If the property is merchandise bought for resale, the sales tax is part of the cost of the merchandise. Handr block free file If the property is depreciable, add the sales tax to the basis for depreciation. Handr block free file For more information on basis, see Publication 551. Handr block free file    Do not deduct state and local sales taxes imposed on the buyer that you must collect and pay over to the state or local government. Handr block free file Also, do not include these taxes in gross receipts or sales. Handr block free file Self-employment tax. Handr block free file   You can deduct part of your self-employment tax as a business expense in figuring your adjusted gross income. Handr block free file This deduction only affects your income tax. Handr block free file It does not affect your net earnings from self-employment or your self-employment tax. Handr block free file   To deduct the tax, enter on Form 1040, line 27, the amount shown on the Deduction for one-half of self-employment tax line of Schedule SE (Form 1040). Handr block free file   For more information on self-employment tax, see Publication 334. Handr block free file Additional Medicare Tax. Handr block free file   Beginning in 2013, you may be required to pay Additional Medicare Tax on self-employment income. Handr block free file See Form 8959 and the Instructions for Form 8959 for more information on the Additional Medicare Tax. Handr block free file Prev  Up  Next   Home   More Online Publications
