How to file back tax Your tax under Method 2 is $7,673, figured as follows: Tax previously determined for 2012 $ 1,819 Less: Tax as refigured − 1,069 Decrease in 2012 tax $ 750 Regular tax liability for 2013 $8,423 Less: Decrease in 2012 tax − 750 Refigured tax for 2013 $ 7,673 Because you pay less tax under Method 1, you should take a deduction for the repayment in 2013.

How to file back tax Deductions from sales to customers, such as returns and allowances, and similar items. How to file back tax Deductions for legal and other expenses of contesting the repayment.

How to file back tax If you use any other accounting method, you can deduct the repayment or claim a credit for it only for the tax year in which it is a proper deduction under your accounting method. How to file back tax For example, if you use the accrual method, you are entitled to the deduction or credit in the tax year in which the obligation for the repayment accrues. How to file back tax Subscriptions. How to file back tax   Subscriptions to professional, technical, and trade journals that deal with your business field are deductible.

How to file back tax   Business expenses for heat, lights, power, telephone service, and water and sewerage are deductible.
