Irs form 1040es 6. Irs form 1040es   How To Figure Cost of Goods Sold Table of Contents Introduction Figuring Cost of Goods Sold on Schedule C, Lines 35 Through 42Line 35 Inventory at Beginning of Year Line 36 Purchases Less Cost of Items Withdrawn for Personal Use Line 37 Cost of Labor Line 38 Materials and Supplies Line 39 Other Costs Line 40 Add Lines 35 through 39 Line 41 Inventory at End of Year Line 42 Cost of Goods Sold Introduction If you make or buy goods to sell, you can deduct the cost of goods sold from your gross receipts on Schedule C. Irs form 1040es However, to determine these costs, you must value your inventory at the beginning and end of each tax year. Irs form 1040es This chapter applies to you if you are a manufacturer, wholesaler, or retailer or if you are engaged in any business that makes, buys, or sells goods to produce income. Irs form 1040es This chapter does not apply to a personal service business, such as the business of a doctor, lawyer, carpenter, or painter. Irs form 1040es However, if you work in a personal service business and also sell or charge for the materials and supplies normally used in your business, this chapter applies to you. Irs form 1040es If you must account for an inventory in your business, you must generally use an accrual method of accounting for your purchases and sales. Irs form 1040es For more information, see chapter 2. Irs form 1040es Figuring Cost of Goods Sold on Schedule C, Lines 35 Through 42 Figure your cost of goods sold by filling out lines 35 through 42 of Schedule C. Irs form 1040es These lines are reproduced below and are explained in the discussion that follows. Irs form 1040es 35 Inventory at beginning of year. Irs form 1040es If different from last year's closing inventory, attach explanation   36 Purchases less cost of items withdrawn for personal use   37 Cost of labor. Irs form 1040es Do not include any amounts paid to yourself   38 Materials and supplies   39 Other costs   40 Add lines 35 through 39   41 Inventory at end of year   42 Cost of goods sold. Irs form 1040es Subtract line 41 from line 40. Irs form 1040es  Enter the result here and on line 4   Line 35 Inventory at Beginning of Year If you are a merchant, beginning inventory is the cost of merchandise on hand at the beginning of the year that you will sell to customers. Irs form 1040es If you are a manufacturer or producer, it includes the total cost of raw materials, work in process, finished goods, and materials and supplies used in manufacturing the goods (see Inventories in chapter 2). Irs form 1040es Opening inventory usually will be identical to the closing inventory of the year before. Irs form 1040es You must explain any difference in a schedule attached to your return. Irs form 1040es Donation of inventory. Irs form 1040es   If you contribute inventory (property that you sell in the course of your business), the amount you can claim as a contribution deduction is the smaller of its fair market value on the day you contributed it or its basis. Irs form 1040es The basis of donated inventory is any cost incurred for the inventory in an earlier year that you would otherwise include in your opening inventory for the year of the contribution. Irs form 1040es You must remove the amount of your contribution deduction from your opening inventory. Irs form 1040es It is not part of the cost of goods sold. Irs form 1040es   If the cost of donated inventory is not included in your opening inventory, the inventory's basis is zero and you cannot claim a charitable contribution deduction. Irs form 1040es Treat the inventory's cost as you would ordinarily treat it under your method of accounting. Irs form 1040es For example, include the purchase price of inventory bought and donated in the same year in the cost of goods sold for that year. Irs form 1040es   A special rule may apply to certain donations of food inventory. Irs form 1040es See Publication 526, Charitable Contributions. Irs form 1040es Example 1. Irs form 1040es You are a calendar year taxpayer who uses an accrual method of accounting. Irs form 1040es In 2013, you contributed property from inventory to a church. Irs form 1040es It had a fair market value of $600. Irs form 1040es The closing inventory at the end of 2012 properly included $400 of costs due to the acquisition of the property, and in 2012, you properly deducted $50 of administrative and other expenses attributable to the property as business expenses. Irs form 1040es The charitable contribution allowed for 2013 is $400 ($600 − $200). Irs form 1040es The $200 is the amount that would be ordinary income if you had sold the contributed inventory at fair market value on the date of the gift. Irs form 1040es The cost of goods sold you use in determining gross income for 2013 must not include the $400. Irs form 1040es You remove that amount from opening inventory for 2013. Irs form 1040es Example 2. Irs form 1040es If, in Example 1, you acquired the contributed property in 2013 at a cost of $400, you would include the $400 cost of the property in figuring the cost of goods sold for 2013 and deduct the $50 of administrative and other expenses attributable to the property for that year. Irs form 1040es You would not be allowed any charitable contribution deduction for the contributed property. Irs form 1040es Line 36 Purchases Less Cost of Items Withdrawn for Personal Use If you are a merchant, use the cost of all merchandise you bought for sale. Irs form 1040es If you are a manufacturer or producer, this includes the cost of all raw materials or parts purchased for manufacture into a finished product. Irs form 1040es Trade discounts. Irs form 1040es   The differences between the stated prices of articles and the actual prices you pay for them are called trade discounts. Irs form 1040es You must use the prices you pay (not the stated prices) in figuring your cost of purchases. Irs form 1040es Do not show the discount amount separately as an item in gross income. Irs form 1040es   An automobile dealer must record the cost of a car in inventory reduced by any manufacturer's rebate that represents a trade discount. Irs form 1040es Cash discounts. Irs form 1040es   Cash discounts are amounts your suppliers let you deduct from your purchase invoices for prompt payments. Irs form 1040es There are two methods of accounting for cash discounts. Irs form 1040es You can either credit them to a separate discount account or deduct them from total purchases for the year. Irs form 1040es Whichever method you use, you must be consistent. Irs form 1040es If you want to change your method of figuring inventory cost, you must file Form 3115, Application for Change in Accounting Method. Irs form 1040es For more information, see Change in Accounting Method in chapter 2. Irs form 1040es   If you credit cash discounts to a separate account, you must include this credit balance in your business income at the end of the tax year. Irs form 1040es If you use this method, do not reduce your cost of goods sold by the cash discounts. Irs form 1040es Purchase returns and allowances. Irs form 1040es   You must deduct all returns and allowances from your total purchases during the year. Irs form 1040es Merchandise withdrawn from sale. Irs form 1040es   If you withdraw merchandise for your personal or family use, you must exclude this cost from the total amount of merchandise you bought for sale. Irs form 1040es Do this by crediting the purchases or sales account with the cost of merchandise you withdraw for personal use. Irs form 1040es You must also charge the amount to your drawing account. Irs form 1040es   A drawing account is a separate account you should keep to record the business income you withdraw to pay for personal and family expenses. Irs form 1040es As stated above, you also use it to record withdrawals of merchandise for personal or family use. Irs form 1040es This account is also known as a “withdrawals account” or “personal account. Irs form 1040es ” Line 37 Cost of Labor Labor costs are usually an element of cost of goods sold only in a manufacturing or mining business. Irs form 1040es Small merchandisers (wholesalers, retailers, etc. Irs form 1040es ) usually do not have labor costs that can properly be charged to cost of goods sold. Irs form 1040es In a manufacturing business, labor costs properly allocable to the cost of goods sold include both the direct and indirect labor used in fabricating the raw material into a finished, saleable product. Irs form 1040es Direct labor. Irs form 1040es   Direct labor costs are the wages you pay to those employees who spend all their time working directly on the product being manufactured. Irs form 1040es They also include a part of the wages you pay to employees who work directly on the product part time if you can determine that part of their wages. Irs form 1040es Indirect labor. Irs form 1040es   Indirect labor costs are the wages you pay to employees who perform a general factory function that does not have any immediate or direct connection with making the saleable product, but that is a necessary part of the manufacturing process. Irs form 1040es Other labor. Irs form 1040es   Other labor costs not properly chargeable to the cost of goods sold can be deducted as selling or administrative expenses. Irs form 1040es Generally, the only kinds of labor costs properly chargeable to your cost of goods sold are the direct or indirect labor costs and certain other costs treated as overhead expenses properly charged to the manufacturing process, as discussed later under Line 39 Other Costs. Irs form 1040es Line 38 Materials and Supplies Materials and supplies, such as hardware and chemicals, used in manufacturing goods are charged to cost of goods sold. Irs form 1040es Those that are not used in the manufacturing process are treated as deferred charges. Irs form 1040es You deduct them as a business expense when you use them. Irs form 1040es Business expenses are discussed in chapter 8. Irs form 1040es Line 39 Other Costs Examples of other costs incurred in a manufacturing or mining process that you charge to your cost of goods sold are as follows. Irs form 1040es Containers. Irs form 1040es   Containers and packages that are an integral part of the product manufactured are a part of your cost of goods sold. Irs form 1040es If they are not an integral part of the manufactured product, their costs are shipping or selling expenses. Irs form 1040es Freight-in. Irs form 1040es   Freight-in, express-in, and cartage-in on raw materials, supplies you use in production, and merchandise you purchase for sale are all part of cost of goods sold. Irs form 1040es Overhead expenses. Irs form 1040es   Overhead expenses include expenses such as rent, heat, light, power, insurance, depreciation, taxes, maintenance, labor, and supervision. Irs form 1040es The overhead expenses you have as direct and necessary expenses of the manufacturing operation are included in your cost of goods sold. Irs form 1040es Line 40 Add Lines 35 through 39 The total of lines 35 through 39 equals the cost of the goods available for sale during the year. Irs form 1040es Line 41 Inventory at End of Year Subtract the value of your closing inventory (including, as appropriate, the allocable parts of the cost of raw materials and supplies, direct labor, and overhead expenses) from line 40. Irs form 1040es Inventory at the end of the year is also known as closing or ending inventory. Irs form 1040es Your ending inventory will usually become the beginning inventory of your next tax year. Irs form 1040es Line 42 Cost of Goods Sold When you subtract your closing inventory (inventory at the end of the year) from the cost of goods available for sale, the remainder is your cost of goods sold during the tax year.

Irs form 1040es However, you may not deduct a casualty or theft loss that is covered by insurance unless you filed a timely insurance claim for reimbursement. Irs form 1040es Any reimbursement you receive will reduce the loss. Irs form 1040es If you did not file an insurance claim, you may deduct only the part of the loss that was not covered by insurance. Irs form 1040es Amount of loss. Irs form 1040es   You figure the amount of your loss using the following steps. Irs form 1040es Determine your cost or other basis in the property before the casualty or theft.

Irs form 1040es (The decrease in FMV is the difference between the property's value immediately before and immediately after the casualty or theft. Irs form 1040es ) From the smaller of the amounts you determined in (1) and (2), subtract any insurance or other reimbursement you received or expect to receive.

Irs form 1040es Fair market value. Irs form 1040es   FMV is the price for which you could sell your property to a willing buyer, when neither of you has to sell or buy and both of you know all the relevant facts. Irs form 1040es When filling out Schedules 1 through 20, you need to know the FMV of the property immediately before and immediately after the disaster, casualty, or theft. Irs form 1040es Separate computations. Irs form 1040es   Generally, if a single casualty or theft involves more than one item of property, you must figure the loss on each item separately. Irs form 1040es Then combine the losses to determine the total loss from that casualty or theft. Irs form 1040es Exception for personal-use real property. Irs form 1040es   In figuring a casualty loss on personal-use real property, the entire property (including any improvements, such as buildings, trees, and shrubs) is treated as one item. Irs form 1040es Figure the loss using the smaller of the following. Irs form 1040es The decrease in FMV of the entire property. Irs form 1040es The adjusted basis of the entire property. Irs form 1040es Deduction limits. Irs form 1040es   After you have figured the amount of your loss, as discussed earlier, you must figure how much of the loss you can deduct. Irs form 1040es You do this on Form 4684, section A. Irs form 1040es If the loss was to property for your personal use or your family's, there are two limits on the amount you can deduct for your casualty or theft loss. Irs form 1040es You must reduce each casualty or theft loss by $100 ($100 rule). Irs form 1040es You must further reduce the total of all your losses by 10% of your adjusted gross income (10% rule). Irs form 1040es More information. Irs form 1040es   For more information about the deduction limits, see Publication 547. Irs form 1040es When your loss is deductible.
