Order irs tax forms 2012 Definitions The following definitions are used throughout this publication. Order irs tax forms 2012 Kansas Disaster Area The Kansas disaster area covers the Kansas counties of Barton, Clay, Cloud, Comanche, Dickinson, Edwards, Ellsworth, Kiowa, Leavenworth, Lyon, McPherson, Osage, Osborne, Ottawa, Phillips, Pottawatomie, Pratt, Reno, Rice, Riley, Saline, Shawnee, Smith, and Stafford. Order irs tax forms 2012 Storms and Tornadoes The term “storms and tornadoes” as used in this publication, refers to the storms and tornadoes that began on May 4, 2007, and affected the Kansas disaster area (defined above). Order irs tax forms 2012 Casualty and Theft Losses The following paragraphs explain changes to casualty and theft losses that occurred in the Kansas disaster area. Order irs tax forms 2012 Limits on personal casualty or theft losses in the Kansas disaster area. Order irs tax forms 2012   Losses of personal use property that arose in the Kansas disaster area after May 3, 2007, are not subject to the $100 or 10% of adjusted gross income limits. Order irs tax forms 2012 Qualifying losses include losses from casualties and thefts that arose in the disaster area and that were attributable to the storms and tornadoes. Order irs tax forms 2012 When to deduct the loss. Order irs tax forms 2012   Casualty and theft losses are generally deductible only in the year the casualty occurred or the theft was discovered. Order irs tax forms 2012 However, the Kansas disaster area is a Presidentially declared disaster. Order irs tax forms 2012 Therefore, you could have elected to deduct losses from these storms and tornadoes on your tax return for the previous year. Order irs tax forms 2012 The deadline for making this election has expired. Order irs tax forms 2012   The following special instructions explain how to complete your forms if you deduct the loss in 2007 or elected to deduct the loss in 2006. Order irs tax forms 2012 Special instructions for individuals who file Form 4684 to claim a Kansas disaster area casualty or theft loss for 2007 or are amending their 2006 return. Order irs tax forms 2012   Individuals filing or amending their 2007 tax return or amending their 2006 tax return for casualty or theft losses that were attributable to the storms and tornadoes should enter “Kansas Disaster Area” at the top of Form 1040 or 1040X. Order irs tax forms 2012 They must also complete and attach the 2006 version of Form 4684 for either year and enter “Kansas Disaster Area” on the top and on the dotted line next to line 11 and enter -0- on line 11. Order irs tax forms 2012 Individuals filing or amending their 2007 tax return should cross out “2006” and enter “2007” at the top of Form 4684. Order irs tax forms 2012 They must also enter the amount from line 21 of that form on line 20 of Schedule A (Form 1040). Order irs tax forms 2012 Replacement Period for Nonrecognition of Gain Generally, an involuntary conversion occurs when property is damaged, destroyed, stolen, seized, requisitioned, or condemned, and you receive other property or money in payment, such as insurance or a condemnation award. Order irs tax forms 2012 Generally, you do not have to report a gain (if any) if you replace the property within 2 years (4 years for a main home in a Presidentially declared disaster area). Order irs tax forms 2012 However, for property that was involuntarily converted after May 3, 2007, as a result of the storms and tornadoes, a 5-year replacement period applies if substantially all of the use of the replacement property is in the Kansas disaster area. Order irs tax forms 2012 For more information, see the Instructions for Form 4684. Order irs tax forms 2012 Net Operating Losses Qualified recovery assistance loss. Order irs tax forms 2012   Generally, you can carry a net operating loss (NOL) back to the 2 tax years before the NOL year. Order irs tax forms 2012 However, the portion of an NOL that is a qualified recovery assistance loss can be carried back to the 5 tax years before the NOL year. Order irs tax forms 2012 In addition, the 90% limit on the alternative tax NOL deduction (ATNOLD) does not apply to such portion of the ATNOLD. Order irs tax forms 2012   A qualified recovery assistance loss is the smaller of: The excess of the NOL for the year over the specified liability loss for the year to which a 10-year carryback applies, or The total of the following deductions (to the extent they are taken into account in computing the NOL for the tax year): Qualified recovery assistance casualty loss (as defined below), Moving expenses paid or incurred after May 3, 2007, and before January 1, 2010, for the employment of an individual whose main home was in the Kansas disaster area before May 4, 2007, who was unable to remain in that home because of the storms and tornadoes, and whose main job location (after the move) is in the Kansas disaster area, Temporary housing expenses paid or incurred after May 3, 2007, and before January 1, 2010, to house employees of the taxpayer whose main job location is in the Kansas disaster area, Depreciation or amortization allowable for any qualified recovery assistance property (even if you elected not to claim the special recovery assistance depreciation allowance for such property) for the year placed in service, and Repair expenses (including expenses for the removal of debris) paid or incurred after May 3, 2007, and before January 1, 2010, for any damage from the storms and tornadoes to property located in the Kansas disaster area. Order irs tax forms 2012 Qualified recovery assistance casualty loss. Order irs tax forms 2012   A qualified recovery assistance casualty loss is any deductible section 1231 loss of property located in the Kansas disaster area if the loss was caused by the storms and tornadoes. Order irs tax forms 2012 For this purpose, the amount of the loss is reduced by any recognized gain from an involuntary conversion caused by the storms and tornadoes of property located in the Kansas disaster area. Order irs tax forms 2012 Any such loss taken into account in figuring your qualified recovery assistance loss is not eligible for the election to be treated as having occurred in the previous tax year. Order irs tax forms 2012 Amended return. Order irs tax forms 2012   If you have already filed your 2007 tax return and then carried your NOL back 2 years, you may file an amended return to carry back for 5 years your NOL attributable to a qualified recovery assistance loss. Order irs tax forms 2012 More information. Order irs tax forms 2012    For more information on NOLs, see Publication 536. Order irs tax forms 2012 IRAs and Other Retirement Plans New rules provide for tax-favored withdrawals, repayments, and loans from certain retirement plans for individuals who suffered economic losses as a result of the storms and tornadoes. Order irs tax forms 2012 Definitions Qualified recovery assistance distribution. Order irs tax forms 2012   Except as provided below, a qualified recovery assistance distribution is any distribution you received and designated as such from an eligible retirement plan if all of the following apply. Order irs tax forms 2012 The distribution was made after May 3, 2007, and before January 1, 2009. Order irs tax forms 2012 Your main home was located in the Kansas disaster area on May 4, 2007. Order irs tax forms 2012 You sustained an economic loss because of the storms and tornadoes. Order irs tax forms 2012 Examples of an economic loss include, but are not limited to: Loss, damage to, or destruction of real or personal property from fire, flooding, looting, vandalism, theft, wind, or other cause; Loss related to displacement from your home; or Loss of livelihood due to temporary or permanent layoffs. Order irs tax forms 2012   If (1) through (3) above apply, you can generally designate any distribution (including periodic payments and required minimum distributions) from an eligible retirement plan as a qualified recovery assistance distribution, regardless of whether the distribution was made on account of the storms and tornadoes. Order irs tax forms 2012 Qualified recovery assistance distributions are permitted without regard to your need or the actual amount of your economic loss. Order irs tax forms 2012   The total of your qualified recovery assistance distributions from all plans is limited to $100,000. Order irs tax forms 2012 If you have distributions in excess of $100,000 from more than one type of plan, such as a 401(k) plan and an IRA, you may allocate the $100,000 limit among the plans any way you choose. Order irs tax forms 2012   A reduction or offset after May 3, 2007, of your account balance in an eligible retirement plan in order to repay a loan can also be designated as a qualified recovery assistance distribution. Order irs tax forms 2012 Eligible retirement plan. Order irs tax forms 2012   An eligible retirement plan can be any of the following. Order irs tax forms 2012 A qualified pension, profit-sharing, or stock bonus plan (including a 401(k) plan). Order irs tax forms 2012 A qualified annuity plan. Order irs tax forms 2012 A tax-sheltered annuity contract. Order irs tax forms 2012 A governmental section 457 deferred compensation plan. Order irs tax forms 2012 A traditional, SEP, SIMPLE, or Roth IRA. Order irs tax forms 2012 Main home. Order irs tax forms 2012   Generally, your main home is the home where you live most of the time. Order irs tax forms 2012 A temporary absence due to special circumstances, such as illness, education, business, military service, evacuation, or vacation, will not change your main home. Order irs tax forms 2012 Taxation of Qualified Recovery Assistance Distributions Qualified recovery assistance distributions are included in income in equal amounts over three years. Order irs tax forms 2012 However, if you elect, you can include the entire distribution in your income in the year it was received. Order irs tax forms 2012 Qualified recovery assistance distributions are not subject to the additional 10% tax (or the additional 25% tax for certain distributions from SIMPLE IRAs) on early distributions from qualified retirement plans (including IRAs). Order irs tax forms 2012 However, any distributions you receive in excess of the $100,000 qualified recovery assistance distribution limit may be subject to the additional tax on early distributions. Order irs tax forms 2012 For more information, see How To Report Qualified Recovery Assistance Distributions on page 4. Order irs tax forms 2012 Repayment of Qualified Recovery Assistance Distributions If you choose, you generally can repay any portion of a qualified recovery assistance distribution that is eligible for tax-free rollover treatment to an eligible retirement plan. Order irs tax forms 2012 Also, you can repay a qualified recovery assistance distribution made on account of a hardship from a retirement plan. Order irs tax forms 2012 However, see Exceptions below for qualified recovery assistance distributions you cannot repay.
