Prior taxes How Do I Figure a Gain or Loss?Is My Gain or Loss Ordinary or Capital? Is My Capital Gain or Loss Short Term or Long Term? Where Do I Report Gains and Losses? Introduction If you dispose of business property, you may have a gain or loss that you report on Form 1040. Prior taxes However, in some cases you may have a gain that is not taxable or a loss that is not deductible. Prior taxes This chapter discusses whether you have a disposition, how to figure the gain or loss, and where to report the gain or loss. Prior taxes Useful Items - You may want to see: Publication 544 Sales and Other Dispositions of Assets Form (and Instructions) 4797 Sales of Business Property Sch D (Form 1040) Capital Gains and Losses See chapter 12 for information about getting publications and forms. Prior taxes What Is a Disposition of Property? A disposition of property includes the following transactions. Prior taxes You sell property for cash or other property. Prior taxes You exchange property for other property. Prior taxes You receive money as a tenant for the cancellation of a lease. Prior taxes You receive money for granting the exclusive use of a copyright throughout its life in a particular medium. Prior taxes You transfer property to satisfy a debt. Prior taxes You abandon property. Prior taxes Your bank or other financial institution forecloses on your mortgage or repossesses your property. Prior taxes Your property is damaged, destroyed, or stolen, and you receive property or money in payment. Prior taxes Your property is condemned, or disposed of under the threat of condemnation, and you receive property or money in payment. Prior taxes For details about damaged, destroyed, or stolen property, see Publication 547, Casualties, Disasters, and Thefts. Prior taxes For details about other dispositions, see chapter 1 in Publication 544. Prior taxes Nontaxable exchanges. Prior taxes   Certain exchanges of property are not taxable. Prior taxes This means any gain from the exchange is not recognized and you cannot deduct any loss. Prior taxes Your gain or loss will not be recognized until you sell or otherwise dispose of the property you receive. Prior taxes Like-kind exchanges. Prior taxes   A like-kind exchange is the exchange of property for the same kind of property. Prior taxes It is the most common type of nontaxable exchange. Prior taxes To be a like-kind exchange, the property traded and the property received must be both of the following. Prior taxes Business or investment property. Prior taxes Like property. Prior taxes   Report the exchange of like-kind property on Form 8824, Like-Kind Exchanges. Prior taxes For more information about like-kind exchanges, see chapter 1 in Publication 544. Prior taxes Installment sales. Prior taxes   An installment sale is a sale of property where you receive at least one payment after the tax year of the sale. Prior taxes 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. Prior taxes   For more information about installment sales, see Publication 537, Installment Sales. Prior taxes Sale of a business. Prior taxes   The sale of a business usually is not a sale of one asset. Prior taxes Instead, all the assets of the business are sold. Prior taxes Generally, when this occurs, each asset is treated as being sold separately for determining the treatment of gain or loss. Prior taxes   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. Prior taxes Use Form 8594, Asset Acquisition Statement Under Section 1060, to provide this information. Prior taxes The buyer and seller should each attach Form 8594 to their federal income tax return for the year in which the sale occurred. Prior taxes   For more information about the sale of a business, see chapter 2 of Publication 544. Prior taxes How Do I Figure a Gain or Loss? Table 3-1.

Prior taxes Adjusted basis is more than the amount realized Loss. Prior taxes Amount realized is more than the adjusted basis Gain. Prior taxes Basis, adjusted basis, amount realized, fair market value, and amount recognized are defined next. Prior taxes You need to know these definitions to figure your gain or loss. Prior taxes Basis. Prior taxes   The cost or purchase price of property is usually its basis for figuring the gain or loss from its sale or other disposition. Prior taxes 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. Prior taxes For more information about basis, see Publication 551, Basis of Assets. Prior taxes Adjusted basis. Prior taxes   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. Prior taxes 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. Prior taxes Amount realized. Prior taxes   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. Prior taxes 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. Prior taxes Fair market value. Prior taxes   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. Prior taxes Amount recognized. Prior taxes   Your gain or loss realized from a disposition of property is usually a recognized gain or loss for tax purposes. Prior taxes Recognized gains must be included in gross income. Prior taxes Recognized losses are deductible from gross income. Prior taxes However, a gain or loss realized from certain exchanges of property is not recognized. Prior taxes See  Nontaxable exchanges, earlier. Prior taxes Also, you cannot deduct a loss from the disposition of property held for personal use. Prior taxes Is My Gain or Loss Ordinary or Capital? You must classify your gains and losses as either ordinary or capital gains or losses. Prior taxes You must do this to figure your net capital gain or loss. Prior taxes Generally, you will have a capital gain or loss if you dispose of a capital asset. Prior taxes For the most part, everything you own and use for personal purposes or investment is a capital asset. Prior taxes Certain property you use in your business is not a capital asset. Prior taxes A gain or loss from a disposition of this property is an ordinary gain or loss. Prior taxes 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. Prior taxes These gains and losses are called section 1231 gains and losses. Prior taxes For more information about ordinary and capital gains and losses, see chapters 2 and 3 in Publication 544. Prior taxes 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. Prior taxes Whether a gain or loss is long or short term depends on how long you own the property before you dispose of it. Prior taxes The time you own property before disposing of it is called the holding period. Prior taxes Table 3-2. Prior taxes Do I Have a Short-Term or Long-Term Gain or Loss?
