The State Income Tax Questions

State income tax questions 3. State income tax questions   Gifts Table of Contents If you give gifts in the course of your trade or business, you can deduct all or part of the cost. State income tax questions This chapter explains the limits and rules for deducting the costs of gifts. State income tax questions $25 limit. State income tax questions   You can deduct no more than $25 for business gifts you give directly or indirectly to each person during your tax year. State income tax questions A gift to a company that is intended for the eventual personal use or benefit of a particular person or a limited class of people will be considered an indirect gift to that particular person or to the individuals within that class of people who receive the gift. State income tax questions   If you give a gift to a member of a customer's family, the gift is generally considered to be an indirect gift to the customer. State income tax questions This rule does not apply if you have a bona fide, independent business connection with that family member and the gift is not intended for the customer's eventual use. State income tax questions   If you and your spouse both give gifts, both of you are treated as one taxpayer. State income tax questions It does not matter whether you have separate businesses, are separately employed, or whether each of you has an independent connection with the recipient. State income tax questions If a partnership gives gifts, the partnership and the partners are treated as one taxpayer. State income tax questions Example. State income tax questions Bob Jones sells products to Local Company. State income tax questions He and his wife, Jan, gave Local Company three gourmet gift baskets to thank them for their business. State income tax questions They paid $80 for each gift basket, or $240 total. State income tax questions Three of Local Company's executives took the gift baskets home for their families' use. State income tax questions Bob and Jan have no independent business relationship with any of the executives' other family members. State income tax questions They can deduct a total of $75 ($25 limit × 3) for the gift baskets. State income tax questions Incidental costs. State income tax questions   Incidental costs, such as engraving on jewelry, or packaging, insuring, and mailing, are generally not included in determining the cost of a gift for purposes of the $25 limit. State income tax questions   A cost is incidental only if it does not add substantial value to the gift. State income tax questions For example, the cost of gift wrapping is an incidental cost. State income tax questions However, the purchase of an ornamental basket for packaging fruit is not an incidental cost if the value of the basket is substantial compared to the value of the fruit. State income tax questions Exceptions. State income tax questions   The following items are not considered gifts for purposes of the $25 limit. State income tax questions An item that costs $4 or less and: Has your name clearly and permanently imprinted on the gift, and Is one of a number of identical items you widely distribute. State income tax questions Examples include pens, desk sets, and plastic bags and cases. State income tax questions Signs, display racks, or other promotional material to be used on the business premises of the recipient. State income tax questions    Figure B.

State income tax questions   Any item that might be considered either a gift or entertainment generally will be considered entertainment. State income tax questions However, if you give a customer packaged food or beverages you intend the customer to use at a later date, treat it as a gift. State income tax questions    If you give a customer tickets to a theater performance or sporting event and you do not go with the customer to the performance or event, you have a choice. State income tax questions You can treat the cost of the tickets as either a gift expense or an entertainment expense, whichever is to your advantage. State income tax questions   You can change your treatment of the tickets at a later date by filing an amended return. State income tax questions Generally, an amended return must be filed within 3 years from the date the original return was filed or within 2 years from the time the tax was paid, whichever is later. State income tax questions    If you go with the customer to the event, you must treat the cost of the tickets as an entertainment expense.
