Tax 2011   You do not have to file Form 8949 or Schedule D (Form 1040) if you have no capital losses and your only capital gains are capital gain distributions from Form(s) 1099-DIV, box 2a (or substitute statements). Tax 2011 (If any Form(s) 1099-DIV (or substitute statements) you receive have an amount in box 2b (unrecaptured section 1250 gain), box 2c (section 1202 gain), or box 2d (collectibles (28%) gain), you do not qualify for this exception. Tax 2011 ) If you qualify for this exception, report your capital gain distributions directly on line 13 of Form 1040 (and check the box on line 13). Tax 2011 Also use the Qualified Dividends and Capital Gain Tax Worksheet in the Form 1040 instructions to figure your tax. Tax 2011 You can report your capital gain distributions on line 10 of Form 1040A, instead of on Form 1040, if none of the Forms 1099-DIV (or substitute statements) you received have an amount in box 2b, 2c, or 2d, and you do not have to file Form 1040. Tax 2011 Exception 2. Tax 2011   You must file Schedule D (Form 1040), but generally do not have to file Form 8949, if Exception 1 does not apply and your only capital gains and losses are: Capital gain distributions; A capital loss carryover; A gain from Form 2439 or 6252 or Part I of Form 4797; A gain or loss from Form 4684, 6781, or 8824; A gain or loss from a partnership, S corporation, estate, or trust; or Gains and losses from transactions for which you received a Form 1099-B (or substitute statement) that shows the basis was reported to the IRS and for which you do not need to make any adjustments in column (g) of Form 8949 or enter any codes in column (f) of Form 8949. Tax 2011 Installment sales. Tax 2011   You cannot use the installment method to report a gain from the sale of stock or securities traded on an established securities market. Tax 2011 You must report the entire gain in the year of sale (the year in which the trade date occurs). Tax 2011 Passive activity gains and losses. Tax 2011    If you have gains or losses from a passive activity, you may also have to report them on Form 8582. Tax 2011 In some cases, the loss may be limited under the passive activity rules. Tax 2011 Refer to Form 8582 and its instructions for more information about reporting capital gains and losses from a passive activity. Tax 2011 Form 1099-B transactions. Tax 2011   If you sold property, such as stocks, bonds, or certain commodities, through a broker, you should receive Form 1099-B or substitute statement from the broker. Tax 2011 Use the Form 1099-B or the substitute statement to complete Form 8949. Tax 2011 If you sold a covered security in 2013, your broker should send you a Form 1099-B (or substitute statement) that shows your basis. Tax 2011 This will help you complete Form 8949. Tax 2011 Generally, a covered security is a security you acquired after 2010. Tax 2011   Report the gross proceeds shown in box 2a of Form 1099-B as the sales price in column (d) of either Part I or Part II of Form 8949, whichever applies. Tax 2011 However, if the broker advises you, in box 2a of Form 1099-B, that gross proceeds (sales price) less commissions and option premiums were reported to the IRS, enter that net sales price in column (d) of either Part I or Part II of Form 8949, whichever applies. Tax 2011    Include in column (g) any expense of sale, such as broker's fees, commissions, state and local transfer taxes, and option premiums, unless you reported the net sales price in column (d). Tax 2011 If you include an expense of sale in column (g), enter “E” in column (f). Tax 2011 Form 1099-CAP transactions. Tax 2011   If a corporation in which you own stock has had a change in control or a substantial change in capital structure, you should receive Form 1099-CAP or a substitute statement from the corporation. Tax 2011 Use the Form 1099-CAP or substitute statement to fill in Form 8949. Tax 2011 If your computations show that you would have a loss because of the change, do not enter any amounts on Form 8949 or Schedule D (Form 1040). Tax 2011 You cannot claim a loss on Schedule D (Form 1040) as a result of this transaction. Tax 2011   Report the aggregate amount received shown in box 2 of Form 1099-CAP as the sales price in column (d) of either Part I or Part II of Form 8949, whichever applies. Tax 2011 Form 1099-S transactions. Tax 2011   If you sold or traded reportable real estate, you generally should receive from the real estate reporting person a Form 1099-S showing the gross proceeds. Tax 2011    “Reportable real estate” is defined as any present or future ownership interest in any of the following: Improved or unimproved land, including air space; Inherently permanent structures, including any residential, commercial, or industrial building; A condominium unit and its accessory fixtures and common elements, including land; and Stock in a cooperative housing corporation (as defined in section 216 of the Internal Revenue Code). Tax 2011   A “real estate reporting person” could include the buyer's attorney, your attorney, the title or escrow company, a mortgage lender, your broker, the buyer's broker, or the person acquiring the biggest interest in the property. Tax 2011   Your Form 1099-S will show the gross proceeds from the sale or exchange in box 2. Tax 2011 See the Instructions for Form 8949 and the Instructions for Schedule D (Form 1040) for how to report these transactions and include them in Part I or Part II of Form 8949 as appropriate. Tax 2011 However, report like-kind exchanges on Form 8824 instead. Tax 2011   It is unlawful for any real estate reporting person to separately charge you for complying with the requirement to file Form 1099-S. Tax 2011 Nominees. Tax 2011   If you receive gross proceeds as a nominee (that is, the gross proceeds are in your name but actually belong to someone else), see the Instructions for Form 8949 for how to report these amounts on Form 8949. Tax 2011 File Form 1099-B or Form 1099-S with the IRS. Tax 2011   If you received gross proceeds as a nominee in 2013, you must file a Form 1099-B or Form 1099-S for those proceeds with the IRS. Tax 2011 Send the Form 1099-B or Form 1099-S with a Form 1096, Annual Summary and Transmittal of U. Tax 2011 S. Tax 2011 Information Returns, to your Internal Revenue Service Center by February 28, 2014 (March 31, 2014, if you file Form 1099-B or Form 1099-S electronically). Tax 2011 Give the actual owner of the proceeds Copy B of the Form 1099-B or Form 1099-S by February 18, 2014. Tax 2011 On Form 1099-B, you should be listed as the “Payer. Tax 2011 ” The other owner should be listed as the “Recipient. Tax 2011 ” On Form 1099-S, you should be listed as the “Filer. Tax 2011 ” The other owner should be listed as the “Transferor. Tax 2011 ” You do not have to file a Form 1099-B or Form 1099-S to show proceeds for your spouse. Tax 2011 For more information about the reporting requirements and the penalties for failure to file (or furnish) certain information returns, see the General Instructions for Certain Information Returns. Tax 2011 If you are filing electronically see Publication 1220. Tax 2011 Sale of property bought at various times. Tax 2011   If you sell a block of stock or other property that you bought at various times, report the short-term gain or loss from the sale on one row in Part I of Form 8949, and the long-term gain or loss on one row in Part II of Form 8949. Tax 2011 Write “Various” in column (b) for the “Date acquired. Tax 2011 ” Sale expenses. Tax 2011    On Form 8949, include in column (g) any expense of sale, such as broker's fees, commissions, state and local transfer taxes, and option premiums, unless you reported the net sales price in column (d). Tax 2011 If you include an expense of sale in column (g), enter “E” in column (f). Tax 2011   For more information about adjustments to basis, see chapter 13. Tax 2011 Short-term gains and losses. Tax 2011   Capital gain or loss on the sale or trade of investment property held 1 year or less is a short-term capital gain or loss. Tax 2011 You report it in Part I of Form 8949. Tax 2011   You combine your share of short-term capital gain or loss from partnerships, S corporations, estates, and trusts, and any short-term capital loss carryover, with your other short-term capital gains and losses to figure your net short-term capital gain or loss on line 7 of Schedule D (Form 1040). Tax 2011 Long-term gains and losses. Tax 2011    A capital gain or loss on the sale or trade of investment property held more than 1 year is a long-term capital gain or loss. Tax 2011 You report it in Part II of Form 8949. Tax 2011   You report the following in Part II of Schedule D (Form 1040): Undistributed long-term capital gains from a mutual fund (or other regulated investment company) or real estate investment trust (REIT); Your share of long-term capital gains or losses from partnerships, S corporations, estates, and trusts; All capital gain distributions from mutual funds and REITs not reported directly on line 10 of Form 1040A or line 13 of Form 1040; and Long-term capital loss carryovers. Tax 2011    The result after combining these items with your other long-term capital gains and losses is your net long-term capital gain or loss (Schedule D (Form 1040), line 15). Tax 2011 Total net gain or loss. Tax 2011   To figure your total net gain or loss, combine your net short-term capital gain or loss (Schedule D (Form 1040), line 7) with your net long-term capital gain or loss (Schedule D (Form 1040), line 15). Tax 2011 Enter the result on Schedule D (Form 1040), Part III, line 16. Tax 2011 If your losses are more than your gains, see Capital Losses , next. Tax 2011 If both lines 15 and 16 of your Schedule D (Form 1040) are gains and your taxable income on your Form 1040 is more than zero, see Capital Gain Tax Rates , later. Tax 2011 Capital Losses If your capital losses are more than your capital gains, you can claim a capital loss deduction. Tax 2011 Report the amount of the deduction on line 13 of Form 1040, in parentheses. Tax 2011 Limit on deduction. Tax 2011   Your allowable capital loss deduction, figured on Schedule D (Form 1040), is the lesser of: $3,000 ($1,500 if you are married and file a separate return); or Your total net loss as shown on line 16 of Schedule D (Form 1040). Tax 2011   You can use your total net loss to reduce your income dollar for dollar, up to the $3,000 limit. Tax 2011 Capital loss carryover. Tax 2011   If you have a total net loss on line 16 of Schedule D (Form 1040) that is more than the yearly limit on capital loss deductions, you can carry over the unused part to the next year and treat it as if you had incurred it in that next year. Tax 2011 If part of the loss is still unused, you can carry it over to later years until it is completely used up. Tax 2011   When you figure the amount of any capital loss carryover to the next year, you must take the current year's allowable deduction into account, whether or not you claimed it and whether or not you filed a return for the current year. Tax 2011   When you carry over a loss, it remains long term or short term. Tax 2011 A long-term capital loss you carry over to the next tax year will reduce that year's long-term capital gains before it reduces that year's short-term capital gains. Tax 2011 Figuring your carryover. Tax 2011   The amount of your capital loss carryover is the amount of your total net loss that is more than the lesser of: Your allowable capital loss deduction for the year; or Your taxable income increased by your allowable capital loss deduction for the year and your deduction for personal exemptions. Tax 2011   If your deductions are more than your gross income for the tax year, use your negative taxable income in computing the amount in item (2). Tax 2011    Complete the Capital Loss Carryover Worksheet in the Instructions for Schedule D or Publication 550 to determine the part of your capital loss that you can carry over. Tax 2011 Example. Tax 2011 Bob and Gloria sold securities in 2013. Tax 2011 The sales resulted in a capital loss of $7,000. Tax 2011 They had no other capital transactions. Tax 2011 Their taxable income was $26,000. Tax 2011 On their joint 2013 return, they can deduct $3,000. Tax 2011 The unused part of the loss, $4,000 ($7,000 − $3,000), can be carried over to 2014. Tax 2011 If their capital loss had been $2,000, their capital loss deduction would have been $2,000. Tax 2011 They would have no carryover. Tax 2011 Use short-term losses first. Tax 2011   When you figure your capital loss carryover, use your short-term capital losses first, even if you incurred them after a long-term capital loss. Tax 2011 If you have not reached the limit on the capital loss deduction after using the short-term capital losses, use the long-term capital losses until you reach the limit. Tax 2011 Decedent's capital loss. Tax 2011    A capital loss sustained by a decedent during his or her last tax year (or carried over to that year from an earlier year) can be deducted only on the final income tax return filed for the decedent. Tax 2011 The capital loss limits discussed earlier still apply in this situation. Tax 2011 The decedent's estate cannot deduct any of the loss or carry it over to following years. Tax 2011 Joint and separate returns. Tax 2011   If you and your spouse once filed separate returns and are now filing a joint return, combine your separate capital loss carryovers. Tax 2011 However, if you and your spouse once filed a joint return and are now filing separate returns, any capital loss carryover from the joint return can be deducted only on the return of the spouse who actually had the loss. Tax 2011 Capital Gain Tax Rates The tax rates that apply to a net capital gain are generally lower than the tax rates that apply to other income. Tax 2011 These lower rates are called the maximum capital gain rates. Tax 2011 The term “net capital gain” means the amount by which your net long-term capital gain for the year is more than your net short-term capital loss. Tax 2011 For 2013, the maximum capital gain rates are 0%, 15%, 20%, 25%, and 28%. Tax 2011 See Table 16-1 for details. Tax 2011 If you figure your tax using the maximum capital gain rate and the regular tax computation results in a lower tax, the regular tax computation applies. Tax 2011 Example. Tax 2011 All of your net capital gain is from selling collectibles, so the capital gain rate would be 28%. Tax 2011 If you are otherwise subject to a rate lower than 28%, the 28% rate does not apply. Tax 2011 Investment interest deducted. Tax 2011   If you claim a deduction for investment interest, you may have to reduce the amount of your net capital gain that is eligible for the capital gain tax rates. Tax 2011 Reduce it by the amount of the net capital gain you choose to include in investment income when figuring the limit on your investment interest deduction. Tax 2011 This is done on the Schedule D Tax Worksheet or the Qualified Dividends and Capital Gain Tax Worksheet. Tax 2011 For more information about the limit on investment interest, see Interest Expenses in chapter 3 of Publication 550. Tax 2011 Table 16-1. Tax 2011 What Is Your Maximum Capital Gain Rate? IF your net capital gain is from . Tax 2011 . Tax 2011 . Tax 2011 THEN your  maximum capital gain rate is . Tax 2011 . Tax 2011 .

Tax 2011 6% 20% other gain1 and the regular tax rate that would apply is 25%, 28%, 33%, or 35% 15% other gain1 and the regular tax rate that would apply is 10% or 15% 0% 1 Other gain means any gain that is not collectibles gain, gain on qualified small business stock, or unrecaptured section 1250 gain. Tax 2011     Collectibles gain or loss. Tax 2011   This is gain or loss from the sale or trade of a work of art, rug, antique, metal (such as gold, silver, and platinum bullion), gem, stamp, coin, or alcoholic beverage held more than 1 year. Tax 2011   Collectibles gain includes gain from sale of an interest in a partnership, S corporation, or trust due to unrealized appreciation of collectibles. Tax 2011 Gain on qualified small business stock. Tax 2011    If you realized a gain from qualified small business stock that you held more than 5 years, you generally can exclude some or all of your gain under section 1202. Tax 2011 The eligible gain minus your section 1202 exclusion is a 28% rate gain. Tax 2011 See Gains on Qualified Small Business Stock in chapter 4 of Publication 550. Tax 2011 Unrecaptured section 1250 gain. Tax 2011    Generally, this is any part of your capital gain from selling section 1250 property (real property) that is due to depreciation (but not more than your net section 1231 gain), reduced by any net loss in the 28% group. Tax 2011 Use the Unrecaptured Section 1250 Gain Worksheet in the Schedule D (Form 1040) instructions to figure your unrecaptured section 1250 gain. Tax 2011 For more information about section 1250 property and section 1231 gain, see chapter 3 of Publication 544. Tax 2011 Tax computation using maximum capital gain rates. Tax 2011   Use the Qualified Dividends and Capital Gain Tax Worksheet or the Schedule D Tax Worksheet (whichever applies) to figure your tax if you have qualified dividends or net capital gain. Tax 2011 You have net capital gain if Schedule D (Form 1040), lines 15 and 16, are both gains. Tax 2011 Schedule D Tax Worksheet. Tax 2011   Use the Schedule D Tax Worksheet in the Schedule D (Form 1040) instructions to figure your tax if: You have to file Schedule D (Form 1040); and Schedule D (Form 1040), line 18 (28% rate gain) or line 19 (unrecaptured section 1250 gain), is more than zero. Tax 2011 Qualified Dividends and Capital Gain Tax Worksheet. Tax 2011   If you do not have to use the Schedule D Tax Worksheet (as explained above) and any of the following apply, use the Qualified Dividends and Capital Gain Tax Worksheet in the instructions for Form 1040 or Form 1040A (whichever you file) to figure your tax. Tax 2011 You received qualified dividends. Tax 2011 (See Qualified Dividends in chapter 8. Tax 2011 ) You do not have to file Schedule D (Form 1040) and you received capital gain distributions. Tax 2011 (See Exceptions to filing Form 8949 and Schedule D (Form 1040) , earlier. Tax 2011 ) Schedule D (Form 1040), lines 15 and 16, are both more than zero. Tax 2011 Alternative minimum tax. Tax 2011   These capital gain rates are also used in figuring alternative minimum tax. Tax 2011 Prev  Up  Next   Home   More Online Publications
