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. 2007 tax returns 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). 2007 tax returns Casualty and Theft Losses The following paragraphs explain changes to casualty and theft losses that occurred in the Kansas disaster area. 2007 tax returns Limits on personal casualty or theft losses in the Kansas disaster area. 2007 tax returns   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. 2007 tax returns Qualifying losses include losses from casualties and thefts that arose in the disaster area and that were attributable to the storms and tornadoes. 2007 tax returns When to deduct the loss. 2007 tax returns   Casualty and theft losses are generally deductible only in the year the casualty occurred or the theft was discovered. 2007 tax returns However, the Kansas disaster area is a Presidentially declared disaster. 2007 tax returns Therefore, you could have elected to deduct losses from these storms and tornadoes on your tax return for the previous year. 2007 tax returns The deadline for making this election has expired. 2007 tax returns   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. 2007 tax returns 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. 2007 tax returns   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. 2007 tax returns 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. 2007 tax returns Individuals filing or amending their 2007 tax return should cross out “2006” and enter “2007” at the top of Form 4684. 2007 tax returns They must also enter the amount from line 21 of that form on line 20 of Schedule A (Form 1040). 2007 tax returns 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. 2007 tax returns 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). 2007 tax returns 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. 2007 tax returns For more information, see the Instructions for Form 4684. 2007 tax returns Net Operating Losses Qualified recovery assistance loss. 2007 tax returns   Generally, you can carry a net operating loss (NOL) back to the 2 tax years before the NOL year. 2007 tax returns 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. 2007 tax returns In addition, the 90% limit on the alternative tax NOL deduction (ATNOLD) does not apply to such portion of the ATNOLD. 2007 tax returns   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. 2007 tax returns Qualified recovery assistance casualty loss. 2007 tax returns   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. 2007 tax returns 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. 2007 tax returns 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. 2007 tax returns Amended return. 2007 tax returns   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. 2007 tax returns More information. 2007 tax returns    For more information on NOLs, see Publication 536. 2007 tax returns 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. 2007 tax returns Definitions Qualified recovery assistance distribution. 2007 tax returns   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. 2007 tax returns The distribution was made after May 3, 2007, and before January 1, 2009. 2007 tax returns Your main home was located in the Kansas disaster area on May 4, 2007. 2007 tax returns You sustained an economic loss because of the storms and tornadoes. 2007 tax returns 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. 2007 tax returns   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. 2007 tax returns Qualified recovery assistance distributions are permitted without regard to your need or the actual amount of your economic loss. 2007 tax returns   The total of your qualified recovery assistance distributions from all plans is limited to $100,000. 2007 tax returns 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. 2007 tax returns   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. 2007 tax returns Eligible retirement plan. 2007 tax returns   An eligible retirement plan can be any of the following. 2007 tax returns A qualified pension, profit-sharing, or stock bonus plan (including a 401(k) plan). 2007 tax returns A qualified annuity plan. 2007 tax returns A tax-sheltered annuity contract. 2007 tax returns A governmental section 457 deferred compensation plan. 2007 tax returns A traditional, SEP, SIMPLE, or Roth IRA. 2007 tax returns Main home. 2007 tax returns   Generally, your main home is the home where you live most of the time. 2007 tax returns A temporary absence due to special circumstances, such as illness, education, business, military service, evacuation, or vacation, will not change your main home. 2007 tax returns Taxation of Qualified Recovery Assistance Distributions Qualified recovery assistance distributions are included in income in equal amounts over three years. 2007 tax returns However, if you elect, you can include the entire distribution in your income in the year it was received. 2007 tax returns 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). 2007 tax returns 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. 2007 tax returns For more information, see How To Report Qualified Recovery Assistance Distributions on page 4. 2007 tax returns 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. 2007 tax returns Also, you can repay a qualified recovery assistance distribution made on account of a hardship from a retirement plan. 2007 tax returns However, see Exceptions below for qualified recovery assistance distributions you cannot repay. 2007 tax returns You have three years
