Employment Taxes , and Self-employment tax , later. 2010 form 1040a Introduction You can deduct various federal, state, local, and foreign taxes directly attributable to your trade or business as business expenses. 2010 form 1040a You cannot deduct federal income taxes, estate and gift taxes, or state inheritance, legacy, and succession taxes. 2010 form 1040a Topics - This chapter discusses: When to deduct taxes Real estate taxes Income taxes Employment taxes Other taxes Useful Items - You may want to see: Publication 15 (Circular E), Employer's Tax Guide 334 Tax Guide for Small Business 510 Excise Taxes 538 Accounting Periods and Methods 551 Basis of Assets Form (and Instructions) Sch A (Form 1040) Itemized Deductions Sch SE (Form 1040) Self-Employment Tax 3115 Application for Change in Accounting Method 8959 Additional Medicare Tax See chapter 12 for information about getting publications and forms. 2010 form 1040a When To Deduct Taxes Generally, you can only deduct taxes in the year you pay them. 2010 form 1040a This applies whether you use the cash method or an accrual method of accounting. 2010 form 1040a Under an accrual method, you can deduct a tax before you pay it if you meet the exception for recurring items discussed under Economic Performance in Publication 538. 2010 form 1040a You can also elect to ratably accrue real estate taxes as discussed later under Real Estate Taxes . 2010 form 1040a Limit on accrual of taxes. 2010 form 1040a   A taxing jurisdiction can require the use of a date for accruing taxes that is earlier than the date it originally required. 2010 form 1040a However, if you use an accrual method, and can deduct the tax before you pay it, use the original accrual date for the year of change and all future years to determine when you can deduct the tax. 2010 form 1040a Example. 2010 form 1040a Your state imposes a tax on personal property used in a trade or business conducted in the state. 2010 form 1040a This tax is assessed and becomes a lien as of July 1 (accrual date). 2010 form 1040a In 2013, the state changed the assessment and lien dates from July 1, 2014, to December 31, 2013, for property tax year 2014. 2010 form 1040a Use the original accrual date (July 1, 2014) to determine when you can deduct the tax. 2010 form 1040a You must also use the July 1 accrual date for all future years to determine when you can deduct the tax. 2010 form 1040a Uniform capitalization rules. 2010 form 1040a   Uniform capitalization rules apply to certain taxpayers who produce real property or tangible personal property for use in a trade or business or for sale to customers. 2010 form 1040a They also apply to certain taxpayers who acquire property for resale. 2010 form 1040a Under these rules, you either include certain costs in inventory or capitalize certain expenses related to the property, such as taxes. 2010 form 1040a For more information, see chapter 1. 2010 form 1040a Carrying charges. 2010 form 1040a   Carrying charges include taxes you pay to carry or develop real estate or to carry, transport, or install personal property. 2010 form 1040a You can elect to capitalize carrying charges not subject to the uniform capitalization rules if they are otherwise deductible. 2010 form 1040a For more information, see chapter 7. 2010 form 1040a Refunds of taxes. 2010 form 1040a   If you receive a refund for any taxes you deducted in an earlier year, include the refund in income to the extent the deduction reduced your federal income tax in the earlier year. 2010 form 1040a For more information, see Recovery of amount deducted (tax benefit rule) in chapter 1. 2010 form 1040a    You must include in income any interest you receive on tax refunds. 2010 form 1040a Real Estate Taxes Deductible real estate taxes are any state, local, or foreign taxes on real estate levied for the general public welfare. 2010 form 1040a The taxing authority must base the taxes on the assessed value of the real estate and charge them uniformly against all property under its jurisdiction. 2010 form 1040a Deductible real estate taxes generally do not include taxes charged for local benefits and improvements that increase the value of the property. 2010 form 1040a See Taxes for local benefits , later. 2010 form 1040a If you use an accrual method, you generally cannot accrue real estate taxes until you pay them to the government authority. 2010 form 1040a However, you can elect to ratably accrue the taxes during the year. 2010 form 1040a See Electing to ratably accrue , later. 2010 form 1040a Taxes for local benefits. 2010 form 1040a   Generally, you cannot deduct taxes charged for local benefits and improvements that tend to increase the value of your property. 2010 form 1040a These include assessments for streets, sidewalks, water mains, sewer lines, and public parking facilities. 2010 form 1040a You should increase the basis of your property by the amount of the assessment. 2010 form 1040a   You can deduct taxes for these local benefits only if the taxes are for maintenance, repairs, or interest charges related to those benefits. 2010 form 1040a If part of the tax is for maintenance, repairs, or interest, you must be able to show how much of the tax is for these expenses to claim a deduction for that part of the tax. 2010 form 1040a Example. 2010 form 1040a To improve downtown commercial business, Waterfront City converted a downtown business area street into an enclosed pedestrian mall. 2010 form 1040a The city assessed the full cost of construction, financed with 10-year bonds, against the affected properties. 2010 form 1040a The city is paying the principal and interest with the annual payments made by the property owners. 2010 form 1040a The assessments for construction costs are not deductible as taxes or as business expenses, but are depreciable capital expenses. 2010 form 1040a The part of the payments used to pay the interest charges on the bonds is deductible as taxes. 2010 form 1040a Charges for services. 2010 form 1040a   Water bills, sewerage, and other service charges assessed against your business property are not real estate taxes, but are deductible as business expenses. 2010 form 1040a Purchase or sale of real estate. 2010 form 1040a   If real estate is sold, the real estate taxes must be allocated between the buyer and the seller. 2010 form 1040a   The buyer and seller must allocate the real estate taxes according to the number of days in the real property tax year (the period to which the tax imposed relates) that each owned the property. 2010 form 1040a Treat the seller as paying the taxes up to but not including the date of sale. 2010 form 1040a Treat the buyer as paying the taxes beginning with the date of sale. 2010 form 1040a You can usually find this information on the settlement statement you received at closing. 2010 form 1040a   If you (the seller) use an accrual method and have not elected to ratably accrue real estate taxes, you are considered to have accrued your part of the tax on the date you sell the property. 2010 form 1040a Example. 2010 form 1040a Alberto Verde, a calendar year accrual method taxpayer, owns real estate in Olmo County. 2010 form 1040a He has not elected to ratably accrue property taxes. 2010 form 1040a November 30 of each year is the assessment and lien date for the current real property tax year, which is the calendar year. 2010 form 1040a He sold the property on June 30, 2013. 2010 form 1040a Under his accounting method he would not be able to claim a deduction for the taxes because the sale occurred before November 30. 2010 form 1040a He is treated as having accrued his part of the tax, 181/366  (January 1–June 29), on June 30, and he can deduct it for 2013. 2010 form 1040a Electing to ratably accrue. 2010 form 1040a   If you use an accrual method, you can elect to accrue real estate tax related to a definite period ratably over that period. 2010 form 1040a Example. 2010 form 1040a Juan Sanchez is a calendar year taxpayer who uses an accrual method. 2010 form 1040a His real estate taxes for the real property tax year, July 1, 2013, to June 30, 2014, are $1,200. 2010 form 1040a July 1 is the assessment and lien date. 2010 form 1040a If Juan elects to ratably accrue the taxes, $600 will accrue in 2013 ($1,200 × 6/12, July 1–December 31) and the balance will accrue in 2014. 2010 form 1040a Separate elections. 2010 form 1040a   You can elect to ratably accrue the taxes for each separate trade or business and for nonbusiness activities if you account for them separately. 2010 form 1040a Once you elect to ratably accrue real estate taxes, you must use that method unless you get permission from the IRS to change. 2010 form 1040a See Form 3115 , later. 2010 form 1040a Making the election. 2010 form 1040a   If you elect to ratably accrue the taxes for the first year in which you incur real estate taxes, attach a statement to your income tax return for that year. 2010 form 1040a The statement should show all the following items. 2010 form 1040a The trades or businesses to which the election applies and the accounting method or methods used. 2010 form 1040a The period to which the taxes relate. 2010 form 1040a The computation of the real estate tax deduction for that first year. 2010 form 1040a   Generally, you must file your return by the due date (including extensions). 2010 form 1040a However, if you timely filed your return for the year without electing to ratably accrue, you can still make the election by filing an amended return within 6 months after the due date of the return (excluding extensions). 2010 form 1040a Attach the statement to the amended return and write “Filed pursuant to section 301. 2010 form 1040a 9100-2” on the statement. 2010 form 1040a File the amended return at the same address where you filed the original return. 2010 form 1040a Form 3115. 2010 form 1040a    If you elect to ratably accrue real estate taxes for a year after the first year in which you incur real estate taxes, or if you want to revoke your election to ratably accrue real estate taxes, file Form 3115. 2010 form 1040a For more information, including applicable time frames for filing, see the Instructions for Form 3115. 2010 form 1040a Note. 2010 form 1040a If you are filing an application for a change in accounting method filed after January 9, 2011, for a year of change ending after April 29, 2010, see Revenue Procedure 2011-14, 2011-4 I. 2010 form 1040a R. 2010 form 1040a B. 2010 form 1040a 330, as modified

Income Taxes This section discusses federal, state, local, and foreign income taxes. 2010 form 1040a Federal income taxes. 2010 form 1040a   You cannot deduct federal income taxes. 2010 form 1040a State and local income taxes. 2010 form 1040a   A corporation or partnership can deduct state and local income taxes imposed on the corporation or partnership as business expenses. 2010 form 1040a An individual can deduct state and local income taxes only as an itemized deduction on Schedule A (Form 1040). 2010 form 1040a   However, an individual can deduct a state tax on gross income (as distinguished from net income) directly attributable to a trade or business as a business expense. 2010 form 1040a Accrual of contested income taxes. 2010 form 1040a   If you use an accrual method, and you contest a state or local income tax liability, you must accrue and deduct any contested amount in the tax year in which the liability is finally determined. 2010 form 1040a   If additional state or local income taxes for a prior year are assessed in a later year, you can deduct the taxes in the year in which they were originally imposed (the prior year) if the tax liability is not contested. 2010 form 1040a You cannot deduct them in the year in which the liability is finally determined. 2010 form 1040a    The filing of an income tax return is not considered a contest and, in the absence of an overt act of protest, you can deduct the tax in the prior year. 2010 form 1040a Also, you can deduct any additional taxes in the prior year if you do not show some affirmative evidence of denial of the liability. 2010 form 1040a   However, if you consistently deduct additional assessments in the year they are paid or finally determined (including those for which there was no contest), you must continue to do so. 2010 form 1040a You cannot take a deduction in the earlier year unless you receive permission to change your method of accounting. 2010 form 1040a For more information on accounting methods, see When Can I Deduct an Expense in chapter 1. 2010 form 1040a Foreign income taxes. 2010 form 1040a   Generally, you can take either a deduction or a credit for

Foreign Tax Credit for Individuals. 2010 form 1040a Employment Taxes If you have employees, you must withhold various taxes from your employees' pay. 2010 form 1040a Most employers must withhold their employees' share of social security, Medicare taxes, and Additional Medicare Tax (if applicable) along with state and federal income taxes. 2010 form 1040a You may also need to pay certain employment taxes from your own funds. 2010 form 1040a These include your share of social security and Medicare taxes as an employer, along with unemployment taxes. 2010 form 1040a Note. 2010 form 1040a Additional Medicare Tax is only imposed on the employee. 2010 form 1040a There is no employer share of Additional Medicare Tax. 2010 form 1040a Your deduction for wages paid is not reduced by the social security and Medicare taxes, Additional Medicare Tax, and income taxes you withhold from your employees. 2010 form 1040a You can deduct the employment taxes you must pay from your own funds as taxes. 2010 form 1040a Example. 2010 form 1040a You pay your employee $18,000 a year. 2010 form 1040a However, after you withhold various taxes, your employee receives $14,500. 2010 form 1040a You also pay an additional $1,500 in employment taxes. 2010 form 1040a You should deduct the full $18,000 as wages. 2010 form 1040a You can deduct the $1,500 you pay from your own funds as taxes. 2010 form 1040a For more information on employment taxes, see Publication 15 (Circular E). 2010 form 1040a Unemployment fund taxes. 2010 form 1040a   As an employer, you may have to make payments to a state unemployment compensation fund or to a state disability benefit fund. 2010 form 1040a Deduct these payments as taxes. 2010 form 1040a Other Taxes The following are other taxes you can deduct if you incur them in the ordinary course of your trade or business. 2010 form 1040a Excise taxes. 2010 form 1040a   Generally, you can deduct as a business expense all excise taxes that are ordinary and

motor fuels that you use in your business are included as part of the cost of the fuel. 2010 form 1040a Do not deduct these taxes as a separate item. 2010 form 1040a   You may be entitled to a credit or refund for federal excise tax you paid on fuels used for certain purposes. 2010 form 1040a For more information, see Publication 510. 2010 form 1040a Occupational taxes. 2010 form 1040a   You can

form 1040a   You can deduct any tax imposed by a state or local government on personal property used in your trade or business. 2010 form 1040a Sales tax. 2010 form 1040a   Treat any sales tax you pay on a service or on the purchase or use of property as part of the cost of the service or property. 2010 form 1040a If the service or the cost or use of the property is a deductible business expense, you can deduct the tax as part of that service or cost. 2010 form 1040a If the property is merchandise bought for resale, the sales tax is part of the cost of the merchandise. 2010 form 1040a If the property is depreciable, add the sales tax to the basis for depreciation. 2010 form 1040a For more information on basis, see Publication 551. 2010 form 1040a    Do not deduct state and local sales taxes imposed on the buyer that you must collect and pay over to the state or local government. 2010 form 1040a Also, do not include these taxes in gross receipts or sales. 2010 form 1040a Self-employment tax. 2010 form 1040a   You can deduct part of your self-employment tax as a business expense in figuring your adjusted gross income. 2010 form 1040a This deduction only affects your income tax. 2010 form 1040a It does not affect your net earnings from self-employment or your self-employment tax. 2010 form 1040a   To deduct the tax, enter on Form 1040, line 27, the amount shown on the Deduction for one-half of self-employment tax line of Schedule SE (Form 1040). 2010 form 1040a   For more information on self-employment tax, see Publication 334. 2010 form 1040a Additional
