Amending 2011 Tax Return

Amending 2011 tax return 2. Amending 2011 tax return   Foreclosures and Repossessions Table of Contents Amount realized and ordinary income on a recourse debt. Amending 2011 tax return Amount realized on a nonrecourse debt. Amending 2011 tax return If you do not make payments you owe on a loan secured by property, the lender may foreclose on the loan or repossess the property. Amending 2011 tax return The foreclosure or repossession is treated as a sale from which you may realize gain or loss. Amending 2011 tax return This is true even if you voluntarily return the property to the lender. Amending 2011 tax return If the outstanding loan balance was more than the FMV of the property and the lender cancels all or part of the remaining loan balance, you also may realize ordinary income from the cancellation of debt. Amending 2011 tax return You must report this income on your return unless certain exceptions or exclusions apply. Amending 2011 tax return See chapter 1 for more details. Amending 2011 tax return Borrower's gain or loss. Amending 2011 tax return    You figure and report gain or loss from a foreclosure or repossession in the same way as gain or loss from a sale. Amending 2011 tax return The gain is the difference between the amount realized and your adjusted basis in the transferred property (amount realized minus adjusted basis). Amending 2011 tax return The loss is the difference between your adjusted basis in the transferred property and the amount realized (adjusted basis minus amount realized). Amending 2011 tax return For more information on figuring gain or loss from the sale of property, see Gain or Loss From Sales and Exchanges in Publication 544. Amending 2011 tax return You can use Table 1-1 to figure your ordinary income from the cancellation of debt and your gain or loss from a foreclosure or repossession. Amending 2011 tax return Amount realized and ordinary income on a recourse debt. Amending 2011 tax return    If you are personally liable for the debt, the amount realized on the foreclosure or repossession includes the smaller of: The outstanding debt immediately before the transfer reduced by any amount for which you remain personally liable immediately after the transfer, or The FMV of the transferred property. Amending 2011 tax return The amount realized also includes any proceeds you received from the foreclosure sale. Amending 2011 tax return If the FMV of the transferred property is less than the total outstanding debt immediately before the transfer reduced by any amount for which you remain personally liable immediately after the transfer, the difference is ordinary income from the cancellation of debt. Amending 2011 tax return You must report this income on your return unless certain exceptions or exclusions apply. Amending 2011 tax return See chapter 1 for more details. Amending 2011 tax return       Example 1. Amending 2011 tax return Tara bought a new car for $15,000. Amending 2011 tax return She made a $2,000 downpayment and borrowed the remaining $13,000 from the dealer's credit company. Amending 2011 tax return Tara is personally liable for the loan (recourse debt) and the car is pledged as security for the loan. Amending 2011 tax return On August 1, 2013, the credit company repossessed the car because Tara had stopped making loan payments. Amending 2011 tax return The balance due after taking into account the payments Tara made was $10,000. Amending 2011 tax return The FMV of the car when it was repossessed was $9,000. Amending 2011 tax return On November 15, 2013, the credit company forgave the remaining $1,000 balance on the loan due to insufficient assets. Amending 2011 tax return In this case, the amount Tara realizes is $9,000. Amending 2011 tax return This is the smaller of: The $10,000 outstanding debt immediately before the repossession reduced by the $1,000 for which she remains personally liable immediately after the repossession ($10,000 − $1,000 = $9,000), or The $9,000 FMV of the car. Amending 2011 tax return Tara figures her gain or loss on the repossession by comparing the $9,000 amount realized with her $15,000 adjusted basis. Amending 2011 tax return She has a $6,000 nondeductible loss. Amending 2011 tax return After the cancellation of the remaining balance on the loan in November, Tara also has ordinary income from cancellation of debt in the amount of $1,000 (the remaining balance on the $10,000 loan after the $9,000 amount satisfied by the FMV of the repossessed car). Amending 2011 tax return Tara must report this $1,000 on her return unless one of the exceptions or exclusions described in chapter 1 applies. Amending 2011 tax return Example 2. Amending 2011 tax return Lili paid $200,000 for her home. Amending 2011 tax return She made a $15,000 downpayment and borrowed the remaining $185,000 from a bank. Amending 2011 tax return Lili is personally liable for the mortgage loan and the house secures the loan. Amending 2011 tax return In 2013, the bank foreclosed on the mortgage because Lili stopped making payments. Amending 2011 tax return When the bank foreclosed the mortgage, the balance due was $180,000, the FMV of the house was $170,000, and Lili's adjusted basis was $175,000 due to a casualty loss she had deducted. Amending 2011 tax return At the time of the foreclosure, the bank forgave $2,000 of the $10,000 debt in excess of the FMV ($180,000 minus $170,000). Amending 2011 tax return She remained personally liable for the $8,000 balance. Amending 2011 tax return In this case, Lili has ordinary income from the cancellation of debt in the amount of $2,000. Amending 2011 tax return The $2,000 income from the cancellation of debt is figured by subtracting the $170,000 FMV of the house from the $172,000 difference between her total outstanding debt immediately before the transfer of property and the amount for which she remains personally liable immediately after the transfer ($180,000 minus $8,000). Amending 2011 tax return She is able to exclude the $2,000 of canceled debt from her income under the qualified principal residence indebtedness rules discussed earlier. Amending 2011 tax return Lili must also determine her gain or loss from the foreclosure. Amending 2011 tax return In this case, the amount that she realizes is $170,000. Amending 2011 tax return This is the smaller of: (a) the $180,000 outstanding debt immediately before the transfer reduced by the $8,000 for which she remains personally liable immediately after the transfer ($180,000 − $8,000 = $172,000) or (b) the $170,000 FMV of the house. Amending 2011 tax return Lili figures her gain or loss on the foreclosure by comparing the $170,000 amount realized with her $175,000 adjusted basis. Amending 2011 tax return She has a $5,000 nondeductible loss. Amending 2011 tax return Table 1-1. Amending 2011 tax return Worksheet for Foreclosures and Repossessions Part 1. Amending 2011 tax return Complete Part 1 only if you were personally liable for the debt (even if none of the debt was canceled). Amending 2011 tax return Otherwise, go to Part 2. Amending 2011 tax return 1. Amending 2011 tax return Enter the amount of outstanding debt immediately before the transfer of property reduced by any amount for which you remain personally liable immediately after the transfer of property   2. Amending 2011 tax return Enter the fair market value of the transferred property   3. Amending 2011 tax return Ordinary income from the cancellation of debt upon foreclosure or repossession. Amending 2011 tax return * Subtract line 2 from line 1. Amending 2011 tax return If less than zero, enter zero. Amending 2011 tax return Next, go to Part 2   Part 2. Amending 2011 tax return Gain or loss from foreclosure or repossession. Amending 2011 tax return   4. Amending 2011 tax return Enter the smaller of line 1 or line 2. Amending 2011 tax return If you did not complete Part 1 (because you were not personally liable for the debt), enter the amount of outstanding debt immediately before the transfer of property   5. Amending 2011 tax return Enter any proceeds you received from the foreclosure sale   6. Amending 2011 tax return Add line 4 and line 5   7. Amending 2011 tax return Enter the adjusted basis of the transferred property   8. Amending 2011 tax return Gain or loss from foreclosure or repossession. Amending 2011 tax return Subtract line 7 from line 6   * The income may not be taxable. Amending 2011 tax return See chapter 1 for more details. Amending 2011 tax return Amount realized on a nonrecourse debt. Amending 2011 tax return    If you are not personally liable for repaying the debt secured by the transferred property, the amount you realize includes the full amount of the outstanding debt immediately before the transfer. Amending 2011 tax return This is true even if the FMV of the property is less than the outstanding debt immediately before the transfer. Amending 2011 tax return Example 1. Amending 2011 tax return Tara bought a new car for $15,000. Amending 2011 tax return She made a $2,000 downpayment and borrowed the remaining $13,000 from the dealer's credit company. Amending 2011 tax return Tara is not personally liable for the loan (nonrecourse), but pledged the new car as security for the loan. Amending 2011 tax return On August 1, 2013, the credit company repossessed the car because Tara had stopped making loan payments. Amending 2011 tax return The balance due after taking into account the payments Tara made was $10,000. Amending 2011 tax return The FMV of the car when it was repossessed was $9,000. Amending 2011 tax return The amount Tara realized on the repossession is $10,000. Amending 2011 tax return That is the outstanding amount of debt immediately before the repossession, even though the FMV of the car is less than $10,000. Amending 2011 tax return Tara figures her gain or loss on the repossession by comparing the $10,000 amount realized with her $15,000 adjusted basis. Amending 2011 tax return Tara has a $5,000 nondeductible loss. Amending 2011 tax return Example 2. Amending 2011 tax return Lili paid $200,000 for her home. Amending 2011 tax return She made a $15,000 downpayment and borrowed the remaining $185,000 from a bank. Amending 2011 tax return She is not personally liable for the loan, but grants the bank a mortgage. Amending 2011 tax return The bank foreclosed on the mortgage because Lili stopped making payments. Amending 2011 tax return When the bank foreclosed on the mortgage, the balance due was $180,000, the FMV of the house was $170,000, and Lili's adjusted basis was $175,000 due to a casualty loss she had deducted. Amending 2011 tax return The amount Lili realized on the foreclosure is $180,000, the outstanding debt immediately before the foreclosure. Amending 2011 tax return She figures her gain or loss by comparing the $180,000 amount realized with her $175,000 adjusted basis. Amending 2011 tax return Lili has a $5,000 realized gain. Amending 2011 tax return See Publication 523 to figure and report any taxable amount. Amending 2011 tax return Forms 1099-A and 1099-C. Amending 2011 tax return    A lender who acquires an interest in your property in a foreclosure or repossession should send you Form 1099-A, Acquisition or Abandonment of Secured Property, showing information you need to figure your gain or loss. Amending 2011 tax return However, if the lender also cancels part of your debt and must file Form 1099-C, the lender can include the information about the foreclosure or repossession on that form instead of on Form 1099-A. Amending 2011 tax return The lender must file Form 1099-C and send you a copy if the amount of debt canceled is $600 or more and the lender is a financial institution, credit union, federal government agency, or any organization that has a significant trade or business of lending money. Amending 2011 tax return For foreclosures or repossessions occurring in 2013, these forms should be sent to you by January 31, 2014.
