Efile 7004 tax extension You join a barter club and agree to provide plumbing services to any member for a specified number of hours. Efile 7004 tax extension Each member has access to a directory that lists the members of the club and the services available. Efile 7004 tax extension Members contact each other directly and request services to be performed. Efile 7004 tax extension You are not required to provide services unless requested by another member, but you can use as many of the offered services as you wish without paying a fee. Efile 7004 tax extension You must include the fair market value of any services you receive from club members in your gross receipts when you receive them even if you have not provided any services to club members. Efile 7004 tax extension Information returns. Efile 7004 tax extension   If you are involved in a bartering transaction, you may have to file either of the following forms.

Efile 7004 tax extension For information about these forms, see the General Instructions for Certain Information Returns. Efile 7004 tax extension Real Estate Rents If you are a real estate dealer who receives income from renting real property or an owner of a hotel, motel, etc. Efile 7004 tax extension , who provides services (maid services, etc. Efile 7004 tax extension ) for guests, report the rental income and expenses on Schedule C or C-EZ.

Efile 7004 tax extension For more information, see Publication 527, Residential Rental Property (Including Rental of Vacation Homes). Efile 7004 tax extension Real estate dealer. Efile 7004 tax extension   You are a real estate dealer if you are engaged in the business of selling real estate to customers with the purpose of making a profit from those sales. Efile 7004 tax extension Rent you receive from real estate held for sale to customers is subject to SE tax. Efile 7004 tax extension However, rent you receive from real estate held for speculation or investment is not subject to SE tax. Efile 7004 tax extension Trailer park owner. Efile 7004 tax extension   Rental income from a trailer park is subject to SE tax if you are a self-employed trailer park owner who provides trailer lots and facilities and substantial services for the convenience of your tenants. Efile 7004 tax extension    You generally are considered to provide substantial services for tenants if they are primarily for the tenants' convenience and normally are not provided to maintain the lots in a condition for occupancy. Efile 7004 tax extension Services are substantial if the compensation for the services makes up a material part of the tenants' rental payments. Efile 7004 tax extension   Examples of services that are not normally provided for the tenants' convenience include supervising and maintaining a recreational hall provided by the park, distributing a monthly newsletter to tenants, operating a laundry facility, and helping tenants buy or sell their trailers. Efile 7004 tax extension   Examples of services that are normally provided to maintain the lots in a condition for tenant occupancy include city sewerage, electrical connections, and roadways. Efile 7004 tax extension Hotels, boarding houses, and apartments. Efile 7004 tax extension   Rental income you receive for the use or occupancy of hotels, boarding houses, or apartment houses is subject to SE tax if you provide services for the occupants. Efile 7004 tax extension   Generally, you are considered to provide services for the occupants if the services are primarily for their convenience and are not services normally provided with the rental of rooms for occupancy only. Efile 7004 tax extension An example of a service that is not normally provided for the convenience of the occupants is maid service. Efile 7004 tax extension However, providing heat and light, cleaning stairways and lobbies, and collecting trash are services normally provided for the occupants' convenience. Efile 7004 tax extension Prepaid rent. Efile 7004 tax extension   Advance payments received under a lease that does not put any restriction on their use or enjoyment are income in the year you receive them. Efile 7004 tax extension This is true no matter what accounting method or period you use. Efile 7004 tax extension Lease bonus. Efile 7004 tax extension   A bonus you receive from a lessee for granting a lease is an addition to the rent. Efile 7004 tax extension Include it in your gross receipts in the year received. Efile 7004 tax extension Lease cancellation payments. Efile 7004 tax extension   Report payments you receive from your lessee for canceling a lease in your gross receipts in the year received. Efile 7004 tax extension Payments to third parties. Efile 7004 tax extension   If your lessee makes payments to someone else under an agreement to pay your debts or obligations, include the payments in your gross receipts when the lessee makes the payments. Efile 7004 tax extension A common example of this kind of income is a lessee's payment of your property taxes on leased real property. Efile 7004 tax extension Settlement payments. Efile 7004 tax extension   Payments you receive in settlement of a lessee's obligation to restore the leased property to its original condition are income in the amount that the payments exceed the adjusted basis of the leasehold improvements destroyed, damaged, removed, or disconnected by the lessee. Efile 7004 tax extension Personal Property Rents If you are in the business of renting personal property (equipment, vehicles, formal wear, etc. Efile 7004 tax extension ), include the rental amount you receive in your gross receipts on Schedule C or C-EZ. Efile 7004 tax extension Prepaid rent and other payments described in the preceding Real Estate Rents discussion can also be received for renting personal property. Efile 7004 tax extension If you receive any of those payments, include them in your gross receipts as explained in that discussion. Efile 7004 tax extension Interest and Dividend Income Interest and dividends may be considered business income. Efile 7004 tax extension Interest. Efile 7004 tax extension   Interest received on notes receivable that you have accepted in the ordinary course of business is business income. Efile 7004 tax extension Interest received on loans is business income if you are in the business of lending money. Efile 7004 tax extension Uncollectible loans. Efile 7004 tax extension   If a loan payable to you becomes uncollectible during the tax year and you use an accrual method of accounting, you must include in gross income interest accrued up to the time the loan became uncollectible. Efile 7004 tax extension If the accrued interest later becomes uncollectible, you may be able to take a bad debt deduction. Efile 7004 tax extension See Bad Debts in chapter 8. Efile 7004 tax extension Unstated interest. Efile 7004 tax extension   If little or no interest is charged on an installment sale, you may have to treat a part of each payment as unstated interest. Efile 7004 tax extension See Unstated Interest and Original Issue Discount (OID) in Publication 537, Installment Sales. Efile 7004 tax extension Dividends. Efile 7004 tax extension   Generally, dividends are business income to dealers in securities. Efile 7004 tax extension For most sole proprietors and statutory employees, however, dividends are nonbusiness income. Efile 7004 tax extension If you hold stock as a personal investment separately from your business activity, the dividends from the stock are nonbusiness income. Efile 7004 tax extension   If you receive dividends from business insurance premiums you deducted in an earlier year, you must report all or part of the dividend as business income on your return. Efile 7004 tax extension To find out how much you have to report, see   Recovery of items previously deducted under Other Income, later. Efile 7004 tax extension Canceled Debt The following explains the general rule for including canceled debt in income and the exceptions to the general rule. Efile 7004 tax extension General Rule Generally, if your debt is canceled or forgiven, other than as a gift or bequest to you, you must include the canceled amount in your gross income for tax purposes. Efile 7004 tax extension Report the canceled amount on line 6 of Schedule C if you incurred the debt in your business. Efile 7004 tax extension If the debt is a nonbusiness debt, report the canceled amount on line 21 of Form 1040. Efile 7004 tax extension Exceptions The following discussion covers some exceptions to the general rule for canceled debt. Efile 7004 tax extension Price reduced after purchase. Efile 7004 tax extension   If you owe a debt to the seller for property you bought and the seller reduces the amount you owe, you generally do not have income from the reduction. Efile 7004 tax extension Unless you are bankrupt or insolvent, treat the amount of the reduction as a purchase price adjustment and reduce your basis in the property. Efile 7004 tax extension Deductible debt. Efile 7004 tax extension   You do not realize income from a canceled debt to the extent the payment of the debt would have led to a deduction. Efile 7004 tax extension Example. Efile 7004 tax extension You get accounting services for your business on credit. Efile 7004 tax extension Later, you have trouble paying your business debts, but you are not bankrupt or insolvent. Efile 7004 tax extension Your accountant forgives part of the amount you owe for the accounting services. Efile 7004 tax extension How you treat the canceled debt depends on your method of accounting. Efile 7004 tax extension Cash method — You do not include the canceled debt in income because payment of the debt would have been deductible as a business expense. Efile 7004 tax extension Accrual method — You include the canceled debt in income because the expense was deductible when you incurred the debt. Efile 7004 tax extension   For information on the cash and accrual methods of accounting, see chapter 2. Efile 7004 tax extension Exclusions Do not include canceled debt in income in the following situations. Efile 7004 tax extension However, you may be required to file Form 982, Reduction of Tax Attributes Due to Discharge of Indebtedness. Efile 7004 tax extension For more information, see Form 982. Efile 7004 tax extension The cancellation takes place in a bankruptcy case under title 11 of the U. Efile 7004 tax extension S. Efile 7004 tax extension Code (relating to bankruptcy). Efile 7004 tax extension See Publication 908, Bankruptcy Tax Guide. Efile 7004 tax extension The cancellation takes place when you are insolvent. Efile 7004 tax extension You can exclude the canceled debt to the extent you are insolvent. Efile 7004 tax extension See Publication 908. Efile 7004 tax extension The canceled debt is a qualified farm debt owed to a qualified person. Efile 7004 tax extension See chapter 3 in Publication 225, Farmer's Tax Guide. Efile 7004 tax extension The canceled debt is a qualified real property business debt. Efile 7004 tax extension This situation is explained later. Efile 7004 tax extension The canceled debt is qualified principal residence indebtedness which is discharged after 2006. Efile 7004 tax extension See Form 982. Efile 7004 tax extension If a canceled debt is excluded from income because it takes place in a bankruptcy case, the exclusions in situations 2 through 5 do not apply. Efile 7004 tax extension If it takes place when you are insolvent, the exclusions in situations 3 and 4 do not apply to the extent you are insolvent. Efile 7004 tax extension Debt. Efile 7004 tax extension   For purposes of this discussion, debt includes any debt for which you are liable or which attaches to property you hold. Efile 7004 tax extension Qualified real property business debt. Efile 7004 tax extension   You can elect to exclude (up to certain limits) the cancellation of qualified real property business debt. Efile 7004 tax extension If you make the election, you must reduce the basis of your depreciable real property by the amount excluded. Efile 7004 tax extension Make this reduction at the beginning of your tax year following the tax year in which the cancellation occurs. Efile 7004 tax extension However, if you dispose of the property before that time, you must reduce its basis immediately before the disposition. Efile 7004 tax extension Cancellation of qualified real property business debt. Efile 7004 tax extension   Qualified real property business debt is debt (other than qualified farm debt) that meets all the following conditions. Efile 7004 tax extension It was incurred or assumed in connection with real property used in a trade or business. Efile 7004 tax extension It was secured by such real property. Efile 7004 tax extension It was incurred or assumed at either of the following times. Efile 7004 tax extension Before January 1, 1993. Efile 7004 tax extension After December 31, 1992, if incurred or assumed to acquire, construct, or substantially improve the real property. Efile 7004 tax extension It is debt to which you choose to apply these rules. Efile 7004 tax extension   Qualified real property business debt includes refinancing of debt described in (3) earlier, but only to the extent it does not exceed the debt being refinanced. Efile 7004 tax extension   You cannot exclude more than either of the following amounts. Efile 7004 tax extension The excess (if any) of: The outstanding principal of qualified real property business debt (immediately before the cancellation), over The fair market value (immediately before the cancellation) of the business real property that is security for the debt, reduced by the outstanding principal amount of any other qualified real property business debt secured by this property immediately before the cancellation. Efile 7004 tax extension The total adjusted bases of depreciable real property held by you immediately before the cancellation. Efile 7004 tax extension These adjusted bases are determined after any basis reduction due to a cancellation in bankruptcy, insolvency, or of qualified farm debt. Efile 7004 tax extension Do not take into account depreciable real property acquired in contemplation of the cancellation. Efile 7004 tax extension Election. Efile 7004 tax extension   To make this election, complete Form 982 and attach it to your income tax return for the tax year in which the cancellation occurs. Efile 7004 tax extension You must file your return by the due date (including extensions). Efile 7004 tax extension If you timely filed your return for the year without making the election, you can still make the election by filing an amended return within 6 months of the due date of the return (excluding extensions). Efile 7004 tax extension For more information, see When To File in the form instructions. Efile 7004 tax extension Other Income The following discussion explains how to treat other types of business income you may receive. Efile 7004 tax extension Restricted property. Efile 7004 tax extension   Restricted property is property that has certain restrictions that affect its value. Efile 7004 tax extension If you receive restricted stock or other property for services performed, the fair market value of the property in excess of your cost is included in your income on Schedule C or C-EZ when the restriction is lifted. Efile 7004 tax extension However, you can choose to be taxed in the year you receive the property. Efile 7004 tax extension For more information on including restricted property in income, see Publication 525, Taxable and Nontaxable Income. Efile 7004 tax extension Gains and losses. Efile 7004 tax extension   Do not report on Schedule C or C-EZ a gain or loss from the disposition of property that is neither stock in trade nor held primarily for sale to customers. Efile 7004 tax extension Instead, you must report these gains and losses on other forms. Efile 7004 tax extension For more information, see chapter 3. Efile 7004 tax extension Promissory notes. Efile 7004 tax extension   Report promissory notes and other evidences of debt issued to you in a sale or exchange of property that is stock in trade or held primarily for sale to customers on Schedule C or C-EZ. Efile 7004 tax extension In general, you report them at their stated principal amount (minus any unstated interest) when you receive them. Efile 7004 tax extension Lost income payments. Efile 7004 tax extension   If you reduce or stop your business activities, report on Schedule C or C-EZ any payment you receive for the lost income of your business from insurance or other sources. Efile 7004 tax extension Report it on Schedule C or C-EZ even if your business is inactive when you receive the payment. Efile 7004 tax extension Damages. Efile 7004 tax extension   You must include in gross income compensation you receive during the tax year as a result of any of the following injuries connected with your business. Efile 7004 tax extension Patent infringement. Efile 7004 tax extension Breach of contract or fiduciary duty. Efile 7004 tax extension Antitrust injury. Efile 7004 tax extension Economic injury. Efile 7004 tax extension   You may be entitled to a deduction against the income if it compensates you for actual economic injury. Efile 7004 tax extension Your deduction is the smaller of the following amounts. Efile 7004 tax extension The amount you receive or accrue for damages in the tax year reduced by the amount you pay or incur in the tax year to recover that amount. Efile 7004 tax extension Your loss from the injury that you have not yet deducted. Efile 7004 tax extension Punitive damages. Efile 7004 tax extension   You must also include punitive damages in income. Efile 7004 tax extension Kickbacks. Efile 7004 tax extension   If you receive any kickbacks, include them in your income on Schedule C or C-EZ. Efile 7004 tax extension However, do not include them if you properly treat them as a reduction of a related expense item, a capital expenditure, or cost of goods sold. Efile 7004 tax extension Recovery of items previously deducted. Efile 7004 tax extension   If you recover a bad debt or any other item deducted in a previous year, include the recovery in income on Schedule C or C-EZ. Efile 7004 tax extension However, if all or part of the deduction in earlier years did not reduce your tax, you can exclude the part that did not reduce your tax. Efile 7004 tax extension If you exclude part of the recovery from income, you must include with your return a computation showing how you figured the exclusion. Efile 7004 tax extension Example. Efile 7004 tax extension Joe Smith, a sole proprietor, had gross income of $8,000, a bad debt deduction of $300, and other allowable deductions of $7,700. Efile 7004 tax extension He also had 2 personal exemptions for a total of $7,800. Efile 7004 tax extension He would not pay income tax even if he did not deduct the bad debt. Efile 7004 tax extension Therefore, he will not report as income any part of the $300 he may recover in any future year. Efile 7004 tax extension Exception for depreciation. Efile 7004 tax extension   This rule does not apply to depreciation. Efile 7004 tax extension You recover depreciation using the rules explained next. Efile 7004 tax extension Recapture of depreciation. Efile 7004 tax extension   In the following situations, you have to recapture the depreciation deduction. Efile 7004 tax extension This means you include in income part or all of the depreciation you deducted in previous years. Efile 7004 tax extension Listed property. Efile 7004 tax extension   If your business use of listed property (explained in chapter 8 under Depreciation ) falls to 50% or less in a tax year after the tax year you placed the property in service, you may have to recapture part of the depreciation deduction. Efile 7004 tax extension You do this by including in income on Schedule C part of the depreciation you deducted in previous years. Efile 7004 tax extension Use Part IV of Form 4797, Sales of Business Property, to figure the amount to include on Schedule C. Efile 7004 tax extension For more information, see What is the Business-Use Requirement? in chapter 5 of Publication 946, How To Depreciate Property. Efile 7004 tax extension That chapter explains how to determine whether property is used more than 50% in your business. Efile 7004 tax extension Section 179 property. Efile 7004 tax extension   If you take a section 179 deduction (explained in chapter 8 under Depreciation ) for an asset and before the end of the asset's recovery period the percentage of business use drops to 50% or less, you must recapture part of the section 179 deduction. Efile 7004 tax extension You do this by including in income on Schedule C part of the deduction you took. Efile 7004 tax extension Use Part IV of Form 4797 to figure the amount to include on Schedule C. Efile 7004 tax extension See chapter 2 in Publication 946 to find out when you recapture the deduction. Efile 7004 tax extension Sale or exchange of depreciable property. Efile 7004 tax extension   If you sell or exchange depreciable property at a gain, you may have to treat all or part of the gain due to depreciation as ordinary income. Efile 7004 tax extension You figure the income due to depreciation recapture in Part III of Form 4797. Efile 7004 tax extension For more information, see chapter 4 in Publication 544, Sales and Other Dispositions of Assets. Efile 7004 tax extension Items That Are Not Income In some cases the property or money you receive is not income. Efile 7004 tax extension Appreciation. Efile 7004 tax extension   Increases in value of your property are not income until you realize the increases through a sale or other taxable disposition. Efile 7004 tax extension Consignments. Efile 7004 tax extension   Consignments of merchandise to others to sell for you are not sales. Efile 7004 tax extension The title of merchandise remains with you, the consignor, even after the consignee possesses the merchandise. Efile 7004 tax extension Therefore, if you ship goods on consignment, you have no profit or loss until the consignee sells the merchandise. Efile 7004 tax extension Merchandise you have shipped out on consignment is included in your inventory until it is sold. Efile 7004 tax extension   Do not include merchandise you receive on consignment in your inventory.

Efile 7004 tax extension For more information, see Trade discounts in chapter 6. Efile 7004 tax extension Payment placed in escrow. Efile 7004 tax extension   If the buyer of your property places part or all of the purchase price in escrow, you do not include any part of it in gross sales until you actually or constructively receive it. Efile 7004 tax extension However, upon completion of the terms of the contract and the escrow agreement, you will have taxable income, even if you do not accept the money until the next year. Efile 7004 tax extension Sales returns and allowances. Efile 7004 tax extension   Credits you allow customers for returned merchandise and any other allowances you make on sales are deductions from gross sales in figuring net sales. Efile 7004 tax extension Advance payments. Efile 7004 tax extension   Special rules dealing with an accrual method of accounting for payments received in advance are discussed in chapter 2 under Accrual Method. Efile 7004 tax extension Insurance proceeds. Efile 7004 tax extension   If you receive insurance or another type of reimbursement for a casualty or theft loss, you must subtract it from the loss when you figure your deduction. Efile 7004 tax extension You cannot deduct the reimbursed part of a casualty or theft loss.
