Ez form 2014   The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 (COBRA) provides certain former employees, retirees, spouses, former spouses, and dependent children the right to temporary continuation of health coverage at group rates. Ez form 2014 COBRA generally covers multiemployer health plans and health plans maintained by private-sector employers (other than churches) with 20 or more full and part-time employees. Ez form 2014 Parallel requirements apply to these plans under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). Ez form 2014 Under the Public Health Service Act, COBRA requirements apply also to health plans covering state or local government employees. Ez form 2014 Similar requirements apply under the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program and under some state laws. Ez form 2014 For the premium assistance (or subsidy) discussed below, these requirements are all referred to as COBRA requirements. Ez form 2014   Under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), employers are allowed a credit against “payroll taxes” (referred to in this publication as “employment taxes”) for providing COBRA premium assistance to assistance eligible individuals. Ez form 2014 For periods of COBRA continuation coverage beginning after February 16, 2009, a group health plan must treat an assistance eligible individual as having paid the required COBRA continuation coverage premium if the individual elects COBRA coverage and pays 35% of the amount of the premium. Ez form 2014   An assistance eligible individual is a qualified beneficiary of an employer's group health plan who is eligible for COBRA continuation coverage during the period beginning September 1, 2008, and ending May 31, 2010, due to the involuntarily termination from employment of a covered employee during the period and elects continuation COBRA coverage. Ez form 2014 The assistance for the coverage can last up to 15 months. Ez form 2014   Employees terminated during the period beginning September 1, 2008, and ending May 31, 2010, who received a severance package that delayed the start of the COBRA continuation coverage, may still be eligible for premium assistance for COBRA continuation coverage. Ez form 2014 For more information see Notice 2009-27, 2009-16 I. Ez form 2014 R. Ez form 2014 B. Ez form 2014 838, available at www. Ez form 2014 irs. Ez form 2014 gov/irb/2009-16_irb/ar09. Ez form 2014 html. Ez form 2014   Administrators of the group health plans (or other entities) that provide or administer COBRA continuation coverage must provide notice to assistance eligible individuals of the COBRA premium assistance. Ez form 2014   The 65% of the premium not paid by the assistance eligible individuals is reimbursed to the employer maintaining the group health plan. Ez form 2014 The reimbursement is made through a credit against the employer's employment tax liabilities. Ez form 2014 For information on how to claim the credit, see the Instructions for Form 941 or the Instructions for Form 944. Ez form 2014 The credit is treated as a deposit made on the first day of the return period (quarter or year). Ez form 2014 In the case of a multiemployer plan, the credit is claimed by the plan, rather than the employer. Ez form 2014 In the case of an insured plan subject to state law continuation coverage requirements, the credit is claimed by the insurance company, rather than the employer. Ez form 2014   Anyone claiming the credit for COBRA premium assistance payments must maintain the following information to support their claim, including the following. Ez form 2014 Information on the receipt of the assistance eligible individuals' 35% share of the premium, including dates and amounts. Ez form 2014 In the case of an insurance plan, a copy of invoice or other supporting statement from the insurance carrier and proof of timely payment of the full premium to the insurance carrier required under COBRA. Ez form 2014 In the case of a self-insured plan, proof of the premium amount and proof of the coverage provided to the assistance eligible individuals. Ez form 2014 Attestation of involuntary termination, including the date of the involuntary termination for each covered employee whose involuntary termination is the basis for eligibility for the subsidy. Ez form 2014 Proof of each assistance eligible individual's eligibility for COBRA coverage and the election of COBRA coverage. Ez form 2014 A record of the SSNs of all covered employees, the amount of the subsidy reimbursed with respect to each covered employee, and whether the subsidy was for one individual or two or more individuals.

Ez form 2014 Introduction When you dispose of property used in your farm business, your taxable gain or loss is usually treated as ordinary income (which is taxed at the same rates as wages and interest income) or capital gain (which is generally taxed at lower rates) under the rules for section 1231 transactions. Ez form 2014 When you dispose of depreciable property (section 1245 property or section 1250 property) at a gain, you may have to recognize all or part of the gain as ordinary income under the depreciation recapture rules. Ez form 2014 Any gain remaining after applying the depreciation recapture rules is a section 1231 gain, which may be taxed as a capital gain. Ez form 2014 Gains and losses from property used in farming are reported on Form 4797, Sales of Business Property. Ez form 2014 Table 9-1 contains examples of items reported on Form 4797 and refers to the part of that form on which they first should be reported. Ez form 2014 Topics - This chapter discusses: Section 1231 gains and losses Depreciation recapture Other gains Useful Items - You may want to see: Publication 544 Sales and Other Dispositions of Assets Form (and Instructions) 4797 Sales of Business Property See chapter 16 for information about getting publications and forms. Ez form 2014 Section 1231 Gains and Losses Section 1231 gains and losses are the taxable gains and losses from section 1231 transactions (explained below). Ez form 2014 Their treatment as ordinary or capital gains depends on whether you have a net gain or a net loss from all of your section 1231 transactions in the tax year. Ez form 2014 Table 9-1.

Ez form 2014   or more   a Sold at a gain Part II Part III (1245)   b Sold at a loss Part II Part I   c Raised livestock sold at a gain Part II Part I If you have a gain from a section 1231 transaction, first determine whether any of the gain is ordinary income under the depreciation recapture rules (explained later). Ez form 2014 Do not take that gain into account as section 1231 gain. Ez form 2014 Section 1231 transactions. Ez form 2014   Gain or loss on the following transactions is subject to section 1231 treatment. Ez form 2014 Sale or exchange of cattle and horses. Ez form 2014 The cattle and horses must be held for draft, breeding, dairy, or sporting purposes and held for 24 months or longer. Ez form 2014 Sale or exchange of other livestock. Ez form 2014 This livestock must be held for draft, breeding, dairy, or sporting purposes and held for 12 months or longer. Ez form 2014 Other livestock includes hogs, mules, sheep, goats, donkeys, and other fur-bearing animals. Ez form 2014 Other livestock does not include poultry. Ez form 2014 Sale or exchange of depreciable personal property. Ez form 2014 This property must be used in your business and held longer than 1 year. Ez form 2014 Generally, property held for the production of rents or royalties is considered to be used in a trade or business. Ez form 2014 Examples of depreciable personal property include farm machinery and trucks. Ez form 2014 It also includes amortizable section 197 intangibles. Ez form 2014 Sale or exchange of real estate. Ez form 2014 This property must be used in your business and held longer than 1 year. Ez form 2014 Examples are your farm or ranch (including barns and sheds). Ez form 2014 Sale or exchange of unharvested crops. Ez form 2014 The crop and land must be sold, exchanged, or involuntarily converted at the same time and to the same person, and the land must have been held longer than 1 year. Ez form 2014 You cannot keep any right or option to reacquire the land directly or indirectly (other than a right customarily incident to a mortgage or other security transaction). Ez form 2014 Growing crops sold with a leasehold on the land, even if sold to the same person in a single transaction, are not included. Ez form 2014 Distributive share of partnership gains and losses. Ez form 2014 Your distributive share must be from the sale or exchange of property listed above and held longer than 1 year (or for the required period for certain livestock). Ez form 2014 Cutting or disposal of timber. Ez form 2014 Special rules apply if you owned the timber longer than 1 year and elect to treat timber cutting as a sale or exchange, or you enter into a cutting contract, as described in chapter 8 under Timber . Ez form 2014 Condemnation. Ez form 2014 The condemned property (defined in chapter 11) must have been held longer than 1 year. Ez form 2014 It must be business property or a capital asset held in connection with a trade or business or a transaction entered into for profit, such as investment property. Ez form 2014 It cannot be property held for personal use. Ez form 2014 Casualty or theft. Ez form 2014 The casualty or theft must have affected business property, property held for the production of rents or royalties, or investment property (such as notes and bonds). Ez form 2014 You must have held the property longer than 1 year. Ez form 2014 However, if your casualty or theft losses are more than your casualty or theft gains, neither the gains nor the losses are taken into account in the section 1231 computation. Ez form 2014 Section 1231 does not apply to personal casualty gains and losses. Ez form 2014 See chapter 11 for information on how to treat those gains and losses. Ez form 2014 If the property is not held for the required holding period, the transaction is not subject to section 1231 treatment, and any gain or loss is ordinary income reported in Part II of Form 4797. Ez form 2014 See Table 9-1. Ez form 2014 Property for sale to customers. Ez form 2014   A sale, exchange, or involuntary conversion of property held mainly for sale to customers is not a section 1231 transaction. Ez form 2014 If you will get back all, or nearly all, of your investment in the property by selling it rather than by using it up in your business, it is property held mainly for sale to customers. Ez form 2014 Treatment as ordinary or capital. Ez form 2014   To determine the treatment of section 1231 gains and losses, combine all of your section 1231 gains and losses for the year. Ez form 2014 If you have a net section 1231 loss, it is an ordinary loss. Ez form 2014 If you have a net section 1231 gain, it is ordinary income up to your nonrecaptured section 1231 losses from previous years, explained next. Ez form 2014 The rest, if any, is long-term capital gain. Ez form 2014 Nonrecaptured section 1231 losses. Ez form 2014   Your nonrecaptured section 1231 losses are your net section 1231 losses for the previous 5 years that have not been applied against a net section 1231 gain by treating the gain as ordinary income. Ez form 2014 These losses are applied against your net section 1231 gain beginning with the earliest loss in the 5-year period. Ez form 2014 Example. Ez form 2014 In 2013, Ben has a $2,000 net section 1231 gain. Ez form 2014 To figure how much he has to report as ordinary income and long-term capital gain, he must first determine his section 1231 gains and losses from the previous 5-year period. Ez form 2014 From 2008 through 2012 he had the following section 1231 gains and losses. Ez form 2014 Year Amount 2008 -0- 2009 -0- 2010 ($2,500) 2011 -0- 2012 $1,800   Ben uses this information to figure how to report his net section 1231 gain for 2013 as shown below. Ez form 2014 1) Net section 1231 gain (2013) $2,000 2) Net section 1231 loss (2010) ($2,500)   3) Net section 1231 gain (2012) 1,800   4) Remaining net section 1231 loss from prior 5 years ($700)   5) Gain treated as  ordinary income $700 6) Gain treated as long-term  capital gain $1,300 His remaining net section 1231 loss from 2010 is completely recaptured in 2013. Ez form 2014 Depreciation Recapture If you dispose of depreciable or amortizable property at a gain, you may have to treat all or part of the gain (even if it is otherwise nontaxable) as ordinary income. Ez form 2014 To figure any gain that must be reported as ordinary income, you must keep permanent records of the facts necessary to figure the depreciation or amortization allowed or allowable on your property. Ez form 2014 For more information, see chapter 3 of Publication 544. Ez form 2014 Section 1245 Property A gain on the disposition of section 1245 property is treated as ordinary income to the extent of depreciation allowed or allowable. Ez form 2014 Any recognized gain that is more than the part that is ordinary income is a section 1231 gain. Ez form 2014 See Treatment as ordinary or capital under Section 1231 Gains and Losses , earlier. Ez form 2014 Section 1245 property includes any property that is or has been subject to an allowance for depreciation or amortization and that is any of the following types of property. Ez form 2014 Personal property (either tangible or intangible). Ez form 2014 Other tangible property (except buildings and their structural components) used as any of the following. Ez form 2014 See Buildings and structural components below. Ez form 2014 An integral part of manufacturing, production, or extraction, or of furnishing certain services. Ez form 2014 A research facility in any of the activities in (a). Ez form 2014 A facility in any of the activities in (a) above, for the bulk storage of fungible commodities (discussed later). Ez form 2014 That part of real property (not included in (2)) with an adjusted basis reduced by (but not limited to) the following. Ez form 2014 Amortization of certified pollution control facilities. Ez form 2014 The section 179 expense deduction. Ez form 2014 Deduction for clean-fuel vehicles and certain refueling property. Ez form 2014 Expenditures to remove architectural and transportation barriers to the handicapped and elderly. Ez form 2014 Certain reforestation expenditures (as described under Reforestation Costs in chapter 7. Ez form 2014 Single purpose agricultural (livestock) or horticultural structures. Ez form 2014 Storage facilities (except buildings and their structural components) used in distributing petroleum or any primary product of petroleum. Ez form 2014 Buildings and structural components. Ez form 2014   Section 1245 property does not include buildings and structural components. Ez form 2014 The term building includes a house, barn, warehouse, or garage. Ez form 2014 The term structural component includes walls, floors, windows, doors, central air conditioning systems, light fixtures, etc. Ez form 2014   Do not treat a structure that is essentially machinery or equipment as a building or structural component. Ez form 2014 Also, do not treat a structure that houses property used as an integral part of an activity as a building or structural component if the structure's use is so closely related to the property's use that the structure can be expected to be replaced when the property it initially houses is replaced. Ez form 2014   The fact that the structure is specially designed to withstand the stress and other demands of the property and cannot be used economically for other purposes indicates it is closely related to the use of the property it houses. Ez form 2014 Structures such as oil and gas storage tanks, grain storage bins, and silos are not treated as buildings, but as section 1245 property. Ez form 2014 Facility for bulk storage of fungible commodities. Ez form 2014   This is a facility used mainly for the bulk storage of fungible commodities. Ez form 2014 Bulk storage means storage of a commodity in a large mass before it is used. Ez form 2014 For example, if a facility is used to store oranges that have been sorted and boxed, it is not used for bulk storage. Ez form 2014 To be fungible, a commodity must be such that one part may be used in place of another. Ez form 2014 Gain Treated as Ordinary Income The gain treated as ordinary income on the sale, exchange, or involuntary conversion of section 1245 property, including a sale and leaseback transaction, is the lesser of the following amounts. Ez form 2014 The depreciation (which includes any section 179 deduction claimed) and amortization allowed or allowable on the property. Ez form 2014 The gain realized on the disposition (the amount realized from the disposition minus the adjusted basis of the property). Ez form 2014 For any other disposition of section 1245 property, ordinary income is the lesser of (1) above or the amount by which its fair market value (FMV) is more than its adjusted basis. Ez form 2014 For details, see chapter 3 of Publication 544. Ez form 2014 Use Part III of Form 4797 to figure the ordinary income part of the gain. Ez form 2014 Depreciation claimed on other property or claimed by other taxpayers. Ez form 2014   Depreciation and amortization include the amounts you claimed on the section 1245 property as well as the following depreciation and amortization amounts. Ez form 2014 Amounts you claimed on property you exchanged for, or converted to, your section 1245 property in a like-kind exchange or involuntary conversion. Ez form 2014 For details on exchanges of property that are not taxable, see Like-Kind Exchanges in chapter 8. Ez form 2014 Amounts a previous owner of the section 1245 property claimed if your basis is determined with reference to that person's adjusted basis (for example, the donor's depreciation deductions on property you received as a gift and part of the transfer is a sale or exchange). Ez form 2014 Example. Ez form 2014 Jeff Free paid $120,000 for a tractor in 2012. Ez form 2014 On February 23, 2013, he traded it for a chopper and paid an additional $30,000. Ez form 2014 To figure his depreciation deduction on the chopper for the current year, Jeff continues to use the basis of the tractor as he would have before the trade. Ez form 2014 Jeff can also depreciate the additional $30,000 for the chopper. Ez form 2014 Depreciation and amortization. Ez form 2014   Depreciation and amortization deductions that must be recaptured as ordinary income include (but are not limited to) the following items. Ez form 2014 See Depreciation Recapture in chapter 3 of Publication 544 for more details. Ez form 2014 Ordinary depreciation deductions. Ez form 2014 Section 179 deduction (see chapter 7). Ez form 2014 Any special depreciation allowance. Ez form 2014 Amortization deductions for all the following costs. Ez form 2014 Acquiring a lease. Ez form 2014 Lessee improvements. Ez form 2014 Pollution control facilities. Ez form 2014 Reforestation expenses. Ez form 2014 Section 197 intangibles. Ez form 2014 Qualified disaster expenses. Ez form 2014 Franchises, trademarks, and trade names acquired before August 11, 1993. Ez form 2014 Example. Ez form 2014 You file your returns on a calendar year basis. Ez form 2014 In February 2011, you bought and placed in service for 100% use in your farming business a light-duty truck (5-year property) that cost $10,000. Ez form 2014 You used the half-year convention and your MACRS deductions for the truck were $1,500 in 2011 and $2,550 in 2012. Ez form 2014 You did not claim the section 179 expense deduction for the truck. Ez form 2014 You sold it in May 2013 for $7,000. Ez form 2014 The MACRS deduction in 2013, the year of sale, is $893 (½ of $1,785). Ez form 2014 Figure the gain treated as ordinary income as follows. Ez form 2014 1) Amount realized $7,000 2) Cost (February 2011) $10,000   3) Depreciation allowed or allowable (MACRS deductions: $1,500 + $2,550 + $893) 4,943   4) Adjusted basis (subtract line 3 from line 2) $5,057 5) Gain realized (subtract line 4 from line 1) 1,943 6) Gain treated as ordinary income (lesser of line 3 or line 5) $1,943 Depreciation allowed or allowable. Ez form 2014   You generally use the greater of the depreciation allowed or allowable when figuring the part of gain to report as ordinary income. Ez form 2014 If, in prior years, you have consistently taken proper deductions under one method, the amount allowed for your prior years will not be increased even though a greater amount would have been allowed under another proper method. Ez form 2014 If you did not take any deduction at all for depreciation, your adjustments to basis for depreciation allowable are figured by using the straight line method. Ez form 2014 This treatment applies only when figuring what part of the gain is treated as ordinary income under the rules for section 1245 depreciation recapture. Ez form 2014 Disposition of plants and animals. Ez form 2014   If you elect not to use the uniform capitalization rules (see chapter 6), you must treat any plant you produce as section 1245 property. Ez form 2014 If you have a gain on the property's disposition, you must recapture the pre-productive expenses you would have capitalized if you had not made the election by treating the gain, up to the amount of these expenses, as ordinary income. Ez form 2014 For section 1231 transactions, show these expenses as depreciation on Form 4797, Part III, line 22. Ez form 2014 For plant sales that are reported on Schedule F (1040), Profit or Loss From Farming, this recapture rule does not change the reporting of income because the gain is already ordinary income. Ez form 2014 You can use the farm-price method or the unit-livestock-price method discussed in  chapter 2 to figure these expenses. Ez form 2014 Example. Ez form 2014 Janet Maple sold her apple orchard in 2013 for $80,000. Ez form 2014 Her adjusted basis at the time of sale was $60,000. Ez form 2014 She bought the orchard in 2006, but the trees did not produce a crop until 2009. Ez form 2014 Her pre-productive expenses were $6,000. Ez form 2014 She elected not to use the uniform capitalization rules. Ez form 2014 Janet must treat $6,000 of the gain as ordinary income. Ez form 2014 Section 1250 Property Section 1250 property includes all real property subject to an allowance for depreciation that is not and never has been section 1245 property. Ez form 2014 It includes buildings and structural components that are not section 1245 property (discussed earlier). Ez form 2014 It includes a leasehold of land or section 1250 property subject to an allowance for depreciation. Ez form 2014 A fee simple interest in land is not section 1250 property because, like land, it is not depreciable. Ez form 2014 Gain on the disposition of section 1250 property is treated as ordinary income to the extent of additional depreciation allowed or allowable. Ez form 2014 To determine the additional depreciation on section 1250 property, see Depreciation Recapture in chapter 3 of Publication 544. Ez form 2014 You will not have additional depreciation if any of the following apply to the property disposed of. Ez form 2014 You figured depreciation for the property using the straight line method or any other method that does not result in depreciation that is more than the amount figured by the straight line method and you have held the property longer than 1 year. Ez form 2014 You chose the alternate ACRS (straight line) method for the property, which was a type of 15-, 18-, or 19-year real property covered by the section 1250 rules. Ez form 2014 The property was nonresidential real property placed in service after 1986 (or after July 31, 1986, if the choice to use MACRS was made) and you held it longer than 1 year. Ez form 2014 These properties are depreciated using the straight line method. Ez form 2014 Installment Sale If you report the sale of property under the installment method, any depreciation recapture under section 1245 or 1250 is taxable as ordinary income in the year of sale. Ez form 2014 This applies even if no payments are received in that year. Ez form 2014 If the gain is more than the depreciation recapture income, report the rest of the gain using the rules of the installment method. Ez form 2014 For this purpose, include the recapture income in your installment sale basis to determine your gross profit on the installment sale. Ez form 2014 If you dispose of more than one asset in a single transaction, you must separately figure the gain on each asset so that it may be properly reported. Ez form 2014 To do this, allocate the selling price and the payments you receive in the year of sale to each asset. Ez form 2014 Report any depreciation recapture income in the year of sale before using the installment method for any remaining gain. Ez form 2014 For more information on installment sales, see chapter 10. Ez form 2014 Other Dispositions Chapter 3 of Publication 544 discusses the tax treatment of the following transfers of depreciable property. Ez form 2014 By gift. Ez form 2014 At death. Ez form 2014 In like-kind exchanges. Ez form 2014 In involuntary conversions. Ez form 2014 Publication 544 also explains how to handle a single transaction involving multiple properties. Ez form 2014 Other Gains This section discusses gain on the disposition of farmland for which you were allowed either of the following. Ez form 2014 Deductions for soil and water conservation expenditures (section 1252 property). Ez form 2014 Exclusions from income for certain cost sharing payments (section 1255 property). Ez form 2014 Section 1252 property. Ez form 2014   If you disposed of farmland you held more than 1 year and less than 10 years at a gain and you were allowed deductions for soil and water conservation expenses for the land, as discussed in chapter 5, you must treat part of the gain as ordinary income and treat the balance as section 1231 gain. Ez form 2014 Exceptions. Ez form 2014   Do not treat gain on the following transactions as gain on section 1252 property. Ez form 2014 Disposition of farmland by gift. Ez form 2014 Transfer of farm property at death (except for income in respect of a decedent). Ez form 2014 For more information, see Regulations section 1. Ez form 2014 1252-2. Ez form 2014 Amount to report as ordinary income. Ez form 2014   You report as ordinary income the lesser of the following amounts. Ez form 2014 Your gain (determined by subtracting the adjusted basis from the amount realized from a sale, exchange, or involuntary conversion, or the FMV for all other dispositions). Ez form 2014 The total deductions allowed for soil and water conservation expenses multiplied by the applicable percentage, discussed next. Ez form 2014 Applicable percentage. Ez form 2014   The applicable percentage is based on the length of time you held the land. Ez form 2014 If you dispose of your farmland within 5 years after the date you acquired it, the percentage is 100%. Ez form 2014 If you dispose of the land within the 6th through 9th year after you acquired it, the applicable percentage is reduced by 20% a year for each year or part of a year you hold the land after the 5th year. Ez form 2014 If you dispose of the land 10 or more years after you acquired it, the percentage is 0%, and the entire gain is a section 1231 gain. Ez form 2014 Example. Ez form 2014 You acquired farmland on January 19, 2005. Ez form 2014 On October 3, 2013, you sold the land at a $30,000 gain. Ez form 2014 Between January 1 and October 3, 2013, you incur soil and water conservation expenditures of $15,000 for the land that are fully deductible in 2013. Ez form 2014 The applicable percentage is 40% since you sold the land within the 8th year after you acquired it. Ez form 2014 You treat $6,000 (40% of $15,000) of the $30,000 gain as ordinary income and the $24,000 balance as a section 1231 gain. Ez form 2014 Section 1255 property. Ez form 2014   If you receive certain cost-sharing payments on property and you exclude those payments from income (as discussed in chapter 3), you may have to treat part of any gain as ordinary income and treat the balance as a section 1231 gain. Ez form 2014 If you chose not to exclude these payments, you will not have to recognize ordinary income under this provision. Ez form 2014 Amount to report as ordinary income. Ez form 2014   You report as ordinary income the lesser of the following amounts. Ez form 2014 The applicable percentage of the total excluded cost-sharing payments. Ez form 2014 The gain on the disposition of the property. Ez form 2014 You do not report ordinary income under this rule to the extent the gain is recognized as ordinary income under sections 1231 through 1254, 1256, and 1257. Ez form 2014 However, if applicable, gain reported under this rule must be reported regardless of any contrary provisions (including nonrecognition provisions) under any other section. Ez form 2014 Applicable percentage. Ez form 2014   The applicable percentage of the excluded cost-sharing payments to be reported as ordinary income is based on the length of time you hold the property after receiving the payments. Ez form 2014 If the property is held less than 10 years after you receive the payments, the percentage is 100%. Ez form 2014 After 10 years, the percentage is reduced by 10% a year, or part of a year, until the rate is 0%. Ez form 2014 Form 4797, Part III. Ez form 2014   Use Form 4797, Part III, to figure the ordinary income part of a gain from the sale, exchange, or involuntary conversion of section 1252 property and section 1255 property.
