Federal tax forms 2007 Accounting method. Federal tax forms 2007   The rules discussed in this chapter assume you use the cash method of accounting. Federal tax forms 2007 Under the cash method, you generally include an item of income in gross income in the year you receive it. Federal tax forms 2007 See Cash Method in chapter 2. Federal tax forms 2007   If you use an accrual method of accounting, different rules may apply to your situation. Federal tax forms 2007 See Accrual Method in chapter 2.

Federal tax forms 2007 Schedule F (Form 1040) Individuals, trusts, and partnerships report farm income on Schedule F (Form 1040), Profit or Loss From Farming. Federal tax forms 2007 Use this schedule to figure the net profit or loss from regular farming operations. Federal tax forms 2007 Income from farming reported on Schedule F includes amounts you receive from cultivating, operating, or managing a farm for gain or profit, either as owner or tenant. Federal tax forms 2007 This includes income from operating a stock, dairy, poultry, fish, fruit, or truck farm and income from operating a plantation, ranch, range, or orchard. Federal tax forms 2007 It also includes income from the sale of crop shares if you materially participate in producing the crop. Federal tax forms 2007 See Rents (Including Crop Shares) , later. Federal tax forms 2007 Income received from operating a nursery, which specializes in growing ornamental plants, is considered to be income from farming. Federal tax forms 2007 Income reported on Schedule F does not include gains or losses from sales or other dispositions of the following farm assets. Federal tax forms 2007 Land. Federal tax forms 2007 Depreciable farm equipment. Federal tax forms 2007 Buildings and structures. Federal tax forms 2007 Livestock held for draft, breeding, sport, or dairy purposes. Federal tax forms 2007 Gains and losses from most dispositions of farm assets are discussed in chapters 8 and 9. Federal tax forms 2007 Gains and losses from casualties, thefts, and condemnations are discussed in chapter 11. Federal tax forms 2007 Sales of Farm Products Where to report. Federal tax forms 2007    Table 3-1 shows where to report the sale of farm products on your tax return. Federal tax forms 2007 Schedule F. Federal tax forms 2007   Amounts received from the sales of products you raised on your farm for sale (or bought for resale), such as livestock, produce, or grains, are reported on Schedule F. Federal tax forms 2007 This includes money and the fair market value of any property or services you receive. Federal tax forms 2007 When you sell farm products bought for resale, your profit or loss is the difference between your selling price (money plus the fair market value of any property) and your basis in the item (usually the cost). Federal tax forms 2007 See chapter 6 for information on the basis of assets. Federal tax forms 2007 You generally report these amounts on Schedule F for the year you receive payment. Federal tax forms 2007 Example. Federal tax forms 2007 In 2012, you bought 20 feeder calves for $11,000 for resale. Federal tax forms 2007 You sold them in 2013 for $21,000. Federal tax forms 2007 You report the $21,000 sales price on Schedule F, line 1b, subtract your $11,000 basis on line 1d, and report the resulting $10,000 profit on line 1e. Federal tax forms 2007 Form 4797. Federal tax forms 2007   Sales of livestock held for draft, breeding, sport, or dairy purposes may result in ordinary or capital gains or losses, depending on the circumstances. Federal tax forms 2007 In either case, you should always report these sales on Form 4797 instead of Schedule F. Federal tax forms 2007 See Livestock under Ordinary or Capital Gain or Loss in chapter 8. Federal tax forms 2007 Animals you do not hold primarily for sale are considered business assets of your farm. Federal tax forms 2007 Table 3-1. Federal tax forms 2007 Where To Report Sales of Farm Products Item Sold Schedule F Form 4797 Farm products raised for sale X   Farm products bought for resale X   Farm assets not held primarily for sale, such as livestock held for draft, breeding, sport, or dairy purposes (bought or raised)   X Sale by agent. Federal tax forms 2007   If your agent sells your farm products, you have constructive receipt of the income when your agent receives payment and you must include the net proceeds from the sale in gross income for the year the agent receives payment. Federal tax forms 2007 This applies even if your agent pays you in a later year. Federal tax forms 2007 For a discussion on constructive receipt of income, see Cash Method under Accounting Methods in chapter 2. Federal tax forms 2007 Sales Caused by Weather-Related Conditions If you sell or exchange more livestock, including poultry, than you normally would in a year because of a drought, flood, or other weather-related condition, you may be able to postpone reporting the gain from the additional animals until the next year. Federal tax forms 2007 You must meet all the following conditions to qualify. Federal tax forms 2007 Your principal trade or business is farming. Federal tax forms 2007 You use the cash method of accounting. Federal tax forms 2007 You can show that, under your usual business practices, you would not have sold or exchanged the additional animals this year except for the weather-related condition. Federal tax forms 2007 The weather-related condition caused an area to be designated as eligible for assistance by the federal government. Federal tax forms 2007 Sales or exchanges made before an area became eligible for federal assistance qualify if the weather-related condition that caused the sale or exchange also caused the area to be designated as eligible for federal assistance. Federal tax forms 2007 The designation can be made by the President, the Department of Agriculture (or any of its agencies), or by other federal departments or agencies. Federal tax forms 2007 A weather-related sale or exchange of livestock (other than poultry) held for draft, breeding, or dairy purposes may be an involuntary conversion. Federal tax forms 2007 See Other Involuntary Conversions in chapter 11. Federal tax forms 2007 Usual business practice. Federal tax forms 2007   You must determine the number of animals you would have sold had you followed your usual business practice in the absence of the weather-related condition. Federal tax forms 2007 Do this by considering all the facts and circumstances, but do not take into account your sales in any earlier year for which you postponed the gain. Federal tax forms 2007 If you have not yet established a usual business practice, rely on the usual business practices of similarly situated farmers in your general region. Federal tax forms 2007 Connection with affected area. Federal tax forms 2007   The livestock does not have to be raised or sold in an area affected by a weather-related condition for the postponement to apply. Federal tax forms 2007 However, the sale must occur solely because of a weather-related condition that affected the water, grazing, or other requirements of the livestock. Federal tax forms 2007 This requirement generally will not be met if the costs of feed, water, or other requirements of the livestock affected by the weather-related condition are not substantial in relation to the total costs of holding the livestock. Federal tax forms 2007 Classes of livestock. Federal tax forms 2007   You must figure the amount to be postponed separately for each generic class of animals—for example, hogs, sheep, and cattle. Federal tax forms 2007 Do not separate animals into classes based on age, sex, or breed. Federal tax forms 2007 Amount to be postponed. Federal tax forms 2007   Follow these steps to figure the amount of gain to be postponed for each class of animals. Federal tax forms 2007 Divide the total income realized from the sale of all livestock in the class during the tax year by the total number of such livestock sold. Federal tax forms 2007 For this purpose, do not treat any postponed gain from the previous year as income received from the sale of livestock. Federal tax forms 2007 Multiply the result in (1) by the excess number of such livestock sold solely because of weather-related conditions. Federal tax forms 2007 Example. Federal tax forms 2007 You are a calendar year taxpayer and you normally sell 100 head of beef cattle a year. Federal tax forms 2007 As a result of drought, you sold 135 head during 2012. Federal tax forms 2007 You realized $70,200 from the sale. Federal tax forms 2007 On August 9, 2012, as a result of drought, the affected area was declared a disaster area eligible for federal assistance. Federal tax forms 2007 The income you can postpone until 2013 is $18,200 [($70,200 ÷ 135) × 35]. Federal tax forms 2007 How to postpone gain. Federal tax forms 2007   To postpone gain, attach a statement to your tax return for the year of the sale. Federal tax forms 2007 The statement must include your name and address and give the following information for each class of livestock for which you are postponing gain. Federal tax forms 2007 A statement that you are postponing gain under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) section 451(e). Federal tax forms 2007 Evidence of the weather-related conditions that forced the early sale or exchange of the livestock and the date, if known, on which an area was designated as eligible for assistance by the federal government because of weather-related conditions. Federal tax forms 2007 A statement explaining the relationship of the area affected by the weather-related condition to your early sale or exchange of the livestock. Federal tax forms 2007 The number of animals sold in each of the 3 preceding years. Federal tax forms 2007 The number of animals you would have sold in the tax year had you followed your normal business practice in the absence of weather-related conditions. Federal tax forms 2007 The total number of animals sold and the number sold because of weather-related conditions during the tax year. Federal tax forms 2007 A computation, as described above, of the income to be postponed for each class of livestock. Federal tax forms 2007   Generally, you must file the statement and the return by the due date of the return, including extensions. Federal tax forms 2007 However, for sales or exchanges treated as an involuntary conversion from weather-related sales of livestock in an area eligible for federal assistance (discussed in chapter 11), you can file this statement at any time during the replacement period. Federal tax forms 2007 For other sales or exchanges, if you timely filed your return for the year without postponing gain, you can still postpone gain by filing an amended return within 6 months of the due date of the return (excluding extensions). Federal tax forms 2007 Attach the statement to the amended return and write “Filed pursuant to section 301. Federal tax forms 2007 9100-2” at the top of the amended return. Federal tax forms 2007 File the amended return at the same address you filed the original return. Federal tax forms 2007 Once you have filed the statement, you can cancel your postponement of gain only with the approval of the IRS. Federal tax forms 2007 Rents (Including Crop Shares) The rent you receive for the use of your farmland is generally rental income, not farm income. Federal tax forms 2007 However, if you materially participate in farming operations on the land, the rent is farm income. Federal tax forms 2007 See Landlord Participation in Farming in chapter 12. Federal tax forms 2007 Pasture income and rental. Federal tax forms 2007   If you pasture someone else's livestock and take care of them for a fee, the income is from your farming business. Federal tax forms 2007 You must enter it as Other income on Schedule F. Federal tax forms 2007 If you simply rent your pasture for a flat cash amount without providing services, report the income as rent on Part I of Schedule E (Form 1040), Supplemental Income and Loss. Federal tax forms 2007 Crop Shares You must include rent you receive in the form of crop shares in income in the year you convert the shares to money or the equivalent of money. Federal tax forms 2007 It does not matter whether you use the cash method of accounting or an accrual method of accounting. Federal tax forms 2007 If you materially participate in operating a farm from which you receive rent in the form of crop shares or livestock, the rental income is included in self-employment income. Federal tax forms 2007 See Landlord Participation in Farming in chapter 12. Federal tax forms 2007 Report the rental income on Schedule F. Federal tax forms 2007 If you do not materially participate in operating the farm, report this income on Form 4835 and carry the net income or loss to Schedule E (Form 1040). Federal tax forms 2007 The income is not included in self-employment income. Federal tax forms 2007 Crop shares you use to feed livestock. Federal tax forms 2007   Crop shares you receive as a landlord and feed to your livestock are considered converted to money when fed to the livestock. Federal tax forms 2007 You must include the fair market value of the crop shares in income at that time. Federal tax forms 2007 You are entitled to a business expense deduction for the livestock feed in the same amount and at the same time you include the fair market value of the crop share as rental income. Federal tax forms 2007 Although these two transactions cancel each other for figuring adjusted gross income on Form 1040, they may be necessary to figure your self-employment tax. Federal tax forms 2007 See  chapter 12. Federal tax forms 2007 Crop shares you give to others (gift). Federal tax forms 2007   Crop shares you receive as a landlord and give to others are considered converted to money when you make the gift. Federal tax forms 2007 You must report the fair market value of the crop share as income, even though someone else receives payment for the crop share. Federal tax forms 2007 Example. Federal tax forms 2007 A tenant farmed part of your land under a crop-share arrangement. Federal tax forms 2007 The tenant harvested and delivered the crop in your name to an elevator company. Federal tax forms 2007 Before selling any of the crop, you instructed the elevator company to cancel your warehouse receipt and make out new warehouse receipts in equal amounts of the crop in the names of your children. Federal tax forms 2007 They sell their crop shares in the following year and the elevator company makes payments directly to your children. Federal tax forms 2007 In this situation, you are considered to have received rental income and then made a gift of that income. Federal tax forms 2007 You must include the fair market value of the crop shares in your income for the tax year you gave the crop shares to your children. Federal tax forms 2007 Crop share loss. Federal tax forms 2007   If you are involved in a rental or crop-share lease arrangement, any loss from these activities may be subject to the limits under the passive loss rules. Federal tax forms 2007 See Publication 925 for information on these rules. Federal tax forms 2007 Agricultural Program Payments You must include in income most government payments, such as those for approved conservation practices, direct payments, and counter-cyclical payments, whether you receive them in cash, materials, services, or commodity certificates. Federal tax forms 2007 However, you can exclude from income some payments you receive under certain cost-sharing conservation programs. Federal tax forms 2007 See Cost-Sharing Exclusion (Improvements) , later. Federal tax forms 2007 Report the agricultural program payment on the appropriate line of Schedule F, Part I. Federal tax forms 2007 Report the full amount even if you return a government check for cancellation, refund any of the payment you receive, or the government collects all or part of the payment from you by reducing the amount of some other payment or Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) loan. Federal tax forms 2007 However, you can deduct the amount you refund or return or that reduces some other payment or loan to you. Federal tax forms 2007 Claim the deduction on Schedule F for the year of repayment or reduction. Federal tax forms 2007 Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) Loans Generally, you do not report loans you receive as income. Federal tax forms 2007 However, if you pledge part or all of your production to secure a CCC loan, you can treat the loan as if it were a sale of the crop and report the loan proceeds as income in the year you receive them. Federal tax forms 2007 You do not need approval from the IRS to adopt this method of reporting CCC loans. Federal tax forms 2007 Once you report a CCC loan as income for the year received, you generally must report all CCC loans in that year and later years in the same way. Federal tax forms 2007 However, you can obtain for your tax year an automatic consent to change your method of accounting for loans received from the CCC, from including the loan amount in gross income for the tax year in which the loan is received to treating the loan amount as a loan. Federal tax forms 2007 For more information, see Part I of the Instructions for Form 3115 and Revenue Procedure 2008-52. Federal tax forms 2007 Revenue Procedure 2008-52, 2008-36 I.

Federal tax forms 2007 html. Federal tax forms 2007 You can request income tax withholding from CCC loan payments you receive. Federal tax forms 2007 Use Form W-4V, Voluntary Withholding Request. Federal tax forms 2007 See chapter 16 for information about ordering the form. Federal tax forms 2007 To elect to report a CCC loan as income, include the loan proceeds as income on Schedule F, line 7a, for the year you receive it. Federal tax forms 2007 Attach a statement to your return showing the details of the loan. Federal tax forms 2007 You must file the statement and the return by the due date of the return, including extensions. Federal tax forms 2007 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). Federal tax forms 2007 Attach the statement to the amended return and write “Filed pursuant to section 301. Federal tax forms 2007 9100-2” at the top of the return. Federal tax forms 2007 File the amended return at the same address you filed the original return. Federal tax forms 2007 When you make this election, the amount you report as income becomes your basis in the commodity. Federal tax forms 2007 See chapter 6 for information on the basis of assets. Federal tax forms 2007 If you later repay the loan, redeem the pledged commodity, and sell it, you report as income at the time of sale the sale proceeds minus your basis in the commodity. Federal tax forms 2007 If the sale proceeds are less than your basis in the commodity, you can report the difference as a loss on Schedule F. Federal tax forms 2007 If you forfeit the pledged crops to the CCC in full payment of the loan, the forfeiture is treated for tax purposes as a sale of the crops. Federal tax forms 2007 If you did not report the loan proceeds as income for the year you received them, you must include them in your income for the year of the forfeiture. Federal tax forms 2007 Form 1099-A. Federal tax forms 2007   If you forfeit pledged crops to the CCC in full payment of a loan, you may receive a Form 1099-A, Acquisition or Abandonment of Secured Property. Federal tax forms 2007 “CCC” should be shown in box 6. Federal tax forms 2007 The amount of any CCC loan outstanding when you forfeited your commodity should also be indicated on the form. Federal tax forms 2007 Market Gain Under the CCC nonrecourse marketing assistance loan program, your repayment amount for a loan secured by your pledge of an eligible commodity is generally based on the lower of the loan rate or the prevailing world market price for the commodity on the date of repayment. Federal tax forms 2007 If you repay the loan when the world price is lower, the difference between that repayment amount and the original loan amount is market gain. Federal tax forms 2007 Whether you use cash or CCC certificates to repay the loan, you will receive a Form 1099-G showing the market gain you realized. Federal tax forms 2007 Market gain should be reported as follows. Federal tax forms 2007 If you elected to include the CCC loan in income in the year you received it, do not include the market gain in income. Federal tax forms 2007 However, adjust the basis of the commodity for the amount of the market gain. Federal tax forms 2007 If you did not include the CCC loan in income in the year received, include the market gain in your income. Federal tax forms 2007 The following examples show how to report market gain. Federal tax forms 2007 Example 1. Federal tax forms 2007 Mike Green is a cotton farmer. Federal tax forms 2007 He uses the cash method of accounting and files his tax return on a calendar year basis. Federal tax forms 2007 He has deducted all expenses incurred in producing the cotton and has a zero basis in the commodity. Federal tax forms 2007 In 2012, Mike pledged 1,000 pounds of cotton as collateral for a CCC loan of $2,000 (a loan rate of $2. Federal tax forms 2007 00 per pound). Federal tax forms 2007 In 2013, he repaid the loan and redeemed the cotton for $1,500 when the world price was $1. Federal tax forms 2007 50 per pound (lower than the loan amount). Federal tax forms 2007 Later in 2013, he sold the cotton for $2,500. Federal tax forms 2007 The market gain on the redemption was $. Federal tax forms 2007 50 ($2. Federal tax forms 2007 00 – $1. Federal tax forms 2007 50) per pound. Federal tax forms 2007 Mike realized total market gain of $500 ($. Federal tax forms 2007 50 x 1,000 pounds). Federal tax forms 2007 How he reports this market gain and figures his gain or loss from the sale of the cotton depends on whether he included CCC loans in income in 2012. Federal tax forms 2007 Included CCC loan. Federal tax forms 2007   Mike reported the $2,000 CCC loan as income for 2012 on Schedule F, line 1b, so he is treated as if he sold the cotton for $2,000 when he pledged it and repurchased the cotton for $1,500 when he redeemed it. Federal tax forms 2007 The $500 market gain is not recognized on the redemption. Federal tax forms 2007 He reports it for 2013 as an agricultural program payment on Schedule F, line 4a, but does not include it as a taxable amount on line 4b. Federal tax forms 2007   Mike's basis in the cotton after he redeemed it was $1,500, which is the redemption (repurchase) price paid for the cotton. Federal tax forms 2007 His gain from the sale is $1,000 ($2,500 – $1,500). Federal tax forms 2007 He reports the $1,000 gain as income for 2013 on Schedule F, line 1b. Federal tax forms 2007 Excluded CCC loan. Federal tax forms 2007   Mike has income of $500 from market gain in 2013. Federal tax forms 2007 He reports it on Schedule F, lines 4a and 4b. Federal tax forms 2007 His basis in the cotton is zero, so his gain from its sale is $2,500. Federal tax forms 2007 He reports the $2,500 gain as income for 2013 on Schedule F, line 1b. Federal tax forms 2007 Example 2. Federal tax forms 2007 The facts are the same as in Example 1 except that, instead of selling the cotton for $2,500 after redeeming it, Mike entered into an option-to-purchase contract with a cotton buyer before redeeming the cotton. Federal tax forms 2007 Under that contract, Mike authorized the cotton buyer to pay the CCC loan on Mike's behalf. Federal tax forms 2007 In 2013, the cotton buyer repaid the loan for $1,500 and immediately exercised his option, buying the cotton for $1,500. Federal tax forms 2007 How Mike reports the $500 market gain on the redemption of the cotton and figures his gain or loss from its sale depends on whether he included CCC loans in income in 2012. Federal tax forms 2007 Included CCC loan. Federal tax forms 2007   As in Example 1, Mike is treated as though he sold the cotton for $2,000 when he pledged it and repurchased the cotton for $1,500 when the cotton buyer redeemed it for him. Federal tax forms 2007 The $500 market gain is not recognized on the redemption. Federal tax forms 2007 Mike reports it for 2013 as an agricultural program payment on Schedule F, line 4a, but does not include it as a taxable amount on line 4b. Federal tax forms 2007   Also, as in Example 1, Mike's basis in the cotton when the cotton buyer redeemed it for him was $1,500. Federal tax forms 2007 Mike has no gain or loss on its sale to the cotton buyer for that amount. Federal tax forms 2007 Excluded CCC loan. Federal tax forms 2007   As in Example 1, Mike has income of $500 from market gain in 2013. Federal tax forms 2007 He reports it on Schedule F, lines 4a and 4b. Federal tax forms 2007 His basis in the cotton is zero, so his gain from its sale is $1,500. Federal tax forms 2007 He reports the $1,500 gain as income for 2013 on Schedule F, line 1b. Federal tax forms 2007 Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) Under the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), if you own or operate highly erodible or other specified cropland, you may enter into a long-term contract with the USDA, agreeing to convert to a less intensive use of that cropland. Federal tax forms 2007 You must include the annual rental payments and any one-time incentive payment you receive under the program on Schedule F, lines 4a and 4b. Federal tax forms 2007 Cost-share payments you receive may qualify for the cost-sharing exclusion. Federal tax forms 2007 See Cost-Sharing Exclusion (Improvements) , later. Federal tax forms 2007 CRP payments are reported to you on Form 1099-G. Federal tax forms 2007 Individuals who are receiving Social Security retirement or disability benefits may exclude CRP payments when calculating self-employment tax. Federal tax forms 2007 See the instructions for Schedule SE (Form 1040). Federal tax forms 2007 Crop Insurance and Crop Disaster Payments You must include in income any crop insurance proceeds you receive as the result of physical crop damage or reduction of crop revenue, or both. Federal tax forms 2007 You generally include them in the year you receive them. Federal tax forms 2007 Treat as crop insurance proceeds the crop disaster payments you receive from the federal government as the result of destruction or damage to crops, or the inability to plant crops, because of drought, flood, or any other natural disaster. Federal tax forms 2007 You can request income tax withholding from crop disaster payments you receive from the federal government. Federal tax forms 2007 Use Form W-4V, Voluntary Withholding Request. Federal tax forms 2007 See chapter 16 for information about ordering the form. Federal tax forms 2007 Election to postpone reporting until the following year. Federal tax forms 2007   You can postpone reporting some or all crop insurance proceeds as income until the year following the year the physical damage occurred if you meet all the following conditions. Federal tax forms 2007 You use the cash method of accounting. Federal tax forms 2007 You receive the crop insurance proceeds in the same tax year the crops are damaged. Federal tax forms 2007 You can show that under your normal business practice you would have included income from the damaged crops in any tax year following the year the damage occurred. Federal tax forms 2007   Deferral is not permitted for proceeds received from revenue insurance policies. Federal tax forms 2007   To postpone reporting some or all crop insurance proceeds received in 2013, report the amount you received on Schedule F, line 6a, but do not include it as a taxable amount on line 6b. Federal tax forms 2007 Check the box on line 8c and attach a statement to your tax return. Federal tax forms 2007 The statement must include your name and address and contain the following information. Federal tax forms 2007 A statement that you are making an election under IRC section 451(d) and Regulations section 1. Federal tax forms 2007 451-6. Federal tax forms 2007 The specific crop or crops physically destroyed or damaged. Federal tax forms 2007 A statement that under your normal business practice you would have included income from some or all of the destroyed or damaged crops in gross income for a tax year following the year the crops were destroyed or damaged. Federal tax forms 2007 The cause of the physical destruction or damage and the date or dates it occurred. Federal tax forms 2007 The total payments you received from insurance carriers, itemized for each specific crop, and the date you received each payment. Federal tax forms 2007 The name of each insurance carrier from whom you received payments. Federal tax forms 2007   One election covers all crops representing a single trade or business. Federal tax forms 2007 If you have more than one farming business, make a separate election for each one. Federal tax forms 2007 For example, if you operate two separate farms on which you grow different crops and you keep separate books for each farm, you should make two separate elections to postpone reporting insurance proceeds you receive for crops grown on each of your farms. Federal tax forms 2007   An election is binding for the year unless the IRS approves your request to change it. Federal tax forms 2007 To request IRS approval to change your election, write to the IRS at the following address giving your name, address, identification number, the year you made the election, and your reasons for wanting to change it. Federal tax forms 2007 Ogden Submission Processing Center P. Federal tax forms 2007 O. Federal tax forms 2007 Box 9941 Ogden, UT 84409 Feed Assistance and Payments The Disaster Assistance Act of 1988 authorizes programs to provide feed assistance, reimbursement payments, and other benefits to qualifying livestock producers if the Secretary of Agriculture determines that, because of a natural disaster, a livestock emergency exists. Federal tax forms 2007 These programs include partial reimbursement for the cost of purchased feed and for certain transportation expenses. Federal tax forms 2007 They also include the donation or sale at a below-market price of feed owned by the Commodity Credit Corporation. Federal tax forms 2007 Include in income: The market value of donated feed, The difference between the market value and the price you paid for feed you buy at below-market prices, and Any cost reimbursement you receive. Federal tax forms 2007 You must include these benefits in income in the year you receive them. Federal tax forms 2007 You cannot postpone reporting them under the rules explained earlier for weather-related sales of livestock or crop insurance proceeds. Federal tax forms 2007 Report the benefits on Schedule F, Part I, as agricultural program payments. Federal tax forms 2007 You can usually take a current deduction for the same amount as a feed expense. Federal tax forms 2007 Cost-Sharing Exclusion (Improvements) You can exclude from your income part or all of a payment you receive under certain federal or state cost-sharing conservation, reclamation, and restoration programs. Federal tax forms 2007 A payment is any economic benefit you get as a result of an improvement. Federal tax forms 2007 However, this exclusion applies only to that part of a payment that meets all three of the following tests. Federal tax forms 2007 It was for a capital expense. Federal tax forms 2007 You cannot exclude any part of a payment for an expense you can deduct in the year you pay or incur it. Federal tax forms 2007 You must include the payment for a deductible expense in income, and you can take any offsetting deduction. Federal tax forms 2007 See chapter 5 for information on deducting soil and water conservation expenses. Federal tax forms 2007 It does not substantially increase your annual income from the property for which it is made. Federal tax forms 2007 An increase in annual income is substantial if it is more than the greater of the following amounts. Federal tax forms 2007 10% of the average annual income derived from the affected property before receiving the improvement. Federal tax forms 2007 $2. Federal tax forms 2007 50 times the number of affected acres. Federal tax forms 2007 The Secretary of Agriculture certified that the payment was primarily made for conserving soil and water resources, protecting or restoring the environment, improving forests, or providing a habitat for wildlife. Federal tax forms 2007 Qualifying programs. Federal tax forms 2007   If the three tests listed above are met, you can exclude part or all of the payments from the following programs. Federal tax forms 2007 The rural clean water program authorized by the Federal Water Pollution Control Act. Federal tax forms 2007 The rural abandoned mine program authorized by the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977. Federal tax forms 2007 The water bank program authorized by the Water Bank Act. Federal tax forms 2007 The emergency conservation measures program authorized by title IV of the Agricultural Credit Act of 1978. Federal tax forms 2007 The agricultural conservation program authorized by the Soil Conservation and Domestic Allotment Act. Federal tax forms 2007 The great plains conservation program authorized by the Soil Conservation and Domestic Policy Act. Federal tax forms 2007 The resource conservation and development program authorized by the Bankhead-Jones Farm Tenant Act and by the Soil Conservation and Domestic Allotment Act. Federal tax forms 2007 Certain small watershed programs, listed later. Federal tax forms 2007 Any program of a state, possession of the United States, a political subdivision of any of these, or of the District of Columbia under which payments are made to individuals primarily for conserving soil, protecting or restoring the environment, improving forests, or providing a habitat for wildlife. Federal tax forms 2007 Several state programs have been approved. Federal tax forms 2007 For information about the status of those programs, contact the state offices of the Farm Service Agency (FSA) and the Natural Resources and Conservation Service (NRCS). Federal tax forms 2007 Small watershed programs. Federal tax forms 2007   If the three tests listed earlier are met, you can exclude part or all of the payments you receive under the following programs for improvements made in connection with a watershed. Federal tax forms 2007 The programs under the Watershed Protection and Flood Prevention Act. Federal tax forms 2007 The flood prevention projects under the Flood Control Act of 1944. Federal tax forms 2007 The Emergency Watershed Protection Program under the Flood Control Act of 1950. Federal tax forms 2007 Certain programs under the Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Act. Federal tax forms 2007 The Wetlands Reserve Program authorized by the Food Security Act of 1985, the Federal Agriculture Improvement and Reform Act of 1996 and the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002. Federal tax forms 2007 The Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) authorized by the Federal Agriculture Improvement and Reform Act of 1996. Federal tax forms 2007 The Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program (WHIP) authorized by the Federal Agriculture Improvement and Reform Act of 1996. Federal tax forms 2007 The Soil and Water Conservation Assistance Program authorized by the Agricultural Risk Protection Act of 2000. Federal tax forms 2007 The Agricultural Management Assistance Program authorized by the Agricultural Risk Protection Act of 2000. Federal tax forms 2007 The Conservation Reserve Program authorized by the Food Security Act of 1985 and the Federal Agriculture Improvement and Reform Act of 1996. Federal tax forms 2007 The Forest Land Enhancement Program authorized under the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002. Federal tax forms 2007 The Conservation Security Program authorized by the Food Security Act of 1985. Federal tax forms 2007 The Forest Health Protection Program (FHPP) authorized by the Cooperative Forestry Assistance Act of 1978. Federal tax forms 2007 Income realized. Federal tax forms 2007   The gross income you realize upon getting an improvement under these cost-sharing programs is the value of the improvement reduced by the sum of the excludable portion and your share of the cost of the improvement (if any). Federal tax forms 2007 Value of the improvement. Federal tax forms 2007   You determine the value of the improvement by multiplying its fair market value (defined in chapter 6) by a fraction. Federal tax forms 2007 The numerator of the fraction is the total cost of the improvement (all amounts paid either by you or by the government for the improvement) reduced by the sum of the following items. Federal tax forms 2007 Any government payments under a program not listed earlier. Federal tax forms 2007 Any part of a government payment under a program listed earlier that the Secretary of Agriculture has not certified as primarily for conservation. Federal tax forms 2007 Any government payment to you for rent or for your services. Federal tax forms 2007 The denominator of the fraction is the total cost of the improvement. Federal tax forms 2007 Excludable portion. Federal tax forms 2007   The excludable portion is the present fair market value of the right to receive annual income from the affected acreage of the greater of the following amounts. Federal tax forms 2007 10% of the prior average annual income from the affected acreage. Federal tax forms 2007 The prior average annual income is the average of the gross receipts from the affected acreage for the last 3 tax years before the tax year in which you started to install the improvement. Federal tax forms 2007 $2. Federal tax forms 2007 50 times the number of affected acres. Federal tax forms 2007 The calculation of present fair market value of the right to receive annual income is too complex to discuss in this publication. Federal tax forms 2007 You may need to consult your tax advisor for assistance. Federal tax forms 2007 Example. Federal tax forms 2007 One hundred acres of your land was reclaimed under a rural abandoned mine program contract with the Natural Resources Conservation Service of the USDA. Federal tax forms 2007 The total cost of the improvement was $500,000. Federal tax forms 2007 The USDA paid $490,000. Federal tax forms 2007 You paid $10,000. Federal tax forms 2007 The value of the cost-sharing improvement is $15,000. Federal tax forms 2007 The present fair market value of the right to receive the annual income described in (1) above is $1,380, and the present fair market value of the right to receive the annual income described in (2) is $1,550. Federal tax forms 2007 The excludable portion is the greater amount, $1,550. Federal tax forms 2007 You figure the amount to include in gross income as follows: Value of cost-sharing improvement $15,000 Minus: Your share $10,000     Excludable portion 1,550 11,550 Amount included in income $ 3,450 Effects of the exclusion. Federal tax forms 2007   When you figure the basis of property you acquire or improve using cost-sharing payments excluded from income, subtract the excluded payments from your capital costs. Federal tax forms 2007 Any payment excluded from income is not part of your basis. Federal tax forms 2007 In the example above, the increase in basis is $500,000 – $490,000 + $3,450 = $13,450. Federal tax forms 2007   In addition, you cannot take depreciation, amortization, or depletion deductions for the part of the cost of the property for which you receive cost-sharing payments you exclude from income. Federal tax forms 2007 How to report the exclusion. Federal tax forms 2007   Attach a statement to your tax return (or amended return) for the tax year you receive the last government payment for the improvement. Federal tax forms 2007 The statement must include the following information. Federal tax forms 2007 The dollar amount of the cost funded by the government payment. Federal tax forms 2007 The value of the improvement. Federal tax forms 2007 The amount you are excluding. Federal tax forms 2007   Report the total cost-sharing payments you receive on Schedule F, line 4a, and the taxable amount on line 4b. Federal tax forms 2007 Recapture. Federal tax forms 2007   If you dispose of the property within 20 years after you received the excluded payments, you must treat as ordinary income part or all of the cost-sharing payments you excluded. Federal tax forms 2007 In the above example, if the 100 acres were sold within 20 years of the exclusion for a gain of $2,000, $1,550 of that amount would be included in ordinary income. Federal tax forms 2007 You must report the recapture on Form 4797. Federal tax forms 2007 See Section 1255 property under Other Gains in chapter 9. Federal tax forms 2007 Electing not to exclude payments. Federal tax forms 2007   You can elect not to exclude all or part of any payments you receive under these programs. Federal tax forms 2007 If you make this election for all of these payments, none of the above restrictions and rules apply. Federal tax forms 2007 You must make this election by the due date, including extensions, for filing your return. Federal tax forms 2007 In the example above, an election not to exclude payments results in $5,000 included in income and a $15,000 increase in basis. Federal tax forms 2007 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). Federal tax forms 2007 Write “Filed pursuant to section 301. Federal tax forms 2007 9100-2” at the top of the amended return and file it at the same address you filed the original return. Federal tax forms 2007 Payments Under the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 and Under the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 The Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 created two new types of payments—direct and counter-cyclical payments. Federal tax forms 2007 You must include these payments on Schedule F, lines 4a and 4b. Federal tax forms 2007 The Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 provides for direct and counter-cyclical payments (DCP) as well as Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE) payments. Federal tax forms 2007 You must include these payments on Schedule F, lines 6a and 6b. Federal tax forms 2007 The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, enacted on January 2, 2013, amends the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 and provided a one-year extension for these payments. Federal tax forms 2007 Tobacco Quota Buyout Program Payments The Fair and Equitable Tobacco Reform Act of 2004, title VI of the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004, terminated the tobacco marketing quota program and the tobacco price support program. Federal tax forms 2007 As a result, the USDA offered to enter into contracts with eligible tobacco quota holders and growers to provide compensation for the lost value of the quotas and related price support. Federal tax forms 2007 If you are an eligible tobacco quota holder, your contract entitles you to receive total payments of $7 per pound of quota in 10 equal annual payments in fiscal years 2005 through 2014. Federal tax forms 2007 If you are an eligible tobacco grower, your contract entitles you to receive total payments of up to $3 per pound of quota in 10 equal annual payments in fiscal years 2005 through 2014. Federal tax forms 2007 Tobacco Quota Holders Contract payments you receive are considered proceeds from a sale of your tobacco quota as of the date on which you and the USDA enter into the contract. Federal tax forms 2007 Your taxable gain or loss is the total amount received for your quota reduced by any amount treated as interest (discussed below), over your adjusted basis. Federal tax forms 2007 The gain or loss is capital or ordinary depending on how you used the quota. Federal tax forms 2007 See Capital or ordinary gain or loss , later. Federal tax forms 2007 Report the entire gain on your income tax return for the tax year that includes the date you entered into the contract if you elect not to use the installment method. Federal tax forms 2007 Adjusted basis. Federal tax forms 2007   The adjusted basis of your quota is determined differently depending on how you obtained the quota. Federal tax forms 2007 The basis of a quota derived from an original grant by the federal government is zero. Federal tax forms 2007 The basis of a purchased quota is the purchase price. Federal tax forms 2007 The basis of a quota received as a gift is generally the same as the donor's basis. Federal tax forms 2007 However, under certain circumstances, the basis is increased by the amount of gift taxes paid. Federal tax forms 2007 If the basis is greater than the fair market value of the quota at the time of the gift, the basis for determining loss is the fair market value. Federal tax forms 2007 The basis of an inherited quota is generally the fair market value of the quota at the time of the decedent's death. Federal tax forms 2007 Reduction of basis. Federal tax forms 2007   You are required to reduce the basis of your tobacco quota by the following amounts. Federal tax forms 2007 Deductions you took for amortization, depletion, or depreciation. Federal tax forms 2007 Amounts you previously deducted as a loss because of a reduction in the number of pounds of tobacco allowable under the quota. Federal tax forms 2007 The entire cost of a purchased quota you deducted in an earlier year (which reduces your basis to zero). Federal tax forms 2007 Amount treated as interest. Federal tax forms 2007   You must reduce your tobacco quota buyout program payment by the amount treated as interest. Federal tax forms 2007 The interest is reportable as ordinary income. Federal tax forms 2007 If payments total $3,000 or less, your total quota buyout program payment does not include any amount treated as interest and you are not required to reduce the total payment you receive. Federal tax forms 2007   In all other cases, a portion of each payment may be treated as interest for federal tax purposes. Federal tax forms 2007 You may be required to reduce your total quota buyout program payment before you calculate your gain or loss. Federal tax forms 2007 For more information, see Notice 2005-57, 2005-32 I. Federal tax forms 2007 R. Federal tax forms 2007 B. Federal tax forms 2007 267, available at www. Federal tax forms 2007 irs. Federal tax forms 2007 gov/irb/2005-32_IRB/ar13. Federal tax forms 2007 html. Federal tax forms 2007 Installment method. Federal tax forms 2007   You may use the installment method to report a gain if you receive at least one payment after the close of your tax year. Federal tax forms 2007 Under the installment method, a portion of the gain is taken into account in each year in which a payment is received. Federal tax forms 2007 See chapter 10 for more information. Federal tax forms 2007 Capital or ordinary gain or loss. Federal tax forms 2007   Whether your gain or loss is ordinary or capital depends on how you used the quota. Federal tax forms 2007 Quota used in the trade or business of farming. Federal tax forms 2007   If you used the quota in the trade or business of farming and you held it for more than one year, you report the transaction as a section 1231 transaction on Form 4797. Federal tax forms 2007 See Section 1231 transactions in the Instructions for Form 4797 for detailed information on reporting section 1231 transactions. Federal tax forms 2007 Quota held for investment. Federal tax forms 2007   If you held the quota for investment purposes, any gain or loss is capital gain or loss. Federal tax forms 2007 The same result also applies if you held the quota for the production of income, though not connected with a trade or business. Federal tax forms 2007 Gain treated as ordinary income. Federal tax forms 2007   If you previously deducted any of the following items, some or all of the capital gain must be recharacterized and reported as ordinary income. Federal tax forms 2007 Any resulting capital gain is taxed as ordinary income up to the amount previously deducted. Federal tax forms 2007 The cost of acquiring a quota. Federal tax forms 2007 Amounts for amortization, depletion, or depreciation. Federal tax forms 2007 Amounts to reflect a reduction in the quota pounds. Federal tax forms 2007   You should include the ordinary income on your return for the tax year even if you use the installment method to report the remainder of the gain. Federal tax forms 2007 Self-employment income. Federal tax forms 2007   The tobacco quota buyout payments are not self-employment income. Federal tax forms 2007 Income averaging for farmers. Federal tax forms 2007   The gain or loss resulting from the quota payments does not qualify for income averaging. Federal tax forms 2007 A tobacco quota is considered an interest in land. Federal tax forms 2007 Income averaging is not available for gain or loss arising from the sale or other disposition of land. Federal tax forms 2007 Involuntary conversion. Federal tax forms 2007   The buyout of the tobacco quota is not an involuntary conversion. Federal tax forms 2007 Form 1099-S. Federal tax forms 2007   A tobacco quota is considered an interest in land, so the USDA will generally report the total amount you receive under a contract on Form 1099-S, Proceeds From Real Estate Transactions, if the amount is $600 or more. Federal tax forms 2007 The USDA will generally report any portion of a payment treated as interest of $600 or more to you on Form 1099-INT, Interest Income, for the year in which the payment is made. Federal tax forms 2007 Like-kind exchange of quota. Federal tax forms 2007   You may postpone reporting the gain or loss from tobacco quota buyout payments by entering into a like-kind exchange if you comply with the requirements of section 1031 and the regulations thereunder. Federal tax forms 2007 See Notice 2005-57 for more information. Federal tax forms 2007 Tobacco Growers Contract payments you receive are determined by reference to the amount of quota under which you produced (or planted) quota tobacco during the 2002, 2003, and 2004 tobacco marketing years and are prorated based on the number of years that you produced (or planted) quota tobacco during those years. Federal tax forms 2007 Taxation of payments to tobacco growers. Federal tax forms 2007   Payments to growers replace ordinary income that would have been earned had the tobacco marketing quota and price support programs continued. Federal tax forms 2007 Individuals will generally report the payments as an Agricultural program payment on Schedule F. Federal tax forms 2007 If you are a landowner who does not materially participate in the operation or management of the farm and are receiving the grower payment because your farm rental income is based on the tobacco grown by a tenant, the grower payment should be reported on Form 4835. Federal tax forms 2007 Self-employment income. Federal tax forms 2007   Payments to growers generally represent self-employment income. Federal tax forms 2007 If the grower is an individual carrying on a trade or business and deriving income (other than farm rental income properly reported on Form 4835) from that trade or business, the payments are net earnings from self-employment. Federal tax forms 2007 Income averaging for farmers. Federal tax forms 2007   Payments to growers who are individuals qualify for farm income averaging. Federal tax forms 2007 Form 1099-G. Federal tax forms 2007   If the amount received in a taxable year is $600 or more, the amount will generally be reported by the USDA on a Form 1099-G. Federal tax forms 2007 Other Payments You must include most other government program payments in income. Federal tax forms 2007 Fertilizer and Lime Include in income the value of fertilizer or lime you receive under a government program. Federal tax forms 2007 How to claim the offsetting deduction is explained under Fertilizer and Lime in chapter 4. Federal tax forms 2007 Improvements If government payments are based on improvements, such as a pollution control facility, you must include them in income. Federal tax forms 2007 You must also capitalize the full cost of the improvement. Federal tax forms 2007 Since you have included the payments in income, they do not reduce your basis. Federal tax forms 2007 However, see Cost-Sharing Exclusion (Improvements) , earlier, for additional information. Federal tax forms 2007 National Tobacco Growers' Settlement Trust Fund Payments If you are a producer, landowner, or tobacco quota owner who receives money from the National Tobacco Growers' Settlement Trust Fund, you must report those payments as income. Federal tax forms 2007 You should receive a Form 1099-MISC, Miscellaneous Income, that shows the payment amount. Federal tax forms 2007 If you produce a tobacco crop, report the payments as income from farming on your Schedule F. Federal tax forms 2007 If you are a landowner or tobacco quota owner who leases tobacco-related property but you do not produce the crop, report the payments as farm rental income on Form 4835. Federal tax forms 2007 Payment to More Than One Person The USDA reports program payments to the IRS. Federal tax forms 2007 It reports a program payment intended for more than one person as having been paid to the person whose identification number is on record for that payment (payee of record). Federal tax forms 2007 If you, as the payee of record, receive a program payment belonging to someone else, such as your landlord, the amount belonging to the other person is a nominee distribution. Federal tax forms 2007 You should file Form 1099-G to report the identity of the actual recipient to the IRS. Federal tax forms 2007 You should also give this information to the recipient. Federal tax forms 2007 You can avoid the inconvenience of unnecessary inquiries about the identity of the recipient if you file this form. Federal tax forms 2007 Report the total amount reported to you as the payee of record on Schedule F, line 4a or 6a. Federal tax forms 2007 However, do not report as a taxable amount on line 4b or 6b any amount belonging to someone else. Federal tax forms 2007 See chapter 16 for information about ordering Form 1099-G. Federal tax forms 2007 Income From Cooperatives If you buy farm supplies through a cooperative, you may receive income from the cooperative in the form of patronage dividends (refunds). Federal tax forms 2007 If you sell your farm products through a cooperative, you may receive either patronage dividends or a per-unit retain certificate, explained later, from the cooperative. Federal tax forms 2007 Form 1099-PATR. Federal tax forms 2007   The cooperative will report the income to you on Form 1099-PATR or a similar form and send a copy to the IRS. Federal tax forms 2007 Form 1099-PATR may also show an alternative minimum tax adjustment that you must include on Form 6251, Alternative Minimum Tax—Individuals, if you are required to file the form. Federal tax forms 2007 For information on the alternative minimum tax, see the Instructions for Form 6251. Federal tax forms 2007 Patronage Dividends You generally report patronage dividends as income on Schedule F, lines 3a and 3b, for the tax year you receive them. Federal tax forms 2007 They include the following items. Federal tax forms 2007 Money paid as a patronage dividend, including cash advances received (for example, from a marketing cooperative). Federal tax forms 2007 The stated dollar value of qualified written notices of allocation. Federal tax forms 2007 The fair market value of other property. Federal tax forms 2007 Do not report as income on line 3b any patronage dividends you receive from expenditures that were not deductible, such as buying personal or family items, capital assets, or depreciable property. Federal tax forms 2007 You must reduce the cost or other basis of these items by the amount of such patronage dividends received. Federal tax forms 2007 Personal items include fuel purchased for personal use, basic local telephone service, and personal long distance calls. Federal tax forms 2007 If you cannot determine what the dividend is for, report it as income on lines 3a and 3b. Federal tax forms 2007 Qualified written notice of allocation. Federal tax forms 2007   If you receive a qualified written notice of allocation as part of a patronage dividend, you must generally include its stated dollar value in your income on Schedule F, lines 3a and 3b, in the year you receive it. Federal tax forms 2007 A written notice of allocation is qualified if at least 20% of the patronage dividend is paid in money or by qualified check and either of the following conditions is met. Federal tax forms 2007 The notice must be redeemable in cash for at least 90 days after it is issued, and you must have received a written notice of your right of redemption at the same time as the written notice of allocation. Federal tax forms 2007 You must have agreed to include the stated dollar value in income in the year you receive the notice by doing one of the following. Federal tax forms 2007 Signing and giving a written agreement to the cooperative. Federal tax forms 2007 Getting or keeping membership in the cooperative after it adopted a bylaw providing that membership constitutes agreement. Federal tax forms 2007 The cooperative must notify you in writing of this bylaw and give you a copy.

Federal tax forms 2007 You must cash the check by the 90th day after the close of the payment period for the cooperative's tax year for which the patronage dividend was paid. Federal tax forms 2007 Qualified check. Federal tax forms 2007   A qualified check is any instrument that is redeemable in money and meets both of the following requirements. Federal tax forms 2007 It is part of a patronage dividend that also includes a qualified written notice of allocation for which you met condition 2(c), above. Federal tax forms 2007 It is imprinted with a statement that endorsing and cashing it constitutes the payee's consent to include in income the stated dollar value of any written notices of allocation paid as part of the same patronage dividend. Federal tax forms 2007 Loss on redemption. Federal tax forms 2007   You can deduct on Schedule F, Part II, any loss incurred on the redemption of a qualified written notice of allocation you received in the ordinary course of your farming business. Federal tax forms 2007 The loss is the difference between the stated dollar amount of the qualified written notice you included in income and the amount you received when you redeemed it. Federal tax forms 2007 Nonqualified notice of allocation. Federal tax forms 2007   Do not include the stated dollar value of any nonqualified notice of allocation in income when you receive it. Federal tax forms 2007 Your basis in the notice is zero. Federal tax forms 2007 You must include in income for the tax year of disposition any amount you receive from its sale, redemption, or other disposition. Federal tax forms 2007 Report that amount, up to the stated dollar value of the notice, on Schedule F, lines 3a and 3b. Federal tax forms 2007 However, do not include that amount in your income if the notice resulted from buying or selling capital assets or depreciable property or from buying personal items, as explained in the following discussions. Federal tax forms 2007   If the amount you receive is more than the stated dollar value of the notice, report the excess as the type of income it represents. Federal tax forms 2007 For example, if it represents interest income, report it on your return as interest. Federal tax forms 2007 Buying or selling capital assets or depreciable property. Federal tax forms 2007   Do not include in income patronage dividends from buying capital assets or depreciable property used in your business. Federal tax forms 2007 You must, however, reduce the basis of these assets by the dividends. Federal tax forms 2007 This reduction is taken into account as of the first day of the tax year in which the dividends are received. Federal tax forms 2007 If the dividends are more than your unrecovered basis, reduce the unrecovered basis to zero and include the difference on Schedule F, line 3a, for the tax year you receive them. Federal tax forms 2007   This rule and the exceptions explained below also apply to amounts you receive from the sale, redemption, or other disposition of a nonqualified notice of allocation that resulted from buying or selling capital assets or depreciable property. Federal tax forms 2007 Example. Federal tax forms 2007 On July 1, 2012, Mr. Federal tax forms 2007 Brown, a patron of a cooperative association, bought a machine for his dairy farm business from the association for $2,900. Federal tax forms 2007 The machine has a life of 7 years under MACRS (as provided in the Table of Class Lives and Recovery Periods in Appendix B of Publication 946, Depreciation and Amortization). Federal tax forms 2007 Mr. Federal tax forms 2007 Brown files his return on a calendar year basis. Federal tax forms 2007 For 2012, he claimed a depreciation deduction of $311, using the 10. Federal tax forms 2007 71% depreciation rate from the 150% declining balance, half-year convention table (shown in Table A-14 in Appendix A of Publication 946). Federal tax forms 2007 On July 2, 2013, the cooperative association paid Mr. Federal tax forms 2007 Brown a $300 cash patronage dividend for buying the machine. Federal tax forms 2007 Mr. Federal tax forms 2007 Brown adjusts the basis of the machine and figures his depreciation deduction for 2013 (and later years) as follows. Federal tax forms 2007 Cost of machine on July 1, 2012 $2,900 Minus: 2012 depreciation $311     2013 cash dividend 300 611 Adjusted basis for  depreciation for 2013: $2,289 Depreciation rate: 1 ÷ 6½ (remaining recovery period as of 1/1/2012) = 15. Federal tax forms 2007 38% × 1. Federal tax forms 2007 5 = 23. Federal tax forms 2007 07% Depreciation deduction for 2013 ($2,289 × 23. Federal tax forms 2007 07%) $528 Exceptions. Federal tax forms 2007   If the dividends are for buying or selling capital assets or depreciable property you did not own at any time during the year you received the dividends, you must include them on Schedule F, lines 3a and 3b, unless one of the following rules applies. Federal tax forms 2007 If the dividends relate to a capital asset you held for more than 1 year for which a loss was or would have been deductible, treat them as gain from the sale or exchange of a capital asset held for more than 1 year. Federal tax forms 2007 If the dividends relate to a capital asset for which a loss was not or would not have been deductible, do not report them as income (ordinary or capital gain). Federal tax forms 2007   If the dividends are for selling capital assets or depreciable property during the year you received the dividends, treat them as an additional amount received on the sale. Federal tax forms 2007 Personal purchases. Federal tax forms 2007   Because you cannot deduct the cost of personal, living, or family items, such as supplies, equipment, or services not related to the production of farm income, you can omit from the taxable amount of patronage dividends on Schedule F, line 3b, any dividends from buying those items (and you must reduce the cost or other basis of those items by the amount of the dividends). Federal tax forms 2007 This rule also applies to amounts you receive from the sale, redemption, or other disposition of a nonqualified written notice of allocation resulting from these purchases. Federal tax forms 2007 Per-Unit Retain Certificates A per-unit retain certificate is any written notice that shows the stated dollar amount of a per-unit retain allocation made to you by the cooperative. Federal tax forms 2007 A per-unit retain allocation is an amount paid to patrons for products sold for them that is fixed without regard to the net earnings of the cooperative. Federal tax forms 2007 These allocations can be paid in money, other property, or qualified certificates. Federal tax forms 2007 Per-unit retain certificates issued by a cooperative generally receive the same tax treatment as patronage dividends, discussed earlier. Federal tax forms 2007 Qualified certificates. Federal tax forms 2007   Qualified per-unit retain certificates are those issued to patrons who have agreed to include the stated dollar amount of these certificates in income in the year of receipt. Federal tax forms 2007 The agreement may be made in writing or by getting or keeping membership in a cooperative whose bylaws or charter states that membership constitutes agreement. Federal tax forms 2007 If you receive qualified per-unit retain certificates, include the stated dollar amount of the certificates in income on Schedule F, lines 3a and 3b, for the tax year you receive them. Federal tax forms 2007 Nonqualified certificates. Federal tax forms 2007   Do not include the stated dollar value of a nonqualified per-unit retain certificate in income when you receive it. Federal tax forms 2007 Your basis in the certificate is zero. Federal tax forms 2007 You must include in income any amount you receive from its sale, redemption, or other disposition. Federal tax forms 2007 Report the amount you receive from the disposition as ordinary income on Schedule F, lines 3a and 3b, for the tax year of disposition. Federal tax forms 2007 Cancellation of Debt This section explains the general rule for including canceled debt in income and the exceptions to the general rule. Federal tax forms 2007 For more information on canceled debt, see Publication 4681, Canceled Debts, Foreclosures, Repossessions, and Abandonments. Federal tax forms 2007 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 gross income for tax purposes. Federal tax forms 2007 Discharge of qualified farm indebtedness (defined below) is one of the exceptions to the general rule.

Federal tax forms 2007 See IRC section 108(i) and Publication 4681 for details. Federal tax forms 2007 Form 1099-C. Federal tax forms 2007   If a federal agency, financial institution, credit union, finance company, or credit card company cancels or forgives your debt of $600 or more, you will receive a Form 1099-C, Cancellation of Debt. Federal tax forms 2007 The amount of debt canceled is shown in box 2. Federal tax forms 2007 Exceptions The following discussion covers some exceptions to the general rule for canceled debt. Federal tax forms 2007 These exceptions apply before the exclusions discussed below. Federal tax forms 2007 Price reduced after purchase. Federal tax forms 2007   If your purchase of property was financed by the seller and the seller reduces the amount of the debt at a time when you are not insolvent and the reduction does not occur in a chapter 11 bankruptcy case, the amount of the debt reduction will be treated as a reduction in the purchase price of the property. Federal tax forms 2007 Reduce your basis in the property by the amount of the reduction in the debt. Federal tax forms 2007 The rules that apply to bankruptcy and insolvency are explained below under Exclusions . Federal tax forms 2007 Deductible debt. Federal tax forms 2007   You do not realize income from a canceled debt to the extent the payment of the debt would have been a deductible expense. Federal tax forms 2007 This exception applies before the price reduction exception discussed above and the bankruptcy and insolvency exclusions discussed next. Federal tax forms 2007 Example. Federal tax forms 2007 You get accounting services for your farm on credit. Federal tax forms 2007 Later, you have trouble paying your farm debts, but you are not bankrupt or insolvent. Federal tax forms 2007 Your accountant forgives part of the amount you owe for the accounting services. Federal tax forms 2007 How you treat the canceled debt depends on your method of accounting. Federal tax forms 2007 Cash method — You do not include the canceled debt in income because payment of the debt would have been deductible as a business expense. Federal tax forms 2007 Accrual method — You include the canceled debt in income because the expense was deductible when you incurred the debt. Federal tax forms 2007 Exclusions Do not include canceled debt in income in the following situations. Federal tax forms 2007 The cancellation takes place in a bankruptcy case under title 11 of the U. Federal tax forms 2007 S. Federal tax forms 2007 Code. Federal tax forms 2007 The cancellation takes place when you are insolvent. Federal tax forms 2007 The canceled debt is a qualified farm debt. Federal tax forms 2007 The canceled debt is a qualified real property business debt (in the case of a taxpayer other than a C corporation). Federal tax forms 2007 See Publication 334, Tax Guide for Small Business, chapter 5. Federal tax forms 2007 The canceled debt is qualified principal residence indebtedness which is discharged after 2006 and before 2014. Federal tax forms 2007 The exclusions do not apply in the following situations: If a canceled debt is excluded from income because it takes place in a bankruptcy case, the exclusions in situations (2), (3), (4), and (5) do not apply. Federal tax forms 2007 If a canceled debt is excluded from income because it takes place when you are insolvent, the exclusions in situations (3) and (4) do not apply to the extent you are insolvent. Federal tax forms 2007 If a canceled debt is excluded from income because it is qualified principal residence indebtedness, the exclusion in situation (2) does not apply unless you elect to apply situation (2) instead of the exclusion for qualified principal residence indebtedness. Federal tax forms 2007 See Form 982 , later, for information on how to claim an exclusion for a canceled debt. Federal tax forms 2007 Debt. Federal tax forms 2007   For this discussion, debt includes any debt for which you are liable or that attaches to property you hold. Federal tax forms 2007 Bankruptcy and Insolvency You can exclude a canceled debt from income if you are bankrupt or to the extent you are insolvent. Federal tax forms 2007 Bankruptcy. Federal tax forms 2007   A bankruptcy case is a case under title 11 of the U. Federal tax forms 2007 S. Federal tax forms 2007 Code if you are under the jurisdiction of the court and the cancellation of the debt is granted by the court or is the result of a plan approved by the court. Federal tax forms 2007   Do not include debt canceled in a bankruptcy case in your income in the year it is canceled. Federal tax forms 2007 Instead, you must use the amount canceled to reduce your tax attributes, explained below under Reduction of tax attributes . Federal tax forms 2007 Insolvency. Federal tax forms 2007   You are insolvent to the extent your liabilities are more than the fair market value of your assets immediately before the cancellation of debt. Federal tax forms 2007   You can exclude canceled debt from gross income up to the amount by which you are insolvent. Federal tax forms 2007 If the canceled debt is more than this amount and the debt qualifies, you can apply the rules for qualified farm debt or qualified real property business debt to the difference. Federal tax forms 2007 Otherwise, you include the difference in gross income. Federal tax forms 2007 Use the amount excluded because of insolvency to reduce any tax attributes, as explained below under Reduction of tax attributes . Federal tax forms 2007 You must reduce the tax attributes under the insolvency rules before applying the rules for qualified farm debt or for qualified real property business debt. Federal tax forms 2007 Example. Federal tax forms 2007 You had a $15,000 debt that was not qualified principal residence debt canceled outside of bankruptcy. Federal tax forms 2007 Immediately before the cancellation, your liabilities totaled $80,000 and your assets totaled $75,000. Federal tax forms 2007 Since your liabilities were more than your assets, you were insolvent to the extent of $5,000 ($80,000 − $75,000). Federal tax forms 2007 You can exclude this amount from income. Federal tax forms 2007 The remaining canceled debt ($10,000) may be subject to the qualified farm debt or qualified real property business debt rules. Federal tax forms 2007 If not, you must include it in income. Federal tax forms 2007 Reduction of tax attributes. Federal tax forms 2007   If you exclude canceled debt from income in a bankruptcy case or during insolvency, you must use the excluded debt to reduce certain tax attributes. Federal tax forms 2007 Order of reduction. Federal tax forms 2007   You must use the excluded canceled debt to reduce the following tax attributes in the order listed unless you elect to reduce the basis of depreciable property first, as explained later. Federal tax forms 2007 Net operating loss (NOL). Federal tax forms 2007 Reduce any NOL for the tax year of the debt cancellation, and then any NOL carryover to that year. Federal tax forms 2007 Reduce the NOL or NOL carryover one dollar for each dollar of excluded canceled debt. Federal tax forms 2007 General business credit carryover. Federal tax forms 2007 Reduce the credit carryover to or from the tax year of the debt cancellation. Federal tax forms 2007 Reduce the carryover 331/3 cents for each dollar of excluded canceled debt. Federal tax forms 2007 Minimum tax credit. Federal tax forms 2007 Reduce the minimum tax credit available at the beginning of the tax year following the tax year of the debt cancellation. Federal tax forms 2007 Reduce the credit 331/3 cents for each dollar of excluded canceled debt. Federal tax forms 2007 Capital loss. Federal tax forms 2007 Reduce any net capital loss for the tax year of the debt cancellation, and then any capital loss carryover to that year. Federal tax forms 2007 Reduce the capital loss or loss carryover one dollar for each dollar of excluded canceled debt. Federal tax forms 2007 Basis. Federal tax forms 2007 Reduce the basis of the property you hold at the beginning of the tax year following the tax year of the debt cancellation in the following order. Federal tax forms 2007 Real property (except inventory) used in your trade or business or held for investment that secured the canceled debt. Federal tax forms 2007 Personal property (except inventory and accounts and notes receivable) used in your trade or business or held for investment that secured the canceled debt. Federal tax forms 2007 Other property (except inventory and accounts and notes receivable) used in your trade or business or held for investment. Federal tax forms 2007 Inventory and accounts and notes receivable. Federal tax forms 2007 Other property. Federal tax forms 2007 Reduce the basis one dollar for each dollar of excluded canceled debt. Federal tax forms 2007 However, the reduction cannot be more than the total basis of property and the amount of money you hold immediately after the debt cancellation minus your total liabilities immediately after the cancellation. Federal tax forms 2007 For allocation rules that apply to basis reductions for multiple canceled debts, see Regulations section 1. Federal tax forms 2007 1017-1(b)(2). Federal tax forms 2007 Also see Electing to reduce the basis of depreciable property
