File 1040

File 1040 3. File 1040   Abandonments Table of Contents You abandon property when you voluntarily and permanently give up possession and use of the property with the intention of ending your ownership but without passing it on to anyone else. File 1040 Whether an abandonment has occurred is determined in light of all the facts and circumstances. File 1040 You must both show an intention to abandon the property and affirmatively act to abandon the property. File 1040 A voluntary conveyance of the property in lieu of foreclosure is not an abandonment and is treated as the exchange of property to satisfy a debt. File 1040 For more information, see Sales and Exchanges in Publication 544. File 1040 The tax consequences of abandonment of property that secures a debt depend on whether you were personally liable for the debt (recourse debt) or were not personally liable for the debt (nonrecourse debt). File 1040 See Publication 544 if you abandoned property that did not secure debt. File 1040 This publication only discusses the tax consequences of abandoning property that secured a debt. File 1040 Abandonment of property securing recourse debt. File 1040    In most cases, if you abandon property that secures debt for which you are personally liable (recourse debt), you do not have gain or loss until the later foreclosure is completed. File 1040 For details on figuring gain or loss on the foreclosure, see chapter 2. File 1040 Example 1—abandonment of personal-use property securing recourse debt. File 1040 In 2009, Anne purchased a home for $200,000. File 1040 She borrowed the entire purchase price, for which she was personally liable, and gave the bank a mortgage on the home. File 1040 In 2013, Anne lost her job and was unable to continue making her mortgage loan payments. File 1040 Because her mortgage loan balance was $185,000 and the FMV of her home was only $150,000, Anne decided to abandon her home by permanently moving out on August 1, 2013. File 1040 Because Anne was personally liable for the debt and the bank did not complete a foreclosure of the property in 2013, Anne has neither gain nor loss in tax year 2013 from abandoning the home. File 1040 If the bank sells the house at a foreclosure sale in 2014, Anne will have to figure her gain or nondeductible loss for tax year 2014 as discussed earlier in chapter 2. File 1040 Example 2—abandonment of business or investment property securing recourse debt. File 1040 In 2009, Sue purchased business property for $200,000. File 1040 She borrowed the entire purchase price, for which she was personally liable, and gave the lender a security interest in the property. File 1040 In 2013, Sue was unable to continue making her loan payments. File 1040 Because her loan balance was $185,000 and the FMV of the property was only $150,000, Sue abandoned the property on August 1, 2013. File 1040 Because Sue was personally liable for the debt and the lender did not complete a foreclosure of the property in 2013, Sue has neither gain nor loss in tax year 2013 from abandoning the property. File 1040 If the lender sells the property at a foreclosure sale in 2014, Sue will have to figure her gain or deductible loss for tax year 2014 as discussed earlier in chapter 2. File 1040 Abandonment of property securing nonrecourse debt. File 1040    If you abandon property that secures debt for which you are not personally liable (nonrecourse debt), the abandonment is treated as a sale or exchange. File 1040   The amount you realize on the abandonment of property that secured nonrecourse debt is the amount of the nonrecourse debt. File 1040 If the amount you realize is more than your adjusted basis, then you have a gain. File 1040 If your adjusted basis is more than the amount you realize, then you have a loss. File 1040 For more information on how to figure gain and loss, see Gain or Loss from Sales or Exchanges in Publication 544. File 1040   Loss from abandonment of business or investment property is deductible as a loss. File 1040 The character of the loss depends on the character of the property. File 1040 The amount of deductible capital loss may be limited. File 1040 For more information, see Treatment of Capital Losses in Publication 544. File 1040 You cannot deduct any loss from abandonment of your home or other property held for personal use. File 1040 Example 1—abandonment of personal-use property securing nonrecourse debt. File 1040 In 2009, Timothy purchased a home for $200,000. File 1040 He borrowed the entire purchase price, for which he was not personally liable, and gave the bank a mortgage on the home. File 1040 In 2013, Timothy lost his job and was unable to continue making his mortgage loan payments. File 1040 Because his mortgage loan balance was $185,000 and the FMV of his home was only $150,000, Timothy decided to abandon his home by permanently moving out on August 1, 2013. File 1040 Because Timothy was not personally liable for the debt, the abandonment is treated as a sale or exchange of the home in tax year 2013. File 1040 Timothy's amount realized is $185,000 and his adjusted basis in the home is $200,000. File 1040 Timothy has a $15,000 nondeductible loss in tax year 2013. File 1040 (Had Timothy’s adjusted basis been less than the amount realized, Timothy would have had a gain that he would have to include in gross income. File 1040 ) The bank sells the house at a foreclosure sale in 2014. File 1040 Timothy has neither gain nor loss from the foreclosure sale. File 1040 Because he was not personally liable for the debt, he also has no cancellation of debt income. File 1040 Example 2—abandonment of business or investment property securing nonrecourse debt. File 1040 In 2009, Robert purchased business property for $200,000. File 1040 He borrowed the entire purchase price, for which he was not personally liable, and gave the lender a security interest in the property. File 1040 In 2013, Robert was unable to continue making his loan payments. File 1040 Because his loan balance was $185,000 and the FMV of the property was only $150,000, Robert decided to abandon the property on August 1, 2013. File 1040 Because Robert was not personally liable for the debt, the abandonment is treated as a sale or exchange of the property in tax year 2013. File 1040 Robert's amount realized is $185,000 and his adjusted basis in the property is $180,000 (as a result of $20,000 of depreciation deductions on the property). File 1040 Robert has a $5,000 gain in tax year 2013. File 1040 (Had Robert’s adjusted basis been greater than the amount realized, he would have had a deductible loss. File 1040 ) The lender sells the property at a foreclosure sale in 2014. File 1040 Robert has neither gain nor loss from the foreclosure sale. File 1040 Because he was not personally liable for the debt, he also has no cancellation of debt income. File 1040 Canceled debt. File 1040    If the abandoned property secures a debt for which you are personally liable and the debt is canceled, you will realize ordinary income equal to the canceled debt. File 1040 This income is separate from any amount realized from abandonment of the property. File 1040 You must report this income on your return unless one of the exceptions or exclusions described in chapter 1 applies. File 1040 See chapter 1 for more details. File 1040 Forms 1099-A and 1099-C. File 1040    In most cases, if you abandon real property (such as a home), intangible property, or tangible personal property held (wholly or partly) for use in a trade or business or for investment, that secures a loan and the lender knows the property has been abandoned, the lender should send you Form 1099-A showing information you need to figure your gain or loss from the abandonment. File 1040 Also, if your debt is canceled and the lender must file Form 1099-C, the lender can include the information about the abandonment on that form instead of on Form 1099-A. File 1040 The lender must file Form 1099-C and send you a copy if the amount of debt canceled is $600 or more and the lender is a financial institution, credit union, federal government agency, or any organization that has a significant trade or business of lending money. File 1040 For abandonments of property and debt cancellations occurring in 2013, these forms should be sent to you by January 31, 2014. File 1040 Prev  Up  Next   Home   More Online Publications

IRS Withholding Calculator

If you are an employee, the Withholding Calculator can help you determine whether you need to give your employer a new  Form W-4, Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate to avoid having too much or too little Federal income tax withheld from your pay. You can use your results from the calculator to help fill out the form.

Who Can Benefit From The Withholding Calculator?

  • Employees who would like to change their withholding to reduce their tax refund or their balance due;
  • Employees whose situations are only approximated by the worksheets on the paper W-4 (e.g., anyone with concurrent jobs, or couples in which both are employed; those entitled to file as Head of Household; and those with several children eligible for the Child Tax Credit);
  • Employees with non-wage income in excess of their adjustments and deductions, who would prefer to have tax on that income withheld from their paychecks rather than make periodic separate payments through the estimated tax procedures.

CAUTION:    If you will be subject to alternative minimum tax, self-employment tax, or other taxes; you will probably achieve more accurate withholding by following the instructions in Pub 505: Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax.

Ready to start? Make sure scripting is enabled before using this application. Continue to the Withholding Calculator

Tips For Using This Program

  • Have your most recent pay stubs handy.
  • Have your most recent income tax return handy.
  • Estimate values if necessary, remembering that the results can only be as accurate as the input you provide.

To Change Your Withholding:

  1. Use your results from this calculator to help you complete a new Form W-4, Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate.
  2. Submit the completed Form to your employer.
