Freetaxusa Divide your farm gross income by your total gross income to determine the percentage of gross income from farming. Freetaxusa Example 1. Freetaxusa Jane Smith had the following total gross income and farm gross income amounts in 2013. Freetaxusa Gross Income   Total Farm Taxable interest $3,000   Dividends 500   Rental income (Sch E) 41,500   Farm income (Sch F) 75,000 $75,000 Gain (Form 4797) 5,000 5,000 Total $125,000 $80,000 Schedule D showed gain from the sale of dairy cows carried over from Form 4797 ($5,000) in addition to a loss from the sale of corporate stock ($2,000). Freetaxusa However, that loss is not netted against the gain to figure Ms. Freetaxusa Smith's total gross income or her gross farm income.

Freetaxusa Assume the same fact as in Example 1. Freetaxusa Ms. Freetaxusa Smith's gross farm income is only 64% of her total income. Freetaxusa Therefore, based on her 2013 income, she does not qualify to use the special estimated tax rules for qualified farmers. Freetaxusa However, she does qualify if at least two-thirds of her 2012 gross income was from farming. Freetaxusa Example 3. Freetaxusa Assume the same facts as in Example 1 except that Ms. Freetaxusa Smith's farm income from Schedule F was $90,000 instead of $75,000. Freetaxusa This made her total gross income $140,000 ($3,000 + $500 + $41,500 + $90,000 + $5,000) and her farm gross income $95,000 ($90,000 + $5,000). Freetaxusa She qualifies to use the special estimated tax rules for qualified farmers, since 67. Freetaxusa 9% (at least two-thirds) of her gross income is from farming ($95,000 ÷ $140,000 = .

Freetaxusa For more information, see chapter 4 of Publication 505. Freetaxusa Estimated Tax Penalty for 2013 If you do not pay all your required estimated tax for 2013 by January 15, 2014, or file your 2013 return and pay any tax due by March 3, 2014, you may owe a penalty.
