How do i file my taxes for last year However, the rules for property held for personal use usually will not apply to taxpayers other than individuals. How do i file my taxes for last year See chapter 5 for information about getting publications and forms. How do i file my taxes for last year Sales and Exchanges A sale is a transfer of property for money or a mortgage, note, or other promise to pay money. How do i file my taxes for last year An exchange is a transfer of property for other property or services. How do i file my taxes for last year The following discussions describe the kinds of transactions that are treated as sales or exchanges and explain how to figure gain or loss. How do i file my taxes for last year Sale or lease. How do i file my taxes for last year    Some agreements that seem to be leases may really be conditional sales contracts. How do i file my taxes for last year The intention of the parties to the agreement can help you distinguish between a sale and a lease. How do i file my taxes for last year   There is no test or group of tests to prove what the parties intended when they made the agreement. How do i file my taxes for last year You should consider each agreement based on its own facts and circumstances. How do i file my taxes for last year For more information, see chapter 3 in Publication 535, Business Expenses. How do i file my taxes for last year Cancellation of a lease. How do i file my taxes for last year    Payments received by a tenant for the cancellation of a lease are treated as an amount realized from the sale of property. How do i file my taxes for last year Payments received by a landlord (lessor) for the cancellation of a lease are essentially a substitute for rental payments and are taxed as ordinary income in the year in which they are received. How do i file my taxes for last year Copyright. How do i file my taxes for last year    Payments you receive for granting the exclusive use of (or right to exploit) a copyright throughout its life in a particular medium are treated as received from the sale of property. How do i file my taxes for last year It does not matter if the payments are a fixed amount or a percentage of receipts from the sale, performance, exhibition, or publication of the copyrighted work, or an amount based on the number of copies sold, performances given, or exhibitions made. How do i file my taxes for last year Nor does it matter if the payments are made over the same period as that covering the grantee's use of the copyrighted work. How do i file my taxes for last year   If the copyright was used in your trade or business and you held it longer than a year, the gain or loss may be a section 1231 gain or loss. How do i file my taxes for last year For more information, see Section 1231 Gains and Losses in chapter 3. How do i file my taxes for last year Easement. How do i file my taxes for last year   The amount received for granting an easement is subtracted from the basis of the property. How do i file my taxes for last year If only a specific part of the entire tract of property is affected by the easement, only the basis of that part is reduced by the amount received. How do i file my taxes for last year If it is impossible or impractical to separate the basis of the part of the property on which the easement is granted, the basis of the whole property is reduced by the amount received. How do i file my taxes for last year   Any amount received that is more than the basis to be reduced is a taxable gain. How do i file my taxes for last year The transaction is reported as a sale of property. How do i file my taxes for last year   If you transfer a perpetual easement for consideration and do not keep any beneficial interest in the part of the property affected by the easement, the transaction will be treated as a sale of property. How do i file my taxes for last year However, if you make a qualified conservation contribution of a restriction or easement granted in perpetuity, it is treated as a charitable contribution and not a sale or exchange, even though you keep a beneficial interest in the property affected by the easement. How do i file my taxes for last year   If you grant an easement on your property (for example, a right-of-way over it) under condemnation or threat of condemnation, you are considered to have made a forced sale, even though you keep the legal title. How do i file my taxes for last year Although you figure gain or loss on the easement in the same way as a sale of property, the gain or loss is treated as a gain or loss from a condemnation. How do i file my taxes for last year See Gain or Loss From Condemnations, later. How do i file my taxes for last year Property transferred to satisfy debt. How do i file my taxes for last year   A transfer of property to satisfy a debt is an exchange. How do i file my taxes for last year Note's maturity date extended. How do i file my taxes for last year   The extension of a note's maturity date is not treated as an exchange of an outstanding note for a new and different note. How do i file my taxes for last year Also, it is not considered a closed and completed transaction that would result in a gain or loss. How do i file my taxes for last year However, an extension will be treated as a taxable exchange of the outstanding note for a new and materially different note if the changes in the terms of the note are significant. How do i file my taxes for last year Each case must be determined by its own facts. How do i file my taxes for last year For more information, see Regulations section 1. How do i file my taxes for last year 1001-3. How do i file my taxes for last year Transfer on death. How do i file my taxes for last year   The transfer of property of a decedent to an executor or administrator of the estate, or to the heirs or beneficiaries, is not a sale or exchange or other disposition. How do i file my taxes for last year No taxable gain or deductible loss results from the transfer. How do i file my taxes for last year Bankruptcy. How do i file my taxes for last year   Generally, a transfer (other than by sale or exchange) of property from a debtor to a bankruptcy estate is not treated as a disposition. How do i file my taxes for last year Consequently, the transfer generally does not result in gain or loss. How do i file my taxes for last year For more information, see Publication 908, Bankruptcy Tax Guide. How do i file my taxes for last year Gain or Loss From Sales and Exchanges You usually realize gain or loss when property is sold or exchanged. How do i file my taxes for last year A gain is the amount you realize from a sale or exchange of property that is more than its adjusted basis. How do i file my taxes for last year A loss is the adjusted basis of the property that is more than the amount you realize. How do i file my taxes for last year   Table 1-1.

How do i file my taxes for last year THEN you have a. How do i file my taxes for last year . How do i file my taxes for last year . How do i file my taxes for last year Adjusted basis is more than the amount realized, Loss. How do i file my taxes for last year Amount realized is more than the adjusted basis, Gain. How do i file my taxes for last year Basis. How do i file my taxes for last year   You must know the basis of your property to determine whether you have a gain or loss from its sale or other disposition. How do i file my taxes for last year The basis of property you buy is usually its cost. How do i file my taxes for last year However, if you acquired the property by gift, inheritance, or in some way other than buying it, you must use a basis other than its cost. How do i file my taxes for last year See Basis Other Than Cost in Publication 551, Basis of Assets. How do i file my taxes for last year Special rules apply to property acquired from a decedent who died in 2010 and the executor made the election to file Form 8939, Allocation of Increase in Basis for Property Received From a Decedent. How do i file my taxes for last year See Publication 4895, Tax Treatment of Property Acquired From a Decedent Dying in 2010, for details. How do i file my taxes for last year Adjusted basis. How do i file my taxes for last year   The adjusted basis of property is your original cost or other basis plus (increased by) certain additions and minus (decreased by) certain deductions. How do i file my taxes for last year Increases include costs of any improvements having a useful life of more than 1 year. How do i file my taxes for last year Decreases include depreciation and casualty losses. How do i file my taxes for last year For more details and additional examples, see Adjusted Basis in Publication 551. How do i file my taxes for last year Amount realized. How do i file my taxes for last year   The amount you realize from a sale or exchange is the total of all money you receive plus the fair market value (defined below) of all property or services you receive. How do i file my taxes for last year The amount you realize also includes any of your liabilities that were assumed by the buyer and any liabilities to which the property you transferred is subject, such as real estate taxes or a mortgage. How do i file my taxes for last year Fair market value. How do i file my taxes for last year   Fair market value (FMV) is the price at which the property would change hands between a buyer and a seller when both have reasonable knowledge of all the necessary facts and neither is being forced to buy or sell. How do i file my taxes for last year If parties with adverse interests place a value on property in an arm's-length transaction, that is strong evidence of FMV. How do i file my taxes for last year If there is a stated price for services, this price is treated as the FMV unless there is evidence to the contrary. How do i file my taxes for last year Example. How do i file my taxes for last year You used a building in your business that cost you $70,000. How do i file my taxes for last year You made certain permanent improvements at a cost of $20,000 and deducted depreciation totaling $10,000. How do i file my taxes for last year You sold the building for $100,000 plus property having an FMV of $20,000. How do i file my taxes for last year The buyer assumed your real estate taxes of $3,000 and a mortgage of $17,000 on the building. How do i file my taxes for last year The selling expenses were $4,000. How do i file my taxes for last year Your gain on the sale is figured as follows. How do i file my taxes for last year Amount realized:     Cash $100,000   FMV of property received 20,000   Real estate taxes assumed by buyer 3,000   Mortgage assumed by  buyer 17,000   Total 140,000   Minus: Selling expenses 4,000 $136,000 Adjusted basis:     Cost of building $70,000   Improvements 20,000   Total $90,000   Minus: Depreciation 10,000   Adjusted basis   $80,000 Gain on sale $56,000 Amount recognized. How do i file my taxes for last year   Your gain or loss realized from a sale or exchange of property is usually a recognized gain or loss for tax purposes. How do i file my taxes for last year Recognized gains must be included in gross income. How do i file my taxes for last year Recognized losses are deductible from gross income. How do i file my taxes for last year However, your gain or loss realized from certain exchanges of property is not recognized for tax purposes. How do i file my taxes for last year See Nontaxable Exchanges, later. How do i file my taxes for last year Also, a loss from the sale or other disposition of property held for personal use is not deductible, except in the case of a casualty or theft. How do i file my taxes for last year Interest in property. How do i file my taxes for last year   The amount you realize from the disposition of a life interest in property, an interest in property for a set number of years, or an income interest in a trust is a recognized gain under certain circumstances. How do i file my taxes for last year If you received the interest as a gift, inheritance, or in a transfer from a spouse or former spouse incident to a divorce, the amount realized is a recognized gain. How do i file my taxes for last year Your basis in the property is disregarded. How do i file my taxes for last year This rule does not apply if all interests in the property are disposed of at the same time. How do i file my taxes for last year Example 1. How do i file my taxes for last year Your father dies and leaves his farm to you for life with a remainder interest to your younger brother. How do i file my taxes for last year You decide to sell your life interest in the farm. How do i file my taxes for last year The entire amount you receive is a recognized gain. How do i file my taxes for last year Your basis in the farm is disregarded. How do i file my taxes for last year Example 2. How do i file my taxes for last year The facts are the same as in Example 1, except that your brother joins you in selling the farm. How do i file my taxes for last year The entire interest in the property is sold, so your basis in the farm is not disregarded. How do i file my taxes for last year Your gain or loss is the difference between your share of the sales price and your adjusted basis in the farm. How do i file my taxes for last year Canceling a sale of real property. How do i file my taxes for last year   If you sell real property under a sales contract that allows the buyer to return the property for a full refund and the buyer does so, you may not have to recognize gain or loss on the sale. How do i file my taxes for last year If the buyer returns the property in the year of sale, no gain or loss is recognized. How do i file my taxes for last year This cancellation of the sale in the same year it occurred places both you and the buyer in the same positions you were in before the sale. How do i file my taxes for last year If the buyer returns the property in a later tax year, you must recognize gain (or loss, if allowed) in the year of the sale. How do i file my taxes for last year When the property is returned in a later year, you acquire a new basis in the property. How do i file my taxes for last year That basis is equal to the amount you pay to the buyer. How do i file my taxes for last year Bargain Sale If you sell or exchange property for less than fair market value with the intent of making a gift, the transaction is partly a sale or exchange and partly a gift. How do i file my taxes for last year You have a gain if the amount realized is more than your adjusted basis in the property. How do i file my taxes for last year However, you do not have a loss if the amount realized is less than the adjusted basis of the property. How do i file my taxes for last year Bargain sales to charity. How do i file my taxes for last year   A bargain sale of property to a charitable organization is partly a sale or exchange and partly a charitable contribution. How do i file my taxes for last year If a charitable deduction for the contribution is allowable, you must allocate your adjusted basis in the property between the part sold and the part contributed based on the fair market value of each. How do i file my taxes for last year The adjusted basis of the part sold is figured as follows. How do i file my taxes for last year Adjusted basis of entire property × Amount realized (fair market value of part sold)   Fair market value of entire property   Based on this allocation rule, you will have a gain even if the amount realized is not more than your adjusted basis in the property. How do i file my taxes for last year This allocation rule does not apply if a charitable contribution deduction is not allowable. How do i file my taxes for last year   See Publication 526, Charitable Contributions, for information on figuring your charitable contribution. How do i file my taxes for last year Example. How do i file my taxes for last year You sold property with a fair market value of $10,000 to a charitable organization for $2,000 and are allowed a deduction for your contribution. How do i file my taxes for last year Your adjusted basis in the property is $4,000. How do i file my taxes for last year Your gain on the sale is $1,200, figured as follows. How do i file my taxes for last year Sales price $2,000 Minus: Adjusted basis of part sold ($4,000 × ($2,000 ÷ $10,000)) 800 Gain on the sale $1,200 Property Used Partly for Business or Rental Generally, if you sell or exchange property you used partly for business or rental purposes and partly for personal purposes, you must figure the gain or loss on the sale or exchange as though you had sold two separate pieces of property. How do i file my taxes for last year You must subtract depreciation you took or could have taken from the basis of the business or rental part. How do i file my taxes for last year However, see the special rule below for a home used partly for business or rental. How do i file my taxes for last year You must allocate the selling price, selling expenses, and the basis of the property between the business or rental part and the personal part. How do i file my taxes for last year Gain or loss on the business or rental part of the property may be a capital gain or loss or an ordinary gain or loss, as discussed in chapter 3 under Section 1231 Gains and Losses. How do i file my taxes for last year Any gain on the personal part of the property is a capital gain. How do i file my taxes for last year You cannot deduct a loss on the personal part. How do i file my taxes for last year Home used partly for business or rental. How do i file my taxes for last year    If you use property partly as a home and partly for business or to produce rental income, the computation and treatment of any gain on the sale depends partly on whether the business or rental part of the property is part of your home or separate from it. How do i file my taxes for last year See Property Used Partly for Business or Rental, in Publication 523. How do i file my taxes for last year Property Changed to Business or Rental Use You cannot deduct a loss on the sale of property you purchased or constructed for use as your home and used as your home until the time of sale. How do i file my taxes for last year You can deduct a loss on the sale of property you acquired for use as your home but changed to business or rental property and used as business or rental property at the time of sale. How do i file my taxes for last year However, if the adjusted basis of the property at the time of the change was more than its fair market value, the loss you can deduct is limited. How do i file my taxes for last year Figure the loss you can deduct as follows. How do i file my taxes for last year Use the lesser of the property's adjusted basis or fair market value at the time of the change. How do i file my taxes for last year Add to (1) the cost of any improvements and other increases to basis since the change. How do i file my taxes for last year Subtract from (2) depreciation and any other decreases to basis since the change. How do i file my taxes for last year Subtract the amount you realized on the sale from the result in (3). How do i file my taxes for last year If the amount you realized is more than the result in (3), treat this result as zero. How do i file my taxes for last year The result in (4) is the loss you can deduct. How do i file my taxes for last year Example. How do i file my taxes for last year You changed your main home to rental property 5 years ago. How do i file my taxes for last year At the time of the change, the adjusted basis of your home was $75,000 and the fair market value was $70,000. How do i file my taxes for last year This year, you sold the property for $55,000. How do i file my taxes for last year You made no improvements to the property but you have depreciation expense of $12,620 over the 5 prior years. How do i file my taxes for last year Although your loss on the sale is $7,380 [($75,000 − $12,620) − $55,000], the amount you can deduct as a loss is limited to $2,380, figured as follows. How do i file my taxes for last year Lesser of adjusted basis or fair market value at time of the change $70,000 Plus: Cost of any improvements and any other additions to basis after the change -0-   70,000 Minus: Depreciation and any other decreases to basis after the change 12,620   57,380 Minus: Amount you realized from the sale 55,000 Deductible loss $2,380 Gain.

How do i file my taxes for last year 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. How do i file my taxes for last year Generally, abandonment is not treated as a sale or exchange of the property. How do i file my taxes for last year If the amount you realize (if any) is more than your adjusted basis, then you have a gain. How do i file my taxes for last year If your adjusted basis is more than the amount you realize (if any), then you have a loss. How do i file my taxes for last year Loss from abandonment of business or investment property is deductible as a loss. How do i file my taxes for last year A loss from an abandonment of business or investment property that is not treated as a sale or exchange generally is an ordinary loss. How do i file my taxes for last year This rule also applies to leasehold improvements the lessor made for the lessee that were abandoned. How do i file my taxes for last year If the property is foreclosed on or repossessed in lieu of abandonment, gain or loss is figured as discussed later under Foreclosure and Repossessions.

How do i file my taxes for last year This is true even if you voluntarily return the property to the lender. How do i file my taxes for last year You also may realize ordinary income from cancellation of debt if the loan balance is more than the fair market value of the property. How do i file my taxes for last year Buyer's (borrower's) gain or loss. How do i file my taxes for last year   You figure and report gain or loss from a foreclosure or repossession in the same way as gain or loss from a sale or exchange.

How do i file my taxes for last year See Gain or Loss From Sales and Exchanges, earlier. How do i file my taxes for last year You can use Table 1-2 to figure your gain or loss from a foreclosure or repossession. How do i file my taxes for last year Amount realized on a nonrecourse debt.

How do i file my taxes for last year The full canceled debt is included even if the fair market value of the property is less than the canceled debt. How do i file my taxes for last year Example 1. How do i file my taxes for last year Chris bought a new car for $15,000. How do i file my taxes for last year He paid $2,000 down and borrowed the remaining $13,000 from the dealer's credit company. How do i file my taxes for last year Chris is not personally liable for the loan (nonrecourse debt), but pledges the new car as security. How do i file my taxes for last year The credit company repossessed the car because he stopped making loan payments. How do i file my taxes for last year The balance due after taking into account the payments Chris made was $10,000. How do i file my taxes for last year The fair market value of the car when repossessed was $9,000. How do i file my taxes for last year The amount Chris realized on the repossession is $10,000. How do i file my taxes for last year That is the outstanding amount of the debt canceled by the repossession, even though the car's fair market value is less than $10,000. How do i file my taxes for last year Chris figures his gain or loss on the repossession by comparing the amount realized ($10,000) with his adjusted basis ($15,000). How do i file my taxes for last year He has a $5,000 nondeductible loss. How do i file my taxes for last year Example 2. How do i file my taxes for last year Abena paid $200,000 for her home. How do i file my taxes for last year She paid $15,000 down and borrowed the remaining $185,000 from a bank. How do i file my taxes for last year Abena is not personally liable for the loan (nonrecourse debt), but pledges the house as security. How do i file my taxes for last year The bank foreclosed on the loan because Abena stopped making payments. How do i file my taxes for last year When the bank foreclosed on the loan, the balance due was $180,000, the fair market value of the house was $170,000, and Abena's adjusted basis was $175,000 due to a casualty loss she had deducted. How do i file my taxes for last year The amount Abena realized on the foreclosure is $180,000, the balance due and debt canceled by the foreclosure. How do i file my taxes for last year She figures her gain or loss by comparing the amount realized ($180,000) with her adjusted basis ($175,000). How do i file my taxes for last year She has a $5,000 realized gain. How do i file my taxes for last year Amount realized on a recourse debt. How do i file my taxes for last year   If you are personally liable for the debt (recourse debt), the amount realized on the foreclosure or repossession includes the lesser of: The outstanding debt immediately before the transfer reduced by any amount for which you remain personally liable immediately after the transfer, or The fair market value of the transferred property. How do i file my taxes for last year You are treated as receiving ordinary income from the canceled debt for the part of the debt that is more than the fair market value. How do i file my taxes for last year The amount realized does not include the canceled debt that is your income from cancellation of debt. How do i file my taxes for last year See Cancellation of debt, below. How do i file my taxes for last year Seller's (lender's) gain or loss on repossession.

How do i file my taxes for last year In this case, the amount he realizes is $9,000. How do i file my taxes for last year This is the lesser of the canceled debt ($10,000) or the car's fair market value ($9,000). How do i file my taxes for last year Chris figures his gain or loss on the repossession by comparing the amount realized ($9,000) with his adjusted basis ($15,000).

How do i file my taxes for last year Involuntary Conversions An involuntary conversion occurs when your property is destroyed, stolen, condemned, or disposed of under the threat of condemnation and you receive other property or money in payment, such as insurance or a condemnation award. How do i file my taxes for last year Involuntary conversions are also called involuntary exchanges. How do i file my taxes for last year Gain or loss from an involuntary conversion of your property is usually recognized for tax purposes unless the property is your main home. How do i file my taxes for last year You report the gain or deduct the loss on your tax return for the year you realize it. How do i file my taxes for last year You cannot deduct a loss from an involuntary conversion of property you held for personal use unless the loss resulted from a casualty or theft. How do i file my taxes for last year However, depending on the type of property you receive, you may not have to report a gain on an involuntary conversion. How do i file my taxes for last year Generally, you do not report the gain if you receive property that is similar or related in service or use to the converted property. How do i file my taxes for last year Your basis for the new property is the same as your basis for the converted property. How do i file my taxes for last year This means that the gain is deferred until a taxable sale or exchange occurs. How do i file my taxes for last year If you receive money or property that is not similar or related in service or use to the involuntarily converted property and you buy qualifying replacement property within a certain period of time, you can elect to postpone reporting the gain on the property purchased. How do i file my taxes for last year This publication explains the treatment of a gain or loss from a condemnation or disposition under the threat of condemnation. How do i file my taxes for last year If you have a gain or loss from the destruction or theft of property, see Publication 547. How do i file my taxes for last year Condemnations A condemnation is the process by which private property is legally taken for public use without the owner's consent. How do i file my taxes for last year The property may be taken by the federal government, a state government, a political subdivision, or a private organization that has the power to legally take it. How do i file my taxes for last year The owner receives a condemnation award (money or property) in exchange for the property taken. How do i file my taxes for last year A condemnation is like a forced sale, the owner being the seller and the condemning authority being the buyer. How do i file my taxes for last year Example. How do i file my taxes for last year A local government authorized to acquire land for public parks informed you that it wished to acquire your property. How do i file my taxes for last year After the local government took action to condemn your property, you went to court to keep it. How do i file my taxes for last year But, the court decided in favor of the local government, which took your property and paid you an amount fixed by the court. How do i file my taxes for last year This is a condemnation of private property for public use. How do i file my taxes for last year Threat of condemnation. How do i file my taxes for last year   A threat of condemnation exists if a representative of a government body or a public official authorized to acquire property for public use informs you that the government body or official has decided to acquire your property. How do i file my taxes for last year You must have reasonable grounds to believe that, if you do not sell voluntarily, your property will be condemned. How do i file my taxes for last year   The sale of your property to someone other than the condemning authority will also qualify as an involuntary conversion, provided you have reasonable grounds to believe that your property will be condemned. How do i file my taxes for last year If the buyer of this property knows at the time of purchase that it will be condemned and sells it to the condemning authority, this sale also qualifies as an involuntary conversion. How do i file my taxes for last year Reports of condemnation. How do i file my taxes for last year   A threat of condemnation exists if you learn of a decision to acquire your property for public use through a report in a newspaper or other news medium, and this report is confirmed by a representative of the government body or public official involved. How do i file my taxes for last year You must have reasonable grounds to believe that they will take necessary steps to condemn your property if you do not sell voluntarily. How do i file my taxes for last year If you relied on oral statements made by a government representative or public official, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) may ask you to get written confirmation of the statements. How do i file my taxes for last year Example. How do i file my taxes for last year Your property lies along public utility lines. How do i file my taxes for last year The utility company has the authority to condemn your property. How do i file my taxes for last year The company informs you that it intends to acquire your property by negotiation or condemnation. How do i file my taxes for last year A threat of condemnation exists when you receive the notice. How do i file my taxes for last year Related property voluntarily sold. How do i file my taxes for last year   A voluntary sale of your property may be treated as a forced sale that qualifies as an involuntary conversion if the property had a substantial economic relationship to property of yours that was condemned. How do i file my taxes for last year A substantial economic relationship exists if together the properties were one economic unit. How do i file my taxes for last year You also must show that the condemned property could not reasonably or adequately be replaced. How do i file my taxes for last year You can elect to postpone reporting the gain by buying replacement property. How do i file my taxes for last year See Postponement of Gain, later. How do i file my taxes for last year Gain or Loss From Condemnations If your property was condemned or disposed of under the threat of condemnation, figure your gain or loss by comparing the adjusted basis of your condemned property with your net condemnation award. How do i file my taxes for last year If your net condemnation award is more than the adjusted basis of the condemned property, you have a gain. How do i file my taxes for last year You can postpone reporting gain from a condemnation if you buy replacement property. How do i file my taxes for last year If only part of your property is condemned, you can treat the cost of restoring the remaining part to its former usefulness as the cost of replacement property. How do i file my taxes for last year See Postponement of Gain, later. How do i file my taxes for last year If your net condemnation award is less than your adjusted basis, you have a loss. How do i file my taxes for last year If your loss is from property you held for personal use, you cannot deduct it. How do i file my taxes for last year You must report any deductible loss in the tax year it happened. How do i file my taxes for last year You can use Part 2 of Table 1-3 to figure your gain or loss from a condemnation award. How do i file my taxes for last year Main home condemned. How do i file my taxes for last year   If you have a gain because your main home is condemned, you generally can exclude the gain from your income as if you had sold or exchanged your home. How do i file my taxes for last year You may be able to exclude up to $250,000 of the gain (up to $500,000 if married filing jointly). How do i file my taxes for last year For information on this exclusion, see Publication 523. How do i file my taxes for last year If your gain is more than you can exclude but you buy replacement property, you may be able to postpone reporting the rest of the gain.

How do i file my taxes for last year The state paid you only $148,000 because it paid $50,000 to your mortgage holder and $2,000 accrued real estate taxes. How do i file my taxes for last year You are considered to have received the entire $200,000 as a condemnation award. How do i file my taxes for last year Interest on award. How do i file my taxes for last year   If the condemning authority pays you interest for its delay in paying your award, it is not part of the condemnation award. How do i file my taxes for last year You must report the interest separately as ordinary income. How do i file my taxes for last year Payments to relocate. How do i file my taxes for last year   Payments you receive to relocate and replace housing because you have been displaced from your home, business, or farm as a result of federal or federally assisted programs are not part of the condemnation award. How do i file my taxes for last year Do not include them in your income. How do i file my taxes for last year Replacement housing payments used to buy new property are included in the property's basis as part of your cost. How do i file my taxes for last year Net condemnation award. How do i file my taxes for last year   A net condemnation award is the total award you received, or are considered to have received, for the condemned property minus your expenses of obtaining the award. How do i file my taxes for last year If only a part of your property was condemned, you also must reduce the award by any special assessment levied against the part of the property you retain. How do i file my taxes for last year This is discussed later under Special assessment taken out of award. How do i file my taxes for last year Severance damages. How do i file my taxes for last year    Severance damages are not part of the award paid for the property condemned. How do i file my taxes for last year They are paid to you if part of your property is condemned and the value of the part you keep is decreased because of the condemnation. How do i file my taxes for last year   For example, you may receive severance damages if your property is subject to flooding because you sell flowage easement rights (the condemned property) under threat of condemnation. How do i file my taxes for last year Severance damages also may be given to you if, because part of your property is condemned for a highway, you must replace fences, dig new wells or ditches, or plant trees to restore your remaining property to the same usefulness it had before the condemnation. How do i file my taxes for last year   The contracting parties should agree on the specific amount of severance damages in writing. How do i file my taxes for last year If this is not done, all proceeds from the condemning authority are considered awarded for your condemned property. How do i file my taxes for last year   You cannot make a completely new allocation of the total award after the transaction is completed. How do i file my taxes for last year However, you can show how much of the award both parties intended for severance damages. How do i file my taxes for last year The severance damages part of the award is determined from all the facts and circumstances. How do i file my taxes for last year Example. How do i file my taxes for last year You sold part of your property to the state under threat of condemnation. How do i file my taxes for last year The contract you and the condemning authority signed showed only the total purchase price. How do i file my taxes for last year It did not specify a fixed sum for severance damages. How do i file my taxes for last year However, at settlement, the condemning authority gave you closing papers showing clearly the part of the purchase price that was for severance damages. How do i file my taxes for last year You may treat this part as severance damages. How do i file my taxes for last year Treatment of severance damages. How do i file my taxes for last year   Your net severance damages are treated as the amount realized from an involuntary conversion of the remaining part of your property. How do i file my taxes for last year Use them to reduce the basis of the remaining property. How do i file my taxes for last year If the amount of severance damages is based on damage to a specific part of the property you kept, reduce the basis of only that part by the net severance damages. How do i file my taxes for last year   If your net severance damages are more than the basis of your retained property, you have a gain. How do i file my taxes for last year You may be able to postpone reporting the gain. How do i file my taxes for last year See Postponement of Gain, later. How do i file my taxes for last year    You can use Part 1 of Table 1-3 to figure any gain from severance damages and to refigure the adjusted basis of the remaining part of your property. How do i file my taxes for last year Net severance damages. How do i file my taxes for last year   To figure your net severance damages, you first must reduce your severance damages by your expenses in obtaining the damages. How do i file my taxes for last year You then reduce them by any special assessment (described later) levied against the remaining part of the property and retained out of the award by the condemning authority. How do i file my taxes for last year The balance is your net severance damages. How do i file my taxes for last year Expenses of obtaining a condemnation award and severance damages. How do i file my taxes for last year   Subtract the expenses of obtaining a condemnation award, such as legal, engineering, and appraisal fees, from the total award. How do i file my taxes for last year Also, subtract the expenses of obtaining severance damages, which may include similar expenses, from the severance damages paid to you. How do i file my taxes for last year If you cannot determine which part of your expenses is for each part of the condemnation proceeds, you must make a proportionate allocation. How do i file my taxes for last year Example. How do i file my taxes for last year You receive a condemnation award and severance damages. How do i file my taxes for last year One-fourth of the total was designated as severance damages in your agreement with the condemning authority. How do i file my taxes for last year You had legal expenses for the entire condemnation proceeding. How do i file my taxes for last year You cannot determine how much of your legal expenses is for each part of the condemnation proceeds. How do i file my taxes for last year You must allocate one-fourth of your legal expenses to the severance damages and the other three-fourths to the condemnation award. How do i file my taxes for last year Special assessment retained out of award. How do i file my taxes for last year   When only part of your property is condemned, a special assessment levied against the remaining property may be retained by the governing body out of your condemnation award. How do i file my taxes for last year An assessment may be levied if the remaining part of your property benefited by the improvement resulting from the condemnation. How do i file my taxes for last year Examples of improvements that may cause a special assessment are widening a street and installing a sewer. How do i file my taxes for last year   To figure your net condemnation award, you must reduce the amount of the award by the assessment retained out of the award. How do i file my taxes for last year Example. How do i file my taxes for last year To widen the street in front of your home, the city condemned a 25-foot deep strip of your land. How do i file my taxes for last year You were awarded $5,000 for this and spent $300 to get the award. How do i file my taxes for last year Before paying the award, the city levied a special assessment of $700 for the street improvement against your remaining property. How do i file my taxes for last year The city then paid you only $4,300. How do i file my taxes for last year Your net award is $4,000 ($5,000 total award minus $300 expenses in obtaining the award and $700 for the special assessment retained). How do i file my taxes for last year If the $700 special assessment was not retained out of the award and you were paid $5,000, your net award would be $4,700 ($5,000 − $300). How do i file my taxes for last year The net award would not change, even if you later paid the assessment from the amount you received. How do i file my taxes for last year Severance damages received. How do i file my taxes for last year   If severance damages are included in the condemnation proceeds, the special assessment retained out of the severance damages is first used to reduce the severance damages. How do i file my taxes for last year Any balance of the special assessment is used to reduce the condemnation award. How do i file my taxes for last year Example. How do i file my taxes for last year You were awarded $4,000 for the condemnation of your property and $1,000 for severance damages. How do i file my taxes for last year You spent $300 to obtain the severance damages. How do i file my taxes for last year A special assessment of $800 was retained out of the award. How do i file my taxes for last year The $1,000 severance damages are reduced to zero by first subtracting the $300 expenses and then $700 of the special assessment. How do i file my taxes for last year Your $4,000 condemnation award is reduced by the $100 balance of the special assessment, leaving a $3,900 net condemnation award. How do i file my taxes for last year Part business or rental. How do i file my taxes for last year   If you used part of your condemned property as your home and part as business or rental property, treat each part as a separate property. How do i file my taxes for last year Figure your gain or loss separately because gain or loss on each part may be treated differently. How do i file my taxes for last year   Some examples of this type of property are a building in which you live and operate a grocery, and a building in which you live on the first floor and rent out the second floor. How do i file my taxes for last year Example. How do i file my taxes for last year You sold your building for $24,000 under threat of condemnation to a public utility company that had the authority to condemn. How do i file my taxes for last year You rented half the building and lived in the other half. How do i file my taxes for last year You paid $25,000 for the building and spent an additional $1,000 for a new roof. How do i file my taxes for last year You claimed allowable depreciation of $4,600 on the rental half. How do i file my taxes for last year You spent $200 in legal expenses to obtain the condemnation award. How do i file my taxes for last year Figure your gain or loss as follows. How do i file my taxes for last year     Resi- dential Part Busi- ness Part 1) Condemnation award received $12,000 $12,000 2) Minus: Legal expenses, $200 100 100 3) Net condemnation award $11,900 $11,900 4) Adjusted basis:       ½ of original cost, $25,000 $12,500 $12,500   Plus: ½ of cost of roof, $1,000 500 500   Total $13,000 $13,000 5) Minus: Depreciation   4,600 6) Adjusted basis, business part   $8,400 7) (Loss) on residential property ($1,100)   8) Gain on business property $3,500 The loss on the residential part of the property is not deductible. How do i file my taxes for last year Postponement of Gain Do not report the gain on condemned property if you receive only property that is similar or related in service or use to the condemned property. How do i file my taxes for last year Your basis for the new property is the same as your basis for the old. How do i file my taxes for last year Money or unlike property received. How do i file my taxes for last year   You ordinarily must report the gain if you receive money or unlike property. How do i file my taxes for last year You can elect to postpone reporting the gain if you buy property that is similar or related in service or use to the condemned property within the replacement period, discussed later. How do i file my taxes for last year You also can elect to postpone reporting the gain if you buy a controlling interest (at least 80%) in a corporation owning property that is similar or related in service or use to the condemned property. How do i file my taxes for last year See Controlling interest in a corporation, later. How do i file my taxes for last year   To postpone reporting all the gain, you must buy replacement property costing at least as much as the amount realized for the condemned property. How do i file my taxes for last year If the cost of the replacement property is less than the amount realized, you must report the gain up to the unspent part of the amount realized. How do i file my taxes for last year   The basis of the replacement property is its cost, reduced by the postponed gain. How do i file my taxes for last year Also, if your replacement property is stock in a corporation that owns property similar or related in service or use, the corporation generally will reduce its basis in its assets by the amount by which you reduce your basis in the stock. How do i file my taxes for last year See Controlling interest in a corporation, later. How do i file my taxes for last year You can use Part 3 of Table 1-3 to figure the gain you must report and your postponed gain. How do i file my taxes for last year Postponing gain on severance damages. How do i file my taxes for last year   If you received severance damages for part of your property because another part was condemned and you buy replacement property, you can elect to postpone reporting gain. How do i file my taxes for last year See Treatment of severance damages, earlier. How do i file my taxes for last year You can postpone reporting all your gain if the replacement property costs at least as much as your net severance damages plus your net condemnation award (if resulting in gain). How do i file my taxes for last year   You also can make this election if you spend the severance damages, together with other money you received for the condemned property (if resulting in gain), to acquire nearby property that will allow you to continue your business. How do i file my taxes for last year If suitable nearby property is not available and you are forced to sell the remaining property and relocate in order to continue your business, see Postponing gain on the sale of related property, next. How do i file my taxes for last year   If you restore the remaining property to its former usefulness, you can treat the cost of restoring it as the cost of replacement property. How do i file my taxes for last year Postponing gain on the sale of related property. How do i file my taxes for last year   If you sell property that is related to the condemned property and then buy replacement property, you can elect to postpone reporting gain on the sale. How do i file my taxes for last year You must meet the requirements explained earlier under Related property voluntarily sold. How do i file my taxes for last year You can postpone reporting all your gain if the replacement property costs at least as much as the amount realized from the sale plus your net condemnation award (if resulting in gain) plus your net severance damages, if any (if resulting in gain). How do i file my taxes for last year Buying replacement property from a related person. How do i file my taxes for last year   Certain taxpayers cannot postpone reporting gain from a condemnation if they buy the replacement property from a related person. How do i file my taxes for last year For information on related persons, see Nondeductible Loss under Sales and Exchanges Between Related Persons in chapter 2. How do i file my taxes for last year   This rule applies to the following taxpayers. How do i file my taxes for last year C corporations. How do i file my taxes for last year Partnerships in which more than 50% of the capital or profits interest is owned by  C corporations. How do i file my taxes for last year All others (including individuals, partnerships (other than those in (2)), and S corporations) if the total realized gain for the tax year on all involuntarily converted properties on which there is realized gain of more than $100,000. How do i file my taxes for last year   For taxpayers described in (3) above, gains cannot be offset with any losses when determining whether the total gain is more than $100,000. How do i file my taxes for last year If the property is owned by a partnership, the $100,000 limit applies to the partnership and each partner. How do i file my taxes for last year If the property is owned by an S corporation, the $100,000 limit applies to the S corporation and each shareholder. How do i file my taxes for last year Exception. How do i file my taxes for last year   This rule does not apply if the related person acquired the property from an unrelated person within the replacement period. How do i file my taxes for last year Advance payment. How do i file my taxes for last year   If you pay a contractor in advance to build your replacement property, you have not bought replacement property unless it is finished before the end of the replacement period (discussed later). How do i file my taxes for last year Replacement property. How do i file my taxes for last year   To postpone reporting gain, you must buy replacement property for the specific purpose of replacing your condemned property. How do i file my taxes for last year You do not have to use the actual funds from the condemnation award to acquire the replacement property. How do i file my taxes for last year Property you acquire by gift or inheritance does not qualify as replacement property. How do i file my taxes for last year Similar or related in service or use. How do i file my taxes for last year   Your replacement property must be similar or related in service or use to the property it replaces. How do i file my taxes for last year   If the condemned property is real property you held for productive use in your trade or business or for investment (other than property held mainly for sale), like-kind property to be held either for productive use in trade or business or for investment will be treated as property similar or related in service or use. How do i file my taxes for last year For a discussion of like-kind property, see Like-Kind Property under Like-Kind Exchanges, later. How do i file my taxes for last year Owner-user. How do i file my taxes for last year   If you are an owner-user, similar or related in service or use means that replacement property must function in the same way as the property it replaces. How do i file my taxes for last year Example. How do i file my taxes for last year Your home was condemned and you invested the proceeds from the condemnation in a grocery store. How do i file my taxes for last year Your replacement property is not similar or related in service or use to the condemned property. How do i file my taxes for last year To be similar or related in service or use, your replacement property must also be used by you as your home. How do i file my taxes for last year Owner-investor. How do i file my taxes for last year   If you are an owner-investor, similar or related in service or use means that any replacement property must have the same relationship of services or uses to you as the property it replaces. How do i file my taxes for last year You decide this by determining all the following information. How do i file my taxes for last year Whether the properties are of similar service to you. How do i file my taxes for last year The nature of the business risks connected with the properties. How do i file my taxes for last year What the properties demand of you in the way of management, service, and relations to your tenants. How do i file my taxes for last year Example. How do i file my taxes for last year You owned land and a building you rented to a manufacturing company. How do i file my taxes for last year The building was condemned. How do i file my taxes for last year During the replacement period, you had a new building built on other land you already owned. How do i file my taxes for last year You rented out the new building for use as a wholesale grocery warehouse. How do i file my taxes for last year The replacement property is also rental property, so the two properties are considered similar or related in service or use if there is a similarity in all the following areas. How do i file my taxes for last year Your management activities. How do i file my taxes for last year The amount and kind of services you provide to your tenants. How do i file my taxes for last year The nature of your business risks connected with the properties. How do i file my taxes for last year Leasehold replaced with fee simple property. How do i file my taxes for last year   Fee simple property you will use in your trade or business or for investment can qualify as replacement property that is similar or related in service or use to a condemned leasehold if you use it in the same business and for the identical purpose as the condemned leasehold. How do i file my taxes for last year   A fee simple property interest generally is a property interest that entitles the owner to the entire property with unconditional power to dispose of it during his or her lifetime. How do i file my taxes for last year A leasehold is property held under a lease, usually for a term of years. How do i file my taxes for last year Outdoor advertising display replaced with real property. How do i file my taxes for last year   You can elect to treat an outdoor advertising display as real property. How do i file my taxes for last year If you make this election and you replace the display with real property in which you hold a different kind of interest, your replacement property can qualify as like-kind property. How do i file my taxes for last year For example, real property bought to replace a destroyed billboard and leased property on which the billboard was located qualify as property of a like-kind. How do i file my taxes for last year   You can make this election only if you did not claim a section 179 deduction for the display. How do i file my taxes for last year You cannot cancel this election unless you get the consent of the IRS. How do i file my taxes for last year   An outdoor advertising display is a sign or device rigidly assembled and permanently attached to the ground, a building, or any other permanent structure used to display a commercial or other advertisement to the public. How do i file my taxes for last year Substituting replacement property. How do i file my taxes for last year   Once you designate certain property as replacement property on your tax return, you cannot substitute other qualified property. How do i file my taxes for last year But, if your previously designated replacement property does not qualify, you can substitute qualified property if you acquire it within the replacement period. How do i file my taxes for last year Controlling interest in a corporation. How do i file my taxes for last year   You can replace property by acquiring a controlling interest in a corporation that owns property similar or related in service or use to your condemned property. How do i file my taxes for last year You have controlling interest if you own stock having at least 80% of the combined voting power of all classes of stock entitled to vote and at least 80% of the total number of shares of all other classes of stock of the corporation. How do i file my taxes for last year Basis adjustment to corporation's property. How do i file my taxes for last year   The basis of property held by the corporation at the time you acquired control must be reduced by your postponed gain, if any. How do i file my taxes for last year You are not required to reduce the adjusted basis of the corporation's properties below your adjusted basis in the corporation's stock (determined after reduction by your postponed gain). How do i file my taxes for last year   Allocate this reduction to the following classes of property in the order shown below. How do i file my taxes for last year Property that is similar or related in service or use to the condemned property. How do i file my taxes for last year Depreciable property not reduced in (1). How do i file my taxes for last year All other property. How do i file my taxes for last year If two or more properties fall in the same class, allocate the reduction to each property in proportion to the adjusted basis of all the properties in that class. How do i file my taxes for last year The reduced basis of any single property cannot be less than zero. How do i file my taxes for last year Main home replaced. How do i file my taxes for last year   If your gain from a condemnation of your main home is more than you can exclude from your income (see Main home condemned under Gain or Loss From Condemnations, earlier), you can postpone reporting the rest of the gain by buying replacement property that is similar or related in service or use. How do i file my taxes for last year The replacement property must cost at least as much as the amount realized from the condemnation minus the excluded gain. How do i file my taxes for last year   You must reduce the basis of your replacement property by the postponed gain. How do i file my taxes for last year Also, if you postpone reporting any part of your gain under these rules, you are treated as having owned and used the replacement property as your main home for the period you owned and used the condemned property as your main home. How do i file my taxes for last year Example. How do i file my taxes for last year City authorities condemned your home that you had used as a personal residence for 5 years prior to the condemnation. How do i file my taxes for last year The city paid you a condemnation award of $400,000. How do i file my taxes for last year Your adjusted basis in the property was $80,000. How do i file my taxes for last year You realize a gain of $320,000 ($400,000 − $80,000). How do i file my taxes for last year You purchased a new home for $100,000. How do i file my taxes for last year You can exclude $250,000 of the realized gain from your gross income. How do i file my taxes for last year The amount realized is then treated as being $150,000 ($400,000 − $250,000) and the gain realized is $70,000 ($150,000 amount realized − $80,000 adjusted basis). How do i file my taxes for last year You must recognize $50,000 of the gain ($150,000 amount realized − $100,000 cost of new home). How do i file my taxes for last year The remaining $20,000 of realized gain is postponed. How do i file my taxes for last year Your basis in the new home is $80,000 ($100,000 cost − $20,000 gain postponed). How do i file my taxes for last year Replacement period. How do i file my taxes for last year   To postpone reporting your gain from a condemnation, you must buy replacement property within a certain period of time. How do i file my taxes for last year This is the replacement period. How do i file my taxes for last year   The replacement period for a condemnation begins on the earlier of the following dates. How do i file my taxes for last year The date on which you disposed of the condemned property. How do i file my taxes for last year The date on which the threat of condemnation began. How do i file my taxes for last year   The replacement period generally ends 2 years after the end of the first tax year in which any part of the gain on the condemnation is realized. How do i file my taxes for last year However, see the exceptions below. How do i file my taxes for last year Three-year replacement period for certain property. How do i file my taxes for last year   If real property held for use in a trade or business or for investment (not including property held primarily for sale) is condemned, the replacement period ends 3 years after the end of the first tax year in which any part of the gain on the condemnation is realized. How do i file my taxes for last year However, this 3-year replacement period cannot be used if you replace the condemned property by acquiring control of a corporation owning property that is similar or related in service or use. How do i file my taxes for last year Five-year replacement period for certain property. How do i file my taxes for last year   The replacement period ends 5 years after the end of the first tax year in which any part of the gain is realized on the compulsory or involuntary conversion of the following qualified property. How do i file my taxes for last year Property in any Midwestern disaster area compulsorily or involuntarily converted on or after the applicable disaster date as a result of severe storms, tornadoes, or flooding, but only if substantially all of the use of the replacement property is in a Midwestern disaster area. How do i file my taxes for last year Property in the Kansas disaster area compulsorily or involuntarily converted after May 3, 2007, but only if substantially all of the use of the replacement property is in the Kansas disaster area. How do i file my taxes for last year Property in the Hurricane Katrina disaster area compulsorily or involuntarily converted after August 24, 2005, as a result of Hurricane Katrina, but only if substantially all of the use of the replacement property is in the Hurricane Katrina disaster area. How do i file my taxes for last year Extended replacement period for taxpayers affected by other federally declared disasters. How do i file my taxes for last year    If you are affected by a federally declared disaster, the IRS may grant disaster relief by extending the periods to perform certain tax-related acts for 2013, including the replacement period, by up to one year.

How do i file my taxes for last year   Generally, if the sale or exchange of livestock is due to drought, flood, or other weather-related conditions in an area eligible for federal assistance, the replacement period ends 4 years after the close of the first tax year in which you realize any part of your gain from the sale or exchange. How do i file my taxes for last year    If the weather-related conditions continue for longer than 3 years, the replacement period may be extended on a regional basis until the end of your first drought-free year for the applicable region.

How do i file my taxes for last year    Each year, the IRS publishes a list of counties, districts, cities, or parishes for which exceptional, extreme, or severe drought was reported during the preceding 12 months. How do i file my taxes for last year If you qualified for a 4-year replacement period for livestock sold or exchanged on account of drought and your replacement period is scheduled to expire at the end of 2013 (or at the end of the tax year that includes August 31, 2013), see Notice 2013-62.

How do i file my taxes for last year The replacement period will be extended under Notice 2006-82 if the applicable region is on the list included in Notice 2013-62. How do i file my taxes for last year Determining when gain is realized. How do i file my taxes for last year   If you are a cash basis taxpayer, you realize gain when you receive payments that are more than your basis in the property. How do i file my taxes for last year If the condemning authority makes deposits with the court, you realize gain when you withdraw (or have the right to withdraw) amounts that are more than your basis. How do i file my taxes for last year   This applies even if the amounts received are only partial or advance payments and the full award has not yet been determined. How do i file my taxes for last year A replacement will be too late if you wait for a final determination that does not take place in the applicable replacement period after you first realize gain. How do i file my taxes for last year   For accrual basis taxpayers, gain (if any) accrues in the earlier year when either of the following occurs. How do i file my taxes for last year All events have occurred that fix the right to the condemnation award and the amount can be determined with reasonable accuracy. How do i file my taxes for last year All or part of the award is actually or constructively received. How do i file my taxes for last year For example, if you have an absolute right to a part of a condemnation award when it is deposited with the court, the amount deposited accrues in the year the deposit is made even though the full amount of the award is still contested. How do i file my taxes for last year Replacement property bought before the condemnation. How do i file my taxes for last year   If you buy your replacement property after there is a threat of condemnation but before the actual condemnation and you still hold the replacement property at the time of the condemnation, you have bought your replacement property within the replacement period. How do i file my taxes for last year Property you acquire before there is a threat of condemnation does not qualify as replacement property acquired within the replacement period. How do i file my taxes for last year Example. How do i file my taxes for last year On April 3, 2012, city authorities notified you that your property would be condemned. How do i file my taxes for last year On June 5, 2012, you acquired property to replace the property to be condemned. How do i file my taxes for last year You still had the new property when the city took possession of your old property on September 4, 2013.
