Irs 1040 ez Taxable Medical Devices The following discussion of manufacturers taxes applies to the tax on: Sport fishing equipment; Fishing rods and fishing poles; Electric outboard motors; Fishing tackle boxes; Bows, quivers, broadheads, and points; Arrow shafts; Coal; Taxable tires; Gas guzzler automobiles; and Vaccines. Irs 1040 ez Manufacturer. Irs 1040 ez   The term “manufacturer” includes a producer or importer. Irs 1040 ez A manufacturer is any person who produces a taxable article from new or raw material, or from scrap, salvage, or junk material, by processing or changing the form of an article or by combining or assembling two or more articles. Irs 1040 ez If you furnish the materials and keep title to those materials and to the finished article, you are considered the manufacturer even though another person actually manufactures the taxable article. Irs 1040 ez   A manufacturer who sells a taxable article in knockdown (unassembled) condition is liable for the tax. Irs 1040 ez The person who buys these component parts and assembles a taxable article may also be liable for tax as a further manufacturer depending on the labor, material, and overhead required to assemble the completed article if the article is assembled for business use. Irs 1040 ez Importer. Irs 1040 ez   An importer is a person who brings a taxable article into the United States, or withdraws a taxable article from a customs bonded warehouse for sale or use in the United States. Irs 1040 ez Sale. Irs 1040 ez   A sale is the transfer of the title to, or the substantial incidents of ownership in, an article to a buyer for consideration that may consist of money, services, or other things. Irs 1040 ez Use considered sale. Irs 1040 ez   A manufacturer who uses a taxable article is liable for the tax in the same manner as if it were sold. Irs 1040 ez Lease considered sale. Irs 1040 ez   The lease of an article (including any renewal or extension of the lease) by the manufacturer is generally considered a taxable sale. Irs 1040 ez However, for the gas guzzler tax, only the first lease (excluding any renewal or extension) of the automobile by the manufacturer is considered a sale. Irs 1040 ez Manufacturers taxes based on sale price. Irs 1040 ez   The manufacturers taxes imposed on the sale of sport fishing equipment, electric outboard motors, and bows are based on the sale price of the article. Irs 1040 ez The taxes imposed on coal are based either on the sale price or the weight. Irs 1040 ez   The price for which an article is sold includes the total consideration paid for the article, whether that consideration is in the form of money, services, or other things. Irs 1040 ez However, you include certain charges made when a taxable article is sold and you exclude others. Irs 1040 ez To figure the price on which you base the tax, use the following rules. Irs 1040 ez Include both the following charges in the price. Irs 1040 ez Any charge for coverings or containers (regardless of their nature). Irs 1040 ez Any charge incident to placing the article in a condition packed ready for shipment. Irs 1040 ez Exclude all the following amounts from the price. Irs 1040 ez The manufacturers excise tax, whether or not it is stated as a separate charge. Irs 1040 ez The transportation charges pursuant to the sale. Irs 1040 ez The cost of transportation of goods to a warehouse before their bona fide sale is not excludable. Irs 1040 ez Delivery, insurance, installation, retail dealer preparation charges, and other charges you incur in placing the article in the hands of the purchaser under a bona fide sale. Irs 1040 ez Discounts, rebates, and similar allowances actually granted to the purchaser. Irs 1040 ez Local advertising charges. Irs 1040 ez A charge made separately when the article is sold and that qualifies as a charge for “local advertising” may, within certain limits, be excluded from the sale price. Irs 1040 ez Charges for warranty paid at the purchaser's option. Irs 1040 ez However, a charge for a warranty of an article that the manufacturer requires the purchaser to pay to obtain the article is included in the sale price on which the tax is figured. Irs 1040 ez Bonus goods. Irs 1040 ez   Allocate the sale price if you give free nontaxable goods with the purchase of taxable merchandise. Irs 1040 ez Figure the tax only on the sale price attributable to the taxable articles. Irs 1040 ez Example. Irs 1040 ez A manufacturer sells a quantity of taxable articles and gives the purchaser certain nontaxable articles as a bonus. Irs 1040 ez The sale price of the shipment is $1,500. Irs 1040 ez The normal sale price is $2,000: $1,500 for the taxable articles and $500 for the nontaxable articles. Irs 1040 ez Since the taxable items represent 75% of the normal sale price, the tax is based on 75% of the actual sale price, or $1,125 (75% of $1,500). Irs 1040 ez The remaining $375 is allocated to the nontaxable articles. Irs 1040 ez Taxable Event Tax attaches when the title to the article sold passes from the manufacturer to the buyer. Irs 1040 ez When the title passes depends on the intention of the parties as gathered from the contract of sale. Irs 1040 ez In the absence of expressed intention, the legal rules of presumption followed in the jurisdiction where the sale occurs determine when title passes. Irs 1040 ez If the taxable article is used by the manufacturer, the tax attaches at the time use begins. Irs 1040 ez The manufacturer is liable for the tax. Irs 1040 ez Partial payments. Irs 1040 ez   The tax applies to each partial payment received when taxable articles are: Leased, Sold conditionally, Sold on installment with chattel mortgage, or Sold on installment with title to pass in the future. Irs 1040 ez To figure the tax, multiply the partial payment by the tax rate in effect at the time of the payment. Irs 1040 ez Exemptions The following sales by the manufacturer are exempt from the manufacturers tax. Irs 1040 ez Sale of an article to a state or local government for the exclusive use of the state or local government. Irs 1040 ez This exemption does not apply to the taxes on coal, gas guzzlers, and vaccines. Irs 1040 ez State is defined in Definitions in chapter 1. Irs 1040 ez Sale of an article to a nonprofit educational organization for its exclusive use. Irs 1040 ez This exemption does not apply to the taxes on coal, gas guzzlers, and vaccines. Irs 1040 ez Nonprofit educational organization is defined under Communications Tax in chapter 4. Irs 1040 ez Sale of an article to a qualified blood collector organization. Irs 1040 ez This exemption does not apply to gas guzzlers, recreational equipment, and vaccines. Irs 1040 ez Qualified blood collector organizations are defined under Communications Tax in chapter 4. Irs 1040 ez Sale of an article for use by the purchaser as supplies for vessels. Irs 1040 ez This exemption does not apply to the taxes on coal and vaccines. Irs 1040 ez Supplies for vessels means ships' stores, sea stores, or legitimate equipment on vessels of war of the United States or any foreign nation, vessels employed in the fisheries or whaling business, or vessels actually engaged in foreign trade. Irs 1040 ez Sale of an article for use by the purchaser for further manufacture, or for resale by the purchaser to a second purchaser for use by the second purchaser for further manufacture. Irs 1040 ez This exemption does not apply to the tax on coal and tires. Irs 1040 ez Use for further manufacture means use in the manufacture or production of an article subject to the manufacturers excise taxes. Irs 1040 ez If you buy articles tax free and resell or use them other than in the manufacture of another article, you are liable for the tax on their resale or use just as if you had manufactured and sold them. Irs 1040 ez Sale of an article for export or for resale by the purchaser to a second purchaser for export. Irs 1040 ez The article may be exported to a foreign country or to a possession of the United States. Irs 1040 ez A vaccine shipped to a possession of the United States is not considered to be exported. Irs 1040 ez If an article is sold tax free for export and the manufacturer does not receive proof of export, described later, the manufacturer is liable for the tax. Irs 1040 ez Sales of articles of native Indian handicraft, such as bows and arrow shafts, manufactured by Indians on reservations, in Indian schools, or under U. Irs 1040 ez S. Irs 1040 ez jurisdiction in Alaska. Irs 1040 ez For tire exemptions, see section 4221(e)(2).

Irs 1040 ez   The manufacturer, first purchaser, and second purchaser in the case of resales must be registered. Irs 1040 ez See the Form 637 instructions for more information.

Irs 1040 ez   Registration is not required for: State or local governments, Foreign purchasers of articles sold or resold for export, The United States, or Parties to a sale of supplies for vessels and aircraft. Irs 1040 ez Certification requirement. Irs 1040 ez   If the purchaser is required to be registered, the purchaser must give the manufacturer its registration number and certify the exempt purpose for which the article will be used. Irs 1040 ez The information must be in writing and may be noted on the purchase order or other document furnished by the purchaser to the seller in connection with the sale. Irs 1040 ez   For a sale to a state or local government, an exemption certificate must be signed by an officer or employee authorized by the state or local government.

Irs 1040 ez The claim must set forth in detail the facts upon which the claim is based. Irs 1040 ez Uses, sales, and exports.

Irs 1040 ez   In addition, a credit or refund (without interest) may be allowable for a tax-paid article for which the price is readjusted by reason of return or repossession of the article or a bona fide discount, rebate, or allowance for taxes based on price. Irs 1040 ez Conditions to allowance.

Irs 1040 ez If the purchaser or any other person then sells it to a person who is related (discussed next) to the manufacturer, that related person is liable for a second tax on any subsequent sale of the article. Irs 1040 ez The second tax, however, is not imposed if the constructive sale price rules under section 4216(b) apply to the sale by the manufacturer. Irs 1040 ez   If the second tax is imposed, a credit for tax previously paid by the manufacturer is available provided the related person can document the tax paid. Irs 1040 ez The documentation requirement is generally satisfied only through submission of copies of actual records of the person that previously paid the tax. Irs 1040 ez Related person. Irs 1040 ez   For the tax on sport fishing equipment, a person is a related person of the manufacturer if that person and the manufacturer have a relationship described in section 465(b)(3)(C). Irs 1040 ez Bows, Quivers, Broadheads, and Points The tax on bows is 11% (. Irs 1040 ez 11) of the sales price. Irs 1040 ez The tax is paid by the manufacturer, producer, or importer. Irs 1040 ez It applies to bows having a peak draw weight of 30 pounds or more. Irs 1040 ez The tax is also imposed on the sale of any part or accessory suitable for inclusion in or attachment to a taxable bow and any quiver, broadhead, or point suitable for use with arrows described below. Irs 1040 ez Pay this tax with Form 720. Irs 1040 ez No tax deposits are required. Irs 1040 ez Arrow Shafts The tax on arrow shafts is listed on Form 720. Irs 1040 ez The tax is paid by the manufacturer, producer, or importer of any arrow shaft (whether sold separately or incorporated as part of a finished or unfinished product) of a type used in the manufacture of any arrow that after its assembly meets either of the following conditions. Irs 1040 ez It measures 18 inches or more in overall length. Irs 1040 ez It measures less than 18 inches in overall length but is suitable for use with a taxable bow, described earlier. Irs 1040 ez Exemption for certain wooden arrows. Irs 1040 ez   After October 3, 2008, the tax does not apply to any shaft made of all natural wood with no laminations or artificial means of enhancing the spine of such shaft (whether sold separately or incorporated as part of a finished or unfinished product) and used in the manufacture of any arrow that after its assembly meets both of the following conditions. Irs 1040 ez It measures 5/16 of an inch or less in diameter. Irs 1040 ez It is not suitable for use with a taxable bow, described earlier. Irs 1040 ez Pay this tax with Form 720. Irs 1040 ez No tax deposits are required. Irs 1040 ez Coal A tax is imposed on the first sale of coal mined in the United States. Irs 1040 ez The producer of the coal is liable for the tax. Irs 1040 ez The producer is the person who has vested ownership of the coal under state law immediately after the coal is severed from the ground. Irs 1040 ez Determine vested ownership without regard to any contractual arrangement for the sale or other disposition of the coal or the payment of any royalties between the producer and third parties. Irs 1040 ez A producer includes any person who extracts coal from coal waste refuse piles (or from the silt waste product that results from the wet washing of coal). Irs 1040 ez The tax is not imposed on coal extracted from a riverbed by dredging if it can be shown that the coal has been taxed previously. Irs 1040 ez Tax rates. Irs 1040 ez   The tax on underground-mined coal is the lower of: $1. Irs 1040 ez 10 a ton, or 4. Irs 1040 ez 4% of the sale price. Irs 1040 ez   The tax on surface-mined coal is the lower of: 55 cents a ton, or 4. Irs 1040 ez 4% of the sale price. Irs 1040 ez   Coal will be taxed at the 4. Irs 1040 ez 4% rate if the selling price is less than $25 a ton for underground-mined coal and less than $12. Irs 1040 ez 50 a ton for surface-mined coal. Irs 1040 ez Apply the tax proportionately if a sale or use includes a portion of a ton. Irs 1040 ez Example. Irs 1040 ez If you sell 21,000 pounds (10. Irs 1040 ez 5 tons) of coal from an underground mine for $525, the price per ton is $50. Irs 1040 ez The tax is $1. Irs 1040 ez 10 × 10. Irs 1040 ez 5 tons ($11. Irs 1040 ez 55). Irs 1040 ez Coal production. Irs 1040 ez   Coal is produced from surface mines if all geological matter (trees, earth, rock) above the coal is removed before the coal is mined. Irs 1040 ez Treat coal removed by auger and coal reclaimed from coal waste refuse piles as produced from a surface mine. Irs 1040 ez   Treat coal as produced from an underground mine when the coal is not produced from a surface mine. Irs 1040 ez In some cases, a single mine may yield coal from both surface mining and underground mining. Irs 1040 ez Determine if the coal is from a surface mine or an underground mine for each ton of coal produced and not on a mine-by-mine basis. Irs 1040 ez Determining tonnage or selling price. Irs 1040 ez   The producer pays the tax on coal at the time of sale or use. Irs 1040 ez In figuring the selling price for applying the tax, the point of sale is f. Irs 1040 ez o. Irs 1040 ez b. Irs 1040 ez (free on board) mine or f. Irs 1040 ez o. Irs 1040 ez b. Irs 1040 ez cleaning plant if you clean the coal before selling it. Irs 1040 ez This applies even if you sell the coal for a delivered price. Irs 1040 ez The f. Irs 1040 ez o. Irs 1040 ez b. Irs 1040 ez mine or f. Irs 1040 ez o. Irs 1040 ez b. Irs 1040 ez cleaning plant is the point at which you figure the number of tons sold for applying the applicable tonnage rate, and the point at which you figure the sale price for applying the 4. Irs 1040 ez 4% rate. Irs 1040 ez   The tax applies to the full amount of coal sold. Irs 1040 ez However, the IRS allows a calculated reduction of the taxable weight of the coal for the weight of the moisture in excess of the coal's inherent moisture content. Irs 1040 ez Include in the sale price any additional charge for a freeze-conditioning additive in figuring the tax. Irs 1040 ez   Do not include in the sales price the excise tax imposed on coal. Irs 1040 ez Coal used by the producer. Irs 1040 ez   The tax on coal applies if the coal is used by the producer in other than a mining process. Irs 1040 ez A mining process means the same for this purpose as for percentage depletion. Irs 1040 ez For example, the tax does not apply if, before selling the coal, you break it, clean it, size it, or apply any other process considered mining under the rules for depletion. Irs 1040 ez In this case, the tax applies only when you sell the coal. Irs 1040 ez The tax does not apply to coal used as fuel in the coal drying process since it is considered to be used in a mining process. Irs 1040 ez However, the tax does apply when you use the coal as fuel or as an ingredient in making coke since the coal is not used in a mining process. Irs 1040 ez   You must use a constructive sale price to figure the tax under the 4. Irs 1040 ez 4% rate if you use the coal in other than a mining process. Irs 1040 ez Base your constructive sale price on sales of a like kind and grade of coal by you or other producers made f. Irs 1040 ez o. Irs 1040 ez b. Irs 1040 ez mine or cleaning plant. Irs 1040 ez Normally, you use the same constructive price used to figure your percentage depletion deduction. Irs 1040 ez Blending. Irs 1040 ez   If you blend surface-mined coal with underground-mined coal during the cleaning process, you must figure the excise tax on the sale of the blended, cleaned coal. Irs 1040 ez Figure the tax separately for each type of coal in the blend. Irs 1040 ez Base the tax on the amount of each type in the blend if you can determine the proportion of each type of coal contained in the final blend. Irs 1040 ez Base the tax on the ratio of each type originally put into the cleaning process if you cannot determine the proportion of each type of coal in the blend. Irs 1040 ez However, the tax is limited to 4. Irs 1040 ez 4% of the sale price per ton of the blended coal. Irs 1040 ez Exemption from tax. Irs 1040 ez   The tax does not apply to sales of lignite and imported coal. Irs 1040 ez The only other exemption from the tax on the sale of coal is for coal exported as discussed next. Irs 1040 ez Exported. Irs 1040 ez   The tax does not apply to the sale of coal if the coal is in the stream of export when sold by the producer and the coal is actually exported. Irs 1040 ez   Coal is in the stream of export when sold by the producer if the sale is a step in the exportation of the coal to its ultimate destination in a foreign country. Irs 1040 ez For example, coal is in the stream of export when: The coal is loaded on an export vessel and title is transferred from the producer to a foreign purchaser, or The producer sells the coal to an export broker in the United States under terms of a contract showing that the coal is to be shipped to a foreign country. Irs 1040 ez   Proof of export includes any of the following items. Irs 1040 ez A copy of the export bill of lading issued by the delivering carrier. Irs 1040 ez A certificate signed by the export carrier's agent or representative showing actual exportation of the coal. Irs 1040 ez A certificate of landing signed by a customs officer of the foreign country to which the coal is exported. Irs 1040 ez If the foreign country does not have a customs administrator, a statement of the foreign consignee showing receipt of the coal. Irs 1040 ez Taxable Tires Taxable tires are divided into three categories for reporting and figuring the tax as described below. Irs 1040 ez A tax is imposed on taxable tires sold by the manufacturer, producer, or importer at the rate of $. Irs 1040 ez 0945 ($. Irs 1040 ez 04725 in the case of a biasply tire or super single tire) for each 10 pounds of the maximum rated load capacity over 3,500 pounds. Irs 1040 ez The three categories for reporting the tax and the tax rate are listed below. Irs 1040 ez Taxable tires other than biasply or super single tires at $. Irs 1040 ez 0945. Irs 1040 ez Taxable tires, biasply or super single tires (other than super single tires designed for steering) at $. Irs 1040 ez 04725. Irs 1040 ez Taxable tires, super single tires designed for steering at $. Irs 1040 ez 0945. Irs 1040 ez A taxable tire is any tire of the type used on highway vehicles if wholly or partially made of rubber and if marked according to federal regulations for highway use. Irs 1040 ez A biasply tire is a pneumatic tire on which the ply cords that extend to the beads are laid at alternate angles substantially less than 90 degrees to the centerline of the tread. Irs 1040 ez A super single tire is a tire greater than 13 inches in cross section width designed to replace 2 tires in a dual fitment. Irs 1040 ez Special rule, manufacturer's retail stores. Irs 1040 ez   The excise tax on taxable tires is imposed at the time the taxable tires are delivered to the manufacturer-owned retail stores, not at the time of sale. Irs 1040 ez Tires on imported articles. Irs 1040 ez   The importer of an article equipped with taxable tires is treated as the manufacturer of the tires and is liable for the taxable tire excise tax when the article is sold (except in the case of an automobile bus chassis or body with tires). Irs 1040 ez Tires exempt from tax. Irs 1040 ez   The tax on taxable tires does not apply to the following items. Irs 1040 ez Domestically recapped or retreaded tires if the tires have been sold previously in the United States and were taxable tires at the time of sale. Irs 1040 ez Tire carcasses not suitable for commercial use. Irs 1040 ez Tires for use on qualifying intercity, local, and school buses. Irs 1040 ez For tax-free treatment, the registration requirements discussed earlier under Requirements for Exempt Sales apply. Irs 1040 ez Tires sold for the exclusive use of the Department of Defense or the Coast Guard. Irs 1040 ez Tires of a type used exclusively on mobile machinery. Irs 1040 ez A taxable tire used on mobile machinery is not exempt from tax. Irs 1040 ez Qualifying intercity or local bus. Irs 1040 ez   This is any bus used mainly (more than 50%) to transport the general public for a fee and that either operates on a schedule along regular routes or seats at least 20 adults (excluding the driver). Irs 1040 ez Qualifying school bus. Irs 1040 ez   This is any bus substantially all the use (85% or more) of which is to transport students and employees of schools. Irs 1040 ez Credit or refund. Irs 1040 ez   A credit or refund (without interest) is allowable on tax-paid tires if the tires have been: Exported; Sold to a state or local government for its exclusive use; Sold to a nonprofit educational organization for its exclusive use (as defined under Communications Tax in chapter 4); Sold to a qualified blood collector organization (as defined under Communications Tax in chapter 4) for its exclusive use in connection with a vehicle the organization certifies will be primarily used in the collection, storage, or transportation of blood; Used or sold for use as supplies for vessels; or Sold in connection with qualified intercity, local, or school buses. Irs 1040 ez   Also, a credit or refund (without interest) is allowable on tax-paid tires sold by any person on, or in connection with, any other article that is sold or used in an activity listed above. Irs 1040 ez   The person who paid the tax is eligible to make the claim. Irs 1040 ez Gas Guzzler Tax Tax is imposed on the sale by the manufacturer of automobiles of a model type that has a fuel economy standard as measured by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of less than 22. Irs 1040 ez 5 miles per gallon. Irs 1040 ez If you import an automobile for personal use, you may be liable for this tax. Irs 1040 ez Figure the tax on Form 6197, as discussed later. Irs 1040 ez The tax rate is based on fuel economy rating. Irs 1040 ez The tax rates for the gas guzzler tax are shown on Form 6197. Irs 1040 ez A person that lengthens an existing automobile is the manufacturer of an automobile. Irs 1040 ez Automobiles. Irs 1040 ez   An automobile (including limousines) means any four-wheeled vehicle that is: Rated at an unloaded gross vehicle weight of 6,000 pounds or less, Propelled by an engine powered by gasoline or diesel fuel, and Intended for use mainly on public streets, roads, and highways. Irs 1040 ez Vehicles not subject to tax. Irs 1040 ez   For the gas guzzler tax, the following vehicles are not considered automobiles. Irs 1040 ez Limousines with a gross unloaded vehicle weight of more than 6,000 pounds. Irs 1040 ez Vehicles operated exclusively on a rail or rails. Irs 1040 ez Vehicles sold for use and used primarily: As ambulances or combination ambulance-hearses, For police or other law enforcement purposes by federal, state, or local governments, or For firefighting purposes. Irs 1040 ez Vehicles treated under 49 U. Irs 1040 ez S. Irs 1040 ez C. Irs 1040 ez 32901 (1978) as non-passenger automobiles. Irs 1040 ez This includes limousines manufactured primarily to transport more than 10 persons. Irs 1040 ez   The manufacturer can sell a vehicle described in item (3) tax free only when the sale is made directly to a purchaser for the described emergency use and the manufacturer and purchaser (other than a state or local government) are registered. Irs 1040 ez   Treat an Indian tribal government as a state only if the police or other law enforcement purposes are an essential tribal government function. Irs 1040 ez Model type. Irs 1040 ez   Model type is a particular class of automobile as determined by EPA regulations. Irs 1040 ez Fuel economy. Irs 1040 ez   Fuel economy is the average number of miles an automobile travels on a gallon of gasoline (or diesel fuel) rounded to the nearest 0. Irs 1040 ez 1 mile as figured by the EPA. Irs 1040 ez Imported automobiles. Irs 1040 ez   The tax also applies to automobiles that do not have a prototype-based fuel economy rating assigned by the EPA. Irs 1040 ez An automobile imported into the United States without a certificate of conformity to United States emission standards and that has no assigned fuel economy rating must be either: Converted by installation of emission controls to conform in all material respects to an automobile already certified for sale in the United States, or Modified by installation of emission control components and individually tested to demonstrate emission compliance. Irs 1040 ez   An imported automobile that has been converted to conform to an automobile already certified for sale in the United States may use the fuel economy rating assigned to that certified automobile. Irs 1040 ez   A fuel economy rating is not generally available for modified imported automobiles because the EPA does not require a highway fuel economy test on them. Irs 1040 ez A separate highway fuel economy test would be required to devise a fuel economy rating (otherwise the automobile is presumed to fall within the lowest fuel economy rating category). Irs 1040 ez   For more information about fuel economy ratings for imported automobiles, see Revenue Ruling 86-20 and Revenue Procedure 86-9 in Cumulative Bulletin 1986-1, and Revenue Procedure 87-10 in Cumulative Bulletin 1987-1. Irs 1040 ez Exemptions. Irs 1040 ez   No one is exempt from the gas guzzler tax, including the federal government, state and local governments, qualified blood collector organizations, and nonprofit educational organizations. Irs 1040 ez However, see Vehicles not subject to tax, earlier. Irs 1040 ez Form 6197. Irs 1040 ez   Use Form 6197 to figure your tax liability for each quarter. Irs 1040 ez Attach Form 6197 to your Form 720 for the quarter. Irs 1040 ez See the Form 6197 instructions for more information and the one-time filing rules. Irs 1040 ez Credit or refund. Irs 1040 ez   If the manufacturer paid the tax on a vehicle that is used or resold for an emergency use (see item (3) under Vehicles not subject to tax), the manufacturer can claim a credit or refund. Irs 1040 ez For information about how to file for credits or refunds, see the Instructions for Form 720 or Form 8849. Irs 1040 ez Vaccines Tax is imposed on certain vaccines sold by the manufacturer in the United States. Irs 1040 ez A taxable vaccine means any of the following vaccines. Irs 1040 ez Any vaccine containing diphtheria toxoid. Irs 1040 ez Any vaccine containing tetanus toxoid. Irs 1040 ez Any vaccine containing pertussis bacteria, extracted or partial cell bacteria, or specific pertussis antigens. Irs 1040 ez Any vaccine containing polio virus. Irs 1040 ez Any vaccine against measles. Irs 1040 ez Any vaccine against mumps. Irs 1040 ez Any vaccine against rubella. Irs 1040 ez Any vaccine against hepatitis A. Irs 1040 ez Any vaccine against hepatitis B. Irs 1040 ez Any vaccine against chicken pox. Irs 1040 ez Any vaccine against rotavirus gastroenteritis. Irs 1040 ez Any HIB vaccine. Irs 1040 ez Any conjugate vaccine against streptococcus pneumoniae. Irs 1040 ez Any trivalent vaccine against influenza or any other vaccine against influenza. Irs 1040 ez Any meningococcal vaccine. Irs 1040 ez Any vaccine against the human papillomavirus. Irs 1040 ez The effective date for the tax on any vaccine against influenza, other than trivalent influenza vaccines, is the later of August 1, 2013, or the date the Secretary of Health and Human Services lists a vaccine against seasonal influenza for purposes of compensation for any vaccine-related injury or death through the Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund. Irs 1040 ez The tax is $. Irs 1040 ez 75 per dose of each taxable vaccine. Irs 1040 ez The tax per dose on a vaccine that contains more than one taxable vaccine is $. Irs 1040 ez 75 times the number of taxable vaccines. Irs 1040 ez Taxable use. Irs 1040 ez   Any manufacturer (including a governmental entity) that uses a taxable vaccine before it is sold will be liable for the tax in the same manner as if the vaccine was sold by the manufacturer. Irs 1040 ez Credit or refund. Irs 1040 ez   A credit or refund (without interest) is available if the vaccine is: Returned to the person who paid the tax (other than for resale), or Destroyed. Irs 1040 ez The claim for a credit or refund must be filed within 6 months after the vaccine is returned or destroyed. Irs 1040 ez Conditions to allowance. Irs 1040 ez   To claim a credit or refund, the person who paid the tax must have repaid or agreed to repay the tax to the ultimate purchaser of the vaccine or obtained the written consent of such purchaser to allowance of the credit or refund. Irs 1040 ez Taxable Medical Devices Taxable medical devices. Irs 1040 ez   The tax on the sale of certain medical devices by the manufacturer, producer, or importer of the device is 2. Irs 1040 ez 3% (. Irs 1040 ez 023) of the sales price. Irs 1040 ez A taxable medical device is a device that is listed as a device with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under section 510(j) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and 21 CFR part 807, pursuant to FDA requirements. Irs 1040 ez There are specific exemptions for eyeglasses, contact lenses, and hearing aids. Irs 1040 ez There is also an exemption for devices that are determined by the Secretary to be of a type that are generally purchased by the general public at retail for individual use (this exemption is known as the retail exemption). Irs 1040 ez See T. Irs 1040 ez D. Irs 1040 ez 9604 for information on how to determine whether a device falls within the retail exemption, and examples of how a taxpayer might evaluate a given device. Irs 1040 ez More information. Irs 1040 ez   For more information on the medical device tax, see section 4191, T. Irs 1040 ez D. Irs 1040 ez 9604, and Notice 2012-77. Irs 1040 ez You can find T. Irs 1040 ez D.

Irs 1040 ez Step 1. Irs 1040 ez   Complete your tax return for the year. Irs 1040 ez You may have an NOL if a negative figure appears on the line below: Individuals — Form 1040, line 41, or Form 1040NR, line 39. Irs 1040 ez Estates and trusts — Form 1041, line 22. Irs 1040 ez   If the amount on that line is not negative, stop here — you do not have an NOL. Irs 1040 ez Step 2. Irs 1040 ez   Determine whether you have an NOL and its amount. Irs 1040 ez See How To Figure an NOL , later. Irs 1040 ez If you do not have an NOL, stop here. Irs 1040 ez Step 3. Irs 1040 ez   Decide whether to carry the NOL back to a past year or to waive the carryback period and instead carry the NOL forward to a future year. Irs 1040 ez See When To Use an NOL , later. Irs 1040 ez Step 4. Irs 1040 ez   Deduct the NOL in the carryback or carryforward year. Irs 1040 ez See How To Claim an NOL Deduction , later. Irs 1040 ez If your NOL deduction is equal to or less than your taxable income without the deduction, stop here — you have used up your NOL. Irs 1040 ez Step 5. Irs 1040 ez   Determine the amount of your unused NOL. Irs 1040 ez See How To Figure an NOL Carryover , later. Irs 1040 ez Carry over the unused NOL to the next carryback or carryforward year and begin again at Step 4. Irs 1040 ez Note. Irs 1040 ez   If your NOL deduction includes more than one NOL amount, apply Step 5 separately to each NOL amount, starting with the amount from the earliest year. Irs 1040 ez How To Figure an NOL If your deductions for the year are more than your income for the year, you may have an NOL. Irs 1040 ez There are rules that limit what you can deduct when figuring an NOL. Irs 1040 ez In general, the following items are not allowed when figuring an NOL. Irs 1040 ez Any deduction for personal exemptions. Irs 1040 ez Capital losses in excess of capital gains.

Irs 1040 ez The net operating loss deduction. Irs 1040 ez The domestic production activities deduction. Irs 1040 ez Form 1045, Schedule A. Irs 1040 ez   Use Form 1045, Schedule A, to figure an NOL. Irs 1040 ez The following discussion explains Schedule A and includes an illustrated example. Irs 1040 ez   First, complete Form 1045, Schedule A, line 1, using amounts from your return. Irs 1040 ez If line 1 is a negative amount, you may have an NOL. Irs 1040 ez   Next, complete the rest of Form 1045, Schedule A, to figure your NOL. Irs 1040 ez Nonbusiness deductions (line 6). Irs 1040 ez   Enter on line 6 deductions that are not connected to your trade or business or your employment.

Irs 1040 ez   You can deduct your nonbusiness capital losses (line 2) only up to the amount of your nonbusiness capital gains without regard to any section 1202 exclusion (line 3). Irs 1040 ez If your nonbusiness capital losses are more than your nonbusiness capital gains without regard to any section 1202 exclusion, you cannot deduct the excess. Irs 1040 ez Business capital losses. Irs 1040 ez   You can deduct your business capital losses (line 11) only up to the total of: Your nonbusiness capital gains that are more than the total of your nonbusiness capital losses and excess nonbusiness deductions (line 10), and Your total business capital gains without regard to any section 1202 exclusion (line 12).

Irs 1040 ez   You cannot deduct any NOL carryovers or carrybacks from other years. Irs 1040 ez Enter the total amount of your NOL deduction for losses from other years. Irs 1040 ez Illustrated Form 1045, Schedule A The following example illustrates how to figure an NOL. Irs 1040 ez It includes filled-in pages 1 and 2 of Form 1040 and Form 1045, Schedule A. Irs 1040 ez Example. Irs 1040 ez Glenn Johnson is in the retail record business. Irs 1040 ez He is single and has the following income and deductions on his Form 1040 for 2013. Irs 1040 ez See the illustrated Form 1040 , later. Irs 1040 ez INCOME   Wages from part-time job $1,225 Interest on savings 425 Net long-term capital gain on sale of real estate used in business 2,000 Glenn's total income $3,650 DEDUCTIONS   Net loss from business (gross income of $67,000 minus expenses of $72,000) $5,000 Net short-term capital loss on sale of stock 1,000 Standard deduction 6,100 Personal exemption 3,900 Glenn's total deductions $16,000 Glenn's deductions exceed his income by $12,350 ($16,000 − $3,650). Irs 1040 ez However, to figure whether he has an NOL, certain deductions are not allowed. Irs 1040 ez He uses Form 1045, Schedule A, to figure his NOL. Irs 1040 ez See the Illustrated Form 1045, Schedule A , later. Irs 1040 ez The following items are not allowed on Form 1045, Schedule A. Irs 1040 ez Nonbusiness net short-term capital loss $1,000 Nonbusiness deductions (standard deduction, $6,100) minus nonbusiness income (interest, $425) 5,675 Deduction for personal exemption 3,900 Total adjustments to net loss $10,575     Therefore, Glenn's NOL for 2013 is figured as follows: Glenn's total 2013 income $3,650 Less:     Glenn's original 2013 total deductions $16,000   Reduced by the disallowed items − 10,575 − 5,425 Glenn's NOL for 2013 $1,775 This image is too large to be displayed in the current screen.

Irs 1040 ez Form 1045, page 2 When To Use an NOL Generally, if you have an NOL for a tax year ending in 2013, you must carry back the entire amount of the NOL to the 2 tax years before the NOL year (the carryback period), and then carry forward any remaining NOL for up to 20 years after the NOL year (the carryforward period). Irs 1040 ez You can, however, choose not to carry back an NOL and only carry it forward. Irs 1040 ez See Waiving the Carryback Period , later. Irs 1040 ez You cannot deduct any part of the NOL remaining after the 20-year carryforward period. Irs 1040 ez NOL year. Irs 1040 ez   This is the year in which the NOL occurred. Irs 1040 ez Exceptions to 2-Year Carryback Rule Eligible losses, farming losses, qualified disaster losses, and specified liability losses, all defined next, qualify for longer carryback periods. Irs 1040 ez Eligible loss. Irs 1040 ez   The carryback period for eligible losses is 3 years. Irs 1040 ez Only the eligible loss portion of the NOL can be carried back 3 years. Irs 1040 ez An eligible loss is any part of an NOL that: Is from a casualty or theft, or Is attributable to a federally declared disaster for a qualified small business or certain qualified farming businesses. Irs 1040 ez Qualified small business. Irs 1040 ez   A qualified small business is a sole proprietorship or a partnership that has average annual gross receipts (reduced by returns and allowances) of $5 million or less during the 3-year period ending with the tax year of the NOL. Irs 1040 ez If the business did not exist for this entire 3-year period, use the period the business was in existence. Irs 1040 ez   An eligible loss does not include a farming loss or a qualified disaster loss. Irs 1040 ez Farming loss. Irs 1040 ez   The carryback period for a farming loss is 5 years. Irs 1040 ez Only the farming loss portion of the NOL can be carried back 5 years. Irs 1040 ez A farming loss is the smaller of: The amount that would be the NOL for the tax year if only income and deductions attributable to farming businesses were taken into account, or The NOL for the tax year. Irs 1040 ez Farming business. Irs 1040 ez   A farming business is a trade or business involving cultivation of land or the raising or harvesting of any agricultural or horticultural commodity. Irs 1040 ez A farming business can include operating a nursery or sod farm or raising or harvesting most ornamental trees or trees bearing fruit, nuts, or other crops. Irs 1040 ez The raising, shearing, feeding, caring for, training, and management of animals is also considered a farming business. Irs 1040 ez   A farming business does not include contract harvesting of an agricultural or horticultural commodity grown or raised by someone else. Irs 1040 ez It also does not include a business in which you merely buy or sell plants or animals grown or raised entirely by someone else. Irs 1040 ez Waiving the 5-year carryback. Irs 1040 ez   You can choose to figure the carryback period for a farming loss without regard to the special 5-year carryback rule. Irs 1040 ez To make this choice for 2013, attach to your 2013 income tax return filed by the due date (including extensions) a statement that you are choosing to treat any 2013 farming losses without regard to the special 5-year carryback rule. Irs 1040 ez If you filed your original return on time but did not file the statement with it, you can make this choice on an amended return filed within 6 months after the due date of the return (excluding extensions). Irs 1040 ez Attach an election statement to your amended return, and write “Filed pursuant to section 301. Irs 1040 ez 9100-2” at the top of the statement. Irs 1040 ez Once made, this choice is irrevocable. Irs 1040 ez Qualified disaster loss. Irs 1040 ez   The carryback period for a qualified disaster loss is 5 years. Irs 1040 ez Only the qualified disaster loss portion of the NOL can be carried back 5 years. Irs 1040 ez A qualified disaster loss is the smaller of: The sum of: Any losses attributable to a federally declared disaster and occurring before January 1, 2010, in the disaster area, plus Any allowable qualified disaster expenses (even if you did not choose to treat those expenses as deductions in the current year), or The NOL for the tax year. Irs 1040 ez Qualified disaster expenses. Irs 1040 ez   A qualified disaster expense is any capital expense paid or incurred in connection with a trade or business or with business-related property which is: For the abatement or control of hazardous substances that were released as a result of a federally declared disaster occurring before January 1, 2010, For the removal of debris from, or the demolition of structures on, real property which is business-related property damaged or destroyed as a result of a federally declared disaster occurring before January 1, 2010, or For the repair of business-related property damaged as a result of a federally declared disaster occurring before January 1, 2010. Irs 1040 ez Business-related property is property held for use in a trade or business, property held for the production of income, or inventory property. Irs 1040 ez Note. Irs 1040 ez Section 198A allows taxpayers to treat certain capital expenses (qualified disaster expenses) as deductions in the year the expenses were paid or incurred. Irs 1040 ez Excluded losses. Irs 1040 ez   A qualified disaster loss does not include any losses from property used in connection with any private or commercial golf course, country club, massage parlor, hot tub facility, suntan facility, or any store for which the principal business is the sale of alcoholic beverages for consumption off premises. Irs 1040 ez   A qualified disaster loss also does not include any losses from any gambling or animal racing property. Irs 1040 ez Gambling or animal racing property is any equipment, furniture, software, or other property used directly in connection with gambling, the racing of animals, or the on-site viewing of such racing, and the portion of any real property (determined by square footage) that is dedicated to gambling, the racing of animals, or the on-site viewing of such racing, unless this portion is less than 100 square feet. Irs 1040 ez Specified liability loss. Irs 1040 ez   The carryback period for a specified liability loss is 10 years. Irs 1040 ez Only the specified liability loss portion of the NOL can be carried back 10 years. Irs 1040 ez Generally, a specified liability loss is a loss arising from: Product liability and expenses incurred in the investigation or settlement of, or opposition to, product liability claims, or An act (or failure to act) that occurred at least 3 years before the beginning of the loss year and resulted in a liability under a federal or state law requiring: Reclamation of land, Dismantling of a drilling platform, Remediation of environmental contamination, or Payment under any workers compensation act. Irs 1040 ez   Any loss from a liability arising from (1) through (4) above can be taken into account as a specified liability loss only if you used an accrual method of accounting throughout the period in which the act (or failure to act) occurred. Irs 1040 ez For details, see section 172(f). Irs 1040 ez Waiving the 10-year carryback. Irs 1040 ez   You can choose to figure the carryback period for a specified liability loss without regard to the special 10-year carryback rule. Irs 1040 ez To make this choice for 2013 attach to your 2013 income tax return filed by the due date (including extensions) a statement that you are choosing to treat any 2013 specified liability losses without regard to the special 10-year carryback rule. Irs 1040 ez If you filed your original return on time but did not file the statement with it, you can make this choice on an amended return filed within 6 months after the due date of the return (excluding extensions). Irs 1040 ez Attach a statement to your amended return and write “Filed pursuant to section 301. Irs 1040 ez 9100-2” at the top of the statement. Irs 1040 ez Once made, this choice is irrevocable. Irs 1040 ez Waiving the Carryback Period You can choose not to carry back your NOL. Irs 1040 ez If you make this choice, then you can use your NOL only in the 20-year carryforward period. Irs 1040 ez (This choice means you also choose not to carry back any alternative tax NOL. Irs 1040 ez ) To make this choice, attach a statement to your original return filed by the due date (including extensions) for the NOL year. Irs 1040 ez This statement must show that you are choosing to waive the carryback period under section 172(b)(3). Irs 1040 ez If you filed your original return on time but did not file the statement with it, you can make this choice on an amended return filed within 6 months of the due date of the return (excluding extensions). Irs 1040 ez Attach a statement to your amended return, and write “Filed pursuant to section 301. Irs 1040 ez 9100-2” at the top of the statement. Irs 1040 ez Once you choose to waive the carryback period, it generally is irrevocable. Irs 1040 ez If you choose to waive the carryback period for more than one NOL, you must make a separate choice and attach a separate statement for each NOL year. Irs 1040 ez If you do not file this statement on time, you cannot waive the carryback period. Irs 1040 ez How To Carry an NOL Back or Forward If you choose to carry back the NOL, you must first carry the entire NOL to the earliest carryback year. Irs 1040 ez If your NOL is not used up, you can carry the rest to the next earliest carryback year, and so on. Irs 1040 ez If you waive the carryback period or do not use up the NOL in the carryback period, carry forward what remains of the NOL to the 20 tax years following the NOL year. Irs 1040 ez Start by carrying it to the first tax year after the NOL year. Irs 1040 ez If you do not use it up, carry the unused part to the next year. Irs 1040 ez Continue to carry any unused part of the NOL forward until the NOL is used up or you complete the 20-year carryforward period. Irs 1040 ez Example 1. Irs 1040 ez You started your business as a sole proprietor in 2013 and had a $42,000 NOL for the year. Irs 1040 ez No part of the NOL qualifies for the 3-year, 5-year, or 10-year carryback. Irs 1040 ez You begin using your NOL in 2011, the second year before the NOL year, as shown in the following chart. Irs 1040 ez Year   Carryback/  Carryover Unused  Loss 2011 $42,000 $40,000 2012 40,000 37,000 2013 (NOL year)     2014 37,000 31,500 2015 31,500 22,500 2016 22,500 12,700 2017 12,700 4,000 2018 4,000 -0- If your loss were larger, you could carry it forward until the year 2033. Irs 1040 ez If you still had an unused 2013 carryforward after the year 2033, you would not be allowed to deduct it. Irs 1040 ez Example 2. Irs 1040 ez Assume the same facts as in Example 1 , except that $4,000 of the NOL is attributable to a casualty loss and this loss qualifies for a 3-year carryback period. Irs 1040 ez You begin using the $4,000 in 2010. Irs 1040 ez As shown in the following chart, $3,000 of this NOL is used in 2010. Irs 1040 ez The remaining $1,000 is carried to 2011 with the $38,000 NOL that you must begin using in 2011. Irs 1040 ez Year   Carryback/  Carryover Unused  Loss 2010 $4,000 $1,000 2011 39,000 37,000 2012 37,000 34,000 2013 (NOL year)     2014 34,000 28,500 2015 28,500 19,500 2016 19,500 9,700 2017 9,700 1,000 2018 1,000 -0- How To Claim an NOL Deduction If you have not already carried the NOL to an earlier year, your NOL deduction is the total NOL. Irs 1040 ez If you carried the NOL to an earlier year, your NOL deduction is the carried over NOL minus the NOL amount you used in the earlier year or years. Irs 1040 ez If you carry more than one NOL to the same year, your NOL deduction is the total of these carrybacks and carryovers. Irs 1040 ez NOL resulting in no taxable income. Irs 1040 ez   If your NOL is more than the taxable income of the year you carry it to (figured before deducting the NOL), you generally will have an NOL carryover to the next year. Irs 1040 ez See How To Figure an NOL Carryover , later, to determine how much NOL you have used and how much you carry to the next year. Irs 1040 ez Deducting a Carryback If you carry back your NOL, you can use either Form 1045 or Form 1040X. Irs 1040 ez You can get your refund faster by using Form 1045, but you have a shorter time to file it. Irs 1040 ez You can use Form 1045 to apply an NOL to all carryback years. Irs 1040 ez If you use Form 1040X, you must use a separate Form 1040X for each carryback year to which you apply the NOL. Irs 1040 ez Estates and trusts that do not file Form 1045 must file an amended Form 1041 (instead of Form 1040X) for each carryback year to which NOLs are applied. Irs 1040 ez Use a copy of the appropriate year's Form 1041, check the “Amended return” box, and follow the Form 1041 instructions for amended returns. Irs 1040 ez Include the NOL deduction with other deductions not subject to the 2% limit (line 15a). Irs 1040 ez Also, see the special procedures for filing an amended return due to an NOL carryback, explained under Form 1040X , later. Irs 1040 ez Form 1045. Irs 1040 ez   You can apply for a quick refund by filing Form 1045. Irs 1040 ez This form results in a tentative adjustment of tax in the carryback year. Irs 1040 ez See the Illustrated Form 1045 . Irs 1040 ez at the end of this discussion. Irs 1040 ez   If the IRS refunds or credits an amount to you from Form 1045 and later determines that the refund or credit is too much, the IRS may assess and collect the excess immediately. Irs 1040 ez   Generally, you must file Form 1045 on or after the date you file your tax return for the NOL year, but not later than one year after the end of the NOL year. Irs 1040 ez If the last day of the NOL year falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday, the form will be considered timely if postmarked on the next business day. Irs 1040 ez For example, if you are a calendar year taxpayer with a carryback from 2013 to 2011, you must file Form 1045 on or after the date you file your tax return for 2013, but no later than December 31, 2014. Irs 1040 ez Form 1040X. Irs 1040 ez   If you do not file Form 1045, you can file Form 1040X to get a refund of tax because of an NOL carryback. Irs 1040 ez File Form 1040X within 3 years after the due date, including extensions, for filing the return for the NOL year. Irs 1040 ez For example, if you are a calendar year taxpayer and filed your 2011 return by the April 15, 2012, due date, you must file a claim for refund of 2008 tax because of an NOL carryback from 2011 by April 15, 2015. Irs 1040 ez   Attach a computation of your NOL using Form 1045, Schedule A, and, if it applies, your NOL carryover using Form 1045, Schedule B, discussed later . Irs 1040 ez Refiguring your tax. Irs 1040 ez   To refigure your total tax liability for a carryback year, first refigure your adjusted gross income for that year. Irs 1040 ez (On Form 1045, use lines 10 and 11 and the “After carryback” column for the applicable carryback year. Irs 1040 ez ) Use your adjusted gross income after applying the NOL deduction to refigure income or deduction items that are based on, or limited to, a percentage of your adjusted gross income. Irs 1040 ez Refigure the following items. Irs 1040 ez The special allowance for passive activity losses from rental real estate activities. Irs 1040 ez Taxable social security and tier 1 railroad retirement benefits. Irs 1040 ez IRA deductions. Irs 1040 ez Excludable savings bond interest. Irs 1040 ez Excludable employer-provided adoption benefits. Irs 1040 ez The student loan interest deduction. Irs 1040 ez The tuition and fees deduction. Irs 1040 ez   If more than one of these items apply, refigure them in the order listed above, using your adjusted gross income after applying the NOL deduction and any previous item. Irs 1040 ez (Enter your NOL deduction on Form 1045, line 10. Irs 1040 ez On line 11, using the “After carryback” column, enter your adjusted gross income refigured after applying the NOL deduction and after refiguring any above items. Irs 1040 ez )   Next, refigure your taxable income. Irs 1040 ez (On Form 1045, use lines 12 through 15 and the “After carryback” column. Irs 1040 ez ) Use your refigured adjusted gross income (Form 1045, line 11, using the “After carryback” column) to refigure certain deductions and other items that are based on or limited to a percentage of your adjusted gross income. Irs 1040 ez Refigure the following items. Irs 1040 ez The itemized deduction for medical expenses. Irs 1040 ez The itemized deduction for qualified mortgage insurance premiums. Irs 1040 ez The itemized deduction for casualty losses. Irs 1040 ez Miscellaneous itemized deductions subject to the 2% limit. Irs 1040 ez The overall limit on itemized deductions (do not apply to carryback years beginning after December 31, 2009). Irs 1040 ez The phaseout of the deduction for exemptions (do not apply to carryback years beginning after December 31, 2009). Irs 1040 ez Qualified motor vehicle tax (do not apply to carryback years beginning after December 31, 2009). Irs 1040 ez    Do not refigure the itemized deduction for charitable contributions. Irs 1040 ez   Finally, use your refigured taxable income (Form 1045, line 15, using the “After carryback” column) to refigure your total tax liability. Irs 1040 ez Refigure your income tax, your alternative minimum tax, and any credits that are based on or limited by your adjusted gross income (AGI), modified adjusted gross income (MAGI), or tax liability. Irs 1040 ez (On Form 1045, use lines 16 through 25, and the “After carryback” column. Irs 1040 ez ) The earned income credit, for example, may be affected by changes to adjusted gross income or the amount of tax (or both) and, therefore, must be recomputed. Irs 1040 ez If you become eligible for a credit because of the carryback, complete the form for that specific credit (such as the EIC Worksheet) for that year. Irs 1040 ez   While it is necessary to refigure your income tax, alternative minimum tax, and credits, do not refigure your self-employment tax. Irs 1040 ez Deducting a Carryforward If you carry forward your NOL to a tax year after the NOL year, list your NOL deduction as a negative figure on the “Other income” line of Form 1040 or Form 1040NR (line 21 for 2013). Irs 1040 ez Estates and trusts include an NOL deduction on Form 1041 with other deductions not subject to the 2% limit (line 15a for 2013). Irs 1040 ez You must attach a statement that shows all the important facts about the NOL. Irs 1040 ez Your statement should include a computation showing how you figured the NOL deduction. Irs 1040 ez If you deduct more than one NOL in the same year, your statement must cover each of them. Irs 1040 ez Change in Marital Status If you and your spouse were not married to each other in all years involved in figuring NOL carrybacks and carryovers, only the spouse who had the loss can take the NOL deduction. Irs 1040 ez If you file a joint return, the NOL deduction is limited to the income of that spouse. Irs 1040 ez For example, if your marital status changes because of death or divorce, and in a later year you have an NOL, you can carry back that loss only to the part of the income reported on the joint return (filed with your former spouse) that was related to your taxable income. Irs 1040 ez After you deduct the NOL in the carryback year, the joint rates apply to the resulting taxable income. Irs 1040 ez Refund limit. Irs 1040 ez   If you are not married in the NOL year (or are married to a different spouse), and in the carryback year you were married and filed a joint return, your refund for the overpaid joint tax may be limited. Irs 1040 ez You can claim a refund for the difference between your share of the refigured tax and your contribution toward the tax paid on the joint return. Irs 1040 ez The refund cannot be more than the joint overpayment. Irs 1040 ez Attach a statement showing how you figured your refund. Irs 1040 ez Figuring your share of a joint tax liability. Irs 1040 ez   There are five steps for figuring your share of the refigured joint tax liability. Irs 1040 ez Figure your total tax as though you had filed as married filing separately. Irs 1040 ez Figure your spouse's total tax as though your spouse had also filed as married filing separately. Irs 1040 ez Add the amounts in (1) and (2). Irs 1040 ez Divide the amount in (1) by the amount in (3). Irs 1040 ez Multiply the refigured tax on your joint return by the amount figured in (4). Irs 1040 ez This is your share of the joint tax liability. Irs 1040 ez Figuring your contribution toward tax paid. Irs 1040 ez   Unless you have an agreement or clear evidence of each spouse's contributions toward the payment of the joint tax liability, figure your contribution by adding the tax withheld on your wages and your share of joint estimated tax payments or tax paid with the return. Irs 1040 ez If the original return for the carryback year resulted in an overpayment, reduce your contribution by your share of the tax refund. Irs 1040 ez Figure your share of a joint payment or refund by the same method used in figuring your share of the joint tax liability. Irs 1040 ez Use your taxable income as originally reported on the joint return in steps (1) and (2) above, and substitute the joint payment or refund for the refigured joint tax in step (5). Irs 1040 ez Change in Filing Status If you and your spouse were married and filed a joint return for each year involved in figuring NOL carrybacks and carryovers, figure the NOL deduction on a joint return as you would for an individual. Irs 1040 ez However, treat the NOL deduction as a joint NOL. Irs 1040 ez If you and your spouse were married and filed separate returns for each year involved in figuring NOL carrybacks and carryovers, the spouse who sustained the loss may take the NOL deduction on a separate return. Irs 1040 ez Special rules apply for figuring the NOL carrybacks and carryovers of married people whose filing status changes for any tax year involved in figuring an NOL carryback or carryover. Irs 1040 ez Separate to joint return. Irs 1040 ez   If you and your spouse file a joint return for a carryback or carryforward year, and were married but filed separate returns for any of the tax years involved in figuring the NOL carryback or carryover, treat the separate carryback or carryover as a joint carryback or carryover. Irs 1040 ez Joint to separate returns. Irs 1040 ez   If you and your spouse file separate returns for a carryback or carryforward year, but filed a joint return for any or all of the tax years involved in figuring the NOL carryover, figure each of your carryovers separately. Irs 1040 ez Joint return in NOL year. Irs 1040 ez   Figure each spouse's share of the joint NOL through the following steps. Irs 1040 ez Figure each spouse's NOL as if he or she filed a separate return. Irs 1040 ez See How To Figure an NOL , earlier. Irs 1040 ez If only one spouse has an NOL, stop here. Irs 1040 ez All of the joint NOL is that spouse's NOL. Irs 1040 ez If both spouses have an NOL, multiply the joint NOL by a fraction, the numerator of which is spouse A's NOL figured in (1) and the denominator of which is the total of the spouses' NOLs figured in (1). Irs 1040 ez The result is spouse A's share of the joint NOL. Irs 1040 ez The rest of the joint NOL is spouse B's share. Irs 1040 ez Example 1. Irs 1040 ez Mark and Nancy are married and file a joint return for 2013. Irs 1040 ez They have an NOL of $5,000. Irs 1040 ez They carry the NOL back to 2011, a year in which Mark and Nancy filed separate returns. Irs 1040 ez Figured separately, Nancy's 2013 deductions were more than her income, and Mark's income was more than his deductions. Irs 1040 ez Mark does not have any NOL to carry back. Irs 1040 ez Nancy can carry back the entire $5,000 NOL to her 2011 separate return. Irs 1040 ez Example 2. Irs 1040 ez Assume the same facts as in Example 1 , except that both Mark and Nancy had deductions in 2013 that were more than their income. Irs 1040 ez Figured separately, his NOL is $1,800 and her NOL is $3,000. Irs 1040 ez The sum of their separate NOLs ($4,800) is less than their $5,000 joint NOL because his deductions included a $200 net capital loss that is not allowed in figuring his separate NOL. Irs 1040 ez The loss is allowed in figuring their joint NOL because it was offset by Nancy's capital gains. Irs 1040 ez Mark's share of their $5,000 joint NOL is $1,875 ($5,000 × $1,800/$4,800) and Nancy's is $3,125 ($5,000 − $1,875). Irs 1040 ez Joint return in previous carryback or carryforward year. Irs 1040 ez   If only one spouse had an NOL deduction on the previous year's joint return, all of the joint carryover is that spouse's carryover. Irs 1040 ez If both spouses had an NOL deduction (including separate carryovers of a joint NOL, figured as explained in the previous discussion ), figure each spouse's share of the joint carryover through the following steps. Irs 1040 ez Figure each spouse's modified taxable income as if he or she filed a separate return. Irs 1040 ez See Modified taxable income under How To Figure an NOL Carryover , later. Irs 1040 ez Multiply the joint modified taxable income you used to figure the joint carryover by a fraction, the numerator of which is spouse A's modified taxable income figured in (1) and the denominator of which is the total of the spouses' modified taxable incomes figured in (1). Irs 1040 ez This is spouse A's share of the joint modified taxable income. Irs 1040 ez Subtract the amount figured in (2) from the joint modified taxable income. Irs 1040 ez This is spouse B's share of the joint modified taxable income. Irs 1040 ez Reduce the amount figured in (3), but not below zero, by spouse B's NOL deduction. Irs 1040 ez Add the amounts figured in (2) and (4). Irs 1040 ez Subtract the amount figured in (5) from spouse A's NOL deduction. Irs 1040 ez This is spouse A's share of the joint carryover. Irs 1040 ez The rest of the joint carryover is spouse B's share. Irs 1040 ez Example. Irs 1040 ez Sam and Wanda filed a joint return for 2011 and separate returns for 2012 and 2013. Irs 1040 ez In 2013, Sam had an NOL of $18,000 and Wanda had an NOL of $2,000. Irs 1040 ez They choose to carry back both NOLs 2 years to their 2011 joint return and claim a $20,000 NOL deduction. Irs 1040 ez Their joint modified taxable income (MTI) for 2011 is $15,000, and their joint NOL carryover to 2012 is $5,000 ($20,000 – $15,000). Irs 1040 ez Sam and Wanda each figure their separate MTI for 2011 as if they had filed separate returns. Irs 1040 ez Then they figure their shares of the $5,000 carryover as follows. Irs 1040 ez Step 1. Irs 1040 ez   Sam's separate MTI $9,000 Wanda's separate MTI + 3,000 Total MTI $12,000 Step 2. Irs 1040 ez   Joint MTI $15,000 Sam's MTI ÷ total MTI ($9,000 ÷ $12,000) × . Irs 1040 ez 75 Sam's share of joint MTI $11,250 Step 3. Irs 1040 ez   Joint MTI $15,000 Sam's share of joint MTI − 11,250 Wanda's share of joint MTI $3,750 Step 4. Irs 1040 ez   Wanda's share of joint MTI $3,750 Wanda's NOL deduction − 2,000 Wanda's remaining share $1,750 Step 5. Irs 1040 ez   Sam's share of joint MTI $11,250 Wanda's remaining share + 1,750 Joint MTI to be offset $13,000 Step 6. Irs 1040 ez   Sam's NOL deduction $18,000 Joint MTI to be offset − 13,000 Sam's carryover to 2012 $5,000 Joint carryover to 2012 $5,000 Sam's carryover − 5,000 Wanda's carryover to 2012 $-0- Wanda's $2,000 NOL deduction offsets $2,000 of her $3,750 share of the joint modified taxable income and is completely used up. Irs 1040 ez She has no carryover to 2012. Irs 1040 ez Sam's $18,000 NOL deduction offsets all of his $11,250 share of joint modified taxable income and the remaining $1,750 of Wanda's share. Irs 1040 ez His carryover to 2012 is $5,000. Irs 1040 ez Illustrated Form 1045 The following example illustrates how to use Form 1045 to claim an NOL deduction in a carryback year. Irs 1040 ez It includes a filled-in page 1 of Form 1045. Irs 1040 ez Example. Irs 1040 ez Martha Sanders is a self-employed contractor. Irs 1040 ez Martha's 2013 deductions are more than her 2013 income because of a business loss. Irs 1040 ez She uses Form 1045 to carry back her NOL 2 years and claim an NOL deduction in 2011. Irs 1040 ez Her filing status in both years was single. Irs 1040 ez See the filled-in Form 1045 later. Irs 1040 ez Martha figures her 2013 NOL on Form 1045, Schedule A (not shown). Irs 1040 ez (For an example using Form 1045, Schedule A, see Illustrated Form 1045, Schedule A under How To Figure an NOL , earlier.

Irs 1040 ez Form 1045, page 1 How To Figure an NOL Carryover If your NOL is more than your taxable income for the year to which you carry it (figured before deducting the NOL), you may have an NOL carryover. Irs 1040 ez You must make certain modifications to your taxable income to determine how much NOL you will use up in that year and how much you can carry over to the next tax year. Irs 1040 ez Your carryover is the excess of your NOL deduction over your modified taxable income for the carryback or carryforward year. Irs 1040 ez If your NOL deduction includes more than one NOL, apply the NOLs against your modified taxable income in the same order in which you incurred them, starting with the earliest. Irs 1040 ez Modified taxable income. Irs 1040 ez   Your modified taxable income is your taxable income figured with the following changes. Irs 1040 ez You cannot claim an NOL deduction for the NOL carryover you are figuring or for any later NOL. Irs 1040 ez You cannot claim a deduction for capital losses in excess of your capital gains. Irs 1040 ez Also, you must increase your taxable income by the amount of any section 1202 exclusion. Irs 1040 ez You cannot claim the domestic production activities deduction. Irs 1040 ez You cannot claim a deduction for your exemptions for yourself, your spouse, or dependents. Irs 1040 ez You must figure any item affected by the amount of your adjusted gross income after making the changes in (1), (2), and (3), above, and certain other changes to your adjusted gross income that result from (1), (2), and (3). Irs 1040 ez This includes income and deduction items used to figure adjusted gross income (for example, IRA deductions), as well as certain itemized deductions. Irs 1040 ez To figure a charitable contribution deduction, do not include deductions for NOL carrybacks in the change in (1) but do include deductions for NOL carryforwards from tax years before the NOL year. Irs 1040 ez   Your taxable income as modified cannot be less than zero. Irs 1040 ez Form 1045, Schedule B. Irs 1040 ez   You can use Form 1045, Schedule B, to figure your modified taxable income for carryback years and your carryover from each of those years. Irs 1040 ez Do not use Form 1045, Schedule B, for a carryforward year. Irs 1040 ez If your 2013 return includes an NOL deduction from an NOL year before 2013 that reduced your taxable income to zero (to less than zero, if an estate or trust), see NOL Carryover From 2013 to 2014 , later. Irs 1040 ez Illustrated Form 1045, Schedule B The following example illustrates how to figure an NOL carryover from a carryback year. Irs 1040 ez It includes a filled-in Form 1045, Schedule B. Irs 1040 ez Example. Irs 1040 ez Ida Brown runs a small clothing shop. Irs 1040 ez In 2013, she has an NOL of $36,000 that she carries back to 2011. Irs 1040 ez She has no other carrybacks or carryforwards to 2011. Irs 1040 ez Ida's adjusted gross income in 2011 was $35,000, consisting of her salary of $36,000 minus a $1,000 capital loss deduction. Irs 1040 ez She is single and claimed only one personal exemption of $3,700. Irs 1040 ez During that year, she gave $1,450 in charitable contributions. Irs 1040 ez Her medical expenses were $3,000. Irs 1040 ez She also deducted $1,650 in taxes and $3,125 in home mortgage interest. Irs 1040 ez Her deduction for charitable contributions was not limited because her contributions, $1,450, were less than 50% of her adjusted gross income. Irs 1040 ez The deduction for medical expenses was limited to expenses over 7. Irs 1040 ez 5% of adjusted gross income (. Irs 1040 ez 075 × $35,000 = $2,625; $3,000 − $2,625 = $375). Irs 1040 ez The deductions for taxes and home mortgage interest were not subject to any limits. Irs 1040 ez She was able to claim $6,600 ($1,450 + $375 + $1,650 + $3,125) in itemized deductions and a personal exemption deduction of $3,700 for 2011. Irs 1040 ez She had no other deductions in 2011 (except the NOL deduction). Irs 1040 ez Her taxable income (figured without the NOL deduction) for the year was $24,700. Irs 1040 ez Ida's adjusted gross income in 2012 was $9,325, consisting of net business income from the clothing shop of $12,325 and a net capital loss of $3,000. Irs 1040 ez She did not itemize her deductions in 2012. Irs 1040 ez She deducted the standard deduction of $5,950 and the personal exemption deduction of $3,800. Irs 1040 ez She had no other deductions in 2012 (other than the NOL deduction). Irs 1040 ez Her taxable income, therefore, was ($425). Irs 1040 ez Ida's $36,000 carryback will result in her having 2011 taxable income of zero. Irs 1040 ez She then completes the column for the second preceding tax year ended 12/31/11 on Form 1045, Schedule B, to figure how much of her NOL she uses up in 2011 and how much she can carry over to 2012. Irs 1040 ez She completes the column for the first preceding tax year ended 12/31/12. Irs 1040 ez See the illustrated Form 1045, Schedule B , shown later. Irs 1040 ez Column 1, line 1. Irs 1040 ez Ida enters $36,000, her 2013 net operating loss, on line 1. Irs 1040 ez Column 1, line 2. Irs 1040 ez She enters $24,700, her 2011 taxable income (figured without the NOL deduction), on line 2. Irs 1040 ez Column 1, line 3. Irs 1040 ez Ida enters her net capital loss deduction of $1,000 on line 3. Irs 1040 ez Column 1, lines 4 and 5. Irs 1040 ez Ida had no section 1202 exclusion or domestic production activities deduction in 2011. Irs 1040 ez She enters zero on lines 4 and 5. Irs 1040 ez Column 1, line 6. Irs 1040 ez Although Ida's entry on line 3 modifies her adjusted gross income, that does not affect any other items included in her adjusted gross income. Irs 1040 ez Ida enters zero on line 6. Irs 1040 ez Column 1, line 7. Irs 1040 ez Ida had itemized deductions and entered $1,000 on line 3, so she completes lines 11 through 38 to figure her adjustment to itemized deductions. Irs 1040 ez On line 7, she enters the total adjustment from line 38. Irs 1040 ez Column 1, line 8. Irs 1040 ez Ida enters the deduction for her personal exemption of $3,700 for 2011. Irs 1040 ez Column 1, line 9. Irs 1040 ez After combining lines 2 through 8, Ida's modified taxable income is $29,475. Irs 1040 ez Column 1, line 10. Irs 1040 ez Ida figures her carryover to 2012 by subtracting her modified taxable income (line 9) from her NOL deduction (line 1). Irs 1040 ez She enters the $6,525 carryover on line 10. Irs 1040 ez She also enters the $6,525 as her NOL deduction for 2012 on Form 1045, page 1, line 10, in the “After carryback” column under the column for the first preceding tax year ended 12/31/12. Irs 1040 ez (For an illustrated example of page 1 of Form 1045, see Illustrated Form 1045 under How To Claim an NOL Deduction , earlier. Irs 1040 ez ) Next, Ida completes column 2 for the first preceding tax year ended 12/31/12. Irs 1040 ez Column 1, line 11. Irs 1040 ez Ida's adjusted gross income for 2011 was $35,000. Irs 1040 ez Column 1, line 12. Irs 1040 ez She adds lines 3 through 6 and enters $1,000 on line 12. Irs 1040 ez (This is her net capital loss deduction added back, which modifies her adjusted gross income. Irs 1040 ez ) Column 1, line 13. Irs 1040 ez Her modified adjusted gross income for 2011 is now $36,000. Irs 1040 ez Column 1, line 14. Irs 1040 ez On her 2011 tax return, she deducted $375 as medical expenses. Irs 1040 ez Column 1, line 15. Irs 1040 ez Her actual medical expenses were $3,000. Irs 1040 ez Column 1, line 16. Irs 1040 ez She multiplies her modified adjusted gross income, $36,000, by . Irs 1040 ez 075. Irs 1040 ez She enters $2,700 on line 16. Irs 1040 ez Column 1, line 17. Irs 1040 ez She substracts $2,700 from her actual medical expenses, $3,000. Irs 1040 ez She enters $300 on line 17. Irs 1040 ez This is her modified medical deduction. Irs 1040 ez Column 1, line 18. Irs 1040 ez The difference between her medical deduction and her modified medical deduction is $75. Irs 1040 ez She enters this on line 18. Irs 1040 ez Column 1, lines 19 through 21. Irs 1040 ez Ida had no deduction for qualified mortgage insurance premiums in 2011. Irs 1040 ez She skips lines 19 and 20 and enters zero on line 21. Irs 1040 ez Column 1, line 22. Irs 1040 ez She enters her modified adjusted gross income of $36,000 on line 22. Irs 1040 ez Column 1, line 23. Irs 1040 ez She had no other carrybacks to 2011 and enters zero on line 23. Irs 1040 ez Column 1, line 24. Irs 1040 ez Her modified adjusted gross income remains $36,000. Irs 1040 ez Column 1, line 25. Irs 1040 ez Her actual contributions for 2011 were $1,450, which she enters on line 25. Irs 1040 ez Column 1, line 26. Irs 1040 ez She now refigures her charitable contributions based on her modified adjusted gross income. Irs 1040 ez Her contributions are well below the 50% limit, so she enters $1,450 on line 26. Irs 1040 ez Column 1, line 27. Irs 1040 ez The difference is zero. Irs 1040 ez Column 1, lines 28 through 37. Irs 1040 ez Ida had no casualty losses or deductions for miscellaneous items in 2011. Irs 1040 ez She skips lines 28 through 31 and lines 33 through 36. Irs 1040 ez Ida enters zero on lines 32 and 37. Irs 1040 ez Column 1, line 38. Irs 1040 ez She combines lines 18, 21, 27, 32, and 37 and enters $75 on line 38. Irs 1040 ez She carries this figure to line 7. Irs 1040 ez Column 2, line 1.

Irs 1040 ez Form 1045, page 4 NOL Carryover From 2013 to 2014 If you had an NOL deduction carried forward from a year prior to 2013 that resulted in your having taxable income on your 2013 return of zero (of less than zero, if an estate or trust), complete Table 1 , Worksheet for NOL Carryover From 2013 to 2014, on the following pages. Irs 1040 ez It will help you figure your NOL to carry to 2014. Irs 1040 ez Keep the worksheet for your records. Irs 1040 ez Worksheet Instructions At the top of the worksheet, enter the NOL year for which you are figuring the carryover. Irs 1040 ez More than one NOL. Irs 1040 ez   If your 2013 NOL deduction includes amounts for more than one loss year, complete this worksheet only for one loss year. Irs 1040 ez To determine which year, start with your earliest NOL and subtract each NOL separately from your taxable income figured without the NOL deduction. Irs 1040 ez Complete this worksheet for the earliest NOL that results in your having taxable income below zero. Irs 1040 ez Your NOL carryover to 2014 is the total of the amount on line 10 of the worksheet and all later NOL amounts. Irs 1040 ez Example. Irs 1040 ez Your taxable income for 2013 is $5,000 without your $9,000 NOL deduction. Irs 1040 ez Your NOL deduction includes a $2,000 carryover from 2011 and a $7,000 carryover from 2012. Irs 1040 ez Subtract your 2011 NOL of $2,000 from $5,000. Irs 1040 ez This gives you taxable income of $3,000. Irs 1040 ez Your 2011 NOL is now completely used up. Irs 1040 ez Subtract your $7,000 2012 NOL from $3,000. Irs 1040 ez This gives you taxable income of ($4,000). Irs 1040 ez You now complete the worksheet for your 2012 NOL. Irs 1040 ez Your NOL carryover to 2014 is the unused part of your 2012 NOL from line 10 of the worksheet. Irs 1040 ez Line 2. Irs 1040 ez   Treat your NOL deduction for the NOL year entered at the top of the worksheet and later years as a positive amount.

Irs 1040 ez Excludable employer-provided adoption benefits. Irs 1040 ez The student loan interest deduction. Irs 1040 ez The tuition and fees deduction. Irs 1040 ez   If none of these items apply to you, enter zero on line 6. Irs 1040 ez Otherwise, increase your adjusted gross income by the total of lines 3 through 5 and your NOL deduction for the NOL year entered at the top of the worksheet and later years. Irs 1040 ez Using this increased adjusted gross income, refigure the items that apply, in the order listed above. Irs 1040 ez Your adjustment for each item is the difference between the refigured amount and the amount included on your return. Irs 1040 ez Combine the adjustments for previous items with your adjusted gross income before refiguring the next item. Irs 1040 ez Keep a record of your computations. Irs 1040 ez   Enter your total adjustments for the above items on line 6. Irs 1040 ez Line 7. Irs 1040 ez   Enter zero if you claimed the standard deduction or the amounts on lines 3 through 5 are zero. Irs 1040 ez Otherwise, use lines 11 through 33 of the worksheet to figure the amount to enter on this line. Irs 1040 ez Complete only those sections that apply to you. Irs 1040 ez Estates and trusts. Irs 1040 ez   Enter zero on line 7 if you did not claim any miscellaneous deductions on Form 1041, line 15c, or a casualty or theft loss. Irs 1040 ez Otherwise, refigure these deductions by substituting modified adjusted gross income (see below ) for adjusted gross income. Irs 1040 ez Subtract the recomputed deductions from those claimed on the return. Irs 1040 ez Enter the result on line 7. Irs 1040 ez Modified adjusted gross income. Irs 1040 ez   To refigure miscellaneous itemized deductions of an estate or trust (Form 1041, line 15c), modified adjusted gross income is the total of the following amounts. Irs 1040 ez The adjusted gross income on the return. Irs 1040 ez The amounts from lines 3 through 5 of the worksheet. Irs 1040 ez The exemption amount from Form 1041, line 20. Irs 1040 ez The NOL deduction for the NOL year entered at the top of the worksheet and for later years. Irs 1040 ez   To refigure the casualty and theft loss deduction of an estate or trust, modified adjusted gross income is the total of the following amounts.

Irs 1040 ez   If you had a contributions carryover from 2012 to 2013 and your NOL deduction includes an amount from an NOL year before 2012, you may have to reduce your contributions carryover. Irs 1040 ez Reduce the contributions carryover by the amount of any adjustment you made to your 2012 charitable contributions deduction when figuring your NOL carryover to 2013.
