Tax adjustment form   In determining whether an individual directly or indirectly owns any of the outstanding stock of a corporation or an interest in a partnership for a loss on a sale or exchange, the following rules apply. Tax adjustment form Stock or a partnership interest directly or indirectly owned by or for a corporation, partnership, estate, or trust is considered owned proportionately by or for its shareholders, partners, or beneficiaries. Tax adjustment form (However, for a partnership interest owned by or for a C corporation, this applies only to shareholders who directly or indirectly own 5% or more in value of the stock of the corporation. Tax adjustment form ) An individual is considered as owning the stock or partnership interest directly or indirectly owned by or for his or her family. Tax adjustment form Family includes only brothers, sisters, half-brothers, half-sisters, spouse, ancestors, and lineal descendants. Tax adjustment form An individual owning (other than by applying (2)) any stock in a corporation is considered to own the stock directly or indirectly owned by or for his or her partner. Tax adjustment form For purposes of applying (1), (2), or (3), stock or a partnership interest constructively owned by a person under (1) is treated as actually owned by that person. Tax adjustment form But stock or a partnership interest constructively owned by an individual under (2) or (3) is not treated as owned by the individual for reapplying either (2) or (3) to make another person the constructive owner of that stock or partnership interest. Tax adjustment form Indirect transactions. Tax adjustment form   You cannot deduct your loss on the sale of stock through your broker if under a prearranged plan a related person or entity buys the same stock you had owned. Tax adjustment form This does not apply to a cross-trade between related parties through an exchange that is purely coincidental and is not prearranged. Tax adjustment form Property received from a related person. Tax adjustment form   If, in a purchase or exchange, you received property from a related person who had a loss that was not allowable and you later sell or exchange the property at a gain, you recognize the gain only to the extent it is more than the loss previously disallowed to the related person. Tax adjustment form This rule applies only to the original transferee. Tax adjustment form Example 1. Tax adjustment form Your brother sold stock to you for $7,600. Tax adjustment form His cost basis was $10,000. Tax adjustment form His loss of $2,400 was not deductible. Tax adjustment form You later sell the same stock to an unrelated party for $10,500, realizing a gain of $2,900 ($10,500 − $7,600). Tax adjustment form Your recognized gain is only $500, the gain that is more than the $2,400 loss not allowed to your brother. Tax adjustment form Example 2. Tax adjustment form Assume the same facts as in Example 1, except that you sell the stock for $6,900 instead of $10,500. Tax adjustment form Your recognized loss is only $700 ($7,600 − $6,900). Tax adjustment form You cannot deduct the loss not allowed to your brother. Tax adjustment form Other Dispositions This section discusses rules for determining the treatment of gain or loss from various dispositions of property. Tax adjustment form Sale of a Business The sale of a business usually is not a sale of one asset. Tax adjustment form Instead, all the assets of the business are sold. Tax adjustment form Generally, when this occurs, each asset is treated as being sold separately for determining the treatment of gain or loss. Tax adjustment form A business usually has many assets. Tax adjustment form When sold, these assets must be classified as capital assets, depreciable property used in the business, real property used in the business, or property held for sale to customers, such as inventory or stock in trade. Tax adjustment form The gain or loss on each asset is figured separately. Tax adjustment form The sale of capital assets results in capital gain or loss. Tax adjustment form The sale of real property or depreciable property used in the business and held longer than 1 year results in gain or loss from a section 1231 transaction (discussed in chapter 3). Tax adjustment form The sale of inventory results in ordinary income or loss. Tax adjustment form Partnership interests. Tax adjustment form   An interest in a partnership or joint venture is treated as a capital asset when sold. Tax adjustment form The part of any gain or loss from unrealized receivables or inventory items will be treated as ordinary gain or loss. Tax adjustment form For more information, see Disposition of Partner's Interest in Publication 541. Tax adjustment form Corporation interests. Tax adjustment form   Your interest in a corporation is represented by stock certificates. Tax adjustment form When you sell these certificates, you usually realize capital gain or loss. Tax adjustment form For information on the sale of stock, see chapter 4 in Publication 550. Tax adjustment form Corporate liquidations. Tax adjustment form   Corporate liquidations of property generally are treated as a sale or exchange. Tax adjustment form Gain or loss generally is recognized by the corporation on a liquidating sale of its assets. Tax adjustment form Gain or loss generally is recognized also on a liquidating distribution of assets as if the corporation sold the assets to the distributee at fair market value. Tax adjustment form   In certain cases in which the distributee is a corporation in control of the distributing corporation, the distribution may not be taxable. Tax adjustment form For more information, see section 332 of the Internal Revenue Code and the related regulations. Tax adjustment form Allocation of consideration paid for a business. Tax adjustment form   The sale of a trade or business for a lump sum is considered a sale of each individual asset rather than of a single asset. Tax adjustment form Except for assets exchanged under any nontaxable exchange rules, both the buyer and seller of a business must use the residual method (explained later) to allocate the consideration to each business asset transferred. Tax adjustment form This method determines gain or loss from the transfer of each asset and how much of the consideration is for goodwill and certain other intangible property. Tax adjustment form It also determines the buyer's basis in the business assets. Tax adjustment form Consideration. Tax adjustment form   The buyer's consideration is the cost of the assets acquired. Tax adjustment form The seller's consideration is the amount realized (money plus the fair market value of property received) from the sale of assets. Tax adjustment form Residual method. Tax adjustment form   The residual method must be used for any transfer of a group of assets that constitutes a trade or business and for which the buyer's basis is determined only by the amount paid for the assets. Tax adjustment form This applies to both direct and indirect transfers, such as the sale of a business or the sale of a partnership interest in which the basis of the buyer's share of the partnership assets is adjusted for the amount paid under section 743(b) of the Internal Revenue Code. Tax adjustment form Section 743(b) applies if a partnership has an election in effect under section 754 of the Internal Revenue Code. Tax adjustment form   A group of assets constitutes a trade or business if either of the following applies. Tax adjustment form Goodwill or going concern value could, under any circumstances, attach to them. Tax adjustment form The use of the assets would constitute an active trade or business under section 355 of the Internal Revenue Code. Tax adjustment form   The residual method provides for the consideration to be reduced first by the amount of Class I assets (defined below). Tax adjustment form The consideration remaining after this reduction must be allocated among the various business assets in a certain order. Tax adjustment form See Classes of assets next for the complete order. Tax adjustment form Classes of assets. Tax adjustment form   The following definitions are the classifications for deemed or actual asset acquisitions. Tax adjustment form Allocate the consideration among the assets in the following order. Tax adjustment form The amount allocated to an asset, other than a Class VII asset, cannot exceed its fair market value on the purchase date. Tax adjustment form The amount you can allocate to an asset also is subject to any applicable limits under the Internal Revenue Code or general principles of tax law. Tax adjustment form Class I assets are cash and general deposit accounts (including checking and savings accounts but excluding certificates of deposit). Tax adjustment form Class II assets are certificates of deposit, U. Tax adjustment form S. Tax adjustment form Government securities, foreign currency, and actively traded personal property, including stock and securities. Tax adjustment form Class III assets are accounts receivable, other debt instruments, and assets that you mark to market at least annually for federal income tax purposes. Tax adjustment form However, see section 1. Tax adjustment form 338-6(b)(2)(iii) of the regulations for exceptions that apply to debt instruments issued by persons related to a target corporation, contingent debt instruments, and debt instruments convertible into stock or other property. Tax adjustment form Class IV assets are property of a kind that would properly be included in inventory if on hand at the end of the tax year or property held by the taxpayer primarily for sale to customers in the ordinary course of business. Tax adjustment form Class V assets are all assets other than Class I, II, III, IV, VI, and VII assets. Tax adjustment form    Note. Tax adjustment form Furniture and fixtures, buildings, land, vehicles, and equipment, which constitute all or part of a trade or business are generally Class V assets. Tax adjustment form Class VI assets are section 197 intangibles (other than goodwill and going concern value). Tax adjustment form Class VII assets are goodwill and going concern value (whether the goodwill or going concern value qualifies as a section 197 intangible). Tax adjustment form   If an asset described in one of the classifications described above can be included in more than one class, include it in the lower numbered class. Tax adjustment form For example, if an asset is described in both Class II and Class IV, choose Class II. Tax adjustment form Example. Tax adjustment form The total paid in the sale of the assets of Company SKB is $21,000. Tax adjustment form No cash or deposit accounts or similar accounts were sold. Tax adjustment form The company's U. Tax adjustment form S. Tax adjustment form Government securities sold had a fair market value of $3,200. Tax adjustment form The only other asset transferred (other than goodwill and going concern value) was inventory with a fair market value of $15,000. Tax adjustment form Of the $21,000 paid for the assets of Company SKB, $3,200 is allocated to U. Tax adjustment form S. Tax adjustment form Government securities, $15,000 to inventory assets, and the remaining $2,800 to goodwill and going concern value. Tax adjustment form Agreement. Tax adjustment form   The buyer and seller may enter into a written agreement as to the allocation of any consideration or the fair market value of any of the assets. Tax adjustment form This agreement is binding on both parties unless the IRS determines the amounts are not appropriate. Tax adjustment form Reporting requirement. Tax adjustment form   Both the buyer and seller involved in the sale of business assets must report to the IRS the allocation of the sales price among section 197 intangibles and the other business assets. Tax adjustment form Use Form 8594, Asset Acquisition Statement Under Section 1060, to provide this information. Tax adjustment form Generally, the buyer and seller should each attach Form 8594 to their federal income tax return for the year in which the sale occurred. Tax adjustment form See the Instructions for Form 8594. Tax adjustment form Dispositions of Intangible Property Intangible property is any personal property that has value but cannot be seen or touched. Tax adjustment form It includes such items as patents, copyrights, and the goodwill value of a business. Tax adjustment form Gain or loss on the sale or exchange of amortizable or depreciable intangible property held longer than 1 year (other than an amount recaptured as ordinary income) is a section 1231 gain or loss. Tax adjustment form The treatment of section 1231 gain or loss and the recapture of amortization and depreciation as ordinary income are explained in chapter 3. Tax adjustment form See chapter 8 of Publication 535, Business Expenses, for information on amortizable intangible property and chapter 1 of Publication 946, How To Depreciate Property, for information on intangible property that can and cannot be depreciated. Tax adjustment form Gain or loss on dispositions of other intangible property is ordinary or capital depending on whether the property is a capital asset or a noncapital asset. Tax adjustment form The following discussions explain special rules that apply to certain dispositions of intangible property. Tax adjustment form Section 197 Intangibles Section 197 intangibles are certain intangible assets acquired after August 10, 1993 (after July 25, 1991, if chosen), and held in connection with the conduct of a trade or business or an activity entered into for profit whose costs are amortized over 15 years. Tax adjustment form They include the following assets. Tax adjustment form Goodwill. Tax adjustment form Going concern value. Tax adjustment form Workforce in place. Tax adjustment form Business books and records, operating systems, and other information bases. Tax adjustment form Patents, copyrights, formulas, processes, designs, patterns, know how, formats, and similar items. Tax adjustment form Customer-based intangibles. Tax adjustment form Supplier-based intangibles. Tax adjustment form Licenses, permits, and other rights granted by a governmental unit. Tax adjustment form Covenants not to compete entered into in connection with the acquisition of a business. Tax adjustment form Franchises, trademarks, and trade names. Tax adjustment form See chapter 8 of Publication 535 for a description of each intangible. Tax adjustment form Dispositions. Tax adjustment form   You cannot deduct a loss from the disposition or worthlessness of a section 197 intangible you acquired in the same transaction (or series of related transactions) as another section 197 intangible you still hold. Tax adjustment form Instead, you must increase the adjusted basis of your retained section 197 intangible by the nondeductible loss. Tax adjustment form If you retain more than one section 197 intangible, increase each intangible's adjusted basis. Tax adjustment form Figure the increase by multiplying the nondeductible loss by a fraction, the numerator (top number) of which is the retained intangible's adjusted basis on the date of the loss and the denominator (bottom number) of which is the total adjusted basis of all retained intangibles on the date of the loss. Tax adjustment form   In applying this rule, members of the same controlled group of corporations and commonly controlled businesses are treated as a single entity. Tax adjustment form For example, a corporation cannot deduct a loss on the sale of a section 197 intangible if, after the sale, a member of the same controlled group retains other section 197 intangibles acquired in the same transaction as the intangible sold. Tax adjustment form Covenant not to compete. Tax adjustment form   A covenant not to compete (or similar arrangement) that is a section 197 intangible cannot be treated as disposed of or worthless before you have disposed of your entire interest in the trade or business for which the covenant was entered into. Tax adjustment form Members of the same controlled group of corporations and commonly controlled businesses are treated as a single entity in determining whether a member has disposed of its entire interest in a trade or business. Tax adjustment form Anti-churning rules. Tax adjustment form   Anti-churning rules prevent a taxpayer from converting section 197 intangibles that do not qualify for amortization into property that would qualify for amortization. Tax adjustment form However, these rules do not apply to part of the basis of property acquired by certain related persons if the transferor elects to do both the following. Tax adjustment form Recognize gain on the transfer of the property. Tax adjustment form Pay income tax on the gain at the highest tax rate. Tax adjustment form   If the transferor is a partnership or S corporation, the partnership or S corporation (not the partners or shareholders) can make the election. Tax adjustment form But each partner or shareholder must pay the tax on his or her share of gain. Tax adjustment form   To make the election, you, as the transferor, must attach a statement containing certain information to your income tax return for the year of the transfer. Tax adjustment form You must file the tax return by the due date (including extensions). Tax adjustment form You must also notify the transferee of the election in writing by the due date of the return. Tax adjustment form   If you timely filed your return without making the election, you can make the election by filing an amended return within 6 months after the due date of the return (excluding extensions). Tax adjustment form Attach the statement to the amended return and write “Filed pursuant to section 301. Tax adjustment form 9100-2” at the top of the statement. Tax adjustment form File the amended return at the same address the original return was filed. Tax adjustment form For more information about making the election, see Regulations section 1. Tax adjustment form 197-2(h)(9). Tax adjustment form For information about reporting the tax on your income tax return, see the Instructions for Form 4797. Tax adjustment form Patents The transfer of a patent by an individual is treated as a sale or exchange of a capital asset held longer than 1 year. Tax adjustment form This applies even if the payments for the patent are made periodically during the transferee's use or are contingent on the productivity, use, or disposition of the patent. Tax adjustment form For information on the treatment of gain or loss on the transfer of capital assets, see chapter 4. Tax adjustment form This treatment applies to your transfer of a patent if you meet all the following conditions. Tax adjustment form You are the holder of the patent. Tax adjustment form You transfer the patent other than by gift, inheritance, or devise. Tax adjustment form You transfer all substantial rights to the patent or an undivided interest in all such rights. Tax adjustment form You do not transfer the patent to a related person. Tax adjustment form Holder. Tax adjustment form   You are the holder of a patent if you are either of the following. Tax adjustment form The individual whose effort created the patent property and who qualifies as the original and first inventor. Tax adjustment form The individual who bought an interest in the patent from the inventor before the invention was tested and operated successfully under operating conditions and who is neither related to, nor the employer of, the inventor. Tax adjustment form All substantial rights. Tax adjustment form   All substantial rights to patent property are all rights that have value when they are transferred. Tax adjustment form A security interest (such as a lien), or a reservation calling for forfeiture for nonperformance, is not treated as a substantial right for these rules and may be kept by you as the holder of the patent. Tax adjustment form   All substantial rights to a patent are not transferred if any of the following apply to the transfer. Tax adjustment form The rights are limited geographically within a country. Tax adjustment form The rights are limited to a period less than the remaining life of the patent. Tax adjustment form The rights are limited to fields of use within trades or industries and are less than all the rights that exist and have value at the time of the transfer. Tax adjustment form The rights are less than all the claims or inventions covered by the patent that exist and have value at the time of the transfer. Tax adjustment form Related persons. Tax adjustment form   This tax treatment does not apply if the transfer is directly or indirectly between you and a related person as defined earlier in the list under Nondeductible Loss, with the following changes. Tax adjustment form Members of your family include your spouse, ancestors, and lineal descendants, but not your brothers, sisters, half-brothers, or half-sisters. Tax adjustment form Substitute “25% or more” ownership for “more than 50%. Tax adjustment form ”   If you fit within the definition of a related person independent of family status, the brother-sister exception in (1), earlier, does not apply. Tax adjustment form For example, a transfer between a brother and a sister as beneficiary and fiduciary of the same trust is a transfer between related persons. Tax adjustment form The brother-sister exception does not apply because the trust relationship is independent of family status. Tax adjustment form Franchise, Trademark, or Trade Name If you transfer or renew a franchise, trademark, or trade name for a price contingent on its productivity, use, or disposition, the amount you receive generally is treated as an amount realized from the sale of a noncapital asset. Tax adjustment form A franchise includes an agreement that gives one of the parties the right to distribute, sell, or provide goods, services, or facilities within a specified area. Tax adjustment form Significant power, right, or continuing interest. Tax adjustment form   If you keep any significant power, right, or continuing interest in the subject matter of a franchise, trademark, or trade name that you transfer or renew, the amount you receive is ordinary royalty income rather than an amount realized from a sale or exchange. Tax adjustment form   A significant power, right, or continuing interest in a franchise, trademark, or trade name includes, but is not limited to, the following rights in the transferred interest. Tax adjustment form A right to disapprove any assignment of the interest, or any part of it. Tax adjustment form A right to end the agreement at will. Tax adjustment form A right to set standards of quality for products used or sold, or for services provided, and for the equipment and facilities used to promote such products or services.

Tax adjustment form A right to receive payments based on the productivity, use, or disposition of the transferred item of interest if those payments are a substantial part of the transfer agreement. Tax adjustment form Subdivision of Land If you own a tract of land and, to sell or exchange it, you subdivide it into individual lots or parcels, the gain normally is ordinary income. Tax adjustment form However, you may receive capital gain treatment on at least part of the proceeds provided you meet certain requirements. Tax adjustment form See section 1237 of the Internal Revenue Code. Tax adjustment form Timber Standing timber held as investment property is a capital asset. Tax adjustment form Gain or loss from its sale is reported as a capital gain or loss on Form 8949, and Schedule D (Form 1040), as applicable. Tax adjustment form If you held the timber primarily for sale to customers, it is not a capital asset. Tax adjustment form Gain or loss on its sale is ordinary business income or loss. Tax adjustment form It is reported in the gross receipts or sales and cost of goods sold items of your return. Tax adjustment form Farmers who cut timber on their land and sell it as logs, firewood, or pulpwood usually have no cost or other basis for that timber. Tax adjustment form These sales constitute a very minor part of their farm businesses. Tax adjustment form In these cases, amounts realized from such sales, and the expenses of cutting, hauling, etc. Tax adjustment form , are ordinary farm income and expenses reported on Schedule F (Form 1040), Profit or Loss From Farming. Tax adjustment form Different rules apply if you owned the timber longer than 1 year and elect to either: Treat timber cutting as a sale or exchange, or Enter into a cutting contract. Tax adjustment form Timber is considered cut on the date when, in the ordinary course of business, the quantity of felled timber is first definitely determined. Tax adjustment form This is true whether the timber is cut under contract or whether you cut it yourself. Tax adjustment form Under the rules discussed below, disposition of the timber is treated as a section 1231 transaction. Tax adjustment form See chapter 3. Tax adjustment form Gain or loss is reported on Form 4797. Tax adjustment form Christmas trees. Tax adjustment form   Evergreen trees, such as Christmas trees, that are more than 6 years old when severed from their roots and sold for ornamental purposes are included in the term timber. Tax adjustment form They qualify for both rules discussed below. Tax adjustment form Election to treat cutting as a sale or exchange. Tax adjustment form   Under the general rule, the cutting of timber results in no gain or loss. Tax adjustment form It is not until a sale or exchange occurs that gain or loss is realized. Tax adjustment form But if you owned or had a contractual right to cut timber, you can elect to treat the cutting of timber as a section 1231 transaction in the year the timber is cut. Tax adjustment form Even though the cut timber is not actually sold or exchanged, you report your gain or loss on the cutting for the year the timber is cut. Tax adjustment form Any later sale results in ordinary business income or loss. Tax adjustment form See Example, later. Tax adjustment form   To elect this treatment, you must: Own or hold a contractual right to cut the timber for a period of more than 1 year before it is cut, and Cut the timber for sale or for use in your trade or business. Tax adjustment form Making the election. Tax adjustment form   You make the election on your return for the year the cutting takes place by including in income the gain or loss on the cutting and including a computation of the gain or loss. Tax adjustment form You do not have to make the election in the first year you cut timber. Tax adjustment form You can make it in any year to which the election would apply. Tax adjustment form If the timber is partnership property, the election is made on the partnership return. Tax adjustment form This election cannot be made on an amended return. Tax adjustment form   Once you have made the election, it remains in effect for all later years unless you cancel it. Tax adjustment form   If you previously elected to treat the cutting of timber as a sale or exchange, you may revoke this election without the consent of the IRS. Tax adjustment form The prior election (and revocation) is disregarded for purposes of making a subsequent election. Tax adjustment form See Form T (Timber), Forest Activities Schedule, for more information. Tax adjustment form Gain or loss. Tax adjustment form   Your gain or loss on the cutting of standing timber is the difference between its adjusted basis for depletion and its fair market value on the first day of your tax year in which it is cut. Tax adjustment form   Your adjusted basis for depletion of cut timber is based on the number of units (feet board measure, log scale, or other units) of timber cut during the tax year and considered to be sold or exchanged. Tax adjustment form Your adjusted basis for depletion is also based on the depletion unit of timber in the account used for the cut timber, and should be figured in the same manner as shown in section 611 of the Internal Revenue Code and the related regulations. Tax adjustment form   Timber depletion is discussed in chapter 9 of Publication 535. Tax adjustment form Example. Tax adjustment form In April 2013, you had owned 4,000 MBF (1,000 board feet) of standing timber longer than 1 year. Tax adjustment form It had an adjusted basis for depletion of $40 per MBF. Tax adjustment form You are a calendar year taxpayer. Tax adjustment form On January 1, 2013, the timber had a fair market value (FMV) of $350 per MBF. Tax adjustment form It was cut in April for sale. Tax adjustment form On your 2013 tax return, you elect to treat the cutting of the timber as a sale or exchange. Tax adjustment form You report the difference between the fair market value and your adjusted basis for depletion as a gain. Tax adjustment form This amount is reported on Form 4797 along with your other section 1231 gains and losses to figure whether it is treated as capital gain or as ordinary gain. Tax adjustment form You figure your gain as follows. Tax adjustment form FMV of timber January 1, 2013 $1,400,000 Minus: Adjusted basis for depletion 160,000 Section 1231 gain $1,240,000 The fair market value becomes your basis in the cut timber and a later sale of the cut timber including any by-product or tree tops will result in ordinary business income or loss. Tax adjustment form Outright sales of timber. Tax adjustment form   Outright sales of timber by landowners qualify for capital gains treatment using rules similar to the rules for certain disposal of timber under a contract with retained economic interest (defined below). Tax adjustment form However, for outright sales, the date of disposal is not deemed to be the date the timber is cut because the landowner can elect to treat the payment date as the date of disposal (see below). Tax adjustment form Cutting contract. Tax adjustment form   You must treat the disposal of standing timber under a cutting contract as a section 1231 transaction if all the following apply to you. Tax adjustment form You are the owner of the timber. Tax adjustment form You held the timber longer than 1 year before its disposal. Tax adjustment form You kept an economic interest in the timber. Tax adjustment form   You have kept an economic interest in standing timber if, under the cutting contract, the expected return on your investment is conditioned on the cutting of the timber. Tax adjustment form   The difference between the amount realized from the disposal of the timber and its adjusted basis for depletion is treated as gain or loss on its sale. Tax adjustment form Include this amount on Form 4797 along with your other section 1231 gains or losses to figure whether it is treated as capital or ordinary gain or loss. Tax adjustment form Date of disposal. Tax adjustment form   The date of disposal is the date the timber is cut. Tax adjustment form However, for outright sales by landowners or if you receive payment under the contract before the timber is cut, you can elect to treat the date of payment as the date of disposal. Tax adjustment form   This election applies only to figure the holding period of the timber. Tax adjustment form It has no effect on the time for reporting gain or loss (generally when the timber is sold or exchanged). Tax adjustment form   To make this election, attach a statement to the tax return filed by the due date (including extensions) for the year payment is received. Tax adjustment form The statement must identify the advance payments subject to the election and the contract under which they were made. Tax adjustment form   If you timely filed your return for the year you received payment without making the election, you still can make the election by filing an amended return within 6 months after the due date for that year's return (excluding extensions). Tax adjustment form Attach the statement to the amended return and write “Filed pursuant to section 301. Tax adjustment form 9100-2” at the top of the statement. Tax adjustment form File the amended return at the same address the original return was filed. Tax adjustment form Owner. Tax adjustment form   The owner of timber is any person who owns an interest in it, including a sublessor and the holder of a contract to cut the timber. Tax adjustment form You own an interest in timber if you have the right to cut it for sale on your own account or for use in your business. Tax adjustment form Tree stumps. Tax adjustment form   Tree stumps are a capital asset if they are on land held by an investor who is not in the timber or stump business as a buyer, seller, or processor. Tax adjustment form Gain from the sale of stumps sold in one lot by such a holder is taxed as a capital gain. Tax adjustment form However, tree stumps held by timber operators after the saleable standing timber was cut and removed from the land are considered by-products. Tax adjustment form Gain from the sale of stumps in lots or tonnage by such operators is taxed as ordinary income. Tax adjustment form   See Form T (Timber) and its separate instructions for more information about dispositions of timber. Tax adjustment form Precious Metals and Stones, Stamps, and Coins Gold, silver, gems, stamps, coins, etc. Tax adjustment form , are capital assets except when they are held for sale by a dealer. Tax adjustment form Any gain or loss from their sale or exchange generally is a capital gain or loss. Tax adjustment form If you are a dealer, the amount received from the sale is ordinary business income. Tax adjustment form Coal and Iron Ore You must treat the disposal of coal (including lignite) or iron ore mined in the United States as a section 1231 transaction if both the following apply to you. Tax adjustment form You owned the coal or iron ore longer than 1 year before its disposal. Tax adjustment form You kept an economic interest in the coal or iron ore. Tax adjustment form For this rule, the date the coal or iron ore is mined is considered the date of its disposal. Tax adjustment form Your gain or loss is the difference between the amount realized from disposal of the coal or iron ore and the adjusted basis you use to figure cost depletion (increased by certain expenses not allowed as deductions for the tax year). Tax adjustment form This amount is included on Form 4797 along with your other section 1231 gains and losses. Tax adjustment form You are considered an owner if you own or sublet an economic interest in the coal or iron ore in place. Tax adjustment form If you own only an option to buy the coal in place, you do not qualify as an owner. Tax adjustment form In addition, this gain or loss treatment does not apply to income realized by an owner who is a co-adventurer, partner, or principal in the mining of coal or iron ore. Tax adjustment form The expenses of making and administering the contract under which the coal or iron ore was disposed of and the expenses of preserving the economic interest kept under the contract are not allowed as deductions in figuring taxable income. Tax adjustment form Rather, their total, along with the adjusted depletion basis, is deducted from the amount received to determine gain. Tax adjustment form If the total of these expenses plus the adjusted depletion basis is more than the amount received, the result is a loss. Tax adjustment form Special rule. Tax adjustment form   The above treatment does not apply if you directly or indirectly dispose of the iron ore or coal to any of the following persons. Tax adjustment form A related person whose relationship to you would result in the disallowance of a loss (see Nondeductible Loss under Sales and Exchanges Between Related Persons, earlier). Tax adjustment form An individual, trust, estate, partnership, association, company, or corporation owned or controlled directly or indirectly by the same interests that own or control your business. Tax adjustment form Conversion Transactions Recognized gain on the disposition or termination of any position held as part of certain conversion transactions is treated as ordinary income. Tax adjustment form This applies if substantially all your expected return is attributable to the time value of your net investment (like interest on a loan) and the transaction is any of the following. Tax adjustment form An applicable straddle (generally, any set of offsetting positions with respect to personal property, including stock). Tax adjustment form A transaction in which you acquire property and, at or about the same time, you contract to sell the same or substantially identical property at a specified price. Tax adjustment form Any other transaction that is marketed and sold as producing capital gain from a transaction in which substantially all of your expected return is due to the time value of your net investment.
