Taxact for 2011 See the Instructions for Schedule D (Form 1040) and the Instructions for Form 8949 for information on how to report the transaction. Taxact for 2011 Long and Short Term Where you report a capital gain or loss depends on how long you own the asset before you sell or exchange it. Taxact for 2011 The time you own an asset before disposing of it is the holding period. Taxact for 2011 If you received a Form 1099-B, (or substitute statement) box 1c may help you determine whether the gain or loss is short-term or long-term.

Taxact for 2011   Table 4-1. Taxact for 2011 Do I Have a Short-Term or Long-Term Gain or Loss? IF you hold the property. Taxact for 2011 . Taxact for 2011 . Taxact for 2011  THEN you have a. Taxact for 2011 . Taxact for 2011 . Taxact for 2011 1 year or less, Short-term capital gain or  loss. Taxact for 2011 More than 1 year, Long-term capital gain or  loss. Taxact for 2011 These distinctions are essential to correctly arrive at your net capital gain or loss. Taxact for 2011 Capital losses are allowed in full against capital gains plus up to $3,000 of ordinary income. Taxact for 2011 See Capital Gains Tax Rates, later. Taxact for 2011 Holding period. Taxact for 2011   To figure if you held property longer than 1 year, start counting on the day following the day you acquired the property. Taxact for 2011 The day you disposed of the property is part of your holding period. Taxact for 2011 Example. Taxact for 2011 If you bought an asset on June 19, 2012, you should start counting on June 20, 2012. Taxact for 2011 If you sold the asset on June 19, 2013, your holding period is not longer than 1 year, but if you sold it on June 20, 2013, your holding period is longer than 1 year. Taxact for 2011 Patent property. Taxact for 2011   If you dispose of patent property, you generally are considered to have held the property longer than 1 year, no matter how long you actually held it. Taxact for 2011 For more information, see Patents in chapter 2. Taxact for 2011 Inherited property. Taxact for 2011   If you inherit property, you are considered to have held the property longer than 1 year, regardless of how long you actually held it. Taxact for 2011 Installment sale. Taxact for 2011   The gain from an installment sale of an asset qualifying for long-term capital gain treatment in the year of sale continues to be long term in later tax years. Taxact for 2011 If it is short term in the year of sale, it continues to be short term when payments are received in later tax years. Taxact for 2011    The date the installment payment is received determines the capital gains rate that should be applied not the date the asset was sold under an installment contract. Taxact for 2011 Nontaxable exchange. Taxact for 2011   If you acquire an asset in exchange for another asset and your basis for the new asset is figured, in whole or in part, by using your basis in the old property, the holding period of the new property includes the holding period of the old property. Taxact for 2011 That is, it begins on the same day as your holding period for the old property. Taxact for 2011 Example. Taxact for 2011 You bought machinery on December 4, 2012. Taxact for 2011 On June 4, 2013, you traded this machinery for other machinery in a nontaxable exchange. Taxact for 2011 On December 5, 2013, you sold the machinery you got in the exchange. Taxact for 2011 Your holding period for this machinery began on December 5, 2012. Taxact for 2011 Therefore, you held it longer than 1 year. Taxact for 2011 Corporate liquidation. Taxact for 2011   The holding period for property you receive in a liquidation generally starts on the day after you receive it if gain or loss is recognized. Taxact for 2011 Profit-sharing plan. Taxact for 2011   The holding period of common stock withdrawn from a qualified contributory profit-sharing plan begins on the day following the day the plan trustee delivered the stock to the transfer agent with instructions to reissue the stock in your name. Taxact for 2011 Gift. Taxact for 2011   If you receive a gift of property and your basis in it is figured using the donor's basis, your holding period includes the donor's holding period. Taxact for 2011 For more information on basis, see Publication 551, Basis of Assets. Taxact for 2011 Real property. Taxact for 2011   To figure how long you held real property, start counting on the day after you received title to it or, if earlier, the day after you took possession of it and assumed the burdens and privileges of ownership. Taxact for 2011   However, taking possession of real property under an option agreement is not enough to start the holding period. Taxact for 2011 The holding period cannot start until there is an actual contract of sale. Taxact for 2011 The holding period of the seller cannot end before that time. Taxact for 2011 Repossession. Taxact for 2011   If you sell real property but keep a security interest in it and then later repossess it, your holding period for a later sale includes the period you held the property before the original sale, as well as the period after the repossession. Taxact for 2011 Your holding period does not include the time between the original sale and the repossession. Taxact for 2011 That is, it does not include the period during which the first buyer held the property. Taxact for 2011 Nonbusiness bad debts. Taxact for 2011   Nonbusiness bad debts are short-term capital losses. Taxact for 2011 For information on nonbusiness bad debts, see chapter 4 of Publication 550. Taxact for 2011    Net Gain or Loss The totals for short-term capital gains and losses and the totals for long-term capital gains and losses must be figured separately. Taxact for 2011 Net short-term capital gain or loss. Taxact for 2011   Combine your short-term capital gains and losses, including your share of short-term capital gains or losses from partnerships, S corporations, and fiduciaries and any short-term capital loss carryover. Taxact for 2011 Do this by adding all your short-term capital gains. Taxact for 2011 Then add all your short-term capital losses. Taxact for 2011 Subtract the lesser total from the other. Taxact for 2011 The result is your net short-term capital gain or loss. Taxact for 2011 Net long-term capital gain or loss. Taxact for 2011   Follow the same steps to combine your long-term capital gains and losses. Taxact for 2011 Include the following items. Taxact for 2011 Net section 1231 gain from Part I, Form 4797, after any adjustment for nonrecaptured section 1231 losses from prior tax years. Taxact for 2011 Capital gain distributions from regulated investment companies (mutual funds) and real estate investment trusts. Taxact for 2011 Your share of long-term capital gains or losses from partnerships, S corporations, and fiduciaries. Taxact for 2011 Any long-term capital loss carryover. Taxact for 2011 The result from combining these items with other long-term capital gains and losses is your net long-term capital gain or loss. Taxact for 2011 Net gain. Taxact for 2011   If the total of your capital gains is more than the total of your capital losses, the difference is taxable. Taxact for 2011 Different tax rates may apply to the part that is a net capital gain. Taxact for 2011 See Capital Gains Tax Rates, later. Taxact for 2011 Net loss. Taxact for 2011   If the total of your capital losses is more than the total of your capital gains, the difference is deductible. Taxact for 2011 But there are limits on how much loss you can deduct and when you can deduct it. Taxact for 2011 See Treatment of Capital Losses, next. Taxact for 2011    Treatment of Capital Losses If your capital losses are more than your capital gains, you can deduct the difference as a capital loss deduction even if you do not have ordinary income to offset it. Taxact for 2011 The yearly limit on the amount of the capital loss you can deduct is $3,000 ($1,500 if you are married and file a separate return). Taxact for 2011 Table 4-2. Taxact for 2011 Holding Period for Different Types of Acquisitions Type of acquisition: When your holding period starts: Stocks and bonds bought on a securities market Day after trading date you bought security. Taxact for 2011 Ends on trading date you sold security. Taxact for 2011 U. Taxact for 2011 S. Taxact for 2011 Treasury notes and bonds If bought at auction, day after notification of bid acceptance. Taxact for 2011 If bought through subscription, day after subscription was submitted. Taxact for 2011 Nontaxable exchanges Day after date you acquired old property. Taxact for 2011 Gift If your basis is giver's adjusted basis, same day as giver's holding period began. Taxact for 2011 If your basis is FMV, day after date of gift. Taxact for 2011 Real property bought Generally, day after date you received title to the property. Taxact for 2011 Real property repossessed Day after date you originally received title to the property, but does not include time between the original sale and date of repossession. Taxact for 2011 Capital loss carryover. Taxact for 2011   Generally, you have a capital loss carryover if either of the following situations applies to you. Taxact for 2011 Your net loss is more than the yearly limit. Taxact for 2011 Your taxable income without your deduction for exemptions is less than zero. Taxact for 2011 If either of these situations applies to you for 2013, see Capital Losses under Reporting Capital Gains and Losses in chapter 4 of Publication 550 to figure the amount you can carryover to 2014. Taxact for 2011 Example. Taxact for 2011 Bob and Gloria Sampson sold property in 2013. Taxact for 2011 The sale resulted in a capital loss of $7,000. Taxact for 2011 The Sampsons had no other capital transactions. Taxact for 2011 On their joint 2013 return, the Sampsons deduct $3,000, the yearly limit. Taxact for 2011 They had taxable income of $2,000. Taxact for 2011 The unused part of the loss, $4,000 ($7,000 − $3,000), is carried over to 2014. Taxact for 2011 If the Sampsons' capital loss had been $2,000, it would not have been more than the yearly limit. Taxact for 2011 Their capital loss deduction would have been $2,000. Taxact for 2011 They would have no carryover to 2014. Taxact for 2011 Short-term and long-term losses. Taxact for 2011   When you carry over a loss, it retains its original character as either long term or short term. Taxact for 2011 A short-term loss you carry over to the next tax year is added to short-term losses occurring in that year. Taxact for 2011 A long-term loss you carry over to the next tax year is added to long-term losses occurring in that year. Taxact for 2011 A long-term capital loss you carry over to the next year reduces that year's long-term gains before its short-term gains. Taxact for 2011   If you have both short-term and long-term losses, your short-term losses are used first against your allowable capital loss deduction. Taxact for 2011 If, after using your short-term losses, you have not reached the limit on the capital loss deduction, use your long-term losses until you reach the limit. Taxact for 2011 To figure your capital loss carryover from 2013 to 2014 use the Capital Loss Carryover Worksheet in the 2013 Instructions for Schedule D (Form 1040). Taxact for 2011 Joint and separate returns. Taxact for 2011   On a joint return, the capital gains and losses of spouses are figured as the gains and losses of an individual. Taxact for 2011 If you are married and filing a separate return, your yearly capital loss deduction is limited to $1,500. Taxact for 2011 Neither you nor your spouse can deduct any part of the other's loss. Taxact for 2011   If you and your spouse once filed separate returns and are now filing a joint return, combine your separate capital loss carryovers. Taxact for 2011 However, if you and your spouse once filed jointly and are now filing separately, any capital loss carryover from the joint return can be deducted only on the return of the spouse who actually had the loss. Taxact for 2011 Death of taxpayer. Taxact for 2011   Capital losses cannot be carried over after a taxpayer's death. Taxact for 2011 They are deductible only on the final income tax return filed on the decedent's behalf. Taxact for 2011 The yearly limit discussed earlier still applies in this situation. Taxact for 2011 Even if the loss is greater than the limit, the decedent's estate cannot deduct the difference or carry it over to following years. Taxact for 2011 Corporations. Taxact for 2011   A corporation can deduct capital losses only up to the amount of its capital gains. Taxact for 2011 In other words, if a corporation has a net capital loss, it cannot be deducted in the current tax year. Taxact for 2011 It must be carried to other tax years and deducted from capital gains occurring in those years. Taxact for 2011 For more information, see Publication 542. Taxact for 2011 Capital Gains Tax Rates The tax rates that apply to a net capital gain are generally lower than the tax rates that apply to other income. Taxact for 2011 These lower rates are called the maximum capital gains rates. Taxact for 2011 The term “net capital gain” means the amount by which your net long-term capital gain for the year is more than your net short-term capital loss. Taxact for 2011 For 2013, the maximum tax rates for individuals are 0%, 15%, 20%, 25%, and 28%. Taxact for 2011 Also, individuals, use the Qualified Dividends and Capital Gain Worksheet in the Instructions for Form 1040, or the Schedule D Tax Computation Worksheet in the Instructions for Schedule D (Form 1040) (whichever applies) to figure your tax if you have qualified dividends or net capital gain. Taxact for 2011 For more information, see chapter 4 of Publication 550. Taxact for 2011 Also see the Instructions for Schedule D (Form 1040). Taxact for 2011 Unrecaptured section 1250 gain. Taxact for 2011   Generally, this is the part of any long-term capital gain on section 1250 property (real property) that is due to depreciation. Taxact for 2011 Unrecaptured section 1250 gain cannot be more than the net section 1231 gain or include any gain otherwise treated as ordinary income. Taxact for 2011 Use the worksheet in the Schedule D instructions to figure your unrecaptured section 1250 gain. Taxact for 2011 For more information about section 1250 property and net section 1231 gain, see chapter 3. Taxact for 2011 Form 4797 Use Form 4797 to report: The sale or exchange of: Property used in your trade or business; Depreciable and amortizable property; Oil, gas, geothermal, or other mineral properties; and Section 126 property. Taxact for 2011 The involuntary conversion (from other than casualty or theft) of property used in your trade or business and capital assets held in connection with a trade or business or a transaction entered into for profit. Taxact for 2011 The disposition of noncapital assets (other than inventory or property held primarily for sale to customers in the ordinary course of your trade or business).
