Employment Taxes , and Self-employment tax , later. 1040x 2013 form Introduction You can deduct various federal, state, local, and foreign taxes directly attributable to your trade or business as business expenses. 1040x 2013 form You cannot deduct federal income taxes, estate and gift taxes, or state inheritance, legacy, and succession taxes. 1040x 2013 form Topics - This chapter discusses: When to deduct taxes Real estate taxes Income taxes Employment taxes Other taxes Useful Items - You may want to see: Publication 15 (Circular E), Employer's Tax Guide 334 Tax Guide for Small Business 510 Excise Taxes 538 Accounting Periods and Methods 551 Basis of Assets Form (and Instructions) Sch A (Form 1040) Itemized Deductions Sch SE (Form 1040) Self-Employment Tax 3115 Application for Change in Accounting Method 8959 Additional Medicare Tax See chapter 12 for information about getting publications and forms. 1040x 2013 form When To Deduct Taxes Generally, you can only deduct taxes in the year you pay them. 1040x 2013 form This applies whether you use the cash method or an accrual method of accounting. 1040x 2013 form Under an accrual method, you can deduct a tax before you pay it if you meet the exception for recurring items discussed under Economic Performance in Publication 538. 1040x 2013 form You can also elect to ratably accrue real estate taxes as discussed later under Real Estate Taxes . 1040x 2013 form Limit on accrual of taxes. 1040x 2013 form   A taxing jurisdiction can require the use of a date for accruing taxes that is earlier than the date it originally required. 1040x 2013 form However, if you use an accrual method, and can deduct the tax before you pay it, use the original accrual date for the year of change and all future years to determine when you can deduct the tax. 1040x 2013 form Example. 1040x 2013 form Your state imposes a tax on personal property used in a trade or business conducted in the state. 1040x 2013 form This tax is assessed and becomes a lien as of July 1 (accrual date). 1040x 2013 form In 2013, the state changed the assessment and lien dates from July 1, 2014, to December 31, 2013, for property tax year 2014. 1040x 2013 form Use the original accrual date (July 1, 2014) to determine when you can deduct the tax. 1040x 2013 form You must also use the July 1 accrual date for all future years to determine when you can deduct the tax. 1040x 2013 form Uniform capitalization rules. 1040x 2013 form   Uniform capitalization rules apply to certain taxpayers who produce real property or tangible personal property for use in a trade or business or for sale to customers. 1040x 2013 form They also apply to certain taxpayers who acquire property for resale. 1040x 2013 form Under these rules, you either include certain costs in inventory or capitalize certain expenses related to the property, such as taxes. 1040x 2013 form For more information, see chapter 1. 1040x 2013 form Carrying charges. 1040x 2013 form   Carrying charges include taxes you pay to carry or develop real estate or to carry, transport, or install personal property. 1040x 2013 form You can elect to capitalize carrying charges not subject to the uniform capitalization rules if they are otherwise deductible. 1040x 2013 form For more information, see chapter 7. 1040x 2013 form Refunds of taxes. 1040x 2013 form   If you receive a refund for any taxes you deducted in an earlier year, include the refund in income to the extent the deduction reduced your federal income tax in the earlier year. 1040x 2013 form For more information, see Recovery of amount deducted (tax benefit rule) in chapter 1. 1040x 2013 form    You must include in income any interest you receive on tax refunds. 1040x 2013 form Real Estate Taxes Deductible real estate taxes are any state, local, or foreign taxes on real estate levied for the general public welfare. 1040x 2013 form The taxing authority must base the taxes on the assessed value of the real estate and charge them uniformly against all property under its jurisdiction. 1040x 2013 form Deductible real estate taxes generally do not include taxes charged for local benefits and improvements that increase the value of the property. 1040x 2013 form See Taxes for local benefits , later. 1040x 2013 form If you use an accrual method, you generally cannot accrue real estate taxes until you pay them to the government authority. 1040x 2013 form However, you can elect to ratably accrue the taxes during the year. 1040x 2013 form See Electing to ratably accrue , later. 1040x 2013 form Taxes for local benefits. 1040x 2013 form   Generally, you cannot deduct taxes charged for local benefits and improvements that tend to increase the value of your property. 1040x 2013 form These include assessments for streets, sidewalks, water mains, sewer lines, and public parking facilities. 1040x 2013 form You should increase the basis of your property by the amount of the assessment. 1040x 2013 form   You can deduct taxes for these local benefits only if the taxes are for maintenance, repairs, or interest charges related to those benefits. 1040x 2013 form If part of the tax is for maintenance, repairs, or interest, you must be able to show how much of the tax is for these expenses to claim a deduction for that part of the tax. 1040x 2013 form Example. 1040x 2013 form To improve downtown commercial business, Waterfront City converted a downtown business area street into an enclosed pedestrian mall. 1040x 2013 form The city assessed the full cost of construction, financed with 10-year bonds, against the affected properties. 1040x 2013 form The city is paying the principal and interest with the annual payments made by the property owners. 1040x 2013 form The assessments for construction costs are not deductible as taxes or as business expenses, but are depreciable capital expenses. 1040x 2013 form The part of the payments used to pay the interest charges on the bonds is deductible as taxes. 1040x 2013 form Charges for services. 1040x 2013 form   Water bills, sewerage, and other service charges assessed against your business property are not real estate taxes, but are deductible as business expenses. 1040x 2013 form Purchase or sale of real estate. 1040x 2013 form   If real estate is sold, the real estate taxes must be allocated between the buyer and the seller. 1040x 2013 form   The buyer and seller must allocate the real estate taxes according to the number of days in the real property tax year (the period to which the tax imposed relates) that each owned the property. 1040x 2013 form Treat the seller as paying the taxes up to but not including the date of sale. 1040x 2013 form Treat the buyer as paying the taxes beginning with the date of sale. 1040x 2013 form You can usually find this information on the settlement statement you received at closing. 1040x 2013 form   If you (the seller) use an accrual method and have not elected to ratably accrue real estate taxes, you are considered to have accrued your part of the tax on the date you sell the property. 1040x 2013 form Example. 1040x 2013 form Alberto Verde, a calendar year accrual method taxpayer, owns real estate in Olmo County. 1040x 2013 form He has not elected to ratably accrue property taxes. 1040x 2013 form November 30 of each year is the assessment and lien date for the current real property tax year, which is the calendar year. 1040x 2013 form He sold the property on June 30, 2013. 1040x 2013 form Under his accounting method he would not be able to claim a deduction for the taxes because the sale occurred before November 30. 1040x 2013 form He is treated as having accrued his part of the tax, 181/366  (January 1–June 29), on June 30, and he can deduct it for 2013. 1040x 2013 form Electing to ratably accrue. 1040x 2013 form   If you use an accrual method, you can elect to accrue real estate tax related to a definite period ratably over that period. 1040x 2013 form Example. 1040x 2013 form Juan Sanchez is a calendar year taxpayer who uses an accrual method. 1040x 2013 form His real estate taxes for the real property tax year, July 1, 2013, to June 30, 2014, are $1,200. 1040x 2013 form July 1 is the assessment and lien date. 1040x 2013 form If Juan elects to ratably accrue the taxes, $600 will accrue in 2013 ($1,200 × 6/12, July 1–December 31) and the balance will accrue in 2014. 1040x 2013 form Separate elections. 1040x 2013 form   You can elect to ratably accrue the taxes for each separate trade or business and for nonbusiness activities if you account for them separately. 1040x 2013 form Once you elect to ratably accrue real estate taxes, you must use that method unless you get permission from the IRS to change. 1040x 2013 form See Form 3115 , later. 1040x 2013 form Making the election. 1040x 2013 form   If you elect to ratably accrue the taxes for the first year in which you incur real estate taxes, attach a statement to your income tax return for that year. 1040x 2013 form The statement should show all the following items. 1040x 2013 form The trades or businesses to which the election applies and the accounting method or methods used. 1040x 2013 form The period to which the taxes relate. 1040x 2013 form The computation of the real estate tax deduction for that first year. 1040x 2013 form   Generally, you must file your return by the due date (including extensions). 1040x 2013 form However, if you timely filed your return for the year without electing to ratably accrue, you can still make the election by filing an amended return within 6 months after the due date of the return (excluding extensions). 1040x 2013 form Attach the statement to the amended return and write “Filed pursuant to section 301. 1040x 2013 form 9100-2” on the statement. 1040x 2013 form File the amended return at the same address where you filed the original return. 1040x 2013 form Form 3115. 1040x 2013 form    If you elect to ratably accrue real estate taxes for a year after the first year in which you incur real estate taxes, or if you want to revoke your election to ratably accrue real estate taxes, file Form 3115. 1040x 2013 form For more information, including applicable time frames for filing, see the Instructions for Form 3115. 1040x 2013 form Note. 1040x 2013 form If you are filing an application for a change in accounting

evidence of denial of the liability. 1040x 2013 form   However, if you consistently deduct additional assessments in the year they are paid or finally determined (including those for which there was

taxes. 1040x 2013 form Example. 1040x 2013 form You pay your employee $18,000 a year. 1040x 2013 form However, after you withhold various taxes, your employee receives $14,500. 1040x 2013 form You also pay an additional $1,500 in employment taxes. 1040x 2013 form You should deduct the full $18,000 as wages. 1040x 2013 form You can deduct the $1,500 you pay from your own funds as taxes. 1040x
