Instructions for Form 8949. 1040x 2013 form Schedule D. 1040x 2013 form    Use Schedule D (Form 1040) to figure the overall gain or loss from transactions reported on Form 8949, and to report certain transactions you do not have to report on Form 8949. 1040x 2013 form Before completing Schedule D, you may have to complete other forms as shown below. 1040x 2013 form    Complete all applicable lines of Form 8949 before completing lines 1b, 2, 3, 8b, 9, or 10 of your applicable Schedule D. 1040x 2013 form Enter on Schedule D the combined totals from all your Forms 8949. 1040x 2013 form For a sale, exchange, or involuntary conversion of business property, complete Form 4797 (discussed later). 1040x 2013 form For a like-kind exchange, complete Form 8824. 1040x 2013 form See Reporting the exchange

home) on Form 8949 and Schedule D (Form 1040), as applicable. 1040x 2013 form Loss from the sale or exchange of property held for personal use is not deductible. 1040x 2013 form But if you had a loss from the sale or exchange of real estate held for personal use for which you received a Form 1099-S, report the transaction on Form 8949 and Schedule D, even though the loss is not deductible. 1040x 2013 form See the Instructions for Schedule D (Form 1040) and the Instructions for Form 8949 for information on how to report the transaction. 1040x 2013 form 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. 1040x 2013 form The time you own an asset before disposing of it is the holding period. 1040x 2013 form 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. 1040x 2013 form If you hold a capital asset 1 year or less, the gain or loss from its disposition is short term. 1040x 2013 form Report it in Part I of Form 8949 and/or Schedule D, as applicable. 1040x 2013 form If you hold a capital asset longer than 1 year, the gain or loss from its disposition is long term. 1040x 2013 form Report it in Part II of Form 8949 and/or Schedule D, as applicable. 1040x 2013 form   Table 4-1. 1040x 2013 form Do I Have a Short-Term or Long-Term Gain or Loss? IF you hold the property. 1040x 2013 form . 1040x 2013 form . 1040x 2013 form  THEN you have a. 1040x 2013 form . 1040x 2013 form . 1040x 2013 form 1 year or less, Short-term capital gain or  loss. 1040x 2013 form More than 1 year, Long-term capital gain or  loss. 1040x 2013 form These distinctions are essential to correctly arrive at your net capital gain or loss. 1040x 2013 form Capital losses are allowed in full against capital gains plus up to $3,000 of ordinary income. 1040x 2013 form See Capital Gains Tax Rates, later. 1040x 2013 form Holding period. 1040x 2013 form   To figure if you held property longer than 1 year, start counting on the day following the day you acquired the property. 1040x 2013 form The day you disposed of the property is part of your holding period. 1040x 2013 form Example. 1040x 2013 form If you bought an asset on June 19, 2012, you should start counting on June 20, 2012. 1040x 2013 form 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. 1040x 2013 form Patent property. 1040x 2013 form   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. 1040x 2013 form For more information, see Patents in chapter 2. 1040x 2013 form Inherited property. 1040x 2013 form   If you inherit property, you are considered to have held the property longer than 1 year, regardless of how long you actually held it. 1040x 2013 form Installment sale. 1040x 2013 form   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. 1040x 2013 form If it is short term in the year of sale, it continues to be short term when payments are received in later tax years. 1040x 2013 form    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. 1040x 2013 form Nontaxable exchange. 1040x 2013 form   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. 1040x 2013 form That is, it begins on the same day as your holding period for the old property. 1040x 2013 form Example. 1040x 2013 form You bought machinery on December 4, 2012. 1040x 2013 form On June 4, 2013, you traded this machinery for other machinery in a nontaxable exchange. 1040x 2013 form On December 5, 2013, you sold the machinery you got in the exchange. 1040x 2013 form Your holding period for this machinery began on December 5, 2012. 1040x 2013 form Therefore, you held it longer than 1 year. 1040x 2013 form Corporate liquidation. 1040x 2013 form   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. 1040x 2013 form Profit-sharing plan. 1040x 2013 form   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. 1040x 2013 form Gift. 1040x 2013 form   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. 1040x 2013 form For more information on basis, see Publication 551, Basis of Assets. 1040x 2013 form Real property. 1040x 2013 form   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. 1040x 2013 form   However, taking possession of real property under an option agreement is not enough to start the holding period. 1040x 2013 form The holding period cannot start until there is an actual contract of sale. 1040x 2013 form The holding period of the seller cannot end before that time. 1040x 2013 form Repossession. 1040x 2013 form   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. 1040x 2013 form Your holding period does not include the time between the original sale and the repossession. 1040x 2013 form That is, it does not include the period during which the first buyer held the property. 1040x 2013 form Nonbusiness bad debts. 1040x 2013 form   Nonbusiness bad debts are short-term capital losses. 1040x 2013 form For information on nonbusiness bad debts, see chapter 4 of Publication 550. 1040x 2013 form    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. 1040x 2013 form Net short-term capital gain or loss. 1040x 2013 form   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. 1040x 2013 form Do this by adding all your short-term capital gains. 1040x 2013 form Then add all your short-term capital losses. 1040x 2013 form Subtract the lesser total from the other. 1040x 2013 form The result is your net short-term capital gain or loss. 1040x 2013 form Net long-term capital gain or loss. 1040x 2013 form   Follow the same steps to combine your long-term capital gains and losses. 1040x 2013 form Include the following items. 1040x 2013 form Net section 1231 gain from Part I, Form 4797, after any adjustment for nonrecaptured section 1231 losses from prior tax years. 1040x 2013 form Capital gain distributions from regulated investment companies (mutual funds) and real estate investment trusts. 1040x 2013 form Your share of long-term capital gains or losses from partnerships, S corporations, and fiduciaries. 1040x 2013 form Any long-term capital loss carryover. 1040x 2013 form The result from combining these items with other long-term capital gains and losses is your net long-term capital gain or loss. 1040x 2013 form Net gain. 1040x 2013 form   If the total of your capital gains is more than the total of your capital losses, the difference is taxable. 1040x 2013 form Different tax rates may apply to the part that is a net capital gain. 1040x 2013 form See Capital Gains Tax Rates, later. 1040x 2013 form Net loss. 1040x 2013 form   If the total of your capital losses is more than the total of your capital gains, the difference is deductible. 1040x 2013 form But there are limits on how much loss you can deduct and when you can deduct it. 1040x 2013 form See Treatment of Capital Losses, next. 1040x 2013 form    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. 1040x 2013 form 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). 1040x 2013 form Table 4-2. 1040x 2013 form 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. 1040x 2013 form Ends on trading date you sold security. 1040x 2013 form U. 1040x 2013 form S. 1040x 2013 form Treasury notes and bonds If bought at auction, day after notification of bid acceptance. 1040x 2013 form If bought through subscription, day after subscription was submitted. 1040x 2013 form Nontaxable exchanges Day after date you acquired old property. 1040x 2013 form Gift If your basis is giver's adjusted basis, same day as giver's holding period began. 1040x 2013 form If your basis is FMV, day after date of gift. 1040x 2013 form Real property bought Generally, day after date you received title to the property. 1040x 2013 form 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. 1040x 2013 form Capital loss carryover. 1040x 2013 form   Generally, you have a capital loss carryover if either of the following situations applies to you. 1040x 2013 form Your net loss is more than the yearly limit. 1040x 2013 form Your taxable income without your deduction for exemptions is less than zero. 1040x 2013 form 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. 1040x 2013 form Example. 1040x 2013 form Bob and Gloria Sampson sold property in 2013. 1040x 2013 form The sale resulted in a capital loss of $7,000. 1040x 2013 form The Sampsons had no other capital transactions. 1040x 2013 form On their joint 2013 return, the Sampsons deduct $3,000, the yearly limit. 1040x 2013 form They had taxable income of $2,000. 1040x 2013 form The unused part of the loss, $4,000 ($7,000 − $3,000), is carried over to 2014. 1040x 2013 form If the Sampsons' capital loss had been $2,000, it would not have been more than the yearly limit. 1040x 2013 form Their capital loss deduction would have been $2,000. 1040x 2013 form They would have no carryover to 2014. 1040x 2013 form Short-term and long-term losses. 1040x 2013 form   When you carry over a loss, it retains its original character as either long term or short term. 1040x 2013 form A short-term loss you carry over to the next tax year is added to short-term losses occurring in that year. 1040x 2013 form A long-term loss you carry over to the next tax year is added to long-term losses occurring in that year. 1040x 2013 form A long-term capital loss you carry over to the next year reduces that year's long-term gains before its short-term gains. 1040x 2013 form   If you have both short-term and long-term losses, your short-term losses are used first against your allowable capital loss deduction. 1040x 2013 form 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. 1040x 2013 form 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). 1040x 2013 form Joint and separate returns. 1040x 2013 form   On a joint return, the capital gains and losses of spouses are figured as the gains and losses of an individual. 1040x 2013 form If you are married and filing a separate return, your yearly capital loss deduction is limited to $1,500. 1040x 2013 form Neither you nor your spouse can deduct any part of the other's loss. 1040x 2013 form   If you and your spouse once filed separate returns and are now filing a joint return, combine your separate capital loss carryovers. 1040x 2013 form 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. 1040x 2013 form Death of taxpayer. 1040x 2013 form   Capital losses cannot be carried over after a taxpayer's death. 1040x 2013 form They are deductible only on the final income tax return filed on the decedent's behalf. 1040x 2013 form The yearly limit discussed earlier still applies in this situation. 1040x 2013 form Even if the loss is greater than the limit, the decedent's estate cannot deduct the difference or carry it over to following years. 1040x 2013 form Corporations. 1040x 2013 form   A corporation can deduct capital losses only up to the amount of its capital gains. 1040x 2013 form In other words, if a corporation has a net capital loss, it cannot be deducted in the current tax year. 1040x 2013 form It must be carried to other tax years and deducted from capital gains occurring in those years. 1040x 2013 form For more information, see Publication 542. 1040x 2013 form 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. 1040x 2013 form These lower rates are called the maximum capital gains rates. 1040x 2013 form 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. 1040x 2013 form For 2013, the maximum tax rates for individuals are 0%, 15%, 20%, 25%, and 28%. 1040x 2013 form 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. 1040x 2013 form For more information, see chapter 4 of Publication 550. 1040x 2013 form Also see the Instructions for Schedule D (Form 1040). 1040x 2013 form Unrecaptured section 1250 gain. 1040x 2013 form   Generally, this is the part of any long-term capital gain on section 1250 property (real property) that is due to depreciation. 1040x 2013 form Unrecaptured section 1250 gain cannot be more than the net section 1231 gain or include any gain otherwise treated as ordinary income. 1040x 2013 form Use the worksheet in the Schedule D instructions to figure your unrecaptured section 1250 gain. 1040x 2013 form For more information about section 1250 property and net section 1231 gain, see chapter 3. 1040x 2013 form Form 4797 Use Form 4797 to

when the business use of section 179 or listed property decreases to 50% or less. 1040x 2013 form Gains or losses treated as ordinary gains or losses, if you are a trader in securities or commodities and made a mark-to-market election under Internal Revenue Code section 475(f). 1040x 2013 form You can use Form 4797 with Form 1040, 1065, 1120, or 1120S. 1040x 2013 form Section 1231 gains and losses. 1040x 2013 form   Show any section 1231 gains and losses in Part I. 1040x 2013 form Carry a net gain to Schedule D (Form 1040) as a long-term capital gain. 1040x 2013 form Carry a net loss to Part II of Form 4797 as an ordinary loss. 1040x 2013 form   If you had any nonrecaptured net section 1231 losses from the preceding 5 tax years, reduce your net gain by those losses and report the amount of the reduction as an ordinary gain in Part II. 1040x 2013 form Report any remaining gain on Schedule D (Form 1040). 1040x 2013 form See Section 1231 Gains and Losses in chapter 3. 1040x 2013
