ordinary income. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Applicable percentage. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Introduction When you dispose of property used in your farm business, your taxable gain or loss is usually treated as ordinary income (which is taxed at the same rates as wages and interest income) or capital gain (which is generally taxed at lower rates) under the rules for section 1231 transactions. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez When you dispose of depreciable property (section 1245 property or section 1250 property) at a gain, you may have to recognize all or part of the gain as ordinary income under the depreciation recapture rules. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Any gain remaining after applying the depreciation recapture rules is a section 1231 gain, which may be taxed as a capital gain. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Gains and losses from property used in farming are reported on Form 4797, Sales of Business Property. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Table 9-1 contains examples of items reported on Form 4797 and refers to the part of that form on which they first should be reported. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Topics - This chapter discusses: Section 1231 gains and losses Depreciation recapture Other gains Useful Items - You may want to see: Publication 544 Sales and Other Dispositions of Assets Form (and Instructions) 4797 Sales of Business Property See chapter 16 for information about getting publications and forms. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Section 1231 Gains and Losses Section 1231 gains and losses are the taxable gains and losses from section 1231 transactions (explained below). 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Their treatment as ordinary or capital gains depends on whether you have a net gain or a net loss from all of your section 1231 transactions in the tax year. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Table 9-1. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Where to First Report Certain Items on Form 4797 Type of property Held 1 year  or less Held more

a section 1231 transaction, first determine whether any of the gain is ordinary income under the depreciation recapture rules (explained later). 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Do not take that gain into account as section 1231 gain. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Section 1231 transactions. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez   Gain or loss on the following transactions is subject to section 1231 treatment. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Sale or exchange of cattle and horses. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez The cattle and horses must be held for draft, breeding, dairy, or sporting purposes and held for 24 months or longer. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Sale or exchange of other livestock. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez This livestock must be held for draft, breeding, dairy, or sporting purposes and held for 12 months or longer. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Other livestock includes hogs, mules, sheep, goats, donkeys, and other fur-bearing animals. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Other livestock does not include poultry. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Sale or exchange of depreciable personal property. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez This property must be used in your business and held longer than 1 year. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Generally, property held for the production of rents or royalties is considered to be used in a trade or business. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Examples of depreciable personal property include farm machinery and trucks. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez It also includes amortizable section 197 intangibles. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Sale or exchange of real estate. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez This property must be used in your business and held longer than 1 year. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Examples are your farm or ranch (including barns and sheds). 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Sale or exchange of unharvested crops. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez The crop and land must be sold, exchanged, or involuntarily converted at the same time and to the same person, and the land must have been held longer than 1 year. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez You cannot keep any right or option to reacquire the land directly or indirectly (other than a right customarily incident to a mortgage or other security transaction). 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Growing crops sold with a leasehold on the land, even if sold to the same person in a single transaction, are not included. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Distributive share of partnership gains and losses. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Your distributive share must be from the sale or exchange of property listed above and held longer than 1 year (or for the required period for certain livestock). 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Cutting or disposal of timber. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Special rules apply if you owned the timber longer than 1 year and elect to treat timber cutting as a sale or exchange, or you enter into a cutting contract, as described in chapter 8 under Timber . 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Condemnation. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez The condemned property (defined in chapter 11) must have been held longer than 1 year. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez It must be business property or a capital asset held in connection with a trade or business or a transaction entered into for profit, such as investment property. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez It cannot be property held for personal use. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Casualty or theft. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez The casualty or theft must have affected business property, property held for the production of rents or royalties, or investment property (such as notes and bonds). 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez You must have held the property longer than 1 year. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez However, if your casualty or theft losses are more than your casualty or theft gains, neither the gains nor the losses are taken into account in the section 1231 computation. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Section 1231 does not apply to personal casualty gains and losses. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez See chapter 11 for information on how to treat those gains and losses. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez If the property is not held for the required holding period, the transaction is not subject to section 1231 treatment, and any gain or loss is ordinary income reported in Part II of Form 4797. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez See Table 9-1. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Property for sale to customers. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez   A sale, exchange, or involuntary conversion of property held mainly for sale to customers is not a section 1231 transaction. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez If you will get back all, or nearly all, of your investment in the property by selling it rather than by using it up in your business, it is property held mainly for sale to customers. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Treatment as ordinary or capital. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez   To determine the treatment of section 1231 gains and losses, combine all of your section 1231 gains and losses for the year. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez If you have a net section 1231 loss, it is an ordinary loss. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez If you have a net section 1231 gain, it is ordinary income up to your nonrecaptured section 1231 losses from previous years, explained next. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez The rest, if any, is long-term capital gain. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Nonrecaptured section 1231 losses. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez   Your nonrecaptured section 1231 losses are your net section 1231 losses for the previous 5 years that have not been applied against a net section 1231 gain by treating the gain as ordinary income. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez These losses are applied against your net section 1231 gain beginning with the earliest loss in the 5-year period. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Example. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez In 2013, Ben has a $2,000 net section 1231 gain. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez To figure how much he has to report as ordinary income and long-term capital gain, he must first determine his section 1231 gains and losses from the previous 5-year period. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez From 2008 through 2012 he had the following section 1231 gains and losses. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Year Amount 2008 -0- 2009 -0- 2010 ($2,500) 2011 -0- 2012 $1,800   Ben uses this information to figure how to report his net section 1231 gain for 2013 as shown below. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez 1) Net section 1231 gain (2013) $2,000 2) Net section 1231 loss (2010) ($2,500)   3) Net section 1231 gain (2012) 1,800   4) Remaining net section 1231 loss from prior 5 years ($700)   5) Gain treated as  ordinary income $700 6) Gain treated as long-term  capital gain $1,300 His remaining net section 1231 loss from 2010 is completely recaptured in 2013. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Depreciation Recapture If you dispose of depreciable or amortizable property at a gain, you may have to treat all or part of the gain (even if it is otherwise nontaxable) as ordinary income. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez To figure any gain that must be reported as ordinary income, you must keep permanent records of the facts necessary to figure the depreciation or amortization allowed or allowable on your property. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez For more information, see chapter 3 of Publication 544. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Section 1245 Property A gain on the disposition of section 1245 property is treated as ordinary income to the extent of depreciation allowed or allowable. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Any recognized gain that is more than the part that is ordinary income is a section 1231 gain. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez See Treatment as ordinary or capital under Section 1231 Gains and Losses , earlier. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Section 1245 property includes any property that is or has been subject to an allowance for depreciation or amortization and that is any of the following types of property. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Personal property (either tangible or intangible). 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Other tangible property (except buildings and their structural components) used as any of the following. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez See Buildings and structural components below. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez An integral part of manufacturing, production, or extraction, or of furnishing certain services. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez A research facility in any of the activities in (a). 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez A facility in any of the activities in (a) above, for the bulk storage of fungible commodities (discussed later). 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez That part of real property (not included in (2)) with an adjusted basis reduced by (but not limited to) the following. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Amortization of certified pollution control facilities. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez The section 179 expense deduction. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Deduction for clean-fuel vehicles and certain refueling property. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Expenditures to remove architectural and transportation barriers to the handicapped and elderly. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Certain reforestation expenditures (as described under Reforestation Costs in chapter 7. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Single purpose agricultural (livestock) or horticultural structures. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Storage facilities (except buildings and their structural components) used in distributing petroleum or any primary product of petroleum. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Buildings and structural components. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez   Section 1245 property does not include buildings and structural components. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez The term building includes a house, barn, warehouse, or garage. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez The term structural component includes walls, floors, windows, doors, central air conditioning systems, light fixtures, etc. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez   Do not treat a structure that is essentially machinery or equipment as a building or structural component. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Also, do not treat a structure that houses property used as an integral part of an activity as a building or structural component if the structure's use is so closely related to the property's use that the structure can be expected to be replaced when the property it initially houses is replaced. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez   The fact that the structure is specially designed to withstand the stress and other demands of the property and cannot be used economically for other purposes indicates it is closely related to the use of the property it houses. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Structures such as oil and gas storage tanks, grain storage bins, and silos are not treated as buildings, but as section 1245 property. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Facility for bulk storage of fungible commodities. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez   This is a facility used mainly for the bulk storage of fungible commodities. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Bulk storage means storage of a commodity in a large mass before it is used. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez For example, if a facility is used to store oranges that have been sorted and boxed, it is not used for bulk storage. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez To be fungible, a commodity must be such that one part may be used in place of another. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Gain Treated as Ordinary Income The gain treated as ordinary income on the sale, exchange, or involuntary conversion of section 1245 property, including a sale and leaseback transaction, is the lesser of the following amounts. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez The depreciation (which includes any section 179 deduction claimed) and amortization allowed or allowable on the property. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez The gain realized on the disposition (the amount realized from the disposition minus the adjusted basis of the property). 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez For any other disposition of section 1245 property, ordinary income is the lesser of (1) above or the amount by which its fair market value (FMV) is more than its adjusted basis. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez For details, see chapter 3 of Publication 544. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Use Part III of Form 4797 to figure the ordinary income part of the gain. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Depreciation claimed on other property or claimed by other taxpayers. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez   Depreciation and amortization include the amounts you claimed on the section 1245 property as well as the following depreciation and amortization amounts. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Amounts you claimed on property you exchanged for, or converted to, your section 1245 property in a like-kind exchange or involuntary conversion. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez For details on exchanges of property that are not taxable, see Like-Kind Exchanges in chapter 8. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Amounts a previous owner of the section 1245 property claimed if your basis is determined with reference to that person's adjusted basis (for example, the donor's depreciation deductions on property you received as a gift and part of the transfer is a sale or exchange). 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Example. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Jeff Free paid $120,000 for a tractor in 2012. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez On February 23, 2013, he traded it for a chopper and paid an additional $30,000. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez To figure his depreciation deduction on the chopper for the current year, Jeff continues to use the basis of the tractor as he would have before the trade. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Jeff can also depreciate the additional $30,000 for the chopper. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Depreciation and amortization. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez   Depreciation and amortization deductions that must be recaptured as ordinary income include (but are not limited to) the following items. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez See Depreciation Recapture in chapter 3 of Publication 544 for more details. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Ordinary depreciation deductions. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Section 179 deduction (see chapter 7). 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Any special depreciation allowance. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Amortization deductions for all the following costs. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Acquiring a lease. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Lessee improvements. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Pollution control facilities. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Reforestation expenses. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Section 197 intangibles. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Qualified disaster expenses. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Franchises, trademarks, and trade names acquired before August 11, 1993. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Example. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez You file your returns on a calendar year basis. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez In February 2011, you bought and placed in service for 100% use in your farming business a light-duty truck (5-year property) that cost $10,000. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez You used the half-year convention and your MACRS deductions for the truck were $1,500 in 2011 and $2,550 in 2012. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez You did not claim the section 179 expense deduction for the truck. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez You sold it in May 2013 for $7,000. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez The MACRS deduction in 2013, the year of sale, is $893 (½ of $1,785). 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Figure the gain treated as ordinary income as follows. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez 1) Amount realized $7,000 2) Cost (February 2011) $10,000   3) Depreciation allowed or allowable (MACRS deductions: $1,500 + $2,550 + $893) 4,943   4) Adjusted basis (subtract line 3 from line 2) $5,057 5) Gain realized (subtract line 4 from line 1) 1,943 6) Gain treated as ordinary income (lesser of line 3 or line 5) $1,943 Depreciation allowed or allowable. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez   You generally use the greater of the depreciation allowed or allowable when figuring the part of gain to report as ordinary income. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez If, in prior years, you have consistently taken proper deductions under one method, the amount allowed for your prior years will not be increased even though a greater amount would have been allowed under another proper method. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez If you did not take any deduction at all for depreciation, your adjustments to basis for depreciation allowable are figured by using the straight line method. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez This treatment applies only when figuring what part of the gain is treated as ordinary income under the rules for section 1245 depreciation recapture. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Disposition of plants and animals. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez   If you elect not to use the uniform capitalization rules (see chapter 6), you must treat any plant you produce as section 1245 property. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez If you have a gain on the property's disposition, you must recapture the pre-productive expenses you would have capitalized if you had not made the election by treating the gain, up to the amount of these expenses, as ordinary income. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez For section 1231 transactions, show these expenses as depreciation on Form 4797, Part III, line 22. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez For plant sales that are reported on Schedule F (1040), Profit or Loss From Farming, this recapture rule does not change the reporting of income because the gain is already ordinary income. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez You can use the farm-price method or the unit-livestock-price method discussed in  chapter 2 to figure these expenses. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Example. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Janet Maple sold her apple orchard in 2013 for $80,000. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Her adjusted basis at the time of sale was $60,000. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez She bought the orchard in 2006, but the trees did not produce a crop until 2009. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Her pre-productive expenses were $6,000. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez She elected not to use the uniform capitalization rules. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Janet must treat $6,000 of the gain as ordinary income. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Section 1250 Property Section 1250 property includes all real property subject to an allowance for depreciation that is not and never has been section 1245 property. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez It includes buildings and structural components that are not section 1245 property (discussed earlier). 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez It includes a leasehold of land or section 1250 property subject to an allowance for depreciation. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez A fee simple interest in land is not section 1250 property because, like land, it is not depreciable. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Gain on the disposition of section 1250 property is treated as ordinary income to the extent of additional depreciation allowed or allowable. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez To determine the additional depreciation on section 1250 property, see Depreciation Recapture in chapter 3 of Publication 544. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez You will not have additional depreciation if any of the following apply to the property disposed of. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez You figured depreciation for the property using the straight line method or any other method that does not result in depreciation that is more than the amount figured by the straight line method and you have held the property longer than 1 year. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez You chose the alternate ACRS (straight line) method for the property, which was a type of 15-, 18-, or 19-year real property covered by the section 1250 rules. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez The property was nonresidential real property placed in service after 1986 (or after July 31, 1986, if the choice to use MACRS was made) and you held it longer than 1 year. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez These properties are depreciated using the straight line method. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez Installment Sale If you report the sale of property under the installment method, any depreciation recapture under section 1245 or 1250 is taxable as ordinary income in the year of sale. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez This applies even if no payments are received in that year. 2013 federal tax forms 1040ez If the gain is more than the depreciation recapture income,
