Amend 2011 tax return free It also discusses how to treat other kinds of payments you make that are related to your use of this property. Amend 2011 tax return free These include payments you make for taxes on the property. Amend 2011 tax return free Topics - This chapter discusses: The definition of rent Taxes on leased property The cost of getting a lease Improvements by the lessee Capitalizing rent expenses Rent Rent is any amount you pay for the use of property you do not own. Amend 2011 tax return free In general, you can deduct rent as an expense only if the rent is for property you use in your trade or business. Amend 2011 tax return free If you have or will receive equity in or title to the property, the rent is not deductible. Amend 2011 tax return free Unreasonable rent. Amend 2011 tax return free   You cannot take a rental deduction for unreasonable rent. Amend 2011 tax return free Ordinarily, the issue of reasonableness arises only if you and the lessor are related. Amend 2011 tax return free Rent paid to a related person is reasonable if it is the same amount you would pay to a stranger for use of the same property. Amend 2011 tax return free Rent is not unreasonable just because it is figured as a percentage of gross sales. Amend 2011 tax return free For examples of related persons, see Related persons in chapter 2, Publication 544. Amend 2011 tax return free Rent on your home. Amend 2011 tax return free   If you rent your home and use part of it as your place of business, you may be able to deduct the rent you pay for that part. Amend 2011 tax return free You must meet the requirements for business use of your home. Amend 2011 tax return free For more information, see Business use of your home in chapter 1. Amend 2011 tax return free Rent paid in advance. Amend 2011 tax return free   Generally, rent paid in your trade or business is deductible in the year paid or accrued. Amend 2011 tax return free If you pay rent in advance, you can deduct only the amount that applies to your use of the rented property during the tax year. Amend 2011 tax return free You can deduct the rest of your payment only over the period to which it applies. Amend 2011 tax return free Example 1. Amend 2011 tax return free You are a calendar year taxpayer and you leased a building for 5 years beginning July 1. Amend 2011 tax return free Your rent is $12,000 per year. Amend 2011 tax return free You paid the first year's rent ($12,000) on June 30. Amend 2011 tax return free You can deduct only $6,000 (6/12 × $12,000) for the rent that applies to the first year. Amend 2011 tax return free Example 2. Amend 2011 tax return free You are a calendar year taxpayer. Amend 2011 tax return free Last January you leased property for 3 years for $6,000 a year. Amend 2011 tax return free You paid the full $18,000 (3 × $6,000) during the first year of the lease. Amend 2011 tax return free Each year you can deduct only $6,000, the part of the lease that applies to that year. Amend 2011 tax return free Canceling a lease. Amend 2011 tax return free   You generally can deduct as rent an amount you pay to cancel a business lease. Amend 2011 tax return free Lease or purchase. Amend 2011 tax return free   There may be instances in which you must determine whether your payments are for rent or for the purchase of the property. Amend 2011 tax return free You must first determine whether your agreement is a lease or a conditional sales contract. Amend 2011 tax return free Payments made under a conditional sales contract are not deductible as rent expense. Amend 2011 tax return free Conditional sales contract. Amend 2011 tax return free   Whether an agreement is a conditional sales contract depends on the intent of the parties. Amend 2011 tax return free Determine intent based on the provisions of the agreement and the facts and circumstances that exist when you make the agreement. Amend 2011 tax return free No single test, or special combination of tests, always applies. Amend 2011 tax return free However, in general, an agreement may be considered a conditional sales contract rather than a lease if any of the following is true. Amend 2011 tax return free The agreement applies part of each payment toward an equity interest you will receive. Amend 2011 tax return free You get title to the property after you make a stated amount of required payments. Amend 2011 tax return free The amount you must pay to use the property for a short time is a large part of the amount you would pay to get title to the property. Amend 2011 tax return free You pay much more than the current fair rental value of the property. Amend 2011 tax return free You have an option to buy the property at a nominal price compared to the value of the property when you may exercise the option. Amend 2011 tax return free Determine this value when you make the agreement. Amend 2011 tax return free You have an option to buy the property at a nominal price compared to the total amount you have to pay under the agreement. Amend 2011 tax return free The agreement designates part of the payments as interest, or that part is easy to recognize as interest. Amend 2011 tax return free Leveraged leases. Amend 2011 tax return free   Leveraged lease transactions may not be considered leases. Amend 2011 tax return free Leveraged leases generally involve three parties: a lessor, a lessee, and a lender to the lessor. Amend 2011 tax return free Usually the lease term covers a large part of the useful life of the leased property, and the lessee's payments to the lessor are enough to cover the lessor's payments to the lender. Amend 2011 tax return free   If you plan to take part in what appears to be a leveraged lease, you may want to get an advance ruling. Amend 2011 tax return free Revenue Procedure 2001-28 on page 1156 of Internal Revenue Bulletin 2001-19 contains the guidelines the IRS will use to determine if a leveraged lease is a lease for federal income tax purposes. Amend 2011 tax return free Revenue Procedure 2001-29 on page 1160 of the same Internal Revenue Bulletin provides the information required to be furnished in a request for an advance ruling on a leveraged lease transaction. Amend 2011 tax return free Internal Revenue Bulletin 2001-19 is available at www. Amend 2011 tax return free irs. Amend 2011 tax return free gov/pub/irs-irbs/irb01-19. Amend 2011 tax return free pdf. Amend 2011 tax return free   In general, Revenue Procedure 2001-28 provides that, for advance ruling purposes only, the IRS will consider the lessor in a leveraged lease transaction to be the owner of the property and the transaction to be a valid lease if all the factors in the revenue procedure are met, including the following. Amend 2011 tax return free The lessor must maintain a minimum unconditional “at risk” equity investment in the property (at least 20% of the cost of the property) during the entire lease term. Amend 2011 tax return free The lessee may not have a contractual right to buy the property from the lessor at less than fair market value when the right is exercised. Amend 2011 tax return free The lessee may not invest in the property, except as provided by Revenue Procedure 2001-28. Amend 2011 tax return free The lessee may not lend any money to the lessor to buy the property or guarantee the loan used by the lessor to buy the property. Amend 2011 tax return free The lessor must show that it expects to receive a profit apart from the tax deductions, allowances, credits, and other tax attributes. Amend 2011 tax return free   The IRS may charge you a user fee for issuing a tax ruling. Amend 2011 tax return free For more information, see Revenue Procedure 2014-1 available at  www. Amend 2011 tax return free irs. Amend 2011 tax return free gov/irb/2014-1_IRB/ar05. Amend 2011 tax return free html. Amend 2011 tax return free Leveraged leases of limited-use property. Amend 2011 tax return free   The IRS will not issue advance rulings on leveraged leases of so-called limited-use property. Amend 2011 tax return free Limited-use property is property not expected to be either useful to or usable by a lessor at the end of the lease term except for continued leasing or transfer to a lessee. Amend 2011 tax return free See Revenue Procedure 2001-28 for examples of limited-use property and property that is not limited-use property. Amend 2011 tax return free Leases over $250,000. Amend 2011 tax return free   Special rules are provided for certain leases of tangible property. Amend 2011 tax return free The rules apply if the lease calls for total payments of more than $250,000 and any of the following apply. Amend 2011 tax return free Rents increase during the lease. Amend 2011 tax return free Rents decrease during the lease. Amend 2011 tax return free Rents are deferred (rent is payable after the end of the calendar year following the calendar year in which the use occurs and the rent is allocated). Amend 2011 tax return free Rents are prepaid (rent is payable before the end of the calendar year preceding the calendar year in which the use occurs and the rent is allocated). Amend 2011 tax return free These rules do not apply if your lease specifies equal amounts of rent for each month in the lease term and all rent payments are due in the calendar year to which the rent relates (or in the preceding or following calendar year). Amend 2011 tax return free   Generally, if the special rules apply, you must use an accrual method of accounting (and time value of money principles) for your rental expenses, regardless of your overall method of accounting. Amend 2011 tax return free In addition, in certain cases in which the IRS has determined that a lease was designed to achieve tax avoidance, you must take rent and stated or imputed interest into account under a constant rental accrual method in which the rent is treated as accruing ratably over the entire lease term. Amend 2011 tax return free For details, see section 467 of the Internal Revenue Code. Amend 2011 tax return free Taxes on Leased Property If you lease business property, you can deduct as additional rent any taxes you have to pay to or for the lessor. Amend 2011 tax return free When you can deduct these taxes as additional rent depends on your accounting method. Amend 2011 tax return free Cash method. Amend 2011 tax return free   If you use the cash method of accounting, you can deduct the taxes as additional rent only for the tax year in which you pay them. Amend 2011 tax return free Accrual method. Amend 2011 tax return free   If you use an accrual method of accounting, you can deduct taxes as additional rent for the tax year in which you can determine all the following. Amend 2011 tax return free That you have a liability for taxes on the leased property. Amend 2011 tax return free How much the liability is. Amend 2011 tax return free That economic performance occurred. Amend 2011 tax return free   The liability and amount of taxes are determined by state or local law and the lease agreement. Amend 2011 tax return free Economic performance occurs as you use the property. Amend 2011 tax return free Example 1. Amend 2011 tax return free Oak Corporation is a calendar year taxpayer that uses an accrual method of accounting. Amend 2011 tax return free Oak leases land for use in its business. Amend 2011 tax return free Under state law, owners of real property become liable (incur a lien on the property) for real estate taxes for the year on January 1 of that year. Amend 2011 tax return free However, they do not have to pay these taxes until July 1 of the next year (18 months later) when tax bills are issued. Amend 2011 tax return free Under the terms of the lease, Oak becomes liable for the real estate taxes in the later year when the tax bills are issued. Amend 2011 tax return free If the lease ends before the tax bill for a year is issued, Oak is not liable for the taxes for that year. Amend 2011 tax return free Oak cannot deduct the real estate taxes as rent until the tax bill is issued. Amend 2011 tax return free This is when Oak's liability under the lease becomes fixed. Amend 2011 tax return free Example 2. Amend 2011 tax return free The facts are the same as in Example 1 except that, according to the terms of the lease, Oak becomes liable for the real estate taxes when the owner of the property becomes liable for them. Amend 2011 tax return free As a result, Oak will deduct the real estate taxes as rent on its tax return for the earlier year. Amend 2011 tax return free This is the year in which Oak's liability under the lease becomes fixed. Amend 2011 tax return free Cost of Getting a Lease You may either enter into a new lease with the lessor of the property or get an existing lease from another lessee. Amend 2011 tax return free Very often when you get an existing lease from another lessee, you must pay the previous lessee money to get the lease, besides having to pay the rent on the lease. Amend 2011 tax return free If you get an existing lease on property or equipment for your business, you generally must amortize any amount you pay to get that lease over the remaining term of the lease. Amend 2011 tax return free For example, if you pay $10,000 to get a lease and there are 10 years remaining on the lease with no option to renew, you can deduct $1,000 each year. Amend 2011 tax return free The cost of getting an existing lease of tangible property is not subject to the amortization rules for section 197 intangibles discussed in chapter 8. Amend 2011 tax return free Option to renew. Amend 2011 tax return free   The term of the lease for amortization includes all renewal options plus any other period for which you and the lessor reasonably expect the lease to be renewed. Amend 2011 tax return free However, this applies only if less than 75% of the cost of getting the lease is for the term remaining on the purchase date (not including any period for which you may choose to renew, extend, or continue the lease). Amend 2011 tax return free Allocate the lease cost to the original term and any option term based on the facts and circumstances. Amend 2011 tax return free In some cases, it may be appropriate to make the allocation using a present value computation. Amend 2011 tax return free For more information, see Regulations section 1. Amend 2011 tax return free 178-1(b)(5). Amend 2011 tax return free Example 1. Amend 2011 tax return free You paid $10,000 to get a lease with 20 years remaining on it and two options to renew for 5 years each. Amend 2011 tax return free Of this cost, you paid $7,000 for the original lease and $3,000 for the renewal options. Amend 2011 tax return free Because $7,000 is less than 75% of the total $10,000 cost of the lease (or $7,500), you must amortize the $10,000 over 30 years. Amend 2011 tax return free That is the remaining life of your present lease plus the periods for renewal. Amend 2011 tax return free Example 2. Amend 2011 tax return free The facts are the same as in Example 1, except that you paid $8,000 for the original lease and $2,000 for the renewal options. Amend 2011 tax return free You can amortize the entire $10,000 over the 20-year remaining life of the original lease. Amend 2011 tax return free The $8,000 cost of getting the original lease was not less than 75% of the total cost of the lease (or $7,500). Amend 2011 tax return free Cost of a modification agreement. Amend 2011 tax return free   You may have to pay an additional “rent” amount over part of the lease period to change certain provisions in your lease. Amend 2011 tax return free You must capitalize these payments and amortize them over the remaining period of the lease. Amend 2011 tax return free You cannot deduct the payments as additional rent, even if they are described as rent in the agreement. Amend 2011 tax return free Example. Amend 2011 tax return free You are a calendar year taxpayer and sign a 20-year lease to rent part of a building starting on January 1. Amend 2011 tax return free However, before you occupy it, you decide that you really need less space. Amend 2011 tax return free The lessor agrees to reduce your rent from $7,000 to $6,000 per year and to release the excess space from the original lease. Amend 2011 tax return free In exchange, you agree to pay an additional rent amount of $3,000, payable in 60 monthly installments of $50 each. Amend 2011 tax return free   You must capitalize the $3,000 and amortize it over the 20-year term of the lease. Amend 2011 tax return free Your amortization deduction each year will be $150 ($3,000 ÷ 20). Amend 2011 tax return free You cannot deduct the $600 (12 × $50) that you will pay during each of the first 5 years as rent. Amend 2011 tax return free Commissions, bonuses, and fees. Amend 2011 tax return free   Commissions, bonuses, fees, and other amounts you pay to get a lease on property you use in your business are capital costs. Amend 2011 tax return free You must amortize these costs over the term of the lease. Amend 2011 tax return free Loss on merchandise and fixtures. Amend 2011 tax return free   If you sell at a loss merchandise and fixtures that you bought solely to get a lease, the loss is a cost of getting the lease. Amend 2011 tax return free You must capitalize the loss and amortize it over the remaining term of the lease. Amend 2011 tax return free Improvements by Lessee If you add buildings or make other permanent improvements to leased property, depreciate the cost of the improvements using the modified accelerated cost recovery system (MACRS). Amend 2011 tax return free Depreciate the property over its appropriate recovery period. Amend 2011 tax return free You cannot amortize the cost over the remaining term of the lease. Amend 2011 tax return free If you do not keep the improvements when you end the lease, figure your gain or loss based on your adjusted basis in the improvements at that time. Amend 2011 tax return free For more information, see the discussion of MACRS in Publication 946, How To Depreciate Property. Amend 2011 tax return free Assignment of a lease. Amend 2011 tax return free   If a long-term lessee who makes permanent improvements to land later assigns all lease rights to you for money and you pay the rent required by the lease, the amount you pay for the assignment is a capital investment. Amend 2011 tax return free If the rental value of the leased land increased since the lease began, part of your capital investment is for that increase in the rental value. Amend 2011 tax return free The rest is for your investment in the permanent improvements. Amend 2011 tax return free   The part that is for the increased rental value of the land is a cost of getting a lease, and you amortize it over the remaining term of the lease. Amend 2011 tax return free You can depreciate the part that is for your investment in the improvements over the recovery period of the property as discussed earlier, without regard to the lease term. Amend 2011 tax return free Capitalizing Rent Expenses Under the uniform capitalization rules, you must capitalize the direct costs and part of the indirect costs for certain production or resale activities. Amend 2011 tax return free Include these costs in the basis of property you produce or acquire for resale, rather than claiming them as a current deduction. Amend 2011 tax return free You recover the costs through depreciation, amortization, or cost of goods sold when you use, sell, or otherwise dispose of the property. Amend 2011 tax return free Indirect costs include amounts incurred for renting or leasing equipment, facilities, or land. Amend 2011 tax return free Uniform capitalization rules. Amend 2011 tax return free   You may be subject to the uniform capitalization rules if you do any of the following, unless the property is produced for your use other than in a business or an activity carried on for profit. Amend 2011 tax return free Produce real property or tangible personal property. Amend 2011 tax return free For this purpose, tangible personal property includes a film, sound recording, video tape, book, or similar property. Amend 2011 tax return free Acquire property for resale. Amend 2011 tax return free However, these rules do not apply to the following property. Amend 2011 tax return free Personal property you acquire for resale if your average annual gross receipts are $10 million or less for the 3 prior tax years. Amend 2011 tax return free Property you produce if you meet either of the following conditions. Amend 2011 tax return free Your indirect costs of producing the property are $200,000 or less. Amend 2011 tax return free You use the cash method of accounting and do not account for inventories. Amend 2011 tax return free Example 1. Amend 2011 tax return free You rent construction equipment to build a storage facility. Amend 2011 tax return free If you are subject to the uniform capitalization rules, you must capitalize as part of the cost of the building the rent you paid for the equipment. Amend 2011 tax return free You recover your cost by claiming a deduction for depreciation on the building. Amend 2011 tax return free Example 2. Amend 2011 tax return free You rent space in a facility to conduct your business of manufacturing tools. Amend 2011 tax return free If you are subject to the uniform capitalization rules, you must include the rent you paid to occupy the facility in the cost of the tools you produce. Amend 2011 tax return free More information. Amend 2011 tax return free   For more information on these rules, see Uniform Capitalization Rules in Publication 538 and the regulations under Internal Revenue Code section 263A.
