Federal Form 1040ez

Federal form 1040ez 7. Federal form 1040ez   Figuring Gross Profit Table of Contents Introduction Items To Check Testing Gross Profit AccuracyExample. Federal form 1040ez Additions to Gross Profit Introduction After you have figured the gross receipts from your business (chapter 5) and the cost of goods sold (chapter 6), you are ready to figure your gross profit. Federal form 1040ez You must determine gross profit before you can deduct any business expenses. Federal form 1040ez These expenses are discussed in chapter 8. Federal form 1040ez If you are filing Schedule C-EZ, your gross profit is your gross receipts plus certain other amounts, explained later under Additions to Gross Profit. Federal form 1040ez Businesses that sell products. Federal form 1040ez   If you are filing Schedule C, figure your gross profit by first figuring your net receipts. Federal form 1040ez Figure net receipts (line 3) on Schedule C by subtracting any returns and allowances (line 2) from gross receipts (line 1). Federal form 1040ez Returns and allowances include cash or credit refunds you make to customers, rebates, and other allowances off the actual sales price. Federal form 1040ez   Next, subtract the cost of goods sold (line 4) from net receipts (line 3). Federal form 1040ez The result is the gross profit from your business. Federal form 1040ez Businesses that sell services. Federal form 1040ez   You do not have to figure the cost of goods sold if the sale of merchandise is not an income-producing factor for your business. Federal form 1040ez Your gross profit is the same as your net receipts (gross receipts minus any refunds, rebates, or other allowances). Federal form 1040ez Most professions and businesses that sell services rather than products can figure gross profit directly from net receipts in this way. Federal form 1040ez Illustration. Federal form 1040ez   This illustration of the gross profit section of the income statement of a retail business shows how gross profit is figured. Federal form 1040ez Income Statement Year Ended December 31, 2013 Gross receipts $400,000 Minus: Returns and allowances 14,940 Net receipts $385,060 Minus: Cost of goods sold 288,140 Gross profit $96,920   The cost of goods sold for this business is figured as follows: Inventory at beginning of year $37,845 Plus: Purchases $285,900   Minus: Items withdrawn for personal use 2,650 283,250 Goods available for sale $321,095 Minus: Inventory at end of year 32,955 Cost of goods sold $288,140 Items To Check Consider the following items before figuring your gross profit. Federal form 1040ez Gross receipts. Federal form 1040ez   At the end of each business day, make sure your records balance with your actual cash and credit receipts for the day. Federal form 1040ez You may find it helpful to use cash registers to keep track of receipts. Federal form 1040ez You should also use a proper invoicing system and keep a separate bank account for your business. Federal form 1040ez Sales tax collected. Federal form 1040ez   Check to make sure your records show the correct sales tax collected. Federal form 1040ez   If you collect state and local sales taxes imposed on you as the seller of goods or services from the buyer, you must include the amount collected in gross receipts. Federal form 1040ez   If you are required to collect state and local taxes imposed on the buyer and turn them over to state or local governments, you generally do not include these amounts in income. Federal form 1040ez Inventory at beginning of year. Federal form 1040ez   Compare this figure with last year's ending inventory. Federal form 1040ez The two amounts should usually be the same. Federal form 1040ez Purchases. Federal form 1040ez   If you take any inventory items for your personal use (use them yourself, provide them to your family, or give them as personal gifts, etc. Federal form 1040ez ) be sure to remove them from the cost of goods sold. Federal form 1040ez For details on how to adjust cost of goods sold, see Merchandise withdrawn from sale in chapter 6. Federal form 1040ez Inventory at end of year. Federal form 1040ez   Check to make sure your procedures for taking inventory are adequate. Federal form 1040ez These procedures should ensure all items have been included in inventory and proper pricing techniques have been used. Federal form 1040ez   Use inventory forms and adding machine tapes as the only evidence for your inventory. Federal form 1040ez Inventory forms are available at office supply stores. Federal form 1040ez These forms have columns for recording the description, quantity, unit price, and value of each inventory item. Federal form 1040ez Each page has space to record who made the physical count, who priced the items, who made the extensions, and who proofread the calculations. Federal form 1040ez These forms will help satisfy you that the total inventory is accurate. Federal form 1040ez They will also provide you with a permanent record to support its validity. Federal form 1040ez   Inventories are discussed in chapter 2. Federal form 1040ez Testing Gross Profit Accuracy If you are in a retail or wholesale business, you can check the accuracy of your gross profit figure. Federal form 1040ez First, divide gross profit by net receipts. Federal form 1040ez The resulting percentage measures the average spread between the merchandise cost of goods sold and the selling price. Federal form 1040ez Next, compare this percentage to your markup policy. Federal form 1040ez Little or no difference between these two percentages shows that your gross profit figure is accurate. Federal form 1040ez A large difference between these percentages may show that you did not accurately figure sales, purchases, inventory, or other items of cost. Federal form 1040ez You should determine the reason for the difference. Federal form 1040ez Example. Federal form 1040ez   Joe Able operates a retail business. Federal form 1040ez On the average, he marks up his merchandise so that he will realize a gross profit of 331/3% on its sales. Federal form 1040ez The net receipts (gross receipts minus returns and allowances) shown on his income statement is $300,000. Federal form 1040ez His cost of goods sold is $200,000. Federal form 1040ez This results in a gross profit of $100,000 ($300,000 − $200,000). Federal form 1040ez To test the accuracy of this year's results, Joe divides gross profit ($100,000) by net receipts ($300,000). Federal form 1040ez The resulting 331/3% confirms his markup percentage of 331/3%. Federal form 1040ez Additions to Gross Profit If your business has income from a source other than its regular business operations, enter the income on line 6 of Schedule C and add it to gross profit. Federal form 1040ez The result is gross business income. Federal form 1040ez If you use Schedule C-EZ, include the income on line 1 of the schedule. Federal form 1040ez Some examples include income from an interest-bearing checking account, income from scrap sales, income from certain fuel tax credits and refunds, and amounts recovered from bad debts.

Federal form 1040ez   On a farm for farming purposes means fuel used in carrying on a trade or business of farming, on a farm in the United States, and for farming purposes. Federal form 1040ez Farm. Federal form 1040ez   A farm includes livestock, dairy, fish, poultry, fruit, fur-bearing animals, and truck farms; orchards; plantations; ranches; nurseries; ranges; and feed yards for fattening cattle. Federal form 1040ez It also includes structures such as greenhouses used primarily for the raising of agricultural or horticultural commodities. Federal form 1040ez A fish farm is an area where fish are grown or raised — not merely caught or harvested. Federal form 1040ez Farming purposes. Federal form 1040ez   As an owner, tenant, or operator, you use fuel on a farm for farming purposes if you use it in any of the following ways. Federal form 1040ez To cultivate the soil or to raise or harvest any agricultural or horticultural commodity. Federal form 1040ez To raise, shear, feed, care for, train, or manage livestock, bees, poultry, fur-bearing animals, or wildlife. Federal form 1040ez To operate, manage, conserve, improve, or maintain your farm and its tools and equipment. Federal form 1040ez To handle, dry, pack, grade, or store any raw agricultural or horticultural commodity. Federal form 1040ez For this use to qualify, you must have produced more than half the commodity so treated during the tax year. Federal form 1040ez Commodity means a single raw product. Federal form 1040ez For example, apples and peaches are two separate commodities. Federal form 1040ez To plant, cultivate, care for, or cut trees or to prepare (other than sawing logs into lumber, chipping, or other milling) trees for market, but only if the planting, etc. Federal form 1040ez , is incidental to your farming operations. Federal form 1040ez Your tree operations will be incidental only if they are minor in nature when compared to the total farming operations. Federal form 1040ez   If any other person, such as a neighbor or custom operator, performs a service for you on your farm for any of the purposes listed in (1) or (2), you are considered to be the ultimate purchaser that used the fuel on a farm for farming purposes. Federal form 1040ez However, see Custom application of fertilizer and pesticide, next. Federal form 1040ez   If doubt exists whether the owner, the tenant, or the operator of the farm bought the fuel, determine who bore the cost of the fuel. Federal form 1040ez For example, if the owner of a farm and the tenant equally share the cost of gasoline that is used on a farm for farming purposes, each can claim a credit for the tax on one-half the fuel used. Federal form 1040ez Custom application of fertilizer and pesticide. Federal form 1040ez   Fuel used on a farm for farming purposes includes fuel used in the application of fertilizer, pesticides, or other substances, including aerial applications. Federal form 1040ez Generally, the applicator is treated as having used the fuel on a farm for farming purposes. Federal form 1040ez For aviation gasoline, the aerial applicator makes the claim as the ultimate purchaser. Federal form 1040ez For kerosene used in aviation, the ultimate purchaser may make the claim or waive their right to make the claim to the registered ultimate vendor. Federal form 1040ez Fuel used between airfield and farm. Federal form 1040ez   Fuel used by an aerial applicator for the direct flight between the airfield and one or more farms is treated as a farming purpose. Federal form 1040ez Fuel not used for farming. Federal form 1040ez   Fuel is not used on a farm for farming purposes if it is used in any of the following ways. Federal form 1040ez Off the farm, such as on the highway or in noncommercial aviation, other than fuel used between the airfield and farm described above, even if the fuel is used in transporting livestock, feed, crops, or equipment. Federal form 1040ez For personal use, such as mowing the lawn. Federal form 1040ez In processing, packaging, freezing, or canning operations. Federal form 1040ez In processing crude gum into gum spirits of turpentine or gum resin or in processing maple sap into maple syrup or maple sugar. Federal form 1040ez Off-highway business use (No. Federal form 1040ez 2). Federal form 1040ez   Off-highway business use means fuel used in a trade or business or in an income-producing activity other than as a fuel in a highway vehicle registered or required to be registered for use on public highways. Federal form 1040ez The terms “highway vehicle,” “public highway,” and “registered” are defined below. Federal form 1040ez Do not consider any use in a boat as an off-highway business use. Federal form 1040ez   Off-highway business use includes fuels used in any of the following ways. Federal form 1040ez In stationary machines such as generators, compressors, power saws, and similar equipment. Federal form 1040ez For cleaning purposes. Federal form 1040ez In forklift trucks, bulldozers, and earthmovers. Federal form 1040ez   Generally, this use does not include nonbusiness use of fuel, such as use by minibikes, snowmobiles, power lawn mowers, chain saws, and other yard equipment. Federal form 1040ez Example. Federal form 1040ez Caroline owns a landscaping business. Federal form 1040ez She uses power lawn mowers and chain saws in her business. Federal form 1040ez The gasoline used in the power lawn mowers and chain saws qualifies as fuel used in an off-highway business use. Federal form 1040ez The gasoline used in her personal lawn mower at home does not qualify. Federal form 1040ez Highway vehicle. Federal form 1040ez   A highway vehicle is any self-propelled vehicle designed to carry a load over public highways, whether or not it is also designed to perform other functions. Federal form 1040ez Examples of vehicles designed to carry a load over public highways are passenger automobiles, motorcycles, buses, and highway-type trucks and truck tractors. Federal form 1040ez A vehicle is a highway vehicle even though the vehicle's design allows it to perform a highway transportation function for only one of the following. Federal form 1040ez A particular type of load, such as passengers, furnishings, and personal effects (as in a house, office, or utility trailer). Federal form 1040ez A special kind of cargo, goods, supplies, or materials. Federal form 1040ez Some off-highway task unrelated to highway transportation, except as discussed next. Federal form 1040ez Vehicles not considered highway vehicles. Federal form 1040ez   Generally, the following kinds of vehicles are not considered highway vehicles for purposes of the credit or refund of fuel taxes. Federal form 1040ez Specially designed mobile machinery for nontransportation functions. Federal form 1040ez A self-propelled vehicle is not a highway vehicle if all the following apply. Federal form 1040ez The chassis has permanently mounted to it machinery or equipment used to perform certain operations (construction, manufacturing, drilling, mining, timbering, processing, farming, or similar operations) if the operation of the machinery or equipment is unrelated to transportation on or off the public highways. Federal form 1040ez The chassis has been specially designed to serve only as a mobile carriage and mount (and power source, if applicable) for the machinery or equipment, whether or not the machinery or equipment is in operation. Federal form 1040ez The chassis could not, because of its special design and without substantial structural modification, be used as part of a vehicle designed to carry any other load. Federal form 1040ez The vehicle must have traveled less than 7,500 miles on public highways during the taxable year. Federal form 1040ez Vehicles specially designed for off-highway transportation. Federal form 1040ez A vehicle is not treated as a highway vehicle if the vehicle is specially designed for the primary function of transporting a particular type of load other than over the public highway and because of this special design, the vehicle's capability to transport a load over a public highway is substantially limited or impaired. Federal form 1040ez To make this determination, you can take into account the vehicle's size, whether the vehicle is subject to licensing, safety, or other requirements, and whether the vehicle can transport a load at a sustained speed of at least 25 miles per hour. Federal form 1040ez It does not matter that the vehicle can carry heavier loads off highway than it is allowed to carry over the highway. Federal form 1040ez Nontransportation trailers and semitrailers. Federal form 1040ez A trailer or semi-trailer is not treated as a highway vehicle if it is specially designed to function only as an enclosed stationary shelter for carrying on a nontransportation function at an off-highway site. Federal form 1040ez For example, a trailer that is capable only of functioning as an office for an off-highway construction operation is not a highway vehicle. Federal form 1040ez Public highway. Federal form 1040ez   A public highway includes any road in the United States that is not a private roadway. Federal form 1040ez This includes federal, state, county, and city roads and streets. Federal form 1040ez Registered. Federal form 1040ez   A vehicle is considered registered when it is registered or required to be registered for highway use under the law of any state, the District of Columbia, or any foreign country in which it is operated or situated. Federal form 1040ez Any highway vehicle operated under a dealer's tag, license, or permit is considered registered. Federal form 1040ez A highway vehicle is not considered registered solely because a special permit allows the vehicle to be operated at particular times and under specified conditions. Federal form 1040ez Dual use of propulsion motor. Federal form 1040ez   Off-highway business use does not include any fuel used in the propulsion motor of a registered highway vehicle even though that motor also operates special equipment by means of a power take-off or power transfer. Federal form 1040ez It does not matter if the special equipment is mounted on the vehicle. Federal form 1040ez Example. Federal form 1040ez The motor of a registered concrete-mixer truck operates both the engine and the mixing unit by means of a power take-off. Federal form 1040ez The fuel used in the motor to run the mixer is not off-highway business use. Federal form 1040ez Use in separate motor. Federal form 1040ez   Off-highway business use includes fuel used in a separate motor to operate special equipment, such as a refrigeration unit, pump, generator, or mixing unit. Federal form 1040ez If you draw fuel from the same tank that supplies fuel to the propulsion motor, you must figure the quantity used in the separate motor operating the special equipment. Federal form 1040ez You may make a reasonable estimate based on your operating experience and supported by your records. Federal form 1040ez   You can use devices that measure the miles the vehicle has traveled (such as hubometers) to figure the gallons of fuel used to propel the vehicle. Federal form 1040ez Add to this amount the fuel consumed while idling or warming up the motor before propelling the vehicle. Federal form 1040ez The difference between your total fuel used and the fuel used to propel the vehicle is the fuel used in the separate motor. Federal form 1040ez Example. Federal form 1040ez Hazel owns a refrigerated truck. Federal form 1040ez It has a separate motor for the refrigeration unit. Federal form 1040ez The same tank supplies both motors. Federal form 1040ez Using the truck's hubometer, Hazel figures that 90% of the fuel was used to propel the truck. Federal form 1040ez Therefore, 10% of the fuel is used in an off-highway business use. Federal form 1040ez Fuel lost or destroyed. Federal form 1040ez   You cannot treat fuel lost or destroyed through spillage, fire, or other casualty as fuel used in an off-highway business use. Federal form 1040ez Export (No. Federal form 1040ez 3). Federal form 1040ez   Export means fuel transported from the United States with the intention that the fuel remain in a foreign country or possession of the United States. Federal form 1040ez Fuel is not exported if it is in the fuel supply tank of a vehicle or aircraft. Federal form 1040ez In a boat engaged in commercial fishing (No. Federal form 1040ez 4). Federal form 1040ez   In a boat engaged in commercial fishing means fuel used in taking, catching, processing, or transporting fish, shellfish, or other aquatic life for commercial purposes, such as selling or processing the catch, on a specific trip basis.

Federal form 1040ez Nonscheduled operations if the seating capacity of the bus is at least 20 adults, not including the driver. Federal form 1040ez Vans and similar vehicles used for van-pooling or taxi service do not qualify. Federal form 1040ez Available to the general public. Federal form 1040ez   This means you offer service to more than a limited number of persons or organizations. Federal form 1040ez If a bus operator normally provides charter operations through travel agencies but has buses available for chartering by the general public, this service is available to the general public. Federal form 1040ez A bus does not qualify when its operator uses it to provide exclusive services to only one person, group, or organization. Federal form 1040ez Also, intercity bus transportation does not include transporting students and employees of schools or intercity transportation in a qualified local bus. Federal form 1040ez In a qualified local bus (No. Federal form 1040ez 6). Federal form 1040ez   In a qualified local bus means fuel used in a bus meeting all the following requirements.

Federal form 1040ez It includes transportation along routes that cross state, city, or county boundaries if the routes remain within the metropolitan area. Federal form 1040ez Under contract. Federal form 1040ez   A bus is under contract with a state or local government only if the contract imposes a bona fide obligation on the bus operator to furnish the transportation. Federal form 1040ez More than a nominal subsidy. Federal form 1040ez   A subsidy is more than nominal if it is reasonably expected to exceed an amount equal to 3 cents multiplied by the number of gallons of fuel used in buses on subsidized routes. Federal form 1040ez A company that operates its buses along subsidized and unsubsidized intracity routes may consider its buses qualified local buses only when the buses are used on the subsidized intracity routes. Federal form 1040ez In a school bus (No. Federal form 1040ez 7). Federal form 1040ez   In a school bus means fuel used in a bus engaged in the transportation of students or employees of schools.
