Filing taxes online free Applicable percentage. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free Any gain remaining after applying the depreciation recapture rules is a section 1231 gain, which may be taxed as a capital gain. Filing taxes online free Gains and losses from property used in farming are reported on Form 4797, Sales of Business Property. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free Section 1231 Gains and Losses Section 1231 gains and losses are the taxable gains and losses from section 1231 transactions (explained below). Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free Table 9-1. Filing taxes online free Where to First Report Certain Items on Form 4797 Type of property Held 1 year  or less Held more than  1 year 1 Depreciable trade or business property:       a Sold or exchanged at a gain Part II Part III (1245, 1250)   b Sold or exchanged at a loss Part II Part I 2 Farmland held less than 10 years for which soil, water, or land clearing expenses were deducted:       a Sold at a gain Part II Part III (1252)   b Sold at a loss Part II Part I 3 All other farmland Part II Part I 4 Disposition of cost-sharing payment property described in section 126 Part II Part III (1255) 5 Cattle and horses used in a trade or business for draft, breeding, dairy, or sporting purposes: Held less  than 24 mos.

Filing taxes online free Held 12 mos. Filing taxes online free   or more   a Sold at a gain Part II Part III (1245)   b Sold at a loss Part II Part I   c Raised livestock sold at a gain Part II Part I If you have a gain from a section 1231 transaction, first determine whether any of the gain is ordinary income under the depreciation recapture rules (explained later). Filing taxes online free Do not take that gain into account as section 1231 gain. Filing taxes online free Section 1231 transactions. Filing taxes online free   Gain or loss on the following transactions is subject to section 1231 treatment. Filing taxes online free Sale or exchange of cattle and horses. Filing taxes online free The cattle and horses must be held for draft, breeding, dairy, or sporting purposes and held for 24 months or longer. Filing taxes online free Sale or exchange of other livestock. Filing taxes online free This livestock must be held for draft, breeding, dairy, or sporting purposes and held for 12 months or longer. Filing taxes online free Other livestock includes hogs, mules, sheep, goats, donkeys, and other fur-bearing animals. Filing taxes online free Other livestock does not include poultry. Filing taxes online free Sale or exchange of depreciable personal property. Filing taxes online free This property must be used in your business and held longer than 1 year. Filing taxes online free Generally, property held for the production of rents or royalties is considered to be used in a trade or business. Filing taxes online free Examples of depreciable personal property include farm machinery and trucks. Filing taxes online free It also includes amortizable section 197 intangibles. Filing taxes online free Sale or exchange of real estate. Filing taxes online free This property must be used in your business and held longer than 1 year. Filing taxes online free Examples are your farm or ranch (including barns and sheds). Filing taxes online free Sale or exchange of unharvested crops. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free 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). Filing taxes online free Growing crops sold with a leasehold on the land, even if sold to the same person in a single transaction, are not included. Filing taxes online free Distributive share of partnership gains and losses. Filing taxes online free 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). Filing taxes online free Cutting or disposal of timber. Filing taxes online free 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 . Filing taxes online free Condemnation. Filing taxes online free The condemned property (defined in chapter 11) must have been held longer than 1 year. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free It cannot be property held for personal use. Filing taxes online free Casualty or theft. Filing taxes online free 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). Filing taxes online free You must have held the property longer than 1 year. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free Section 1231 does not apply to personal casualty gains and losses. Filing taxes online free See chapter 11 for information on how to treat those gains and losses. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free See Table 9-1. Filing taxes online free Property for sale to customers. Filing taxes online free   A sale, exchange, or involuntary conversion of property held mainly for sale to customers is not a section 1231 transaction. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free Treatment as ordinary or capital. Filing taxes online free   To determine the treatment of section 1231 gains and losses, combine all of your section 1231 gains and losses for the year. Filing taxes online free If you have a net section 1231 loss, it is an ordinary loss. Filing taxes online free If you have a net section 1231 gain, it is ordinary income up to your nonrecaptured section 1231 losses from previous years, explained next. Filing taxes online free The rest, if any, is long-term capital gain. Filing taxes online free Nonrecaptured section 1231 losses. Filing taxes online free   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. Filing taxes online free These losses are applied against your net section 1231 gain beginning with the earliest loss in the 5-year period. Filing taxes online free Example. Filing taxes online free In 2013, Ben has a $2,000 net section 1231 gain. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free From 2008 through 2012 he had the following section 1231 gains and losses. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free For more information, see chapter 3 of Publication 544. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free Any recognized gain that is more than the part that is ordinary income is a section 1231 gain. Filing taxes online free See Treatment as ordinary or capital under Section 1231 Gains and Losses , earlier. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free Personal property (either tangible or intangible). Filing taxes online free Other tangible property (except buildings and their structural components) used as any of the following. Filing taxes online free See Buildings and structural components below. Filing taxes online free An integral part of manufacturing, production, or extraction, or of furnishing certain services. Filing taxes online free A research facility in any of the activities in (a). Filing taxes online free A facility in any of the activities in (a) above, for the bulk storage of fungible commodities (discussed later). Filing taxes online free That part of real property (not included in (2)) with an adjusted basis reduced by (but not limited to) the following. Filing taxes online free Amortization of certified pollution control facilities. Filing taxes online free The section 179 expense deduction. Filing taxes online free Deduction for clean-fuel vehicles and certain refueling property. Filing taxes online free Expenditures to remove architectural and transportation barriers to the handicapped and elderly. Filing taxes online free Certain reforestation expenditures (as described under Reforestation Costs in chapter 7. Filing taxes online free Single purpose agricultural (livestock) or horticultural structures. Filing taxes online free Storage facilities (except buildings and their structural components) used in distributing petroleum or any primary product of petroleum. Filing taxes online free Buildings and structural components. Filing taxes online free   Section 1245 property does not include buildings and structural components. Filing taxes online free The term building includes a house, barn, warehouse, or garage. Filing taxes online free The term structural component includes walls, floors, windows, doors, central air conditioning systems, light fixtures, etc. Filing taxes online free   Do not treat a structure that is essentially machinery or equipment as a building or structural component. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free   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. Filing taxes online free Structures such as oil and gas storage tanks, grain storage bins, and silos are not treated as buildings, but as section 1245 property. Filing taxes online free Facility for bulk storage of fungible commodities. Filing taxes online free   This is a facility used mainly for the bulk storage of fungible commodities. Filing taxes online free Bulk storage means storage of a commodity in a large mass before it is used. Filing taxes online free For example, if a facility is used to store oranges that have been sorted and boxed, it is not used for bulk storage. Filing taxes online free To be fungible, a commodity must be such that one part may be used in place of another. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free The depreciation (which includes any section 179 deduction claimed) and amortization allowed or allowable on the property. Filing taxes online free The gain realized on the disposition (the amount realized from the disposition minus the adjusted basis of the property). Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free For details, see chapter 3 of Publication 544. Filing taxes online free Use Part III of Form 4797 to figure the ordinary income part of the gain. Filing taxes online free Depreciation claimed on other property or claimed by other taxpayers. Filing taxes online free   Depreciation and amortization include the amounts you claimed on the section 1245 property as well as the following depreciation and amortization amounts. Filing taxes online free Amounts you claimed on property you exchanged for, or converted to, your section 1245 property in a like-kind exchange or involuntary conversion. Filing taxes online free For details on exchanges of property that are not taxable, see Like-Kind Exchanges in chapter 8. Filing taxes online free 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). Filing taxes online free Example. Filing taxes online free Jeff Free paid $120,000 for a tractor in 2012. Filing taxes online free On February 23, 2013, he traded it for a chopper and paid an additional $30,000. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free Jeff can also depreciate the additional $30,000 for the chopper. Filing taxes online free Depreciation and amortization. Filing taxes online free   Depreciation and amortization deductions that must be recaptured as ordinary income include (but are not limited to) the following items. Filing taxes online free See Depreciation Recapture in chapter 3 of Publication 544 for more details. Filing taxes online free Ordinary depreciation deductions. Filing taxes online free Section 179 deduction (see chapter 7). Filing taxes online free Any special depreciation allowance. Filing taxes online free Amortization deductions for all the following costs. Filing taxes online free Acquiring a lease. Filing taxes online free Lessee improvements. Filing taxes online free Pollution control facilities. Filing taxes online free Reforestation expenses. Filing taxes online free Section 197 intangibles. Filing taxes online free Qualified disaster expenses. Filing taxes online free Franchises, trademarks, and trade names acquired before August 11, 1993. Filing taxes online free Example. Filing taxes online free You file your returns on a calendar year basis. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free You used the half-year convention and your MACRS deductions for the truck were $1,500 in 2011 and $2,550 in 2012. Filing taxes online free You did not claim the section 179 expense deduction for the truck. Filing taxes online free You sold it in May 2013 for $7,000. Filing taxes online free The MACRS deduction in 2013, the year of sale, is $893 (½ of $1,785). Filing taxes online free Figure the gain treated as ordinary income as follows. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free   You generally use the greater of the depreciation allowed or allowable when figuring the part of gain to report as ordinary income. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free This treatment applies only when figuring what part of the gain is treated as ordinary income under the rules for section 1245 depreciation recapture. Filing taxes online free Disposition of plants and animals. Filing taxes online free   If you elect not to use the uniform capitalization rules (see chapter 6), you must treat any plant you produce as section 1245 property. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free For section 1231 transactions, show these expenses as depreciation on Form 4797, Part III, line 22. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free You can use the farm-price method or the unit-livestock-price method discussed in  chapter 2 to figure these expenses. Filing taxes online free Example. Filing taxes online free Janet Maple sold her apple orchard in 2013 for $80,000. Filing taxes online free Her adjusted basis at the time of sale was $60,000. Filing taxes online free She bought the orchard in 2006, but the trees did not produce a crop until 2009. Filing taxes online free Her pre-productive expenses were $6,000. Filing taxes online free She elected not to use the uniform capitalization rules. Filing taxes online free Janet must treat $6,000 of the gain as ordinary income. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free It includes buildings and structural components that are not section 1245 property (discussed earlier). Filing taxes online free It includes a leasehold of land or section 1250 property subject to an allowance for depreciation. Filing taxes online free A fee simple interest in land is not section 1250 property because, like land, it is not depreciable. Filing taxes online free Gain on the disposition of section 1250 property is treated as ordinary income to the extent of additional depreciation allowed or allowable. Filing taxes online free To determine the additional depreciation on section 1250 property, see Depreciation Recapture in chapter 3 of Publication 544. Filing taxes online free You will not have additional depreciation if any of the following apply to the property disposed of. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free These properties are depreciated using the straight line method. Filing taxes online free 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. Filing taxes online free This applies even if no payments are received in that year. Filing taxes online free If the gain is more than the depreciation recapture income, report the rest of the gain using the rules of the installment method. Filing taxes online free For this purpose, include the recapture income in your installment sale basis to determine your gross profit on the installment sale. Filing taxes online free If you dispose of more than one asset in a single transaction, you must separately figure the gain on each asset so that it may be properly reported. Filing taxes online free To do this, allocate the selling price and the payments you receive in the year of sale to each asset. Filing taxes online free Report any depreciation recapture income in the year of sale before using the installment method for any remaining gain. Filing taxes online free For more information on installment sales, see chapter 10. Filing taxes online free Other Dispositions Chapter 3 of Publication 544 discusses the tax treatment of the following transfers of depreciable property. Filing taxes online free By gift. Filing taxes online free At death. Filing taxes online free In like-kind exchanges. Filing taxes online free In involuntary conversions. Filing taxes online free Publication 544 also explains how to handle a single transaction involving multiple properties. Filing taxes online free Other Gains This section discusses gain on the disposition of farmland for which you were allowed either of the following.
