Topic 602 - Child and Dependent Care Credit

You may be able to claim the child and dependent care credit if you paid work-related expenses for the care of a qualifying individual. The credit is generally a percentage of the amount of work-related expenses you paid to a care provider for the care of a qualifying individual. The percentage depends on your adjusted gross income. Work-related expenses qualifying for the credit are those paid for the care of a qualifying individual to enable you to work or actively look for work.

Expenses are paid for the care of a qualifying individual if the primary function is to assure the individual's well-being and protection. In general, amounts paid for services outside your household qualify for the credit if the care is provided for (i) a qualifying individual who is your qualifying child under age 13 or (ii) a qualifying individual who regularly spends at least 8 hours each day in your household.

The total expenses that may be used to calculate the credit are capped at $3,000 (for one qualifying individual) or at $6,000 (for two or more qualifying individuals). The dollar limits may differ depending on the tax year in question. The expenses qualifying for the computation of the credit must be reduced by the amount of any dependent care benefits provided by your employer that you exclude from gross income. In general, you can exclude up to $5,000 for dependent care benefits received from your employer. Also, generally, the expenses claimed may not exceed the lesser of your earned income or your spouse’s earned income. A special rule applies if your spouse is a full-time student or incapable of self-care. For additional information, refer to Publication 503, Child and Dependent Care Expenses.

For purposes of the child and dependent care credit, a qualifying individual is:

  1. Your dependent qualifying child who is under age 13 when the care is provided,
  2. Your spouse who is physically or mentally incapable of self-care and who has the same principal place of abode as you for more than half of the year, or
  3. Your dependent who is physically or mentally incapable of self-care, and who has the same principal place of abode as you for more than half of the year. For this purpose, whether an individual is your dependent is determined without regard to the individual's gross income, whether the individual files a joint return, or whether you are a dependent of another taxpayer.

An individual is physically or mentally incapable of self-care if, as a result of a physical or mental defect, the individual is incapable of caring for his or her hygiene or nutritional needs, or requires the full-time attention of another person for the individual's own safety or the safety of others.

For more information on who is a dependent or a qualifying child, refer to Publication 501, Exemptions, Standard Deduction, and Filing Information.

A noncustodial parent may not treat a child as a qualifying individual for purposes of the credit, even if the noncustodial parent may claim an exemption for the child. For more information on divorced or separated parents or parents who live apart at all times during the last six months of the year, refer to the topic Child of Divorced or Separated Parents or Parents Living Apart in Publication 503, Child and Dependent Care Expenses.

If a person is a qualifying individual for only a part of the tax year, only those expenses paid during that part of the year are included in calculating the credit.

In addition to paying for the care of a qualifying individual, you must meet all of the following conditions to claim the credit:

  1. Your payment must be made to a care provider who is not your spouse, the parent of your child who is your qualifying individual, your child under age 19, or a dependent of you or your spouse.
  2. You must file a joint return if you are married.
  3. You must provide the taxpayer identification number (usually the social security number) of each qualifying individual on the return on which you claim the credit.
  4. You must report the name, address, and taxpayer identification number (either the social security number, or the employer identification number) of the care provider on your return. If the care provider is a tax-exempt organization, you need only report the name and address on your return. You can use Form W-10 (PDF), Dependent Care Provider's Identification and Certification, to request this information from the care provider. If you do not provide information regarding the care provider, you may still be eligible for the credit if you can show that you exercised due diligence in attempting to provide the required information.

If you qualify for the credit, complete Form 2441 (PDF) and Form 1040 (PDF) or Form 1040A (PDF). If you received dependent care benefits from your employer (this amount should be shown on your Form W-2 (PDF), you must complete Part III of Form 2441. You cannot claim the child and dependent care credit if you use Form 1040EZ (PDF).

If you pay a provider to care for your dependent or spouse in your home, you may be a household employer. If you are a household employer, you may have to withhold and pay social security and Medicare taxes and pay federal unemployment tax. For more information, refer to Publication 926, Household Employer's Tax Guide, or Topic 756.

H and r block efile Leveraged leases of limited-use property. H and r block efile Taxes on Leased Property Cost of Getting a Lease Improvements by Lessee Capitalizing Rent Expenses Introduction This chapter discusses the tax treatment of rent or lease payments you make for property you use in your business but do not own. H and r block efile It also discusses how to treat other kinds of payments you make that are related to your use of this property. H and r block efile These include payments you make for taxes on the property. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile In general, you can deduct rent as an expense only if the rent is for property you use in your trade or business. H and r block efile If you have or will receive equity in or title to the property, the rent is not deductible. H and r block efile Unreasonable rent. H and r block efile   You cannot take a rental deduction for unreasonable rent. H and r block efile Ordinarily, the issue of reasonableness arises only if you and the lessor are related. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile Rent is not unreasonable just because it is figured as a percentage of gross sales. H and r block efile For examples of related persons, see Related persons in chapter 2, Publication 544. H and r block efile Rent on your home. H and r block efile   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. H and r block efile You must meet the requirements for business use of your home. H and r block efile For more information, see Business use of your home in chapter 1. H and r block efile Rent paid in advance. H and r block efile   Generally, rent paid in your trade or business is deductible in the year paid or accrued. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile You can deduct the rest of your payment only over the period to which it applies. H and r block efile Example 1. H and r block efile You are a calendar year taxpayer and you leased a building for 5 years beginning July 1. H and r block efile Your rent is $12,000 per year. H and r block efile You paid the first year's rent ($12,000) on June 30. H and r block efile You can deduct only $6,000 (6/12 × $12,000) for the rent that applies to the first year. H and r block efile Example 2. H and r block efile You are a calendar year taxpayer. H and r block efile Last January you leased property for 3 years for $6,000 a year. H and r block efile You paid the full $18,000 (3 × $6,000) during the first year of the lease. H and r block efile Each year you can deduct only $6,000, the part of the lease that applies to that year. H and r block efile Canceling a lease. H and r block efile   You generally can deduct as rent an amount you pay to cancel a business lease. H and r block efile Lease or purchase. H and r block efile   There may be instances in which you must determine whether your payments are for rent or for the purchase of the property. H and r block efile You must first determine whether your agreement is a lease or a conditional sales contract. H and r block efile Payments made under a conditional sales contract are not deductible as rent expense. H and r block efile Conditional sales contract. H and r block efile   Whether an agreement is a conditional sales contract depends on the intent of the parties. H and r block efile Determine intent based on the provisions of the agreement and the facts and circumstances that exist when you make the agreement. H and r block efile No single test, or special combination of tests, always applies. H and r block efile However, in general, an agreement may be considered a conditional sales contract rather than a lease if any of the following is true. H and r block efile The agreement applies part of each payment toward an equity interest you will receive. H and r block efile You get title to the property after you make a stated amount of required payments. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile You pay much more than the current fair rental value of the property. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile Determine this value when you make the agreement. H and r block efile You have an option to buy the property at a nominal price compared to the total amount you have to pay under the agreement. H and r block efile The agreement designates part of the payments as interest, or that part is easy to recognize as interest. H and r block efile Leveraged leases. H and r block efile   Leveraged lease transactions may not be considered leases. H and r block efile Leveraged leases generally involve three parties: a lessor, a lessee, and a lender to the lessor. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile   If you plan to take part in what appears to be a leveraged lease, you may want to get an advance ruling. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile Internal Revenue Bulletin 2001-19 is available at www. H and r block efile irs. H and r block efile gov/pub/irs-irbs/irb01-19. H and r block efile pdf. H and r block efile   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. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile The lessee may not invest in the property, except as provided by Revenue Procedure 2001-28. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile The lessor must show that it expects to receive a profit apart from the tax deductions, allowances, credits, and other tax attributes. H and r block efile   The IRS may charge you a user fee for issuing a tax ruling. H and r block efile For more information, see Revenue Procedure 2014-1 available at  www. H and r block efile irs. H and r block efile gov/irb/2014-1_IRB/ar05. H and r block efile html. H and r block efile Leveraged leases of limited-use property. H and r block efile   The IRS will not issue advance rulings on leveraged leases of so-called limited-use property. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile See Revenue Procedure 2001-28 for examples of limited-use property and property that is not limited-use property. H and r block efile Leases over $250,000. H and r block efile   Special rules are provided for certain leases of tangible property. H and r block efile The rules apply if the lease calls for total payments of more than $250,000 and any of the following apply. H and r block efile Rents increase during the lease. H and r block efile Rents decrease during the lease. H and r block efile 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). H and r block efile 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). H and r block efile 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). H and r block efile   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. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile For details, see section 467 of the Internal Revenue Code. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile When you can deduct these taxes as additional rent depends on your accounting method. H and r block efile Cash method. H and r block efile   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. H and r block efile Accrual method. H and r block efile   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. H and r block efile That you have a liability for taxes on the leased property. H and r block efile How much the liability is. H and r block efile That economic performance occurred. H and r block efile   The liability and amount of taxes are determined by state or local law and the lease agreement. H and r block efile Economic performance occurs as you use the property. H and r block efile Example 1. H and r block efile Oak Corporation is a calendar year taxpayer that uses an accrual method of accounting. H and r block efile Oak leases land for use in its business. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile However, they do not have to pay these taxes until July 1 of the next year (18 months later) when tax bills are issued. H and r block efile Under the terms of the lease, Oak becomes liable for the real estate taxes in the later year when the tax bills are issued. H and r block efile If the lease ends before the tax bill for a year is issued, Oak is not liable for the taxes for that year. H and r block efile Oak cannot deduct the real estate taxes as rent until the tax bill is issued. H and r block efile This is when Oak's liability under the lease becomes fixed. H and r block efile Example 2. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile As a result, Oak will deduct the real estate taxes as rent on its tax return for the earlier year. H and r block efile This is the year in which Oak's liability under the lease becomes fixed. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile Option to renew. H and r block efile   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. H and r block efile 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). H and r block efile Allocate the lease cost to the original term and any option term based on the facts and circumstances. H and r block efile In some cases, it may be appropriate to make the allocation using a present value computation. H and r block efile For more information, see Regulations section 1. H and r block efile 178-1(b)(5). H and r block efile Example 1. H and r block efile You paid $10,000 to get a lease with 20 years remaining on it and two options to renew for 5 years each. H and r block efile Of this cost, you paid $7,000 for the original lease and $3,000 for the renewal options. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile That is the remaining life of your present lease plus the periods for renewal. H and r block efile Example 2. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile You can amortize the entire $10,000 over the 20-year remaining life of the original lease. H and r block efile The $8,000 cost of getting the original lease was not less than 75% of the total cost of the lease (or $7,500). H and r block efile Cost of a modification agreement. H and r block efile   You may have to pay an additional “rent” amount over part of the lease period to change certain provisions in your lease. H and r block efile You must capitalize these payments and amortize them over the remaining period of the lease. H and r block efile You cannot deduct the payments as additional rent, even if they are described as rent in the agreement. H and r block efile Example. H and r block efile You are a calendar year taxpayer and sign a 20-year lease to rent part of a building starting on January 1. H and r block efile However, before you occupy it, you decide that you really need less space. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile In exchange, you agree to pay an additional rent amount of $3,000, payable in 60 monthly installments of $50 each. H and r block efile   You must capitalize the $3,000 and amortize it over the 20-year term of the lease. H and r block efile Your amortization deduction each year will be $150 ($3,000 ÷ 20). H and r block efile You cannot deduct the $600 (12 × $50) that you will pay during each of the first 5 years as rent. H and r block efile Commissions, bonuses, and fees. H and r block efile   Commissions, bonuses, fees, and other amounts you pay to get a lease on property you use in your business are capital costs. H and r block efile You must amortize these costs over the term of the lease. H and r block efile Loss on merchandise and fixtures. H and r block efile   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. H and r block efile You must capitalize the loss and amortize it over the remaining term of the lease. H and r block efile 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). H and r block efile Depreciate the property over its appropriate recovery period. H and r block efile You cannot amortize the cost over the remaining term of the lease. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile For more information, see the discussion of MACRS in Publication 946, How To Depreciate Property. H and r block efile Assignment of a lease. H and r block efile   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. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile The rest is for your investment in the permanent improvements. H and r block efile   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. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile Include these costs in the basis of property you produce or acquire for resale, rather than claiming them as a current deduction. H and r block efile You recover the costs through depreciation, amortization, or cost of goods sold when you use, sell, or otherwise dispose of the property. H and r block efile Indirect costs include amounts incurred for renting or leasing equipment, facilities, or land. H and r block efile Uniform capitalization rules. H and r block efile   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. H and r block efile Produce real property or tangible personal property. H and r block efile For this purpose, tangible personal property includes a film, sound recording, video tape, book, or similar property. H and r block efile Acquire property for resale. H and r block efile However, these rules do not apply to the following property. H and r block efile Personal property you acquire for resale if your average annual gross receipts are $10 million or less for the 3 prior tax years. H and r block efile Property you produce if you meet either of the following conditions. H and r block efile Your indirect costs of producing the property are $200,000 or less. H and r block efile You use the cash method of accounting and do not account for inventories. H and r block efile Example 1. H and r block efile You rent construction equipment to build a storage facility. H and r block efile 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. H and r block efile You recover your cost by claiming a deduction for depreciation on the building. H and r block efile Example 2. H and r block efile You rent space in a facility to conduct your business of manufacturing tools. H and r block efile 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.
