How to file tax extention 5. How to file tax extention   Recordkeeping Table of Contents How To Prove ExpensesWhat Are Adequate Records? What If I Have Incomplete Records? Separating and Combining Expenses How Long To Keep Records and Receipts Examples of Records If you deduct travel, entertainment, gift, or transportation expenses, you must be able to prove (substantiate) certain elements of expense. How to file tax extention This chapter discusses the records you need to keep to prove these expenses. How to file tax extention If you keep timely and accurate records, you will have support to show the IRS if your tax return is ever examined. How to file tax extention You will also have proof of expenses that your employer may require if you are reimbursed under an accountable plan. How to file tax extention These plans are discussed in chapter 6 under Reimbursements . How to file tax extention How To Prove Expenses Table 5-1 is a summary of records you need to prove each expense discussed in this publication. How to file tax extention You must be able to prove the elements listed across the top portion of the chart. How to file tax extention You prove them by having the information and receipts (where needed) for the expenses listed in the first column. How to file tax extention You cannot deduct amounts that you approximate or estimate. How to file tax extention You should keep adequate records to prove your expenses or have sufficient evidence that will support your own statement. How to file tax extention You must generally prepare a written record for it to be considered adequate. How to file tax extention This is because written evidence is more reliable than oral evidence alone. How to file tax extention However, if you prepare a record on a computer, it is considered an adequate record. How to file tax extention What Are Adequate Records? You should keep the proof you need in an account book, diary, log, statement of expense, trip sheets, or similar record. How to file tax extention You should also keep documentary evidence that, together with your record, will support each element of an expense. How to file tax extention Documentary evidence. How to file tax extention   You generally must have documentary evidence, such as receipts, canceled checks, or bills, to support your expenses. How to file tax extention Exception. How to file tax extention   Documentary evidence is not needed if any of the following conditions apply. How to file tax extention You have meals or lodging expenses while traveling away from home for which you account to your employer under an accountable plan, and you use a per diem allowance method that includes meals and/or lodging. How to file tax extention ( Accountable plans and per diem allowances are discussed in chapter 6. How to file tax extention ) Your expense, other than lodging, is less than $75. How to file tax extention You have a transportation expense for which a receipt is not readily available. How to file tax extention Adequate evidence. How to file tax extention   Documentary evidence ordinarily will be considered adequate if it shows the amount, date, place, and essential character of the expense. How to file tax extention   For example, a hotel receipt is enough to support expenses for business travel if it has all of the following information. How to file tax extention The name and location of the hotel. How to file tax extention The dates you stayed there. How to file tax extention Separate amounts for charges such as lodging, meals, and telephone calls. How to file tax extention   A restaurant receipt is enough to prove an expense for a business meal if it has all of the following information. How to file tax extention The name and location of the restaurant. How to file tax extention The number of people served. How to file tax extention The date and amount of the expense. How to file tax extention If a charge is made for items other than food and beverages, the receipt must show that this is the case. How to file tax extention Canceled check. How to file tax extention   A canceled check, together with a bill from the payee, ordinarily establishes the cost. How to file tax extention However, a canceled check by itself does not prove a business expense without other evidence to show that it was for a business purpose. How to file tax extention Duplicate information. How to file tax extention   You do not have to record information in your account book or other record that duplicates information shown on a receipt as long as your records and receipts complement each other in an orderly manner. How to file tax extention   You do not have to record amounts your employer pays directly for any ticket or other travel item. How to file tax extention However, if you charge these items to your employer, through a credit card or otherwise, you must keep a record of the amounts you spend. How to file tax extention Timely-kept records. How to file tax extention   You should record the elements of an expense or of a business use at or near the time of the expense or use and support it with sufficient documentary evidence. How to file tax extention A timely-kept record has more value than a statement prepared later when generally there is a lack of accurate recall. How to file tax extention   You do not need to write down the elements of every expense on the day of the expense. How to file tax extention If you maintain a log on a weekly basis that accounts for use during the week, the log is considered a timely-kept record. How to file tax extention   If you give your employer, client, or customer an expense account statement, it can also be considered a timely-kept record. How to file tax extention This is true if you copy it from your account book, diary, log, statement of expense, trip sheets, or similar record. How to file tax extention Proving business purpose. How to file tax extention   You must generally provide a written statement of the business purpose of an expense. How to file tax extention However, the degree of proof varies according to the circumstances in each case. How to file tax extention If the business purpose of an expense is clear from the surrounding circumstances, then you do not need to give a written explanation. How to file tax extention Example. How to file tax extention If you are a sales representative who calls on customers on an established sales route, you do not have to give a written explanation of the business purpose for traveling that route. How to file tax extention You can satisfy the requirements by recording the length of the delivery route once, the date of each trip at or near the time of the trips, and the total miles you drove the car during the tax year. How to file tax extention You could also establish the date of each trip with a receipt, record of delivery, or other documentary evidence. How to file tax extention Confidential information. How to file tax extention   You do not need to put confidential information relating to an element of a deductible expense (such as the place, business purpose, or business relationship) in your account book, diary, or other record. How to file tax extention However, you do have to record the information elsewhere at or near the time of the expense and have it available to fully prove that element of the expense. How to file tax extention What If I Have Incomplete Records? If you do not have complete records to prove an element of an expense, then you must prove the element with: Your own written or oral statement containing specific information about the element, and Other supporting evidence that is sufficient to establish the element. How to file tax extention If the element is the description of a gift, or the cost, time, place, or date of an expense, the supporting evidence must be either direct evidence or documentary evidence. How to file tax extention Direct evidence can be written statements or the oral testimony of your guests or other witnesses setting forth detailed information about the element. How to file tax extention Documentary evidence can be receipts, paid bills, or similar evidence. How to file tax extention If the element is either the business relationship of your guests or the business purpose of the amount spent, the supporting evidence can be circumstantial rather than direct. How to file tax extention For example, the nature of your work, such as making deliveries, provides circumstantial evidence of the use of your car for business purposes. How to file tax extention Invoices of deliveries establish when you used the car for business. How to file tax extention Table 5-1.

How to file tax extention Example. How to file tax extention You use your car to visit the offices of clients, meet with suppliers and other subcontractors, and pick up and deliver items to clients. How to file tax extention There is no other business use of the car, but you and your family use the car for personal purposes.

How to file tax extention Invoices and bills show that your business use continues at the same rate during the later weeks of each month. How to file tax extention Your weekly records are representative of the use of the car each month and are sufficient evidence to support the percentage of business use for the year. How to file tax extention Exceptional circumstances. How to file tax extention   You can satisfy the substantiation requirements with other evidence if, because of the nature of the situation in which an expense is made, you cannot get a receipt. How to file tax extention This applies if all the following are true. How to file tax extention You were unable to obtain evidence for an element of the expense or use that completely satisfies the requirements explained earlier under What Are Adequate Records . How to file tax extention You are unable to obtain evidence for an element that completely satisfies the two rules listed earlier under What If I Have Incomplete Records .

How to file tax extention Reasons beyond your control include fire, flood, and other casualties. How to file tax extention    Table 5-2. How to file tax extention Daily Business Mileage and Expense Log Name:       Odometer Readings Expenses Date Destination  (City, Town, or Area) Business Purpose Start Stop Miles  this trip Type  (Gas, oil, tolls, etc. How to file tax extention ) Amount                                                                                                                   Weekly  Total             Total Year-to-Date             Separating and Combining Expenses This section explains when expenses must be kept separate and when expenses can be combined. How to file tax extention Separating expenses. How to file tax extention   Each separate payment is generally considered a separate expense. How to file tax extention For example, if you entertain a customer or client at dinner and then go to the theater, the dinner expense and the cost of the theater tickets are two separate expenses. How to file tax extention You must record them separately in your records. How to file tax extention Season or series tickets. How to file tax extention   If you buy season or series tickets for business use, you must treat each ticket in the series as a separate item. How to file tax extention To determine the cost of individual tickets, divide the total cost (but not more than face value) by the number of games or performances in the series. How to file tax extention You must keep records to show whether you use each ticket as a gift or entertainment. How to file tax extention Also, you must be able to prove the cost of nonluxury box seat tickets if you rent a skybox or other private luxury box for more than one event.

How to file tax extention   You can make one daily entry in your record for reasonable categories of expenses. How to file tax extention Examples are taxi fares, telephone calls, or other incidental travel costs. How to file tax extention Meals should be in a separate category. How to file tax extention You can include tips for meal-related services with the costs of the meals. How to file tax extention   Expenses of a similar nature occurring during the course of a single event are considered a single expense. How to file tax extention For example, if during entertainment at a cocktail lounge, you pay separately for each serving of refreshments, the total expense for the refreshments is treated as a single expense. How to file tax extention Car expenses. How to file tax extention   You can account for several uses of your car that can be considered part of a single use, such as a round trip or uninterrupted business use, with a single record. How to file tax extention Minimal personal use, such as a stop for lunch on the way between two business stops, is not an interruption of business use. How to file tax extention Example. How to file tax extention You make deliveries at several different locations on a route that begins and ends at your employer's business premises and that includes a stop at the business premises between two deliveries. How to file tax extention You can account for these using a single record of miles driven. How to file tax extention Gift expenses. How to file tax extention   You do not always have to record the name of each recipient of a gift.

How to file tax extention For example, if you buy a large number of tickets to local high school basketball games and give one or two tickets to each of many customers, it is usually enough to record a general description of the recipients. How to file tax extention Allocating total cost.

How to file tax extention To do so, you must establish the number of persons who participated in the event. How to file tax extention   An allocation would be needed, for example, if you did not have a business relationship with all of your guests. How to file tax extention See Allocating between business and nonbusiness in chapter 2. How to file tax extention If your return is examined. How to file tax extention    If your return is examined, you may have to provide additional information to the IRS. How to file tax extention This information could be needed to clarify or to establish the accuracy or reliability of information contained in your records, statements, testimony, or documentary evidence before a deduction is allowed.
