Deducting Business Expenses

Business expenses are the cost of carrying on a trade or business. These expenses are usually deductible if the business is operated to make a profit.

What Can I Deduct?

To be deductible, a business expense must be both ordinary and necessary. An ordinary expense is one that is common and accepted in your trade or business. A necessary expense is one that is helpful and appropriate for your trade or business. An expense does not have to be indispensable to be considered necessary.

It is important to separate business expenses from the following expenses:

  • The expenses used to figure the cost of goods sold,
  • Capital Expenses, and
  • Personal Expenses.

Cost of Goods Sold

If your business manufactures products or purchases them for resale, you generally must value inventory at the beginning and end of each tax year to determine your cost of goods sold. Some of your expenses may be included in figuring the cost of goods sold. Cost of goods sold is deducted from your gross receipts to figure your gross profit for the year. If you include an expense in the cost of goods sold, you cannot deduct it again as a business expense.

The following are types of expenses that go into figuring the cost of goods sold.

  • The cost of products or raw materials, including freight
  • Storage
  • Direct labor costs (including contributions to pensions or annuity plans) for workers who produce the products
  • Factory overhead

Under the uniform capitalization rules, you must capitalize the direct costs and part of the indirect costs for certain production or resale activities. Indirect costs include rent, interest, taxes, storage, purchasing, processing, repackaging, handling, and administrative costs.

This rule does not apply to personal property you acquire for resale if your average annual gross receipts (or those of your predecessor) for the preceding 3 tax years are not more than $10 million.

For additional information, refer to the chapter on Cost of Goods Sold, Publication 334, Tax Guide for Small Businesses and the chapter on Inventories, Publication 538, Accounting Periods and Methods.

Capital Expenses

You must capitalize, rather than deduct, some costs. These costs are a part of your investment in your business and are called capital expenses. Capital expenses are considered assets in your business. There are, in general, three types of costs you capitalize.

  • Business start-up cost (See the note below)
  • Business assets
  • Improvements

Note: You can elect to deduct or amortize certain business start-up costs. Refer to chapters 7 and 8 of Publication 535, Business Expenses.

Personal versus Business Expenses

Generally, you cannot deduct personal, living, or family expenses. However, if you have an expense for something that is used partly for business and partly for personal purposes, divide the total cost between the business and personal parts. You can deduct the business part.

For example, if you borrow money and use 70% of it for business and the other 30% for a family vacation, you can deduct 70% of the interest as a business expense. The remaining 30% is personal interest and is not deductible. Refer to chapter 4 of Publication 535, Business Expenses, for information on deducting interest and the allocation rules.

Business Use of Your Home

If you use part of your home for business, you may be able to deduct expenses for the business use of your home. These expenses may include mortgage interest, insurance, utilities, repairs, and depreciation. Refer to Home Office Deduction and Publication 587, Business Use of Your Home, for more information.

Business Use of Your Car

If you use your car in your business, you can deduct car expenses. If you use your car for both business and personal purposes, you must divide your expenses based on actual mileage. Refer to Publication 463, Travel, Entertainment, Gift, and Car Expenses. For a list of current and prior year mileage rates see the Standard Mileage Rates.

Other Types of Business Expenses

  • Employees' Pay - You can generally deduct the pay you give your employees for the services they perform for your business.
  • Retirement Plans - Retirement plans are savings plans that offer you tax advantages to set aside money for your own, and your employees' retirement.
  • Rent Expense - Rent is any amount you pay for the use of property you do not own. In general, you can deduct rent as an expense only if the rent is for property you use in your trade or business. If you have or will receive equity in or title to the property, the rent is not deductible.
  • Interest - Business interest expense is an amount charged for the use of money you borrowed for business activities.
  • Taxes - You can deduct various federal, state, local, and foreign taxes directly attributable to your trade or business as business expenses.
  • Insurance - Generally, you can deduct the ordinary and necessary cost of insurance as a business expense, if it is for your trade, business, or profession.

This list is not all inclusive of the types of business expenses that you can deduct. For additional information, refer to Publication 535, Business Expenses.

Irs 1040x forms Individual Income Tax Return. Irs 1040x forms On the debtor's individual tax return, Form 1040, report all income received during the entire year and deduct all allowable expenses. Irs 1040x forms Do not include in income the amount from any debt canceled due to the debtor's bankruptcy. Irs 1040x forms To the extent the debtor has any losses, credits, or basis in property that were previously reduced as a result of canceled debt, these reductions must be included on the debtor's return. Irs 1040x forms See Debt Cancellation, later. Irs 1040x forms Interest on trust accounts in chapter 13 cases. Irs 1040x forms   In chapter 13 proceedings, do not include interest earned on amounts held by the trustee in trust accounts as income on the debtor's return. Irs 1040x forms This interest is not available to either the debtor or creditors, it is available only to the trustee for use by the U. Irs 1040x forms S. Irs 1040x forms Trustee system. Irs 1040x forms The interest is also not taxable to the trustee as income. Irs 1040x forms Individuals in Chapter 7 or 11 When an individual debtor files for bankruptcy under chapter 7 or 11 of the Bankruptcy Code, the bankruptcy estate is treated as a new taxable entity, separate from the individual taxpayer. Irs 1040x forms The bankruptcy estate in a chapter 7 case is represented by a trustee. Irs 1040x forms The trustee is appointed to administer the estate and liquidate any nonexempt assets. Irs 1040x forms In chapter 11 cases, the debtor often remains in control of the assets as a “debtor-in-possession” and acts as the bankruptcy trustee. Irs 1040x forms However, the bankruptcy court, for cause, may appoint a trustee if such appointment is in the best interests of the creditors and the estate. Irs 1040x forms During the chapter 7 or 11 bankruptcy, the debtor continues to file an individual tax return on Form 1040. Irs 1040x forms The bankruptcy trustee files a Form 1041 for the bankruptcy estate. Irs 1040x forms However, when a debtor in a chapter 11 bankruptcy case remains a debtor-in-possession, he or she must file both a Form 1040 individual return and a Form 1041 estate return for the bankruptcy estate (if return filing requirements are met). Irs 1040x forms Although a husband and wife may file a joint bankruptcy petition whose bankruptcy estates are jointly administered, the estates are be treated as two separate entities for tax purposes. Irs 1040x forms Two separate bankruptcy estate income tax returns must be filed (if each spouse separately meets the filing requirements). Irs 1040x forms For information about determining the tax due and paying tax for a chapter 7 or 11 bankruptcy estate, see Bankruptcy Estate Tax Return Filing Requirements and Payment of Tax Due, later. Irs 1040x forms Debtor's Election To End Tax Year – Form 1040 Short tax years. Irs 1040x forms   An individual debtor in a chapter 7 or 11 case may elect to close the debtor's tax year for the year in which the bankruptcy petition is filed, as of the day before the date on which the bankruptcy case commences. Irs 1040x forms If the debtor makes this election, the debtor's tax year is divided into 2 short tax years of less than 12 months each. Irs 1040x forms The first tax year ends on the day before the commencement date and the second tax year begins on the commencement date. Irs 1040x forms   If the election is made, the debtor's federal income tax liability for the first short tax year becomes an allowable claim against the bankruptcy estate arising before the bankruptcy filing. Irs 1040x forms Also, the tax liability for the first short tax year is not subject to discharge under the Bankruptcy Code. Irs 1040x forms    If the debtor does not make an election to end the tax year, the commencement of the bankruptcy case does not affect the debtor's tax year. Irs 1040x forms Also, no part of the debtor's income tax liability for the year in which the bankruptcy case commences can be collected from the bankruptcy estate. Irs 1040x forms Note. Irs 1040x forms The debtor cannot make a short tax year election if no assets, other than exempt property, are in the bankruptcy estate. Irs 1040x forms Making the Election - Filing Requirements First short tax year. Irs 1040x forms   The debtor can elect to end the debtor's tax year by filing a return on Form 1040 for the first short tax year. Irs 1040x forms The return must be filed on or before the 15th day of the fourth full month after the end of that first tax year. Irs 1040x forms Second short tax year. Irs 1040x forms   If the debtor elects to end the tax year on the day before filing the bankruptcy case, the debtor must file the return for the first short tax year in the manner discussed above. Irs 1040x forms   If the debtor makes this election, the debtor must also file a separate Form 1040 for the second short tax year by the regular due date. Irs 1040x forms To avoid delays in processing the return, write “Second Short Year Return After Section 1398 Election” at the top of the return. Irs 1040x forms Example. Irs 1040x forms Jane Doe, an individual calendar year taxpayer, filed a bankruptcy petition under chapter 7 or 11 on May 8, 2012. Irs 1040x forms If Jane elected to close her tax year at the commencement of her case, Jane's first short year for 2012 runs from January 1 through May 7, 2012. Irs 1040x forms Jane's second short year runs from May 8, 2012, through December 31, 2012. Irs 1040x forms To have a timely filed election for the first short year, Jane must file Form 1040 (or an extension of time to file) for the period January 1 through May 7 by September 15. Irs 1040x forms To avoid delays in processing the return, write “Section 1398 Election” at the top of the return. Irs 1040x forms The debtor may also make the election by attaching a statement to Form 4868, Automatic Extension of Time to File an U. Irs 1040x forms S. Irs 1040x forms Individual Tax Return. Irs 1040x forms The statement must state that the debtor elects under IRC section 1398(d)(2) to close the debtor's tax year on the day before filing the bankruptcy case. Irs 1040x forms The debtor must file Form 4868 by the due date of the return for the first short tax year. Irs 1040x forms The debtor's spouse may also elect to close his or her tax year, see Election by debtor's spouse, below. Irs 1040x forms Election by debtor's spouse. Irs 1040x forms   If the debtor is married, the debtor's spouse may join in the election to end the tax year. Irs 1040x forms If the debtor and spouse make a joint election, the debtor must file a joint return for the first short tax year. Irs 1040x forms The debtor must elect by the due date for filing the return for the first short tax year. Irs 1040x forms Once the election is made, it cannot be revoked for the first short tax year. Irs 1040x forms However, the election does not prevent the debtor and the spouse from filing separate returns for the second short tax year. Irs 1040x forms Later bankruptcy of spouse. Irs 1040x forms    If the debtor's spouse files for bankruptcy later in the same year, he or she may also choose to end his or her tax year, regardless of whether he or she joined in the election to end the debtor's tax year. Irs 1040x forms   As each spouse has a separate bankruptcy, one or both of them may have 3 short tax years in the same calendar year. Irs 1040x forms If the debtor's spouse joined the debtor's election or if the debtor had not made the election to end the tax year, the debtor can join in the spouse's election. Irs 1040x forms However, if the debtor made an election and the spouse did not join that election, the debtor cannot then join the spouse's later election. Irs 1040x forms The debtor and the spouse are precluded from this election because they have different tax years. Irs 1040x forms This results because the debtor does not have a tax year ending the day before the spouse's filing for bankruptcy, and the debtor cannot file a joint return for a year ending on the day before the spouse's filing of bankruptcy. Irs 1040x forms Example 1. Irs 1040x forms Paul and Mary Harris are calendar-year taxpayers. Irs 1040x forms Paul's voluntary chapter 7 bankruptcy case begins on March 4. Irs 1040x forms If Paul does not make an election, his tax year does not end on March 3. Irs 1040x forms If he makes an election, Paul's first tax year is January 1–March 3, and his second tax year begins on March 4. Irs 1040x forms Mary could join in Paul's election as long as they file a joint return for the tax year January 1–March 3. Irs 1040x forms They must make the election by July 15, the due date for filing the joint return. Irs 1040x forms Example 2. Irs 1040x forms Fred and Ethel Barnes are calendar-year taxpayers. Irs 1040x forms Fred's voluntary chapter 7 bankruptcy case begins on May 6, and Ethel's bankruptcy case begins on November 1 of the same year. Irs 1040x forms Ethel could elect to end her tax year on October 31. Irs 1040x forms If Fred did not elect to end his tax year on May 5, or if he elected to do so but Ethel had not joined in his election, Ethel would have 2 tax years in the same calendar year if she decided to close her tax year. Irs 1040x forms Her first tax year is January 1–October 31, and her second year is November 1–December 31. Irs 1040x forms If Fred did not end his tax year as of May 5, he could join in Ethel's election to close her tax year on October 31, but only if they file a joint return for the tax year January 1–October 31. Irs 1040x forms If Fred elected to end his tax year on May 5, but Ethel did not join in Fred's election, Fred cannot join in Ethel's election to end her tax year on October 31. Irs 1040x forms Fred and Ethel cannot file a joint return for that short tax year because their tax years preceding October 31 were not the same. Irs 1040x forms Example 3. Irs 1040x forms Jack and Karen Thomas are calendar-year taxpayers. Irs 1040x forms Karen's voluntary chapter 7 bankruptcy case began on April 10, and Jack's voluntary chapter 7 bankruptcy case began on October 3 of the same year. Irs 1040x forms Karen elected to close her tax year on April 9 and Jack joins in Karen's election. Irs 1040x forms Under these facts, Jack would have 3 tax years for the same calendar year if he makes the election relating to his own bankruptcy case. Irs 1040x forms The first tax year would be January 1–April 9; the second, April 10–October 2; and the third, October 3–December 31. Irs 1040x forms Karen may join in Jack's election if they file a joint return for the second short tax year (April 10–October 2). Irs 1040x forms If Karen does join in, she would have the same 3 short tax years as Jack. Irs 1040x forms Also, if Karen joins in Jack's election, they may file a joint return for the third tax year (October 3–December 31), but they are not required to do so. Irs 1040x forms Annualizing taxable income. Irs 1040x forms   If the debtor elects to close the tax year, the debtor must annualize taxable income for each short tax year in the same manner a change in annual accounting period is calculated. Irs 1040x forms See Short Tax Year in Publication 538, for information on how to annualize the debtor's income and to figure the tax for the short tax year. Irs 1040x forms Dismissal of bankruptcy case. Irs 1040x forms   If the bankruptcy court later dismisses an individual chapter 7 or 11 case, the bankruptcy estate is no longer treated as a separate taxable entity. Irs 1040x forms It is as if no bankruptcy estate was created for tax purposes. Irs 1040x forms In this situation, the debtor must file amended tax returns on Form 1040X, to replace all full or short year individual returns (Form 1040) and bankruptcy estate returns (Form 1041) filed as a result of the bankruptcy case. Irs 1040x forms Income, deductions, and credits previously reported by the bankruptcy estate must be reported on the debtor's amended returns. Irs 1040x forms Attach a statement to the amended returns explaining why the debtor is filing an amended return. Irs 1040x forms Taxes and the Bankruptcy Estate Property of the bankruptcy estate. Irs 1040x forms   At the commencement of a bankruptcy case a bankruptcy estate is created. Irs 1040x forms Bankruptcy law determines which of the debtor's assets become part of a bankruptcy estate. Irs 1040x forms This estate generally includes all of the debtor's legal and equitable interests in property as of the commencement date. Irs 1040x forms However, there are exceptions and certain property is exempted or excluded from the bankruptcy estate. Irs 1040x forms Note. Irs 1040x forms Exempt property and abandoned property are initially part of the bankruptcy estate, but are subsequently removed from the estate. Irs 1040x forms Excluded property is never included in the estate. Irs 1040x forms Transfer of assets between debtor and bankruptcy estate. Irs 1040x forms   The transfer (other than by sale or exchange) of an asset from the debtor to the bankruptcy estate is not treated as a disposition for income tax purposes. Irs 1040x forms The transfer does not result in gain or loss, acceleration of income or deductions, or recapture of deductions or credits. Irs 1040x forms For example, the transfer of an installment obligation to the estate would not accelerate gain under the rules for reporting installment sales. Irs 1040x forms The estate assumes the same basis, holding period, and character of the transferred assets. Irs 1040x forms Also, the estate generally accounts for the transferred assets in the same manner as debtor. Irs 1040x forms   When the bankruptcy estate is terminated or dissolved, any resulting transfer (other than by sale or exchange) of the estate's assets back to the debtor is also not treated as a disposition for tax purposes. Irs 1040x forms The transfer does not result in gain or loss, acceleration of income or deductions, or recapture of deductions or credits to the estate. Irs 1040x forms Abandoned property. Irs 1040x forms    The abandonment of property by the estate to the debtor is a nontaxable disposition of property. Irs 1040x forms If the debtor received abandoned property from the bankruptcy estate, the debtor assumes the same basis in the property that the bankruptcy estate had. Irs 1040x forms Separate taxable entity. Irs 1040x forms   When an individual files a bankruptcy petition under chapter 7 or 11, the bankruptcy estate is treated as a separate taxable entity from the debtor. Irs 1040x forms The court appointed trustee or the debtor-in-possession is responsible for preparing and filing all of the bankruptcy estate's tax returns, including its income tax return on Form 1041, U. Irs 1040x forms S. Irs 1040x forms Income Tax Return for Estates and Trusts, and paying its taxes. Irs 1040x forms The debtor remains responsible for filing his or her own returns on Form 1040, U. Irs 1040x forms S. Irs 1040x forms Individual Income Tax Return, and paying taxes on income that does not belong to the estate. Irs 1040x forms Employer identification number. Irs 1040x forms   The trustee or debtor-in-possession must obtain an EIN for a bankruptcy estate. Irs 1040x forms The trustee or debtor-in-possession uses this EIN on all tax returns filed for the bankruptcy estate with the IRS, including estimated tax returns. Irs 1040x forms See Employer identification number, under Bankruptcy Estate Tax Return Filing Requirements and Payment of Tax Due, later. Irs 1040x forms    The social security number of the individual debtor cannot be used as the EIN for the bankruptcy estate. Irs 1040x forms Income, deductions, and credits – Form 1040. Irs 1040x forms   In an individual chapter 7 or 11 bankruptcy case, do not include the income, deductions, and credits that belong to the bankruptcy estate on the debtor's individual income tax return (Form 1040). Irs 1040x forms Also, do not include as income on the debtor's return the amount of any debt canceled by reason of the bankruptcy discharge. Irs 1040x forms The bankruptcy estate must reduce certain losses, credits, and the basis in property (to the extent of these items) by the amount of canceled debt. Irs 1040x forms See Debt Cancellation, below. Irs 1040x forms Note. Irs 1040x forms The debtor may not be able to claim certain deductions available to the bankruptcy estate such as administrative expenses. Irs 1040x forms Additionally, the bankruptcy exclusion cannot be used to exclude income from a cancelled debt if the discharge of indebtedness was not within the bankruptcy case, even though the debtor was under the bankruptcy court's protection at the time. Irs 1040x forms However, other exclusions, such as the insolvency exclusion, may apply. Irs 1040x forms Bankruptcy Estate – Income, Deductions, and Credits Bankruptcy Estate Income Income of the estate in individual chapter 7 cases. Irs 1040x forms    The gross income of the bankruptcy estate includes gross income of the debtor to which the estate is entitled under the Bankruptcy Code. Irs 1040x forms Gross income also includes income generated by the bankruptcy estate from property of the estate after the commencement of the case. Irs 1040x forms   Gross income of the bankruptcy estate does not include amounts received or accrued by the debtor before the commencement of the case. Irs 1040x forms Additionally, in chapter 7 cases, gross income of the bankruptcy estate does not include any income that the debtor earns after the date of the bankruptcy petition. Irs 1040x forms Income of the estate in individual chapter 11 cases. Irs 1040x forms    In chapter 11 cases, under IRC section 1398(e)(1), gross income of the bankruptcy estate includes income that the debtor earns for services performed after the bankruptcy petition date. Irs 1040x forms Also, earnings from services performed by an individual debtor after the commencement of the chapter 11 case are property of the bankruptcy estate under section 1115 of the Bankruptcy Code (11 U. Irs 1040x forms S. Irs 1040x forms C. Irs 1040x forms section 1115). Irs 1040x forms Note. Irs 1040x forms A debtor-in-possession may be compensated by the estate for managing or operating a trade or business that the debtor conducted before the commencement of the bankruptcy case. Irs 1040x forms Such payments should be reported by the debtor as miscellaneous income on his or her individual income tax return (Form 1040). Irs 1040x forms Amounts paid by the estate to the debtor-in-possession for managing or operating the trade or business may qualify as administrative expenses of the estate. Irs 1040x forms See Administrative expenses, below. Irs 1040x forms Conversion or dismissal of chapter 11 cases. Irs 1040x forms   If a chapter 11 case is converted to a chapter 13 case, the chapter 13 estate is not a separate taxable entity and earnings from post-conversion services and income from property of the estate realized after the conversion to chapter 13 are taxed to the debtor. Irs 1040x forms If the chapter 11 case is converted to a chapter 7 case, 11 U. Irs 1040x forms S. Irs 1040x forms C. Irs 1040x forms section 1115 does not apply after conversion and: Earnings from post-conversion services will be taxed to the debtor, rather than the estate, and The property of the chapter 11 estate will become property of the chapter 7 estate. Irs 1040x forms Any income on this property will be taxed to the estate even if the income is realized after the conversion to chapter 7. Irs 1040x forms If a chapter 11 case is dismissed, the debtor is treated as if the bankruptcy case had never been filed and as if no bankruptcy estate had been created. Irs 1040x forms Bankruptcy Estate Deductions and Credits A bankruptcy estate deducts expenses incurred in a trade, business, or activity, and uses credits in the same way the debtor would have deducted or credited them had he or she continued operations. Irs 1040x forms Note. Irs 1040x forms Expenses may be disallowed under other provisions of the IRC (such as the disallowance of certain capital expenditures or expenses relating to tax-exempt interest). Irs 1040x forms Administrative expenses. Irs 1040x forms   Allowable expenses include administrative expenses. Irs 1040x forms    Administrative expenses can only be deducted by the estate, never by the debtor. Irs 1040x forms   The bankruptcy estate is allowed deductions for bankruptcy administrative expenses and fees, including accounting fees, attorney fees, and court costs. Irs 1040x forms These expenses are deductible on Form 1040, Schedule A as miscellaneous itemized deductions not subject to the 2% floor on miscellaneous itemized deductions, because they would not have been incurred if property had not been held by the bankruptcy estate. Irs 1040x forms See IRC section 67(e). Irs 1040x forms Administrative expenses of the bankruptcy estate attributable to conducting a trade or business for the production of estate rents or royalties are deductible in arriving at adjusted gross income on Form 1040, Schedules C, E, and F. Irs 1040x forms Note. Irs 1040x forms The bankruptcy estate uses Form 1041 as a transmittal for the tax return prepared using Form 1040 and its schedules. Irs 1040x forms See Transmittal for Form 1040 under Tax Return Filing Requirements and Payment of Tax, later. Irs 1040x forms Administrative expense loss. Irs 1040x forms   If the administrative expenses of the bankruptcy estate are more than its gross income for a tax year, the excess amount may be carried back 3 years and forward 7 years. Irs 1040x forms The amounts can only be carried to a tax year of the estate and never to a debtor's tax year. Irs 1040x forms The excess amount to be carried back or forward is treated like a net operating loss (NOL) and must first be carried back to the earliest year possible. Irs 1040x forms For a discussion of NOLs, see Publication 536. Irs 1040x forms Attribute carryovers. Irs 1040x forms   The bankruptcy estate may use its tax attributes the same way that the debtor would have used them. Irs 1040x forms These items are determined as of the first day of the debtor's tax year in which the bankruptcy case begins. Irs 1040x forms The bankruptcy estate assumes the following tax attributes from the debtor: NOL carryovers, Carryovers of excess charitable contributions, Recovery of tax benefit items, Credit carryovers, Capital loss carryovers, Basis, holding period, and character of assets, Method of accounting, Passive activity loss and credit carryovers, Unused at-risk deductions, and Other tax attributes provided in the regulations. Irs 1040x forms   Certain tax attributes of the bankruptcy estate must be reduced by the amount of income that was previously excluded as a result of cancellation of debt during the bankruptcy proceeding. Irs 1040x forms See Debt Cancellation, later. Irs 1040x forms   When the bankruptcy estate is terminated (for example, when the case ends), the debtor assumes any remaining tax attributes previously taken over by the bankruptcy estate. Irs 1040x forms The debtor also generally assumes any of the tax attributes, listed above, that arose during the administration of the bankruptcy estate. Irs 1040x forms Note. Irs 1040x forms The debtor does not assume the bankruptcy estate's administrative expense losses because they cannot be used by an individual taxpayer filing Form 1040. Irs 1040x forms See Administrative expense loss, above. Irs 1040x forms Passive and at-risk activities. Irs 1040x forms   For bankruptcy cases beginning after November 8, 1992, passive activity carryover losses and credits and unused at-risk deductions are treated as tax attributes passing from the debtor to the bankruptcy estate, which the estate then passes back to the debtor when the bankruptcy estate terminates. Irs 1040x forms Additionally, transfers to the debtor (other than by sale or exchange) of interests in passive or at-risk activities are treated as non-taxable exchanges. Irs 1040x forms These transfers include the return of exempt property and abandonment of estate property to the debtor. Irs 1040x forms Carrybacks from the debtor's activities. Irs 1040x forms   The debtor cannot carry back any NOL or credit carryback from a tax year ending after the bankruptcy case has begun to any tax year ending before the case began. Irs 1040x forms Carrybacks from the bankruptcy estate. Irs 1040x forms   If the bankruptcy estate has an NOL that did not pass to the estate from the debtor under the attribute carryover rules, the estate can carry the loss back not only to its own earlier tax years but also to the debtor's tax years before the year the bankruptcy case began. Irs 1040x forms The estate may also carry back excess credits, such as the general business credit, to the pre-bankruptcy tax years. Irs 1040x forms Tax Reporting – Chapter 11 Cases Allocation of income and credits on information returns and required statement for returns for individual chapter 11 cases. Irs 1040x forms    In chapter 11 cases, when an employer issues a Form W-2 reporting all of the debtor's wages, salary, or other compensation for a calendar year, and a portion of the earnings represent post-petition services includible in the estate's gross income, the Form W-2 amounts must be allocated between the estate and the debtor. Irs 1040x forms The debtor-in-possession or trustee must allocate the income amount reported in box 1 and the income tax withheld reported in box 2 between the debtor and the estate. Irs 1040x forms These allocations must reflect that the debtor's gross earnings from post-petition services and gross income from post-petition property are, generally, includible in the estate's gross income and not the debtor's gross income. Irs 1040x forms The debtor and trustee may use a simple percentage method to allocate income and income tax withheld. Irs 1040x forms The same method must be used to allocate the income and the withheld tax. Irs 1040x forms Example. Irs 1040x forms If 20% of the wages reported on Form W-2 for a calendar year were earned after the commencement of the case and are included in the estate's gross income, 20% of the withheld income tax reported on Form W-2 must also be claimed as a credit on the estate's income tax return. Irs 1040x forms Likewise, 80% of wages must be reported by the debtor and 80% of the income tax withheld must be claimed as a credit on the debtor's income tax return. Irs 1040x forms See IRC section 31(a). Irs 1040x forms   If information returns are issued to the debtor for gross income, gross proceeds, or other reportable payments that should have been reported to the bankruptcy estate, the debtor-in-possession or trustee must allocate the improperly reported income in a reasonable manner between the debtor and the estate. Irs 1040x forms In general, the allocation must ensure that any income and income tax withheld attributable to the post-petition period is reported on the estate's return, and any income and income tax withheld attributable to the pre-petition period is reported on the debtor's return. Irs 1040x forms    IRS Notice 2006-83 requires the debtor to attach a statement to his or her individual income tax return (Form 1040) stating that the return is filed subject to a chapter 11 bankruptcy case. Irs 1040x forms The statement must also: Show the allocations of income and income tax withheld, Describe the method used to allocate income and income tax withheld, and List the filing date of the bankruptcy case, the bankruptcy court in which the case is pending, the bankruptcy court case number, and the bankruptcy estate's EIN. Irs 1040x forms Note. Irs 1040x forms The debtor-in-possession or trustee must attach a similar statement to the bankruptcy estate's income tax return (Form 1041). Irs 1040x forms   The model Notice 2006-83 Statement, shown above, may be used by debtors, debtors-in-possession, and trustees to satisfy the reporting requirement. Irs 1040x forms Self-employment taxes in individual chapter 11 cases. Irs 1040x forms   IRC section 1401 imposes a tax upon the self-employment income, that is, the net earnings from self-employment of an individual. Irs 1040x forms Net earnings from self-employment are equal to the gross income derived by an individual from any trade or business carried on by such individual, less deductions attributable to the business. Irs 1040x forms   Neither section 1115 of the Bankruptcy Code nor IRC section 1398 addresses the application of self-employment tax to the post-petition earnings of the individual debtor. Irs 1040x forms Therefore, if the debtor continues to derive gross income from the performance of services as a self-employed individual after the commencement of the bankruptcy case, the debtor must continue to report the debtor's self-employment income on Schedule SE (Form 1040) of the debtor's income tax return. Irs 1040x forms This schedule includes self-employment income earned post-petition and the attributable deductions. Irs 1040x forms The debtor must pay any self-employment tax imposed by IRC section 1401. Irs 1040x forms Employment taxes and employer's obligation to file Form W-2 in individual chapter 11 cases. Irs 1040x forms   In chapter 11 cases, post-petition wages earned by a debtor are generally treated as gross income of the estate. Irs 1040x forms However, section 1115 of the Bankruptcy Code (11 U.

Irs 1040x forms See IRC section 6109(a)(2). Irs 1040x forms As these payments are the property of the estate under section 1115 of the Bankruptcy Code, the payors should report the gross income, gross proceeds, or other reportable payments on the appropriate information return using the estate's name and EIN as required under the IRC and regulations (see IRC sections 6041 through 6049). Irs 1040x forms   The trustee or debtor-in-possession should not, however, provide the EIN to a person (or entity) filing Form W-2 reporting the debtor's wages or other compensation, as section 1115 of the Bankruptcy Code does not affect the determination of what constitutes wages for purposes of federal income tax withholding or FICA.

Irs 1040x forms Tax-Free Reorganizations The tax-free reorganization provisions of the Internal Revenue Code allow a corporation to transfer all or part of its assets to another corporation in a bankruptcy under title 11 of the United States Code or in a similar case. Irs 1040x forms However, under the reorganization plan, the stock or securities of the corporation to which the assets are transferred must be distributed in a transaction that qualifies under IRC section 354, 355, or 356. Irs 1040x forms A “similar case” includes a receivership, foreclosure, or other similar proceeding in a federal or state court. Irs 1040x forms In these cases, any party to the reorganization must be under the jurisdiction of the court and the transfer of assets under the plan of reorganization must be approved by the court. Irs 1040x forms In a receivership, foreclosure, or similar proceeding before a federal or state agency involving certain financial institutions, the agency is treated as a court. Irs 1040x forms Generally, IRC section 354 provides that no gain or loss is recognized if a corporation's stock is exchanged solely for stock or securities in a corporation that is a party to the reorganization under a qualifying reorganization plan.

Irs 1040x forms In this situation, gain is recognized by the shareholder, but only to the extent of the money and the FMV of the other property received. Irs 1040x forms No loss is recognized in this situation. Irs 1040x forms Exemption from tax return filing A trustee, receiver, or assignee of a corporation in bankruptcy, receivership, or in the process of dissolving, may apply to the IRS for relief from filing federal income tax returns for the corporation.

Irs 1040x forms However, in bankruptcy cases other than those of individuals filing under chapter 7 or 11, such as a corporate bankruptcy, the IRS must find that the trustee has a material interest that will be affected by information on the return. Irs 1040x forms Material interest is generally defined as a financial or monetary interest. Irs 1040x forms Material interest is not limited to the trustee's responsibility to file a return on behalf of the bankruptcy estate. Irs 1040x forms Receiverships Court-established receiverships sometimes arise in connection with bankruptcies.

Irs 1040x forms After a return is filed, the IRS will either accept the return as filed or select the return for examination.
