Irs forms 2009 Introduction This chapter discusses the tax treatment of business interest expense. Irs forms 2009 Business interest expense is an amount charged for the use of money you borrowed for business activities. Irs forms 2009 Topics - This chapter discusses: Allocation of interest Interest you can deduct Interest you cannot deduct Capitalization of interest When to deduct interest Below-market loans Useful Items - You may want to see: Publication 537 Installment Sales 550 Investment Income and Expenses 936 Home Mortgage Interest Deduction Form (and Instructions) Sch A (Form 1040) Itemized Deductions Sch E (Form 1040) Supplemental Income and Loss Sch K-1 (Form 1065) Partner's Share of Income, Deductions, Credits, etc. Irs forms 2009 Sch K-1 (Form 1120S) Shareholder's Share of Income, Deductions, Credits, etc. Irs forms 2009 1098 Mortgage Interest Statement 3115 Application for Change in Accounting Method 4952 Investment Interest Expense Deduction 8582 Passive Activity Loss Limitations See chapter 12 for information about getting publications and forms. Irs forms 2009 Allocation of Interest The rules for deducting interest vary, depending on whether the loan proceeds are used for business, personal, or investment activities. Irs forms 2009 If you use the proceeds of a loan for more than one type of expense, you must allocate the interest based on the use of the loan's proceeds. Irs forms 2009 Allocate your interest expense to the following categories. Irs forms 2009 Nonpassive trade or business activity interest Passive trade or business activity interest Investment interest Portfolio interest Personal interest In general, you allocate interest on a loan the same way you allocate the loan proceeds. Irs forms 2009 You allocate loan proceeds by tracing disbursements to specific uses. Irs forms 2009 The easiest way to trace disbursements to specific uses is to keep the proceeds of a particular loan separate from any other funds. Irs forms 2009 Secured loan. Irs forms 2009   The allocation of loan proceeds and the related interest is not generally affected by the use of property that secures the loan. Irs forms 2009 Example. Irs forms 2009 You secure a loan with property used in your business. Irs forms 2009 You use the loan proceeds to buy an automobile for personal use. Irs forms 2009 You must allocate interest expense on the loan to personal use (purchase of the automobile) even though the loan is secured by business property. Irs forms 2009    If the property that secures the loan is your home, you generally do not allocate the loan proceeds or the related interest. Irs forms 2009 The interest is usually deductible as qualified home mortgage interest, regardless of how the loan proceeds are used. Irs forms 2009 For more information, see Publication 936. Irs forms 2009 Allocation period. Irs forms 2009   The period for which a loan is allocated to a particular use begins on the date the proceeds are used and ends on the earlier of the following dates. Irs forms 2009 The date the loan is repaid. Irs forms 2009 The date the loan is reallocated to another use. Irs forms 2009 Proceeds not disbursed to borrower. Irs forms 2009   Even if the lender disburses the loan proceeds to a third party, the allocation of the loan is still based on your use of the funds. Irs forms 2009 This applies whether you pay for property, services, or anything else by incurring a loan, or you take property subject to a debt. Irs forms 2009 Proceeds deposited in borrower's account. Irs forms 2009   Treat loan proceeds deposited in an account as property held for investment. Irs forms 2009 It does not matter whether the account pays interest. Irs forms 2009 Any interest you pay on the loan is investment interest expense. Irs forms 2009 If you withdraw the proceeds of the loan, you must reallocate the loan based on the use of the funds. Irs forms 2009 Example. Irs forms 2009 Celina, a calendar-year taxpayer, borrows $100,000 on January 4 and immediately uses the proceeds to open a checking account. Irs forms 2009 No other amounts are deposited in the account during the year and no part of the loan principal is repaid during the year. Irs forms 2009 On April 2, Celina uses $20,000 from the checking account for a passive activity expenditure. Irs forms 2009 On September 4, Celina uses an additional $40,000 from the account for personal purposes. Irs forms 2009 Under the interest allocation rules, the entire $100,000 loan is treated as property held for investment for the period from January 4 through April 1. Irs forms 2009 From April 2 through September 3, Celina must treat $20,000 of the loan as used in the passive activity and $80,000 of the loan as property held for investment. Irs forms 2009 From September 4 through December 31, she must treat $40,000 of the loan as used for personal purposes, $20,000 as used in the passive activity, and $40,000 as property held for investment. Irs forms 2009 Order of funds spent. Irs forms 2009   Generally, you treat loan proceeds deposited in an account as used (spent) before either of the following amounts. Irs forms 2009 Any unborrowed amounts held in the same account. Irs forms 2009 Any amounts deposited after these loan proceeds. Irs forms 2009 Example. Irs forms 2009 On January 9, Olena opened a checking account, depositing $500 of the proceeds of Loan A and $1,000 of unborrowed funds. Irs forms 2009 The following table shows the transactions in her account during the tax year. Irs forms 2009 Date Transaction January 9 $500 proceeds of Loan A and $1,000 unborrowed funds deposited January 14 $500 proceeds of Loan B  deposited February 19 $800 used for personal purposes February 27 $700 used for passive activity June 19 $1,000 proceeds of Loan C  deposited November 20 $800 used for an investment December 18 $600 used for personal purposes Olena treats the $800 used for personal purposes as made from the $500 proceeds of Loan A and $300 of the proceeds of Loan B. Irs forms 2009 She treats the $700 used for a passive activity as made from the remaining $200 proceeds of Loan B and $500 of unborrowed funds. Irs forms 2009 She treats the $800 used for an investment as made entirely from the proceeds of Loan C. Irs forms 2009 She treats the $600 used for personal purposes as made from the remaining $200 proceeds of Loan C and $400 of unborrowed funds. Irs forms 2009 For the periods during which loan proceeds are held in the account, Olena treats them as property held for investment. Irs forms 2009 Payments from checking accounts. Irs forms 2009   Generally, you treat a payment from a checking or similar account as made at the time the check is written if you mail or deliver it to the payee within a reasonable period after you write it. Irs forms 2009 You can treat checks written on the same day as written in any order. Irs forms 2009 Amounts paid within 30 days. Irs forms 2009   If you receive loan proceeds in cash or if the loan proceeds are deposited in an account, you can treat any payment (up to the amount of the proceeds) made from any account you own, or from cash, as made from those proceeds. Irs forms 2009 This applies to any payment made within 30 days before or after the proceeds are received in cash or deposited in your account. Irs forms 2009   If the loan proceeds are deposited in an account, you can apply this rule even if the rules stated earlier under Order of funds spent would otherwise require you to treat the proceeds as used for other purposes. Irs forms 2009 If you apply this rule to any payments, disregard those payments (and the proceeds from which they are made) when applying the rules stated under Order of funds spent. Irs forms 2009   If you received the loan proceeds in cash, you can treat the payment as made on the date you received the cash instead of the date you actually made the payment. Irs forms 2009 Example. Irs forms 2009 Giovanni gets a loan of $1,000 on August 4 and receives the proceeds in cash. Irs forms 2009 Giovanni deposits $1,500 in an account on August 18 and on August 28 writes a check on the account for a passive activity expense. Irs forms 2009 Also, Giovanni deposits his paycheck, deposits other loan proceeds, and pays his bills during the same period. Irs forms 2009 Regardless of these other transactions, Giovanni can treat $1,000 of the deposit he made on August 18 as being paid on August 4 from the loan proceeds. Irs forms 2009 In addition, Giovanni can treat the passive activity expense he paid on August 28 as made from the $1,000 loan proceeds treated as deposited in the account. Irs forms 2009 Optional method for determining date of reallocation. Irs forms 2009   You can use the following method to determine the date loan proceeds are reallocated to another use. Irs forms 2009 You can treat all payments from loan proceeds in the account during any month as taking place on the later of the following dates. Irs forms 2009 The first day of that month. Irs forms 2009 The date the loan proceeds are deposited in the account. Irs forms 2009 However, you can use this optional method only if you treat all payments from the account during the same calendar month in the same way. Irs forms 2009 Interest on a segregated account. Irs forms 2009   If you have an account that contains only loan proceeds and interest earned on the account, you can treat any payment from that account as being made first from the interest. Irs forms 2009 When the interest earned is used up, any remaining payments are from loan proceeds. Irs forms 2009 Example. Irs forms 2009 You borrowed $20,000 and used the proceeds of this loan to open a new savings account. Irs forms 2009 When the account had earned interest of $867, you withdrew $20,000 for personal purposes. Irs forms 2009 You can treat the withdrawal as coming first from the interest earned on the account, $867, and then from the loan proceeds, $19,133 ($20,000 − $867). Irs forms 2009 All the interest charged on the loan from the time it was deposited in the account until the time of the withdrawal is investment interest expense. Irs forms 2009 The interest charged on the part of the proceeds used for personal purposes ($19,133) from the time you withdrew it until you either repay it or reallocate it to another use is personal interest expense. Irs forms 2009 The interest charged on the loan proceeds you left in the account ($867) continues to be investment interest expense until you either repay it or reallocate it to another use. Irs forms 2009 Loan repayment. Irs forms 2009   When you repay any part of a loan allocated to more than one use, treat it as being repaid in the following order. Irs forms 2009 Personal use. Irs forms 2009 Investments and passive activities (other than those included in (3)). Irs forms 2009 Passive activities in connection with a rental real estate activity in which you actively participate. Irs forms 2009 Former passive activities. Irs forms 2009 Trade or business use and expenses for certain low-income housing projects. Irs forms 2009 Line of credit (continuous borrowings). Irs forms 2009   The following rules apply if you have a line of credit or similar arrangement. Irs forms 2009 Treat all borrowed funds on which interest accrues at the same fixed or variable rate as a single loan. Irs forms 2009 Treat borrowed funds or parts of borrowed funds on which interest accrues at different fixed or variable rates as different loans. Irs forms 2009 Treat these loans as repaid in the order shown on the loan agreement. Irs forms 2009 Loan refinancing. Irs forms 2009   Allocate the replacement loan to the same uses to which the repaid loan was allocated. Irs forms 2009 Make the allocation only to the extent you use the proceeds of the new loan to repay any part of the original loan. Irs forms 2009 Debt-financed distribution. Irs forms 2009   A debt-financed distribution occurs when a partnership or S corporation borrows funds and allocates those funds to distributions made to partners or shareholders. Irs forms 2009 The manner in which you report the interest expense associated with the distributed debt proceeds depends on your use of those proceeds. Irs forms 2009 How to report. Irs forms 2009   If the proceeds were used in a nonpassive trade or business activity, report the interest on Schedule E (Form 1040), line 28; enter “interest expense” and the name of the partnership or S corporation in column (a) and the amount in column (h). Irs forms 2009 If the proceeds were used in a passive activity, follow the Instructions for Form 8582, Passive Activity Loss Limitations, to determine the amount of interest expense that can be reported on Schedule E (Form 1040), line 28; enter “interest expense” and the name of the partnership in column (a) and the amount in column (f). Irs forms 2009 If the proceeds were used in an investment activity, enter the interest on Form 4952. Irs forms 2009 If the proceeds are used for personal purposes, the interest is generally not deductible. Irs forms 2009 Interest You Can Deduct You can generally deduct as a business expense all interest you pay or accrue during the tax year on debts related to your trade or business. Irs forms 2009 Interest relates to your trade or business if you use the proceeds of the loan for a trade or business expense. Irs forms 2009 It does not matter what type of property secures the loan. Irs forms 2009 You can deduct interest on a debt only if you meet all the following requirements. Irs forms 2009 You are legally liable for that debt. Irs forms 2009 Both you and the lender intend that the debt be repaid. Irs forms 2009 You and the lender have a true debtor-creditor relationship. Irs forms 2009 Partial liability. Irs forms 2009   If you are liable for part of a business debt, you can deduct only your share of the total interest paid or accrued. Irs forms 2009 Example. Irs forms 2009 You and your brother borrow money. Irs forms 2009 You are liable for 50% of the note. Irs forms 2009 You use your half of the loan in your business, and you make one-half of the loan payments. Irs forms 2009 You can deduct your half of the total interest payments as a business deduction. Irs forms 2009 Mortgage. Irs forms 2009   Generally, mortgage interest paid or accrued on real estate you own legally or equitably is deductible. Irs forms 2009 However, rather than deducting the interest currently, you may have to add it to the cost basis of the property as explained later under Capitalization of Interest. Irs forms 2009 Statement. Irs forms 2009   If you paid $600 or more of mortgage interest (including certain points) during the year on any one mortgage, you generally will receive a Form 1098 or a similar statement. Irs forms 2009 You will receive the statement if you pay interest to a person (including a financial institution or a cooperative housing corporation) in the course of that person's trade or business. Irs forms 2009 A governmental unit is a person for purposes of furnishing the statement. Irs forms 2009   If you receive a refund of interest you overpaid in an earlier year, this amount will be reported in box 3 of Form 1098. Irs forms 2009 You cannot deduct this amount. Irs forms 2009 For information on how to report this refund, see Refunds of interest, later in this chapter. Irs forms 2009 Expenses paid to obtain a mortgage. Irs forms 2009   Certain expenses you pay to obtain a mortgage cannot be deducted as interest. Irs forms 2009 These expenses, which include mortgage commissions, abstract fees, and recording fees, are capital expenses. Irs forms 2009 If the property mortgaged is business or income-producing property, you can amortize the costs over the life of the mortgage. Irs forms 2009 Prepayment penalty. Irs forms 2009   If you pay off your mortgage early and pay the lender a penalty for doing this, you can deduct the penalty as interest. Irs forms 2009 Interest on employment tax deficiency. Irs forms 2009   Interest charged on employment taxes assessed on your business is deductible. Irs forms 2009 Original issue discount (OID). Irs forms 2009   OID is a form of interest. Irs forms 2009 A loan (mortgage or other debt) generally has OID when its proceeds are less than its principal amount. Irs forms 2009 The OID is the difference between the stated redemption price at maturity and the issue price of the loan. Irs forms 2009   A loan's stated redemption price at maturity is the sum of all amounts (principal and interest) payable on it other than qualified stated interest. Irs forms 2009 Qualified stated interest is stated interest that is unconditionally payable in cash or property (other than another loan of the issuer) at least annually over the term of the loan at a single fixed rate. Irs forms 2009 You generally deduct OID over the term of the loan. Irs forms 2009 Figure the amount to deduct each year using the constant-yield method, unless the OID on the loan is de minimis. Irs forms 2009 De minimis OID. Irs forms 2009   The OID is de minimis if it is less than one-fourth of 1% (. Irs forms 2009 0025) of the stated redemption price of the loan at maturity multiplied by the number of full years from the date of original issue to maturity (the term of the loan). Irs forms 2009   If the OID is de minimis, you can choose one of the following ways to figure the amount you can deduct each year. Irs forms 2009 On a constant-yield basis over the term of the loan. Irs forms 2009 On a straight-line basis over the term of the loan. Irs forms 2009 In proportion to stated interest payments. Irs forms 2009 In its entirety at maturity of the loan. Irs forms 2009 You make this choice by deducting the OID in a manner consistent with the method chosen on your timely filed tax return for the tax year in which the loan is issued. Irs forms 2009 Example. Irs forms 2009 On January 1, 2013, you took out a $100,000 discounted loan and received $98,500 in proceeds. Irs forms 2009 The loan will mature on January 1, 2023 (a 10-year term), and the $100,000 principal is payable on that date. Irs forms 2009 Interest of $10,000 is payable on January 1 of each year, beginning January 1, 2014. Irs forms 2009 The $1,500 OID on the loan is de minimis because it is less than $2,500 ($100,000 × . Irs forms 2009 0025 × 10). Irs forms 2009 You choose to deduct the OID on a straight-line basis over the term of the loan. Irs forms 2009 Beginning in 2013, you can deduct $150 each year for 10 years. Irs forms 2009 Constant-yield method. Irs forms 2009   If the OID is not de minimis, you must use the constant-yield method to figure how much you can deduct each year. Irs forms 2009 You figure your deduction for the first year using the following steps. Irs forms 2009 Determine the issue price of the loan. Irs forms 2009 Generally, this equals the proceeds of the loan. Irs forms 2009 If you paid points on the loan (as discussed later), the issue price generally is the difference between the proceeds and the points. Irs forms 2009 Multiply the result in (1) by the yield to maturity. Irs forms 2009 Subtract any qualified stated interest payments from the result in (2). Irs forms 2009 This is the OID you can deduct in the first year. Irs forms 2009   To figure your deduction in any subsequent year, follow the above steps, except determine the adjusted issue price in step (1). Irs forms 2009 To get the adjusted issue price, add to the issue price any OID previously deducted. Irs forms 2009 Then follow steps (2) and (3) above. Irs forms 2009   The yield to maturity is generally shown in the literature you receive from your lender. Irs forms 2009 If you do not have this information, consult your lender or tax advisor. Irs forms 2009 In general, the yield to maturity is the discount rate that, when used in computing the present value of all principal and interest payments, produces an amount equal to the principal amount of the loan. Irs forms 2009 Example. Irs forms 2009 The facts are the same as in the previous example, except that you deduct the OID on a constant yield basis over the term of the loan. Irs forms 2009 The yield to maturity on your loan is 10. Irs forms 2009 2467%, compounded annually. Irs forms 2009 For 2013, you can deduct $93 [($98,500 × . Irs forms 2009 102467) − $10,000]. Irs forms 2009 For 2014, you can deduct $103 [($98,593 × . Irs forms 2009 102467) − $10,000]. Irs forms 2009 Loan or mortgage ends. Irs forms 2009   If your loan or mortgage ends, you may be able to deduct any remaining OID in the tax year in which the loan or mortgage ends. Irs forms 2009 A loan or mortgage may end due to a refinancing, prepayment, foreclosure, or similar event. Irs forms 2009 If you refinance with the original lender, you generally cannot deduct the remaining OID in the year in which the refinancing occurs, but you may be able to deduct it over the term of the new mortgage or loan. Irs forms 2009 See Interest paid with funds borrowed from original lender under Interest You Cannot Deduct, later. Irs forms 2009 Points. Irs forms 2009   The term “points” is used to describe certain charges paid, or treated as paid, by a borrower to obtain a loan or a mortgage. Irs forms 2009 These charges are also called loan origination fees, maximum loan charges, discount points, or premium charges. Irs forms 2009 If any of these charges (points) are solely for the use of money, they are interest. Irs forms 2009   Because points are prepaid interest, you generally cannot deduct the full amount in the year paid. Irs forms 2009 However, you can choose to fully deduct points in the year paid if you meet certain tests. Irs forms 2009 For exceptions to the general rule, see Publication 936. Irs forms 2009 The points reduce the issue price of the loan and result in original issue discount (OID), deductible as explained in the preceding discussion. Irs forms 2009 Partial payments on a nontax debt. Irs forms 2009   If you make partial payments on a debt (other than a debt owed the IRS), the payments are applied, in general, first to interest and any remainder to principal. Irs forms 2009 You can deduct only the interest. Irs forms 2009 This rule does not apply when it can be inferred that the borrower and lender understood that a different allocation of the payments would be made. Irs forms 2009 Installment purchase. Irs forms 2009   If you make an installment purchase of business property, the contract between you and the seller generally provides for the payment of interest. Irs forms 2009 If no interest or a low rate of interest is charged under the contract, a portion of the stated principal amount payable under the contract may be recharacterized as interest (unstated interest). Irs forms 2009 The amount recharacterized as interest reduces your basis in the property and increases your interest expense. Irs forms 2009 For more information on installment sales and unstated interest, see Publication 537. Irs forms 2009 Interest You Cannot Deduct Certain interest payments cannot be deducted. Irs forms 2009 In addition, certain other expenses that may seem to be interest but are not, cannot be deducted as interest. Irs forms 2009 You cannot currently deduct interest that must be capitalized, and you generally cannot deduct personal interest. Irs forms 2009 Interest paid with funds borrowed from original lender. Irs forms 2009   If you use the cash method of accounting, you cannot deduct interest you pay with funds borrowed from the original lender through a second loan, an advance, or any other arrangement similar to a loan. Irs forms 2009 You can deduct the interest expense once you start making payments on the new loan. Irs forms 2009   When you make a payment on the new loan, you first apply the payment to interest and then to the principal. Irs forms 2009 All amounts you apply to the interest on the first loan are deductible, along with any interest you pay on the second loan, subject to any limits that apply. Irs forms 2009 Capitalized interest. Irs forms 2009   You cannot currently deduct interest you are required to capitalize under the uniform capitalization rules. Irs forms 2009 See Capitalization of Interest, later. Irs forms 2009 In addition, if you buy property and pay interest owed by the seller (for example, by assuming the debt and any interest accrued on the property), you cannot deduct the interest. Irs forms 2009 Add this interest to the basis of the property. Irs forms 2009 Commitment fees or standby charges. Irs forms 2009   Fees you incur to have business funds available on a standby basis, but not for the actual use of the funds, are not deductible as interest payments. Irs forms 2009 You may be able to deduct them as business expenses. Irs forms 2009   If the funds are for inventory or certain property used in your business, the fees are indirect costs and you generally must capitalize them under the uniform capitalization rules. Irs forms 2009 See Capitalization of Interest, later. Irs forms 2009 Interest on income tax. Irs forms 2009   Interest charged on income tax assessed on your individual income tax return is not a business deduction even though the tax due is related to income from your trade or business. Irs forms 2009 Treat this interest as a business deduction only in figuring a net operating loss deduction. Irs forms 2009 Penalties. Irs forms 2009   Penalties on underpaid deficiencies and underpaid estimated tax are not interest. Irs forms 2009 You cannot deduct them. Irs forms 2009 Generally, you cannot deduct any fines or penalties. Irs forms 2009 Interest on loans with respect to life insurance policies. Irs forms 2009   You generally cannot deduct interest on a debt incurred with respect to any life insurance, annuity, or endowment contract that covers any individual unless that individual is a key person. Irs forms 2009   If the policy or contract covers a key person, you can deduct the interest on up to $50,000 of debt for that person. Irs forms 2009 However, the deduction for any month cannot be more than the interest figured using Moody's Composite Yield on Seasoned Corporate Bonds (formerly known as Moody's Corporate Bond Yield Average-Monthly Average Corporates) (Moody's rate) for that month. Irs forms 2009 Who is a key person?   A key person is an officer or 20% owner. Irs forms 2009 However, the number of individuals you can treat as key persons is limited to the greater of the following. Irs forms 2009 Five individuals. Irs forms 2009 The lesser of 5% of the total officers and employees of the company or 20 individuals. Irs forms 2009 Exceptions for pre-June 1997 contracts. Irs forms 2009   You can generally deduct the interest if the contract was issued before June 9, 1997, and the covered individual is someone other than an employee, officer, or someone financially interested in your business. Irs forms 2009 If the contract was purchased before June 21, 1986, you can generally deduct the interest no matter who is covered by the contract. Irs forms 2009 Interest allocated to unborrowed policy cash value. Irs forms 2009   Corporations and partnerships generally cannot deduct any interest expense allocable to unborrowed cash values of life insurance, annuity, or endowment contracts. Irs forms 2009 This rule applies to contracts issued after June 8, 1997, that cover someone other than an officer, director, employee, or 20% owner. Irs forms 2009 For more information, see section 264(f) of the Internal Revenue Code. Irs forms 2009 Capitalization of Interest Under the uniform capitalization rules, you generally must capitalize interest on debt equal to your expenditures to produce real property or certain tangible personal property. Irs forms 2009 The property must be produced by you for use in your trade or business or for sale to customers. Irs forms 2009 You cannot capitalize interest related to property that you acquire in any other manner. Irs forms 2009 Interest you paid or incurred during the production period must be capitalized if the property produced is designated property. Irs forms 2009 Designated property is any of the following. Irs forms 2009 Real property. Irs forms 2009 Tangible personal property with a class life of 20 years or more. Irs forms 2009 Tangible personal property with an estimated production period of more than 2 years. Irs forms 2009 Tangible personal property with an estimated production period of more than 1 year if the estimated cost of production is more than $1 million. Irs forms 2009 Property you produce. Irs forms 2009   You produce property if you construct, build, install, manufacture, develop, improve, create, raise, or grow it. Irs forms 2009 Treat property produced for you under a contract as produced by you up to the amount you pay or incur for the property. Irs forms 2009 Carrying charges. Irs forms 2009   Carrying charges include taxes you pay to carry or develop real estate or to carry, transport, or install personal property. Irs forms 2009 You can choose to capitalize carrying charges not subject to the uniform capitalization rules if they are otherwise deductible. Irs forms 2009 For more information, see chapter 7. Irs forms 2009 Capitalized interest. Irs forms 2009   Treat capitalized interest as a cost of the property produced. Irs forms 2009 You recover your interest when you sell or use the property. Irs forms 2009 If the property is inventory, recover capitalized interest through cost of goods sold. Irs forms 2009 If the property is used in your trade or business, recover capitalized interest through an adjustment to basis, depreciation, amortization, or other method. Irs forms 2009 Partnerships and S corporations. Irs forms 2009   The interest capitalization rules are applied first at the partnership or S corporation level. Irs forms 2009 The rules are then applied at the partners' or shareholders' level to the extent the partnership or S corporation has insufficient debt to support the production or construction costs. Irs forms 2009   If you are a partner or a shareholder, you may have to capitalize interest you incur during the tax year for the production costs of the partnership or S corporation. Irs forms 2009 You may also have to capitalize interest incurred by the partnership or S corporation for your own production costs. Irs forms 2009 To properly capitalize interest under these rules, you must be given the required information in an attachment to the Schedule K-1 you receive from the partnership or S corporation. Irs forms 2009 Additional information. Irs forms 2009   The procedures for applying the uniform capitalization rules are beyond the scope of this publication. Irs forms 2009 For more information, see sections 1. Irs forms 2009 263A-8 through 1. Irs forms 2009 263A-15 of the regulations and Notice 88-99. Irs forms 2009 Notice 88-99 is in Cumulative Bulletin 1988-2. Irs forms 2009 When To Deduct Interest If the uniform capitalization rules, discussed under Capitalization of Interest, earlier, do not apply to you, deduct interest as follows. Irs forms 2009 Cash method. Irs forms 2009   Under the cash method, you can generally deduct only the interest you actually paid during the tax year. Irs forms 2009 You cannot deduct a promissory note you gave as payment because it is a promise to pay and not an actual payment. Irs forms 2009 Prepaid interest. Irs forms 2009   You generally cannot deduct any interest paid before the year it is due. Irs forms 2009 Interest paid in advance can be deducted only in the tax year in which it is due. Irs forms 2009 Discounted loan. Irs forms 2009   If interest or a discount is subtracted from your loan proceeds, it is not a payment of interest and you cannot deduct it when you get the loan. Irs forms 2009 For more information, see Original issue discount (OID) under Interest You Can Deduct, earlier. Irs forms 2009 Refunds of interest. Irs forms 2009   If you pay interest and then receive a refund in the same tax year of any part of the interest, reduce your interest deduction by the refund. Irs forms 2009 If you receive the refund in a later tax year, include the refund in your income to the extent the deduction for the interest reduced your tax. Irs forms 2009 Accrual method. Irs forms 2009   Under an accrual method, you can deduct only interest that has accrued during the tax year. Irs forms 2009 Prepaid interest. Irs forms 2009   See Prepaid interest, earlier. Irs forms 2009 Discounted loan. Irs forms 2009   See Discounted loan, earlier. Irs forms 2009 Tax deficiency. Irs forms 2009   If you contest a federal income tax deficiency, interest does not accrue until the tax year the final determination of liability is made. Irs forms 2009 If you do not contest the deficiency, then the interest accrues in the year the tax was asserted and agreed to by you. Irs forms 2009   However, if you contest but pay the proposed tax deficiency and interest, and you do not designate the payment as a cash bond, then the interest is deductible in the year paid. Irs forms 2009 Related person. Irs forms 2009   If you use an accrual method, you cannot deduct interest owed to a related person who uses the cash method until payment is made and the interest is includible in the gross income of that person. Irs forms 2009 The relationship is determined as of the end of the tax year for which the interest would otherwise be deductible. Irs forms 2009 See section 267 of the Internal Revenue Code for more information. Irs forms 2009 Below-Market Loans If you receive a below-market gift or demand loan and use the proceeds in your trade or business, you may be able to deduct the forgone interest. Irs forms 2009 See Treatment of gift and demand loans, later, in this discussion. Irs forms 2009 A below-market loan is a loan on which no interest is charged or on which interest is charged at a rate below the applicable federal rate. Irs forms 2009 A gift or demand loan that is a below-market loan generally is considered an arm's-length transaction in which you, the borrower, are considered as having received both the following. Irs forms 2009 A loan in exchange for a note that requires the payment of interest at the applicable federal rate. Irs forms 2009 An additional payment in an amount equal to the forgone interest. Irs forms 2009 The additional payment is treated as a gift, dividend, contribution to capital, payment of compensation, or other payment, depending on the substance of the transaction. Irs forms 2009 Forgone interest. Irs forms 2009   For any period, forgone interest is The interest that would be payable for that period if interest accrued on the loan at the applicable federal rate and was payable annually on December 31, minus Any interest actually payable on the loan for the period. Irs forms 2009 Applicable federal rates are published by the IRS each month in the Internal Revenue Bulletin. Irs forms 2009 Internal Revenue Bulletins are available on the IRS web site at www. Irs forms 2009 irs. Irs forms 2009 gov/irb. Irs forms 2009 You can also contact an IRS office to get these rates. Irs forms 2009 Loans subject to the rules. Irs forms 2009   The rules for below-market loans apply to the following. Irs forms 2009 Gift loans (below-market loans where the forgone interest is in the nature of a gift). Irs forms 2009 Compensation-related loans (below-market loans between an employer and an employee or between an independent contractor and a person for whom the contractor provides services). Irs forms 2009 Corporation-shareholder loans. Irs forms 2009 Tax avoidance loans (below-market loans where the avoidance of federal tax is one of the main purposes of the interest arrangement). Irs forms 2009 Loans to qualified continuing care facilities under a continuing care contract (made after October 11, 1985). Irs forms 2009   Except as noted in (5) above, these rules apply to demand loans (loans payable in full at any time upon the lender's demand) outstanding after June 6, 1984, and to term loans (loans that are not demand loans) made after that date. Irs forms 2009 Treatment of gift and demand loans. Irs forms 2009   If you receive a below-market gift loan or demand loan, you are treated as receiving an additional payment (as a gift, dividend, etc. Irs forms 2009 ) equal to the forgone interest on the loan. Irs forms 2009 You are then treated as transferring this amount back to the lender as interest. Irs forms 2009 These transfers are considered to occur annually, generally on December 31. Irs forms 2009 If you use the loan proceeds in your trade or business, you can deduct the forgone interest each year as a business interest expense. Irs forms 2009 The lender must report it as interest income. Irs forms 2009 Limit on forgone interest for gift loans of $100,000 or less. Irs forms 2009   For gift loans between individuals, forgone interest treated as transferred back to the lender is limited to the borrower's net investment income for the year. Irs forms 2009 This limit applies if the outstanding loans between the lender and borrower total $100,000 or less. Irs forms 2009 If the borrower's net investment income is $1,000 or less, it is treated as zero. Irs forms 2009 This limit does not apply to a loan if the avoidance of any federal tax is one of the main purposes of the interest arrangement. Irs forms 2009 Treatment of term loans. Irs forms 2009   If you receive a below-market term loan other than a gift or demand loan, you are treated as receiving an additional cash payment (as a dividend, etc. Irs forms 2009 ) on the date the loan is made. Irs forms 2009 This payment is equal to the loan amount minus the present value, at the applicable federal rate, of all payments due under the loan. Irs forms 2009 The same amount is treated as original issue discount on the loan. Irs forms 2009 See Original issue discount (OID) under Interest You Can Deduct, earlier. Irs forms 2009 Exceptions for loans of $10,000 or less. Irs forms 2009   The rules for below-market loans do not apply to any day on which the total outstanding loans between the borrower and lender is $10,000 or less. Irs forms 2009 This exception applies only to the following. Irs forms 2009 Gift loans between individuals if the loan is not directly used to buy or carry income-producing assets. Irs forms 2009 Compensation-related loans or corporation-shareholder loans if the avoidance of any federal tax is not a principal purpose of the interest arrangement. Irs forms 2009 This exception does not apply to a term loan described in (2) above that was previously subject to the below-market loan rules. Irs forms 2009 Those rules will continue to apply even if the outstanding balance is reduced to $10,000 or less. Irs forms 2009 Exceptions for loans without significant tax effect. Irs forms 2009   The following loans are specifically exempted from the rules for below-market loans because their interest arrangements do not have a significant effect on the federal tax liability of the borrower or the lender.

Irs forms 2009 Any other loan if the taxpayer can show that the interest arrangement has no significant effect on the federal tax liability of the lender or the borrower. Irs forms 2009 Whether an interest arrangement has a significant effect on the federal tax liability of the lender or the borrower will be determined by all the facts and circumstances. Irs forms 2009 Consider all the following factors. Irs forms 2009 Whether items of income and deduction generated by the loan offset each other. Irs forms 2009 The amount of the items. Irs forms 2009 The cost of complying with the below-market loan provisions if they were to apply. Irs forms 2009 Any reasons, other than taxes, for structuring the transaction as a below-market loan. Irs forms 2009 Exception for loans to qualified continuing care facilities. Irs forms 2009   The below-market interest rules do not apply to a loan owed by a qualified continuing care facility under a continuing care contract if the lender or lender's spouse is age 62 or older by the end of the calendar year. Irs forms 2009 A qualified continuing care facility is one or more facilities (excluding nursing homes) meeting the requirements listed below. Irs forms 2009 Designed to provide services under continuing care contracts (defined below). Irs forms 2009 Includes an independent living unit, and either an assisted living or nursing facility, or both.

Irs forms 2009 The individual or individual's spouse will be provided with assisted living or nursing care available in the continuing care facility, as required for the health of the individual or the individual's spouse. Irs forms 2009 For more information, see section 7872(h) of the Internal Revenue Code. Irs forms 2009 Sale or exchange of property. Irs forms 2009   Different rules generally apply to a loan connected with the sale or exchange of property. Irs forms 2009 If the loan does not provide adequate stated interest, part of the principal payment may be considered interest. Irs forms 2009 However, there are exceptions that may require you to apply the below-market interest rate rules to these loans. Irs forms 2009 See Unstated Interest and Original Issue Discount (OID) in Publication 537. Irs forms 2009 More information. Irs forms 2009   For more information on below-market loans, see section 7872 of the Internal Revenue Code and section 1. Irs forms 2009 7872-5 of the regulations.

  • Mass Marketing Fraud
    A few decades ago, mass marketing fraud - the kind that exploits mass communication techniques like bulk mail or telemarketing - was relatively low-tech and mostly a regional crime problem targeting victims nearby.
