Irs tax forms Definitions The following definitions are used throughout this publication. Irs tax forms Kansas Disaster Area The Kansas disaster area covers the Kansas counties of Barton, Clay, Cloud, Comanche, Dickinson, Edwards, Ellsworth, Kiowa, Leavenworth, Lyon, McPherson, Osage, Osborne, Ottawa, Phillips, Pottawatomie, Pratt, Reno, Rice, Riley, Saline, Shawnee, Smith, and Stafford. Irs tax forms Storms and Tornadoes The term “storms and tornadoes” as used in this publication, refers to the storms and tornadoes that began on May 4, 2007, and affected the Kansas disaster area (defined above). Irs tax forms Casualty and Theft Losses The following paragraphs explain changes to casualty and theft losses that occurred in the Kansas disaster area. Irs tax forms Limits on personal casualty or theft losses in the Kansas disaster area. Irs tax forms   Losses of personal use property that arose in the Kansas disaster area after May 3, 2007, are not subject to the $100 or 10% of adjusted gross income limits. Irs tax forms Qualifying losses include losses from casualties and thefts that arose in the disaster area and that were attributable to the storms and tornadoes. Irs tax forms When to deduct the loss. Irs tax forms   Casualty and theft losses are generally deductible only in the year the casualty occurred or the theft was discovered. Irs tax forms However, the Kansas disaster area is a Presidentially declared disaster. Irs tax forms Therefore, you could have elected to deduct losses from these storms and tornadoes on your tax return for the previous year. Irs tax forms The deadline for making this election has expired. Irs tax forms   The following special instructions explain how to complete your forms if you deduct the loss in 2007 or elected to deduct the loss in 2006. Irs tax forms Special instructions for individuals who file Form 4684 to claim a Kansas disaster area casualty or theft loss for 2007 or are amending their 2006 return. Irs tax forms   Individuals filing or amending their 2007 tax return or amending their 2006 tax return for casualty or theft losses that were attributable to the storms and tornadoes should enter “Kansas Disaster Area” at the top of Form 1040 or 1040X. Irs tax forms They must also complete and attach the 2006 version of Form 4684 for either year and enter “Kansas Disaster Area” on the top and on the dotted line next to line 11 and enter -0- on line 11. Irs tax forms Individuals filing or amending their 2007 tax return should cross out “2006” and enter “2007” at the top of Form 4684. Irs tax forms They must also enter the amount from line 21 of that form on line 20 of Schedule A (Form 1040). Irs tax forms Replacement Period for Nonrecognition of Gain Generally, an involuntary conversion occurs when property is damaged, destroyed, stolen, seized, requisitioned, or condemned, and you receive other property or money in payment, such as insurance or a condemnation award. Irs tax forms Generally, you do not have to report a gain (if any) if you replace the property within 2 years (4 years for a main home in a Presidentially declared disaster area). Irs tax forms However, for property that was involuntarily converted after May 3, 2007, as a result of the storms and tornadoes, a 5-year replacement period applies if substantially all of the use of the replacement property is in the Kansas disaster area. Irs tax forms For more information, see the Instructions for Form 4684. Irs tax forms Net Operating Losses Qualified recovery assistance loss. Irs tax forms   Generally, you can carry a net operating loss (NOL) back to the 2 tax years before the NOL year. Irs tax forms However, the portion of an NOL that is a qualified recovery assistance loss can be carried back to the 5 tax years before the NOL year. Irs tax forms In addition, the 90% limit on the alternative tax NOL deduction (ATNOLD) does not apply to such portion of the ATNOLD. Irs tax forms   A qualified recovery assistance loss is the smaller of: The excess of the NOL for the year over the specified liability loss for the year to which a 10-year carryback applies, or The total of the following deductions (to the extent they are taken into account in computing the NOL for the tax year): Qualified recovery assistance casualty loss (as defined below), Moving expenses paid or incurred after May 3, 2007, and before January 1, 2010, for the employment of an individual whose main home was in the Kansas disaster area before May 4, 2007, who was unable to remain in that home because of the storms and tornadoes, and whose main job location (after the move) is in the Kansas disaster area, Temporary housing expenses paid or incurred after May 3, 2007, and before January 1, 2010, to house employees of the taxpayer whose main job location is in the Kansas disaster area, Depreciation or amortization allowable for any qualified recovery assistance property (even if you elected not to claim the special recovery assistance depreciation allowance for such property) for the year placed in service, and Repair expenses (including expenses for the removal of debris) paid or incurred after May 3, 2007, and before January 1, 2010, for any damage from the storms and tornadoes to property located in the Kansas disaster area. Irs tax forms Qualified recovery assistance casualty loss. Irs tax forms   A qualified recovery assistance casualty loss is any deductible section 1231 loss of property located in the Kansas disaster area if the loss was caused by the storms and tornadoes. Irs tax forms For this purpose, the amount of the loss is reduced by any recognized gain from an involuntary conversion caused by the storms and tornadoes of property located in the Kansas disaster area. Irs tax forms Any such loss taken into account in figuring your qualified recovery assistance loss is not eligible for the election to be treated as having occurred in the previous tax year. Irs tax forms Amended return. Irs tax forms   If you have already filed your 2007 tax return and then carried your NOL back 2 years, you may file an amended return to carry back for 5 years your NOL attributable to a qualified recovery assistance loss. Irs tax forms More information. Irs tax forms    For more information on NOLs, see Publication 536. Irs tax forms IRAs and Other Retirement Plans New rules provide for tax-favored withdrawals, repayments, and loans from certain retirement plans for individuals who suffered economic losses as a result of the storms and tornadoes. Irs tax forms Definitions Qualified recovery assistance distribution. Irs tax forms   Except as provided below, a qualified recovery assistance distribution is any distribution you received and designated as such from an eligible retirement plan if all of the following apply. Irs tax forms The distribution was made after May 3, 2007, and before January 1, 2009. Irs tax forms Your main home was located in the Kansas disaster area on May 4, 2007. Irs tax forms You sustained an economic loss because of the storms and tornadoes. Irs tax forms Examples of an economic loss include, but are not limited to: Loss, damage to, or destruction of real or personal property from fire, flooding, looting, vandalism, theft, wind, or other cause; Loss related to displacement from your home; or Loss of livelihood due to temporary or permanent layoffs. Irs tax forms   If (1) through (3) above apply, you can generally designate any distribution (including periodic payments and required minimum distributions) from an eligible retirement plan as a qualified recovery assistance distribution, regardless of whether the distribution was made on account of the storms and tornadoes. Irs tax forms Qualified recovery assistance distributions are permitted without regard to your need or the actual amount of your economic loss. Irs tax forms   The total of your qualified recovery assistance distributions from all plans is limited to $100,000. Irs tax forms If you have distributions in excess of $100,000 from more than one type of plan, such as a 401(k) plan and an IRA, you may allocate the $100,000 limit among the plans any way you choose. Irs tax forms   A reduction or offset after May 3, 2007, of your account balance in an eligible retirement plan in order to repay a loan can also be designated as a qualified recovery assistance distribution. Irs tax forms Eligible retirement plan. Irs tax forms   An eligible retirement plan can be any of the following. Irs tax forms A qualified pension, profit-sharing, or stock bonus plan (including a 401(k) plan). Irs tax forms A qualified annuity plan. Irs tax forms A tax-sheltered annuity contract. Irs tax forms A governmental section 457 deferred compensation plan. Irs tax forms A traditional, SEP, SIMPLE, or Roth IRA. Irs tax forms Main home. Irs tax forms   Generally, your main home is the home where you live most of the time. Irs tax forms A temporary absence due to special circumstances, such as illness, education, business, military service, evacuation, or vacation, will not change your main home. Irs tax forms Taxation of Qualified Recovery Assistance Distributions Qualified recovery assistance distributions are included in income in equal amounts over three years. Irs tax forms However, if you elect, you can include the entire distribution in your income in the year it was received. Irs tax forms Qualified recovery assistance distributions are not subject to the additional 10% tax (or the additional 25% tax for certain distributions from SIMPLE IRAs) on early distributions from qualified retirement plans (including IRAs). Irs tax forms However, any distributions you receive in excess of the $100,000 qualified recovery assistance distribution limit may be subject to the additional tax on early distributions. Irs tax forms For more information, see How To Report Qualified Recovery Assistance Distributions on page 4. Irs tax forms Repayment of Qualified Recovery Assistance Distributions If you choose, you generally can repay any portion of a qualified recovery assistance distribution that is eligible for tax-free rollover treatment to an eligible retirement plan. Irs tax forms Also, you can repay a qualified recovery assistance distribution made on account of a hardship from a retirement plan. Irs tax forms However, see Exceptions below for qualified recovery assistance distributions you cannot repay. Irs tax forms You have three years from the day after the date you received the distribution to make a repayment. Irs tax forms Amounts that are repaid are treated as a qualified rollover and are not included in income. Irs tax forms Also, for purposes of the one-rollover-per-year limitation for IRAs, a repayment to an IRA is not considered a qualified rollover. Irs tax forms See Form 8915 for more information on how to report repayments. Irs tax forms Exceptions. Irs tax forms   You cannot repay the following types of distributions. Irs tax forms Qualified recovery assistance distributions received as a beneficiary (other than a surviving spouse). Irs tax forms Required minimum distributions.

Irs tax forms Margaret has not filed her 2007 return yet but would like to designate the $45,000 in distributions from her retirement plans as qualified recovery assistance distributions. Irs tax forms Since the distributions occurred in 2007, Margaret would modify and complete the 2005 Form 8915 as discussed on page 4. Irs tax forms Margaret would also need to complete Form 8606 since her distribution from her traditional IRA has nondeductible contributions from previous years. Irs tax forms   In addition to the $15,000 qualified recovery assistance distribution on July 31, 2007, Margaret received an additional distribution of $15,000 from her traditional IRA on October 31, 2007, that she did not designate as a qualified recovery assistance distribution. Irs tax forms Because Margaret has a qualified recovery assistance distribution as well as a distribution not so designated, Margaret must allocate the amount on Form 8606, line 15 to both distributions, as discussed earlier. Irs tax forms Margaret's qualified recovery assistance distributions are $13,125 ($26,250 × $15,000 ÷ $30,000).
