Irs tax forms A taxpayer and any trust in which the taxpayer (or his or her spouse) is a beneficiary unless the beneficiary's interest in the trust is a remote contingent interest; that is, the value of the interest computed actuarially is 5% or less of the value of the trust property. Irs tax forms An executor and a beneficiary of an estate unless the sale or exchange is in satisfaction of a pecuniary bequest (a bequest for a sum of money). Irs tax forms An employer (or any person related to the employer under rules (1), (2), or (3)) and a welfare benefit fund (within the meaning of section 419(e) of the Internal Revenue Code) that is controlled directly or indirectly by the employer (or any person related to the employer). Irs tax forms Controlled entity. Irs tax forms   A person's controlled entity is either of the following. Irs tax forms A corporation in which more than 50% of the value of all outstanding stock, or a partnership in which more than 50% of the capital interest or profits interest, is directly or indirectly owned by or for that person.

Irs tax forms Two S corporations, if the same persons own more than 50% in value of the outstanding stock of each corporation. Irs tax forms Two corporations, one of which is an S corporation, if the same persons own more than 50% in value of the outstanding stock of each corporation. Irs tax forms Controlled partnership transaction. Irs tax forms   A gain recognized in a controlled partnership transaction may be ordinary income. Irs tax forms The gain is ordinary income if it results from the sale or exchange of property that, in the hands of the party who receives it, is a noncapital asset such as trade accounts receivable, inventory, stock in trade, or depreciable or real property used in a trade or business. Irs tax forms   A controlled partnership transaction is a transaction directly or indirectly between either of the following pairs of entities. Irs tax forms A partnership and a person who directly or indirectly owns more than 50% of the capital interest or profits interest in the partnership. Irs tax forms Two partnerships, if the same persons directly or indirectly own more than 50% of the capital interests or profits interests in both partnerships. Irs tax forms Determining ownership. Irs tax forms   In the transactions under Depreciable property transaction and Controlled partnership transaction, earlier, use the following rules to determine the ownership of stock or a partnership interest. Irs tax forms Stock or a partnership interest directly or indirectly owned by or for a corporation, partnership, estate, or trust is considered owned proportionately by or for its shareholders, partners, or beneficiaries. Irs tax forms (However, for a partnership interest owned by or for a C corporation, this applies only to shareholders who directly or indirectly own 5% or more in value of the stock of the corporation. Irs tax forms ) An individual is considered as owning the stock or partnership interest directly or indirectly owned by or for his or her family. Irs tax forms Family includes only brothers, sisters, half-brothers, half-sisters, spouse, ancestors, and lineal descendants. Irs tax forms For purposes of applying (1) or (2), above, stock or a partnership interest constructively owned by a person under (1) is treated as actually owned by that person. Irs tax forms But stock or a partnership interest constructively owned by an individual under (2) is not treated as owned by the individual for reapplying (2) to make another person the constructive owner of that stock or partnership interest. Irs tax forms Nondeductible Loss A loss on the sale or exchange of property between related persons is not deductible. Irs tax forms This applies to both direct and indirect transactions, but not to distributions of property from a corporation in a complete liquidation. Irs tax forms For the list of related persons, see Related persons next. Irs tax forms If a sale or exchange is between any of these related persons and involves the lump-sum sale of a number of blocks of stock or pieces of property, the gain or loss must be figured separately for each block of stock or piece of property. Irs tax forms The gain on each item is taxable. Irs tax forms The loss on any item is nondeductible. Irs tax forms Gains from the sales of any of these items may not be offset by losses on the sales of any of the other items. Irs tax forms Related persons. Irs tax forms   The following is a list of related persons. Irs tax forms Members of a family, including only brothers, sisters, half-brothers, half-sisters, spouse, ancestors (parents, grandparents, etc. Irs tax forms ), and lineal descendants (children, grandchildren, etc. Irs tax forms ). Irs tax forms An individual and a corporation if the individual directly or indirectly owns more than 50% in value of the outstanding stock of the corporation. Irs tax forms Two corporations that are members of the same controlled group as defined in section 267(f) of the Internal Revenue Code. Irs tax forms A trust fiduciary and a corporation if the trust or the grantor of the trust directly or indirectly owns more than 50% in value of the outstanding stock of the corporation. Irs tax forms A grantor and fiduciary, and the fiduciary and beneficiary, of any trust. Irs tax forms Fiduciaries of two different trusts, and the fiduciary and beneficiary of two different trusts, if the same person is the grantor of both trusts. Irs tax forms A tax-exempt educational or charitable organization and a person who directly or indirectly controls the organization, or a member of that person's family. Irs tax forms A corporation and a partnership if the same persons own more than 50% in value of the outstanding stock of the corporation and more than 50% of the capital interest or profits interest in the partnership. Irs tax forms Two S corporations if the same persons own more than 50% in value of the outstanding stock of each corporation. Irs tax forms Two corporations, one of which is an S corporation, if the same persons own more than 50% in value of the outstanding stock of each corporation. Irs tax forms An executor and a beneficiary of an estate unless the sale or exchange is in satisfaction of a pecuniary bequest. Irs tax forms Two partnerships if the same persons directly or indirectly own more than 50% of the capital interests or profits interests in both partnerships. Irs tax forms A person and a partnership if the person directly or indirectly owns more than 50% of the capital interest or profits interest in the partnership. Irs tax forms Partnership interests. Irs tax forms   The nondeductible loss rule does not apply to a sale or exchange of an interest in the partnership between the related persons described in (12) or (13) above. Irs tax forms Controlled groups. Irs tax forms   Losses on transactions between members of the same controlled group described in (3) earlier are deferred rather than denied. Irs tax forms   For more information, see section 267(f) of the Internal Revenue Code. Irs tax forms Ownership of stock or partnership interests. Irs tax forms   In determining whether an individual directly or indirectly owns any of the outstanding stock of a corporation or an interest in a partnership for a loss on a sale or exchange, the following rules apply. Irs tax forms Stock or a partnership interest directly or indirectly owned by or for a corporation, partnership, estate, or trust is considered owned proportionately by or for its shareholders, partners, or beneficiaries. Irs tax forms (However, for a partnership interest owned by or for a C corporation, this applies only to shareholders who directly or indirectly own 5% or more in value of the stock of the corporation. Irs tax forms ) An individual is considered as owning the stock or partnership interest directly or indirectly owned by or for his or her family. Irs tax forms Family includes only brothers, sisters, half-brothers, half-sisters, spouse, ancestors, and lineal descendants. Irs tax forms An individual owning (other than by applying (2)) any stock in a corporation is considered to own the stock directly or indirectly owned by or for his or her partner. Irs tax forms For purposes of applying (1), (2), or (3), stock or a partnership interest constructively owned by a person under (1) is treated as actually owned by that person. Irs tax forms But stock or a partnership interest constructively owned by an individual under (2) or (3) is not treated as owned by the individual for reapplying either (2) or (3) to make another person the constructive owner of that stock or partnership interest. Irs tax forms Indirect transactions. Irs tax forms   You cannot deduct your loss on the sale of stock through your broker if under a prearranged plan a related person or entity buys the same stock you had owned. Irs tax forms This does not apply to a cross-trade between related parties through an exchange that is purely coincidental and is not prearranged. Irs tax forms Property received from a related person. Irs tax forms   If, in a purchase or exchange, you received property from a related person who had a loss that was not allowable and you later sell or exchange the property at a gain, you recognize the gain only to the extent it is more than the loss previously disallowed to the related person. Irs tax forms This rule applies only to the original transferee. Irs tax forms Example 1. Irs tax forms Your brother sold stock to you for $7,600. Irs tax forms His cost basis was $10,000. Irs tax forms His loss of $2,400 was not deductible. Irs tax forms You later sell the same stock to an unrelated party for $10,500, realizing a gain of $2,900 ($10,500 − $7,600). Irs tax forms Your recognized gain is only $500, the gain that is more than the $2,400 loss not allowed to your brother. Irs tax forms Example 2. Irs tax forms Assume the same facts as in Example 1, except that you sell the stock for $6,900 instead of $10,500. Irs tax forms Your recognized loss is only $700 ($7,600 − $6,900). Irs tax forms You cannot deduct the loss not allowed to your brother. Irs tax forms Other Dispositions This section discusses rules for determining the treatment of gain or loss from various dispositions of property. Irs tax forms Sale of a Business The sale of a business usually is not a sale of one asset. Irs tax forms Instead, all the assets of the business are sold. Irs tax forms Generally, when this occurs, each asset is treated as being sold separately for determining the treatment of gain or loss. Irs tax forms A business usually has many assets. Irs tax forms When sold, these assets must be classified as capital assets, depreciable property used in the business, real property used in the business, or property held for sale to customers, such as inventory or stock in trade. Irs tax forms The gain or loss on each asset is figured separately. Irs tax forms The sale of capital assets results in capital gain or loss. Irs tax forms The sale of real property or depreciable property used in the business and held longer than 1 year results in gain or loss from a section 1231 transaction (discussed in chapter 3). Irs tax forms The sale of inventory results in ordinary income or loss. Irs tax forms Partnership interests. Irs tax forms   An interest in a partnership or joint venture is treated as a capital asset when sold. Irs tax forms The part of any gain or loss from unrealized receivables or inventory items will be treated as ordinary gain or loss. Irs tax forms For more information, see Disposition of Partner's Interest in Publication 541. Irs tax forms Corporation interests. Irs tax forms   Your interest in a corporation is represented by stock certificates. Irs tax forms When you sell these certificates, you usually realize capital gain or loss. Irs tax forms For information on the sale of stock, see chapter 4 in Publication 550. Irs tax forms Corporate liquidations. Irs tax forms   Corporate liquidations of property generally are treated as a sale or exchange. Irs tax forms Gain or loss generally is recognized by the corporation on a liquidating sale of its assets. Irs tax forms Gain or loss generally is recognized also on a liquidating distribution of assets as if the corporation sold the assets to the distributee at fair market value. Irs tax forms   In certain cases in which the distributee is a corporation in control of the distributing corporation, the distribution may not be taxable. Irs tax forms For more information, see section 332 of the Internal Revenue Code and the related regulations. Irs tax forms Allocation of consideration paid for a business. Irs tax forms   The sale of a trade or business for a lump sum is considered a sale of each individual asset rather than of a single asset. Irs tax forms Except for assets exchanged under any nontaxable exchange rules, both the buyer and seller of a business must use the residual method (explained later) to allocate the consideration to each business asset transferred. Irs tax forms This method determines gain or loss from the transfer of each asset and how much of the consideration is for goodwill and certain other intangible property. Irs tax forms It also determines the buyer's basis in the business assets. Irs tax forms Consideration. Irs tax forms   The buyer's consideration is the cost of the assets acquired. Irs tax forms The seller's consideration is the amount realized (money plus the fair market value of property received) from the sale of assets. Irs tax forms Residual method. Irs tax forms   The residual method must be used for any transfer of a group of assets that constitutes a trade or business and for which the buyer's basis is determined only by the amount paid for the assets. Irs tax forms This applies to both direct and indirect transfers, such as the sale of a business or the sale of a partnership interest in which the basis of the buyer's share of the partnership assets is adjusted for the amount paid under section 743(b) of the Internal Revenue Code. Irs tax forms Section 743(b) applies if a partnership has an election in effect under section 754 of the Internal Revenue Code. Irs tax forms   A group of assets constitutes a trade or business if either of the following applies. Irs tax forms Goodwill or going concern value could, under any circumstances, attach to them. Irs tax forms The use of the assets would constitute an active trade or business under section 355 of the Internal Revenue Code. Irs tax forms   The residual method provides for the consideration to be reduced first by the amount of Class I assets (defined below). Irs tax forms The consideration remaining after this reduction must be allocated among the various business assets in a certain order. Irs tax forms See Classes of assets next for the complete order. Irs tax forms Classes of assets. Irs tax forms   The following definitions are the classifications for deemed or actual asset acquisitions. Irs tax forms Allocate the consideration among the assets in the following order. Irs tax forms The amount allocated to an asset, other than a Class VII asset, cannot exceed its fair market value on the purchase date. Irs tax forms The amount you can allocate to an asset also is subject to any applicable limits under the Internal Revenue Code or general principles of tax law. Irs tax forms Class I assets are cash and general deposit accounts (including checking and savings accounts but excluding certificates of deposit). Irs tax forms Class II assets are certificates of deposit, U. Irs tax forms S. Irs tax forms Government securities, foreign currency, and actively traded personal property, including stock and securities. Irs tax forms Class III assets are accounts receivable, other debt instruments, and assets that you mark to market at least annually for federal income tax purposes. Irs tax forms However, see section 1. Irs tax forms 338-6(b)(2)(iii) of the regulations for exceptions that apply to debt instruments issued by persons related to a target corporation, contingent debt instruments, and debt instruments convertible into stock or other property. Irs tax forms Class IV assets are property of a kind that would properly be included in inventory if on hand at the end of the tax year or property held by the taxpayer primarily for sale to customers in the ordinary course of business. Irs tax forms Class V assets are all assets other than Class I, II, III, IV, VI, and VII assets. Irs tax forms    Note. Irs tax forms Furniture and fixtures, buildings, land, vehicles, and equipment, which constitute all or part of a trade or business are generally Class V assets. Irs tax forms Class VI assets are section 197 intangibles (other than goodwill and going concern value). Irs tax forms Class VII assets are goodwill and going concern value (whether the goodwill or going concern value qualifies as a section 197 intangible). Irs tax forms   If an asset described in one of the classifications described above can be included in more than one class, include it in the lower numbered class. Irs tax forms For example, if an asset is described in both Class II and Class IV, choose Class II. Irs tax forms Example. Irs tax forms The total paid in the sale of the assets of Company SKB is $21,000. Irs tax forms No cash or deposit accounts or similar accounts were sold. Irs tax forms The company's U. Irs tax forms S. Irs tax forms Government securities sold had a fair market value of $3,200. Irs tax forms The only other asset transferred (other than goodwill and going concern value) was inventory with a fair market value of $15,000. Irs tax forms Of the $21,000 paid for the assets of Company SKB, $3,200 is allocated to U. Irs tax forms S. Irs tax forms Government securities, $15,000 to inventory assets, and the remaining $2,800 to goodwill and going concern value. Irs tax forms Agreement. Irs tax forms   The buyer and seller may enter into a written agreement as to the allocation of any consideration or the fair market value of any of the assets. Irs tax forms This agreement is binding on both parties unless the IRS determines the amounts are not appropriate. Irs tax forms Reporting requirement. Irs tax forms   Both the buyer and seller involved in the sale of business assets must report to the IRS the allocation of the sales price among section 197 intangibles and the other business assets. Irs tax forms Use Form 8594, Asset Acquisition Statement Under Section 1060, to provide this information. Irs tax forms Generally, the buyer and seller should each attach Form 8594 to their federal income tax return for the year in which the sale occurred. Irs tax forms See the Instructions for Form 8594. Irs tax forms Dispositions of Intangible Property Intangible property is any personal property that has value but cannot be seen or touched. Irs tax forms It includes such items as patents, copyrights, and the goodwill value of a business. Irs tax forms Gain or loss on the sale or exchange of amortizable or depreciable intangible property held longer than 1 year (other than an amount recaptured as ordinary income) is a section 1231 gain or loss. Irs tax forms The treatment of section 1231 gain or loss and the recapture of amortization and depreciation as ordinary income are explained in chapter 3. Irs tax forms See chapter 8 of Publication 535, Business Expenses, for information on amortizable intangible property and chapter 1 of Publication 946, How To Depreciate Property, for information on intangible property that can and cannot be depreciated. Irs tax forms Gain or loss on dispositions of other intangible property is ordinary or capital depending on whether the property is a capital asset or a noncapital asset. Irs tax forms The following discussions explain special rules that apply to certain dispositions of intangible property. Irs tax forms Section 197 Intangibles Section 197 intangibles are certain intangible assets acquired after August 10, 1993 (after July 25, 1991, if chosen), and held in connection with the conduct of a trade or business or an activity entered into for profit whose costs are amortized over 15 years. Irs tax forms They include the following assets. Irs tax forms Goodwill. Irs tax forms Going concern value. Irs tax forms Workforce in place. Irs tax forms Business books and records, operating systems, and other information bases. Irs tax forms Patents, copyrights, formulas, processes, designs, patterns, know how, formats, and similar items. Irs tax forms Customer-based intangibles. Irs tax forms Supplier-based intangibles. Irs tax forms Licenses, permits, and other rights granted by a governmental unit. Irs tax forms Covenants not to compete entered into in connection with the acquisition of a business. Irs tax forms Franchises, trademarks, and trade names. Irs tax forms See chapter 8 of Publication 535 for a description of each intangible. Irs tax forms Dispositions. Irs tax forms   You cannot deduct a loss from the disposition or worthlessness of a section 197 intangible you acquired in the same transaction (or series of related transactions) as another section 197 intangible you still hold. Irs tax forms Instead, you must increase the adjusted basis of your retained section 197 intangible by the nondeductible loss. Irs tax forms If you retain more than one section 197 intangible, increase each intangible's adjusted basis. Irs tax forms Figure the increase by multiplying the nondeductible loss by a fraction, the numerator (top number) of which is the retained intangible's adjusted basis on the date of the loss and the denominator (bottom number) of which is the total adjusted basis of all retained intangibles on the date of the loss. Irs tax forms   In applying this rule, members of the same controlled group of corporations and commonly controlled businesses are treated as a single entity. Irs tax forms For example, a corporation cannot deduct a loss on the sale of a section 197 intangible if, after the sale, a member of the same controlled group retains other section 197 intangibles acquired in the same transaction as the intangible sold. Irs tax forms Covenant not to compete. Irs tax forms   A covenant not to compete (or similar arrangement) that is a section 197 intangible cannot be treated as disposed of or worthless before you have disposed of your entire interest in the trade or business for which the covenant was entered into. Irs tax forms Members of the same controlled group of corporations and commonly controlled businesses are treated as a single entity in determining whether a member has disposed of its entire interest in a trade or business. Irs tax forms Anti-churning rules. Irs tax forms   Anti-churning rules prevent a taxpayer from converting section 197 intangibles that do not qualify for amortization into property that would qualify for amortization. Irs tax forms However, these rules do not apply to part of the basis of property acquired by certain related persons if the transferor elects to do both the following. Irs tax forms Recognize gain on the transfer of the property. Irs tax forms Pay income tax on the gain at the highest tax rate. Irs tax forms   If the transferor is a partnership or S corporation, the partnership or S corporation (not the partners or shareholders) can make the election. Irs tax forms But each partner or shareholder must pay the tax on his or her share of gain. Irs tax forms   To make the election, you, as the transferor, must attach a statement containing certain information to your income tax return for the year of the transfer. Irs tax forms You must file the tax return by the due date (including extensions). Irs tax forms You must also notify the transferee of the election in writing by the due date of the return. Irs tax forms   If you timely filed your return without making the election, you can make the election by filing an amended return within 6 months after the due date of the return (excluding extensions). Irs tax forms Attach the statement to the amended return and write “Filed pursuant to section 301. Irs tax forms 9100-2” at the top of the statement. Irs tax forms File the amended return at the same address the original return was filed. Irs tax forms For more information about making the election, see Regulations section 1. Irs tax forms 197-2(h)(9). Irs tax forms For information about reporting the tax on your income tax return, see the Instructions for Form 4797. Irs tax forms Patents The transfer of a patent by an individual is treated as a sale or exchange of a capital asset held longer than 1 year. Irs tax forms This applies even if the payments for the patent are made periodically during the transferee's use or are contingent on the productivity, use, or disposition of the patent. Irs tax forms For information on the treatment of gain or loss on the transfer of capital assets, see chapter 4. Irs tax forms This treatment applies to your transfer of a patent if you meet all the following conditions. Irs tax forms You are the holder of the patent. Irs tax forms You transfer the patent other than by gift, inheritance, or devise. Irs tax forms You transfer all substantial rights to the patent or an undivided interest in all such rights. Irs tax forms You do not transfer the patent to a related person. Irs tax forms Holder. Irs tax forms   You are the holder of a patent if you are either of the following. Irs tax forms The individual whose effort created the patent property and who qualifies as the original and first inventor. Irs tax forms The individual who bought an interest in the patent from the inventor before the invention was tested and operated successfully under operating conditions and who is neither related to, nor the employer of, the inventor. Irs tax forms All substantial rights. Irs tax forms   All substantial rights to patent property are all rights that have value when they are transferred. Irs tax forms A security interest (such as a lien), or a reservation calling for forfeiture for nonperformance, is not treated as a substantial right for these rules and may be kept by you as the holder of the patent. Irs tax forms   All substantial rights to a patent are not transferred if any of the following apply to the transfer. Irs tax forms The rights are limited geographically within a country. Irs tax forms The rights are limited to a period less than the remaining life of the patent. Irs tax forms The rights are limited to fields of use within trades or industries and are less than all the rights that exist and have value at the time of the transfer. Irs tax forms The rights are less than all the claims or inventions covered by the patent that exist and have value at the time of the transfer. Irs tax forms Related persons. Irs tax forms   This tax treatment does not apply if the transfer is directly or indirectly between you and a related person as defined earlier in the list under Nondeductible Loss, with the following changes. Irs tax forms Members of your family include your spouse, ancestors, and lineal descendants, but not your brothers, sisters, half-brothers, or half-sisters. Irs tax forms Substitute “25% or more” ownership for “more than 50%. Irs tax forms ”   If you fit within the definition of a related person independent of family status, the brother-sister exception in (1), earlier, does not apply. Irs tax forms For example, a transfer between a brother and a sister as beneficiary and fiduciary of the same trust is a transfer between related persons. Irs tax forms The brother-sister exception does not apply because the trust relationship is independent of family status. Irs tax forms Franchise, Trademark, or Trade Name If you transfer or renew a franchise, trademark, or trade name for a price contingent on its productivity, use, or disposition, the amount you receive generally is treated as an amount realized from the sale of a noncapital asset. Irs tax forms A franchise includes an agreement that gives one of the parties the right to distribute, sell, or provide goods, services, or facilities within a specified area. Irs tax forms Significant power, right, or continuing interest. Irs tax forms   If you keep any significant power, right, or continuing interest in the subject matter of a franchise, trademark, or trade name that you transfer or renew, the amount you receive is ordinary royalty income rather than an amount realized from a sale or exchange. Irs tax forms   A significant power, right, or continuing interest in a franchise, trademark, or trade name includes, but is not limited to, the following rights in the transferred interest. Irs tax forms A right to disapprove any assignment of the interest, or any part of it. Irs tax forms A right to end the agreement at will. Irs tax forms A right to set standards of quality for products used or sold, or for services provided, and for the equipment and facilities used to promote such products or services. Irs tax forms A right to make the recipient sell or advertise only your products or services. Irs tax forms A right to make the recipient buy most supplies and equipment from you. Irs tax forms A right to receive payments based on the productivity, use, or disposition of the transferred item of interest if those payments are a substantial part of the transfer agreement. Irs tax forms Subdivision of Land If you own a tract of land and, to sell or exchange it, you subdivide it into individual lots or parcels, the gain normally is ordinary income. Irs tax forms However, you may receive capital gain treatment on at least part of the proceeds provided you meet certain requirements. Irs tax forms See section 1237 of the Internal Revenue Code. Irs tax forms Timber Standing timber held as investment property is a capital asset. Irs tax forms Gain or loss from its sale is reported as a capital gain or loss on Form 8949, and Schedule D (Form 1040), as applicable. Irs tax forms If you held the timber primarily for sale to customers, it is not a capital asset. Irs tax forms Gain or loss on its sale is ordinary business income or loss. Irs tax forms It is reported in the gross receipts or sales and cost of goods sold items of your return. Irs tax forms Farmers who cut timber on their land and sell it as logs, firewood, or pulpwood usually have no cost or other basis for that timber. Irs tax forms These sales constitute a very minor part of their farm businesses. Irs tax forms In these cases, amounts realized from such sales, and the expenses of cutting, hauling, etc. Irs tax forms , are ordinary farm income and expenses reported on Schedule F (Form 1040), Profit or Loss From Farming. Irs tax forms Different rules apply if you owned the timber longer than 1 year and elect to either: Treat timber cutting as a sale or exchange, or Enter into a cutting contract. Irs tax forms Timber is considered cut on the date when, in the ordinary course of business, the quantity of felled timber is first definitely determined. Irs tax forms This is true whether the timber is cut under contract or whether you cut it yourself. Irs tax forms Under the rules discussed below, disposition of the timber is treated as a section 1231 transaction. Irs tax forms See chapter 3. Irs tax forms Gain or loss is reported on Form 4797. Irs tax forms Christmas trees. Irs tax forms   Evergreen trees, such as Christmas trees, that are more than 6 years old when severed from their roots and sold for ornamental purposes are included in the term timber. Irs tax forms They qualify for both rules discussed below. Irs tax forms Election to treat cutting as a sale or exchange. Irs tax forms   Under the general rule, the cutting of timber results in no gain or loss. Irs tax forms It is not until a sale or exchange occurs that gain or loss is realized. Irs tax forms But if you owned or had a contractual right to cut timber, you can elect to treat the cutting of timber as a section 1231 transaction in the year the timber is cut. Irs tax forms Even though the cut timber is not actually sold or exchanged, you report your gain or loss on the cutting for the year the timber is cut. Irs tax forms Any later sale results in ordinary business income or loss. Irs tax forms See Example, later. Irs tax forms   To elect this treatment, you must: Own or hold a contractual right to cut the timber for a period of more than 1 year before it is cut, and Cut the timber for sale or for use in your trade or business. Irs tax forms Making the election. Irs tax forms   You make the election on your return for the year the cutting takes place by including in income the gain or loss on the cutting and including a computation of the gain or loss. Irs tax forms You do not have to make the election in the first year you cut timber. Irs tax forms You can make it in any year to which the election would apply. Irs tax forms If the timber is partnership property, the election is made on the partnership return. Irs tax forms This election cannot be made on an amended return. Irs tax forms   Once you have made the election, it remains in effect for all later years unless you cancel it. Irs tax forms   If you previously elected to treat the cutting of timber as a sale or exchange, you may revoke this election without the consent of the IRS. Irs tax forms The prior election (and revocation) is disregarded for purposes of making a subsequent election. Irs tax forms See Form T (Timber), Forest Activities Schedule, for more information. Irs tax forms Gain or loss. Irs tax forms   Your gain or loss on the cutting of standing timber is the difference between its adjusted basis for depletion and its fair market value on the first day of your tax year in which it is cut. Irs tax forms   Your adjusted basis for depletion of cut timber is based on the number of units (feet board measure, log scale, or other units) of timber cut during the tax year and considered to be sold or exchanged. Irs tax forms Your adjusted basis for depletion is also based on the depletion unit of timber in the account used for the cut timber, and should be figured in the same manner as shown in section 611 of the Internal Revenue Code and the related regulations. Irs tax forms   Timber depletion is discussed in chapter 9 of Publication 535. Irs tax forms Example. Irs tax forms In April 2013, you had owned 4,000 MBF (1,000 board feet) of standing timber longer than 1 year. Irs tax forms It had an adjusted basis for depletion of $40 per MBF. Irs tax forms You are a calendar year taxpayer. Irs tax forms On January 1, 2013, the timber had a fair market value (FMV) of $350 per MBF. Irs tax forms It was cut in April for sale. Irs tax forms On your 2013 tax return, you elect to treat the cutting of the timber as a sale or exchange. Irs tax forms You report the difference between the fair market value and your adjusted basis for depletion as a gain. Irs tax forms This amount is reported on Form 4797 along with your other section 1231 gains and losses to figure whether it is treated as capital gain or as ordinary gain. Irs tax forms You figure your gain as follows. Irs tax forms FMV of timber January 1, 2013 $1,400,000 Minus: Adjusted basis for depletion 160,000 Section 1231 gain $1,240,000 The fair market value becomes your basis in the cut timber and a later sale of the cut timber including any by-product or tree tops will result in ordinary business income or loss. Irs tax forms Outright sales of timber. Irs tax forms   Outright sales of timber by landowners qualify for capital gains treatment using rules similar to the rules for certain disposal of timber under a contract with retained economic interest (defined below). Irs tax forms However, for outright sales, the date of disposal is not deemed to be the date the timber is cut because the landowner can elect to treat the payment date as the date of disposal (see below). Irs tax forms Cutting contract. Irs tax forms   You must treat the disposal of standing timber under a cutting contract as a section 1231 transaction if all the following apply to you. Irs tax forms You are the owner of the timber. Irs tax forms You held the timber longer than 1 year before its disposal. Irs tax forms You kept an economic interest in the timber. Irs tax forms   You have kept an economic interest in standing timber if, under the cutting contract, the expected return on your investment is conditioned on the cutting of the timber. Irs tax forms   The difference between the amount realized from the disposal of the timber and its adjusted basis for depletion is treated as gain or loss on its sale. Irs tax forms Include this amount on Form 4797 along with your other section 1231 gains or losses to figure whether it is treated as capital or ordinary gain or loss. Irs tax forms Date of disposal. Irs tax forms   The date of disposal is the date the timber is cut. Irs tax forms However, for outright sales by landowners or if you receive payment under the contract before the timber is cut, you can elect to treat the date of payment as the date of disposal. Irs tax forms   This election applies only to figure the holding period of the timber. Irs tax forms It has no effect on the time for reporting gain or loss (generally when the timber is sold or exchanged). Irs tax forms   To make this election, attach a statement to the tax return filed by the due date (including extensions) for the year payment is received. Irs tax forms The statement must identify the advance payments subject to the election and the contract under which they were made. Irs tax forms   If you timely filed your return for the year you received payment without making the election, you still can make the election by filing an amended return within 6 months after the due date for that year's return (excluding extensions). Irs tax forms Attach the statement to the amended return and write “Filed pursuant to section 301. Irs tax forms 9100-2” at the top of the statement. Irs tax forms File the amended return at the same address the original return was filed. Irs tax forms Owner. Irs tax forms   The owner of timber is any person who owns an interest in it, including a sublessor and the holder of a contract to cut the timber. Irs tax forms You own an interest in timber if you have the right to cut it for sale on your own account or for use in your business. Irs tax forms Tree stumps. Irs tax forms   Tree stumps are a capital asset if they are on land held by an investor who is not in the timber or stump business as a buyer, seller, or processor. Irs tax forms Gain from the sale of stumps sold in one lot by such a holder is taxed as a capital gain. Irs tax forms However, tree stumps held by timber operators after the saleable standing timber was cut and removed from the land are considered by-products. Irs tax forms Gain from the sale of stumps in lots or tonnage by such operators is taxed as ordinary income. Irs tax forms   See Form T (Timber) and its separate instructions for more information about dispositions of timber. Irs tax forms Precious Metals and Stones, Stamps, and Coins Gold, silver, gems, stamps, coins, etc. Irs tax forms , are capital assets except when they are held for sale by a dealer. Irs tax forms Any gain or loss from their sale or exchange generally is a capital gain or loss. Irs tax forms If you are a dealer, the amount received from the sale is ordinary business income. Irs tax forms Coal and Iron Ore You must treat the disposal of coal (including lignite) or iron ore mined in the United States as a section 1231 transaction if both the following apply to you. Irs tax forms You owned the coal or iron ore longer than 1 year before its disposal. Irs tax forms You kept an economic interest in the coal or iron ore. Irs tax forms For this rule, the date the coal or iron ore is mined is considered the date of its disposal. Irs tax forms Your gain or loss is the difference between the amount realized from disposal of the coal or iron ore and the adjusted basis you use to figure cost depletion (increased by certain expenses not allowed as deductions for the tax year). Irs tax forms This amount is included on Form 4797 along with your other section 1231 gains and losses. Irs tax forms You are considered an owner if you own or sublet an economic interest in the coal or iron ore in place. Irs tax forms If you own only an option to buy the coal in place, you do not qualify as an owner. Irs tax forms In addition, this gain or loss treatment does not apply to income realized by an owner who is a co-adventurer, partner, or principal in the mining of coal or iron ore. Irs tax forms The expenses of making and administering the contract under which the coal or iron ore was disposed of and the expenses of preserving the economic interest kept under the contract are not allowed as deductions in figuring taxable income. Irs tax forms Rather, their total, along with the adjusted depletion basis, is deducted from the amount received to determine gain. Irs tax forms If the total of these expenses plus the adjusted depletion basis is more than the amount received, the result is a loss. Irs tax forms Special rule. Irs tax forms   The above treatment does not apply if you directly or indirectly dispose of the iron ore or coal to any of the following persons. Irs tax forms A related person whose relationship to you would result in the disallowance of a loss (see Nondeductible Loss under Sales and Exchanges Between Related Persons, earlier). Irs tax forms An individual, trust, estate, partnership, association, company, or corporation owned or controlled directly or indirectly by the same interests that own or control your business. Irs tax forms Conversion Transactions Recognized gain on the disposition or termination of any position held as part of certain conversion transactions is treated as ordinary income. Irs tax forms This applies if substantially all your expected return is attributable to the time value of your net investment (like interest on a loan) and the transaction is any of the following. Irs tax forms An applicable straddle (generally, any set of offsetting positions with respect to personal property, including stock). Irs tax forms A transaction in which you acquire property and, at or about the same time, you contract to sell the same or substantially identical property at a specified price. Irs tax forms Any other transaction that is marketed and sold as producing capital gain from a transaction in which substantially all of your expected return is due to the time value of your net investment.
