Irsefile com Bad Debts If someone owes you money you cannot collect, you have a bad debt. Irsefile com There are two kinds of bad debts, business bad debts and nonbusiness bad debts. Irsefile com A business bad debt is generally one that comes from operating your trade or business. Irsefile com You may be able to deduct business bad debts as an expense on your business tax return. Irsefile com Business bad debt. Irsefile com   A business bad debt is a loss from the worthlessness of a debt that was either of the following. Irsefile com Created or acquired in your business. Irsefile com Closely related to your business when it became partly or totally worthless. Irsefile com A debt is closely related to your business if your primary motive for incurring the debt is a business reason. Irsefile com   Business bad debts are mainly the result of credit sales to customers. Irsefile com They can also be the result of loans to suppliers, clients, employees, or distributors. Irsefile com Goods and services customers have not paid for are shown in your books as either accounts receivable or notes receivable. Irsefile com If you are unable to collect any part of these accounts or notes receivable, the uncollectible part is a business bad debt. Irsefile com    You can take a bad debt deduction for these accounts and notes receivable only if the amount you were owed was included in your gross income either for the year the deduction is claimed or for a prior year. Irsefile com Accrual method. Irsefile com   If you use an accrual method of accounting, you normally report income as you earn it. Irsefile com You can take a bad debt deduction for an uncollectible receivable if you have included the uncollectible amount in income. Irsefile com Cash method. Irsefile com   If you use the cash method of accounting, you normally report income when you receive payment. Irsefile com You cannot take a bad debt deduction for amounts owed to you that you have not received and cannot collect if you never included those amounts in income. Irsefile com More information. Irsefile com   For more information about business bad debts, see chapter 10 in Publication 535. Irsefile com Nonbusiness bad debts. Irsefile com   All other bad debts are nonbusiness bad debts and are deductible as short-term capital losses on Form 8949 and Schedule D (Form 1040). Irsefile com For more information on nonbusiness bad debts, see Publication 550, Investment Income and Expenses. Irsefile com Car and Truck Expenses If you use your car or truck in your business, you may be able to deduct the costs of operating and maintaining your vehicle.

Irsefile com   Local transportation expenses include the ordinary and necessary costs of all the following. Irsefile com Getting from one workplace to another in the course of your business or profession when you are traveling within the city or general area that is your tax home. Irsefile com Tax home is defined later. Irsefile com Visiting clients or customers. Irsefile com Going to a business meeting away from your regular workplace. Irsefile com Getting from your home to a temporary workplace when you have one or more regular places of work. Irsefile com These temporary workplaces can be either within the area of your tax home or outside that area. Irsefile com Local business transportation does not include expenses you have while traveling away from home overnight. Irsefile com Those expenses are deductible as travel expenses and are discussed later under Travel, Meals, and Entertainment. Irsefile com However, if you use your car while traveling away from home overnight, use the rules in this section to figure your car expense deduction. Irsefile com   Generally, your tax home is your regular place of business, regardless of where you maintain your family home. Irsefile com It includes the entire city or general area in which your business or work is located. Irsefile com Example. Irsefile com You operate a printing business out of rented office space. Irsefile com You use your van to deliver completed jobs to your customers. Irsefile com You can deduct the cost of round-trip transportation between your customers and your print shop. Irsefile com    You cannot deduct the costs of driving your car or truck between your home and your main or regular workplace. Irsefile com These costs are personal commuting expenses. Irsefile com Office in the home. Irsefile com   Your workplace can be your home if you have an office in your home that qualifies as your principal place of business. Irsefile com For more information, see Business Use of Your Home, later. Irsefile com Example. Irsefile com You are a graphics designer. Irsefile com You operate your business out of your home. Irsefile com Your home qualifies as your principal place of business. Irsefile com You occasionally have to drive to your clients to deliver your completed work. Irsefile com You can deduct the cost of the round-trip transportation between your home and your clients. Irsefile com Methods for Deducting Car and Truck Expenses For local transportation or overnight travel by car or truck, you generally can use one of the following methods to figure your expenses. Irsefile com Standard mileage rate. Irsefile com Actual expenses. Irsefile com Standard mileage rate. Irsefile com   You may be able to use the standard mileage rate to figure the deductible costs of operating your car, van, pickup, or panel truck for business purposes. Irsefile com For 2013, the standard mileage rate is 56. Irsefile com 5 cents per mile. Irsefile com    If you choose to use the standard mileage rate for a year, you cannot deduct your actual expenses for that year except for business-related parking fees and tolls. Irsefile com Choosing the standard mileage rate. Irsefile com   If you want to use the standard mileage rate for a car or truck you own, you must choose to use it in the first year the car is available for use in your business. Irsefile com In later years, you can choose to use either the standard mileage rate or actual expenses. Irsefile com   If you use the standard mileage rate for a car you lease, you must choose to use it for the entire lease period (including renewals). Irsefile com Standard mileage rate not allowed. Irsefile com   You cannot use the standard mileage rate if you: Operate five or more cars at the same time, Claimed a depreciation deduction using any method other than straight line, for example, ACRS or MACRS, Claimed a section 179 deduction on the car, Claimed the special depreciation allowance on the car, Claimed actual car expenses for a car you leased, or Are a rural mail carrier who received a qualified reimbursement. Irsefile com Parking fees and tolls. Irsefile com   In addition to using the standard mileage rate, you can deduct any business-related parking fees and tolls. Irsefile com (Parking fees you pay to park your car at your place of work are nondeductible commuting expenses. Irsefile com ) Actual expenses. Irsefile com   If you do not choose to use the standard mileage rate, you may be able to deduct your actual car or truck expenses. Irsefile com    If you qualify to use both methods, figure your deduction both ways to see which gives you a larger deduction. Irsefile com   Actual car expenses include the costs of the following items. Irsefile com Depreciation Lease payments Registration Garage rent Licenses Repairs Gas Oil Tires Insurance Parking fees Tolls   If you use your vehicle for both business and personal purposes, you must divide your expenses between business and personal use.

Irsefile com You drove your van 20,000 miles during the year. Irsefile com 16,000 miles were for delivering flowers to customers and 4,000 miles were for personal use (including commuting miles). Irsefile com You can claim only 80% (16,000 ÷ 20,000) of the cost of operating your van as a business expense. Irsefile com More information.

Irsefile com You can deduct in 2014 and 2015 the premium allocable to those years. Irsefile com More information. Irsefile com   For more information about deducting insurance, see chapter 6 in Publication 535.

Irsefile com Under certain plans, employees can have you contribute limited amounts of their before-tax pay to a plan. Irsefile com These amounts (and earnings on them) are generally tax free until your employees receive distributions from the plan. Irsefile com For more information on retirement plans for small business, see Publication 560, Retirement Plans for Small Business (SEP, SIMPLE, and Qualified Plans).

Irsefile com Business Use of Your Home To deduct expenses related to the part of your home used for business, you must meet specific requirements. Irsefile com Even then, your deduction may be limited. Irsefile com To qualify to claim expenses for business use of your home, you must meet the following tests. Irsefile com Your use of the business part of your home must be: Exclusive (however, see Exceptions to exclusive use , later), Regular, For your business, and The business part of your home must be one of the following: Your principal place of business (defined later), A place where you meet or deal with patients, clients, or customers in the normal course of your business, or A separate structure (not attached to your home) you use in connection with your business. Irsefile com Exclusive use. Irsefile com   To qualify under the exclusive use test, you must use a specific area of your home only for your trade or business. Irsefile com The area used for business can be a room or other separately identifiable space. Irsefile com The space does not need to be marked off by a permanent partition. Irsefile com   You do not meet the requirements of the exclusive use test if you use the area in question both for business and for personal purposes. Irsefile com Example. Irsefile com You are an attorney and use a den in your home to write legal briefs and prepare clients' tax returns. Irsefile com Your family also uses the den for recreation. Irsefile com The den is not used exclusively in your profession, so you cannot claim a business deduction for its use. Irsefile com Exceptions to exclusive use. Irsefile com   You do not have to meet the exclusive use test if you use part of your home in either of the following ways. Irsefile com For the storage of inventory or product samples. Irsefile com As a daycare facility. Irsefile com For an explanation of these exceptions, see Publication 587, Business Use of Your Home (Including Use by Daycare Providers). Irsefile com Regular use. Irsefile com   To qualify under the regular use test, you must use a specific area of your home for business on a continuing basis. Irsefile com You do not meet the test if your business use of the area is only occasional or incidental, even if you do not use that area for any other purpose. Irsefile com Principal place of business. Irsefile com   You can have more than one business location, including your home, for a single trade or business. Irsefile com To qualify to deduct the expenses for the business use of your home under the principal place of business test, your home must be your principal place of business for that business. Irsefile com To determine your principal place of business, you must consider all the facts and circumstances. Irsefile com   Your home office will qualify as your principal place of business for deducting expenses for its use if you meet the following requirements. Irsefile com You use it exclusively and regularly for administrative or management activities of your business. Irsefile com You have no other fixed location where you conduct substantial administrative or management activities of your business. Irsefile com   Alternatively, if you use your home exclusively and regularly for your business, but your home office does not qualify as your principal place of business based on the previous rules, you determine your principal place of business based on the following factors. Irsefile com The relative importance of the activities performed at each location. Irsefile com If the relative importance factor does not determine your principal place of business, you can also consider the time spent at each location. Irsefile com   If, after considering your business locations, your home cannot be identified as your principal place of business, you cannot deduct home office expenses. Irsefile com However, for other ways to qualify to deduct home office expenses, see Publication 587. Irsefile com Deduction limit. Irsefile com   If your gross income from the business use of your home equals or exceeds your total business expenses (including depreciation), you can deduct all your business expenses related to the use of your home. Irsefile com If your gross income from the business use is less than your total business expenses, your deduction for certain expenses for the business use of your home is limited. Irsefile com   Your deduction of otherwise nondeductible expenses, such as insurance, utilities, and depreciation (with depreciation taken last), allocable to the business is limited to the gross income from the business use of your home minus the sum of the following. Irsefile com The business part of expenses you could deduct even if you did not use your home for business (such as mortgage interest, real estate taxes, and casualty and theft losses that are allowable as itemized deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040)). Irsefile com The business expenses that relate to the business activity in the home (for example, business phone, supplies, and depreciation on equipment), but not to the use of the home itself. Irsefile com Do not include in (2) above your deduction for one-half of your self-employment tax. Irsefile com   Use Form 8829, Expenses for Business Use of Your Home, to figure your deduction. Irsefile com New simplified method. Irsefile com    The IRS now provides a simplified method to determine your expenses for business use of your home. Irsefile com The simplified method is an alternative to calculating and substantiating actual expenses. Irsefile com In most cases, you will figure your deduction by multiplying $5 by the area of your home used for a qualified business use. Irsefile com The area you use to figure your deduction is limited to 300 square feet. Irsefile com For more information, see the Instructions for Schedule C. Irsefile com More information. Irsefile com   For more information on deducting expenses for the business use of your home, see Publication 587.
