Militaryonesource taxes The IRS may test your electronic storage system, including the equipment used, indexing methodology, software and retrieval capabilities. Militaryonesource taxes This test is not considered an examination and the results must be shared with you. Militaryonesource taxes If your electronic storage system meets the requirements mentioned earlier, you will be in compliance.

Militaryonesource taxes How Long To Keep Records You must keep your records as long as they may be needed for the administration of any provision of the Internal Revenue Code. Militaryonesource taxes Keep records that support an item of income or a deduction appearing on a return until the period of limitations for the return runs out. Militaryonesource taxes A period of limitations is the period of time after which no legal action can be brought. Militaryonesource taxes Generally, that means you must keep your records for at least 3 years from when your tax return was due or filed or within 2 years of the date the tax was paid, whichever is later. Militaryonesource taxes However, certain records must be kept for a longer period of time, as discussed below. Militaryonesource taxes Employment taxes. Militaryonesource taxes   If you have employees, you must keep all employment tax records for at least 4 years after the date the tax becomes due or is paid, whichever is later. Militaryonesource taxes Assets. Militaryonesource taxes   Keep records relating to property until the period of limitations expires for the year in which you dispose of the property in a taxable disposition. Militaryonesource taxes You must keep these records to figure any depreciation, amortization, or depletion deduction and to figure your basis for computing gain or (loss) when you sell or otherwise dispose of the property. Militaryonesource taxes   You may need to keep records relating to the basis of property longer than the period of limitation. Militaryonesource taxes Keep those records as long as they are important in figuring the basis of the original or replacement property. Militaryonesource taxes Generally, this means as long as you own the property and, after you dispose of it, for the period of limitations that applies to you. Militaryonesource taxes For example, if you received property in a nontaxable exchange, you must keep the records for the old property, as well as for the new property, until the period of limitations expires for the year in which you dispose of the new property in a taxable disposition. Militaryonesource taxes For more information on basis, see chapter 6. Militaryonesource taxes Records for nontax purposes. Militaryonesource taxes   When your records are no longer needed for tax purposes, do not discard them until you check to see if you have to keep them longer for other purposes. Militaryonesource taxes For example, your insurance company or creditors may require you to keep them longer than the IRS does. Militaryonesource taxes Prev  Up  Next   Home   More Online Publications
