State ms income tax form 2005 Research and Experimental Costs Optional Write-off of Certain Tax Preferences Introduction Amortization is a method of recovering (deducting) certain capital costs over a fixed period of time. State ms income tax form 2005 It is similar to the straight line method of depreciation. State ms income tax form 2005 The various amortizable costs covered in this chapter are included in the list below. State ms income tax form 2005 However, this chapter does not discuss amortization of bond premium. State ms income tax form 2005 For information on that topic, see chapter 3 of Publication 550, Investment Income and Expenses. State ms income tax form 2005 Topics - This chapter discusses: Deducting amortization Amortizing costs of starting a business Amortizing costs of getting a lease Amortizing costs of section 197 intangibles Amortizing reforestation costs Amortizing costs of geological and geophysical costs Amortizing costs of pollution control facilities Amortizing costs of research and experimentation Amortizing costs of certain tax preferences Useful Items - You may want to see: Publication 544 Sales and Other Dispositions of Assets 550 Investment Income and Expenses 946 How To Depreciate Property Form (and Instructions) 4562 Depreciation and Amortization 4626 Alternative Minimum Tax—Corporations 6251 Alternative Minimum Tax—Individuals See chapter 12 for information about getting publications and forms. State ms income tax form 2005 How To Deduct Amortization To deduct amortization that begins during the current tax year, complete Part VI of Form 4562 and attach it to your income tax return. State ms income tax form 2005 To report amortization from previous years, in addition to amortization that begins in the current year, list on Form 4562 each item separately. State ms income tax form 2005 For example, in 2012, you began to amortize a lease. State ms income tax form 2005 In 2013, you began to amortize a second lease. State ms income tax form 2005 Report amortization from the new lease on line 42 of your 2013 Form 4562. State ms income tax form 2005 Report amortization from the 2012 lease on line 43 of your 2013 Form 4562. State ms income tax form 2005 If you do not have any new amortizable expenses for the current year, you are not required to complete Form 4562 (unless you are claiming depreciation). State ms income tax form 2005 Report the current year's deduction for amortization that began in a prior year directly on the “Other deduction” or “Other expense line” of your return. State ms income tax form 2005 Starting a Business When you start a business, treat all eligible costs you incur before you begin operating the business as capital expenditures which are part of your basis in the business. State ms income tax form 2005 Generally, you recover costs for particular assets through depreciation deductions. State ms income tax form 2005 However, you generally cannot recover other costs until you sell the business or otherwise go out of business. State ms income tax form 2005 For a discussion on how to treat these costs, see If your attempt to go into business is unsuccessful under Capital Expenses in chapter 1. State ms income tax form 2005 For costs paid or incurred after September 8, 2008, you can deduct a limited amount of start-up and organizational costs. State ms income tax form 2005 The costs that are not deducted currently can be amortized ratably over a 180-month period. State ms income tax form 2005 The amortization period starts with the month you begin operating your active trade or business. State ms income tax form 2005 You are not required to attach a statement to make this election. State ms income tax form 2005 You can choose to forgo this election by affirmatively electing to capitalize your start-up costs on your income tax return filed by the due date (including extensions) for the tax year in which the active trade or business begins. State ms income tax form 2005 Once made, the election to either amortize or capitalize start-up costs is irrevocable and applies to all start-up costs that are related to your trade or business. State ms income tax form 2005 See Regulations sections 1. State ms income tax form 2005 195-1, 1. State ms income tax form 2005 248-1, and 1. State ms income tax form 2005 709-1. State ms income tax form 2005 For costs paid or incurred after October 22, 2004, and before September 9, 2008, you can elect to deduct a limited amount of business start-up and organizational costs in the year your active trade or business begins. State ms income tax form 2005 Any costs not deducted can be amortized ratably over a 180-month period, beginning with the month you begin business. State ms income tax form 2005 If the election is made, you must attach any statement required by Regulations sections 1. State ms income tax form 2005 195-1(b), 1. State ms income tax form 2005 248-1(c), and 1. State ms income tax form 2005 709-1(c), as in effect before September 9, 2008. State ms income tax form 2005 Note. State ms income tax form 2005 You can apply the provisions of Regulations sections 1. State ms income tax form 2005 195-1, 1. State ms income tax form 2005 248-1, and 1. State ms income tax form 2005 709-1 to all business start-up and organizational costs paid or incurred after October 22, 2004, provided the period of limitations on assessment has not expired for the year of the election. State ms income tax form 2005 Otherwise, the provisions under Regulations sections 1. State ms income tax form 2005 195-1(b), 1. State ms income tax form 2005 248-1(c), and 1. State ms income tax form 2005 709-1(c), as in effect before September 9, 2008, will apply. State ms income tax form 2005 For costs paid or incurred before October 23, 2004, you can elect to amortize business start-up and organization costs over an amortization period of 60 months or more. State ms income tax form 2005 See How To Make the Election , later. State ms income tax form 2005 The cost must qualify as one of the following. State ms income tax form 2005 A business start-up cost. State ms income tax form 2005 An organizational cost for a corporation. State ms income tax form 2005 An organizational cost for a partnership. State ms income tax form 2005 Business Start-Up Costs Start-up costs are amounts paid or incurred for: (a) creating an active trade or business; or (b) investigating the creation or acquisition of an active trade or business. State ms income tax form 2005 Start-up costs include amounts paid or incurred in connection with an existing activity engaged in for profit; and for the production of income in anticipation of the activity becoming an active trade or business. State ms income tax form 2005 Qualifying costs. State ms income tax form 2005   A start-up cost is amortizable if it meets both of the following tests. State ms income tax form 2005 It is a cost you could deduct if you paid or incurred it to operate an existing active trade or business (in the same field as the one you entered into). State ms income tax form 2005 It is a cost you pay or incur before the day your active trade or business begins. State ms income tax form 2005   Start-up costs include amounts paid for the following: An analysis or survey of potential markets, products, labor supply, transportation facilities, etc. State ms income tax form 2005 Advertisements for the opening of the business. State ms income tax form 2005 Salaries and wages for employees who are being trained and their instructors. State ms income tax form 2005 Travel and other necessary costs for securing prospective distributors, suppliers, or customers. State ms income tax form 2005 Salaries and fees for executives and consultants, or for similar professional services. State ms income tax form 2005 Nonqualifying costs. State ms income tax form 2005   Start-up costs do not include deductible interest, taxes, or research and experimental costs. State ms income tax form 2005 See Research and Experimental Costs , later. State ms income tax form 2005 Purchasing an active trade or business. State ms income tax form 2005   Amortizable start-up costs for purchasing an active trade or business include only investigative costs incurred in the course of a general search for or preliminary investigation of the business. State ms income tax form 2005 These are costs that help you decide whether to purchase a business. State ms income tax form 2005 Costs you incur in an attempt to purchase a specific business are capital expenses that you cannot amortize. State ms income tax form 2005 Example. State ms income tax form 2005 On June 1st, you hired an accounting firm and a law firm to assist you in the potential purchase of XYZ, Inc. State ms income tax form 2005 They researched XYZ's industry and analyzed the financial projections of XYZ, Inc. State ms income tax form 2005 In September, the law firm prepared and submitted a letter of intent to XYZ, Inc. State ms income tax form 2005 The letter stated that a binding commitment would result only after a purchase agreement was signed. State ms income tax form 2005 The law firm and accounting firm continued to provide services including a review of XYZ's books and records and the preparation of a purchase agreement. State ms income tax form 2005 On October 22nd, you signed a purchase agreement with XYZ, Inc. State ms income tax form 2005 All amounts paid or incurred to investigate the business before October 22nd are amortizable investigative costs. State ms income tax form 2005 Amounts paid on or after that date relate to the attempt to purchase the business and therefore must be capitalized. State ms income tax form 2005 Disposition of business. State ms income tax form 2005   If you completely dispose of your business before the end of the amortization period, you can deduct any remaining deferred start-up costs. State ms income tax form 2005 However, you can deduct these deferred start-up costs only to the extent they qualify as a loss from a business. State ms income tax form 2005 Costs of Organizing a Corporation Amounts paid to organize a corporation are the direct costs of creating the corporation. State ms income tax form 2005 Qualifying costs. State ms income tax form 2005   To qualify as an organizational cost, it must be: For the creation of the corporation, Chargeable to a capital account (see chapter 1), Amortized over the life of the corporation if the corporation had a fixed life, and Incurred before the end of the first tax year in which the corporation is in business. State ms income tax form 2005   A corporation using the cash method of accounting can amortize organizational costs incurred within the first tax year, even if it does not pay them in that year. State ms income tax form 2005   Examples of organizational costs include: The cost of temporary directors. State ms income tax form 2005 The cost of organizational meetings. State ms income tax form 2005 State incorporation fees. State ms income tax form 2005 The cost of legal services. State ms income tax form 2005 Nonqualifying costs. State ms income tax form 2005   The following items are capital expenses that cannot be amortized: Costs for issuing and selling stock or securities, such as commissions, professional fees, and printing costs. State ms income tax form 2005 Costs associated with the transfer of assets to the corporation. State ms income tax form 2005 Costs of Organizing a Partnership The costs to organize a partnership are the direct costs of creating the partnership. State ms income tax form 2005 Qualifying costs. State ms income tax form 2005   A partnership can amortize an organizational cost only if it meets all the following tests. State ms income tax form 2005 It is for the creation of the partnership and not for starting or operating the partnership trade or business. State ms income tax form 2005 It is chargeable to a capital account (see chapter 1). State ms income tax form 2005 It could be amortized over the life of the partnership if the partnership had a fixed life. State ms income tax form 2005 It is incurred by the due date of the partnership return (excluding extensions) for the first tax year in which the partnership is in business. State ms income tax form 2005 However, if the partnership uses the cash method of accounting and pays the cost after the end of its first tax year, see Cash method partnership under How To Amortize, later. State ms income tax form 2005 It is for a type of item normally expected to benefit the partnership throughout its entire life. State ms income tax form 2005   Organizational costs include the following fees. State ms income tax form 2005 Legal fees for services incident to the organization of the partnership, such as negotiation and preparation of the partnership agreement. State ms income tax form 2005 Accounting fees for services incident to the organization of the partnership. State ms income tax form 2005 Filing fees. State ms income tax form 2005 Nonqualifying costs. State ms income tax form 2005   The following costs cannot be amortized. State ms income tax form 2005 The cost of acquiring assets for the partnership or transferring assets to the partnership. State ms income tax form 2005 The cost of admitting or removing partners, other than at the time the partnership is first organized. State ms income tax form 2005 The cost of making a contract concerning the operation of the partnership trade or business including a contract between a partner and the partnership. State ms income tax form 2005 The costs for issuing and marketing interests in the partnership such as brokerage, registration, and legal fees and printing costs. State ms income tax form 2005 These “syndication fees” are capital expenses that cannot be depreciated or amortized. State ms income tax form 2005 Liquidation of partnership. State ms income tax form 2005   If a partnership is liquidated before the end of the amortization period, the unamortized amount of qualifying organizational costs can be deducted in the partnership's final tax year. State ms income tax form 2005 However, these costs can be deducted only to the extent they qualify as a loss from a business. State ms income tax form 2005 How To Amortize Deduct start-up and organizational costs in equal amounts over the applicable amortization period (discussed earlier). State ms income tax form 2005 You can choose an amortization period for start-up costs that is different from the period you choose for organizational costs, as long as both are not less than the applicable amortization period. State ms income tax form 2005 Once you choose an amortization period, you cannot change it. State ms income tax form 2005 To figure your deduction, divide your total start-up or organizational costs by the months in the amortization period. State ms income tax form 2005 The result is the amount you can deduct for each month. State ms income tax form 2005 Cash method partnership. State ms income tax form 2005   A partnership using the cash method of accounting can deduct an organizational cost only if it has been paid by the end of the tax year. State ms income tax form 2005 However, any cost the partnership could have deducted as an organizational cost in an earlier tax year (if it had been paid that year) can be deducted in the tax year of payment. State ms income tax form 2005 How To Make the Election To elect to amortize start-up or organizational costs, you must complete and attach Form 4562 to your return for the first tax year you are in business. State ms income tax form 2005 You may also be required to attach an accompanying statement (described later) to your return. State ms income tax form 2005 For start-up or organizational costs paid or incurred after September 8, 2008, an accompanying statement is not required. State ms income tax form 2005 Generally, for start-up or organizational costs paid or incurred before September 9, 2008, and after October 22, 2004, unless you choose to apply Regulations sections 1. State ms income tax form 2005 195-1, 1. State ms income tax form 2005 248-1, and 1. State ms income tax form 2005 709-1, you must also attach an accompanying statement to elect to amortize the costs. State ms income tax form 2005 If you have both start-up and organizational costs, attach a separate statement (if required) to your return for each type of cost. State ms income tax form 2005 See Starting a Business , earlier, for more information. State ms income tax form 2005 Generally, you must file the return by the due date (including any extensions). State ms income tax form 2005 However, if you timely filed your return for the year without making the election, you can still make the election by filing an amended return within 6 months of the due date of the return (excluding extensions). State ms income tax form 2005 For more information, see the instructions for Part VI of Form 4562. State ms income tax form 2005 You can choose to forgo the election to amortize by affirmatively electing to capitalize your start-up or organizational costs on your income tax return filed by the due date (including extensions) for the tax year in which the active trade or business begins. State ms income tax form 2005 Note. State ms income tax form 2005 The election to either amortize or capitalize start-up or organizational costs is irrevocable and applies to all start-up and organizational costs that are related to the trade or business. State ms income tax form 2005 If your business is organized as a corporation or partnership, only the corporation or partnership can elect to amortize its start-up or organizational costs. State ms income tax form 2005 A shareholder or partner cannot make this election. State ms income tax form 2005 You, as a shareholder or partner, cannot amortize any costs you incur in setting up your corporation or partnership. State ms income tax form 2005 Only the corporation or partnership can amortize these costs. State ms income tax form 2005 However, you, as an individual, can elect to amortize costs you incur to investigate an interest in an existing partnership. State ms income tax form 2005 These costs qualify as business start-up costs if you acquire the partnership interest. State ms income tax form 2005 Start-up costs election statement. State ms income tax form 2005   If you elect to amortize your start-up costs, attach a separate statement (if required) that contains the following information. State ms income tax form 2005 A description of the business to which the start-up costs relate. State ms income tax form 2005 A description of each start-up cost incurred. State ms income tax form 2005 The month your active business began (or was acquired). State ms income tax form 2005 The number of months in your amortization period (which is generally 180 months). State ms income tax form 2005 Filing the statement early. State ms income tax form 2005   You can elect to amortize your start-up costs by filing the statement with a return for any tax year before the year your active business begins. State ms income tax form 2005 If you file the statement early, the election becomes effective in the month of the tax year your active business begins. State ms income tax form 2005 Revised statement. State ms income tax form 2005   You can file a revised statement to include any start-up costs not included in your original statement. State ms income tax form 2005 However, you cannot include on the revised statement any cost you previously treated on your return as a cost other than a start-up cost. State ms income tax form 2005 You can file the revised statement with a return filed after the return on which you elected to amortize your start-up costs. State ms income tax form 2005 Organizational costs election statement. State ms income tax form 2005   If you elect to amortize your corporation's or partnership's organizational costs, attach a separate statement (if required) that contains the following information. State ms income tax form 2005 A description of each cost. State ms income tax form 2005 The amount of each cost. State ms income tax form 2005 The date each cost was incurred. State ms income tax form 2005 The month your corporation or partnership began active business (or acquired the business). State ms income tax form 2005 The number of months in your amortization period (which is generally 180 months). State ms income tax form 2005 Partnerships. State ms income tax form 2005   The statement prepared for a cash basis partnership must also indicate the amount paid before the end of the year for each cost. State ms income tax form 2005   You do not need to separately list any partnership organizational cost that is less than $10. State ms income tax form 2005 Instead, you can list the total amount of these costs with the dates the first and last costs were incurred. State ms income tax form 2005   After a partnership makes the election to amortize organizational costs, it can later file an amended return to include additional organizational costs not included in the partnership's original return and statement. State ms income tax form 2005 Getting a Lease If you get a lease for business property, you may recover the cost of acquiring the lease by amortizing it over the term of the lease. State ms income tax form 2005 The term of the lease for amortization purposes generally includes all renewal options (and any other period for which you and the lessor reasonably expect the lease to be renewed). State ms income tax form 2005 However, renewal periods are not included if 75% or more of the cost of acquiring the lease is for the term of the lease remaining on the acquisition date (not including any period for which you may choose to renew, extend, or continue the lease). State ms income tax form 2005 For more information on the costs of getting a lease, see Cost of Getting a Lease in  chapter 3. State ms income tax form 2005 How to amortize. State ms income tax form 2005   Enter your deduction in Part VI of Form 4562 if you are deducting amortization that begins during the current year, or on the appropriate line of your tax return if you are not otherwise required to file Form 4562. State ms income tax form 2005 Section 197 Intangibles Generally, you may amortize the capitalized costs of “section 197 intangibles” (defined later) ratably over a 15-year period. State ms income tax form 2005 You must amortize these costs if you hold the section 197 intangibles in connection with your trade or business or in an activity engaged in for the production of income. State ms income tax form 2005 You may not be able to amortize section 197 intangibles acquired in a transaction that did not result in a significant change in ownership or use. State ms income tax form 2005 See Anti-Churning Rules, later. State ms income tax form 2005 Your amortization deduction each year is the applicable part of the intangible's adjusted basis (for purposes of determining gain), figured by amortizing it ratably over 15 years (180 months). State ms income tax form 2005 The 15-year period begins with the later of: The month the intangible is acquired, or The month the trade or business or activity engaged in for the production of income begins. State ms income tax form 2005 You cannot deduct amortization for the month you dispose of the intangible. State ms income tax form 2005 If you pay or incur an amount that increases the basis of an amortizable section 197 intangible after the 15-year period begins, amortize it over the remainder of the 15-year period beginning with the month the basis increase occurs. State ms income tax form 2005 You are not allowed any other depreciation or amortization deduction for an amortizable section 197 intangible. State ms income tax form 2005 Tax-exempt use property subject to a lease. State ms income tax form 2005   The amortization period for any section 197 intangible leased under a lease agreement entered into after March 12, 2004, to a tax-exempt organization, governmental unit, or foreign person or entity (other than a partnership), shall not be less than 125 percent of the lease term. State ms income tax form 2005 Cost attributable to other property. State ms income tax form 2005   The rules for section 197 intangibles do not apply to any amount that is included in determining the cost of property that is not a section 197 intangible. State ms income tax form 2005 For example, if the cost of computer software is not separately stated from the cost of hardware or other tangible property and you consistently treat it as part of the cost of the hardware or other tangible property, these rules do not apply. State ms income tax form 2005 Similarly, none of the cost of acquiring real property held for the production of rental income is considered the cost of goodwill, going concern value, or any other section 197 intangible. State ms income tax form 2005 Section 197 Intangibles Defined The following assets are section 197 intangibles and must be amortized over 180 months: Goodwill; Going concern value; Workforce in place; Business books and records, operating systems, or any other information base, including lists or other information concerning current or prospective customers; A patent, copyright, formula, process, design, pattern, know-how, format, or similar item; A customer-based intangible; A supplier-based intangible; Any item similar to items (3) through (7); A license, permit, or other right granted by a governmental unit or agency (including issuances and renewals); A covenant not to compete entered into in connection with the acquisition of an interest in a trade or business; Any franchise, trademark, or trade name; and A contract for the use of, or a term interest in, any item in this list. State ms income tax form 2005 You cannot amortize any of the intangibles listed in items (1) through (8) that you created rather than acquired unless you created them in acquiring assets that make up a trade or business or a substantial part of a trade or business. State ms income tax form 2005 Goodwill. State ms income tax form 2005   This is the value of a trade or business based on expected continued customer patronage due to its name, reputation, or any other factor. State ms income tax form 2005 Going concern value. State ms income tax form 2005   This is the additional value of a trade or business that attaches to property because the property is an integral part of an ongoing business activity. State ms income tax form 2005 It includes value based on the ability of a business to continue to function and generate income even though there is a change in ownership (but does not include any other section 197 intangible). State ms income tax form 2005 It also includes value based on the immediate use or availability of an acquired trade or business, such as the use of earnings during any period in which the business would not otherwise be available or operational. State ms income tax form 2005 Workforce in place, etc. State ms income tax form 2005   This includes the composition of a workforce (for example, its experience, education, or training). State ms income tax form 2005 It also includes the terms and conditions of employment, whether contractual or otherwise, and any other value placed on employees or any of their attributes. State ms income tax form 2005   For example, you must amortize the part of the purchase price of a business that is for the existence of a highly skilled workforce. State ms income tax form 2005 Also, you must amortize the cost of acquiring an existing employment contract or relationship with employees or consultants. State ms income tax form 2005 Business books and records, etc. State ms income tax form 2005   This includes the intangible value of technical manuals, training manuals or programs, data files, and accounting or inventory control systems. State ms income tax form 2005 It also includes the cost of customer lists, subscription lists, insurance expirations, patient or client files, and lists of newspaper, magazine, radio, and television advertisers. State ms income tax form 2005 Patents, copyrights, etc. State ms income tax form 2005   This includes package design, computer software, and any interest in a film, sound recording, videotape, book, or other similar property, except as discussed later under Assets That Are Not Section 197 Intangibles . State ms income tax form 2005 Customer-based intangible.
