State of louisiana amended return form 1040x See Inventory , later. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The selling price must be allocated to determine the amount received for each class of asset. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The tax treatment of the gain or loss on the sale of each class of assets is determined by its classification as a capital asset, as property used in the business, or as property held for sale and by the length of time the asset was held. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x (See chapter 8 for a discussion of capital assets and chapter 9 for a discussion of property used in the business.

State of louisiana amended return form 1040x See Inventory , later, for information on the sale of farm property where inventory items are included in the assets sold. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x If a sale qualifies as an installment sale, the gain must be reported under the installment method unless you elect out of using the installment method. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Electing out of the installment method. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   If you elect not to use the installment method, you generally report the entire gain in the year of sale, even though you do not receive all the sale proceeds in that year. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   To make this election, do not report your sale on Form 6252. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Instead, report it on Schedule D (Form 1040), Form 4797, or both. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x When to elect out.

State of louisiana amended return form 1040x 9100-2” at the top of the amended return and file it where the original return was filed.

State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   The sale of farm inventory items cannot be reported on the installment method. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x All gain or loss on their sale must be reported in the year of sale, even if you receive payment in later years.

State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Basis is the amount of your investment in the property for installment sale purposes. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Interest income. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   You must report interest as ordinary income. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Interest is generally not included in a down payment. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x However, you may have to treat part of each later payment as interest, even if it is not called interest in your agreement with the buyer. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Interest provided in the agreement is called stated interest. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x If the agreement does not provide for enough stated interest, there may be unstated interest or original issue discount. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x See Unstated interest , later.

State of louisiana amended return form 1040x If the holder and the buyer were related, the FMV of the installment obligation is considered to be no less than its full face value. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x More information.

State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   If the buyer pays any of your expenses related to the sale of your property, it is considered a payment to you in the year of sale. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Include these expenses in the selling and contract prices when figuring the gross profit percentage. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Buyer assumes mortgage. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   If the buyer assumes or pays off your mortgage, or otherwise takes the property subject to the mortgage, the following rules apply. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Mortgage less than basis. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   If the buyer assumes a mortgage that is not more than your installment sale basis in the property, it is not considered a payment to you. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x It is considered a recovery of your basis. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The contract price is the selling price minus the mortgage. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Example. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x You sell property with an adjusted basis of $19,000. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x You have selling expenses of $1,000. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The buyer assumes your existing mortgage of $15,000 and agrees to pay you $10,000 (a cash down payment of $2,000 and $2,000 (plus 8% interest) in each of the next 4 years). State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The selling price is $25,000 ($15,000 + $10,000). State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Your gross profit is $5,000 ($25,000 − $20,000 installment sale basis). State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The contract price is $10,000 ($25,000 − $15,000 mortgage). State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Your gross profit percentage is 50% ($5,000 ÷ $10,000). State of louisiana amended return form 1040x You report half of each $2,000 payment received as gain from the sale. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x You also report all interest you receive as ordinary income. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Mortgage more than basis. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   If the buyer assumes a mortgage that is more than your installment sale basis in the property, you recover your entire basis. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The part of the mortgage greater than your basis is treated as a payment received in the year of sale. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   To figure the contract price, subtract the mortgage from the selling price. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x This is the total amount (other than interest) you will receive directly from the buyer. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Add to this amount the payment you are considered to have received (the difference between the mortgage and your installment sale basis). State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The contract price is then the same as your gross profit from the sale. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x    If the mortgage the buyer assumes is equal to or more than your installment sale basis, the gross profit percentage always will be 100%. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Example. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The selling price for your property is $9,000. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The buyer will pay you $1,000 annually (plus 8% interest) over the next 3 years and assume an existing mortgage of $6,000. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Your adjusted basis in the property is $4,400. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x You have selling expenses of $600, for a total installment sale basis of $5,000. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The part of the mortgage that is more than your installment sale basis is $1,000 ($6,000 − $5,000). State of louisiana amended return form 1040x This amount is included in the contract price and treated as a payment received in the year of sale. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The contract price is $4,000: Selling price $9,000 Minus: Mortgage (6,000) Amount actually received $3,000 Add difference:   Mortgage $6,000   Minus: Installment sale basis 5,000 1,000 Contract price $4,000   Your gross profit on the sale is also $4,000: Selling price $9,000 Minus: Installment sale basis (5,000) Gross profit $4,000   Your gross profit percentage is 100%. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Report 100% of each payment (less interest) as gain from the sale. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Treat the $1,000 difference between the mortgage and your installment sale basis as a payment and report 100% of it as gain in the year of sale. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Buyer assumes other debts. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   If the buyer assumes any other debts, such as a loan or back taxes, it may be considered a payment to you in the year of sale. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   If the buyer assumes the debt instead of paying it off, only part of it may have to be treated as a payment. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Compare the debt to your installment sale basis in the property being sold. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x If the debt is less than your installment sale basis, none of it is treated as a payment. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x If it is more, only the difference is treated as a payment. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x If the buyer assumes more than one debt, any part of the total that is more than your installment sale basis is considered a payment. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x These rules are the same as the rules discussed earlier under Buyer assumes mortgage . State of louisiana amended return form 1040x However, they apply only to the following types of debt the buyer assumes. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Those acquired from ownership of the property you are selling, such as a mortgage, lien, overdue interest, or back taxes. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Those acquired in the ordinary course of your business, such as a balance due for inventory you purchased. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   If the buyer assumes any other type of debt, such as a personal loan or your legal fees relating to the sale, it is treated as if the buyer had paid off the debt at the time of the sale. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The value of the assumed debt is then considered a payment to you in the year of sale. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Property used as a payment. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   If you receive property rather than money from the buyer, it is still considered a payment in the year received. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x However, see Trading property for like-kind property , later. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Generally, the amount of the payment is the property's FMV on the date you receive it. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Exception. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   If the property the buyer gives you is payable on demand or readily tradable (see examples later), the amount you should consider as payment in the year received is: The FMV of the property on the date you receive it if you use the cash method of accounting, The face amount of the obligation on the date you receive it if you use an accrual method of accounting, or The stated redemption price at maturity less any original issue discount (OID) or, if there is no OID, the stated redemption price at maturity appropriately discounted to reflect total unstated interest. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x See Unstated interest , later. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Examples. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x If you receive a note from the buyer as payment, and the note stipulates that you can demand payment from the buyer at any time, the note is payable on demand. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x If you receive marketable securities from the buyer as payment, and you can sell the securities on an established securities market (such as the New York Stock Exchange) at any time, the securities are readily tradable. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x In these examples, use the above rules to determine the amount you should consider as payment in the year received. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Debt not payable on demand. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   Any evidence of debt you receive from the buyer that is not payable on demand is not considered a payment. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x This is true even if the debt is guaranteed by a third party, including a government agency. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Fair market value (FMV). State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   This is the price at which property would change hands between a willing buyer and a willing seller, neither being under any compulsion to buy or sell and both having a reasonable knowledge of all the necessary facts. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Third-party note. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   If the property the buyer gives you is a third-party note (or other obligation of a third party), you are considered to have received a payment equal to the note's FMV. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Because the FMV of the note is itself a payment on your installment sale, any payments you later receive from the third party are not considered payments on the sale. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The excess of the note's face value over its FMV is interest. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Exclude this interest in determining the selling price of the property. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x However, see Exception under Property used as a payment , earlier. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Example. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x You sold real estate in an installment sale. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x As part of the down payment, the buyer assigned to you a $50,000, 8% third-party note. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The FMV of the third-party note at the time of the sale was $30,000. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x This amount, not $50,000, is a payment to you in the year of sale. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The third-party note had an FMV equal to 60% of its face value ($30,000 ÷ $50,000), so 60% of each principal payment you receive on this note is a nontaxable return of capital. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The remaining 40% is interest taxed as ordinary income. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Bond. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   A bond or other evidence of debt you receive from the buyer that is payable on demand or readily tradable in an established securities market is treated as a payment in the year you receive it. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x For more information on the amount you should treat as a payment, see Exception under Property used as a payment , earlier. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   If you receive a government or corporate bond for a sale before October 22, 2004, and the bond has interest coupons attached or can be readily traded in an established securities market, you are considered to have received payment equal to the bond's FMV. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x However, see Exception under Property used as a payment , earlier. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Buyer's note. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   The buyer's note (unless payable on demand) is not considered payment on the sale. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x However, its full face value is included when figuring the selling price and the contract price. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Payments you receive on the note are used to figure your gain in the year received. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Sale to a related person. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   If you sell depreciable property to a related person and the sale is an installment sale, you may not be able to report the sale using the installment method. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x For information on these rules, see the Instructions for Form 6252 and Sale to a Related Person in Publication 537. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Trading property for like-kind property. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   If you trade business or investment property solely for the same kind of property to be held as business or investment property, you can postpone reporting the gain. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x See Like-Kind Exchanges in chapter 8 for a discussion of like-kind property. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   If, in addition to like-kind property, you receive an installment obligation in the exchange, the following rules apply to determine installment sale income each year. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The contract price is reduced by the FMV of the like-kind property received in the trade. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The gross profit is reduced by any gain on the trade that can be postponed. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Like-kind property received in the trade is not considered payment on the installment obligation. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Unstated interest. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   An installment sale contract may provide that each deferred payment on the sale will include interest or that there will be an interest payment in addition to the principal payment. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Interest provided in the contract is called stated interest. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   If an installment sale contract does not provide for adequate stated interest, part of the stated principal amount of the contract may be recharacterized as interest. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x If Internal Revenue Code section 483 applies to the contract, this interest is called unstated interest. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   If Internal Revenue Code section 1274 applies to the contract, this interest is called original issue discount (OID). State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   Generally, if a buyer gives a debt in consideration for personal use property, the unstated interest rules do not apply. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Therefore, the buyer cannot deduct the unstated interest. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The seller must report the unstated interest as income. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Personal-use property is any property in which substantially all of its use by the buyer is not in connection with a trade or business or an investment activity. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   If the debt is subject to the Internal Revenue Code section 483 rules and is also subject to the below-market loan rules, such as a gift loan, compensation-related loan or corporation-shareholder loan, then both parties are subject to the below-market loan rules rather than the unstated interest rules. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   Unstated interest reduces the stated selling price of the property and the buyer's basis in the property. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x It increases the seller's interest income and the buyer's interest expense. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   In general, an installment sale contract provides for adequate stated interest if the stated interest rate (based on an appropriate compounding period) is at least equal to the applicable federal rate (AFR). State of louisiana amended return form 1040x    The AFRs are published monthly in the Internal Revenue Bulletin (IRB). State of louisiana amended return form 1040x You can get this information by contacting an IRS office. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x IRBs are also available at IRS. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x gov. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x More information. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   For more information, see Unstated Interest and Original Issue Discount (OID) in Publication 537. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Example. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x You sell property at a contract price of $6,000 and your gross profit is $1,500. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Your gross profit percentage is 25% ($1,500 ÷ $6,000). State of louisiana amended return form 1040x After subtracting interest, you report 25% of each payment, including the down payment, as installment sale income from the sale for the tax year you receive the payment. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The remainder (balance) of each payment is the tax-free return of your adjusted basis. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Example On January 3, 2013, you sold your farm, including the home, farm land and buildings. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x You received $50,000 down and the buyer's note for $200,000. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x In addition, the buyer assumed an outstanding $50,000 mortgage on the farm land. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The total selling price was $300,000. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The note payments of $25,000 each, plus adequate interest, are due every July 1 and January 1, beginning in July 2013. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Your selling expenses were $15,000. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Adjusted basis and depreciation. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   The adjusted basis and depreciation claimed on each asset sold are as follows:   Depreciation Adjusted Asset Claimed Basis Home* -0- $33,743 Farm land -0- 73,610 Buildings $31,500 35,130 * Owned and used as main home for at least 2 of the 5 years prior to the sale Gain on each asset. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   The following schedule shows the assets included in the sale, each asset's selling price based on its respective value, the selling expense allocated to each asset, the adjusted basis of each asset, and the gain on each asset. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The selling expense for each asset is 5% of the selling price ($15,000 selling expense ÷ $300,000 selling price). State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   Selling Selling Adjusted     Price Expense Basis Gain Home* $60,000 $3,000 $33,743 $23,257 Farm land  165,000  8,250  73,610  83,140 Buildings 75,000 3,750 35,130 36,120   $300,000 $15,000 $142,483 $142,517 * Owned and used as main home for at least 2 of the 5 years prior to the sale Depreciation recapture. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   The buildings are section 1250 property. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x There is no depreciation recapture income for them because they were depreciated using the straight line method. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x See chapter 9 for more information on depreciation recapture. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   Special rules may apply when you sell section 1250 assets depreciated under the straight line method. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x See the Unrecaptured Section 1250 Gain Worksheet in the Instructions for Schedule D (Form 1040). State of louisiana amended return form 1040x See chapter 3 of Publication 544, Sales and Other Dispositions of Assets, for more information on section 1250 assets.

State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   One hundred percent (100%) of each payment is reported on the installment method. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The total amount received on the sale in 2013 is $75,000 ($50,000 down payment + $25,000 payment on July 1). State of louisiana amended return form 1040x The installment sale part of the total payments received in 2013 is also $75,000.

State of louisiana amended return form 1040x They may be reported as either capital or ordinary gain depending on the net balance when combined with other section 1231 losses. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x A net 1231 gain is capital gain and a net 1231 loss is an ordinary loss. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x Installment income for years after 2013. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x   You figure installment income for the years after 2013 by applying the same gross profit percentages to the payments you receive each year. State of louisiana amended return form 1040x If you receive $50,000 during the year, the entire $50,000 is considered received on the installment sale (100% × $50,000).
