How to file a state tax return Sale or exchange of real estate. How to file a state tax return This property must be used in your business and held longer than 1 year.

How to file a state tax return In 2013, Ben has a $2,000 net section 1231 gain. How to file a state tax return To figure how much he has to report as ordinary income and long-term capital gain, he must first determine his section 1231 gains and losses from the previous 5-year period. How to file a state tax return From 2008 through 2012 he had the following section 1231 gains and losses. How to file a state tax return Year Amount 2008 -0- 2009 -0- 2010 ($2,500) 2011 -0- 2012 $1,800   Ben uses this information to figure how to report his net section 1231 gain for 2013 as shown below. How to file a state tax return 1) Net section 1231 gain (2013) $2,000 2) Net section 1231 loss (2010) ($2,500)   3) Net section 1231 gain (2012) 1,800   4) Remaining net section 1231 loss from prior 5 years ($700)   5) Gain treated as  ordinary income $700 6) Gain treated as long-term  capital gain $1,300 His remaining net section 1231 loss from 2010 is completely recaptured in 2013. How to file a state tax return Depreciation Recapture If you dispose of depreciable or amortizable property at a gain, you may have to treat all or part of the gain (even if it is otherwise nontaxable) as ordinary income. How to file a state tax return To figure any gain that must be reported as ordinary income, you must keep permanent records of the facts necessary to figure the depreciation or amortization allowed or allowable on your property.

How to file a state tax return   The fact that the structure is specially designed to withstand the stress and other demands of the property and cannot be used economically for other purposes indicates it is closely related to the use of the property it houses.

How to file a state tax return Facility for bulk storage of fungible commodities. How to file a state tax return   This is a facility used mainly for the bulk storage of fungible commodities.

How to file a state tax return Example. How to file a state tax return Jeff Free paid $120,000 for a tractor in 2012. How to file a state tax return On February 23, 2013, he traded it for a chopper and paid an additional $30,000.

How to file a state tax return See Depreciation Recapture in chapter 3 of Publication 544 for more details. How to file a state tax return Ordinary depreciation deductions.

How to file a state tax return Qualified disaster expenses. How to file a state tax return Franchises, trademarks, and trade names acquired before August 11, 1993. How to file a state tax return Example. How to file a state tax return You file your returns on a calendar year basis. How to file a state tax return In February 2011, you bought and placed in service for 100% use in your farming business a light-duty truck (5-year property) that cost $10,000. How to file a state tax return You used the half-year convention and your MACRS deductions for the truck were $1,500 in 2011 and $2,550 in 2012. How to file a state tax return You did not claim the section 179 expense deduction for the truck. How to file a state tax return You sold it in May 2013 for $7,000. How to file a state tax return The MACRS deduction in 2013, the year of sale, is $893 (½ of $1,785). How to file a state tax return Figure the gain treated as ordinary income as follows. How to file a state tax return 1) Amount realized $7,000 2) Cost (February 2011) $10,000   3) Depreciation allowed or allowable (MACRS deductions: $1,500 + $2,550 + $893) 4,943   4) Adjusted basis (subtract line 3 from line 2) $5,057 5) Gain realized (subtract line 4 from line 1) 1,943 6) Gain treated as ordinary income (lesser of line 3 or line 5) $1,943 Depreciation allowed or allowable. How to file a state tax return   You generally use the greater of the depreciation allowed or allowable when figuring the part of gain to report as ordinary income. How to file a state tax return If, in prior years, you have consistently taken proper deductions under one method, the amount allowed for your prior years will not be increased even though a greater amount would have been allowed under another proper method. How to file a state tax return If you did not take any deduction at all for depreciation, your adjustments to basis for depreciation allowable are figured by using the straight line method. How to file a state tax return This treatment applies only when figuring what part of the gain is treated as ordinary income under the rules for section 1245 depreciation recapture. How to file a state tax return Disposition of plants and animals. How to file a state tax return   If you elect not to use the uniform capitalization rules (see chapter 6), you must treat any plant you produce as section 1245 property. How to file a state tax return If you have a gain on the property's disposition, you must recapture the pre-productive expenses you would have capitalized if you had not made the election by treating the gain, up to the amount of these expenses, as ordinary income. How to file a state tax return For section 1231 transactions, show these expenses as depreciation on Form 4797, Part III, line 22. How to file a state tax return For plant sales that are reported on Schedule F (1040), Profit or Loss From Farming, this recapture rule does not change the reporting of income because the gain is already ordinary income. How to file a state tax return You can use the farm-price method or the unit-livestock-price method discussed in  chapter 2 to figure these expenses. How to file a state tax return Example. How to file a state tax return Janet Maple sold her apple orchard in 2013 for $80,000. How to file a state tax return Her adjusted basis at the time of sale was $60,000. How to file a state tax return She bought the orchard in 2006, but the trees did not produce a crop until 2009. How to file a state tax return Her pre-productive expenses were $6,000. How to file a state tax return She elected not to use the uniform capitalization rules. How to file a state tax return Janet must treat $6,000 of the gain as ordinary income. How to file a state tax return Section 1250 Property Section 1250 property includes all real property subject to an allowance for depreciation that is not and never has been section 1245 property. How to file a state tax return It includes buildings and structural components that are not section 1245 property (discussed earlier). How to file a state tax return It includes a leasehold of land or section 1250 property subject to an allowance for depreciation. How to file a state tax return A fee simple interest in land is not section 1250 property because, like land, it is not depreciable. How to file a state tax return Gain on the disposition of section 1250 property is treated as ordinary income to the extent of additional depreciation allowed or allowable. How to file a state tax return To determine the additional depreciation on section 1250 property, see Depreciation Recapture in chapter 3 of Publication 544. How to file a state tax return You will not have additional depreciation if any of the following apply to the property disposed of. How to file a state tax return You figured depreciation for the property using the straight line method or any other method that does not result in depreciation that is more than the amount figured by the straight line method and you have held the property longer than 1 year. How to file a state tax return You chose the alternate ACRS (straight line) method for the property, which was a type of 15-, 18-, or 19-year real property covered by the section 1250 rules. How to file a state tax return The property was nonresidential real property placed in service after 1986 (or after July 31, 1986, if the choice to use MACRS was made) and you held it longer than 1 year. How to file a state tax return These properties are depreciated using the straight line method. How to file a state tax return Installment Sale If you report the sale of property under the installment method, any depreciation recapture under section 1245 or 1250 is taxable as ordinary income in the year of sale. How to file a state tax return This applies even if no payments are received in that year. How to file a state tax return If the gain is more than the depreciation recapture income, report the rest of the gain using the rules of the installment method. How to file a state tax return For this purpose, include the recapture income in your installment sale basis to determine your gross profit on the installment sale. How to file a state tax return If you dispose of more than one asset in a single transaction, you must separately figure the gain on each asset so that it may be properly reported. How to file a state tax return To do this, allocate the selling price and the payments you receive in the year of sale to each asset. How to file a state tax return Report any depreciation recapture income in the year of sale before using the installment method for any remaining gain. How to file a state tax return For more information on installment sales, see chapter 10. How to file a state tax return Other Dispositions Chapter 3 of Publication 544 discusses the tax treatment of the following transfers of depreciable property. How to file a state tax return By gift. How to file a state tax return At death. How to file a state tax return In like-kind exchanges. How to file a state tax return In involuntary conversions. How to file a state tax return Publication 544 also explains how to handle a single transaction involving multiple properties.

How to file a state tax return Exclusions from income for certain cost sharing payments (section 1255 property). How to file a state tax return Section 1252 property. How to file a state tax return   If you disposed of farmland you held more than 1 year and less than 10 years at a gain and you were allowed deductions for soil and water conservation expenses for the land, as discussed in chapter 5, you must treat part of the gain as ordinary income and treat the balance as section 1231 gain. How to file a state tax return Exceptions. How to file a state tax return   Do not treat gain on the following transactions as gain on section 1252 property. How to file a state tax return Disposition of farmland by gift. How to file a state tax return Transfer of farm property at death (except for income in respect of a decedent). How to file a state tax return For more information, see Regulations section 1. How to file a state tax return 1252-2. How to file a state tax return Amount to report as ordinary income. How to file a state tax return   You report as ordinary income the lesser of the following amounts. How to file a state tax return Your gain (determined by subtracting the adjusted basis from the amount realized from a sale, exchange, or involuntary conversion, or the FMV for all other dispositions). How to file a state tax return The total deductions allowed for soil and water conservation expenses multiplied by the applicable percentage, discussed next. How to file a state tax return Applicable percentage. How to file a state tax return   The applicable percentage is based on the length of time you held the land. How to file a state tax return If you dispose of your farmland within 5 years after the date you acquired it, the percentage is 100%. How to file a state tax return If you dispose of the land within the 6th through 9th year after you acquired it, the applicable percentage is reduced by 20% a year for each year or part of a year you hold the land after the 5th year. How to file a state tax return If you dispose of the land 10 or more years after you acquired it, the percentage is 0%, and the entire gain is a section 1231 gain. How to file a state tax return Example. How to file a state tax return You acquired farmland on January 19, 2005. How to file a state tax return On October 3, 2013, you sold the land at a $30,000 gain. How to file a state tax return Between January 1 and October 3, 2013, you incur soil and water conservation expenditures of $15,000 for the land that are fully deductible in 2013. How to file a state tax return The applicable percentage is 40% since you sold the land within the 8th year after you acquired it. How to file a state tax return You treat $6,000 (40% of $15,000) of the $30,000 gain as ordinary income and the $24,000 balance as a section 1231 gain. How to file a state tax return Section 1255 property. How to file a state tax return   If you receive certain cost-sharing payments on property and you exclude those payments from income (as discussed in chapter 3), you may have to treat part of any gain as ordinary income and treat the balance as a section 1231 gain. How to file a state tax return If you chose not to exclude these payments, you will not have to recognize ordinary income under this provision. How to file a state tax return Amount to report as ordinary income. How to file a state tax return   You report as ordinary income the lesser of the following amounts. How to file a state tax return The applicable percentage of the total excluded cost-sharing payments. How to file a state tax return The gain on the disposition of the property. How to file a state tax return You do not report ordinary income under this rule to the extent the gain is recognized as ordinary income under sections 1231 through 1254, 1256, and 1257. How to file a state tax return However, if applicable, gain reported under this rule must be reported regardless of any contrary provisions (including nonrecognition provisions) under any other section. How to file a state tax return Applicable percentage. How to file a state tax return   The applicable percentage of the excluded cost-sharing payments to be reported as ordinary income is based on the length of time you hold the property after receiving the payments. How to file a state tax return If the property is held less than 10 years after you receive the payments, the percentage is 100%. How to file a state tax return After 10 years, the percentage is reduced by 10% a year, or part of a year, until the rate is 0%. How to file a state tax return Form 4797, Part III.
