Vita tax preparer 3. Vita tax preparer   Abandonments Table of Contents You abandon property when you voluntarily and permanently give up possession and use of the property with the intention of ending your ownership but without passing it on to anyone else. Vita tax preparer Whether an abandonment has occurred is determined in light of all the facts and circumstances. Vita tax preparer You must both show an intention to abandon the property and affirmatively act to abandon the property. Vita tax preparer A voluntary conveyance of the property in lieu of foreclosure is not an abandonment and is treated as the exchange of property to satisfy a debt. Vita tax preparer For more information, see Sales and Exchanges in Publication 544. Vita tax preparer The tax consequences of abandonment of property that secures a debt depend on whether you were personally liable for the debt (recourse debt) or were not personally liable for the debt (nonrecourse debt). Vita tax preparer See Publication 544 if you abandoned property that did not secure debt. Vita tax preparer This publication only discusses the tax consequences of abandoning property that secured a debt. Vita tax preparer Abandonment of property securing recourse debt. Vita tax preparer    In most cases, if you abandon property that secures debt for which you are personally liable (recourse debt), you do not have gain or loss until the later foreclosure is completed. Vita tax preparer For details on figuring gain or loss on the foreclosure, see chapter 2. Vita tax preparer Example 1—abandonment of personal-use property securing recourse debt. Vita tax preparer In 2009, Anne purchased a home for $200,000. Vita tax preparer She borrowed the entire purchase price, for which she was personally liable, and gave the bank a mortgage on the home. Vita tax preparer In 2013, Anne lost her job and was unable to continue making her mortgage loan payments. Vita tax preparer Because her mortgage loan balance was $185,000 and the FMV of her home was only $150,000, Anne decided to abandon her home by permanently moving out on August 1, 2013. Vita tax preparer Because Anne was personally liable for the debt and the bank did not complete a foreclosure of the property in 2013, Anne has neither gain nor loss in tax year 2013 from abandoning the home. Vita tax preparer If the bank sells the house at a foreclosure sale in 2014, Anne will have to figure her gain or nondeductible loss for tax year 2014 as discussed earlier in chapter 2. Vita tax preparer Example 2—abandonment of business or investment property securing recourse debt. Vita tax preparer In 2009, Sue purchased business property for $200,000. Vita tax preparer She borrowed the entire purchase price, for which she was personally liable, and gave the lender a security interest in the property. Vita tax preparer In 2013, Sue was unable to continue making her loan payments. Vita tax preparer Because her loan balance was $185,000 and the FMV of the property was only $150,000, Sue abandoned the property on August 1, 2013. Vita tax preparer Because Sue was personally liable for the debt and the lender did not complete a foreclosure of the property in 2013, Sue has neither gain nor loss in tax year 2013 from abandoning the property. Vita tax preparer If the lender sells the property at a foreclosure sale in 2014, Sue will have to figure her gain or deductible loss for tax year 2014 as discussed earlier in chapter 2. Vita tax preparer Abandonment of property securing nonrecourse debt. Vita tax preparer    If you abandon property that secures debt for which you are not personally liable (nonrecourse debt), the abandonment is treated as a sale or exchange. Vita tax preparer   The amount you realize on the abandonment of property that secured nonrecourse debt is the amount of the nonrecourse debt. Vita tax preparer If the amount you realize is more than your adjusted basis, then you have a gain. Vita tax preparer If your adjusted basis is more than the amount you realize, then you have a loss. Vita tax preparer For more information on how to figure gain and loss, see Gain or Loss from Sales or Exchanges in Publication 544. Vita tax preparer   Loss from abandonment of business or investment property is deductible as a loss. Vita tax preparer The character of the loss depends on the character of the property. Vita tax preparer The amount of deductible capital loss may be limited. Vita tax preparer For more information, see Treatment of Capital Losses in Publication 544. Vita tax preparer You cannot deduct any loss from abandonment of your home or other property held for personal use. Vita tax preparer Example 1—abandonment of personal-use property securing nonrecourse debt. Vita tax preparer In 2009, Timothy purchased a home for $200,000. Vita tax preparer He borrowed the entire purchase price, for which he was not personally liable, and gave the bank a mortgage on the home. Vita tax preparer In 2013, Timothy lost his job and was unable to continue making his mortgage loan payments. Vita tax preparer Because his mortgage loan balance was $185,000 and the FMV of his home was only $150,000, Timothy decided to abandon his home by permanently moving out on August 1, 2013. Vita tax preparer Because Timothy was not personally liable for the debt, the abandonment is treated as a sale or exchange of the home in tax year 2013. Vita tax preparer Timothy's amount realized is $185,000 and his adjusted basis in the home is $200,000. Vita tax preparer Timothy has a $15,000 nondeductible loss in tax year 2013. Vita tax preparer (Had Timothy’s adjusted basis been less than the amount realized, Timothy would have had a gain that he would have to include in gross income. Vita tax preparer ) The bank sells the house at a foreclosure sale in 2014. Vita tax preparer Timothy has neither gain nor loss from the foreclosure sale. Vita tax preparer Because he was not personally liable for the debt, he also has no cancellation of debt income. Vita tax preparer Example 2—abandonment of business or investment property securing nonrecourse debt. Vita tax preparer In 2009, Robert purchased business property for $200,000. Vita tax preparer He borrowed the entire purchase price, for which he was not personally liable, and gave the lender a security interest in the property. Vita tax preparer In 2013, Robert was unable to continue making his loan payments. Vita tax preparer Because his loan balance was $185,000 and the FMV of the property was only $150,000, Robert decided to abandon the property on August 1, 2013. Vita tax preparer Because Robert was not personally liable for the debt, the abandonment is treated as a sale or exchange of the property in tax year 2013. Vita tax preparer Robert's amount realized is $185,000 and his adjusted basis in the property is $180,000 (as a result of $20,000 of depreciation deductions on the property). Vita tax preparer Robert has a $5,000 gain in tax year 2013. Vita tax preparer (Had Robert’s adjusted basis been greater than the amount realized, he would have had a deductible loss. Vita tax preparer ) The lender sells the property at a foreclosure sale in 2014. Vita tax preparer Robert has neither gain nor loss from the foreclosure sale. Vita tax preparer Because he was not personally liable for the debt, he also has no cancellation of debt income. Vita tax preparer Canceled debt. Vita tax preparer    If the abandoned property secures a debt for which you are personally liable and the debt is canceled, you will realize ordinary income equal to the canceled debt. Vita tax preparer This income is separate from any amount realized from abandonment of the property. Vita tax preparer You must report this income on your return unless one of the exceptions or exclusions described in chapter 1 applies. Vita tax preparer See chapter 1 for more details. Vita tax preparer Forms 1099-A and 1099-C. Vita tax preparer    In most cases, if you abandon real property (such as a home), intangible property, or tangible personal property held (wholly or partly) for use in a trade or business or for investment, that secures a loan and the lender knows the property has been abandoned, the lender should send you Form 1099-A showing information you need to figure your gain or loss from the abandonment. Vita tax preparer Also, if your debt is canceled and the lender must file Form 1099-C, the lender can include the information about the abandonment on that form instead of on Form 1099-A. Vita tax preparer The lender must file Form 1099-C and send you a copy if the amount of debt canceled is $600 or more and the lender is a financial institution, credit union, federal government agency, or any organization that has a significant trade or business of lending money. Vita tax preparer For abandonments of property and debt cancellations occurring in 2013, these forms should be sent to you by January 31, 2014.

IRA One-Rollover-Per-Year Rule

Beginning as early as January 1, 2015, you can make only one rollover from a traditional IRA to another (or the same) traditional IRA in any 12-month period, regardless of the number of IRAs you own (Announcement  2014-15). A similar limitation will apply to rollovers between Roth IRAs. You can, however, continue to make as many trustee-to-trustee transfers between IRAs as you want. Amounts transferred between traditional IRAs, either by rollover or trustee-to-trustee transfer, are excluded from your gross income.

Current law

You don’t have to include in your gross income any amount distributed to you from a traditional IRA if you deposit the amount into another (or the same) traditional IRA within 60 days (Internal Revenue Code Section 408(d)(3)). Under Internal Revenue Code Section 408(d)(3)(B), only one IRA-to-IRA rollover can be made in any 12-month period. Proposed Treasury Regulation Section 1.408-4(b)(4)(ii), published in 1981, and IRS Publication 590, Individual Retirement Arrangements (IRAs) interpret this limitation as applying on an IRA-by-IRA basis, meaning a rollover from one IRA to another would not affect a rollover involving other IRAs of the same individual.

U.S. Tax Court decision

The Tax Court recently held that you can’t make a non-taxable rollover from one IRA to another if you have already made a rollover from any of your IRAs in the preceding 1-year period (Bobrow v. Commissioner, T.C. Memo. 2014-21). Following the holding in this decision means:

  • you must include in gross income any previously untaxed amounts distributed from an IRA if you made an IRA-to-IRA rollover in the preceding 12 months, and
  • you may be subject to the 10% early withdrawal tax on the amount you include in gross income.

Additionally, if you pay these amounts into another (or the same) IRA, they may be:

Prospective application

The IRS intends to follow the Tax Court’s interpretation of Internal Revenue Code Section 408(d)(3)(B). However, to give IRA owners and trustees time to adjust, the IRS will delay implementation until January 1, 2015, at the earliest. Proposed Treasury Regulation Section 1.408-4(b)(4)(ii) will be withdrawn and Publication 590 will be revised to reflect the new interpretation.

Only rollovers will be affected

This change won’t affect your ability to transfer funds from one IRA trustee directly to another, because this type of transfer isn’t a rollover (Revenue Ruling 78-406, 1978-2 C.B. 157). The one-rollover-per-year rule of Internal Revenue Code Section 408(d)(3)(B) applies only to rollovers.
