Clinics (LITCs). 1040ez forms 2014 Definitions The following definitions are used throughout this publication. 1040ez forms 2014 Kansas Disaster Area The Kansas disaster area covers the Kansas counties of Barton, Clay, Cloud, Comanche, Dickinson, Edwards, Ellsworth, Kiowa, Leavenworth, Lyon, McPherson, Osage, Osborne, Ottawa, Phillips, Pottawatomie, Pratt, Reno, Rice, Riley, Saline, Shawnee, Smith, and Stafford. 1040ez forms 2014 Storms and Tornadoes The term “storms and tornadoes” as used in this publication, refers to the storms and tornadoes that began on May 4, 2007, and affected the Kansas disaster area (defined above). 1040ez forms 2014 Casualty and Theft Losses The following paragraphs explain changes to casualty and theft losses that occurred in the Kansas disaster area. 1040ez forms 2014 Limits on personal casualty or theft losses in the Kansas disaster area. 1040ez forms 2014   Losses of personal use property that arose in the Kansas disaster area after May 3, 2007, are not subject to the $100 or 10% of adjusted gross income limits. 1040ez forms 2014 Qualifying losses include losses from casualties and thefts that arose in the disaster area and that were attributable to the storms and tornadoes. 1040ez forms 2014 When to deduct the loss. 1040ez forms 2014   Casualty and theft losses are generally deductible only in the year the casualty occurred or the theft was discovered. 1040ez forms 2014 However, the Kansas disaster area is a Presidentially declared disaster. 1040ez forms 2014 Therefore, you could have elected to deduct losses from these storms and tornadoes on your tax return for the previous year. 1040ez forms 2014 The deadline for making this election has expired. 1040ez forms 2014   The following special instructions explain how to complete your forms if you deduct the loss in 2007 or elected to deduct the loss in 2006. 1040ez forms 2014 Special instructions for individuals who file Form 4684 to claim a Kansas disaster area casualty or theft loss for 2007 or are amending their 2006 return. 1040ez forms 2014   Individuals filing or amending their 2007 tax return or amending their 2006 tax return for casualty or theft losses that were attributable to the storms and tornadoes should enter “Kansas Disaster Area” at the top of Form 1040 or 1040X. 1040ez forms 2014 They must also complete and attach the 2006 version of Form 4684 for either year and enter “Kansas Disaster Area” on the top and on the dotted line next to line 11 and enter -0- on line 11. 1040ez forms 2014 Individuals filing or amending their 2007 tax return should cross out “2006” and enter “2007” at the top of Form 4684. 1040ez forms 2014 They must also enter the amount from line 21 of that form on line 20 of Schedule A (Form 1040). 1040ez forms 2014 Replacement Period for Nonrecognition of Gain Generally, an involuntary conversion occurs when property is damaged, destroyed, stolen, seized, requisitioned, or condemned, and you receive other property or money in payment, such as insurance or a condemnation award. 1040ez forms 2014 Generally, you do not have to report a gain (if any) if you replace the property within 2 years (4 years for a main home in a Presidentially declared disaster area). 1040ez forms 2014 However, for property that was involuntarily converted after May 3, 2007, as a result of the storms and tornadoes, a 5-year replacement period applies if substantially all of the use of the replacement property is in the Kansas disaster area. 1040ez forms 2014 For more information, see the Instructions for Form 4684. 1040ez forms 2014 Net Operating Losses Qualified recovery assistance loss. 1040ez forms 2014   Generally, you can carry a net operating loss (NOL) back to the 2 tax years before the NOL year. 1040ez forms 2014 However, the portion of an NOL that is a qualified recovery assistance loss can be carried back to the 5 tax years before the NOL year. 1040ez forms 2014 In addition, the 90% limit on the alternative tax NOL deduction (ATNOLD) does not apply to such portion of the ATNOLD. 1040ez forms 2014   A qualified recovery assistance loss is the smaller of: The excess of the NOL for the year over the specified liability loss for the year to which a 10-year carryback applies, or The total of the following deductions (to the extent they are taken into account in computing the NOL for the tax year): Qualified recovery assistance casualty loss (as defined below), Moving expenses paid or incurred after May 3, 2007, and before January 1, 2010, for the employment of an individual whose main home was in the Kansas disaster area before May 4, 2007, who was unable to remain in that home because of the storms and tornadoes, and whose main job location (after the move) is in the Kansas disaster area, Temporary housing expenses paid or incurred after May 3, 2007, and before January 1, 2010, to house employees of the taxpayer whose main job location is in the Kansas disaster area, Depreciation or amortization allowable for any qualified recovery assistance property (even if you elected not to claim the special recovery assistance depreciation allowance for such property) for the year placed in service, and Repair expenses (including expenses for the removal of debris) paid or incurred after May 3, 2007, and before January 1, 2010, for any damage from the storms and tornadoes to property located in the Kansas disaster area. 1040ez forms 2014 Qualified recovery assistance casualty loss. 1040ez forms 2014   A qualified recovery assistance casualty loss is any deductible section 1231 loss of property located in the Kansas disaster area if the loss was caused by the storms and tornadoes. 1040ez forms 2014 For this purpose, the amount of the loss is reduced by any recognized gain from an involuntary conversion caused by the storms and tornadoes of property located in the Kansas disaster area. 1040ez forms 2014 Any such loss taken into account in figuring your qualified recovery assistance loss is not eligible for the election to be treated as having occurred in the previous tax year. 1040ez forms 2014 Amended return. 1040ez forms 2014   If you have already filed your 2007 tax return and then carried your NOL back 2 years, you may file an amended return to carry back for 5 years your NOL attributable to a qualified recovery assistance loss. 1040ez forms 2014 More information. 1040ez forms 2014    For more information on NOLs, see Publication 536. 1040ez forms 2014 IRAs and Other Retirement Plans New rules provide for tax-favored withdrawals, repayments, and loans from certain retirement plans for individuals who suffered economic losses as a result of the storms and tornadoes. 1040ez forms 2014 Definitions Qualified recovery assistance distribution. 1040ez forms 2014   Except as provided below, a qualified recovery assistance distribution is any distribution you received and designated as such from an eligible retirement plan if all of the following apply. 1040ez forms 2014 The distribution was made after May 3, 2007, and before January 1, 2009. 1040ez forms 2014 Your main home was located in the Kansas disaster area on May 4, 2007. 1040ez forms 2014 You sustained an economic loss because of the storms and tornadoes. 1040ez forms 2014 Examples of an economic loss include, but are not limited to: Loss, damage to, or destruction of real or personal property from fire, flooding, looting, vandalism, theft, wind, or other cause; Loss related to displacement from your home; or Loss of livelihood due to temporary or permanent layoffs. 1040ez forms 2014   If (1) through (3) above apply, you can generally designate any distribution (including periodic payments and required minimum distributions) from an eligible retirement plan as a qualified recovery assistance distribution, regardless of whether the distribution was made on account of the storms and tornadoes. 1040ez forms 2014 Qualified recovery assistance distributions are permitted without regard to your need or the actual amount of your economic loss. 1040ez forms 2014   The total of your qualified recovery assistance distributions from all plans is limited to $100,000. 1040ez forms 2014 If you have distributions in excess of $100,000 from more than one type of plan, such as a 401(k) plan and an IRA, you may allocate the $100,000 limit among the plans any way you choose. 1040ez forms 2014   A reduction or offset after May 3, 2007, of your account balance in an eligible retirement plan in order to repay a loan can also be designated as a qualified recovery assistance distribution. 1040ez forms 2014 Eligible retirement plan. 1040ez forms 2014   An eligible retirement plan can be any of the following. 1040ez forms 2014 A qualified pension, profit-sharing, or stock bonus plan (including a 401(k) plan). 1040ez forms 2014 A qualified annuity plan. 1040ez forms 2014 A tax-sheltered annuity contract. 1040ez forms 2014 A governmental section 457 deferred compensation plan. 1040ez forms 2014 A traditional, SEP, SIMPLE, or Roth IRA. 1040ez forms 2014 Main home. 1040ez forms 2014   Generally, your main home is the home where you live most of the time. 1040ez forms 2014 A temporary absence due to special circumstances, such as illness, education, business, military service, evacuation, or vacation, will not change your main home. 1040ez forms 2014 Taxation of Qualified Recovery Assistance Distributions Qualified recovery assistance distributions are included in income in equal amounts over three years. 1040ez forms 2014 However, if you elect, you can include the entire distribution in your income in the year it was received. 1040ez forms 2014 Qualified recovery assistance distributions are not subject to the additional 10% tax (or the additional 25% tax for certain distributions from SIMPLE IRAs) on early distributions from qualified retirement plans (including IRAs). 1040ez forms 2014 However, any distributions you receive in excess of the $100,000 qualified recovery assistance distribution limit may be subject to the additional tax on early distributions. 1040ez forms 2014 For more information, see How To Report Qualified Recovery Assistance Distributions on page 4. 1040ez forms 2014 Repayment of Qualified Recovery Assistance Distributions If you choose, you generally can repay any portion of a qualified recovery assistance distribution that is eligible for tax-free rollover treatment to an eligible retirement plan. 1040ez forms 2014 Also, you can repay a qualified recovery assistance distribution made on account of a hardship from a retirement plan. 1040ez forms 2014 However, see Exceptions below for qualified recovery assistance distributions you cannot repay. 1040ez forms 2014 You have three years from the day after the date you received the distribution to make a repayment. 1040ez forms 2014 Amounts that are repaid are treated as a qualified rollover and are not included in income. 1040ez forms 2014 Also, for purposes of the one-rollover-per-year limitation for IRAs, a repayment to an IRA is not considered a qualified rollover. 1040ez forms 2014 See Form 8915 for more information on how to report repayments. 1040ez forms 2014 Exceptions. 1040ez forms 2014   You cannot repay the following types of distributions. 1040ez forms 2014 Qualified recovery assistance distributions received as a beneficiary (other than a surviving spouse). 1040ez forms 2014 Required minimum distributions. 1040ez forms 2014 Periodic payments (other than from an IRA) that are for: A period of 10 years or more, Your life or life expectancy, or The joint lives or joint life expectancies of you and your beneficiary. 1040ez forms 2014 How To Report Qualified Recovery Assistance Distributions You will need the following information to correctly report any 2007 or 2008 qualified recovery assistance distributions. 1040ez forms 2014 2007 Qualified Recovery Assistance Distributions If you received a distribution after May 3, 2007, from an eligible retirement plan, you may be able to designate it as a qualified recovery assistance distribution. 1040ez forms 2014 See

2007 income tax return, you will need to amend your return to designate any distributions as qualified recovery assistance distributions. 1040ez forms 2014 You can amend your 2007 income tax return by using Form 1040X. 1040ez forms 2014 You will need to complete and attach Form 8915 and Form 8606 (if required) to your amended income tax return for any qualified recovery assistance distributions. 1040ez forms 2014 See Form 8915 and Form 8606 on this page. 1040ez forms 2014 Form 8915. 1040ez forms 2014   For a 2007 qualified recovery assistance distribution, complete the 2005 Form 8915, Qualified Hurricane Retirement Plan Distributions and Repayments. 1040ez forms 2014 Before you complete the form, modify the form as follows. 1040ez forms 2014 Cross out “Hurricane” in the title at

2014 Before you complete or amend the form, use the following additional instructions. 1040ez forms 2014 Form 8606, Part I. 1040ez forms 2014    On line 6, subtract any repayments of qualified recovery assistance distributions from the amount you would otherwise enter on line 6. 1040ez forms 2014 Do not enter an amount less than -0-. 1040ez forms 2014 Include on line 7 the amount of any qualified recovery assistance distributions that you received even if they were later repaid. 1040ez forms 2014 Complete line 15 as follows. 1040ez forms 2014 If all of your distributions are qualified recovery assistance distributions, enter the amount from line 15 on Form 8915, line 13. 1040ez forms 2014 Do not enter this amount on Form 1040, line 15b; Form 1040A, line 11b; or Form 1040NR, line 16b. 1040ez forms 2014 If you have qualified recovery assistance distributions as well as other distributions, you will need to multiply the amount on line 15 by a fraction. 1040ez forms 2014 The numerator of the fraction is your total qualified recovery assistance distributions and the denominator is the amount from Form 8606, line 7. 1040ez forms 2014 Enter the result in the white space in the bottom margin of the form under line 15. 1040ez forms 2014 To the left of this amount, enter “Qualified recovery assistance distributions” and also enter this amount on Form 8915, line 13. 1040ez forms 2014 Then, subtract this amount from the amount on line 15 and include the result on Form 1040, line 15b; Form 1040A, line 11b; or Form 1040NR, line 16b. 1040ez forms 2014 Also, enter this amount on Form 8606 under your qualified recovery assistance distributions. 1040ez forms 2014 To the left of this amount, enter “Other distributions. 1040ez forms 2014 ” Form 8606, Part III. 1040ez forms 2014    Include on line 19 the amount of any qualified recovery assistance distributions that you received even if they were later repaid. 1040ez forms 2014 Complete line 25 as follows. 1040ez forms 2014 If all of your distributions are qualified recovery assistance distributions, enter the amount from line 25 on Form 8915, line 14. 1040ez forms 2014 Do not enter this amount on Form 1040, line 15b; Form 1040A, line 11b; or Form 1040NR, line 16b. 1040ez forms 2014 If you have qualified recovery assistance distributions as well as other distributions, you will need to multiply the amount on line 25 by a fraction. 1040ez forms 2014 The numerator of the fraction is your total qualified recovery assistance distributions and the denominator is the amount from Form 8606, line 21. 1040ez forms 2014 Enter the result in the white space in the bottom margin of the form under line 25. 1040ez forms 2014 To the left of this amount, enter “Qualified recovery assistance distributions” and also enter this amount on Form 8915, line 14. 1040ez forms 2014 Then, subtract this amount from the amount on line 25 and include the result on Form 1040, line 15b; Form 1040A, line 11b; or Form 1040NR, line 16b. 1040ez forms 2014 Also, enter this amount on Form 8606 under your qualified recovery assistance distributions. 1040ez forms 2014 To the left of this amount, enter “Other distributions. 1040ez forms 2014 ” Example 1. 1040ez forms 2014   On May 4, 2007, Margaret Maple lost her home due to the tornadoes on that day. 1040ez forms 2014 Her home was located in the Kansas disaster area. 1040ez forms 2014 On July 31, 2007, Margaret took out $30,000 from her 401(k) plan and an additional $15,000 from her traditional IRA in order to rebuild her home. 1040ez forms 2014 Margaret has not filed her 2007 return yet but would like to designate the $45,000 in distributions from her retirement plans as qualified recovery assistance distributions. 1040ez forms 2014 Since the distributions occurred in 2007, Margaret would modify and complete the 2005 Form 8915 as discussed on page 4. 1040ez forms 2014 Margaret would also need to complete Form 8606 since her distribution from her traditional IRA has nondeductible contributions from previous years. 1040ez forms 2014   In addition to the $15,000 qualified recovery assistance distribution on July 31, 2007, Margaret received an additional distribution of $15,000 from her traditional IRA on October 31, 2007, that she did not designate as a qualified recovery assistance distribution. 1040ez forms 2014 Because Margaret has a qualified recovery assistance distribution as well as a distribution not so designated, Margaret must allocate the amount on Form 8606, line 15 to both distributions, as discussed earlier. 1040ez forms 2014 Margaret's qualified recovery assistance distributions are $13,125 ($26,250 × $15,000 ÷ $30,000). 1040ez forms 2014 Margaret enters in the white space in the bottom margin of Form 8606, the following, “Qualified recovery assistance distributions $13,125. 1040ez forms 2014 ” This amount is then reported on Form 8915, line 13. 1040ez forms 2014 Below this
