SECTION 3. 1040ez free SCOPE SECTION 4. 1040ez free ELECTION PROCEDURES SECTION 5. 1040ez free REQUIRED INFORMATION STATEMENT SECTION 6. 1040ez free EFFECTIVE DATE SECTION 7. 1040ez free TRANSITION RULE SECTION 8. 1040ez free PAPERWORK REDUCTION ACT DRAFTING INFORMATION SECTION 1. 1040ez free PURPOSE . 1040ez free 01 This revenue procedure provides the exclusive procedures for taxpayers to make an election to defer recognizing discharge of indebtedness income (“COD income”) under § 108(i) of the Internal Revenue Code. 1040ez free . 1040ez free 02 This revenue procedure also requires taxpayers making the § 108(i) election to provide additional information on returns beginning with the taxable year following the taxable year for which the taxpayer makes the election. 1040ez free This revenue procedure describes the time and manner of providing this additional information. 1040ez free . 1040ez free 03 The Internal Revenue Service and Treasury Department intend to issue additional guidance under § 108(i) that may include regulations addressing matters in this revenue procedure. 1040ez free Taxpayers should be aware that these regulations may be retroactive. 1040ez free See § 7805(b)(2). 1040ez free This revenue procedure may be modified to provide procedures consistent with additional guidance. 1040ez free SECTION 2. 1040ez free BACKGROUND . 1040ez free 01 Section 108(i), Generally. 1040ez free Section 108(i) was added to the Code by § 1231 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Tax Act of 2009, Pub. 1040ez free L. 1040ez free No. 1040ez free 111-5, 123 Stat. 1040ez free 338. 1040ez free In general, § 108(i) provides that, at the election of a taxpayer, COD income realized in connection with a reacquisition after December 31, 2008, and before January 1, 2011, of an applicable debt instrument is includible in gross income ratably over a 5-taxable-year inclusion period, beginning with the taxpayer’s fourth or fifth taxable year following the taxable year of the reacquisition. 1040ez free Generally, if a taxpayer makes a § 108(i) election and reacquires (or is treated as reacquiring) the applicable debt instrument generating the COD income for a new debt instrument with original issue discount (“OID”), then interest deductions for this OID also are deferred, as provided in § 108(i)(2). 1040ez free The OID deferral rule, however, does not apply if the amount of OID is less than a de minimis amount, as determined under § 1273(a)(3) and § 1. 1040ez free 1273-1(d) of the Income Tax Regulations. 1040ez free The OID deferral rule in § 108(i)(2) applies at the entity level for a pass-through entity. 1040ez free For example, a partnership (and therefore its partners) may not deduct currently the OID described in § 108(i)(2)(A)(i). 1040ez free A taxpayer must take into account any item of income or deduction deferred under § 108(i), and not previously taken into account, in the taxable year in which certain events occur (such as the liquidation of the taxpayer and upon other events specified in administrative guidance). 1040ez free See § 108(i)(5)(D). 1040ez free The rule regarding acceleration of deferred COD income and OID deductions also applies in the case of certain dispositions by persons holding ownership interests in pass-through entities. 1040ez free Section 108(i)(5)(D)(ii). 1040ez free For purposes of § 108(i), regulated investment companies (as defined in § 851(a)) and real estate investment trusts (as defined in § 856(a)) are not pass-through entities. 1040ez free . 1040ez free 02 Applicable Debt Instrument. 1040ez free Section 108(i)(3)(A) defines the term “applicable debt instrument” to mean any debt instrument issued by a C corporation or by any other person in connection with the conduct of a trade or business by that person. 1040ez free The term “debt instrument” means any bond, debenture, note, certificate, or any other instrument or contractual arrangement constituting indebtedness within the meaning of § 1275(a)(1). 1040ez free Section 108(i)(3)(B). 1040ez free For purposes of § 108(i), in the case of an intercompany obligation (as defined in § 1. 1040ez free 1502-13(g)(2)(ii)), an applicable debt instrument includes only an instrument for which COD income is realized upon the instrument’s deemed satisfaction under § 1. 1040ez free 1502-13(g)(5). 1040ez free . 1040ez free 03 Reacquisition. 1040ez free Section 108(i)(4)(A) defines the term “reacquisition” to mean, with respect to any applicable debt instrument, any acquisition of the debt instrument by the debtor that issued (or is otherwise the obligor under) the debt instrument, or a person related to the debtor under § 108(e)(4). 1040ez free The term “acquisition” includes an acquisition of the debt instrument for cash or other property, the exchange of the debt instrument for another debt instrument (including an exchange resulting from a modification of the debt instrument), the exchange of the debt instrument for corporate stock or a partnership interest, the contribution of the debt instrument to capital, and the complete forgiveness of the indebtedness by the holder of the debt instrument. 1040ez free See § 108(i)(4)(B). 1040ez free The term “acquisition” also includes an indirect acquisition within the meaning of § 1. 1040ez free 108-2(c) if a direct acquisition of the debt instrument would qualify for an election under § 108(i). 1040ez free For example, if a corporation acquires debt of a partnership that the partnership issued in connection with its trade or business, and the partnership and corporation become related within six months of the corporation’s acquisition of the debt, the indirect acquisition is an acquisition for which an election under § 108(i) may be made. 1040ez free . 1040ez free 04 General Requirements for the Section 108(i) Election. 1040ez free Section 108(i)(5)(B) provides, in general, that a taxpayer makes the § 108(i) election by including a statement that clearly identifies the applicable debt instrument with the return of tax imposed for the taxable year in which the reacquisition of the instrument occurs. 1040ez free (For purposes of this revenue procedure, a return of tax or income tax return includes an information return, and a taxpayer includes a person that files an information return. 1040ez free ) The statement must include the amount of income to which § 108(i)(1) applies and other information the Service may prescribe. 1040ez free Once made, a § 108(i) election is irrevocable and, except as provided in section 7 of this revenue procedure, may not be modified. 1040ez free . 1040ez free 05 Section 108(i) Elections Made by Pass-through Entities. 1040ez free In the case of COD income realized by a pass-through entity from the reacquisition of an applicable debt instrument, the pass-through entity makes the § 108(i) election. 1040ez free Section 108(i)(5)(B)(iii). 1040ez free . 1040ez free 06 Additional Information on Subsequent Years’ Returns. 1040ez free Section 108(i)(7) authorizes the Service to issue guidance necessary or appropriate for applying § 108(i), including requiring reporting the election and other information on returns of tax for subsequent taxable years. 1040ez free . 1040ez free 07 Exclusivity. 1040ez free Section 108(i)(5)(C) provides that if a taxpayer elects to apply § 108(i) to an applicable debt instrument, § 108(a)(1)(A), (B), (C), and (D) do not apply to COD income deferred under § 108(i). 1040ez free . 1040ez free 08 Allocation of Deferred COD Income on Partnership Indebtedness. 1040ez free Section 4. 1040ez free 04(3) of this revenue procedure describes how a partnership may elect under § 108(i) to defer a portion of the COD income realized from the reacquisition of an applicable debt instrument. 1040ez free If a partnership elects to defer all or any portion of COD income realized from the reacquisition of an applicable debt instrument, all of the COD income with respect to that debt instrument, without regard to § 108(i), is allocated to the partners in the partnership immediately before the reacquisition in the manner in which the income would be included in the distributive shares of these partners under § 704 and the regulations thereunder, including § 1. 1040ez free 704-1(b)(2)(iii). 1040ez free Each partner’s share of this COD income is the partner’s COD income amount (“COD income amount”). 1040ez free The partner’s COD income amount that is deferred under § 108(i) is the partner’s deferred amount (“deferred amount”). 1040ez free The partner’s COD income amount that is not deferred and is included in the partner’s distributive share of partnership income for the taxable year of the partnership in which the reacquisition occurs is the partner’s included amount (“included amount”). 1040ez free . 1040ez free 09 Partner’s Deferred § 752 Amount. 1040ez free A decrease in a partner’s share of a partnership liability resulting from the reacquisition of an applicable debt instrument that is not treated as a current distribution of money to the partner under § 752 by reason of § 108(i)(6) is the partner’s deferred § 752 amount (“deferred § 752 amount”). 1040ez free A partner’s deferred § 752 amount may not exceed the lesser of (i) the partner’s deferred amount or (ii) gain that the partner would recognize in the year of reacquisition under § 731 as a result of the reacquisition absent § 108(i)(6). 1040ez free To determine the amount of gain the partner would recognize under clause (ii) of the preceding sentence, the amount of any deemed distribution of money under § 752(b) resulting from the decrease in the partner’s share of a reacquired applicable debt instrument that is treated as an advance or draw of money under § 1. 1040ez free 731-1(a)(1)(ii) is determined as if no COD income resulting from the reacquisition of the applicable debt instrument is deferred under § 108(i). 1040ez free See Rev. 1040ez free Rul. 1040ez free 92-97, 1992-2 C. 1040ez free B. 1040ez free 124, and Rev. 1040ez free Rul. 1040ez free 94-4, 1994-1 C. 1040ez free B. 1040ez free 195. 1040ez free A partner’s deferred § 752 amount is treated as a distribution of money to the partner under § 752 at the same time, and to the extent remaining in the same amount, as the partner recognizes the COD income deferred under § 108(i). 1040ez free . 1040ez free 10 Allocation of Deferred COD Income on S Corporation Indebtedness. 1040ez free For purposes of § 108(i), an S corporation’s COD income deferred under § 108(i) is shared pro rata only among those shareholders that are shareholders of the S corporation immediately before the reacquisition transaction. 1040ez free . 1040ez free 11 Deferred COD Income, Earnings and Profits, and Alternative Minimum Taxable Income. 1040ez free (1) In general. 1040ez free The Service and Treasury Department intend to issue regulations regarding the computation of a corporation’s earnings and profits with respect to COD income and OID deductions that are deferred under § 108(i). 1040ez free These regulations generally will provide that deferred COD income increases earnings and profits in the taxable year that it is realized and not in the taxable year or years that the deferred COD income is includible in gross income. 1040ez free OID deductions deferred under § 108(i) generally will decrease earnings and profits in the taxable year or years in which the deduction would be allowed without regard to § 108(i). 1040ez free COD income and OID deductions that are deferred increase or decrease adjusted current earnings under § 56(g)(4) in the taxable year or years that the income or deduction is includible or deductible in determining taxable income. 1040ez free See § 1. 1040ez free 56(g)-1(c)(1). 1040ez free (2) Exceptions for certain special status corporations. 1040ez free The Service and Treasury Department intend to issue regulations providing that in the case of regulated investment companies and real estate investment trusts, COD income deferred under § 108(i) generally increases earnings and profits in the taxable year or years in which the deferred COD income is includible in gross income and not in the year that the deferred COD income is realized. 1040ez free OID deductions deferred under § 108(i) generally decrease earnings and profits in the taxable year or years that the deferred OID deductions are deductible. 1040ez free . 1040ez free 12 Extension of Time to Make Election. 1040ez free Under § 301. 1040ez free 9100-1 of the Procedure and Administration Regulations, the Service may grant an extension of time to make a regulatory election. 1040ez free An election is a regulatory election if the due date is prescribed by regulation or other published guidance of general applicability. 1040ez free Section 301. 1040ez free 9100-2(a) provides an automatic 12-month extension from the due date for making certain regulatory elections. 1040ez free SECTION 3. 1040ez free SCOPE This revenue procedure applies to taxpayers that realize COD income from a reacquisition after December 31, 2008, and before January 1, 2011, of an applicable debt instrument, as provided in § 108(i). 1040ez free SECTION 4. 1040ez free ELECTION PROCEDURES . 1040ez free 01 In General. 1040ez free (1) A taxpayer within the scope of this revenue procedure makes the § 108(i) election by— (a) Attaching a statement meeting the requirements of section 4. 1040ez free 05 of this revenue procedure to the taxpayer’s timely filed (including extensions) original federal income tax return for the taxable year in which the reacquisition of the applicable debt instrument occurs, and (b) If applicable, satisfying the additional requirements of section 4. 1040ez free 07, 4. 1040ez free 08, 4. 1040ez free 09, or 4. 1040ez free 10 of this revenue procedure. 1040ez free (2) The Service grants an automatic extension of 12 months from the due date prescribed in section 4. 1040ez free 01(1)(a) of this revenue procedure for making the § 108(i) election. 1040ez free The rules that apply to an automatic extension under § 301. 1040ez free 9100-2(a) apply to this automatic extension. 1040ez free . 1040ez free 02 Section 108(i) Elections Made by Members of Consolidated Groups. 1040ez free The common parent of a consolidated group makes the § 108(i) election on behalf of all members of the group. 1040ez free See § 1. 1040ez free 1502-77(a). 1040ez free . 1040ez free 03 Aggregation Rule. 1040ez free A taxpayer within the scope of this revenue procedure may treat two or more applicable debt instruments that are part of the same issue and that are reacquired during the same taxable year as one applicable debt instrument for purposes of this revenue procedure. 1040ez free A pass-through entity may not treat two or more applicable debt instruments as one applicable debt instrument under this section 4. 1040ez free 03 if the owners and their ownership interests in the pass-through entity immediately prior to the reacquisition of each applicable debt instrument are not identical. 1040ez free . 1040ez free 04 Partial Elections. 1040ez free (1) A taxpayer within the scope of this revenue procedure may make an election for any portion of COD income realized from the reacquisition of any applicable debt instrument. 1040ez free Thus, for example, if a taxpayer realizes $100 of COD income from the reacquisition of an applicable debt instrument, the taxpayer may elect under § 108(i)(1) to defer only $40 of the $100 of COD income. 1040ez free The taxpayer may exclude from income the portion of COD income that the taxpayer does not elect to defer under § 108(i) ($60 in this example) under § 108(a)(1)(A), (B), (C), or (D), if applicable. 1040ez free (2) A taxpayer is not required to make an election for the same portion of COD income arising from each applicable debt instrument that it reacquires, but may make an election for different portions of COD income arising from different applicable debt instruments (whether or not part of the same issue). 1040ez free Thus, for example, if a taxpayer realizes $100 of COD income from the reacquisition of an applicable debt instrument (Instrument A) and $100 of COD income from the reacquisition of a different applicable debt instrument (Instrument B), the taxpayer may elect to defer all or a portion of the COD income associated with Instrument A and none or a different portion of the COD income associated with Instrument B. 1040ez free (3) A partnership that elects to defer less than all of the COD income realized from the reacquisition of an applicable debt instrument may determine, in any manner, the portion, if any, of a partner’s COD income amount that is the partner’s deferred amount and the portion, if any, of a partner’s COD income amount that is the partner’s included amount. 1040ez free Thus, for example, one partner’s deferred amount may be zero while another partner’s deferred amount may equal that partner’s COD income amount (or any portion thereof). 1040ez free A partner may exclude from income the partner’s included amount under § 108(a)(1)(A), (B), (C), or (D), if applicable. 1040ez free The provisions of this section 4. 1040ez free 04(3) apply for purposes of § 108(i) only and are not intended as an interpretation of or a change to existing law under § 704. 1040ez free . 1040ez free 05 Contents of Election Statement. 1040ez free A statement meets the

deferred COD income; and (g) In cases in which a new debt instrument is issued or deemed issued in exchange for the applicable debt instrument (including exchanges under § 108(e)(4), § 108(i)(2)(B), and § 1. 1040ez free 1001-3), the issuer’s name, the issuer’s taxpayer identification number, if any, a general description of the new debt instrument and whether the new debt instrument has OID, and if the new debt instrument has OID, a schedule of the OID that the issuer expects to accrue each taxable year on the instrument and the amount of OID that the issuer expects to defer under § 108(i)(2)

debt instrument an amount greater than the amount identified in section 4. 1040ez free 05(2)(e) of this revenue procedure that the taxpayer elects to defer under § 108(i) in the event the Service subsequently concludes that the taxpayer understated the amount of COD income described in section 4. 1040ez free 05(2)(d) of this revenue procedure. 1040ez free This additional amount of COD income the taxpayer elects to defer may be described as the entire additional COD income, or as a percentage of any additional COD income. 1040ez free If the taxpayer is a partnership, the partnership must specify each partner’s share of the partnership’s additional COD income that would be deferred (the partner’s additional deferred amount), which the partnership may describe for each partner as the partner’s entire share of the partnership’s additional COD income or as a percentage of the partner’s share of the partnership’s additional COD income. 1040ez free If the taxpayer is an S corporation, the S corporation must specify each shareholder’s share of the S corporation’s additional COD income that would be deferred, which the S corporation may describe for each shareholder as the shareholder’s entire share of the S corporation’s additional COD income or as a percentage of the shareholder’s share of the S corporation’s additional COD income. 1040ez free In the case of partnerships and S corporations, the additional COD income and the portion of additional COD income that would be deferred are allocated or determined as provided in sections 2. 1040ez free 08, 2. 1040ez free 10 and, if applicable, 4. 1040ez free 04(3) of this revenue procedure, respectively, as if the additional COD income was realized. 1040ez free . 1040ez free 07 Additional Requirements for Certain Partnerships Making a § 108(i) Election. 1040ez free The rules of this section 4. 1040ez free 07 apply to partnerships other than partnerships described in section 4. 1040ez free 10 of this

This section explains what is a sale or trade. 1040ez free It also explains certain transactions and events that are treated as sales or trades. 1040ez free A sale is generally a transfer of property for money or a mortgage, note, or other promise to pay money. 1040ez free A trade is a transfer of property for other property or services and may be taxed in the same way as a sale. 1040ez free Sale and purchase. 1040ez free   Ordinarily, a transaction is not a trade when you voluntarily sell property for cash and immediately buy similar property to replace it. 1040ez free The sale and purchase are two separate transactions. 1040ez free But see Like-kind exchanges under Nontaxable Trades, later. 1040ez free Redemption of stock. 1040ez free   A redemption of stock is treated as a sale or trade and is subject to the capital gain or loss provisions unless the redemption is a dividend or other distribution on stock. 1040ez free Dividend versus sale or trade. 1040ez free   Whether a redemption is treated as a sale, trade, dividend, or other distribution depends on the circumstances in each case. 1040ez free Both direct and indirect ownership of stock will be considered. 1040ez free The redemption is treated as a sale or trade of stock if: The redemption is not essentially equivalent to a dividend (see chapter 8), There is a substantially disproportionate redemption of stock, There is a complete redemption of all the stock of the corporation owned by the shareholder, or The redemption is a distribution in partial liquidation of a corporation. 1040ez free Redemption or retirement of bonds. 1040ez free   A redemption or retirement of bonds or notes at their maturity is generally treated as a sale or trade. 1040ez free   In addition, a significant modification of a bond is treated as a trade of the original bond for a new bond. 1040ez free For details, see Regulations section 1. 1040ez free 1001-3. 1040ez free Surrender of stock. 1040ez free   A surrender of stock by a dominant shareholder who retains ownership of more than half of the corporation's voting shares is treated as a contribution to capital rather than as an immediate loss deductible from taxable income. 1040ez free The surrendering shareholder must reallocate his or her basis in the surrendered shares to the shares he or she retains. 1040ez free Worthless securities. 1040ez free    Stocks, stock rights, and bonds (other than those held for sale by a securities dealer) that became completely worthless during the tax year are treated as though they were sold on the last day of the tax year. 1040ez free This affects whether your capital loss is long term or short term. 1040ez free See Holding Period , later. 1040ez free   Worthless securities also include securities that you abandon after March 12, 2008. 1040ez free To abandon a security, you must permanently surrender and relinquish all rights in the security and receive no consideration in exchange for it. 1040ez free All the facts and circumstances determine whether the transaction is properly characterized as an abandonment or other type of transaction, such as an actual sale or exchange, contribution to capital, dividend, or gift. 1040ez free    If you are a cash basis taxpayer and make payments on a negotiable promissory note that you issued for stock that became worthless, you can deduct these payments as losses in the years you actually make the payments. 1040ez free Do not deduct them in the year the stock became worthless. 1040ez free How to report loss. 1040ez free    Report worthless securities in Part I or Part II, whichever applies, of Form 8949. 1040ez free In column (a), enter “Worthless. 1040ez free ”    Report your worthless securities transactions on Form 8949 with the correct box checked for these transactions. 1040ez free See Form 8949 and the Instructions for Form 8949. 1040ez free For more information on Form 8949 and Schedule D (Form 1040), see Reporting Capital Gains and Losses in chapter 16. 1040ez free See also Schedule D (Form 1040), Form 8949, and their separate instructions. 1040ez free Filing a claim for refund. 1040ez free   If you do not claim a loss for a worthless security on your original return for the year it becomes worthless, you can file a claim for a credit or refund due to the loss. 1040ez free You must use Form 1040X, Amended U. 1040ez free S. 1040ez free Individual Income Tax Return, to amend your return for the year the security became worthless. 1040ez free You must file it within 7 years from the date your original return for that year had to be filed, or 2 years from the date you paid the tax, whichever is later. 1040ez free For more information about filing a claim, see Amended Returns and Claims for Refund in chapter 1. 1040ez free How To Figure Gain or Loss You figure gain or loss on a sale or trade of property by comparing the amount you realize with the adjusted basis of the property. 1040ez free Gain. 1040ez free   If the amount you realize from a sale or trade is more than the adjusted basis of the property you transfer, the difference is a gain. 1040ez free Loss. 1040ez free   If the adjusted basis of the property you transfer is more than the amount you realize, the difference is a loss. 1040ez free Adjusted basis. 1040ez free   The adjusted basis of property is your original cost or other original basis properly adjusted (increased or decreased) for certain items. 1040ez free See chapter 13 for more information about determining the adjusted basis of property. 1040ez free Amount realized. 1040ez free   The amount you realize from a sale or trade of property is everything you receive for the property minus your expenses of sale (such as redemption fees, sales commissions, sales charges, or exit fees). 1040ez free Amount realized includes the money you receive plus the fair market value of any property or services you receive. 1040ez free If you received a note or other debt instrument for the property, see How To Figure Gain or Loss in chapter 4 of Publication 550 to figure the amount realized. 1040ez free If you finance the buyer's purchase of your property and the debt instrument does not provide for adequate stated interest, the unstated interest that you must report as ordinary income will reduce the amount realized from the sale. 1040ez free For more information, see Publication 537. 1040ez free Fair market value. 1040ez free   Fair market value is the price at which the property would change hands between a buyer and a seller, neither being forced to buy or sell and both having reasonable knowledge of all the relevant facts. 1040ez free Example. 1040ez free You trade A Company stock with an adjusted basis of $7,000 for B Company stock with a fair market value of $10,000, which is your amount realized. 1040ez free Your gain is $3,000 ($10,000 − $7,000). 1040ez free Debt paid off. 1040ez free    A debt against the property, or against you, that is paid off as a part of the transaction, or that is assumed by the buyer, must be included in the amount realized. 1040ez free This is true even if neither you nor the buyer is personally liable for the debt. 1040ez free For example, if you sell or trade property that is subject to a nonrecourse loan, the amount you realize generally includes the full amount of the note assumed by the buyer even if the amount of the note is more than the fair market value of the property. 1040ez free Example. 1040ez free You sell stock that you had pledged as security for a bank loan of $8,000. 1040ez free Your basis in the stock is $6,000. 1040ez free The buyer pays off your bank loan and pays you $20,000 in cash. 1040ez free The amount realized is $28,000 ($20,000 + $8,000). 1040ez free Your gain is $22,000 ($28,000 − $6,000). 1040ez free Payment of cash. 1040ez free   If you trade property and cash for other property, the amount you realize is the fair market value of the property you receive. 1040ez free Determine your gain or loss by subtracting the cash you pay plus the adjusted basis of the property you trade in from the amount you realize. 1040ez free If the result is a positive number, it is a gain. 1040ez free If the result is a negative number, it is a loss. 1040ez free No gain or loss. 1040ez free   You may have to use a basis for figuring gain that is different from the basis used for figuring loss. 1040ez free In this case, you may have neither a gain nor a loss. 1040ez free See Basis Other Than Cost in chapter 13. 1040ez free Nontaxable Trades This section discusses trades that generally do not result in a taxable gain or deductible loss. 1040ez free For more information on nontaxable trades, see chapter 1 of Publication 544. 1040ez free Like-kind exchanges. 1040ez free   If you trade business or investment property for other business or investment property of a like kind, you do not pay tax on any gain or deduct any loss until you sell or dispose of the property you receive. 1040ez free To be nontaxable, a trade must meet all six of the following conditions. 1040ez free The property must be business or investment property. 1040ez free You must hold both the property you trade and the property you receive for productive use in your trade or business or for investment. 1040ez free Neither property may be property used for personal purposes, such as your home or family car. 1040ez free The property must not be held primarily for sale. 1040ez free The property you trade and the property you receive must not be property you sell to customers, such as merchandise. 1040ez free The property must not be stocks, bonds, notes, choses in action, certificates of trust or beneficial interest, or other securities or evidences of indebtedness or interest, including partnership interests. 1040ez free However, see Special rules for mutual ditch, reservoir, or irrigation company stock, in chapter 4 of Publication 550 for an exception. 1040ez free Also, you can have a nontaxable trade of corporate stocks under a different rule, as discussed later. 1040ez free There must be a trade of like property. 1040ez free The trade of real estate for real estate, or personal property for similar personal property, is a trade of like property. 1040ez free The trade of an apartment house for a store building, or a panel truck for a pickup truck, is a trade of like property. 1040ez free The trade of a piece of machinery for a store building is not a trade of like property. 1040ez free Real property located in the United States and real property located outside the United States are not like property. 1040ez free Also, personal property used predominantly within the United States and personal property used predominantly outside the United States are not like property. 1040ez free The property to be received must be identified in writing within 45 days after the date you transfer the property given up in the trade. 1040ez free The property to be received must be received by the earlier of: The 180th day after the date on which you transfer the property given up in the trade, or The due date, including extensions, for your tax return for the year in which the transfer of the property given up occurs. 1040ez free    If you trade property with a related party in a like-kind exchange, a special rule may apply. 1040ez free See Related Party Transactions , later in this chapter. 1040ez free Also, see chapter 1 of Publication 544 for more information on exchanges of business property and special

because of the wash sale rules described in chapter 4 of Publication 550 under Wash Sales. 1040ez free   If you sell or trade at a loss property you acquired from a related party, you cannot recognize the loss that was not allowed to the related party. 1040ez free Example 1. 1040ez free Your brother sells you stock for $7,600. 1040ez free His cost basis is $10,000. 1040ez free Your brother cannot deduct the loss of $2,400. 1040ez free Later, you sell the same stock to an unrelated party for $10,500, realizing a gain of $2,900. 1040ez free Your reportable gain is $500 (the $2,900 gain minus the $2,400 loss not allowed to your brother). 1040ez free Example 2. 1040ez free If, in Example 1, you sold the stock for $6,900 instead of $10,500, your recognized loss is only $700 (your $7,600 basis

original issue discount (OID). 1040ez free This treatment applies to obligations with a fixed maturity date of not more than 1 year from the date of issue. 1040ez free   However, to the extent you previously included the discount in income, you do not have to include it in income again. 1040ez free See Discount on Short-Term Obligations in chapter 1 of Publication 550. 1040ez free Tax-exempt state and local government bonds. 1040ez free   If these bonds were originally issued at a discount before September 4, 1982, or you acquired them before March 2, 1984, treat your part of OID as tax-exempt interest. 1040ez free To figure your gain or loss on the sale or trade of these bonds, reduce the amount realized by your part of OID. 1040ez free   If the bonds were issued after September 3, 1982, and acquired after March 1, 1984, increase the adjusted basis by your part of OID to figure gain or loss. 1040ez free For more information on the basis of these bonds, see Discounted Debt Instruments in chapter 4 of Publication 550. 1040ez free   Any gain from market discount is usually taxable on disposition or redemption of tax-exempt bonds. 1040ez free If you bought the bonds before May 1, 1993, the gain from market discount is capital gain. 1040ez free If you bought the bonds after April 30, 1993, the gain is ordinary income. 1040ez free   You figure the market discount by subtracting the price you paid for the bond from the sum of the original issue price of the bond and the amount of accumulated OID from the date of issue that represented interest to any earlier holders. 1040ez free For more information, see Market Discount Bonds in chapter 1 of Publication 550. 1040ez free    A loss on the sale or other disposition of a tax-exempt state or local government

you. 1040ez free   If a state or local bond issued after June 8, 1980, is redeemed before it matures, the part of OID earned while you hold the bond is not taxable to you. 1040ez free However, you must report the unearned part of OID as a capital gain. 1040ez free Example. 1040ez free On July 2, 2002, the date of issue, you bought a 20-year, 6% municipal bond for $800. 1040ez free The face amount of the bond was $1,000. 1040ez free The $200 discount was OID. 1040ez free At the time the bond was issued, the issuer had no intention of redeeming it before it matured. 1040ez free The bond was callable at its face amount beginning 10 years after the issue date. 1040ez free The issuer redeemed the bond at the end of 11 years (July 2, 2013) for its face amount of $1,000 plus accrued annual interest of $60. 1040ez free The OID earned during the time you held the bond, $73, is not taxable. 1040ez free The $60 accrued annual interest also is not taxable. 1040ez free However, you must report the unearned part of OID ($127) as a capital gain. 1040ez free Long-term debt instruments issued after 1954 and before May 28, 1969 (or before July 2, 1982, if a government instrument). 1040ez free   If you sell, trade, or redeem for a gain one of these debt instruments, the part of your gain that is not more than your ratable share of the OID at the time of the sale or redemption is ordinary income. 1040ez free The rest of the gain is capital gain. 1040ez free If, however, there was an intention to call the debt instrument before maturity, all of your gain that is not more than the entire OID is treated as ordinary income at the time of the sale. 1040ez free This treatment of taxable gain also applies to corporate instruments issued after May 27, 1969, under a written commitment that was binding on May 27, 1969, and at all times thereafter. 1040ez free Long-term debt instruments issued after May 27, 1969 (or after July 1, 1982, if a government instrument). 1040ez free   If you hold one of these debt instruments, you must include a part of OID in your gross income each year you own the instrument. 1040ez free Your basis in that debt instrument is increased by the amount of OID that you have included in your gross income. 1040ez free See Original Issue Discount (OID) in chapter 7 for information about OID that you must report on your tax return. 1040ez free   If you sell or trade the debt instrument before maturity, your gain is a capital gain. 1040ez free However, if at the time the instrument was originally issued there was an intention to call it before its maturity, your gain generally is ordinary income to the extent of the entire OID reduced by any amounts of OID previously includible in your income. 1040ez free In this case, the rest of the gain is capital gain. 1040ez free Market discount bonds. 1040ez free   If the debt instrument has market discount and you chose to include the discount in income as it accrued, increase your basis in the debt instrument by the accrued discount to figure capital gain or loss on its disposition. 1040ez free If you did not choose to include the discount in income as it accrued, you must report gain as ordinary interest income up to the instrument's accrued market discount. 1040ez free The rest of the gain is capital gain. 1040ez free See Market Discount Bonds in chapter 1 of Publication 550. 1040ez free   A different rule applies to market discount bonds issued before July 19, 1984, and purchased by you before May 1, 1993. 1040ez free See Market discount bonds under Discounted Debt Instruments in chapter 4 of Publication 550. 1040ez free Retirement of debt instrument. 1040ez free   Any amount you receive on the retirement of a debt instrument is treated in the same way as if you

Long-term or short-term. 1040ez free   If you hold investment property more than 1 year, any capital gain or loss is a long-term capital gain or loss. 1040ez free If you hold the property 1 year or

property. 1040ez free The day you disposed of the property is part of your holding period. 1040ez free Example. 1040ez free If you bought investment property on February 6, 2012, and sold it on

period for shares bought by the bank or other agent, full shares are considered bought first and any fractional shares are considered bought last. 1040ez free Your holding period starts on the day after the bank's purchase date. 1040ez free If a share was bought over more than one purchase date, your holding period for that share is a split holding period. 1040ez free A part of the share is considered to have been bought on each date that stock was bought by the bank with the proceeds of available funds. 1040ez free Nontaxable trades. 1040ez free   If you acquire investment property in a trade for other investment property and your basis for the new property is determined, in whole or in part, by your basis in the old property, your holding period for the new property begins on the day following the date you acquired the old property. 1040ez free Property received as a gift. 1040ez free   If you receive a gift of property and your basis is determined by the donor's adjusted basis, your holding period is considered to have started on the same day the donor's holding period started. 1040ez free   If your basis is determined by the fair market value of the property, your holding period starts on the day after the date of the gift. 1040ez free Inherited property. 1040ez free   Generally, if you inherited investment property, your capital gain or loss on any later

counting on the day after you received title to it or on the day after you took possession of it and assumed the burdens and privileges of ownership, whichever happened first. 1040ez free However, taking delivery or possession of real property under an option agreement is not enough to start the holding period. 1040ez free The holding period cannot start until there is an actual contract of sale. 1040ez free The holding period of the seller cannot end before that time. 1040ez free Real property repossessed. 1040ez free   If you sell real property but keep a security interest in it, and then later repossess the property under the terms of the sales contract, your holding period for a later sale includes the period you held the property before the original sale and the period after

1040ez free Basis in bad debt required. 1040ez free    To deduct a bad debt, you must have a basis in it—that is, you must have already included the amount in your income or loaned out your cash. 1040ez free For example, you cannot claim a bad debt deduction for court-ordered child support not paid to you by your former spouse. 1040ez free If you are a cash method taxpayer (as most individuals are), you generally cannot take a bad debt deduction for unpaid salaries, wages, rents, fees, interest, dividends, and similar items. 1040ez free When deductible. 1040ez free   You can take a bad debt deduction only in the year the debt becomes worthless. 1040ez free You do not have to wait until a debt is due to determine whether it is worthless. 1040ez free A debt becomes worthless when there is no longer any chance that the amount owed will be paid. 1040ez free   It is not necessary to go to court if you can show that a judgment from the court would be uncollectible. 1040ez free You must only show that you have taken reasonable steps to collect the debt. 1040ez free Bankruptcy of your debtor is generally good evidence of the worthlessness of at least a part of an unsecured and unpreferred debt. 1040ez free How to report bad debts. 1040ez free    Deduct nonbusiness bad debts as short-term capital losses on Form 8949. 1040ez free    Make sure you report your bad debt(s) (and

efforts you made to collect the debt, and Why you decided the debt was worthless. 1040ez free For example, you could show that the borrower has declared bankruptcy, or that legal action to collect would probably not result in payment of any part of the debt. 1040ez free Filing a claim for refund. 1040ez free    If you do not deduct a bad debt on your original return for the year it becomes worthless, you can file a claim for a credit or refund due to the bad debt. 1040ez free To do this, use Form 1040X to amend your return for the year the debt became worthless. 1040ez free You must file it within 7 years from the date your original return for that year had to be filed, or 2 years from the date you paid the tax, whichever is later. 1040ez free For more information about filing a

substantially identical stock or securities in a fully taxable trade, Acquire a contract or option to buy substantially identical stock or securities, or Acquire substantially identical stock for your individual retirement account (IRA) or Roth IRA. 1040ez free If your loss was disallowed because of the wash sale rules, add the disallowed loss to the cost of the new stock or securities (except in (4) above). 1040ez free The result is your basis in the new stock or securities. 1040ez free This adjustment postpones the loss deduction until the disposition of the new stock or securities. 1040ez free Your holding period for the new stock or securities includes the holding period of the stock or securities sold. 1040ez free For more information, see Wash Sales, in chapter 4 of Publication 550.
