have a bad debt if you cannot collect money owed to you. 1040nr ez 2010 form A bad debt is either a business bad debt or a nonbusiness bad debt. 1040nr ez 2010 form This chapter discusses only business bad debts. 1040nr ez 2010 form Generally, a business bad debt is one that comes from operating your trade or business. 1040nr ez 2010 form You can deduct business bad debts on Schedule C (Form 1040) or your applicable business income tax return. 1040nr ez 2010 form All other bad debts are nonbusiness bad debts and are deductible only as short-term capital losses. 1040nr ez 2010 form

the worthlessness of a debt that was either: Created or acquired in your trade or business, or Closely related to your trade or business when it became partly or totally worthless. 1040nr ez 2010 form A debt is closely related to your trade or business if your primary motive for incurring the debt is business related. 1040nr ez 2010 form Bad debts of a corporation (other than an S corporation) are always business bad debts. 1040nr ez 2010 form Credit sales. 1040nr ez 2010 form   Business bad debts are mainly the result of credit sales to customers. 1040nr ez 2010 form Goods that have been sold, but not yet paid for, and services that have been performed, but not yet paid for, are recorded in your books as either accounts receivable or notes receivable. 1040nr ez 2010 form After a reasonable period of time, if you have tried to collect the amount due, but are unable to do so, the uncollectible part becomes a business bad debt. 1040nr ez 2010 form   Accounts or notes receivable valued at fair market value (FMV) when received are deductible only at that value, even though the FMV may be less than the face value. 1040nr ez 2010 form If you purchased an account receivable for less than its face value, and the receivable subsequently becomes worthless, the most you are allowed to deduct is the amount you paid to acquire it. 1040nr ez 2010 form    You can claim a business bad debt deduction only if the amount owed to you was previously included in gross income. 1040nr ez 2010 form This applies to amounts owed to you from all sources of taxable income, including sales, services, rents, and interest. 1040nr ez 2010 form Accrual method. 1040nr ez 2010 form   If you use the accrual method of accounting, you generally report income as you earn it. 1040nr ez 2010 form You can only claim a bad debt deduction for an uncollectible receivable if you have previously included the uncollectible amount in income. 1040nr ez 2010 form   If you qualify, you can use the nonaccrual-experience method of accounting discussed later. 1040nr ez 2010 form Under this method, you do not have to accrue income that, based on your experience, you do not expect to collect. 1040nr ez 2010 form Cash method. 1040nr ez 2010 form   If you use the cash method of accounting, you generally report income when you receive payment. 1040nr ez 2010 form You cannot claim a bad debt deduction for amounts owed to you because you never included those amounts in income. 1040nr ez 2010 form For example, a cash basis architect cannot claim a bad debt deduction if a client fails to pay the bill because the architect's fee was never included in income. 1040nr ez 2010 form Debts from a former business. 1040nr ez 2010 form   If you sell your business but retain its receivables, these debts are business debts because they arose out of your trade or business. 1040nr ez 2010 form If any of these receivables subsequently become worthless, the loss is still a business bad debt. 1040nr ez 2010 form Debt acquired from a decedent. 1040nr ez 2010 form   The character of a loss from debts of a business acquired from a decedent is determined in the same way as debts acquired on the purchase of a business. 1040nr ez 2010 form The executor of the decedent's estate treats any loss from the debts as a business bad debt if the debts were closely related to the decedent's trade or business when they became worthless. 1040nr ez 2010 form Otherwise, a loss from these debts becomes a nonbusiness bad debt for the decedent's estate. 1040nr ez 2010 form Liquidation. 1040nr ez 2010 form   If you liquidate your business and some of the accounts receivable that you retain become worthless, they become business bad debts. 1040nr ez 2010 form Types of Business Bad Debts Business bad debts may result from the following. 1040nr ez 2010 form Loans to clients and suppliers. 1040nr ez 2010 form   If you loan money to a client, supplier, employee, or distributor for a business reason and you are unable to collect the loan after attempting to do so, you have a business bad debt. 1040nr ez 2010 form Debts owed by political parties. 1040nr ez 2010 form   If a political party (or other organization that accepts contributions or spends money to influence elections) owes you money and the debt becomes worthless, you can claim a bad debt deduction only if all of the following requirements are met. 1040nr ez 2010 form You use the accrual method of accounting. 1040nr ez 2010 form The debt arose from the sale of goods or services in the ordinary course of your trade or business. 1040nr ez 2010 form More than 30% of your receivables accrued in the year of the sale were from sales to political parties. 1040nr ez 2010 form You made substantial and continuing efforts to collect on the debt. 1040nr ez 2010 form Loan or capital contribution. 1040nr ez 2010 form   You cannot claim a bad debt deduction for a loan you made to a corporation if, based on the facts and circumstances, the loan is actually a contribution to capital. 1040nr ez 2010 form Debts of an insolvent partner. 1040nr ez 2010 form   If your business partnership breaks up and one of your former partners becomes insolvent, you may have to pay more than your pro rata share of the partnership's debts. 1040nr ez 2010 form If you pay any part of the insolvent partner's share of the debts, you can claim a bad debt deduction for the amount you paid that is attributable to the insolvent partner's share. 1040nr ez 2010 form Business loan guarantee. 1040nr ez 2010 form   If you guarantee a debt that subsequently becomes worthless, the debt can qualify as a business bad debt if all the following requirements are met. 1040nr ez 2010 form You made the guarantee in the course of your trade or business. 1040nr ez 2010 form You have a legal duty to pay the debt. 1040nr ez 2010 form You made the guarantee before the debt became worthless. 1040nr ez 2010 form You meet this requirement if you reasonably expected you would not have to pay the debt without full reimbursement from the borrower. 1040nr ez 2010 form You received reasonable consideration for making the guarantee. 1040nr ez 2010 form You meet this requirement if you made the guarantee in accord with normal business practice or for a good faith business purpose. 1040nr ez 2010 form Example. 1040nr ez 2010 form Jane Zayne owns the Zayne Dress Company. 1040nr ez 2010 form She guaranteed payment of a $20,000 note for Elegant Fashions, a dress outlet. 1040nr ez 2010 form Elegant Fashions is one of Zayne's largest clients. 1040nr ez 2010 form Elegant Fashions later defaulted on the loan. 1040nr ez 2010 form As a result, Ms. 1040nr ez 2010 form Zayne paid the remaining balance of the loan in full to the bank. 1040nr ez 2010 form She can claim a business bad debt deduction only for the amount she paid, since her guarantee was made in the course of her trade or business for a good faith business purpose. 1040nr ez 2010 form She was motivated by the desire to retain one of her better clients and keep a sales outlet. 1040nr ez 2010 form Deductible in the year paid. 1040nr ez 2010 form   If you make a payment on a loan you guaranteed, you can deduct it in the year paid, unless you have rights against the borrower. 1040nr ez 2010 form Rights against a borrower. 1040nr ez 2010 form   When you make payment on a loan you guaranteed, you may have the right to take the place of the lender. 1040nr ez 2010 form The debt is then owed to you. 1040nr ez 2010 form If you have this right, or some other right to demand payment from the borrower, you cannot claim a bad debt deduction until these rights become partly or totally worthless. 1040nr ez 2010 form Joint debtor. 1040nr ez 2010 form   If two or more debtors jointly owe you money, your inability to collect from one does not enable you to deduct a proportionate amount as a bad debt. 1040nr ez 2010 form Sale of mortgaged property. 1040nr ez 2010 form   If mortgaged or pledged property is sold for less than the debt, the unpaid, uncollectible balance of the debt is a bad debt. 1040nr ez 2010 form When a Debt Becomes Worthless A debt becomes worthless when there is no longer any chance the amount owed will be paid. 1040nr ez 2010 form This may occur when the debt is due or prior to that date. 1040nr ez 2010 form To demonstrate worthlessness, you must only show that you have taken reasonable steps to collect the debt but were unable to do so. 1040nr ez 2010 form It is not necessary to go to court if you can show that a judgment from the court would be uncollectible. 1040nr ez 2010 form Bankruptcy of your debtor is generally good evidence of the worthlessness of at least a part of an unsecured and unpreferred debt. 1040nr ez 2010 form Property received for debt. 1040nr ez 2010 form   If you receive property in partial settlement of a debt, reduce the debt by the property's FMV, which becomes the property's basis. 1040nr ez 2010 form You can deduct the remaining debt as a bad debt if and when it becomes worthless. 1040nr ez 2010 form   If you later sell the property for more than its basis, any gain on the sale is due to the appreciation of the property. 1040nr ez 2010 form It is not a recovery of a bad debt. 1040nr ez 2010 form For information on the sale of an asset, see Publication 544. 1040nr ez 2010 form How To Claim a Business Bad Debt There are two methods to claim a business bad debt. 1040nr ez 2010 form The specific charge-off method. 1040nr ez 2010 form The nonaccrual-experience method. 1040nr ez 2010 form Generally, you must use the specific charge-off method. 1040nr ez 2010 form However, you may use the nonaccrual-experience method if you meet the requirements discussed later under Nonaccrual-Experience Method . 1040nr ez 2010 form Specific Charge-Off Method If you use the specific charge-off method, you can deduct specific business bad debts that become either partly or totally worthless during the tax year. 1040nr ez 2010 form However, with respect to partly worthless bad debts, your deduction is limited to the amount you charged off on your books during the year. 1040nr ez 2010 form Partly worthless debts. 1040nr ez 2010 form   You can deduct specific bad debts that become partly uncollectible during the tax year. 1040nr ez 2010 form Your tax deduction is limited to the amount you charge off on your books during the year. 1040nr ez 2010 form You do not have to charge off and deduct your partly worthless debts annually. 1040nr ez 2010 form You can delay the charge off until a later year. 1040nr ez 2010 form However, you cannot deduct any part of a debt after the year it becomes totally worthless. 1040nr ez 2010 form Significantly modified debt. 1040nr ez 2010 form   An exception to the charge-off rule exists for debt which has been significantly modified and on which the holder recognized gain. 1040nr ez 2010 form For more information, see Regulations section 1. 1040nr ez 2010 form 166-3(a)(3). 1040nr ez 2010 form Deduction disallowed. 1040nr ez 2010 form   Generally, you can claim a partial bad debt deduction only in the year you make the charge-off on your books. 1040nr ez 2010 form If, under audit, the IRS does not allow your deduction and the debt becomes partly worthless in a later tax year, you can deduct the amount you charged off in that year plus the disallowed amount charged off in the earlier year. 1040nr ez 2010 form The charge-off in the earlier year, unless reversed on your books, fulfills the charge-off requirement for the later year. 1040nr ez 2010 form Totally worthless debts. 1040nr ez 2010 form   If a debt becomes totally worthless in the current tax year, you can deduct the entire amount, less any amount deducted in an earlier tax year when the debt was only partly worthless. 1040nr ez 2010 form   You do not have to make an actual charge-off on your books to claim a bad debt deduction for a totally worthless debt. 1040nr ez 2010 form However, you may want to do so. 1040nr ez 2010 form If you do not and the IRS later rules the debt is only partly worthless, you will not be allowed a deduction for the debt in that tax year because a deduction of a partly worthless bad debt is limited to the amount actually charged off. 1040nr ez 2010 form See Partly worthless debts, earlier. 1040nr ez 2010 form Filing a claim for refund. 1040nr ez 2010 form   If you did not deduct a bad debt on your original return for the year it became worthless, you can file a claim for a credit or refund. 1040nr ez 2010 form If the bad debt was totally worthless, you must file the claim by the later of the following dates. 1040nr ez 2010 form 7 years from the date your original return was due (not including extensions). 1040nr ez 2010 form 2 years from the date you paid the tax. 1040nr ez 2010 form   If the claim is for a partly worthless bad debt, you must file the claim by the later of the following dates. 1040nr ez 2010 form 3 years from the date you filed your original return. 1040nr ez 2010 form 2 years from the date you paid the tax. 1040nr ez 2010 form You may have longer to file the claim if you were unable to manage your financial affairs due to a physical or mental impairment. 1040nr ez 2010 form Such an impairment requires proof of existence. 1040nr ez 2010 form   For details and more information about filing a claim, see Publication 556. 1040nr ez 2010 form Use one of the following forms to file a claim. 1040nr ez 2010 form For more information, see the instructions for the applicable form. 1040nr ez 2010 form Table 10-1. 1040nr ez 2010 form Forms Used To File a Claim IF you filed as a. 1040nr ez 2010 form . 1040nr ez 2010 form . 1040nr ez 2010 form THEN file. 1040nr ez 2010 form . 1040nr ez 2010 form . 1040nr ez 2010 form Sole proprietor or farmer Form 1040X Corporation Form 1120X S corporation Form 1120S and check box H(4) Partnership Form 1065X if filing on paper or  Form 1065 and check box G(5) if filing electronically Nonaccrual-Experience Method If you use an accrual method of accounting and qualify under the rules explained in this section, you can use the nonaccrual-experience method for bad debts. 1040nr ez 2010 form Under this method, you do not accrue service related income you expect to be uncollectible. 1040nr ez 2010 form Because the expected uncollectible amounts are not included in income, these amounts are not later deducted from income. 1040nr ez 2010 form Generally, you can use the nonaccrual-experience method for accounts receivable for services you performed only if: The services are provided in the fields of accounting, actuarial science, architecture, consulting, engineering, health, law, or the performing arts, or You meet the $5 million gross receipts test for all prior years. 1040nr ez 2010 form Service related income. 1040nr ez 2010 form   You can use the nonaccrual-experience method only for amounts earned by performing services. 1040nr ez 2010 form You cannot use this method for amounts owed to you from activities such as lending money, selling goods, or acquiring receivables or other rights to receive payment. 1040nr ez 2010 form Gross receipts test. 1040nr ez 2010 form   To find out if you meet the $5 million gross receipts test for all prior years, you must figure the average annual gross receipts for each prior year. 1040nr ez 2010 form If your average annual gross receipts for any year exceeds $5 million, you cannot use the non-accural experience method. 1040nr ez 2010 form   The average annual gross receipts for any year is the average of gross receipts from the year in question and the 2 previous years. 1040nr ez 2010 form For example, if you were figuring the average annual gross receipts for 2013, you would average your gross receipts for 2011, 2012, and 2013. 1040nr ez 2010 form Interest or penalty charged. 1040nr ez 2010 form   Generally, you cannot use the nonaccrual-experience method for amounts due on which you charge interest or a late payment penalty. 1040nr ez 2010 form However, do not treat a discount offered for early payment as the charging of interest or a penalty if both the following apply. 1040nr ez 2010 form You otherwise accrue the full amount due as gross income at the time you provide the services. 1040nr ez 2010 form You treat the discount allowed for early payment as an adjustment to gross income in the year of payment. 1040nr ez 2010 form Change in accounting method. 1040nr ez 2010 form   Generally, you must obtain consent to change to a nonaccrual-experience method (other than one of the safe harbor methods) or to change from one method to another. 1040nr ez 2010 form See Form 3115 and the Instructions for Form 3115 for more information. 1040nr ez 2010 form Recovery of a Bad Debt If you claim a deduction for a bad debt on your income tax return and later recover (collect) all or part of it, you may have to include all or part of the recovery in gross income. 1040nr ez 2010 form The amount you include is limited to the amount you actually deducted. 1040nr ez 2010 form However, you can exclude the amount deducted that did not reduce your tax. 1040nr ez 2010 form Report the recovery as “Other income” on the appropriate business form or schedule. 1040nr ez 2010 form See Recoveries in Publication 525 for more information. 1040nr ez 2010 form Net operating loss (NOL) carryover. 1040nr ez 2010 form   If a bad debt deduction increases an NOL carryover that has not expired before the beginning of the tax year in which the recovery takes place, you treat the deduction as having reduced your tax. 1040nr ez 2010 form A bad debt deduction that contributes to a NOL helps lower taxes in the year to which you carry the NOL. 1040nr ez 2010 form For more information about NOLs, see Publication 536. 1040nr ez 2010 form Also, see the Instructions for Form 1045, and the Instructions for Form 1139. 1040nr ez
