and SuggestionsOrdering forms and publications. 1040nr Tax questions. 1040nr How To Get Tax HelpLow Income Taxpayer Clinics (LITCs). 1040nr Losses Generally, you may deduct losses to your home, household goods, and motor vehicles on your federal income tax return. 1040nr However, you may not deduct a casualty or theft loss that is covered by insurance unless you filed a timely insurance claim for reimbursement. 1040nr Any reimbursement you receive will reduce the loss. 1040nr If you did not file an insurance claim, you may deduct only the part of the loss that was not covered by insurance. 1040nr Amount of loss. 1040nr You figure the amount of your loss using the following steps. 1040nr Determine your cost or other basis in the property before the casualty or theft. 1040nr Determine the decrease in fair market value (FMV) of the property as a result of the casualty or theft. 1040nr (The decrease in FMV is the difference between the property's value immediately before and immediately after the casualty or theft. 1040nr ) From the smaller of the amounts you determined in (1) and (2), subtract any insurance or other reimbursement you received or expect to receive. 1040nr Apply the deduction limits, discussed later, to determine the amount of your deductible loss. 1040nr Cost or other basis. 1040nr Cost or other basis usually means original cost plus improvements. 1040nr If you did not acquire the property by purchasing it, your basis is determined as discussed in Publication 551, Basis of Assets. 1040nr If you inherited the property from someone who died in 2010, and the executor of the decedent's estate made the election to file Form 8939, refer to the information provided by the executor or see Publication 4895, Tax Treatment of Property Acquired From a Decedent Dying in 2010. 1040nr Fair market value. 1040nr FMV is the price for which you could sell your property to a willing buyer, when neither of you has to sell or buy and both of you know all the relevant facts. 1040nr When filling out Schedules 1 through 20, you need to know the FMV of the property immediately before and immediately after the disaster, casualty, or theft. 1040nr Separate computations. 1040nr Generally, if a single casualty or theft involves more than one item of property, you must figure the loss on each item separately. 1040nr Then combine the losses to determine the total loss from that casualty or theft. 1040nr Exception for personal-use real property. 1040nr In figuring a casualty loss on personal-use real property, the entire property (including any improvements, such as buildings, trees, and shrubs) is treated as one item. 1040nr Figure the loss using the smaller of the following. 1040nr The decrease in FMV of the entire property. 1040nr The adjusted basis of the entire property. 1040nr Deduction limits. 1040nr After you have figured the amount of your loss, as discussed earlier, you must figure how much of the loss you can deduct. 1040nr You do this on Form 4684, section A. 1040nr If the loss was to property for your personal use or your family's, there are two limits on the amount you can deduct for your casualty or theft loss. 1040nr You must reduce each casualty or theft loss by $100 ($100 rule). 1040nr You must further reduce the total of all your losses by 10% of your adjusted gross income (10% rule). 1040nr More information. 1040nr For more information about the deduction limits, see Publication 547. 1040nr When your loss is deductible. 1040nr You can generally deduct a casualty or disaster area loss only in the tax year in which the casualty or disaster occurred. 1040nr You can generally deduct a theft loss only in the year you discovered your property was stolen. 1040nr However, you can choose to deduct disaster area losses on your return for the year immediately before the year of the disaster if the President has declared your area a federal disaster area. 1040nr For details, see Disaster Area Losses in Publication 547. 1040nr Comments and Suggestions We welcome your comments about this publication and your suggestions for future editions. 1040nr You can write to us at the following

Withdrawal of Cycle C Cash Balance Applications
Cycle C determination letter applicants who intend to adopt a pre-approved cash balance plan may withdraw their applications for individually designed cash balance plans by May 31, 2014, if they sign Form 8905, Certification of Intent to Adopt a Pre-approved Plan, by March 31, 2014.
Announcement 2014-4 extended the submission period for pre-approved defined benefit pension plans from January 31, 2014, to February 2, 2015, to allow time for the IRS to expand the pre-approved program to permit plans with cash balance features. The announcement also allowed Cycle C plan sponsors who want to adopt a pre-approved cash balance plan to complete Form 8905 by March 31, 2014, instead of submitting determination letter applications for individually designed plans by the Cycle C deadline of January 31, 2014.
Withdrawals for Cycle C applicants
Cycle C applicants who already submitted their applications for individually-designed cash balance plans during the second Cycle C remedial amendment cycle that ended January 31, 2014, and who instead wish to adopt a pre-approved cash balance plan, may sign the Form 8905, withdraw the application, and request a refund of the user fee by complying with the instructions below.
How to request a withdrawal and user fee refund
