Online and Home Shopping

Late delivery, shipment of wrong or damaged items, and hidden costs are common home shopping complaints. To avoid problems and resolve them more easily, follow the advice in the "Before You Buy" checklist In addition:

  • Be wary of post office boxes and sellers in other countries. It may be difficult to find the seller to resolve a problem later.
  • Know the total price. Make sure it includes all charges, shipping, handling, insurance and taxes. Coupons and other discounts should be properly deducted.
  • Make sure you are clear on what you are buying. Watch for words like "refurbished," "reconditioned," "close-out," or "discontinued."
  • The security code on the back of your card offers you extra protections on online purchases.
  • Keep a record of your purchase. Save any information the seller gives you such as product description, delivery date, cancellation policy, privacy policy, warranties, and order confirmation numbers.
  • Keep track of your order. If it's late, you have the right to cancel and demand a refund.

Online and Group Coupons

In addition to the traditional coupons found in newspapers, coupons can also be found online. Online coupons come in a variety of forms; they can be found on manufacturers’ websites and on dedicated coupon websites. Coupons are also available on social media websites for becoming a fan of a product, or for sharing your email address with the company.
Group coupons are another online saving tool. Here’s how they work: local companies offer reduced prices for things like spa services, gourmet meals, and outdoor adventures through a third party company. If interested, you pay the third party company to take advantage of the deal. Group coupons allow you to try new experiences, by reducing the trial cost. Before you purchase a group coupon, ask yourself “Am I really going to use this?” If the answer is “no”, don’t buy it. Read the terms and conditions of all coupons for expiration dates or use limitations.

The 2010 Form 1040 Ez

2010 form 1040 ez 2. 2010 form 1040 ez   Foreclosures and Repossessions Table of Contents Amount realized and ordinary income on a recourse debt. 2010 form 1040 ez Amount realized on a nonrecourse debt. 2010 form 1040 ez If you do not make payments you owe on a loan secured by property, the lender may foreclose on the loan or repossess the property. 2010 form 1040 ez The foreclosure or repossession is treated as a sale from which you may realize gain or loss. 2010 form 1040 ez This is true even if you voluntarily return the property to the lender. 2010 form 1040 ez If the outstanding loan balance was more than the FMV of the property and the lender cancels all or part of the remaining loan balance, you also may realize ordinary income from the cancellation of debt. 2010 form 1040 ez You must report this income on your return unless certain exceptions or exclusions apply. 2010 form 1040 ez See chapter 1 for more details. 2010 form 1040 ez Borrower's gain or loss. 2010 form 1040 ez    You figure and report gain or loss from a foreclosure or repossession in the same way as gain or loss from a sale. 2010 form 1040 ez The gain is the difference between the amount realized and your adjusted basis in the transferred property (amount realized minus adjusted basis). 2010 form 1040 ez The loss is the difference between your adjusted basis in the transferred property and the amount realized (adjusted basis minus amount realized). 2010 form 1040 ez For more information on figuring gain or loss from the sale of property, see Gain or Loss From Sales and Exchanges in Publication 544. 2010 form 1040 ez You can use Table 1-1 to figure your ordinary income from the cancellation of debt and your gain or loss from a foreclosure or repossession. 2010 form 1040 ez Amount realized and ordinary income on a recourse debt. 2010 form 1040 ez    If you are personally liable for the debt, the amount realized on the foreclosure or repossession includes the smaller of: The outstanding debt immediately before the transfer reduced by any amount for which you remain personally liable immediately after the transfer, or The FMV of the transferred property. 2010 form 1040 ez The amount realized also includes any proceeds you received from the foreclosure sale. 2010 form 1040 ez If the FMV of the transferred property is less than the total outstanding debt immediately before the transfer reduced by any amount for which you remain personally liable immediately after the transfer, the difference is ordinary income from the cancellation of debt. 2010 form 1040 ez You must report this income on your return unless certain exceptions or exclusions apply. 2010 form 1040 ez See chapter 1 for more details. 2010 form 1040 ez       Example 1. 2010 form 1040 ez Tara bought a new car for $15,000. 2010 form 1040 ez She made a $2,000 downpayment and borrowed the remaining $13,000 from the dealer's credit company. 2010 form 1040 ez Tara is personally liable for the loan (recourse debt) and the car is pledged as security for the loan. 2010 form 1040 ez On August 1, 2013, the credit company repossessed the car because Tara had stopped making loan payments. 2010 form 1040 ez The balance due after taking into account the payments Tara made was $10,000. 2010 form 1040 ez The FMV of the car when it was repossessed was $9,000. 2010 form 1040 ez On November 15, 2013, the credit company forgave the remaining $1,000 balance on the loan due to insufficient assets. 2010 form 1040 ez In this case, the amount Tara realizes is $9,000. 2010 form 1040 ez This is the smaller of: The $10,000 outstanding debt immediately before the repossession reduced by the $1,000 for which she remains personally liable immediately after the repossession ($10,000 − $1,000 = $9,000), or The $9,000 FMV of the car. 2010 form 1040 ez Tara figures her gain or loss on the repossession by comparing the $9,000 amount realized with her $15,000 adjusted basis. 2010 form 1040 ez She has a $6,000 nondeductible loss. 2010 form 1040 ez After the cancellation of the remaining balance on the loan in November, Tara also has ordinary income from cancellation of debt in the amount of $1,000 (the remaining balance on the $10,000 loan after the $9,000 amount satisfied by the FMV of the repossessed car). 2010 form 1040 ez Tara must report this $1,000 on her return unless one of the exceptions or exclusions described in chapter 1 applies. 2010 form 1040 ez Example 2. 2010 form 1040 ez Lili paid $200,000 for her home. 2010 form 1040 ez She made a $15,000 downpayment and borrowed the remaining $185,000 from a bank. 2010 form 1040 ez Lili is personally liable for the mortgage loan and the house secures the loan. 2010 form 1040 ez In 2013, the bank foreclosed on the mortgage because Lili stopped making payments. 2010 form 1040 ez When the bank foreclosed the mortgage, the balance due was $180,000, the FMV of the house was $170,000, and Lili's adjusted basis was $175,000 due to a casualty loss she had deducted. 2010 form 1040 ez At the time of the foreclosure, the bank forgave $2,000 of the $10,000 debt in excess of the FMV ($180,000 minus $170,000). 2010 form 1040 ez She remained personally liable for the $8,000 balance. 2010 form 1040 ez In this case, Lili has ordinary income from the cancellation of debt in the amount of $2,000. 2010 form 1040 ez The $2,000 income from the cancellation of debt is figured by subtracting the $170,000 FMV of the house from the $172,000 difference between her total outstanding debt immediately before the transfer of property and the amount for which she remains personally liable immediately after the transfer ($180,000 minus $8,000). 2010 form 1040 ez She is able to exclude the $2,000 of canceled debt from her income under the qualified principal residence indebtedness rules discussed earlier. 2010 form 1040 ez Lili must also determine her gain or loss from the foreclosure. 2010 form 1040 ez In this case, the amount that she realizes is $170,000. 2010 form 1040 ez This is the smaller of: (a) the $180,000 outstanding debt immediately before the transfer reduced by the $8,000 for which she remains personally liable immediately after the transfer ($180,000 − $8,000 = $172,000) or (b) the $170,000 FMV of the house. 2010 form 1040 ez Lili figures her gain or loss on the foreclosure by comparing the $170,000 amount realized with her $175,000 adjusted basis. 2010 form 1040 ez She has a $5,000 nondeductible loss. 2010 form 1040 ez Table 1-1. 2010 form 1040 ez Worksheet for Foreclosures and Repossessions Part 1. 2010 form 1040 ez Complete Part 1 only if you were personally liable for the debt (even if none of the debt was canceled). 2010 form 1040 ez Otherwise, go to Part 2. 2010 form

personally liable for repaying the debt secured by the transferred property, the amount you realize includes the full amount of the outstanding debt immediately before the transfer. 2010 form 1040 ez This is true even if the FMV of the property is less than the outstanding debt immediately before the transfer. 2010 form 1040 ez Example 1. 2010 form 1040 ez Tara bought a new car for $15,000. 2010 form 1040 ez She made a $2,000 downpayment and borrowed the remaining $13,000 from the dealer's credit company. 2010 form 1040 ez Tara is not personally liable for the loan (nonrecourse), but pledged

$10,000. 2010 form 1040 ez That is the outstanding amount of debt immediately before the repossession, even though the FMV of the car is less than $10,000. 2010 form 1040 ez Tara figures her gain or loss on the repossession by comparing the $10,000 amount realized with her $15,000 adjusted basis. 2010 form 1040 ez Tara has a $5,000 nondeductible loss. 2010 form 1040 ez Example 2. 2010 form 1040 ez Lili paid $200,000 for her home. 2010 form 1040 ez She made a $15,000 downpayment and borrowed the remaining $185,000 from a bank. 2010 form 1040 ez She is not personally liable for the loan, but grants the bank a mortgage. 2010 form 1040 ez The bank foreclosed on the mortgage because Lili stopped making payments. 2010 form 1040 ez When the bank foreclosed on the mortgage, the balance due was $180,000, the FMV of the house was $170,000, and Lili's adjusted basis was $175,000 due to a casualty loss she had deducted. 2010 form 1040 ez The amount Lili realized on the foreclosure is $180,000,

interest in your property in a foreclosure or repossession should send you Form 1099-A, Acquisition or Abandonment of Secured Property, showing information you need to figure your gain or loss. 2010 form 1040 ez However, if the lender also cancels part of your debt and must file Form 1099-C, the lender can include the information about the foreclosure or repossession on that form instead of on Form 1099-A. 2010 form 1040 ez 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
