The Amending My Tax Return

Amending my tax return 3. Amending my tax return   Gifts Table of Contents If you give gifts in the course of your trade or business, you can deduct all or part of the cost. Amending my tax return This chapter explains the limits and rules for deducting the costs of gifts. Amending my tax return $25 limit. Amending my tax return   You can deduct no more than $25 for business gifts you give directly or indirectly to each person during your tax year. Amending my tax return A gift to a company that is intended for the eventual personal use or benefit of a particular person or a limited class of people will be considered an indirect gift to that particular person or to the individuals within that class of people who receive the gift. Amending my tax return   If you give a gift to a member of a customer's family, the gift is generally considered to be an indirect gift to the customer. Amending my tax return This rule does not apply if you have a bona fide, independent business connection with that family member and the gift is not intended for the customer's eventual use. Amending my tax return   If you and your spouse both give gifts, both of you are treated as one taxpayer. Amending my tax return It does not matter whether you have separate businesses, are separately employed, or whether each of you has an independent connection with the recipient. Amending my tax return If a partnership gives gifts, the partnership and the partners are treated as one taxpayer. Amending my tax return Example. Amending my tax return Bob Jones sells products to Local Company. Amending my tax return He and his wife, Jan, gave Local Company three gourmet gift baskets to thank them for their business. Amending my tax return They paid $80 for each gift basket, or $240 total. Amending my tax return Three of Local Company's executives took the gift baskets home for their families' use. Amending my tax return Bob and Jan have no independent business relationship with any of the executives' other family members. Amending my tax return They can deduct a total of $75 ($25 limit × 3) for the gift baskets. Amending my tax return Incidental costs. Amending my tax return   Incidental costs, such as engraving on jewelry, or packaging, insuring, and mailing, are generally not included in determining the cost of a gift for purposes of the $25 limit. Amending my tax return   A cost is incidental only if it does not add substantial value to the gift. Amending my tax return For example, the cost of gift wrapping is an incidental cost. Amending my tax return However, the purchase of an ornamental basket for packaging fruit is not an incidental cost if the value of the basket is substantial compared to the value of the fruit. Amending my tax return Exceptions. Amending my tax return   The following items are not considered gifts for purposes of the $25 limit. Amending my tax return An item that costs $4 or less and: Has your name clearly and permanently imprinted on the gift, and Is one of a number of identical items you widely distribute. Amending my tax return Examples include pens, desk sets, and plastic bags and cases. Amending my tax return Signs, display racks, or other promotional material to be used on the business premises of the recipient. Amending my tax return    Figure B.

Amending my tax return However, if you give a customer packaged food or beverages you intend the customer to use at a later date, treat it as a gift. Amending my tax return    If you give a customer tickets to a theater performance or sporting event and you do not go with the customer to the performance or event, you have a choice. Amending my tax return You can treat the cost of the tickets as either a gift expense or an entertainment expense, whichever is to your advantage.

Amending my tax return Generally, an amended return must be filed within 3 years from the date the original return was filed or within 2 years from the time the tax was paid, whichever is later.
