The Amendment To Tax Return 2013

Amendment to tax return 2013 5. Amendment to tax return 2013   Personal Use of Dwelling Unit (Including Vacation Home) Table of Contents Dividing Expenses Dwelling Unit Used as a HomeMain home. Amendment to tax return 2013 Shared equity financing agreement. Amendment to tax return 2013 Donation of use of the property. Amendment to tax return 2013 Examples. Amendment to tax return 2013 Days used for repairs and maintenance. Amendment to tax return 2013 Days used as a main home before or after renting. Amendment to tax return 2013 Reporting Income and DeductionsNot used as a home. Amendment to tax return 2013 Used as a home but rented less than 15 days. Amendment to tax return 2013 Used as a home and rented 15 days or more. Amendment to tax return 2013 If you have any personal use of a dwelling unit (including a vacation home) that you rent, you must divide your expenses between rental use and personal use. Amendment to tax return 2013 In general, your rental expenses will be no more than your total expenses multiplied by a fraction; the denominator of which is the total number of days the dwelling unit is used and the numerator of which is the total number of days actually rented at a fair rental price. Amendment to tax return 2013 Only your rental expenses may deducted on Schedule E (Form 1040). Amendment to tax return 2013 Some of your personal expenses may be deductible if you itemize your deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040). Amendment to tax return 2013 You must also determine if the dwelling unit is considered a home. Amendment to tax return 2013 The amount of rental expenses that you can deduct may be limited if the dwelling unit is considered a home. Amendment to tax return 2013 Whether a dwelling unit is considered a home depends on how many days during the year are considered to be days of personal use. Amendment to tax return 2013 There is a special rule if you used the dwelling unit as a home and you rented it for less than 15 days during the year. Amendment to tax return 2013 Dwelling unit. Amendment to tax return 2013   A dwelling unit includes a house, apartment, condominium, mobile home, boat, vacation home, or similar property. Amendment to tax return 2013 It also includes all structures or other property belonging to the dwelling unit. Amendment to tax return 2013 A dwelling unit has basic living accommodations, such as sleeping space, a toilet, and cooking facilities. Amendment to tax return 2013   A dwelling unit does not include property (or part of the property) used solely as a hotel, motel, inn, or similar establishment. Amendment to tax return 2013 Property is used solely as a hotel, motel, inn, or similar establishment if it is regularly available for occupancy by paying customers and is not used by an owner as a home during the year. Amendment to tax return 2013 Example. Amendment to tax return 2013 You rent a room in your home that is always available for short-term occupancy by paying customers. Amendment to tax return 2013 You do not use the room yourself and you allow only paying customers to use the room. Amendment to tax return 2013 This room is used solely as a hotel, motel, inn, or similar establishment and is not a dwelling unit. Amendment to tax return 2013 Dividing Expenses If you use a dwelling unit for both rental and personal purposes, divide your expenses between the rental use and the personal use based on the number of days used for each purpose. Amendment to tax return 2013 When dividing your expenses, follow these rules. Amendment to tax return 2013 Any day that the unit is rented at a fair rental price is a day of rental use even if you used the unit for personal purposes that day. Amendment to tax return 2013 (This rule does not apply when determining whether you used the unit as a home. Amendment to tax return 2013 ) Any day that the unit is available for rent but not actually rented is not a day of rental use. Amendment to tax return 2013 Fair rental price. Amendment to tax return 2013   A fair rental price for your property generally is the amount of rent that a person who is not related to you would be willing to pay. Amendment to tax return 2013 The rent you charge is not a fair rental price if it is substantially less than the rents charged for other properties that are similar to your property in your area. Amendment to tax return 2013   Ask yourself the following questions when comparing another property with yours. Amendment to tax return 2013 Is it used for the same purpose? Is it approximately the same size? Is it in approximately the same condition? Does it have similar furnishings? Is it in a similar location? If any of the answers are no, the properties probably are not similar. Amendment to tax return 2013 Example. Amendment to tax return 2013 Your beach cottage was available for rent from June 1 through August 31 (92 days). Amendment to tax return 2013 Except for the first week in August (7 days), when you were unable to find a renter, you rented the cottage at a fair rental price during that time. Amendment to tax return 2013 The person who rented the cottage for July allowed you to use it over the weekend (2 days) without any reduction in or refund of rent. Amendment to tax return 2013 Your family also used the cottage during the last 2 weeks of May (14 days). Amendment to tax return 2013 The cottage was not used at all before May 17 or after August 31. Amendment to tax return 2013 You figure the part of the cottage expenses to treat as rental expenses as follows. Amendment to tax return 2013 The cottage was used for rental a total of 85 days (92 − 7). Amendment to tax return 2013 The days it was available for rent but not rented (7 days) are not days of rental use. Amendment to tax return 2013 The July weekend (2 days) you used it is rental use because you received a fair rental price for the weekend. Amendment to tax return 2013 You used the cottage for personal purposes for 14 days (the last 2 weeks in May). Amendment to tax return 2013 The total use of the cottage was 99 days (14 days personal use + 85 days rental use). Amendment to tax return 2013 Your rental expenses are 85/99 (86%) of the cottage expenses. Amendment to tax return 2013 Note. Amendment to tax return 2013 When determining whether you used the cottage as a home, the July weekend (2 days) you used it is considered personal use even though you received a fair rental price for the weekend. Amendment to tax return 2013 Therefore, you had 16 days of personal use and 83 days of rental use for this purpose. Amendment to tax return 2013 Because you used the cottage for personal purposes more than 14 days and more than 10% of the days of rental use (8 days), you used it as a home. Amendment to tax return 2013 If you have a net loss, you may not be able to deduct all of the rental expenses. Amendment to tax return 2013 See Dwelling Unit Used as a Home, next. Amendment to tax return 2013 Dwelling Unit Used as a Home If you use a dwelling unit for both rental and personal purposes, the tax treatment of the rental expenses you figured earlier under Dividing Expenses and rental income depends on whether you are considered to be using the dwelling unit as a home. Amendment to tax return 2013 You use a dwelling unit as a home during the tax year if you use it for personal purposes more than the greater of: 14 days, or 10% of the total days it is rented to others at a fair rental price. Amendment to tax return 2013 See What is a day of personal use , later. Amendment to tax return 2013 If a dwelling unit is used for personal purposes on a day it is rented at a fair rental price (discussed earlier), do not count that day as a day of rental use in applying (2) above. Amendment to tax return 2013 Instead, count it as a day of personal use in applying both (1) and (2) above. Amendment to tax return 2013 What is a day of personal use?   A day of personal use of a dwelling unit is any day that the unit is used by any of the following persons. Amendment to tax return 2013 You or any other person who owns an interest in it, unless you rent it to another owner as his or her main home under a shared equity financing agreement (defined later). Amendment to tax return 2013 However, see Days used as a main home before or after renting , later. Amendment to tax return 2013 A member of your family or a member of the family of any other person who owns an interest in it, unless the family member uses the dwelling unit as his or her main home and pays a fair rental price. Amendment to tax return 2013 Family includes only your spouse, brothers and sisters, half-brothers and half-sisters, ancestors (parents, grandparents, etc. Amendment to tax return 2013 ), and lineal descendants (children, grandchildren, etc. Amendment to tax return 2013 ). Amendment to tax return 2013 Anyone under an arrangement that lets you use some other dwelling unit. Amendment to tax return 2013 Anyone at less than a fair rental price. Amendment to tax return 2013 Main home. Amendment to tax return 2013   If the other person or member of the family in (1) or (2) above has more than one home, his or her main home is ordinarily the one he or she lived in most of the time. Amendment to tax return 2013 Shared equity financing agreement. Amendment to tax return 2013   This is an agreement under which two or more persons acquire undivided interests for more than 50 years in an entire dwelling unit, including the land, and one or more of the co-owners is entitled to occupy the unit as his or her main home upon payment of rent to the other co-owner or owners. Amendment to tax return 2013 Donation of use of the property. Amendment to tax return 2013   You use a dwelling unit for personal purposes if: You donate the use of the unit to a charitable organization, The organization sells the use of the unit at a fund-raising event, and The “purchaser” uses the unit. Amendment to tax return 2013 Examples. Amendment to tax return 2013   The following examples show how to determine if you have days of personal use. Amendment to tax return 2013 Example 1. Amendment to tax return 2013 You and your neighbor are co-owners of a condominium at the beach. Amendment to tax return 2013 Last year, you rented the unit to vacationers whenever possible. Amendment to tax return 2013 The unit was not used as a main home by anyone. Amendment to tax return 2013 Your neighbor used the unit for 2 weeks last year; you did not use it at all. Amendment to tax return 2013 Because your neighbor has an interest in the unit, both of you are considered to have used the unit for personal purposes during those 2 weeks. Amendment to tax return 2013 Example 2. Amendment to tax return 2013 You and your neighbors are co-owners of a house under a shared equity financing agreement. Amendment to tax return 2013 Your neighbors live in the house and pay you a fair rental price. Amendment to tax return 2013 Even though your neighbors have an interest in the house, the days your neighbors live there are not counted as days of personal use by you. Amendment to tax return 2013 This is because your neighbors rent the house as their main home under a shared equity financing agreement. Amendment to tax return 2013 Example 3. Amendment to tax return 2013 You own a rental property that you rent to your son. Amendment to tax return 2013 Your son does not own any interest in this property. Amendment to tax return 2013 He uses it as his main home and pays you a fair rental price. Amendment to tax return 2013 Your son's use of the property is not personal use by you because your son is using it as his main home, he owns no interest in the property, and he is paying you a fair rental price. Amendment to tax return 2013 Example 4. Amendment to tax return 2013 You rent your beach house to Rosa. Amendment to tax return 2013 Rosa rents her cabin in the mountains to you. Amendment to tax return 2013 You each pay a fair rental price. Amendment to tax return 2013 You are using your beach house for personal purposes on the days that Rosa uses it because your house is used by Rosa under an arrangement that allows you to use her cabin. Amendment to tax return 2013 Example 5. Amendment to tax return 2013 You rent an apartment to your mother at less than a fair rental price. Amendment to tax return 2013 You are using the apartment for personal purposes on the days that your mother rents it because you rent it for less than a fair rental price. Amendment to tax return 2013 Days used for repairs and maintenance. Amendment to tax return 2013   Any day that you spend working substantially full time repairing and maintaining (not improving) your property is not counted as a day of personal use. Amendment to tax return 2013 Do not count such a day as a day of personal use even if family members use the property for recreational purposes on the same day. Amendment to tax return 2013 Example. Amendment to tax return 2013 Corey owns a cabin in the mountains that he rents for most of the year. Amendment to tax return 2013 He spends a week at the cabin with family members. Amendment to tax return 2013 Corey works on maintenance of the cabin 3 or 4 hours each day during the week and spends the rest of the time fishing, hiking, and relaxing. Amendment to tax return 2013 Corey's family members, however, work substantially full time on the cabin each day during the week. Amendment to tax return 2013 The main purpose of being at the cabin that week is to do maintenance work. Amendment to tax return 2013 Therefore, the use of the cabin during the week by Corey and his family will not be considered personal use by Corey. Amendment to tax return 2013 Days used as a main home before or after renting. Amendment to tax return 2013   For purposes of determining whether a dwelling unit was used as a home, you may not have to count days you used the property as your main home before or after renting it or offering it for rent as days of personal use. Amendment to tax return 2013 Do not count them as days of personal use if: You rented or tried to rent the property for 12 or more consecutive months. Amendment to tax return 2013 You rented or tried to rent the property for a period of less than 12 consecutive months and the period ended because you sold or exchanged the property. Amendment to tax return 2013 However, this special rule does not apply when dividing expenses between rental and personal use. Amendment to tax return 2013 See Property Changed to Rental Use in chapter 4. Amendment to tax return 2013 Example 1. Amendment to tax return 2013 On February 29, 2012, you moved out of the house you had lived in for 6 years because you accepted a job in another town. Amendment to tax return 2013 You rented your house at a fair rental price from March 15, 2012, to May 14, 2013 (14 months). Amendment to tax return 2013 On June 1, 2013, you moved back into your old house. Amendment to tax return 2013 The days you used the house as your main home from January 1 to February 29, 2012, and from June 1 to December 31, 2013, are not counted as days of personal use. Amendment to tax return 2013 Therefore, you would use the rules in chapter 1 when figuring your rental income and expenses. Amendment to tax return 2013 Example 2. Amendment to tax return 2013 On January 31, you moved out of the condominium where you had lived for 3 years. Amendment to tax return 2013 You offered it for rent at a fair rental price beginning on February 1. Amendment to tax return 2013 You were unable to rent it until April. Amendment to tax return 2013 On September 15, you sold the condominium. Amendment to tax return 2013 The days you used the condominium as your main home from January 1 to January 31 are not counted as days of personal use when determining whether you used it as a home. Amendment to tax return 2013 Examples. Amendment to tax return 2013   The following examples show how to determine whether you used your rental property as a home. Amendment to tax return 2013 Example 1. Amendment to tax return 2013 You converted the basement of your home into an apartment with a bedroom, a bathroom, and a small kitchen. Amendment to tax return 2013 You rented the basement apartment at a fair rental price to college students during the regular school year. Amendment to tax return 2013 You rented to them on a 9-month lease (273 days). Amendment to tax return 2013 You figured 10% of the total days rented to others at a fair rental price is 27 days. Amendment to tax return 2013 During June (30 days), your brothers stayed with you and lived in the basement apartment rent free. Amendment to tax return 2013 Your basement apartment was used as a home because you used it for personal purposes for 30 days. Amendment to tax return 2013 Rent-free use by your brothers is considered personal use. Amendment to tax return 2013 Your personal use (30 days) is more than the greater of 14 days or 10% of the total days it was rented (27 days). Amendment to tax return 2013 Example 2. Amendment to tax return 2013 You rented the guest bedroom in your home at a fair rental price during the local college's homecoming, commencement, and football weekends (a total of 27 days). Amendment to tax return 2013 Your sister-in-law stayed in the room, rent free, for the last 3 weeks (21 days) in July. Amendment to tax return 2013 You figured 10% of the total days rented to others at a fair rental price is 3 days. Amendment to tax return 2013 The room was used as a home because you used it for personal purposes for 21 days. Amendment to tax return 2013 That is more than the greater of 14 days or 10% of the 27 days it was rented (3 days). Amendment to tax return 2013 Example 3. Amendment to tax return 2013 You own a condominium apartment in a resort area. Amendment to tax return 2013 You rented it at a fair rental price for a total of 170 days during the year. Amendment to tax return 2013 For 12 of these days, the tenant was not able to use the apartment and allowed you to use it even though you did not refund any of the rent. Amendment to tax return 2013 Your family actually used the apartment for 10 of those days. Amendment to tax return 2013 Therefore, the apartment is treated as having been rented for 160 (170 – 10) days. Amendment to tax return 2013 You figured 10% of the total days rented to others at a fair rental price is 16 days. Amendment to tax return 2013 Your family also used the apartment for 7 other days during the year. Amendment to tax return 2013 You used the apartment as a home because you used it for personal purposes for 17 days. Amendment to tax return 2013 That is more than the greater of 14 days or 10% of the 160 days it was rented (16 days). Amendment to tax return 2013 Minimal rental use. Amendment to tax return 2013   If you use the dwelling unit as a home and you rent it less than 15 days during the year, that period is not treated as rental activity. Amendment to tax return 2013 See Used as a home but rented less than 15 days, later, for more information. Amendment to tax return 2013 Limit on deductions. Amendment to tax return 2013   Renting a dwelling unit that is considered a home is not a passive activity. Amendment to tax return 2013 Instead, if your rental expenses are more than your rental income, some or all of the excess expenses cannot be used to offset income from other sources. Amendment to tax return 2013 The excess expenses that cannot be used to offset income from other sources are carried forward to the next year and treated as rental expenses for the same property. Amendment to tax return 2013 Any expenses carried forward to the next year will be subject to any limits that apply for that year. Amendment to tax return 2013 This limitation will apply to expenses carried forward to another year even if you do not use the property as your home for that subsequent year. Amendment to tax return 2013   To figure your deductible rental expenses for this year and any carryover to next year, use Worksheet 5–1. Amendment to tax return 2013 Reporting Income and Deductions Property not used for personal purposes. Amendment to tax return 2013   If you do not use a dwelling unit for personal purposes, see chapter 3 for how to report your rental income and expenses. Amendment to tax return 2013 Property used for personal purposes. Amendment to tax return 2013   If you do use a dwelling unit for personal purposes, then how you report your rental income and expenses depends on whether you used the dwelling unit as a home. Amendment to tax return 2013 Not used as a home. Amendment to tax return 2013   If you use a dwelling unit for personal purposes, but not as a home, report all the rental income in your income. Amendment to tax return 2013 Since you used the dwelling unit for personal purposes, you must divide your expenses between the rental use and the personal use as described earlier in this chapter under Dividing Expenses . Amendment to tax return 2013 The expenses for personal use are not deductible as rental expenses. Amendment to tax return 2013   Your deductible rental expenses can be more than your gross rental income; however, see Limits on Rental Losses in chapter 3. Amendment to tax return 2013 Used as a home but rented less than 15 days. Amendment to tax return 2013   If you use a dwelling unit as a home and you rent it less than 15 days during the year, its primary function is not considered to be rental and it should not be reported on Schedule E (Form 1040). Amendment to tax return 2013 You are not required to report the rental income and rental expenses from this activity. Amendment to tax return 2013 The expenses, including qualified mortgage interest, property taxes, and any qualified casualty loss will be reported as normally allowed on Schedule A (Form 1040). Amendment to tax return 2013 See the Instructions for Schedule A (Form 1040) for more information on deducting these expenses. Amendment to tax return 2013 Used as a home and rented 15 days or more. Amendment to tax return 2013   If you use a dwelling unit as a home and rent it 15 days or more during the year, include all your rental income in your income. Amendment to tax return 2013 Since you used the dwelling unit for personal purposes, you must divide your expenses between the rental use and the personal use as described earlier in this chapter under Dividing Expenses . Amendment to tax return 2013 The expenses for personal use are not deductible as rental expenses. Amendment to tax return 2013   If you had a net profit from renting the dwelling unit for the year (that is, if your rental income is more than the total of your rental expenses, including depreciation), deduct all of your rental expenses. Amendment to tax return 2013 You do not need to use Worksheet 5-1. Amendment to tax return 2013   However, if you had a net loss from renting the dwelling unit for the year, your deduction for certain rental expenses is limited. Amendment to tax return 2013 To figure your deductible rental expenses and any carryover to next year, use Worksheet 5–1. Amendment to tax return 2013 Worksheet 5-1.
