Fill out 1040ez See the Instructions for Schedule D (Form 1040) and the Instructions for Form 8949 for information on how to report the transaction. Fill out 1040ez Long and Short Term Where you report a capital gain or loss depends on how long you own the asset before you sell or exchange it. Fill out 1040ez The time you own an asset before disposing of it is the holding period. Fill out 1040ez If you received a Form 1099-B, (or substitute statement) box 1c may help you determine whether the gain or loss is short-term or long-term. Fill out 1040ez If you hold a capital asset 1 year or less, the gain or loss from its disposition is short term. Fill out 1040ez Report it in Part I of Form 8949 and/or Schedule D, as applicable.

Fill out 1040ez   Table 4-1. Fill out 1040ez Do I Have a Short-Term or Long-Term Gain or Loss? IF you hold the property. Fill out 1040ez . Fill out 1040ez . Fill out 1040ez  THEN you have a. Fill out 1040ez . Fill out 1040ez . Fill out 1040ez 1 year or less, Short-term capital gain or  loss. Fill out 1040ez More than 1 year, Long-term capital gain or  loss. Fill out 1040ez These distinctions are essential to correctly arrive at your net capital gain or loss. Fill out 1040ez Capital losses are allowed in full against capital gains plus up to $3,000 of ordinary income. Fill out 1040ez See Capital Gains Tax Rates, later. Fill out 1040ez Holding period. Fill out 1040ez   To figure if you held property longer than 1 year, start counting on the day following the day you acquired the property. Fill out 1040ez The day you disposed of the property is part of your holding period. Fill out 1040ez Example. Fill out 1040ez If you bought an asset on June 19, 2012, you should start counting on June 20, 2012. Fill out 1040ez If you sold the asset on June 19, 2013, your holding period is not longer than 1 year, but if you sold it on June 20, 2013, your holding period is longer than 1 year. Fill out 1040ez Patent property. Fill out 1040ez   If you dispose of patent property, you generally are considered to have held the property longer than 1 year, no matter how long you actually held it. Fill out 1040ez For more information, see Patents in chapter 2. Fill out 1040ez Inherited property. Fill out 1040ez   If you inherit property, you are considered to have held the property longer than 1 year, regardless of how long you actually held it. Fill out 1040ez Installment sale. Fill out 1040ez   The gain from an installment sale of an asset qualifying for long-term capital gain treatment in the year of sale continues to be long term in later tax years. Fill out 1040ez If it is short term in the year of sale, it continues to be short term when payments are received in later tax years. Fill out 1040ez    The date the installment payment is received determines the capital gains rate that should be applied not the date the asset was sold under an installment contract. Fill out 1040ez Nontaxable exchange. Fill out 1040ez   If you acquire an asset in exchange for another asset and your basis for the new asset is figured, in whole or in part, by using your basis in the old property, the holding period of the new property includes the holding period of the old property. Fill out 1040ez That is, it begins on the same day as your holding period for the old property. Fill out 1040ez Example. Fill out 1040ez You bought machinery on December 4, 2012. Fill out 1040ez On June 4, 2013, you traded this machinery for other machinery in a nontaxable exchange. Fill out 1040ez On December 5, 2013, you sold the machinery you got in the exchange. Fill out 1040ez Your holding period for this machinery began on December 5, 2012. Fill out 1040ez Therefore, you held it longer than 1 year. Fill out 1040ez Corporate liquidation. Fill out 1040ez   The holding period for property you receive in a liquidation generally starts on the day after you receive it if gain or loss is recognized. Fill out 1040ez Profit-sharing plan. Fill out 1040ez   The holding period of common stock withdrawn from a qualified contributory profit-sharing plan begins on the day following the day the plan trustee delivered the stock to the transfer agent with instructions to reissue the stock in your name. Fill out 1040ez Gift. Fill out 1040ez   If you receive a gift of property and your basis in it is figured using the donor's basis, your holding period includes the donor's holding period. Fill out 1040ez For more information on basis, see Publication 551, Basis of Assets. Fill out 1040ez Real property. Fill out 1040ez   To figure how long you held real property, start counting on the day after you received title to it or, if earlier, the day after you took possession of it and assumed the burdens and privileges of ownership. Fill out 1040ez   However, taking possession of real property under an option agreement is not enough to start the holding period. Fill out 1040ez The holding period cannot start until there is an actual contract of sale. Fill out 1040ez The holding period of the seller cannot end before that time. Fill out 1040ez Repossession. Fill out 1040ez   If you sell real property but keep a security interest in it and then later repossess it, your holding period for a later sale includes the period you held the property before the original sale, as well as the period after the repossession. Fill out 1040ez Your holding period does not include the time between the original sale and the repossession. Fill out 1040ez That is, it does not include the period during which the first buyer held the property. Fill out 1040ez Nonbusiness bad debts. Fill out 1040ez   Nonbusiness bad debts are short-term capital losses. Fill out 1040ez For information on nonbusiness bad debts, see chapter 4 of Publication 550. Fill out 1040ez    Net Gain or Loss The totals for short-term capital gains and losses and the totals for long-term capital gains and losses must be figured separately. Fill out 1040ez Net short-term capital gain or loss. Fill out 1040ez   Combine your short-term capital gains and losses, including your share of short-term capital gains or losses from partnerships, S corporations, and fiduciaries and any short-term capital loss carryover. Fill out 1040ez Do this by adding all your short-term capital gains. Fill out 1040ez Then add all your short-term capital losses. Fill out 1040ez Subtract the lesser total from the other. Fill out 1040ez The result is your net short-term capital gain or loss. Fill out 1040ez Net long-term capital gain or loss. Fill out 1040ez   Follow the same steps to combine your long-term capital gains and losses. Fill out 1040ez Include the following items. Fill out 1040ez Net section 1231 gain from Part I, Form 4797, after any adjustment for nonrecaptured section 1231 losses from prior tax years. Fill out 1040ez Capital gain distributions from regulated investment companies (mutual funds) and real estate investment trusts. Fill out 1040ez Your share of long-term capital gains or losses from partnerships, S corporations, and fiduciaries. Fill out 1040ez Any long-term capital loss carryover. Fill out 1040ez The result from combining these items with other long-term capital gains and losses is your net long-term capital gain or loss. Fill out 1040ez Net gain. Fill out 1040ez   If the total of your capital gains is more than the total of your capital losses, the difference is taxable. Fill out 1040ez Different tax rates may apply to the part that is a net capital gain. Fill out 1040ez See Capital Gains Tax Rates, later. Fill out 1040ez Net loss. Fill out 1040ez   If the total of your capital losses is more than the total of your capital gains, the difference is deductible. Fill out 1040ez But there are limits on how much loss you can deduct and when you can deduct it. Fill out 1040ez See Treatment of Capital Losses, next. Fill out 1040ez    Treatment of Capital Losses If your capital losses are more than your capital gains, you can deduct the difference as a capital loss deduction even if you do not have ordinary income to offset it. Fill out 1040ez The yearly limit on the amount of the capital loss you can deduct is $3,000 ($1,500 if you are married and file a separate return). Fill out 1040ez Table 4-2. Fill out 1040ez Holding Period for Different Types of Acquisitions Type of acquisition: When your holding period starts: Stocks and bonds bought on a securities market Day after trading date you bought security. Fill out 1040ez Ends on trading date you sold security. Fill out 1040ez U. Fill out 1040ez S. Fill out 1040ez Treasury notes and bonds If bought at auction, day after notification of bid acceptance. Fill out 1040ez If bought through subscription, day after subscription was submitted. Fill out 1040ez Nontaxable exchanges Day after date you acquired old property. Fill out 1040ez Gift If your basis is giver's adjusted basis, same day as giver's holding period began. Fill out 1040ez If your basis is FMV, day after date of gift. Fill out 1040ez Real property bought Generally, day after date you received title to the property. Fill out 1040ez Real property repossessed Day after date you originally received title to the property, but does not include time between the original sale and date of repossession. Fill out 1040ez Capital loss carryover. Fill out 1040ez   Generally, you have a capital loss carryover if either of the following situations applies to you. Fill out 1040ez Your net loss is more than the yearly limit. Fill out 1040ez Your taxable income without your deduction for exemptions is less than zero. Fill out 1040ez If either of these situations applies to you for 2013, see Capital Losses under Reporting Capital Gains and Losses in chapter 4 of Publication 550 to figure the amount you can carryover to 2014. Fill out 1040ez Example. Fill out 1040ez Bob and Gloria Sampson sold property in 2013. Fill out 1040ez The sale resulted in a capital loss of $7,000. Fill out 1040ez The Sampsons had no other capital transactions. Fill out 1040ez On their joint 2013 return, the Sampsons deduct $3,000, the yearly limit. Fill out 1040ez They had taxable income of $2,000. Fill out 1040ez The unused part of the loss, $4,000 ($7,000 − $3,000), is carried over to 2014. Fill out 1040ez If the Sampsons' capital loss had been $2,000, it would not have been more than the yearly limit. Fill out 1040ez Their capital loss deduction would have been $2,000. Fill out 1040ez They would have no carryover to 2014. Fill out 1040ez Short-term and long-term losses. Fill out 1040ez   When you carry over a loss, it retains its original character as either long term or short term. Fill out 1040ez A short-term loss you carry over to the next tax year is added to short-term losses occurring in that year. Fill out 1040ez A long-term loss you carry over to the next tax year is added to long-term losses occurring in that year. Fill out 1040ez A long-term capital loss you carry over to the next year reduces that year's long-term gains before its short-term gains. Fill out 1040ez   If you have both short-term and long-term losses, your short-term losses are used first against your allowable capital loss deduction. Fill out 1040ez If, after using your short-term losses, you have not reached the limit on the capital loss deduction, use your long-term losses until you reach the limit. Fill out 1040ez To figure your capital loss carryover from 2013 to 2014 use the Capital Loss Carryover Worksheet in the 2013 Instructions for Schedule D (Form 1040). Fill out 1040ez Joint and separate returns. Fill out 1040ez   On a joint return, the capital gains and losses of spouses are figured as the gains and losses of an individual. Fill out 1040ez If you are married and filing a separate return, your yearly capital loss deduction is limited to $1,500. Fill out 1040ez Neither you nor your spouse can deduct any part of the other's loss. Fill out 1040ez   If you and your spouse once filed separate returns and are now filing a joint return, combine your separate capital loss carryovers. Fill out 1040ez However, if you and your spouse once filed jointly and are now filing separately, any capital loss carryover from the joint return can be deducted only on the return of the spouse who actually had the loss. Fill out 1040ez Death of taxpayer. Fill out 1040ez   Capital losses cannot be carried over after a taxpayer's death. Fill out 1040ez They are deductible only on the final income tax return filed on the decedent's behalf. Fill out 1040ez The yearly limit discussed earlier still applies in this situation. Fill out 1040ez Even if the loss is greater than the limit, the decedent's estate cannot deduct the difference or carry it over to following years. Fill out 1040ez Corporations. Fill out 1040ez   A corporation can deduct capital losses only up to the amount of its capital gains. Fill out 1040ez In other words, if a corporation has a net capital loss, it cannot be deducted in the current tax year. Fill out 1040ez It must be carried to other tax years and deducted from capital gains occurring in those years. Fill out 1040ez For more information, see Publication 542. Fill out 1040ez Capital Gains Tax Rates The tax rates that apply to a net capital gain are generally lower than the tax rates that apply to other income. Fill out 1040ez These lower rates are called the maximum capital gains rates. Fill out 1040ez The term “net capital gain” means the amount by which your net long-term capital gain for the year is more than your net short-term capital loss. Fill out 1040ez For 2013, the maximum tax rates for individuals are 0%, 15%, 20%, 25%, and 28%. Fill out 1040ez Also, individuals, use the Qualified Dividends and Capital Gain Worksheet in the Instructions for Form 1040, or the Schedule D Tax Computation Worksheet in the Instructions for Schedule D (Form 1040) (whichever applies) to figure your tax if you have qualified dividends or net capital gain. Fill out 1040ez For more information, see chapter 4 of Publication 550. Fill out 1040ez Also see the Instructions for Schedule D (Form 1040). Fill out 1040ez Unrecaptured section 1250 gain. Fill out 1040ez   Generally, this is the part of any long-term capital gain on section 1250 property (real property) that is due to depreciation. Fill out 1040ez Unrecaptured section 1250 gain cannot be more than the net section 1231 gain or include any gain otherwise treated as ordinary income. Fill out 1040ez Use the worksheet in the Schedule D instructions to figure your unrecaptured section 1250 gain. Fill out 1040ez For more information about section 1250 property and net section 1231 gain, see chapter 3. Fill out 1040ez Form 4797 Use Form 4797 to report: The sale or exchange of: Property used in your trade or business; Depreciable and amortizable property; Oil, gas, geothermal, or other mineral properties; and Section 126 property. Fill out 1040ez The involuntary conversion (from other than casualty or theft) of property used in your trade or business and capital assets held in connection with a trade or business or a transaction entered into for profit. Fill out 1040ez The disposition of noncapital assets (other than inventory or property held primarily for sale to customers in the ordinary course of your trade or business). Fill out 1040ez The disposition of capital assets not reported on Schedule D. Fill out 1040ez The gain or loss (including any related recapture) for partners and S corporation shareholders from certain section 179 property dispositions by partnerships (other than electing large partnerships) and S corporations. Fill out 1040ez The computation of recapture amounts under sections 179 and 280F(b)(2) when the business use of section 179 or listed property decreases to 50% or less. Fill out 1040ez Gains or losses treated as ordinary gains or losses, if you are a trader in securities or commodities and made a mark-to-market election under Internal Revenue Code section 475(f). Fill out 1040ez You can use Form 4797 with Form 1040, 1065, 1120, or 1120S. Fill out 1040ez Section 1231 gains and losses. Fill out 1040ez   Show any section 1231 gains and losses in Part I. Fill out 1040ez Carry a net gain to Schedule D (Form 1040) as a long-term capital gain. Fill out 1040ez Carry a net loss to Part II of Form 4797 as an ordinary loss. Fill out 1040ez   If you had any nonrecaptured net section 1231 losses from the preceding 5 tax years, reduce your net gain by those losses and report the amount of the reduction as an ordinary gain in Part II. Fill out 1040ez Report any remaining gain on Schedule D (Form 1040). Fill out 1040ez See Section 1231 Gains and Losses in chapter 3. Fill out 1040ez Ordinary gains and losses. Fill out 1040ez   Show any ordinary gains and losses in Part II. Fill out 1040ez This includes a net loss or a recapture of losses from prior years figured in Part I of Form 4797. Fill out 1040ez It also includes ordinary gain figured in Part III. Fill out 1040ez Mark-to-market election. Fill out 1040ez   If you made a mark-to-market election, you should report all gains and losses from trading as ordinary gains and losses in Part II of Form 4797, instead of as capital gains and losses on Form 8949 and Schedule D (Form 1040). Fill out 1040ez See the Instructions for Form 4797. Fill out 1040ez Also see Special Rules for Traders in Securities, in chapter 4 of Publication 550.
