Form 1040 es Benefits of Recordkeeping Everyone in business, including farmers, must keep appropriate records. Form 1040 es Recordkeeping will help you do the following. Form 1040 es Monitor the progress of your farming business. Form 1040 es   You need records to monitor the progress of your farming business. Form 1040 es Records can show whether your business is improving, which items are selling, or what changes you need to make. Form 1040 es Records can help you make better decisions that may increase the likelihood of business success. Form 1040 es Prepare your financial statements. Form 1040 es   You need records to prepare accurate financial statements. Form 1040 es These include income (profit and loss) statements and balance sheets. Form 1040 es These statements can help you in dealing with your bank or creditors and help you to manage your farm business. Form 1040 es Identify source of receipts. Form 1040 es   You will receive money or property from many sources. Form 1040 es Your records can identify the source of your receipts. Form 1040 es You need this information to separate farm from nonfarm receipts and taxable from nontaxable income. Form 1040 es Keep track of deductible expenses. Form 1040 es   You may forget expenses when you prepare your tax return unless you record them when they occur. Form 1040 es Prepare your tax returns. Form 1040 es   You need records to prepare your tax return. Form 1040 es For example, your records must support the income, expenses, and credits you report. Form 1040 es Generally, these are the same records you use to monitor your farming business and prepare your financial statements. Form 1040 es Support items reported on tax returns. Form 1040 es   You must keep your business records available at all times for inspection by the IRS. Form 1040 es If the IRS examines any of your tax returns, you may be asked to explain the items reported. Form 1040 es A complete set of records will speed up the examination. Form 1040 es Kinds of Records To Keep Except in a few cases, the law does not require any specific kind of records. Form 1040 es You can choose any recordkeeping system suited to your farming business that clearly shows, for example, your income and expenses. Form 1040 es You should set up your recordkeeping system using an accounting method that clearly shows your income for your tax year. Form 1040 es See  chapter 2. Form 1040 es If you are in more than one business, you should keep a complete and separate set of records for each business. Form 1040 es A corporation should keep minutes of board of directors' meetings. Form 1040 es Your recordkeeping system should include a summary of your business transactions. Form 1040 es This summary is ordinarily made in accounting journals and ledgers. Form 1040 es For example, they must show your gross income, as well as your deductions and credits. Form 1040 es In addition, you must keep supporting documents. Form 1040 es Purchases, sales, payroll, and other transactions you have in your business generate supporting documents such as invoices and receipts. Form 1040 es These documents contain the information you need to record in your journals and ledgers. Form 1040 es It is important to keep these documents because they support the entries in your journals and ledgers and on your tax return. Form 1040 es Keep them in an orderly fashion and in a safe place. Form 1040 es For instance, organize them by year and type of income or expense. Form 1040 es Electronic records. Form 1040 es   All requirements that apply to hard copy books and records also apply to electronic storage systems that maintain tax books and records. Form 1040 es When you replace hard copy books and records, you must maintain the electronic storage systems for as long as they are material to the administration of tax law. Form 1040 es An electronic storage system is any system for preparing or keeping your records either by electronic imaging or by transfer to an electronic storage media. Form 1040 es The electronic storage system must index, store, preserve, retrieve and reproduce the electronically stored books and records in legible format. Form 1040 es All electronic storage systems must provide a complete and accurate record of your data that is accessible to the IRS. Form 1040 es Electronic storage systems are also subject to the same controls and retention guidelines as those imposed on your original hard copy books and records. Form 1040 es The original hard copy books and records may be destroyed provided that the electronic storage system has been tested to establish that the hard copy books and records are being reproduced in compliance with IRS requirements for an electronic storage system and procedures are established to ensure continued compliance with all applicable rules and regulations. Form 1040 es You still have the responsibility of retaining any other books and records that are required to be retained. Form 1040 es The IRS may test your electronic storage system, including the equipment used, indexing methodology, software and retrieval capabilities. Form 1040 es This test is not considered an examination and the results must be shared with you. Form 1040 es If your electronic storage system meets the requirements mentioned earlier, you will be in compliance. Form 1040 es If not, you may be subject to penalties for non-compliance, unless you continue to maintain your original hard copybooks and records in a manner that allows you and the IRS to determine your correct tax.
