Free tax filing for low income families A sale is generally a transfer of property for money or a mortgage, note, or other promise to pay money.

Free tax filing for low income families   Ordinarily, a transaction is not a trade when you voluntarily sell property for cash and immediately buy similar property to replace it. Free tax filing for low income families The sale and purchase are two separate transactions. Free tax filing for low income families But see Like-kind exchanges under Nontaxable Trades, later. Free tax filing for low income families Redemption of stock. Free tax filing for low income families   A redemption of stock is treated as a sale or trade and is subject to the capital gain or loss provisions unless the redemption is a dividend or other distribution on stock. Free tax filing for low income families Dividend versus sale or trade. Free tax filing for low income families   Whether a redemption is treated as a sale, trade, dividend, or other distribution depends on the circumstances in each case. Free tax filing for low income families Both direct and indirect ownership of stock will be considered. Free tax filing for low income families The redemption is treated as a sale or trade of stock if: The redemption is not essentially equivalent to a dividend (see chapter 8), There is a substantially disproportionate redemption of stock, There is a complete redemption of all the stock of the corporation owned by the shareholder, or The redemption is a distribution in partial liquidation of a corporation.

Free tax filing for low income families Worthless securities. Free tax filing for low income families    Stocks, stock rights, and bonds (other than those held for sale by a securities dealer) that became completely worthless during the tax year are treated as though they were sold on the last day of the tax year. Free tax filing for low income families This affects whether your capital loss is long term or short term. Free tax filing for low income families See Holding Period , later. Free tax filing for low income families   Worthless securities also include securities that you abandon after March 12, 2008. Free tax filing for low income families To abandon a security, you must permanently surrender and relinquish all rights in the security and receive no consideration in exchange for it. Free tax filing for low income families All the facts and circumstances determine whether the transaction is properly characterized as an abandonment or other type of transaction, such as an actual sale or exchange, contribution to capital, dividend, or gift. Free tax filing for low income families    If you are a cash basis taxpayer and make payments on a negotiable promissory note that you issued for stock that became worthless, you can deduct these payments as losses in the years you actually make the payments.

Free tax filing for low income families For more information about filing a claim, see Amended Returns and Claims for Refund in chapter 1. Free tax filing for low income families How To Figure Gain or Loss You figure gain or loss on a sale or trade of property by comparing the amount you realize with the adjusted basis of the property. Free tax filing for low income families Gain. Free tax filing for low income families   If the amount you realize from a sale or trade is more than the adjusted basis of the property you transfer, the difference is a gain. Free tax filing for low income families Loss. Free tax filing for low income families   If the adjusted basis of the property you transfer is more than the amount you realize, the difference is a loss. Free tax filing for low income families Adjusted basis. Free tax filing for low income families   The adjusted basis of property is your original cost or other original basis properly adjusted (increased or decreased) for certain items. Free tax filing for low income families See chapter 13 for more information about determining the adjusted basis of property. Free tax filing for low income families Amount realized. Free tax filing for low income families   The amount you realize from a sale or trade of property is everything you receive for the property minus your expenses of sale (such as redemption fees, sales commissions, sales charges, or exit fees). Free tax filing for low income families Amount realized includes the money you receive plus the fair market value of any property or services you receive. Free tax filing for low income families If you received a note or other debt instrument for the property, see How To Figure Gain or Loss in chapter 4 of Publication 550 to figure the amount realized. Free tax filing for low income families If you finance the buyer's purchase of your property and the debt instrument does not provide for adequate stated interest, the unstated interest that you must report as ordinary income will reduce the amount realized from the sale. Free tax filing for low income families For more information, see Publication 537. Free tax filing for low income families Fair market value. Free tax filing for low income families   Fair market value is the price at which the property would change hands between a buyer and a seller, neither being forced to buy or sell and both having reasonable knowledge of all the relevant facts. Free tax filing for low income families Example. Free tax filing for low income families You trade A Company stock with an adjusted basis of $7,000 for B Company stock with a fair market value of $10,000, which is your amount realized. Free tax filing for low income families Your gain is $3,000 ($10,000 − $7,000). Free tax filing for low income families Debt paid off. Free tax filing for low income families    A debt against the property, or against you, that is paid off as a part of the transaction, or that is assumed by the buyer, must be included in the amount realized. Free tax filing for low income families This is true even if neither you nor the buyer is personally liable for the debt. Free tax filing for low income families For example, if you sell or trade property that is subject to a nonrecourse loan, the amount you realize generally includes the full amount of the note assumed by the buyer even if the amount of the note is more than the fair market value of the property. Free tax filing for low income families Example. Free tax filing for low income families You sell stock that you had pledged as security for a bank loan of $8,000. Free tax filing for low income families Your basis in the stock is $6,000. Free tax filing for low income families The buyer pays off your bank loan and pays you $20,000 in cash. Free tax filing for low income families The amount realized is $28,000 ($20,000 + $8,000). Free tax filing for low income families Your gain is $22,000 ($28,000 − $6,000). Free tax filing for low income families Payment of cash. Free tax filing for low income families   If you trade property and cash for other property, the amount you realize is the fair market value of the property you receive. Free tax filing for low income families Determine your gain or loss by subtracting the cash you pay plus the adjusted basis of the property you trade in from the amount you realize. Free tax filing for low income families If the result is a positive number, it is a gain. Free tax filing for low income families If the result is a negative number, it is a loss. Free tax filing for low income families No gain or loss. Free tax filing for low income families   You may have to use a basis for figuring gain that is different from the basis used for figuring loss. Free tax filing for low income families In this case, you may have neither a gain nor a loss. Free tax filing for low income families See Basis Other Than Cost in chapter 13. Free tax filing for low income families Nontaxable Trades This section discusses trades that generally do not result in a taxable gain or deductible loss. Free tax filing for low income families For more information on nontaxable trades, see chapter 1 of Publication 544. Free tax filing for low income families Like-kind exchanges.

Free tax filing for low income families However, see Special rules for mutual ditch, reservoir, or irrigation company stock, in chapter 4 of Publication 550 for an exception.

Free tax filing for low income families You cannot deduct a loss. Free tax filing for low income families Like property and unlike property transferred. Free tax filing for low income families   If you give up unlike property in addition to the like property, you must recognize gain or loss on the unlike property you give up.

Free tax filing for low income families Like property and money transferred. Free tax filing for low income families   If all of the above conditions (1) – (6) are met, you have a nontaxable trade even if you pay money in addition to the like property.

Free tax filing for low income families   The following trades of corporate stocks generally do not result in a taxable gain or a deductible loss. Free tax filing for low income families Corporate reorganizations. Free tax filing for low income families   In some instances, a company will give you common stock for preferred stock, preferred stock for common stock, or stock in one corporation for stock in another corporation. Free tax filing for low income families If this is a result of a merger, recapitalization, transfer to a controlled corporation, bankruptcy, corporate division, corporate acquisition, or other corporate reorganization, you do not recognize gain or loss. Free tax filing for low income families Stock for stock of the same corporation. Free tax filing for low income families   You can exchange common stock for common stock or preferred stock for preferred stock in the same corporation without having a recognized gain or loss. Free tax filing for low income families This is true for a trade between two stockholders as well as a trade between a stockholder and the corporation.

Free tax filing for low income families   If you transfer property to a corporation solely in exchange for stock in that corporation, and immediately after the trade you are in control of the corporation, you ordinarily will not recognize a gain or loss. Free tax filing for low income families This rule applies both to individuals and to groups who transfer property to a corporation.

Free tax filing for low income families In this case, the rest of the gain is capital gain. Free tax filing for low income families Market discount bonds. Free tax filing for low income families   If the debt instrument has market discount and you chose to include the discount in income as it accrued, increase your basis in the debt instrument by the accrued discount to figure capital gain or loss on its disposition.

Free tax filing for low income families The rest of the gain is capital gain. Free tax filing for low income families See Market Discount Bonds in chapter 1 of Publication 550.
