H&r block military key code Cost Basis The basis of property you buy is usually its cost. H&r block military key code The cost is the amount you pay in cash, debt obligations, other property, or services. H&r block military key code Your cost also includes amounts you pay for the following items. H&r block military key code Sales tax, Freight, Installation and testing, Excise taxes, Legal and accounting fees (when they must be capitalized), Revenue stamps, Recording fees, and Real estate taxes (if assumed for the seller). H&r block military key code  You may also have to capitalize (add to basis) certain other costs related to buying or producing property. H&r block military key code Loans with low or no interest. H&r block military key code   If you buy property on a time-payment plan that charges little or no interest, the basis of your property is your stated purchase price, minus the amount considered to be unstated interest. H&r block military key code You generally have unstated interest if your interest rate is less than the applicable federal rate. H&r block military key code For more information, see Unstated Interest and Original Issue Discount in Publication 537. H&r block military key code Purchase of a business. H&r block military key code   When you purchase a trade or business, you generally purchase all assets used in the business operations, such as land, buildings, and machinery. H&r block military key code Allocate the price among the various assets, including any section 197 intangibles. H&r block military key code See Allocating the Basis, later. H&r block military key code Stocks and Bonds The basis of stocks or bonds you buy is generally the purchase price plus any costs of purchase, such as commissions and recording or transfer fees. H&r block military key code If you get stocks or bonds other than by purchase, your basis is usually determined by the fair market value (FMV) or the previous owner's adjusted basis of the stock. H&r block military key code You must adjust the basis of stocks for certain events that occur after purchase. H&r block military key code See Stocks and Bonds in chapter 4 of Publication 550 for more information on the basis of stock. H&r block military key code Identifying stock or bonds sold. H&r block military key code   If you can adequately identify the shares of stock or the bonds you sold, their basis is the cost or other basis of the particular shares of stock or bonds. H&r block military key code If you buy and sell securities at various times in varying quantities and you cannot adequately identify the shares you sell, the basis of the securities you sell is the basis of the securities you acquired first. H&r block military key code For more information about identifying securities you sell, see Stocks and Bonds under Basis of Investment Property in chapter 4 of Publication 550. H&r block military key code Mutual fund shares. H&r block military key code   If you sell mutual fund shares acquired at different times and prices, you can choose to use an average basis. H&r block military key code For more information, see Publication 550. H&r block military key code Real Property Real property, also called real estate, is land and generally anything built on or attached to it. H&r block military key code If you buy real property, certain fees and other expenses become part of your cost basis in the property. H&r block military key code Real estate taxes. H&r block military key code   If you pay real estate taxes the seller owed on real property you bought, and the seller did not reimburse you, treat those taxes as part of your basis. H&r block military key code You cannot deduct them as taxes. H&r block military key code   If you reimburse the seller for taxes the seller paid for you, you can usually deduct that amount as an expense in the year of purchase. H&r block military key code Do not include that amount in the basis of the property. H&r block military key code If you did not reimburse the seller, you must reduce your basis by the amount of those taxes. H&r block military key code Settlement costs. H&r block military key code   Your basis includes the settlement fees and closing costs for buying property. H&r block military key code You cannot include in your basis the fees and costs for getting a loan on property. H&r block military key code A fee for buying property is a cost that must be paid even if you bought the property for cash. H&r block military key code   The following items are some of the settlement fees or closing costs you can include in the basis of your property. H&r block military key code Abstract fees (abstract of title fees); Charges for installing utility services; Legal fees (including title search and preparation of the sales contract and deed); Recording fees; Surveys; Transfer taxes; Owner's title insurance; and Any amounts the seller owes that you agree to pay, such as back taxes or interest, recording or mortgage fees, charges for improvements or repairs, and sales commissions. H&r block military key code   Settlement costs do not include amounts placed in escrow for the future payment of items such as taxes and insurance. H&r block military key code   The following items are some settlement fees and closing costs you cannot include in the basis of the property. H&r block military key code Casualty insurance premiums. H&r block military key code Rent for occupancy of the property before closing. H&r block military key code Charges for utilities or other services related to occupancy of the property before closing. H&r block military key code Charges connected with getting a loan. H&r block military key code The following are examples of these charges. H&r block military key code Points (discount points, loan origination fees). H&r block military key code Mortgage insurance premiums. H&r block military key code Loan assumption fees. H&r block military key code Cost of a credit report. H&r block military key code Fees for an appraisal required by a lender. H&r block military key code Fees for refinancing a mortgage. H&r block military key code If these costs relate to business property, items (1) through (3) are deductible as business expenses. H&r block military key code Items (4) and (5) must be capitalized as costs of getting a loan and can be deducted over the period of the loan. H&r block military key code Points. H&r block military key code   If you pay points to obtain a loan (including a mortgage, second mortgage, line of credit, or a home equity loan), do not add the points to the basis of the related property. H&r block military key code Generally, you deduct the points over the term of the loan. H&r block military key code For more information on how to deduct points, see Points in chapter 4 of Publication 535. H&r block military key code Points on home mortgage. H&r block military key code   Special rules may apply to points you and the seller pay when you obtain a mortgage to purchase your main home. H&r block military key code If certain requirements are met, you can deduct the points in full for the year in which they are paid. H&r block military key code Reduce the basis of your home by any seller-paid points. H&r block military key code For more information, see Points in Publication 936, Home Mortgage Interest Deduction. H&r block military key code Assumption of mortgage. H&r block military key code   If you buy property and assume (or buy subject to) an existing mortgage on the property, your basis includes the amount you pay for the property plus the amount to be paid on the mortgage. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code If you buy a building for $20,000 cash and assume a mortgage of $80,000 on it, your basis is $100,000. H&r block military key code Constructing assets. H&r block military key code   If you build property or have assets built for you, your expenses for this construction are part of your basis. H&r block military key code Some of these expenses include the following costs. H&r block military key code Land, Labor and materials, Architect's fees, Building permit charges, Payments to contractors, Payments for rental equipment, and Inspection fees. H&r block military key code In addition, if you own a business and use your employees, material, and equipment to build an asset, do not deduct the following expenses. H&r block military key code You must include them in the asset's basis. H&r block military key code Employee wages paid for the construction work, reduced by any employment credits allowed; Depreciation on equipment you own while it is used in the construction; Operating and maintenance costs for equipment used in the construction; and The cost of business supplies and materials used in the construction. H&r block military key code    Do not include the value of your own labor, or any other labor you did not pay for, in the basis of any property you construct. H&r block military key code Business Assets If you purchase property to use in your business, your basis is usually its actual cost to you. H&r block military key code If you construct, create, or otherwise produce property, you must capitalize the costs as your basis. H&r block military key code In certain circumstances, you may be subject to the uniform capitalization rules, next. H&r block military key code Uniform Capitalization Rules The uniform capitalization rules specify the costs you add to basis in certain circumstances. H&r block military key code Activities subject to the rules. H&r block military key code   You must use the uniform capitalization rules if you do any of the following in your trade or business or activity carried on for profit. H&r block military key code Produce real or tangible personal property for use in the business or activity, Produce real or tangible personal property for sale to customers, or Acquire property for resale. H&r block military key code However, this rule does not apply to personal property if your average annual gross receipts for the 3 previous tax years are $10 million or less. H&r block military key code   You produce property if you construct, build, install, manufacture, develop, improve, create, raise, or grow the property. H&r block military key code Treat property produced for you under a contract as produced by you up to the amount you pay or costs you otherwise incur for the property. H&r block military key code Tangible personal property includes films, sound recordings, video tapes, books, or similar property. H&r block military key code    Under the uniform capitalization rules, you must capitalize all direct costs and an allocable part of most indirect costs you incur due to your production or resale activities. H&r block military key code To capitalize means to include certain expenses in the basis of property you produce or in your inventory costs rather than deduct them as a current expense. H&r block military key code You recover these costs through deductions for depreciation, amortization, or cost of goods sold when you use, sell, or otherwise dispose of the property. H&r block military key code   Any cost you cannot use to figure your taxable income for any tax year is not subject to the uniform capitalization rules. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code If you incur a business meal expense for which your deduction would be limited to 50% of the cost of the meal, that amount is subject to the uniform capitalization rules. H&r block military key code The nondeductible part of the cost is not subject to the uniform capitalization rules. H&r block military key code More information. H&r block military key code   For more information about these rules, see the regulations under section 263A of the Internal Revenue Code and Publication 538, Accounting Periods and Methods. H&r block military key code Exceptions. H&r block military key code   The following are not subject to the uniform capitalization rules. H&r block military key code Property you produce that you do not use in your trade, business, or activity conducted for profit; Qualified creative expenses you pay or incur as a free-lance (self-employed) writer, photographer, or artist that are otherwise deductible on your tax return; Property you produce under a long-term contract, except for certain home construction contracts; Research and experimental expenses deductible under section 174 of the Internal Revenue Code; and Costs for personal property acquired for resale if your (or your predecessor's) average annual gross receipts for the 3 previous tax years do not exceed $10 million. H&r block military key code For other exceptions to the uniform capitalization rules, see section 1. H&r block military key code 263A-1(b) of the regulations. H&r block military key code   For information on the special rules that apply to costs incurred in the business of farming, see chapter 6 of Publication 225, Farmer's Tax Guide. H&r block military key code Intangible Assets Intangible assets include goodwill, patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, and franchises. H&r block military key code The basis of an intangible asset is usually the cost to buy or create it. H&r block military key code If you acquire multiple assets, for example a going business for a lump sum, see Allocating the Basis below to figure the basis of the individual assets. H&r block military key code The basis of certain intangibles can be amortized. H&r block military key code See chapter 8 of Publication 535 for information on the amortization of these costs. H&r block military key code Patents. H&r block military key code   The basis of a patent you get for an invention is the cost of development, such as research and experimental expenditures, drawings, working models, and attorneys' and governmental fees. H&r block military key code If you deduct the research and experimental expenditures as current business expenses, you cannot include them in the basis of the patent. H&r block military key code The value of the inventor's time spent on an invention is not part of the basis. H&r block military key code Copyrights. H&r block military key code   If you are an author, the basis of a copyright will usually be the cost of getting the copyright plus copyright fees, attorneys' fees, clerical assistance, and the cost of plates that remain in your possession. H&r block military key code Do not include the value of your time as the author, or any other person's time you did not pay for. H&r block military key code Franchises, trademarks, and trade names. H&r block military key code   If you buy a franchise, trademark, or trade name, the basis is its cost, unless you can deduct your payments as a business expense. H&r block military key code Allocating the Basis If you buy multiple assets for a lump sum, allocate the amount you pay among the assets you receive. H&r block military key code You must make this allocation to figure your basis for depreciation and gain or loss on a later disposition of any of these assets. H&r block military key code See Trade or Business Acquired below. H&r block military key code Group of Assets Acquired If you buy multiple assets for a lump sum, you and the seller may agree to a specific allocation of the purchase price among the assets in the sales contract. H&r block military key code If this allocation is based on the value of each asset and you and the seller have adverse tax interests, the allocation generally will be accepted. H&r block military key code However, see Trade or Business Acquired, next. H&r block military key code Trade or Business Acquired If you acquire a trade or business, allocate the consideration paid to the various assets acquired. H&r block military key code Generally, reduce the consideration paid by any cash and general deposit accounts (including checking and savings accounts) received. H&r block military key code Allocate the remaining consideration to the other business assets received in proportion to (but not more than) their fair market value in the following order. H&r block military key code Certificates of deposit, U. H&r block military key code S. H&r block military key code Government securities, foreign currency, and actively traded personal property, including stock and securities. H&r block military key code Accounts receivable, other debt instruments, and assets you mark to market at least annually for federal income tax purposes. H&r block military key code Property of a kind that would properly be included in inventory if on hand at the end of the tax year or property held primarily for sale to customers in the ordinary course of business. H&r block military key code All other assets except section 197 intangibles, goodwill, and going concern value. H&r block military key code Section 197 intangibles except goodwill and going concern value. H&r block military key code Goodwill and going concern value (whether or not they qualify as section 197 intangibles). H&r block military key code Agreement. H&r block military key code   The buyer and seller may enter into a written agreement as to the allocation of any consideration or the fair market value (FMV) of any of the assets. H&r block military key code This agreement is binding on both parties unless the IRS determines the amounts are not appropriate. H&r block military key code Reporting requirement. H&r block military key code   Both the buyer and seller involved in the sale of business assets must report to the IRS the allocation of the sales price among section 197 intangibles and the other business assets. H&r block military key code Use Form 8594 to provide this information. H&r block military key code The buyer and seller should each attach Form 8594 to their federal income tax return for the year in which the sale occurred. H&r block military key code More information. H&r block military key code   See Sale of a Business in chapter 2 of Publication 544 for more information. H&r block military key code Land and Buildings If you buy buildings and the land on which they stand for a lump sum, allocate the basis of the property among the land and the buildings so you can figure the depreciation allowable on the buildings. H&r block military key code Figure the basis of each asset by multiplying the lump sum by a fraction. H&r block military key code The numerator is the FMV of that asset and the denominator is the FMV of the whole property at the time of purchase. H&r block military key code If you are not certain of the FMV of the land and buildings, you can allocate the basis based on their assessed values for real estate tax purposes. H&r block military key code Demolition of building. H&r block military key code   Add demolition costs and other losses incurred for the demolition of any building to the basis of the land on which the demolished building was located. H&r block military key code Do not claim the costs as a current deduction. H&r block military key code Modification of building. H&r block military key code   A modification of a building will not be treated as a demolition if the following conditions are satisfied. H&r block military key code 75 percent or more of the existing external walls of the building are retained in place as internal or external walls, and 75 percent or more of the existing internal structural framework of the building is retained in place. H&r block military key code   If the building is a certified historic structure, the modification must also be part of a certified rehabilitation. H&r block military key code   If these conditions are met, add the costs of the modifications to the basis of the building. H&r block military key code Subdivided lots. H&r block military key code   If you buy a tract of land and subdivide it, you must determine the basis of each lot. H&r block military key code This is necessary because you must figure the gain or loss on the sale of each individual lot. H&r block military key code As a result, you do not recover your entire cost in the tract until you have sold all of the lots. H&r block military key code   To determine the basis of an individual lot, multiply the total cost of the tract by a fraction. H&r block military key code The numerator is the FMV of the lot and the denominator is the FMV of the entire tract. H&r block military key code Future improvement costs. H&r block military key code   If you are a developer and sell subdivided lots before the development work is completed, you can (with IRS consent) include in the basis of the properties sold an allocation of the estimated future cost for common improvements. H&r block military key code See Revenue Procedure 92–29 for more information, including an explanation of the procedures for getting consent from the IRS. H&r block military key code Use of erroneous cost basis. H&r block military key code   If you made a mistake in figuring the cost basis of subdivided lots sold in previous years, you cannot correct the mistake for years for which the statute of limitations (generally 3 tax years) has expired. H&r block military key code Figure the basis of any remaining lots by allocating the correct original cost basis of the entire tract among the original lots. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code You bought a tract of land to which you assigned a cost of $15,000. H&r block military key code You subdivided the land into 15 building lots of equal size and equitably divided your basis so that each lot had a basis of $1,000. H&r block military key code You treated the sale of each lot as a separate transaction and figured gain or loss separately on each sale. H&r block military key code Several years later you determine that your original basis in the tract was $22,500 and not $15,000. H&r block military key code You sold eight lots using $8,000 of basis in years for which the statute of limitations has expired. H&r block military key code You now can take $1,500 of basis into account for figuring gain or loss only on the sale of each of the remaining seven lots ($22,500 basis divided among all 15 lots). H&r block military key code You cannot refigure the basis of the eight lots sold in tax years barred by the statute of limitations. H&r block military key code Adjusted Basis Before figuring gain or loss on a sale, exchange, or other disposition of property or figuring allowable depreciation, depletion, or amortization, you must usually make certain adjustments to the basis of the property. H&r block military key code The result of these adjustments to the basis is the adjusted basis. H&r block military key code Increases to Basis Increase the basis of any property by all items properly added to a capital account. H&r block military key code These include the cost of any improvements having a useful life of more than 1 year. H&r block military key code Rehabilitation expenses also increase basis. H&r block military key code However, you must subtract any rehabilitation credit allowed for these expenses before you add them to your basis. H&r block military key code If you have to recapture any of the credit, increase your basis by the recaptured amount. H&r block military key code If you make additions or improvements to business property, keep separate accounts for them. H&r block military key code Also, you must depreciate the basis of each according to the depreciation rules that would apply to the underlying property if you had placed it in service at the same time you placed the addition or improvement in service. H&r block military key code For more information, see Publication 946. H&r block military key code The following items increase the basis of property. H&r block military key code The cost of extending utility service lines to the property; Impact fees; Legal fees, such as the cost of defending and perfecting title; Legal fees for obtaining a decrease in an assessment levied against property to pay for local improvements; Zoning costs; and The capitalized value of a redeemable ground rent. H&r block military key code Assessments for Local Improvements Increase the basis of property by assessments for items such as paving roads and building ditches that increase the value of the property assessed. H&r block military key code Do not deduct them as taxes. H&r block military key code However, you can deduct as taxes charges for maintenance, repairs, or interest charges related to the improvements. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code Your city changes the street in front of your store into an enclosed pedestrian mall and assesses you and other affected landowners for the cost of the conversion. H&r block military key code Add the assessment to your property's basis. H&r block military key code In this example, the assessment is a depreciable asset. H&r block military key code Deducting vs. H&r block military key code Capitalizing Costs Do not add to your basis costs you can deduct as current expenses. H&r block military key code For example, amounts paid for incidental repairs or maintenance that are deductible as business expenses cannot be added to basis. H&r block military key code However, you can choose either to deduct or to capitalize certain other costs. H&r block military key code If you capitalize these costs, include them in your basis. H&r block military key code If you deduct them, do not include them in your basis. H&r block military key code See Uniform Capitalization Rules earlier. H&r block military key code The costs you can choose to deduct or to capitalize include the following. H&r block military key code Carrying charges, such as interest and taxes, that you pay to own property, except carrying charges that must be capitalized under the uniform capitalization rules; Research and experimentation costs; Intangible drilling and development costs for oil, gas, and geothermal wells; Exploration costs for new mineral deposits; Mining development costs for a new mineral deposit; Costs of establishing, maintaining, or increasing the circulation of a newspaper or other periodical; and Costs of removing architectural and transportation barriers to people with disabilities and the elderly. H&r block military key code If you claim the disabled access credit, you must reduce the amount you deduct or capitalize by the amount of the credit. H&r block military key code For more information about deducting or capitalizing costs, see chapter 7 in Publication 535. H&r block military key code Table 1. H&r block military key code Examples of Increases and Decreases to Basis Increases to Basis Decreases to Basis Capital improvements:   Putting an addition on your home   Replacing an entire roof  Paving your driveway  Installing central air conditioning Rewiring your home Exclusion from income of subsidies for energy conservation measures  Casualty or theft loss deductions and insurance reimbursements  Vehicle credits Assessments for local improvements: Water connections Sidewalks Roads Section 179 deduction  Casualty losses: Restoring damaged property Depreciation  Nontaxable corporate distributions Legal fees:  Cost of defending and perfecting a title   Zoning costs   Decreases to Basis The following are some items that reduce the basis of property. H&r block military key code Section 179 deduction; Nontaxable corporate distributions; Deductions previously allowed (or allowable) for amortization, depreciation, and depletion; Exclusion of subsidies for energy conservation measures; Vehicle credits; Residential energy credits; Postponed gain from sale of home; Investment credit (part or all) taken; Casualty and theft losses and insurance reimbursement; Certain canceled debt excluded from income; Rebates from a manufacturer or seller; Easements; Gas-guzzler tax; Adoption tax benefits; and Credit for employer-provided child care. H&r block military key code Some of these items are discussed next. H&r block military key code Casualties and Thefts If you have a casualty or theft loss, decrease the basis in your property by any insurance or other reimbursement and by any deductible loss not covered by insurance. H&r block military key code You must increase your basis in the property by the amount you spend on repairs that substantially prolong the life of the property, increase its value, or adapt it to a different use. H&r block military key code To make this determination, compare the repaired property to the property before the casualty. H&r block military key code For more information on casualty and theft losses, see Publication 547, Casualties, Disasters, and Thefts. H&r block military key code Easements The amount you receive for granting an easement is generally considered to be a sale of an interest in real property. H&r block military key code It reduces the basis of the affected part of the property. H&r block military key code If the amount received is more than the basis of the part of the property affected by the easement, reduce your basis in that part to zero and treat the excess as a recognized gain. H&r block military key code Vehicle Credits Unless you elect not to claim the qualified plug-in electric vehicle credit, the alternative motor vehicle credit, or the qualified plug-in electric drive motor vehicle credit, you may have to reduce the basis of each qualified vehicle by certain amounts reported. H&r block military key code For more information, see Form 8834, Qualified Plug-in Electric and Electric Vehicle Credit; Form 8910, Alternative Motor Vehicle Credit; Form 8936, Qualified Plug-in Electric Drive Motor Vehicle Credit;and the related instructions. H&r block military key code Gas-Guzzler Tax Decrease the basis in your car by the gas-guzzler (fuel economy) tax if you begin using the car within 1 year of the date of its first sale for ultimate use. H&r block military key code This rule also applies to someone who later buys the car and begins using it not more than 1 year after the original sale for ultimate use. H&r block military key code If the car is imported, the one-year period begins on the date of entry or withdrawal of the car from the warehouse if that date is later than the date of the first sale for ultimate use. H&r block military key code Section 179 Deduction If you take the section 179 deduction for all or part of the cost of qualifying business property, decrease the basis of the property by the deduction. H&r block military key code For more information about the section 179 deduction, see Publication 946. H&r block military key code Exclusion of Subsidies for Energy Conservation Measures You can exclude from gross income any subsidy you received from a public utility company for the purchase or installation of any energy conservation measure for a dwelling unit. H&r block military key code Reduce the basis of the property for which you received the subsidy by the excluded amount. H&r block military key code For more information on this subsidy, see Publication 525. H&r block military key code Depreciation Decrease the basis of property by the depreciation you deducted, or could have deducted, on your tax returns under the method of depreciation you chose. H&r block military key code If you took less depreciation than you could have under the method chosen, decrease the basis by the amount you could have taken under that method. H&r block military key code If you did not take a depreciation deduction, reduce the basis by the full amount of the depreciation you could have taken. H&r block military key code Unless a timely election is made not to deduct the special depreciation allowance for property placed in service after September 10, 2001, decrease the property's basis by the special depreciation allowance you deducted or could have deducted. H&r block military key code If you deducted more depreciation than you should have, decrease your basis by the amount equal to the depreciation you should have deducted plus the part of the excess depreciation you deducted that actually reduced your tax liability for the year. H&r block military key code In decreasing your basis for depreciation, take into account the amount deducted on your tax returns as depreciation and any depreciation capitalized under the uniform capitalization rules. H&r block military key code For information on figuring depreciation, see Publication 946. H&r block military key code If you are claiming depreciation on a business vehicle, see Publication 463. H&r block military key code If the car is not used more than 50% for business during the tax year, you may have to recapture excess depreciation. H&r block military key code Include the excess depreciation in your gross income and add it to your basis in the property. H&r block military key code For information on the computation of excess depreciation, see chapter 4 in Publication 463. H&r block military key code Canceled Debt Excluded From Income If a debt you owe is canceled or forgiven, other than as a gift or bequest, you generally must include the canceled amount in your gross income for tax purposes. H&r block military key code A debt includes any indebtedness for which you are liable or which attaches to property you hold. H&r block military key code You can exclude canceled debt from income in the following situations. H&r block military key code Debt canceled in a bankruptcy case or when you are insolvent, Qualified farm debt, and Qualified real property business debt (provided you are not a C corporation). H&r block military key code If you exclude from income canceled debt under situation (1) or (2), you may have to reduce the basis of your depreciable and nondepreciable property. H&r block military key code However, in situation (3), you must reduce the basis of your depreciable property by the excluded amount. H&r block military key code For more information about canceled debt in a bankruptcy case or during insolvency, see Publication 908, Bankruptcy Tax Guide. H&r block military key code For more information about canceled debt that is qualified farm debt, see chapter 3 in Publication 225. H&r block military key code For more information about qualified real property business debt, see chapter 5 in Publication 334, Tax Guide for Small Business. H&r block military key code Postponed Gain From Sale of Home If you postponed gain from the sale of your main home before May 7, 1997, you must reduce the basis of your new home by the postponed gain. H&r block military key code For more information on the rules for the sale of a home, see Publication 523. H&r block military key code Adoption Tax Benefits If you claim an adoption credit for the cost of improvements you added to the basis of your home, decrease the basis of your home by the credit allowed. H&r block military key code This also applies to amounts you received under an employer's adoption assistance program and excluded from income. H&r block military key code For more information Form 8839, Qualified Adoption Expenses. H&r block military key code Employer-Provided Child Care If you are an employer, you can claim the employer-provided child care credit on amounts you paid or incurred to acquire, construct, rehabilitate, or expand property used as part of your qualified child care facility. H&r block military key code You must reduce your basis in that property by the credit claimed. H&r block military key code For more information, see Form 8882, Credit for Employer-Provided Child Care Facilities and Services. H&r block military key code Adjustments to Basis Example In January 2005, you paid $80,000 for real property to be used as a factory. H&r block military key code You also paid commissions of $2,000 and title search and legal fees of $600. H&r block military key code You allocated the total cost of $82,600 between the land and the building—$10,325 for the land and $72,275 for the building. H&r block military key code Immediately you spent $20,000 in remodeling the building before you placed it in service. H&r block military key code You were allowed depreciation of $14,526 for the years 2005 through 2009. H&r block military key code In 2008 you had a $5,000 casualty loss from a that was not covered by insurance on the building. H&r block military key code You claimed a deduction for this loss. H&r block military key code You spent $5,500 to repair the damages and extend the useful life of the building. H&r block military key code The adjusted basis of the building on January 1, 2010, is figured as follows: Original cost of building including fees and commissions $72,275 Adjustments to basis:     Add:         Improvements 20,000   Repair of damages 5,500       $97,775 Subtract:       Depreciation $14,526     Deducted casualty loss 5,000 19,526 Adjusted basis on January 1, 2010 $78,249 The basis of the land, $10,325, remains unchanged. H&r block military key code It is not affected by any of the above adjustments. H&r block military key code Basis Other Than Cost There are many times when you cannot use cost as basis. H&r block military key code In these cases, the fair market value or the adjusted basis of property may be used. H&r block military key code Adjusted basis is discussed earlier. H&r block military key code Fair market value (FMV). H&r block military key code   FMV is the price at which property would change hands between a buyer and a seller, neither having to buy or sell, and both having reasonable knowledge of all necessary facts. H&r block military key code Sales of similar property on or about the same date may be helpful in figuring the property's FMV. H&r block military key code Property Received for Services If you receive property for services, include the property's FMV in income. H&r block military key code The amount you include in income becomes your basis. H&r block military key code If the services were performed for a price agreed on beforehand, it will be accepted as the FMV of the property if there is no evidence to the contrary. H&r block military key code Bargain Purchases A bargain purchase is a purchase of an item for less than its FMV. H&r block military key code If, as compensation for services, you purchase goods or other property at less than FMV, include the difference between the purchase price and the property's FMV in your income. H&r block military key code Your basis in the property is its FMV (your purchase price plus the amount you include in income). H&r block military key code If the difference between your purchase price and the FMV represents a qualified employee discount, do not include the difference in income. H&r block military key code However, your basis in the property is still its FMV. H&r block military key code See Employee Discounts in Publication 15-B. H&r block military key code Restricted Property If you receive property for your services and the property is subject to certain restrictions, your basis in the property is its FMV when it becomes substantially vested unless you make the election discussed later. H&r block military key code Property becomes substantially vested when your rights in the property or the rights of any person to whom you transfer the property are not subject to a substantial risk of forfeiture. H&r block military key code There is substantial risk of forfeiture when the rights to full enjoyment of the property depend on the future performance of substantial services by any person. H&r block military key code When the property becomes substantially vested, include the FMV, less any amount you paid for the property, in income. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code Your employer gives you stock for services performed under the condition that you will have to return the stock unless you complete 5 years of service. H&r block military key code The stock is under a substantial risk of forfeiture and is not substantially vested when you receive it. H&r block military key code You do not report any income until you have completed the 5 years of service that satisfy the condition. H&r block military key code Fair market value. H&r block military key code   Figure the FMV of property you received without considering any restriction except one that by its terms will never end. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code You received stock from your employer for services you performed. H&r block military key code If you want to sell the stock while you are still employed, you must sell the stock to your employer at book value. H&r block military key code At your retirement or death, you or your estate must offer to sell the stock to your employer at its book value. H&r block military key code This is a restriction that by its terms will never end and you must consider it when you figure the FMV. H&r block military key code Election. H&r block military key code   You can choose to include in your gross income the FMV of the property at the time of transfer, less any amount you paid for it. H&r block military key code If you make this choice, the substantially vested rules do not apply. H&r block military key code Your basis is the amount you paid plus the amount you included in income. H&r block military key code   See the discussion of Restricted Property in Publication 525 for more information. H&r block military key code Taxable Exchanges A taxable exchange is one in which the gain is taxable or the loss is deductible. H&r block military key code A taxable gain or deductible loss is also known as a recognized gain or loss. H&r block military key code If you receive property in exchange for other property in a taxable exchange, the basis of property you receive is usually its FMV at the time of the exchange. H&r block military key code A taxable exchange occurs when you receive cash or property not similar or related in use to the property exchanged. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code You trade a tract of farm land with an adjusted basis of $3,000 for a tractor that has an FMV of $6,000. H&r block military key code You must report a taxable gain of $3,000 for the land. H&r block military key code The tractor has a basis of $6,000. H&r block military key code Involuntary Conversions If you receive property as a result of an involuntary conversion, such as a casualty, theft, or condemnation, you can figure the basis of the replacement property you receive using the basis of the converted property. H&r block military key code Similar or related property. H&r block military key code   If you receive replacement property similar or related in service or use to the converted property, the replacement property's basis is the old property's basis on the date of the conversion. H&r block military key code However, make the following adjustments. H&r block military key code Decrease the basis by the following. H&r block military key code Any loss you recognize on the conversion, and Any money you receive that you do not spend on similar property. H&r block military key code Increase the basis by the following. H&r block military key code Any gain you recognize on the conversion, and Any cost of acquiring the replacement property. H&r block military key code Money or property not similar or related. H&r block military key code   If you receive money or property not similar or related in service or use to the converted property, and you buy replacement property similar or related in service or use to the converted property, the basis of the new property is its cost decreased by the gain not recognized on the conversion. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code The state condemned your property. H&r block military key code The property had an adjusted basis of $26,000 and the state paid you $31,000 for it. H&r block military key code You realized a gain of $5,000 ($31,000 − $26,000). H&r block military key code You bought replacement property similar in use to the converted property for $29,000. H&r block military key code You recognize a gain of $2,000 ($31,000 − $29,000), the unspent part of the payment from the state. H&r block military key code Your gain not recognized is $3,000, the difference between the $5,000 realized gain and the $2,000 recognized gain. H&r block military key code The basis of the new property is figured as follows: Cost of replacement property $29,000 Minus: Gain not recognized 3,000 Basis of the replacement property $26,000 Allocating the basis. H&r block military key code   If you buy more than one piece of replacement property, allocate your basis among the properties based on their respective costs. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code The state in the previous example condemned your unimproved real property and the replacement property you bought was improved real property with both land and buildings. H&r block military key code Allocate the replacement property's $26,000 basis between land and buildings based on their respective costs. H&r block military key code More information. H&r block military key code   For more information about condemnations, see Involuntary Conversions in Publication 544. H&r block military key code For more information about casualty and theft losses, see Publication 547. H&r block military key code Nontaxable Exchanges A nontaxable exchange is an exchange in which you are not taxed on any gain and you cannot deduct any loss. H&r block military key code If you receive property in a nontaxable exchange, its basis is usually the same as the basis of the property you transferred. H&r block military key code A nontaxable gain or loss is also known as an unrecognized gain or loss. H&r block military key code Like-Kind Exchanges The exchange of property for the same kind of property is the most common type of nontaxable exchange. H&r block military key code To qualify as a like-kind exchange, you must hold for business or investment purposes both the property you transfer and the property you receive. H&r block military key code There must also be an exchange of like-kind property. H&r block military key code For more information, see Like-Kind Exchanges in Publication 544. H&r block military key code The basis of the property you receive is the same as the basis of the property you gave up. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code You exchange real estate (adjusted basis $50,000, FMV $80,000) held for investment for other real estate (FMV $80,000) held for investment. H&r block military key code Your basis in the new property is the same as the basis of the old ($50,000). H&r block military key code Exchange expenses. H&r block military key code   Exchange expenses are generally the closing costs you pay. H&r block military key code They include such items as brokerage commissions, attorney fees, deed preparation fees, etc. H&r block military key code Add them to the basis of the like-kind property received. H&r block military key code Property plus cash. H&r block military key code   If you trade property in a like-kind exchange and also pay money, the basis of the property received is the basis of the property you gave up increased by the money you paid. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code You trade in a truck (adjusted basis $3,000) for another truck (FMV $7,500) and pay $4,000. H&r block military key code Your basis in the new truck is $7,000 (the $3,000 basis of the old truck plus the $4,000 paid). H&r block military key code Special rules for related persons. H&r block military key code   If a like-kind exchange takes place directly or indirectly between related persons and either party disposes of the property within 2 years after the exchange, the exchange no longer qualifies for like-kind exchange treatment. H&r block military key code Each person must report any gain or loss not recognized on the original exchange. H&r block military key code Each person reports it on the tax return filed for the year in which the later disposition occurs. H&r block military key code If this rule applies, the basis of the property received in the original exchange will be its fair market value. H&r block military key code   These rules generally do not apply to the following kinds of property dispositions. H&r block military key code Dispositions due to the death of either related person, Involuntary conversions, and Dispositions in which neither the original exchange nor the subsequent disposition had as a main purpose the avoidance of federal income tax. H&r block military key code Related persons. H&r block military key code   Generally, related persons are ancestors, lineal descendants, brothers and sisters (whole or half), and a spouse. H&r block military key code   For other related persons (for example, two corporations, an individual and a corporation, a grantor and fiduciary, etc. H&r block military key code ), see Nondeductible Loss in chapter 2 of Publication 544. H&r block military key code Exchange of business property. H&r block military key code   Exchanging the assets of one business for the assets of another business is a multiple property exchange. H&r block military key code For information on figuring basis, see Multiple Property Exchanges in chapter 1 of Publication 544. H&r block military key code Partially Nontaxable Exchange A partially nontaxable exchange is an exchange in which you receive unlike property or money in addition to like property. H&r block military key code The basis of the property you receive is the same as the basis of the property you gave up, with the following adjustments. H&r block military key code Decrease the basis by the following amounts. H&r block military key code Any money you receive, and Any loss you recognize on the exchange. H&r block military key code Increase the basis by the following amounts. H&r block military key code Any additional costs you incur, and Any gain you recognize on the exchange. H&r block military key code If the other party to the exchange assumes your liabilities, treat the debt assumption as money you received in the exchange. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code You traded a truck (adjusted basis $6,000) for a new truck (FMV $5,200) and $1,000 cash. H&r block military key code You realized a gain of $200 ($6,200 − $6,000). H&r block military key code This is the FMV of the truck received plus the cash minus the adjusted basis of the truck you traded ($5,200 + $1,000 – $6,000). H&r block military key code You include all the gain in income (recognized gain) because the gain is less than the cash received. H&r block military key code Your basis in the new truck is: Adjusted basis of old truck $6,000 Minus: Cash received (adjustment 1(a)) 1,000   $5,000 Plus: Gain recognized (adjustment 2(b)) 200 Basis of new truck $5,200 Allocation of basis. H&r block military key code   Allocate the basis first to the unlike property, other than money, up to its FMV on the date of the exchange. H&r block military key code The rest is the basis of the like property. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code You had an adjusted basis of $15,000 in real estate you held for investment. H&r block military key code You exchanged it for other real estate to be held for investment with an FMV of $12,500, a truck with an FMV of $3,000, and $1,000 cash. H&r block military key code The truck is unlike property. H&r block military key code You realized a gain of $1,500 ($16,500 − $15,000). H&r block military key code This is the FMV of the real estate received plus the FMV of the truck received plus the cash minus the adjusted basis of the real estate you traded ($12,500 + $3,000 + $1,000 – $15,000). H&r block military key code You include in income (recognize) all $1,500 of the gain because it is less than the FMV of the unlike property plus the cash received. H&r block military key code Your basis in the properties you received is figured as follows. H&r block military key code Adjusted basis of real estate transferred $15,000 Minus: Cash received (adjustment 1(a)) 1,000   $14,000 Plus: Gain recognized (adjustment 2(b)) 1,500 Total basis of properties received $15,500 Allocate the total basis of $15,500 first to the unlike property — the truck ($3,000). H&r block military key code This is the truck's FMV. H&r block military key code The rest ($12,500) is the basis of the real estate. H&r block military key code Sale and Purchase If you sell property and buy similar property in two mutually dependent transactions, you may have to treat the sale and purchase as a single nontaxable exchange. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code You are a salesperson and you use one of your cars 100% for business. H&r block military key code You have used this car in your sales activities for 2 years and have depreciated it. H&r block military key code Your adjusted basis in the car is $22,600 and its FMV is $23,100. H&r block military key code You are interested in a new car, which sells for $28,000. H&r block military key code If you trade your old car and pay $4,900 for the new one, your basis for depreciation for the new car would be $27,500 ($4,900 plus the $22,600 basis of your old car). H&r block military key code However, you want a higher basis for depreciating the new car, so you agree to pay the dealer $28,000 for the new car if he will pay you $23,100 for your old car. H&r block military key code Because the two transactions are dependent on each other, you are treated as having exchanged your old car for the new one and paid $4,900 ($28,000 − $23,100). H&r block military key code Your basis for depreciating the new car is $27,500, the same as if you traded the old car. H&r block military key code Partial Business Use of Property If you have property used partly for business and partly for personal use, and you exchange it in a nontaxable exchange for property to be used wholly or partly in your business, the basis of the property you receive is figured as if you had exchanged two properties. H&r block military key code The first is an exchange of like-kind property. H&r block military key code The second is personal-use property on which gain is recognized and loss is not recognized. H&r block military key code First, figure your adjusted basis in the property as if you transferred two separate properties. H&r block military key code Figure the adjusted basis of each part of the property by taking into account any adjustments to basis. H&r block military key code Deduct the depreciation you took or could have taken from the adjusted basis of the business part. H&r block military key code Then figure the amount realized for your property and allocate it to the business and nonbusiness parts of the property. H&r block military key code The business part of the property is permitted to be exchanged tax free. H&r block military key code However, you must recognize any gain from the exchange of the nonbusiness part. H&r block military key code You are deemed to have received, in exchange for the nonbusiness part, an amount equal to its FMV on the date of the exchange. H&r block military key code The basis of the property you acquired is the total basis of the property transferred (adjusted to the date of the exchange), increased by any gain recognized on the nonbusiness part. H&r block military key code If the nonbusiness part of the property transferred is your main home, you may qualify to exclude from income all or part of the gain on that part. H&r block military key code For more information, see Publication 523. H&r block military key code Trade of car used partly in business. H&r block military key code   If you trade in a car you used partly in your business for another car you will use in your business, your basis for depreciation of the new car is not the same as your basis for figuring a gain or loss on its sale. H&r block military key code   For information on figuring your basis for depreciation, see Publication 463. H&r block military key code Property Transferred From a Spouse The basis of property transferred to you or transferred in trust for your benefit by your spouse (or former spouse if the transfer is incident to divorce), is the same as your spouse's adjusted basis. H&r block military key code However, adjust your basis for any gain recognized by your spouse or former spouse on property transferred in trust. H&r block military key code This rule applies only to a transfer of property in trust in which the liabilities assumed, plus the liabilities to which the property is subject, are more than the adjusted basis of the property transferred. H&r block military key code If the property transferred to you is a series E, series EE, or series I United States savings bond, the transferor must include in income the interest accrued to the date of transfer. H&r block military key code Your basis in the bond immediately after the transfer is equal to the transferor's basis increased by the interest income includible in the transferor's income. H&r block military key code For more information on these bonds, see Publication 550. H&r block military key code At the time of the transfer, the transferor must give you the records necessary to determine the adjusted basis and holding period of the property as of the date of transfer. H&r block military key code For more information, see Publication 504, Divorced or Separated Individuals. H&r block military key code Property Received as a Gift To figure the basis of property you receive as a gift, you must know its adjusted basis (defined earlier) to the donor just before it was given to you, its FMV at the time it was given to you, and any gift tax paid on it. H&r block military key code FMV Less Than Donor's Adjusted Basis If the FMV of the property at the time of the gift is less than the donor's adjusted basis, your basis depends on whether you have a gain or a loss when you dispose of the property. H&r block military key code Your basis for figuring gain is the same as the donor's adjusted basis plus or minus any required adjustment to basis while you held the property. H&r block military key code Your basis for figuring loss is its FMV when you received the gift plus or minus any required adjustment to basis while you held the property (see Adjusted Basis earlier). H&r block military key code If you use the donor's adjusted basis for figuring a gain and get a loss, and then use the FMV for figuring a loss and have a gain, you have neither gain nor loss on the sale or disposition of the property. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code You received an acre of land as a gift. H&r block military key code At the time of the gift, the land had an FMV of $8,000. H&r block military key code The donor's adjusted basis was $10,000. H&r block military key code After you received the land, no events occurred to increase or decrease your basis. H&r block military key code If you sell the land for $12,000, you will have a $2,000 gain because you must use the donor's adjusted basis ($10,000) at the time of the gift as your basis to figure gain. H&r block military key code If you sell the land for $7,000, you will have a $1,000 loss because you must use the FMV ($8,000) at the time of the gift as your basis to figure a loss. H&r block military key code If the sales price is between $8,000 and $10,000, you have neither gain nor loss. H&r block military key code For instance, if the sales price was $9,000 and you tried to figure a gain using the donor's adjusted basis ($10,000), you would get a $1,000 loss. H&r block military key code If you then tried to figure a loss using the FMV ($8,000), you would get a $1,000 gain. H&r block military key code Business property. H&r block military key code   If you hold the gift as business property, your basis for figuring any depreciation, depletion, or amortization deduction is the same as the donor's adjusted basis plus or minus any required adjustments to basis while you hold the property. H&r block military key code FMV Equal to or More Than Donor's Adjusted Basis If the FMV of the property is equal to or greater than the donor's adjusted basis, your basis is the donor's adjusted basis at the time you received the gift. H&r block military key code Increase your basis by all or part of any gift tax paid, depending on the date of the gift. H&r block military key code Also, for figuring gain or loss from a sale or other disposition of the property, or for figuring depreciation, depletion, or amortization deductions on business property, you must increase or decrease your basis by any required adjustments to basis while you held the property. H&r block military key code See Adjusted Basis earlier. H&r block military key code Gift received before 1977. H&r block military key code   If you received a gift before 1977, increase your basis in the gift (the donor's adjusted basis) by any gift tax paid on it. H&r block military key code However, do not increase your basis above the FMV of the gift at the time it was given to you. H&r block military key code Example 1. H&r block military key code You were given a house in 1976 with an FMV of $21,000. H&r block military key code The donor's adjusted basis was $20,000. H&r block military key code The donor paid a gift tax of $500. H&r block military key code Your basis is $20,500, the donor's adjusted basis plus the gift tax paid. H&r block military key code Example 2. H&r block military key code If, in Example 1, the gift tax paid had been $1,500, your basis would be $21,000. H&r block military key code This is the donor's adjusted basis plus the gift tax paid, limited to the FMV of the house at the time you received the gift. H&r block military key code Gift received after 1976. H&r block military key code   If you received a gift after 1976, increase your basis in the gift (the donor's adjusted basis) by the part of the gift tax paid on it that is due to the net increase in value of the gift. H&r block military key code Figure the increase by multiplying the gift tax paid by a fraction. H&r block military key code The numerator of the fraction is the net increase in value of the gift and the denominator is the amount of the gift. H&r block military key code   The net increase in value of the gift is the FMV of the gift less the donor's adjusted basis. H&r block military key code The amount of the gift is its value for gift tax purposes after reduction by any annual exclusion and marital or charitable deduction that applies to the gift. H&r block military key code For information on the gift tax, see Publication 950, Introduction to Estate and Gift Taxes. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code In 2010, you received a gift of property from your mother that had an FMV of $50,000. H&r block military key code Her adjusted basis was $20,000. H&r block military key code The amount of the gift for gift tax purposes was $37,000 ($50,000 minus the $13,000 annual exclusion). H&r block military key code She paid a gift tax of $9,000. H&r block military key code Your basis, $27,290, is figured as follows: Fair market value $50,000 Minus: Adjusted basis 20,000 Net increase in value $30,000 Gift tax paid $9,000 Multiplied by ($30,000 ÷ $37,000) . H&r block military key code 81 Gift tax due to net increase in value $7,290 Adjusted basis of property to your mother 20,000 Your basis in the property $27,290 Inherited Property Special rules apply to property acquired from a decedent who died in 2010. H&r block military key code See Publication 4895, Tax Treatment of Property Acquired From a Decedent Dying in 2010, for details. H&r block military key code If you inherited property from a decedent who died before 2010, your basis in property you inherit from a decedent is generally one of the following. H&r block military key code The FMV of the property at the date of the individual's death. H&r block military key code The FMV on the alternate valuation date if the personal representative for the estate chooses to use alternate valuation. H&r block military key code For information on the alternate valuation date, see the Instructions for Form 706. H&r block military key code The value under the special-use valuation method for real property used in farming or a closely held business if chosen for estate tax purposes. H&r block military key code This method is discussed later. H&r block military key code The decedent's adjusted basis in land to the extent of the value excluded from the decedent's taxable estate as a qualified conservation easement. H&r block military key code For information on a qualified conservation easement, see the Instructions for Form 706. H&r block military key code If a federal estate tax return does not have to be filed, your basis in the inherited property is its appraised value at the date of death for state inheritance or transmission taxes. H&r block military key code For more information, see the Instructions for Form 706. H&r block military key code Appreciated property. H&r block military key code   The above rule does not apply to appreciated property you receive from a decedent if you or your spouse originally gave the property to the decedent within 1 year before the decedent's death. H&r block military key code Your basis in this property is the same as the decedent's adjusted basis in the property immediately before his or her death, rather than its FMV. H&r block military key code Appreciated property is any property whose FMV on the day it was given to the decedent is more than its adjusted basis. H&r block military key code Community Property In community property states (Arizona, California, Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Washington, and Wisconsin), husband and wife are each usually considered to own half the community property. H&r block military key code When either spouse dies, the total value of the community property, even the part belonging to the surviving spouse, generally becomes the basis of the entire property. H&r block military key code For this rule to apply, at least half the value of the community property interest must be includable in the decedent's gross estate, whether or not the estate must file a return. H&r block military key code For example, you and your spouse owned community property that had a basis of $80,000. H&r block military key code When your spouse died, half the FMV of the community interest was includible in your spouse's estate. H&r block military key code The FMV of the community interest was $100,000. H&r block military key code The basis of your half of the property after the death of your spouse is $50,000 (half of the $100,000 FMV). H&r block military key code The basis of the other half to your spouse's heirs is also $50,000. H&r block military key code For more information on community property, see Publication 555, Community Property. H&r block military key code Property Held by Surviving Tenant The following example explains the rule for the basis of property held by a surviving tenant in joint tenancy or tenancy by the entirety. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code John and Jim owned, as joint tenants with right of survivorship, business property they purchased for $30,000. H&r block military key code John furnished two-thirds of the purchase price and Jim furnished one-third. H&r block military key code Depreciation deductions allowed before John's death were $12,000. H&r block military key code Under local law, each had a half interest in the income from the property. H&r block military key code At the date of John's death, the property had an FMV of $60,000, two-thirds of which is includable in John's estate. H&r block military key code Jim figures his basis in the property at the date of John's death as follows: Interest Jim bought with his own funds—1/3 of $30,000 cost $10,000   Interest Jim received on John's death—2/3 of $60,000 FMV 40,000 $50,000 Minus: ½ of $12,000 depreciation before John's death 6,000 Jim's basis at the date of John's death $44,000 If Jim had not contributed any part of the purchase price, his basis at the date of John's death would be $54,000. H&r block military key code This is figured by subtracting from the $60,000 FMV, the $6,000 depreciation allocated to Jim's half interest before the date of death. H&r block military key code If under local law Jim had no interest in the income from the property and he contributed no part of the purchase price, his basis at John's death would be $60,000, the FMV of the property. H&r block military key code Qualified Joint Interest Include one-half of the value of a qualified joint interest in the decedent's gross estate. H&r block military key code It does not matter how much each spouse contributed to the purchase price. H&r block military key code Also, it does not matter which spouse dies first. H&r block military key code A qualified joint interest is any interest in property held by husband and wife as either of the following. H&r block military key code Tenants by the entirety, or Joint tenants with right of survivorship if husband and wife are the only joint tenants. H&r block military key code Basis. H&r block military key code   As the surviving spouse, your basis in property you owned with your spouse as a qualified joint interest is the cost of your half of the property with certain adjustments. H&r block military key code Decrease the cost by any deductions allowed to you for depreciation and depletion. H&r block military key code Increase the reduced cost by your basis in the half you inherited. H&r block military key code Farm or Closely Held Business Under certain conditions, when a person dies the executor or personal representative of that person's estate can choose to value the qualified real property on other than its FMV. H&r block military key code If so, the executor or personal representative values the qualified real property based on its use as a farm or its use in a closely held business. H&r block military key code If the executor or personal representative chooses this method of valuation for estate tax purposes, that value is the basis of the property for the heirs. H&r block military key code Qualified heirs should be able to get the necessary value from the executor or personal representative of the estate. H&r block military key code Special-use valuation. H&r block military key code   If you are a qualified heir who received special-use valuation property, your basis in the property is the estate's or trust's basis in that property immediately before the distribution. H&r block military key code Increase your basis by any gain recognized by the estate or trust because of post-death appreciation. H&r block military key code Post-death appreciation is the property's FMV on the date of distribution minus the property's FMV either on the date of the individual's death or the alternate valuation date. H&r block military key code Figure all FMVs without regard to the special-use valuation. H&r block military key code   You can elect to increase your basis in special-use valuation property if it becomes subject to the additional estate tax. H&r block military key code This tax is assessed if, within 10 years after the death of the decedent, you transfer the property to a person who is not a member of your family or the property stops being used as a farm or in a closely held business. H&r block military key code   To increase your basis in the property, you must make an irrevocable election and pay interest on the additional estate tax figured from the date 9 months after the decedent's death until the date of the payment of the additional estate tax. H&r block military key code If you meet these requirements, increase your basis in the property to its FMV on the date of the decedent's death or the alternate valuation date. H&r block military key code The increase in your basis is considered to have occurred immediately before the event that results in the additional estate tax. H&r block military key code   You make the election by filing with Form 706-A a statement that does all of the following. H&r block military key code Contains your name, address, and taxpayer identification number and those of the estate; Identifies the election as an election under section 1016(c) of the Internal Revenue Code; Specifies the property for which the election is made; and Provides any additional information required by the Instructions for Form 706-A. H&r block military key code   For more information, see the Instructions for Form 706 and the Instructions for Form 706-A. H&r block military key code Property Changed to Business or Rental Use If you hold property for personal use and then change it to business use or use it to produce rent, you must figure its basis for depreciation. H&r block military key code An example of changing property held for personal use to business use would be renting out your former main home. H&r block military key code Basis for depreciation. H&r block military key code   The basis for depreciation is the lesser of the following amounts. H&r block military key code The FMV of the property on the date of the change, or Your adjusted basis on the date of the change. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code Several years ago you paid $160,000 to have your home built on a lot that cost $25,000. H&r block military key code You paid $20,000 for permanent improvements to the house and claimed a $2,000 casualty loss deduction for damage to the house before changing the property to rental use last year. H&r block military key code Because land is not depreciable, you include only the cost of the house when figuring the basis for depreciation. H&r block military key code Your adjusted basis in the house when you changed its use was $178,000 ($160,000 + $20,000 − $2,000). H&r block military key code On the same date, your property had an FMV of $180,000, of which $15,000 was for the land and $165,000 was for the house. H&r block military key code The basis for figuring depreciation on the house is its FMV on the date of change ($165,000) because it is less than your adjusted basis ($178,000). H&r block military key code Sale of property. H&r block military key code   If you later sell or dispose of property changed to business or rental use, the basis of the property you use will depend on whether you are figuring gain or loss. H&r block military key code Gain. H&r block military key code   The basis for figuring a gain is your adjusted basis when you sell the property. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code Assume the same facts as in the previous example except that you sell the property at a gain after being allowed depreciation deductions of $37,500. H&r block military key code Your adjusted basis for figuring gain is $165,500 ($178,000 + $25,000 (land) − $37,500). H&r block military key code Loss. H&r block military key code   Figure the basis for a loss starting with the smaller of your adjusted basis or the FMV of the property at the time of the change to business or rental use. H&r block military key code Then adjust this amount for the period after the change in the property's use, as discussed earlier under Adjusted Basis, to arrive at a basis for loss. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code Assume the same facts as in the previous example, except that you sell the property at a loss after being allowed depreciation deductions of $37,500. H&r block military key code In this case, you would start with the FMV on the date of the change to rental use ($180,000) because it is less than the adjusted basis of $203,000 ($178,000 + $25,000) on that date. H&r block military key code Reduce that amount ($180,000) by the depreciation deductions to arrive at a basis for loss of $142,500 ($180,000 − $37,500).

H&r block military key code Treaty benefits generally are available to residents of the United States. H&r block military key code They generally are not available to U. H&r block military key code S. H&r block military key code citizens who do not reside in the United States. H&r block military key code However, certain treaty benefits and safeguards, such as the nondiscrimination provisions, are available to U. H&r block military key code S.

H&r block military key code Professors and teachers. H&r block military key code If you are a U. H&r block military key code S. H&r block military key code resident, the payment you receive for the first 2 or 3 years that you are teaching or doing research in a treaty country may be exempt from that country's income tax. H&r block military key code Students, trainees, and apprentices. H&r block military key code If you are a U. H&r block military key code S. H&r block military key code resident, amounts you receive from the United States for study, research, or business, professional and technical training may be exempt from a treaty country's income tax. H&r block military key code Some treaties exempt grants, allowances, and awards received from governmental and certain nonprofit organizations. H&r block military key code Also, under certain circumstances, a limited amount of pay received by students, trainees, and apprentices may be exempt from the income tax of many treaty countries. H&r block military key code Pensions and annuities. H&r block military key code If you are a U. H&r block military key code S. H&r block military key code resident, nongovernment pensions and annuities you receive may be exempt from the income tax of treaty countries.

H&r block military key code Investment income. H&r block military key code If you are a U. H&r block military key code S. H&r block military key code resident, investment income, such as interest and dividends, that you receive from sources in a treaty country may be exempt from that country's income tax or taxed at a reduced rate. H&r block military key code Several treaties provide exemption for capital gains (other than from sales of real property in most cases) if specified requirements are met. H&r block military key code Tax credit provisions. H&r block military key code If you are a U. H&r block military key code S. H&r block military key code resident who receives income from or owns capital in a foreign country, you may be taxed on that income or capital by both the United States and the treaty country. H&r block military key code Most treaties allow you to take a credit against or deduction from the treaty country's taxes based on the U. H&r block military key code S. H&r block military key code tax on the income. H&r block military key code Nondiscrimination provisions. H&r block military key code Most U. H&r block military key code S. H&r block military key code tax treaties provide that the treaty country cannot discriminate by imposing more burdensome taxes on U. H&r block military key code S.

H&r block military key code U. H&r block military key code S. H&r block military key code treaties contain saving clauses that provide that the treaties do not affect the U. H&r block military key code S. H&r block military key code taxation of its own citizens and residents. H&r block military key code As a result, U. H&r block military key code S. H&r block military key code citizens and residents generally cannot use the treaty to reduce their U. H&r block military key code S. H&r block military key code tax liability. H&r block military key code However, most treaties provide exceptions to saving clauses that allow certain provisions of the treaty to be claimed by U. H&r block military key code S.
