Irs amended taxes Future Developments What's New for 2013 What's New for 2014 Reminders Photographs of Missing Children Introduction The purpose of this publication is to provide general information about the federal tax laws that apply to small business owners who are sole proprietors and to statutory employees. Irs amended taxes This publication has information on business income, expenses, and tax credits that may help you file your income tax return. Irs amended taxes Are you self-employed?   You are self-employed if you carry on a trade or business as a sole proprietor or an independent contractor. Irs amended taxes Sole proprietor. Irs amended taxes   A sole proprietor is someone who owns an unincorporated business by himself or herself. Irs amended taxes However, if you are the sole member of a domestic limited liability company (LLC), you are not a sole proprietor if you elect to treat the LLC as a corporation. Irs amended taxes Trade or business. Irs amended taxes    A trade or business is generally an activity carried on to make a profit. Irs amended taxes The facts and circumstances of each case determine whether or not an activity is a trade or business. Irs amended taxes You do not need to actually make a profit to be in a trade or business as long as you have a profit motive. Irs amended taxes You do need to make ongoing efforts to further the interests of your business. Irs amended taxes   You do not have to carry on regular full-time business activities to be self-employed. Irs amended taxes Having a part-time business in addition to your regular job or business may be self-employment. Irs amended taxes Independent contractor. Irs amended taxes    People such as doctors, dentists, veterinarians, lawyers, accountants, contractors, subcontractors, public stenographers, or auctioneers who are in an independent trade, business, or profession in which they offer their services to the general public are generally independent contractors. Irs amended taxes However, whether they are independent contractors or employees depends on the facts in each case. Irs amended taxes The general rule is that an individual is an independent contractor if the payer has the right to control or to direct only the result of the work and not how it will be done. Irs amended taxes The earnings of a person who is working as an independent contractor are subject to self-employment tax. Irs amended taxes For more information on determining whether you are an employee or independent contractor, see Publication 15-A, Employer's Supplemental Tax Guide. Irs amended taxes Statutory employee. Irs amended taxes   A statutory employee has a checkmark in box 13 of his or her Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement.

Irs amended taxes   A limited liability company (LLC) is an entity formed under state law by filing articles of organization. Irs amended taxes Generally, a single-member LLC is disregarded as an entity separate from its owner and reports its income and deductions on its owner's federal income tax return. Irs amended taxes An owner who is an individual may use Schedule C or C-EZ. Irs amended taxes Business owned and operated by spouses. Irs amended taxes   If you and your spouse jointly own and operate an unincorporated business and share in the profits and losses, you are partners in a partnership, whether or not you have a formal partnership agreement.

Irs amended taxes The only states with community property laws are Arizona, California, Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Washington, and Wisconsin. Irs amended taxes A change in your reporting position will be treated as a conversion of the entity. Irs amended taxes    Exception—Qualified joint venture.

Irs amended taxes Making this election will allow you to avoid the complexity of Form 1065 but still give each spouse credit for social security earnings on which retirement benefits are based. Irs amended taxes For an explanation of "material participation," see the Instructions for Schedule C, line G. Irs amended taxes   To make this election, you must divide all items of income, gain, loss, deduction, and credit attributable to the business between you and your spouse in accordance with your respective interests in the venture.

IRS Bars Appraisers from Valuing Facade Easements for Federal Tax Purposes for Five Years

IR-2014-31, March 19, 2014

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service today announced its Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) has entered into a settlement agreement with a group of appraisers from the same firm accused of aiding in the understatement of federal tax liabilities by overvaluing facade easements for charitable donation purposes.

Under the settlement agreement, the appraisers admitted to violating relevant sections of Circular 230 related to due diligence and submitting accurate documents to the government.

The appraisers agreed to a five-year suspension of valuing facade easements and undertaking any appraisal services that could subject them to penalties under the Internal Revenue Code. The appraisers also agreed to abide by all applicable provisions of Circular 230.

“Appraisers need to understand that they are subject to Circular 230, and must exercise due diligence in the preparation of documents relating to federal tax matters,” said Karen L. Hawkins, Director of OPR. “Taxpayers expect advice rendered with competence and diligence that goes beyond the mere mechanical application of a rule of thumb based on conjecture and unsupported conclusions.”

Failure to comply with terms of the settlement would result in the appraiser’s disqualification, which would include a ban from presenting any evidence or testimony in administrative proceedings before the Department of the Treasury, and renders any appraisal given after disqualification without probative effect.

The appraisers prepared reports valuing facade easements donated over several tax years. On behalf of each donating taxpayer, an appraiser completed Part III, Declaration of Appraiser, of Form 8283, Noncash Charitable Contributions, certifying that the appraiser did not fraudulently or falsely overstate the value of such facade easement. In valuing the facade easements, the appraisers applied a flat percentage diminution, generally 15 percent, to the fair market values of the underlying properties prior to the easement’s donation.

Specifically, the appraisers admitted violating Circular 230, Section 10.22(a)(1), for failing to exercise due diligence in the preparation of documents relating to IRS matters, and Section 10.22(a)(2) for failing to determine the correctness of written representations made to the Department of the Treasury.

OPR’s settlement agreement with the appraisers includes a disclosure authorization that allows this press release.
