Military taxes online However, the rules for property held for personal use usually will not apply to taxpayers other than individuals. Military taxes online See chapter 5 for information about getting publications and forms. Military taxes online Sales and Exchanges A sale is a transfer of property for money or a mortgage, note, or other promise to pay money. Military taxes online An exchange is a transfer of property for other property or services. Military taxes online The following discussions describe the kinds of transactions that are treated as sales or exchanges and explain how to figure gain or loss. Military taxes online Sale or lease. Military taxes online    Some agreements that seem to be leases may really be conditional sales contracts. Military taxes online The intention of the parties to the agreement can help you distinguish between a sale and a lease. Military taxes online   There is no test or group of tests to prove what the parties intended when they made the agreement. Military taxes online You should consider each agreement based on its own facts and circumstances. Military taxes online For more information, see chapter 3 in Publication 535, Business Expenses. Military taxes online Cancellation of a lease. Military taxes online    Payments received by a tenant for the cancellation of a lease are treated as an amount realized from the sale of property. Military taxes online Payments received by a landlord (lessor) for the cancellation of a lease are essentially a substitute for rental payments and are taxed as ordinary income in the year in which they are received. Military taxes online Copyright. Military taxes online    Payments you receive for granting the exclusive use of (or right to exploit) a copyright throughout its life in a particular medium are treated as received from the sale of property. Military taxes online It does not matter if the payments are a fixed amount or a percentage of receipts from the sale, performance, exhibition, or publication of the copyrighted work, or an amount based on the number of copies sold, performances given, or exhibitions made. Military taxes online Nor does it matter if the payments are made over the same period as that covering the grantee's use of the copyrighted work. Military taxes online   If the copyright was used in your trade or business and you held it longer than a year, the gain or loss may be a section 1231 gain or loss. Military taxes online For more information, see Section 1231 Gains and Losses in chapter 3. Military taxes online Easement. Military taxes online   The amount received for granting an easement is subtracted from the basis of the property. Military taxes online If only a specific part of the entire tract of property is affected by the easement, only the basis of that part is reduced by the amount received. Military taxes online If it is impossible or impractical to separate the basis of the part of the property on which the easement is granted, the basis of the whole property is reduced by the amount received. Military taxes online   Any amount received that is more than the basis to be reduced is a taxable gain. Military taxes online The transaction is reported as a sale of property. Military taxes online   If you transfer a perpetual easement for consideration and do not keep any beneficial interest in the part of the property affected by the easement, the transaction will be treated as a sale of property. Military taxes online However, if you make a qualified conservation contribution of a restriction or easement granted in perpetuity, it is treated as a charitable contribution and not a sale or exchange, even though you keep a beneficial interest in the property affected by the easement. Military taxes online   If you grant an easement on your property (for example, a right-of-way over it) under condemnation or threat of condemnation, you are considered to have made a forced sale, even though you keep the legal title. Military taxes online Although you figure gain or loss on the easement in the same way as a sale of property, the gain or loss is treated as a gain or loss from a condemnation. Military taxes online See Gain or Loss From Condemnations, later. Military taxes online Property transferred to satisfy debt. Military taxes online   A transfer of property to satisfy a debt is an exchange. Military taxes online Note's maturity date extended. Military taxes online   The extension of a note's maturity date is not treated as an exchange of an outstanding note for a new and different note. Military taxes online Also, it is not considered a closed and completed transaction that would result in a gain or loss. Military taxes online However, an extension will be treated as a taxable exchange of the outstanding note for a new and materially different note if the changes in the terms of the note are significant. Military taxes online Each case must be determined by its own facts. Military taxes online For more information, see Regulations section 1. Military taxes online 1001-3. Military taxes online Transfer on death. Military taxes online   The transfer of property of a decedent to an executor or administrator of the estate, or to the heirs or beneficiaries, is not a sale or exchange or other disposition. Military taxes online No taxable gain or deductible loss results from the transfer. Military taxes online Bankruptcy. Military taxes online   Generally, a transfer (other than by sale or exchange) of property from a debtor to a bankruptcy estate is not treated as a disposition. Military taxes online Consequently, the transfer generally does not result in gain or loss. Military taxes online For more information, see Publication 908, Bankruptcy Tax Guide. Military taxes online Gain or Loss From Sales and Exchanges You usually realize gain or loss when property is sold or exchanged. Military taxes online A gain is the amount you realize from a sale or exchange of property that is more than its adjusted basis. Military taxes online A loss is the adjusted basis of the property that is more than the amount you realize. Military taxes online   Table 1-1. Military taxes online How To Figure Whether You Have a Gain or Loss IF your. Military taxes online . Military taxes online . Military taxes online THEN you have a. Military taxes online . Military taxes online . Military taxes online Adjusted basis is more than the amount realized, Loss. Military taxes online Amount realized is more than the adjusted basis, Gain. Military taxes online Basis. Military taxes online   You must know the basis of your property to determine whether you have a gain or loss from its sale or other disposition. Military taxes online The basis of property you buy is usually its cost. Military taxes online However, if you acquired the property by gift, inheritance, or in some way other than buying it, you must use a basis other than its cost. Military taxes online See Basis Other Than Cost in Publication 551, Basis of Assets. Military taxes online Special rules apply to property acquired from a decedent who died in 2010 and the executor made the election to file Form 8939, Allocation of Increase in Basis for Property Received From a Decedent. Military taxes online See Publication 4895, Tax Treatment of Property Acquired From a Decedent Dying in 2010, for details. Military taxes online Adjusted basis. Military taxes online   The adjusted basis of property is your original cost or other basis plus (increased by) certain additions and minus (decreased by) certain deductions. Military taxes online Increases include costs of any improvements having a useful life of more than 1 year. Military taxes online Decreases include depreciation and casualty losses. Military taxes online For more details and additional examples, see Adjusted Basis in Publication 551. Military taxes online Amount realized. Military taxes online   The amount you realize from a sale or exchange is the total of all money you receive plus the fair market value (defined below) of all property or services you receive. Military taxes online The amount you realize also includes any of your liabilities that were assumed by the buyer and any liabilities to which the property you transferred is subject, such as real estate taxes or a mortgage. Military taxes online Fair market value. Military taxes online   Fair market value (FMV) is the price at which the property would change hands between a buyer and a seller when both have reasonable knowledge of all the necessary facts and neither is being forced to buy or sell. Military taxes online If parties with adverse interests place a value on property in an arm's-length transaction, that is strong evidence of FMV. Military taxes online If there is a stated price for services, this price is treated as the FMV unless there is evidence to the contrary. Military taxes online Example. Military taxes online You used a building in your business that cost you $70,000. Military taxes online You made certain permanent improvements at a cost of $20,000 and deducted depreciation totaling $10,000. Military taxes online You sold the building for $100,000 plus property having an FMV of $20,000. Military taxes online The buyer assumed your real estate taxes of $3,000 and a mortgage of $17,000 on the building. Military taxes online The selling expenses were $4,000. Military taxes online Your gain on the sale is figured as follows. Military taxes online Amount realized:     Cash $100,000   FMV of property received 20,000   Real estate taxes assumed by buyer 3,000   Mortgage assumed by  buyer 17,000   Total 140,000   Minus: Selling expenses 4,000 $136,000 Adjusted basis:     Cost of building $70,000   Improvements 20,000   Total $90,000   Minus: Depreciation 10,000   Adjusted basis   $80,000 Gain on sale $56,000 Amount recognized. Military taxes online   Your gain or loss realized from a sale or exchange of property is usually a recognized gain or loss for tax purposes. Military taxes online Recognized gains must be included in gross income. Military taxes online Recognized losses are deductible from gross income. Military taxes online However, your gain or loss realized from certain exchanges of property is not recognized for tax purposes. Military taxes online See Nontaxable Exchanges, later. Military taxes online Also, a loss from the sale or other disposition of property held for personal use is not deductible, except in the case of a casualty or theft. Military taxes online Interest in property. Military taxes online   The amount you realize from the disposition of a life interest in property, an interest in property for a set number of years, or an income interest in a trust is a recognized gain under certain circumstances. Military taxes online If you received the interest as a gift, inheritance, or in a transfer from a spouse or former spouse incident to a divorce, the amount realized is a recognized gain. Military taxes online Your basis in the property is disregarded. Military taxes online This rule does not apply if all interests in the property are disposed of at the same time. Military taxes online Example 1. Military taxes online Your father dies and leaves his farm to you for life with a remainder interest to your younger brother. Military taxes online You decide to sell your life interest in the farm. Military taxes online The entire amount you receive is a recognized gain. Military taxes online Your basis in the farm is disregarded. Military taxes online Example 2. Military taxes online The facts are the same as in Example 1, except that your brother joins you in selling the farm. Military taxes online The entire interest in the property is sold, so your basis in the farm is not disregarded. Military taxes online Your gain or loss is the difference between your share of the sales price and your adjusted basis in the farm. Military taxes online Canceling a sale of real property. Military taxes online   If you sell real property under a sales contract that allows the buyer to return the property for a full refund and the buyer does so, you may not have to recognize gain or loss on the sale. Military taxes online If the buyer returns the property in the year of sale, no gain or loss is recognized. Military taxes online This cancellation of the sale in the same year it occurred places both you and the buyer in the same positions you were in before the sale. Military taxes online If the buyer returns the property in a later tax year, you must recognize gain (or loss, if allowed) in the year of the sale. Military taxes online When the property is returned in a later year, you acquire a new basis in the property. Military taxes online That basis is equal to the amount you pay to the buyer. Military taxes online Bargain Sale If you sell or exchange property for less than fair market value with the intent of making a gift, the transaction is partly a sale or exchange and partly a gift. Military taxes online You have a gain if the amount realized is more than your adjusted basis in the property. Military taxes online However, you do not have a loss if the amount realized is less than the adjusted basis of the property. Military taxes online Bargain sales to charity. Military taxes online   A bargain sale of property to a charitable organization is partly a sale or exchange and partly a charitable contribution. Military taxes online If a charitable deduction for the contribution is allowable, you must allocate your adjusted basis in the property between the part sold and the part contributed based on the fair market value of each. Military taxes online The adjusted basis of the part sold is figured as follows. Military taxes online Adjusted basis of entire property × Amount realized (fair market value of part sold)   Fair market value of entire property   Based on this allocation rule, you will have a gain even if the amount realized is not more than your adjusted basis in the property. Military taxes online This allocation rule does not apply if a charitable contribution deduction is not allowable. Military taxes online   See Publication 526, Charitable Contributions, for information on figuring your charitable contribution. Military taxes online Example. Military taxes online You sold property with a fair market value of $10,000 to a charitable organization for $2,000 and are allowed a deduction for your contribution. Military taxes online Your adjusted basis in the property is $4,000. Military taxes online Your gain on the sale is $1,200, figured as follows. Military taxes online Sales price $2,000 Minus: Adjusted basis of part sold ($4,000 × ($2,000 ÷ $10,000)) 800 Gain on the sale $1,200 Property Used Partly for Business or Rental Generally, if you sell or exchange property you used partly for business or rental purposes and partly for personal purposes, you must figure the gain or loss on the sale or exchange as though you had sold two separate pieces of property. Military taxes online You must subtract depreciation you took or could have taken from the basis of the business or rental part. Military taxes online However, see the special rule below for a home used partly for business or rental. Military taxes online You must allocate the selling price, selling expenses, and the basis of the property between the business or rental part and the personal part. Military taxes online Gain or loss on the business or rental part of the property may be a capital gain or loss or an ordinary gain or loss, as discussed in chapter 3 under Section 1231 Gains and Losses. Military taxes online Any gain on the personal part of the property is a capital gain. Military taxes online You cannot deduct a loss on the personal part. Military taxes online Home used partly for business or rental. Military taxes online    If you use property partly as a home and partly for business or to produce rental income, the computation and treatment of any gain on the sale depends partly on whether the business or rental part of the property is part of your home or separate from it. Military taxes online See Property Used Partly for Business or Rental, in Publication 523. Military taxes online Property Changed to Business or Rental Use You cannot deduct a loss on the sale of property you purchased or constructed for use as your home and used as your home until the time of sale. Military taxes online You can deduct a loss on the sale of property you acquired for use as your home but changed to business or rental property and used as business or rental property at the time of sale. Military taxes online However, if the adjusted basis of the property at the time of the change was more than its fair market value, the loss you can deduct is limited. Military taxes online Figure the loss you can deduct as follows. Military taxes online Use the lesser of the property's adjusted basis or fair market value at the time of the change. Military taxes online Add to (1) the cost of any improvements and other increases to basis since the change. Military taxes online Subtract from (2) depreciation and any other decreases to basis since the change. Military taxes online Subtract the amount you realized on the sale from the result in (3). Military taxes online If the amount you realized is more than the result in (3), treat this result as zero. Military taxes online The result in (4) is the loss you can deduct. Military taxes online Example. Military taxes online You changed your main home to rental property 5 years ago. Military taxes online At the time of the change, the adjusted basis of your home was $75,000 and the fair market value was $70,000. Military taxes online This year, you sold the property for $55,000. Military taxes online You made no improvements to the property but you have depreciation expense of $12,620 over the 5 prior years. Military taxes online Although your loss on the sale is $7,380 [($75,000 − $12,620) − $55,000], the amount you can deduct as a loss is limited to $2,380, figured as follows. Military taxes online Lesser of adjusted basis or fair market value at time of the change $70,000 Plus: Cost of any improvements and any other additions to basis after the change -0-   70,000 Minus: Depreciation and any other decreases to basis after the change 12,620   57,380 Minus: Amount you realized from the sale 55,000 Deductible loss $2,380 Gain. Military taxes online   If you have a gain on the sale, you generally must recognize the full amount of the gain. Military taxes online You figure the gain by subtracting your adjusted basis from your amount realized, as described earlier. Military taxes online   You may be able to exclude all or part of the gain if you owned and lived in the property as your main home for at least 2 years during the 5-year period ending on the date of sale. Military taxes online However, you may not be able to exclude the part of the gain allocated to any period of nonqualified use. Military taxes online   For more information, see Business Use or Rental of Home in Publication 523. Military taxes online In addition, special rules apply if the home sold was acquired in a like-kind exchange. Military taxes online See Special Situations in Publication 523. Military taxes online Also see Like-Kind Exchanges, later. Military taxes online Abandonments The abandonment of property is a disposition of property. Military taxes online You abandon property when you voluntarily and permanently give up possession and use of the property with the intention of ending your ownership but without passing it on to anyone else. Military taxes online Generally, abandonment is not treated as a sale or exchange of the property. Military taxes online If the amount you realize (if any) is more than your adjusted basis, then you have a gain. Military taxes online If your adjusted basis is more than the amount you realize (if any), then you have a loss. Military taxes online Loss from abandonment of business or investment property is deductible as a loss. Military taxes online A loss from an abandonment of business or investment property that is not treated as a sale or exchange generally is an ordinary loss. Military taxes online This rule also applies to leasehold improvements the lessor made for the lessee that were abandoned. Military taxes online If the property is foreclosed on or repossessed in lieu of abandonment, gain or loss is figured as discussed later under Foreclosure and Repossessions. Military taxes online The abandonment loss is deducted in the tax year in which the loss is sustained. Military taxes online If the abandoned property is secured by debt, special rules apply. Military taxes online The tax consequences of abandonment of property that is secured by debt depend on whether you are personally liable for the debt (recourse debt) or you are not personally liable for the debt (nonrecourse debt). Military taxes online For more information, including examples, see chapter 3 of Publication 4681. Military taxes online You cannot deduct any loss from abandonment of your home or other property held for personal use only. Military taxes online Cancellation of debt. Military taxes online   If the abandoned property secures a debt for which you are personally liable and the debt is canceled, you may realize ordinary income equal to the canceled debt. Military taxes online This income is separate from any loss realized from abandonment of the property. Military taxes online   You must report this income on your tax return unless one of the following applies. Military taxes online The cancellation is intended as a gift. Military taxes online The debt is qualified farm debt. Military taxes online The debt is qualified real property business debt. Military taxes online You are insolvent or bankrupt. Military taxes online The debt is qualified principal residence indebtedness. Military taxes online File Form 982, Reduction of Tax Attributes Due to Discharge of Indebtedness (and Section 1082 Basis Adjustment), to report the income exclusion. Military taxes online For more information, including other exceptions and exclusion, see Publication 4681. Military taxes online Forms 1099-A and 1099-C. Military taxes online   If you abandon property that secures a loan and the lender knows the property has been abandoned, the lender should send you Form 1099-A showing information you need to figure your loss from the abandonment. Military taxes online However, if your debt is canceled and the lender must file Form 1099-C, the lender may include the information about the abandonment on that form instead of on Form 1099-A, and send you Form 1099-C only. Military taxes online The lender must file Form 1099-C and send you a copy if the amount of debt canceled is $600 or more and the lender is a financial institution, credit union, federal government agency, or any organization that has a significant trade or business of lending money. Military taxes online For abandonments of property and debt cancellations occurring in 2013, these forms should be sent to you by January 31, 2014. Military taxes online Foreclosures and Repossessions If you do not make payments you owe on a loan secured by property, the lender may foreclose on the loan or repossess the property. Military taxes online The foreclosure or repossession is treated as a sale or exchange from which you may realize gain or loss. Military taxes online This is true even if you voluntarily return the property to the lender. Military taxes online You also may realize ordinary income from cancellation of debt if the loan balance is more than the fair market value of the property. Military taxes online Buyer's (borrower's) gain or loss. Military taxes online   You figure and report gain or loss from a foreclosure or repossession in the same way as gain or loss from a sale or exchange. Military taxes online The gain or loss is the difference between your adjusted basis in the transferred property and the amount realized. Military taxes online See Gain or Loss From Sales and Exchanges, earlier. Military taxes online You can use Table 1-2 to figure your gain or loss from a foreclosure or repossession. Military taxes online Amount realized on a nonrecourse debt. Military taxes online   If you are not personally liable for repaying the debt (nonrecourse debt) secured by the transferred property, the amount you realize includes the full debt canceled by the transfer. Military taxes online The full canceled debt is included even if the fair market value of the property is less than the canceled debt. Military taxes online Example 1. Military taxes online Chris bought a new car for $15,000. Military taxes online He paid $2,000 down and borrowed the remaining $13,000 from the dealer's credit company. Military taxes online Chris is not personally liable for the loan (nonrecourse debt), but pledges the new car as security. Military taxes online The credit company repossessed the car because he stopped making loan payments. Military taxes online The balance due after taking into account the payments Chris made was $10,000. Military taxes online The fair market value of the car when repossessed was $9,000. Military taxes online The amount Chris realized on the repossession is $10,000. Military taxes online That is the outstanding amount of the debt canceled by the repossession, even though the car's fair market value is less than $10,000. Military taxes online Chris figures his gain or loss on the repossession by comparing the amount realized ($10,000) with his adjusted basis ($15,000). Military taxes online He has a $5,000 nondeductible loss. Military taxes online Example 2. Military taxes online Abena paid $200,000 for her home. Military taxes online She paid $15,000 down and borrowed the remaining $185,000 from a bank. Military taxes online Abena is not personally liable for the loan (nonrecourse debt), but pledges the house as security. Military taxes online The bank foreclosed on the loan because Abena stopped making payments. Military taxes online When the bank foreclosed on the loan, the balance due was $180,000, the fair market value of the house was $170,000, and Abena's adjusted basis was $175,000 due to a casualty loss she had deducted. Military taxes online The amount Abena realized on the foreclosure is $180,000, the balance due and debt canceled by the foreclosure. Military taxes online She figures her gain or loss by comparing the amount realized ($180,000) with her adjusted basis ($175,000). Military taxes online She has a $5,000 realized gain. Military taxes online Amount realized on a recourse debt. Military taxes online   If you are personally liable for the debt (recourse debt), the amount realized on the foreclosure or repossession includes the lesser of: The outstanding debt immediately before the transfer reduced by any amount for which you remain personally liable immediately after the transfer, or The fair market value of the transferred property. Military taxes online You are treated as receiving ordinary income from the canceled debt for the part of the debt that is more than the fair market value. Military taxes online The amount realized does not include the canceled debt that is your income from cancellation of debt. Military taxes online See Cancellation of debt, below. Military taxes online Seller's (lender's) gain or loss on repossession. Military taxes online   If you finance a buyer's purchase of property and later acquire an interest in it through foreclosure or repossession, you may have a gain or loss on the acquisition. Military taxes online For more information, see Repossession in Publication 537. Military taxes online    Table 1-2. Military taxes online Worksheet for Foreclosures and Repossessions Part 1. Military taxes online Use Part 1 to figure your ordinary income from the cancellation of debt upon foreclosure or repossession. Military taxes online Complete this part only  if you were personally liable for the debt. Military taxes online Otherwise,  go to Part 2. Military taxes online   1. Military taxes online Enter the amount of outstanding debt immediately before the transfer of   property reduced by any amount for which you remain personally liable after   the transfer of property   2. Military taxes online Enter the fair market value of the transferred property   3. Military taxes online Ordinary income from cancellation of debt upon foreclosure or    repossession.

Military taxes online Enter the adjusted basis of the transferred property   8. Military taxes online Gain or loss from foreclosure or repossession. Military taxes online Subtract line 7  from line 6   * The income may not be taxable. Military taxes online See Cancellation of debt. Military taxes online Cancellation of debt. Military taxes online   If property that is repossessed or foreclosed on secures a debt for which you are personally liable (recourse debt), you generally must report as ordinary income the amount by which the canceled debt is more than the fair market value of the property. Military taxes online This income is separate from any gain or loss realized from the foreclosure or repossession. Military taxes online Report the income from cancellation of a debt related to a business or rental activity as business or rental income. Military taxes online    You can use Table 1-2 to figure your income from cancellation of debt. Military taxes online   You must report this income on your tax return unless one of the following applies. Military taxes online The cancellation is intended as a gift. Military taxes online The debt is qualified farm debt. Military taxes online The debt is qualified real property business debt. Military taxes online You are insolvent or bankrupt. Military taxes online The debt is qualified principal residence indebtedness. Military taxes online File Form 982 to report the income exclusion. Military taxes online Example 1. Military taxes online Assume the same facts as in Example 1 under Amount realized on a nonrecourse debt, earlier, except Chris is personally liable for the car loan (recourse debt). Military taxes online In this case, the amount he realizes is $9,000. Military taxes online This is the lesser of the canceled debt ($10,000) or the car's fair market value ($9,000). Military taxes online Chris figures his gain or loss on the repossession by comparing the amount realized ($9,000) with his adjusted basis ($15,000). Military taxes online He has a $6,000 nondeductible loss. Military taxes online He also is treated as receiving ordinary income from cancellation of debt. Military taxes online That income is $1,000 ($10,000 − $9,000). Military taxes online This is the part of the canceled debt not included in the amount realized. Military taxes online Example 2. Military taxes online Assume the same facts as in Example 2 under Amount realized on a nonrecourse debt, earlier, except Abena is personally liable for the loan (recourse debt). Military taxes online In this case, the amount she realizes is $170,000. Military taxes online This is the lesser of the canceled debt ($180,000) or the fair market value of the house ($170,000). Military taxes online Abena figures her gain or loss on the foreclosure by comparing the amount realized ($170,000) with her adjusted basis ($175,000). Military taxes online She has a $5,000 nondeductible loss. Military taxes online She also is treated as receiving ordinary income from cancellation of debt. Military taxes online (The debt is not exempt from tax as discussed under Cancellation of debt, above. Military taxes online ) That income is $10,000 ($180,000 − $170,000). Military taxes online This is the part of the canceled debt not included in the amount realized. Military taxes online Forms 1099-A and 1099-C. Military taxes online   A lender who acquires an interest in your property in a foreclosure or repossession should send you Form 1099-A showing the information you need to figure your gain or loss. Military taxes online However, if the lender also cancels part of your debt and must file Form 1099-C, the lender may include the information about the foreclosure or repossession on that form instead of on Form 1099-A and send you Form 1099-C only. Military taxes online The lender must file Form 1099-C and send you a copy if the amount of debt canceled is $600 or more and the lender is a financial institution, credit union, federal government agency, or any organization that has a significant trade or business of lending money. Military taxes online For foreclosures or repossessions occurring in 2013, these forms should be sent to you by January 31, 2014. Military taxes online Involuntary Conversions An involuntary conversion occurs when your property is destroyed, stolen, condemned, or disposed of under the threat of condemnation and you receive other property or money in payment, such as insurance or a condemnation award. Military taxes online Involuntary conversions are also called involuntary exchanges. Military taxes online Gain or loss from an involuntary conversion of your property is usually recognized for tax purposes unless the property is your main home. Military taxes online You report the gain or deduct the loss on your tax return for the year you realize it. Military taxes online You cannot deduct a loss from an involuntary conversion of property you held for personal use unless the loss resulted from a casualty or theft. Military taxes online However, depending on the type of property you receive, you may not have to report a gain on an involuntary conversion. Military taxes online Generally, you do not report the gain if you receive property that is similar or related in service or use to the converted property. Military taxes online Your basis for the new property is the same as your basis for the converted property. Military taxes online This means that the gain is deferred until a taxable sale or exchange occurs. Military taxes online If you receive money or property that is not similar or related in service or use to the involuntarily converted property and you buy qualifying replacement property within a certain period of time, you can elect to postpone reporting the gain on the property purchased. Military taxes online This publication explains the treatment of a gain or loss from a condemnation or disposition under the threat of condemnation. Military taxes online If you have a gain or loss from the destruction or theft of property, see Publication 547. Military taxes online Condemnations A condemnation is the process by which private property is legally taken for public use without the owner's consent. Military taxes online The property may be taken by the federal government, a state government, a political subdivision, or a private organization that has the power to legally take it. Military taxes online The owner receives a condemnation award (money or property) in exchange for the property taken. Military taxes online A condemnation is like a forced sale, the owner being the seller and the condemning authority being the buyer. Military taxes online Example. Military taxes online A local government authorized to acquire land for public parks informed you that it wished to acquire your property. Military taxes online After the local government took action to condemn your property, you went to court to keep it. Military taxes online But, the court decided in favor of the local government, which took your property and paid you an amount fixed by the court. Military taxes online This is a condemnation of private property for public use. Military taxes online Threat of condemnation. Military taxes online   A threat of condemnation exists if a representative of a government body or a public official authorized to acquire property for public use informs you that the government body or official has decided to acquire your property. Military taxes online You must have reasonable grounds to believe that, if you do not sell voluntarily, your property will be condemned. Military taxes online   The sale of your property to someone other than the condemning authority will also qualify as an involuntary conversion, provided you have reasonable grounds to believe that your property will be condemned. Military taxes online If the buyer of this property knows at the time of purchase that it will be condemned and sells it to the condemning authority, this sale also qualifies as an involuntary conversion. Military taxes online Reports of condemnation. Military taxes online   A threat of condemnation exists if you learn of a decision to acquire your property for public use through a report in a newspaper or other news medium, and this report is confirmed by a representative of the government body or public official involved. Military taxes online You must have reasonable grounds to believe that they will take necessary steps to condemn your property if you do not sell voluntarily. Military taxes online If you relied on oral statements made by a government representative or public official, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) may ask you to get written confirmation of the statements. Military taxes online Example. Military taxes online Your property lies along public utility lines. Military taxes online The utility company has the authority to condemn your property. Military taxes online The company informs you that it intends to acquire your property by negotiation or condemnation. Military taxes online A threat of condemnation exists when you receive the notice. Military taxes online Related property voluntarily sold. Military taxes online   A voluntary sale of your property may be treated as a forced sale that qualifies as an involuntary conversion if the property had a substantial economic relationship to property of yours that was condemned. Military taxes online A substantial economic relationship exists if together the properties were one economic unit. Military taxes online You also must show that the condemned property could not reasonably or adequately be replaced. Military taxes online You can elect to postpone reporting the gain by buying replacement property. Military taxes online See Postponement of Gain, later. Military taxes online Gain or Loss From Condemnations If your property was condemned or disposed of under the threat of condemnation, figure your gain or loss by comparing the adjusted basis of your condemned property with your net condemnation award. Military taxes online If your net condemnation award is more than the adjusted basis of the condemned property, you have a gain. Military taxes online You can postpone reporting gain from a condemnation if you buy replacement property. Military taxes online If only part of your property is condemned, you can treat the cost of restoring the remaining part to its former usefulness as the cost of replacement property. Military taxes online See Postponement of Gain, later. Military taxes online If your net condemnation award is less than your adjusted basis, you have a loss. Military taxes online If your loss is from property you held for personal use, you cannot deduct it. Military taxes online You must report any deductible loss in the tax year it happened. Military taxes online You can use Part 2 of Table 1-3 to figure your gain or loss from a condemnation award. Military taxes online Main home condemned. Military taxes online   If you have a gain because your main home is condemned, you generally can exclude the gain from your income as if you had sold or exchanged your home. Military taxes online You may be able to exclude up to $250,000 of the gain (up to $500,000 if married filing jointly). Military taxes online For information on this exclusion, see Publication 523. Military taxes online If your gain is more than you can exclude but you buy replacement property, you may be able to postpone reporting the rest of the gain. Military taxes online See Postponement of Gain, later. Military taxes online Table 1-3. Military taxes online Worksheet for Condemnations Part 1. Military taxes online Gain from severance damages.

Military taxes online   A condemnation award is the money you are paid or the value of other property you receive for your condemned property. Military taxes online The award is also the amount you are paid for the sale of your property under threat of condemnation. Military taxes online Payment of your debts. Military taxes online   Amounts taken out of the award to pay your debts are considered paid to you. Military taxes online Amounts the government pays directly to the holder of a mortgage or lien against your property are part of your award, even if the debt attaches to the property and is not your personal liability. Military taxes online Example. Military taxes online The state condemned your property for public use. Military taxes online The award was set at $200,000. Military taxes online The state paid you only $148,000 because it paid $50,000 to your mortgage holder and $2,000 accrued real estate taxes. Military taxes online You are considered to have received the entire $200,000 as a condemnation award. Military taxes online Interest on award. Military taxes online   If the condemning authority pays you interest for its delay in paying your award, it is not part of the condemnation award. Military taxes online You must report the interest separately as ordinary income. Military taxes online Payments to relocate. Military taxes online   Payments you receive to relocate and replace housing because you have been displaced from your home, business, or farm as a result of federal or federally assisted programs are not part of the condemnation award. Military taxes online Do not include them in your income. Military taxes online Replacement housing payments used to buy new property are included in the property's basis as part of your cost. Military taxes online Net condemnation award. Military taxes online   A net condemnation award is the total award you received, or are considered to have received, for the condemned property minus your expenses of obtaining the award. Military taxes online If only a part of your property was condemned, you also must reduce the award by any special assessment levied against the part of the property you retain. Military taxes online This is discussed later under Special assessment taken out of award. Military taxes online Severance damages. Military taxes online    Severance damages are not part of the award paid for the property condemned. Military taxes online They are paid to you if part of your property is condemned and the value of the part you keep is decreased because of the condemnation. Military taxes online   For example, you may receive severance damages if your property is subject to flooding because you sell flowage easement rights (the condemned property) under threat of condemnation. Military taxes online Severance damages also may be given to you if, because part of your property is condemned for a highway, you must replace fences, dig new wells or ditches, or plant trees to restore your remaining property to the same usefulness it had before the condemnation. Military taxes online   The contracting parties should agree on the specific amount of severance damages in writing. Military taxes online If this is not done, all proceeds from the condemning authority are considered awarded for your condemned property. Military taxes online   You cannot make a completely new allocation of the total award after the transaction is completed. Military taxes online However, you can show how much of the award both parties intended for severance damages. Military taxes online The severance damages part of the award is determined from all the facts and circumstances. Military taxes online Example. Military taxes online You sold part of your property to the state under threat of condemnation. Military taxes online The contract you and the condemning authority signed showed only the total purchase price. Military taxes online It did not specify a fixed sum for severance damages. Military taxes online However, at settlement, the condemning authority gave you closing papers showing clearly the part of the purchase price that was for severance damages. Military taxes online You may treat this part as severance damages. Military taxes online Treatment of severance damages. Military taxes online   Your net severance damages are treated as the amount realized from an involuntary conversion of the remaining part of your property. Military taxes online Use them to reduce the basis of the remaining property. Military taxes online If the amount of severance damages is based on damage to a specific part of the property you kept, reduce the basis of only that part by the net severance damages. Military taxes online   If your net severance damages are more than the basis of your retained property, you have a gain. Military taxes online You may be able to postpone reporting the gain. Military taxes online See Postponement of Gain, later. Military taxes online    You can use Part 1 of Table 1-3 to figure any gain from severance damages and to refigure the adjusted basis of the remaining part of your property. Military taxes online Net severance damages. Military taxes online   To figure your net severance damages, you first must reduce your severance damages by your expenses in obtaining the damages. Military taxes online You then reduce them by any special assessment (described later) levied against the remaining part of the property and retained out of the award by the condemning authority. Military taxes online The balance is your net severance damages. Military taxes online Expenses of obtaining a condemnation award and severance damages. Military taxes online   Subtract the expenses of obtaining a condemnation award, such as legal, engineering, and appraisal fees, from the total award. Military taxes online Also, subtract the expenses of obtaining severance damages, which may include similar expenses, from the severance damages paid to you. Military taxes online If you cannot determine which part of your expenses is for each part of the condemnation proceeds, you must make a proportionate allocation. Military taxes online Example. Military taxes online You receive a condemnation award and severance damages. Military taxes online One-fourth of the total was designated as severance damages in your agreement with the condemning authority. Military taxes online You had legal expenses for the entire condemnation proceeding. Military taxes online You cannot determine how much of your legal expenses is for each part of the condemnation proceeds. Military taxes online You must allocate one-fourth of your legal expenses to the severance damages and the other three-fourths to the condemnation award. Military taxes online Special assessment retained out of award. Military taxes online   When only part of your property is condemned, a special assessment levied against the remaining property may be retained by the governing body out of your condemnation award. Military taxes online An assessment may be levied if the remaining part of your property benefited by the improvement resulting from the condemnation. Military taxes online Examples of improvements that may cause a special assessment are widening a street and installing a sewer. Military taxes online   To figure your net condemnation award, you must reduce the amount of the award by the assessment retained out of the award. Military taxes online Example. Military taxes online To widen the street in front of your home, the city condemned a 25-foot deep strip of your land. Military taxes online You were awarded $5,000 for this and spent $300 to get the award. Military taxes online Before paying the award, the city levied a special assessment of $700 for the street improvement against your remaining property. Military taxes online The city then paid you only $4,300. Military taxes online Your net award is $4,000 ($5,000 total award minus $300 expenses in obtaining the award and $700 for the special assessment retained). Military taxes online If the $700 special assessment was not retained out of the award and you were paid $5,000, your net award would be $4,700 ($5,000 − $300). Military taxes online The net award would not change, even if you later paid the assessment from the amount you received. Military taxes online Severance damages received. Military taxes online   If severance damages are included in the condemnation proceeds, the special assessment retained out of the severance damages is first used to reduce the severance damages. Military taxes online Any balance of the special assessment is used to reduce the condemnation award. Military taxes online Example. Military taxes online You were awarded $4,000 for the condemnation of your property and $1,000 for severance damages. Military taxes online You spent $300 to obtain the severance damages. Military taxes online A special assessment of $800 was retained out of the award. Military taxes online The $1,000 severance damages are reduced to zero by first subtracting the $300 expenses and then $700 of the special assessment. Military taxes online Your $4,000 condemnation award is reduced by the $100 balance of the special assessment, leaving a $3,900 net condemnation award. Military taxes online Part business or rental. Military taxes online   If you used part of your condemned property as your home and part as business or rental property, treat each part as a separate property. Military taxes online Figure your gain or loss separately because gain or loss on each part may be treated differently. Military taxes online   Some examples of this type of property are a building in which you live and operate a grocery, and a building in which you live on the first floor and rent out the second floor. Military taxes online Example. Military taxes online You sold your building for $24,000 under threat of condemnation to a public utility company that had the authority to condemn. Military taxes online You rented half the building and lived in the other half. Military taxes online You paid $25,000 for the building and spent an additional $1,000 for a new roof. Military taxes online You claimed allowable depreciation of $4,600 on the rental half. Military taxes online You spent $200 in legal expenses to obtain the condemnation award. Military taxes online Figure your gain or loss as follows. Military taxes online     Resi- dential Part Busi- ness Part 1) Condemnation award received $12,000 $12,000 2) Minus: Legal expenses, $200 100 100 3) Net condemnation award $11,900 $11,900 4) Adjusted basis:       ½ of original cost, $25,000 $12,500 $12,500   Plus: ½ of cost of roof, $1,000 500 500   Total $13,000 $13,000 5) Minus: Depreciation   4,600 6) Adjusted basis, business part   $8,400 7) (Loss) on residential property ($1,100)   8) Gain on business property $3,500 The loss on the residential part of the property is not deductible. Military taxes online Postponement of Gain Do not report the gain on condemned property if you receive only property that is similar or related in service or use to the condemned property. Military taxes online Your basis for the new property is the same as your basis for the old. Military taxes online Money or unlike property received. Military taxes online   You ordinarily must report the gain if you receive money or unlike property. Military taxes online You can elect to postpone reporting the gain if you buy property that is similar or related in service or use to the condemned property within the replacement period, discussed later. Military taxes online You also can elect to postpone reporting the gain if you buy a controlling interest (at least 80%) in a corporation owning property that is similar or related in service or use to the condemned property. Military taxes online See Controlling interest in a corporation, later. Military taxes online   To postpone reporting all the gain, you must buy replacement property costing at least as much as the amount realized for the condemned property. Military taxes online If the cost of the replacement property is less than the amount realized, you must report the gain up to the unspent part of the amount realized. Military taxes online   The basis of the replacement property is its cost, reduced by the postponed gain. Military taxes online Also, if your replacement property is stock in a corporation that owns property similar or related in service or use, the corporation generally will reduce its basis in its assets by the amount by which you reduce your basis in the stock. Military taxes online See Controlling interest in a corporation, later. Military taxes online You can use Part 3 of Table 1-3 to figure the gain you must report and your postponed gain. Military taxes online Postponing gain on severance damages. Military taxes online   If you received severance damages for part of your property because another part was condemned and you buy replacement property, you can elect to postpone reporting gain. Military taxes online See Treatment of severance damages, earlier. Military taxes online You can postpone reporting all your gain if the replacement property costs at least as much as your net severance damages plus your net condemnation award (if resulting in gain). Military taxes online   You also can make this election if you spend the severance damages, together with other money you received for the condemned property (if resulting in gain), to acquire nearby property that will allow you to continue your business. Military taxes online If suitable nearby property is not available and you are forced to sell the remaining property and relocate in order to continue your business, see Postponing gain on the sale of related property, next. Military taxes online   If you restore the remaining property to its former usefulness, you can treat the cost of restoring it as the cost of replacement property. Military taxes online Postponing gain on the sale of related property. Military taxes online   If you sell property that is related to the condemned property and then buy replacement property, you can elect to postpone reporting gain on the sale. Military taxes online You must meet the requirements explained earlier under Related property voluntarily sold. Military taxes online You can postpone reporting all your gain if the replacement property costs at least as much as the amount realized from the sale plus your net condemnation award (if resulting in gain) plus your net severance damages, if any (if resulting in gain). Military taxes online Buying replacement property from a related person. Military taxes online   Certain taxpayers cannot postpone reporting gain from a condemnation if they buy the replacement property from a related person. Military taxes online For information on related persons, see Nondeductible Loss under Sales and Exchanges Between Related Persons in chapter 2. Military taxes online   This rule applies to the following taxpayers. Military taxes online C corporations. Military taxes online Partnerships in which more than 50% of the capital or profits interest is owned by  C corporations. Military taxes online All others (including individuals, partnerships (other than those in (2)), and S corporations) if the total realized gain for the tax year on all involuntarily converted properties on which there is realized gain of more than $100,000. Military taxes online   For taxpayers described in (3) above, gains cannot be offset with any losses when determining whether the total gain is more than $100,000. Military taxes online If the property is owned by a partnership, the $100,000 limit applies to the partnership and each partner. Military taxes online If the property is owned by an S corporation, the $100,000 limit applies to the S corporation and each shareholder. Military taxes online Exception. Military taxes online   This rule does not apply if the related person acquired the property from an unrelated person within the replacement period. Military taxes online Advance payment. Military taxes online   If you pay a contractor in advance to build your replacement property, you have not bought replacement property unless it is finished before the end of the replacement period (discussed later). Military taxes online Replacement property. Military taxes online   To postpone reporting gain, you must buy replacement property for the specific purpose of replacing your condemned property. Military taxes online You do not have to use the actual funds from the condemnation award to acquire the replacement property. Military taxes online Property you acquire by gift or inheritance does not qualify as replacement property. Military taxes online Similar or related in service or use. Military taxes online   Your replacement property must be similar or related in service or use to the property it replaces. Military taxes online   If the condemned property is real property you held for productive use in your trade or business or for investment (other than property held mainly for sale), like-kind property to be held either for productive use in trade or business or for investment will be treated as property similar or related in service or use. Military taxes online For a discussion of like-kind property, see Like-Kind Property under Like-Kind Exchanges, later. Military taxes online Owner-user. Military taxes online   If you are an owner-user, similar or related in service or use means that replacement property must function in the same way as the property it replaces. Military taxes online Example. Military taxes online Your home was condemned and you invested the proceeds from the condemnation in a grocery store. Military taxes online Your replacement property is not similar or related in service or use to the condemned property. Military taxes online To be similar or related in service or use, your replacement property must also be used by you as your home. Military taxes online Owner-investor. Military taxes online   If you are an owner-investor, similar or related in service or use means that any replacement property must have the same relationship of services or uses to you as the property it replaces. Military taxes online You decide this by determining all the following information. Military taxes online Whether the properties are of similar service to you. Military taxes online The nature of the business risks connected with the properties. Military taxes online What the properties demand of you in the way of management, service, and relations to your tenants. Military taxes online Example. Military taxes online You owned land and a building you rented to a manufacturing company. Military taxes online The building was condemned. Military taxes online During the replacement period, you had a new building built on other land you already owned. Military taxes online You rented out the new building for use as a wholesale grocery warehouse. Military taxes online The replacement property is also rental property, so the two properties are considered similar or related in service or use if there is a similarity in all the following areas. Military taxes online Your management activities. Military taxes online The amount and kind of services you provide to your tenants. Military taxes online The nature of your business risks connected with the properties. Military taxes online Leasehold replaced with fee simple property. Military taxes online   Fee simple property you will use in your trade or business or for investment can qualify as replacement property that is similar or related in service or use to a condemned leasehold if you use it in the same business and for the identical purpose as the condemned leasehold. Military taxes online   A fee simple property interest generally is a property interest that entitles the owner to the entire property with unconditional power to dispose of it during his or her lifetime. Military taxes online A leasehold is property held under a lease, usually for a term of years. Military taxes online Outdoor advertising display replaced with real property. Military taxes online   You can elect to treat an outdoor advertising display as real property. Military taxes online If you make this election and you replace the display with real property in which you hold a different kind of interest, your replacement property can qualify as like-kind property. Military taxes online For example, real property bought to replace a destroyed billboard and leased property on which the billboard was located qualify as property of a like-kind. Military taxes online   You can make this election only if you did not claim a section 179 deduction for the display. Military taxes online You cannot cancel this election unless you get the consent of the IRS. Military taxes online   An outdoor advertising display is a sign or device rigidly assembled and permanently attached to the ground, a building, or any other permanent structure used to display a commercial or other advertisement to the public. Military taxes online Substituting replacement property. Military taxes online   Once you designate certain property as replacement property on your tax return, you cannot substitute other qualified property. Military taxes online But, if your previously designated replacement property does not qualify, you can substitute qualified property if you acquire it within the replacement period. Military taxes online Controlling interest in a corporation. Military taxes online   You can replace property by acquiring a controlling interest in a corporation that owns property similar or related in service or use to your condemned property. Military taxes online You have controlling interest if you own stock having at least 80% of the combined voting power of all classes of stock entitled to vote and at least 80% of the total number of shares of all other classes of stock of the corporation. Military taxes online Basis adjustment to corporation's property. Military taxes online   The basis of property held by the corporation at the time you acquired control must be reduced by your postponed gain, if any. Military taxes online You are not required to reduce the adjusted basis of the corporation's properties below your adjusted basis in the corporation's stock (determined after reduction by your postponed gain). Military taxes online   Allocate this reduction to the following classes of property in the order shown below. Military taxes online Property that is similar or related in service or use to the condemned property. Military taxes online Depreciable property not reduced in (1). Military taxes online All other property. Military taxes online If two or more properties fall in the same class, allocate the reduction to each property in proportion to the adjusted basis of all the properties in that class. Military taxes online The reduced basis of any single property cannot be less than zero. Military taxes online Main home replaced. Military taxes online   If your gain from a condemnation of your main home is more than you can exclude from your income (see Main home condemned under Gain or Loss From Condemnations, earlier), you can postpone reporting the rest of the gain by buying replacement property that is similar or related in service or use. Military taxes online The replacement property must cost at least as much as the amount realized from the condemnation minus the excluded gain. Military taxes online   You must reduce the basis of your replacement property by the postponed gain. Military taxes online Also, if you postpone reporting any part of your gain under these rules, you are treated as having owned and used the replacement property as your main home for the period you owned and used the condemned property as your main home. Military taxes online Example. Military taxes online City authorities condemned your home that you had used as a personal residence for 5 years prior to the condemnation. Military taxes online The city paid you a condemnation award of $400,000. Military taxes online Your adjusted basis in the property was $80,000. Military taxes online You realize a gain of $320,000 ($400,000 − $80,000). Military taxes online You purchased a new home for $100,000. Military taxes online You can exclude $250,000 of the realized gain from your gross income. Military taxes online The amount realized is then treated as being $150,000 ($400,000 − $250,000) and the gain realized is $70,000 ($150,000 amount realized − $80,000 adjusted basis). Military taxes online You must recognize $50,000 of the gain ($150,000 amount realized − $100,000 cost of new home). Military taxes online The remaining $20,000 of realized gain is postponed. Military taxes online Your basis in the new home is $80,000 ($100,000 cost − $20,000 gain postponed). Military taxes online Replacement period. Military taxes online   To postpone reporting your gain from a condemnation, you must buy replacement property within a certain period of time. Military taxes online This is the replacement period. Military taxes online   The replacement period for a condemnation begins on the earlier of the following dates. Military taxes online The date on which you disposed of the condemned property. Military taxes online The date on which the threat of condemnation began. Military taxes online   The replacement period generally ends 2 years after the end of the first tax year in which any part of the gain on the condemnation is realized. Military taxes online However, see the exceptions below. Military taxes online Three-year replacement period for certain property. Military taxes online   If real property held for use in a trade or business or for investment (not including property held primarily for sale) is condemned, the replacement period ends 3 years after the end of the first tax year in which any part of the gain on the condemnation is realized. Military taxes online However, this 3-year replacement period cannot be used if you replace the condemned property by acquiring control of a corporation owning property that is similar or related in service or use.

Military taxes online Weather-related sales of livestock in an area eligible for federal assistance. Military taxes online   Generally, if the sale or exchange of livestock is due to drought, flood, or other weather-related conditions in an area eligible for federal assistance, the replacement period ends 4 years after the close of the first tax year in which you realize any part of your gain from the sale or exchange. Military taxes online    If the weather-related conditions continue for longer than 3 years, the replacement period may be extended on a regional basis until the end of your first drought-free year for the applicable region. Military taxes online See Notice 2006-82. Military taxes online You can find Notice 2006-82 on page 529 of Internal Revenue Bulletin 2006-39 at www. Military taxes online irs. Military taxes online gov/irb/2006-39_IRB/ar13. Military taxes online html. Military taxes online    Each year, the IRS publishes a list of counties, districts, cities, or parishes for which exceptional, extreme, or severe drought was reported during the preceding 12 months. Military taxes online If you qualified for a 4-year replacement period for livestock sold or exchanged on account of drought and your replacement period is scheduled to expire at the end of 2013 (or at the end of the tax year that includes August 31, 2013), see Notice 2013-62. Military taxes online You can find Notice 2013-62 on page 466 of Internal Revenue Bulletin 2013-45 at www. Military taxes online irs. Military taxes online gov/irb/2013-45_IRB/ar04. Military taxes online html. Military taxes online The replacement period will be extended under Notice 2006-82 if the applicable region is on the list included in Notice 2013-62. Military taxes online Determining when gain is realized. Military taxes online   If you are a cash basis taxpayer, you realize gain when you receive payments that are more than your basis in the property. Military taxes online If the condemning authority makes deposits with the court, you realize gain when you withdraw (or have the right to withdraw) amounts that are more than your basis. Military taxes online   This applies even if the amounts received are only partial or advance payments and the full award has not yet been determined. Military taxes online A replacement will be too late if you wait for a final determination that does not take place in the applicable replacement period after you first realize gain. Military taxes online   For accrual basis taxpayers, gain (if any) accrues in the earlier year when either of the following occurs. Military taxes online All events have occurred that fix the right to the condemnation award and the amount can be determined with reasonable accuracy. Military taxes online All or part of the award is actually or constructively received. Military taxes online For example, if you have an absolute right to a part of a condemnation award when it is deposited with the court, the amount deposited accrues in the year the deposit is made even though the full amount of the award is still contested. Military taxes online Replacement property bought before the condemnation. Military taxes online   If you buy your replacement property after there is a threat of condemnation but before the actual condemnation and you still hold the replacement property at the time of the condemnation, you have bought your replacement property within the replacement period. Military taxes online Property you acquire before there is a threat of condemnation does not qualify as replacement property acquired within the replacement period. Military taxes online Example. Military taxes online On April 3, 2012, city authorities notified you that your property would be condemned. Military taxes online On June 5, 2012, you acquired property to replace the property to be condemned. Military taxes online You still had the new property when the city took possession of your old property on September 4, 2013. Military taxes online You have made a replacement within the replacement period. Military taxes online Extension. Military taxes online   You can request an extension of the replacement period from the IRS director for your area. Military taxes online You should apply before the end of the replacement period. Military taxes online Your request should explain in detail why you need an extension. Military taxes online The IRS will consider a request filed within a reasonable time after the replacement period if you can show reasonable cause for the delay. Military taxes online An extension of the replacement period will be granted if you can show reasonable cause for not making the replacement within the regular period. Military taxes online   Ordinarily, requests for extensions are granted near the end of the replacement period or the extended replacement period. Military taxes online Extensions are usually limited to a period of 1 year or less. Military taxes online The high market value or scarcity of replacement property is not a sufficient reason for granting an extension. Military taxes online If your replacement property is being built and you clearly show that the replacement or restoration cannot be made within the replacement peri
