More than Half of all Income Tax Returns Have Been Received. IRS Issues Publication on Business Expenses

 

IR-2014-32, March 20, 2014

WASHINGTON — With the tax deadline getting closer, the IRS has received more than half of all the returns it expects to receive during 2014, the agency announced today. The IRS received more than 75 million individual tax returns as of March 14 and projects that it will receive about 149 million individual income tax returns by the end of the year.

Millions of individual tax filers have business income either as sole proprietors or as sub contractors. Many individual filers also have unreimbursed business expenses. The IRS recently issued Publication 535, Business Expenses, which provides valuable information for these filers. The publication contains useful hints for Tax Year 2013, for which many taxpayers are still completing returns and for Tax Year 2014, for which taxpayers are tracking expenses and making financial decisions.

For Tax Year 2013

Optional safe harbor method to determine the business use of a home deduction, also known as the simplified option for claiming the home office deduction. Beginning in 2013, taxpayers can use the optional safe harbor method to determine the deduction for the business use of a home. 

Standard mileage rate. Beginning in 2013, the standard mileage rate for the cost of operating a car, van, pickup, or panel truck for each mile of business use is 56.5 cents per mile.

Additional Medicare Tax. Beginning in 2013, a 0.9% Additional Medicare Tax applies to Medicare wages, railroad retirement (RRTA) compensation, and self-employment income that are more than:

  • $125,000 if married filing separately,
  • $250,000 if married filing jointly, or
  • $200,000 if single, head of household, or qualifying widow(er) with dependent child.

Medicare wages and self-employment income are combined to determine if a taxpayer’s income exceeds the threshold. RRTA compensation should be separately compared to the threshold. 

For Tax Year 2014

Standard mileage rate. Beginning in 2014, the standard mileage rate for the cost of operating a car, van, pickup, or panel truck for each mile of business use is 56 cents per mile.
