Taxes for military 1. Taxes for military   Canceled Debts Table of Contents General RulesForm 1099-C Discounts and loan modifications Sales or other dispositions (such as foreclosures and repossessions) Abandonments Stockholder debt This chapter discusses the tax treatment of canceled debts. Taxes for military General Rules Generally, if a debt for which you are personally liable is forgiven or discharged for less than the full amount owed, the debt is considered canceled in whatever amount it remained unpaid. Taxes for military There are exceptions to this rule, discussed under Exceptions , later. Taxes for military Generally, you must include the canceled debt in your income. Taxes for military However, you may be able to exclude the canceled debt. Taxes for military See Exclusions , later. Taxes for military Example. Taxes for military John owed $1,000 to Mary. Taxes for military Mary agreed to accept and John paid $400 in satisfaction of the entire debt. Taxes for military John has canceled debt of $600. Taxes for military Example. Taxes for military Margaret owed $1,000 to Henry. Taxes for military Henry and Margaret agreed that Margaret would provide Henry with services (instead of money) in full satisfaction of the debt. Taxes for military Margaret does not have canceled debt. Taxes for military Instead, she has income from services. Taxes for military A debt includes any indebtedness: For which you are liable, or Subject to which you hold property. Taxes for military Debt for which you are personally liable is recourse debt. Taxes for military All other debt is nonrecourse debt. Taxes for military If you are not personally liable for the debt, you do not have ordinary income from the cancellation of debt unless you retain the collateral and either: The lender offers a discount for the early payment of the debt, or The lender agrees to a loan modification that results in the reduction of the principal balance of the debt. Taxes for military See Discounts and loan modifications , later. Taxes for military However, upon the disposition of the property securing a nonrecourse debt, the amount realized includes the entire unpaid amount of the debt, not just the FMV of the property. Taxes for military As a result, you may realize a gain or loss if the outstanding debt immediately before the disposition is more or less than your adjusted basis in the property. Taxes for military For more details on figuring your gain or loss, see chapter 2 of this publication or see Publication 544. Taxes for military There are several exceptions and exclusions that may result in part or all of a canceled debt being nontaxable. Taxes for military See Exceptions and Exclusions, later. Taxes for military You must report any taxable canceled debt as ordinary income on: Form 1040 or Form 1040NR, line 21, if the debt is a nonbusiness debt; Schedule C (Form 1040), line 6 (or Schedule C-EZ (Form 1040), line 1), if the debt is related to a nonfarm sole proprietorship; Schedule E (Form 1040), line 3, if the debt is related to nonfarm rental of real property; Form 4835, line 6, if the debt is related to a farm rental activity for which you use Form 4835 to report farm rental income based on crops or livestock produced by a tenant; or Schedule F (Form 1040), line 8, if the debt is farm debt and you are a farmer. Taxes for military Form 1099-C If you receive a Form 1099-C, that means an applicable entity has reported an identifiable event to the IRS regarding a debt you owe. Taxes for military The identifiable event may be an actual cancellation of the debt or it may be an event the applicable entity is required, solely for purposes of reporting to the IRS, to treat as a cancellation of debt. Taxes for military For information on the reasons an applicable entity files Form 1099-C, see Identifiable event codes, later. Taxes for military Unless you meet one of the exceptions or exclusions discussed later, this canceled debt is ordinary income and must be reported on the appropriate form discussed above. Taxes for military An applicable entity includes: A federal government agency, A financial institution, A credit union, and Any organization a significant trade or business of which is lending money. Taxes for military Identifiable event codes. Taxes for military    Box 6 of Form 1099-C should indicate the reason the creditor filed this form. Taxes for military The codes shown in box 6 are explained below. Taxes for military Also see the chart after the explanation for a quick reference guide for the codes used in Box 6. Taxes for military Note. Taxes for military Codes A through G and I identify specific occurrences resulting from an actual discharge of indebtedness. Taxes for military However, Code H, Expiration of nonpayment testing period, does not necessarily identify an actual discharge of indebtedness. Taxes for military Code A — Bankruptcy. Taxes for military Code A is used to identify cancellation of debt as a result of a title 11 bankruptcy case. Taxes for military See Bankruptcy , later. Taxes for military Code B — Other judicial debt relief. Taxes for military Code B is used to identify cancellation of debt as a result of a receivership, foreclosure, or similar federal or state court proceeding other than bankruptcy. Taxes for military Code C — Statute of limitations or expiration of deficiency period. Taxes for military Code C is used to identify cancellation of debt either when the statute of limitations for collecting the debt expires or when the statutory period for filing a claim or beginning a deficiency judgment proceeding expires. Taxes for military In the case of the expiration of a statute of limitations, an identifiable event occurs only if and when your affirmative defense of the statute of limitations is upheld in a final judgment or decision in a judicial proceeding, and the period for appealing the judgment or decision has expired. Taxes for military Code D — Foreclosure election. Taxes for military Code D is used to identify cancellation of debt when the creditor elects foreclosure remedies that statutorily end or bar the creditor's right to pursue collection of the debt. Taxes for military This event applies to a mortgage lender or holder who is barred from pursuing debt collection after a power of sale in the mortgage or deed of trust is exercised. Taxes for military Code E — Debt relief from probate or similar proceeding. Taxes for military Code E is used to identify cancellation of debt as a result of a probate court or similar legal proceeding. Taxes for military Code F — By agreement. Taxes for military Code F is used to identify cancellation of debt as a result of an agreement between the creditor and the debtor to cancel the debt at less than full consideration. Taxes for military Code G — Decision or policy to discontinue collection. Taxes for military Code G is used to identify cancellation of debt as a result of a decision or a defined policy of the creditor to discontinue collection activity and cancel the debt. Taxes for military For purposes of this identifiable event, a defined policy includes both a written policy and the creditor's established business practice. Taxes for military Code H — Expiration of nonpayment testing period. Taxes for military Code H is used to indicate that the creditor has not received a payment on the debt during a testing period ending on December 31, 2013. Taxes for military The testing period is a 36-month period increased by the number of months the creditor was prevented from engaging in collection activity by a stay in bankruptcy or similar bar under state or local law. Taxes for military This identifiable event applies only for a creditor that is a financial institution or credit union (and certain of their subsidiaries), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), Resolution Trust Corporation (RTC), National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), and other Federal executive agencies. Taxes for military Expiration of the nonpayment testing period does not necessarily result from an actual discharge of indebtedness. Taxes for military Code I — Other actual discharge before identifiable event. Taxes for military Code I is used to identify an actual cancellation of debt that occurs before any of the identifiable events described in codes A through H. Taxes for military Form 1099-C Reference Guide for Box 6 Identifiable Event Codes A Bankruptcy B Other judicial debt relief C Statute of limitations or expiration of deficiency period D Foreclosure election E Debt relief from probate or similar proceeding F By agreement G Decision or policy to discontinue collection H Expiration of nonpayment testing period I Other actual discharge before identifiable event Even if you did not receive a Form 1099-C, you must report canceled debt as gross income on your tax return unless one of the exceptions or exclusions described later applies. Taxes for military Amount of canceled debt. Taxes for military    The amount in box 2 of Form 1099-C may represent some or all of the debt that has been canceled or treated as canceled. Taxes for military The amount in box 2 will include principal and may include interest and other nonprincipal amounts (such as fees or penalties). Taxes for military Unless you meet one of the exceptions or exclusions discussed later, the amount of the debt that has been canceled is ordinary income and must be reported on the appropriate form as discussed earlier. Taxes for military Interest included in canceled debt. Taxes for military    If any interest is included in the amount of canceled debt in box 2, it will be shown in box 3. Taxes for military Whether the interest portion of the canceled debt must be included in your income depends on whether the interest would be deductible if you paid it. Taxes for military See Deductible Debt under Exceptions, later. Taxes for military Persons who each receive a Form 1099-C showing the full amount of debt. Taxes for military    If you and another person were jointly and severally liable for a canceled debt, each of you may get a Form 1099-C showing the entire amount of the canceled debt. Taxes for military However, you may not have to report that entire amount as income. Taxes for military The amount, if any, you must report depends on all the facts and circumstances, including: State law, The amount of debt proceeds each person received, How much of any interest deduction from the debt was claimed by each person, How much of the basis of any co-owned property bought with the debt proceeds was allocated to each co-owner, and Whether the canceled debt qualifies for any of the exceptions or exclusions described in this publication. Taxes for military See Example 3 under Insolvency, later. Taxes for military Discounts and loan modifications If a lender discounts (reduces) the principal balance of a loan because you pay it off early, or agrees to a loan modification (a “workout”) that includes a reduction in the principal balance of a loan, the amount of the discount or the amount of principal reduction is canceled debt. Taxes for military However, if the debt is nonrecourse and you did not retain the collateral, you do not have cancellation of the debt income. Taxes for military The amount of the canceled debt must be included in income unless one of the exceptions or exclusions described later applies. Taxes for military For more details, see Exceptions and Exclusions, later. Taxes for military Sales or other dispositions (such as foreclosures and repossessions) Recourse debt. Taxes for military   If you owned property that was subject to a recourse debt in excess of the FMV of the property, the lender's foreclosure or repossession of the property is treated as a sale or disposition of the property by you and may result in your realization of gain or loss. Taxes for military The gain or loss on the disposition of the property is measured by the difference between the FMV of the property at the time of the disposition and your adjusted basis (usually your cost) in the property. Taxes for military The character of the gain or loss (such as ordinary or capital) is determined by the character of the property. Taxes for military If the lender forgives all or part of the amount of the debt in excess of the FMV of the property, the cancellation of the excess debt may result in ordinary income. Taxes for military The ordinary income from the cancellation of debt (the excess of the canceled debt over the FMV of the property) must be included in your gross income reported on your tax return unless one of the exceptions or exclusions described later applies. Taxes for military For more details, see Exceptions and Exclusions, later. Taxes for military Nonrecourse debt. Taxes for military   If you owned property that was subject to a nonrecourse debt in excess of the FMV of the property, the lender's foreclosure on the property does not result in ordinary income from the cancellation of debt. Taxes for military The entire amount of the nonrecourse debt is treated as an amount realized on the disposition of the property. Taxes for military The gain or loss on the disposition of the property is measured by the difference between the total amount realized (the entire amount of the nonrecourse debt plus the amount of cash and the FMV of any property received) and your adjusted basis in the property. Taxes for military The character of the gain or loss is determined by the character of the property. Taxes for military More information. Taxes for military    See Publications 523, 544, and 551, and chapter 2 of this publication for more details. Taxes for military Abandonments Recourse debt. Taxes for military   If you abandon property that secures a debt for which you are personally liable (recourse debt) and the debt is canceled, you will realize ordinary income equal to the canceled debt. Taxes for military You must report this income on your tax return unless one of the exceptions or exclusions described later applies. Taxes for military For more details, see Exceptions and Exclusions, later. Taxes for military This income is separate from any amount realized from the abandonment of the property. Taxes for military For more details, see chapter 3. Taxes for military Nonrecourse debt. Taxes for military   If you abandon property that secures a debt for which you are not personally liable (nonrecourse debt), you may realize gain or loss but will not have cancellation of indebtedness income. Taxes for military Stockholder debt If you are a stockholder in a corporation and the corporation cancels or forgives your debt to it, the canceled debt is a constructive distribution.

Hurricane Grant Guidelines Now Available

IR-2008-115, Oct. 10, 2008

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service today released a notice designed to help eligible homeowners who received federal reimbursement grants stemming from Hurricanes Katrina, Rita or Wilma take advantage of a new tax provision.

Notice 2008-95 provides guidelines to homeowners who received these grants, including the Louisiana Road Home Grants and the Mississippi Development Authority Hurricane Katrina Homeowner Grants.

The Housing and Economic Recovery Act, enacted this summer, included the new provision, aimed at helping grant recipients who previously claimed hurricane-related disaster-loss deductions on their main home. The new law gives affected homeowners the option of adjusting previously claimed deductions by treating their federal reimbursement grants as reimbursement for the losses they suffered on their main home from Hurricanes Katrina, Rita or Wilma.

Before this change, homeowners who claimed casualty loss deductions and received grants in a later tax year as reimbursement for the loss were required by law to pay tax on part or all of the grant to compensate for the tax benefit of the prior deduction. While individual circumstances varied, this meant that some taxpayers ended up paying more tax on the grant than they saved by claiming the deduction.

The notice explains how eligible taxpayers can amend prior-year returns to reduce the casualty loss deduction by the amount of the grant, and explains that taxpayers have one year to pay back any resulting tax due, penalty-free and interest-free. To qualify for this relief, these amended returns must be filed by July 30, 2009, and the entire resulting tax due paid by July 30, 2010, in most cases. The notice also provides special instructions for those taxpayers who have already filed an amended return.

Taxpayers should write the words, “Hurricane Grant Relief” in dark, bold letters at the top of their amended return, Form 1040X, and mail it to: Internal Revenue Service Center, Austin, TX 73301-0255. Amended returns cannot be filed electronically.

The IRS cautioned that, although filing an amended return may be a good option for many, it won’t necessarily be the right choice for everyone. The agency urges affected taxpayers and their representatives to consider carefully which option is best under their particular circumstances.
