1040 Ez Forms For 2012

1040 ez forms for 2012 4. 1040 ez forms for 2012   Detailed Examples Table of Contents These examples use actual forms to help you prepare your income tax return. 1040 ez forms for 2012 However, the information shown on the filled-in forms is not from any actual person or scenario. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Example 1—Mortgage loan modification. 1040 ez forms for 2012    In 2007, Nancy Oak bought a main home for $435,000. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Nancy took out a $420,000 mortgage loan to buy the home and made a down payment of $15,000. 1040 ez forms for 2012 The loan was secured by the home. 1040 ez forms for 2012 The mortgage loan was a recourse debt, meaning that Nancy was personally liable for the debt. 1040 ez forms for 2012 In 2008, Nancy took out a second mortgage loan (also a recourse debt) in the amount of $30,000 that was used to substantially improve her kitchen. 1040 ez forms for 2012    In 2011, when the outstanding principal of the first and second mortgage loans was $440,000, Nancy refinanced the two recourse loans into one recourse loan in the amount of $475,000. 1040 ez forms for 2012 The FMV of Nancy's home at the time of the refinancing was $500,000. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Nancy used the additional $35,000 debt ($475,000 new mortgage loan minus $440,000 outstanding principal of Nancy's first and second mortgage loans immediately before the refinancing) to pay off personal credit cards and to pay college tuition for her son. 1040 ez forms for 2012 After the refinancing, Nancy has qualified principal residence indebtedness in the amount of $440,000 because the refinanced debt is qualified principal residence indebtedness only to the extent the amount of debt is not more than the old mortgage principal just before the refinancing. 1040 ez forms for 2012   In 2013, Nancy was unable to make her mortgage loan payments. 1040 ez forms for 2012 On August 31, 2013, when the outstanding balance of her refinanced mortgage loan was still $475,000 and the FMV of the property was $425,000, Nancy's bank agreed to a loan modification (a “workout”) that resulted in a $40,000 reduction in the principal balance of her loan. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Nancy was neither insolvent nor in bankruptcy at the time of the loan modification. 1040 ez forms for 2012   Nancy received a 2013 Form 1099-C from her bank in January 2014 showing canceled debt of $40,000 in box 2. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Identifiable event code "F" appears in box 6. 1040 ez forms for 2012 This box shows the reason the creditor has filed Form 1099-C. 1040 ez forms for 2012 To determine if she must include the canceled debt in her income, Nancy must determine whether she meets any of the exceptions or exclusions that apply to canceled debts. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Nancy determines that the only exception or exclusion that applies to her is the qualified principal residence indebtedness exclusion. 1040 ez forms for 2012   Next, Nancy determines the amount, if any, of the $40,000 of canceled debt that was qualified principal residence indebtedness. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Although Nancy has $440,000 of qualified principal residence indebtedness, part of her loan ($35,000) was not qualified principal residence indebtedness because it was used to pay off personal credit cards and college tuition for her son. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Applying the ordering rule, the qualified principal residence indebtedness exclusion applies only to the extent the amount canceled is more than the amount of the debt (immediately before the cancellation) that is not qualified principal residence indebtedness. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Thus, Nancy can exclude only $5,000 of the canceled debt as qualified principal residence indebtedness ($40,000 amount canceled minus $35,000 nonqualified debt). 1040 ez forms for 2012   Because Nancy does not meet any other exception or exclusion, she checks only the box on line 1e of Form 982 and enters $5,000 on line 2. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Nancy must also enter $5,000 on line 10b and reduce the basis of her main home by the $5,000 she excluded from income, bringing the adjusted basis in her home to $460,000 ($435,000 purchase price plus $30,000 substantial improvement minus $5,000). 1040 ez forms for 2012 Nancy must also include the $35,000 nonqualified debt portion in income on Form 1040, line 21. 1040 ez forms for 2012 You can see Nancy's Form 1099-C and a portion of her Form 1040 below. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Nancy's 2013 Form 1099-C, Cancellation of Debt This image is too large to be displayed in the current screen. 1040

This image is too large to be displayed in the current screen. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Please click the link to view the image. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Form 982 Reduction of Tax Attributes Due to Discharge of Indebtedness (and Section 1082 Basis Adjustment)              Example 2—Mortgage loan foreclosure. 1040 ez forms for 2012    In 2005, John and Mary Elm bought a main home for $335,000. 1040 ez forms for 2012 John and Mary took out a $320,000 mortgage loan to buy the home and made a down payment of $15,000. 1040 ez forms for 2012 The loan was secured by the home and is a recourse debt, meaning John and Mary are personally liable for the debt. 1040 ez forms for 2012   John and Mary became unable to make their mortgage loan payments and on March 1, 2013, when the outstanding balance of the mortgage loan was $315,000 and the FMV of the property was $290,000, the bank foreclosed on the property and simultaneously canceled the remaining mortgage debt. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Immediately before the foreclosure, John and Mary's only other assets and liabilities were a checking account with a balance of $6,000, retirement savings of $13,000, and credit card debt of $5,500. 1040 ez forms for 2012   John and Mary received a 2013 Form 1099-C showing canceled debt of $25,000 in box 2 ($315,000 outstanding balance minus $290,000 FMV) and an FMV of $290,000 in box 7. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Identifiable event code "D" appears in box 6. 1040 ez forms for 2012 This box shows the reason the creditor has filed Form 1099-C. 1040 ez forms for 2012 In order to determine if John and Mary must include the canceled debt in income, they must first determine whether they meet any of the exceptions or exclusions that apply to canceled debts. 1040 ez forms for 2012 In this example, John and Mary meet both the insolvency and qualified principal residence indebtedness exclusions. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Their sample Form 1099-C is shown on this page. 1040 ez forms for 2012   John and Mary complete the insolvency worksheet and determine that they were insolvent immediately before the cancellation because at that time their liabilities exceeded the FMV of their assets by $11,500 ($320,500 total liabilities minus $309,000 FMV of total assets). 1040 ez forms for 2012 However, because the entire debt canceled is qualified principal residence indebtedness, the insolvency exclusion only applies if John and Mary elect to apply the insolvency exclusion instead of the qualified principal residence exclusion. 1040 ez forms for 2012   John and Mary do not elect to apply the insolvency exclusion instead of the qualified principal residence exclusion because under the insolvency exclusion their exclusion would be limited to the amount by which they were insolvent ($11,500). 1040 ez forms for 2012 Instead, John and Mary check box 1e of Form 982 to exclude the canceled debt under the qualified principal residence exclusion. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Under the qualified principal residence exclusion, the amount that John and Mary can exclude is not limited because their qualified principal residence indebtedness is not more than $2 million and no portion of the loan was nonqualified debt. 1040 ez forms for 2012 As a result, John and Mary enter the full $25,000 of canceled debt on line 2 of Form 982. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Because John and Mary no longer own the home due to the foreclosure, John and Mary have no remaining basis in the home at the time of the debt cancellation. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Thus, John and Mary leave line 10b of Form 982 blank. 1040 ez forms for 2012   John and Mary must also determine whether they have a gain or loss from the foreclosure. 1040 ez forms for 2012 John and Mary complete Table 1-1 (shown below) and find that they have a $45,000 loss from the foreclosure. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Because this loss relates to their home, it is a nondeductible loss. 1040 ez forms for 2012   John and Mary's Form 1099-C, Insolvency Worksheet, and Form 982 follow. 1040 ez forms for 2012 John and Mary's 2013 Form 1099-C, Cancellation of Debt This image is too large to be displayed in the current screen. 1040 ez forms

Mary Elm) Part 1. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Complete Part 1 only if you were personally liable for the debt (even if none of the debt was canceled). 1040 ez forms for 2012 Otherwise, go to Part 2. 1040

too large to be displayed in the current screen. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Please click the link to view the image. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Form 982, Reduction of Tax Attributes Due to Discharge of Indebtedness (and Section 1082 Basis Adjustment)          Example 3—Mortgage loan foreclosure with debt exceeding $2 million limit. 1040 ez forms for 2012    In 2011, Kathy and Frank Willow got married and entered into a contract with Hive Construction Corporation to build a house for $3,000,000 to be used as their main home. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Kathy and Frank made a $400,000 down payment and took out a $2,600,000 mortgage to finance the remaining cost of the house. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Kathy and Frank are personally liable for the mortgage loan, which is secured by the home. 1040 ez forms for 2012   In November 2013, when the outstanding principal balance on the mortgage loan was $2,500,000, the FMV of the property fell to $1,750,000 and Kathy and Frank abandoned the property by permanently moving out. 1040 ez forms for 2012 The lender foreclosed on the property and, on December 5, 2013, sold the property to another buyer for $1,750,000. 1040 ez forms for 2012 On December 26, 2013, the lender canceled the remaining debt. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Kathy and Frank have no tax attributes other than basis of personal-use property. 1040 ez forms for 2012   The lender issued a 2013 Form 1099-C to Kathy and Frank showing canceled debt of $750,000 in box 2 (the remaining balance on the $2,500,000 mortgage debt after application of the foreclosure sale proceeds) and $1,750,000 in box 7 (FMV of the property). 1040 ez forms for 2012 Identifiable event code "D" appears in box 6. 1040 ez forms for 2012 This box shows the reason the creditor has filed Form 1099-C. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Although Kathy and Frank abandoned the property, the lender did not need to also file a Form 1099-A because the lender canceled the debt in connection with the foreclosure in the same calendar year. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Kathy and Frank are filing a joint return for 2013. 1040 ez forms for 2012   Because the foreclosure occurred prior to the debt cancellation, Kathy and Frank first calculate their gain or loss from the foreclosure using Table 1-1. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Because Kathy and Frank remained personally liable for the $750,000 debt remaining after the foreclosure ($2,500,000 outstanding debt immediately before the foreclosure minus $1,750,000 satisfied through the sale of the home), Kathy and Frank enter $1,750,000 on line 1 of Table 1-1 ($2,500,000 outstanding debt immediately before the foreclosure minus the $750,000 for which they remained liable). 1040 ez forms for 2012 Completing Table 1-1, Kathy and Frank find that they have no ordinary income from the cancellation of debt upon foreclosure and that they have a $1,250,000 loss. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Because this loss relates to their home, it is a nondeductible loss. 1040 ez forms for 2012   Because the lender later canceled the remaining amount of the debt, Kathy and Frank must also determine whether that canceled debt is taxable. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Immediately before the cancellation, Kathy and Frank had $15,000 in a savings account, household furnishings with an FMV of $17,000, a car with an FMV of $10,000, and $18,000 in credit card debt. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Kathy and Frank also had the $750,000 remaining balance on the mortgage loan at that time. 1040 ez forms for 2012 The household furnishings originally cost $30,000. 1040 ez forms for 2012 The car had been fully paid off (so there was no related outstanding debt) and was originally purchased for $16,000. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Kathy and Frank had no adjustments to the cost basis of the car. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Kathy and Frank had no other assets or liabilities at the time of the cancellation. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Kathy and Frank complete the insolvency worksheet to calculate that they were insolvent to the extent of $726,000 immediately before the cancellation ($768,000 of total liabilities minus $42,000 FMV of total assets). 1040 ez forms for 2012   At the beginning of 2014, Kathy and Frank had $9,000 in their savings account and $15,000 in credit card debt. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Kathy and Frank also owned the same car at that time (still with an FMV of $10,000 and basis of $16,000) and the same household furnishings (still with an FMV of $17,000 and a basis of $30,000). 1040 ez forms for 2012 Kathy and Frank had no other assets or liabilities at that time. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Kathy and Frank no longer own the home because the lender foreclosed on it in 2013. 1040 ez forms for 2012   Because the canceled debt is qualified principal residence indebtedness, the insolvency exclusion does not apply unless Kathy and Frank elect to apply the insolvency exclusion instead of the qualified principal residence indebtedness exclusion. 1040 ez forms for 2012 The maximum amount that Kathy and Frank can treat as qualified principal residence indebtedness is $2,000,000. 1040 ez forms for 2012 The remaining $500,000 ($2,500,000 outstanding mortgage loan minus $2,000,000 limit on qualified principal residence indebtedness) is not qualified principal residence indebtedness. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Because only a part of the loan is qualified principal residence indebtedness, Kathy and Frank must apply the ordering rule to the canceled debt. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Under the ordering rule, the qualified principal residence indebtedness exclusion applies only to the extent that the amount canceled ($750,000) exceeds the amount of the loan (immediately before the cancellation) that is not qualified principal residence indebtedness ($500,000). 1040 ez forms for 2012 This means that Kathy and Frank can only exclude $250,000 ($750,000 amount canceled minus $500,000 nonqualified debt) under the qualified principal residence indebtedness exclusion. 1040 ez forms for 2012   Kathy and Frank do not elect to have the insolvency exclusion apply instead of the qualified principal residence exclusion. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Nonetheless, they can still apply the insolvency exclusion to the $500,000 nonqualified debt because it is not qualified principal residence indebtedness. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Kathy and Frank can exclude the remaining $500,000 canceled debt under the insolvency exclusion because they were insolvent immediately before the cancellation to the extent of $726,000. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Thus, Kathy and Frank check the boxes on lines 1b and 1e of Form 982 and enter $750,000 on line 2 ($250,000 excluded under the qualified principal residence indebtedness exclusion plus $500,000 excluded under the insolvency exclusion). 1040 ez forms for 2012   Next, Kathy and Frank reduce their tax attributes using Part II of Form 982. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Because Kathy and Frank no longer own the home due to the foreclosure, Kathy and Frank have no remaining basis in the home at the time of the debt cancellation. 1040 ez forms for 2012 Thus, Kathy and Frank leave line 10b of Form 982 blank. 1040 ez
