Vt dept of taxes forms Amount to report as ordinary income. Vt dept of taxes forms Applicable percentage. Vt dept of taxes forms Amount to report as ordinary income. Vt dept of taxes forms Applicable percentage. Vt dept of taxes forms Introduction When you dispose of property used in your farm business, your taxable gain or loss is usually treated as ordinary income (which is taxed at the same rates as wages and interest income) or capital gain (which is generally taxed at lower rates) under the rules for section 1231 transactions. Vt dept of taxes forms When you dispose of depreciable property (section 1245 property or section 1250 property) at a gain, you may have to recognize all or part of the gain as ordinary income under the depreciation recapture rules. Vt dept of taxes forms Any gain remaining after applying the depreciation recapture rules is a section 1231 gain, which may be taxed as a capital gain. Vt dept of taxes forms Gains and losses from property used in farming are reported on Form 4797, Sales of Business Property. Vt dept of taxes forms Table 9-1 contains examples of items reported on Form 4797 and refers to the part of that form on which they first should be reported. Vt dept of taxes forms Topics - This chapter discusses: Section 1231 gains and losses Depreciation recapture Other gains Useful Items - You may want to see: Publication 544 Sales and Other Dispositions of Assets Form (and Instructions) 4797 Sales of Business Property See chapter 16 for information about getting publications and forms. Vt dept of taxes forms Section 1231 Gains and Losses Section 1231 gains and losses are the taxable gains and losses from section 1231 transactions (explained below). Vt dept of taxes forms Their treatment as ordinary or capital gains depends on whether you have a net gain or a net loss from all of your section 1231 transactions in the tax year. Vt dept of taxes forms Table 9-1. Vt dept of taxes forms Where to First Report Certain Items on Form 4797 Type of property Held 1 year  or less Held more than  1 year 1 Depreciable trade or business property:       a Sold or exchanged at a gain Part II Part III (1245, 1250)   b Sold or exchanged at a loss Part II Part I 2 Farmland held less than 10 years for which soil, water, or land clearing expenses were deducted:       a Sold at a gain Part II Part III (1252)   b Sold at a loss Part II Part I 3 All other farmland Part II Part I 4 Disposition of cost-sharing payment property described in section 126 Part II Part III (1255) 5 Cattle and horses used in a trade or business for draft, breeding, dairy, or sporting purposes: Held less  than 24 mos. Vt dept of taxes forms Held 24 mos. Vt dept of taxes forms  or more   a Sold at a gain Part II Part III (1245)   b Sold at a loss Part II Part I   c Raised cattle and horses sold at a gain Part II Part I 6 Livestock other than cattle and horses used in a trade or business for draft, breeding, dairy, or sporting purposes: Held less  than 12 mos. Vt dept of taxes forms Held 12 mos. Vt dept of taxes forms   or more   a Sold at a gain Part II Part III (1245)   b Sold at a loss Part II Part I   c Raised livestock sold at a gain Part II Part I If you have a gain from a section 1231 transaction, first determine whether any of the gain is ordinary income under the depreciation recapture rules (explained later). Vt dept of taxes forms Do not take that gain into account as section 1231 gain. Vt dept of taxes forms Section 1231 transactions. Vt dept of taxes forms   Gain or loss on the following transactions is subject to section 1231 treatment. Vt dept of taxes forms Sale or exchange of cattle and horses. Vt dept of taxes forms The cattle and horses must be held for draft, breeding, dairy, or sporting purposes and held for 24 months or longer. Vt dept of taxes forms Sale or exchange of other livestock. Vt dept of taxes forms This livestock must be held for draft, breeding, dairy, or sporting purposes and held for 12 months or longer. Vt dept of taxes forms Other livestock includes hogs, mules, sheep, goats, donkeys, and other fur-bearing animals. Vt dept of taxes forms Other livestock does not include poultry. Vt dept of taxes forms Sale or exchange of depreciable personal property. Vt dept of taxes forms This property must be used in your business and held longer than 1 year. Vt dept of taxes forms Generally, property held for the production of rents or royalties is considered to be used in a trade or business. Vt dept of taxes forms Examples of depreciable personal property include farm machinery and trucks. Vt dept of taxes forms It also includes amortizable section 197 intangibles. Vt dept of taxes forms Sale or exchange of real estate. Vt dept of taxes forms This property must be used in your business and held longer than 1 year. Vt dept of taxes forms Examples are your farm or ranch (including barns and sheds). Vt dept of taxes forms Sale or exchange of unharvested crops. Vt dept of taxes forms The crop and land must be sold, exchanged, or involuntarily converted at the same time and to the same person, and the land must have been held longer than 1 year. Vt dept of taxes forms You cannot keep any right or option to reacquire the land directly or indirectly (other than a right customarily incident to a mortgage or other security transaction). Vt dept of taxes forms Growing crops sold with a leasehold on the land, even if sold to the same person in a single transaction, are not included. Vt dept of taxes forms Distributive share of partnership gains and losses. Vt dept of taxes forms Your distributive share must be from the sale or exchange of property listed above and held longer than 1 year (or for the required period for certain livestock). Vt dept of taxes forms Cutting or disposal of timber. Vt dept of taxes forms Special rules apply if you owned the timber longer than 1 year and elect to treat timber cutting as a sale or exchange, or you enter into a cutting contract, as described in chapter 8 under Timber . Vt dept of taxes forms Condemnation. Vt dept of taxes forms The condemned property (defined in chapter 11) must have been held longer than 1 year. Vt dept of taxes forms It must be business property or a capital asset held in connection with a trade or business or a transaction entered into for profit, such as investment property. Vt dept of taxes forms It cannot be property held for personal use. Vt dept of taxes forms Casualty or theft. Vt dept of taxes forms The casualty or theft must have affected business property, property held for the production of rents or royalties, or investment property (such as notes and bonds). Vt dept of taxes forms You must have held the property longer than 1 year. Vt dept of taxes forms However, if your casualty or theft losses are more than your casualty or theft gains, neither the gains nor the losses are taken into account in the section 1231 computation. Vt dept of taxes forms Section 1231 does not apply to personal casualty gains and losses. Vt dept of taxes forms See chapter 11 for information on how to treat those gains and losses. Vt dept of taxes forms If the property is not held for the required holding period, the transaction is not subject to section 1231 treatment, and any gain or loss is ordinary income reported in Part II of Form 4797. Vt dept of taxes forms See Table 9-1. Vt dept of taxes forms Property for sale to customers. Vt dept of taxes forms   A sale, exchange, or involuntary conversion of property held mainly for sale to customers is not a section 1231 transaction. Vt dept of taxes forms If you will get back all, or nearly all, of your investment in the property by selling it rather than by using it up in your business, it is property held mainly for sale to customers. Vt dept of taxes forms Treatment as ordinary or capital. Vt dept of taxes forms   To determine the treatment of section 1231 gains and losses, combine all of your section 1231 gains and losses for the year. Vt dept of taxes forms If you have a net section 1231 loss, it is an ordinary loss. Vt dept of taxes forms If you have a net section 1231 gain, it is ordinary income up to your nonrecaptured section 1231 losses from previous years, explained next. Vt dept of taxes forms The rest, if any, is long-term capital gain. Vt dept of taxes forms Nonrecaptured section 1231 losses. Vt dept of taxes forms   Your nonrecaptured section 1231 losses are your net section 1231 losses for the previous 5 years that have not been applied against a net section 1231 gain by treating the gain as ordinary income. Vt dept of taxes forms These losses are applied against your net section 1231 gain beginning with the earliest loss in the 5-year period. Vt dept of taxes forms Example. Vt dept of taxes forms In 2013, Ben has a $2,000 net section 1231 gain. Vt dept of taxes forms To figure how much he has to report as ordinary income and long-term capital gain, he must first determine his section 1231 gains and losses from the previous 5-year period. Vt dept of taxes forms From 2008 through 2012 he had the following section 1231 gains and losses. Vt dept of taxes forms Year Amount 2008 -0- 2009 -0- 2010 ($2,500) 2011 -0- 2012 $1,800   Ben uses this information to figure how to report his net section 1231 gain for 2013 as shown below. Vt dept of taxes forms 1) Net section 1231 gain (2013) $2,000 2) Net section 1231 loss (2010) ($2,500)   3) Net section 1231 gain (2012) 1,800   4) Remaining net section 1231 loss from prior 5 years ($700)   5) Gain treated as  ordinary income $700 6) Gain treated as long-term  capital gain $1,300 His remaining net section 1231 loss from 2010 is completely recaptured in 2013. Vt dept of taxes forms Depreciation Recapture If you dispose of depreciable or amortizable property at a gain, you may have to treat all or part of the gain (even if it is otherwise nontaxable) as ordinary income. Vt dept of taxes forms To figure any gain that must be reported as ordinary income, you must keep permanent records of the facts necessary to figure the depreciation or amortization allowed or allowable on your property. Vt dept of taxes forms For more information, see chapter 3 of Publication 544. Vt dept of taxes forms Section 1245 Property A gain on the disposition of section 1245 property is treated as ordinary income to the extent of depreciation allowed or allowable. Vt dept of taxes forms Any recognized gain that is more than the part that is ordinary income is a section 1231 gain. Vt dept of taxes forms See Treatment as ordinary or capital under Section 1231 Gains and Losses , earlier. Vt dept of taxes forms Section 1245 property includes any property that is or has been subject to an allowance for depreciation or amortization and that is any of the following types of property. Vt dept of taxes forms Personal property (either tangible or intangible). Vt dept of taxes forms Other tangible property (except buildings and their structural components) used as any of the following. Vt dept of taxes forms See Buildings and structural components below. Vt dept of taxes forms An integral part of manufacturing, production, or extraction, or of furnishing certain services. Vt dept of taxes forms A research facility in any of the activities in (a). Vt dept of taxes forms A facility in any of the activities in (a) above, for the bulk storage of fungible commodities (discussed later). Vt dept of taxes forms That part of real property (not included in (2)) with an adjusted basis reduced by (but not limited to) the following. Vt dept of taxes forms Amortization of certified pollution control facilities. Vt dept of taxes forms The section 179 expense deduction. Vt dept of taxes forms Deduction for clean-fuel vehicles and certain refueling property. Vt dept of taxes forms Expenditures to remove architectural and transportation barriers to the handicapped and elderly. Vt dept of taxes forms Certain reforestation expenditures (as described under Reforestation Costs in chapter 7. Vt dept of taxes forms Single purpose agricultural (livestock) or horticultural structures. Vt dept of taxes forms Storage facilities (except buildings and their structural components) used in distributing petroleum or any primary product of petroleum. Vt dept of taxes forms Buildings and structural components. Vt dept of taxes forms   Section 1245 property does not include buildings and structural components. Vt dept of taxes forms The term building includes a house, barn, warehouse, or garage. Vt dept of taxes forms The term structural component includes walls, floors, windows, doors, central air conditioning systems, light fixtures, etc. Vt dept of taxes forms   Do not treat a structure that is essentially machinery or equipment as a building or structural component. Vt dept of taxes forms Also, do not treat a structure that houses property used as an integral part of an activity as a building or structural component if the structure's use is so closely related to the property's use that the structure can be expected to be replaced when the property it initially houses is replaced. Vt dept of taxes forms   The fact that the structure is specially designed to withstand the stress and other demands of the property and cannot be used economically for other purposes indicates it is closely related to the use of the property it houses. Vt dept of taxes forms Structures such as oil and gas storage tanks, grain storage bins, and silos are not treated as buildings, but as section 1245 property. Vt dept of taxes forms Facility for bulk storage of fungible commodities. Vt dept of taxes forms   This is a facility used mainly for the bulk storage of fungible commodities. Vt dept of taxes forms Bulk storage means storage of a commodity in a large mass before it is used. Vt dept of taxes forms For example, if a facility is used to store oranges that have been sorted and boxed, it is not used for bulk storage. Vt dept of taxes forms To be fungible, a commodity must be such that one part may be used in place of another. Vt dept of taxes forms Gain Treated as Ordinary Income The gain treated as ordinary income on the sale, exchange, or involuntary conversion of section 1245 property, including a sale and leaseback transaction, is the lesser of the following amounts. Vt dept of taxes forms The depreciation (which includes any section 179 deduction claimed) and amortization allowed or allowable on the property. Vt dept of taxes forms The gain realized on the disposition (the amount realized from the disposition minus the adjusted basis of the property). Vt dept of taxes forms For any other disposition of section 1245 property, ordinary income is the lesser of (1) above or the amount by which its fair market value (FMV) is more than its adjusted basis. Vt dept of taxes forms For details, see chapter 3 of Publication 544. Vt dept of taxes forms Use Part III of Form 4797 to figure the ordinary income part of the gain. Vt dept of taxes forms Depreciation claimed on other property or claimed by other taxpayers. Vt dept of taxes forms   Depreciation and amortization include the amounts you claimed on the section 1245 property as well as the following depreciation and amortization amounts. Vt dept of taxes forms Amounts you claimed on property you exchanged for, or converted to, your section 1245 property in a like-kind exchange or involuntary conversion. Vt dept of taxes forms For details on exchanges of property that are not taxable, see Like-Kind Exchanges in chapter 8. Vt dept of taxes forms Amounts a previous owner of the section 1245 property claimed if your basis is determined with reference to that person's adjusted basis (for example, the donor's depreciation deductions on property you received as a gift and part of the transfer is a sale or exchange). Vt dept of taxes forms Example. Vt dept of taxes forms Jeff Free paid $120,000 for a tractor in 2012. Vt dept of taxes forms On February 23, 2013, he traded it for a chopper and paid an additional $30,000. Vt dept of taxes forms To figure his depreciation deduction on the chopper for the current year, Jeff continues to use the basis of the tractor as he would have before the trade. Vt dept of taxes forms Jeff can also depreciate the additional $30,000 for the chopper. Vt dept of taxes forms Depreciation and amortization. Vt dept of taxes forms   Depreciation and amortization deductions that must be recaptured as ordinary income include (but are not limited to) the following items. Vt dept of taxes forms See Depreciation Recapture in chapter 3 of Publication 544 for more details. Vt dept of taxes forms Ordinary depreciation deductions. Vt dept of taxes forms Section 179 deduction (see chapter 7). Vt dept of taxes forms Any special depreciation allowance. Vt dept of taxes forms Amortization deductions for all the following costs. Vt dept of taxes forms Acquiring a lease. Vt dept of taxes forms Lessee improvements. Vt dept of taxes forms Pollution control facilities. Vt dept of taxes forms Reforestation expenses. Vt dept of taxes forms Section 197 intangibles. Vt dept of taxes forms Qualified disaster expenses. Vt dept of taxes forms Franchises, trademarks, and trade names acquired before August 11, 1993. Vt dept of taxes forms Example. Vt dept of taxes forms You file your returns on a calendar year basis. Vt dept of taxes forms In February 2011, you bought and placed in service for 100% use in your farming business a light-duty truck (5-year property) that cost $10,000. Vt dept of taxes forms You used the half-year convention and your MACRS deductions for the truck were $1,500 in 2011 and $2,550 in 2012. Vt dept of taxes forms You did not claim the section 179 expense deduction for the truck. Vt dept of taxes forms You sold it in May 2013 for $7,000. Vt dept of taxes forms The MACRS deduction in 2013, the year of sale, is $893 (½ of $1,785). Vt dept of taxes forms Figure the gain treated as ordinary income as follows. Vt dept of taxes forms 1) Amount realized $7,000 2) Cost (February 2011) $10,000   3) Depreciation allowed or allowable (MACRS deductions: $1,500 + $2,550 + $893) 4,943   4) Adjusted basis (subtract line 3 from line 2) $5,057 5) Gain realized (subtract line 4 from line 1) 1,943 6) Gain treated as ordinary income (lesser of line 3 or line 5) $1,943 Depreciation allowed or allowable. Vt dept of taxes forms   You generally use the greater of the depreciation allowed or allowable when figuring the part of gain to report as ordinary income. Vt dept of taxes forms If, in prior years, you have consistently taken proper deductions under one method, the amount allowed for your prior years will not be increased even though a greater amount would have been allowed under another proper method. Vt dept of taxes forms If you did not take any deduction at all for depreciation, your adjustments to basis for depreciation allowable are figured by using the straight line method. Vt dept of taxes forms This treatment applies only when figuring what part of the gain is treated as ordinary income under the rules for section 1245 depreciation recapture. Vt dept of taxes forms Disposition of plants and animals. Vt dept of taxes forms   If you elect not to use the uniform capitalization rules (see chapter 6), you must treat any plant you produce as section 1245 property. Vt dept of taxes forms If you have a gain on the property's disposition, you must recapture the pre-productive expenses you would have capitalized if you had not made the election by treating the gain, up to the amount of these expenses, as ordinary income. Vt dept of taxes forms For section 1231 transactions, show these expenses as depreciation on Form 4797, Part III, line 22. Vt dept of taxes forms For plant sales that are reported on Schedule F (1040), Profit or Loss From Farming, this recapture rule does not change the reporting of income because the gain is already ordinary income. Vt dept of taxes forms You can use the farm-price method or the unit-livestock-price method discussed in  chapter 2 to figure these expenses. Vt dept of taxes forms Example. Vt dept of taxes forms Janet Maple sold her apple orchard in 2013 for $80,000. Vt dept of taxes forms Her adjusted basis at the time of sale was $60,000. Vt dept of taxes forms She bought the orchard in 2006, but the trees did not produce a crop until 2009. Vt dept of taxes forms Her pre-productive expenses were $6,000. Vt dept of taxes forms She elected not to use the uniform capitalization rules. Vt dept of taxes forms Janet must treat $6,000 of the gain as ordinary income. Vt dept of taxes forms Section 1250 Property Section 1250 property includes all real property subject to an allowance for depreciation that is not and never has been section 1245 property. Vt dept of taxes forms It includes buildings and structural components that are not section 1245 property (discussed earlier). Vt dept of taxes forms It includes a leasehold of land or section 1250 property subject to an allowance for depreciation. Vt dept of taxes forms A fee simple interest in land is not section 1250 property because, like land, it is not depreciable. Vt dept of taxes forms Gain on the disposition of section 1250 property is treated as ordinary income to the extent of additional depreciation allowed or allowable. Vt dept of taxes forms To determine the additional depreciation on section 1250 property, see Depreciation Recapture in chapter 3 of Publication 544. Vt dept of taxes forms You will not have additional depreciation if any of the following apply to the property disposed of. Vt dept of taxes forms You figured depreciation for the property using the straight line method or any other method that does not result in depreciation that is more than the amount figured by the straight line method and you have held the property longer than 1 year. Vt dept of taxes forms You chose the alternate ACRS (straight line) method for the property, which was a type of 15-, 18-, or 19-year real property covered by the section 1250 rules. Vt dept of taxes forms The property was nonresidential real property placed in service after 1986 (or after July 31, 1986, if the choice to use MACRS was made) and you held it longer than 1 year. Vt dept of taxes forms These properties are depreciated using the straight line method. Vt dept of taxes forms Installment Sale If you report the sale of property under the installment method, any depreciation recapture under section 1245 or 1250 is taxable as ordinary income in the year of sale. Vt dept of taxes forms This applies even if no payments are received in that year. Vt dept of taxes forms If the gain is more than the depreciation recapture income, report the rest of the gain using the rules of the installment method. Vt dept of taxes forms For this purpose, include the recapture income in your installment sale basis to determine your gross profit on the installment sale. Vt dept of taxes forms If you dispose of more than one asset in a single transaction, you must separately figure the gain on each asset so that it may be properly reported. Vt dept of taxes forms To do this, allocate the selling price and the payments you receive in the year of sale to each asset. Vt dept of taxes forms Report any depreciation recapture income in the year of sale before using the installment method for any remaining gain. Vt dept of taxes forms For more information on installment sales, see chapter 10. Vt dept of taxes forms Other Dispositions Chapter 3 of Publication 544 discusses the tax treatment of the following transfers of depreciable property. Vt dept of taxes forms By gift. Vt dept of taxes forms At death. Vt dept of taxes forms In like-kind exchanges. Vt dept of taxes forms In involuntary conversions. Vt dept of taxes forms Publication 544 also explains how to handle a single transaction involving multiple properties. Vt dept of taxes forms Other Gains This section discusses gain on the disposition of farmland for which you were allowed either of the following. Vt dept of taxes forms Deductions for soil and water conservation expenditures (section 1252 property). Vt dept of taxes forms Exclusions from income for certain cost sharing payments (section 1255 property). Vt dept of taxes forms Section 1252 property. Vt dept of taxes forms   If you disposed of farmland you held more than 1 year and less than 10 years at a gain and you were allowed deductions for soil and water conservation expenses for the land, as discussed in chapter 5, you must treat part of the gain as ordinary income and treat the balance as section 1231 gain. Vt dept of taxes forms Exceptions. Vt dept of taxes forms   Do not treat gain on the following transactions as gain on section 1252 property. Vt dept of taxes forms Disposition of farmland by gift. Vt dept of taxes forms Transfer of farm property at death (except for income in respect of a decedent). Vt dept of taxes forms For more information, see Regulations section 1. Vt dept of taxes forms 1252-2. Vt dept of taxes forms Amount to report as ordinary income. Vt dept of taxes forms   You report as ordinary income the lesser of the following amounts. Vt dept of taxes forms Your gain (determined by subtracting the adjusted basis from the amount realized from a sale, exchange, or involuntary conversion, or the FMV for all other dispositions). Vt dept of taxes forms The total deductions allowed for soil and water conservation expenses multiplied by the applicable percentage, discussed next. Vt dept of taxes forms Applicable percentage.
