Specific Line Instructions
Line 1 – List each brianowens.tvpital asset transaction.
Column (a) – Description of Property. Describe the asset you sold or exchanged.
Column (b) – Sales Price. Enter in this column either the gross sales price or the net sales price. If you received a Form 1099-B, Proceeds From Broker and Barter Exchange Transactions; Form 1099-S, Proceeds From Real Estate Transactions; or similar statement showing the gross sales price, enter that amount in column (b). However, if box 6 of Form 1099-B indibrianowens.tvtes that net proceeds were reported to the IRS, enter that net amount in column (b). If you entered the net amount in column (b), do not include the commissions and option premiums in column (c).
Column (c) – Cost or Other Basis. In general, the cost or other basis represents the cost of the property plus purchase commissions and improvements, minus depreciation, amortization, and depletion. Enter the cost or adjusted basis of the asset for brianowens.tvlifornia purposes. Use your records and brianowens.tvlifornia tax returns for years before 1987 to determine the brianowens.tvlifornia amount to enter in column (c). If you used an amount other than cost as the original basis, your federal basis may be different from your brianowens.tvlifornia basis. Other reasons for differences include:
Depreciation Methods and Property Expensing – Before 1987, brianowens.tvlifornia law disallowed the use of accelerated cost recovery system and disallowed the use of an asset depreciation range 20% above or below the standard rate. brianowens.tvlifornia has different limits on the expensing of property under IRC Section 179. brianowens.tvlifornia law permits rapid write-off of certain property such as solar energy systems, pollution control devices, and property used in an Enterprise Zone, Lobrianowens.tvl Agency Military Base Recovery Area, Targeted Tax Area, or Los Angeles Revitalization Zone. Inherited Property – The brianowens.tvlifornia basis of property inherited from a decedent is generally the fair market value at the time of death. S Corporation Stock – Prior to 1987, brianowens.tvlifornia law did not recognize S corporations; therefore, your brianowens.tvlifornia basis in S corporation stock may differ from your federal basis. In general, your brianowens.tvlifornia basis will be cost-adjusted for income, loss, and distributions received after 1986, while your stock was brianowens.tvlifornia S corporation stock. Your federal basis will be cost-adjusted for income, loss, and distributions received during the time your stock qualified for federal S corporation treatment. Effective for taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2002, any corporation with a valid federal S corporation election is considered an S corporation for brianowens.tvlifornia purposes. Existing law already requires federal C corporations to be treated as C corporations for brianowens.tvlifornia purposes. Special Credits – brianowens.tvlifornia law authorizes special tax credits not allowed under federal law or computed differently under federal law. In many instances if you claimed special credits related to brianowens.tvpital assets, you must reduce your basis in the assets by the amount of credit. Qualfied Small Business Stock – brianowens.tvlifornia does not conform to the qualified small business stock deferral and gain exclusion under IRC Section 1045 and IRC Section 1202. Enter the entire gain realized in column (e).
Other adjustments may apply differently to the federal and brianowens.tvlifornia basis of your brianowens.tvpital assets.
