  • 2. Learning Objectives 1. Apply the concept of realization and explain when taxpayers recognize gross income 2. Understand the distinctions between the various sources of income, including income from services and property 3. Apply basic income exclusion provisions to compute gross income 5-2
  • 3. Realization and Recognition of Income  Gross Income:  Taxpayers report realized and recognized income on their tax returns for the year  Income that is excluded or deferred is not included in gross income.  Excluded income is never taxed  Deferred income is taxed when recognized in a subsequent year. 5-3
  • 4. What Is Included in Gross Income?  Definition of gross income for tax purposes  §61(a) – “gross income means all income from whatever source derived”  Reg. §1.61-(a) – “includes income realized in any form, whether in money, property, or services” 5-4
  • 5.  Taxpayers recognize gross income when (1) they receive an economic benefit (2) they realize the income, and (3) the tax law does not provide for exclusion or deferral What Is Included in Gross Income? 5-5
  • 6.  Economic Benefit  Borrowed funds represent a liability, not gross income  Realization Principle  Taxpayer engages in a transaction with another party  Transaction results in a measurable change in property rights  Recognition  Realized income is assumed to be recognized absent a deferral or exclusion provision What Is Included in Gross Income? 5-6
  • 7. Other Income Concepts  Form of Receipt – Does it Matter?  Return of capital principle  The cost of an asset is called tax basis  Return on capital means the tax basis is excluded when calculating realized income.  Return of capital does not represent an economic benefit  Gain from the sale or disposition of an asset is included in realized income 5-7
  • 8. Other Income Concepts  Recovery of amounts previously deducted  Individuals typically claim deductions in the year paid.  Deductions may sometimes be reimbursed or refunded in a subsequent year.  Tax benefit rule - Refunds of expenditures deducted in a prior year are included in gross income to the extent that the refund reduced taxes in year of the deduction. 5-8
  • 9. Other Income Concepts Last year Courtney reported $8,900 in itemized deductions including $3,500 of state income taxes paid last year (the standard deduction last year was $8,700). In March of this year, Courtney received a $420 refund of the $3,500 in state income taxes paid last year. Under the tax benefit rule, how much of the $420 refund, should Courtney include in her gross income this year? Ans: $200 - the deduction of $420 only reduced Courtney’s taxable income by $200 because the total itemized deductions ($8,900) cannot drop below the standard deduction ($8,700). 5-9
  • 10. When to Recognize Income?  Individual taxpayers file tax returns for a calendar-year period  Corporations often use a fiscal year end  The method of accounting generally determines the calendar year in which realized income is recognized and included in gross income 5-10
  • 11.  Accounting Methods  Corporation: accrual method of accounting  Individuals: Cash method  Constructive Receipt  Taxpayer must realize and recognize income when it is actually or constructively received  Deemed to occur when the income is credited to the taxpayers account  Claim of Right  Income recognized when there are no restrictions on use of income (e.g., no obligation to repay) When to Recognize Income? 5-11
  • 12.  In addition to determining when taxpayers realize and recognize income, it is important to consider who (which taxpayer) recognizes the income  This question arises when an income-shifting strategy is involved  Assignment of Income  Community Property Systems Who Recognizes the Income? 5-12
  • 13.  Assignment of Income  The assignment of income doctrine holds that the taxpayer who earns income from services must recognize the income  Income from property such as dividends and interest is taxable to the person who actually owns the income-producing property  To shift income from property to another person, a taxpayer must also transfer the ownership in the property to the other person Who Recognizes the Income? 5-13
  • 14.  Community Property Systems  Nine states implement community property systems  Half of the income earned from the services of one spouse is included in the gross income of the other spouse  Half of the income from property held as community property by the married couple is included in the gross income of each spouse.  Property that a spouse brings into a marriage is treated as that spouse’s separate property. How income from separate property is treated varies across states (either treated as earned solely by spouse that owns property or equally by each spouse). Who Recognizes the Income? 5-14
  • 15. Types of Income  Income from services (Earned Income)  Income from labor most common source of gross income  Generated by the efforts of tax payer  Income from property (Unearned Income)  Include gain or losses from sale of property, dividends, interests, rents, royalties, and annuities  Depends on type of income and type of transaction generating income 5-15
  • 16.  Annuities  An investment that pays a stream of equal payments over time  A portion of each annuity payment as a non-taxable return of capital and the remainder as gross income  Taxpayers use the annuity exclusion ratio to determine the return of capital (non-taxable) portion of each payment Annuity exclusion ratio = original investment / expected value of the annuity Types of Income 5-16
  • 17.  Annuities  For annuities with a fixed term, the expected value is the number of payments times the payment amount In January, Gram purchased an annuity for $99,000 . The annuity pays her $10,000 per year for the next 15 years. How much of each $10,000 payment should Gram include in her gross income? Ans: $3,400 because the exclusion ratio is $99,000/$150,000 or 66 percent.  For annuities over a life, taxpayers must use IRS tables to determine the expected value based upon the taxpayer’s life expectancy Types of Income 5-17
  • 18.  Property Dispositions  Taxpayers usually realize a gain or loss when disposing of an asset  Taxpayers are allowed to recover their investment in property (tax basis) before they realize any gain Types of Income 5-18
  • 19.  Other Sources of Income  Income other than wages or business and property  Income from Flow-through Entities  Individuals may invest in various business entities  The legal form of the business affects how the income generated by the business is taxed  If the entity is a flow-through entity such as a partnership or S corporation, the income and deductions of the entity “flow through” to the owners of the entity (partners or shareholders) Types of Income 5-19
  • 20.  Alimony: For tax purposes alimony is defined as:  a transfer of cash made under a written separation agreement or divorce decree,  the separation or divorce decree does not designate the payment as nonalimony,  in the case of legally separated (or divorced) taxpayers under a separation or divorce decree, the spouses do not live together when the payment is made, and  the payments cannot continue after the death of the recipient  Types of payment that do not qualify as alimony:  property divisions and  child support payments fixed by the divorce or separation agreement Types of Income 5-20

Types of Income 5-21
  • 22.  Social Security Benefits  Single taxpayers  (1) If modified AGI + 50% of Social Security benefits <= $25,000, Social Security benefits are not taxable.  (2) If $25,000 < modified AGI + 50% of Social Security benefits < = $34,000, taxable Social Security benefits are the lesser of (a) 50 percent of the Social Security benefits or (b) 50 percent of (modified AGI + 50% of Social Security benefits - $25,000).  (3) If modified AGI + 50% of Social Security benefits > $34,000, taxable Social Security benefits are the lesser of (a) 85 percent of Social Security benefits or (b) 85 percent of (modified AGI + 50% of Social Security benefits - $34,000), plus the lesser of (1) $4,500 or (2) 50 percent of Social Security benefits. Types of Income 5-22
  • 23.  Imputed Income  Certain employee discounts or low interest loans generate income via indirect benefits.  For low interest loans, the amount of imputed income is the difference between the amount of interest using the applicable federal interest rate and the amount of interest the taxpayer actually pays.  The borrower is deemed to pay imputed interest (interest expense to borrower, interest income to lender), and then the lender is deemed to have returned the imputed amount (the tax consequences depend on relationship between borrower and lender).  Imputed interest rules do not apply to loans of $10,000 or less. Types of Income 5-23
  • 24.  Discharge of Indebtedness  When a taxpayer’s debt is forgiven by a lender, the taxpayer must usually include the amount of debt relief in gross income  Exceptions exist for certain types of loans  To provide tax relief for insolvent taxpayers—tax- payers with liabilities, including tax liabilities, exceeding their assets—a discharge of indebtedness is not taxable  If the discharge of indebtedness makes the taxpayer solvent, the taxpayer recognizes taxable income to the extent of his solvency Types of Income 5-24
