7 Tax Returns and Beyond Reading, Understanding, and Using Various Tax Returns TAX RETURNS AND BEYOND READING, UNDERSTANDING, AND USING VARIOUS TAX RETURNS I. SCOPE OF ARTICLE Evaluation of the financial condition of parties in a family law case can become a very detailed undertaking. As family lawyers, we need a starting place to assist us in the discovery process request for production, interrogatories, depositions, etc. Overall, our best roadmap is the parties tax returns. Year in, year out, parties must report their income and deductions to the Internal Revenue Service, and state their income source and category of deductions, under penalties of perjury. This article will examine the types of tax returns most commonly encountered in preparation of your family law case, and discuss how to read and obtain information from those returns. II. TAX RETURNS COMMONLY ENCOUNTERED The most common tax return forms encountered by the family lawyer are as follows: (1) U.S. Individual Income Tax Return (Form 1040) (2) U.S. Partnership Income Tax Return (Form 1065) (3) U.S. Income Tax Return for an S Corporation (Form 1120S) (4) U.S. Corporation Income Tax Return (Form 1120) (5) U.S. Fiduciary Income Tax Return (Form 1041) III. U.S. INDIVIDUAL INCOME TAX RETURN (FORM 1040) [APPENDIX] Perhaps the one best discovery tool is the Form 1040 U.S. Individual Income Tax Return. The Form 1040 will help us assimilate data to discover the assets and liabilities of the parties, as well as provide income and expense information for determination of spousal and child support. Pages 1-2 of the Form 1040 are a summary of the various supporting schedules attached to the return. A. Page 1 [Appendix] 1. Address Information This is the address utilized by the IRS computers. 2.

Tax Computation See line item 40 for determination of itemized deductions versus standard deduction. If itemized deductions are taken, see Schedule A for detail. See line item 42 for determination of personal exemptions claimed. Examine calculations to determine if a cutback of the personal exemption amount has occurred because of excess adjusted gross income. Line item 43 denotes taxable income. Line item 44 states the tax-computed from the applicable table or schedule. 2. Credits Take special note of the types of credits for associated source of assets, and possible carryovers.

Such items may include credit card debt, personal bank loans, 401K Plan loans, insurance cash surrender value loans, etc. 4. Lines 16-18, Gifts to Charity Examine gifts of cash versus property, and carryover amounts. 5. Line 20, Casualty and Theft Losses Examine Form 4684 for detail of casualty and theft losses. 6. Line 21, Unreimbursed Employee Expenses Examine Form 2106 for detail. Look at prior year returns for history. 7. Line 23, Other Expenses Look for detail of expenses relating to other investments, safety deposit box, etc., which may lead to other assets. 8. Line 29, Total Itemized Deductions Examine calculation for cutback caused by excess adjusted gross income, and effect on asset allocations. D. Schedule B Interest and Ordinary Dividends [Appendix] 1. Interest This schedule lists interest income. Obtain information from this schedule including the name of the payor, and the type of investment. Entries should be supported by Form 1099-INT, Form 1099-OID, or Substitute Brokerage Firm Statements. Line item 3 states excludable interest from Series EE and I U.S. Savings Bonds issued after 1989 from Form Ordinary Dividends This schedule lists dividend income.

Schedule C Profit or Loss From Business [Appendix] 1. Sole Proprietorship Information This schedule is the reporting of income and deductions from the parties sole proprietorship. Business profit and loss statements should be compared to this schedule. Data from this schedule should not be confused with business income from a partnership or joint venture (reportable on Form 1065) or from a corporation (reportable on Form 1120, or 1120S). Note the business name, any d/b/a, and address. Also note employer ID number for review of supporting documents. 3

10 Tax Returns and Beyond Reading, Understanding, and Using Various Tax Returns 2. Line F, Accounting Method Determine cash versus accrual accounting. Most individual taxpayers will report their sole proprietorship income on the cash basis method of accounting, therefore, avoiding the reporting of receivables as income until collected. 3. Line G, Material Participation Note the answer to this line item, and determine if any suspended passive activity losses exist. 4. Part I, Income Examine gross receipts/sales, and request source documentation. Review costs of goods sold detailed from Part III. Review other income source on line Part II, Expenses Obtain the Accounts Receivable Ledger for analysis. For example, examine the bad debts account for charged off amounts still existing on the financial accounting books. Look for personal expense add backs in items such as car and trust expenses (line 9), depreciation expenses (line 13), employee benefit programs (line 14), insurance (line 15), repairs and maintenance (line 21), supplies (line 22), travel, meals and entertainment (line 24), and other expenses (line 27). Review the detail of line 13, depreciation and Section 179 expense deductions for asset listings and age. Examine several years of Section 179 expense deductions for assets previously written off, but still in place. Look for prepayments in line items such as insurance (line 15), office expense (line 18), supplies (line 22), and other expenses (line 27). Line 16, interest, cause inquiry into debts or liabilities. Line 17, legal and professional services should be examined for reason of payment, and possible payment of divorce litigation by the business. Examine pension and profit sharing plans in Line Part IV, Information on Your Vehicle See detail for business use of vehicle. F. Schedule D Capital Gains and Losses [Appendix] 1. Part I, Short-Term Capital Gains and Losses This portion of the schedule reports sales of capital assets held one year or less. See detail from Form Examine the description of the property. Look at the date acquired for characterization issues. Review the detail of the sales price, as well as the cost or other basis of the asset. These schedules will also lead us to review other tax returns and schedules for pass-through items such as gains or losses from partnerships, S-corporations, or estates and trusts. 2. Part II, Long-Term Capital Gains and Losses This portion of the schedule reports the sale of capital assets held more than one year. Analysis of the items detailed above in Part I should likewise be examined for long-term capital gains and losses categories. 3. Sale of Business Property Look to Form 4797 for detail of sales or exchanges of property used in a trade or business. 4. Installment Sales See detail from Form 6252 for sales reported on an installment basis, e.g. collection of long-term note. 5. Carryovers Examine line item 6 for short-term capital loss carryover, and line 14 for long-term capital loss carryover. Then examine line 16, and if a loss, determine the capital loss carryover to future years. G. Schedule E Supplemental Income and Loss [Appendix] 1. Part I, Income or Loss from Rental Real Estate and Royalties Examine line item 1 for the kind and location of each rental real estate property. Note any personal use of the property in line item 2. Examine the expense amounts and categories. Examine Form 8582 for passive activity loss limitations, and possible suspended passive activity losses. 2. Part II, Income or Loss from Partnerships and S- Corporations Obtain information from this portion of the schedule regarding the entity name, type of entity, whether a foreign partnership, employer ID number, and passive versus non-passive income and loss data. Supporting information is obtained from Schedule K- 1s, and Depreciation Form Part III, Income or Loss from Estates and Trusts Obtain name, employer ID number, and inquire into supporting documents such as Schedule K-1. H. Schedule F Profit or Loss From Farming [Appendix] Schedule F details the income and expenses of a farming operation, similar to the detail discussed earlier in Schedule C for a sole-proprietorship. In addition to the line item discussions for Schedule C 4

11 Tax Returns and Beyond Reading, Understanding, and Using Various Tax Returns [Appendix], special note should be made for farming operations, as follows: 1. Type of Asset Look to Part IV Principal Agricultural Activity Codes on the back of Schedule F for a detailed list of the farming activities most commonly encountered. Then examine Part I, Farm Income Cash Method. Note that accrual method taxpayers complete Part III, Farm Income Accrual Method. Look at types of sales e.g. livestock, produce, grains, etc. These line items will lead us to other questions, such as the type of products produced, and livestock groupings. Request support documents for agricultural program payments, and CCC loan payments. Consider the amount of deferred payments in each category. Take note of inventories, the cost method utilized, and any valuation differences between beginning and ending inventories. Examine elections made with respect to livestock capitalized versus inventoried. 2. Expense Items Depending upon the size of the farming operation, it is common to prepay and store supplies used yearin/year-out, e.g. chemicals (line 11), feed (line 16), fertilizers (line 17), seeds (line 26), and supplies (line 28). Also inquire as to storage and warehousing expenses (line 27). As with Schedules C and E previously discussed, take special note of depreciation and Section 179 expense deductions (line 14), and their asset components. Inquire into personal items for add-back purposes. I. Form 4562 Depreciation and Amortization [Appendix] The Form 4562 depreciation schedule is very useful, and is utilized for many Form 1040 schedules (i.e. Schedule C, E, and F) as well as business tax returns. 1. Section 179 Expense Part I of Form 4562 is the election to expense certain tangible property. For qualifying Section 179 property, the taxpayer may elect to expense the total cost of such property for the tax year, up to a maximum of $500,000 per year, instead of capitalizing the asset and depreciating it over its life. Analysis of these assets is extremely important since, once expensed, they no longer show on the depreciation schedule. 2. Depreciable Property Parts II and III should be examined for listings of depreciable properties by category. Important information includes basis, recovery period, and methods of depreciation. Supporting schedules should be requested, including asset listings, accumulated depreciation schedules, and retired asset detail. Adjustments will be required in financial statement and tax return analysis since the adjusted basis of assets is usually distorted compared to the true asset value. 3. Part V Listed Property This portion of Form 4562 requires detailed information with respect to depreciation of automobiles, vehicles, certain computers, and property used for entertainment or recreation. Information in this regard will include the type of property, date of acquisition, basis, and accumulated depreciation. Total mileage information in Section B can assist in vehicle valuation. IV. U.S. INCOME TAX RETURN FOR ESTATES AND TRUSTS (FORM 1041) [APPENDIX] Form 1041 is used to report and pay tax for estates, trusts, and bankruptcy estates. A. Accounting Period At the top of Form 1041 notice the accounting period utilized by the estate or trust. An estate may have a fiscal year; whereas, generally a trust must adopt a calendar year. An exception to this rule may be older trusts, which adopted a fiscal year when the law so allowed. B. Entity Information The top left-hand box to page 1 of Form 1041 will reveal the designation of the type of entity, i.e. estate, trust, bankruptcy estate. Block D on the top right-hand portion of page 1 will state the date the entity was created. Also note the name and address of the designated fiduciary. If an estate, take note of the age of the estate entity. Tax case law provides that under certain circumstances, the administration of the estate should have been closed, and the estate will be considered terminated. This point should be examined where there is a characterization difference. See the number of Schedule K-1s attached in Block B at the upper left-hand corner of page 1 to determine if all Schedule K-1s have been provided for all beneficiaries. C. Income/Deductions The income/deductions of an estate or trust are very akin to those previously discussed for business properties (Schedule C, Schedule F, Form 4797, etc.). In fact, many of these same schedules are attached as supplements to the Form

12 Tax Returns and Beyond Reading, Understanding, and Using Various Tax Returns D. Page 2 Other Information Examine the answers to the questions listed at the bottom of page 2 of Form These answers will lead us to other assets such as tax-exempt assets, deferred compensation arrangements, and foreign accounts. Make inquiry into long-term income payments, such as retirement distributions, installment sales, and deferred earnings. E. Schedule K-1, Beneficiaries Share Of Income, Deductions, Credits Schedule K-1 provides a breakdown allocation of income, deductions, and tax attributes of the estate or trust for each beneficiary. Although fiduciaries are very reluctant to produce a Schedule K-1 of any beneficiary other than your affected party, this production is necessary and important to determine if any beneficiary is treated differently than your subject beneficiary, and if so, why. Be aware that most assets receive a stepup in basis if reported in the decedent s estate. This point becomes important for depreciation purposes and the resulting tax basis of the asset. Allocation of taxable income items between ordinary income versus capital gain should be noted for characterization purposes. Flow through income, expenses, and depreciation should also be examined for possible claims for reimbursement with respect to the tax consequences. 6
