1 1 Unit03. Gross Income: Inclusions This week s objective is to increase our understanding of the concept of gross income as it is used in tax planning. In particular, the chapter focuses on What: What is income? Who: Who must include the item of income in gross income? When: In which tax period is the income recognized?
2 Outline 2 1. Economic and accounting concepts of income 2. Tax concept of income 3. To whom is tax taxable 4. When is income taxable 5. Items of gross income 6. Other items of gross income 7. Tax planning considerations 8. Compliance and procedural considerations
4 1. Economic and Accounting 4 Concepts of Income Economic concept: Income has two components: Wealth that flows to individuals Changes in value in individuals wealth, including Unrealized gains Gifts & inheritances considered income Study Example 3-1 Accounting concept: Income is measured by a transaction approach. Income realized as result of completed transactions Study Example 3-2
5 2. Tax Concept of Income Overview 5 The income tax law essentially has adopted the accounting concept of income rather than the economic concept because of Administrative convenience The economic concept is too subjective in that individuals will have to report the value of unrealized gains (i.e., the appreciation on a piece of land). Often these valuations are very subjective. Example: If a piece of land owned by the taxpayer appreciates during the year, it is difficult to assess exactly by how much it has appreciated. Just look at the property tax valuation problems. The wherewithal-to-pay concept Taxing unrealized appreciations can cause cash flow problems for taxpayers. Example: Even if we were able to ascertain that the appreciation is $30,000, at 20% tax rate the taxpayer has to come up with $6,000 cash to pay tax. That may be difficult for some taxpayers because they have not realized the $30,000 gain.
6 2. Tax Concept of Income Gross Income Defined - Code Definition 6 Code Sec. 61 includes in gross income "all income from whatever source derived." Specific examples are Compensation for services, Business income, Gains from sale or exchange of property, Interest, Rents, Royalties, Dividends, Alimony, Annuities, Income from certain life insurance contracts, Pensions, Income from the discharge of indebtedness, Distributive share of partnership or S-corporation income, Income in respect of a decedent, and Income from an estate or trust (See PAK Page 3-4 for the 15 item list)
7 7 2. Tax Concept of Income Gross Income Defined - Form of Receipt and Indirect Economic Benefit Form of receipt Gross income is not limited to cash a, income may be realized in any form, whether in money, property, and services Study Examples 3-3, 3-4, 3-5, 3-5, and 3-7. Indirect economic benefit Taxpayers may exclude indirect benefits from gross income. Examples of these indirect benefits are work uniform, employee discounts.
8 3. To whom Is Income Taxable? Overview 8 1) Assignment of income 2) Allocating income between married people 3) Income of minor children
9 3. To whom Is Income Taxable? 1) Assignment of Income 9 Income from personal services is taxed to the taxpayer who rendered the services, and income from property is taxed to the owner of the property. Supreme Court in Lucas v. Earl (1930) - Ruled that individual taxed the earnings from his personal services Helveringv. Horst (1940) - Ruled that assignment of income doctrine applies to property Today with married couple mostly filing joint returns this issue does not arise often. It is an issue today when other individuals such as parents and children are involved. when married couples filing separate returns.
10 3. To whom Is Income Taxable? 2) Allocating Income between Married People 10 If income needs to be assigned between married couples (for filing separate return purposes), the income allocation between husband and wife is dependent on state law. Common law property system Used in 42 states, including Utah Income taxed to person who earns it or who owns the income-producing property Joint income comes from jointly owned property Community property states Used in nine states (Arizona, California, Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Washington, and Wisconsin). All income deemed to be earned equally by spouses except income from separate property Separate property Property owned by each spouse prior to marriage May be community income or separate income, depending on state of residence Study Example 3-8
11 3. To whom Is Income Taxable? 3) Income of Minor Children 11 Children are taxed on their own earned income. Unearned income of minor under 24 may be taxed at parent s higher rate See Kiddie Tax in Unit02
13 4. When Is Income Taxable? Overview 13 The year in which income is taxed depends on the taxpayer s accounting method. Three methods are used: 1) Cash method 2) Accrual method 3) Hybrid method The taxpayer can chose which method to use but the IRS has the power to change the method if the IRS thinks the method used does not clearly reflect income.
14 4. When Is Income Taxable? 1) Cash Method 14 The cash method is used by most individuals, with income being reported in the year of actual or constructive receipt. Constructive receipt occurs when the taxpayer has access to the income, b but does not actually receive it (i.e., interest credited to a savings account). No constructive receipt if It is subject to substantial limitations Payor does not have funds necessary to make payment Amount is unavailable to taxpayer Exceptions to basic cash method Interest on Series E or EE Savings Bonds Special rules apply to farmers and ranchers Small taxpayer exception for inventories Study Examples 3-11, 3-12, and 3-13.
15 4. Is Income Taxable? 2) Accrual Method 15 Taxpayers generally report income in the year the income is earned (i.e. when "all events" have occurred to fix the right to income, and the amount of income can be determined with reasonable accuracy). Example: property sold with title transferred on 12/31/2010. Money is not received until 1/3/2011. The sales proceeds are taxable for the year Prepaid income Generally taxable when received Exceptions in Rev. Proc : May defer payments for future services to the year following the year in which the payment is received. Study Example 3-15
16 4. When Is Income Taxable? 3) Hybrid Method 16 This method is most often used in small business that maintain inventories and are required to use accrual method of accounting for purchases and sales of goods. Accrual method for purchases and sales Cash method in computing all other income and expenses Cash method is usually preferred over accrual method due to simplicity and flexibility. See STOP & THINK on Page 3-12 for a discussion.
17 5. Items of Gross Income Overview 17 1) Compensation 2) Business income 3) Gains from dealing in property 4) Interest 5) Rents and royalties 6) Dividends 7) Alimony and separate maintenance payments 8) Annuities and pensions 9) Income from life Insurance and endowment contracts 10) Income from discharge of indebtness 11) Income passed through to taxpayer
18 5. Items of Gross Income 1) Compensation, 2) Business Income, 3) Property Dealings 18 Compensation - Payment for personal services. Examples: salaries, wages, fees, commissions, tips, bonuses. Business income Gross profit (total revenue total cost) Gains from dealings in property Gains realized from property transactions. There are over 30 nonrecognition rules to allow taxpayers to postpone the recognition of gains and losses from certain types of property transactions, such as gains from the sale of a personal residence.
19 5. Items of Gross Income 4) Interest 19 Interest Compensation for the use of money. Interest is generally included in gross income. An exclusion for interest on municipal bonds is available as long as the bonds are not (1) issued for certain private activities, (2) issued in excess of the statutory limit, (3) guaranteed by the federal government, or (4) issued for the purpose of acquiring higher interest investments (arbitrage). An exclusion is also available for interest from Series EE U.S. saving bonds if the proceeds are used to pay certain college expenses for the taxpayers or dependents. The exclusion is phased-out over certain AGI levels. Study Example 3-16 and Example 3-17
20 5. Items of Gross Income 5) Rents and Royalties 20 Rents and royalties Gross income includes rents and royalties. Security deposits are not income until forfeited. Losses from these activities may be subject to the passive loss rules (See Chapter I8). Leasehold improvements in lieu of rent are included in gross income at their FMV upon completion. Leasehold improvements not in lieu of rent are not gross income. Amounts received by the lessor to cancel or modify a lease are included in gross income Study Examples 3-18 and 3-19
21 5. Items of Gross Income 6) Dividends (1 of 2) 21 Dividends are included in shareholder gross income Results in double taxation if it s a C Corporation Flow-through firms can be used to avoid double taxation To reduce the effect of double taxation, individuals are taxed at 15% on dividends (for taxpayers whose marginal tax rate is >15%) 0% if taxpayer is in 10% or 15% tax bracket Must hold stock for at least 60 days Study Examples 3-20 and 3-21 Distributions are taxable only to extent they are out of corporate earnings and profits Study Example 3-22
22 5. Items of Gross Income 6) Dividends (2 of 2) 22 Stock dividends distribution of company stock as dividends Not taxable because they are not realized income, unless cash is offered as an alternative to stock. Study Example 3-23 Capital gain dividends distributed by Mutual Fund companies Taxed at long-term capital gain rates Constructive dividends shareholder-employee compensation payments, etc. Taxed as regular dividends Study Example 3-24
23 5. Items of Gross Income 7) Alimony and Separate Maintenance Payments 23 Any payment pursuant to a divorce must be classified as one three categories for tax purpose: Alimony taxable for the person who receives it. deductible by the person who pays it. Issue of recapture prevent the payer from deducting too much alimony. Study Examples 3-27 and 3-28 Child support not taxable nor deductable. Property settlement not taxable Study Examples 3-25, 3-26
25 5. Items of Gross Income 7) Annuities and Pensions (1 of 2) 25 Annuities are partially included in gross income based on a calculation involving the excess of the expected return over the taxpayer's cost. How to compute the non-taxable portion (exclusion)? Expected return multiple: actual year of annuity or IRS multiple (Table 3-1) if it s an annularity for life. Expected return = annual payment x expected return multiple Exclusion ratio = cost of annuity / expected return Current year s exclusion = exclusion ratio x annual payment Study Example 3-29 The exclusion is applied to each receipt in a particular tax year until the cost is fully recovered. If the taxpayer dies before the entire cost is recovered tax free, any unrecovered cost is deducted on the decedent's final income tax return.
26 5. Items of Gross Income 8) Annuities and Pensions (2 of 2) 26 A pension is essentially an annuity where the cost of the annuity is paid by the employer, partly or fully. Qualified pensions use a simplified method to determine the taxable portion of the payments. Exclusion = Employee contribution $ / # of anticipated payments (see Page 3-22 for statuary IRS table) Note this exclusion is a monthly number Study Example 3-30 Early withdrawal (advanced payments) Early withdrawal is considered part employer and part employee contribution. Early withdrawals before age 59 ½ are also subject to 10% penalty. Study Example 3-31
27 5. Items of Gross Income 9) Income from Life Insurance and Endowment Contracts 27 The face amount of life insurance received is not taxable. If the proceeds are left with the company and interest is earned then the earned interest is taxable. Proceeds collected by the insured prior to death (i.e. endowment-type policy) which exceed premiums paid are treated as income. More details will be discussed in later units.
28 5. Items of Gross Income 10) Income from Discharge of Indebtness 28 Generally, the forgiveness of debt is included in gross income. Exceptions to this general rule exist for bankruptcy and certain other insolvency situations and will be discussed in later units.
29 5. Items of Gross Income 11) Income Passed Through to Taxpayer 29 Income from flow-through entities taxed directly to owners Income from partnership Income from S corporation Income in respect of a decedent Income from an estate or trust Income from RIC or REIT
30 6. Other Items of Gross Income Overview 30 1) Prizes, awards, gambling winnings, and treasure 2) Illegal income 3) Unemployment compensation 4) Social security benefits 5) Insurance proceeds and court awards 6) Recovery of previously deducted amounts 7) Claim of rights
31 31 6.

32 32 Illegal, and Taxable
33 33 6. Other Items of Gross Income 4) Social Security Benefits Social security benefits up to 85% taxable Excluded from gross income before Between 1984 and 1993 up to 50% taxable From 1994 on up to 85% taxable Taxable amount depend on provisional income and filing status Provisional income (PI) = AGI (excluding SS) + tax-exempt interest foreign income +50% SS Married filing jointly: PI <=32000 no SS tax Single: PI <25,000 no SS tax Study Example 3-33 for details
34 6. Other Items of Gross Income 5) Insurance Proceeds and Court Awards 34 The potential inclusion of insurance proceeds and court awards in gross income is affected by the reason the amounts were received. Recoveries of lost profits whether as insurance proceeds or damages are includible in gross income. Amounts received because of personal injury or sickness are generally excluded from gross income. Punitive damages awarded on the basis of sickness or physical injury are taxable. Study Example 3-34
35 6. Other Items of Gross Income 6) Recovery of Previously Deducted Amounts 35 On occasion, a taxpayer may deduct an amount in one year but recover the amount next year. Examples: medical expenses deducted in Year 1 but reimbursed in Year 2. State income tax withholding deducted in Year 1 but partially refunded in Year 2. Recovery of previously deducted amounts are generally taxable Study Examples 3-35, 3-36, and 3-37 for details.
36 6. Other Items of Gross Income 7) Claim of Rights 36 A taxpayer may receive funds, which have disputed ownership. Under the claim of right doctrine, the taxpayer must report the disputed amount as income, unless the use of funds is restricted. Study Examples 3-38, 3-39 If the taxpayer is subsequently required to repay the disputed amount, a deduction is available in the year of repayment. An adjustment may be available if the taxpayer's marginal tax rate in the year of inclusion exceeds the taxpayer's marginal tax rate in the year of deduction.
37 7. Tax Planning Considerations Overview 37 1) Shifting income 2) Alimony 3) Prepaid income 4) Taxable, tax-exempt, or tax-deferred bonds 5) Reporting savings bond interest 6) Deferred compensation arrangements
38 7. Tax Planning Considerations 1) Shifting income, 2) Alimony, 3) Prepaid Income 38 Shifting income Shifting income from high-bracket taxpayers to low-bracket taxpayers can reduce the overall family tax burden. Watch out for gift-tax problems Additional administrative expenses should be considered into this type of planning Alimony Deductible by payor and includible by payee If the payee s marginal tax rate is lower than the payor s marginal tax rate, which is often the case, there is tax saving overall. Study Example 3-41 Prepaid income taxed when payment is received One would want to receive prepaid income if income can be shifted from a year with a high marginal tax rate to a lower marginal tax rate. Study Example 3-42
39 7. Tax Planning Considerations 4) Bonds, 5) Reporting Savings Bonds Interest 39 Taxable, tax-exempt, or tax-deferred bonds Which type is better will depend on the different yields and the tax-payer s marginal tax rate One needs to compare present value of after-tax returns Study Example 3-43 Reporting savings bond interest It may be a tax advantage to report interest from U.S. Savings bonds owned by minor children on an annual income tax return. If the amount of interest is less than the standard deduction, such annual reporting will result in no tax. This approach will avoid the bunching of income in the year of redemption.
40 7. Tax Planning Considerations 6) Deferred Compensation Arrangements 40 Deferred compensation can be used as a means of avoiding the constructive receipt of income. Study Example 3-44 for details.
41 8.
