Do I Have a Loss Here?

by Charlotte
(Ware, MA usa)

I sold a large collection of compact disks at a loss. Is that loss a deduction on my taxes. My accountant added what I got for selling them to my income.

Also. I split what I sold them for between my 2 daughters. Is that considered a loss for me?

Thanks
Charlotte

Forex Losses

Forex losses. Can they be treated as regular losses or do they get put in a different category ie. capital loss. A capital loss is only deductible against capital gain. In tax year I have lost money trading the Forex market .

Insolvency

I have a question about insolvency. Do I have to file a tax return if I am insolvent?

Thank you for your insolvency question. If you are required to file a tax return based on the amount of income you made, and you had canceled debt that you would like to exclude due to insolvency then you will need to file a tax return.

To show that you are excluding canceled debt from income under the insolvency exclusion, you would attach Form 982 to your federal income tax return and check the box on line 1b. On line 2, include the smaller of the amount of the debt canceled or the amount by which you were insolvent immediately before the cancellation.

Loss/House Fire

Jan of 2010 had a house fire. Estimate on house was around $121000, contents was around $72000... Insurance company paid us $5000 back in Jan of 2010 to get started. Since then, they have now denied our claim. They have not asked for any money back that they have paid out. Now, my attorney has to sue them for our loss. Question is, can I still file this loss on my 2010 taxes under casualty and loss?

Loss or Not

by Debra
(CA)

Started home business billed customer for $ 3000.00 for hours worked. customer paid $1000.00 and is unable to pay the balance. Do I write off the $2000.00 by creating a bad debt deposit in Quickbooks thus creating a $1000.00 loss or do I claim the $1000.00 as income.

Loss or Not?

by Covimom

I am having a major brain fart here.
Self employed billed customer 3000.00 for hours worked (labor only) customer paid 1000.00 and will not be able to pay the balance of 2000.00 : is this or is this not a 1000.00 loss? by writing off as a bad debt.

When I run it through quick books it shows I have a $1000.00 profit for the year..

I have had rental units for app 30 years, and have shown losses for the past 3 years on 3 of my units. I have been totally disabled for 5 yrs. and on ssd.

If I sell these 3 units, the depreciation left is far greater than the sales price, but what happens to my past years of losses, now that I have only a disability income?
