Ask An Accountant- 8/12

Although tax season is over, tax questions arise year round. Momondealz‘s husband is an experienced accountant and will be answering questions sent to me at cjwtaxpro@gmail.com with the subject line “Ask an Accountant”.

Question: My son is heading to college this year and I was wondering what exactly I can claim on my taxes next year as deductions (i.e. textbooks and other school supplies?

Answer:The following items are eligible for education credits/deduction:

  • Tuition Fees (student activity fees)
  • Course materials (including books, supplies & equipment)
  • Computer (if required as a condition of enrollment)
  • Sports equipment & expenses if they are part of a degree program

These amounts are reduced by scholarships, fellowships, grants, employer-provided assistance, or any other benefit. Depending on the situation (i.e. what year of school the expenses are for combined with filing status and the Adjusted Gross Income of the taxpayer will determine if the items will be treated as a deduction or a credit, and to what extent the credit applies. At AGI above $60k single and $100K married filing jointly, the credit is entirely “phased out”. *Please keep in mind this post is for informational purposes only and answers given are very general. Many things depend on individual circumstances. Please contact your personal accountant or financial advisor for your particular situation.

Ask An Accountant- Claiming Donations Purchased With Coupons

Each week Mom On Dealz brings us a answer to a accounting question. This week she answers how to claim donations made with items that were purchased using coupons!
Although tax season is over, tax questions arise year round. My husband is an experienced accountant and will be answering questions sent to me at cjwtaxpro@gmail.com with the subject line “Ask an accountant”.
Question:
I donate from my stockpile quite frequently. When claiming these deductions, do I deduct what I paid out of pocket or what the items would normally cost without coupons/sales?
Answer:
There are 2 schools of thinking for this question. One side says you do not get to deduct something you have not paid for (assuming the item is free after coupons). The other side is that you still get to deduct fair market value. Generally speaking, I agree you deduct fair market value. For example, on average, diapers are priced around $10. If you buy a pack of diapers but there is a sale, you have coupons, and you have store rewards (such as register rewards, etc) so your final price is less than $10, you can still deduct $10 since the value of the diapers did not change, despite how much you paid out of pocket.
*Please keep in mind this post is for informational purposes only and answers given are very general. Many things depend on individual circumstances. Please contact your personal accountant or financial advisor for your particular situation.

Ask An Accountant- 7/22


Each week Mom On Dealz brings us a great post, answering accounting questions!
Although tax season is over, tax questions arise year round. My husband is an experienced accountant and will be answering questions sent to me at cjwtaxpro@gmail.com with the subject line “Ask an accountant”.
Question:
In 2010 I won an all expense paid trip as a prize for winning a contest. The company immediately asked for my social security number for the purposes of taxes. I expected I would be responsible for taxes on the value of the trip (I think it was $1,800.00.) In February of this year I contacted the company to see if they were sending me a 1099-Misc so I could file my taxes. They said they were going to send the form by the end of February, but I never received the forms. I needed my tax return funds, so I went ahead and filed my taxes without their information. If they claimed my trip on their taxes for 2010, is it likely that the IRS will see that I didn’t claim the trip and come after me tacking on interest?
