When filling out Form 6198, taxpayers must provide information regarding their involvement with certain activities, such as business investments or rentals, plus any property they have contributed to such activity.
This information includes total investment in operations during the tax year, total money withdrawn during the same period, and money contributed during that time frame. Other elements like income received or property transferred within a pass-through entity must also be reported on this form.
Taxpayers must also list charitable donations made towards their businesses as well as assets donated to any charity, which will help reduce their overall tax bill if deductible loss limitations apply to them.
Additionally, those who actively participate in any activity from which they make profits and incur losses will need to provide information about how much money each person invested into the activity; how much was loaned by other sources; whether or not all partners were personally liable for any borrowed funds; and if so, how much liability each partner held.
This is necessary because IRS’s at-risk limitations apply differently depending on whether a taxpayer actively participates in a given activity or not – hence why such details are required.
Finally, if there were any property contributions made towards a particular business venture (including capital grants), these should be indicated on the respective line items provided on the form.
In certain cases, expenses, including real property repairs, charitable donations, and insurance coverage, can be tax deductible if these have been beneficial for your small business. However, because of IRS at-risk limitations, there are limits to what can be deducted from your business expense.
