Enter a country code to take foreign tax credit (unless electing exemption). If the income passed through from a mutual fund or other RIC, mark the Foreign income / taxes from a mutual fund or other regulated investment company (RIC) field instead of reporting country-by-country. The Foreign country or possession code/name fields are then inactive.

If you mark this field and the 1116 screen contains only qualified passive income with creditable foreign taxes of no more than $300 ($600 if married filing joint), filing Form 1116 is not required and it does not calculate. Carryovers from or to the current tax year do not calculate. 

Note: UltraTax CS ignores this election when you check the Report all foreign tax on Schedule A field on the Cr screen. When you select both, neither a deduction nor a credit calculates.

If you enter an amount in this field, it reports on Schedule 3 (Form 1040), line 1, without review of exemption requirements. Carryovers from or to the current tax year do not calculate and will not proforma to next year. When Form 1116 does not calculate, the FTC Carryover Worksheet and Report also do not calculate.

Use this section to enter the sale of capital assets that are not sold on installment. If related to a basis, at-risk, or passive activity, enter the form/and unit # in the statement for the Schedule for detail field.

Use this statement to enter capital gains and losses. For complete instructions, click the link for the type of capital gain or loss you're entering:

Field Description
8949 Box Choose a code to indicate whether a sale was reported on a 1099-B and if basis was reported to the IRS. Once you choose a code, the sale will report either on Schedule D or on the 8949. For codes 1-3, you cannot choose a specific 8949 box; instead, UltraTax CS automatically determines whether it is short or long-term based on what you enter in the Date Acq'd and Date Sold columns and marks the appropriate box on Form 8949. You can also force short-term or long-term in the Force column. UltraTax CS defaults to 3, Box C treatment when this field is blank. To change the default behavior for all clients, choose Setup > 1040 Individual > Other Return Options button. Click the Return Presentation tab and make your selection in the Default for Screen B&D, Schedule for detail, Form 8949 transactions drop-down list.
1099B Errors Use this field to identify errors that were reported to the IRS on Form 1099B. You may need to make adjustments using the Adj to G/L column.
Type

Use this field to indicate the type of capital asset in the sale.

Gain or loss is included in Schedule D, the NOL Worksheet as business capital gain or loss, in the income used to limit section 179 expense, and gain or loss is reported on Form 8582.

Gain or loss is included in Form 8949, Form 4952, and in the NOL Worksheet as nonbusiness capital gain or loss. Gain or loss is also included in the 28% Rate Capital Gain Tax Worksheet.

Notes:
  • Adjustment code "C" will print in the Form 8949 Column (f) Codes from instructions. If there is no amount entered in the Adj to G/L field, a 0 (zero) will print in Column (g) Amount of Adjustment.
  • Items coded "C" will be taxed at 28% capital gains rates. Therefore, do not combine non-collectible sales with collectible sales when reporting multiple transactions on a single row.
  • The IRS does not allow collectibles to be reported directly on Schedule D, so code 4 should not be used in the 8949 Box field when code C = Collectible is selected in the Type field.

Use type M to report capital gain/loss determined under the net asset value method (NAV) with respect to shares in a floating-NAV money market fund.

Notes:
  • Type M items will always be reported on Form 8949 Part I (short-term) with Box C checked, even if you enter long-term dates.
  • Only the Form 8949 description and gain/loss column will be completed, all other columns will remain blank.
  • UltraTax CS will append "(NAV)" to the description.

Gain or loss is included in Form 8949 and in the NOL Worksheet as nonbusiness capital gain or loss.

Section 1244 losses transfer to Form 4797, Part II. Section 1244 gains are reported on Form 8949.

Notes:
  • Adjustment code "S" will print in the Form 8949 Column (f) Codes from instructions when the transaction is a loss. Section 1244 losses will be reported on Form 8949 with an amount equal to the ordinary gain reported on Form 4797.
  • Items coded "S" will be treated as 100% Section 1244 gains on Form 4797. Therefore, do not combine non-Section 1244 transactions with Section 1244 sales when reporting multiple transactions on a single row.

Section 1202 provides for an exclusion of 100 percent of the gain on the sale or exchange of qualified small business stock. The section 1202 exclusion applies only to qualified small business stock issued after September 21, 2010, and before January 1, 2014 which was held for more than five years. Enter the amount before exclusion. There is no taxable gain for this exclusion, so these transactions do not affect the 28% Rate Capital Gain Tax Worksheet, Form 4952, or the nonbusiness capital gain in the NOL worksheet.

Notes:
  • When a Sales Price and Cost/Basis has a "V" in the Type column, UltraTax CS will update the Adj to G/L with the exclusion amount.
  • Adjustment code "Q" will print in the Form 8949 Column (f) Codes from instructions.
  • Do not combine non-Section 1202 sales with other gains subject when reporting multiple transactions on a single row.

Section 1202 provides for an exclusion of 50 percent of the gain on the sale or exchange of qualified small business stock. The section 1202 exclusion applies only to qualified small business stock issued after August 10, 1993, and held for more than five years. Enter the amount before exclusion. UltraTax CS includes the amount after exclusion in the 28% Rate Capital Gain Tax Worksheet, on Form 4952, and as nonbusiness capital gain in the NOL Worksheet.

Note:
  • When a Sales Price and Cost/Basis has "X" in the Type Column, UltraTax CS will update the Adj to G/L with the exclusion amount.
  • Adjustment code "Q" will print in the Form 8949 Column (f) Codes from instructions.
  • Items coded "X" will be treated as Section 1202 gain subject to 50% exclusion with the taxable amount subject to the 28% capital gains rates and the AMT 7% preference. Therefore, do not combine non-Section 1202 sales with Section 1202 gains subject to 50% exclusion when reporting multiple transactions on a single row.

Section 1202 provides for an exclusion of 75 percent of the gain on the sale or exchange of qualified small business stock. The section 1202 exclusion applies only to qualified small business stock acquired after February 17, 2009, and on or before September 27, 2010, in a qualified business entity and held for more than five years. Enter the amount before exclusion. UltraTax CS includes the amount after exclusion in the 28% Rate Capital Gain Tax Worksheet, on Form 4952, and as nonbusiness capital gain in the NOL Worksheet.

Notes:
  • When a Sales Price and Cost/Basis has a "Y" in the Type column, UltraTax CS will update the Adj to G/L with the exclusion amount.
  • Adjustment code "Q" will print in the Form 8949 Column (f) Codes from instructions.
  • Items coded "Y" will be treated as Section 1202 gain subject to 75% exclusion with the taxable amount subject to the 28% capital gains rates and the AMT 7% preference. Therefore, do not combine non-Section 1202 sales with Section 1202 gains subject to 75% exclusion when reporting multiple transactions on a single row.

Section 1202 provides for an exclusion of 60 percent of the gain on the sale or exchange of qualified small business stock. The section 1202 exclusion applies only to qualified small business stock acquired after December 21, 2000, in a qualified business entity (within an empowerment zone) and held for more than five years. Enter the amount before exclusion. UltraTax CS includes the amount after exclusion in the 28% Rate Capital Gain Tax Worksheet, on Form 4952, and as nonbusiness capital gain in the NOL Worksheet.

Notes:
  • When a Sale Price and Cost/Basis has a "Y" in the Type column, UltraTax CS will update the Adj to G/L with the exclusion amount.
  • Adjustment code "Q" will print in the Form 8949 Column (f) Codes from instructions.
  • Items coded "Z" will be treated as Section 1202 gain subject to 60% exclusion with the taxable amount subject to the 28% capital gains rates and the AMT 7% preference. Therefore, do not combine non-Section 1202 sales with Section 1202 gains subject to 60% exclusion when reporting multiple transactions on a single row.
