Understood - and I have 90% of those tax forms filled out - I am looking for guidance as to which forms to fill out and where (what line item) to claim the loss, that will cover this.
So specific guidance for Schedule C, form 4562, section 179 deductions if requited.
As stated before the instuctions are not clear, I do not know where to place the loss so that it will 'count properly' - I read 179 to mean that it could only be counted against business 'profits' claimed. Since I am not claiming profit...I am confused.
Sorry for the delay - sick kids this weekend. I will clear this up today and approve...
To verify - our business was an LLC - form 4797 is still appropriate? I read the instructions and it is not apparent where to fill out the 'sale' loss of out initial purhase price of 300K.
This form links directly back to the 1040 or to a line on the Schedule C for 2007?
Just want to ensure I get the right data flow and do not leave anything out?
