Jones Example

Summary: This continues the example for Mr. Jones. This page contains the Line 35 (Form 8582-CR) computation, and Part V (Form 8582-CR),

The lines items completed under Line 35 computation:
 "Line 35. Figure the tax attributable to the remaining special allowance as follows:" "A. Taxable income" field contains 305,000 "B. Tax on line A. For Form 1040 or 1040–SR use the Tax Table, Tax Computation Worksheet, or other appropriate method you used to figure your tax. For Form 1041, use the Tax Rate Schedules, the Qualified Dividends Tax Worksheet, or Schedule D, whichever applies" field contains 78,105 "C. Enter \$25,000 (\$12,500 if married filing a separate return and you and your spouse lived apart at all times during the year)" field contains 25,000 "D. Enter amount, if any, from line 10 of Form 8582" field contains 0 "E. Enter amount, if any, from line 14 of Form 8582" field contains 0 "F. Subtract line D and E from line C" field contains 25,000 "G. Subtract line F from line A" field contains 280,000 "H. Tax on line G. For Form 1040 or 1040–SR use the Tax Table, Tax Computation Worksheet, or other appropriate method you used to figure your tax. For Form 1041, use the Tax Rate Schedules, the Qualified Dividends Tax Worksheet, or Schedule D, whichever applies" field contains 69,855 "I. Subtract line H from line B" field contains 8,250 "J. Add lines 16 and 30 of Form 8582-CR and enter the total" field contains 0 "K. Tax attributable to the remaining special allowance. Subtract line J from line I. Enter the result on line 35 of Form 8582-CR" field contains 8,250

Note. Then using taxable income in the above computation, it isn’t necessary to refigure items that are based on a percentage of adjusted gross income.

Step 5. Mr. Jones completes Form 8582-CR, Part V.

The line item completed for Form 8582-CR is:
Under "Part V: Passive Activity Credit Allowed":
 "37. Passive Activity Credit Allowed. Add lines 6, 16, 30, and 36. See page 14 to find out how to report the allowed credit on your tax return and how to allocate allowed and unallowed credits if you have more than one credit or credits from more than one activity. If you have any credits from a publicly traded partnership, see Publicly Traded Partnerships (PTPs)" field contains 8,250

Step 6. After completing Form 8582-CR, Mr. Jones determines his allowed and unallowed credit. Because he has only one type of credit from a single passive activity, his allowed low-income housing credit for 2019 is the amount on line 37, or \$8,250. His unallowed credit of \$3,250 is determined by subtracting the allowed credit on line 37 from the total credit on line 5 (\$12,000 − \$8,250).

Step 7. Mr. Jones enters the allowed passive activity credit of \$8,250 on Form 3800, line 3, and completes the rest of that form according to the Instructions for Form 3800. The unallowed credit of \$3,750 is carried forward and used to figure the passive activity credit allowed for 2020.
