Question: OID, original issue discount, how to report on 2009 tax form from expired CD?
Bought a 3 year resources CD from a bank and it reached maturity in 2009 so I had to cash it out. It only made $26 in realized interest, although I had to declare a cumulative $200 in potential interest for the tax years 2007 through 2009 from the 1099 i received and I correctly filed each year. The question is where on the tax form do I enter the loss or the difference between the $26 and the cumulative unrealized tax of $200 reported in each of the three tax year forms? Or is this a loss that’s not recognized by IRS at all?
Answer: If you got a $1000 CD for a discount, that’s the source of the OID. As you paid income tax on the OID’s interest income, you added it back to the amount you paid so that when it reached maturity, you had declared all the interest.
If you bought the CD after it had been issued (eg, original discount price was $800, you paid $950), you were to adjust the interest to reflect that. It sounds like you overreported your interest income in the past 3 years.

Question: Widow of IRS employee killed by Joseph Stack’s plane is suing pilot’s widow?
AUSTIN, Tex. – The widow of the Internal Revenue Service employee killed when a Texas man crashed his plane into the agency’s office is suing the pilot’s widow.
The lawsuit against Sheryl Stack seeks to determine if her husband, Joseph Stack, left behind insurance policies or other assets, attorney Daniel Ross says.
Ross represents Valerie Hunter, whose husband, Vernon Hunter, 68, was killed last week when, authorities say, Joseph Stack deliberately crashed his single-engine plane into the IRS office.
The pilot left behind a lengthy anti-government Internet posting blaming the IRS for his problems.
The lawsuit, filed Monday, says Sheryl Stack should have warned others about her husband.
What do you think of this ???
Answer: It seems like a greedy woman and an ambulance-chasing lawyer got together to try to sue for more than the deceased would have made in 10 lifetimes. This is a perfect example of the need for “loser pays” tort reform. A counter-suit would be in order against both the plaintiff and her attorney. If I were on the jury, the case would be dismissed out of hand. If anything, a monetary award would be made to the defendant in compensation for grief and suffering caused by the plaintiff and her attorney.
