Does any one have information on the proper procedures for filing an Alaska Housing Energy Rebate as non-taxable. When the Energy Rebates first came out I discussed this issue with the accounting and legal departments at Alaska Housing after I saw that they were issuing form #1099M to report the rebate to IRS as income. I argued that it was simply a reimbursement. Their standpoint was that it was taxable and it was required to be reported on form #1099M. I asked them to show me the requirement which they did not. IRS Pubs 551 & 525 suggest you can exclude an Energy Subsidies from income, without further instructions. What documentation or procedure do you use to file so that you do not receive a CP2000 or considered as an under-reporter?
I enjoyed our annual education meeting the AK Chapter put on. Does anyone have any suggestions for next years topic?
