For income tax purposes, the terms “business” and “business use” are generally used interchangeably to refer to non-fictional business use of property. Because of the definition of “business use,” such property may be owned for tax purposes throughout the year.
Who should complete Form 8889?
There are many reasons to complete a Form 8889. For example: Your employer may ask you to fill out a Form 8889 to show that you have received unemployment compensation after you were injured and that your injuries were not work-related, even though the injuries were severe enough to qualify for temporary disability compensation or unemployment compensation. You may have to file a Form 8889 to show you were terminated from a position because of severe or continuous mental incompetence, even though that condition did not result from an injury. A court may agree to this form when you say you think you could have performed your job properly had the company paid you for it. You may have a health problem that qualifies you for disability compensation. If you were injured at a workplace that is covered under the laws of Canada or a foreign country for workers' compensation, you may have to ask the employer to pay disability compensation for you. You may have to file a Form 8889 because your employer failed to pay you unemployment compensation when you were injured. If you have been terminated from your job for this reason, you should complete a Form 8889 in order to show that the employer failed to pay, despite what the employer says about its inability to pay you (or its intent not to pay). A government department or agency may also use a Form 8889 to determine if you're eligible for income support, food assistance, social housing or employment insurance. If they do, you should complete a Form 8889 to show that the agency believes you should have received the benefit before you were injured. There are many ways to prove to government departments that you should be receiving any benefits. Some of them include: Your employer's report that you did not apply for or get any benefits The letter from your employer that explains why the benefits were never paid to you Your employer's application for unemployment compensation.

How many people fill out Form 8889 each year?
In 2008, a total of 11,000 Form 8889s were filed, which is equivalent to about 21 percent of all new applications to the IRS. In 2011, the number of such returns was down 8 percent from the 2008 level and about 16 percent from 2008 levels when it was about 22,000. The data show the number of Americans filing for a tax credit or refund declined in 2008 (+5 percent compared to the previous year), 2009 (+8 percent), 2010 (+23 percent) and 2011 and actually increased in 2012. (See graph below) The Form 8889 is designed to inform taxpayers about their taxes and the benefits they would receive if they can get the money back when the IRS has assessed a 3,050 assessment under the Additional Child Credit. These cases are referred to as back-dated returns. Since 2009, the number of such cases filed has declined by more than 10,000. Why are fewer Americans filing a back-dated federal income tax return? One of the primary reasons is that the IRS has changed its process of how they issue assessments for back-dated returns. They are now being denied (sometimes after receiving taxpayer documents) if there are no tax issues associated with the back-dated filings. Also, the back-dated returns are now only being submitted for certain types of tax events. Another reason is that the IRS has reduced their back-dated filing options as a result of a new audit program. The new procedures require taxpayers seeking a back-dated assessment to either attach documents or submit a separate certified letter and the supporting documentation on the back of the Form 8889. If there is any evidence that the income did not originate from that back-dated return and the taxpayer had no knowledge of it, the assessment will be denied. Additionally, all the documents must be submitted before September 1 to avoid any additional penalties. This is likely contributing to the rise in the number of back-dated return filings since early 2012. In addition to these policy changes, some states have added reporting requirements and limitations in order to limit the number of “back-dated” returns filed. How do tax return filers file a back-dated return? If the taxpayer can prove one of the following items, the taxpayer may not file a back-dated return: The taxpayer's spouse has died. The taxpayer is not the surviving spouse on the surviving spouse's return.
