In today's economy, the advice is usually to lend carefully to avoid problems with borrowers. You need also to protect yourself from the IRS. If you loan money and don't charge interest (not uncommon within the family), the IRS will impute interest income at the applicable federal rate and consider it taxable income to you. Recent rates range from 0.75 percent to 3.88 percent, depending on the size and length of the loan. If you lend a sizable stma to fund a home purchase or a business, your tax cost couldbe considerable. Smart move: Put the loan terms in writing, to be signedby both parties. This shows the IRS that the amount is not a gift subject to gift tax. Do charge interest. Important: If the loan is secured by a personal residence, file a mortgage with the county clerk so that the borrower can deduct the interest payments.
