information provided by the executor or see Publication 4895, Tax Treatment of Property Acquired From a Decedent Dying in 2010. 1040a Fair market value. 1040a Fair market value is the price for which you could sell your property to a willing buyer, when neither of you has to sell or buy and both of you know all the relevant facts. 1040a When filling out Schedules 1 through 6, you need to know the fair market value of the property immediately before and immediately after the disaster or casualty. 1040a Deduction limits. 1040a If your casualty or theft loss involved a home you used for business or rented out, your deductible loss may be limited. 1040a See the Instructions for Form 4684, Section B. 1040a If the casualty or theft loss involved property used in a passive activity, see Form

deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040), must be reduced by 2% of your adjusted gross income. 1040a Employee property is property used in performing services as an employee. 1040a Comments and
