1040ez form for 2010 If you select a 35- or 45-year recovery period, use either Table 13 or 14. 1040ez form for 2010 Example. 1040ez form for 2010 You placed in service an apartment building on August 3, 1986. 1040ez form for 2010 The building is 19-year real property. 1040ez form for 2010 The sales contract allocated $300,000 to the building and $100,000 to the land. 1040ez form for 2010 You use the calendar year as your tax year. 1040ez form for 2010 You chose the alternate ACRS method over a recovery period of 35 years. 1040ez form for 2010 For 1986, you figure your ACRS deduction

alternate recovery periods are 15, 35, or 45 years. 1040ez form for 2010 If you selected a 15-year period for this property, use 6. 1040ez form for 2010 667% as the percentage. 1040ez form for 2010 If you selected a 35- or 45-year period, use either Table 11, 12, or 15. 1040ez form for 2010 Election. 1040ez form for 2010   You had to make the election to use the alternate ACRS method by the return

basis. 1040ez form for 2010 Figure the amount of the ACRS deduction for a short tax year as follows: First, you figure the ACRS deduction for a full year. 1040ez form for 2010 You figure this by multiplying the unadjusted basis by the recovery percentage. 1040ez form for 2010 You then multiply the ACRS deduction determined for a full tax year by a fraction. 1040ez form for 2010 The numerator (top number) of the fraction is the number of months in the short tax year and the denominator (bottom number) is 12. 1040ez form for 2010 For example, a corporation placed in service in June 1986 an item of 3-year property with an unadjusted basis of $10,000. 1040ez form for 2010 The corporation files a tax return, because of a change in its accounting period, for the 6-month short tax year ending June 30, 1986. 1040ez form for 2010 The full year's ACRS deduction for this item is $2,500 ($10,000 ÷ 25%), the first year percentage from the 3-year table. 1040ez form for 2010 The ACRS deduction for the short tax year is $1,250 ($2,500 ÷ 6/12). 1040ez form for 2010 You use the full ACRS percentages during the remaining years of the recovery period. 1040ez form for 2010 For the first tax year after the recovery period, the unrecovered basis will be deductible. 1040ez form for 2010 Exception. 1040ez form for 2010   For the tax year in which you placed 15-, 18-, or 19-year real property in service or in the tax year you dispose of it, you compute the ACRS deduction for the number of months that the property is in service during that tax year. 1040ez form for 2010 You compute the number of months using either a full month or mid-month convention. 1040ez form for 2010 This is true regardless of the number of months in the tax year and the recovery period and method used. 1040ez form for 2010 Dispositions A disposition is the permanent withdrawal of property from use in your trade or business or in the production of income. 1040ez form for 2010 You can make a withdrawal by sale, exchange, retirement, abandonment, or destruction. 1040ez form for 2010 You generally recognize gain or loss on the disposition of an asset by sale. 1040ez form for 2010 However, nonrecognition rules can allow you to postpone some gain. 1040ez form for 2010 See Publication 544. 1040ez form for 2010 If you physically abandon property, you can deduct as a loss the adjusted basis of the asset at the time of its abandonment. 1040ez form for 2010 Your intent must be to discard the asset so that you will not use it again or retrieve it for sale, exchange, or other disposition. 1040ez form for 2010 Early dispositions. 1040ez form for 2010   The disposal of an asset before the end of its specified recovery period, is referred to as an early disposition. 1040ez form for 2010

15-, 18-, or 19-year real property. 1040ez form for 2010   Generally, you get no ACRS deduction for the tax year in which you dispose of or retire recovery property, except for 15-, 18-, and 19-year real property. 1040ez form for 2010 This means there is no depreciation deduction under ACRS in the year you dispose of or retire any of your 3-, 5-, or 10-year recovery property. 1040ez form for 2010 Dispositions — mass asset accounts. 1040ez form for 2010   The law provides a special rule to avoid the calculation of gain on the disposition of assets from mass asset accounts. 1040ez form for 2010 A mass asset account includes items usually minor in value in relation to the group, numerous in quantity, impractical to separately identify, and not usually accounted for on a separate basis, but on a total dollar value. 1040ez form for 2010 Examples of mass assets include minor items of office, plant, and store furniture and fixtures. 1040ez form for 2010   Under the special rule, if you elected to use a mass asset account, you recognize gain to the extent of the proceeds from the disposition of the asset. 1040ez form for 2010 You leave the unadjusted basis of the property in the account until recovered in future years. 1040ez form for 2010 If you did this, include the total proceeds realized from the disposition in income on the tax return for the year of disposition. 1040ez form for 2010 Early dispositions — 15-year real property. 1040ez form for 2010   If you dispose of 15-year real property, you base your ACRS deduction for the year of disposition on the number of months in use. 1040ez form for 2010 You use a full-month convention. 1040ez form for 2010 For a disposition at any time during a particular month before the end of the recovery period, no deduction is allowed for the month of disposition. 1040ez form for 2010 This applies whether you use the regular ACRS method or elected the alternate ACRS method. 1040ez form for 2010 Example. 1040ez form for 2010 You purchased and placed in service a rental house on March 2, 1984, for $98,000 (not including the cost of land). 1040ez form for 2010 You file your return based on a calendar year. 1040ez form for 2010

figured your ACRS deductions using 11%, 9%, 8%, and 7% ÷ $98,000. 1040ez form for 2010 For 1989 through 1992, you figured your ACRS deductions using 6% for each year. 1040ez form for 2010 The deduction each year was $98,000 ÷ 6%. 1040ez form for 2010 For 1993 and 1994, the ACRS deduction is ($98,000 ÷ 5%) $4,900 for each year. 1040ez form for 2010 You sell the house on June 1, 1995. 1040ez form for 2010 You figure your ACRS deduction for 1995 for the full year and then prorate that amount for the months of use. 1040ez form for 2010 The full ACRS deduction for 1995 is $4,900 ($98,000 ÷ 5%). 1040ez form for 2010 You then prorate this amount to the 5 months in 1995 during which it was rented. 1040ez form for 2010 Your ACRS deduction for 1995 is $2,042 ($4,900 ÷ 5/12). 1040ez form for 2010 Early dispositions — 18- and 19-year real property. 1040ez form for 2010   If you dispose of 18- or 19-year real property, you base your ACRS deduction for the year of disposition on the number of months in use. 1040ez form for 2010 For 18-year property placed in service before June 23, 1984, use a full-month convention on a disposition. 1040ez form for 2010 For 18-year property placed in service after June 22, 1984, and for 19-year property, determine the number of months in use by using the mid-month convention. 1040ez form for 2010 Under the mid-month convention,treat real property disposed of any time during a month as disposed of in the middle of that month. 1040ez form for 2010 Count the month of disposition as half a month of use. 1040ez form for 2010 Example. 1040ez form for 2010 You purchased and placed in service a rental house on July 2, 1984, for $100,000 (not including the cost of land). 1040ez form for 2010 You file your return based on a calendar year. 1040ez form for 2010 Your rate from Table 4 for the seventh month is 4%. 1040ez form for 2010 You figured your ACRS deduction for 1984 was $4,000 ($100,000 ÷ 4%). 1040ez form for 2010 In 1985 through 1994, your ACRS deductions were 9%, 8%, 8%, 7%, 6%, 6%, 5%, 5%, and 5% ÷ $100,000. 1040ez form for 2010 You sell the house on September 24, 1995. 1040ez form for 2010 Figure your ACRS deduction for 1995 for the months of use. 1040ez form for 2010 The full ACRS deduction for 1995 is $5,000 ($100,000 ÷ 5%). 1040ez form for 2010 Prorate this amount for the 8. 1040ez form for 2010 5 months in 1995 that you held the property. 1040ez form for 2010 Under the mid-month convention, you count September as half a month. 1040ez form for 2010 Your ACRS deduction for 1995 is $3,542 ($5,000 ÷ 8. 1040ez form for 2010 5/12). 1040ez form for 2010 Depreciation Recapture If you dispose of property depreciated under ACRS that is section 1245 recovery property, you will generally recognize gain or loss. 1040ez form

The Internet gives you easy access to information, entertainment, financial offers and countless other services. The flip-side, however, is that it can leave you vulnerable to online scammers, identity thieves, and criminals. To guard against Internet fraud, follow the tips below:

Know your seller. If you don't, do some research.

  • Company websites often provide information in a section called "About Us". Some online sellers participate in programs, such as BBBOnLine, that help resolve problems. Look for a logo or endorsement seal on the company website. This is an indication, but not a guarantee, of the seller's reliability.
  • Check with state and/or local consumer offices.
  • Another way to check online sellers is to look for other consumers' comments. Visit Bizrate, where consumers rate online stores. Some Internet auction sites post ratings of sellers based on comments by buyers. This information may give you some idea of how you'll be treated, but beware of too many glowing stories that might have ben placed by sellers themselves.

Protect your personal information. Don't provide it in response to an e-mail, a pop-up, or a website you've linked to from an e-mail or web page.

  • Take your time and resist any urge to "act now" to keep your account open or take advantage of a special offer.
  • Use anti-virus and anti-spyware software, as well as a firewall, and update them all regularly. Make sure your operating system and web browser are set up properly and update them regularly as well.
  • Protect your passwords. Don't share your passwords with anyone. Memorize them.
  • Back up important files. Copy them onto another computer or a removable hard drive such as a flash memory stick. When you spill coffee on your laptop or if your computer stops working, you'll be glad you did.

Learn who to contact if something goes wrong online. Report suspected fraud to your bank, credit card company or relevant authority.

The FTC provides tips to help secure your computer, guard against Internet fraud, and protect your personal information. Visit OnGuardOnline for more information. To keep up to date with the latest computer threats, signup for alerts from the Department of Homeland Security.

Social Networking Privacy

Social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, craigslist, and others continue to gain popularity. These sites make it easy to re-connect, stay in touch, and even do business. But recent reports involving privacy concerns and crimes should make you more careful about the information they share. Some tips to consider to protect your privacy and safety include:

  • Make your contact information private.
  • Limit who can search for your profile on Internet search engines.
  • Manage who can view your images; untag photos if necessary.
  • Create seperate lists to manage who can see information you've posted.
  • Be careful about who can see your status updates.
  • Refrain from telling people where you are at any specific time.
  • Be cautious about arranging meetings in person with online acquaintances.
