Filing taxes BACKGROUND SECTION 3. Filing taxes SCOPE SECTION 4. Filing taxes APPLICATION. Filing taxes 01 Limitations on Depreciation Deductions for Certain Automobiles. Filing taxes . Filing taxes 02 Inclusions in Income of Lessees of Passenger Automobiles. Filing taxes SECTION 5. Filing taxes EFFECTIVE DATE SECTION 6. Filing taxes DRAFTING INFORMATION SECTION 1. Filing taxes PURPOSE This revenue procedure provides: (1) limitations on depreciation deductions for owners of passenger automobiles first placed in service by the taxpayer during calendar year 2012, including separate tables of limitations on depreciation deductions for trucks and vans; and (2) the amounts that must be included in income by lessees of passenger automobiles first leased by the taxpayer during calendar year 2012, including a separate table of inclusion amounts for lessees of trucks and vans. Filing taxes The tables detailing these depreciation limitations and lessee inclusion amounts reflect the automobile price inflation adjustments required by § 280F(d)(7) of the Internal Revenue Code. Filing taxes SECTION 2. Filing taxes BACKGROUND . Filing taxes 01 For owners of passenger automobiles, § 280F(a) imposes dollar limitations on the depreciation deduction for the year the taxpayer places the passenger automobile in service and for each succeeding year. Filing taxes For passenger automobiles placed in service after 1988, § 280F(d)(7) requires the Internal Revenue Service to increase the amounts allowable as depreciation deductions by a price inflation adjustment amount. Filing taxes The method of calculating this price inflation amount for trucks and vans placed in service in or after calendar year 2003 uses a different CPI “automobile component” (the “new trucks” component) than that used in the price inflation amount calculation for other passenger automobiles (the “new cars” component), resulting in somewhat higher depreciation deductions for trucks and vans. Filing taxes This change reflects the higher rate of price inflation for trucks and vans since 1988. Filing taxes . Filing taxes 02 Section 401(a) of the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010, Pub. Filing taxes L. Filing taxes No. Filing taxes 111-312, 124 Stat. Filing taxes 3296 (Dec. Filing taxes 17, 2010) (the “Act”) extended the 50 percent additional first year depreciation deduction under § 168(k) to qualified property acquired by the taxpayer after December 31, 2007, and before January 1, 2013, if no written binding contract for the acquisition of the property existed before January 1, 2008, and if the taxpayer places the property in service generally before January 1, 2013. Filing taxes Section 168(k)(2)(F)(i) increases the first year depreciation allowed under § 280F(a)(1)(A)(i) by $8,000 for passenger automobiles to which the additional first year depreciation deduction under § 168(k) (hereinafter, referred to as “§ 168(k) additional first year depreciation deduction”) applies. Filing taxes . Filing taxes 03 Section 168(k)(2)(D)(i) provides that the § 168(k) additional first year depreciation deduction does not apply to any property required to be depreciated under the alternative depreciation system of § 168(g), including property described in § 280F(b)(1). Filing taxes Section 168(k)(2)(D)(iii) permits a taxpayer to elect out of the § 168(k) additional first year depreciation deduction for any class of property. Filing taxes Section 168(k)(4), as amended by the Act, permits a corporation to elect to increase the alternative minimum tax (“AMT”) credit limitation under § 53(c), instead of claiming the § 168(k) additional first year depreciation deduction for all eligible qualified property placed in service after December 31, 2010, that is round 2 extension property (as defined in § 168(k)(4)(I)(iv)). Filing taxes Accordingly, this revenue procedure provides tables for passenger automobiles for which the § 168(k) additional first year depreciation deduction applies. Filing taxes This revenue procedure also provides tables for passenger automobiles for which the § 168(k) additional first year depreciation deduction does not apply, either because taxpayer (1) purchased the passenger automobile used; (2) did not use the passenger automobile during 2012 more than 50 percent for business purposes; (3) elected out of the § 168(k) additional first year depreciation deduction pursuant to § 168(k)(2)(D)(iii); or (4) elected to increase the § 53 AMT credit limitation in lieu of claiming § 168(k) additional first year depreciation. Filing taxes . Filing taxes 04 Section 280F(c) requires a reduction in the deduction allowed to the lessee of a leased passenger automobile. Filing taxes The reduction must be substantially equivalent to the limitations on the depreciation deductions imposed on owners of passenger automobiles. Filing taxes Under § 1. Filing taxes 280F-7(a) of the Income Tax Regulations, this reduction requires a lessee to include in gross income an amount determined by applying a formula to the amount obtained from a table. Filing taxes One table applies to lessees of trucks and vans and another table applies to all other passenger automobiles. Filing taxes Each table shows inclusion amounts for a range of fair market values for each taxable year after the passenger automobile is first leased. Filing taxes SECTION 3. Filing taxes SCOPE . Filing taxes 01 The limitations on depreciation deductions in section 4. Filing taxes 01(2) of this revenue procedure apply to passenger automobiles (other than leased passenger automobiles) that are placed in service by the taxpayer in calendar year 2012, and continue to apply for each taxable year that the passenger automobile remains in service. Filing taxes . Filing taxes 02 The tables in section 4. Filing taxes 02 of this revenue procedure apply to leased passenger automobiles for which the lease term begins during calendar year 2012. Filing taxes Lessees of these passenger automobiles must use these tables to determine the inclusion amount for each taxable year during which the passenger automobile is leased.

Filing taxes SECTION 4. Filing taxes APPLICATION . Filing taxes 01 Limitations on Depreciation Deductions for Certain Automobiles. Filing taxes (1) Amount of the inflation adjustment. Filing taxes (a) Passenger automobiles (other than trucks or vans). Filing taxes Under § 280F(d)(7)(B)(i), the automobile price inflation adjustment for any calendar year is the percentage (if any) by which the CPI automobile component for October of the preceding calendar year exceeds the CPI automobile component for October 1987. Filing taxes Section 280F(d)(7)(B)(ii) defines the term “CPI automobile component” as the automobile component of the Consumer Price Index for all Urban Consumers published by the Department of Labor. Filing taxes The new car component of the CPI was 115. Filing taxes 2 for October 1987 and 143. Filing taxes 419 for October 2011. Filing taxes The October 2011 index exceeded the October 1987 index by 28. Filing taxes 219. Filing taxes Therefore, the automobile price inflation adjustment for 2012 for passenger automobiles (other than trucks and vans) is 24. Filing taxes 5 percent (28. Filing taxes 219/115. Filing taxes 2 x 100%). Filing taxes The dollar limitations in § 280F(a) are multiplied by a factor of 0. Filing taxes 245, and the resulting increases, after rounding to the nearest $100, are added to the 1988 limitations to give the depreciation limitations applicable to passenger automobiles (other than trucks and vans) for calendar year 2012. Filing taxes This adjustment applies to all passenger automobiles (other than trucks and vans) that are first placed in service in calendar year 2012. Filing taxes (b) Trucks and vans. Filing taxes To determine the dollar limitations for trucks and vans first placed in service during calendar year 2012, the Service uses the new truck component of the CPI instead of the new car component. Filing taxes The new truck component of the CPI was 112. Filing taxes 4 for October 1987 and 146. Filing taxes 607 for October 2011. Filing taxes The October 2011 index exceeded the October 1987 index by 34. Filing taxes 207. Filing taxes Therefore, the automobile price inflation adjustment for 2012 for trucks and vans is 30. Filing taxes 43 percent (34. Filing taxes 207/112. Filing taxes 4 x 100%). Filing taxes The dollar limitations in § 280F(a) are multiplied by a factor of 0. Filing taxes 3043, and the resulting increases, after rounding to the nearest $100, are added to the 1988 limitations to give the depreciation limitations for trucks and vans. Filing taxes This adjustment applies to all trucks and vans that are first placed in service in calendar year 2012. Filing taxes (2) Amount of the limitation. Filing taxes Tables 1 through 4 contain the dollar amount of the depreciation limitation for each taxable year for passenger automobiles a taxpayer places in service in calendar year 2012. Filing taxes Use Table 1 for a passenger automobile (other than a truck or van), and Table 2 for a truck or van, placed in service in calendar year 2012 for which the § 168(k) additional first year depreciation deduction applies. Filing taxes Use Table 3 for a passenger automobile (other than a truck or van), and Table 4 for a truck or van, placed in service in calendar year 2012 for which the § 168(k) additional first year depreciation deduction does not apply.

Filing taxes 02 Inclusions in Income of Lessees of Passenger Automobiles. Filing taxes A taxpayer must follow the procedures in § 1. Filing taxes 280F-7(a) for determining the inclusion amounts for passenger automobiles first leased in calendar year 2012.
