Free military taxes Sin embargo, no puede deducir una pérdida por hecho fortuito o robo que esté cubierta por seguro a menos que haya presentado oportunamente una reclamación de reembolso al seguro. Free military taxes Todo reembolso que usted reciba reducirá la cantidad de la pérdida. Free military taxes Si no presentó una reclamación de reembolso al seguro, puede deducir únicamente la porción de la pérdida que no haya sido protegida por dicho seguro. Free military taxes Cantidad de la pérdida. Free military taxes   Calcule la cantidad de su pérdida de la siguiente forma: Determine su costo u otra base en la propiedad antes del hecho fortuito o robo. Free military taxes Determine la disminución en el valor justo de mercado de la propiedad como resultado del hecho fortuito o robo. Free military taxes (La disminución del valor justo de mercado es la diferencia entre el valor de la propiedad inmediatamente antes e inmediatamente después del hecho fortuito o robo). Free military taxes De la cantidad menor de los puntos anteriores (1) y (2), reste todo reembolso del seguro o de otra fuente que usted haya recibido o espere recibir. Free military taxes   Aplique los límites a la deducción, explicados más adelante, para determinar la cantidad de su pérdida deducible. Free military taxes Costo u otra base. Free military taxes   El costo u otra base significa generalmente el costo original más toda mejora realizada a la propiedad. Free military taxes Si no adquirió la propiedad por medio de una compra, su base se determina según se explica en la Publicación 551, Basis of Assets (Base de los Bienes), en inglés. Free military taxes Si usted heredó propiedad de alguien que falleció en 2010 y el albacea del caudal hereditario eligió presentar el Formulario 8939, favor de referirse a la información proporcionada por el albacea, o vea la Publicación 4895, Tax Treatment of Property Acquired from a Decedent Dying in 2010 (Trato tributario de la propiedad adquirida de un difunto que falleció en 2010), en inglés. Free military taxes Valor justo de mercado. Free military taxes   El valor justo de mercado (FMV, por sus siglas en inglés) es el precio por el cual podría vender su propiedad a una persona dispuesta a comprarla, cuando ninguno de los dos tiene que vender o comprar y ambos están informados de todos los hechos pertinentes. Free military taxes Al llenar los Anexos 1 al 20, se necesita saber el valor justo de mercado de la propiedad inmediatamente antes e inmediatamente después del desastre, hecho fortuito o robo. Free military taxes Cálculos separados. Free military taxes   Generalmente, si un solo hecho fortuito o robo involucra más de un artículo de propiedad, usted tiene que calcular la pérdida de cada artículo por separado. Free military taxes Luego, sume las pérdidas para determinar la pérdida total de ese hecho fortuito o robo. Free military taxes Excepción en el caso de propiedad inmueble de uso personal. Free military taxes   Para calcular una pérdida de bienes inmuebles (bienes raíces) de uso personal, la propiedad entera (incluidas todas las mejoras como edificios, árboles y arbustos) se considera una unidad. Free military taxes Calcule la pérdida utilizando la menor de las siguientes cantidades: La disminución en el valor justo de mercado de toda la propiedad. Free military taxes La base ajustada de toda la propiedad. Free military taxes Límites de la deducción. Free military taxes   Después de calcular la cantidad de su pérdida según la explicación anterior, tiene que calcular qué cantidad de la pérdida puede deducir. Free military taxes Esto se hace en la sección A del Formulario 4684, en inglés. Free military taxes Si la pérdida fue de bienes de uso personal o de su familia, existen dos límites sobre la cantidad que puede deducir como pérdida por hecho fortuito o robo: Tiene que reducir cada pérdida por hecho fortuito o robo por $100 (la regla de $100). Free military taxes Tiene que reducir además el total de todas sus pérdidas por 10% de su ingreso bruto ajustado (la regla del 10%). Free military taxes Más información. Free military taxes   Vea la Publicación 547(SP) para más información sobre los límites de esta deducción. Free military taxes Cuándo su pérdida es deducible. Free military taxes   Normalmente, puede deducir una pérdida por hecho fortuito, o aquélla sufrida en una zona de desastre, sólo en el año tributario en el que aconteció el hecho fortuito o desastre. Free military taxes Normalmente puede deducir una pérdida por robo de propiedad sólo en el año en el que descubrió dicho robo. Free military taxes No obstante, tiene la opción de deducir las pérdidas sufridas en una zona de desastre en la declaración del año inmediatamente antes del año del desastre si el Presidente de los Estados Unidos ha declarado dicha área como zona de desastre federal.
