I need to file my 2010 taxes free If your property qualified for MACRS, you must depreciate it under MACRS. I need to file my 2010 taxes free See Publication 946. I need to file my 2010 taxes free However, you cannot use MACRS for certain property because of special rules that exclude it from MACRS. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Also, you can elect to exclude certain property from being depreciated under MACRS. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Property that you cannot depreciate using MACRS includes: Intangible property, Property you can elect to exclude from MACRS that you properly depreciate under a method that is not based on a term of years, Certain public utility property, Any motion picture film or video tape, Any sound recording, and Certain real and personal property placed in service before 1987. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Intangible property. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   You cannot depreciate intangible property under ACRS or MACRS. I need to file my 2010 taxes free You depreciate intangible property using any other reasonable method, usually, the straight line method. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Note. I need to file my 2010 taxes free The cost of certain intangible property that you acquire after August 10, 1993, must be amortized over a 15-year period. I need to file my 2010 taxes free For more information, see chapter 12 of Publication 535. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Public utility property.

I need to file my 2010 taxes free   If you are in the videocassette rental business, you can depreciate those videocassettes purchased for rental. I need to file my 2010 taxes free You can depreciate the cost less salvage value of those videocassettes that have a useful life over one year using either: The straight line method, or The income forecast method. I need to file my 2010 taxes free The straight line method, salvage value, and useful life are discussed later under Methods To Use. I need to file my 2010 taxes free You can deduct in the year of purchase as a business expense the cost of any cassette that has a useful life of one year or less. I need to file my 2010 taxes free How To Figure the Deduction Two other reasonable methods can be used to figure your deduction for property not covered under ACRS or MACRS. I need to file my 2010 taxes free These methods are straight line and declining balance. I need to file my 2010 taxes free To figure depreciation using these methods, you must generally determine three things about the property you intend to depreciate. I need to file my 2010 taxes free They are: The basis, The useful life, and The estimated salvage value at the end of its useful life. I need to file my 2010 taxes free The amount of the deduction in any year also depends on which method of depreciation you choose. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Basis To deduct the proper amount of depreciation each year, first determine your basis in the property you intend to depreciate. I need to file my 2010 taxes free The basis used for figuring depreciation is the same as the basis that would be used for figuring the gain on a sale. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Your original basis is usually the purchase price. I need to file my 2010 taxes free However, if you acquire property in some other way, such as inheriting it, getting it as a gift, or building it yourself, you have to figure your original basis in a different way. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Adjusted basis. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   Events will often change the basis of property. I need to file my 2010 taxes free When this occurs, the changed basis is called the adjusted basis. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Some events, such as improvements you make, increase basis. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Events such as deducting casualty losses and depreciation decrease basis. I need to file my 2010 taxes free If basis is adjusted, the depreciation deduction may also have to be changed, depending on the reason for the adjustment and the method of depreciation you are using. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   Publication 551 explains how to figure basis for property acquired in different ways. I need to file my 2010 taxes free It also discusses what items increase and decrease basis, how to figure adjusted basis, and how to allocate cost if you buy several pieces of property at one time. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Useful Life The useful life of a piece of property is an estimate of how long you can expect to use it in your trade or business, or to produce income. I need to file my 2010 taxes free It is the length of time over which you will make yearly depreciation deductions of your basis in the property. I need to file my 2010 taxes free It is how long it will continue to be useful to you, not how long the property will last. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Many things affect the useful life of property, such as: Frequency of use, Age when acquired, Your repair policy, and Environmental conditions. I need to file my 2010 taxes free The useful life can also be affected by technological improvements, progress in the arts, reasonably foreseeable economic changes, shifting of business centers, prohibitory laws, and other causes. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Consider all these factors before you arrive at a useful life for your property. I need to file my 2010 taxes free The useful life of the same type of property varies from user to user. I need to file my 2010 taxes free When you determine the useful life of your property, keep in mind your own experience with similar property. I need to file my 2010 taxes free You can use the general experience of the industry you are in until you are able to determine a useful life of your property from your own experience. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Change in useful life. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   You base your estimate of useful life on certain facts. I need to file my 2010 taxes free If these facts change significantly, you can adjust your estimate of the remaining useful life. I need to file my 2010 taxes free However, you redetermine the estimated useful life only when the change is substantial and there is a clear reason for making the change. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Salvage Value It is important for you to accurately determine the correct salvage value of the property you want to depreciate. I need to file my 2010 taxes free You generally cannot depreciate property below a reasonable salvage value. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Determining salvage value. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   Salvage value is the estimated value of property at the end of its useful life. I need to file my 2010 taxes free It is what you expect to get for the property if you sell it after you can no longer use it productively. I need to file my 2010 taxes free You must estimate the salvage value of a piece of property when you first acquire it. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   Salvage value is affected both by how you use the property and how long you use it. I need to file my 2010 taxes free If it is your policy to dispose of property that is still in good operating condition, the salvage value can be relatively large. I need to file my 2010 taxes free However, if your policy is to use property until it is no longer usable, its salvage value can be its junk value. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Changing salvage value. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   Once you determine the salvage value for property, you should not change it merely because prices have changed. I need to file my 2010 taxes free However, if you redetermine the useful life of property, as discussed earlier under Change in useful life, you can also redetermine the salvage value. I need to file my 2010 taxes free When you redetermine the salvage value, take into account the facts that exist at the time. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Net salvage. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   Net salvage is the salvage value of property minus what it costs to remove it when you dispose of it. I need to file my 2010 taxes free You can choose either salvage value or net salvage when you figure depreciation. I need to file my 2010 taxes free You must consistently use the one you choose and the treatment of the costs of removal must be consistent with the practice adopted. I need to file my 2010 taxes free However, if the cost to remove the property is more than the estimated salvage value, then net salvage is zero. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Your salvage value can never be less than zero. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Ten percent rule. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   If you acquire personal property that has a useful life of 3 years or more, you can use an amount for salvage value that is less than your actual estimate. I need to file my 2010 taxes free You can subtract from your estimate of salvage value an amount equal to 10% of your basis in the property. I need to file my 2010 taxes free If salvage value is less than 10% of basis, you can ignore salvage value when you figure depreciation. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Methods To Use Two methods of depreciation are the straight line and declining balance methods. I need to file my 2010 taxes free If ACRS or MACRS does not apply, you can use one of these methods. I need to file my 2010 taxes free The straight line and declining balance methods discussed in this section are not figured in the same way as straight line or declining balance methods under MACRS. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Straight Line Method Before 1981, you could use any reasonable method for every kind of depreciable property. I need to file my 2010 taxes free One of these methods was the straight line method. I need to file my 2010 taxes free This method was also used for intangible property. I need to file my 2010 taxes free It lets you deduct the same amount of depreciation each year. I need to file my 2010 taxes free To figure your deduction, determine the adjusted basis of your property, its salvage value, and its estimated useful life. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Subtract the salvage value, if any, from the adjusted basis. I need to file my 2010 taxes free The balance is the total amount of depreciation you can take over the useful life of the property. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Divide the balance by the number of years remaining in the useful life. I need to file my 2010 taxes free This gives you the amount of your yearly depreciation deduction. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Unless there is a big change in adjusted basis, or useful life, this amount will stay the same throughout the time you depreciate the property. I need to file my 2010 taxes free If, in the first year, you use the property for less than a full year, you must prorate your depreciation deduction for the number of months in use. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Example. I need to file my 2010 taxes free In April 1994, Frank bought a franchise for $5,600. I need to file my 2010 taxes free It expires in 10 years. I need to file my 2010 taxes free This property is intangible property that cannot be depreciated under MACRS. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Frank depreciates the franchise under the straight line method, using a 10-year useful life and no salvage value. I need to file my 2010 taxes free He takes the $5,600 basis and divides that amount by 10 years ($5,600 ÷ 10 = $560, a full year's use). I need to file my 2010 taxes free He must prorate the $560 for his 9 months of use in 1994. I need to file my 2010 taxes free This gives him a deduction of $420 ($560 ÷ 9/12). I need to file my 2010 taxes free In 1995, Frank can deduct $560 for the full year. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Declining Balance Method The declining balance method allows you to recover a larger amount of the cost of the property in the early years of your use of the property. I need to file my 2010 taxes free The rate cannot be more than twice the straight line rate. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Rate of depreciation. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   Under this method, you must determine your declining balance rate of depreciation. I need to file my 2010 taxes free The initial step is to: Divide the number 1 by the useful life of your property to get a straight line rate. I need to file my 2010 taxes free (For example, if property has a useful life of 5 years, its normal straight line rate of depreciation is ⅕, or 20%. I need to file my 2010 taxes free ) Multiply this straight line rate by a number that is more than 1 but not more than 2 to determine the declining balance rate. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Unless there is a change in the useful life during the time you depreciate the property, the rate of depreciation generally will not change. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Depreciation deductions. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   After you determine the rate of depreciation, multiply the adjusted basis of the property by it. I need to file my 2010 taxes free This gives you the amount of your deduction. I need to file my 2010 taxes free For example, if your adjusted basis at the beginning of the first year is $10,000, and your declining balance rate is 20%, your depreciation deduction for the first year is $2,000 ($10,000 ÷ 20%). I need to file my 2010 taxes free To figure your depreciation deduction in the second year, you must first adjust the basis for the amount of depreciation you deducted in the first year. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Subtract the previous year's depreciation from your basis ($10,000 - $2,000 = $8,000). I need to file my 2010 taxes free Multiply this amount by the rate of depreciation ($8,000 ÷ 20% = $1,600). I need to file my 2010 taxes free Your depreciation deduction for the second year is $1,600. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   As you can see from this example, your adjusted basis in the property gets smaller each year. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Also, under this method, deductions are larger in the earlier years and smaller in the later years. I need to file my 2010 taxes free You can make a change to the straight line method without consent. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Salvage value. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   Do not subtract salvage value when you figure your yearly depreciation deductions under the declining balance method. I need to file my 2010 taxes free However, you cannot depreciate the property below its reasonable salvage value. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Determine salvage value using the rules discussed earlier, including the special 10% rule. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Example. I need to file my 2010 taxes free If your adjusted basis has been decreased to $1,000 and the rate of depreciation is 20%, your depreciation deduction should be $200. I need to file my 2010 taxes free But if your estimate of salvage value was $900, you can only deduct $100. I need to file my 2010 taxes free This is because $100 is the amount that would lower your adjusted basis to equal salvage value. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Income Forecast Method The income forecast method requires income projections for each videocassette or group of videocassettes. I need to file my 2010 taxes free You can group the videocassettes by title for making this projection. I need to file my 2010 taxes free You determine the depreciation by applying a fraction to the cost less salvage value of the cassette. I need to file my 2010 taxes free The numerator is the income from the videocassette for the tax year and the denominator is the total projected income for the cassette. I need to file my 2010 taxes free For more information on the income forecast method, see Revenue Ruling 60-358 in Cumulative Bulletin 1960, Volume 2, on page 68. I need to file my 2010 taxes free How To Change Methods In some cases, you may change your method of depreciation for property depreciated under a reasonable method. I need to file my 2010 taxes free If you change your method of depreciation, it is generally a change in your method of accounting. I need to file my 2010 taxes free You must get IRS consent before making the change. I need to file my 2010 taxes free However, you do not need permission for certain changes in your method of depreciation. I need to file my 2010 taxes free The rules discussed in this section do not apply to property depreciated under ACRS or MACRS. I need to file my 2010 taxes free For information on ACRS elections,see Revocation of election, in chapter 1 under Alternate ACRS Method. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Change to the straight line method. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   You can change from the declining balance method to the straight line method at any time during the useful life of your property without IRS consent. I need to file my 2010 taxes free However, if you have a written agreement with the IRS that prohibits a change, you must first get IRS permission. I need to file my 2010 taxes free When the change is made, figure depreciation based on your adjusted basis in the property at that time. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Your adjusted basis takes into account all previous depreciation deductions. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Use the estimated remaining useful life of your property at the time of change and its estimated salvage value. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   You can change from the declining balance method to straight line only on the original tax return for the year you first use the straight line method. I need to file my 2010 taxes free You cannot make the change on an amended return filed after the due date of the original return (including extensions). I need to file my 2010 taxes free   When you make the change, attach a statement to your tax return showing: When you acquired the property, Its original cost or other original basis, The total amount claimed for depreciation and other allowances since you acquired it, Its salvage value and remaining useful life, and A description of the property and its use. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   After you change to straight line, you cannot change back to the declining balance method or to any other method for a period of 10 years without written permission from the IRS. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Changes that require permission. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   For most other changes in method of depreciation, you must get permission from the IRS. I need to file my 2010 taxes free To request a change in method of depreciation, file Form 3115. I need to file my 2010 taxes free File the application within the first 180 days of the tax year the change is to become effective. I need to file my 2010 taxes free In most cases, there is a user fee that must accompany Form 3115. I need to file my 2010 taxes free See the instructions for Form 3115 to determine if a fee is required. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Changes granted automatically. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   The IRS automatically approves certain changes of a method of depreciation. I need to file my 2010 taxes free But, you must file Form 3115 for these automatic changes. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   However, IRS can deny permission if Form 3115 is not filed on time. I need to file my 2010 taxes free For more information on automatic changes, see Revenue Procedure 74-11, 1974-1 C. I need to file my 2010 taxes free B. I need to file my 2010 taxes free 420. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Changes for which approval is not automatic. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   The automatic change procedures do not apply to: Property or an account where you made a change in depreciation within the last 10 tax years (unless the change was made under the Class Life System), Class Life Asset Depreciation Range System, and Public utility property. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   You must request and receive permission for these changes. I need to file my 2010 taxes free To make the request, file Form 3115 during the first 180 days of the tax year for which you want the change to be effective. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Change from an improper method. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   If the IRS disallows the method you are using, you do not need permission to change to a proper method. I need to file my 2010 taxes free You can adopt the straight line method, or any other method that would have been permitted if you had used it from the beginning. I need to file my 2010 taxes free If you file your tax return using an improper method, but later file an amended return, you can use a proper method on the amended return without getting IRS permission. I need to file my 2010 taxes free However, you must file the amended return before the filing date for the next tax year. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Dispositions Retirement is the permanent withdrawal of depreciable property from use in your trade or business or for the production of income. I need to file my 2010 taxes free You can do this by selling, exchanging, or abandoning the item of property. I need to file my 2010 taxes free You can also withdraw it from use without disposing of it. I need to file my 2010 taxes free For example, you could place it in a supplies or scrap account. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Retirements can be either normal or abnormal depending on all facts and circumstances. I need to file my 2010 taxes free The rules discussed next do not apply to MACRS and ACRS property. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Normal retirement. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   A normal retirement is a permanent withdrawal of depreciable property from use if the following apply: The retirement is made within the useful life you estimated originally, and The property has reached a condition at which you customarily retire or would retire similar property from use. I need to file my 2010 taxes free A retirement is generally considered normal unless you can show that you retired the property because of a reason you did not consider when you originally estimated the useful life of the property. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Abnormal retirement. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   A retirement can be abnormal if you withdraw the property early or under other circumstances. I need to file my 2010 taxes free For example, if the property is damaged by a fire or suddenly becomes obsolete and is now useless. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Gain or loss on retirement. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   There are special rules for figuring the gain or loss on retirement of property. I need to file my 2010 taxes free The gain or loss will depend on several factors. I need to file my 2010 taxes free These include the type of withdrawal, if the withdrawal was from a single property or multiple property account, and if the retirement was normal or abnormal. I need to file my 2010 taxes free A single property account contains only one item of property. I need to file my 2010 taxes free A multiple property account is one in which several items have been combined with a single rate of depreciation assigned to the entire account. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Sale or exchange. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   If property is retired by sale or exchange, you figure gain or loss by the usual rules that apply to sales or other dispositions of property. I need to file my 2010 taxes free See Publication 544. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Property not disposed of or abandoned. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   If property is retired permanently, but not disposed of or physically abandoned, you do not recognize gain. I need to file my 2010 taxes free You are allowed a loss in such a case, but only if the retirement is: An abnormal retirement, A normal retirement from a single property account in which you determined the life of each item of property separately, or A normal retirement from a multiple property account in which the depreciation rate is based on the maximum expected life of the longest lived item of property and the loss occurs before the expiration of the full useful life. I need to file my 2010 taxes free However, you are not allowed a loss if the depreciation rate is based on the average useful life of the items of property in the account. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   To figure your loss, subtract the estimated salvage or fair market value of the property at the date of retirement, whichever is more, from its adjusted basis. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Special rule for normal retirements from item accounts. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   You can generally deduct losses upon retirement of a few depreciable items of property with similar useful lives, if: You account for each one in a separate account, and You use the average useful life to figure depreciation. I need to file my 2010 taxes free However, you cannot deduct losses if you use the average useful life to figure depreciation and they have a wide range of useful lives. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   If you have a large number of depreciable property items and use average useful lives to figure depreciation, you cannot deduct the losses upon normal retirements from these accounts. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Abandoned property. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   If you physically abandon property, you can deduct as a loss the adjusted basis of the property at the time of its abandonment. I need to file my 2010 taxes free However, your intent must be to discard the property so that you will not use it again or retrieve it for sale, exchange, or other disposition. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Basis of property retired. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   The basis for figuring gain or loss on the retirement of property is its adjusted basis at the time of retirement, as determined in the following discussions. I need to file my 2010 taxes free Single item accounts. I need to file my 2010 taxes free   If an item of property is accounted for in a single item account, the adjusted basis is the basis you would use to figure gain or loss for a sale or exchange of the property. I need to file my 2010 taxes free This is generally the cost or other basis of the item of property less depreciation. I need to file my 2010 taxes free See Publication 551.
