Military Reserve Tax Deduction

Military reserve tax deduction Internal Revenue Bulletin:  2011-12  March 21, 2011  Rev. Military reserve tax deduction Proc. Military reserve tax deduction 2011-21 Table of Contents SECTION 1. Military reserve tax deduction PURPOSE SECTION 2. Military reserve tax deduction BACKGROUND SECTION 3. Military reserve tax deduction SCOPE SECTION 4. Military reserve tax deduction APPLICATION SECTION 5. Military reserve tax deduction EFFECTIVE DATE SECTION 6. Military reserve tax deduction EFFECT ON OTHER DOCUMENTS SECTION 7. Military reserve tax deduction DRAFTING INFORMATION SECTION 1. Military reserve tax deduction 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 2011, including separate tables of limitations on depreciation deductions for trucks and vans; (2) the amounts that must be included in income by lessees of passenger automobiles first leased by the taxpayer during calendar year 2011, including a separate table of inclusion amounts for lessees of trucks and vans; and (3) revised tables of depreciation limitations and lessee inclusion amounts for passenger automobiles that were first placed in service or first leased by the taxpayer, respectively, during 2010 and to which the 50 percent additional first year depreciation deduction under § 168(k)(1)(A) of the Internal Revenue Code or the 100 percent additional first year depreciation deduction under § 168(k)(5) applies. Military reserve tax deduction The tables detailing these depreciation limitations and lessee inclusion amounts reflect the automobile price inflation adjustments required by § 280F(d)(7). Military reserve tax deduction SECTION 2. Military reserve tax deduction BACKGROUND . Military reserve tax deduction 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. Military reserve tax deduction 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. Military reserve tax deduction 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. Military reserve tax deduction This change reflects the higher rate of price inflation for trucks and vans since 1988. Military reserve tax deduction . Military reserve tax deduction 02 Section 2022(a) of the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010, Pub. Military reserve tax deduction L. Military reserve tax deduction No. Military reserve tax deduction 111-240, 124 Stat. Military reserve tax deduction 2504 (September 27, 2010), extended the 50 percent additional first year depreciation deduction under § 168(k) to qualified property (as defined in § 168(k)(2)) acquired by the taxpayer after December 31, 2007, and before January 1, 2011, 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, 2011. Military reserve tax deduction Section 401(a) of the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010, Pub. Military reserve tax deduction L. Military reserve tax deduction No. Military reserve tax deduction 111-312, 124 Stat. Military reserve tax deduction 3296 (Dec. Military reserve tax deduction 17, 2010) (the “Act”) further 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. Military reserve tax deduction Section 401(b) of the Act further amended § 168(k) by adding § 168(k)(5). Military reserve tax deduction It allows a 100 percent additional first year depreciation deduction for qualified property acquired by a taxpayer after September 8, 2010, and before January 1, 2012, if the taxpayer places the property in service generally before January 1, 2012. Military reserve tax deduction 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. Military reserve tax deduction . Military reserve tax deduction 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). Military reserve tax deduction 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. Military reserve tax deduction 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). Military reserve tax deduction Accordingly, this revenue procedure provides tables for passenger automobiles for which the § 168(k) additional first year depreciation deduction applies. Military reserve tax deduction 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 2011 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. Military reserve tax deduction . Military reserve tax deduction 04 Section 280F(c) requires a reduction in the deduction allowed to the lessee of a leased passenger automobile. Military reserve tax deduction The reduction must be substantially equivalent to the limitations on the depreciation deductions imposed on owners of passenger automobiles. Military reserve tax deduction Under § 1. Military reserve tax deduction 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. Military reserve tax deduction One table applies to lessees of trucks and vans and another table applies to all other passenger automobiles. Military reserve tax deduction Each table shows inclusion amounts for a range of fair market values for each taxable year after the passenger automobile is first leased. Military reserve tax deduction SECTION 3. Military reserve tax deduction SCOPE . Military reserve tax deduction 01 The limitations on depreciation deductions in section 4. Military reserve tax deduction 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 2011, and continue to apply for each taxable year that the passenger automobile remains in service. Military reserve tax deduction . Military reserve tax deduction 02 The tables in section 4. Military reserve tax deduction 02 of this revenue procedure apply to leased passenger automobiles for which the lease term begins during calendar year 2011. Military reserve tax deduction 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.

Military reserve tax deduction 03 of this revenue procedure, for passenger automobiles first leased during calendar year 2010. Military reserve tax deduction SECTION 4. Military reserve tax deduction APPLICATION . Military reserve tax deduction 01 Limitations on Depreciation Deductions for Certain Automobiles. Military reserve tax deduction (1) Amount of the inflation adjustment. Military reserve tax deduction (a) Passenger automobiles (other than trucks or vans). Military reserve tax deduction 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. Military reserve tax deduction 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. Military reserve tax deduction The new car component of the CPI was 115. Military reserve tax deduction 2 for October 1987 and 137. Military reserve tax deduction 880 for October 2010. Military reserve tax deduction The October 2010 index exceeded the October 1987 index by 22. Military reserve tax deduction 680. Military reserve tax deduction Therefore, the automobile price inflation adjustment for 2011 for passenger automobiles (other than trucks and vans) is 19. Military reserve tax deduction 69 percent (22. Military reserve tax deduction 680/115. Military reserve tax deduction 2 x 100%). Military reserve tax deduction The dollar limitations in § 280F(a) are multiplied by a factor of 0. Military reserve tax deduction 1969, 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 2011. Military reserve tax deduction This adjustment applies to all passenger automobiles (other than trucks and vans) that are first placed in service in calendar year 2011. Military reserve tax deduction (b) Trucks and vans. Military reserve tax deduction To determine the dollar limitations for trucks and vans first placed in service during calendar year 2011, the Service uses the new truck component of the CPI instead of the new car component. Military reserve tax deduction The new truck component of the CPI was 112. Military reserve tax deduction 4 for October 1987 and 142. Military reserve tax deduction 556 for October 2010. Military reserve tax deduction The October 2010 index exceeded the October 1987 index by 30. Military reserve tax deduction 156. Military reserve tax deduction Therefore, the automobile price inflation adjustment for 2011 for trucks and vans is 26. Military reserve tax deduction 83 percent (30. Military reserve tax deduction 156/112. Military reserve tax deduction 4 x 100%). Military reserve tax deduction The dollar limitations in § 280F(a) are multiplied by a factor of 0. Military reserve tax deduction 2683, 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. Military reserve tax deduction This adjustment applies to all trucks and vans that are first placed in service in calendar year 2011. Military reserve tax deduction (2) Amount of the limitation. Military reserve tax deduction 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 2011. Military reserve tax deduction 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 2011 for which the § 168(k) additional first year depreciation deduction applies. Military reserve tax deduction 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 2011 for which the § 168(k) additional first year depreciation deduction does not apply. Military reserve tax deduction The Service intends to issue additional guidance addressing the interaction between the 100 percent additional first year depreciation deduction and § 280F(a) for the taxable years subsequent to the first taxable year.

Military reserve tax deduction Short-term and long-term losses. Military reserve tax deduction   When you carry over a loss, it retains its original character as either long term or short term. Military reserve tax deduction A short-term loss you carry over to the next tax year is added to short-term losses occurring in that year. Military reserve tax deduction A long-term loss you carry over to the next tax year is added to long-term losses occurring in that year. Military reserve tax deduction A long-term capital loss you carry over to the next year reduces that year's long-term gains before its short-term gains. Military reserve tax deduction   If you have both short-term and long-term losses, your short-term losses are used first against your allowable capital loss deduction. Military reserve tax deduction If, after using your short-term losses, you have not reached the limit on the capital loss deduction, use your long-term losses until you reach the limit.

Military reserve tax deduction   If you and your spouse once filed separate returns and are now filing a joint return, combine your separate capital loss carryovers. Military reserve tax deduction However, if you and your spouse once filed jointly and are now filing separately, any capital loss carryover from the joint return can be deducted only on the return of the spouse who actually had the loss. Military reserve tax deduction Death of taxpayer. Military reserve tax deduction   Capital losses cannot be carried over after a taxpayer's death. Military reserve tax deduction They are deductible only on the final income tax return filed on the decedent's behalf.

Military reserve tax deduction Even if the loss is greater than the limit, the decedent's estate cannot deduct the difference or carry it over to following years. Military reserve tax deduction Corporations. Military reserve tax deduction   A corporation can deduct capital losses only up to the amount of its capital gains. Military reserve tax deduction In other words, if a corporation has a net capital loss, it cannot be deducted in the current tax year.

Military reserve tax deduction For more information, see Publication 542. Military reserve tax deduction Capital Gains Tax Rates The tax rates that apply to a net capital gain are generally lower than the tax rates that apply to other income. Military reserve tax deduction These lower rates are called the maximum capital gains rates. Military reserve tax deduction The term “net capital gain” means the amount by which your net long-term capital gain for the year is more than your net short-term capital loss. Military reserve tax deduction For 2013, the maximum tax rates for individuals are 0%, 15%, 20%, 25%, and 28%.
