The 1040x Tax Forms

1040x tax forms Internal Revenue Bulletin:  2013-12  March 18, 2013  Rev. 1040x tax forms Proc. 1040x tax forms 2013-21 Table of Contents SECTION 1. 1040x tax forms PURPOSE SECTION 2. 1040x tax forms BACKGROUND SECTION 3. 1040x tax forms SCOPE SECTION 4. 1040x tax forms APPLICATION. 1040x tax forms 01 Limitations on Depreciation Deductions for Certain Automobiles. 1040x tax forms . 1040x tax forms 02 Inclusions in Income of Lessees of Passenger Automobiles. 1040x tax forms SECTION 5. 1040x tax forms EFFECTIVE DATE SECTION 6. 1040x tax forms DRAFTING INFORMATION SECTION 1. 1040x tax forms 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 2013, 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 2013, including a separate table of inclusion amounts for lessees of trucks and vans. 1040x tax forms 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. 1040x tax forms SECTION 2. 1040x tax forms BACKGROUND . 1040x tax forms 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. 1040x tax forms 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. 1040x tax forms 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. 1040x tax forms This change reflects the higher rate of price inflation for trucks and vans since 1988. 1040x tax forms . 1040x tax forms 02 Section 331(a) of the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, Pub. 1040x tax forms L. 1040x tax forms No. 1040x tax forms 112-240, 126 Stat. 1040x tax forms 2313 (Jan. 1040x tax forms 2, 2013) (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, 2014, 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, 2014. 1040x tax forms 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. 1040x tax forms . 1040x tax forms 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). 1040x tax forms 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. 1040x tax forms 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, 2012, that is round 3 extension property (as defined in § 168(k)(4)(J)(iv)). 1040x tax forms Accordingly, this revenue procedure provides tables for passenger automobiles for which the § 168(k) additional first year depreciation deduction applies. 1040x tax forms 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 2013 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. 1040x tax forms . 1040x tax forms 04 Section 280F(c) requires a reduction in the deduction allowed to the lessee of a leased passenger automobile. 1040x tax forms The reduction must be substantially equivalent to the limitations on the depreciation deductions imposed on owners of passenger automobiles. 1040x tax forms Under § 1. 1040x tax forms 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. 1040x tax forms One table applies to lessees of trucks and vans and another table applies to all other passenger automobiles. 1040x tax forms Each table shows inclusion amounts for a range of fair market values for each taxable year after the passenger automobile is first leased. 1040x tax forms SECTION 3. 1040x tax forms SCOPE . 1040x tax forms 01 The limitations on depreciation deductions in section 4. 1040x tax forms 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 2013, and continue to apply for each taxable year that the passenger automobile remains in service. 1040x tax forms . 1040x tax forms 02 The tables in section 4. 1040x tax forms 02 of this revenue procedure apply to leased passenger automobiles for which the lease term begins during calendar year 2013. 1040x tax forms 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. 1040x tax forms See Rev. 1040x tax forms Proc. 1040x tax forms 2008-22, 2008-1 C.

SECTION 4. 1040x tax forms APPLICATION . 1040x tax forms 01 Limitations on Depreciation Deductions for Certain Automobiles. 1040x tax forms (1) Amount of the inflation adjustment. 1040x tax forms (a) Passenger automobiles (other than trucks or vans). 1040x tax forms 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. 1040x tax forms 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. 1040x tax forms The new car component of the CPI was 115. 1040x tax forms 2 for October 1987 and 143. 1040x tax forms 787 for October 2012. 1040x tax forms The October 2012 index exceeded the October 1987 index by 28. 1040x tax forms 587. 1040x tax forms Therefore, the automobile price inflation adjustment for 2013 for passenger automobiles (other than trucks and vans) is 24. 1040x tax forms 8 percent (28. 1040x tax forms 587/115. 1040x tax forms 2 x 100%). 1040x tax forms The dollar limitations in § 280F(a) are multiplied by a factor of 0. 1040x tax forms 248, 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 2013. 1040x tax forms This adjustment applies to all passenger automobiles (other than trucks and vans) that are first placed in service in calendar year 2013. 1040x tax forms (b) Trucks and vans. 1040x tax forms To determine the dollar limitations for trucks and vans first placed in service during calendar year 2013, the Service uses the new truck component of the CPI instead of the new car component. 1040x tax forms The new truck component of the CPI was 112. 1040x tax forms 4 for October 1987 and 149. 1040x tax forms 386 for October 2012. 1040x tax forms The October 2012 index exceeded the October 1987 index by 36. 1040x tax forms 986. 1040x tax forms Therefore, the automobile price inflation adjustment for 2013 for trucks and vans is 32. 1040x tax forms 9 percent (36. 1040x tax forms 986/112. 1040x tax forms 4 x 100%). 1040x tax forms The dollar limitations in § 280F(a) are multiplied by a factor of 0. 1040x tax forms 329, 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. 1040x tax forms This adjustment applies to all trucks and vans that are first placed in service in calendar year 2013. 1040x tax forms (2) Amount of the limitation. 1040x tax forms 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 2013. 1040x tax forms 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 2013 for which the § 168(k) additional first year depreciation deduction applies. 1040x tax forms 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 2013
