Free file SCOPE SECTION 4. Free file APPLICATION SECTION 5. Free file EFFECTIVE DATE SECTION 6. Free file EFFECT ON OTHER DOCUMENTS SECTION 7. Free file DRAFTING INFORMATION SECTION 1. Free file 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. Free file The tables detailing these depreciation limitations and lessee inclusion amounts reflect the automobile price inflation adjustments required by § 280F(d)(7). Free file SECTION 2. Free file BACKGROUND . Free file 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. Free file 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. Free file 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. Free file This change reflects the higher rate of price inflation for trucks and vans since 1988. Free file . Free file 02 Section 2022(a) of the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010, Pub. Free file L. Free file No. Free file 111-240, 124 Stat. Free file 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. Free file Section 401(a) of the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010, Pub. Free file L. Free file No. Free file 111-312, 124 Stat. Free file 3296 (Dec. Free file 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. Free file Section 401(b) of the Act further amended § 168(k) by adding § 168(k)(5). Free file 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. Free file 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. Free file . Free file 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). Free file 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. Free file 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). Free file Accordingly, this revenue procedure provides tables for passenger automobiles for which the § 168(k) additional first year depreciation deduction applies. Free file 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. Free file . Free file 04 Section 280F(c) requires a reduction in the deduction allowed to the lessee of a leased passenger automobile. Free file The reduction must be substantially equivalent to the limitations on the depreciation deductions imposed on owners of passenger automobiles. Free file Under § 1. Free file 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. Free file One table applies to lessees of trucks and vans and another table applies to all other passenger automobiles. Free file Each table shows inclusion amounts for a range of fair market values for each taxable year after the passenger automobile is first leased. Free file SECTION 3. Free file SCOPE . Free file 01 The limitations on depreciation deductions in section 4. Free file 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. Free file . Free file 02 The tables in section 4. Free file 02 of this revenue procedure apply to leased passenger automobiles for which the lease term begins during calendar year 2011. Free file 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. Free file See Rev.

Free file APPLICATION . Free file 01 Limitations on Depreciation Deductions for Certain Automobiles. Free file (1) Amount of the inflation adjustment. Free file (a) Passenger automobiles (other than trucks or vans). Free file 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. Free file 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. Free file The new car component of the CPI was 115. Free file 2 for October 1987 and 137. Free file 880 for October 2010. Free file The October 2010 index exceeded the October 1987 index by 22. Free file 680. Free file Therefore, the automobile price inflation adjustment for 2011 for passenger automobiles (other than trucks and vans) is 19. Free file 69 percent (22. Free file 680/115. Free file 2 x 100%). Free file The dollar limitations in § 280F(a) are multiplied by a factor of 0. Free file 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. Free file This adjustment applies to all passenger automobiles (other than trucks and vans) that are first placed in service in calendar year 2011. Free file (b) Trucks and vans. Free file 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. Free file The new truck component of the CPI was 112. Free file 4 for October 1987 and 142. Free file 556 for October 2010. Free file The October 2010 index exceeded the October 1987 index by 30. Free file 156. Free file Therefore, the automobile price inflation adjustment for 2011 for trucks and vans is 26. Free file 83 percent (30. Free file 156/112. Free file 4 x 100%). Free file The dollar limitations in § 280F(a) are multiplied by a factor of 0. Free file 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. Free file This adjustment applies to all trucks and vans that are first placed in service in calendar year 2011. Free file (2) Amount of the limitation. Free file 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. Free file 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. Free file 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. Free file 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.
