H&r block military key code What Property Can Be Depreciated? You can depreciate most types of tangible property (except land), such as buildings, machinery, vehicles, furniture, and equipment. H&r block military key code You also can depreciate certain intangible property, such as patents, copyrights, and computer software. H&r block military key code To be depreciable, the property must meet all the following requirements. H&r block military key code It must be property you own. H&r block military key code It must be used in your business or income-producing activity. H&r block military key code It must have a determinable useful life. H&r block military key code It must be expected to last more than one year. H&r block military key code The following discussions provide information about these requirements. H&r block military key code Property You Own To claim depreciation, you usually must be the owner of the property. H&r block military key code You are considered as owning property even if it is subject to a debt. H&r block military key code Example 1. H&r block military key code You made a down payment to purchase rental property and assumed the previous owner's mortgage. H&r block military key code You own the property and you can depreciate it. H&r block military key code Example 2. H&r block military key code You bought a new van that you will use only for your courier business. H&r block military key code You will be making payments on the van over the next 5 years. H&r block military key code You own the van and you can depreciate it. H&r block military key code Leased property. H&r block military key code   You can depreciate leased property only if you retain the incidents of ownership in the property (explained below). H&r block military key code This means you bear the burden of exhaustion of the capital investment in the property. H&r block military key code Therefore, if you lease property from someone to use in your trade or business or for the production of income, you generally cannot depreciate its cost because you do not retain the incidents of ownership. H&r block military key code You can, however, depreciate any capital improvements you make to the property. H&r block military key code See How Do You Treat Repairs and Improvements later in this chapter and Additions and Improvements under Which Recovery Period Applies in chapter 4. H&r block military key code   If you lease property to someone, you generally can depreciate its cost even if the lessee (the person leasing from you) has agreed to preserve, replace, renew, and maintain the property. H&r block military key code However, if the lease provides that the lessee is to maintain the property and return to you the same property or its equivalent in value at the expiration of the lease in as good condition and value as when leased, you cannot depreciate the cost of the property. H&r block military key code Incidents of ownership. H&r block military key code   Incidents of ownership in property include the following. H&r block military key code The legal title to the property. H&r block military key code The legal obligation to pay for the property. H&r block military key code The responsibility to pay maintenance and operating expenses. H&r block military key code The duty to pay any taxes on the property. H&r block military key code The risk of loss if the property is destroyed, condemned, or diminished in value through obsolescence or exhaustion. H&r block military key code Life tenant. H&r block military key code   Generally, if you hold business or investment property as a life tenant, you can depreciate it as if you were the absolute owner of the property. H&r block military key code However, see Certain term interests in property under Excepted Property, later. H&r block military key code Cooperative apartments. H&r block military key code   If you are a tenant-stockholder in a cooperative housing corporation and use your cooperative apartment in your business or for the production of income, you can depreciate your stock in the corporation, even though the corporation owns the apartment. H&r block military key code   Figure your depreciation deduction as follows. H&r block military key code Figure the depreciation for all the depreciable real property owned by the corporation in which you have a proprietary lease or right of tenancy. H&r block military key code If you bought your cooperative stock after its first offering, figure the depreciable basis of this property as follows. H&r block military key code Multiply your cost per share by the total number of outstanding shares, including any shares held by the corporation. H&r block military key code Add to the amount figured in (a) any mortgage debt on the property on the date you bought the stock. H&r block military key code Subtract from the amount figured in (b) any mortgage debt that is not for the depreciable real property, such as the part for the land. H&r block military key code Subtract from the amount figured in (1) any depreciation for space owned by the corporation that can be rented but cannot be lived in by tenant-stockholders. H&r block military key code Divide the number of your shares of stock by the total number of outstanding shares, including any shares held by the corporation. H&r block military key code Multiply the result of (2) by the percentage you figured in (3). H&r block military key code This is your depreciation on the stock. H&r block military key code   Your depreciation deduction for the year cannot be more than the part of your adjusted basis in the stock of the corporation that is allocable to your business or income-producing property. H&r block military key code You must also reduce your depreciation deduction if only a portion of the property is used in a business or for the production of income. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code You figure your share of the cooperative housing corporation's depreciation to be $30,000. H&r block military key code Your adjusted basis in the stock of the corporation is $50,000. H&r block military key code You use one half of your apartment solely for business purposes. H&r block military key code Your depreciation deduction for the stock for the year cannot be more than $25,000 (½ of $50,000). H&r block military key code Change to business use. H&r block military key code   If you change your cooperative apartment to business use, figure your allowable depreciation as explained earlier. H&r block military key code The basis of all the depreciable real property owned by the cooperative housing corporation is the smaller of the following amounts. H&r block military key code The fair market value of the property on the date you change your apartment to business use. H&r block military key code This is considered to be the same as the corporation's adjusted basis minus straight line depreciation, unless this value is unrealistic. H&r block military key code The corporation's adjusted basis in the property on that date. H&r block military key code Do not subtract depreciation when figuring the corporation's adjusted basis. H&r block military key code   If you bought the stock after its first offering, the corporation's adjusted basis in the property is the amount figured in (1), above. H&r block military key code The fair market value of the property is considered to be the same as the corporation's adjusted basis figured in this way minus straight line depreciation, unless the value is unrealistic. H&r block military key code   For a discussion of fair market value and adjusted basis, see Publication 551. H&r block military key code Property Used in Your Business or Income-Producing Activity To claim depreciation on property, you must use it in your business or income-producing activity. H&r block military key code If you use property to produce income (investment use), the income must be taxable. H&r block military key code You cannot depreciate property that you use solely for personal activities. H&r block military key code Partial business or investment use. H&r block military key code   If you use property for business or investment purposes and for personal purposes, you can deduct depreciation based only on the business or investment use. H&r block military key code For example, you cannot deduct depreciation on a car used only for commuting, personal shopping trips, family vacations, driving children to and from school, or similar activities. H&r block military key code    You must keep records showing the business, investment, and personal use of your property. H&r block military key code For more information on the records you must keep for listed property, such as a car, see What Records Must Be Kept in chapter 5. H&r block military key code    Although you can combine business and investment use of property when figuring depreciation deductions, do not treat investment use as qualified business use when determining whether the business-use requirement for listed property is met. H&r block military key code For information about qualified business use of listed property, see What Is the Business-Use Requirement in chapter 5. H&r block military key code Office in the home. H&r block military key code   If you use part of your home as an office, you may be able to deduct depreciation on that part based on its business use. H&r block military key code For information about depreciating your home office, see Publication 587. H&r block military key code Inventory. H&r block military key code   You cannot depreciate inventory because it is not held for use in your business. H&r block military key code Inventory is any property you hold primarily for sale to customers in the ordinary course of your business. H&r block military key code   If you are a rent-to-own dealer, you may be able to treat certain property held in your business as depreciable property rather than as inventory. H&r block military key code See Rent-to-own dealer under Which Property Class Applies Under GDS in chapter 4. H&r block military key code   In some cases, it is not clear whether property is held for sale (inventory) or for use in your business. H&r block military key code If it is unclear, examine carefully all the facts in the operation of the particular business. H&r block military key code The following example shows how a careful examination of the facts in two similar situations results in different conclusions. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code Maple Corporation is in the business of leasing cars. H&r block military key code At the end of their useful lives, when the cars are no longer profitable to lease, Maple sells them. H&r block military key code Maple does not have a showroom, used car lot, or individuals to sell the cars. H&r block military key code Instead, it sells them through wholesalers or by similar arrangements in which a dealer's profit is not intended or considered. H&r block military key code Maple can depreciate the leased cars because the cars are not held primarily for sale to customers in the ordinary course of business, but are leased. H&r block military key code If Maple buys cars at wholesale prices, leases them for a short time, and then sells them at retail prices or in sales in which a dealer's profit is intended, the cars are treated as inventory and are not depreciable property. H&r block military key code In this situation, the cars are held primarily for sale to customers in the ordinary course of business. H&r block military key code Containers. H&r block military key code   Generally, containers for the products you sell are part of inventory and you cannot depreciate them. H&r block military key code However, you can depreciate containers used to ship your products if they have a life longer than one year and meet the following requirements. H&r block military key code They qualify as property used in your business. H&r block military key code Title to the containers does not pass to the buyer. H&r block military key code   To determine if these requirements are met, consider the following questions. H&r block military key code Does your sales contract, sales invoice, or other type of order acknowledgment indicate whether you have retained title? Does your invoice treat the containers as separate items? Do any of your records state your basis in the containers? Property Having a Determinable Useful Life To be depreciable, your property must have a determinable useful life. H&r block military key code This means that it must be something that wears out, decays, gets used up, becomes obsolete, or loses its value from natural causes. H&r block military key code Property Lasting More Than One Year To be depreciable, property must have a useful life that extends substantially beyond the year you place it in service. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code You maintain a library for use in your profession. H&r block military key code You can depreciate it. H&r block military key code However, if you buy technical books, journals, or information services for use in your business that have a useful life of one year or less, you cannot depreciate them. H&r block military key code Instead, you deduct their cost as a business expense. H&r block military key code What Property Cannot Be Depreciated? Certain property cannot be depreciated. H&r block military key code This includes land and certain excepted property. H&r block military key code Land You cannot depreciate the cost of land because land does not wear out, become obsolete, or get used up. H&r block military key code The cost of land generally includes the cost of clearing, grading, planting, and landscaping. H&r block military key code Although you cannot depreciate land, you can depreciate certain land preparation costs, such as landscaping costs, incurred in preparing land for business use. H&r block military key code These costs must be so closely associated with other depreciable property that you can determine a life for them along with the life of the associated property. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code You constructed a new building for use in your business and paid for grading, clearing, seeding, and planting bushes and trees. H&r block military key code Some of the bushes and trees were planted right next to the building, while others were planted around the outer border of the lot. H&r block military key code If you replace the building, you would have to destroy the bushes and trees right next to it. H&r block military key code These bushes and trees are closely associated with the building, so they have a determinable useful life. H&r block military key code Therefore, you can depreciate them. H&r block military key code Add your other land preparation costs to the basis of your land because they have no determinable life and you cannot depreciate them. H&r block military key code Excepted Property Even if the requirements explained in the preceding discussions are met, you cannot depreciate the following property. H&r block military key code Property placed in service and disposed of in the same year. H&r block military key code Determining when property is placed in service is explained later. H&r block military key code Equipment used to build capital improvements. H&r block military key code You must add otherwise allowable depreciation on the equipment during the period of construction to the basis of your improvements. H&r block military key code See Uniform Capitalization Rules in Publication 551. H&r block military key code Section 197 intangibles. H&r block military key code You must amortize these costs. H&r block military key code Section 197 intangibles are discussed in detail in Chapter 8 of Publication 535. H&r block military key code Intangible property, such as certain computer software, that is not section 197 intangible property, can be depreciated if it meets certain requirements. H&r block military key code See Intangible Property , later. H&r block military key code Certain term interests. H&r block military key code Certain term interests in property. H&r block military key code   You cannot depreciate a term interest in property created or acquired after July 27, 1989, for any period during which the remainder interest is held, directly or indirectly, by a person related to you. H&r block military key code A term interest in property means a life interest in property, an interest in property for a term of years, or an income interest in a trust. H&r block military key code Related persons. H&r block military key code   For a description of related persons, see Related Persons, later. H&r block military key code For this purpose, however, treat as related persons only the relationships listed in items (1) through (10) of that discussion and substitute “50%” for “10%” each place it appears. H&r block military key code Basis adjustments. H&r block military key code   If you would be allowed a depreciation deduction for a term interest in property except that the holder of the remainder interest is related to you, you generally must reduce your basis in the term interest by any depreciation or amortization not allowed. H&r block military key code   If you hold the remainder interest, you generally must increase your basis in that interest by the depreciation not allowed to the term interest holder. H&r block military key code However, do not increase your basis for depreciation not allowed for periods during which either of the following situations applies. H&r block military key code The term interest is held by an organization exempt from tax. H&r block military key code The term interest is held by a nonresident alien individual or foreign corporation, and the income from the term interest is not effectively connected with the conduct of a trade or business in the United States. H&r block military key code Exceptions. H&r block military key code   The above rules do not apply to the holder of a term interest in property acquired by gift, bequest, or inheritance. H&r block military key code They also do not apply to the holder of dividend rights that were separated from any stripped preferred stock if the rights were purchased after April 30, 1993, or to a person whose basis in the stock is determined by reference to the basis in the hands of the purchaser. H&r block military key code When Does Depreciation Begin and End? You begin to depreciate your property when you place it in service for use in your trade or business or for the production of income. H&r block military key code You stop depreciating property either when you have fully recovered your cost or other basis or when you retire it from service, whichever happens first. H&r block military key code Placed in Service You place property in service when it is ready and available for a specific use, whether in a business activity, an income-producing activity, a tax-exempt activity, or a personal activity. H&r block military key code Even if you are not using the property, it is in service when it is ready and available for its specific use. H&r block military key code Example 1. H&r block military key code Donald Steep bought a machine for his business. H&r block military key code The machine was delivered last year. H&r block military key code However, it was not installed and operational until this year. H&r block military key code It is considered placed in service this year. H&r block military key code If the machine had been ready and available for use when it was delivered, it would be considered placed in service last year even if it was not actually used until this year. H&r block military key code Example 2. H&r block military key code On April 6, Sue Thorn bought a house to use as residential rental property. H&r block military key code She made several repairs and had it ready for rent on July 5. H&r block military key code At that time, she began to advertise it for rent in the local newspaper. H&r block military key code The house is considered placed in service in July when it was ready and available for rent. H&r block military key code She can begin to depreciate it in July. H&r block military key code Example 3. H&r block military key code James Elm is a building contractor who specializes in constructing office buildings. H&r block military key code He bought a truck last year that had to be modified to lift materials to second-story levels. H&r block military key code The installation of the lifting equipment was completed and James accepted delivery of the modified truck on January 10 of this year. H&r block military key code The truck was placed in service on January 10, the date it was ready and available to perform the function for which it was bought. H&r block military key code Conversion to business use. H&r block military key code   If you place property in service in a personal activity, you cannot claim depreciation. H&r block military key code However, if you change the property's use to use in a business or income-producing activity, then you can begin to depreciate it at the time of the change. H&r block military key code You place the property in service in the business or income-producing activity on the date of the change. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code You bought a home and used it as your personal home several years before you converted it to rental property. H&r block military key code Although its specific use was personal and no depreciation was allowable, you placed the home in service when you began using it as your home. H&r block military key code You can begin to claim depreciation in the year you converted it to rental property because its use changed to an income-producing use at that time. H&r block military key code Idle Property Continue to claim a deduction for depreciation on property used in your business or for the production of income even if it is temporarily idle (not in use). H&r block military key code For example, if you stop using a machine because there is a temporary lack of a market for a product made with that machine, continue to deduct depreciation on the machine. H&r block military key code Cost or Other Basis Fully Recovered You stop depreciating property when you have fully recovered your cost or other basis. H&r block military key code You recover your basis when your section 179 and allowed or allowable depreciation deductions equal your cost or investment in the property. H&r block military key code See What Is the Basis of Your Depreciable Property , later. H&r block military key code Retired From Service You stop depreciating property when you retire it from service, even if you have not fully recovered its cost or other basis. H&r block military key code You retire property from service when you permanently withdraw it from use in a trade or business or from use in the production of income because of any of the following events. H&r block military key code You sell or exchange the property. H&r block military key code You convert the property to personal use. H&r block military key code You abandon the property. H&r block military key code You transfer the property to a supplies or scrap account. H&r block military key code The property is destroyed. H&r block military key code If you included the property in a general asset account, see How Do You Use General Asset Accounts in chapter 4 for the rules that apply when you dispose of that property. H&r block military key code What Method Can You Use To Depreciate Your Property? You must use the Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS) to depreciate most property. H&r block military key code MACRS is discussed in chapter 4. H&r block military key code You cannot use MACRS to depreciate the following property. H&r block military key code Property you placed in service before 1987. H&r block military key code Certain property owned or used in 1986. H&r block military key code Intangible property. H&r block military key code Films, video tapes, and recordings. H&r block military key code Certain corporate or partnership property acquired in a nontaxable transfer. H&r block military key code Property you elected to exclude from MACRS. H&r block military key code The following discussions describe the property listed above and explain what depreciation method should be used. H&r block military key code Property You Placed in Service Before 1987 You cannot use MACRS for property you placed in service before 1987 (except property you placed in service after July 31, 1986, if MACRS was elected). H&r block military key code Property placed in service before 1987 must be depreciated under the methods discussed in Publication 534. H&r block military key code For a discussion of when property is placed in service, see When Does Depreciation Begin and End , earlier. H&r block military key code Use of real property changed. H&r block military key code   You generally must use MACRS to depreciate real property that you acquired for personal use before 1987 and changed to business or income-producing use after 1986. H&r block military key code Improvements made after 1986. H&r block military key code   You must treat an improvement made after 1986 to property you placed in service before 1987 as separate depreciable property. H&r block military key code Therefore, you can depreciate that improvement as separate property under MACRS if it is the type of property that otherwise qualifies for MACRS depreciation. H&r block military key code For more information about improvements, see How Do You Treat Repairs and Improvements , later and Additions and Improvements under Which Recovery Period Applies in chapter 4. H&r block military key code Property Owned or Used in 1986 You may not be able to use MACRS for property you acquired and placed in service after 1986 if any of the situations described below apply. H&r block military key code If you cannot use MACRS, the property must be depreciated under the methods discussed in Publication 534. H&r block military key code For the following discussions, do not treat property as owned before you placed it in service. H&r block military key code If you owned property in 1986 but did not place it in service until 1987, you do not treat it as owned in 1986. H&r block military key code Personal property. H&r block military key code   You cannot use MACRS for personal property (section 1245 property) in any of the following situations. H&r block military key code You or someone related to you owned or used the property in 1986. H&r block military key code You acquired the property from a person who owned it in 1986 and as part of the transaction the user of the property did not change. H&r block military key code You lease the property to a person (or someone related to this person) who owned or used the property in 1986. H&r block military key code You acquired the property in a transaction in which: The user of the property did not change, and The property was not MACRS property in the hands of the person from whom you acquired it because of (2) or (3) above. H&r block military key code Real property. H&r block military key code   You generally cannot use MACRS for real property (section 1250 property) in any of the following situations. H&r block military key code You or someone related to you owned the property in 1986. H&r block military key code You lease the property to a person who owned the property in 1986 (or someone related to that person). H&r block military key code You acquired the property in a like-kind exchange, involuntary conversion, or repossession of property you or someone related to you owned in 1986. H&r block military key code MACRS applies only to that part of your basis in the acquired property that represents cash paid or unlike property given up. H&r block military key code It does not apply to the carried-over part of the basis. H&r block military key code Exceptions. H&r block military key code   The rules above do not apply to the following. H&r block military key code Residential rental property or nonresidential real property. H&r block military key code Any property if, in the first tax year it is placed in service, the deduction under the Accelerated Cost Recovery System (ACRS) is more than the deduction under MACRS using the half-year convention. H&r block military key code For information on how to figure depreciation under ACRS, see Publication 534. H&r block military key code Property that was MACRS property in the hands of the person from whom you acquired it because of (2) above. H&r block military key code Related persons. H&r block military key code   For this purpose, the following are related persons. H&r block military key code An individual and a member of his or her family, including only a spouse, child, parent, brother, sister, half-brother, half-sister, ancestor, and lineal descendant. H&r block military key code A corporation and an individual who directly or indirectly owns more than 10% of the value of the outstanding stock of that corporation. H&r block military key code Two corporations that are members of the same controlled group. H&r block military key code A trust fiduciary and a corporation if more than 10% of the value of the outstanding stock is directly or indirectly owned by or for the trust or grantor of the trust. H&r block military key code The grantor and fiduciary, and the fiduciary and beneficiary, of any trust. H&r block military key code The fiduciaries of two different trusts, and the fiduciaries and beneficiaries of two different trusts, if the same person is the grantor of both trusts. H&r block military key code A tax-exempt educational or charitable organization and any person (or, if that person is an individual, a member of that person's family) who directly or indirectly controls the organization. H&r block military key code Two S corporations, and an S corporation and a regular corporation, if the same persons own more than 10% of the value of the outstanding stock of each corporation. H&r block military key code A corporation and a partnership if the same persons own both of the following. H&r block military key code More than 10% of the value of the outstanding stock of the corporation. H&r block military key code More than 10% of the capital or profits interest in the partnership. H&r block military key code The executor and beneficiary of any estate. H&r block military key code A partnership and a person who directly or indirectly owns more than 10% of the capital or profits interest in the partnership. H&r block military key code Two partnerships, if the same persons directly or indirectly own more than 10% of the capital or profits interest in each. H&r block military key code The related person and a person who is engaged in trades or businesses under common control. H&r block military key code See section 52(a) and 52(b) of the Internal Revenue Code. H&r block military key code When to determine relationship. H&r block military key code   You must determine whether you are related to another person at the time you acquire the property. H&r block military key code   A partnership acquiring property from a terminating partnership must determine whether it is related to the terminating partnership immediately before the event causing the termination. H&r block military key code For this rule, a terminating partnership is one that sells or exchanges, within 12 months, 50% or more of its total interest in partnership capital or profits. H&r block military key code Constructive ownership of stock or partnership interest. H&r block military key code   To determine whether a person directly or indirectly owns any of the outstanding stock of a corporation or an interest in a partnership, apply the following rules. H&r block military key code Stock or a partnership interest directly or indirectly owned by or for a corporation, partnership, estate, or trust is considered owned proportionately by or for its shareholders, partners, or beneficiaries. H&r block military key code However, for a partnership interest owned by or for a C corporation, this applies only to shareholders who directly or indirectly own 5% or more of the value of the stock of the corporation. H&r block military key code An individual is considered to own the stock or partnership interest directly or indirectly owned by or for the individual's family. H&r block military key code An individual who owns, except by applying rule (2), any stock in a corporation is considered to own the stock directly or indirectly owned by or for the individual's partner. H&r block military key code For purposes of rules (1), (2), or (3), stock or a partnership interest considered to be owned by a person under rule (1) is treated as actually owned by that person. H&r block military key code However, stock or a partnership interest considered to be owned by an individual under rule (2) or (3) is not treated as owned by that individual for reapplying either rule (2) or (3) to make another person considered to be the owner of the same stock or partnership interest. H&r block military key code Intangible Property Generally, if you can depreciate intangible property, you usually use the straight line method of depreciation. H&r block military key code However, you can choose to depreciate certain intangible property under the income forecast method (discussed later). H&r block military key code You cannot depreciate intangible property that is a section 197 intangible or that otherwise does not meet all the requirements discussed earlier under What Property Can Be Depreciated. H&r block military key code Straight Line Method This method lets you deduct the same amount of depreciation each year over the useful life of the property. H&r block military key code To figure your deduction, first determine the adjusted basis, salvage value, and estimated useful life of your property. H&r block military key code Subtract the salvage value, if any, from the adjusted basis. H&r block military key code The balance is the total depreciation you can take over the useful life of the property. H&r block military key code Divide the balance by the number of years in the useful life. H&r block military key code This gives you your yearly depreciation deduction. H&r block military key code 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. H&r block military key code 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. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code In April, Frank bought a patent for $5,100 that is not a section 197 intangible. H&r block military key code He depreciates the patent under the straight line method, using a 17-year useful life and no salvage value. H&r block military key code He divides the $5,100 basis by 17 years to get his $300 yearly depreciation deduction. H&r block military key code He only used the patent for 9 months during the first year, so he multiplies $300 by 9/12 to get his deduction of $225 for the first year. H&r block military key code Next year, Frank can deduct $300 for the full year. H&r block military key code Patents and copyrights. H&r block military key code   If you can depreciate the cost of a patent or copyright, use the straight line method over the useful life. H&r block military key code The useful life of a patent or copyright is the lesser of the life granted to it by the government or the remaining life when you acquire it. H&r block military key code However, if the patent or copyright becomes valueless before the end of its useful life, you can deduct in that year any of its remaining cost or other basis. H&r block military key code Computer software. H&r block military key code   Computer software is generally a section 197 intangible and cannot be depreciated if you acquired it in connection with the acquisition of assets constituting a business or a substantial part of a business. H&r block military key code   However, computer software is not a section 197 intangible and can be depreciated, even if acquired in connection with the acquisition of a business, if it meets all of the following tests. H&r block military key code It is readily available for purchase by the general public. H&r block military key code It is subject to a nonexclusive license. H&r block military key code It has not been substantially modified. H&r block military key code   If the software meets the tests above, it may also qualify for the section 179 deduction and the special depreciation allowance, discussed later. H&r block military key code If you can depreciate the cost of computer software, use the straight line method over a useful life of 36 months. H&r block military key code    Tax-exempt use property subject to a lease. H&r block military key code   The useful life of computer software leased under a lease agreement entered into after March 12, 2004, to a tax-exempt organization, governmental unit, or foreign person or entity (other than a partnership), cannot be less than 125% of the lease term. H&r block military key code Certain created intangibles. H&r block military key code   You can amortize certain intangibles created on or after December 31, 2003, over a 15-year period using the straight line method and no salvage value, even though they have a useful life that cannot be estimated with reasonable accuracy. H&r block military key code For example, amounts paid to acquire memberships or privileges of indefinite duration, such as a trade association membership, are eligible costs. H&r block military key code   The following are not eligible. H&r block military key code Any intangible asset acquired from another person. H&r block military key code Created financial interests. H&r block military key code Any intangible asset that has a useful life that can be estimated with reasonable accuracy. H&r block military key code Any intangible asset that has an amortization period or limited useful life that is specifically prescribed or prohibited by the Code, regulations, or other published IRS guidance. H&r block military key code Any amount paid to facilitate an acquisition of a trade or business, a change in the capital structure of a business entity, and certain other transactions. H&r block military key code   You must also increase the 15-year safe harbor amortization period to a 25-year period for certain intangibles related to benefits arising from the provision, production, or improvement of real property. H&r block military key code For this purpose, real property includes property that will remain attached to the real property for an indefinite period of time, such as roads, bridges, tunnels, pavements, and pollution control facilities. H&r block military key code Income Forecast Method You can choose to use the income forecast method instead of the straight line method to depreciate the following depreciable intangibles. H&r block military key code Motion picture films or video tapes. H&r block military key code Sound recordings. H&r block military key code Copyrights. H&r block military key code Books. H&r block military key code Patents. H&r block military key code Under the income forecast method, each year's depreciation deduction is equal to the cost of the property, multiplied by a fraction. H&r block military key code The numerator of the fraction is the current year's net income from the property, and the denominator is the total income anticipated from the property through the end of the 10th taxable year following the taxable year the property is placed in service. H&r block military key code For more information, see section 167(g) of the Internal Revenue Code. H&r block military key code Films, video tapes, and recordings. H&r block military key code   You cannot use MACRS for motion picture films, video tapes, and sound recordings. H&r block military key code For this purpose, sound recordings are discs, tapes, or other phonorecordings resulting from the fixation of a series of sounds. H&r block military key code You can depreciate this property using either the straight line method or the income forecast method. H&r block military key code Participations and residuals. H&r block military key code   You can include participations and residuals in the adjusted basis of the property for purposes of computing your depreciation deduction under the income forecast method. H&r block military key code The participations and residuals must relate to income to be derived from the property before the end of the 10th taxable year after the property is placed in service. H&r block military key code For this purpose, participations and residuals are defined as costs which by contract vary with the amount of income earned in connection with the property. H&r block military key code   Instead of including these amounts in the adjusted basis of the property, you can deduct the costs in the taxable year that they are paid. H&r block military key code Videocassettes. H&r block military key code   If you are in the business of renting videocassettes, you can depreciate only those videocassettes bought for rental. H&r block military key code If the videocassette has a useful life of one year or less, you can currently deduct the cost as a business expense. H&r block military key code Corporate or Partnership Property Acquired in a Nontaxable Transfer MACRS does not apply to property used before 1987 and transferred after 1986 to a corporation or partnership (except property the transferor placed in service after July 31, 1986, if MACRS was elected) to the extent its basis is carried over from the property's adjusted basis in the transferor's hands. H&r block military key code You must continue to use the same depreciation method as the transferor and figure depreciation as if the transfer had not occurred. H&r block military key code However, if MACRS would otherwise apply, you can use it to depreciate the part of the property's basis that exceeds the carried-over basis. H&r block military key code The nontaxable transfers covered by this rule include the following. H&r block military key code A distribution in complete liquidation of a subsidiary. H&r block military key code A transfer to a corporation controlled by the transferor. H&r block military key code An exchange of property solely for corporate stock or securities in a reorganization. H&r block military key code A contribution of property to a partnership in exchange for a partnership interest. H&r block military key code A partnership distribution of property to a partner. H&r block military key code Election To Exclude Property From MACRS If you can properly depreciate any property under a method not based on a term of years, such as the unit-of-production method, you can elect to exclude that property from MACRS. H&r block military key code You make the election by reporting your depreciation for the property on line 15 in Part II of Form 4562 and attaching a statement as described in the instructions for Form 4562. H&r block military key code You must make this election by the return due date (including extensions) for the tax year you place your property in service. H&r block military key code However, if you timely filed your return for the year without making the election, you can still make the election by filing an amended return within six months of the due date of the return (excluding extensions). H&r block military key code Attach the election to the amended return and write “Filed pursuant to section 301. H&r block military key code 9100-2” on the election statement. H&r block military key code File the amended return at the same address you filed the original return. H&r block military key code Use of standard mileage rate. H&r block military key code   If you use the standard mileage rate to figure your tax deduction for your business automobile, you are treated as having made an election to exclude the automobile from MACRS. H&r block military key code See Publication 463 for a discussion of the standard mileage rate. H&r block military key code What Is the Basis of Your Depreciable Property? To figure your depreciation deduction, you must determine the basis of your property. H&r block military key code To determine basis, you need to know the cost or other basis of your property. H&r block military key code Cost as Basis The basis of property you buy is its cost plus amounts you paid for items such as sales tax (see Exception , below), freight charges, and installation and testing fees. H&r block military key code The cost includes the amount you pay in cash, debt obligations, other property, or services. H&r block military key code Exception. H&r block military key code   You can elect to deduct state and local general sales taxes instead of state and local income taxes as an itemized deduction on Schedule A (Form 1040). H&r block military key code If you make that choice, you cannot include those sales taxes as part of your cost basis. H&r block military key code Assumed debt. H&r block military key code   If you buy property and assume (or buy subject to) an existing mortgage or other debt on the property, your basis includes the amount you pay for the property plus the amount of the assumed debt. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code You make a $20,000 down payment on property and assume the seller's mortgage of $120,000. H&r block military key code Your total cost is $140,000, the cash you paid plus the mortgage you assumed. H&r block military key code Settlement costs. H&r block military key code   The basis of real property also includes certain fees and charges you pay in addition to the purchase price. H&r block military key code These generally are shown on your settlement statement and include the following. H&r block military key code Legal and recording fees. H&r block military key code Abstract fees. H&r block military key code Survey charges. H&r block military key code Owner's title insurance. H&r block military key code Amounts the seller owes that you agree to pay, such as back taxes or interest, recording or mortgage fees, charges for improvements or repairs, and sales commissions. H&r block military key code   For fees and charges you cannot include in the basis of property, see Real Property in Publication 551. H&r block military key code Property you construct or build. H&r block military key code   If you construct, build, or otherwise produce property for use in your business, you may have to use the uniform capitalization rules to determine the basis of your property. H&r block military key code For information about the uniform capitalization rules, see Publication 551 and the regulations under section 263A of the Internal Revenue Code. H&r block military key code Other Basis Other basis usually refers to basis that is determined by the way you received the property. H&r block military key code For example, your basis is other than cost if you acquired the property in exchange for other property, as payment for services you performed, as a gift, or as an inheritance. H&r block military key code If you acquired property in this or some other way, see Publication 551 to determine your basis. H&r block military key code Property changed from personal use. H&r block military key code   If you held property for personal use and later use it in your business or income-producing activity, your depreciable basis is the lesser of the following. H&r block military key code The fair market value (FMV) of the property on the date of the change in use. H&r block military key code Your original cost or other basis adjusted as follows. H&r block military key code Increased by the cost of any permanent improvements or additions and other costs that must be added to basis. H&r block military key code Decreased by any deductions you claimed for casualty and theft losses and other items that reduced your basis. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code Several years ago, Nia paid $160,000 to have her home built on a lot that cost her $25,000. H&r block military key code Before changing the property to rental use last year, she paid $20,000 for permanent improvements to the house and claimed a $2,000 casualty loss deduction for damage to the house. H&r block military key code Land is not depreciable, so she includes only the cost of the house when figuring the basis for depreciation. H&r block military key code Nia's adjusted basis in the house when she changed its use was $178,000 ($160,000 + $20,000 − $2,000). H&r block military key code On the same date, her property had an FMV of $180,000, of which $15,000 was for the land and $165,000 was for the house. H&r block military key code The basis for depreciation on the house is the FMV on the date of change ($165,000), because it is less than her adjusted basis ($178,000). H&r block military key code Property acquired in a nontaxable transaction. H&r block military key code   Generally, if you receive property in a nontaxable exchange, the basis of the property you receive is the same as the adjusted basis of the property you gave up. H&r block military key code Special rules apply in determining the basis and figuring the MACRS depreciation deduction and special depreciation allowance for property acquired in a like-kind exchange or involuntary conversion. H&r block military key code See Like-kind exchanges and involuntary conversions. H&r block military key code under How Much Can You Deduct? in chapter 3 and Figuring the Deduction for Property Acquired in a Nontaxable Exchange in chapter 4. H&r block military key code   There are also special rules for determining the basis of MACRS property involved in a like-kind exchange or involuntary conversion when the property is contained in a general asset account. H&r block military key code See How Do You Use General Asset Accounts in chapter 4. H&r block military key code Adjusted Basis To find your property's basis for depreciation, you may have to make certain adjustments (increases and decreases) to the basis of the property for events occurring between the time you acquired the property and the time you placed it in service. H&r block military key code These events could include the following. H&r block military key code Installing utility lines. H&r block military key code Paying legal fees for perfecting the title. H&r block military key code Settling zoning issues. H&r block military key code Receiving rebates. H&r block military key code Incurring a casualty or theft loss. H&r block military key code For a discussion of adjustments to the basis of your property, see Adjusted Basis in Publication 551. H&r block military key code If you depreciate your property under MACRS, you also may have to reduce your basis by certain deductions and credits with respect to the property. H&r block military key code For more information, see What Is the Basis for Depreciation in chapter 4. H&r block military key code . H&r block military key code Basis adjustment for depreciation allowed or allowable. H&r block military key code   You must reduce the basis of property by the depreciation allowed or allowable, whichever is greater. H&r block military key code Depreciation allowed is depreciation you actually deducted (from which you received a tax benefit). H&r block military key code Depreciation allowable is depreciation you are entitled to deduct. H&r block military key code   If you do not claim depreciation you are entitled to deduct, you must still reduce the basis of the property by the full amount of depreciation allowable. H&r block military key code   If you deduct more depreciation than you should, you must reduce your basis by any amount deducted from which you received a tax benefit (the depreciation allowed). H&r block military key code How Do You Treat Repairs and Improvements? If you improve depreciable property, you must treat the improvement as separate depreciable property. H&r block military key code Improvement means an addition to or partial replacement of property that adds to its value, appreciably lengthens the time you can use it, or adapts it to a different use. H&r block military key code You generally deduct the cost of repairing business property in the same way as any other business expense. H&r block military key code However, if a repair or replacement increases the value of your property, makes it more useful, or lengthens its life, you must treat it as an improvement and depreciate it. H&r block military key code Example. H&r block military key code You repair a small section on one corner of the roof of a rental house. H&r block military key code You deduct the cost of the repair as a rental expense. H&r block military key code However, if you completely replace the roof, the new roof is an improvement because it increases the value and lengthens the life of the property. H&r block military key code You depreciate the cost of the new roof. H&r block military key code Improvements to rented property. H&r block military key code   You can depreciate permanent improvements you make to business property you rent from someone else. H&r block military key code Do You Have To File Form 4562? Use Form 4562 to figure your deduction for depreciation and amortization. H&r block military key code Attach Form 4562 to your tax return for the current tax year if you are claiming any of the following items. H&r block military key code A section 179 deduction for the current year or a section 179 carryover from a prior year. H&r block military key code See chapter 2 for information on the section 179 deduction. H&r block military key code Depreciation for property placed in service during the current year. H&r block military key code Depreciation on any vehicle or other listed property, regardless of when it was placed in service. H&r block military key code See chapter 5 for information on listed property. H&r block military key code A deduction for any vehicle if the deduction is reported on a form other than Schedule C (Form 1040) or Schedule C-EZ (Form 1040). H&r block military key code Amortization of costs if the current year is the first year of the amortization period. H&r block military key code Depreciation or amortization on any asset on a corporate income tax return (other than Form 1120S, U. H&r block military key code S. H&r block military key code Income Tax Return for an S Corporation) regardless of when it was placed in service. H&r block military key code You must submit a separate Form 4562 for each business or activity on your return for which a Form 4562 is required. H&r block military key code Table 1-1 presents an overview of the purpose of the various parts of Form 4562. H&r block military key code Employee. H&r block military key code   Do not use Form 4562 if you are an employee and you deduct job-related vehicle expenses using either actual expenses (including depreciation) or the standard mileage rate. H&r block military key code Instead, use either Form 2106 or Form 2106-EZ. H&r block military key code Use Form 2106-EZ if you are claiming the standard mileage rate and you are not reimbursed by your employer for any expenses. H&r block military key code How Do You Correct Depreciation Deductions? If you deducted an incorrect amount of depreciation in any year, you may be able to make a correction by filing an amended return for that year. H&r block military key code See Filing an Amended Return , next. H&r block military key code If you are not allowed to make the correction on an amended return, you may be able to change your accounting method to claim the correct amount of depreciation. H&r block military key code See Changing Your Accounting Method , later. H&r block military key code Filing an Amended Return You can file an amended return to correct the amount of depreciation claimed for any property in any of the following situations. H&r block military key code You claimed the incorrect amount because of a mathematical error made in any year. H&r block military key code You claimed the incorrect amount because of a posting error made in any year. H&r block military key code You have not adopted a method of accounting for property placed in service by you in tax years ending after December 29, 2003. H&r block military key code You claimed the incorrect amount on property placed in service by you in tax years ending before December 30, 2003. H&r block military key code Adoption of accounting method defined. H&r block military key code   Generally, you adopt a method of accounting for depreciation by using a permissible method of determining depreciation when you file your first tax return, or by using the same impermissible method of determining depreciation in two or more consecutively filed tax returns. H&r block military key code   For an exception to this 2-year rule, see Revenue Procedure 2011-14 on page 330 of the Internal Revenue Bulletin 2011-4, available at www.

H&r block military key code   If an amended return is allowed, you must file it by the later of the following. H&r block military key code 3 years from the date you filed your original return for the year in which you did not deduct the correct amount. H&r block military key code A return filed before an unextended due date is considered filed on that due date. H&r block military key code 2 years from the time you paid your tax for that year. H&r block military key code Changing Your Accounting Method Generally, you must get IRS approval to change your method of accounting. H&r block military key code You generally must file Form 3115, Application for Change in Accounting Method, to request a change in your method of accounting for depreciation. H&r block military key code The following are examples of a change in method of accounting for depreciation. H&r block military key code A change from an impermissible method of determining depreciation for depreciable property, if the impermissible method was used in two or more consecutively filed tax returns. H&r block military key code A change in the treatment of an asset from nondepreciable to depreciable or vice versa. H&r block military key code A change in the depreciation method, period of recovery, or convention of a depreciable asset. H&r block military key code A change from not claiming to claiming the special depreciation allowance if you did not make the election to not claim any special allowance. H&r block military key code A change from claiming a 50% special depreciation allowance to claiming a 30% special depreciation allowance for qualified property (including property that is included in a class of property for which you elected a 30% special allowance instead of a 50% special allowance). H&r block military key code Changes in depreciation that are not a change in method of accounting (and may only be made on an amended return) include the following. H&r block military key code An adjustment in the useful life of a depreciable asset for which depreciation is determined under section 167. H&r block military key code A change in use of an asset in the hands of the same taxpayer. H&r block military key code Making a late depreciation election or revoking a timely valid depreciation election (including the election not to deduct the special depreciation allowance). H&r block military key code If you elected not to claim any special allowance, a change from not claiming to claiming the special allowance is a revocation of the election and is not an accounting method change. H&r block military key code Generally, you must get IRS approval to make a late depreciation election or revoke a depreciation election. H&r block military key code You must submit a request for a letter ruling to make a late election or revoke an election. H&r block military key code Any change in the placed in service date of a depreciable asset. H&r block military key code See section 1. H&r block military key code 446-1(e)(2)(ii)(d) of the regulations for more information and examples. H&r block military key code IRS approval. H&r block military key code   In some instances, you may be able to get approval from the IRS to change your method of accounting for depreciation under the automatic change request procedures generally covered in Revenue Procedure 2011-14. H&r block military key code If you do not qualify to use the automatic procedures to get approval, you must use the advance consent request procedures generally covered in Revenue Procedure 97-27, 1997-1 C.

H&r block military key code Purpose of Form 4562 This table describes the purpose of the various parts of Form 4562. H&r block military key code For more information, see Form 4562 and its instructions. H&r block military key code Part Purpose I • Electing the section 179 deduction • Figuring the maximum section 179 deduction for the current year • Figuring any section 179 deduction carryover to the next year II • Reporting the special depreciation allowance for property (other than listed property) placed in service during the tax year • Reporting depreciation deductions on property being depreciated under any method other than Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS) III • Reporting MACRS depreciation deductions for property placed in service before this year • Reporting MACRS depreciation deductions for property (other than listed property) placed in service during the current year IV • Summarizing other parts V • Reporting the special depreciation allowance for automobiles and other listed property • Reporting MACRS depreciation on automobiles and other listed property • Reporting the section 179 cost elected for automobiles and other listed property • Reporting information on the use of automobiles and other transportation vehicles VI • Reporting amortization deductions Section 481(a) adjustment. H&r block military key code   If you file Form 3115 and change from an impermissible method to a permissible method of accounting for depreciation, you can make a section 481(a) adjustment for any unclaimed or excess amount of allowable depreciation. H&r block military key code The adjustment is the difference between the total depreciation actually deducted for the property and the total amount allowable prior to the year of change. H&r block military key code If no depreciation was deducted, the adjustment is the total depreciation allowable prior to the year of change.

H&r block military key code Publication 901 - Main Content Table of Contents Application of Treaties Tax Exemptions Provided by TreatiesPersonal Services Income Professors, Teachers, and Researchers Students and Apprentices Wages and Pensions Paid by a Foreign Government Explanation of TablesTable 1 Table 2 Table 3 Application of Treaties The United States has income tax treaties with a number of foreign countries. H&r block military key code Under these treaties, residents (not necessarily citizens) of foreign countries are taxed at a reduced rate, or are exempt from U. H&r block military key code S. H&r block military key code income taxes on certain items of income they receive from sources within the United States. H&r block military key code These reduced rates and exemptions vary among countries and specific items of income. H&r block military key code If there is no treaty between your country and the United States, you must pay tax on the income in the same way and at the same rates shown in the instructions for Form 1040NR. H&r block military key code Also see Publication 519. H&r block military key code Many of the individual states of the United States tax the income of their residents. H&r block military key code Therefore, you should consult the tax authorities of the state in which you live to find out if that state taxes the income of individuals and, if so, whether the tax applies to any of your income. H&r block military key code Tax treaties reduce the U. H&r block military key code S. H&r block military key code taxes of residents of foreign countries. H&r block military key code With certain exceptions, they do not reduce the U. H&r block military key code S. H&r block military key code taxes of U. H&r block military key code S. H&r block military key code citizens or residents. H&r block military key code U. H&r block military key code S. H&r block military key code citizens and residents are subject to U. H&r block military key code S. H&r block military key code income tax on their worldwide income. H&r block military key code Treaty provisions generally are reciprocal (apply to both treaty countries); therefore, a U. H&r block military key code S. H&r block military key code citizen or resident who receives income from a treaty country may refer to the tables in this publication to see if a tax treaty might affect the tax to be paid to that foreign country. H&r block military key code Foreign taxing authorities sometimes require certification from the U. H&r block military key code S. H&r block military key code Government that an applicant filed an income tax return as a U. H&r block military key code S. H&r block military key code citizen or resident, as part of the proof of entitlement to the treaty benefits. H&r block military key code See Form 8802, Application for United States Residency Certification, to request a certification.

H&r block military key code tax is overruled or otherwise reduced by a U. H&r block military key code S. H&r block military key code treaty (a treaty-based position), you generally must disclose that position on Form 8833 and attach it to your return. H&r block military key code If you are not required to file a return because of your treaty-based position, you must file a return anyway to report your position. H&r block military key code The filing of Form 8833 does not apply to a reduced rate of withholding tax on noneffectively connected income, such as dividends, interest, rents or royalties, or to a reduced rate of tax on pay received for services performed as an employee, including pensions, annuities, and social security. H&r block military key code For more information, see Publication 519 and the Form 8833 instructions.
