1040ez instuctions Internal Revenue Bulletin:  2012-14  April 2, 2012  Rev. 1040ez instuctions Proc. 1040ez instuctions 2012-23 Table of Contents SECTION 1. 1040ez instuctions PURPOSE SECTION 2. 1040ez instuctions BACKGROUND SECTION 3. 1040ez instuctions SCOPE SECTION 4. 1040ez instuctions APPLICATION. 1040ez instuctions 01 Limitations on Depreciation Deductions for Certain Automobiles. 1040ez instuctions . 1040ez instuctions 02 Inclusions in Income of Lessees of Passenger Automobiles. 1040ez instuctions SECTION 5. 1040ez instuctions EFFECTIVE DATE SECTION 6. 1040ez instuctions DRAFTING INFORMATION SECTION 1. 1040ez instuctions 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 2012, 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 2012, including a separate table of inclusion amounts for lessees of trucks and vans. 1040ez instuctions 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. 1040ez instuctions SECTION 2. 1040ez instuctions BACKGROUND . 1040ez instuctions 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. 1040ez instuctions 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. 1040ez instuctions 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. 1040ez instuctions This change reflects the higher rate of price inflation for trucks and vans since 1988. 1040ez instuctions . 1040ez instuctions 02 Section 401(a) of the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010, Pub. 1040ez instuctions L. 1040ez instuctions No. 1040ez instuctions 111-312, 124 Stat. 1040ez instuctions 3296 (Dec. 1040ez instuctions 17, 2010) (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, 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. 1040ez instuctions 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. 1040ez instuctions . 1040ez instuctions 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). 1040ez instuctions 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. 1040ez instuctions 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)). 1040ez instuctions Accordingly, this revenue procedure provides tables for passenger automobiles for which the § 168(k) additional first year depreciation deduction applies. 1040ez instuctions 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 2012 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. 1040ez instuctions . 1040ez instuctions 04 Section 280F(c) requires a reduction in the deduction allowed to the lessee of a leased passenger automobile. 1040ez instuctions The reduction must be substantially equivalent to the limitations on the depreciation deductions imposed on owners of passenger automobiles. 1040ez instuctions Under § 1. 1040ez instuctions 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. 1040ez instuctions One table applies to lessees of trucks and vans and another table applies to all other passenger automobiles. 1040ez instuctions Each table shows inclusion amounts for a range of fair market values for each taxable year after the passenger automobile is first leased. 1040ez instuctions SECTION 3. 1040ez instuctions SCOPE . 1040ez instuctions 01 The limitations on depreciation deductions in section 4. 1040ez instuctions 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 2012, and continue to apply for each taxable year that the passenger automobile remains in service. 1040ez instuctions . 1040ez instuctions 02 The tables in section 4. 1040ez instuctions 02 of this revenue procedure apply to leased passenger automobiles for which the lease term begins during calendar year 2012. 1040ez instuctions 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. 1040ez instuctions See Rev. 1040ez instuctions Proc. 1040ez instuctions 2007-30, 2007-1

passenger automobiles first leased during calendar year 2011. 1040ez instuctions SECTION 4. 1040ez instuctions APPLICATION . 1040ez instuctions 01 Limitations on Depreciation Deductions for Certain Automobiles. 1040ez instuctions (1) Amount of the inflation adjustment. 1040ez instuctions (a) Passenger automobiles (other than trucks or vans). 1040ez instuctions 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. 1040ez instuctions 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. 1040ez instuctions The new car component of the CPI was 115. 1040ez instuctions 2 for October 1987 and 143. 1040ez instuctions 419 for October 2011. 1040ez instuctions The October 2011 index exceeded the October 1987 index by 28. 1040ez instuctions 219. 1040ez instuctions Therefore, the automobile price inflation adjustment for 2012 for passenger automobiles (other than trucks and vans) is 24. 1040ez instuctions 5 percent (28. 1040ez instuctions 219/115. 1040ez instuctions 2 x 100%). 1040ez instuctions The dollar limitations in § 280F(a) are multiplied by a factor of 0. 1040ez instuctions 245, 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 2012. 1040ez instuctions This adjustment applies to all passenger automobiles (other than trucks and vans) that are first placed in service in calendar year 2012. 1040ez instuctions (b) Trucks and vans. 1040ez instuctions To determine the dollar limitations for trucks and vans first placed in service during calendar year 2012, the Service uses the new truck component of the CPI instead of the new car component. 1040ez instuctions The new truck component of the CPI was 112. 1040ez instuctions 4 for October 1987 and 146. 1040ez instuctions 607 for October 2011. 1040ez instuctions The October 2011 index exceeded the October 1987 index by 34. 1040ez instuctions 207. 1040ez instuctions Therefore, the automobile price inflation adjustment for 2012 for trucks and vans is 30. 1040ez instuctions 43 percent (34. 1040ez instuctions 207/112. 1040ez instuctions 4 x 100%). 1040ez instuctions The dollar limitations in § 280F(a) are multiplied by a factor of 0. 1040ez instuctions 3043, 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. 1040ez instuctions This adjustment applies to all trucks and vans that are first placed in service in calendar year 2012. 1040ez instuctions (2) Amount of the limitation. 1040ez instuctions 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 2012. 1040ez instuctions 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 2012 for which the § 168(k) additional first year depreciation deduction applies. 1040ez instuctions 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 2012 for which the § 168(k) additional first year depreciation deduction does not apply. 1040ez instuctions REV. 1040ez instuctions PROC. 1040ez instuctions 2012-23 TABLE 1 DEPRECIATION LIMITATIONS
