deduction), amortization, depletion, etc. 1040nr If you did not acquire the property by purchasing it, your basis is determined as discussed in Publication 551, Basis of Assets. 1040nr If you inherited the property from someone who died in 2010 and the executor of the decedent's estate made the election to file Form 8939, Allocation of Increase in Basis for Property Received From a Decedent, refer to the information provided by the executor or see Publication 4895, Tax Treatment of Property Acquired From a Decedent Dying in 2010. 1040nr Fair market value. 1040nr   Fair market value is the price for which you could sell your property to a willing buyer, when neither of you has to sell or buy and both of you know all the relevant facts. 1040nr When filling out Schedules 1 through 6, you need to know the fair market value of the property immediately before and immediately after the disaster or casualty. 1040nr Deduction limits. 1040nr   If your casualty or theft loss involved a home you used for business or rented out, your deductible loss may be limited. 1040nr See the Instructions for Form 4684, Section B. 1040nr If the casualty or theft loss involved property used in a passive activity, see Form 8582, Passive Activity Loss Limitations, and its instructions. 1040nr   The casualty and theft loss deduction for employee property, when added to your job expenses and most other miscellaneous itemized deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040), must be reduced by 2% of your adjusted gross income. 1040nr Employee property is property used in performing services as an employee. 1040nr Comments and Suggestions We welcome your comments about this publication and your suggestions for future editions. 1040nr You can write to us at the following address:
