2011 tax forms instructions Internal Revenue Bulletin:  2009-17  April 27, 2009  Rev. 2011 tax forms instructions Proc. 2011 tax forms instructions 2009-24 Table of Contents SECTION 1. 2011 tax forms instructions PURPOSE SECTION 2. 2011 tax forms instructions BACKGROUND SECTION 3. 2011 tax forms instructions SCOPE SECTION 4. 2011 tax forms instructions APPLICATION. 2011 tax forms instructions 01 In General. 2011 tax forms instructions . 2011 tax forms instructions 02 Limitations on Depreciation Deductions for Certain Automobiles. 2011 tax forms instructions . 2011 tax forms instructions 03 Inclusions in Income of Lessees of Passenger Automobiles. 2011 tax forms instructions SECTION 5. 2011 tax forms instructions EFFECTIVE DATE SECTION 6. 2011 tax forms instructions DRAFTING INFORMATION SECTION 1. 2011 tax forms instructions PURPOSE . 2011 tax forms instructions 01 This revenue procedure provides: (1) limitations on depreciation deductions for owners of passenger automobiles first placed in service by the taxpayer during calendar year 2009, including a separate table of limitations on depreciation deductions for trucks and vans; and (2) the amounts to be included in income by lessees of passenger automobiles first leased by the taxpayer during calendar year 2009, including a separate table of inclusion amounts for lessees of trucks and vans. 2011 tax forms instructions . 2011 tax forms instructions 02 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. 2011 tax forms instructions SECTION 2. 2011 tax forms instructions BACKGROUND . 2011 tax forms instructions 01 For owners of passenger automobiles, § 280F(a) imposes dollar limitations on the depreciation deduction for the year that the passenger automobile is placed in service by the taxpayer and each succeeding year. 2011 tax forms instructions Section 280F(d)(7) requires the amounts allowable as depreciation deductions to be increased by a price inflation adjustment amount for passenger automobiles placed in service after 1988. 2011 tax forms instructions 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. 2011 tax forms instructions This change reflects the higher rate of price inflation that trucks and vans have been subject to since 1988. 2011 tax forms instructions . 2011 tax forms instructions 02 Section 168(k)(1)(A) provides a 50 percent additional first year depreciation deduction for certain new property acquired by a taxpayer after December 31, 2007, and before January 1, 2010, if no written binding contract for the acquisition of the property existed before January 1, 2008. 2011 tax forms instructions Section 168(k)(2)(F)(i) increases the first year depreciation allowed under § 280F(a)(1)(A) by $8,000 for passenger automobiles to which the 50 percent additional first year depreciation deduction applies. 2011 tax forms instructions . 2011 tax forms instructions 03 Section 168(k)(2)(D)(i) provides that the 50 percent 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). 2011 tax forms instructions Section 168(k)(2)(D)(iii) permits a taxpayer to elect to not claim the 50 percent additional first year depreciation deduction for any class of property. 2011 tax forms instructions Section 168(k)(4) permits a corporation to elect to not claim the 50 percent additional first year depreciation deduction for all eligible qualified property (that is extension property or that is not extension property, as applicable) and instead to increase the business credit limitation under § 38(c) or the alternative minimum tax credit limitation under § 53(c). 2011 tax forms instructions Accordingly, this revenue procedure provides tables for passenger automobiles for which the 50 percent additional depreciation deduction applies and tables for passenger automobiles for which the 50 percent additional first year depreciation deduction does not apply, including passenger automobiles in a class of property for which the taxpayer “elects out” of the 50 percent additional first year depreciation deduction or passenger automobiles that are eligible qualified property to which the § 168(k)(4) election applies. 2011 tax forms instructions . 2011 tax forms instructions 04 For leased passenger automobiles, § 280F(c) requires a reduction in the deduction allowed to the lessee of the passenger automobile. 2011 tax forms instructions The reduction must be substantially equivalent to the limitations on the depreciation deductions imposed on owners of passenger automobiles. 2011 tax forms instructions Under § 1. 2011 tax forms instructions 280F-7(a) of the Income Tax Regulations, this reduction requires a lessee to include in gross income an inclusion amount determined by applying a formula to the amount obtained from a table. 2011 tax forms instructions One table applies to lessees of trucks and vans and another table applies to all other passenger automobiles. 2011 tax forms instructions Each table shows inclusion amounts for a range of fair market values for each taxable year after the passenger automobile is first leased. 2011 tax forms instructions SECTION 3. 2011 tax forms instructions SCOPE . 2011 tax forms instructions 01 The limitations on depreciation deductions in section 4. 2011 tax forms instructions 02(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 2009, and continue to apply for each taxable year that the passenger automobile remains in service. 2011 tax forms instructions . 2011 tax forms instructions 02 The tables in section 4. 2011 tax forms instructions 03 of this revenue procedure apply to leased passenger automobiles for which the lease term begins during calendar year 2009. 2011 tax forms instructions 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. 2011 tax forms instructions See Rev. 2011 tax forms instructions Proc. 2011 tax forms instructions 2002-14, 2002-1 C. 2011 tax forms instructions B. 2011 tax forms instructions

depreciation deductions for certain automobiles. 2011 tax forms instructions The limitations on depreciation deductions for passenger automobiles placed in service by the taxpayer for the first time during calendar year 2009 are in Tables 1 through 4 in section 4. 2011 tax forms instructions 02(2) of this revenue procedure. 2011 tax forms instructions (2) Inclusions in income of lessees of passenger automobiles. 2011 tax forms instructions A taxpayer first leasing a passenger automobile during calendar year 2009 must determine the inclusion amount that is added to gross income using Tables 5 and 6 in section 4. 2011 tax forms instructions 03 of this revenue procedure. 2011 tax forms instructions In addition, the taxpayer must follow the procedures of § 1. 2011 tax forms instructions 280F-7(a). 2011 tax forms instructions . 2011 tax forms instructions 02 Limitations on Depreciation Deductions for Certain Automobiles. 2011 tax forms instructions (1) Amount of the inflation adjustment. 2011 tax forms instructions (a) Passenger automobiles (other than trucks or vans). 2011 tax forms instructions 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. 2011 tax forms instructions The term “CPI automobile component” is defined in § 280F(d)(7)(B)(ii) as the “automobile component” of the Consumer Price Index for all Urban Consumers published by the Department of Labor. 2011 tax forms instructions The new car component of the CPI was 115. 2011 tax forms instructions 2 for October 1987 and 134. 2011 tax forms instructions 837 for October 2008. 2011 tax forms instructions The October 2008 index exceeded the October 1987 index by 19. 2011 tax forms instructions 637. 2011 tax forms instructions The Internal Revenue Service has, therefore, determined that the automobile price inflation adjustment for 2009 for passenger automobiles (other than trucks and vans) is 17. 2011 tax forms instructions 05 percent (19. 2011 tax forms instructions 637/115. 2011 tax forms instructions 2 x 100%). 2011 tax forms instructions This adjustment is applicable to all passenger automobiles (other than trucks and vans) that are first placed in service in calendar year 2009. 2011 tax forms instructions The dollar limitations in § 280F(a) therefore must be multiplied by a factor of 0. 2011 tax forms instructions 1705, 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 2009. 2011 tax forms instructions (b) Trucks and vans. 2011 tax forms instructions To determine the dollar limitations applicable to trucks and vans first placed in service during calendar year 2009, the new truck component of the CPI is used instead of the new car component. 2011 tax forms instructions The new truck component of the CPI was 112. 2011 tax forms instructions 4 for October 1987 and 133. 2011 tax forms instructions 640 for October 2008. 2011 tax forms instructions The October 2008 index exceeded the October 1987 index by 21. 2011 tax forms instructions 24. 2011 tax forms instructions The Service has, therefore, determined that the automobile price inflation adjustment for 2009 for trucks and vans is 18. 2011 tax forms instructions 90 percent (21. 2011 tax forms instructions 24/112. 2011 tax forms instructions 4 x 100%). 2011 tax forms instructions This adjustment is applicable to all trucks and vans that are first placed in service in calendar year 2009. 2011 tax forms instructions The dollar limitations in § 280F(a) therefore must be multiplied by a factor of 0. 2011 tax forms instructions 1890, and the resulting increases, after rounding to the nearest $100, are added to the 1988 limitations to give the depreciation limitations applicable to trucks and vans. 2011 tax forms instructions (2) Amount of the limitation. 2011 tax forms instructions For passenger automobiles placed in service by the taxpayer in calendar year 2009, Tables 1 through 4 contain the dollar amount of the depreciation limitation for each taxable year. 2011 tax forms instructions Use Table 1 for a passenger automobile (other than a truck or van) placed in service by the taxpayer in calendar year 2009, for which the 50 percent additional first year depreciation deduction does not apply, including a passenger automobile (other than a truck or van) in a class of property for which the taxpayer elects out of the 50 percent additional first year depreciation deduction or a passenger automobile that is eligible qualified property to which the § 168(k)(4) election applies. 2011 tax forms instructions Use Table 2 for a passenger automobile (other than a truck or van) placed in service by the taxpayer in calendar year 2009, for which the 50 percent additional first year depreciation deduction applies. 2011 tax forms instructions Use Table 3 for a truck or van
