H&r block free taxes Internal Revenue Bulletin:  2010-9  March 1, 2010  Rev. H&r block free taxes Proc. H&r block free taxes 2010-18 Table of Contents SECTION 1. H&r block free taxes PURPOSE SECTION 2. H&r block free taxes BACKGROUND SECTION 3. H&r block free taxes SCOPE SECTION 4. H&r block free taxes APPLICATION SECTION 5. H&r block free taxes EFFECTIVE DATE SECTION 6. H&r block free taxes DRAFTING INFORMATION SECTION 1. H&r block free taxes 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 2010, 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 2010, including a separate table of inclusion amounts for lessees of trucks and vans. H&r block free taxes 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. H&r block free taxes SECTION 2. H&r block free taxes BACKGROUND . H&r block free taxes 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. H&r block free taxes 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. H&r block free taxes 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. H&r block free taxes This change reflects the higher rate of price inflation for trucks and vans since 1988. H&r block free taxes . H&r block free taxes 02 Section 280F(c) requires a reduction in the deduction allowed to the lessee of a leased passenger automobile. H&r block free taxes The reduction must be substantially equivalent to the limitations on the depreciation deductions imposed on owners of passenger automobiles. H&r block free taxes Under § 1. H&r block free taxes 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. H&r block free taxes One table applies to lessees of trucks and vans and another table applies to all other passenger automobiles. H&r block free taxes Each table shows inclusion amounts for a range of fair market values for each taxable year after the passenger automobile is first leased. H&r block free taxes SECTION 3. H&r block free taxes SCOPE . H&r block free taxes 01 The limitations on depreciation deductions in section 4. H&r block free taxes 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 2010, and continue to apply for each taxable year that the passenger automobile remains in service. H&r block free taxes . H&r block free taxes 02 The tables in section 4. H&r block free taxes 02 of this revenue procedure apply to leased passenger automobiles for which the lease term begins during calendar year 2010. H&r block free taxes 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.

H&r block free taxes 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. H&r block free taxes 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. H&r block free taxes The new car component of the CPI was 115. H&r block free taxes 2 for October 1987 and 137. H&r block free taxes 851 for October 2009.

H&r block free taxes This adjustment applies to all passenger automobiles (other than trucks and vans) that are first placed in service in calendar year 2010. H&r block free taxes (b) Trucks and vans. H&r block free taxes To determine the dollar limitations for trucks and vans first placed in service during calendar year 2010, the new truck component of the CPI is used instead of the new car component. H&r block free taxes The new truck component of the CPI was 112. H&r block free taxes 4 for October 1987 and 140. H&r block free taxes 897 for October 2009. H&r block free taxes The October 2009 index exceeded the October 1987 index by 28. H&r block free taxes 497. H&r block free taxes Therefore, the automobile price inflation adjustment for 2010 for trucks and vans is 25. H&r block free taxes 35 percent (28. H&r block free taxes 497/112. H&r block free taxes 4 x 100%). H&r block free taxes The dollar limitations in § 280F(a) are multiplied by a factor of 0. H&r block free taxes 2535, 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.

H&r block free taxes Future Developments What's New for 2013 What's New for 2014 Reminders Photographs of Missing Children Introduction The purpose of this publication is to provide general information about the federal tax laws that apply to small business owners who are sole proprietors and to statutory employees. H&r block free taxes This publication has information on business income, expenses, and tax credits that may help you file your income tax return. H&r block free taxes Are you self-employed?   You are self-employed if you carry on a trade or business as a sole proprietor or an independent contractor. H&r block free taxes Sole proprietor. H&r block free taxes   A sole proprietor is someone who owns an unincorporated business by himself or herself. H&r block free taxes However, if you are the sole member of a domestic limited liability company (LLC), you are not a sole proprietor if you elect to treat the LLC as a corporation. H&r block free taxes Trade or business. H&r block free taxes    A trade or business is generally an activity carried on to make a profit. H&r block free taxes The facts and circumstances of each case determine whether or not an activity is a trade or business. H&r block free taxes You do not need to actually make a profit to be in a trade or business as long as you have a profit motive. H&r block free taxes You do need to make ongoing efforts to further the interests of your business. H&r block free taxes   You do not have to carry on regular full-time business activities to be self-employed. H&r block free taxes Having a part-time business in addition to your regular job or business may be self-employment. H&r block free taxes Independent contractor. H&r block free taxes    People such as doctors, dentists, veterinarians, lawyers, accountants, contractors, subcontractors, public stenographers, or auctioneers who are in an independent trade, business, or profession in which they offer their services to the general public are generally independent contractors. H&r block free taxes However, whether they are independent contractors or employees depends on the facts in each case. H&r block free taxes The general rule is that an individual is an independent contractor if the payer has the right to control or to direct only the result of the work and not how it will be done. H&r block free taxes The earnings of a person who is working as an independent contractor are subject to self-employment tax. H&r block free taxes For more information on determining whether you are an employee or independent contractor, see Publication 15-A, Employer's Supplemental Tax Guide.

H&r block free taxes   A limited liability company (LLC) is an entity formed under state law by filing articles of organization. H&r block free taxes Generally, a single-member LLC is disregarded as an entity separate from its owner and reports its income and deductions on its owner's federal income tax return. H&r block free taxes An owner who is an individual may use Schedule C or C-EZ. H&r block free taxes Business owned and operated by spouses. H&r block free taxes   If you and your spouse jointly own and operate an unincorporated business and share in the profits and losses, you are partners in a partnership, whether or not you have a formal partnership agreement.

H&r block free taxes If you and your spouse each materially participate as the only members of a jointly owned and operated business, and you file a joint return for the tax year, you can make a joint election to be treated as a qualified joint venture instead of a partnership for the tax year.

H&r block free taxes   To make this election, you must divide all items of income, gain, loss, deduction, and credit attributable to the business between you and your spouse in accordance with your respective interests in the venture.
