H&rblock online Internal Revenue Bulletin:  2009-17  April 27, 2009  Rev. H&rblock online Proc. H&rblock online 2009-24 Table of Contents SECTION 1. H&rblock online PURPOSE SECTION 2. H&rblock online BACKGROUND SECTION 3. H&rblock online SCOPE SECTION 4. H&rblock online APPLICATION. H&rblock online 01 In General. H&rblock online . H&rblock online 02 Limitations on Depreciation Deductions for Certain Automobiles. H&rblock online . H&rblock online 03 Inclusions in Income of Lessees of Passenger Automobiles. H&rblock online SECTION 5. H&rblock online EFFECTIVE DATE SECTION 6. H&rblock online DRAFTING INFORMATION SECTION 1. H&rblock online PURPOSE . H&rblock online 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. H&rblock online . H&rblock online 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. H&rblock online SECTION 2. H&rblock online BACKGROUND . H&rblock online 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. H&rblock online 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&rblock online 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&rblock online This change reflects the higher rate of price inflation that trucks and vans have been subject to since 1988. H&rblock online . H&rblock online 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. H&rblock online 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. H&rblock online . H&rblock online 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). H&rblock online 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. H&rblock online 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). H&rblock online 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. H&rblock online . H&rblock online 04 For leased passenger automobiles, § 280F(c) requires a reduction in the deduction allowed to the lessee of the passenger automobile. H&rblock online The reduction must be substantially equivalent to the limitations on the depreciation deductions imposed on owners of passenger automobiles. H&rblock online Under § 1. H&rblock online 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&rblock online One table applies to lessees of trucks and vans and another table applies to all other passenger automobiles. H&rblock online Each table shows inclusion amounts for a range of fair market values for each taxable year after the passenger automobile is first leased. H&rblock online SECTION 3. H&rblock online SCOPE . H&rblock online 01 The limitations on depreciation deductions in section 4. H&rblock online 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. H&rblock online . H&rblock online 02 The tables in section 4. H&rblock online 03 of this revenue procedure apply to leased passenger automobiles for which the lease term begins during calendar year 2009. H&rblock online 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&rblock online APPLICATION . H&rblock online 01 In General. H&rblock online (1) Limitations on depreciation deductions for certain automobiles. H&rblock online 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. H&rblock online 02(2) of this revenue procedure. H&rblock online (2) Inclusions in income of lessees of passenger automobiles. H&rblock online 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. H&rblock online 03 of this revenue procedure. H&rblock online In addition, the taxpayer must follow the procedures of § 1. H&rblock online 280F-7(a). H&rblock online . H&rblock online 02 Limitations on Depreciation Deductions for Certain Automobiles. H&rblock online (1) Amount of the inflation adjustment. H&rblock online (a) Passenger automobiles (other than trucks or vans). H&rblock online 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&rblock online 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&rblock online The new car component of the CPI was 115. H&rblock online 2 for October 1987 and 134. H&rblock online 837 for October 2008. H&rblock online The October 2008 index exceeded the October 1987 index by 19. H&rblock online 637. H&rblock online 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. H&rblock online 05 percent (19. H&rblock online 637/115. H&rblock online 2 x 100%). H&rblock online This adjustment is applicable to all passenger automobiles (other than trucks and vans) that are first placed in service in calendar year 2009. H&rblock online The dollar limitations in § 280F(a) therefore must be multiplied by a factor of 0. H&rblock online 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. H&rblock online (b) Trucks and vans. H&rblock online 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. H&rblock online The new truck component of the CPI was 112. H&rblock online 4 for October 1987 and 133. H&rblock online 640 for October 2008. H&rblock online The October 2008 index exceeded the October 1987 index by 21. H&rblock online 24. H&rblock online The Service has, therefore, determined that the automobile price inflation adjustment for 2009 for trucks and vans is 18. H&rblock online 90 percent (21. H&rblock online 24/112. H&rblock online 4 x 100%). H&rblock online This adjustment is applicable to all trucks and vans that are first placed in service in calendar year 2009. H&rblock online The dollar limitations in § 280F(a) therefore must be multiplied by a factor of 0. H&rblock online 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. H&rblock online (2) Amount of the limitation. H&rblock online 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. H&rblock online 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. H&rblock online 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. H&rblock online Use Table 3 for 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 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 truck or van that is eligible qualified property to which the § 168(k)(4) election applies. H&rblock online Use Table 4 for 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.

  • Beware of IRS' 2010 'Dirty Dozen' Tax Scams
    The Internal Revenue Service issued its 2010 "dirty dozen" list of tax scams, including schemes involving return preparer fraud, hiding income offshore and phishing. "Taxpayers should be wary of anyone peddling scams that seem too good to be true," IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman said. "The IRS fights fraud by pursuing taxpayers who hide income abroad and by ensuring taxpayers get competent, ethical service from qualified professionals at home in the U.S."
  • Beware of Tax Scams
    The IRS wants taxpayers to be aware of tax scams. These scams are illegal and can lead to problems for taxpayers including significant penalties, interest and possible criminal prosecution. The schemes take several shapes, ranging from promises of large tax refunds to illegal ways of 'untaxing' yourself. Here are three important guidelines to keep in mind.
  • Electronic Federal Tax Payment System Cited in New E-mail Scam
    The Internal Revenue Service is warning taxpayers to be on the lookout for a new e-mail scam that uses the Treasury Department's Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) as a hook to lure individuals into disclosing their personal information. The new e-mail scam, fraught with grammatical errors and typos, looks like a page from IRS.gov and claims to be from the "IRS Antifraud Comission" (sic), a fictitious group. The e-mail claims someone has enrolled the taxpayer's credit card in EFTPS bank account. The e-mail claims money was lost and "remaining founds" (sic) are blocked. Recipients are asked to click on a link that will help them recover their funds, but the subsequent site asks for personal information that the thieves could use to steal the taxpayer's identity.
  • Fraudulent E-Mail Purported to be Representing Congressional Interests
    The fraudulent email is sent from infowhitehouse3@ig.com.br. The author of the email claims to be representing several U.S. Legislative committees including the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, Senate Committee on Appropriations, House Committee on Appropriations, and the House Committee of International Relations. This e-mail is a hoax. Do not follow the provided link.
  • FTC Cautions Consumers About Tax and Rebate Scams
    The Federal Trade Commission cautions consumers looking forward to rebate checks from the government that they may be targets of scammers out to steal their identity. The schemes work like this: consumers get a call or an e-mail claiming to be from the IRS, the Social Security Administration, or some other government agency, and claiming to need some bit of personal information to process the rebate check. Consumers may be asked to provide their social security number, bank account number, or another piece of personal information that a skillful crook can use to commit identity theft.
  • IRS Alerts Public to New Identity Theft Scams
    The IRS reminds consumers to avoid identity theft scams that use the IRS name, logo or web site in an attempt to convince taxpayers that the scam is a genuine communication from the IRS. Scammers may use other federal agency names, such as the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
  • IRS Warns of Phony e-Mails Claiming to Come from the IRS
    The Internal Revenue Service alerts taxpayers about Internet scams in which fraudulent e-mails are sent that appear to be from the IRS. The e-mails direct the consumer to a Web link that requests personal and financial information, such as Social Security, bank account or credit card numbers. The practice of tricking victims into revealing private personal and financial information over the Internet is known as 'phishing' for information.
  • IRS Warns Taxpayers of New E-mail Scams
    The Internal Revenue Service alterts taxpayers to the latest versions of an e- mail scam intended to fool people into believing they are under investigation by the agency's Criminal Investigation division.
  • Late Tax Scam Discovered; Free File Users Reminded to Use IRS.gov
    The IRS warns of a new tax scam on the Internet that lures taxpayers into filing tax information on a site masquerading as a member of the Free File Alliance. The IRS reminded taxpayers the only place to access the Free File program is through the official IRS.gov Web site.
  • OnGuardOnline.gov Urges Taxpayers to Contact the IRS If They Suspect Tax-Related Identity Theft
    OnGuardOnline.gov is informing consumers that an unexpected message from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) could be a warning sign that their Social Security number is being misused by an identity thief.
  • Simple Steps Can Prevent Tax Scams as Private Debt Collection Begins
    As the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) begins its private debt collection initiative, the tax agency reminds taxpayers there are several simple steps that can provide protection against scam artists. Scamsters try a variety of tricks to impersonate the IRS in hopes of tricking taxpayers into divulging personal or financial information or even conning people out of cash. Scam artists try to impersonate the IRS in person, by phone, by e-mail and over the Internet.
  • Some Telephone Tax Refund Requests May Be Too High; IRS Will Deny Improper Requests
    TheIRS reported that early filings show some individual taxpayers have requested large and apparently improper amounts for the special telephone tax refund. The IRS is investigating potential abuses in this area and will take prompt action against taxpayers who claim improper refund amounts and the return preparers who help them.
  • Tax Scammers Are Waiting to Take Your Money
    Tax-related scams are on the rise, according to consumer complaints tracked by the National Consumers League's Fraud Center. Reports of tax scams from consumers nearly quadrupled in 2007 from the year before, and the trend seems to be continuing into 2008. This time of year - and with the economy in the shape it's currently in - crooks see vulnerable prey in consumers feeling the squeeze at tax time

H&rblock online 6. H&rblock online   Estimated Tax Table of Contents Who Must Make Estimated Tax Payments Estimated tax is a method used to pay tax on income that is not subject to withholding. H&rblock online This income includes self-employment income, interest, dividends, alimony, rent, gains from the sale of assets, prizes, and awards. H&rblock online Income tax generally is withheld from pensions and annuity payments you receive. H&rblock online However, if the tax withheld from your pension (or other) income is not enough, you may have to pay estimated tax. H&rblock online If you do not pay enough tax through withholding, by making estimated tax payments, or both, you may be charged a penalty. H&rblock online Who Must Make Estimated Tax Payments If you had a tax liability for 2013, you may have to pay estimated tax for 2014. H&rblock online In most cases, you must pay estimated tax for 2014 if both of the following apply. H&rblock online You expect to owe at least $1,000 in tax for 2014, after subtracting your withholding and refundable credits. H&rblock online You expect your withholding and refundable credits to be less than the smaller of: 90% of the tax to be shown on your 2014 tax return, or 100% of the tax shown on your 2013 tax return. H&rblock online The 2013 tax return must cover all 12 months. H&rblock online If all of your income will be subject to income tax withholding, you probably do not need to make estimated tax payments.
