Hnr block taxes Losses Generally, you may deduct losses to your home, household goods, and motor vehicles on your federal income tax return. Hnr block taxes However, you may not deduct a casualty or theft loss that is covered by insurance unless you filed a timely insurance claim for reimbursement. Hnr block taxes Any reimbursement you receive will reduce the loss. Hnr block taxes If you did not file an insurance claim, you may deduct only the part of the loss that was not covered by insurance. Hnr block taxes Amount of loss. Hnr block taxes   You figure the amount of your loss using the following steps. Hnr block taxes Determine your cost or other basis in the property before the casualty or theft. Hnr block taxes Determine the decrease in fair market value (FMV) of the property as a result of the casualty or theft. Hnr block taxes (The decrease in FMV is the difference between the property's value immediately before and immediately after the casualty or theft. Hnr block taxes ) From the smaller of the amounts you determined in (1) and (2), subtract any insurance or other reimbursement you received or expect to receive. Hnr block taxes Apply the deduction limits, discussed later, to determine the amount of your deductible loss. Hnr block taxes Cost or other basis. Hnr block taxes   Cost or other basis usually means original cost plus improvements. Hnr block taxes If you did not acquire the property by purchasing it, your basis is determined as discussed in Publication 551, Basis of Assets. Hnr block taxes 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, refer to the information provided by the executor or see Publication 4895, Tax Treatment of Property Acquired From a Decedent Dying in 2010. Hnr block taxes Fair market value. Hnr block taxes   FMV 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. Hnr block taxes When filling out Schedules 1 through 20, you need to know the FMV of the property immediately before and immediately after the disaster, casualty, or theft. Hnr block taxes Separate computations. Hnr block taxes   Generally, if a single casualty or theft involves more than one item of property, you must figure the loss on each item separately. Hnr block taxes Then combine the losses to determine the total loss from that casualty or theft. Hnr block taxes Exception for personal-use real property. Hnr block taxes   In figuring a casualty loss on personal-use real property, the entire property (including any improvements, such as buildings, trees, and shrubs) is treated as one item. Hnr block taxes Figure the loss using the smaller of the following. Hnr block taxes The decrease in FMV of the entire property. Hnr block taxes The adjusted basis of the entire property. Hnr block taxes Deduction limits. Hnr block taxes   After you have figured the amount of your loss, as discussed earlier, you must figure how much of the loss you can deduct. Hnr block taxes You do this on Form 4684, section A. Hnr block taxes If the loss was to property for your personal use or your family's, there are two limits on the amount you can deduct for your casualty or theft loss. Hnr block taxes You must reduce each casualty or theft loss by $100 ($100 rule). Hnr block taxes You must further reduce the total of all your losses by 10% of your adjusted gross income (10% rule). Hnr block taxes More information. Hnr block taxes   For more information about the deduction limits, see Publication 547. Hnr block taxes When your loss is deductible. Hnr block taxes   You can generally deduct a casualty or disaster area loss only in the tax year in which the casualty or disaster occurred. Hnr block taxes You can generally deduct a theft loss only in the year you discovered your property was stolen. Hnr block taxes However, you can choose to deduct disaster area losses on your return for the year immediately before the year of the disaster if the President has declared your area a federal disaster area.
