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