Return, later. 1040ez for 2011 Depreciation of Car If you used the actual car expense method to figure your deduction for a car you own and use in your business (or as an employee), you generally can claim a depreciation deduction. 1040ez for 2011 However, there is a limit on the depreciation deduction you can take for your car each year. 1040ez for 2011 See Depreciation Limit later. 1040ez for 2011 Special Depreciation Allowance The new law allows you to claim a special depreciation allowance. 1040ez for 2011 This special allowance is a deduction equal to 30% of the depreciable basis of qualified property. 1040ez for 2011 You figure the amount of the special depreciation allowance after any section 179 deduction you choose to claim, but before figuring your regular depreciation deduction under the Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS). 1040ez for 2011 See Depreciation Deduction under Actual Car Expenses in chapter 4 of Publication 463 for information about MACRS. 1040ez for 2011 You can claim the special depreciation allowance only for the year the qualified property is placed in service. 1040ez for 2011 Qualified property. 1040ez for 2011 Qualified property includes a car (any four-wheeled vehicle, including a truck or van not more than 6,000 pounds, that is made primarily for use on public streets, roads, and highways) that meets all of the following

buy the car was in effect before September 11, 2001. 1040ez for 2011 ) You began using it for business after September 10, 2001, and used it more than 50% in a qualified business use. 1040ez for 2011 Example. 1040ez for 2011 Bob bought a new car on October 15, 2001, for $20,000 and placed it in service immediately, using it 75% for business. 1040ez for 2011 Bob's car is qualified property. 1040ez for 2011 Bob chooses not to take a section 179 deduction for the car. 1040ez for 2011 He does claim the new special depreciation allowance. 1040ez for 2011 Bob first must figure the car's depreciable basis, which is $15,000 ($20,000 × . 1040ez for 2011 75). 1040ez for 2011 He then figures the special depreciation allowance of $4,500 ($15,000 × . 1040ez for 2011 30). 1040ez for 2011 The remaining depreciable basis of $10,500 ($15,000 - $4,500) is depreciated using MACRS (200% declining balance method, half-year convention) and results in a deduction of $2,100 ($10,500 × . 1040ez for 2011 20), for a total depreciation deduction for 2001 of $6,600 ($4,500 + $2,100). 1040ez for 2011 However, Bob's depreciation deduction is limited to $5,745 ($7,660 × . 1040ez for 2011 75), as discussed next.

depreciation allowance. 1040ez for 2011 The limit is increased to $23,080 if the car is an electric car. 1040ez for 2011 The section 179 deduction is treated as depreciation for purposes of this limit. 1040ez for 2011 If you use a car less than 100% in your business or work, the limit is $7,660 (or $23,080 for an electric car) multiplied by the percentage of business and investment use during the year. 1040ez for 2011 For cars that do not qualify for (or for which you choose not to claim) the special depreciation allowance, the limit remains $3,060 ($9,280 for electric cars). 1040ez for 2011 Amended Return If you filed your 2001 calendar year return before June 1, 2002, and did not claim the new special depreciation allowance for a qualified car, you can claim it by filing an amended return on Form 1040X, Amended U. 1040ez for 2011 S. 1040ez for 2011 Individual Income Tax Return, by April 15, 2003. 1040ez for 2011 At the top of the Form 1040X, print “Filed pursuant to Revenue Procedure 2002–33. 1040ez for 2011 ” If you are an employee, attach Form 2106, Employee Business Expenses (revised March 2002). 1040ez for 2011 If you are self-employed, attach Form 4562, Depreciation and Amortization (revised March 2002). 1040ez for 2011 Or, you can claim the special depreciation allowance by filing Form 3115, Application for Change in Accounting Method, with your 2002 return. 1040ez for 2011 For details, see Revenue Procedure 2002–33. 1040ez for 2011 (But, filing Form 1040X for 2001 enables you to claim the special allowance earlier than attaching Form 3115 to your 2002 return. 1040ez for 2011 ) You cannot claim the special depreciation allowance on an amended return (or by using Form 3115) if you made, or are treated as having made, the election not to claim it described later. 1040ez for 2011 Example. 1040ez for 2011 The facts are the same as in the previous example except that Bob filed his original 2001 income tax return on April 15, 2002, and claimed a $3,000 ($20,000 x . 1040ez for 2011 75 x . 1040ez for 2011 20) depreciation deduction for his new car using MACRS. 1040ez for 2011 Bob now wishes to claim the special depreciation allowance for his new car on an amended 2001 return. 1040ez for 2011 Bob, who is an employee, files Form 1040X, by April 15, 2003, with an updated Form 2106 (revised March 2002) attached, increasing his total depreciation deduction to $5,745, as figured in the earlier example. 1040ez for 2011 Bob's new filled-in Form 2106 is shown later. 1040ez for 2011 Election Not To Claim Special Allowance You can elect not to claim the special depreciation allowance for a car by making a statement attached to, or written on, your return indicating that you are electing not to claim the special depreciation allowance for 5-year property. 1040ez for 2011 As a general rule, you must make this election by the due date (including extensions) of your return. 1040ez for 2011 You can have an automatic extension of 6 months from the due date of your return (excluding extensions) to make the election with an amended return. 1040ez for 2011 To get this extension, you must have filed your original return by the due date (including extensions). 1040ez for 2011 At the top of the statement, print “Filed pursuant to section 301. 1040ez for 2011 9100–2. 1040ez for 2011 ” If you elect not to claim the special depreciation allowance for a car, you cannot claim it for any other 5-year property placed in service during the same year. 1040ez for 2011 Unless you elect (or are treated as electing) not to claim the special depreciation allowance, you must reduce the car's adjusted basis by the amount of the allowance, even if the allowance was not claimed. 1040ez for 2011 Deemed election for return filed before June 1, 2002. 1040ez for 2011 If you did not make the election not to claim the special depreciation allowance in the time and manner described above, you will still be treated as electing not to claim it if all of the following apply. 1040ez for 2011 You filed your 2001 return before June 1, 2002. 1040ez for 2011 You claimed depreciation on your return but did not claim the special depreciation allowance. 1040ez for 2011 You did not file an amended 2001 return by April 15, 2003, or a Form 3115 with your 2002 return, to claim the special depreciation allowance. 1040ez for 2011

Why is CI Involved in Identity Theft?
IRS Criminal Investigation (CI) detects and investigates tax fraud and other financial fraud, including fraud related to identity theft. Identity theft is most likely to occur in our Questionable Refund Program (QRP) area where individual identities are stolen with the intent to file false returns claiming tax refunds. Additional areas involving identity theft include employment tax cases, abusive return preparer schemes, and narcotics and money laundering investigations.
CI has four Scheme Development Centers (SDCs) across the country whose primary mission is detecting refund fraud. These SDCs have uncovered numerous identity theft related schemes. These schemes are forwarded to one of CI’s 26 field offices for criminal investigation and/or to our civil counterparts to resolve victim accounts. After CI completes the initial evidence gathering of our investigations, we recommend prosecution of refund fraud, to include identity theft, when appropriate, to United States Attorney’s Offices nationwide. Specifically, we recommend Title 18 U.S.C. §1028, which is commonly referred to as the Identity Fraud Statute, when the evidence supports it. Per IRS policy (Internal Revenue Manual section 126.96.36.199.11.1), the identity fraud statute is not intended to be a stand-alone violation, but rather used as a companion charge when it enhances the overall substantive tax, money laundering, and/or conspiracy charges. As a result, CI generally pairs Title 18 U.S.C. §1028 with other substantive tax or tax-related charges.
In addition to detecting and investigating identity theft-related refund fraud, Criminal Investigation participates in the Department of Justice’s Identity Theft Interagency Working Group. Our field offices also participate with other federal, state and local law enforcement agencies on joint investigative efforts involving identity theft.
