Irs forms 1040 It is the name given to tax rules for getting back (recovering) through depreciation deductions the cost of property used in a trade or business or to produce income. Irs forms 1040 These rules are mandatory and generally apply to tangible property placed in service after 1980 and before 1987. Irs forms 1040 If you placed property in service during this period, you must continue to figure your depreciation under ACRS. Irs forms 1040 If you used listed property placed in service after June 18, 1984, less than 50% for business in 1995, see Predominant Use Test in chapter 3. Irs forms 1040 Listed property includes cars, other means of transportation, and certain computers. Irs forms 1040 Any additions or improvements placed in service after 1986, including any components of a building (such as plumbing, wiring, storm windows, etc. Irs forms 1040 ), are depreciated using MACRS, discussed in chapter 3 of Publication 946. Irs forms 1040 It does not matter that the underlying property is depreciated under ACRS or one of the other methods. Irs forms 1040 ACRS Defined ACRS consists of accelerated depreciation methods and an alternate ACRS method that could have been elected. Irs forms 1040 The alternate ACRS method used a recovery percentage based on a modified straight line method. Irs forms 1040 The law prescribes fixed percentages to be uses for each class of property. Irs forms 1040 Property depreciable under ACRS is called recovery property. Irs forms 1040 The recovery class of property determines the recovery period. Irs forms 1040 Generally, the class life of property places it in a 3-year, 5-year, 10-year, 15-year, 18-year, or 19-year recovery class. Irs forms 1040 Under ACRS, the prescribed percentages are used to recover the unadjusted basis of recovery property. Irs forms 1040 To figure a depreciation deduction, you multiply the prescribed percentage for the recovery class by the unadjusted basis of the recovery property. Irs forms 1040 You must continue to figure your depreciation under ACRS for property placed in service after 1980 and before 1987. Irs forms 1040 For property you placed in service after 1986, you must use MACRS, discussed in chapter 3 of Publication 946. Irs forms 1040 What Can and Cannot Be Depreciated Under ACRS ACRS applies to most depreciable tangible property placed in service after 1980 and before 1987. Irs forms 1040 It includes new or used and real or personal property. Irs forms 1040 The property must be for use in a trade or business or for the production of income. Irs forms 1040 Property you acquired before 1981 or after 1986 is not ACRS recovery property. Irs forms 1040 For information on depreciating property acquired before 1981, see chapter 2. Irs forms 1040 For information on depreciating property acquired after 1986, see chapter 3 of Publication 946. Irs forms 1040 Recovery Property Recovery property under ACRS is tangible depreciable property placed in service after 1980 and before 1987. Irs forms 1040 It generally includes new or used property that you acquired after 1980 and before 1987 for use in your trade or business or for the production of income. Irs forms 1040 Nonrecovery Property You cannot use ACRS for property you placed in service before 1981 or after 1986. Irs forms 1040 Nonrecovery property also includes: Intangible property, Property you elected to exclude from ACRS that is properly depreciated under a method of depreciation that is not based on a term of years, Certain public utility property, and Certain property acquired and excluded from ACRS because of the antichurning rules. Irs forms 1040 Intangible property. Irs forms 1040   Intangible property is not depreciated under ACRS. Irs forms 1040 Property depreciated under methods not expressed in a term of years. Irs forms 1040   Certain property depreciated under a method not expressed in a term of years is not depreciated under ACRS. Irs forms 1040 This included any property: If you made an irrevocable election to exclude such property, and In the first year that you could have claimed depreciation, you properly used the unit-of-production method or any method of depreciation not expressed in a term of years (not including the retirement-replacement-betterment method). Irs forms 1040 Public utility property. Irs forms 1040   Public utility property for which the taxpayer does not use a normalization method of accounting is excluded from ACRS and is subject to depreciation under a special rule. Irs forms 1040 Additions or improvements to ACRS property after 1986. Irs forms 1040   Any additions or improvements placed in service after 1986, including any components of a building (plumbing, wiring, storm windows, etc. Irs forms 1040 ) are depreciated using MACRS, discussed in chapter 3 of Publication 946. Irs forms 1040 It does not matter that the underlying property is depreciated under ACRS or one of the other methods. Irs forms 1040 How To Figure the Deduction After you determine that your property can be depreciated under ACRS, you are ready to figure your deduction. Irs forms 1040 Because the conventions are built into the percentage table rates, you only need to know the following: The unadjusted basis of your recovery property, The classes of recovery property, The recovery periods, and Whether to use the prescribed percentages based on accelerated methods or percentages based on using the alternate ACRS method. Irs forms 1040 Unadjusted Basis To figure your ACRS deduction, you multiply the unadjusted basis in your recovery property by its applicable percentage for the year. Irs forms 1040 Unadjusted basis is the same amount you would use to figure gain on a sale, but it is figured without taking into account any depreciation taken in earlier years. Irs forms 1040 However, reduce your original basis by the amount of amortization taken on the property and by any section 179 deduction claimed as discussed in chapter 2 of Publication 946. Irs forms 1040 If you buy property, your unadjusted basis is usually its cost minus any amortized amount and minus any section 179 deduction elected. Irs forms 1040 If you acquire property in some other way, such as by inheriting it, getting it as a gift, or building it yourself, you figure your unadjusted basis under other rules. Irs forms 1040 See Publication 551. Irs forms 1040 Classes of Recovery Property All recovery property under ACRS is in one of the following classes. Irs forms 1040 The class for your property was determined when you began to depreciate it. Irs forms 1040 3-Year Property 3-year property includes automobiles, light-duty trucks (actual unloaded weight less than 13,000 pounds), and tractor units for use over-the-road. Irs forms 1040 Race horses over 2 years old when placed in service are 3-year property. Irs forms 1040 Any other horses over 12 years old when you placed them in service are also included in the 3-year property class. Irs forms 1040 The ACRS percentages for 3-year recovery property are: Recovery Period Percentage 1st year 25% 2nd year 38% 3rd year 37% If you used the percentages above to depreciate your 3-year recovery property, your property, except for certain passenger automobiles, is fully depreciated. Irs forms 1040 You cannot claim depreciation for this property after 1988. Irs forms 1040 5-Year Property 5-year property includes computers, copiers, and equipment, such as office furniture and fixtures. Irs forms 1040 It also includes single purpose agricultural or horticultural structures and petroleum storage facilities (other than buildings and their structural components). Irs forms 1040 The ACRS percentages for 5-year recovery property are: Recovery period Percentage 1st year 15% 2nd year 22% 3rd through 5th year 21% If you used the percentages above to depreciate your 5-year recovery property, it is fully depreciated. Irs forms 1040 You cannot claim depreciation for this property after 1990. Irs forms 1040 10-Year Property 10-year property includes certain real property such as theme-park structures and certain public utility property. Irs forms 1040 Manufactured homes (including mobile homes) and railroad tank cars are also 10-year property. Irs forms 1040 You do not treat a building, and its structural components, as 10-year property by reason of a change in use after you placed the property in service. Irs forms 1040 For example, a building (15-year real property) that was placed in service in 1981 and was converted to a theme-park structure in 1986 remains 15-year real property. Irs forms 1040 The ACRS percentages for 10-year recovery property are: Recovery Period Percentage 1st year 8% 2nd year 14% 3rd year 12% 4th through 6th year 10% 7th through 10th year 9% If you used the percentages above, you cannot claim depreciation for this property after 1995. Irs forms 1040 Example. Irs forms 1040 On April 21, 1986, you bought and placed in service a new mobile home for $26,000 to be used as rental property. Irs forms 1040 You paid $10,000 cash and signed a note for $16,000 giving you an unadjusted basis of $26,000. Irs forms 1040 On June 8, 1986, you bought and placed in service a used mobile home for use as rental property at a total cost of $11,500. Irs forms 1040 The total unadjusted basis of your 10-year recovery property placed in service in 1986 was $37,500 ($26,000 + $11,500). Irs forms 1040 Your ACRS deduction was $3,000 (8% × $37,500). Irs forms 1040 In 1987, your ACRS deduction was $5,250 (14% × $37,500). Irs forms 1040 In 1988, your ACRS deduction was $4,500 (12% × $37,500). Irs forms 1040 In 1989, 1990, and 1991, your ACRS deduction was $3,750 (10% × $37,500). Irs forms 1040 In 1992, 1993, 1994, and 1995 your deduction for each year is $3,375 (9% × $37,500). Irs forms 1040 15-Year Real Property 15-year real property is real property that is recovery property placed in service before March 16, 1984. Irs forms 1040 It includes all real property, such as buildings, other than that designated as 5-year or 10-year property. Irs forms 1040 Unlike the 3-, 5-, or 10-year classes of property, the percentages for 15-year real property depend on when you placed the property in service during your tax year. Irs forms 1040 You could group 15-year real property by month and year placed in service. Irs forms 1040 In Table 1, at the end of this publication in the Appendix, find the month in your tax year that you placed the property in service in your trade or business or for the production of income. Irs forms 1040 You use the percentages listed under that month for each year of the recovery period to determine your depreciation deduction each year. Irs forms 1040 Example. Irs forms 1040 On March 5, 1984, you placed an apartment building in service in your business. Irs forms 1040 It is 15-year real property. Irs forms 1040 After subtracting the value of the land, your unadjusted basis in the building is $250,000. Irs forms 1040 You use the calendar year as your tax year. Irs forms 1040 March is the third month of your tax year. Irs forms 1040 Your ACRS deduction for 1984 was $25,000 (10% × $250,000). Irs forms 1040 For 1985, the percentage for the third month of the second year of the recovery period is 11%. Irs forms 1040 Your deduction was $27,500 (11% × $250,000). Irs forms 1040 For the third, fourth, and fifth years of the recovery period (1986, 1987, and 1988), the percentages are 9%, 8%, and 7%. Irs forms 1040 For 1989 through 1992, the percentage for the third month is 6%. Irs forms 1040 Your deduction each year is $15,000 (6% × $250,000). Irs forms 1040 For 1993, 1994, and 1995, the percentage for the third month is 5%. Irs forms 1040 Your depreciation deduction is $12,500 (5% × $250,000) for 1993, 1994, and 1995. Irs forms 1040 Low-Income Housing Low-income housing that was assigned a 15-year recovery period under ACRS includes the following types of property: Federally assisted housing projects where the mortgage is insured under section 221(d)(3) or 236 of the National Housing Act, or housing financed or assisted by direct loan or tax abatement under similar provisions of state or local laws. Irs forms 1040 Low-income rental housing for which a depreciation deduction for rehabilitation expenditures is allowed. Irs forms 1040 Low-income rental housing held for occupancy by families or individuals eligible to receive subsidies under section 8 of the United States Housing Act of 1937, as amended, or under the provisions of state or local laws that authorize similar subsidies for low-income families. Irs forms 1040 Housing financed or assisted by direct loan or insured under Title V of the Housing Act of 1949. Irs forms 1040 The ACRS percentages for low-income housing real property, like the regular 15-year real property percentages, depend on when you placed the property in service. Irs forms 1040 Find the month in your tax year in Table 2 or 3 at the end of this publication in the Appendix that you first placed the property in service as rental housing. Irs forms 1040 Use the percentages listed under that month for each year of the recovery period. Irs forms 1040 Table 2 shows percentages for low-income housing placed in service before May 9, 1985. Irs forms 1040 Table 3 shows percentages for low-income housing placed in service after May 8, 1985, and before 1987. Irs forms 1040 Example. Irs forms 1040 In May 1986, you acquired and placed in service a house that qualified as low-income rental housing under item 3) of the above listing. Irs forms 1040 You use the calendar year as your tax year. Irs forms 1040 You use Table C–3 because the property was placed in service after May 8, 1985. Irs forms 1040 Your unadjusted basis for the property, not including the land, was $59,000. Irs forms 1040 Your deduction for 1986 through 2001 is shown in the following table. Irs forms 1040 Year Rate Deduction 1986 8. Irs forms 1040 9% $5,251 1987 12. Irs forms 1040 1% 7,139 1988 10. Irs forms 1040 5% 6,195 1989 9. Irs forms 1040 1% 5,369 1990 7.

Irs forms 1040 5% 885 18-Year Real Property 18-year real property is real property that is recovery property placed in service after March 15, 1984, and before May 9, 1985. Irs forms 1040 It includes real property, such as buildings, other than that designated as 5-year, 10-year, 15-year real property, or low-income housing. Irs forms 1040 The ACRS percentages for 18-year real property depend on when you placed the property in service in your trade or business or for the production of income during your tax year. Irs forms 1040 There are also tables for 18-year real property in the Appendix. Irs forms 1040 Table 4 shows the percentages for 18-year real property you placed in service after June 22, 1984, and before May 9, 1985. Irs forms 1040 Table 5 is for 18-year real property placed in service after March 15, 1984, and before June 23, 1984. Irs forms 1040 Find the month in your tax year that you placed the property in service in a trade or business or for the production of income. Irs forms 1040 Use the percentages listed under that month for each year of the recovery period. Irs forms 1040 Example. Irs forms 1040 On April 28, 1985, you bought and placed in service a rental house. Irs forms 1040 The house, not including the land, cost $95,000. Irs forms 1040 This is your unadjusted basis for the house. Irs forms 1040 You use the calendar year as your tax year. Irs forms 1040 Because the house was placed in service after June 22, 1984, and before May 9, 1985, it is 18-year real property. Irs forms 1040 You use Table 4 to figure your deduction for the house. Irs forms 1040 April is the fourth month of your tax year. Irs forms 1040 Your deduction for 1985 through 2003 is shown in the following table. Irs forms 1040 Year Rate Deduction 1985 7. Irs forms 1040 0% $6,650 1986 9. Irs forms 1040 0% 8,550 1987 8. Irs forms 1040 0% 7,600 1988 7. Irs forms 1040 0% 6,650 1989 7. Irs forms 1040 0% 6,650 1990 6. Irs forms 1040 0% 5,700 1991 5.

Irs forms 1040 0% 950 19-Year Real Property 19-year real property is real property that is recovery property placed in service after May 8, 1985, and before 1987. Irs forms 1040 It includes all real property, other than that designated as 5-year, 10-year, 15-year, or 18-year real property, or low-income housing. Irs forms 1040 The ACRS percentages for 19-year real property depend on when you placed the property in service in a trade or business or for the production of income during your tax year. Irs forms 1040 Table 6 shows the percentages for 19-year real property. Irs forms 1040 You find the month in your tax year that you placed the property in service. Irs forms 1040 You use the percentages listed under that month for each year of the recovery period. Irs forms 1040 Recovery Periods Each item of recovery property is assigned to a class of property. Irs forms 1040 The classes of recovery property establish the recovery periods over which the unadjusted basis of items in a class is recovered. Irs forms 1040 The classes of property are: 3-Year property 5-Year property 10-Year property 15-Year real property Low-income housing 18-Year real property 19-Year real property Alternate ACRS Method (Modified Straight Line Method) ACRS provides an alternate ACRS method that could be elected. Irs forms 1040 This alternate ACRS method uses a recovery percentage based on a modified straight line method. Irs forms 1040 This alternate ACRS method generally uses percentages other than those from the tables. Irs forms 1040 If you elected the alternate ACRS method, you determine the recovery period by using the following schedule. Irs forms 1040 This schedule is for other than 18- and 19-year real property and low-income housing: In the case of: You could have elected a recovery period of: 3-year property 3, 5, or 12 years 5-year property 5, 12, or 25 years 15-year real property 15, 35, or 45 years Percentages. Irs forms 1040   The straight-line percentages for the alternate ACRS method are: Recovery Period Percentage 5 years 20. Irs forms 1040 00% 10 years 10. Irs forms 1040 00% 12 years 8. Irs forms 1040 333% 15 years 6. Irs forms 1040 667% 25 years 4. Irs forms 1040 00% 35 years 2. Irs forms 1040 857%   You apply the percentage to the unadjusted basis(defined earlier) of the property to figure your ACRS deduction. Irs forms 1040 There are tables for 18- and 19-year real property later in this publication in the Appendix. Irs forms 1040 For 15-year real property, see 15-year real property, later. Irs forms 1040 3-, 5-, and 10-year property. Irs forms 1040   If you elected to use an alternate recovery percentage, you have to use the same recovery percentage for all property in that class that you placed in service in that tax year. Irs forms 1040 This applies throughout the recovery period you selected. Irs forms 1040 Half-year convention. Irs forms 1040   If you elected the alternate method, only a half-year of depreciation was deducted for the year you placed the property in service. Irs forms 1040 This applied regardless of when in the tax year you placed the property in service. Irs forms 1040 For each of the remaining years in the recovery period, you take a full year's deduction. Irs forms 1040 If you hold the property for the entire recovery period, a half-year of depreciation is allowable for the year following the end of the recovery period. Irs forms 1040 Example. Irs forms 1040 You operate a small upholstery business. Irs forms 1040 On March 19, 1986, you bought and placed in service a $13,000 light-duty panel truck to be used in your business and a $500 electric saw. Irs forms 1040 You elected to use the alternate ACRS method. Irs forms 1040 You did not elect to take a section 179 deduction. Irs forms 1040 You decided to recover the cost of the truck, which is 3-year recovery property, over 5 years. Irs forms 1040 The saw is 5-year property, but you decided to recover its cost over 12 years. Irs forms 1040 For 1986, your ACRS deduction reflected the half-year convention. Irs forms 1040 In the first year, you deducted half of the amount determined for a full year.

Irs forms 1040 67       In 1991, you take a half-year of depreciation for the truck and a full year of depreciation for the saw. Irs forms 1040 Your ACRS deduction for 1991 is as follows: Light-duty truck   5 years straight line = 20% 20% ÷ $13,000 = $2,600 Half-year convention -½ of $2,600= $1,300.

Irs forms 1040 67       The truck is fully depreciated after 1991. Irs forms 1040 You take a full year of depreciation for the saw for the years 1992 through 1997. Irs forms 1040 Your ACRS deduction for each of those years is as follows: Electric saw     12 years straight line = 8. Irs forms 1040 333% 8. Irs forms 1040 333% ÷ $500 = $41.

Irs forms 1040 15-year real property. Irs forms 1040   Under ACRS, you could also elect to use the alternate ACRS method for 15-year real property. Irs forms 1040 The alternate ACRS method allows you to depreciate your 15-year real property using the straight line ACRS method over the alternate recovery periods of 15, 35, or 45 years. Irs forms 1040 If you selected a 15-year recovery period, you use the percentage (6. Irs forms 1040 667%) from the schedule above. Irs forms 1040 You prorate this percentage for the number of months the property was in service in the first year. Irs forms 1040 If you selected a 35- or 45-year recovery period, you use either Table 11 or 15. Irs forms 1040 Alternate periods for 18-year real property. Irs forms 1040   For 18-year real property, the alternate recovery periods are 18, 35, or 45 years. Irs forms 1040 The percentages for 18-year real property under the alternate method are in Tables 7, 8, 10, 11, 14, and 15 in the Appendix. Irs forms 1040 There are two tables for each alternate recovery period. Irs forms 1040 One table shows the percentage for property placed in service after June 22, 1984. Irs forms 1040 The other table has the percentages for property placed in service after March 15, 1984, and before June 23, 1984. Irs forms 1040 Alternate periods for 19-year real property. Irs forms 1040   For 19-year real property, the alternate recovery periods are 19, 35, or 45 years. Irs forms 1040 If you selected a 19-year recovery period, use Table 9 to determine your deduction. Irs forms 1040 If you select a 35- or 45-year recovery period, use either Table 13 or 14. Irs forms 1040 Example. Irs forms 1040 You placed in service an apartment building on August 3, 1986. Irs forms 1040 The building is 19-year real property. Irs forms 1040 The sales contract allocated $300,000 to the building and $100,000 to the land. Irs forms 1040 You use the calendar year as your tax year. Irs forms 1040 You chose the alternate ACRS method over a recovery period of 35 years. Irs forms 1040 For 1986, you figure your ACRS deduction usingTable 13. Irs forms 1040 August is the eighth month of your tax year. Irs forms 1040 The percentage from Table 13 for the eighth month is 1. Irs forms 1040 1%. Irs forms 1040 Your deduction was $3,300 ($300,000 ÷ 1. Irs forms 1040 1%). Irs forms 1040 The deduction rate from ACRS Table 13 for years 2 through 20 is 2. Irs forms 1040 9% so that your deduction in 1987 through 2005 is $8,700 ($300,000 ÷ 2. Irs forms 1040 9%). Irs forms 1040 Alternate periods for low-income housing. Irs forms 1040   For low-income housing, the alternate recovery periods are 15, 35, or 45 years. Irs forms 1040 If you selected a 15-year period for this property, use 6. Irs forms 1040 667% as the percentage. Irs forms 1040 If you selected a 35- or 45-year period, use either Table 11, 12, or 15. Irs forms 1040 Election. Irs forms 1040   You had to make the election to use the alternate ACRS method by the return due date (including extensions) for the tax year you placed the property in service. Irs forms 1040 Revocation of election. Irs forms 1040   Your election to use an alternate ACRS method, once made, can be changed only with the consent of the Commissioner. Irs forms 1040 The Commissioner grants consent only in extraordinary circumstances. Irs forms 1040 Any request for a revocation will be considered a request for a ruling. Irs forms 1040 ACRS Deduction in Short Tax Year For a tax year that is less than 12 months, the ACRS deduction is prorated on a 12-month basis. Irs forms 1040 Figure the amount of the ACRS deduction for a short tax year as follows: First, you figure the ACRS deduction for a full year. Irs forms 1040 You figure this by multiplying the unadjusted basis by the recovery percentage. Irs forms 1040 You then multiply the ACRS deduction determined for a full tax year by a fraction. Irs forms 1040 The numerator (top number) of the fraction is the number of months in the short tax year and the denominator (bottom number) is 12. Irs forms 1040 For example, a corporation placed in service in June 1986 an item of 3-year property with an unadjusted basis of $10,000. Irs forms 1040 The corporation files a tax return, because of a change in its accounting period, for the 6-month short tax year ending June 30, 1986. Irs forms 1040 The full year's ACRS deduction for this item is $2,500 ($10,000 ÷ 25%), the first year percentage from the 3-year table. Irs forms 1040 The ACRS deduction for the short tax year is $1,250 ($2,500 ÷ 6/12). Irs forms 1040 You use the full ACRS percentages during the remaining years of the recovery period. Irs forms 1040 For the first tax year after the recovery period, the unrecovered basis will be deductible. Irs forms 1040 Exception. Irs forms 1040   For the tax year in which you placed 15-, 18-, or 19-year real property in service or in the tax year you dispose of it, you compute the ACRS deduction for the number of months that the property is in service during that tax year. Irs forms 1040 You compute the number of months using either a full month or mid-month convention. Irs forms 1040 This is true regardless of the number of months in the tax year and the recovery period and method used. Irs forms 1040 Dispositions A disposition is the permanent withdrawal of property from use in your trade or business or in the production of income. Irs forms 1040 You can make a withdrawal by sale, exchange, retirement, abandonment, or destruction. Irs forms 1040 You generally recognize gain or loss on the disposition of an asset by sale. Irs forms 1040 However, nonrecognition rules can allow you to postpone some gain. Irs forms 1040 See Publication 544. Irs forms 1040 If you physically abandon property, you can deduct as a loss the adjusted basis of the asset at the time of its abandonment. Irs forms 1040 Your intent must be to discard the asset so that you will not use it again or retrieve it for sale, exchange, or other disposition. Irs forms 1040 Early dispositions. Irs forms 1040   The disposal of an asset before the end of its specified recovery period, is referred to as an early disposition. Irs forms 1040 When an early disposition occurs, the depreciation deduction in the year of disposition depends on the class of property involved. Irs forms 1040 Early dispositions of ACRS property other than 15-, 18-, or 19-year real property. Irs forms 1040   Generally, you get no ACRS deduction for the tax year in which you dispose of or retire recovery property, except for 15-, 18-, and 19-year real property. Irs forms 1040 This means there is no depreciation deduction under ACRS in the year you dispose of or retire any of your 3-, 5-, or 10-year recovery property. Irs forms 1040 Dispositions — mass asset accounts. Irs forms 1040   The law provides a special rule to avoid the calculation of gain on the disposition of assets from mass asset accounts. Irs forms 1040 A mass asset account includes items usually minor in value in relation to the group, numerous in quantity, impractical to separately identify, and not usually accounted for on a separate basis, but on a total dollar value. Irs forms 1040 Examples of mass assets include minor items of office, plant, and store furniture and fixtures. Irs forms 1040   Under the special rule, if you elected to use a mass asset account, you recognize gain to the extent of the proceeds from the disposition of the asset. Irs forms 1040 You leave the unadjusted basis of the property in the account until recovered in future years. Irs forms 1040 If you did this, include the total proceeds realized from the disposition in income on the tax return for the year of disposition. Irs forms 1040 Early dispositions — 15-year real property. Irs forms 1040   If you dispose of 15-year real property, you base your ACRS deduction for the year of disposition on the number of months in use. Irs forms 1040 You use a full-month convention. Irs forms 1040 For a disposition at any time during a particular month before the end of the recovery period, no deduction is allowed for the month of disposition. Irs forms 1040 This applies whether you use the regular ACRS method or elected the alternate ACRS method. Irs forms 1040 Example. Irs forms 1040 You purchased and placed in service a rental house on March 2, 1984, for $98,000 (not including the cost of land). Irs forms 1040 You file your return based on a calendar year. Irs forms 1040 Your rate from Table 1 for the third month is 10%. Irs forms 1040 Your ACRS deduction for 1984 was $9,800 ($98. Irs forms 1040 000 ÷ 10%). Irs forms 1040 For 1985 through 1988, you figured your ACRS deductions using 11%, 9%, 8%, and 7% ÷ $98,000. Irs forms 1040 For 1989 through 1992, you figured your ACRS deductions using 6% for each year. Irs forms 1040 The deduction each year was $98,000 ÷ 6%. Irs forms 1040 For 1993 and 1994, the ACRS deduction is ($98,000 ÷ 5%) $4,900 for each year. Irs forms 1040 You sell the house on June 1, 1995. Irs forms 1040 You figure your ACRS deduction for 1995 for the full year and then prorate that amount for the months of use. Irs forms 1040 The full ACRS deduction for 1995 is $4,900 ($98,000 ÷ 5%). Irs forms 1040 You then prorate this amount to the 5 months in 1995 during which it was rented. Irs forms 1040 Your ACRS deduction for 1995 is $2,042 ($4,900 ÷ 5/12). Irs forms 1040 Early dispositions — 18- and 19-year real property. Irs forms 1040   If you dispose of 18- or 19-year real property, you base your ACRS deduction for the year of disposition on the number of months in use. Irs forms 1040 For 18-year property placed in service before June 23, 1984, use a full-month convention on a disposition. Irs forms 1040 For 18-year property placed in service after June 22, 1984, and for 19-year property, determine the number of months in use by using the mid-month convention. Irs forms 1040 Under the mid-month convention,treat real property disposed of any time during a month as disposed of in the middle of that month. Irs forms 1040 Count the month of disposition as half a month of use. Irs forms 1040 Example. Irs forms 1040 You purchased and placed in service a rental house on July 2, 1984, for $100,000 (not including the cost of land). Irs forms 1040 You file your return based on a calendar year. Irs forms 1040 Your rate from Table 4 for the seventh month is 4%. Irs forms 1040 You figured your ACRS deduction for 1984 was $4,000 ($100,000 ÷ 4%). Irs forms 1040 In 1985 through 1994, your ACRS deductions were 9%, 8%, 8%, 7%, 6%, 6%, 5%, 5%, and 5% ÷ $100,000. Irs forms 1040 You sell the house on September 24, 1995. Irs forms 1040 Figure your ACRS deduction for 1995 for the months of use. Irs forms 1040 The full ACRS deduction for 1995 is $5,000 ($100,000 ÷ 5%). Irs forms 1040 Prorate this amount for the 8. Irs forms 1040 5 months in 1995 that you held the property. Irs forms 1040 Under the mid-month convention, you count September as half a month. Irs forms 1040 Your ACRS deduction for 1995 is $3,542 ($5,000 ÷ 8. Irs forms 1040 5/12). Irs forms 1040 Depreciation Recapture If you dispose of property depreciated under ACRS that is section 1245 recovery property, you will generally recognize gain or loss. Irs forms 1040 Gain recognized on a disposition is ordinary income to the extent of prior depreciation deductions taken. Irs forms 1040 This recapture rule applies to all personal property in the 3-year, 5-year, and 10-year classes. Irs forms 1040 You recapture gain on manufactured homes and theme park structures in the 10-year class as section 1245 property. Irs forms 1040 Section 1245 property generally includes all personal property. Irs forms 1040 See Section 1245 property in chapter 4 of Publication 544 for more information. Irs forms 1040 You treat dispositions of section 1250 real property on which you have a gain as section 1245 recovery property. Irs forms 1040 You recognize gain on this property as ordinary income to the extent of prior depreciation deductions taken. Irs forms 1040 Section 1250 property includes most real property. Irs forms 1040 See Section 1250 property in chapter 4 of Publication 544 for more information. Irs forms 1040 This rule applies to all section 1250 real property except the following property: Any 15-, 18-, or 19-year real property that is residential rental property. Irs forms 1040 Any 15-, 18-, or 19-year real property that you elected to depreciate using the alternate ACRS method. Irs forms 1040 Any 15-, 18-, or 19-year real property that is subsidized low-income housing. Irs forms 1040 For these recapture rules, you treat the section 179 deduction and 50% of the investment credit that reduced your basis as depreciation. Irs forms 1040 See Publication 544 for further discussion of dispositions of section 1245 and 1250 property. Irs forms 1040 Prev  Up  Next   Home   More Online Publications
