I bought bmx x5 in 2004 for about 65000. Used for business about 85% of mileage each year. BMW got totaled in Feb7/2015. I got paid by inurance company 11528. I am using turbotax to file returns. Where it asks Vehicle total cost I filled in 64,500 which was what I paid in 2004.
I cut and paste Turbotax sections and I am unable to figure out the last section "Calculate Depreciation
Equivalent"...how do I do that??? please see below
Because you stopped using this vehicle for this business in 2015, we need to know the business portion of the sales price you received for this vehicle and any expenses of sale, such as advertising or commissions.Normally that would be whatever someone paid you for it - times this vehicle's business use percentage (89.33%). But if you traded it for non-business property, or just stopped using it for business, select how to determine the sales price.
