Hello!

The straight line method for vehicles is 5 year period.

Therefore...$28,124 X .31 = $8,718 Business use portion of basis

$8,718 / 5 years = $1,743 annually.

What do you mean by HY?

Ask Your Own Tax Question

It would be nice if you could use Section 179 , but since you don't use the vehicle over 50% for business, that option is out.

I thought the same amount but my previous Tax filer used only 585 so I have doubt about it

Huh, maybe they business use was different or maybe the tax filer may be incorrect.

I'm confident we have the right number, especially since we both got the same number.
