The IRS has issued guidance (IRS Revenue Procedure 2019-13) that provides a safe harbor method for determining depreciation deductions for autos that claim 100-percent bonus depreciation for 2018 – 2022.
The safe harbor method allows the remaining basis of the auto (after the $18,000 bonus depreciation is taken) to be depreciated using the applicable depreciation table in Appendix A of IRS Publication 946 (How to Depreciate Property) for each subsequent year.
IRS Rev. Proc. 2019-13 provides examples of how the safe harbor rule works beginning on page 7.
A taxpayer adopts the safe harbor method by applying it to deduct depreciation of an auto on their return beginning in the second year the auto is used.
