You probably like your personal vehicle just as it is. But wouldn’t you like it far better if it were producing tax deductions? Perhaps big deductions, immediately. And the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act gives you the tax reform road map on how to do this.
Of course, to make this happen, you need to strip your personal vehicle of its personal status and re-dress it as a business vehicle. This is not difficult. In its new business dress, your former personal vehicle can qualify for up to 100 percent bonus depreciation.
Example. Kevin has a personal vehicle with a tax basis for depreciation of $31,000. With 70 percent business use on this 100 percent bonus depreciation–qualifying vehicle, Kevin has a new $21,700 tax deduction for this year ($31,000 x 70 percent).
