The IRS issued its annual inflation-adjusted update of depreciation limitations for passenger automobiles (including passenger vans and trucks) placed in service in 2021 (Rev. Proc. 2021-31). The revenue procedure similarly updates income inclusion amounts by lessees of passenger automobiles with respect to vehicles with lease terms beginning in 2021. These limits are updated annually for inflation according to the automobile component of the chained consumer price index for urban consumers.
For passenger automobiles to which bonus first-year depreciation deduction applies and that are acquired after Sept. 27, 2017, and placed in service during calendar year 2021, the depreciation limit under Sec. 280F(d)(7) is $18,200 for the first tax year (an increase of $100 from 2020); $16,400 for the second tax year (an increase of $300); $9,800 for the third tax year (an increase of $100); and $5,860 for each succeeding year (an increase of $100).
For passenger automobiles to which no bonus first-year depreciation applies, the depreciation limit under Sec. 280F(d)(7) is $10,200 for the first tax year; $16,400 for the second tax year; $9,800 for the third tax year; and $5,860 for each succeeding year.

Even though you have selected or received the Lawsuit Threshold, it will not apply to your claim for damages when the vehicle which caused your injury is a commercial vehicle, such as a taxi, dump truck or tractor-trailer, or where the offending vehicle is an out-of-state private passenger auto whose insurance carrier does not do business in New Jersey. New Jersey Transit buses do not carry P.I.P. coverage, as opposed to privately-owned buses which do, and passengers injured while on privately owned buses are subject to the Lawsuit Threshold. Your attorney will advise you whether the Lawsuit Threshold is applicable to your claim.

A1. Yes. You may not claim the credit if your modified adjusted gross income (AGI) exceeds certain thresholds. This limitation is based on the lesser of your modified AGI for the year that the new clean vehicle was placed in service or for the preceding year. The relevant modified AGI thresholds are as follows:
The Clean Vehicle Qualified Manufacturer Requirements contain a list of eligible clean vehicles, including fuel cell vehicles, that qualified manufacturers have indicated to the IRS meet the requirements to claim the new clean vehicle credit beginning January 1, 2023, including the applicable MSRP limitation.
A4. The credit limitations on the price of the vehicle are based on manufacturer's suggested retail price, not the actual price you paid for the vehicle. See FAQ 2 for how to determine the manufacturer's suggested retail price.
A7. Eligible taxpayers who placed in service an eligible vehicle on or after January 1, 2023 may claim the credit on their tax return based on the updated vehicle classification definition provided in Notice 2023-16PDF issued on February 3, 2023, and the associated MSRP limitation. All vehicles that were classified as an SUV, van, or pickup truck for the purpose of the new clean vehicle tax credit prior to the updated notice continue to be subject to the same $80,000 MSRP limitation. Some vehicles that were previously subject to the $55,000 MSRP limitation are now classified as SUVs and therefore get the benefit of the $80,000 MSRP limitation. The vehicles now classified as SUVs for this purpose include but may not be limited to the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq, the 2022 and 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E, certain variants of the 2022 and 2023 Tesla Model Y, certain variants of the 2022 and 2023 Volkswagen ID.4, and the 2022 and 2023 Ford Escape Plug-In Hybrid. In the case where vehicles have been reclassified for the purpose of this credit, taxpayers should obtain a report from the seller, see Q9.
Except as provided in clause (ii), the unrecovered basis of any passenger automobile shall be treated as an expense for the 1st taxable year after the recovery period. Any excess of the unrecovered basis over the limitation of clause (ii) shall be treated as an expense in the succeeding taxable year.
Any deduction allowable under section 179 with respect to any listed property shall be subject to the limitations of subsections (a) and (b), and the limitation of paragraph (3) of this subsection, in the same manner as if it were a depreciation deduction allowable under section 168.
In the case of any passenger automobile placed in service after 2018, subsection (a) shall be applied by increasing each dollar amount contained in such subsection by the automobile price inflation adjustment for the calendar year in which such automobile is placed in service. Any increase under the preceding sentence shall be rounded to the nearest multiple of $100 (or if the increase is a multiple of $50, such increase shall be increased to the next higher multiple of $100).
All taxpayers holding interests in any passenger automobile shall be treated as 1 taxpayer for purposes of applying subsection (a) to such automobile, and the limitations of subsection (a) shall be allocated among such taxpayers in proportion to their interests in such automobile.
Taxpayers who purchase a passenger automobile subject to the IRC § 280F limitations must consider the impact of taking bonus depreciation on future depreciation deductions. Rev. Proc. 2019-13 provides a safe harbor that allows for a yearly deduction.
SUVs with a gross vehicle weight rating above 6,000 lbs. are not subject to depreciation (including bonus depreciation) limits. They are, however, limited to a $26,200 section 179 deduction in 2021. IRC § 179(b)(5)(A). No depreciation or §179 limits apply to SUVs with a GVW more than 14,000 lbs. Trucks and vans with a GVW rating above 6,000 lbs. but not more than 14,000 lbs. generally have the same rules: no bonus depreciation limitation, but a $26,200 section 179 deduction limit. These vehicles, however, are not subject to the section 179 limit if any of the following exceptions apply:
The revenue procedure includes the Sec. 280F(a) inflation-adjusted dollar limitations on depreciation deductions for passenger automobiles, including trucks and vans, obtained after Sept. 27, 2017, and placed in service during 2023, for 2023 and each tax year thereafter.
For passenger automobiles for which the Sec. 168(k) first-year, or "bonus," depreciation is applied, the limitation is $20,200 for the first tax year, an increase of $1,000 from the 2022 amount. The succeeding-year limitations are $19,500 for the second tax year (up by $1,500 over 2022); $11,700 for the third year (up by $900); and $6,960 for each year after (up by $500).
If bonus depreciation does not apply, the 2023 first-year limitation is $12,200, an increase of $1,000 from 2022, and the succeeding years' limitations are the same as for vehicles eligible for the bonus depreciation.
Additionally, the procedure contains a table of the inflation-updated amounts for a lease term beginning in calendar year 2023 by which a deduction for a leased passenger automobile must be reduced under Sec. 280F(c)(2).
This means a lawsuit alleging auto negligence must be filed no later than two years after the collision or it will be considered time-barred. If basic reparation benefits have been paid (i.e. PIP payments for medical expenses or lost wages), the two year period begins to accrue after the last payment of such benefits. There are many nuances to this two year deadline, which are set forth in Kentucky case opinions. For this reason, it is important to speak with an attorney if you have been injured in an auto accident.
As a general rule, the auto accident two year limitation period begins to run (accrue) on the date of the accident. But there are critical exceptions to this rule. A few of those exceptions are as follows:
PIP Benefits Paid - The two year limitation period runs on the earlier of (1) the date of the accident or (2) the last PIP benefit payment. In other words, if an auto insurance company paid medical expenses or lost wages pursuant to a PIP policy, the plaintiff benefiting from such payments can file an auto negligence lawsuit any time on or before the two year anniversary of the issuance of last payment, regardless of how much time has passed since the accident. 781b155fdc
