Car deprecation/ New business

Level 7

In 2020 I had an LLC and I used the big car deduction actual expense for new purchase. I am closing out that business and stopped the depreciation on it, and put 0 miles on the schedule C. I opened up a new business for a second schedule C, and I want to use the same car that was once depreciated. Am I able to use the standard mileage deduction since its a new EIN, new LLC, new schedule C? I am not doing the old business. This is from my client. Thanks for your help.

It might be different schedule Cs, but it is still the same taxpayer and same vehicle so I think you continue onward with what you started.

Same Vehicle - Same Taxpayer, requires continuing the same method. (New EIN for single user LLC, which is transparent for tax purposes would not have any effect.)

I agree with IRonMaN taxpayer made their choice, now they have to live with it so long as they  own and use that vehicle for business purposes.

Is this the same car and client as you asked earlier, that Lisa was helping you with, here:


If so, it helps to keep to the same topic, for the same issue.

"Level Up" is a gaming function, not a real life function.
