10266: 4562 - Entering Amortized Assets

1040 Individual

On a 4562, how do I enter amortized assets?  


On the 4562 screen:

  • Enter the Description, Date Acquired, Cost.
  • Select an applicable Property Type.
  • In the Method field, select AMT (use a different method if applicable).
  • Enter years amortized in the Life field.
    • If the life is given in months, convert it to years. For example, 60 months would be 5 years.
  • In the Amortization section, choose a Code section from the drop list.
