There is no difference in the rules when buying a new or used van. You can use the standard mileage rate or you can claim the business portion of the actual expenses of the van (including depreciation).

Not sure how to figure out the depreciation for 2011 at 90% use or do I have any left to use? Thanks for any help that I can get

I can't figure out how these numbers were arrived at, so I can't tell you what you can depreciate in 2011. You need to ask the person who did this depreciation, or find a tax preparer to help you.

Jenniferdawn Awesome! Thanks so much Tom. I thought I was understanding that right, but it seemed too good to be true.

TomCopeland If your van was purchased new -
$37,352 x 40% business use = $14,940
$14,940 x 10% = $1,494
+ $8,000 100% bonus rule = $9,494
Depreciation deduction for 2011: 9,494

Jenniferdawn Thanks Tom! I appreciate it. I'll look at the tags too, though I've already done some searching and read Tom's books thoroughly and I'm still a bit confused.

My depreciation deduction for my van for 2011 is $1494.00. (37,352 (van cost) x .40 (business use) = 14,940 x .10 (first of 5 year straight line depreciation) = $1494.00) But the 100% depreciation rule says the deduction limit is raised by an additional $8000. Does that mean I add $8000 to the $1494 for my deduction? Or do I do 40% of the $8000?

Please anyone, I'm needing some help here.
I'm on vacation til Sunday. I'll reply to your question late Sunday.

Michael I'm sure Tom will reply at some point. I placed some TAGS on the bottom left that may be helpful until then.

Jenniferdawn We bought a new van in 2011 and are planning on using the actual vehicle expense method for taxes and to take advantage of the 100% bonus depreciation rule this year. One thing I'm not clear about though. The business use last year was 41%. Do I use that 41% for claiming the deduction for these 2011 taxes only and then come up with a new percent and recalculate each future year what the deduction is, or do I stick with the first years 41% for all 5 years of deductions?
