How to claim CCA for 2 vehicles in same tax year?

I've tried entering 2 vehicles, but TT seems to be calculating a reduced CCA amount for one of the vehicles, and nothing for the other.

Vehicle #1
- Purchased Feb 2016 for $42,554 ($38,026 before tax)
- Used from June-Dec 2016 for business 
- The field for CCA amount says I can only claim $1,900.12 when UCC amount was entered as $42,554

Even if I calculated this as UCC $33,600 ($30K + GST/PST), wouldn't it be:

$33,600 / 2 = $16800
$16,800 / 12 months = $1400
$1400 x 6 months (June-Dec) = $8400
$8400 @ 30% = $2520

Vehicle #2
- UCC at beg. of year = $705.89
- Used from Jan-June (The car broke down, and I transferred title/ownership of car for $0. Was told by an accountant to record disposing of it for $1.)
- The field for CCA amount (which TT is supposed to automatically populate) was blank, but allows me to enter this amount manually: $105.89

$705.89/12 months = $58.82
$58.82 x 6 months (Jan-June) = $352.95
$352.95 @ 30% = $105.89


1) Why is TT coming up with $1,900.12 for V#1, and blank for V#2?

2) Does the order in which I list the vehicles matter?

3) Also, I don't have business partners, but when I enter vehicles as "for my usage only" instead of "used by all partners", my expenses don't seem to be accounted for.

Please advise!

Thanks in advance.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
