Should I report a portion of the CCA recapture based on the average business use percentage over the life of the vehicle when there was no business mileage in 2017? T2125

Background: I sold my vehicle in 2017 that I have used both professionally (sole proprietor) and personally in the past and did not purchase a replacement vehicle.  This resulted in a recapture of CCA in the amount of $X,000 in 2017.  I have no business income or expenses to report in 2017 as I elected to discontinue the business in 2017.  Given I have no business mileage, there's no percentage being applied to the CCA recapture and subsequently no income to add or tax liability being calculated. T2125


The only way  to record it is to assign % of use. You don need to put it in km, you can just assign % as 1/5 if your average use was 20%

Make sure you indicate that this is last year of business so the form does not come up next year .

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.
