The Form 8829 instructions state improvements placed in service (shown on Form 8829 Expenses for Business Use of Your Home during the current year) need to be reported on Form 4562 Depreciation and Amortization for the first year only. The TaxAct program will automatically create this Form 4562 if the date of the improvement entered on Form 8829 is in the current tax year.
TaxAct® supports only one addition/improvement for Federal Form 8829. If you have more than one addition/improvement, you can still file your return with TaxAct, however you will need to file a paper return. Instructions to accomplish this are outlined below.
Note. If you print Form 8829, Form 4562 will also print.
