MARRIED SEPARATE FILERS: The spouse to whom the income was paid must report that income. Modifications to partnership and/or S Corporation income are allocated between spouses in the same manner as that income was divided on line 10, IA1040.

Please Note: Iowa did NOT couple with the following provisions of the Federal Job Creation and Worker Assistance Act:

a. Bonus Depreciation

Iowa did not adopt the “bonus depreciation” provisions for assets placed in service on or after September 11, 2001, and before May 6, 2003. An adjustment will have to be made on form IA 4562A to account for the difference between the Federal depreciation and the Iowa depreciation. The total adjustment for decoupling as calculated on line 5 of Part III of the IA 4562A should be entered on line 14 of the IA 1040 as other income. This amount may need to be added back on several lines or schedules. Attach the IA 4562A to your income tax return.

When figuring your gross income on the IA 1040, you will enter the same figures as on the equivalent lines from the Federal 1040. However, the bonus deprecation adjustment will then be entered on line 14 of the IA 1040 to reflect the effect of decoupling on this issue. Lines 5, 6, 7, 10, and 11 of the IA 1040, which may be impacted by the bonus depreciation issue, will still be the same as the equivalent Federal 1040 entries.

Finally, the bonus depreciation adjustment on line 14 of the IA 1040 may need to be added back on several other schedules or line entries.

b. Net Operating Losses

Iowa did not adopt the provisions for the 5-year carryback for net operating losses incurred in 2001 and 2002. Therefore, Iowa net operating losses will still be carried back two years, except for losses incurred in presidentially declared disaster areas (3-year carryback) and losses incurred by farm corporations (5-year carryback).

Please Note: Iowa DID couple with the Federal bonus depreciation and Section 179 Expensing Provision of JGTRRA

In a special session held in September 2004, the Iowa Legislature passed legislation to couple with the additional 50% first-year depreciation allowance (bonus depreciation) for assets placed in service after May 5, 2003, but before January 1, 2005. In addition, this law also coupled with the increase in Section 179 expensing allowance from $25,000 to $100,000 for tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2003 ($102,000 for 2004). These provisions were provided in the federal Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2003.
