To determine

To calculate: The basis for depreciation of cement manufacturing equipment valued at $420,000 on March 14,2014 of Stone Age Concrete, Inc. The equipment is used for business 100% of the time and firm’s accountant elected to take a$100,000 section 179 deduction.

Explanation

Given Information:

Stone Age Concrete, Inc. purchased cement manufacturing equipment valued at $420,000 on March 14, 2014. The equipment is used for business 100% of the time. The firm’s accountant elected to take a$100,000 section 179 deduction.

Formula used:

Procedure to prepare a Depreciation schedule by using MACRS is given below.

First, calculate the basis for depreciation.

Step 1: Percent of business use: If an asset is used for business less than 100% of the time, then multiply the original cost by the business-use percentage of the asset.

Step 2: Section 179 deduction: Find the amount of section 179 deduction by subtracting from a business-use basis.

Step 3: Special depreciation allowances: Find Special depreciation allowances percent with the help of Table 17-4.

Basis for depreciation=Tentative basis(100%Special depreciation allowance percent)

Calculation:

To calculate the basis for depreciation steps are given below

(b)
