Old depreciation systems do not die--or even fade away very fast. Businesses and the practitioners that serve them must operate with three coexisting depreciation systems--Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS), the Accelerated Cost Recovery System (ACRS) and the Treasury Department's Asset Depreciation System (ADR). CCH's U.S. Master Depreciation Guide offers tax and accounting professionals who work with businesses a one-stop resource for guidance in understanding and applying the complex depreciation rules to their fixed assets. This area is especially challenging, because bits and pieces of applicable information must be gathered from a maze of Revenue Procedures, IRS Tables and IRS Regulations. These sources are frequently old and include some materials which may be non-applicable. CCH's U.S. Master Depreciation Guide pulls the pieces together, so practitioners can make sense of all the corresponding information and put the information into practice. The U.S. Master Depreciation Guide includes several useful "quick reference tables." These include a list of trucks, SUVs, and vans that are exempt from the luxury car caps because they weigh more than 6,000 pounds, trucks with a bed-length under six feet which are subject to a $25,000 section 179 depreciation cap, a list of states that conform to the federal bonus depreciation and section 179 expensing rules, and a comprehensive table of assets and corresponding recovery periods with cross references to the location of the related U.S. Master Depreciation Guide explanation. Published annually, this new edition is completely updated to reflect all depreciation rule changes through press time in December. A special Highlights section provides a quick overview of any new legislation, cases, rulings, and regulations occurring since last year's edition, with
