Amended federal tax form Introduction The law allows you to recover your cost in business or income-producing property through yearly tax deductions. Amended federal tax form You do this by depreciating your property, that is, by deducting some of your cost on your tax return each year. Amended federal tax form You can depreciate both tangible property, such as a car, building, or machinery, and certain intangible property, such as a copyright or a patent. Amended federal tax form The amount you can deduct depends on: How much the property cost, When you began using it, How long it will take to recover your cost, and Which of several depreciation methods you use. Amended federal tax form Depreciation defined. Amended federal tax form   Depreciation is a loss in the value of property over the time the property is being used. Amended federal tax form Events that can cause property to depreciate include wear and tear, age, deterioration, and obsolescence. Amended federal tax form You can get back your cost of certain property, such as equipment you use in your business or property used for the production of income by taking deductions for depreciation. Amended federal tax form Black's Law Dictionary Amortization. Amended federal tax form   Amortization is similar to depreciation. Amended federal tax form Using amortization, you can recover your cost or basis in certain property proportionately over a specific number of years or months. Amended federal tax form Examples of costs you can amortize are the costs of starting a business, reforestation, and pollution control facilities. Amended federal tax form You can find information on amortization inchapter 12 of Publication 535, Business Expenses. Amended federal tax form Alternative minimum tax. Amended federal tax form   If you use accelerated depreciation for real property, or personal property that is leased to others, you may be liable for the alternative minimum tax.
