  • 5. Depreciation Recapture

    When a business sells equipment at a price greater than its value, the U.S. Internal Revenue Service collects taxes on the difference. This is called depreciation recapture. Find the taxable amount for each year in which depreciation recapture could occur for a selling price of $6000. (See Example 1 and Example 2.)

    • Worked-Out Solution

      Begin by making a depreciation schedule.

      Cost: $10,000

      Salvage value: $2000

      Useful life: 8 years

      The annual depreciation is

      After making a depreciation schedule, add a 5th column that shows the excess on which taxes must be paid.

      A spreadsheet showing the depreciation schedule is shown below.

      So, if the equipment is sold in (or after) Year 5, the business must pay tax on part of the sale price.
