The asset class would be.. 3, 5, 7, 10, 15, 20, 25 year? Or 27.5 Residential Rental. 31.5 or 39 year Non residential real estate?

I know you said it has to be depreciated over 39 years? But it's not non-residential real estate. So I'm confused.

Have I explained this clearly enough? LOL
You must depreciate a deck or furnace over 39 years. It is considered non-residential real estate in that the business portion is business, not personal and it's connected to real estate. It may not make perfect sense, but that's the rule - 39 years. List the furnace as other.


Join me for a webinar “2012 Tax Changes: How to Avoid Mistakes on Your Tax Return” Tuesday, February 12th at 8:30-10:00pm Eastern Time. The cost is $25 (100% tax deductible!). To register: http://events.r20.constantcontact.co...&llr=yatrx4cab

Michael That kind of question would be good to ask at Tom's webinar next week. He just wrote an article about the New IRS Rule on House Expenses that he will be covering. http://www.tomcopelandblog.com/2013/...-expenses.html

suehelen Thanks, Michael, but that doesn't really apply to this particular situation.
