8. Press t for the amount of depreciation and remaining depreciable value
for the next year. Repeat this step for the following years.
9. For a new case, press gi000 and return to step 2.
Note:
If the number of months in the first calendar year is less than 12, the
amount of depreciation in the 1st year will be less than a full year's
depreciation. The actual number of years that depreciation will occur is
equal to the life +1. For example, a drill has a life of 3 years and is
purchased 3 months before the year-end. The following time diagram shows
that depreciation will occur over 4 calendar years.
Example 1: A property has just been purchased for \$150,000. The purchase
price is allocated between \$25,000 for land and \$125,000 for improvements
(building). The remaining useful life of the building is agreed to be 25 years. There
is no salvage value forecasted at the end of the useful life of the building. Thus, the
depreciable value and book value is \$125,000.
The building was acquired 4 months before the end of the year. Using straight-line
depreciation, find the amount of depreciation and remaining depreciable value for
the 1st, 2nd, 25th, and 26th years. What is the total depreciation after 3 years ?

The display will pause showing the year number before showing the amount of depreciation
