An asset may depreciate for several reasons. One reason for depreciation is that as an asset ages, it has a progressively shorter future life over which it can earn income. Thus, the present value of the asset’s future income stream, which determines its value, falls as the asset ages.

When they sell the assets, much of their capital gains may be due only to inflation.

Inflation-related gains are not a real increase in wealth. Indexing the purchase price (tax basis) for inflation would provide savers some relief for this type of tax on fictitious income. Divided by the cost of the asset: this includes all costs for acquiring the asset, like transportation, set-up, and training.

This will result in the book value of the asset. For example, the annual depreciation on an equipment with a useful life of 20 years, a salvage value of $ and a cost of $, is $4, (($,$2,)/20). B The capital gain is not taxed because the asset was held for at least 18 months.

Although the total depreciation expense over the course of the asset’s life is the same ($K), the impact to the period in which the change was made was a relative decrease in.
