The application automatically designates any asset as real property if the asset falls into one of the following categories.

For these assets, the Tasks > Designate as Real Property command, which is accessible when the Asset Detail dialog's is open, is automatically selected and cannot be changed.

Complete the following steps to designate as real property any other asset that has a life greater than five years.

  1. Open the Asset List window for an activity.
  2. Select the asset you want to designate as real property and click the Modify button.
  3. In the Asset Detail dialog, choose Tasks > Designate as Real Property. A checkmark appears next to the command, indicating that this designation is selected.

Note: If MACRS property (5, 7, 10, 15, 20, and 25 year) that has been forced to be real property (via the Tasks > Designate as Real Property command) is to be included in the mid-quarter calculation, you must mark the Include in mid-quarter determination (force) checkbox, which is located in the Mid-Quarter & Section 179 Force Options button in the asset's Other tab.

Tip: To remove the designation, repeat this procedure.
