Select the desired option from the drop-down list to determine how the AZ treatment will calculate bonus depreciation for the 2014 tax year for assets placed into service in the 2013 tax year.

  • Do not elect bonus for 2013 assets - When this option is selected, the AZ treatment does not calculate bonus depreciation for assets that qualified for bonus depreciation and were placed in service in the 2013 tax year.
  • Elect bonus for 2013 assets - When this option is selected, a new "AZOrig" treatment is created and the AZ treatment data is copied to the AZOrig treatment. Once this is done, the AZ treatment is recalculated to allow for 10% of the 50% bonus depreciation taken for federal purposes in the 2013 tax year.

Select the desired option from the drop-down list to determine how the IA treatment will calculate bonus depreciation and section 179 for the 2003 and 2004 tax years.

  • Amend 2003 - comply 2003 & 2004 - When this option is selected, the IA treatment calculates following bonus depreciation for assets placed in service after 5/05/03, and following the federal section 179 limits. This option is selected by default.

    Note: This option is available only when the client's processing period is tax year 2004.

  • Catch-up 2003 - comply 2003 - 2005 - When this option is selected, a new "IAorig" treatment is created and the IA treatment's data is copied to the IAorig treatment. Once this is done, the IA treatment is recalculated to follow bonus depreciation for all assets placed in service after 5/05/03. The IAorig and IA treatments are used to calculate the catch-up adjustment.
  • Do not comply 2003 / comply 2004 - When this option is selected, the IA treatment does not comply with bonus depreciation or the increased section 179 limit for assets placed in service in the 2003 tax year. For the 2004 tax year, the IA treatment complies with bonus depreciation and the increased federal section 179 limitation.
  • Do not comply 2003 - 2005 - When this option is selected, the IA treatment does not comply with bonus depreciation or the increased section 179 limit for assets placed in service in the 2003 and 2004 tax years.

    Note: This option is available only when the client's processing period is tax year 2004.
