Principles Of Depreciation

The practice of depreciating assets has been evolving since the 1830s when industries, railroads particularly, began using more expensive equipment in their businesses. Since that time businesses and eventually the IRS have modified and improved this accounting practice to provide fair and uniform methods of depreciation to all businesses, large and small.

This course is designed for the tax preparer that has experience in completing returns that include a Schedule C as it is written in clear-cut language, provides a solid base of information and builds on that base with more detailed information.

It is important for any tax professional who prepares Schedule C returns to be well educated in the practice of depreciating business assets. This course provides that training.
