Question

I have a question about vehicle depreciation. If I take a Section 179 deduction on the full purchase price of a vehicle will I still have the ability to depreciate the vehicle in future returns?

Answer

No, you will not have any additional vehicle depreciation. You must reduce your basis in the property by the Section 179 deduction. By doing so, you will not have any basis for property to depreciate in future years.
