The Federal Depreciation Handbook from Thomson Reuters provides expert guidance on tax depreciation and other cost recovery issues to help tax practitioners make tax-efficient decisions and elections when an asset is placed in service. The Handbook also explains how to structure business property transactions to optimize federal income tax results when performing general tax planning or transactional consulting services.
