## What is Indigo's total MACRS deduction for 2019?

**Question:** What is Indigo's total MACRS deduction for 2019?

**Answer:**

$27,145

**Explanation:**

Data provided in the question:

Cost of the machine = $100,000

Type of machine 5-year MACRS property

From the MACRS table,

Depreciation rate of 5-year MACRS property for year 1 = 20%

Therefore, Depreciation for the machine in the year 2019 = $100,000 × 0.20 = $20,000

Cost of the office equipment = $50,000

Type of equipment 7-year MACRS property

From the MACRS table,

Depreciation rate of 7-year MACRS property for year 1 = 14.29%

Therefore, Depreciation for the equipment in the year 2019 = $50,000 × 0.1429 = $7,145

Hence, the total deduction = $20,000 + $7,145 = **$27,145**
