For tax purposes: All assets are MACRS property as follows: Store building, 39-year nonresidential
real property; Equipment, seven-year property; and Trucks, five-year property.
The corporation acquired the store building for $1.4 million and placed it in service on
January 2, 2003. The corporation acquired two pieces of equipment for $320,000
(Equipment 1) and $640,000 (Equipment 2) and placed them in service on January 2,
2003. The corporation acquired the old trucks for $250,000 and placed them in service
on July 18, 2004. The corporation did not make the expensing election under Sec. 179 on
any property acquired before 2006 and elected not to claim bonus depreciation. Also, the
corporation did not elect the straight-line option or the alternative depreciation system
(ADS) under MACRS. Accumulated tax depreciation through December 31, 2005 on
these properties is as follows:
Store building $106,246

cost $320,000 on January 2, 2003. The corporation had no Sec. 1231 losses from
prior years. In a separate transaction on November 17, 2006, the corporation acquired
and placed in service a piece of equipment costing $2 million. These two transactions do
not qualify as a like-kind exchange under Reg. Sec. 1.1031(k)-1(a). The new equipment is
seven-year property. The corporation made the Sec. 179 expensing election with regard to
the new equipment. The corporation relies on Sec. 179(d)(3) and Reg. Sec. 1.179-4(d) to
determine the cost of its Sec. 179 property.
