1. Depreciable asset A was purchased January 2, 2009. It originally cost $590,000 and, for depreciation purposes, the straight-line method was originally chosen. The asset was originally expected to be useful for 10 years and have a zero salvage value. In 2012, the decision was made to change the depreciation method from straight-line to sum-of-the-yearsâ€™ digits, and the estimates relating to useful life and salvage value remained unchanged.
