Asset life evaluation regarding depreciation

Oct 12th, 2015
Price: $15 USD

Question description

The IRS is reevaluating the asset life categories used for ACRS depreciation. The trucks that JK Industries use are currently classified by the IRS as having an asset life of 7 years. Because these trucks actually last for 10 years, the firm’s managers would prefer the IRS to reclassify them as 10-year assets so the firm can keep them longer, spread the cost of depreciation over more years and hence increase earnings.  (True, False, Uncertain and explain your response)
