Journal entries to record the sale of a fixed asset with Section 179 deduction
Hi and thank you for your response!
I've read the Tax Guides and I understand that I took all the depreciation, but since I sold the asset earlier than the 5 years life of the asset, I have to calculate or recapture the amount of excess depreciation that I took and I am required to claim as income. This is where the question about claiming 1/2 of the 2018 depreciation comes from.
Putting that question aside, I am struggling to understand the GJ entry to show the recapture of the excess depreciation.
