The 2010 depreciation deduction on the building, sold in June 2010, amounts to \$2,174, based on the following formula: Basis/SL Rate × Months Held = Depreciation on Building \$185,000/39 years × 5.5/12 = \$2,174 Depreciation on car—\$14,000 \$2,800 (2009 depreciation) = \$11,200 × 40% × 1/2 = \$2,240.
