Exercise 7. The Milton Company takes a full year's depreciation expense in the year of an asset's acquisition, and no depreciation expense in the year of disposition. Data relating to one of Milton's depreciable assets at December 31, 2017, are as follows:
Acquisition year 2013
Residual value 11,000
Accumulated depreciation 83,897
Estimated useful life 8 years
Using the same depreciation method as used in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017, how much depreciation expense should Milton record in 2018 for this asset. Hint: You will need to first determine the depreciation method that was used. There is enough information above to determine the method.
