Thanks for such an interesting article here. I was searching for something like that for quite a long time and at last I have found it here.


Thank you!


thanks. Regarding the point about sod being depreciable over the life of the residence, what about an instance where it is sod put down on a practice field at a school? I would assume it's depreciable but it's not adjacent to the school building/decorative. It's more of an 'asset' to be put to use. Theoretically, it will last forever but, I assume it's depreciable. thoughts?


Sod that is not close to your house is not deductible at all.

Would bathroom remodeling be considered a form of land improvement?

can you tell me which irs publication specifically states land improvements (such as septic systems) are depreciable over a 15 year period? I can not find the table and my CPA says they must be depreciated over 27.5 years as they are attached to the home.


IRS Publication 946 How to Depreciate Property, on page 33 describes land improvements as being depreciated over 15 years.
