Audra elects § 179 for Asset C. Audra's taxable income from her business would not create a limitation for purposes of the § 179 deduction. Audra takes additional first year depreciation. Determine her total cost recovery deduction (including section 179 deduction) for the year. 
Cost recovery refers to the deduction of a portion of the cost of an asset, used in a business or for the production of income, over its useful life through depreciation, amortization, or depletion. 
Depreciation is allowed for most tangible assets that are used in a trade or business or held for the production of income and that have a useful life greater than 1 year, including realty, which is land or buildings or other permanent structures on the land, and personalty, which includes all other tangible assets.
