Re: from this point of view

Businessmen should be able to deduct depreciation as a business expense but in reality they do not suffer 100% loss of value in the first year. Thus the depreciation loss should be deducted over the life of the item. It seems logical that the expense should only be charged off as it occurs.

 

I don't know that government can afford to give businessmen such a free ride.
