As the rale at which dcpiecia- Ijjl lion may be claimed is dependent upon Pi local conditions, the use to which the property is put and its probable life- I time under normal business conditions f , no specific rale Is established by the ! law ..or regulations. The word "de- preclation" is not used in the law, which provides a "reasonable allow ii' nnce for exhaustion, wear and tear of j : properly used in trade or business, in- f eluding a reasonable allowance foi ob- i solescence." j- ..To compute the amount of deprecia- I, ion which may be claimed, a taxpayer f: ahould determine the probable Hfe- 1 time of the property, then divide the I number of years it will be usable in I3ie business in which employed. The j result thus obtained will represent the amount which may be claimed as a deduction. For. example, a frame build ing, the probable lifetime of which without repair or replacement is 25 years, cost $5000. Divide by 25 and claim $200 each year as an exemp tion. Average Depreciation. While each taxpayer must determine the probable lifetime of his property, without regard to the following figures it has been estimated that the average usable lifetime of a frame building is 25 years; a brick building 35 years; a. stone, steel, or concrete building,' 50 to 100 years. The estimated life of ordinary machinery is 10 years, that of automobiles used for business or farm purposes and farm tractors, -l to 5 years. If a taxpayer claims the full amount of depreciation he can not claim as a deduction the cost of repairs to the property during the same year.

Ml wishes to claim a deduction on ac count of repairs, their cost must be deducted from the full amount of de preciation, and the balance may be claimed under the heading of "Depre ciation." 'Repairs" in this connection means repairs and replacements of a kind tending to make good the de preciation, such as a new flooring or new roof. Small items such as re placements or broken windows, paper- ing, and minor rcpairfl arc allowable, j even though the full amount of depre ciation is claimed. Principles to Be Observed. In claiming depreciation tho follow ing fundamental principles must be observed: Only such depreciation as results from exhaustion, wear, and tear of properly arising out of its use in busi ness or trade Is allowed. Depreciation in the value of a home, or property such as automobiles used for pleasure or convenience can not bo claimed. Depreciation due to changes in the social or business conditions or a neighborhood, or changes or street grade, or fluctuations in market values can not be claimed. Depreciation in the value of land, whether Improved of unimproved, due to erosion, exhaustion, or any other cause can not be claimed- When, In (he course of year3. the owner of property has claimed its full cost as depreciation, no rurther claim will be allowed. The value to be cared ror'by depre- 1 ciation Is the actual amount invested ! in the property. 00 I buy Liberty bonds at highest prices. If you have bonds for sale see me. J. J.
