A type of asset depreciation is the Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System. Currently, you may be questioning what depreciation actually is. A good query! We advise paying attention to the Internal Revenue Service’s perspective on the matter:
So any physical object, be it a car, a TV, or even solar panels, loses value with time, especially as you use it. According to tax law, depreciation is a means to reduce your taxable income. To depreciate an asset’s worth, you take the amount by which it has lost value and “allocate” it to a certain time period, such as a year, when the asset was still contributing value.
How does solar-related MACRS operate?
With MACRS, you can recover the costs in a shorter amount of time—in the case of solar, five years. In the case of solar investment, you would invest in solar and reduce your taxes over a five-year period based on the amount you spend on solar. The advantage of MACRS is that it allows you to pay less in taxes each year.
On how MACRS relates to companies who invest in solar, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) offers highly detailed guidelines. You must take into account how the solar investment tax credit (ITC) will affect the amount of the investment that you can write off as a deduction.
The amount of the investment that can be depreciated must be reduced by half the amount of the ITC you claim if you use the ITC on your solar project (26 percent through 2022, 22 percent in 2023, and 10 percent for commercial projects into the future). Alternatively put, by 13% through 2022, 11% in 2023, and 5% after that. The solar project’s depreciable basis, which is calculated over five years, will therefore be 87 percent of the cost through 2022, 89 percent in 2023, and 95 percent beyond that.
