Bonus Depreciation If depreciation was included in the computation of your Federal Adjusted Gross Income and one or more of the depreciable assets received the special 30% or 50% bonus depreciation deduction for federal purposes in any taxable year from 2001 through 2014, then depreciation must be recomputed for Virginia purposes as if such assets did not receive the special 30% or 50% bonus depreciation deduction for federal purposes in any taxable year from 2001 through 2014.
