Question
Rhode Island Section 179 Depreciation

Answer

Rhode Island passed a bill disallowing the increase in the Section 179 depreciation under the Jobs & Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2003. Section 179 depreciation will remain limited to $25,000 for Rhode Island income tax purposes. When filing your Rhode Island tax return any additional Section 179 depreciation taken must be added back to federal adjusted gross income as a modification on RI Schedule I, line 23E. In subsequent years, when federal depreciation is less than what previously would have been allowed, the difference may be deducted from federal adjusted income as a modification RI-1040, schedule M, line 2J.

A separate schedule of depreciation must be kept for Rhode Island purposes. The gain or loss on the sale or other disposition of the asset is to be determined, for Rhode Island purposes, using the Rhode Island depreciation schedule.

Legislation passed in July of 2013 sets Rhode Island to conform with the federal Section 179 deduction amounts for all assets placed in service on or after January 1, 2014.
