In order to generate the Depreciation Tracker, select the available property or enter the data manually.
Select the Property
If you have added the property and its purchase information in the property profile, you will be able to select it from the list and all the fields below will be automatically populated with the purchase information you have entered in the property profile.
Enter Information Manually
If you haven't added the purchase information while creating the property, you can enter the following information manually: purchase amount, start date, depreciable years, and land value.
Fill in the required fields and press "Calculate."
You can view the depreciation schedule in a table or graph and can download both PDF and Excel files of the table, or a PDF of the graph. Press "Clear" to start over.
The Depreciation Tracker does not create any transaction and is not linked to the accounting tool. It is used only to create an amortization schedule based on the information entered.
