Modified Accelerated

Cost Recovery System (MACRS) This is the current method of accelerated asset depreciation required by the United States income tax code. Under MACRS, all assets are divided into classes which dictate the number of years over which an asset's cost will be recovered. MACRS allows for more depreciation towards the beginning of the life of the capital asset (similar to double declining balance), allowing the tax deductible depreciation expense to be taken sooner, thus increasing the Net Present Value of the capital purchase and allowing a company to retain more income early in the depreciation cycle. In essence, this is a more heavily "front loaded" tax benefit.
