While I agree with the recommendation to get help on the first time through the depreciation maze, I disagree with the comment regarding TurboTax (from which I get no commission). If you go through the interview process and pay close attention, plus read the pubs (and other documentation provided in their 'deluxe' version) you will be in a much better position to benefit from the help you get from the tax professional you select.

The reason I took up this "work" as a sideline is that I finally discovered that the CPA I was paying a bunch soley to handle the depreciation, was 'stretching' (read ignoring) the rules, apparently under the misapprehension that he was doing me a favor. It's a lttle like health care, you can get yourself educated or you can go for three opinions and hope that two of them agree.
