INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Recovery Property'

The ACRS recovery period for recovery property has long-since expired, and all real estate that qualified as recovery property is now fully depreciated. As a result, any ACRS recovery property that is now declared on a tax return should be carefully investigated to ensure validity. ACRS was replaced by the Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS) in 1986.
