On November 4 2012 Blue Company acquired an asset 27 5 year
On November 4, 2012, Blue Company acquired an asset (27.5-year residential real property) for $200,000 for use in its business. In 2012 and 2013, respectively, Blue took $642 and $5,128 of cost recovery. These amounts were incorrect; Blue applied the wrong percentages (i.e., those for 39-year rather than 27.5-year property). Blue should have taken $910 and $7,272 of cost recovery in 2012 and 2013, respectively. On January 1, 2014, the asset was sold for $180,000. Calculate the gain or loss on the sale of the asset in 2014.
