Question: Sissie owns two items of business equipment They were both

Sissie owns two items of business equipment. They were both purchased in 2010 for $100,000, both have a seven-year recovery period, and both have an adjusted basis of $37,490. Sissie is considering selling these assets in 2014. One of them is worth $60,000, and the other is worth $23,000. Because both items were used in her business, Sissie simply assumes that the loss on one will be offset against the gain from the other and that the net gain or loss will increase or reduce her business income. Is she correct? Explain.
