According to Missouri Revised Statutes, Chapter 137, Section 137.122, a standardized schedule of depreciation will be applied state-wide to depreciable tangible personal property assets. The depreciation rates and schedules are based upon the IRS MACRS tables, as adjusted and adopted by the State legislature. It is important to note that, for tax purposes, assets are never fully depreciated. Assets that have been fully depreciated on your books must continue to be reported at their original cost and acquisition year as long as they are physically located at your place of business.

For a complete text of the above referenced statute, please refer to the State of Missouri website:
