Thankyou for choosing Just Answer. I have an easy remedy for you. When looking at the "repairs for 2007" if the repairs were replacing a water heater, light fixture, counter top, dishwasher, etc....these need to be depreciated, THe way to show this is enter in a new line item under the property call it improvements and take them over the useful life of the asset. water heater = $500/10 years $50 a year.
If these are truly repairs, fixed door knob, pay a plumber, these repairs should be expensed not depreciated.
