There are various approaches that might help you.

If TurboTax 2015 has access to the .tax2014 file from TurboTax 2014, it will properly maintain the depreciation schedules. Otherwise, you'll need to look at the Depreciation report and AMT Depreciation report from 2014, whether or not printed. If you still have TT 2014 and the .tax2014 file, you can generate those forms. Those are the ones that map into lines on form 6251.
