I read a few responses to questions regarding depreciation treatment on new carpeting, window replacement...etc. when the property owners were preparing the units to rent for the first time. However the situations described does not apply to me since my property was tenants occupied when I purchased it. In my case, I had contractors replaced one window and installed all new carpeting after the original tenants moved out but before the another tenant moved in.
Am I allowed to take 27.5 year depreciation (my preference) or must I take 5-year depreciation on:
1) the window?
2) the new carpet?
