An intangible asset with an estimated useful life of 30 years was acquired on January 1, 2007, for $540,000. On January 1, 2017, a review was made of intangible assets and their expected service lives, and it was determined that this asset had an estimated useful life of 30 more years from the date of the review. What is the amount of amortization for this intangible in 2017?
There will be two separate computations of the amount of amortization because the asset's projected useful life has changed, and the amount of amortization for this intangible asset in 2017 will be $12,000.
