Keep in mind that there is no guarantee the IRS is going to continue with the accelerated depreciation (Section 179) for 2014. I sure hope they do but who knows. Also, when you accelerate the depreciation to get your net closer to zero the banks should be adding the depreciation back in and not count that against you.
