The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) has recently changed federal depreciation and taxes. Thus, now is a good time to re-examine how these topics should be addressed in engineering economy courses. One source to examine for guidance is the set of textbooks most commonly used. There are large commonalities and some surprising differences in coverage among the currently available texts. In choosing what should be covered, instructors and authors must balance providing key details needed for the FE exam or proper analysis of real decisions shortly after graduation and broader principles important forever.
