TT Business 2017 calculating depreciation for an rental asset wrong

I am working on a tax return for a trust that has a rental property. It also has an asset added to that rental property that is not being calculated correctly.  The rental property was previously under my mother's personal tax returns while living, but now that she is deceased they are under the trust.


If I add an asset to the rental property (commercial/non-residential) with a date that the asset was put in service as 11/10/2013, and a initial cost of $30,000, it calculates a total deduction for 2017 as $96. I doesn't ask how much depreciation was taken in previous years and this $96 amount is ridiculously low.


What is going on?
