    D. $5,786.

    Explanation:

    The mid-quarter convention applies, so the calculation of property and the machinery is 4 quarter property.

    depreciation expense on property = $15000*0.35

    = $2520

    depreciation expense on machinery = 15000*0.0357

    = $536

    total depreciation expense = $5250 + $536

    = $5786

    Therefore, The maximum depreciation expense, (ignoring §179 and bonus depreciation). (Use MACRS Half-Year Convention) is $5786
