Regarding non-renewable natural resources, the Tax Code provides a special amortization rule according to which necessary investments for their acquisition, exploration and exploitation may be amortized by applying the unit-of-production method or the straight-line method over a period of no less than 5 years. For unsuccessful results, the associated investments may be amortized immediately or no later than during the following 2 years.
