Depreciation Reserve Deficiency. A depreciation reserve deficiency arises if the currently-estimated useful life of a class of assets is less than that used to determine past depreciation expenses.

This credit increases to 80% in the case of any dividend from a 20% owned corporation. DRD does not apply for individual investors.
