In a case where bonus depreciation has be adde to an asset by mistake and depreciation has been run, you can use the asset transaction screen to reverse the depreciation for the bonus id.
Consider the following example:

1. You create an asset that is assigned bonus depreciation and scheduled to be taken.  You depreciate this asset and the bonus depreciation is calculated and recorded:

2.  You determine that the bonus depreciation should not have been added to this asset and it should be reversed.

3.  To do this, use the Asset Transactions screen and set it up as seen below.  You must MANUALLY key in the bonus ID used into the depreciation method field.  You DO NOT want to use the regular depreciation method ID or the regular depreciation amount taken for the asset will be reduced and not the bonus.
