Expense vs Capitalize? The New Regulations
The question is not "what is new?" but "what is not new?" The world of acquiring, repairing, renovating, and improving a building has changed. In 1986, dividing a building into its various components was "out-lawed." As time went by, building owners were able to have Engineering Studies performed and values were assigned to various components of the building for depreciation purposes. We are now in 2016 and the IRS has finalized their Tangible Property Regulations and we have NEW RULES. Instead of components, we have "Building Systems" and "Units of Property."
