New 100-percent depreciation deduction for businesses

Tax reform legislation includes changes that affect a business’ bottom line. One of these changes allows businesses to write off most depreciable business assets in the year they place them in service.

Here are some facts about this deduction:

  • The 100-percent depreciation deduction generally applies to depreciable business assets and certain other property.
     
  • Machinery, equipment, computers, appliances and furniture generally qualify.
     
  • The deduction is retroactive for qualifying property acquired and placed in service after Sept. 27, 2017.
     
  • Taxpayers who elect out of the 100-percent depreciation deduction must do so on a timely filed return.
