Decelerating Depreciation Rates

Under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), bonus depreciation for personal property in non-residential buildings was set at 100% through 2022. Buildings placed into service by 12/31/22 are the last to receive this percentage.

In 2023, when a building is acquired, renovated, and placed into service, bonus depreciation will be reduced to 80%. And percentages will continue to decrease each year:

In 2024 it will drop to 60%

In 2025 it will drop to 40%

In 2026 it will drop to 20%

In 2027 and beyond it will be 0%

As you are working with your clients this tax season, encourage them to get buildings into service as quickly as they can in order to get the most out of a cost segregation study.
