Capital to Expense Reversal


Capital to Expense Reversal is the ability to look-back at items which may have been capitalized (longer depreciation, i.e. 5, 7 or 15 years) since you owned the building and expense them in the current tax year. Under the new Tangible Property regulations, would these expenditures have to be capitalized or could they be expensed? This creates economic opportunities, read = Cash Flow! Let us calculate and implement this for you.
