Tax Tip: New Tax Rules for Improving Commercial Property

New for 2016, the IRS added a new classification for building remodeling costs.  Qualified Improvement Property is defined as any improvement to an interior portion of a building that is nonresidential real property as long as the improvement is placed in service after the building was first placed in service by any taxpayer.  There are a few other excluded expenditures.  While this new classification of property is still depreciable over 39 years, it is eligible for 50% bonus depreciation if completed in 2016 or 2017.  This is a great incentive to get remodeling projects that you have been putting off done today.
