Tartaglia, CPA Mar, You may often find yourself asking the question "How do I distinguish a capital purchase from a repair expense"? There has been much debate and controversy not to mention a number of court cases regarding whether, or to what extent, the amounts paid to restore or improve property are capital expenditures or deductible ordinary and necessary repair and maintenance expenses.
Well, on December 23, the IRS provided guidance to help us answer this question by issuing temporary and proposed regulations T.
These regulations are effective on January 1, and provide some "bright-line" tests to clarify what is capital as opposed to what would be considered a repair and routine maintenance. General Principle of Capitalization: The IRS indicates what constitutes a real property capital improvement as follows: Fixing a defect or design flaw Creating an addition, physical enlargement or expansion Creating an increase in capacity, productivity or efficiency Rebuilding property after the end of its economic useful life Replacing a major component or structural part of the property Adapting property to a new or different use The proposed regulations business planning taxation 2016 honda capitalization of amounts paid to acquire, produce, or improve tangible real and personal property, including amounts paid to facilitate closing costs the acquisition of tangible property.
Under the proposed regulations these improvement standards are applied to the building itself and individually to its structural components such as heating and ventilation, plumbing, electrical, fire protection and security systems and escalators and elevators.
Also the new regulations will allow the dispositions of component parts of a building resulting in the recognition of a gain or loss upon the retirement of such component.
The proposed regulation also provides a "safe harbor" for routine maintenance. It indicates that recurring activities inspection, cleaning, testing, replacing parts, and so on that are expected to be performed as a result of the use of property to keep the property in its ordinarily operating condition aren't capital improvements.
The activity is considered routine if, at the time the property was placed in service, the taxpayer reasonably expected to perform the activity more than once during the property's life.
The following table summarizes many of the factual considerations used by the courts. These factors, although not exhaustive, should be considered in your analysis to distinguish between capital expenditures and deductible repairs.
Under the proposed de minimis rule, a taxpayer is not required to capitalize amounts paid for the acquisition or production including any amounts paid to facilitate the acquisition or production of a unit of property if: The taxpayer had an applicable financial statement AFS as defined in the regulation; The taxpayer had, at the beginning of the taxable year, written accounting procedures treating as an expense for non-tax purposes the amounts paid for property costing less than a certain dollar amount; The taxpayer treated the amounts paid during the taxable year as an expense on its AFS in accordance with its written accounting procedures; and The total aggregate of amounts paid and not capitalized for the taxable year under this provision did not distort the taxpayer's income for the taxable year the "no distortion requirement".
The aggregate of amounts paid and not capitalized must be less than or equal to the greater of 0.
These temporary and proposed regulations are very complex and must be applied using individual facts and circumstances. Please contact the tax professionals at Dermody, Burke and Brown CPAs with any questions you have regarding the new regulations.
