Three Ways to Deduct the Cost of Business Property


Under current law, taxpayers have a variety of options for deducting some or all of the cost of property used in business rather than depreciating it over a period of years. Here’s a quick overview of three of them:

De Minimis Expensing Safe Harbor

Taxpayers with “applicable financial statements” (such as a certified audited financial statement) can deduct up to $5,000 per invoice or item for certain tangible property costs to the extent they deduct them for financial reporting or bookkeeping purposes. Those without applicable financial statements can deduct up to $2,500. Certain exceptions apply.

This safe harbor avoids the need to determine whether low-cost items are deductible or must be capitalized, as well as the need to depreciate large numbers of small-dollar capital asset purchases. It does not, however, preclude the deduction […]

September is National Preparedness Month!

September is National Preparedness Month.  Unfortunately with hurricane season here and the ongoing threat of wildfires in some parts of the country, it is important for us to remind our clients to prepare for natural disasters and have an emergency plan in place.

All taxpayers, from individuals to organizations and businesses, should take time now to create or update their emergency plans.  This plan should include securing and duplicating essential tax and financial documents, creating lists of property, and knowing where to find information once a disaster has occurred.

Be Secure

It is best if you keep critical original documents inside waterproof containers and in a secure place.  Documents such as tax returns, birth certificates, deeds, titles, and insurance policies should also be duplicated and kept with a trusted person outside the area […]

Higher Education Tax Credits

As a new school year approaches, students are considering what classes they need to take and how much those classes will cost.  Whether it’s a community college, a trade school, a four-year university, or an advanced degree, higher education is expensive.  The good news is tax credits can help offset these costs by reducing the amount of tax someone owes.

If taxpayers, their spouses, or their dependents take post-high school coursework, they may be eligible for a tax benefit when they file their tax return next year.

Reach out to us to learn about the two credits available to help you save money on higher education.
