2012 Taxpayer Relief Act Changes to Bonus Depreciation and Code Sec. 179 Expense

Congress has enacted the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 (2012 Taxpayer Relief Act), which provides significantly increased incentives for business investment in capital and equipment.

The 2012 Taxpayer Relief Act extends the 50-percent first-year bonus depreciation allowance for one year to apply to qualifying property placed in service through 2013 (through 2014 for certain longer-lived and transportation property). The bonus depreciation allowance rate of 50 percent remains unchanged.

Under the extension provisions, a corporation also is permitted to increase the minimum tax credit limitation by the bonus depreciation amount with respect to certain property placed in service after December 31, 2007 and before January 1, 2014 (January 1, 2015 in the case of longer-lived and transportation property).
