Tax Reform Cost Recovery Provisions

Course Description:
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, passed late in 2017, made substantial changes to the tax law including the accounting method and cost recovery provisions. Many taxpayers do not understand the potential impact of the complex cost recovery and accounting method provisions on their business. This topic will help tax professionals understand the accounting method and cost recovery provisions contained in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and identify potential opportunities and risks created by the changes. This material will also outline some of the new deduction limitation provisions and their impact on the taxpayer's cost recovery deductions. Failing to properly understand and plan for the new tax provisions will leave taxpayers unprepared for the significant changes arising from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. This information is critical for taxpayers to understand and identify both the opportunities and risks arising from the new tax legislation so they can effectively manage the impact of the new laws on their business.

Learning Objectives:
- Describe the new deduction limitations under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and their interaction with the cost recovery provisions
- Identify accounting method and cost recovery opportunities arising from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act
- Discuss the immediate expensing and revised cost recovery provisions under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act
