In November, the IRS announced that the safe harbor threshold for deducting certain capital items purchased after January 1, 2016 had been raised from $500 to $2,500 for businesses that do not maintain an applicable financial statement. However, for property tax purposes, businesses are still required to maintain these capital items on their property tax schedules and report the items based on county guidelines. How does this affect my business? The capital item will have a basis for property tax purposes but not for tax or financial statement purposes. The capital items will be maintained on the property tax schedule for property tax reporting. The taxpayer will also need to track the disposal of these items, even if they do not have a basis for tax or financial statement purposes. If you have questions regarding how to track this for your business, please contact our office.
