Governor Deval Patrick's Budget Recommendation - House 1 Fiscal Year 2014

1.303 -Modified Accelerated Depreciation on Buildings (other than Rental Housing)

Item DescriptionFY2012 FY2013 FY2014
1.303 Modified Accelerated Depreciation on Buildings (other than Rental Housing)
Individuals or investors in a trade or business may use accelerated methods of depreciation for buildings. Construction may be depreciated under methods that produce faster depreciation than economic depreciation. The precise rates have been changed repeatedly in recent years as the result of revisions in the federal tax code. Structures (other than rental housing) placed in service after 1987 are depreciated on a straight-line basis over a 31.5-year life. The excess of accelerated depreciation over economic depreciation is a tax expenditure, resulting in a deferral of tax or an interest-free loan.
