2.313 Seven-Year Amortization for Reforestation
Taxpayers may elect to amortize reforestation costs for qualified timber property over a seven-year period. In the absence of this special provision, these costs would be capitalized and depreciated over a longer period or recovered when the timber is sold. The accelerated cost recovery constitutes a tax expenditure, resulting in a deferral of tax or an interest-free loan.
