News from CSSI on New Regulations

Category: General

Published: Feb 20, 2013

News Alert from CSSI Revenue Procedures 2012-19 & 2012-20

The new regulations may mean significant tax savings for your clients. CSSI is making CPA’s aware of
how to implement these new regulations for their clients. The good news, CSSI has made it simple. Temporary regulations were published in December 2011 that impact owners of real property. These temporary regulations are known as T.D 9564 and their purpose is to clarify Sec 263(a) rules of capital expenditures. In March 2012, Revenue Procedures 2012-19 & 2012-20 were published to provide guidance on implementing the new temporary regulations through the Change in Accounting Form 3115. The new regulations make available tax benefits to commercial property owners through favorable rulings on building improvement and repairs and building component dispositions.

A Cost Segregation Study can be the key to unlocking these new tax benefits. A Cost Segregation study will allow the commercial property owner to take advantage of the new capital improvement guidelines. Old regulations defined an improvement as an expenditure that betters a unit of property, restores a unit of property, or adapts a unit of property to a new or different use. The new regulations expand these guidelines to building structures to be specific to building systems or units of property that make up the building structure. Building systems or units of property are defined as HVAC systems, plumbing systems, electrical systems, escalators/elevators, roof systems, lighting, flooring, and any other structural component defined through a cost segregation study. Improvements and repairs conducted on the building are either capitalized or expensed depending on its effect on the unit of property. Qualitative tests are performed based on the cost of the unit of property and the current expenditure is either capitalized or expensed. Of course, an expense is more favorable to the owner. The new regulations will allow for the expensing of repairs and maintenance to a unit of property, but the unit of property must be defined in order to allow for this. A Cost Segregation Study will define the units of property within the building allowing the owner to take advantage of this portion of the new tangible property regulations.

In addition to favorable capital improvement regulations, the tangible property regulations now allow for disposed of building components to be deducted up to their remaining depreciable basis. Through a Cost Segregation Study, disposed of building components’ costs can be correctly identified so the commercial property owner can accurately deduct the remaining depreciable basis of these components. If a Cost Segregation Study is not performed, the costs of the disposed of building components could not be correctly identified resulting in no deduction for the commercial property owner. Revenue Procedures 2012-19 & 2012-20 create further tax benefits by allowing the commercial property owner to claim deductions of previously retired building components. This deduction is realized on the Change in Accounting Form 3115. These Revenue Procedures also allow the filing of multiple 3115 forms in 2012 and 2013. Again, a Cost Segregation study will be needed to determine the correct cost of the previously disposed of building components.

In conclusion, the new tangible property regulations can provide great tax benefits to commercial property owners, and a Cost Segregation Study is the preferred method in obtaining these tax benefits. The commercial property owner will be able to elect to follow these new regulations through a 3115 even if they are not currently making any changes related to repair and maintenance expenditures. The 3115 can also include the change to Cost Segregation deprecation since Revenue Procedures 2012-19 & 2012-20 allow for multiple 3115s in the tax years of 2012 and 2013.
