Course Description

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) corrected the recovery period of qualified improvement property (QIP) to 15 years. This has tremendous implications and will play a large role in a modern comprehensive tax strategy.

In this session, we will examine the historical treatment of qualified property categories and focus on the current status of QIP under the CARES Act. We will also explore other strategies that may be part of a comprehensive tax strategy and will discuss a strategic hierarchy for employing those strategies successfully. Relevant Rev. Procs. and several real-life case studies will be reviewed.
Learning Objectives:

  • Summarize and understand the history of qualified property categories

  • Determine the implications of the CARES Act’s correction of QIP recovery period

  • Identify how to incorporate retroactive CARES Act changes into past returns

  • Recognize the value of QIP as an indicator of Section 179 eligible property

  • Give examples of how strategies like Section 179 expensing, bonus depreciation, the tangible property regulations (TPRs), and energy incentives all contribute to a comprehensive tax strategy

  • Contrast and compare bonus and Section 179 

  • Practice using various tax strategies in a strategic manner to maximize savings
