It’s Not Too Late – Claim Your 2016 Tax Break on Modular Buildings!


Maybe you’ve been holding on to the budget, or perhaps you’ve had too much on your plate, but if more space is on your to-do list – don’t delay. Starrco enclosures in place by the end of the year qualify for 100% tax depreciation.

2016 is a bonus tax relief year

This year, Congress is allowing businesses to depreciate up to $500,000 of tangible personal property before December 31st.  For example, if you buy a Starrco enclosure for $20,000, you could write off the full amount and save up to $6,800 on your 2016 tax bill.

This bonus depreciation program is part of the government’s efforts to encourage capital expenditure and stimulate the economy. It comes under Section 179 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Will 2017 be a bonus tax relief year?

Yes. But, you’d have to wait until the end of 2017 to claim your tax relief.  We don’t yet know how much Congress will allow you to depreciate in 2017. It may stay at $500,000, but then again, it may change.

Can this apply to any building project?

No. It cannot be applied to conventional construction projects. They are classified as real property and have a 39-year depreciable life. Starrco modular construction, which can be dismantled and put back together in a new location, qualifies as tangible personal property – that is property that can be moved.
