How the Tax Cut and Jobs Act changed Cost Segregation

The Tax Cut and Jobs Act (TCJA) added several provisions to the IRS code including the Section 179 deduction, which allows business owners to take a bonus depreciation of 100% for qualified assets in the first year (as defined by a cost segregation study) rather than depreciating the assets over a longer period of time. This 100% bonus deduction is only available until 2022 and will then be slowly phased out until it is completely gone by 2027.
