For example, if the Section 743(b) basis adjustment is allocated to five-year property, the partner can claim bonus depreciation on the Section 743(b) basis adjustment even if the partnership elects out of bonus depreciation for all five-year property. The Proposed Regulations also do not appear to require that a partner's election with respect to its Section 743(b) basis adjustment be the.
In addition, for the tax year that includes September 27, 2017, taxpayers that are otherwise eligible for 100% bonus depreciation can elect to claim 50% bonus depreciation instead. This election differs from the general “election out” provision in that this election, if made, applies to all qualified property of the taxpayer and cannot be made on a class-by-class basis.
The TCJA allows 100% first-year bonus depreciation in Year 1 for qualifying assets placed in service between September 28, 2017, and December 31, 2022. The bonus depreciation percentage will begin to phase out in 2023, dropping 20% each year for four years until it expires at the end of 2026, absent congressional action to extend the break.

Under Rev.

But 27.5-year residential real property and 39-year nonresidential real property is not going to qualify. So for example, you will never be able to claim bonus depreciation on a warehouse, an apartment complex, or an office building. The other big requirement for bonus depreciation is one that was actually eliminated by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act going forward, and this is the original use.
On April 17, the IRS released Revenue Procedure 2020-25 in response to the retroactive assignment of a 15-year recovery period for qualified improvement property (QIP) and the bonus depreciation “glitch-fix.” The term “qualified improvement property” means any improvement made by a taxpayer to an interior portion of a building that is nonresidential real property if such improvement is.
In the year the election is made, it generally is required to cover all property in the same property class that is placed in service during the year, i.e. all 5-year property. When making the election to depreciate assets placed in service under the ADS method, the recovery period of the assets is required to be shifted to the ADS recovery periods.
Depreciation recovery periods apply to 3-, 5-, 7-, 10-, 15-, and 20-year property under the general depreciation system (GDS). The recovery period for residential rental property is 27.5 years and nonresidential real property is 39 years. Straight-line depreciation must be used to depreciate buildings and real estate. Because of convention rules, the actual recovery period is 1 year longer.
