Bipartisan Depreciation Bonus Extension Introduced in House


Rep. Patrick Tiberi (R-Ohio) has introduced legislation (H.R. 4196) that would extend 100 percent depreciation bonus through 2012.

Tiberi’s bill is similar to the depreciation bonus language passed by the House during the payroll tax cut extension debate at the end of 2011.

The legislation, supported by AED, would bring distributors several benefits, including:
  • Extending 100 percent depreciation bonus through 2012
  • Removing restrictions to allow more corporate Alternative Minimum Tax credits for capital reinvestment that would otherwise qualify for the depreciation bonus
  • Allowing companies that use the “percentage of completion” accounting method to take advantage of the depreciation bonus
While there is a growing base of bipartisan support on Capitol Hill for extending the depreciation bonus, it is critical that you add your voice to those urging support. Visit www.AEDAction.org to ask your lawmakers to join the effort to extend this important investment incentive through 2012.
