Abstract: Manufacturers and distributors tend to invest heavily in equipment, technology upgrades and leasehold improvements.

This article provides details on some depreciation-related breaks that have been permanently carved into the IRS rules and others that have been extended for several years. It also highlights the importance of planning ahead to reap the full benefits of the broad-reaching PATH Act.
