Many economic pundits tell us the recession has ended and that growth should resume in the 3rd quarter. Hopefully that’s true for the economy and for you specifically. But with all the “stimulus” and money being injected into the world economies, it’s probably a good idea to keep our seat belts fastened for the next jolt: inflation.

So you want a bail out from Washington? Well you already have one. Congress increased the limits of the Section 179 depreciation provision AND included a new wrinkle providing for “50% bonus depreciation”. What’s the catch? You have to take delivery of new equipment, etc. before the end of the year. Is this the time to buy a CSS Music library or what? If you think you have a tax problem, this is definitely the…
