Thanks.

So he wants to make up for the tax he owes by expensing a huge amount of improvements he made to his vacation rental. Normally it looks like it must be depreciated over 39 years. But why isn't Turbo Tax offering to allow him the Section 179 deduction?

Stuff like:
Construction costs
Furnishings
Landscaping
Etc.

Thanks,
RB
