Hi. We recently incorporated and are saving for a large equipment purchase. Someone suggested we open a "sink fund" and we could use the money we have earmarked for this purchase ($20,000) as a tax deduction for this year. Then when we buy the Equipment ($65000 purchase price) we will have already gotten $20,000 depreciation value and so would figure depreciation only on the remaining value of $45,000. Is this correct? Can we save the money in a money market account? What happens if we end up needing the oney for something else, do we just pay the tax on it or is there a penalty? How do we set up this kind of account and what is the technical term for it? Thanks
I am not aware of this type of sinking fund being deductible...
