Another corporate tax break extension consists of a 50 percent "bonus" depreciation rules for "qualified property." This allows companies to accelerate write-offs for depreciation of new equipment, a benefit that has been in place since 2008.

Willens believes this credit will be a boon to the capital goods industry as it will encourage companies to accelerate purchases to benefit from the write-off.
