Start-up and Organization Costs
Start-Up and Organization Costs
Start-up costs are business costs that are incurred for training, travel, professional services, market surveys before the business start date.
Organization costs are amounts paid or incurred to create a corporation or partnership business entity before the entity starts.
The first $5,000 of start-up costs and the first $5,000 of organization costs can be deducted in the year incurred. The deduction is phased out dollar-for-dollar when start-up costs or organization costs exceed $50,000. The remaining amounts are amortized over a 180 month term, starting with the month the active trade or business begins.
