Is a feedlot considered a single purpose agricultural structure and therefore eligible for the section 179 deduction?

See 2006 publication 225, page 38 to see if your feedlot fits these qualifications.

yes it would be.....OR...if it was constructed using Government EQUIP cost sharing.... then some of the income could be excluded.....rather than expensing the asset purchased.

Excludable.... IF the new assets were for conservation or wildlife and of no economic value.

I would like to expand this thread to include Tobacco Barns.

1. Is a tobacco barn (no processing facilities included) considered 1245 property and therefore deductible under S179?

CA storage (controlled atmosphere) for fruit (apples, pears, etc) - is it single purpose agricultural structure?

I worked for a CPA firm years ago that worked with a lot of orchards. I can't remember the details but I remember 'something' happening that made all the partners excited about deducting ca storage as single purpose agricultural structures. I have been away from the ag industry for a long time and now cannot locate any evidence to support this tax treatment. I don't know if it was a court case, law change. This was about 9 years ago.

Can anyone shine some light on this?
