Disposition

When you undertake demolition or renovate a building and tear out old lighting, HVAC units, and other building parts, these assets are disposed of. As such, their book value can be treated as a business deduction. Tangible personal property within a structure can be written off when a building is demolished or remodeled.  The value must have been identified prior to the demolition and it must not have been purchased with the intent to demolish.
