Explanation of Provision
For taxable years beginning in 2010, the provision increases the amount of start-up expenditures a taxpayer can elect to deduct from $5,000 to $10,000 and increases the deduction phase-out threshold such that the $10,000 is reduced (but not below zero) by the amount by which the cumulative cost of start-up expenditures exceeds $60,000.
