Rev. Proc. 2020-25 also allows a taxpayer to make a late election—or to revoke or withdraw an election—for the 2018, 2019 or 2020 tax year.

The revenue procedure reflects changes to the depreciation of “qualified improvement property” as made by the “Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act” (CARES Act) (Pub. L. No. 116-136).
