painting building capital expenditureI have one property out of eleven that painted and stained their building this year. No structural repairs. It is not for sale, but an operating restaurant. Could this be capitalized?

For income tax purposes, this would be a stretch.

Heck, even for GAAP I'd have to see it that way.

Let me ask: Why would you want to capitalize this in the first place?
