Commercial Revitalization Deduction  (CRD) is one of the many federal tax incentives available to Renewal Community businesses.   
Businesses that construct or rehabilitate commercial property in the Renewal Community can deduct a portion of the cost of acquisition and rehabilitation over a shorter period of time than permitted under standard depreciation rules.

For example, a taxpayer can elect either to deduct one-half of the CRD for the taxable year the building is placed in service or amortize over a 120-month period beginning the month the building is placed in service.

This special deduction provision would be in lieu of depreciating the property over a period up to 39 years.
