Tax Incentives for Investments in Robotic Automation
 
Investing in robotic automation helps businesses maximize flexibility

Now is the time for investment in robotic automation in the United States.  Recent U.S. tax incentives for capital equipment have been instituted to motivate businesses to accelerate capital spending in 2008.  These tax incentives benefit those small size companies who install capital equipment before January 1, 2009.  Investing in robotic automation provides businesses the flexibility that is required in virtually any manufacturing environment.  You need to be able to handle a wide variety of products, whether it is variety packaging for club stores, assembling a variety of inhaler devices for asthma sufferers, or welding wheelchair frames.

There are a number of articles written by various tax advisors regarding these tax incentives to get you started.
