Updates to the Tax Cuts and Job Act for 2019

April 22, 2019 2:35 pm


Take advantage of the tax reform for your roof improvements in 2019! On December 22, 2017, the most sweeping tax legislation since the Tax Reform Act of 1986 was signed into law. The national tax reform bill features pro-growth adjustments for businesses, and the roofing industry is one of the benefiting parties. Better known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the bill features enhanced deductions under Section 179 that lower the cost of commercial property improvements, including the roof.

The IRS released the updated 2019 figures to account for inflation. The maximum deduction for taxable years beginning in 2019 is $1,020,000 and the phased-out threshold is now $2,550,000. Click here to download our infographic to learn more about how the expanded Section 179 can boost the tax benefits of your nonresidential roof.
