Tax Incentives for Commercial & Industrial Roofing

The new tax reform bill created a tax benefit for owners of commercial buildings as of January 1: You may now expense a replacement roof for up to $1,000,000 in the year you replace it!

What This Could Mean for Upson Company's Roofing Projects:

After researching 2018's IRS Section 179 Depreciation Rules, here's Weather Shield Roofing Systems' highlights on how these sweeping changes are relevant to planning your roof replacement. (You may also want to watch the short video on the left of this page for an overview).

  •  Building owners are now able to expense up to $1,000,000 of the cost of qualified improvements to real property placed in service during the taxable year.
  • The new tax law allows 100% expensing of qualified real property improvements placed in service between September 27, 2017, and December 31, 2022.
  • Roof replacements are now included in the definition of qualified real property improvements

Based on these tax changes, 2018 may be an excellent time to replace your roof and reduce your tax liability by 100%. Here's a comparison table showing how tax reform may benefit you more this year than in previous tax years.
