to Revive Expired Tax Breaks for 2015?
Congress returning from its August recess, this is the
question on tax-savvy Americans' minds.
Many valuable tax breaks aren't
permanent, so Congress has to pass legislation extending them
to keep them in effect. Unfortunately, Congress often waits
until the last minute to do so.
For example, Congress didn't pass 2014 extenders until
December 2014, making the legislation retroactive to January
1, 2014 — but not extending the breaks to 2015.
So we're again in a waiting game to
see what will happen with extenders legislation.
Some believe Congress will act soon, while others think we'll
again be waiting until December.
Here are several expired breaks that may benefit you or
your business if extended:
- The deduction for state and local sales taxes in lieu of
state and local income taxes,
- Tax-free IRA distributions to charities,
- 100% bonus depreciation,
- Enhanced Section 179 expensing,
- Accelerated depreciation for qualified leasehold
improvement, restaurant and retail improvement property,
- The research tax credit,
- The Work Opportunity tax credit, and
- Various energy-related tax incentives.
Please check back with us for the latest information. Keep in
mind that quick action after extenders legislation is passed
may be required in order to take maximum advantage of the
