2015 Tax Extenders Summary

After months of uncertainty and speculation, it appears Congress has finally sufficiently collaborated to propose the “Tax Extenders” legislation in which a large number of expired tax provisions will be extended, some permanently.  Some tax credits that would be made permanent include the Child Tax Credit, the American Opportunity Tax Credit and the Earned Income Tax Credit

Of particular interest, it appears Section 179 will be permanently fixed at $500,000 of qualified assets for years in which taxpayers place in service up to $2,000,000 of assets.  For amounts above $2,000,000, the Section 179 deduction is reduced dollar for dollar until $2,500,000, at which time no asset additions are eligible.  Bonus depreciation is temporarily extended at 50% for 2015, 2016 and 2017, then stepped down to 40% in 2018 and 30% in 2019, after which time it is scheduled to be completely phased out.

To find out more information about the specifics of the legislation, here are some online resources:
