- What A/E/C Firms Need to Remember About the CARES ActAugust 31, 2020
At this point, so much has happened this year that the CARES Act may seem like old news, yet its tax provisions remain in effect and, in some cases, beyond 2020 (unless subsequent legislation changes them). Careful planning may allow architecture, engineering and construction (A/E/C) firms to fully benefit from the wide and varying tax relief offered.
- An Overlooked Tax Benefit for Construction Firms: Business Interest Limitation ChangesMay 13, 2020
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) of 2017 was generally a taxpayer-friendly legislation for the business community. However, there were several provisions in that Act that were implemented as revenue raisers to partially offset the cost of those tax breaks. One of those revenue raising provisions was the business interest expense limitation. This limitation can potentially impact construction companies of all entity types. The recently passed Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act modified and increased the existing 30% business interest limitation to 50% for the years beginning with 2019 and 2020. For partnerships, this will not apply to years beginning with 2019, but only for 2020.
