Colorado Springs Monthly Meeting

President Trump signed the new Tax Cuts and Jobs Bill on Dec. 22, effectively putting the final seal of approval on the most substantive tax law changes that the country has seen in 30 years.

It may take some time to crunch the numbers to determine just how much tax savings the new tax bill could generate for commercial real estate investors. The general view is that provisions specific to property owners and developers will deliver a net positive result—although not nearly the windfall that corporations will see with a drop in the tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent.

Looking at the impacts all the way through the tax chain related to individuals, corporations and real estate, it is by far the most significant tax bill since the Tax Reform Act of 1986

On the contrary, it is worrisome that this tax bill could add nearly $1.5 trillion to the deficit over the long term. Another potential downside is if the tax bill contributes to higher inflation and a rise in interest rates, which would make borrowing more expensive for real estate investors.

In February, ICOR welcomes Stephanie Long of Long Law Group to discuss the implications and strategies that investors should be made aware of going into 2018, and a lay of the land given that there is no precedent comparatively speaking with these new tax codes.
