Guide to Expensing Roofing Costs

Roofing costs can be significant expenses for businesses. Tax practitioners should know how to distinguish between deductible repairs and more extensive work that must be capitalized.

By Eddie Price and Gian Pazzia

Tax advice Jerry Jones Roof RepairEach year, tax professionals who deal with real estate must evaluate the most recent building expenditures and determine which items should be written off as a repair expense or capitalized. The most common, and often significant, item that is evaluated is roofing-related work. In many cases, only a portion of the roofing system is replaced, and depending on the facts, those costs may be deducted as repairs. When compared to the alternative option of depreciating the cost over a 27.5-year life for residential rental real estate or a 39-year life for commercial real estate under the modified accelerated cost recovery system, an incorrect conclusion may lead to a significant overpayment of tax liability.

Observation: For the tax professional who has only cryptic invoice descriptions and no direct knowledge of the roof work, assembling the facts and circumstances can be a challenge. The key to properly evaluating the character and nature of the work performed is having a basic understanding of roofing systems and asking insightful questions.

This guide to expensing roofing costs provides tax preparers an outline of questions to ask clients and includes tables to reference when evaluating roof repair costs.
