Help make brownfields cleanup more affordable

Cleaning up contaminated land helps the economy and the environment, but these projects are often complicated and can be prohibitively expensive.

In 1997, Congress passed the Brownfields Tax Incentive to make these projects more affordable. The Incentive allowed taxpayers to fully deduct the costs of brownfield sites’ environmental cleanup the year the costs were incurred. Unfortunately, the Incentive ended in 2011.

The Brownfields Redevelopment Tax Incentive Reauthorization Act of 2015 (H.R. 2002) would reinstate the Brownfields Tax Incentive to once again help taxpayers get brownfield sites ready for redevelopment. Voice your support for this bill—use the form below to send a letter to your Representatives.
