Originally signed into law in 1997 and extended through December 31, 2011, Section 198's Brownfields Tax Incentive is a tax deduction intended to encourage the cleanup and revitalization of brownfield properties. Under the incentive, environmental cleanup costs are fully deductible in the year incurred, rather than capitalized and spread over time. Improvements in 2006 expanded the Incentive to include petroleum cleanup.

Tell Congress that Brownfields Redevelopment Tax Incentive Reauthorization Act is important!

Dear

I urge you to publicly pledge to vote for this Bill

It is abundantly clear that the Brownfields Redevelopment Tax Incentives have had a major impact in underserved communities, economic, social and environmental.

Most Sincerely,
