JA Welcomes Legislation on Store Improvements

05 january 2016
Jewelers of America (JA) has welcomed a permanent extension to the depreciation of store-improvement expenses over a shorter period of time, a change retailers have fought for more than a decade to stay competitive.
The measure enables sellers to continue to write off improvements on stores over 15 years instead of the 39 years that had previously been mandated, JA said in a statement December 18. The amendment was part of a year-end tax extenders bill passed by the U.S. Congress.
JA said the extension was a victory for the trade association, which has been fighting for more than a decade to make the depreciation provision permanent.
“Jewelers of America welcomes the permanent extension of this important depreciation measure,” said David J. Bonaparte, president and chief executive officer of JA. “It helps jewelers – whether they rent or own their retail space – to update their stores more often to stay competitive.”
