“(7) INFLATION ADJUSTMENT.—In the case of any taxable year beginning after December 31, 2019, the $15,000 amount in paragraph (6)(B) shall be increased by an amount equal to—

“(B) the cost-of-living adjustment determined under section 1(f)(3) for the calendar year in which the taxable year begins, determined by substituting ‘calendar year 2018’ for ‘calendar year 2016’ in subparagraph (A)(ii) thereof.

If any amount as adjusted under the preceding sentence is not a multiple of $100, such amount shall be rounded to the next lowest multiple of $100.”.

(c) Effective date.—The amendments made by this section shall apply to taxable years beginning after December 31, 2018.
