Two of our most popular services are Cost Segregation and Property Tax Mitigation.
Why Cost Segregation Important?
I’m not sure if you have been following the tax code changes, but, a cost segregation filed with your 2017 taxes is worth 40% more than the one you will file for next year, and thereafter. The value of your depreciation as a whole just took a serious hit with the tax changes, and this is the last year you are allowed to do a “catch up” and reclaim all that money.
You did those buildings, building purchases, and remodeling during years when the tax rates were at their highest, and depreciated things under the assumption that you would get those deductions “over time”. Now due to the tax changes you still get some of your money, but it’s at 21% instead of 35%, therefore a 40% loss of deductions comparing next year to this year.
I would seriously consider moving on this quickly if I were you.
Why is Property Tax Mitigation Important?
The Commercial Property benefit is a Federal program designed for business owners who own commercial properties, or have performed significant lease hold improvements. This program traces it’s roots as far back as the Tax Reform of 1986, but went through significant changes in 2004 making it more accessible for small and midsize property owners to take advantage of. The most recent changes appeared as late as February 2009 in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. This is an engineered based program that focuses on the components of the building. 90% of all commercial properties qualify for this program. Commercial Property Benefit provides an opportunity to significantly reduce federal taxes and improve case flow.
Outside of income taxes, the single largest recurring charge for commercial property owners are Property Taxes. In most states, owners are required to pay taxes on both their real estate as well as their personal property. These charges are often an immense expense and a constant hit to their bottom line. To be ensured clients are not being overcharged on Property Taxes, we use an industry specialist with extensive market experience in valuation, tax and law to perform their Property Tax Mitigation. Oh any by the way, Property Taxes make up over one-third of taxes paid by U.S. Businesses and are often overcharged by 15% – 20%. Our Average Client Receives Over $240,000 in Benefits.

The Manufacturing Incentives benefit is a Federal program designed for companies that perform manufacturing in the U.S. This program is listed under Section 41 of the IRC (Internal Revenue Code) and continues to be amended on an annual basis as the U.S. manufacturing landscape continues to evolve. This is an engineered based program that focuses on a company’s operations and processes in order to determine their qualification for incentives. The Manufacturing Incentives benefit provides an avenue to receive ‘tax money’ back from prior years while also reducing current taxable income on a dollar-for-dollar basis.
