Our List of Services

FEDERAL

 

  • Cost Segregation Study
This study identifies and reclassifies personal property assets to shorten the depreciation time for taxation purposes, which reduces current income

tax obligations. Personal property assets include a building’s non-structural elements, exterior land improvements and indirect construction costs. The primary goal of a cost segregation study is to identify all construction-related costs that can be depreciated over a shorter tax life (typically 5, 7 and 15 years) than the building (39 years for non-residential real property). Personal property assets found in a cost segregation study generally include items that are affixed to the building but do not relate to the overall operation and maintenance of the building. Please contact us for more information.

 

  • Domestic Production Activity Deduction (DPAD)

Sec. 199 generally provides for an extra deduction of 9% of the income from certain production activities, in addition to the otherwise allowable deduction for production costs. The activities that qualify for this deduction are not limited to what might be thought of as traditional manufacturing but include construction, engineering, architectural services, film production, some utility company activities, and producing certain other qualifying production property.
