Tax Benefits for Auto Dealerships – Increase Your ROI

Without engineering-based tax services, auto dealership commercial property owners are unable to take full advantage of the tax law; therefore, they surrender maximum ROI to the IRS.

Real estate investing can be a risky venture, especially in today’s economy. Engineered Tax Services (ETS) can help you strengthen your investments and increase ROI through our specialty tax services.

As a commercial property investor/owner, there are several IRS-sanctioned tax benefits within your reach designed to uncover hidden value and profitability within your investments. We specialize in assisting auto dealership property owners and their CPAs by identifying tax saving opportunities.


As a building owner, you may qualify for a tax benefit of up to $1.80 per square feet for improving the energy efficiency of existing buildings or designing high efficiency into new buildings for properties placed into service prior to December 31, 2013. Our engineers will help you assess your eligibility, explain the IRS guidelines and work with you through the certification process. ETS is certified by the IRS for the Energy Certification Process so you can claim your deduction without delay.


Your commercial property has assets which have probably been overlooked – per the IRS. Through our cost segregation studies, we work to uncover potential tax savings and increase cash flow through reclassification and depreciation of property. ETS provides a “Detailed Engineering” review as part of our reporting process and works seamlessly with the IRS and your CPA firm for minimal disruption to your business.


As part of our cost segregation study report, ETS provides a “Detailed Engineering Insurance Replacement Appraisal,” also known as DEIRA, that is accepted by national insurance company underwriters to establish accurate property valuations, reduce and/or eliminate disagreements following a covered loss, and most importantly, reduce premiums while improving coverage terms and conditions.

At ETS, we partner with property investors nationally to provide independent, third-party certification as required by the IRS to help them take advantage of significant tax benefits.

Our experienced team of engineers can help you assess past, current and future projects for tax benefits and guide you through the reporting and certification process. ETS works in collaboration with your CPA firm to ensure the process of obtaining your tax benefits follows legislation guidelines. We are approved for the Energy Efficiency Certification Process, and possess the intricate, engineering-based skills needed to help our clients take advantage of specialty tax services resulting in increased profitability for their businesses.


We specialize in providing a wide spectrum of engineered accounting solutions such as energy tax credits, cost segregation studies, construction audits and insurance appraisals. ETS is a licensed engineering firm with professionally staffed engineers who marry the science of engineering with the principles of tax and accounting to arrive at financial solutions resulting in increased cash flow, minimized tax payments and increased ROI.
