Specialty Tax Benefits for Property Investors

Real estate investing can be a risky venture — especially in today’s economy. Engineered Tax Services (ETS) works with property owners to strengthen their investments and increase their return on investment through our specialty tax services.

As a commercial property investor and 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 property investment firms and their CPAs in identify areas of tax savings opportunities.

179D Energy Tax Benefit Services

As a building owner, you may qualify for a tax benefit of up to $1.80 per square foot under 179D EPAct for improving the energy efficiency of existing buildings or designing high efficiency into new buildings (as stated in the 2005 Energy Policy Act).

Our engineers 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 that you can claim your deduction without delay.

Cost Segregation Studies

Cost Segregation uncovers potential tax savings and increases 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. An engineering-based Cost Segregation study provides a higher level of accounting for fixed assets, accelerated depreciation, and disposition of assets moving forward.

DEIRA – Detailed Engineering Insurance Replacement Appraisals

As part of our cost segregation study report, we provide a “Detailed Engineering Insurance Replacement Appraisal (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 Engineered Tax Services (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 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.
