Tax Benefits for Property Investors

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

As a commercial property investor or owner, there are several IRS sanctioned tax benefits within your reach designed to uncover hidden value and profitability within your investments. ETS specializes in assisting property investment firms and their CPAs to identify areas of tax savings opportunities.

Energy Tax Benefits Services

As a building owner, you may qualify for a tax benefit of up to $1.80 per square foot for improving the energy efficiency of existing buildings or designing high efficiency into new buildings (as stated in the 2005 Energy Policy Act). The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 reinstated the tax deduction through the end of 2017. ETS 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.

Cost Segregation Studies

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.

Insurance Appraisals

As part of our cost segregation study report, ETS provides 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 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. For a free consultation, please call (800) 236-6519.
