Specialized Tax Services
Because we are so involved with our clients, we often find ourselves assisting in all phases of their financial lives. For business issues, clients rely on us for everything from business inception to growth to disposition. And in their personal lives, we help clients articulate and map out a plan so that they can achieve their long-term financial goals. Among the specialized services we’re called upon to perform are:
Cost Segregation Studies
Owners of commercial real estate typically depreciate their building construction, renovation or acquisition costs over thirty-nine years. Allan Smith & Company, CPAs PC cost segregation services partners can identify opportunities to reduce federal income taxes in the early years of a building’s life by accelerating federal tax depreciation deductions, with the end result being an increase in cash flow. Our engineering-based studies are supported by IRS regulations, rulings and case law. We will provide an estimate of tax savings through accelerated depreciation before you commit to the project.
Estate planning is a topic many of us tend to put off, but it is a vital tool for determining the what, who and how of your accumulated wealth when you’re gone. And because tax laws that affect estate planning matters change frequently, it is especially important that you seek the advice and assistance of a qualified professional to develop your estate plan.
Allan Smith & Company, CPAs PC provides a wide range of services to assist with estate, business succession and retirement planning. With the resources and commitment to stay on top of tax laws, rulings, planning techniques and more, we are well equipped to help you establish or review your estate plan. We also enjoy working in tandem with your other professional advisors (attorneys, lenders, insurance agents, investment advisors) to be sure that all aspects of your plan are in sync. But perhaps most importantly, we are committed to helping you develop and implement an estate plan that provides you with a high level of security, comfort and assurance.
