Cost Segregation

cost-seg3-iconCost segregation tax strategy approved by the IRS in 1997 to reclassify specific real property assets that usually receive a depreciation life of 39 years (commercial real property) or 27.5 (commercial residential) into "tangible personal property" that is treated as five (5) year property or land improvements which are treated as fifteen (15) year property for depreciation purposes. Due to improved treatment, portions of the electrical, plumbing, mechanical systems, and site improvements of a building along with hundreds of other components can be allocated into shorter lives translating into immediate cash flow.

Abandonment / Disposition


When you undertake demolition or renovate a building to tear out lighting, HVAC units, and other components, they are abandoned or retired from the building. When assets are retired or removed, they are taken off a company’s books (when you re-light a facility, you essentially remove the old lighting). CORE enables you to calculate the value of these retired assets and provides all of the necessary documentation needed to claim these tax deductions.

EPAcT / Section 179D


If you have installed energy efficiency equipment such as lighting, mechanical and building envelope, you may be eligible to receive $.60 to $1.80 per square foot in the form of a federal tax deduction for buildings that are 35,000 sq V and above. The IRS just recently extended this lucrative incentive retroactive to 2015 through the end of 2016. You may also qualify for a look back study 3 years back. CORE will handle the entire energy certification and verification process.

Property Tax Appeals


CORE’s Tax Appeal Services will review your case at no charge and determine if there could be a sizable reduction in your personal and real estate assessments. Many companies pay more in local property taxes than they do in sales and income tax combined. Lowering property taxes by negotiating a fair and equitable assessment is one of them most important steps a company can take to improve long term cash flow. CORE has been winning tax cases for their clients for over 10 years.

Research Tax Credits


If your company has invested time, money and resources to the advancement and improvement of your company's product or processes, then you likely qualify for the Federal R&D Tax Credit Incentive Program. However, many firms are unaware of how or even what to qualify; thus, the opportunity goes unclaimed. CORE utilizes a comprehensive approach in both quantifying and qualifying credit amounts, which is the recommended approach by IRS (Project by Project approach).

The DPD also called the “Domestic Manufacturing Deduction” or U.S. Production Activities Deduction” was passed into law as a part of the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004 (PL 108-357) effective in tax years beginning after 2004.

Hiring Tax Credits (WOTC)

Your company would receive $3,000 –$9,000 per employee hired.
