Commercial Building & Real Estate Incentives

The CORE Building Incentives Program has become the secret weapon for so many CPAs, commercial and multi-family property owners across the US. Our clients using the program are greatly improving CASH FLOW, ROI and ASSET VALUE by unlocking HIDDEN TREASURES trapped within their properties. CORE’s fully integrated managed services platform and technical team will do all the heavy lifting when it comes to improving cash flow

Cost Segregation Study

Cost 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.

Disposition Study

Because of improved tax laws, commercial property owners can now receive lucrative tax incentives when replacing or retrofitting lighting, HVAC equipment and roofing systems. Under the new disposition tax laws, a company now can take a 100% tax deduction on qualified property when being abandoned or disposed of in the current tax year.

CORE will provide all the necessary engineering calculation and documentation required for your business to claim all of this additional depreciation. This hidden treasure can quickly add-up to hundreds of thousands of dollars in new found money that will literally pay for the newly-installed energy efficient technologies.

Property Tax / Appraisal

Many companies pay more in local property taxes than in both sales and income taxes combined, and unfortunately, they assume that it’s just another fixed expense. However, this doesn’t have to be the case. Lowering property taxes by negotiating a fair and equitable assessment is one of the most important steps a company can take to immediately reduce its expenses and increase its cash flow. While most firms pursue income tax strategies, far too few subject property tax assessments to the same degree of scrutiny.

CORE has testified and negotiated property tax reductions with local and state authorities throughout the country for clients including: Hotels, Light and heavy manufacturing, Shopping malls, Chemical and oil refineries, Senior Living Facilities, Office Buildings, and Apartment Buildings.
