Course Description

Understanding Cost Segregation, Repairs vs Capitalization, 179D EPAct, and Disposition of Assets.

This presentation will provide a high level overview of the repair regulations and the taxpayer friendly opportunities they have created. This includes the broadened application of Cost Segregation, qualifying activities for routine maintenance and repairs, partial asset disposition (PAD), energy efficient building incentives, and our current window of opportunity for adjustments and compliance. 

The presentation is designed to give clarity and awareness to the preferred method of depreciation and capitalization of repair & maintenance items, a property’s building systems and the proper handling of assets after renovation or retrofit. The objectives are to ensure that attendees clearly understand available incentives, can identify applicable situations, and have clear examples for how they benefit property owners.
