Oct 25, 2021 Enhancing Opportunity Zone Tax Savings with Cost Segregation
The Tax Management Real Estate Journal, by Bloomberg Tax, recently published the following article titled “Maximizing Tax Benefits with Opportunity Zones and Cost Segregation.” This article, coauthored by Alex Bagne, the president of ICS Tax, LLC and a past president of the American Society of Cost Segregation Professionals, discusses the interplay of these two valuable tax strategies.
Opportunity Zones encourage long-term investments in low-income neighborhoods through private investment by offering tax deferrals on capital gains, basis step-ups, and potentially permanent exclusions from taxable income. Cost Segregation accelerates the timing of tax deductions, which provides immediate tax savings and improves cash flow. When combined, these two tax planning ideas can tremendously increase investment profitability. ICS collaborates with taxpayers and their tax professionals to identify credits and incentives that reduce tax liabilities and increase profitability. We provide nationwide services with offices located throughout the country. » Learn more about Cost Segregation and request an assessment
