The COVID-19 pandemic has had a dramatic and devastating impact on the economy, and making sense of the shifting impacts is crucial for navigating a path forward for the real estate industry. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act was signed into law March 27, 2020 which includes a significant number of tax and other provisions designed to support businesses and individuals impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
Recent tax code changes have impacted numerous tax incentives, including :
The budget bill passed in December of 2019 extended a number of incentives for energy efficiency, and the CARES Act revised the Qualified Improvement Property rules retroactively to 2018.
Join this FREE CPE webinar for a deep-dive into real estate topics and issues that have come to the forefront during COVID-19. This in-depth session will examine which tax provisions enacted under the CARES Act will have the most impact on the commercial real estate industry.

Heidi Henderson will also discuss how business owners can generate additional cash flow during the COVID-19 shutdown by utilizing the 5 year carry-back for NOL's.

Engineered Tax Services, Inc. (ETS) is a licensed engineering firm that focuses on federal, state, and local tax benefits. Engineered Tax Services was founded by CEO, Julio Gonzales, to bring specialty tax engineering services to mainstream America. There are several federal tax incentives in which the IRS requires professional engineers and scientists to determine the tax benefits in the areas of real estate and manufacturing. Specific to real estate is the ability to depreciate real estate investments by components vs. the traditional expensing of real estate over a 39 or 27.5-year period. A forensic engineering study of a real estate property, in which the building is depreciated component by component, allows investors to expense up to 50% (and in some cases, more because of 100% bonus depreciation) of the purchase of their building up front.Decades ago, cost segregation was only available to real estate investors who worked with the Big 4 accounting firms who had dedicated engineering staffs. Mr. Gonzalez’s goal was to be a resource to the CPA community so that these services could be available to all real estate investors, big or small. Cost segregation continues to be one of the largest tax incentives for wealth preservation. There are very few investments that the United States Federal government allows investors to expense dollar for dollar. Real estate is the one investment from which you can deduct 100% of the purchase price against taxable income. Inherently, this allows for a 50% return on investment at a 50% federal and state tax bracket. Cost segregation allows the investor the ability to mitigate tax liabilities and preserve wealth by accelerating these deductions much quicker.
Engineered Tax Services also uses its engineering, scientific and tax team to provide one of the most important federal and state tax credits available to United States businesses in the form of research and development tax credits (R&D). R&D Tax Credits are meant to incentivize manufacturing, innovation and technical design in the United States. These credits are essential to keep labor and promote job creation in the United States. Qualifying activities include developing new or improved products or manufacturing processes, tool and die development, technical design in the construction industry, software development, fracking and drilling technique development, and developing new or improved drugs or formulas, just to name a few. The R&D Tax Credit is a very important federal incentive meant to ensure that US companies remain competitive globally.
Mr. Gonzalez’s vision was to first bring awareness to mainstream America through education of the accounting firms across our country. Over the decades, Engineered Tax Services has become the country leader in these services that increase cash flow to allow for United States job growth and expansion.
