By performing repair and maintenance analyses, fixed asset studies, and earnings and profit analyses, this team identifies opportunities for your business to minimize federal tax obligations. At the same time, through a cost segregation analysis of your personal and real property, we may discover ways to defer taxes, increasing cash flow to your business.
