Coordinating Incentives 179D, Cost Segregation, and R&D

Coordinating Incentives 179D, Cost Segregation, and R&D

Instead of looking to outside funding sources or reducing valuable equity to fund energy efficient upgrades or systems, it makes sense to enlist the skill and knowledge of qualified professionals to coordinate building improvement and incentives. Whether in the planning and design stages of a new facility or making decisions on retrofits or upgrades of existing commercial buildings, working with these pros may allow commercial building owners to not only pinpoint the most efficient improvements, but also create a cohesive plan to ensure that maximum tax benefits such as §179D, Cost Segregation, and R&E, are captured.

Many business owners may assume that funding for building upgrades must come from dipping into equity in the facility, or from an outside funding source such as a bank loan. Fortunately, there are alternative strategies that may be employed to pay for building upgrades by significantly lowering the tax liability including:

  • Reclassification of Real Property (Cost Segregation)
  • Abandonment
  • Tangible Property
  • Capturing §179D Deductions
