What is a Capstan?

Hundreds of years ago, a capstan was a crucial tool aboard wooden ships. Typically located at the center of the main deck, the capstan was a rotating machine that provided the force necessary to maneuver the heavy ropes that lifted sails and dropped anchors. To operate the capstan, sailors had to work together as a team—each making a timely and effective contribution.

Today, Capstan Tax Strategies is a professional services firm that helps CPAs and their commercial real estate clients to navigate Tangible Property and Fixed Asset Regulations. With our collaborative and consultative approach, we assist your team with the “heavy lifting” of detailed, engineering-driven solutions required to maximize tax efficiencies.


Services for CPAs

In the face of growing tax code complexity, it’s almost impossible to cover every area with in-house resources. For expertise in understanding and applying the myriad of complexities with the Tangible Property regulations and other IRS Code impacting commercial real estate, turn to Capstan Tax Strategies.

Services for Business Owners

Accelerating depreciation has long been a strategy employed by real estate owners to take advantage of immediate tax savings. The Tangible Property Regulations and the recent Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has created significant opportunities that elevate the many uses of Cost Segregation Studies. Learn how Capstan can help.
