Webinar: Cost Segregation 101
Tuesday, July 10th, 12-1pm | 1 CPE Credit
Cost Segregation is a tool that has been used for years to assist in the acceleration of depreciation for commercial real estate. The now permanent Tangible Property Regulations have added new functionality to cost segregation studies. This course will present an overview of cost segregation and the depreciation of real estate assets. The course will also highlight situations in which cost segregation may be beneficial to real estate owners and will discuss what type of study scope is required in each scenario. The program will also touch on how cost segregation can be a useful tool when complying with the Tangible Property Regulations. In light of the recent passage of the PATH Act, the course will also briefly review how Bonus Depreciation and Qualified Improvement Property benefit from the use of cost segregation. Multiple case studies will be reviewed to demonstrate the utility of cost segregation. This discussion is designed for tax, accounting, and other professionals serving the real estate markets who are looking for a better understanding of cost segregation.
Webinar: The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2018
Wednesday, July 18th, 12-1pm | 1 CPE Credit
The Greek philosopher Heraclitus once remarked, “There is nothing permanent except change,” and our industry is no exception. In the last few months the world of commercial real estate has been rocked by the passing of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), the first comprehensive tax reform in over 30 years. In some areas the TCJA builds on the PATH Act, and in some areas it undoes it completely. Some provisions are likely to enhance the utility of cost segregation, and some may completely expand its scope. Some provisions will require new types of decision making, and all will require careful assessment according to facts and circumstances. Change has arrived, and we need to be ready for it.
