Buffet Breakfast: 7:30 ~ Program: 8:00 - 9:00 AM
Cost Segregation is a highly beneficial and widely accepted tax planning strategy utilized by commercial property owners, tenants, CPAs and trusted advisors, to defer tax, accelerate depreciation deductions and improve cash flow.
This valuable strategy can be implemented for newly constructed, acquired or currently owned properties. With the IRS’s recently-released regulations pertaining to Repair and Capitalization, the proper establishment of a baseline of depreciable assets will become even more critical.
Make plans to join the Maine Real Estate & Development Association (MEREDA) on February 12 from 7:30 - 9:00 AM at Hollywood Casino Hotel in Bangor for an informative overview of how cost segregation and asset baseline studies can offer significant immediate and future tax benefits.
