Case Studies

By utilizing the Domestic Production Activities Deduction (DPAD), our client qualified for a $162,000 deduction that was passed through to the shareholders and resulted in approximately $65,000 of permanent tax savings.

 

Construction and Equipment Leasing Company View Case Study

By changing their accounting method during a very profitable year, our client was able to defer recognition of $3.8 million in taxable income for that first year which resulted in approximately $1.5 million of taxes deferred. While that amount fluctuates each year based on the client’s contract mix, four years later, our client still has a significant deferral of income.

Construction Company Specializing in Building Infrastructure View Case Study

During an entity restructure, we utilized our relationship with a client’s bank to negotiate a $2 million personal line of credit allowing our client to meet the requirements for an unlimited Contractor’s License bid limit as well as secure performance bonds for its jobs.
