Houston, TX, July 26, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- alliantgroup and Decosimo, a Top 100 accounting and business advisory firm, are co-hosting a complimentary webinar on Wednesday, August 22, 2012 covering powerful government tax incentives for the design, building, and construction industries.
During this 30-minute webinar, alliantgroup’s industry experts, including Dean Zerbe, former Senior Tax Counsel to the U.S. Senate Finance Committee, will offer valuable information on lucrative government tax incentives that lower tax liabilities and put money back into eligible businesses. Firms in the architecture, construction, and engineering industries (including mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) are performing activities every day that qualify for substantial federal and state incentives, yet billions of dollars go unclaimed each year.
There are significant tax savings for businesses in the AEC and MEP industries that are involved in the installation or renovation of energy-efficient government properties. Section 179D of the tax code provides big opportunities for firms to cash in on their work. With information on the 179D tax deduction, business owners and principals in these industries will be able to gain insights on easily obtainable tax breaks for energy-efficient commercial building. In just one example, alliantgroup helped an engineering client claim the 179D deduction on three government building projects, resulting in more than $230,000 in tax savings for one year. Decosimo is actively working with alliantgroup to assist their clients in obtaining valuable tax incentives.
Also presenting on the webinar will be Valerie Ward, alliantgroup National Director of Energy Incentives; and David Ji, alliantgroup Managing Director.
