The Tangible Property Regulations Can Still Deliver Significant Value

Justin Gephart

McGuire Sponsel has performed hundreds of cost segregation studies to help bring taxpayers into compliance with the Tangible Property Regulations (TPRs). The implementation of the new law allowed taxpayers to capture partially disposed assets on a retroactive basis. Filing Form 3115 prior to the Sept. 15, 2015 deadline resulted in significant savings for our clients. Now that the lookback period has expired, we often hear that there is no longer a significant value provided by the TPRs. While it is true that there was a significant value to the lookback period in 2015, we wanted to take some time today to illustrate that there is still a great deal of benefit going forward as a result of the new law.

How the PATH Act Affects R&D Tax Credits this Tax Season

Kyle Riddle

Now that 9/15 has concluded, it’s time to start thinking about how the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act will affect R&D tax returns for 2016 and beyond.  Recently, the IRS released drafts of several forms related to the R&D Credit that provide additional insight regarding the payroll tax credit provision that was enacted by the PATH Act for tax years beginning after 12/31/15.  This provision allows eligible start-up companies with less than $5 million in gross receipts to claim up to $250,000 per year of the R&D Credit against the employer portion of the Old Age, Survivors and Disability Insurance (OASDI) part of FICA taxes.
