CSSI: CARES Act, Bonus Depreciation & NOL Carryback for RE Owners (FREE)


We are happy to offer this complimentary program to our members. Nonmembers will be charged a fee to register.

Join us for this free one-hour CPE webinar from COCPA Silver Partner, Cost Segregation Services Inc. (CSSI). This session will cover how the CARES Act removes limitations on the Net Operating Loss (NOL) rules, fixes the QIP error, and expands Section 179. 

Additionally, this session will cover how you can create an abundance of deductions for your clients. It will include much needed strategies for large and small real estate portfolio owners and their 2020 filings. Even if you have filed their taxes already, you will learn how to easily take advantage of these benefits before the end of 2021.  

Learning Objectives
  1. Carrybacks, changes to the definition of Qualified Improvement Property (QIP), and changes to the Section 461 loss limitations.
  2. To explain what Qualified Improvement Property is, how it qualifies for 100% Bonus Deprecation, and how to capture the benefits to projects put in service in 2018, 2019, and 2020.
  3. To identify which clients and what types of properties could benefit from a Cost Segregation Study
  4. Using Bonus Depreciation, Partial Asset Disposition, Section 179 Expensing, and Cost Segregation to potentially create a NOL and a refund or substantially reduce taxable income and reduce tax payments for 2020.
  5. To define filing details to capture these benefits for clients.
