How KBKG Helps You?
The KBKG team includes engineers and tax professionals with extensive backgrounds. Collectively, they have conducted thousands of projects worth over a billion dollars in tax credits and incentives to clients. Our team has worked with some of the most recognizable names in the world, including Costco and Rolex. Teamwork is at the foundation of all the services KBKG offers, and the professionals who work alongside your staff are supportive partners.
With its breadth of experience, KBKG helps determine if businesses qualify for certain tax credits and incentives, including the Research & Development Tax Credit (R&D Tax Credit), Employee Retention Credit (ERC), Cost Segregation, Green Building Tax Incentives (GBTI) such as 179D Deduction and 45L Credit, and Transfer Pricing.
- The Research and Development Tax Credit (R&D Tax Credit) can save roughly 10% of a company’s qualified Research & Experimentation (R&E) expenses for designing, developing, or improving business components or processes.
- The Employee Retention Credit (ERC), part of the CARES Act, provides a credit for employers who retained or continued to pay employees during the pandemic. Businesses can claim both the ERC and the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP loan), provided they meet the requirements for both programs. However, the same wages cannot be used for both programs, and this means that wages paid with PPP funds cannot be used to calculate the ERC.
- Cost Segregation is a tax strategy that allows a business to increase cash flow by increasing the speed of depreciation deductions and deferring income taxes. KBKG performs thorough and professional cost segregation studies to help clients determine if cost segregation suits their business.
- The 179D Deduction for energy-efficient buildings is a federal deduction worth up to $5 per square foot for qualifying commercial and tax-exempt buildings that meet certain energy-efficiency standards.
- The 45L Credits for Energy-Efficient Residential Developments is valuable for companies building multifamily housing, apartments, and residential developments. If a project meets the criteria set by the IRS, a company may be eligible for a tax credit up to $5,000 per unit.
- Transfer Pricing allows a multi-national company to minimize its taxable liability across all its subsidiaries by determining the price at which its subsidiaries pay for a company resource, such as goods or personnel.
These are just some of the tax incentives that KBKG can help you explore, which could save businesses significant dollars. An added benefit of working with KBKG is the Advantage Audit Guarantee, which supports clients should the IRS audit you.
