PASADENA, CA – KBKG congratulates Gian Pazzia, CCSP on his recent election as President of the American Society of Cost Segregation Professionals (ASCSP).

“I’m looking forward to the opportunity to further develop and promote the American Society of Cost Segregation Professionals (ASCSP). With representation from Big Four all the way down to boutique cost segregation firms, we comprise the most experienced group of cost segregation professionals in the country. CPAs that recommend cost segregation to their clients depend on ASCSP to identify accredited professionals.”Gian Pazzia, CCSP.

Gian has been on the Board of Directors of ASCSP since 2007. As chair of their Technical Issues Committee, he led the effort to write the first set of standards that all cost segregation reports must follow in order to be stamped by a Certified Member (MQS Report Requirements Appendix MQS 2011-1 Issued October 21, 2010). He also led ASCSP’s effort to issue commentary on several issues including comments to the IRS on the newly issued “Repair Regulations” (December of 2011), commentary on the AmeriSouth XXXII., vs. Commissioner case; and commentary on the Peco Foods vs. Commissioner case.

Gian is a Shareholder with KBKG, National Cost Segregation Practice Leader and also the firm’s subject matter expert for the Repair vs. Capitalization Regulations. He was one of the first in the country to become a “Certified Cost Segregation Professional” (CCSP) and has also provided expert witness testimony on Cost Segregation issues before the IRS. His election as President of ASCSP is a tremendous accomplishment for Gian and KBKG would like to congratulate him once again.

ASCSP was created to provide organizational oversight for an industry where there was none. For more information, visit
