CCA advises businesses and investors in assessing their obligation to file tax returns and pay taxes.
There are risks associated with paying too little, paying too much, or failing to properly comply with reporting requirements. We utilize a team-based approach focused on risk management, and work hand in hand with attorneys and other financial advisors to maximize results.
Along with more than 30 years’ experience with federal and state taxation, investments, and transition planning, our team holds advanced degrees in accounting, business administration, law, mechanical engineering, and taxation. The returns from your investment in our services include elimination of unwarranted tax liabilities, and avoiding costly scrutiny by taxing authorities.
Tax Return Preparation Services
Federal and state governments often require the results of careful research and planning to be displayed throughout tax filings. Our accredited professionals are dedicated to ensuring that each return is completed with a focus on quality and integrity. We provide outsourced tax departments that businesses can trust to meet filing obligations with preparedness. The tracking and coordinating of reporting responsibilities allows us to approach tax compliance engagements with accuracy and assurance.
Tax Strategy and Planning
Filing taxes at the federal and state levels are obligations of nearly every business and investment decision. From entity consideration to deferred compensation arrangements, we provide personalized, tax-efficient strategies for employers and employees alike. Our qualified team works to develop responsive solutions to strategic business and investment decisions that allow for seamless exit and transition strategies.
Wealth and Business Succession
Our business valuation experts at CCA determine the value of your business and investment interests for estate and gift tax purposes. Also acting as consultants, they help to establish values used in gifting and management succession plans. With economic consideration as a highest priority, we are able to provide transactional analysis in a responsible and timely manner.
Real Estate Tax Services
Cost segregation allows clients to depreciate a new or existing structure in the shortest amount of time permissible under current tax laws. Our cost segregation studies provide an immediate increase in cash flow by reducing the burden of current tax liabilities, while adhering to strict IRS regulations and requirements. We also provide REIT testing and compliance services to ensure that our clients meet annual income and asset requirements and maintain REIT qualification.
CCA Spotlight: Real Estate
One of our specialty areas is the commercial real estate industry. The CCA team has been actively involved in organizations at the national level including the National Realty Association, the Real Estate Tax Institute and the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts. CCA team members were among the handful of professionals involved in the adoption of the UPREIT structure in the early 1990s which led to the proliferation of publicly traded REITs. We have served clients in the real estate industry for more than 30 years.
Members of our professional team are knowledge leaders in market segments including development and management, as well as in property uses: Hospitality, Office, Retail, Multi-Family, and Residential. Our clients include commercial architecture firms, management companies, builders and contractors, and building owners.
Private Equity and Venture Capital Tax Services
From financial reporting to principal tax planning, our back-and middle-office operations transfer responsibility and allow fund managers to focus on core operations. Our services provide accurate and timely reporting which minimizes administrative costs and reduces the need to “chase information”.
Contact from a federal or state tax agency can be concerning and stressful for a taxpayer. CCA is committed to assisting its clients in preventing, managing, and settling controversies and conflicts. The firm acts efficiently to resolve outstanding disputes by coordinating the efforts of the client’s internal team and professional advisors at each step of the resolution process. We have established an excellent reputation within the IRS and various state authorities as resolute advocates for our clients in matters of tax controversy, both civil and criminal.
