When selling real estate, you need to know whether income from your property’s sale qualifies as a capital gain or whether it will be taxed at normal income tax rates. When buying an investment property, you may worry about whether you will be subject to the 3.8% net investment income tax. You may also be interested in reducing the overall cost of acquisition through a cost segregation study.

Buying and selling real estate requires specialized accounting and tax knowledge. Without proper planning, taxes can be significant.

Our real estate accountants and tax advisors can help you understand market trends, navigate complicated tax laws and work seamlessly with your attorneys and other advisors.

U.S. real estate continues to be a sought-after investment. In addition to tax advantages, it provides investors with cash flow, significant leverage and capital appreciation. However, it can also come with an array of complex tax and legal challenges. Navigating federal and state tax laws isn’t easy, but with proper planning and sound advice from an experienced real estate consulting firm, you can ensure you’re in compliance and enjoy peace of mind.
