Specialized Accounting Services for Architecture and Engineering Firms

Tax and Consulting Services Designed with You in Mind

From razor-point pens to rolls of trace paper, as an architect or engineer it’s essential that you have the right tools on hand when designing a structure. The same goes for your financial team. Most firms trust that their CPA is providing them with every incentive available to their business, however, many accounting firms are overlooking valuable tax credits.

Are you benefiting from any or all of the following tax credits and deductions?

  • Research and development (R&D) tax credits
  • Energy-efficient commercial building deductions (Section 179D)
  • Domestic production activities deduction (DPAD)

Did you know that recent changes to the alternative minimum tax (AMT) opened the door for architecture firms to fully utilize their R&D tax credits? At LCS&Z, L.L.P., we stay on top of the rules and regulations surrounding your industry to help you identify significant tax savings for your firm.
