Absolute Trust Counsel to Hold Free Virtual Trust Administration Event for California CFPs and CPAs

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- Leading Bay Area estate planning firm Absolute Trust Counsel will host a free virtual event, The Absolute Trust Academy Trust Administration 101, on October 28, 2022, to equip CPAs and CFPs with a stronger knowledge of trust administration processes. The webinar is aimed at enhancing advisors' client services and relationships. In addition, this event allows CPAs and CFPs to earn four hours of continuing education credits.

"Trust administration is an important topic for financial professionals for several reasons," said event host and Absolute Trust Counsel founder, Kirsten Howe. "CFPs and CPAs are often the first professionals contacted upon a death. Why? Because clients trust and depend on their advisors regularly and they have the deepest, broadest knowledge of their clients' situations.

"In addition, the trust administration process requires a coordinated effort among the attorney, financial advisor, CPA, and the family. All advisors play an important role in the process. Boosting their knowledge base benefits both their clients and their business. And, having these tools in their arsenal will also help build a more robust plan and head off future problems."

The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. via Zoom and will feature several local experts who will teach the basics of what needs to be done when a client has died. Audience members will learn and implement proven planning strategies and tactics to address clients' unique needs while maximizing business potential.

"Clients really do rely on their CPAs and CFPs to get them through this very challenging time," Howe continued. "So, we are doing this webinar to help all CFPs and CPAs give even greater service to their clients."

Event topics and speakers include:

* Margaret Schopp, CPA, Schopp & Co. - "Tax Compliance: Form 706"
* Karen Fisher, Principal, Bishop Fiduciary Services, Ltd. - "Helping Clients with Best Practices"
* Jim O'Dea, Broker Associate, Redwood Mortgage - "Mortgage Loans to Irrevocable Trusts"
* Madison Gunn, Attorney, Absolute Trust Counsel - "The 7 Basic Steps of Trust Administration"
* Kirsten Howe, Esq., Managing Attorney, Absolute Trust Counsel - "The ABCs of Trust Planning"

KROST Acts as Exclusive Financial Advisor for American Range in Sale to Hatco

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- American Range, a privately held manufacturer of commercial and residential cooking appliances, was sold to Hatco, an employee-owned manufacturer of warming, cooking, sanitizing, and cooling equipment. KROST CPAs & Consultants acted as the exclusive financial advisor to American Range in its transaction to Hatco Corporation.

American Range was founded over 40 years ago by Shane Demirjian and has become a national brand known for engineering innovation, design quality, and excellent customer service in commercial and residential cooking appliances. The company has manufacturing locations in Pacoima, California, and Las Vegas, Nevada.

Hatco Corporation, a 100% employee-owned (ESOP) company has corporate offices in Milwaukee, and a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. The acquisition of American Range is part of Hatco's goal to broaden product offerings and expand opportunities to service customers in the food service industry.

American Range has been a client of KROST for five years. During this time, KROST provided Tax, Accounting, Consulting, R&D Tax Credit, Cost Segregation, and now Mergers & Acquisitions services. KROST's service model is designed to guide and support businesses throughout their lifecycle - from early-stage growth and development to succession and exit planning.

"When I was considering the potential sale of my business, I turned to KROST. They performed the full range of M&A services for me - from finding buyers, running a competitive bidding process, hosting management presentations, negotiating deal terms, running due diligence, and working with the legal team through the close of the transaction. They were a vital part of this transaction, and I relied on them enormously," said Shane Demirjian, Founder of American Range.

"We have been advising American Range, its owners, and its management team for over five years, so when they were considering a sale, they turned to us to run the full sell-side process for them. Because of our knowledge of their business and market, we were able to understand what was needed to get a comprehensive job done on a timely basis," said Paren Knadjian, M&A and Capital Markets Principal.

The M&A practice at KROST is led by industry veteran, Paren Knadjian, who recently became a Principal at the firm. The M&A team has been involved in over 300 transactions, consisting of outright sales of businesses, corporate divestitures, recapitalizations, acquisitions, and equity and debt financings worth over $2 billion in transaction value. The practice also offers transactional support services, including buy-side and sell-side quality of earnings reports, valuations, and due diligence services.

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. -- PitBullTax Software, the Nation's Leading Tax Resolution Software for CPAs, EAs and Tax Attorneys has revealed it has won a spot on the 2022 Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing private companies in America.

IRS Releases Updated Practice Unit for Auditing the 179D Energy Efficient Commercial Buildings Deduction

EGAN, Minn. -- The IRS Large Business and International (LB&I) Division released an updated Practice Unit for its agents to audit the 179D Energy Efficient Commercial Buildings Deduction (179D Deduction), ICS Tax, LLC announced today. It confirms that taxpayers can use the ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2007 rather than newer, more strict standards but also could be an indication that the IRS will have added scrutiny on 179D projects.

179D DEDUCTION BACKGROUND

The 179D Deduction was enacted to encourage taxpayers to make buildings more energy efficient. Installation of energy-efficient commercial building property (EECBP) occurs when constructing a new, or improving an existing, commercial or government-owned building.

179D allows a taxpayer who owns or leases a commercial building to deduct the cost or a portion of the cost to install EECBP. Additionally, if the EECBP is installed in a government-owned building, the deduction can be allocated to the person(s) primarily responsible for designing the EECBP ("the Designer" or "the Designers").

EECBP must be part of at least one of three systems:

1 -- Interior lighting systems;

2 -- Heating, cooling, ventilation, and hot-water systems; or

3 -- The building's envelope.

To claim the 179D Deduction, a taxpayer generally hires a third-party Professional Engineer to perform energy modeling using IRS-approved software to confirm that the building meets the 179D requirements. The engineer then prepares a Certificate of Compliance to support the 179D Deduction.

THE ASHRAE STANDARD

The Taxpayer Certainty and Disaster Relief Act of 2020 updated the energy efficiency standard for the 179D Deduction by providing that for EECBP placed in service after December 31, 2020. EECBP means property that is within the scope of "Reference Standard 90.1." Amended 179D(c)(2) provides that "Reference Standard 90.1" means "the most recent Standard 90.1 published by [ASHRAE] which has been affirmed by the Secretary [of the Treasury], after consultation with the Secretary of Energy, for purposes of this section not later than the date that is 2 years before the date that construction of such property begins."

The LB&I revised Practice Unit states "The Secretary of the Treasury has not yet affirmed a new version of Reference Standard 90.1 for use with the IRC 179D deduction.... The ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2007 is the most current affirmed version as of the publication date of this Practice Unit." This means that taxpayers looking to benefit from the 179D Deduction can still qualify under the older ASHRAE standard.

INCREASED 179D SCRUTINY

The IRS recently announced it is looking to hire more than 4,000 representatives. A notable division within the IRS is the Criminal Investigation division. It is the investigative and law enforcement arm of the IRS with expertise in tax fraud, investment fraud, corruption, and much more. Earlier this year, a national tax consulting firm heavily involved with the 179D Deduction was raided by the IRS Criminal Investigation division. While the reason for the raid is not yet publicly known, the raid, the revised Practice Unit and the additional hiring could indicate that the IRS will have higher scrutiny on the 179D Deduction.

About ICS Tax, LLC:

ICS Tax, LLC has the expertise to properly obtain 179D Deductions. We have Professional Engineers licensed in all states to perform energy modeling, building inspections, and preparing certificates of compliance. For designers of public buildings, we also have government relations experts to complete and obtain allocations from government agencies.
