Real Estate

We can’t stress enough the importance of hiring the right CPA firm, especially in the real estate industry. At BMSS, we understand that the real estate industry can be fickle. Even the slightest of changes in the economy, stock market or in interest rates can have big effects on investors and developers. Our experience keeps us on top of the large number of real estate tax laws that impact such things as lease terms, financing, construction and capitalization and cost allocations. To remain profitable and positioned for growth, you need a trusted advisor who knows the industry inside and out and can assist in formulating a plan for future success. We look forward to providing you with exactly that.
