Specialty Tax Services
Today's businesses are just as complex as the global market in which they function. Business owners turn to professionals who provide solutions that are specialized in nature and specific to their unique needs.
Some of Decosimo's specialty services include:
Investment and Hedge Funds—there is no practice that tests the metal of our practitioners like investment and hedge fund taxation. Decosimo is honored to count among its tax clients over 100 of these funds. Our clients come to us from across the nation to use our specialty in this very difficult and challenging practice area. But just like our work in mergers and acquisitions, the preparation of the tax returns for these funds gives our professionals and our system the type of work we thrive on.
Mergers and Acquisitions—Decosimo has been involved in over $10 billion in mergers, acquisitions, and debt and equity placement over the past 30 years. Interesting examples clients have been involved in the following, to name a few:
In addition to those high-profile companies, we represent some of the most successful and active buyout funds in the South and Midwest. Mergers and acquisitions tax work combines the best of what Decosimo has to offer and gives our staff a show case for their talents.
Charitable Organizations—to be tax-exempt as an organization described in IRC Section 501(c)(3) of the Code, an organization must be organized and operated exclusively for one or more of the purposes set forth in IRC Section 501(c)(3) and none of the earnings of the organization may inure to any private shareholder or individual. The organizations described in IRC Section 501(c)(3) are commonly referred to under the general heading of 'charitable organizations.' Organizations described in IRC Section 501(c)(3) are eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions in accordance with IRC Section 170.
Private Foundations—in the field of philanthropy, the term foundation has no precise meaning. However, when creating a foundation, nearly everyone is seeking two things: tax exemptions and tax deductibility. The creators of foundations must become familiar with the Internal Revenue Code and state laws that govern the formation and regulate the activities of foundations. Charities are a large and diverse group of nonprofit institutions that play a key role in American society and help to form and strengthen communities. With the help of millions of volunteers and the generosity of countless donors, they provide many services and perform many functions that in other countries are largely the monopoly of government. Charities are the only nonprofit organizations defined by section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
Real Estate Development—whether it is multi-family housing partnerships, planned unit developments, or commercial real estate developments, our tax department has the experience to handle the most complicated of real estate developments. Our tax services are used by over 150 real estate partnerships.
Business Valuation—at the heart of much of our tax work is our experience in valuations. Born out of our work in mergers and acquisitions and complex estate planning and strategies, our appraisal services are second to none. With a staff of six professionals accredited in business valuation (ABVs), the valuation designation of the AICPA, we provide our clients with the highest level of business valuation service.
