Real Estate Development & Investment

Taxation of real estate is one of the most complex areas of the tax code. Depreciation rules change regularly and an improper set up of asset acquisitions can significantly delay or even lose depreciation deductions. The consequences of good or poor tax planning can make or break a project.

We have more than 70 years of experience in dealing with all aspects of real estate planning and taxation, from setting up a simple rental investment to handling a multi-phase, multi-entity, multi-year, and multi-million-dollar real estate development. DWC’s real estate specialists can help owners, developers, and investors manage risk, employ efficient tax strategies, and identify opportunities.
