Tangible Property Regulation Compliance

Proper compliance with tangible property regulations requires an understanding of how your business intersects with current IRS guidance

RSM’s tangible property resource team includes multidisciplinary professionals with broad experience in assisting companies to favorably comply with the tangible property regulations.

We can review applicable documents, conduct interviews with your facilities personnel, and perform site inspections where appropriate. This information is used to determine any adjustments for materials and supplies, de minimis asset purchases, unit of property cost basis (including building system components), improvements versus repairs, and dispositions. We can then compute the resulting applicable section 481(a) adjustments, review our final conclusions with you, help you prepare and file the required Form(s) 3115, and assist with tax return elections.

After completing the filing requirements, we can help you implement a comprehensive, Excel-based fixed asset upload that reflects the reclassifications generated by our analysis and assist with new asset accounting procedures to ensure continued compliance with these new regulations. We can also help keep you in compliance by performing periodic reviews of your latest fixed asset additions.
