Masonry & Concrete Industry Edition
The masonry industry in the United States encompasses a wide range of businesses that may be conveniently categorized in three stages: Concrete & Cement Production, Concrete Preparation and Placement, and Brick and Block Placement.

Can your tax returns slide through IRS computers and past IRS scrutiny? It's possible, but what happens if your return is flagged and you become a statistic? You simply MUST KNOW the correct way to approach the situation.

What the Internal Revenue Service tells its auditors about the Masonry and Concrete Industry -

"There are a number of issues, while not entirely unique to masonry, that seem to appear more than average in the Masonry and Concrete Industry and warrant an alert to examiners. In addition, there are several Code sections that have wide ramifications in the industry."

Chapter 4 of The Manual For the Masonry and Concrete Industry reveals these issues -

Deductions Claimed For Fines And Penalties -
Since the manufacture, handling, and application of masonry products is a dirty and dangerous activity, the industry is subject to various fines from federal, state and local authorities. There is a natural desire to deduct these fines. Generally, masonry businesses are subject to regulatory oversight by the EPA, OSHA, FTC and a host of state regulators. These rules and regulations create the potential for significant fines, which are normally NOT deductible for federal tax purposes.

Cost Recovery -
Construction companies, and especially, ready mix concrete companies sometimes have many units of depreciable equipment housed at different locations and moving on a daily basis. One company has about 500 mixer trucks registered and also leases mixers from owner drivers. Cost recovery deductions under IRC section 168, therefore can be substantial. Abandonment losses and the sale of business assets are other issues often identified during audits of masonry contractors.

Self Insurance -
Larger corporate filers that are self insured for employee medical insurance, worker's compensation, and/or casualty loss expenses usually accrue these expenses for financial accounting purposes. However, the Internal Revenue Code generally does NOT allow these deductions for tax purposes. Therefore this is an area that requires careful scrutiny and adjustments are often required.

The above issues and more...the exact Manual can be yours NOW.

Great American Tax Accountant's is proud to announce that a portion of your investment in our products will be sent directly to the Morale Welfare and Recreation Department of our Armed Forces.
Sacrifice is not limited to our men and women in uniform.  Children, spouses and families of military personnel are deprived of special times while their loved ones are deployed far from home.  Even when hostilities subside, they often remain separated – sometimes for years!
With all of the conflicts taking place around the world, the children, especially, are often focused on a theatre of battle where their mother or father is serving.  No one can take the place of the children’s parents, but everyone can make a difference in their lives.  The children and family members left behind need our support now more than ever.
The Morale Welfare Recreation (MWR) Department organizes a variety of activities and programs to address the needs of these individuals – providing quality support, recreation, and educational services to contribute to the retention, readiness, and mental, physical, and emotional well-being and enjoyment of the military community.
