April is widely known as “tax month”, when individuals and corporations scramble to submit their taxes on time. But tax related activities do not have to be last minute or daunting. Many healthcare providers use tax leases to expense the entire rental payment instead of taking depreciation.
A tax lease can be used for almost any purchase or investment, such as medical equipment, HVAC systems, lighting, office renovations and expansions. Michael Gsellmeier, Vice President at First American, explains that “Many of the healthcare groups we work with use our tax lease to minimize their federal income tax liability, which helps to maximize shareholder distributions.” Michael's clients have used tax leases for C-Arms, robotic surgery systems, operating tables, and surgery room renovations.
