BOSTON - June 19, 2014 - PRLog -- Cherrytree Group hosted its second annual tax conference, “Energizing Brownfields:  Why You May Be Closer than You Think,” on May 16 at the Sheraton Boston Hotel.

The event featured a panel of guest speakers, including Kerry Bowie (Director of Brownfields and Environmental Justice, Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection), Daniel Seferian, Esq. (Counsel, Rulings and Regulation Bureau, Massachusetts Department of Revenue), and Richard Cote, P.E., LSP (Principal and Manager of Engineering, Comprehensive Environmental Inc.).

After a networking breakfast, Bowie offered an explanation of what constitutes a Brownfields site, the history of the Brownfields Program, and what assistance is available for Brownfields redevelopment.  Seferian then continued with more detail regarding legal aspects of the Brownfields program (specifically with regard to the Massachusetts Brownfields Tax Credit), and explained how the DOR interprets Brownfields in Massachusetts.  Cote drew on his experience as an LSP and used case studies from his work on Brownfields sites to put the program into perspective.

“We are so grateful to our panelists, who demonstrated their expertise in Brownfields knowledge and shared their information in a clear and relevant manner,” said Cherrytree Group President Warren Kirshenbaum.  “Brownfields is an important but easily misunderstood tax credit opportunity, and we’re glad to work with such great advocates who help to make people aware of their eligibility for these beneficial credits.”
