Cost Segregation Studies

If you have constructed, bought, expanded or remodeled real estate, we can help you increase your cash flow by reducing your current taxable income. A cost segregation study is a strategic analysis that allows companies to accelerate their depreciation-related tax deductions. Generally, real estate loses its value over either 27 or 39 years; however, equipment and land improvements are depreciated over 5 to 15 years, meaning you can receive tax deductions sooner. A cost segregation study identifies equipment and equipment-related costs and land improvements that are depreciated over this shorter time period. You can enjoy tax deductions right now that you would otherwise have to wait years to receive.

In addition to new construction, cost segregation studies can be performed on existing facilities. The IRS allows taxpayers to catch up any depreciation deductions reclassified to a shorter depreciation life.
