Cost Segregation Studies

Analyzing depreciable buildings and property to maximize your tax depreciation deductions for real estate is our specialty.

Are all of your project costs depreciated over the standard 39-year term? Our professionals will help you reclassify those costs to lower your tax bill with a Cost Segregation Study (CSS), or we’ll work with your outside CPA to get the job done.

The result: more tax deductions now which means less taxes now. We can even get you a refund with this year’s tax returns for “catch-up” depreciation on older properties.

An owner or developer can write-off certain assets installed in buildings over only 5, 7, or 15 years instead of the standard 39 years (commercial property) or 27.5 years (residential property). How? With a properly prepared cost segregation study, the result is significant tax savings!

Rapid depreciation may be applied to:
- A potential 25% to 45% of cost of commercial facilities
- Approximately 10% to 25% of the cost of warehouse, apartment, and office projects

Consider a recent cost segregation study for a 55,000 square foot facility that included manufacturing space, truck docking and truck parking areas. Roughly 39% or $1.0 million was reclassified for rapid depreciation, creating a net present value tax savings of approximately $160,000. The net cash savings from lower taxes is over $200,000 during the first six years. The first year savings was more than $30,000!
