Engineering based cost segregation studies permit commercial real estate owners to reclassify real property for depreciation purposes and reclassify it as more rapidly depreciating personal property. This reclassification results in significant cash flow benefits in both present and future years through considerably shorter depreciable tax life and accelerated depreciation methods.
According to the U.S. Treasury Department, “Cost Segregation Studies are a lucrative tax strategy that should be considered in almost every real estate purchase.”
An average Cost Segregation Study offers approximately $150,000 in additional depreciation per $1 million dollars in purchase or construction cost over the normal 39 year straight line method.
Any commercial property owner who has done the following since 1987:
- Purchased a commercial building or facility
- Constructed a new commercial building
- Renovated, remodeled, restored or expanded an existing facility
- Paid for facility leasehold improvements
An initial consultation along with a feasibility report is conducted to determine the cash flow and net present value (NPV) benefits. The consultation allows our professionals to evaluate your current tax status and your future business plans along with your CPA to determine if a study would be of benefit.
