Uncover Hidden Tax Benefits
Improve Cash Flow for Commercial Property Owners
Cost segregation services provide commercial property owners a means to reduce tax liability. Virtually every taxpayer who owns, constructs, renovates or acquires a commercial real estate structure will ultimately find significant benefits from a cost segregation study.
What Is Cost Segregation?
Cost segregation is a strategic tax planning tool that allows companies and individuals that construct, purchase, expand, or remodel commercial real estate to improve cash flow. This increased cash flow occurs by accelerating depreciation deductions and deferring taxes.
How Does a Cost Segregation
Our cost segregation study evaluates all information, including available records and inspections relating to the property. We review any available cost details for the property and any additional documents regarding the property’s history.
The Benefits of a Cost Segregation Study
When we undertake a cost segregation study, we are focusing on ways to improve your bottom line. The goal of such a study is to identify all property-related costs that are depreciable over five, seven, and 15 years.
Our commercial real estate clients report these benefits:
- Immediate increase in cash flow.
- Reduction in current tax liability.
- Deferral of taxes.
- The ability to reclaim “missed” depreciation deductions from prior years (without having to amend tax returns).
How Our Cost Segregation Studies Deliver Value
Here’s an example of how a cost segregation strategy benefits commercial real estate owners.
A $2,000,000 office building will receive approximately $50,000 of depreciation a year using standard depreciation methods. When we perform a cost segregation study, that same building could obtain as much as $110,000 in additional depreciation the first year and over $652,000 in accelerated depreciation in total over the next five years.
A Valuable Tax Strategy for Commercial Real Estate Owners
To realize the maximum depreciation benefits, the IRS requires that you conduct engineering-based cost segregation studies that provide more precisely segregated property information. This study gives CPAs the data and detailed supporting documentation they need to meet the strict IRS regulations and requirements.
We Stand Behind Our Results
If the IRS challenges the depreciation you claimed, even several years after the study, our experts stand behind our conclusions. We’ll provide our services at no additional cost should any meeting with the IRS become necessary.
