Maximizing Available Tax Deductions Through Cost Segregation

Have you purchased or constructed your building since 1987 or made substantial improvements to it? If so, you may realize a significant cash flow impact through accelerated depreciation deductions from having a Cost Segregation Study performed.  A Cost Segregation Study provides the opportunity to move items of building cost from longer to shorter depreciation lives, thereby accelerating depreciation deductions and improving cash flow through tax deferrals. The benefits can be significant!


What Qualifies?

  • New buildings presently under construction
  • Renovations, remodeling, restoration or expansion of existing buildings
  • Purchases of existing buildings
  • Leasehold improvements and "fit-outs"
  • Post 1986 construction, building acquisition or improvements


How It Works

A CSS allows building owners to allocate building costs between real estate and personal property based on case law and IRS guidance using qualified construction engineers to perform the study. The result is to accelerate depreciation in the early years of the projects life, producing deferred taxes and increasing cash flow during that period. Costs are legitimately moved from longer real estate lives (39 years for commercial and 27.5 years for residential rental property) to shorter class lives of 5, 7, and 15 years respectively. Savings are measured on the net present value of the deferred taxes over the life of the project.


How You Can Take Advantage

How can you take advantage of this win-win situation? By having a Cost Segregation Study performed, the IRS gets the documentation they require and you get the significant net present value savings you are due.
