What Is Cost Segregation?

Cost Segregation is an IRS-approved application by which Commercial and Residential Property Owners of new and/or existing properties can accelerate depreciation resulting in significant Tax Savings / Cash Flow. With the support of an IRS compliant Engineering Study, real property Owners reclassify and accelerate identifiable tangible building assets / components from their current 39 commercial or 27.5 residential depreciable life to an accelerated 5, 7 and 15 year depreciable life.

Why Cost Segregation?

Provides Tax Savings / Available Cash / Working Capital in the current tax year, available recovery from the past 2 tax years (or) applied to future tax years. Provides current Tax Savings / Cash Flow that can be used for Debt Reduction, Capital Improvements, Working Capital, Investments or whatever, without restrictions.
