Engineering Cost Segregation Studies

Additional Information

 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. 

We do an initial consultation and develop a feasibility report to determine the cash flow and net present value (NPV) benefit potential.  Our professionals evaluate your current tax status and your future business plans along with your CPA to determine if a full study would benefit your company.

The result is an instant tax benefit to the client to offset any taxes they owe; or in some cases, provide much needed cash flow to the business.

 Although, cost segregation affects meaningful federal income tax reduction, it is not a tax shelter; it is guided by detailed IRS regulations.

How much cash are we talking about? On average, about $150,000 in additional depreciation per $1 million dollars in purchase or construction cost over the normal 39 year SL method.

The studies are not limited to new buildings or new renovations.  Over 75% of our projects are on older properties using the “catch up” method which can produce significant results. Although some building owners and CPAs have heard of Cost Segregation, this program is actually an engineering study. 

It is estimated that 90% of real estate investors are overpaying federal income taxes due to understated depreciation?
