Cost Segregation

Don’t pay taxes 39 years in advance

That’s what you’re doing if you don’t take

advantage of Cost Segregation. Used by property owners and supported by the IRS, Cost Segregation helps reduce taxes and increase cash flow by reclassifying assets to accelerate depreciation from 39 years to 5, 7 and 15 years. You can even capture “missed” depreciation from prior years.


When to use Cost Segregation

Cost Segregation can help lower building costs up to 10% for:

  • New buildings/facilities under construction
  • Existing buildings/facilities undergoing renovation, expansion or reconstruction
  • Existing buildings purchased after 1986
  • “Fit-outs” or leasehold improvements
  • “Catch-up” depreciation (up to 10 years)


Lower building costs up to 10%

Reclassify ‘lump

sum” construction cost into real and personal property and see the benefits:

  • 17-20¢ per dollar..... Personal Property reclassified from 39 to 5/7 years
  • 7.5¢ per dollar........ Site Improvements reclassified from 39 to 15 years
  • 23¢ per dollar........ Total Net Cash Flow Savings


Maximize the benefits

We maximize Cost Segregation benefits through an engineering-based study that correctly indentifies and classifies personal property. Our architectural and construction engineers review construction documents, drawings and costs to maximize your benefits and prepare the documentation required by the IRS. We partner with CPA’s to perform 300 studies a year.


No cost — no obligation feasibility analysis

Let us show you the benefits of cost segregation for your building. If you like what you see, we can do a formal study. Cost Segregation benefits tend to exceed study cost by 5 to 20 times.
