Cost Segregation

Individuals and companies that build, purchase, remodel or expand any kind of real estate can benefit financially from using cost segregation.

Proper cost segregation requires what our team has expertise in: accounting, appraisal, tax law, valuation, engineering, architecture, real estate, and construction cost estimating. Benefit from our established track record of completing several hundred studies annually and successfully defending our reports before taxing authorities.

    Individuals and companies that build, purchase, remodel or expand any kind of real estate can benefit financially from using cost segregation.

    Because personal property can get buried in the lump-sum costs of a building purchase or construction project and end up classified as real property, a cost segregation study can unearth those assets and recover their tax value. Further, it increases cash flow by deferring taxes and typically creates tax savings of 2 to 5 percent of the total basis of the property. And while the primary benefit is present value tax savings, permanent tax reductions often occur as well.

    As part of the study, our cost segregation specialists look for other opportunities to capitalize on the tax benefits associated with construction, expansion and renovation.
