We work "with" your CPA (if you desire) so there is no conflict or competition, just your best
interest in providing YOU the maximum possible benefits.
 
WHAT IS COST SEGREGATION
It is an IRS defined and sanctioned approach that requires skills and expertise in Construction Engineering and Taxes. 
 The process allows Commercial Property owners to REDUCE FEDERAL TAXES by accelerating the depreciation on their
properties by separating real (essential) and personal (non-essential) components of building cost and reclassifying the
depreciation on the personal items from 39 years to 5, 7, and 15 years.
 
 
Accelerated depreciation
   
Reduced Taxable Income
     
Increased Operating Cash Flow (immediately)  
 
Providing benefits that are potentially TENS or even HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS. With current IRS rules, the
owners can take advantage of these benefits immediately by filing a single form (Form 3115), which does NOT require
restatement or amending tax returns.
 
HOW TO QUALIFY
 
   
  If the answer is YES to the above questions, then a FREE assessment of the owners property will be performed
where we outline, in advance, the benefits to be expected…along with a Return-on-Investment
(ROI) that should truly "impress."
 
If the numbers do not make sense, or we cannot work them to meet the clients expectations,
then we walk away.  NO HARM.  NO FOUL.
 
 
OUR EXPERTISE
Our team of experts are considered an industry leader in the usage of IRS guidelines and rulings. More importantly, we perform
the preferred Engineering-based (bottom-up / full coverage) approach to Cost Segregation.  That means that we start at the
bottom and classify ALL property components into the appropriate depreciation classes – 5, 7, 15, and even the 39 year components.
 
This level of detail ensures that we Meet or Exceed the Thirteen Elements of a Quality Study as defined by the IRS, which
makes our work more defensible.
 
Lesser approaches such as Residual-based methodology are top-down in nature and include lesser details, which may leave both
 money on the table and the client in a in a “less” defensible position with IRS.
