When To Use a Cost Segregation Study

What Qualifies for Cost Segregation Studies

Why Should I Do a Cost Segregation Study?

A Cost Segregation Study will do three important things:

  1. Create Immediate Tax Savings
  2. Increase Cash Flow – by accelerating depreciation deductions and deferring income tax payments.
  3. Catch – Up Prior Year Accelerated Depreciation – Cost segregation studies allow a client to “catch-up” previously under-reported depreciation without filing amended tax returns. All “catch-up” depreciation can be taken in the current year tax.

But, most importantly, it puts cash in your pocket now. Let us help you utilize the benefits of a cost segregation study that tens of thousands before you have benefited from.
