Cost Segregation


A Cost Segregation Study is a tax savings tool for individuals and companies who have recently acquired, constructed, or renovated buildings. Cost segregation reduces current income tax liabilities and increases near-term cash flow by accelerating depreciation deductions for qualifying components of your real estate. These components are often previously classified as subject to 39-year depreciable life for a commercial building and 27.5-year for a residential building.


During the study, a cost segregation specialist will identify assets of your building that can be reclassified into a shorter depreciation recovery period. Along with freeing up significant cash flow and reducing income tax, there are many benefits to this:

  • Cost segregation can reduce real estate property taxes.
  • It provides an opportunity to claim ‘catch-up’ depreciation on previously misclassified assets.
  • It provides an independent third-party analysis that will withstand an IRS review.


“Cost Segregation is a lucrative tax strategy that should be used in almost every major purchase of commercial real estate” – The Wall Street Journal
