Cost segregation is an engineering study through which you can usually get accelerated depreciation and lower your taxes.
Building owners can save money on the operating costs and taxes.
Different components of a building have different useful lives but most owners depreciate a building over 39 years (27.5 for apartments). However the IRS allows you to depreciate the components over their useful life.
Cost Segregation is an engineering study which breaks down the components of a building, and there are very many, according to their IRS useful lives resulting in accelerated depreciation which results in lower taxes, and when renovations are done the components demolished can be fully depreciated immediately. A simple form is submitted to the government with the study results and you get money back – no amended tax returns required. CSSI has done over 20,000 without a single challenge.
