First-Class Cost Segregation Studies
Cost segregation services are one of the most effective ways to free up liquidity and improve cash flow. By reclassifying some assets, you have the ability to accelerate the depreciation of real estate assets. When you leverage these accelerated depreciation deductions, you can defer tax liabilities and improve cash flow.
Who Can Benefit from Cost Segregation?
If you own a qualifying commercial/residential rental property and you are currently paying taxes, cost segregation is likely to provide significant economic benefit for you. Although every situation is unique, you could potentially increase your cash flow by as much as 20-40% of the property’s basis.
Most Commercial/Residential Rental Properties Qualify for Cost Segregation Depreciation
If your property was built, renovated, or purchased after 1986 and has a depreciable cash basis of $300,000 or above, it may qualify for cost segregation. Although new construction qualifies immediately for accelerated depreciation, older properties allow you to take larger deductions to compensate for the time lag. In some cases, leasehold improvements may also qualify.
To leverage cost segregation for tax purposes, the subject property must be located within the United States. Finally, the property must be held in the name of an individual, a limited liability company, a partnership, or the property’s managing/operating entity.

Experience. Since 2006, Cost Segregation Authority has performed thousands of studies across the country and we’ve seen everything.

Our Difference. As highlighted throughout this website, NOT ALL STUDIES ARE CREATED EQUAL. And, we can prove it!

Don’t be this person.
