What is Cost Segregation?

Cost Segregation Experts

Cost segregation is a conservative, IRS-defined approach for depreciating commercial properties thereby reducing your federal incomes taxes. Income taxes are a burden; don’t pay more than is required.

Cost segregation BOTH reduces and defers state and federal income taxes. It reduces income taxes by converting ordinary income to capital gains. It defers income taxes by increasing depreciation in the early years of ownership.

Here’s How OUR Process Works.

First we seek to understand the client’s needs and magnitude of tax pain and review properties available for cost segregation.

O’Connor & Associates works closely with you and/or your CPA or financial/tax manager to collect existing data and documents regarding the subject property.

An appraiser inspects the property to identify eligible items, then calculates their value and allocates each to its correct depreciation life, per IRS rules and Federal Tax Courts decisions.
