Benefits of a Cost Segregation Study
Cost segregation is a conservative, proven and IRS-defined approach for depreciating commercial properties. It is the most accurate depreciation methodology for assets acquired or constructed after 1986.
The increased depreciation realized through a quality cost segregation study has a real-time, positive impact on your bottom line.
Cost segregation study benefits include increased cash flow, improved ROI, reduced taxes and the ability to catch-up on past years.
