Cost Segregation is the process of segregating the costs associated with the specific commercial real property investments in real estate. Commerical real property is depreciated over 39 years (or 27.5 years for commercial residential).
In order to qualify for Cost Segregation, properties must have been constructed, acquired, or renovated after 1986, under the IRS guidelines. The property can be a new building under construction; existing buildings undergoing remodeling, restoration or expansion; purchases of existing property constructed anytime, but placed in service after 1986; office/facility leasehold improvements on your current facility and “fit outs”.
What are the Benefits of Cost Segregation?
With the benefit of properly segregating costs, CPA’s, investors, engineers, appraisers, developers and consultants can accomplish several goals related to real estate properties:
1. A significantly improved after tax cash flows from the project due to accelerated tax depreciation.
2. Property that is identifiable for abandonment should situations change.
4. Opportunity to claim “catch-up” depreciation on future tax returns for corrections in tax depreciation.
