Cost segregation, within our Real Estate Service practice, is the detailed analysis of buildings for federal income tax & financial reporting purposes. The objective of a cost segregation analysis is to identify special building electrical, plumbing & HVAC systems, as well as certain building finishes & fixtures, and site improvements that may be depreciated over shorter-lives than the remainder of the building for tax purposes. This study generates significant deductions for the building owner and greatly reduces income taxes. While the end result of the analysis is a tax benefit, this type of work requires a knowledge base of tax code, court cases & law as well as construction, engineering, or architecture.

Join our team and together we’ll power the sound decisions that enhance value – yours and ours.
