Cost Segregation Study Tax Strategies

Cost segregation puts money in your pocket!

Cost segregation is an innovative tax strategy that can save taxes and increase your cash flow. If you have constructed, purchased, remodeled or expanded any kind of real estate property since 1986, cost segregation will help you accelerate depreciation deductions and defer federal and state income taxes.

Accelerate Tax Deductions

SVA applies procedures standard per industry to identify shorter-lived assets qualifying for five, seven or 15 year write-off periods, rather than the usual 39 years for building and acquisition costs.

The result is faster depreciation deductions for our clients and the tax savings in their pockets today rather than down the road.

Why wait 27 ½ or 39 years to benefit from the income tax deductions you can take sooner.

Improve Cash Flow

A cost segregation study can result in instant cash flow improvement via “net present value of tax savings.” Net present value of tax savings occur because tax deductions today are worth more than deductions in the future. These immediate deductions also result in lowering current year estimated taxes.

Could You Be Sitting on a Goldmine?

If you have built, purchased, remodeled or expanded real estate property since 1986, you may qualify for a one-time catch up in depreciation! A few examples of buildings that qualify are:

  • Auto Dealerships
  • Retail Stores and Malls
  • Restaurants
  • Manufacturing Facilities
  • Medical Offices
  • Assisted Living Centers, Nursing Homes
