Asset Cost Segretation

Asset cost segregation is the service of analyzing new and old building construction costs to determine if some of the land costs can be moved into a depreciable category and to determine if some of the building costs can be moved into an equipment class with much shorter depreciation lives. The effect of the analysis is to generate a tax write-off where none previously existed and/or a faster write-off in other areas. Consequently new money is found in the form of lower taxes, or at the very least, new money in the form of the time value of invested earlier tax savings. The analysis can be rigorous, but the filings with the IRS are not burdensome; there is no need to amend a lot of old returns. When current value asset valuations are needed to complete the task, we can bring to the table appraisers with relevant experience and with whom we have established strategic alliances.
