Whether you are constructing, purchasing or expanding a building or relocating, Keiter can show you how your new property can significantly increase your cash flow by accelerating tax deductions. This process can also apply to property currently owned.
How Does a Cost Segregation Study Decrease Your Taxes?
A cost segregation study carefully breaks down construction and/or acquisition costs and allocates them to specific asset categories, maximizing depreciation for qualifying costs. Our study allocates such costs to personal property asset classes with lives shorter than real property asset classes. The shorter the depreciable life, the greater your tax deductions and cash flow.
A Keiter cost segregation study is based on an engineering approach combined with work paper documentation that provides the detail and support acceptable to the IRS and Tax Court.
