Ask an Expert: More about Cost Segregation Studies

Three frequently asked questions about cost segregation answered by an ETS expert:

When should a cost segregation study be preformed?

A cost segregation study is best done when a property is purchased, constructed, or remodeled after December 31, 1986 and if the owner will be paying property taxes for a few years.

How long does it take to complete a cost segregation study?

All properties and cases are different. However, a cost segregation study will typically take between 4 to 6 weeks to ensure an quality cost segregation study.

What is the cost of a cost segregation study?

The estimate of the cost segregation is typically done after the property in question has been surveyed. The more important question is to ensure that your cost segregation specialist is qualified to conduct an engineered study.
