See why cost segregation is a powerful tax tool for commercial property owners

Study Details – Hotel Purchase & Improvements: Engineered Tax Services performed a cost segregation engineering review of building components and site improvements on a 3-story 50,000 sq. ft. hotel in Florida. The cost segregation benefit included a reclassification of 39-year depreciation class life assets into 5 and 15 year class lives, resulting in a combined benefit of $1,188,388 on the purchase and $89,024.86 accelerated 5 year on the improvements.

Additionally, ETS’ next generation cost segregation study captured $105,354 in disposition of assets no longer in service on the purchase as well as identify $223,102.00 in qualified repairs on the improvements under the final tangible property repair regulations.

When combined, these additional “next generation” benefits clearly demonstrate why cost segregation has become a powerful tax tool for real estate clients as a result of the final tangible property regulations (T-Regs).

  • Accelerated depreciation
  • Energy tax deduction (179D) for heating and cooling systems
