What is a Cost Segregation Study and How Can It Help You?

A cost segregation study can maximize your tax return on real estate investments. You can generate more cash flow savings with a cost segregation study as well. As a property owner, your holdings represent a significant investment. With the help of a cost segregation study, you can maximize your property’s capital return by carving out assets that are shorter lived. That means these assets qualify for 5, 7, or 15-year write-off periods. They are normally embedded in the property’s acquisition or construction costs and depreciated over 39-years.

It is generally effective to reclassify your assets if your property is valued at $1 million or more. For example, every $1 million dollars that you reclassify, your approximate tax savings would be $230,000.

How Can A R&D Tax Credit Study Benefit You?

Many companies are not aware that the R&D tax credit is beneficial to them. However, you should note that if you are developing a new or improved product, engaging in engineering, architectural, etc. services, creating software, you may qualify for the R&D tax credit. The R&D tax credit was first enacted by Congress in 1981. Since then, businesses of all sizes can qualify for it. Engineered Tax Services R&D tax experts can help to analyze your company’s R&D operations to determine if you are eligible.
