What-If-Scenarios of Cost Segregation

Consider These Common What-IF Scenarios When Evaluating The Different Cost Segregation Providers

What if you considered cost segregation studies in the past, but they were too expensive, with too little guidance for an accepted study? Times have changed. You can now consider a study with confidence. The fees have gone down for superior savings, the IRS has published effective rules and a one-year catch up is permitted. Now is the perfect time to review your opportunities.

What if you already work with a different cost segregation company? The difference is that the quality, data and procedures followed and detailed in our report yield more mileage. We are one of the only legitimate licensed engineering firms in the industry that has professionally licensed engineers on staff who have mechanical and structural expertise. Our firm can break down 39 and 27.5 year property in detail. This allows you to better manage all assets from a tax perspective in terms of leases, abandonment and sale.

What if you’re concerned about the tax consequences of a study? We take the marriage of accounting and engineering very seriously and have built our firm on that foundation. In addition to our licensed engineers, we have a tax expert on staff who worked with the IRS for 32 years and performed tax controversy work for Deloitte for several years.

What if your other cost segregation firm is cheaper? Our fees are very competitive. However, be wary of firms that do not charge market price for a highly specialized service. Firms without tax experts to consult and collaborate on engineering studies raise red flags with the IRS because it reflects a lack of expertise in cost estimation.

What if the reports are not accepted by the IRS? We provide a guarantee on our reports. Additionally, due to our diligence, expertise and licensing, we are able to insure our reports with Lloyds of London for up to $3,000,000 per report. We also get more mileage out of each report in terms of energy and insurance benefits. The key to our reports is to yield as much benefit as possible for you in the areas of tax, energy and insurance while having the product exceed IRS guidelines and produce the highest reclassification.
