Any type of income-producing property placed into service after 1986 qualifies for cost segregation. We frequently work on residential such as short-term rentals as well as commercial projects.
Fees vary based on square footage, property type and complexity. We pride ourselves on having affordable cost segregation studies for smaller properties starting at $1,500.
The best time to perform a cost segregation study is within the tax year that the building is purchased or construction is completed. If you are planning on renovating your property we recommend performing a cost seg prior to those renovations.
You can have a look-back study done on assets acquired as far back as 1987 and claim the resulting write-offs using the 3115 Automatic Change without amending prior-year tax returns.
There are diminishing returns to performing a study the longer you own and depreciate a property. Contact us to determine if your property is a fit for a cost segregation study.
If you are planning to sell the property in a taxable transaction a cost segregation study may not make sense because of recapture.
We generally recommend you hold a property for at least 3-5 years. However, if you are planning to enter into a like-kind exchange (non-taxable transfer of your property for another property) you will not have depreciation recapture issues until you sell the replacement property.
