Real Estate CPA Cost Segregation Solutions:

Your company’s real estate holdings constitute a huge capital investment. Cost segregation studies accelerate income tax deductions, providing you with maximum cash flow. With I&U CPA’s engineering-based cost segregation studies, you maximize your real property’s financial return by generating significant cash flow savings. Our cost segregation professionals generate cash savings by carving out shorter-lived assets (qualifying for 5, 7, or 15 year write-off periods) that are normally imbedded into a building’s construction or acquisition costs (generally depreciated over 27.5 or 39 years).

The IRS allows taxpayers to use a cost segregation study to adjust depreciation on properties placed in service as far back as January 1, 1987.

I&U CPA’s professionals works with specially trained engineers who have the skills and expertise required to produce high-quality studies that withstand IRS scrutiny. On average, a cost segregation study can allocate 10 – 30% of the depreciable cost basis of a property to a shorter recovery period.
