Cost Segregation Services, Inc (CSSI) performs an engineering-based Cost Segregation Study on your property. The study accelerates the depreciation of your building/renovation components into shorter depreciation categories such as 5-, 7- and 15-year rather than conventional 27.5- and 39.5- year schedules. This study results in a much higher depreciation expense and significantly reduced taxable income for the property owner. Cost segregation can be applied to categories of buildings purchased or built since 1986 including renovations without the need to amend your tax returns. The 2014 Tangible Property Regulations, a.k.a "repair regulations" bring about complicated compliance issues but also significant economic benefits. Our goal is to support your CPA or tax advisor with the most accurate engineering-based affordable cost segregation study results so you can realize maximum savings, increased cash flow and compliance with the repair regulations.
