Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions

Any type of income producing property acquired or placed in service after 1986 is potentially eligible for Cost Segregation. This includes office buildings, retail stores, manufacturing facilities, short term rentals, apartment buildings, self-storage facilities, etc. Sorry, you can’t cost seg your primary residence!

We are pleased to offer competitive fees for all our Cost Segregation studies. Fees for smaller properties start at $1,500. Discounts available for portfolios.

The best time to perform a Cost Segregation study is when the property is acquired or construction. Prior to filing your federal income tax return for the year.

No! You can still capture the benefit of Cost Segregation via a “look back” analysis. This process involves filaing a Form 3115 with your next tax return and allows you to “catch up” on any depreciation deductions you missed by not doing the Cost Segregation study the year you acquired or constructed the property.

We generally recommend that you hold the property for at least 3-5 years after completing a Cost Segregation study. For shorter hold periods, Cost Segregation may not make sense due to depreciation recapture. Like-kind exchanges can help mitigate this issue.
