What is cost segregation?

When it comes to real estate, not all property components depreciate equally. On average, 20% to 40% of a building’s components can be depreciated far sooner than the building itself.

Aprio’s cost segregation studies identify and classify nonstructural property costs into their appropriate “MACRS lives” for depreciation over 5, 7 and 15 years, rather than structural elements that must be depreciated over 27.5 or 39 years. And that can translate into significant tax savings.

Aprio cost segregation benefits

By accelerating depreciation, Aprio cost segregation studies can provide real estate owners with valuable tax savings that contribute to profitable growth.
