A cost segregation study can identify and reclassify your property, with the benefit of shortening the property’s depreciation time. What happens when the property’s depreciation time is reduced, as you probably know, is that your current income tax obligations also reduce. Using this tool, the IRS allows to to speed up the depreciation on certain things such as carpet or cabinets, and even light fixtures and flooring in a building. That way, you can enjoy tax savings sooner!

So why doesn’t everyone do a cost segregation? Well, the cost of it is not cheap. So, only investors with significant property will benefit. It can be over $10,000. Also, the personal property to be depreciated must be attached to a real property. After all, the whole point is to segregate property that can be depreciated faster from from the real property. In all, an engineering report should separate the property into four categories: personal property, building components land improvements, and land.

Here’s more information on cost segregation straight from the IRS.
