What Is Cost Segregation

Cost segregation is the process of identifying personal property assets and costs, and determining their classification for tax purposes. The purpose of cost segregation is reducing current tax liability. Often it’s also used to defer taxes. This process identifies personal property assets that can be groups with real estate or real property assets. It then separated out the personal assets for tax reporting purposes. Unfortunately, it can be quite costly, so it’s not always worth it.

If you invested in a large real estate purchase though, it could easily have its financial benefits. The cost segregation study and report will cost you anywhere from $10,000 and $25,000.

This cost segregation will determine exactly what kind of personal property assets can be reclassified and then shorten the depreciation time realistically for tax purposes. When depreciation is shortened in this way, it reduces current income tax obligation. This can in turn increase cash flow on your investment.
