The Source Advisors Solution

In 2019, the Source Advisors Cost Segregation engineers were engaged to do a full fixed asset review to identify opportunities to properly classify the costs of these transactions that spanned a 10-year period. Some of the properties required a full cost segregation study to properly allocate the capitalized costs using architectural plans with detailed cost files and invoices, while other required invoice reviews for proper classifications.

They conducted a thorough inspection of some properties where improvement projects were done. Key property personnel were also interviewed. A detailed report was delivered, identifying and documenting all the components that qualify for a shorter tax life.

Financial Results

Following this extensive examination, Source Advisors accomplished:

9% or

Reclassified into Qualified Leasehold Improvement Property.

3% or

Reclassified as 15-year land improvements.

20% or

Reclassified as 7 and 5-year tangible personal property.

It's noteworthy that the manufacturer opted out of bonus depreciation in most instances. Had they leveraged the full potential of bonus depreciation, the resulting benefits could have been even more substantial.
