How much does a cost segregation study cost?

The IRS specifies the cost of Cost Segregation should be based on the time required to perform the study; not a percentage of the projected or realized savings. The time involved in a study is drive by multiple factors. Here are just a few aspects of the project that will impact the time involved to perform the study: how big is the building; what is the business activity in the building; and how many tax years will be analyzed?

What is cost segregation in real estate?

Briefly, Cost Segregation is an IRS recognized tax benefit strategy whereby we identify specific components of a building or improvement project that can be treated as personal property or land improvements for Federal tax purposes rather than real property. The cost for the personal property depreciates over 5 or 7 years and land improvements depreciate over 15 years rather than the 39 years or 27.5 years depreciation for real property.
