A cost segregation study is a federal income tax tool that increases your near term cash flow, in the form of a deferral, by utilizing shorter recovery periods to accelerate the return on capital from your investment in property. Whether newly constructed, purchased or renovated, the components of your building may be properly classified through a cost segregation study into shorter recovery periods for computing depreciation. The study carves out (into 5, 7, and 15 year lives) certain qualifying portions of your building that are normally buried in 39 or 27.5 year categories. This course will show you how to evaluate the applicability of a Cost Segregation study.
