Frequently Asked Questions About Cost Segregation

What exactly is a Cost Segregation Study (CSS)?

It's a professionally performed analysis of your building and its subcomponents (different systems) that deteriorate over time. A specific lifespan is assigned to these different building components, such lifespans thus having a shorter depreciation schedule compared to the building as a whole (i.e. 27.5 or 39 years). This results in an acceleration of the overall depreciation, providing higher short-term deductions and tax savings in the immediate timeframe.

How much does a typical CSS cost?

Typically it takes $3,000-$15,000 to perform a cost segregation study, depending on the size and nature of the building - but it should be more than worth it due to the potential to save much more than that in taxes in the short-term.

When is the right time to perform a CSS?

The sooner it is done, the sooner the depreciation can be accelerated on the basis of the CSS analysis and conclusions. If rehab investment is planned on the building, it is strongly recommended to perform the CSS before the improvements are done.

Does a CSS increase the risk of an IRS audit?

Perhaps, although with a professionally performed CSS, you will possess the documentation needed to support your tax filings and claims for accelerated depreciation. It is important to use experienced engineers and accountants who are qualified experts with such studies. It is not advised to do it on your own without professional assistance.

How do I know if my building qualifies for a CSS?

If you (or your corporation, partnership, trust) own real estate purchased or built within the last 15 years, you can benefit from a CSS. Both residential and non-residential commercial properties are in scope for such a study.

How long does a CSS normally take?

It depends on the type and size of the property you own, as well as how quickly you can provided important paperwork and documentation to be reviewed. You can expect a CSS to normally take 30-60 days.

Is doing a CSS worth it?

While a Cost Segregation Study does take significant time and money, it is typically a smart financial move. It is common to save many times more in taxes due to accelerated depreciation than the cost of the study.

Cost Segregation work is complex and needs to be done correctly the entire way - and may have significant tax implications. It's important to work with an experienced CSS expert for this activity.
