Cost Segregation:

How Ed Allen CPA can help?

Commercial facilities are usually depreciated, or “written off”, over 39 years.  In total, 25-35% of the cost of every commercial facility has property that BY LAW should be depreciated over 5, 7 or 15 years, instead of 39 years.

The tax savings that result from identifying and segregating the 5, 7 or 15 year property from the 39 year property is substantial.

This property qualifies for other tax benefits as well such as accelerated methods of depreciation, the §179 expense deduction, bonus depreciation, and more…

Are YOU Eligible For Substantial Tax Savings?

Three questions help you determine if you qualify for substantial tax savings resulting from a Cost Seg Study:

  1. Do you own commercial property (or improvements) that were placed in service since January, 1987?

  2. Are you currently paying or have you recently paid income taxes?

  3. Would you like to PAY LESS taxes?

How Can Allen Consulting Really Help?

Accelerating depreciation expense is easily achieved by engaging Allen Consulting to identify and segregate the personal property and land improvements from the real property in an existing facility.  To achieve the substantial tax savings, Allen Consulting combines our construction and tax expertise with approved IRS segregation methodologies.  The result is substantial tax savings passed on to the taxpayer.

Has My CPA (or Tax Professional) Already Done This?

It is the unique combination of construction engineers, state and federal tax professionals and accounting experts that enables Allen Consulting to provide cost segregation studies and the substantial tax savings to taxpayers.  Allen Consulting’s specialized engineering expertise is required to meet the rigorous standards of the IRS, to thoroughly dissect construction cost data and to prepare estimates based on the construction blueprints and on-site visit.
