Individuals and companies that build, purchase, remodel, or expand any kind of real estate can benefit financially from using cost segregation.

Baker Tilly’s skilled specialists conduct cost segregation studies to help our clients increase their cash flow as well as the amount they can deduct on state and federal returns.

Personal property often gets buried in the lump-sum costs of a building purchase or construction project and ends up classified as real property.  A cost segregation study can unearth those assets and recover their tax value. As part of the study, we look for other opportunities to capitalize on the tax benefits associated with construction, expansion, and renovation.

Our cost segregation team includes engineers, architects, appraisers, CPAs, and, when needed, IRS controversy specialists, who assist with IRS examinations and refinement of positions.

“Cost segregation studies can be prepared for properties under construction, recently completed, or acquired. Basically, nearly every type of real estate or leasehold improvement in which the property owner can use additional tax deductions.”
