Engineered Based Solutions

Do you want to maximize tax deferrals, increase cash flow or create an audit trail? An engineered based approach called a Cost Segregation Study can do just that. For many years, we have helped our clients re-evaluate appropriate tax lives associated with construction projects. The goal of a cost segregation study is to maximize depreciation by determining if certain costs typically classified as 39-year property can be attached to assets with a shorter depreciation life (5-year, 7-year, or 15-year).
