To start, you may be asking yourself what cost segregation is. Cost segregation in the simplest terms is the acceleration of depreciation. Accelerated depreciation is good because it helps you pay a lesser tax to the IRS. It makes sense to do a cost segregation when you can make additional deductions. However, when you're a passive investor your deductions are limited.
When does it make sense to do a cost segregation? It makes sense If you are going to hold a property for five years or if you have a large property such as an office or industrial building with a purchase price of over $1 Million.
With a cost segregation, you are moving your deduction from year 27 to year 1. By moving your deduction from year 27 to year 1, your ROI can be 10-100x.
As soon as you have a property under contract, you should do a cost segregation. You should also consider a lookback study to get a look at the overall picture.
The cost of a cost segregation varies on property and information. A $1 million property can be as low as $3,000 to $4,000 to do a cost segregation.
