Real Estate Cost Segregation; Depreciating Rental Properties

“Accelerating depreciation on your rental properties”

Depending on your type of real estate investment, the actual structure can be depreciated over 27 ½ or 39 years. Cost Segregation is the process of identifying the property’s related costs, where such costs may be depreciated over an accelerated period of 5, 7 and 15 years.

This process can save you thousands of dollars of potential tax liability on your taxable income. Many of the items that qualify for accelerated depreciation, simply won’t last for 27 ½ or 39 years, such as kitchen cabinets, carpeting, appliances, etc.
