Increasing CRE Value with Cost Segregation

Course Formats:


Cost segregation is an Internal Revenue Service-compliant method to decrease your property's income tax liability, increase your property's cash flow, and significantly enhance property's after-tax internal rate of return (IRR). This two-hour online, instructor-led course, uses a real-world case study to illustrate the step-by-step process for adding value to your commercial real estate, including buildings, renovations, and leasehold improvements. You'll learn how to identify a real property's personal components and its land improvements as defined under the federal tax code, how it accelerates depreciation expense deductions and allows you to take them earlier in the holding period, and the benefits of cost segregation over the straight-line cost recovery method. Highlights include:

  • How a cost segregation study will substantially reduce income tax liability in the early years of property ownership.
  • How bonus depreciation can be used to eliminate a property's income tax liability in the first year of ownership.
  • How net operating losses can be carried back to capture income taxes paid in prior years.
  • How a cost segregation study increases a property's cash flow and increases its IRR.
