WHAT IS COST SEGREGATION?

You want your money now.
Not over decades.

That’s why we help you keep more of it today.

Under current tax law, your building is set to depreciate over 27.5 or 39 years. But many assets - like lighting, carpeting and cabinetry - depreciate much faster than that.

Which means you shouldn’t have to wait all those years to get a tax deduction for them.

If you wait…
your money could be worth significantly less than it is today

That’s why we’re here.

We help real estate owners identify faster-depreciating assets and segregate them into their IRS - approved categories.

So you pay less tax and get better value for your money today.

On average, our clients
recognize $250,000 of increased tax depreciation expense

If you are the owner of a investment property that...

is worth at least
$1,000,000
or
underwent a renovation worth at least
$750,000

and you plan to hold this property for at least 3 years… THEN you may be immediately eligible for hundreds of thousands of dollars in first-year tax benefits.

Is my property type a good candidate?

"Their fees were well under some other bids"

“Madison SPECS recently completed cost segregation on two of my properties, and I am very pleased. Their fees were well under some other bids that I have received — and they performed exactly as promised.”

How we reduce this year’s tax burden

There’s nothing for you to do. We handle the process from start to finish.

1
No-Cost Feasibility Analysis
Is your property a good candidate for cost segregation? We review your acquisition or renovation project and generate a detailed estimated savings report.
If your property is a good fit, we’ll send a proposal. If we don’t believe there’s a real benefit, we’ll let you know that, too.
2
Property Tour
One of our in-house engineers conducts a comprehensive on-site tour of your property, as outlined by the IRS.
They’ll come in and identify assets that can be classified in 5 , 7, or 15 year depreciation classes — such as lighting, carpeting, or cabinetry.
3
Report
Based on our engineer’s findings, our asset classification specialists work with your CPA to compile a comprehensive cost segregation report.
This report highlights the shorter-life assets of your building, which affect depreciation value...and ultimately, your tax bill.
4
Tax Return
Here’s where you put more money in your pocket this year! We send the report to your CPA, who simply plugs it into the depreciation schedule of your income tax return.
This allows you to pay lower taxes at the end of the year. And we think that’s a pretty good reason to celebrate!

We don’t bypass your accountant—we work with them

Concerned about stepping on your accountant’s toes? Here’s why you don’t need to worry.

We are not looking to replace your accountant - we work with them. Cost segregation is a niche specialty, and most CPAs do not make it their focus. They don’t have the infrastructure needed; they don’t have engineers to make on-site property visits.

That’s why most accountants don’t do it at all — and many of those who do, outsource to a company like ours. We partner with your CPA. So when you work with us, you get a much lower tax bill — and your CPA comes out looking good.
