Cost Segregation is a process where personal property assets are grouped with other assets for tax reporting purposes. The American Society of Cost Segregation Professionals says that cost segregation helps identify components that are considered “personal property” or “land improvements”.
The purpose of a cost segregation study is to shorten the depreciation times for tax purposes reducing income taxes. Detailed analysis of construction-related costs are scrutinized looking for items that can be depreciated over shorter periods of time. GLO can help look at your construction processes and costs and related properties. We can help assign depreciation values that will result in a reduction of your tax bill.
