Our Differentiator

Most cost segregation firms only do cost segregation. Not only do we specialize in other areas of the tax code, but we work with you to make sure we pull the right levers to make sure we are applying these incentives in the best way for you. Every property and tax situation is different and there is no cookie-cutter application of these incentives. Contact me today to learn more about all the money you may be leaving on the table.

Considering signing up with a cost segregation firm?

Make sure they can answer these questions first.


1. Does the staff performing my study understand the Tangible Property Regulations? If yes, what classes have they taken on the TPRs?

2. Does your firm “scrub” and correct schedules to eliminate expenditures that never should have been capitalized under the Tangible Property Regulations (US Code §263a)?

3. If I perform a major renovation and improvement, will you perform a Partial Asset Disposition?

4. Can you help me in the future with capitalization/expense decisions?

5. Do you understand the three Safe Harbors under §263a?

6. Do you know the impact of the Real Estate Professional status? Can you explain the personal service time requirements of 750 hours and 50% personal service time?

7. How can recapture be minimized?

8. Does your firm provide, complete and sign IRS Form 3115 (Application for Change in Accounting Method)?
