Are you concerned about the lengthy depreciation period for your buildings? Did you know that cost segregation studies can identify significant tax saving for you by allowing assets to be depreciated more quickly – whether you are constructing a building or purchasing an existing building?
By reclassifying certain costs from real property to personal property categories, cost segregation allows parts of the property to be depreciated over a shorter term.
The key to cost segregation is that it must be conducted by practitioners with tax, engineering, and construction experience. The LaPorte Tax Services Group – partnering with well established firms with significant engineering and architectural cost segregation experience – can help you to identify available deductions.

Cost Segregation Case Study
Recently, LaPorte performed a cost segregation study on a newly constructed warehouse building and office. The construction cost of the building was $1,200,000. Our team was able to identify over $300,000 worth of assets that could be segregated, resulting in savings to the taxpayer of over $50,000 in income taxes.
