HBL CPAs is one of the few firms in Tucson that offers cost segregation services. Cost segregation is the process of segregating a building’s individual components and depreciating each component over its separate, depreciable life, instead of taking the building as a whole and depreciating it over the traditional 27.5 or 39-year lives. This results in many components being assigned to shorter class lives, and subsequently, more up-front depreciation is allowable. As part of the tax savings process, clients who are in the real estate, construction, and various other industries find cost segregation a significant way to take advantage of depreciation up front.
Our professional staff has the knowledge and expertise to evaluate and provide a cost segregation study that will result in the most optimal tax savings for you. If it is determined that you may benefit from a cost segregation study, including buildings with specialized machinery or very unique circumstances, we contract with the nation’s premier Cost Segregation firm, a specialized engineering firm which prepares and supports the study. This partnership allows for a specialized, highly-technical study which results in the most optimal tax savings for you and your business.
