When you take on a construction, remodeling, or expansion project, you want to negotiate the best deal possible. But did you know that you probably have significant tax-saving opportunities hidden in your construction or purchase costs? KSM’s cost segregation specialists can help you identify opportunities you may have never considered.
Tax laws generally allow depreciation of certain kinds of property at a rate faster than that allowed for buildings. With a shorter depreciation period, current depreciation deductions are increased, thereby lowering your current tax liability and increasing your current tax savings. A cost segregation analysis identifies costs in your project that may be categorized as personal property or land improvements, rather than as building costs, such as landscaping, parking lots, furnishings, floor and wall coverings, and process-related costs.
At KSM, our cost segregation specialists thoroughly break down your construction, renovation, or acquisition costs and allocate them to specific categories, helping you maximize tax savings, improve cash flow, and increase return on investment. And, because our team includes tax and engineering professionals, we are able to take a 360-degree approach to any project.
If you’re in the process of constructing, renovating, or acquiring a building, you owe it to yourself to find out more. Contact us today to discover the savings opportunities KSM can help you engineer.
