As a commercial property owner, you're probably depreciating the building over 39 years. So every year, you get to deduct 1/39th of the property's value (excluding land) from your taxes.


That's a long time to wait to receive all the tax benefits. Fortunately, there may be a way to accelerate the deductions and reduce the current year's tax bill.

By conducting a "cost segregation study," you can dramatically speed up the depreciation process. That's because certain items that are part of the building may qualify for faster write-offs. Depending on the property, a cost segregation study takes a percentage of the cost out of 39-year depreciation and puts it into five, seven or 15-year depreciation recovery periods.

It's best to do a cost segregation study when a building is placed in service but there may be opportunities later on that are available to your company.
