Generally speak- ing, a commercial building’s total cost basis is depreciated using a 39-year life under the straight-line method. A cost segregation study will identify, segregate and reclassify the various assets to shorter-lived assets (e.g. 5-, 7- and 15-year assets) from the total cost basis of the building being depreci- ated over 39 years. The shorter- lived assets are then potentially eligible for immediate Section 179 expensing or 100% bonus depreciation which generally results in significant tax deduc- tions for property owners. With the various deprecia- tion methods available, a real estate owner has many tools to use for year-end planning to reduce taxes and improve cash flow. Planning options and potential outcomes should be considered sooner rather than later so there is time to take ac- tion before the fast approaching year-end.
