M&E Cost Segregation for maximum tax benefit,
cash flow, maximum ROI and maximum support.

Cost Segregation

M&E Cost Segregation Services will accelerate the depreciation of your building by identifying items that should be properly classified as Tangible Personal Property or Land Improvements, rather than Real Property that is depreciated over 39 years (or 27.5 for Residential Rental).

  • By accelerating the depreciation over 5, 7, and 15 years, you can significantly decrease your current tax liabilities and increase your cash flow.

We go the extra mile for our clients by providing detail for both the short life AND long life building components. This provides two benefits. One, it allows for the reconciliation of all project costs, as required by the IRS. Two, it allows our clients the ability to track and retire short and long life building components that are removed or replaced.

  • Your tax benefits will begin in the first tax year and continue throughout the depreciable life of the identified assets.

Asset Retirement


On September 18, 2014 the IRS released an advance copy of Rev. Proc. 2014-54. One of the most significant changes is the deadline for making late partial asset dispositions.

It has been extended for one year.

Taxpayers now have through the 2014 tax year to recognize tax benefits from building components that were retired from service in prior tax years.

Building owners that are still carrying retired ghost assets on their books, should consider the benefits available to them by making the late disposition election in the 2014 tax year.

We can help to determine the extent of the benefits that you are entitled to. We will analyze your building, break out the costs of your ghost assets, and provide you with the necessary detail and supporting documentation to write-off your retired assets.
