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

Retire Your Ghost Assets Today!
Have you previously removed or replaced any structural components of your building such as a roof, HVAC equipment, doors, windows, lighting, etc.? If you are still carrying the retired "Ghost" assets on your depreciation schedule, you could substantially benefit from an Asset Retirement Study.

On December 23, 2011 the IRS released the long-awaited Temporary Regulations for Guidance Regarding Deduction and Capitalization of Expenditures Related to Tangible Property (a.k.a. Repair Regs or Repair Regulations). The regulations provide a two year period, from January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2013, for taxpayers to write-off any structural building components that have previously been removed from service.

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.

179D Certification

IRC 179D Federal Tax Deductions
The amount of the 179D Federal Energy Tax Deduction can be up to $1.80 per square foot. Benefits are retro-active for projects placed in service from January 1, 2006 until December 31, 2013.

If your building meets or exceeds the 50% reduction compared to the ASHRAE standard for Building Envelope, HVAC/Water, Heat, and Lighting you can qualify for the full $1.80 per square foot. Partial deductions are allowed in the amount of $0.60 per square foot for each of the three divisions.

If you have a newly constructed building or have replaced HVAC or Lighting systems you will probably qualify.

Architects, Engineers, Energy Saving Companies, Contractors, and other Designers of energy efficient improvements to government owned buildings are eligible to claim the 179D Tax Deduction for the design of newly constructed and/or retrofitted buildings.
