Get more cash today so you can invest and make even more money tomorrow.
As a savvy investor, you know the value of cash. So what if your existing investment properties could get you cash, interest-free, from the government in order to invest in other opportunities and grow your net worth?
What kind of return could you get if you had, say 100,000 dollars to invest tomorrow? With cost segregation, you can do just that. Here’s how:
What is Cost Segregation?
When you buy or build a commercial property, you depreciate the building straight-line over 39 years (or 27.5 years for commercial residential).
However, the building is actually made up of components. The tax law considers that some of these components will actually last the full 39 years. However, pieces and parts of the building have a shorter life.
Cost Segregation is the process of identifying these components and allocating a fraction of the total cost of the building to each component. Then, depending on the component, assigning a shorter depreciation schedule accordingly.
Think of it as a strategy that accelerates your depreciation deductions to defer tax liability and put cash in your pocket interest free.
What is the benefit of cost segregation?
The effect of this approach allows you to realize greater depreciation deductions in the earlier years, which reduces your tax bill and frees up cash.
You get to keep more cash so you can invest and make more money.

Before we started using Echo, we would only recommend a cost segregation study to a client that had a building that cost more than $1,500,000, The problem was the benefit did not justify the cost of the study.With echo, we will now be able recommend a cost segregation study to almost any client that has a commercial building.
Our first study using Echo was on a building that was purchased in 2012 for $350,000. The additional depreciation deduction in 2014 was $31,000 and we were able to do a late partial asset disposition for an additional deduction of $23,000 We now have detail on all of the components of the building to comply with the Tangible Property Regulations.
Echo is a cost effective and streamlined approach to doing a Cost Segregation study and saving our client’s tax dollars.

Our firm had traditionally not utilized cost segregation for our clients. After using Echo as a cost segregation solution, we can actively see the immediate tax benefits for our clients. Echo cost segregation studies are a very practical and efficient way to provide our clients with the results they are looking for to help reduce their tax bills.
