Cost Segregation for Airbnb, Vrbo, HomeAway

If you’re an Airbnb, Vrbo, or HomeAway host, you’re likely familiar with the complexities of managing and optimizing rental properties. What you may not be aware of, however, is a powerful financial tool that can help you maximize your property’s financial benefits while minimizing your tax liability – Residential Cost Segregation®.

This post will explore how KBKG’s Residential Cost Segregator® can be your best ally in short-term rental property management.

Understanding Residential Cost Segregation With KBKG

Residential cost segregation is a tax strategy that allows property owners to accelerate depreciation deductions for certain residential rental property assets.

This solution can enhance cash flow, achieve substantial tax savings, and ultimately improve your residential rental property’s financial performance. Conducting a cost segregation study for a residential rental property maximizes first-year bonus depreciation and catches up on missed depreciation opportunities from prior years. While cost segregation is a well-known commercial real estate practice, residential property owners often overlook it and its benefits.

Assets That Qualify for Residential Cost Segregation

Residential cost segregation typically applies to a wide range of short-term rental property assets that you can reclassify into shorter depreciable lives. These assets include major appliances, such as:

  • Refrigerators, dishwashers, and laundry machines: which you can depreciate over five years.
  • Certain lighting fixtures, plumbing fixtures and materials, cabinets and countertops, and removable flooring: which can potentially be depreciated over five years.
  • Decorative items such as window treatments and furnishings: which may qualify for the 5-year life category.

With a cost segregation study, you can separate these assets from the building itself and depreciate on accelerated life schedules rather than over 39 years. This results in increased depreciation deductions in the earlier years of ownership.
