Enter your building details and instantly receive a detailed report showing your potential tax savings.
The Residential Cost Segregator™ is an online software program that allows CPA’s to generate custom reports in just minutes, providing tax benefits to clients without hiring a specialist. The software is available for residential rental properties up to 6 units with a depreciable tax basis of $500,000 or less (purchase price less land).
A Condo Tax Basis Allocation Study for mixed-use projects uses engineering based techniques to maximize cost allocations toward the residential condominiums, thereby lowering taxable gains when each unit is sold.
