Overview Cost segregation is a powerful tax planning strategy used by real estate
owners and tenants to accelerate significant depreciation deductions associated
with buildings and improvements of all types and sizes. Although cost
segregation has become quite popular in recent years, many tax advisors and real
estate owners are still missing significant opportunities because they are
unfamiliar with the many applications.
This live audio conference combines two of Bedford’s most popular CPE sessions;
providing both an introduction to cost segregation, as well as some more
advanced planning ideas. The speakers will provide a solid understanding of cost
segregation and the benefits of applying this strategy. We will then discuss the
various applications for cost segregation, beyond newly constructed and newly
acquired properties. The audio conference concludes with an overview of what the
IRS is looking for in a cost segregation study.
