Reduce your current tax liability.
Increase Cash Flow
Cost segregation helps you depreciate parts of your property faster, decreasing your tax liability and increasing your cash flow. Some assets of your property can be depreciated in 5, 10, or 15 years instead of the traditional 39 year or 27.5 year straight-line depreciation. We find more of these depreciable assets than traditional cost segregation studies. This frees up cash for other investments or to simply put more money in your pocket.
We never outsource.

We’re proud of our team and only hire the absolute best in the business.
More benefits thanks to the Tax Cut and Jobs Act
MAXIMIZE YOUR BENEFIT
It’s never made more sense to get a cost segregation study, the benefits are at their highest level ever. With the enactment of the Tax Cut and Jobs Act (TCJA) in November 2017, short-life assets (under 20 years) qualify for 100% bonus depreciation. What does this mean? In short, it allows you to take 100% of the depreciation in the “first year” of ownership, unused portions will carry forward into future years. Plus, the TCJA added the provision to take bonus depreciation on ‘used property’ ( the term the IRS has for property acquisitions – this is a first!). Like we said, the benefits are better than ever.
It’s not too late.
RECLAIM “MISSED” DEDUCTION
Have you owned your property for 5-15 years? You don’t have to amend your previous year tax forms to benefit fully from a cost segregation study. Our tax experts can look at any deductions that you may have missed in the past and redeem as much as possible to get your finances back on track.
Benefit from our “3-in-1” Study
Our study offers a strong value proposition, both today with the initial results, and in the future for disposition/abandonment.
ELB’s proprietary fully engineered and accounted methodology details all building components; both accelerated (5, 7, and 15 year) and straight-line items.
Due to our methodology and equal treatment of all accelerated and straight-line components, our study also serves as an asset management tool, which our competitors typically charge extra to provide.
Where appropriate, ELB can include disposition and/or abandonment in its initial study. Additionally, our asset management detail effectively allows for disposition, retirement and abandonment of assets for future upgrades, maintenance and/or repairs.

What are our Clients saying?
“Last year, we had cost segregation studies done at three of our schools. The studies produced immediate cash flow benefits that far surpassed our original estimates. Money we had originally allotted for our taxes could instead be put to other good uses.”
