However, cost segregation allows for accelerated availment of this tax break after a thorough property assessment. An expert will determine the appropriate value after accounting for actual decline of the property’s component parts.

Those considered passive entities will have tax duties under passive income versus the higher federal income tax.

Under this tax break, investors may defer the capital gains taxes on the sale of a property to reinvest the pre-tax profits in an equal or greater value property.
