What Is A Cost Segregation Study?
A cost segregation study is a set of calculations created by an independent firm with extensive tax and construction knowledge. At CSSI®, we create an engineering-based cost segregation study by analyzing your building and its assets within U.S. tax code guidelines. When an engineering-based study is performed, actual cost records and construction documents are reviewed, when available, and a site visit is completed. Our methodical approach identifies your commercial property’s individual components, which are included in your detailed cost segregation study.
How Does A Cost Segregation Study Work?
Most buildings are depreciated over 27.5- or 39-years. A cost segregation study re-categorizes a portion of your building into 5-, 7- or 15-year class lives. When the usable lives of these items are accelerated, your income is reduced, thus, reducing your income taxes.
Within the first five years of building ownership, you could save up to $100,000 for every $1 million in building costs. Cost segregation has been recommended by the AICPA and many leading financial publications, including the Journal of Accountancy.
Our preliminary analysis is always available at no cost.

My industry experience includes business management and growth strategy consulting services, retirement and estate planning, SaaS, biotech, real estate, medical devices, logistics, investment banking, wealth management, capital markets, private equity, and venture capital.
I graduated with a Master of Arts & Bachelor of Arts from the University of Illinois. I have worked in and around financial services for most of my career. I started in asset management and transitioned into private equity and venture capital before founding and selling several boutique firms. My focus these days is on saving people money and helping them take advantage of myriad overlooked benefits.
As an avid outdoorsman, I enjoy hunting, fishing, birdwatching, gardening, diving, biking, foraging, skiing, and collecting rocks and faceted gemstones. Also, I usually read 25-50 novels a year while I work on my first fictional publication. I’m a historian, published author, and, at one point, was one of the top competitive anglers in the Southeastern United States. While not tournament fishing, I ran a successful charter fishing outfit based in Naples, Florida.
