Cost Segregation Studies

Stout's cost segregation studies represent the analysis and allocation, or re-allocation, of construction or acquisition costs amongst various building systems and components. Most commonly, our cost segregation studies are performed to identify and quantify building and site components eligible for accelerated depreciation methods for federal income tax purposes.

Cost segregation studies:

  • Are applicable to both constructed and acquired real estate
  • Can encompass a single or multiple location(s) and placed in service years
  • Involve identifying building and site components that have a shorter tax depreciation recovery period than real property (per the US Internal Revenue Code)
  • Require tax knowledge to identify qualifying assets, and construction industry expertise to quantify related costs
