Are you making the most of depreciation deductions?
Abstract: Dealerships that own real estate may find that a cost segregation study can be an effective way to lower their tax bill. Such a study identifies, segregates and reclassifies qualifying property into asset groups with shorter depreciable lives of five, seven or 15 years. By reclassifying assets, dealers can maximize their depreciation deductions in the early years, improving cash flow sooner rather than later. This article discusses the types of assets that qualify and the kinds of tax savings that can result.
