Additional Cash Flow

Cost Segregation is an application by which commercial property owners can accelerate depreciation and reduce the amount of taxes owed. By choosing the right depreciation method, owners can increase their cash flow by an average of $35,000-$60,000 per million dollars of self-storage building costs.


  • $490k Standard Self-Storage
    $1.4 M Facility
    $2.3 M Climate Control
  • The facility does not have to be new construction
  • Additional cash flow comes from accelerated depreciation and
  • Tax Reform’s 100% bonus depreciation.
  • Cost segregation is an IRS-approved method
  • Cost segregation does not trigger audits

Deductions from Renovations

“Use it or lose it” is the name of the game when taking deductions from your renovations. Put extra cash in your pocket by writing off parts and components of your facility that have been discarded but remain on the depreciation schedule. In the future, this must be done in the current tax year. 2014 is the last tax year in which you can catch-up for previous years.

Deductions from Renovations

  • Tangible Property Regulations are a complete reboot of the tax code pertaining to depreciation.
  • Write-off previously installed doors, AC units, roofs, etc., in tax year 2014. Going forward, Tangible Property Regulations will require that deductions be taken in the same tax year for these improvements.
  • CSSI is specifically experienced in getting these deductions. Our experts serve as advisors to the AICPA (American Institute of Certified Public Accountants) in the areas of cost segregation and Tangible Property Regulations.
  • CSSI does all the work, then delivers the results to your tax professional to include in your tax return.
