We perform cost segregation services, which accelerate depreciation for certain parts of buildings according to IRS code. This can provide any real estate owner with substantial income tax savings, by increasing depreciation. For more details, please click on that link, or call or email us. This is an extremely good way to increase income, but not many people are aware of it.
