ACRS cost segregation studies have proven to be an effective income tax planning tool, one of the few still available. I frequently recommend them to my clients, and a pre-engagement proposal from ACRS estimates how soon the tax savings will offset the cost of the study. Segregating the five and fifteen year property costs, instead of depreciating total costs over 39 years, always defers significant tax dollars, while not affecting depreciation expense on GAAP based financials. My clients have been most appreciative of lower income tax bills, and then refer me to their peers who complain about high taxes.
