Duffy + Duffy Cost Segregation Experts

Cost Segregation allows commercial building owners to generate cash flow by accelerating depreciation deductions on their buildings and deferring taxes. An engineering-based Cost Segregation Study is the only method recognized by the IRS to identify Personal Property and Land Improvements contained in a commercial structure. Read an article, co-written by Dennis Duffy, as published in Builder’s Exchange Magazine.

"Duffy + Duffy's team of experts conducted a cost segregation study for Cawrse & Associates Inc. newly constructed office building, and their existing office building. The income tax deferrals and cash flow generated through cost segregation for both buildings was significant. Cost Segregation is a smart and valuable tax planning tool that every owner should do."
Craig E. Cawrse, FASLA, Cawrse & Associates, Inc.

"My CPA recommended Duffy+Duffy Cost Segregation for Lyon Video. After a detailed analysis of our construction plans and on sight visits, Duffy+Duffy engineers identified significant personal property and land improvements that qualified for accelerated and bonus depreciation. Over 40% of the construction cost of Lyon Video's newly constructed headquarters could be depreciated over a much shorter depreciation life. The income tax savings from the cost segregation study provided Lyon Video with additional cash and working capital that we were able to use for our expanding business. Cost Segregation is a common-sense and legal income tax planning tool for building owners."
Bob Lyon, Lyon Video. Columbus, OH
