Tax Depreciation Explained:

Tax depreciation allows you to deduct a portion of a property's value as a non-cash expense over time. This deduction lowers your taxable income, increasing your overall returns.

Accelerated vs. Straight-Line Depreciation:

Explore different depreciation methods. Accelerated depreciation front-loads deductions, providing greater immediate tax benefits, while straight-line depreciation offers consistency.

Cost Segregation:

Consider cost segregation studies, which identify property components that can be depreciated over shorter periods. This strategy accelerates depreciation, optimizing tax benefits.
