Southeast Cost Segregation, Tampa, FL (2008)

Southeast Cost Segregation specialized in income tax support by completing cost segregation studies. Randall was the principal and assisted clients in the process to identify personal property assets that often got buried or lumped together within the real property asset. As a cost segregation consultant he reclassified those assets to the shortest possible depreciable life to enable the real estate owner to maximize their tax depreciation deduction, thereby reducing current income tax obligations.
