In this episode we covered: How does one know if their property is a good candidate for a cost segregation study? What does one look for in a cost segregation firm? Should one always get an upfront estimate first? Is one able to capture some of the benefits of cost segregation retroactively, if they've already held a property for a long time? Looking at the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, does the change in the Act allow property owners to take their depreciation deductions much faster. Is this temporary, or a permanent change in the law? How does any of this impact an investor’s personal income taxes?

Episode 12: Yonah Weiss: All about saving on Taxes with Real estate

The Real Path to BYOB(Be your own Boss)

Key Point Summary·        All kinds of deductions that you might have if you have a mortgage is mortgage expenses deduction. Often, when you do real estate tax savings, the topic is all about this thing called depreciation. ·        The IRS allows you to take a tax write-off tax deduction based on the concept your property will go down in value as time goes on. The day you buy a property is the purchase price spent on buying, even if you only put down a certain down payment. The whole purchase price is taken and then divided by 27 and a half years. That's the amount of time the IRS says that multifamily properties depreciate.·        When you're talking about the tax benefits of tax deductions, that's the biggest one. It's basically a free deduction that you're able to lower your tax liability by a huge chunk every single year just by the fact that you bought the property.·        Yonah says that there's no difference between single-family to multifamily. The only difference is that when you get into other commercial properties besides multifamily, instead of being a 27 and a half year depreciation schedule, it's a 39-year depreciation schedule.·        The purchase price determines how much depreciation you can take over the ownership. It goes down to take off the land value, which is deducted, which can sometimes be turned by an appraisal with the appraised land value or county property taxes.·        Yonah says that the deposition is applicable for new construction but only if it is new construction to hold meaning as a rental property. It only begins once you place it in service, so your tax deduction only starts once the construction is fully completed.·        According to Yonah, it's really just an advanced form of depreciation where we take the cost and instead of taking the whole thing as a lump sum and dividing that by 27 and a half years, the IRS says that you can segregate those costs into different categories that depreciate things in your building as you depreciate on different varying levels. ·        Yonah says you can take a huge chunk of the cost over a five-year deduction period instead of lumping it all together and just taking a little bit each year.·        Cost Segregation benefits those who are just trying to call the property for a smaller duration of time to get that advantage in the years that they hold stuff taking it over.·        Suppose you are a real estate investor who buys multiple properties, continuously investing, and buying more and selling maybe. In that case, you can really benefit from this no matter how long you're holding it for. Because depreciation for one property can be used to offset your income from all of your properties. It's a strategy that couples with the overall business strategy of investing.·        Rental income is considered passive income. A huge amount of depreciation is passive deductions. Your passive deductions are used against your passive income and it's lumped together. If you have one or multiple properties, all of your passive income is locked all together in one bucket, including all of your depreciation.·        Yonah says that everyone's greatest goal is to take advantage of the passive sides of the income.·        Passive deductions can only be used against your passive income. The exception is that when you're considered a Real Estate Professional. You or your spouse can qualify for the status but only one of you is qualified. Once you have this qualification, you now don't have that limitation. The passive deduction is only used against the passive income. You can use the passive deduction

E170: Cost Segregation 101 - Yonah Weiss

The Investor Mindset - Real Estate Show

This week I have Yonah Weiss on the show, a cost segregation specialist, and we dive deep into this amazing way of minimizing or even eliminating your income tax. Don’t miss it!👉👉 Get The Passive Investing Playbook - https://theinvestormindset.com/passiveSo what is cost segregation? Well, it's an advanced form of depreciation and depreciation is a tax deduction that any property owner gets when they buy a property. This means that you can take the cost of the property (aside from your personal residence) and take it as an income tax writeoff. As this typically happens over a long period of time, we can reallocate that cost to different components that depreciate at faster rates. This means taking larger tax reductions in earlier years of ownership. So this is something fundamental that you really want to be doing as an investor to save a lot on your tax returns. Yonah is a powerhouse with property owners' tax savings. As Business Director at Madison SPECS, a national Cost Segregation leader, he has assisted clients in saving tens of millions of dollars on taxes through cost segregation. He has a background in teaching and a passion for real estate and helping others. He’s a real estate investor and host of the new podcast Weiss Advice.

Depreciation is a tax deduction that any property owner gets when they buy a property. This means that you can take the cost of the property (aside from your personal residence) and take it as an income tax writeoff. As this typically happens over a long period of time, we can reallocate that cost to different components that depreciate at faster rates. This means taking larger tax reductions in earlier years of ownership.  2. Real estate is an amazing way of minimizing or even eliminating income tax.  3. On average from 25% - 50% of the purchase price can be reallocated in cost segregation depending on what type of asset class it is.  4. Depreciation starts when you buy a property and it's based on purchase price.  5. On a major renovation project, only the renovation cost can depreciate at a faster rate and not the purchase price. The depreciation also only starts when the property is rent ready.  6. It typically takes a few weeks to turn around the cost segregation study.  7.  An engineer is needed to carry out the study and it's for this reason that someone like an account can't do the job for you.  8.  For people that aren't real estate professionals, you can still benefit from depreciation but only on the passive income you earn and not on your regular income. The main beneficiaries of this technique are going to be real estate professionals as they can use depreciation across all their income.  9. As a passive investor with multiple investments, the depreciation from a property can spill over and be used to offset income from other investments as well.  10. If the property is refinanced then the money you receive as an investor will be tax free.  11. Bonus depreciation means that once you've allocated assets to faster depreciation schedules, you can take 100% of the depreciation tax deduction in the first year instead of spreading it out.  12. A depreciation recapture tax means that you're taxed on the amount of depreciation that was taken over the investment period. It doesn't mean that you have to pay back everything you've saved in the process.   BOOKSThe Passive Investing Playbook - https://theinvestormindset.com/passive LINKShttps://www.yonahweiss.com/https://www.linkedin.com/in/cost-segregation-yonah-weiss/Learn more about investing with Steven at https://theinvestormindset.com/investJoin the MultiFamilyMBA and get exclusive free training: https://theinvestormindset.com/mfmba
