Owners of specialized real estate are missing out on tax advantages. And they have been for some time. These advantages hinge upon depreciation rules which, in some cases, allow property owners to write off building and land improvements over as few as five years. For commercial property owners in Carroll County, Ohio and Columbiana County, Ohio, this makes for much larger deductions than the general 39-year depreciation period. Same goes for owners of income-producing residential property in Harrison County, Ohio and Stark County, Ohio who are depreciating property over 27.5 years. And Appalachian Basin CPAs in Canton, Ohio can help all get bigger tax breaks by replacing existing accounting methods with cost segregation.
