Cost segregation is a highly specialized division of accounting work that goes beyond the expertise of traditional CPAs. While your CPA may excel in general accounting tasks, our team specializes in identifying and allocating costs to specific assets within your hotel. This detailed analysis allows us to unlock hidden tax benefits and savings that your CPA may not be aware of. We often work with our client’s CPAs when it makes sense.

We met Ashley and the MSC team through our CPA in 2016. Ashley & Dave came and met with us, and we were able to review our entire portfolio and generate substantial tax deductions starting in 2016 and each year thereafter. We also worked with Ashley and the team on identifying assets we could write off that were being replaced during improvements. Ashley worked closely with our CPA throughout this entire process. It’s great to align with a group that not only you can rely on for quality Cost Segregation Studies but also other tax advice when purchasing and improving hospitality properties. We look forward to working with the MSC team in years to come.
