The word "taxes" inspires fear from all types of investors, but especially in Chicago. From income tax, to property tax, we’re paying a lot. Depreciation is one of Real Estate’s greatest benefits, and there is a way to maximize that benefit immediately. Cost Seg Kev is here today to explain what cost segregation is and how it can be used to offset your tax liability. If you’re not trying to save hundreds of thousands of dollars from here on out, well, this isn’t the episode for you. Listen in and if you learned something, please share us with someone who can also benefit.
