Discovered Depreciable Property on Purchased Golf Course
Our client purchased a golf course for $6.7 million in 2013. Due to complex depreciation rules surrounding golf courses, and to ensure they weren’t leaving deductions on the table, our client decided to perform a cost segregation study on the purchase. During the study, it was determined that the tees and greens were up to USGA standards and therefore we could treat what otherwise would be non-depreciable land as depreciation property. The net present value of the study was over $309,000.
