Property purchase price is allocated to land and building at certain ratio. The percentage allocated to building in the United States tends to be larger than that in Japan. Accordingly, you can recognize more depreciation expense and save taxes on your income.
In Japan, you can depreciate the old property for 4 years while you need to depreciate it for 27 years in the United States due to the difference in the tax laws. As a result, you can have huge tax-savings in the early years and you can make a smooth transition to further investments.
