Course Description

1031 exchange activity is surging. This webinar provides a concise and thorough overview of IRC Section 1031 tax deferred exchanges. In addition to covering critical IRS time deadlines, "like-kind" requirements and other exchange related issues, the class will provide a summary of current developments including reverse exchanges, partnership/LLC issues, applicable Revenue Rulings, PLR's and other IRS guidance on current issues related to exchanges.


Learning Objectives

  • Help tax/legal advisors understand what types of real and personal property can qualify for non-recognition treatment in an exchange and also what types of property are excluded from 1031 tax deferral;
  • Obtain a solid understanding of the wide range of like-kind property that qualifies for a 1031 exchange and also discuss various creative property alternatives available to taxpayers;
  • Learn the exchange equation and the requirements for full or partial tax deferral including understanding cash boot and mortgage boot;
  • Understand the reasons why taxpayers exchange and how a tax deferred exchange can help taxpayers improve their position in the market
  • Understand how higher capital gain taxes and the net investment income tax have increased taxation for real estate investors by 58%
  • Full (and partial) tax deferral and the exchange trends affecting investors in 2014
