Tax Deferred Exchanges & Capital Gains Deferment Strategies
August 16 | 2-6pm with Mike Harper
(CEE2493) 4 elective hours
Realtor members $55 | Non-members $70

Many investors and owners, of non-personal use Real Estate can benefit by postponing/deferring Capital Gains Taxes on sales if they are willing to consider either owner financing or replacing the property sold with other property. These people need help and guidance in making good decisions and understanding the complicated landscape surrounding investment sales, Capital Gains Taxes and options for tax deferment. With the increase in Capital Gains Tax rates in 2013 and potential for future increases or abolition of favorable tax treatment for investments, the volume of these types of deferment has tremendous growth potential. IRC 1031 exchanges are getting increased public interest, yet both the process and the applicability are extremely complicated and fraught with caveats for the unsuspecting seller. This course will provide an understanding of all of the above and will prepare licensees to help sellers identify options and point them to competent professionals (CPA, Attorney and/or Qualified Intermediary).
