Course Description

Over the past 20 years IRC §1031 tax deferred exchanges have become an increasingly important part of real estate transactions. A §1031 exchange provides for a tremendous tax benefit by allowing owners of real property held for business or investment purposes to defer the capital gains tax normally due upon its sale by reinvesting the net proceeds in “like kind” real property.

This class will provide professionals with an overview of the §1031 exchange tax deferral process. Topics covered include: understanding capital gains and capital gains taxes, the property qualification requirements, the procedure for proper identification of replacement property, and closing procedures. In addition, we will discuss the practical aspects and pitfalls of the exchange process. Finally, the course will provide background to help professionals identify opportunities for their clients, such as: common investor motivations for utilizing an exchange, alternative exchange formats such as reverse and improvement exchanges, and common replacement property options considered by many investors.

Class presentations and written materials are comprehensive and targeted to professionals who may represent property owners, builders, developers, lenders, and other parties who may benefit from an IRC §1031 tax deferred exchange.

Whether you are new to §1031 exchanges or consider yourself well versed, this course covers a wide range of topics related to §1031 exchanges in an easy to learn format.
