Course Description

This intermediate/advanced level webinar provides a concise and thorough overview of IRC Section 1031 tax deferred exchanges for accountants, CPAs and tax advisors.

This webinar covers critical IRS time deadlines in delayed exchanges, “like-kind” requirements including creative property variations like easements, transferable development rights, oil/gas/minerals rights, vacation homes held for investment, fractional ownership (DST and TICs) , partnership/LLC scenarios (and how to best structure in advance of a 1031 exchange), reverse and improvement exchanges, related party transactions and how to avoid common pitfalls and other 1031 related issues. This webinar will provide a summary of current developments regarding applicable Revenue Rulings, PLR’s and other recent IRS guidance on current issues related to 1031 exchanges.
