Tax Deferment Strategies
Property investors have two powerful tools for building and preserving their real estate wealth. The IRS 1031 Tax-Deferred Exchange allows investors to defer paying capital gains taxes from the sale of investment real property, if the proceeds are immediately re-invested into "Like-Kind" property. Another strategy is to use tax advantaged accounts (IRAs and 401(k)) to acquire real estate. Two leading experts will co-teach this 3-hour seminar where you will learn the rules, regulations, prohibitions and logistics of using these valuable tools.
