Is a Tax-Deferred Exchange Right for You? 

Many real estate investors have found it convenient or necessary when liquidating an investment interest to use Internal Revenue Code Section 1031 like-kind exchanges to avoid or defer capital gains taxes and depreciation recapture. Our team is experienced in tax-deferred exchanges and is available for advice about how this reinvestment strategy can work for you. In this capacity, we prepare and distribute the documents necessary to complete the exchange transaction, including instructions to the closing attorneys handling the sale and purchase. Because the 1031 exchange deadlines can be tight and the rules can be complicated, contact us as soon as you plan to sell your property to discuss your like-kind exchange questions and tax-deferred benefits.
