NOVEMBER 2016 - CALL TO ACTION: Preserve Section 1031 from Tax Reform
***CALL TO ACTION***
 
 PRESERVE SECTION 1031 FROM TAX REFORM

We recently attended the Jeremiah Long Memorial National Conference on Like-Kind Exchanges. At the conference a lobbyist spoke about the likelihood that tax revenue could be raised by elimination of 1031 exchange from the income tax code. There has been much speculation about whether elimination of 1031 deferrals would, in fact, become a revenue raiser or cause transactional velocity to decline to a point where other tax revenues are lost from trickle down job losses. Elimination of 1031 benefits along with estate tax would become very detrimental to an owners ability to sell low basis real estate.

You can become an expert on the positive impact of Section 1031 on the economy and asset prices by reviewing the summaries of the Ling & Petrova and Ernst & Young studies: here and here respectively.
