About the Teleseminar

The tax considerations of real estate deals – development, ownership, and sale or like-kind exchange – are often a major component of the economics of the underlying transaction.  This is particularly so in the current climate of rising tax rates, the restriction of certain tax benefits, and where property values still have not fully stabilized.  Getting the tax piece of a deal right and form the beginning is often essential to transaction.  This puts a premium on tax planning at every stage of a deal, to ensure the underling benefit of the bargain is not lost.  This program will provide you with a practical guide to major tax planning issues in real estate deals, including choice of entity, capital gains and distribution planning after the new 3.8% Medicare tax, and advanced like-kind exchange issues.

Day 2 – January 23, 2013:

  • Capital gains planning after the new 3.8% Medicare tax on real estate partnerships
  • Techniques for minimizing taxes on the sale or exchange of property
  • Advanced Like-Kind exchange planning techniques
