Section 1031 provides an opportunity to defer gains realized from the sale of real property by investing in qualifying replacement property. Exchanges are subject to specific reporting and computational requirements.

It is unusual for an exchange to be between two parties. For this reason the regulations allow a facilitator, called a “qualified intermediary” to be part of an exchange. QI-facilitated exchanges typically involve four parties and must be carried out pursuant to requirements spelled out in the statute and the regulations.

In this two-hour CPE webinar with nationally recognized tax expert and instructor James Hamill, CPA, Ph.D. will explain why and how to complete a like-kind exchange. This will include a discussion of multi-party deferred exchange structures and less common “parking” arrangements. You will learn the mechanics and the reporting obligations of a QI-facilitated exchange to assist clients in satisfying the complex regulations. The session will also discuss computations of realized and recognized gains, and basis of replacement property.
