This webinar will explain methods available to swap assets held in partnerships, including methods that combine eligibility for Section 1031 treatment. Our panel of partnership tax experts will explain drop and swap, swap and drop, and mixing bowl strategies available to partners that allow for an exchange of assets while deferring tax on any inherent gain.

Description

Section 1031 specifically excludes partnership interests as eligible property for like-kind exchanges. Drop and swaps allow partners to receive individual ownership interests separately so that each partner can do a 1031 exchange or exit a partnership or LLC as they prefer. The investment is dropped into a tenancy in common (TIC) and subsequently swapped. The conversion must comply with complex regulations for the transaction to be respected. The timing of the drop and the swap is critical.

A mixing bowl structure enables partners to trade assets by contributing the assets to a newly created partnership and to defer the tax on the exchange. However, the partners must execute the transaction correctly to avoid the disguised sale and anti-mixing bowl sanctions. Tax advisers working with partnerships and LLCs need to understand how these transactions are structured so that taxpayers can defer taxes on their investments.

Listen as our authoritative panel explains strategies to exchange assets, preserve the benefits of Section 1031, and avoid anti-mixing bowl rules and other sanctions.
