Course Materials

This teleconference will provide tax advisors and corporate tax professionals with an in-depth analysis of Sect. 1031 regulations and guidance, explore frequently faced compliance decisions, and address evolving like-kind exchange structures.


Staying current with Sect. 1031 on like-kind exchanges and associated IRS guidance and court rulings is vital for tax advisors and corporate taxpayers. They must understand what the regs stipulate and the questions left unanswered for long-tried transactions and newly adapted structures.

At all stages, Sect. 1031 forces important decisions. What business entities can qualify for the tax deferral? What structures are available for a Sect. 1031 exchange? What kinds of real and personal property, and financial instruments, can be used and which are specifically excluded?

Meanwhile, advisors and taxpayers face difficult challenges with transfers in and out of partnerships, and certain structures like non-safe harbor reverse exchanges. A thorough briefing on the 1031 regs and guidance, and how they are employed in the marketplace, can prepare you for tough decisions.

Listen as our panel of experienced federal tax advisors brings you current on Sect. 1031 for like-kind exchanges, and its application.

    1. Qualified purpose requirement
