Revisiting the Definition of "Real Property" After Tax Reform: Structuring 1031 Like-Kind Exchanges
Recording of a 90-minute CLE/CPE webinar with Q&A
This CLE webinar will examine the impact of tax reform on like-kind exchanges under IRC Section 1031 with a particular focus on what now qualifies as “real property” and what constitutes unadjusted basis of replacement property for purposes of the new IRC Section 199A deduction. The panel will discuss the requirements for like-kind exchanges to qualify for tax-deferred treatment, and provide best practices for structuring transactions to avoid adverse tax consequences after closing.
- Tax reform and the new real property requirement under IRC Section 1031
- Defining real property under Section 1031 and in other contexts
- Framework of 1031 exchanges
- Reverse exchanges
- Forward exchanges
- Tenants in common and DSTs
- Section 1031(f) related-party rule
- Improvements exchanges
- Drop-and-swap strategies
The panel will review these and other high priority issues:
- Given the new Section 1031 limitations imposed under the Act, what kinds of property interests will qualify for Section 1031 treatment?
- What is the role and what are the restrictions of the exchange facilitator?
- How can counsel help clients avoid the 1031(f) restrictions in related-party exchanges?
- Is there a “holding period requirement” under Section 1031?
- What are the requirements for a reverse exchange under Section 1031?
- What are viable structures for improvements exchanges?
- What are current drop-and-swap practices?
