Tax Deferred Alternatives to Selling Your Real Estate

Join us to learn from Real Estate, Tax and Investment experts on how to defer capital gain taxes by investing in a Private Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT). We will discuss the advantages and walk through how to execute an Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 721, more commonly known as an UPREIT (Umbrella Partnership Real Estate Investment Trust). This is an alternative to the IRC Section 1031. An UPREIT is a structure that permits real estate owners to exchange their property holdings for Limited Partnership (LP) units in a REIT as a tax deferred exchange. UPREITS are often an attractive option for real estate owners looking to dispose of real estate while taking advantage of the ability to defer capital gains, as well as the following benefits: Estate Simplification and Tax Strategy, Reduced Risk, and Liquidity
