Are like-kind exchanges still advisable with tax reform on the horizon?
02/08/21
One thing that all of these plans have in common is tax rate reduction, an outcome that would make like-kind exchanges even more compelling currently. Not only would an exchanger get the benefits of paying taxes later, but at the time payment is made, it would likely be payable at a lesser rate than at the time of the property sale. There is a reason that Section 1031 has remained in the Code since 1921 and there continue to be sound reasons for it to remain under tax reform.
Politicians Target 1031 Exchanges
02/08/21
As another election draws closer, 1031 exchange reform has become a campaign topic again. We have seen this many times before, and the truth is that 1031 exchanges directly stimulate economic growth and is not a tax shelter for wealthy investors. From funneling revenue to Main Street America, to reducing the cost of capital, 1031 exchange allows Americans to reap the benefits in a variety of ways.

2013 FEA Annual Conference
06/19/20
As part of Accruit’s ongoing efforts to promote 1031 Like-Kind Exchanges (LKE), we were busy as ever at the annual Federation of Exchange Accommodators’ (FEA) annual conference, which was hosted in Denver earlier this month. With one of the largest turnouts in years, we’re pleased to announce that the 1031 LKE market is on the rebound after the recent economic crisis, especially in regards to real estate exchanges. With no gains to defer, FEA members had been reporting as few as 1 or 2 transactions all year. Now, with property values on the rise, taxpayers are increasingly looking to defer gains through LKEs upon the sale of their investment and business use assets.
