Whether we like it or not, today’s tax laws are so complicated that filing a relatively simple return can be confusing. It is just too easy to overlook deductions and credits to which you are entitled. Even if you use a computer software program, there’s no substitute for the assistance of an experienced tax professional.

Like-Kind 1031 Exchanges
Whenever you sell a business or investment property and you have a gain, you generally pay tax on the gain at the time of sale. The IRS provides in Section 1031 an exception and allows you to postpone paying tax on the gain if you reinvest the proceeds in similar property as part of a qualifying “like-kind exchange.” Gain deferred in a like-kind exchange under Section 1031 is tax-deferred, but it is not tax-free. The exchange can include like-kind property exclusively or it can include like-kind property along with cash, liabilities, and property that are not like-kind. But if you receive cash, relief from debt, or property that is not like-kind, you may be responsible for a taxable gain in the year of the exchange.
