A Few Tips to Cut Your Capital Gains Tax Burden when Selling Real Estate

Capital Gains Tax Burden

Capital gains taxes are at the top of mind for many real estate investors. In this article, we are going to offer up a few tips for cutting your capital gains tax burden when selling real estate.

Qualified Opportunity Funds

Qualified opportunity funds are a new method for deferring capital gains taxes. When selling a piece of real estate, you can move your sales proceeds into a qualified opportunity fund and defer your capital gains tax burden. However, be aware that these capital gains taxes will come due come December 26, 2026.

1031 Exchanges

1031 exchanges are perhaps the best tool for reducing your capital gains taxes when selling a piece of investment real estate. By setting your transaction up as a 1031 exchange, you can defer your capital gains taxes on the sale and reinvest those proceeds into a bigger, better replacement property. The benefits are numerous – you get to avoid a tax windfall and keep your money working for you in a continued investment.
