Tips for CPAs to Advise Their Clients on 1031 Exchanges

CPA Client

CPAs are always looking for tax strategies that can save money for their clients. The like-kind exchange is one such strategy that can be hugely beneficial. In this article, we are going to talk about how CPAs can best advise their clients on 1031 exchanges of real estate.

1031 Considerations for Your Clients

From a tax perspective, 1031 exchanges can provide huge benefits to your clients who are looking to sell real estate. A like-kind exchange allows a taxpayer to defer capital gains tax on the sale of investment real estate, as long as the net proceeds are reinvested into a new replacement property.

If your client is looking to sell a piece of investment real estate, be sure to tell them about the 1031 exchange option and how it can save them a lot of money in capital gains taxes.

Confer with a 1031 Professional

1031 exchanges come with a lot of ins and outs that can significantly complicate matters quickly. When dealing with a 1031 exchange, it’s always a good idea to consult with a qualified intermediary who knows section 1031 top to bottom. We often work with CPAs to help them advise their clients on the best course of action with 1031 exchanges. We’d be happy to help you provide the best possible tax advice to your clients.
