Understand the Pros and Cons of the New Tax Law – and Reap the Benefits with Confidence!
The vast changes made by the complex Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) will have a huge impact on real estate developers, contractors and investors. With the TCJA’s sweeping changes officially in effect, you need to act fast to mitigate the negative impact of certain provisions – and take advantage of the positive provisions – through the right planning strategies.
In this webinar, taxation specialist Haleh Naimi will decode the not-so-straightforward TCJA, and discuss the positive and negative implications of the new tax rules on the real estate and construction industry. She will explain the key provisions of TCJA – such as accounting methods, depreciation, carried interest, business interest deduction limitations, net operating loss limitations, and the 20% qualified business income deduction – and explain how these provisions will impact developers, investors and contractors in 2018 and beyond. She will provide examples to demonstrate how you can mitigate the negative impact of certain TCJA provisions, and take advantage of some of the other provisions.
Naimi will specifically focus on the alternative depreciation schedules, the holding period for section 1231 gains and 1250 depreciation recapture, and the section 1031 like-kind exchange rules for businesses that comprise real estate and personal property assets – such as hotels, skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities. You will get valuable insights on choice of entity considerations, and learn about the projected financial benefits of converting existing entities to optimize after tax returns.
