Distinguish Yourself with Comprehensive Real Estate Tax Planning

One of the best aspects of owning commercial real estate are the many Tax Benefits associated with real estate ownership. At every phase of the Real Estate Tax Lifecycle™ many tax benefits are available, yet the Treasury Department reports that less than 22% of all federal, state and local tax benefits are claimed. This results in a 78% tax gap.

Most of the CRE Brokers say that the number one objection to listing a property for sale are the sellers’ fear of the high taxes which may be owed from selling. Often, in today’s supply constrained market, attractive replacement properties for an exchange are impossible to find.

Our team of tax specialists, tax attorney’s, CPA’s, engineers and others look for and identify every available benefit which could reduce taxes, increase cash flow and defer, reduce or eliminate capital gains taxes after a sale. As one of our strategies, wouldn’t your clients like to know how to significantly mitigate Capital Gain Taxes without doing a 1031 exchange? J Pope Tax Consulting can show you how to implement this strategy with your clients!

For example, with a recent transaction, where a 1031 exchange was not possible due to diminished inventory, a California CRE Broker worked with our group of experts to find a solution to the seller’s desire to sell, but not if the result would have been excessive taxes. Attractive replacement properties could not be found, which is common today.

The seller was motivated to sell immediately, as opposed to the family selling after his death in a few years, because the market for his property had more than doubled in value in less than 18 months, and he believed that offers now would not hold in the future.

The potential transaction resulted in a $40 million gain and would have normally left a $25.2 million federal, state and estate tax bill.

Our team applied various tax strategies, all tax code compliant, resulting in reducing the tax bill from $25.2 million to $4.4 million. A substantial $35.6 million went to the family with tax planning versus $19.2 million without tax planning.

Needless to say, the broker earned an $800,000 commission and this would not have occurred if the buyer were faced with the excessive tax bill.
