A like-kind exchange is a powerful tool taxpayers can use to defer gain recognition from the sale of property. A like-kind exchange can be accomplished in a number of ways. Nonetheless, there are specific rules that must be followed in order to completely defer the recognition of gain. A tax professional must be able to advise taxpayers of these rules to avoid an unexpected tax liability. Once a like-kind exchange has been accomplished, a tax professional must calculate the basis in the new property received as well as report the sale on Form 8824, Like-Kind Exchanges. This on-demand webinar will help tax professionals provide the proper information to their clients engaging in a like-kind exchange transaction.
Upon completion of this on-demand webinar, you will be able to:


  • Explain the rules and regulations of §1031.
  • Define the terminology used during an exchange, including qualified exchange accommodation arrangement (QEAA).
