We’ve had business owners, managers and even CPAs tell us that the benefits of participating in a 1031 Exchange are not big enough or immediate enough to make it worthwhile. We have a hard time agreeing: improved cash flow and tax exposure take effect as soon as an Exchanger’s next quarterly estimated tax payment is due. If a company or individual isn’t in that position, then benefits kick in when the annual return and accompanying payment are due. When these dates arrive, so do the commendations: “we should have been doing these for the past ten years!”; or “I can’t believe we kept 30% more (in proceeds from relinquished assets) in our pocket!” 1031 Exchanges are EFFECTIVE, SAFE & SIMPLE.
