Prerequisites

A basic understanding of the provisions for recognizing gain or loss on the sale of real property

Description

When real property is sold for a gain, we always try to find ways to defer recognizing income so it won't be necessary to send a check to Uncle Sam. There are two provisions within the Internal Revenue Code that allow the taxpayer to defer recognition of immediate taxable gain in the year of sale: installment sales and like-kind exchanges. Knowing how and when to utilize these provisions makes the CPA very valuable to either their client or the entity they work for.
