Course Description

Section 1031 like-kind exchanges can be intimidating. This course helps make them more accessible by covering all aspects of like-kind exchanges, including what property qualifies, transaction requirements, and reporting requirements. It also goes into more complex issues, such as deferred exchanges, reverse exchanges, qualified intermediaries, and related parties. The computation of basis is also covered, along with the interaction between like-kind exchanges and installment sales.
