Do You or Your Clients Struggle With Capital Gains Tax and Depreciation Recapture When Selling Highly Appreciated Assets?

  • Is a 1031 exchange pressuring you to overpay? Do you want a backup plan for a failed 1031?
  • Is it time to become debt free for the business or real estate you are selling? 
  • Are you selling your primary residence and the $250,000 or $500,000 exclusion is not enough to offset the capital gains tax? 
  • Are you selling your business and want to defer your capital gains tax instead of paying it to Uncle Sam? 
  • Is it time to retire from toilets, trash, liability, and managing employees? 
  • Are you are struggling with High Capital Gains Tax on the sale of your asset of around 30-50% of your gain?
  • Is estate tax a concern? 

 

The deferred sales trust can help you defer your tax to preserve wealth by deferring 30-50% of your gain and giving you the potential to earn interest on this pre-taxed amount. It also gives you the option to sell high (at any time) and buy low (at any time) (Optimal time) to create wealth.  It gives you the opportunity to diversify your equity which helps to protect your wealth and it can defer capital gains tax on the sale of almost any type of highly appreciated asset including:

Selling Business?

Are you selling your business and want to defer your capital gains tax instead of paying it to Uncle Sam?

Selling Primary Home?

Selling your primary residence and the $250,000 or $500,000 exception is not enough to offset their capital gains tax?

While a 1031 Exchange cannot be used to defer the capital gains taxes on the sale of a primary home a deferred sales trust can. This creates a significant tax deferral opportunity for owners of highly appreciated personal residences who want to relocate, downsize or otherwise want to dispose of such an asset. Many of our clients feel real estate rich and cash flow poor and want to gain freedom from their home in exchange for a passive income stream. Keep in mind that using the deferred sales trust option is only necessary for residences of significant value over the initial purchase price + improvements due to IRC Section 121 which provides an exclusion of capital gains of up to $250,000 per person or $500,000 for a married couple upon the sale of their primary residence. For example, a home that is purchased by a married couple for $1,000,000, which is then sold for $1,500,000 will not be subject to capital gains taxes because the amount of the capital gain is within the $500,000 exemption limit for that couple. To qualify for section 121 usually means the person must have resided in the home for two of the immediately preceding five years to take advantage of the exclusion.

Selling Commercial Real Estate?

Tired of chasing overpriced 1031 Commercial Real Estate in a short period of time?

Reluctant to sell your commercial real estate because there are little to no 1031 properties to trade into? 

Want a back up plan for a failed 1031? 

Tired of selling your property and just paying the tax due to non-flexible capital gains tax deferral strategies? 

Do you want to trade your toilets, trash, management and liability for time, travel, liquidity, diversification and retirement?

Want to sell high and buy at your own timing with a new depreciation schedule all tax-deferred?

Want to move your assets outside of your taxable estate and the $11M or $22M exemption is not enough to offset the 40% estate tax?’

Do you have carried interest and want to defer the capital gains tax?

Selling CRE Syndication?

Do you have carried interest and want to defer the capital gains tax?

Do your partners have capital gains tax and depreciation recapture when selling? 

Do some of your partners want to 1031 into the next deal with you and others don’t, need liquidity and still don’t want to pay the capital gains tax? 

Are your partners reluctant for you to sell the deal your partnered on because there are little to no 1031 properties to trade into?

 Want to sell high and buy at your own timing with a new depreciation schedule all tax-deferred?

Want to move your assets outside of your taxable estate and the $11M or $22M exemption is not enough to offset the 40% estate tax?’

“It’s a relief to be rid of the apartment building. It was a very lucrative investment, but it came with a lot of headaches that took up my time and energy.” Peter N. - Sold 18 unit CA Apartment Complex

“I’ve personally found that after being involved in hundreds of real estate transactions, one of the biggest concerns that sellers face when they contemplate divesting of one of their Real Estate investments, is the significant capital gains exposure that might come as a result of the sale. In fact, I’ve seen firsthand many situations where owners of investment property feel somewhat trapped between a rock and a hard place and feel hostage to the outrageous capitals gains that they will pay in the event of a sale And so, in today’s show, we’re going to go into detail on how the Deferred Sales Trust might just be the miracle alternative solution to help you keep more of that wealth in your pocket when entering into a sale of a highly appreciated asset.

Leveraging The Deferred Sales Trust To Defer Capital Gains Tax and Retire from Apartment Management

Meet Peter

CLICK HERE TO MEET PETER: Learn how the deferred sales trust helped a long term Marin, CA Real Estate Broker and Multifamily Owner decide to not to 1031 and instead retire from the toilets, trash and liability. Brett dives in with Peter's experience in this short but insightful interview:

Please explain or expand upon your particular problem you were having before you discovered the Deferred Sales Trust?:

“I was selling an 18-unit apartment building that had a low basis since I had done a 1031 exchange from a well-depreciated property to buy it and would be looking at a 6-figure tax bill.” -Peter

What did the frustration feel like as you tried to solve that problem?:

“I had been in touch with a number of brokers who were offering Delaware Sales Trusts and it was confusing to sort out who the best were to deal with.”


What was different about the Deferred Sales Trust?:
“The fact that the money is out of the real estate market, though having it all in the financial markets is a concern, since the markets seems high and due for a correction.”

Take us to the moment when you realized the Deferred Sales Trust was actually working to solve your problem.:

“Probably when you(Brett) sat down and walked me through it.”

Tell us what life looks like now that your problem is solved or being solved.:

“It’s a relief to be rid of the apartment building. It was a very lucrative investment, but it came with a lot of headaches that took up my time and energy.”


Peter went on to discuss how the deferred sales trust was more attractive to the 1031 since he:

Did not want to start over with a new 1031 property. Wanted to retire from the toilets, trash, management and liability and trade them for time, travel, liquidity, diversification and retirement. He plans to keep the funds invested into a conservative portfolio of liquid investments and then have the funds shifted to CRE deals when the prices make sense.
