Has 1031 Been Saved (For Real Estate)?
On Nov. 16, the House of Representatives passed HR-1 the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.” Now the legislation moves on to the Senate for its debate, markup and passage. Whether it passes the Senate and winds up on the President’s desk in its current form, or at all, is currently up for debate. Much has been made of the proposed changes to the deductions available to ordinary taxpayers, changes in the tax brackets and the lowering of the corporate tax rate. Any one of those changes could have significant impact on the average person, good or bad, depending upon how you see the world.
