Impound Escrow Accounts – Easier for Buyers and Lenders

What is an impound escrow account?

An impound escrow account is set up for a real estate mortgage loan to pay certain property-related expenses such as private mortgage insurance, homeowner’s insurance and property taxes. Frequently, lenders require these impounds to be paid with the borrower’s monthly loan payment. Often, loan regulations require impounds to be set up for a mortgage loan collateralized by a personal residence. Escrow accounts are far from simple as they may be required or restricted by an array of state and federal laws and regulations. Generally, there is a legal instrument that places a lien on the homeowner’s property, such as a deed of trust or mortgage, that requires reserves or impounds for property taxes and insurance.

FEA 2017 Mid-Year Meeting and Hill Visit, February 27 - March 1, 2017

Tax reform is on the horizon, but little is known about what shape that will take or when it will take place. Few of our elected officials have ever run a business, so it is our responsibility to educate them on how tax reform may impact American businesses and the economy as a whole. Like-kind exchanges benefit millions of American investors and businesses every year, encourage business expansion and help keep dollars moving in the U.S. economy.

Is Early Release of Exchange Funds Possible Under 1031 Exchange Rules?

Tax deferral in a proper 1031 exchange is based upon strict adherence to Internal Revenue Code Section 1031 and the Regulations promulgated under that code section. In fact, there is a distinct emphasis of form over substance throughout the Regulations.

Tax Reform: 10 Talking Points in Favor of Preserving Like-Kind Exchanges

Early April is the expected date for committee discussions on a preliminary tax reform bill. Or is it May? Perhaps before the August recess?

That was the comical consensus I received after attending 17 meetings in Washington D.C. last week. Lately, when monitoring the news out of our nation’s capital, we’ve all become a bit skeptical of what defines “good reporting.” The proposed House tax plan labeled A Better Way is reported to have the full support of Republican lawmakers. However, some closed-door conversations with members of Congress last week provided me with an entirely different story.

Changing Tax Laws Create Unique Opportunities

The results of the recent election cycle will have a profound effect on the United States income tax system. With Republican control over both chambers of Congress and the Oval Office, we can expect bold moves in tax reform—bold, but not unexpected. In anticipation of a reform-friendly environment, the House Republicans, prior to the November elections, released an outline for future tax reform. Released on June 24, 2016 and titled, “A Better Way, Our Vision for a Confident America,” the document is the foundation for the Republican’s tax reform efforts. The outline is also referred to as the “House Republican Blueprint” (HRB), and while only 35 pages in length, it seeks to begin a “conversation about how to fix our broken tax code.”
