The presentation material included subject matter expertise accumulated during Edwards' 30+ years of administering tax-deferred exchanges. Topics included:
Soon, Congress will propose sweeping tax reform legislation. The new tax policies will have a direct bearing on the heavy equipment industry and play a big role in how equipment dealers operate.
Accruit and PwC will again join the effort as the AED's Preferred Providers of Like-Kind Exhanges to advocate on behalf of AED members for sensible, pro-growth tax policies that benefit American businesses. Accruit CEO, Brent Abrahm, and PwC Tax Partner, Dave Fowler, will spend the three days at the 2017 AED Washington Fly-In meeting with policymakers to discuss the positive impact that 1031 like-kind exchanges have on the U.S. heavy equipment industry.
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.
