At Accruit, we've been working for some time on fostering a strategic relationship that will provide all of our
1031 exchange program clients with access to a bundled
like-kind exchange (LKE) service solution that will improve efficiency and service, and the news is now official:
I'm pleased to announce that Accruit has agreed to enter a joint business relationship (JBR) with PricewaterhouseCoopers Like-Kind Exchange Services (PwC).*
This is truly great news for all of us, and I'd like to begin by explaining what it means for everyone, and in particular, what it means for your business.
The Federation of Exchange Accommodators (FEA) has received confirmation that the New Hampshire Governor John Lynch has signed SB 483 into law. According to the FEA:
The new law amends prior law, which deprived taxpayers of Section 1031 tax deferral on a state level if they purchased replacement property in the name of a new entity, notwithstanding that the acquiring entity was a disregarded entity. The typical situation would be that in which a taxpayer was required by a lender or TIC sponsor to acquire a replacement property in the name of a new single member LLC. The State of New Hampshire began disallowing exchange treatment on those transactions in 2008 and began to audit previously closed transactions as far back as 2004, without notice either to taxpayers or to the professionals in the industry.
All of us here at Accruit are used to it. A friend, family member, acquaintance or somebody we just met at a party says "what does your company do?" The truth is that not a lot of people know much, if anything, about 1031 like-kind exchanges (LKEs), and it's not always the easiest thing to explain. The more they know about finance and tax issues, the easier it is, but even then it can be tricky communicating the code in a way that's readily understood.
Exchangers frequently inquire about when they may receive all, or part of their exchange proceeds back. It is a question I have been asked countless times, and in certain circumstances giving the right answer can be difficult. We're talking, after all, about the proceeds from the
exchanger's sale, and sometimes the need for their return is pressing. Regardless of the need, though, there are very rigid regulations regarding when qualified intermediaries (QIs) can release a client's exchange proceeds. Those same regulations make no provision for how badly those funds may be needed for purposes outside a properly structured
like-kind exchange (LKE).
