Item description for Tax-Free Swaps: Using Section 1031 Like-Kind Exchanges to Preserve Investment Net Worth (Nuts & Bolts series) (Nuts & Bolts series) by Bradley T. Borden...
A goal of most property owners is to preserve the value of their investments. Many property owners who dispose of one piece of property and acquire a similar piece of property can help accomplish that goal by doing a tax-free swap (also referred to as a tax-free exchange) under section 1031. Although many property owners and their advisors have heard of section 1031, many of them may be unaware of the requirements and scope of section 1031. This book details the potential benefits, requirements, and scope of section 1031. Using practical examples, the book demonstrates how taxes paid on the disposition of property can erode a property owner s net worth. It also demonstrates how doing a section 1031 exchange can help prevent that erosion. The book explains that direct swaps qualify for section 1031 tax-free treatment, and describes that section 1031 also covers, multi-party exchanges, deferred exchanges, reverse exchanges, and improvements exchanges. This book directs the reader through each of those exchange structures with real-world examples of typical exchange situations and diagrams the various exchange structures. The book also discusses related-party exchanges, exchanges of mixed-use property (i.e., property held for both business and personal use), and factors that may affect an investor s decision to acquire a TIC interest as replacement property. As an extensive, accessible coverage of section 1031, Professor Borden s book will benefit - property investors - real estate professionals - CPAs - attorneys - exchange consultants - investment advisors - business, finance, real estate, accounting, and law students

Reviews - What do customers think about Tax-Free Swaps: Using Section 1031 Like-Kind Exchanges to Preserve Investment Net Worth (Nuts & Bolts series) (Nuts & Bolts series)?
Fantastic "Example-Driven" Guide to Like-Kind Exchanges!!! Aug 27, 2008
So many books in the area of taxation simply restate the Internal Revenue Code. The same books create confusion and leave it to the reader to interpret how the Code is applied to real situations. "Tax-Free Swaps" is easy to follow and does not leave the reader confused. The author uses examples of how like-kind exchanges affect people in the real world. The examples really make this book easy to understand. If you are unfamiliar with 1031 exchanges, this book does a great job by explaining the extremely difficult concepts from the beginning. If you are familiar with 1031 exchanges, this book is still a useful reference to a complicated area of the law.
Phenomenal Resource Aug 8, 2008
Brad's book takes a highly technical tax subject and makes it easily understood by average people as well as those of us who have handled 1031 exchanges for years. As a tax attorney, CPA and owner of All States 1031 Exchange Facilitator, LLC, a qualified intermediary for 1031 exchanges, I have read more than my fair share of books, treatises and articles on 1031 exchanges. Brad uses a folksy, conversational way to help the reader. The examples are extremely illustrative and easy to understand. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more about 1031 exchanges. This book is now mandatory reading for my employees as they study for the Certified Exchange Specialist (CES) exam.
Readable - Informative - Enjoyable - Interesting. a most valuable and exceptionally well organized work.
I have been involved with 1031 exchanges for over 43 years and this is the first work that treats the subject in the proper manner it deserves.. It is most accessible for the reader who needs to and should be informed about this often mis-characterized section 1031 of the IRS code. I just wish more of my clients would read it. It is certainly a must read for every Realtor, CPA, attorney and Qualified Intermediary wanting to explain 1031exchanges to their clients. Thell M. Woods CES SRS,, Certified Exchange Specialist and Specialist in Real Estate Securities.

TAX FREE SWAPS UNDERSTOOD Mar 5, 2008
Tax-Free Swaps: Using Section 1031 Like-Kind Exchanges to Preserve Investment Net Worth (Nuts & Bolts series) (Nuts & Bolts series)
TAX FREE SWAPS This is the book to add to your library whether you're a property owner or practitioner.
"Tax free Swaps" by Bradley T. Borden is, first, well written: the highly technical tax language of 1031 exchanges is made understandable. The tax consequences 1031 exchanges are presented in logical order, from the history of tax deferred exchanges to current practices. Between the table of contents and the index, it's easy to find a topic of interest. The coupe de grace is Mr. Borden's use of "conversations" with clients to illustrate the concepts. I've used/tried many sources to research Tax Free Swaps and Mr. Borden brings it all together in these 290 pages. Appendix D, Additional Section 1031 Resources, alone is worth the price of the book.
