How To Defer Capital Gains Tax With The Deferred Sales Trust

Our guest today has a deferment strategy when it comes to capital gains tax. He quips hundreds of business professionals with the Deferred Sales Trust tool to help his high net worth clients solve capital gains tax deferral limitations.

Brett Swarts—CEO of Capital Gains Tax Solutions, is here to tell us how the Deferred Sales Trust works. His experience includes numerous deferred sales trusts, Delaware’s statutory trusts, 1031 exchanges and $85 million in closed commercial real estate brokerage transactions.

We insert this trust right before the close of escrow, which gives so many more benefits than traditional installment sale and solves so many more challenges that people are faced with when they’re looking at 1031 exchange.”

Join us as we discuss in detail: 

  • The benefits of a Deferred Sales Trust 
  • Buying real estate through the trust versus a 1031 exchange
  • Who this is for and who it is not for

And, how do we know if it’s legal?
