Fort Myers, Florida (PRWEB) February 01, 2015
AdvantaIRA Trust is a self-directed IRA administrator that gives clients the option to invest in alternative assets, such as real estate, along with being qualified intermediaries who facilitate 1031 exchanges. The firm is holding a lunch and learn on Tuesday, February 3, 2015, to show attendees different strategies that provide deferment of taxes on real estate investments.
There will be a couple of different tax-saving strategies Advanta IRA provides during the lunch and learn. The first topic is investing in real estate using a self-directed IRA. Most people are not aware that real estate can be held in a retirement account, but the IRS does allow it. Using a retirement plan to invest in real estate has great tax saving benefits, since all income and expenses flow through the account on a tax-free or tax-deferred basis. All types of property qualify to be held in an IRA, including single-family homes, commercial property, lots, multi-family homes, and even trust deeds and tax liens.
Another tax saving strategy Advanta IRA will discuss during the lunch and learn is one that is performed outside of an IRA. A 1031 exchange allows individuals to purchase investment or business-use real estate by exchanging one property for another. According to Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code, it is one of the last great tax shelters. A key advantage is that all capital gains taxes are deferred when performing this transaction.
Using a self-directed IRA or a 1031 exchange are great ways to defer taxes on investment real estate.
“These strategies are both permissible by the IRS, but, a lot of people just don’t realize that they exist,” says Dave Owens, managing partner at AdvantaIRA Trust.
