Bob Alexandar Webinar
Please join this month's Bob Alexandar Webinar sponsor, American Wealth Management for lunch and the webinar featuring Jerome M. Hesch, MBA, JD, AEP (distinguished) as he speaks on Negative Basis Partnership Freeze
When real estate is encumbered by mortgage liabilities in excess of its income tax basis, a lifetime transfer, either by sale or by gift, causes the taxpayer to report phantom income. This intermediate webinar will first evaluate how to eliminate the phantom gain at death and still implement an estate tax freeze using the preferred partnership structure. The second part will examine how one can defer the reporting of the phantom gain if a lifetime sale of the negative basis real estate is contemplated. The income tax deferral will become even more important if there is no estate tax and no income tax-free step-up in basis at death. It is recommended that participants have an understanding of the income tax issues that arise when an asset subject to liabilities is either sold or disposed of by a lifetime gift.
