Next General Meeting Monday June 20, 2016 (Venue Change for June Only)

 1031 Exchanges…How to Deffer Capital Gains Taxes From the Sale of Real Estate by Purchasing Another Like-Kind Property

For our June General meeting, we’ll be featuring Amy Walsh who will be traveling here from North Carolina to discuss the benefits of 1031 Exchanges and who can use this long-time IRS rule to deffer capital gains taxes you may be faced with.

This strategy has been around for a long time and every investor needs to know how and when to use it. You do’t have to use it often to benefit…the savings you gain and the additional re-investment capital you save can be very substantial.

Join us on Monday, June 20 for an in depth discussion on this topic as well as any new regulatory changes that may affect eligibility.


Due to hotel scheduling conflict, the June meeting only will be held at Hilton Greenville 45 W Orchard Park
