Beware

Starting in 2013, there are going to be some tax changes regarding the sale of real estate and other appreciated assets.

We know about capital gains taxes, state taxes and depreciation recapture but there’s another possible tax that most are overlooking and that’s the Alternative Minimum Tax!

In the words of my CPA..stay as far away from the AMT as you can. When selling an asset with a nice capital gain, talk to your CPA first to understand how the AMT may affect the sale.

One option may be a Deferred Sales Trust!

Best wishes for a profitable 2013.
