Protect your balance sheet from a 15-27% reduction due to Capital Gains Taxes

What is The 1031 Stretchout℠?

The 1031 Stretchout lets you defer some or all of your capital gains on the sale of an asset by making us your resellers. It converts appreciated capital transactions, including most non-qualified properties, into deferred sales.

1. Invest in any asset class with 100% of the asset value sold instead of the after-tax amount

2. Protect your balance sheet from 15 to 27% reduction when you sell your biggest assets

3. Protect you passive income options, your spouse and loved ones, and your legacy from immediate loss and from future market reversals because the 1031 Stretchout℠ gives you more leverage

4. Defer and reduce taxes cause by downside risk; indefinitely defer taxes for upside risk

5. Transform your capital transaction taxes into consumption taxes, since you only pay when you take income from your deferral

6. Reduce your estate and gift taxes by 50% or eliminate them altogether

7. Combine the 1031 Stretchout℠ and the Legacy Protector℠ to enhance and strengthen your legacy and have a more reliable path to ensure your assets won’t hurt your loved ones.

All of these benefits are typically paid from about 10% of your tax savings, with no money required out of pocket.
