Against 1031 Exchange Reform
Terry Jensen, ALC Advanced, 2015 Institute President, represented the Institute in DC during the week of March 16 to educate officials on the damaging effects the proposed reform to the 1031 Exchanges would unleash on our economy.
Upon her return from Washington, Jensen shared during the Institute Government Affairs Committee Meeting at the 2015 National Land Conference that most officials are uninformed about how the bill is used in real life situations and its many benefits.
The Institute is in sync with the 1031 Like-Kind Exchange Coalition—informing officials of the detrimental effects of the bill to the economy and the real estate industry. The stronger the voice, the more that understanding and attention will take place. Have a voice here.
