How Do I Avoid Paying Taxes When I Sell My Rental?

How do I avoid paying taxes when I sell my rental property

1031 and Capital Gains Tax Update

Hey there, this is Mike from Mike Buys Houses and this video covers how to avoid capital gains tax when selling investment property. A lot of the chatter going on recently with the changes upcoming to the 1031 and the capital gains taxes. A lot of landlords have been reaching out and asking me about how they can sell their property and avoid some of those tax hits that are coming and potentially looming the longer they hold on to the property with potential changes to the tax code.

So one of the big things that I talked to them about is the potential to sell your property on terms. Now we would definitely recommend first consulting your CPA, but basically it helps to significantly decrease the amount of taxes that you’re going to be hit with every year because your payments are going to be spread out over time. 

And guess what?! You’re going to be collecting interest on those payments.

So it’s a win-win, especially if you were planning on just taking that money from your rental properties that you sold and investing it. What’s better than selling your property on terms, maintaining that ability to make money on your money, and having your money protected by the property that you’ve owned for years? To most, it’s a great option.

That’s why we’re buying a duplex that way in Bucks County Pennsylvania.
