Background includes 15 years as a commercial contractor constructing buildings and agriculture business facilities in the Midwest. 25 years as a business broker and financial advisor involved in assisting business and property owners to sell, merge or acquire (mergers and acquisitions) and fund (investment banking). Consistently had challenges to transfer ownership and maintain wealth. The end goal challenge generally included an efficient tax and estate plan. Not a CPA but worked with CPAs and tax attorneys to plan. A CPA and attorney are much like a doctor. Unless one can tell them where it hurts they generally volunteer little. What CPAs, tax advisors and attorneys tell us is within the scope of their practice that generally does not work extensively with property transfer tax code. Experience here is with transferring property and keeping our money, i.e. saving tax money within the tax code. A CPA/tax advisor generally knows their client’s tax details. We can be an assistant to tax advisors, real estate professionals and a client to minimize taxes when it is a goal.

Real Estate & Asset Titling   Exit Strategies with Tax Deferral, Deduction & Reduction

When selling/divesting any type assets and properties one has several tax obligation choices.

  1. Pay the tax. Thank you from the IRS and all of us. CPA is recommended.

  2. 1031 tax deferred exchange (as of 2018, real property (real estate) only. We have 30 years of experience with IRC Sections 1031, 1033 and 721 codes. Exchange accommodator/ intermediary is necessary. Any $ amount acceptable to seller. CPA is recommended. www.1031FEC.com

  3. Energy rehab exchange or acquisition (the most advantageous tax code for any property including ordinary income and most unknown) more detail can follow (many codes). Potential 100% immediate deduction of any proceeds. CPA is recommended. www.PayNoTax.biz

  5. Section 453 installment contract sale (for some property one can delay paying capital gains, not always depreciation recapture tax) over a period of time. Any amount acceptable as efficient to parties. Attorney and CPA recommended.

  6. Section 453 monetary contract sale (delays paying capital gains tax for up to 30 years) requiring Special Tax Attorney and third-party transfer expense-all property except with recapture of depreciation. $1M minimum up. CPA is recommended.

  7. Section 453 third party non-profit charitable sale for immediate tax relief with insured deferred proceeds or insured income stream. For all property-assets. Favored for preventing beneficiary conflict. Generally for property-asset holders $100k-$2.5M+/-. CPA is recommended. www.LegacyChange.com

By the end of 2019, over $15 trillion worth of inheritance will pass through the probate courts in America. The #1 asset sold first is the real estate. We inform and can assist for efficient transfer of asset ownership.

Your CPA/Tax Adviser is always recommended for your primary tax consultant.

For one who qualifies with real property real estate we have replacement properties for 1031 tax deferral. Some are rehab commercial property. Some are new 15-20-year absolute leased high-end income properties leased to tenants with positive inflation and recession resistance. This is accomplished by location and type of business.

Rehab (rehabilitated, improved or reworked properties generally have the option or plan to divest within two-three years rolling into another wealth building property. They may or may not have an option for deferred income.

The energy rehab properties are with known management and rework operators. As with any venture recommend new associates have references for experience and integrity. For energy rehab my choice is a CPA firm that has a business end with consulting and actual rehab projects they manage. Former Deloitte CPAs, they have decades experience in oil & gas operations and taxation. This can be the resource for clients and CPAs to advantage the most prolific tax advantages in the US tax code. Their experience includes years of alternatives to be tax efficient.

The energy rehab property minimum entry income properties are $100k and more. The property is producing oil & gas. The goal is to buy low, improve the production and income rolling into another or 1031 out to different qualified property. One receives recorded ownership document allowing divesture when desired with a two-three divest year goal. There can be sheltered income options. Each associate has their personal tax plan and goals. One can build with one’s own tax protected annuity with periodical tax-deductible contributions. Up to $5M or more of acquiring an energy rehab property one potentially deducts 100% of any income, gain, depreciation recapture, investment or ordinary, personal, real estate or business asset proceeds with a 15 year loss carry forward.

We include a non-disclosure confidentiality document for doing business. We are searching for long term integrity associates with common goals.  Look forward to knowing you and your goals.

1LessTax.com – Ken Wheeler Jr. Sample Tax Scenario


Funding of property or asset (BASIS):     $200,000.00


Divest or sell for:                          $300,000.00

Gain or Profit                                $100,000.00

 TAXABLE         $100,000.00

For an energy rehab $100,000.00 is the prime amount to deduct so is the first amount to consider to transfer to the energy rehab property.

One does not have to transfer the complete amount as in a 1031 qualified exchange or other defer/deduct methods.

The energy rehab property is real property so when one divests one can choose any other business property to defer tax with the 1031 rule or refund into another energy rehab property with or without basis, deducting all.

With the right people one can have as an energy property annuity to receive and deduct most income and proceeds from any transaction.
