The November Election and the Tax Legislative Outlook for Real Estate

Course Description:
CJ Aberin and our special guest speaker and Washington insider, Ryan McCormick, will discuss potential consequences of the upcoming election for tax policies affecting U.S. real estate. What are the major real estate tax proposals from President Trump and Joe Biden, and which real estate tax issues will be front and center in the next Congress? How might different electoral outcomes in the Presidential and Congressional races impact tax policy and lead to changes in the taxation of real estate development, investment, ownership, management, and operation? What are the implications for local communities and the broader economy, and how is the real estate industry, and The Real Estate Roundtable in particular, engaging policymakers on the key issues?

Key Topics:
• Individual tax rates
• Capital gains
• Pass-through business income
• Real estate provisions (1031 exchanges, cost recovery, loss deductions)
• Stepped-up basis
• Carried interest
• Corporate tax rates
• Payroll taxes
• Housing
• Energy efficiency tax incentives

• Understanding of how the November election could shape future tax legislation and implications for real estate ownership and investment
