PORTLAND, Maine — Join the Maine Real Estate & Development Association for breakfast 7:30-9 a.m. Wednesday, April 30, at Clarion Hotel in Portland for a presentation that will address planning opportunities available to real estate professionals to design and build income tax efficient structures for their projects.

The presentation will focus on a few hot topics including capital gains planning, the passive activity rules (including the new 3.8% Medicare surtax), and tax credit partnership structures.

“Tax Dodgeball for Real Estate Professionals” includes a detailed discussion on capital gains planning with attention to carried interest structures and why these structures are frequently targets of new tax legislation. This presentation will outline opportunities to plan around the passive activity rules and avoid the new 3.8% Medicare surtax. In addition, the presenters will offer a fresh look at structuring real estate projects to monetize tax credits in light of the Historic Boardwalk decision and recent Safe Harbor guidance issued by the IRS.
