  • What is a deferred sales trust?
    A deferred sales trust is a tax-deferral strategy used by high net worth individuals who wish to sell appreciated assets, such as real estate, without incurring capital gains tax at the time of sale.
  • How does a deferred sales trust work?
    The process involves the creation of a trust and the transfer of the asset to the trust in exchange for a promissory note. The note pays the seller interest over a set number of years and the buyer pays the trust directly for the asset over the same period. By structuring the sale in this way, the seller can defer the capital gains tax and spread it out over the term of the promissory note, potentially reducing their tax burden.
  • What are the benefits of a deferred sales trust?
    A deferred sales trust can provide tax deferral, flexibility and control over the timing and use of the funds, as well as potential tax savings. It can be particularly useful when the seller wants to avoid a large tax liability that would result from a traditional sale, wants to diversify their investments, or is not in immediate need of the proceeds from the sale.
  • What types of assets can be transferred to a deferred sales trust?
    A deferred sales trust can be used for various types of appreciated assets, such as real estate, businesses, and securities.
  • Are there any risks associated with a deferred sales trust?
    As with any financial strategy, there are potential risks and downsides to consider, such as the need to comply with specific legal and regulatory requirements, the potential for changes in tax laws, and the possibility of lower returns or default on the promissory note. It's important to work with a qualified professional, such as a tax attorney or a financial advisor, to assess the risks and benefits and determine if a deferred sales trust is right for you.
  • How can I set up a deferred sales trust?
    The process of setting up a deferred sales trust can be complex and requires the assistance of a qualified professional. It typically involves the drafting of legal documents, the creation of a trust, and the transfer of the asset. Working with an experienced tax attorney or a financial advisor can help ensure that the trust is structured properly and meets your goals and needs.
