Judge Learned Hand said that there is nothing wrong with arranging your affairs to keep your taxes as low as possible, since no one has a duty to pay more than the law demands. I can show you how to use a §1031 (“Starker”) Exchange to defer capital gains taxes and keep more of your money in your pocket.
Since 1994 I have acted as a Qualified Intermediary, helping clients defer taxes and build wealth through a §1031 tax-deferred (Starker) exchange. Currently, I manage the Chicago area office of First American Exchange Company, covering Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana. I also serve as Exchange Counsel, and am a frequent lecturer on §1031 exchanges.
I served two terms as President of the Federation of Exchange Accommodators (FEA), the national trade association for the exchange industry, and currently serve on the Governmental Affairs Committee. I also served on the FEA Board of Directors for eight years. I hold the designation of Certified Exchange Specialist®. In 2009 I received the “Margo McDonnell Certified Exchange Specialist® Perpetual Award” in recognition of my service to the 1031 exchange industry.
