More than any other investment area, real estate will be radically affected by the Tax Reform Act of 1986. This dramatic new bill will effect property values, rents, cash flows, and rates of return on most real estate investments. In straightforward English, this book reviews the general effects of tax reform on real estate syndications, REITS, home mortgages, home office deductions, leasehold improvements, rehabilitation credit, low-income housing, and more. Chapters show how to evaluate present and future investments with respect to capital gains and losses, passive loss limitations, depreciation write-offs, alternative minimum tax, and other tax traps and opportunities. Complete with easy-to-understand, worked-out examples under both the old laws and the new ones.
