TAG Industrial Watch: May 15, 2021

“While President Biden’s tax proposals are far from becoming laws, commercial real estate investors now have clarity on what the future tax environment may look like. After much speculation, the administration confirmed that its proposals include doubling the capital gains tax rate from 20% to 39.6%, capping tax-free gains on 1031 exchanges at $500,000, and eliminating the step-up basis for inherited properties (Commercial Property Executive). While some investors are contemplating selling ahead of any tax changes, others are looking towards Opportunity Zones as an option to reduce tax liability. With over 20% of the land in Opportunity Zones designated for industrial use albeit based on a small sample size (Urban Institute), industrial real estate could get a boost from investors seeking a new tax haven.” -Adam Abushagur
