The Case Study of a 1031 DST Specialist

here are various strate- gies when using DSTs (Delaware Statutory Trusts) in a 1031 exchange. Some investments are as easy as a simple exchange from one property into a single DST. Other times DST’s are used to invest leftover equity from an exchange so the investor is not taxed on leftover funds, called “boot”. Investors will routinely use DSTs as a backup ID in case their target replacement property doesn’t work out. And occasionally, Kay Properties will assist an exchanger to uti- lize all said strategies in one sophisticated effort to mitigate risk and defer as much tax as possible. Read on for the expe- rience of a highly skilled 1031 DST specialist. A real estate investor sold an investment property for approximately $2M. Roughly 25% of his property was lever- aged. Therefore, $1.5M was sitting in his qualified inter - mediary account. He then contacted Kay Properties to

pursue a partial 1031 DST ex- change. The exchanger wanted to purchase a property on his own, but something smaller and easier to manage than the property he recently sold. He wanted to put part of his exchange into a completely passive DST option that would require no management on his part. The DST part was rela- tively easy. However, he was having a hard time finding a replacement property to own outright, and the 45-day clock was ticking. Kay Properties created a multifaceted strat- egy that supported the inves- tor from a variety of angles. First, the exchanger used the debt built into the DST

to replace his mortgage. The Kay Properties representative created a DST portfolio for the investor with a loan-to- value of approximately 50% to match the exact debt required to satisfy the 1031 exchange regulation. The debt was non- recourse, meaning the investor did not need to apply or sign for the loan, nor did it show up on his personal balance sheet. This freed him up to purchase a smaller property to own outright without taking out a mortgage, which increased his probability of closing. Next, the exchanger used a DST as a backup ID in case the target property did not work continued on page 16A

The five-year Pacific Life Insurance loan included full-term interest- only, a 30-year amortization schedule and a 2.66 percent interest rate. “This deal was challenging on so many fronts as uncer- tainty from the pandemic kept delaying our ability to arrange the financing and as lend- ers were extremely selective when contemplating student

housing deals,” said Richards. “Fortunately, we had an ex- tremely strong experienced buyer in Reliant CAP IX Fund that already owned a student community at VA Tech.

PATERSON, NJ — BAW Development has closed on the $94million financing for the redevelopment of the Hinchliffe Stadium Neighborhood Res- toration Project (HSNRP), in Paterson, which includes Hinchliffe Stadium, one of just two remaining stadium struc- tures that was home to a Negro League baseball team.

The Passaic County Improvement Authority also issued a bond in support of the project, purchased by Goldman Sachs through its construc- tion loan, which serves as a bridge loan for the New Jersey Economic Redevelopment and Growth (ERG) credits. All financing was managed by BAW’s partner on the re- development, RPM Develop- ment Group . “When it comes to a project of this nature, there’s no question

that it takes a strong team to put all the pieces in place, and we are extremely thankful for the diverse group of financial partners that came together to fund the reimagination of this historic site,” said Baye Adofo-Wilson , founder of BAW Development. “Given the challenges of the last year, pushing this long-awaited infrastructure project forward required a highly complex, creative financing structure from all parties.

By Bruce A. Johnson, MBA, CRE, Capstan Tax Strategies Multifamily Matters: The #1 Property Type Continues to Hold Strong


Cost Segregation report can be used to produce and support disposition tables. ▪ In December of 2019, Proj - ect ABC (above) underwent a renovation with an associated depreciable basis of $3M. The same Capstan engineer re- turned to the property to docu- ment the discarded assets. He was also able to move 32% of the new assets into 5-year. Between both strategies the first-year tax savings on the renovation was $325,000. • Energy-efficient tax in - centives are in play for multi- family properties. The EPAct 179D deduction is a great op- tion for multifamily facilities that are 4 or more stories high, and the deduction is psf -- up to $1.80/s/f -- so the bigger the better. The 45L tax credit is extremely popular right now, and condos, townhouses, and apartment buildings that are a maximum of three sto- ries high are all solid candi- dates. The federal tax credit is $2,000 per unit, so the savings can really multiply. ▪ Example: A large multi - family property was placed- in-service on the east coast in 2020. The total square footage was 85,000, and the property was eligible for the maximum EPAct 179D deduction of $1.80/SF. The total deduction benefit was $153,000, result - ing in an actual tax savings of $61,200, on top of tax savings from accelerated depreciation and other strategies. ▪ Example: A 90-unit gar - den-style property was newly constructed. Each unit met the eligibility criteria for a 45L tax credit. At $2,000 per unit, the total tax credit was $180,000. The key to maximizing tax savings on your multifam- ily property is a quality cost segregation study. The study will allow you to leverage a combination of strategies old and new, increasing cash flow, reducing tax liability, and teeing you up for better days ahead. Bruce A. Johnson, MBA, CRE, is a co-founder and partner at Capstan Tax Strategies.

in September of 2018. The total depreciable basis was $37,445,200. Capstan engi- neers were able to move 18.7% of assets into 5-year personal property, and another 7% of assets into 15-year land improvements, resulting in a first-year tax savings of $3,142,872. • The CARES Act from March 2020 temporarily re- moved two unfavorable loss limitations that many real es- tate investors would encoun- ter: the 80% net operating loss limitation and the $500K

overall loss limitation. • The Tangible Property Regulations (TPRs) are still very much in play, augment- ing the utility of the newer leg- islation. The TPRs guide the taxpayer in making expense and capitalization decisions, to ensure that all possible assets are capitalized. • Partial Asset Dispositions are very useful in a renovation scenario, as the remaining de- preciable basis of the discard- ed assets may be immediately written off in the current year. Data generated by a Capstan

have brought depreciation deductions to an all-time high, and this continues to drive interest in multifamily, par- ticularly at a time when cash flow is all-important. Here are just some of the factors making multifamily properties of interest: • The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) brought 100% bonus depreciation through the end of 2022 and made acquired assets eligible for said bonus. ▪ Property ABC, a garden apartment complex, was ac- quired and placed-in-service
