We strive to help our customers understand a particularly effective tax deferral strategy that reinvests the sales proceeds in a 1042 qualified replacement property (QRP). Under IRS rules, sales proceeds from an ESOP transaction can be reinvested in a QRP to defer capitals gains tax until the positions are sold or upon death, when the heirs receive a stepped-up cost basis.
