The entire landscape was changed by the Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA). TCJA effects real estate in numerous ways including: what qualifies for section 179, changes in like kind exchanges, depreciation and other areas.

Additionally, pass-through entities, including those holding real estate will qualify for some income exemption. The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 made sweep changes to the effects of an IRS audit. It is important to recognize the effect of these changes and what changes should be considered to entity agreements.
