- On Friday, July 31, the IRS issued proposed regulations to the three-year carried interest rule (Code Section 1061) affirming that the rule does not apply to gains from the sale of most rental real estate investments that qualify as Code Section 1231 property, which is “trade or business” property. In the case of real estate, Code 1231 property generally includes most real estate held for rent, with the notable exceptions of ground leases and single tenant triple net leased property where the landlord does not provide any services. The proposed regulations and their implications are explained in more detail here. Authored by Michael Tuchman
