If you are not going to take advantage of a 1031 exchange then the only real way to decrease your capital gains tax is to make sure you research and include all capital improvements etc. in your basis. The higher your basis the lower your gain.

There is no better way than to complete a 1031 tax deferred exchange.

Christina: You indicate that you are selling and buying another investment property. Why wouldn't you want to use the tax laws to take advantage of the 1031 exchange, which allows you to defer all capital gains as long as you follow the guidelines? Is there something about the 1031 exchange that you are not comfortable with?
