    The Treasury Department and IRS issue Final Regulations regarding Like-kind Exchanges of Real Property | site |


    (Information contained in U.S. Internal Revenue Service [IRS] press release: November 23, 2020)

    WASHINGTON – Today the Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service issued final regulations relating to section 1031 like-kind exchanges. These final regulations address the definition of real property under section 1031 and also provide a rule addressing the receipt of personal property that is incidental to real property received in a like-kind exchange. The 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) limited like-kind exchange treatment to exchanges of real property. As of January 1, 2018, exchanges of personal or intangible property such as vehicles, artwork, collectibles, patents, and other intellectual property generally do not qualify for nonrecognition of gain as like-kind exchanges. Also, like-kind exchange treatment applies only to exchange

    National Institutes of Health says Scientists Monitored Brains Replaying Memories in Real Time| site |



    NIH says study suggests our brains use distinct firing patterns to store and replay memories.



    (March 5, 2020) - - Today, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) published the following information:

    In a study of epilepsy patients, researchers at the National Institutes of Health monitored the electrical activity of thousands of individual brain cells, called neurons, as patients took memory tests. They found that the firing patterns of the cells that occurred when patients learned a word pair were replayed fractions of a second before they successfully remembered the pair. The study was part of an NIH Clinical Center trial for patients with drug-resistant epilepsy whose seizures cannot be controlled with drugs. “Memory plays a crucial role in our lives. Just as musical notes are recorded as grooves on a record, it

    (January 24, 2020) - - Today (January 24, 2020), the U.S. Department of Homeland Security published the following information: WASHINGTON, D.C.- The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recently sent letters to the Governors of all states, the District of Columbia, and territories asking them to provide DHS with a monthly update of the number of REAL IDs issued by their jurisdictions.

    (September 27, 2019) - - Today, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System published the following information: The Federal Reserve, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency have adopted a final rule that increases the threshold for residential real estate transactions requiring an appraisal from $250,000 to $400,000.

    Federal Banking Agencies Issue Final Rule to Exempt Commercial Real Estate Transactions of $500,000 or Less from Appraisal Requirements




    Washington, DC - - (April 2, 2018) - - The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency issued a final rule that increases the threshold for commercial real estate transactions requiring an appraisal from $250,000 to $500,000.
