Taxes depend on several factors such as whether the homeowners are single or married, and whether they meet several IRS rules. The first $250,000 of profit is usually tax free for single ($500,000 for married). Several factors may be taken into consideration such as property improvements and expenses. If it is not the property owners primary residence, they might be able to do a 1031 exchange when selling and buying a similar property. #millsact

Mills Act Tax Benefits
It sounds almost too good to be true to get paid to live in an artistic landmark and architectural masterpiece. But it is a fact. Many DTLA homeowners report savings of several thousand dollars per year off of their property taxes thanks to their amazing old building. For helping to maintain the original look and character of the structure, homeowners have been getting up to 2/3 off of annual property taxes.
In addition to the amazing uplifting character of high ceilings and unique details, the Mills Act provides a great financial advantage for buyers and owners of approved historic loft condominium units, some of the most beautiful buildings in Downtown Los Angeles.
