Is the Deferred Sales Trust Too Good To Be True?

Sellers of highly appreciated assets including owners of real property and businesses are keenly aware of the tax ramifications of selling their assets.  People will choose to sell their businesses or property for many reasons, including health reasons, lifestyle choices, a desire to be free of the time and other commitments required to manage such assets.  Many owners are reluctant to sell their appreciated assets because of the tax burdens they may face, even when doing so is at odds with the goals they desire and could achieve by selling.
