DFPG’s CEO, Mike Bendix, will be partnering again with the Institute of Portfolio Alternatives (IPA) as a member of their IPA Seal Team during this year’s IPA Week in Washington.  Bendix has worked in this capacity for many years on behalf of IPA, ADISA, and other industry associations. This year’s priority topic is Tax Policy: 1031 Like-Kind Exchanges, FIRPTA Parity, and Opportunity Zones. Along with his Seal Team colleagues, Bendix will meet with Senator Mike Crapo (R-ID), Senator Tom Carper (D-DE), Congresswoman Suzan DelBene (D-WA), and Congressman Kevin Brady (R-TX).

According to IPA, the purpose of the Seal Team is “Comprised of the leading tax experts and practitioners in the IPA membership, our [Seal Team] will discuss our priority tax issues including 1031 preservation, FIRPTA parity for non-traded REITS, and opportunity zones. They will meet with other tax experts on Capitol Hill from the House Ways and Means Committee and the Senate Finance Committee.”

Due to the pandemic, this year’s event will be held online.
