The best thing about an LKE Program is that it is not dependent on the whims of legislators. A like-kind exchange is commonly referred to as the ultimate stimulus provision. There's no need to write letters to Congress every year urging them to extend section 1031. It's simply a part of the tax code and has been for almost 90 years.
The benefit of the 2008 and 2009 bonus depreciation does not have to stop if the government fails to extend it for another year. An LKE Program implemented by an experienced and knowledgeable tax professional allows companies to continue to enjoy the increased cash flow.
