    Sales by a QOF of QOZP prior to the ten-year mark come with regular tax consequences, so you will need to use a deferral technique to avoid recognition of taxable income. These techniques include Section 1031 and Section 1045 exchanges. You will need to consult tax counsel to structure one of these.
