Installment Sales 101

What’s an installment sale? An installment sale occurs when an asset is sold to a trust, individual, business, or entity over a period of time, often 10 years. Installment sales get special tax treatment and can be a good way (when used with life insurance or other assets as collateral) to move highly appreciated land or business assets into a trust, while minimizing taxes.
