I can’t take credit for today’s suggestion–I heard it from Tom Alberg at the Northwest Regional Angel Capital Association conference. Tom’s idea is worth advocating for.

Internal Revenue Code Section 1045 allows taxpayers (other than corporations) that have held qualified small business stock for more than 6 months to defer the gain on the sale of such stock if they reinvest the proceeds of the sale in qualified small business stock within 60 days of the sale. (Think of Section 1045 as the equivalent for startups to Section 1031 for real estate.) This is a very beneficial provision, because you have to meet a 5 year holding period to benefit from the Section 1202 exclusion from income.
