“If they plan to reinvest the money into a property within a year, they should also keep the funds liquid and invested more conservatively,” she says.

Ms. Wong says business owners may consider shifting some assets into corporate-owned life insurance policies. These policies can offer tax sheltering for assets and provide the corporation with tax-free distributions.

“This was a terrific strategy before the new rules and is now even more compelling under the new rules,” Ms. Wong says
