1031 Exchange

Defer Capital Gains Tax On Reinvestment

The most widely recognized type of 1031 Exchange is utilized for real estate, likely because of the expansive definition of what is considered “like-kind” for Real Estate Exchanges. Under this, any U.S. real estate property held by the client for productive use in a business or trade, or investment can be exchanged for any “like-kind” property, regardless of the grade or quality.

Real Estate Exchange Example

An institutional investor exchanges an apartments complex valued at $24,750,000 with no debt in New Jersey for a $30,000,000 office building in Texas for a tax savings of over $3 million that can be used to purchase substantially more replacement property.

For most 1031 Real Estate Exchanges, the combination of appreciation in value and the depreciation amount is taken over the period of time that was owned by the client results in a taxable gain. Numerous investors like to see what kind of tax saving funds they can benefit from the sale of their investment property.
