1031 Exchange Information

Due to the rise in home values, you may be facing some hefty tax consequences when you sell your property. Some of these are preventable with a little strategic planning; others may not fit within the IRS Code parameters for taxable exposure. You may want to consider rolling your capital gains from one property into another one as part of your planning.

Lately, I’ve heard “We’re going to just do a 1031 exchange” as a tax-savings approach. It is important to note what it takes to qualify for a 1031 exchange, as well as how to avoid disqualifying yourself because of a mishandling of the funds and/or timelines.

I have outlined some basic guidelines to keep in mind when considering a 1031 exchange. Please note that I am not a tax professional, and for anyone interested in pursuing a 1031 exchange, I cannot overemphasize enough the importance of consulting with a qualified tax professional.

Basic Rules of 1031 Exchanges

·       Only pertains to investment properties.

·       Does not apply to primary residences or vacation homes unless they can qualify as an investment under a very small sliver of exceptions.

·       Property must be exchanged for a “like for like” property, which means another investment property must be purchased, not a primary residence (again, a few exceptions apply).

 

Process

·       Identify a replacement property within 45 days of selling the relinquished property, in writing.

·       Sale must be complete on the replacement property within 180 days after the sale of the relinquished property is completed or the due date of the income tax return.

·       The funds from the relinquished property cannot be touched by the principal. A qualified intermediary or exchange facilitator must handle the exchange of funds.


You may refer to the IRS Fact Sheet for 1031 Exchanges for more information. You should work with a qualified real estate professional who understands the intricacies of these transactions to ensure you are in compliance with timelines and guidelines.
