A Section1031 Exchange offers you, as an investment property owner, the opportunity to purchase replacement property and defer the federal and state capital gains taxes due as a result of the transaction. IRS Code Section 1031 requires that you sell your current investment property and purchase a similar (“like kind”) property(s) through a qualified intermediary to take advantage of this tax deferment. There are other, more exotic, investment property tax deferment sections in the tax code, but Section 1031 is the most widely used and understood.
Any real property held for investment or used for business purposes may be exchanged. These include, but are not limited to, rental property, apartments, industrial property, office buildings, and unimproved land held for investment.
