Pros & Cons of a 1031 Exchange

 1031 Exchange Pros & Cons

1031 exchanges offer a great vehicle for deferring capital gains taxes – but they’re not for everyone. Just like any other real estate decision, you should carefully weigh the pros and cons to see if a 1031 exchange is the right option for you. In this article, we are going to lay out some of the pros and cons of a 1031 exchange of real estate.

Pro: Tax Deferral

The number one benefit of a 1031 exchange is that it allows you to defer your capital gains taxes when you sell real estate.

Con: You Don’t Get to Keep Your Proceeds

In any 1031 exchange, you need to move your net proceeds into a new (bigger and better) replacement property. That means you do not get to pocket any of the proceeds from the sale. This may be an issue for taxpayers who are in need of liquid assets.

Pro: Greater Investment in the Long-run

Even though you aren’t able to pocket your sales proceeds, the amount of money you save in tax deferral, as well as the money that will compound in your continued investment make for a greater investment in the long-run.

Do I Have Time to Do a 1031 Exchange?

 Time for 1031 Exchange

Many taxpayers who want to do a 1031 exchange wonder if they have enough time or if it’s too late. In this article, we will talk a little bit about the various time constraints of a 1031 exchange so you can determine whether or not you have the time to conduct a 1031 exchange.

Calculating Your Timeline

In a typical 1031 exchange you have 180 days total from the start of your exchange to completion. The first 45 of those days are your identification period. There are some rare exceptions to these rules, but for the vast majority of exchanges you need to stick to these timeframes.

Generally, the earlier you begin the 1031 exchange process the better. If you wait until the last minute to set up the exchange, you may not have enough time. If you are even considering a 1031 exchange, contact a qualified intermediary to discuss your options.

Section 1031 – An Opportunity for Tax Deferral

 1031 Exchange Tax Deferral

Section 1031 is an excellent tool that can be used for tax deferral by any US taxpayer. But many taxpayers aren’t aware of this opportunity. In this article, we are going to highlight how section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code offers an opportunity for tax deferral to all taxpayers.

Deferring Taxes on the Sale of Real Estate

1031 exchanges of like-kind property allow any US taxpayer to defer their capital gains on the sale of real property. The catch is that the exchanging taxpayer has to take all of their net proceeds from the sale and move them into a new replacement property – thus continuing that taxpayers real estate investment.

An Incentive to Invest

The 1031 exchange was created to incentivize real estate investors to continue investing (thus spurring the economy) rather than just selling and taking the sales proceeds. 1031 exchanges are not loopholes or “tricks” as some people believe. They were created by the United States government to increase economic growth by incentivizing real estate investors.

Can You 1031 Exchange Property in Two Different Industries?

 1031 Exchange Industries

1031 exchanges are very versatile and allow you to exchange out of and into different market segments. In this article, we are going to talk about how you can 1031 exchange from one industry into another.

Like-Kind

When it comes to 1031 exchanges, one of the most important rules you need to follow is that all property involved needs to be like-kind. Thankfully, the term “like-kind” in the realm of real estate is very broadly construed. Nearly all qualified real estate is considered like-kind to all other qualified real property. That means you can do a like-kind exchange from a relinquished property in one industry into a replacement property in a completely different industry – so long as you meet all the other requirements.

An Example

Let’s say you own an apartment complex and you are interested in selling that property and getting into another market segment. You could sell your apartment complex in a 1031 transaction, and roll your sales proceeds into a hotel (your replacement property). This showcases the versatility of the 1031 exchange.

Now is the Perfect Time to Learn About 1031 Exchanges

 Learn About 1031 Exchange

The real estate market is hot, and it’s a great time to sell real property, but that can also mean more taxes. In this article, we’re going to talk about why now is the perfect time to learn more about section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Hot Seller’s Market

The real estate market is very hot right now, which is a great thing for sellers whose properties have increased in value. However, there are two sides to every coin. If your property has increased in value and you sell it for a high price, your capital gains taxes on the sale of that property are also going to be high. That means one thing – a bigger tax bill.

Avoiding a Tax Windfall

If you want to avoid a big tax windfall, as I imagine most investors do, a 1031 exchange can help! Using a like-kind exchange, you can defer your capital gains taxes on the sale of real estate. That being said, you are required to meet certain requirements outlined by the IRS in order for your exchange to succeed. You need to complete your exchange within 180 days, your property needs to qualify for 1031 treatment, and you have to exchange into like-kind property.
