1031 Exchange Considerations for Farmers

1031 Exchange Farmers

Farmers can benefit greatly from 1031 exchanges of land. However, there are many important things to keep in mind if you are a farmer considering an exchange. In this article, we are going to discuss a few important considerations for farmers looking to exchange their property in a 1031 transaction.

Personal Property Not Allowed

The biggest change in the 1031 exchange realm this year is that personal property is no longer eligible for 1031 exchange treatment. This is a result of the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act that went into effect in early 2018. Thankfully, this act preserved like-kind exchanges of real estate, but it effectively axed exchanges of personal property. That means any items of personal property you own and use for investment or business purposes cannot be exchanged in a 1031 transaction. Here are a few personal property items that cannot be exchanged:

  • Livestock

  • Agricultural Equipment

  • Tractors
