3 Things Everyone Should Know About 1031 Exchanges

Real Estate Exchange

1031 exchanges are a great tax-saving tool, but many taxpayers aren’t aware of the numerous benefits provided by this section of the Internal Revenue Code. In this article, we are going to discuss a few things everyone should know about 1031 exchanges.

Your Property Needs to Be Used for Investment Purposes

To determine if you qualify for 1031 exchange treatment, you need to first make sure that your property fits the use requirement. All property used in a 1031 exchange must be used for investment or business (not personal) purposes.

1031 Exchanges can Only be Used for Real Estate

The Tax Cuts & Jobs Act restricted section 1031 to real estate only. That means items of personal property (artwork, aircraft, etc.) can no longer be used in a like-kind exchange transaction.

You’ve Only Got 180 Days

Once you begin the 1031 exchange process by selling your relinquished property, you only have 180 days to complete your exchange.
