3 Things to Remember When Identifying 1031 Replacement Property

Identify 1031 Replacement Property

There are many things to keep in mind when identifying your 1031 replacement property. In this article, we are going to discuss three important things to remember when identifying replacement property in your 1031 exchange.

Identification Deadline

First, it’s important to remember your deadlines and time periods for the exchange. You have 180 days to complete your exchange, beginning the day after you sell your relinquished property. The first 45 days of that period is your identification period. You have to identify in writing all of your intended replacement properties by this deadline.

3 Property & 200 Rules

In most 1031 exchanges, the exchangor can identify up to three replacement properties. If he or she wants to identify more than three properties, the exchangor can use the 200% rule. Using this rule, the taxpayer can identify any number of replacement properties so long as the total fair market value of those replacement properties in no greater than 200% of the relinquished property.

Acquiring Property in the Identification Period

If you actually acquire any of your replacement properties in the midst of your 45 day exchange period, those properties are deemed to have been identified.
