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.
