The Importance of Early Preparation in a 1031 Exchange

1031 Exchange Early Preparation

It’s a good general rule of thumb to start prepping your 1031 exchange as early as possible. Unfortunately, many taxpayers don’t make the proper preparations and find themselves in a bind late in the process. In this article, we are going to discuss the importance of early preparation when conducting a 1031 exchange.

It’s Never Too Early to Contact a Qualified Intermediary

We hear from many taxpayers who want to do a 1031 exchange at the zero hour and are unable to avail themselves of the tax-saving benefits of a 1031 exchange because they’re too late.

The earlier you can start preparing for your 1031 exchange, the better off you’ll be. Contact your qualified intermediary before you even sell your relinquished property so you can work together and make sure everything goes according to plan. It’s never too early to call your qualified intermediary.
