Why Do a 1031 Exchange of Your Property?

1031 Exchange of Your Property

Many people have heard of 1031 exchanges but aren’t sure why they should consider doing one. In this article, we’re going to talk about why it may be a good idea for you to 1031 exchange your property.

Tax Deferral

A 1031 exchange offers you a potentially huge tax deferral. In a typical 1031 exchange (assuming you meet all the requirements) you are able to defer all of your capital gains taxes on the sale of your property so long as you roll those sales proceeds into a replacement property of equal or greater value. This is a great way to avoid a potentially big tax windfall.

Compounding Interest

Another benefit is that you get to keep your hard-earned money working for you. Instead of writing a check to the government for your capital gains taxes, you get to keep that money compounding and building in your replacement property. In a sense, your money keeps working for you over time, rather than going to a tax payment.
