A new year brings new possibilities. If you’re thinking about selling a piece of real estate in 2019, you may want to consider a 1031 exchange instead of an outright sale. Doing so could save you a lot of money in taxes. This article will act as a brief guide to 1031 exchanges in 2019.
Remember the New Rules
2018 brought some significant changes to 1031 exchanges, as the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act went into effect. These new rules will remain in effect in 2019 so it’s important to keep them in mind. Most importantly, remember that you can only do 1031 exchanges of real property – personal property is no longer eligible for 1031 treatment.
Give Yourself Plenty of Lead Time
1031 exchanges can get very complicated very quickly. With so many moving parts and so much that can potentially go awry, it’s a good idea to give yourself as much lead time as possible. That means reaching out to a qualified intermediary before you sell your relinquished property. The earlier you start planning, the better.
