What is a 1031 exchange? Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code establishes a method for taxpayers to defer their capital gains taxes on the sale of real property as long as several rules are satisfied. First and foremost, you have to take all of your net proceeds on the sale of your property and roll those into a new like-kind property. This is a continuation of your investment that benefits you (by allowing you to defer your taxes) as well as the economy as a whole. Your property needs to be held for use in your trade or business - and not for personal use - so you can't exchange your family home that you consider your principal residence. Exchanged property also needs to be like-kind in order to qualify.

 

Let's take a look at an example of a 1031 exchange of real estate. Imagine you own an apartment building in downtown Duluth that you want to sell. If you sell that property you would normally have to pay capital gains taxes on the sales proceeds. But instead of selling the property and paying those taxes you can exchange into a new property - say a hotel in Canal Park - and roll those net proceeds into that newer property.
