Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code allows any United States taxpayer to defer capital gains taxes on the sale of real estate by rolling their net proceeds into a newer replacement property. But there are a number of rules and regulations you need to abide by in order to complete a successful exchange. Interested in learning more?

Maple Grove 1031 Exchanges

In order to avail yourself of the tax-saving benefits of a like-kind exchange, there are several rules you need to follow – as set by the Internal Revenue Code. Listed below are a few of the most important guidelines you need to follow when conducting any 1031 exchange of real property:

  • Qualifying Purpose. Before you embark on a 1031 exchange, you need to make sure your property qualifies for like-kind exchange treatment. All 1031 property must be held for investment or business purposes (property held for personal use is not allowed).

  • Like-Kind. Additionally, your relinquished property and your replacement property both need to be like-kind in nature.

  • Debt, Value, Equity. You also need to keep an eye on your debt, value, and equity ratios. A basic rule of thumb is that your replacement property needs to be greater than your relinquished property in these three areas.

These are the most important – but certainly not the only rules you need to know in a 1031 exchange. For more detailed information, contact a qualified intermediary to discuss the nitty gritty of your like-kind exchange.
