A Simple Definition of Section 1031 Like-Kind Exchange

Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) allows an Exchanger (a U.S. Taxpayer) to defer normal income and capital gain taxes otherwise due on the sale of one or more properties (assets) when reinvesting in one or more like-kind properties.

Primary benefits of a 1031 Exchange

  • Borrow less, reinvest more! Improve cash flow and build wealth faster by keeping proceeds that would otherwise be due in taxes working for you or your organization.
  • Protect and add value to your estate.
  • If taxes eventually become due because you sell and do not complete another Exchange, you pay the deferred tax in future dollars that are worth less than today’s dollars (inflation effect).

By successfully following IRC Section 1031 rules, a taxable event resulting from a sale does not occur and gain is deferred rather than realized.

More Money For You… Less For The IRS
For decades, real estate investors have utilized 1031 Exchanges to trade up to more expensive or lucrative properties while deferring capital gain, normal income taxes and depreciation recapture. In recent years many individuals and business owners / decision makers in a wide variety of industries including real estate management/investment, construction, oil & gas, manufacturing and farming/agriculture, among others, have begun to put Section 1031 Exchanges to work for the betterment of their financial well being.
