A 1031 Exchange is named after Section 1031 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. This tax law allows an owner of real property to avoid paying capital gains taxes when they sell the property and then reinvest the proceeds from the sale into another property or properties of similar value. The Law Offices of Lee R. Lederman helps savvy investors use this tax law to defer capital gains and minimize their tax burden.
While 1031 Exchanges can provide great tax benefits, there are very complex rules surrounding these transactions. The IRS limits their use with vacation properties. There are also special rules aboutthe depreciated property. Additionally, the exchange must be made with like-kind property and certain timeframes must be honored to take full advantage of the tax advantages.
