How It’s Done
The process begins with the exchangor marketing their property and securing a buyer. Once a Purchase and Sale Agreement (PSA) is executed, the responsibility to sell the relinquished property is transferred to a 1031 exchange intermediary. This intermediary then manages the exchange of the relinquished property for the replacement property, adhering to strict timelines set by the IRS.
Qualifying Properties For 1031 Exchanges
Properties eligible for 1031 exchanges must be of “like-kind,” including real estate, commercial properties, or other mineral and royalty rights held for investment. To maximize benefits, the replacement property should be of equal or greater value than the relinquished property.
The 45/180 Day Rule
The IRS enforces a 45-day period for identifying a replacement investment and a total of 180 days for closing on the new investment. These timeframes run concurrently, emphasizing the importance of timely decision-making.
In reverse exchanges, the new property is purchased before selling the old one. This option offers flexibility in taking advantage of market conditions, though the 45/180-day rule still applies.
1031 Exchange Tax Benefits
1031 exchanges are popular for their substantial tax benefits, allowing investors to defer taxes and maximize capital for reinvestment.
Some Of These Benefits Include:
- Put off the taxes that are due on properties that qualify
- Lets investors spread out their holdings without having to pay capital gains taxes
- Makes the most of the money that can be used to invest in other properties, mineral interests, etc.
