5 Types of 1031 Tax Deferred Exchanges
If you own property that is not your primary residence and are thinking of selling but don’t want to incur capital gains taxes, there may be a way to defer the taxes on the gains called a 1031 tax deferred exchange. * Each type of Exchange involves special rules and requirements promulgated from the IRS. An experienced Intermediary should be employed to facilitate such transactions to assure proper handling and tax deferralby the IRS. Remember, all 1031 Tax-Deferred Exchanges must be set up prior to the close of escrow. Please consult with your professional administrator at a Exchange Accomodater to discuss the details of your Exchange.
There are five types of 1031 tax deferred exchanges which are:
When both relinquished and replacement properties close escrow the same day.*
Delayed 1031 Exchange
After the relinquished has closed escrow, the replacement property must be identified within the first 45 days, and purchased within 180 days.
Allows the purchase of the replacement property before the selling of the relinquished property. The relinquished property must be identified within 45 days after escrow has closed on the purchase property, and must close escrow no later than 180 days.*
Build to Suit
Allows the taxpayer to construct improvements on the replacement property during the course ofthe exchange.*
An Exchange involving personal property,(e.g. airplane for an airplane, boat for a boat or a restaurant business for a restaurant business), to be used for investment or the productive use in a trade or business.*
