Discover the Best Tax Strategy for Real Estate Investment

A 1031 Exchange or a Reverse Exchange are two of the most powerful tax deferral strategies remaining available for taxpayers.

Thanks to IRC Section 1031, a properly structured 1031 exchange allows an investor to sell a property, to reinvest the proceeds in a new property and to defer all capital gain taxes.

A sale and a reinvestment in a replacement property are converted into an exchange by means of an exchange agreement and the services of a qualified intermediary-such as Land Exchange Corporation-to ensure that the exchange is structured properly.

An Estate-Building Technique

The advantage of a 1031 exchange is the ability of a taxpayer to sell income, investment or business property and replace with like-kind replacement property without having to pay federal income taxes on the transaction.

  • Exchanging is a creative method for marketing property.
  • A 1031 exchange allows for consolidation of investments by exchanging several properties for one equal to their combined value.
  • Exchanging allows for increased allowable depreciation recovery with acquiring property with a better than land-to-building ratio, a shorter useful life, etc.
  • Exchanging is an estate-building technique since, under current law, this tax liability is forgiven upon the death of the taxpayer, which means that the taxpayer's estate never has to repay the IRS.

Before deciding whether or not to engage in an exchange, you should carefully analyze all of your options. Land Exchange Corporation is ready to help.
