What is a 1031 exchange?

Internal Revenue Code Section 1031 permits the deferral of capital gains and other taxes on the sale of commercial property.


In the most common type of exchange, a Forward Delayed Exchange, property is sold and the proceeds are used to purchase replacement property within certain timeframes. To qualify for a safe harbor tax deferral, proceeds should be held with a Qualified Intermediary between the sale and purchase.
