About 1031 Tax-Free Exchanges

When one of our clients' needs is delaying tax liability, a like-kind exchange is a good option. This method is included in Section 1031 of the federal tax code. Generally, Section 1031 states that — if you exchange a piece of business or investment property for another piece of business or investment property of a "like-kind" — you will not immediately pay tax on the gain.

Properties are of a like kind if they are of the same nature or character, even if they are of different quality. The concept applies to real estate, airplanes, boats and other large capital assets. Real properties (real estate) are generally of a like kind, regardless of whether or not the properties have been improved.
