1031 EXCHANGE

What is a 1031 Exchange?

In basic terms, a 1031 Exchange is the trade or exchange of one investment asset for another which allows the taxpayer to defer or postpone payment of capital gains taxes (typically due at the time of sale), by reinvesting the proceeds into similar property as part of a qualifying like-kind exchange. Stocks, bonds and notes are specifically excluded from qualifying as part of a 1031 Exchange, but real estate is not.
