Requirements for Postponement of 1031 Exchange Time Periods

If the IRS releases an official notice, then Section 17 of Revenue Procedure 2007-56 provides extensions of certain time deadlines in a 1031 exchange.

911 for 1031: The 2020 Presidential Election Could be Taxing

‚ÄúLet me talk to you about the 1031,‚ÄĚ I said to a congressional staffer in Washington, D.C. This was during the early days of negotiations on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. The staffer looked at me and blinked. There was a pause. ‚ÄúTen-thirty-one,‚ÄĚ he repeated, somewhat confused. He looked at his wristwatch. Shook his head. ‚ÄúNo, it is much later than that.‚ÄĚ

The comical back and forth conversation is indicative of why we must constantly educate members of Congress and their staffs about why the Internal Revenue Code Section 1031 like-kind-exchanges, has been a part of our tax code for the past 100 years.
