Important Information for Investors Beginning an Exchange

From October 17 – December 31, 2023

If your 1031 exchange is not complete by the due date for your tax return, you may need to file for an extension.

The time frame you have to complete the acquisition of your replacement property ends at midnight on the earlier of the 180th day after the date you transferred the relinquished property OR the due date (including extensions) for your income tax return for the taxable year in which the transfer of the relinquished property occurs. (U.S. Treasury Regulations section 1.1031(k)-1(b)(2)).

This means, that if the 180th day following the closing of your first relinquished property falls after the due date for your 2023 tax return (for example, for many individuals, April 15, 2024) you must file an application for an extension of time with the IRS to extend the due date in order to have all 180 days to acquire the replacement property. If you do not file for an extension, you will NOT be able to acquire any replacement property in your exchange after your tax return due date. Taxpayers may have different tax return due dates.

If you have any questions, please contact your tax advisor.

🔮Improving Relinquished Property Before a Sale🔮

It is common for a taxpayer to make repairs, updates, and improvements to enhance a relinquished property in preparation for listing with a real estate agent or broker. A commonly asked question is, “Can I be reimbursed from the 1031 exchange for the costs associated with improving or repairing the property immediately before the sale?” The answer is no, not without generating a tax consequence. The reason for this is that any exchange proceeds a taxpayer receives from a 1031 exchange are considered “boot” and are generally taxable to the extent the taxpayer has a capital gain tax consequence.

💀We Love Our Happy Customers to Death!💀

Job well done!! It was a pleasure working with you on the 1031 Exchange. You made it so easy and effortless. Thank you again for taking care of my clients and making it all come together. I appreciate it. I look forward to the next one.
