2023 Year-End Tax Planning
Exchanges Over Two Tax Years May Be Treated As An Installment Sale
In a delayed exchange transaction structured to satisfy the requirements of §1031, an exchanger has up to 180 calendar days to acquire like-kind replacement property measured from the day the relinquished property is sold. Once initiated, the delayed exchange may be successfully completed (resulting in complete tax deferral), partially completed (resulting in recognition of some capital gain) or it may fail if no like-kind replacement property is acquired (resulting in the recognition of all capital gain generated by the sale). If the exchange begins in one tax year and extends into the subsequent tax year, the question arises whether the gain realized on the sale is recognized in the year in which the relinquished property was sold or in the subsequent year in which the exchanger received the cash sale proceeds from the qualified intermediary.
In a perfect world, gain would be recognized in the subsequent year when the proceeds were actually received by the exchanger. In many cases, this turns out to be wholly or partially true.

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.
