Do You Have a Property Closing in December?

Many investors and their advisors have real estate transactions closing near the end of December. If you or your client have an investment property transaction closing before the end of 2023 – and you have not already set up a 1031 exchange – keep in mind Asset Preservation is available to set up your exchange at the last minute! We can often set up a new 1031 exchange, converting an otherwise taxable sale into a tax-deferred transaction, within an hour. A properly structured exchange provides an investor with up to 45 calendar days to potentially find suitable replacement property.

1031 Exchange Webinar

Thursday, January 4th

10:00 AM – 11:00 AM CT
CPE Available

This one-hour intermediate/advanced webinar covers critical time deadlines, like-kind requirements, fractional ownership, oil/gas/mineral rights, related party transactions, partnership/LLC scenarios, reverse and improvement exchanges, and how to avoid common pitfalls.

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.

1031 exchange basics

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.

Overview of the Corporate Transparency Act (CTA) Reporting Requirements

As of January 1, 2024, the federal Corporate Transparency Act (CTA) has been implemented to enhance transparency and hinder illicit activities facilitated by obscure ownership structures. The CTA mandates the reporting of Beneficial Ownership Information (BOI) concerning the ultimate individual owners of entities, with reporting conducted through the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN).

Asset Preservation, Inc. (API) would like to alert its clients of this new law because most entities will be required to report BOI to FinCEN. In addition, if an exchanger is performing a reverse 1031 exchange, improvement exchange, leasehold improvement exchange, or other parking arrangement and the exchange accommodation titleholder (EAT) entity will be assigned to the exchanger at the conclusion of the exchange, the exchanger will likely be required to report the BOI of that EAT within 30 days of the assignment. Failure to report BOI may result in significant penalties and/or imprisonment.

Who: Entities falling under the category of “reporting companies” are obligated to comply with the CTA. This includes domestic corporations, limited liability companies, and any other entity created by the filing of a document with a secretary of state or similar office in the U.S., along with entities formed under foreign laws but registered to operate in the U.S. Exemptions exist for various entities, such as government bodies, certain securities issuers, financial institutions, accounting firms, tax-exempt entities, and specific large operating companies.

What: BOI encompasses details about individuals who either directly or indirectly own or control at least 25% of a reporting company’s ownership interests or exercise substantial control over the reporting company. The Beneficial Ownership Information Report (BOIR) must contain information about the reporting company and the names, dates of birth, residential addresses, and identification images of the beneficial owners. Timely updates and corrections are required for any changes or inaccuracies.

Where: Reporting is facilitated through the completion of a BOIR form submitted via an online portal accessible at Confirmation of receipt will be provided once the report is successfully filed with FinCEN.

When: Key deadlines for reporting include:

  • Companies existing before January 1, 2024 must file their BOIR by January 1, 2025.
  • Companies created or registered in 2024 must file within 90 days.
  • Companies created or registered after 2024 must file within 30 days.
  • Updated BOIRs must be filed within 30 days of any changes, inaccuracies, or exemptions.

Penalty: Failure to comply with reporting requirements carries significant penalties, including civil or criminal consequences. Penalties may reach up to $500 per day for ongoing violations, with criminal penalties involving imprisonment for up to two years and/or fines of up to $10,000. Senior officers of non-compliant entities may be held accountable. Providing false information or refusing to provide information may also result in accountability.
