Spring 1031 Exchange Update

Is a Partial Exchange Right for You?

A prevailing misconception is that a taxpayer considering a 1031 exchange should always seek to obtain full tax deferral. However, in reality, approximately one-third of taxpayers opt for a partially-deferred 1031 exchange. (Ling & Petrova, The Tax and Economic Impacts of Section 1031 Like-Kind Exchanges in Real Estate (2020) (submitted to the Real Estate Research Consortium), page 12).

Rather than reinvesting the entire net proceeds and acquiring property with an equivalent or higher total amount of debt, some taxpayers opt to reinvest into a replacement property and receive boot. This approach offers numerous benefits, including partial tax deferral and the redeployment of proceeds into another property, thereby enhancing return on investment. The boot portion of the transaction may consist of cash boot (actual cash proceeds received by the taxpayer) or mortgage boot (a reduction in mortgage liabilities on the replacement property compared to the mortgage liabilities on the relinquished property). Typically, cash boot and mortgage boot are taxable, although in certain circumstances boot may not be nontaxable, depending on the taxpayer’s unique facts and circumstances. For instance, a taxpayer may have suspended carryforward losses that could be used to offset some or all of the otherwise taxable boot.

IRS Form 8824 Like-Kind Exchanges

The tax filing date for many taxpayers is just around the corner. The Internal Revenue Service Form 8824, Like-Kind Exchanges, must be completed and filed with the IRS every time a taxpayer performs a 1031 exchange. The IRS Form 8824 contains three sections related to a 1031 exchange:

  • Part 1, Information on the Like-Kind Exchange;
  • Part II, Related Party Exchange Information; and
  • Part III, Realized Gain or (Loss), Recognized Gain, and Basis of Like-Kind Property Received.
