What is a 1031 Exchange?

A 1031 Exchange serves as a tax deferral mechanism, enabling sellers of eligible real estate to postpone taxes on their transaction, encompassing Capital Gains, Depreciation Recapture, and Net Investment Income Tax. This deferral is contingent upon utilizing the proceeds from the sale to acquire other qualifying real property. Compliance with various prerequisites is necessary to ensure a valid 1031 Exchange.

What is the role of a Qualified Intermediary?

A Qualified Intermediary ensures adherence to IRC 1031 requirements for a legitimate 1031 Exchange. This encompasses the following responsibilities:

  • Procures the relinquished property from the Exchanger and transfers it to the Buyer.

  • Ensures that the Exchanger does not directly or indirectly receive any funds from the sale of the relinquished property.

  • Acquires the replacement property from the Seller and transfers it to the Exchanger.

  • Designs the exchange structure in accordance with IRC 1031 guidelines.

  • Prepares all pertinent documentation associated with the exchange.

  • Monitors the exchange progress and provides instructions to the Exchanger to ensure ongoing compliance throughout the process.
