Do You Qualify For A Tax-Deferred 1031 Exchange?

For commercial and investment property owners, a 1031 exchange can be a valuable option to reduce tax obligations. Although 1031 exchanges are complex, they can be especially advantageous if you frequently buy and sell real estate.

This exchange must involve two or more assets of the same type, such as an office building and a warehouse. When you sell your property for a 1031 exchange, the money must go directly under the control of a third party, which is a "qualified intermediary." You may then choose a new property to purchase with all or more than the money you gained from the sale of the first property.

Our attorneys can act as trusted intermediaries and offer counsel to help your exchange succeed. The specific tax outcomes are dependent on your situation, so get a case review before you enter any transaction.
