What is Internal Revenue Code Section 1031?
Since 1921, Federal tax law under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) section 1031 has permitted a taxpayer to exchange business-use or investment assets for other like-kind business use or investment assets without recognizing taxable gain on the sale of the old assets. The taxes, which otherwise would have been due from the sale, are thus deferred. These can range from relatively simple transactions involving commercial, agricultural and rental real estate to more complex transactions involving aircraft, trucks, trailers, containers, railcars, agricultural equipment, other heavy equipment, livestock and other assets. Most 1031 Exchanges involve separate buyers and sellers and are not simple swaps between two parties. Under these circumstances, tax rules require the use of an independent third party Qualified Intermediary (QI). The QI holds the sale proceeds for the benefit of the taxpayer during the exchange, disbursing funds for purchase of like-kind replacement property, and returning any unused funds to the taxpayer at the end of the exchange. 1031 Exchanges must be completed within 180 days. Taxpayers recognize gain and pay tax on any unused funds or when they ultimately “cash out” of their property.

Tax rules for non-simultaneous exchanges require the use of an independent third party Qualified Intermediary (QI). Prior to the transfer of the old investment property, the services of a QI are retained to prepare the necessary documentation, securely hold your exchange funds and acquire your new investment property. The QI holds the sale proceeds for the benefit of the taxpayer during the exchange, disbursing funds for purchase of like-kind replacement property, and returning any unused funds to the taxpayer at the end of the exchange. Choosing a Qualified Intermediary (QI) to handle your exchange is a critical part of your 1031 Exchange. Not all QIs are the same. IPX1031 is the best choice for your 1031. Here’s why:
