How does a 1031 exchange work?

According to the Internal Revenue Service’s Code 1.1031(k), a person owning property for investment or business purposes can sell their property and purchase "like-kind" replacement property or properties, through the use of a Qualified Intermediary, in order to defer payment of their capital gains taxes. The replacement property the exchangor expects to purchase must be identified within 45 days, and settled within 180 days of the date of settlement of the relinquished property.


How does Northern 1031 Exchange help?

In an exchange, Northern 1031 Exchange acts as the Qualified Intermediary, which is a key requirement for completing a qualified tax-deferred transaction. As a Qualified Intermediary, we have extensive knowledge of the exchange procedures and contract stipulations, and we will help make the process simple and efficient. It is important to note that the tax code forbids parties such as the seller’s agent, broker, attorney, accountant, family members and business partners from acting in this capacity.

What qualifies as "like-kind" property?

“Like-kind” doesn’t refer to the grade or quality of a property, but rather the property’s nature or character. For example, if you own a single-family rental property and wish to purchase a farm as a replacement, then that falls under the definition of “like-kind.” Exchanging a lot or condominium for an office building also meets those guidelines. The IRS has broadly defined the type of property that may be exchanged for any other type of property or properties.


What doesn't qualify as "like-kind" property?

Examples of properties that would not qualify for a 1031 exchange would be a personal residence, speculative houses or properties designated for a quick turnaround (i.e. purchasing a home or other property and completing improvements for immediate sale), partnership interests, stocks and bonds.
