1031 EXCHANGES

Tax-deferred exchanges are authorized by Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code. The requirements of the Section and other applicable sections must be carefully and thoroughly met, but when an exchange is done properly, the tax on the transaction is deferred, usually until the “replacement” property is sold.

We have a number of 1031 companies that we can recommend to act as Qualified Intermediary pursuant to the applicable regulations of Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code. Our Commercial Escrow Officers will coordinate the documentation with your counsel and your tax advisors to assure the smooth closing of these transactions. Contact us for more information.
