1031 Exchanges

There are a number of great options when trying to complete a 1031 exchange. In a higher tax rate climate starting in 2013, its important to understand all options before deciding to pay capital gains tax, state tax, depreciation recapture and possibly the alternative minimum tax on the sales proceeds.

For some, a 1031 may not make sense because they don’t want to deal with the headaches of real estate.¬†¬†However, there are still real estate options such as TICs and Delaware Statutory Trusts where real estate is professionally managed and provide a retirement income. There are also oil and gas opportunities that qualify for 1031 exchanges and lets not forget the Deferred Sales Trust.

Sellers should check out all of their options before deciding to pay tax on their sale. Best wishes.
