Like-Kind Exchanges under Section 1034 (WEBS0778)

Tuesday, February 6, 2018 | 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM (Registration at 12:30PM) EST |

Description

Whenever a taxpayer sells business or investment property, the taxpayer may have a gain on which he or she must pay tax at the time of sale. Section 1031 provides an exception and allows the taxpayer to postpone paying tax on the gain if he or she reinvests the proceeds in similar property as part of a qualifying like-kind exchange. Gain deferred in a like-kind exchange under Section 1031 is tax-deferred, but it is not tax-free. The exchange can include like-kind property exclusively, or it can include like-kind property along with cash, liabilities and property that are not like-kind. If the taxpayer receives cash or relief from debt or property that is not like-kind, however, some taxable gain may be triggered in the year of the exchange. There can be both deferred and recognized gain in the same transaction when a taxpayer exchanges for like-kind property of lesser value.
