A 1031 exchange is simply a method by which a real property owner disposes of one property and acquires another without having to pay any capital gains tax on the transaction. In an ordinary sale transaction, the property owner is taxed on any gain realized by the sale of the property. In an exchange, the tax on the exchange is deferred indefinitely.
1031 exchanges are authorized by Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code. Careful adherence to the requirements of Section 1031 is important in maintaining the tax-free status of the transaction.
As a qualified 1031 Intermediary, Fidelity Title can bring you through a 1031 Exchange with the greatest of ease.
Because of favorable tax law changes, Reverse Exchanges have become commonplace over the last few years; they can provide great opportunities and advantages in managing your real or personal property investments.
As the name suggests, the Reverse Exchange works through the â€œexchangeâ€of property. Upon the sale of an investment property, you can defer all capital gains tax by purchasing a replacement property. A Reverse Exchange is different from a 1031 Exchange, mostly because it allows you to purchase property first, then sell your existing investment.
Fidelity Title can lead you through any and all of your needs for a Reverse Exchange!
