Are any properties excluded from a 1031 Exchange?

The 1031 Exchange is a powerful tool for investors, but there are some types of property that are not eligible for exchange. The following post explains which assets do, and do not qualify.

What Is a 1031 Exchange?

A 1031 Exchange is a transaction that allows an investor to defer paying capital gains taxes on the sale of an investment property by reinvesting the proceeds from the sale into a similar property.

To be eligible for a 1031 Exchange, the property must be held for investment or used in a trade or business. Property held primarily for personal use, such as a primary residence or vacation home, does not qualify.

Additional Assets That are Not Eligible For a 1031 Exchange

Under current IRS rules and regulations, the following types of property are also not eligible for a 1031 exchange:

– Personal property, such as cars, boats, furniture, or artwork

– Stocks, bonds, or other securities

– Partnership interests

– Interests in S corporations

– Collectibles, such as coins or stamps

If you are thinking about selling an investment property, it’s important to consult with a qualified intermediary to determine if a 1031 Exchange is right for you and if the property you currently own and the one you are thinking about purchasing qualifies for a 1031 Exchange.
