Section 1031 Like-Kind Exchange

Current tax law permits an investor in real estate to defer capital gains taxes on exchanging an investment property for another property of like kind that is also held for investment, so long as the taxpayer satisfies numerous requirements and consummates a purchase of replacement property within 180 days of the transfer of the relinquished property. In the 113th Congress, several tax reform proposals included repealing or severely limiting Section 1031. However, no legislation related to Section 1031 has been introduced in the 114th Congress (which began in January 2015).
