Why a 1031?

The short answer to why use a 1031 exchange for your next real estate transaction is that you defer — perhaps indefinitely — federal or state capital gain or income taxes (including the alternative minimum tax and depreciation recapture taxes)¬†on the sale of the property. For many real estate investors, this savings can be measured as many thousands of dollars.

Keeping your money working for you in productive assets make the 1031 exchange the most important part of the tax code for most property investors.
