Under section 1031 of the Internal Revenue code, a property owner can sell his property and then reinvest the proceeds in ownership of like-kind property (property exchange), deferring capital gains taxes in the process. Real estate investors ready to act in growing markets can benefit greatly from 1031 tax exchanges, but this powerful strategy is complicated. That’s why the experts at McKesson Title Corp. are proud to offer intermediary services in every state in the U.S.A.
To qualify as a like-kind exchange, property exchanges must be done in accordance with the rules set forth in the tax code and in the treasury regulations. There are very stringent time and documentation requirements in the exchange process. McKesson Title Corp., as Qualified Intermediary, can guide you through the entire process. Because of the complexity of the process, we recommend beginning with an in-person, no-cost consultation.
Don’t pay unnecessary taxes. McKesson Title Corp. will work with you and your accountant and/or attorney to achieve the tax deferment you are entitled, by law, to receive!
The 1031 exchange can offer significant tax advantages to real estate buyers. These exchanges, also known as Starker exchanges (named for the first tax case that allowed them), allow real estate investors freedom to change their investment strategies without incurring tax liability.
Often overlooked, a 1031 exchange is considered one of the best-kept secrets in the Internal Revenue Code.
