A 1031 Exchange, or “like-kind” exchange, is a tax-deferred exchange that provides an efficient way for a taxpayer to defer capital gain taxes on eligible classes of real and personal property that were initially acquired or held for a business or investment purpose. An investor who uses a 1031 Exchange may defer the capital gain while disposing of low-basis assets and can increase leverage through reinvestment of the cash savings.
