Special Rules for end-of-year 1031 Exchanges

Wednesday, November 15, 2017 by David Gorenberg

As the end of the year approaches and tax deadlines loom, many investors have the same concern: Do I have enough time to complete a 1031 exchange?

The answer is that you probably do have enough time! Section 1031 exchanges that begin at year-end have a slightly different restriction than a typical exchange.

The statute indicates that the exchange must be completed within 180 days or the due date of the Exchanger's tax return (including extensions), whichever date is earlier. So, a typical exchange that begins in November or December would have to be completed by April 15 of the following year. However, if the Taxpayer files for an extension, he will have the full 180 days to complete the exchange.

With any 1031 exchange, it pays to trust a skilled and experienced Qualified Intermediary like Riverside 1031 to advise you and guide you through a successful exchange.
