1031 Tax Deferred Exchange

A tax-deferred exchange is a valuable investment tool that allows you to dispose of investment properties and acquire "like-kind" properties while deferring federal capital gains taxes and depreciation recapture. Most states with a capital gains tax offer a similar tax advantage. The bottom line: a tax-deferred exchange allows you to reinvest sales proceeds that would otherwise be paid to the government in taxes.
