What is a 1031 Tax Exchange and how can it benefit me?
A 1031 Tax Exchange is usually of greatest benefit to rental investors in White Post that have owned rental unit for a longer period of time (more than ten years). Thanks to IRC Section 1031, a properly structured 1031 exchange allows a real estate investor to sell a property, to reinvest the proceeds in a new rental and to defer all capital gain taxes. IRC Section 1031 (a)(1) states:
“No gain or loss shall be recognized on the exchange of property held for productive use in a trade or business or for investment, if such property is exchanged solely for property of like-kind which is to be held either for productive use in a trade or business or for investment.”
To understand the powerful protection a 1031 exchange offers, consider the following examples:
- A property owner has a $100,000 capital gain and incurs a tax liability of approximately $35,000 in combined taxes (depreciation recapture, federal and state capital gain taxes) when the property is sold. Only $65,000 remains to reinvest in another property.
Assuming a 25% down payment and a 75% loan-to-value ratio, the seller would only be able to purchase a $260,000 new property.
- If the same rental investor chose to exchange, however, he or she would be able to reinvest the entire $100,000 of equity in the purchase of $400,000 in real estate, assuming the same down payment and loan-to-value ratios.
As the above example shows, exchanges shelter rental investors from capital gain taxes as well as facilitating significant portfolio growth and increased return on investment. In order to access the full potential of these benefits, it is critical to have a good working knowledge of the exchange process and the IRC. For instance, an accurate understanding of the key term “like-kind” can reveal possibilities that could have otherwise been overlooked.
What is a short-sale?
A short-sale happens when the seller sells a property for less than what is owed on the property. In the past, because of market contractions, some of our real estate investor clients have found themselves in an untenable situation with regards to their property. In those cases the best way out was often a short sale. Quite frankly, due to market expansion and inflation, this has not been much of an issue lately.
Above all, if you need it, members of our staff have CPDE (certified distressed property expert) training. We can clarify the consequences of a short-sale help you decide if that option is right for you and your rental.
