1031 Deferred Tax Exchanges Have Extra Time to Complete!

Hello Everyone!

I just received this information from my 1031 Exchange Accommodator, Asset Exchange Company, who shared with me that the IRS has given a valuable extension to those who are working to do a 1031 Exchange with their investment property. This extension gives people extra time to identify a replacement property and also extra time to close on a replacement property, since real estate purchases are taking longer in this market to happen.

Here’s some basic info:

Who Qualifies?

  • Anyone that sold relinquished property and their 45-day deadline falls between April 1st and July 15th.
  • Anyone that sold relinquished property and their 180-day deadline falls between April 1st and July 15th.

What is the Extension?

  • The 45-day deadline has been extended to July 15th.
  • The 180-day deadline has been extended to July 15th.

Examples

  • Taxpayer Bob sold his property on March 1st.  His day 45 deadline of 4/15 is now extended to 7/15.
  • Taxpayer Sue sold her property on October 4, 2019.  Her day 180 of 4/1/2020 is now extended to 7/15/2020.  She does not have an extension for her day 45.
