1031 Exchange

At Northstar Funding in Hoboken, NJ we believe that selling property shouldn’t cost you a fortune in capital gains taxes. A 1031 exchange, also known as a tax-deferred exchange, is a strategy we employ for selling one qualified property and then using the proceeds to acquire another qualified property without immediately incurring a capital gains tax liability.

eon1031lgThanks to IRC Section 1031, a properly structured 1031 exchange allows an investor to sell a property, to reinvest the proceeds in a new property 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 example: An investor has a $200,000 capital gain and incurs a tax liability of approximately $70,000 in combined taxes (depreciation recapture, federal and state capital gain taxes) when the property is sold. Only $130,000 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 $520,000 new property. If the same investor chose to exchange, however, he or she would be able to reinvest the entire $200,000 of equity in the purchase of $800,000 in real estate, assuming the same down payment and loan-to-value ratios.

Don't Throw Your Money Away

1031 exchanges allow investors to defer the tax on real estate-related capital gains until sometime in the future. When used correctly, a 1031 exchange can be a highly effective wealth-building tool, allowing you to re-invest your hard-earned equity now – when you need it.
