Discover Tax Deferred

1031 Exchanges

“No gain or loss shall be recognized on the exchange of real property held for productive use in a trade or business or for investment, if such real property is exchanged solely for real property of like-kind which is to be held either for productive use in a trade or business or for investment.” 

A 1031 exchange allows you to avoid paying capital gains taxes when you sell investment real estate and reinvest the proceeds from the sale within certain time limits in real estate of equal or greater value.

Many of our clients purchase TIC ownership through a 1031 exchange. A 1031 tax-deferred exchange is a method of selling one property and acquiring another without paying capital gains tax on the transaction. In such an exchange, the deferral of capital gains tax is indefinite.

In 2002 the IRS endorsed the TIC ownership structure as an acceptable means of deferring capital gains tax  through a 1031 exchange. Our properties satisfy all of the requirements for this tax-deferral vehicle. By consistently maintaining an inventory of excellent properties, Millcreek Commercial Properties is always able to help our clients meet the strict timelines imposed to complete an exchange.
