If you are planning on selling and buying business or investment assets this year, a 1031 exchange is a great way to defer taxes on capital gains or depreciation recapture.
You may be wondering, what types of assets are exchangeable? Generally all real estate is considered to be “like-kind.” However, in other types of exchanges, defining “like-kind” can be somewhat more difficult. Section 1031 also applies to like-class properties (categorized using the North American Industry Classification System) which include:
- Farm and agriculture equipment
- Manufacturing equipment[lightbox link=”https://nesfinancial.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/Trucks-2.jpg” thumb=”https://nesfinancial.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/Trucks-2-300×197.jpg” width=”300″ align=”right” title=”dv616095″ frame=”true” icon=”image”]
