What is IRC 1031 Exchange & How to Apply It (Live: #3482 / Zoom: #3796) - A class defining the Tax code 1031. Whenever you sell business or investment property and you have a gain, you generally have to pay tax on the gain at the time of sale. IRC Section 1031 provides an exception and allows you to postpone paying tax on the gain if you reinvest the proceeds in similar property as part of a qualifying like-kind exchange. Gain deferred in a like-kind exchange under IRC Section 1031 is tax-deferred, but it is not tax-free. Taught by John Starling with National Realty Exchange Corporation.
