The 1031 exchange is thought by many to be one of the more powerful tax deferral tools currently available. Under the Internal Revenue Code Section 1031, taxpayers may be able to defer the capital gains tax on the sale of appreciated investment property if they reinvest the proceeds in “like-kind” property. Almost any property that is held for business or investment purposes may qualify as “like-kind” including apartments, single-family rentals, land, office, industrial, storage, retail and hotel properties, among others.
A Delaware Statutory Trust (DST) may be used to complete a 1031 exchange.
A DST may offer potential benefits that might be attractive to someone selling appreciated real estate. In addition to allowing the individual to defer taxes, a DST might offer the following:
Monocot Wealth Management provides clients access to DST properties in a number of states.
Of course, a DST is not without risk and is not for everyone. As with any investment, it is important to understand the risks and weigh them against the potential benefits with the help of the right investment, legal and tax professionals.
