1031 exchanges (outlined in the Internal Revenue Code) are a way to defer all of your capital gains taxes on the sale of property. Instead of taking the money from the sale, a 1031 allows you to defer those gains by reinvesting the net proceeds into other property, so long as it’s like-kind. So rather than cutting a check to the government when you sell your property, you can keep your money working for you in a continued investment.
