1031 Exchange NJ

Rules 1031 exchanges have specific rules that govern this type of investment property swap. Failure to follow these rules and comply with established timelines can negate the exchange and leave investors open to IRS & NJ taxes and penalties. 1031 exchange rules include the following:

  • Properties must be like-kind (one investment property for a different investment property).
  • You cannot personally receive any funds from the initial investment property sale. The exchange is usually structured through a third party that receives proceeds from the sale of your property and disburses it upon completion of an exchange property purchase.
  • An exchange property must be designated within 45 days of the sale of your property, and you must close on the new property within 180 days.
  • NJ has a mandatory withholding tax for non-resident property sellers who execute a 1031 exchange.
