About Legal 1031

The main focus at Legal 1031 Exchange Services, LLC is customer service. IRC 1031 exchanges can sometimes be complicated but more so when clients are working on their first §1031 transaction. Our goal at Legal 1031 is to take the uncertainty out of the transaction and make our clients feel comfortable.

Many qualified intermediaries try to have you fill out forms over the internet and limit your conversations. Legal 1031 takes the opposite approach – we encourage our clients to contact us so that they feel confident and comfortable as they work through their transaction.


1031 Exchange Disaster Extension Calculator

Federally Declared Disasters

In the event of a federally declared disaster, an exchanger may be eligible for an extension of either the 45-day identification deadline, the 180-day exchange deadline, or both deadlines. Typically, the disaster relief is available to “affected taxpayers” and to other transferors of property who are specifically impacted as defined in Rev. Proc. 2018-58, Section 17. This calculator is a tool to help those who qualify for an extension calculate their potential deadlines pursuant to the relief provided in Rev. Proc. 2018-58, Section 17.

What is a §1031 Exchange?

An IRC §1031 tax deferred exchange allows owners of real or personal property to defer the recognition of a capital gains tax they would have recognized when they sold their property. Exchanging allows investors to reinvest money into new business or investment properties that would otherwise have been paid to the government as a capital gains tax. Tax deferred exchanges are not new – they have been available in one form or another since 1921, and in its current format since 1986.
