Eligibility for disaster extensions could vary on a case-by-case basis and the Covered Disaster Areas specified in IRS guidance are often updated over time. Exchangers and their advisors should carefully review any IRS guidance regarding disaster relief and make any determinations accordingly. When considering the impact of these disasters, it is important to determine if you or one of your clients is an affected taxpayer or otherwise eligible for tax relief, even if located far from the disaster area. If so, you should promptly contact your § 1031 qualified intermediary.
Our website also features a 1031 exchange deadline extension calculator for those taxpayers who qualify for relief under Rev. Proc. 2018-58, Section 17.
