The Basics About Section 1031:

Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue code provides that no loss or gain can be recognized on the exchange of property held for productive use in a trade or a business, or for an investment.  A 1031 exchange allows a property owner to trade one, or more, properties for one, or more, replacement properties of "like-kind" and defer the payment of federal income taxes and in some state taxes until the property is eventually sold outside of an exchange.

To meet IRS's specification, the property must be identified within 45 days of the date of transfer of the property being relinquished in the exchange and the exchange must be completed within 180 days.  Transactions must be handled by a qualifying intermediary or QI, and confirm to the strict IRS rules.  A QI is an independent party who facilitates the tax-deferred exchanges.  There are many companies that provide this service.  Below, find the IRS Manual, QI and IRS information links to explore.
