This course will provide an overview of Section 1031, like-kind exchanges (LKEs), so that both new and seasoned tax professionals can better advise clients participating in these transactions. The panel will provide an overview of the components of LKEs, including defining qualifying property, understanding critical dates, calculating the basis of property acquired, depreciating replacement property and how to complete Form 8824.


A Section 1031 exchange is one of the most potent and beneficial tax-savings tools available to all taxpayers. Section 1031 allows a taxpayer to defer and possibly avoid the tax on the sale of certain property by buying other property. Although conceptually simple, making sure an exchange meets the requirements is critical. Taking cash out or purchasing lower-valued replacement property can cause recognition of some or all of the gain.

Listen as our panel of experts explains the types of Section 1031 exchanges, how to structure a compliant transaction, when and how partial tax is calculated on an LKE, and the essential use of a qualified intermediary.

  3. Qualified intermediaries and avoiding constructive receipt
  4. Critical dates
