IRS EXTENDS 1031 EXCHANGE PERIOD

April 1st and July 15th, If you’re in a 1031 Exchange, don’t forget these dates. Recently the IRS offered property owners in the middle of their 1031 exchange some much-needed relief with the release of Notice 2020-23. Under this notice, the IRS granted automatic extensions to:

• Anyone that sold (relinquished) property with their 45-day deadline falling between April 1st and July 15th.
• Anyone that sold (relinquished) property with their 180-day deadline falling between April 1st and July 15th.

The new deadline for all qualifying 1031 Exchanges is now July 15th, 2020.  We are watching these events unfold very closely and will continue to provide guidance for our investors as the IRS releases more information.

EXAMPLES

Scenario 1:
Taxpayer Jill sold her property on March 1st. Her 45-day identification period would have ended on April 15th, but with the release of Notice 2020-23, it is now July 15th.

Scenario 2:
Taxpayer Alex sold his property on October 4th, 2019. His 180-day deadline would have been been on April 1st, 2020 but now, it has been extended to July 15th, 2020.
