1031 Exchanges & Farming

1031 Exchanges, The Family Farm, & You

There are several reasons why farmers may want to consider a 1031 exchange. For example, typically when farmers sell a piece of property (or would rather have a different piece of property), they don’t want the cash. Rather, they want another piece of property.

Call toll free (1-866-244-3517) and talk to Jeff Baker, CPA to find out if a 1031 exchange is right for you.

The 1031 exchange allows them to trade a more valuable piece of property for a larger piece of property or an older tractor for a newer tractor. So it’s basically a way of keeping taxes out of that transaction.

Inheritance & 1031 Exchanges

If a family inherits a farm, the 1031 exchange can also be very helpful. For instance, maybe there’s one member of the family that’s a farmer and the other brothers and sisters are not. In this case, it’s possible that a few of the heirs would rather have the cash, but the farmer wants to keep farming. The heir or heirs who do not want to receive cash could then do a 1031 exchange. One might take his proceeds and exchange it into a piece of farm real estate, and another might take his proceeds and exchange it for a rental property or some other type of real estate. It just has to be an exchange of income producing for income producing.
