Internal Revenue Code Section 1031 is one of the single greatest wealth building tools available to the real estate investor.
Internal Revenue Code Section 1031 allows investors to defer the payment of capital gains taxes when selling an investment property and exchanging into another investment property.
Asset Exchange Company is a Qualified Intermediary (also known as an Exchange Accommodator or Facilitator) that helps investors adhere to the rules within the tax code that are required for proper structure of an exchange.
U.S. Treasury Regulations specifically require the use of a Qualified Intermediary (QI) to facilitate the 1031 Exchange process. The QI must be a neutral third party to the transaction and will be assigned into the transaction as the seller (or buyer) and ensure the exchangor avoids constructive receipt of sale proceeds.
Asset Exchange Company is a Qualified Intermediary facilitating delayed, reverse and construction exchanges.
Asset Exchange Company is the only QI in the industry that guarantees that all exchange documents are drafted and reviewed by a licensed attorney. A sound exchange agreement is the best defense in the event of an IRS audit.
