Minnesota 1031 Tax Exchanges
Section 1031 is a power tool that allows investors to reinvest their capital in the most advantageous like-kind investment while deferring the capital gains, depreciation recapture and state income tax consequences. The rationale behind Section 1031 is to not penalize Exchangors when they are not cashing out, but are reinvesting all of their equity in like-kind property. This stimulates the economy and moves capital, increasing property values and encouraging more investments.
