Blethen Exchange




What is a 1031 Exchange

Under Section 1031 of the United States Revenue Code, a taxpayer may defer recognition of capital gains and related Federal income tax liability on the exchange of certain property types.

Capital gains tax can be significant.  Reinvesting in a replacement property allows taxpayers to maximize their dollars that would otherwise be lost to taxes.
