A 1031 Tax Deferred Exchange is a provision of the Internal Revenue Code which lets property owners exchange their property for another property without paying capital gains. The other property must be ""like-kind"" which means they have to be the same type of property. There are two types of property that are eligible for §1031. They are property that is for business use (§1231) and land held for investment (§1221). Property held for personal use or held primarily for sale (dealer property) are not eligible. There are exceptions to this. For example, if a property is for personal use and business, it can be eligible for §1031. A farm can be someone's residence and their business.
