Property Ownership Requirements / Partnerships

In a successful 1031 exchange, the taxpayer who sells the relinquished property must be the same taxpayer who acquires the relinquished property. This is often referred to as the “Same Taxpayer Requirement.

Many taxpayers may own property through partnerships in which individual partners may or may not desire to perform an exchange when selling the property. This structure often creates difficulty for the partners and hinders the exchange process. Luckily, there are structuring options for these partners that will allow them to successfully complete a tax-deferred exchange. SEA 1031 can assist a taxpayer with identifying them.
