Here’s how it works – Generally, if you exchange business or investment property solely for business or investment property of a like kind, no gain or loss is recognized under IRS code section 1031. However, if as a part of the exchange you also receive other (not like kind) property or money, a gain is recognized to the extent of the other property and money received, but a loss is not recognized. The Section 1031 does not apply to exchanges of inventory, stocks, bonds, notes, other securities or evidence of indebtedness or certain other assets.
