1031 Exchange Services

Eastern Michigan Bank offers 1031 Exchange Services through our wholly owned subsidiary, Eastern Michigan Exchange Services, LLC.

Our 1031 Exchange Service provides individuals and companies with comprehensive, like-kind exchange tax deferral solutions and strategies. Participants can postpone or potentially eliminate taxes owed on the sale of qualifying real estate through a properly executed 1031 exchange.


What is a 1031 Exchange?

The "1031" refers to IRS Code § 1031. When a capital asset is sold, capital gain and recaptured depreciation taxes are triggered. If the taxpayer’s intent is to replace the property sold with like-kind property of equal or greater value or even partial value within 180 calendar days, the tax obligation can be deferred indefinitely or until the replacement property is sold. There is no limit to the number of 1031 exchanges a taxpayer can initiate and the proceeds can be reinvested into a business or invested property anywhere in the United States.

1031 Exchange Examples

Commercial property such as farm land, rental properties, condominiums, buildings, shopping centers, strip malls, timberland and land are all examples of real property eligible for a 1031 exchange.
