Americans Build Value
with Section 1031 Like-Kind Exchanges
Since 1921, Section 1031 like-kind exchanges have stimulated capital investment in the United States by allowing funds to be fully reinvested in the enterprise. A broad-spectrum of American taxpayers use Section 1031 to expand businesses, invest for the future, and repurpose real estate for its highest and best use.

Preserving Section 1031
President Biden’s proposed $500,000 cap on Section 1031 like-kind exchanges would effectively eliminate commercial real estate exchanges, as well as larger farm and ranch exchanges.
Due to COVID-19, a significant percentage of hotel, retail and office property throughout the country may need to be repurposed. Larger investors are critical to revitalizing and renovating commercial real estate in a post-pandemic economy.
Recent economic impact studies concluded that like-kind exchanges are a powerful stimulant of transactional activity that will create $568,000 jobs, including $27.5 billion of labor income and a total of $55.3 billion of value added to the U.S. economy.
