What is an IRS 1031 Tax-Free Exchange?

An IRS 1031 Tax-Free Exchange is tax law that allows you to postpone the payment of capital gains taxes. By exchanging your capital asset into a like-kind investment, you postpone payment of capital gains tax. Capital gains tax typically is paid on the gain in value of a capital item at its sale. Currently, the federal capital gain tax rate is 20% of the total net gain in capital value.
