"I’ve dedicated myself to helping real estate investors better understand the 1031 exchange process, how to shelter taxes, build generational wealth, and generate passive income. What really excites me is how the Delaware Statutory Trust (DST) can help tired landlords retire/exit from their real estate while sheltering their taxes." – Casey Lesher

  • A 1031 exchange is a strategic & powerful tax deferral strategy that allows real estate investment sellers to defer taxes, if all proceeds are reinvested into like-kind investment property of equal or greater value. The Identification of replacement property must be done within 45 days or else taxes are owed. If used correctly, there is no limit on how frequently you can 1031 exchange and continue to accumulate tax free wealth.
  • Important Timelines and Rules
    • 45 Day Rule
      • Once the sale of the property occurs, the qualified intermediary will receive the cash from the sale. You then have 45 calendar days to identify an equal or greater value replacement property or else you pay taxes.
    • 180 Day Rule:
      • You must close on your replacement property within 180 days of the sale of your old property.
  • The 3 Property Rule:
    • Allows for identification of any three properties, that’s combined to be equal or greater in value from the property sold.
  • The 200% Rule:
    • Allows for the identification of more than 3 properties, as long as the combined value does not exceed 200% of the property value sold.
  • A Delaware Statutory Trust is a separate legal entity created as a trust under Delaware law in which each owner has a beneficial interest for federal income tax purposes and is treated as owning an undivided fractional interest in the property. In 2004, the IRS released revenue ruling 2004 – 86, which allows the use of a DST to acquire real estate where the beneficial interest in the trust will be treated as direct interest in the replacement property for purposes of conducting 1031 exchanges.
