Why Consider a 1031 Exchange in Washington?
Washington property owners can pay up to 28.8% in taxes on the sale of their investment property because of capital gain and depreciation recapture. With a 1031 Exchange, you can defer, reduce, and even eliminate paying taxes.
A 1031 Exchange allows real estate investors to defer capital gains tax on recently sold investment property by reinvesting the proceeds into like-kind property of equal or greater value. The transaction gets its name from Section 1031 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code.
