  • 1031 Exchanges: A property transaction that qualifies for a deferred tax exchange because it follows Section 1031 of the internal revenue code, which states “No gain or loss shall be recognized on the exchange of property held for productive use in a trade or business or for investment if such property is exchanged solely for property of like kind which is to be held either for productive use in a trade or business or for investment.”
