Like-Kind 1031 Property Exchanges in Montana for Tax Purposes

Whether it’s Montana real estate or not, generally, if you exchange business or investment property solely for another business or investment property of a like-kind, no gain or loss is recognized under Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Code Section 1031.

If, as part of the 1031 tax exchange, you also receive other (not like-kind) property or money, gain is recognized to the extent of the other property and money received, but a loss is not recognized.

Note: Section 1031 does not apply to exchanges of inventory, stocks, bonds, notes, other securities or evidence of indebtedness, or certain other assets.

Like-Kind Montana 1031 Tax Exchange Properties

Properties are of like-kind if they are of the same nature or character, even if they differ in grade or quality. Personal properties of a like class are like-kind properties. However, farm and ranch livestock of different sexes are not like-kind properties. Also, personal property used predominantly in the United States and personal property used predominantly outside the United States are not like-kind properties.

Generally, Montana real properties, whether improved or unimproved, are of like-kind.

Real properties inside the United States and real properties outside the United States are NOT like-kind properties.
