Currently, as of August 2021, a 1031 exchange allows a taxpayer to avoid paying capital gains taxes when selling an investment property by reinvesting the proceeds from the sale, within specific parameters, into another property(s). Up until now, this part of the tax code has been helpful to those selling and buying real estate as they are not burdened by the taxes on something they do not have any cash flow from since they rolled over those funds.

Like the Lifetime Gift Tax Exemption, the 1031 Exchange is part of the White House wishes list of reform to fund various government programs.  Right now, there is no dollar limitation in the 1031 guidelines, it just has to be real estate, and you have to follow the specific guidelines and parameters outlined in the IRS code. However, in the White House’s wish list, they propose capping the amount of gain you can roll over into a new property tax-free at $500,000.00.
