Repeal 1031 Exchanges / tax reform will hurt real estate











There is no short cut to achievement. Life requires thorough preparation – veneer isn’t worth anything.

I am writing to make you aware of a tax reform proposal in Congress that will have a negative effect on residential and commercial real estate investments.  Therefore, it will have a negative effect on all of us.    Please read this important info below from IPX1031 and support the efforts to protect residential and commercial real estate investments,  and the real estate industry by clicking on their link to send an e-mail to your Senators and Representative.

your voice matters,  say no to congress
I am writing to inform you of a proposal in Congress that will have a negative effect on real estate. Therefore, it will have a negative effect on all of the title operations here at FNF.

There are three tax reform proposals in Congress that would repeal Section 1031 of the tax code in order to raise revenue.  While tax reform is a worthy goal, it would result in a 40% to 50% effective tax rate on many commercial and residential real estate investment transactions for both large and small investors.   It is the wrong way to do tax reform.

Section 1031 allows real estate investors to sell a property, defer the tax, and reinvest the proceeds within 180 days.  Section 1031 touches 45% of the investment transactions nationally.   In Southern California, one commercial broker told us that 90% of their transactions involve a 1031 Exchange.

Section 1031 has been an important part of the tax code since 1921.  Congress is wrong in assuming that it would raise revenue because eventually the taxes do get paid.  Section 1031 is not a tax deduction. It is a tax deferral.  It is also a very important economic stimulant.

IPX1031® is the FNF company that processes our 1031 business. They have a web site dedicated to tax reform.

I am asking each of you to click on the attached link below.  The link allows you to send a letter to both of your Senators and your U.S. Representative.  It takes 30 seconds.

Please understand that this is completely voluntary.

If you support our efforts to keep Section 1031, please forward this email to your employees, business associates, family and friends to ask for their support also.  Thank you for your consideration.
