Although the current Republican plan for tax reform, the Better Way blueprint, does not directly address repeal of section #1031, it does provide for immediate expensing of business investments. This is leaving many to wonder what role, if any, section 1031 would have after such a rule would go into effect.
While section 1031 would still be valuable for land transactions (where immediate expensing would not be applicable), how would such changes to the tax law affect Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs)? A great summary of why section 1031 would still be valuable for this type of investment can be found here.
