Section 1031 of the U.S. Tax Code, known as the "1031 exchange," provides a means for taxpayers to defer the capital gains tax on sales of royalty or mineral rights interests. The deferment occurs when the royalty or mineral rights interest is sold and "like-kind" property of equal or greater worth is purchased. Such property may include:
- Oil and gas working interests
- Real estate
With a thorough understanding of oil and gas law, our firm can help you navigate the complicated tax code provisions and documents needed to complete a 1031 exchange. The benefits have helped countless people postpone the taxes due on eligible properties, permitted investors to diversify without added tax expense and boosted the amount of money available to invest; and we want you to realize all of those benefits also. Please trust that we will do all that is possible to make sure you receive your capital gains deferment.
