What Kind of Property Qualifies?

The relinquished property needs to be qualifying property. This includes property or equipment that is held for investment or used in your business. Office facilities and equipment used for business purposes qualify. The key is that real estate property and equipment needs to be replaced with like-kind real estate. Property that does not qualify includes:
  • A personal residence
  • Land being developed
  • Corporation common stock
  • Property purchased or held for resale
  • Construction or fix/flips for resale
  • Inventory property
  • Partnership interests
  • Notes and bonds
The title must be the same on the replacement property as it is on the relinquished property.
