Your taxes will be based on the gain on sale of the property. Gain will be calculated as the sales price less the selling expenses less the adjusted basis of the property. This adjusted basis of the property is the basis determined at the time of Sec 1031 exchange as per the IRS rules. It may be the original cost basis of the property in Sec 1031 exchange less depreciation claimed on that property and the new property and increased by any additional amount paid.
