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.

So... if the purchase price was of the 1031 property was $600K but it was sold but it was sold at $500K ... my taxes are based on the $500K? Thanks so very much.

No, the basis of the property will be determined based on the adjusted basis of the original property that was sold in a like kind transactions.

Most likely you must have filed Form 8824 when reporting the like kind exchange. This will provide you the basis of the property received.
