Thank you for contacting me about your Tax issue. I will work hard to help you understand the issue clearly.

I did not see an actual question there, so how may we help you today?

oops......I need to know how to fill in the form, I keep triying and each time get diferent results....this means it is not correct.....


Property A was sold and property B is in contract. According to IRS this qualifies as a Like kind exchange....


I just cant figure out the form....
I

I am unable to fill out a form for you, but if you have a question about where a specific item goes or what a line instruction means, I will be glad to help.

 

 

Let me ask one very important question:

 

Was this sale and purchase done through a third-party agent? (Not your real estate agent)?

 

Or did you receive the money from the first sale and now you are putting it as a down payment on the new property?

Customer reply replied 4 years ago


Money was put on escrow account from day of sale. It was always the purpose to find another property.

Did you have a 1031 agent in this transaction? I am concerned that you may nave an invalid exchange.

 

On the final HUD-1, who was the SELLER of record?

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

yes there is a IRS 1031 exchange trust agreement on file.


and Im concerned about lines 23 and 24 on form 8824

Line 23 recognized gain means any money you took OUT of the deal and put it in your pocket. If all the gain is deferred, then the full amount is on Line 24

no you have not.....still cant figure out why I come up with a 0 on


line 24 deffered gain when the purchased property is 40 thousand more


than the selling price price of original property.


It took me a few minutes to open the return...


 


see below copy of my 8824 amounts


 


Line amount


15 432,111


16 940,000


17 1,372,111


18 1,333,260


19 38,851


20 38,851


21 0


22 38,851


23 38,851


24 0


25 940,000


 

I think one of the keys is that you indicated you received 432111 in cash on Line 15. This indicates you actually received cash OUT of the deal. That would make the entire gain NOT tax deferred.

Customer reply replied 4 years ago


so what do I write there, nothing? I thought I was supposed to write there


the amount of $$ received after closing costs???


was this for any other additional cash received? so this should be zero....


am I correct now? (finally?)

If all the money went to the escrow account and you got no cash at close, then this line SHOULD be 0 (Line 15). If you got cash, then it goes there.

Ask Your Own Tax Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

yep, all the $$ went to the escrow acct.....


now the thing is how am I going to get it to zero....(line 15)....


I have to start all the calculations.....sh........


I hate this form.......


I do LLC's, (65+ fam buildings) corps, various states....


and this form of only 2 pages gave me such a hard time.....


I now feel dumb.....

Sorry. Blame da guvmint.
