Customer Question
I have a client...

I have a client who sold an apartment building. Using a qualified intermediary, the proceeds were used to pay off the mortgage and invested is a DST (Deleware Statuary Trust). There was also debt acquired in the exchange. This is supposed to be a 1031 exchange but I cannot seem to figure out how to correctly book the transaction. GAAP financials are not being issued so I do not need to be concerned with a book to tax difference.

Accountant's Assistant: When was the property or asset sold?

In September 2017 New asset acquired in October 2017

Accountant's Assistant: Anything else you want the Accountant to know before I connect you?

I can provide figures. Part of the sale also transferred security deposits and partial rent collected for September. My main concern is recording the basis of the new asset correctly.

You would probably want to debit the new asset (investment in DST) and credit the building to get it off your books.
