Tax Free Sales of Vacation Homes

One of the many gray areas with Section 1031(aka Starker) tax deferred exchanges is whether vacation homes qualify. I have long believed that if you consider the property to be held for investment purposes, it does qualify. Even that well-known socialist Congressman from St. Louis, Dickless Gephardt (whose favorite phrase is that anyone receiving any money has “won life’s lottery“), used this approach a number of years ago when he used Section 1031 to legally avoid taxes on the sale of a vacation home.

Here’s a more detailed analysis of the application of Section 1031 to vacation homes that is very interesting.
