The IRS tax code 1033 is less prevalent than the more common 1031 exchange.  The 1033 is usually referred to as an “Involutary Conversion” and used when an investment property has been destroyed in whole or part from theft, seizure, requisition, condemnation, threat or imminence by compulsorily or involuntarily converted or acquired.  The client we are working with currently, their property(s) are be acquired through eminent domain where the Government seizes the property for their purposes, in this case the new bullet train and negotiates a settled price with the owner.  For more information click this link.

This tax code dates back to 1921 and the unique thing about this exchange is that you are not required to use an accomodator as an intermediary to hold the conversion proceeds.  The two most common uses under the 1033 is destruction and eminent domain.   The courts have been rather generous over the years in determining whether a replacement property is similar and/or related in the service or use to a converted property, so it is best to check with your tax advisor, financial planner or CPA prior to proceeding with a replacement property acquisition.

Condemned property or properties sold pursuant to a threat of eminent domain which is used in a business or trade or held for investment can be replaced with like-kind replacement property applying the similar standards afforded to 1031 exchanges but the 1033 is more restrictive and limited to “Similar in Use” type properties.    For more information on this please click here for the link.  Because 1003 exchanges are not quite as common and each property and owners situation vary it is best to review the details with your financial planner, tax consultant and/or CPA to determine what is the proper type of replacement property before looking.  More info here.
