Midland 1031

I am really proud of the job we have done helping real estate investors save millions of dollars in taxes.

Midland 1031 was formed by Dave Owens, a CPA on Sanibel Island. In its first full year of operation, the company performed 47 exchanges. The company grew rapidly, and hit the 1,000 exchanges per year mark for the first time in 2005. Currently in 2017, the company has solid growth and continues to be an educational and service leader in the real estate community.

A 1031 Tax Exchange allows real estate investors to defer federal and state taxes on the sale of investment real estate as long as proceeds are invested into additional investment real estate of greater value, as well as following the IRS 45 day and 180 day timing rules. There is no other deferral in the federal tax code like 1031. The proposed Republican tax law changes does not change the current 1031 rules.

With the help of Senior Manager Theresa Knower, we have helped thousands of investors navigate through the process of exchanges, start to finish, and have earned the reputation as the gold standard among Qualified Intermediaries”. Knower is a veteran in the industry, speaking both locally and nationally on the topic of 1031 exchanges as well as working directly with her staff to complete exchanges.
