Like-Kind

Refers to the "nature or character" of the property and not to its "grade or quality." That is, real property held for investment or the productive use in a trade or business may generally be exchanged on a tax-deferred basis for other real property. Personal property held for investment or the productive use in a trade or business may generally be exchanged on a tax-deferred basis for other personal property, provided the personal property is of "like kind" or "like class." Professional tax advice should be obtained when planning exchanges.

Like-Kind Exchange

Internal Revenue Code Section 1031 states that "no gain or loss shall be recognized on the exchange of property held for productive use in a trade or business or for investment if such property is exchanged solely for property of like kind which is to be held for productive use in a trade or business or for investment."

LKE Programs

These types of exchanges are available to taxpayers who have an ongoing program of 100 or more properties.  This allows for efficiencies that are not present in normal single asset exchanges such as providing blanket assignments of contract rights to the qualified intermediary and only needing a single Master Exchange Agreement rather than one for each periodic trade.  The guidance for this type of exchange can be found in Rev. Proc. 2009-39 and is used frequently by leasing companies and users of heavy duty machinery and equipment.
