Delayed Exchange

n. Pursuant to IRS Code sec. 1031, funds from one property sale are placed in binding trust for up to 180 days while a property seller acquires another property. This exchange puts off capital gain taxes and is sometimes referred to as a "Starker," named after the man who won an IRS lawsuit after using this method.
