Along with tax deferral, other potential benefits of a 721 Exchange Option include:

How a 721 Exchange Works After an investor invests in a

Delaware Statutory Trust property, and the property goes full cycle, investors can choose to participate in a 721 exchange. This means the DST investment will be absorbed by a larger Real Estate Investment Trust Operating Partnership. Operating Partnerships are the entities through which REITs typically acquire and own their properties. Once the DST property is absorbed into the REIT, the investor’s interest will get converted into Operating Partnership Units (OPs). This is all done on a tax- deferred basis utilizing the IRC Section 721 exchange.

• The ability to realize the economic benefits of the REIT’s entire property portfolio (including distributions of potential monthly operating income, potential capital appreciation and property diversification*) • Liquidity options by partial conversion of OP Units to REIT shares (investor can “peel off” what they need and pay the taxes on just that amount)

• The ability to fully divide OP Units for estate planning among their heirs

• The ability to provide heirs with a step up in tax basis, just as they would have been able to with their individual property.

The main caveat to the Section 721 exchange is that once an investor proceeds with the exchange, they lose the ability to continue 1031 exchanging and deferring taxes. They now only have the option to convert their Operating Partnership Units to REIT shares and pay their capital gains tax. Therefore, investors who are in the midst of estate planning and know that upon their passing, their heirs will receive a step up in tax basis, which will eliminate the capital gains tax, often consider the Section 721 exchange. Which of these 1031 exchange alternatives is best? Every case is specific, so it’s best to consult a professional who can recommend the best 1031 exchange options based on the investor’s unique situation.
