Specific Time Frames

  • With the close of the relinquished property, you have 45 days to identify in writing the properties you intend to purchase and 180 days (or the due date for your tax return – whichever is earlier) to complete the acquisition of one or more of those properties.  In addition, the 45 day identification period and the 180 day exchange period are calendar days.  If the 45th day or 180th day falls on a weekend or holiday, the deadlines still apply.  There are no extensions for Saturdays, Sundays or legal holidays
