CFS Jets — Trade and Like-Kind Exchanges

CFS also assists clients with Like-Kind Exchanges.

A Like-Kind exchange is defined as a “transaction or series of transactions that allows for the disposal of an asset and the acquisition of another replacement asset without generating a current tax liability from the sale of the first asset.” At CFS Jets, we can help you navigate through the like-kind exchange process.

The Internal Revenue Code states that a gain or loss is not recognized when an aircraft, held for productive use in trade, business or investment, is exchanged for like-kind property. These exchanges are sometimes referred to as tax-free, tax-deferred or nontaxable exchanges. There are, however, certain restrictions and statutory requirements that must be met for an exchange to be eligible. In addition, timing is key in meeting the regulatory requirements.
