Related Exchanges and Boot, Part 1

The questions here were received from interested 1031 exchangers visiting my website. I have chosen to leave the questions intact with their ambiguity, shorthand writing and misspellings so as not to act on the assumption as to what when unclear the questioner meant.

Related Exchanges and Boot, Part 1

Hello, \n\nWe are selling a 4 plex ($1.36 million) which we did not live in and buying a triplex (equal sq footage per apt ) (1.85 million) which we will live in one and rent the other two.\nWe were told we would have to buy something more expensive so we would not have to pay taxes on the 4 plex.\n

You’ll need to determine the square footage of the unit you want to live in, and what percentage of the three units your new home unit represents, by square footage. Based on these percentages, the price of the two units you are renting need to be $1.36 million. If they are not, you will owe taxes on the difference, i.e. two units are worth $1.1M, so taxable is $260,000.
