What is the ‘safe harbor’ Parking Arrangement?

10th Sep 2020

The ‘safe harbor’ guidelines are a set of rules provided by the IRS to facilitate like-kind exchanges, such as the 1031 Reverse Exchange, including:

  • An agreement must be entered into between the exchanger and an Exchange Accommodation Titleholder (EAT) within 5 days of the EAT taking title to the property to be parked.
  • The combined time frame that the relinquished property and the replacement property are held in a Parking Arrangement cannot exceed 180 days.
  • In an Exchange Last, identification of the relinquished property must be made no later than 45 days after the EAT acquires the title to the parked replacement property.
