Many real estate investors in Pennsylvania have had an unpleasant surprise when they learn that the Commonwealth has never recognized the 1031 Tax deferred exchanges for Pennsylvania income tax purposes. After years of discussing it, that has finally changed.

At this point, it appears that exchanges started in 2022 will still fall under the old regime.
