When the relinquished property is transferred to the buyer, the taxpayer has often not yet chosen the new property he or she wants to acquire as a replacement. When that is the case, a deferred exchange is necessary. The taxpayer has 45 days to identify the replacement property. The transfer of the replacement property must close within 180 days of the transfer of the relinquished property.
