I am interested in following discussion threads re matters involving disposition of rental and investment properties pursuant to divorce.Because of the possibility of beneficial section 1031 tax treatment, I wish to follow discussions about conversion of residential primary homeowner property in part or full to rental property and tax treatment upon sale after 2 years or longer.

I frequently am asked to provide consultations on these subjects when involved with divorce financial analysis. Many couples  want to use the 5 year period post divorce for real property transactions that can still benefit from the section 121 marital exclusion on capital gains.  That is, they plan around this window.

@Kathleen Nemetz , Welcome to the site.  You'll see in the forums there are several avenues where sec 121 and sec 1031 have potential confluence and synergy with each other - particularly in divorce cases where you speak.  I'd be happy to speak with you in private also should you have any specific questions.
