White Paper Explains Like Kind Exchange Program

To help improve cash flow, fleets can implement a tax strategy called a like kind exchange (LKE) program.

Internal Revenue Code Section 1031 allows taxpayers to defer federal income taxes on an exchange of like-kind properties held for business or investment purposes.

By taking advantage of a LKE program, a sale of a rental vehicle — that is followed within 180 days by a purchase of another rental vehicle — can qualify as a tax-deferred exchange.
