What is actual or constructive receipt?

An individual is considered to be in constructive receipt of income when they have the ability to control or utilize the funds, even if they do not have direct possession of them, or if it is guaranteed they will have the ability to draw upon the funds in the future.

Has the buyer of your asset removed all contingencies?

If you’re selling an investment property, have you set up a 1031 accommodator?

Has escrow closed and the fund are at escrow for you to pick up?

Has your deal closed and the funds are now in your bank account?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then it is too late to use the deferred sales trust since constructive or actual receipt has been received. If no, then good news you may still be eligible.

How does a traditional installment sale(IRC 453) aka Seller Carry Back maintain non-constructive or actual receipt?

A “seller carry back,” a “contract sale” or a “note and trust deed” sale are all terms that describe forms of seller financing. If you as a seller decide to lend 100% of the purchase price of your asset to a buyer and you have received $0 actual or constructive receipt then your capital gains tax in a given year is $0. The key is how much cash did you actually or constructively receive? So how does a 1031 exchange help you maintain non-constructive or actual receipt of the proceeds? Since the funds are sent from escrow to the 1031 accommodator you as an individual have received $0 and therefore $0 is due in a given year. If any of the proceeds are sent to you and not 1031 exchanged into the next deal then this is considered ‘boot’ and on this amount, you will owe the capital gains tax in the given year.
