  1. I bought a rental for 20,400 in 1998.

  2. it appraised for $115,000 in 2000.

  3. took 27,000 to get it in great shape (I lived in it for a short time and made it way to nice for a rental)

4.it has a mortgage for $37,000

  1. I would like to sell it and roll the money into a new duplex.

With a purchase price of 20.4K and a 27K fix up added to you basis plus closing costs and costs of the loan you could be looking at 65K of gain. Debt relief is figured in in an exchange but you may have more debt. If you did not cash out you could do an installment sale and spead the tax out. You also need to look at the lenght of time you lived there and if you could claim the exclusion from tax gain on your home. Start with your tax advisor to explore your effects each way.

Needs to be an iinvestment property to do 1031 exchanges. Check carefully as to what affect if any your having living in it, if any will have on your ability to use this. If your property qualifies, your benefit is your taxable consequence is deferred it totally deferred. Note, the part where you have so many days to identify a replacement property, if you qualify. Best to get it identified FIRST, so you don’t run out of time.
