The FEA Association

Providing Leadership.  Setting Standards.  Educating Consumers.

The Federation of Exchange Accommodators (FEA) is the only national trade association organized to represent professionals who conduct like-kind exchanges under Internal Revenue Code §1031. Members include Qualified Intermediaries (QIs), their primary tax and legal counsel, and affiliated industries (TIC sponsors, banks, real estate brokers, title companies, settlement/escrow agents, etc.).

  • Provide tools, resources and legislative updates to member companies
  • Educate consumers on effectively using 1031 exchanges to defer capital gains tax
  • Drive legislation to ensure appropriate consumer and industry protection
  • Work closely with professions affiliated with the 1031 industry including realtor estate professionals, attorneys, CPAs, DST and NNN Broker/Dealers, escrow agents, and financial institutions
