What can you advise me about reinvesting the proceeds on the sale of land?

I need to reinvest the proceeds on the sale of land.

Do not assume that you must re-invest in real estate--you should treat it like money that comes from any other source. Where to invest depends upon your goals and willingness to take risks. If you want security, invest in bonds or certificates of deposit. If you're willing to take risks, stocks have a higher chance of reward.

If the proceeds of the sale of land was your part of your primary residence than you may reinvest it in other land for your primary residence tax free. You could also do a 1030 exchange if the land was for investment purposes and is unimproved and meets specific other guidlines

If you are looking at reinvesting to avoid taxes, it is probably too late. For the gain on the sale of land to be postponed, you would need to to a 1031 exchange set up in advance with a title company and you can't touch the money.
