Liquidating distribution tax who is jordan todosey dating
If any part of the distribution is greater than a partner's basis in the partnership, then the excess is treated as a capital gain.
If a distribution consists of unrealized receivables or substantially appreciated inventory items, defined as having a FMV exceeding 120% of the partnership's adjusted basis for the property, then the exchange may be treated as a sale or other taxable exchange, unless the partner contributed the property or the distribution was a distributive share or guaranteed payment to a retiring partner or a deceased partner's successor in interest.
The partnership's inside basis of the property carries over to become the partner's basis, thereby reducing the partner's outside basis by the carryover basis.
As with the cash distribution, if the FMV of the property exceeds the partner's outside basis in the partnership, then the partner's interest in the partnership is reduced to 0 and the receiving partner's basis in the distributed property equals his outside basis in the partnership before the distribution.
The property basis that remains after subtracting the outside basis is taxable as a gain. If distributed property also had a secured liability, then the partner assumes the liability which decreases her share of the partnership's liabilities.
The other partners' share of liabilities is also decreased by the deemed distribution.
Generally, the carryover basis of each property will be equal to the partnership's basis in the property, but since the total of the property basis cannot be greater than the partner's outside basis minus any money received, then any excess basis must be allocated among the properties.
There are 2 types of distributions: a current distribution decreases the partner's capital account without terminating it, whereas a liquidating distribution pays the entire capital account to the partner, thereby eliminating the partner's equity interest in the partnership.
If there is any excess basis over the partnership's interest, then the assigned bases must be reduced by the excess.
Any remaining allocable basis is then assigned to the remaining properties, reduced by any excess basis over the partner's remaining interest.
The inside basis is the partnership's tax basis in the individual assets.
The outside basis is the tax basis of each individual partner's interest in the partnership.
