Julie, single with AGI of $78,000, sold 80 shares of stock

Customer Question

Julie, single with AGI of $78,000, sold 80 shares of stock for $22,000 on 4/1/13. Determine the amount & character of her gain/loss in the following situations. A. She inherited stock from her father on 9/30/12 when its FMV was $22,800. Her father had bought the stock in 1991 for $1,500. On the date of his death (5/30/12) the stock's FMV was $24,700. On 11/30/12, the stock's FMV was $18,500. The executrix uses the alternative date of death for valuation. B. Same as A except executrix uses date of death for valuation. C. Same as A except she received the stock on 12/15/12. D. She received it as a gift from her mother on 2/10/12 when the FMV was $24,000. Her mother bought the stock on 6/6/06 for $27,000 and paid $1,650 in gift tax upon the transfer. E. Same facts as D, except she repurchased the stock on 4/20/13 for $23,000 and later sold it for $24,400 on 11/20/13. F. Same facts as D, except FMV at 2/10/13 was $21,000 and gift tax was $1,475. G. She bought it for $74,000 on 7/8/08. The stock qualifies as § 1244 stock. H. Same as G, except the stock became worthless on 4/1/13. I. She received it as a gift from her aunt on 1/5/13 when the FMV was $18,000. Her aunt bought the stock on 2/3/04 for $19,500 and paid $1,000 in gift tax upon the transfer. J. Same as I, except her aunt had bought the stock for 16,000. K. If the assets sold were personally owned bottles of wine, instead of stock, how would this change your answer to J? L. Assume the asset sold was a patent obtained by Julie on her invention and the cost of development from June to December 2012 was $6,000. M. Same as L, except the asset is a copyright on a book.

Hi, I’m Josie a moderator for this topic. It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.

I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still needing assistance from an other one of our professionals?

Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like for us to close your question.

Also remember that JustAnswer has a multitude of categories to help you with all your needs from Pet to Legal.
