Hi & thanks for using our service. I'll do my best to give you a complete & accurate answer. Please ask me to clarify anything you don't understand.
It depends upon where the property came from. Was it a purchase from an independent party with the consideration being the assumption of the note.?
Then you record the asset at cost.
Which sounds like the amount of the note assumed.
Ok, that's what made sense to me.....but I needed to be sure. Thanks!
OK, no problem; be sure to do your building vs land allocation if that applies.
ie. it is improved property
I split the two 50/50 since the assumption amount was so small.
Please remember to rate my response; if you have any follow-up questions I'd be pleased to answer them.
Usually we use the real estate tax assessment
to get the ratio between land & building

you might have more to depreciate that way?
