Lane :

Hi,

Lane :

No the K-1 is for reporting the distributive share of an owner's income, losses, etc.

Lane :

Now that the owner is receiving installment sale payments, you'll end up on schedule D of the 1040

Lane :

From that page: Generally, you will use Form 6252 to report installment sale income from casual sales of real or personal property during the tax year. You also will have to report the installment sale income on Schedule D (Form 1040), Capital Gains and Losses, or Form 4797, or both. SeeSchedule D (Form 1040) and Form 4797

Hello Lane,
Thank you for your reply. I agree with you about Form 6252. But I wander how tax preparer did 2011 Personal Tax Return. Is it right, if it's done only Form 4797 (from K-1 and K-1 is final)?


I appreciate you

Expert:  Lane replied 10 months ago.

Yes, you're spot on.

...could have been the final partial year and Still received the first installment payment that year.

Lane
Customer: replied 10 months ago.


I asked one more question and don't see it. I repeat. How use form 6252 and show that only 50% of installment payments belong the ex-partner.


Thank you

Expert:  Lane replied 10 months ago.

Sorry,

You'll will just report the amounts received by the taxpayer .. what matters is the amuunt actually received, rather that whatever propertion it may be of any total total transaction.


For example, for basis and other information in section I you will only report HIS/HER proportionate piece.

GROSS PROFIT AND CONTRACT PRICE, (for example) should only include the taxpayer's proportion.

Gross profit PERCENTAGE however, on line 19, will be that taxpayer's gross profit profit divided by that taxpayers's portion (FROM lines 16 and 18) of the contract price.

Make sense?
