1065 Partnership -- A client has sold property (rental) in
1065 Partnership -- A client has sold property (rental) in 2016 that was recorded as an Asset. It has been depreciated for a few years. (purchased in 2012) He has had a gain on that sale. I have used the asset entry worksheet to record that sale including expenses and the K-1 to the partner reflects only a small part on line 9c and the remainder is reflected on line 10 1231 gain. I have made sure that part III shows on the form 4797. Will this client be able to use capital gain tax rates on all of this gain or will he have to pay tax as ordinary income on at least a portion. I'm confused. If it should all be long term gain how do I make that happen in my tax program? I am using pro-series.

This is a Tax question. I am a US citizen. I have the
Hello,This is a Tax question.I am a US citizen. I have the possibility of receiving income from the sale of a property in Poland.This property was owned by an uncle of mine who died in the war and let it to my father who was also in the war.After the war ended and then coming to the US (1946) my father pursued this property.There was a court case in Poland i 1948/49 where my father was declared the legal heir.When attempting to put this in his name the communists in Poland said... Hey we need this building for government purposes. My fathers attorneys persisted but never got the building returned.My father died in 1978. Never mentioned this to me... ever. He left everything to my mother who passed in Nov 2015.My more transfered her rights to the building to me i 2010.Now, good news, After working for return with several Polish lawyers we are at the doorstep of it being returned.A major developer has made an offer to take over the returneffort. He will pay me "option" money at signing and every quarter until the return is complete. He will pay ALL expenses except for my own (they come out of the option money) and he is depositing the purchase amount into a US ESCROW company in their Poland office.My question is tax related. When a Holocaust property is returned, the basis for taxes is... the value on the day of return. So, no taxes. However, the option money is where my question is. Do I declare the option money as income or as part of the value /basis of the returned property?Note: IRS publication 525 and IRS Manual - 21.6.6 Specific Claims and Other Issues have references specific to this area.Thank you,Steven

I am trying to calculate a rental property tax basis
I am trying to calculate a rental property tax basis for depreciation purposes. Could you please confirm my assumptions/calculations or advise me if this is incorrect.1. A single family residence was bought by a married couple in 1997 for $275,000. The value of the land at the time was $96,600.2. Over the years the couple went through a divorce and the husband bought the wife's share for $229,000. The value of the land at the time of the buyout was $283,000. At the time of the payoff the house was valued at $795,000. In other words, the land's value is 36% of the payoff amount.3. The house was placed into service and now serves as a rental property.Here is how I accounted for the house basis:$137,500 (Half of the original purchase price of the house, since the husband owned half of the house at the time it was initially bought) – 48,000 (half of the value of the land, the husband's portion of the land) + 229,000 (the wife's payoff) – $82,440 (0.36*229,000,the value of the land at the time of the payoff).Thus, the tax basis is $236,060.Please note that this calculation omits any additional and improvements, or losses.Are my assumptions correct?Also, if a rental house if later sold, I assume that the taxpayer will have be able to claim the asset as section 1231. Am I correct?
