I just need some reconfirmation whether I am on the right

I just need some reconfirmation whether I am on the right track for a customer who is selling business.Customer Lists and Covenant to Not Compete during sales are internally generated. Since they are SEC 197 it would be considered capital gain. Is that correct? Can anyone confirm?A discount on early payoff of loan is considered other income and should be listed as other income for taxes. Is that correct?I would appreciate a confirmation on the above two.

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

Customer: My name is ***** ***** and I have questions about 4797. I developed a vineyard which started out as land and I added a well, building, grape vines, etc... Do I place the "Vineyard" in Part I item 2 and use the depreciation i had on the vines, building, etc... in column e? Or do I need to list the buidling, vines, well, etc... all as seperate items? JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: Yes, Bought land in 2008. Added a well in 2009 (in which i claimed a 179 0n and had to recapure some of it because I sold in 2014). Also added a building in 2009 (also in which I claimed 179 and had to recapture). My first question is do i combin land, building, vines, well, etc... as one line in Part I and put all of depriciation over the years of each in columnn e? JA: OK got it.
