I had some wood flooring installed last year for $3000 in a rental property that I was staying in at the time. Does this count for a federal sales tax exemption? The Turbotax help guide lists 'building materials for major home improvements' as an appropriate exemption but then it indicates not to include "items purchased for your business or rental property" as exemptions.

I used my single member LLC to own 51% of a service company
Hello Pearl, I used my single member LLC to own 51% of a service company LLC with a 49% partner. With were both the main individuals performing the services, but I was the managing member. I sold my entire 51% to him on Jan. 29th 2016 for $1.00 as our partnership and personal relationship was deteriorating. The main reason for the deterioration was because we were about to be acquired, but I thought it better for me to get out than deal with the hostility. The company that was to acquire us had sent us a term sheet for $302k for 51% ownership. When I sold my shares, the company withdrew their deal. That said, I wanted to see if I could insert a loss based on the FMV (deducting my proportionate share of our short-term loan and credit card liabilities as well as some computer equipment we agreed I could take with me). My 2016 schedule K-1 only shows the guaranteed payments and computer equipment value, totaling $18K and clearly nothing within section L of the K1. Even if I reduced the FMV by 25%-35%, I would still be at a ~$200k loss. Please note that I do not believe Form 8308 was submitted by my former partner's accountant as I do not believe our operating agreement mention anything regarding unrealized receivables, although I put in a significant amount of sweat equity since mid-2014 for comparable living wage rates.JA: The Accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else the Accountant should be aware of?Customer: I don't believe so. I think I tried to be as detailed as possible.

We have a question about gifting to our children. The money we distributed to them was out of our IRA. We were told this gifting is tax-free. Do we have to pay taxes on this money when it is supposed to be tax free if within the exemption amount, which it is? All of my income is from MO. LAGERS, Social security and my IRA is there a credit Allowed for this Gift to my Children that would reduce my income tax.
