That can't be right. I originally put my initial basis as 40,000 and was told that part was correct. I came up with 43,400 as my at risk prior to the loss. I was told my loss allowed was incorrect.

I'll look at this and get back to you shortly.

Initial At-Risk $40,000

Interest $ 1,000

I'm not trying to be difficult but those are the exact answers I put on my sheet. The loss of 9850 is not correct. That is the one I was flagged on as incorrect. That is not right.

Hello???
Tax Professional: PDtax, Certified Public Accountant (CPA) replied 9 months ago

I'm not sure what to do for you here. We agree on our answer, but your instructor does not. I suspect that he is missing the at risk adjustment.

I can tell you I got this answer by reviewing the rules, then I found the solution in an answer key for a tax textbook. So I am confident in it.

Thanks for using Just Answer. Kindly rate my assistance to complete your request. Five stars is the best feedback rating.

Can we put another person on this question. My instructor is saying it is not correct.
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Your first answer wasn't even close so I'm not too confident in what I am hearing here.
