Tax Professional: PDtax, Certified Public Accountant (CPA) replied 8 months ago

You're right, the transactions will have tax consequences, and they will depend on how the ownership was purchased each time. And it could mean short year tax returns to file.

There are 5 different transactions here, and each will have tax consequences. The analysis of each is beyond what we typically offer here.

I can help via our Premium Service Offering. For an additional fee, I can assist with the entries, and advise about the tax consequences of each.

The prompt for a premium service is not opening on my end. I will ask site management to assist so that I can offer the service I suggest.
