d)assume this was a liquidating distribution, what is Benny's basis in the land after the distribution?

Answer #1

a

Distribution is not taxable as distribution is not in excess of basis in partnership. Partner’s outside basis before distribution is $250. Partnership land has $130 basis to partnership. Distribution reduces partner’s outside basis by $130.

b

Outside basis = Basis before distribution – basis in land = $250 - $130 = $120

c

In non-liquidating distribution basis in land received is equal to basis in it for partnership before distribution. Thus, basis in land is $130 to partner.

d

In liquidating distribution no gain or loss is recognized. Basis in land is equal to partner’s outside basis in partnership before distribution.

It makes basis in land at $250 to partner.
