On September 30, Marsh Corporation, a calendar year taxpayer, sold a parcel of land (basis of $320,000) for an $800,000 note. The note is payable in four installments, with the first payment due next year. Because Marsh did not elect out of the installment method, none of the $480,000 gain is taxed this year.
