Kristen and Harrison are equal partners in the KH Partnership. The partners formed the partnership five years ago by contributing cash. Prior to any distributions Harrison has a basis in his partnership interest of \$28,500. On December 31, KH makes a proportionate operating distribution of \$41,500 cash to Harrison. What is the amount and character of Harrison's recognized gain or loss and what is his remaining basis in KH?

Multiple Choice

• \$0 gain, \$0 basis.

• \$13,000 capital gain, \$0 basis.

• \$13,000 capital loss, \$0 basis.

• \$13,000 capital gain, \$28,500 basis.

Ans:

Harrison basis in partnership interest prior to distriution : \$28,500

Operating Distribution to Harrison on 31 December : \$41,500

Capital Gain for Harrison : Operating Distribution - Basis in partnership interest

: \$41,500 - \$28,500 = \$13,000

His remaining basis in KH : \$0 (because he has already adjusted his basis from Operating Distribution)

So Correct answer is option B.

\$13,000 capital gain, \$0 basis.
