Can you help me understand this?
Mail, a partner in the MB Partnership, receives a proportionate, nonliquidating distribution of property having a fair market value of $16,000 and a partnership basis of $23,000. Mail's basis in the partnership is $10,000 before the distribution. In this situation, Mail will take a $10,000 basis in the property, and his basis in the partnership interest is reduced to zero.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com June 3, 2020, 10:21 pm ad1c9bdddf
