Karen is a single taxpayer and transfers property with a basis of $130,000 and a fair market value of $65,000 to the Southland Corp in exchange for shares of section 1244 stock. As the transfer qualifies under section 351, Karen takes a $130,000 basis in the Southland stock. In the current year, Karen sells the Southland stock for $40,000. What are the consequences of the sale to Karen? Explain. Thanks.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com June 4, 2020, 12:01 am ad1c9bdddf
