Morgan contributed $60,000 cash and land with a basis of $18,000 and a fair market value of $40,000. Kristen contributed equipment with a basis of $42,000 and a value of $100,000. Kristen’s tax basis in her interest is $42,000; Morgan’s tax basis is $78,000. ________ contributing $200,000 in cash and Tom contributing land (basis of $100,000, fair market value of $140,000) and inventory (basis of $40,000, fair market value of $60,000).

In a liquidating distribution, a partnership must distribute all of its property to all of its partners. ________ 8. A distribution can be “proportionate” even if only one partner receives assets from the partnership. ________ 9. For income tax purposes, proportionate and disproportionate distributions from a partnership are treated similarly. ________ 10.
