Problem 33 (Text: Ch. 6, 8) Margaret Chudleigh has come to you with details of the following transactions. (1) She gave her spouse 200 common shares of Fly-By-Night Airways Ltd. which had cost her $15 per share in 1980. The fair market value of the shares on the date of the gift was $45 per share. The shares have historically paid dividends of approximately $3 per share per year. (2) She legally transferred, for no proceeds, title to an antique desk to her son, age 15. The desk was valued at approximately $60,000 at the date of the transfer. Margaret had inherited the desk from her grandmother in 1983.

(3) She loaned $120,000 to her sister to allow her sister to start up a day-care operation. Her sister did not invest any additional funds in the business.
