I:5-34 Basis of Property Received as a Gift. Doug receives a duplex as a gift from his uncle. The uncle’s basis for the duplex and land is $90,000. At the time of the gift, the land and building have FMVs of $40,000 and $80,000, respectively. No gift tax is paid by Doug’s uncle at the time of the gift. a. To determine gain, what is Doug’s basis for the land? 40,000/120,000 = 0.3333 X 90,000 = 30,000 b. To determine gain, what is Doug’s basis for the building? 80,000/120,000 = .6666 X 90,000 = 60,000 c.
