Ac553 Question 10-1 Distinguish between realized gains and losses and recognized gains and losses. You will always have a loss or a gain due to an exchange transaction. One the transaction is completed the corresponding amount will be recorded on your income statement. Recognition exists only in the context of tax laws, in some cases the exchange transaction will be excluded under IRC Section 1031. Problem 10-47 On April 18, 2010, Jane Juniper purchased 30 shares of Bryan Corp. stock for $210, and on September 29, 2010, she purchased 90 additional shares for $900. On November 28, 2010, she sold 48 shares, which could not be specifically identified, for $576 and on December 8, 2010, she sold another 25 shares for $188. What is her recognized gain or loss? $210/30=$7 per share - April 18, 2010 $900/90=$10 per share - September 29, 2010 I will use FIFO to calculate the recognized gain or loss: November 28, 2010 – Sold 48 shares for $576, the cost basis was $390 (30*$7 plus 18*$10) therefore the total gain was $186.00
