1. Determine the amount and character of gain or loss a partner recognizes in a nonliquidating partnership distribution.
5 A liquidating distribution is one distribution or a series of distributions that terminates a partner's entire interest in the partnership. All other distributions, including those that substantially reduce a partner's interest, are governed by the non-liquidating distribution rules. [i.e. current distribution]

6 Recognition of Gain. A current distribution that does not involve Sec. 751 assets results in no recognition of loss by Ptshp. Partners recognize gain only if they receive money in excess of basis. Here, money includes cash, deemed cash from reductions in a partner's share of liabilities and the FMV of marketable securities if the securities. See Sec. 731(a),(b),(c)
7 Nonliquidating Distributions . While a current distribution causes gain or loss to be recognized only in the conditions listed above, the distribution may trigger recognition of previously unrecognized pre-contribution gain or loss. This recognition of the remaining precontribution gain or loss can occur if contributed asset is distributed to any partner (other than contributing partner) within 7 yrs. It also may occur if the contributing partner receives a distribution with a FMV in excess of his adjusted basis in his partnership interest. In this case, the remaining pre-contribution gain on any asset he contributed to the partnership in the preceding 7 years may have to be recognized.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
