MODULE NO. 3-1 PROPERTY TRANSACTONS: AMOUNT REALIZED & BASIS RULES (All References are to Paragraphs in Text) This is the first of three modules dealing with the transfer of property. The general formula for calculating gain (loss) is: Realized Gain (Loss) = Selling Price minus Adjusted Basis. Once the amount of Realized Gain/Loss is calculated, you must determine how much, if any, of it will be “Recognized” (i.e., how much of the gain will be subject to taxation, or, how much of the loss will be deductible). The general rule is that realized gain is recognized (the “all-inclusive” rule), but there are many exceptions. Assuming the gain/loss is to be “recognized,” the final step in the analysis is to determine whether the transaction is “ordinary” or “capital.” In many instances, capital gains are taxed at a rate lower that the rate on ordinary income. Also, capital losses have more limitations on deductions than ordinary losses. I. FIVE FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPTS IN PROPERTY TRANSACTIONS. (Ref. 10,001 & IRC Sec. 1001) A. Selling Price (Amount Realized) B. Adjusted Basis of the Property C.

    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.
