Correct Marks: 1Jennifer Judd gives her son, Jim, Section 1245 property. The property has an adjusted basis of $11,000 to Jennifer, who has taken $2,000 in depreciation expense. Jim uses the property for three years, takes depreciation of $3,000 and then sells it for $14,000. What amount of gain must Jennifer recognize and what amount of gain must Jim recognize?Choose one answer. a. $2,000 Section 1231 gain; $3,000 Section 1231 gain b. $0; $5,000 ordinary income and $1,000 Section 1231 gac. $2,000 ordinary income; $6,000 Section 1231 gain d. $0; $3,000 ordinary income and $3,000 Section 1231 gaThere is no recapture when Jennifer gives the property to her son, Jim. Jim, however, will carry over the recapture potential of $2,000 and will also have recapture potential of $3,000 from the time that he owned it. The total of $5,000 is less than the realized gain of $6,000 ($14,000 - $8,000 basis); therefore, $5,000 is recaptured as ordinary income and the remaining $1,000 is Section 1231 gain.
