Subsequent losses eliminate the shareholder’s stock basis and reduce a portion of the debt basis. The S corporation repays \$20,000 of the \$100,000 loan when the shareholder’s basis in the loan is \$75,000. The shareholder must report a capital gain in the amount of \$5,000 on the receipt of \$20,000, since 25% of the face value was not supported by debt basis [\$20,000 x (\$100,00 - \$75,000)  \$100,000].
