Determine the amount distributed to Bain, assuming Short is unable to satisfy the deficiency.As a result, the tax effects of a partnership that makes liquidating distributions only impacts the partners who receive them.To be taxed as a liquidating distribution, however, a partner's interest in the partnership must terminate.
Therefore, partners who have held an interest in the partnership for more than one year as of the date of a liquidating distribution will pay lower rates of tax on the gain than they do on a partnership's operating profit.When the total amount of cash distributed is more than a partner's basis in her partnership interest, the difference in the two amounts is a gain.A loss results when the liquidating distribution is less than the partner's basis in the partnership.Regardless of the amount of cash you receive, your basis in the distributed property is never less than zero.If your basis is zero, this means the amount you eventually sell the property for is all taxable gain.Prepare a statement of partnership liquidation, indicating (a) the sale of assets and division of loss, (b) the payment of liabilities, (c) the receipt of the deficiency (from the appropriate partner), and (d) the distribution of cash.
