TOTAL $110 $400
Monica’s outside basis is $44, and Rachel’s outside basis is $66.

Monica and Rachel if the partnership sells all of its assets to
Chandler for $400?
The partnership will recognize a gain of $290
Rachel 60% = $174

Characterization of gains
Real estate- Sec 1250
Inventory - Ordinary
A/R - Ordinary

(ii) What are the consequences to Monica and Rachel if they sell their
partnership interests to Chandler for $160 and $240, respectively?
What difference would it make, if any, if Chandler paid them with
a note (with adequate interest) due in three years?
Rachel and Monica are treated as having their interest sold for the
cash they receive
Their gain would be allocated 40% and 60% respectively
The ordinary gain from selling Inventory, A/R, and depreciation
must be subtracted from the gain to figure out the capital gain
