Looking a Gift Horse in the Eye, a S 1031 exchange.

Looking a Gift Horse in the Eye.

Walter rarely sees his uncle George because George is a devoted world traveler. On January 15,2011, Walter received an envelope that George had mailed to him from Singapore on December 13,2010. The envelope contained a Christmas card from George and 1,000 shares of stock of lavender, inc. in October 2011 Walter decides to pay off credit card debt and buy a new car so he sells the stock for 45,000. In early April 2012, the accountant who is preparing Walter’s tax return tells him that he needs to know his uncle’s adjusted basis for the stock and the amount of any gift tax paid. Since Walter is unable to contact his uncle by April 15,2012, he requests a filling extension on form 4868. He sends a letter to uncle George requesting this information and thanking him for the gift. Walter is able to ascertain from a stock service that during the past 10 years the stock price has ranged from $10 to $50 per share. On August 10,2012, uncle George unexpectedly calls from Florence. He says he has not filed any type of federal tax return in years. He thinks he won the stock in a poker game in Monaco about 15 years ago when another player used it to cover a $15,000 bet. Walter wants to file his tax return by the October 15,2012 due date. He does not think is a good idea to tell the return preparer how his uncle acquired the stock or about his uncle not filling income returns. Consequently, he tells the accountant that his uncle’s basis for the stock is 15,000 and that that no gift taxes were paid. The return is completed and filed with a schedule D reporting a long-term capital gain of $30,000 from the sale of the lavender stock.

Discuss the key factors that should be considered when determining gains and loss on the sale of stock.

Evaluate Walter’s actions in terms of ethics.

Discuss the consequences (positive and negative) of Walter’s actions.

On October 2,2011,Roy properly identifies as office building that he would like to acquire. Unfortunately, on November,10,2011, the property selected is withdrawn from the market.
