LO.3, 7, 9, 10 Suzy contributed business-related assets valued at $360,000 (basis of $200,000) in exchange for her 40% interest in the Suz-Anna Partnership.

The partnership used the available funds to acquire equipment costing $200,000 and to fund current operating expenses. The partnership agreement provides that depreciation will be allocated 80% to Bryan and 20% to Cody. All other items of income and loss will be allocated equally between the partners.Upon liquidation of the partnership, property will be distributed to the partners in accordance with their capital account balances. Any partner with a negative capital account must contribute cash in the amount of the negative balance to restore the capital account to $0.In its first year, the partnership reported an ordinary loss (before depreciation) of $80,000 and depreciation expense of $36,000.

LO.9, 10, 12, 17 The BCD Partnership plans to distribute cash of $20,000 to partnerBrad at the end of the tax year. The partnership reported a loss for the year, and Brad?s share of the loss is $10,000.

Jasmine has personally guaranteed a $10,000 debt of the LLC that is allocated to her as a recourse debt. Her share of the LLC?s nonrecourse debt is $30,000.This debt cannot be treated as qualified nonrecourse debt.

Identify the Code sections under which losses are suspended.59. LO.13 Burgundy, Inc., and Violet are equal partners in the calendar year BV LLC. Burgundy uses a fiscal year ending April 30, and Violet uses a calendar year. Burgundy receives an annual guaranteed payment of $100,000 for use of capital contributed byBurgundy. BV?s taxable income (after deducting the payment to Burgundy, Inc.) is $80,000 for 2013 and $90,000 for 2014.a.
