Question;Partnerships?Distributions;Sales, and Exchanges;TRUE-FALSE;QUESTIONS?CHAPTER 20;1.;Only a cash basis partnership is concerned with the problem of ?unrealized;receivables.?;2. The;inclusion of accounts receivable of an accrual basis partnership in the;determination of its ?substantially appreciated inventory items? reduces the;chances of the partnership being affected by Section 751.;3. A;partner's interest in a partnership is a capital asset.;4.;When a partner acquires an interest in a partnership by purchase, the basis of;the underlying assets of the partnership must be adjusted to reflect the price;the incoming partner paid for his interest.;5.;Where property for which a special basis adjustment was made because a;partnership interest was purchased is distributed to a nonpurchasing partner;the basis adjustment carries over to the distributee partner.;6.;With respect to the allocation of a basis adjustment to partnership assets, the;total fair market value of all of the assets is compared with the total;adjusted basis of those same assets and the difference between the two amounts;is allocated to each asset based upon its relative adjusted basis.;7. A;partner who receives a current property distribution (other than cash), made;pro rata to all the partners, will not have to report a gain with respect to;the distribution.;8. As;a general rule, property distributed to a partner, not in liquidation of an;interest in the partnership, takes the same basis in the hands of the partner;as it had in the hands of the partnership.;9. If;the partnership agreement is silent but the partners recognize that a retiring;partner had created substantial goodwill for the partnership while a partner, the;retiring partner may report as capital gain so much of the payments for the;partnership interest as are designated as payment ?for goodwill.?;10. A;partnership may elect to adjust the basis of its property merely because one;partner sells an interest to another partner and there is no transfer of any;partnership assets involved.;MULTIPLE;CHOICE QUESTIONS?CHAPTER 20;11.
