Chapter 18: Corporations: Organization and Capital Structure Homework Submission
32 a. Allie would have a gain of $350,000 under 357(c). However, under 357(b) Allie has boot of $475,000 due to the $100,000 cash that she borrows from Broadbill giving the lender a second mortgage. Because of this borrowed cash all liabilities that Allie has acquired are mnow considered boot, and she has boot of $475,000 which she must now claim. Consequently she has realized gain of $650,000 ($775,000 - $125,000 = stock of $300,000 + assumption of liabilities $475,000
basis of land $125,000). Gain is recognized to the extent of the boot received of $475,000. Unfortunately for Allie, rule 357(b) predominates over rule 357(c). b. If Allie had not taken the $100,000 cash then the liabilities she assumed would not have been considered boot, and she would not have had as large of a gain to claim. Also, Broadbill would not have had a second mortgage, so would have assumed less, liabilities. 35 a. Jane recognizes income of $35,000 for the services that she renders to Osprey Corporation. b.

The $800,000 building costs are applied against the cash borrowed and the $200,000 in inventory is also applied against the remaining $200,000 of the $1 million in cash so Red Corporation has zero basis in the building and the inventory. 39 a. Sam has an ordinary loss of $50,000 and then a long-term capital loss of $40,000. b. Kara would have a long-term capital loss of $40,000 because she is not the original holder she would not qualify for the ordinary loss treatment. 42.
