Problem 1

Matthew contributed equipment valued at $36,000 to Construction Limited Partnership (CLP) in 2021, in exchange for a 3% limited partnership interest. His share of CLP income and losses for the year were: Interest $1,000, Dividends $600, Capital gains $1,800, and an Ordinary loss of $8,650. CLP had no liabilities.

  • Initial basis: $40,000 (equipment adjusted basis)
  • Allowed losses: ($8,650) (ordinary loss)

Prior at-risk:

  • Initial basis: $40,000
  • Interest: $1,000
  • Dividends: $600
  • Capital gains: $1,800 Total: $43,400

Ending at-risk:

  • Prior at-risk: $43,400
  • Ordinary loss: ($8,650) Total: $34,750

Thus, the ending at-risk amount for Matthew is $34,750.

Problem 2

Ben worked 1,500 hours as a tax consultant and 500 hours as a real estate agent during the current year. His wife, the other employee, worked 350 hours in the real estate business. Ben earned $60,000 as a tax consultant, while the couple incurred a $18,000 loss in the real estate business.
