Consistent Basis Reporting Between Estate and Person Acquiring Property from Decedent

A Proposed Rule Document has been issued by the IRS and proposes regulations which would provide guidance for the requirement that a recipient’s basis in certain property acquired from a descendant be consistent with the value of the property originally determined for Federal tax purposes. The IRS held a public hearing on June 27 for proposed regulations (REG-127923-15) on the estate basis consistency requirements. Follow this link to view the proposed regulation document: REG-127923-15
