My tax clients live in California which is a community property state. I can adjust the basis on all of their rental properties - how do I change the basis and start a new depreciation schedule based on the new basis?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Enter the date of death as the disposition date on the Asset Entry Worksheet. Then leave the sale price BLANK. That will stop the depreciation for the 'old' Basis.
Then add a new Asset Entry Worksheet, using the date of death as the "placed in service" date and the Fair Market Value on the date of death as the Basis.
For any future readers, that process is ONLY for clients that are in a Community Property State. A non-Community Property State has a bit of a different process.
Husband and wife bought rental property in Virginia (NOT a community property state) $39,500
Husband died in 2018 FMV $92,000
wife sold property in 2019 $115,000 sales price
where do i enter the basis step up in proseries?
