Inquiries may Tax Basis critical to estate and transfer planning Gary A. Hachfeld Regional Ext. Educator A_g Business Management Some of the most costly mistakes in estate and farm transfer planning occur when income tax aspects are ignored. A good estate and transfer plan encompasses good legal, estate tax, and financial outcomes and accomplishes positive income tax results as well. One key issue here is tax or asset basis. Basis is your original cost value in an asset. When you sell an asset, you recover your cost in that asset. You pay tax on the difference between the selling price and the income tax basis or original cost of the asset. Basis is determined differ- ently depending on how you acquired the asset. If you purchased the asset, your basis is the original pur- chase price or cost of the asset minus any deprecia- tion you have claimed against the asset. Assume you purchased a rental home for $50,000. You have depre- ciated it for 3 years for a total of $5,000. Your current basis is now $45,000. If you inherit an asset, your basis is the Fair Market Value (FMV) or the Special Use Valuation (SUV) assigned to the asset as it passed to you from the estate. Assume you inherit 80 acres of land from your mother, valued at $160,000. Your basis is the FMV at the time of her death or $160,000. If you are gifted an asset, your basis is the donor'a basis. The basis has nothing to do with the FMV of the asset at the time it is gifted to you. Assume you are gift- ed stock currently $100,000 with a basis of $25,000. Your is not the- rather the donor's $25,000. The basis of an determine the most cial method to use estate and transfer good rule of thumb is high basis assets and] low basis assets your will.
