Special tax provisions, however, apply with respect to the calculation of gain on property acquired before June 1, 1971. Gain on property acquired before June 1, 1971, is calculated by subtracting the adjusted basis of the property or the alternative basis of the property, whichever is greater, from the value of cash or property received. Also, no gain or loss is realized on the sale or disposition of property acquired prior to June 1, 1971, if the value of the cash or property received is greater than the property’s adjusted basis, but less than its alternative basis. These special rules also apply if you acquired the property you sold or disposed of by gift, and the donor acquired the property before June 1, 1971. For each asset you must also report straight-line depreciation, unless not using an optional accelerated depreciation method. You need the amount of straight-line depreciation to take advantage of Pennsylvania’s Tax Benefit Rule when you sell the asset. See the PA PIT Guide for the Tax Benefit Rule. ADJUSTED BASIS It is the cost basis of the purchased property plus allowable expenses of acquisition adjusted as follows: 1. Upward by the cost of capital improvements to the property, contributions of capital and gain incurred, made, or recognized during your entire holding period; and 2. Downward by the annual deductions for depreciation, amortization, obsolescence, or cost depletion (but not percentage depletion) allowed or allowable and recoveries of capital (such as property damage awards, casualty insurance proceeds, and corporate “return of capital” distributions) received during your entire holding period. ALTERNATIVE BASIS Your alternative basis for property is calculated in the same manner as you calculate its adjusted basis, except for the following differences: ● You use the property’s fair market value as of June 1, 1971, as the original (unadjusted) basis of the property rather than its original cost or other original basis used to calculate your adjusted basis for the property. ● You adjust upward only for the cost of capital improvements to the property, contributions of capital and gain incurred, made, or recognized after May 31, 1971. ● You adjust downward only for the annual deductions for depreciation, amortization, obsolescence, or cost depletion (but not percentage depletion) allowed or allowable and recoveries of capital received after May 31, 1971. DETERMINATION OF FAIR MARKET VALUE AS OF JUNE 1, 1971 The starting point for calculating the alternative basis for property is its fair market value as of June 1, 1971. There are four ways to determine fair market value as of June 1, 1971: 1. The listed security method. 2. The appraisal method. 3. The proration method. 4. The deemed value method. An explanation of each of these methods follows. LISTED SECURITY If you acquired the property prior to June 1, 1971, and it was listed on an established market or exchange on June 1, 1971, or the week preceding June 1, 1971, you must use the listed security method. If the property was listed, its fair market value on June 1, 1971 is: ● The opening price on Tuesday, June 1, 1971; ● The price of the last sale during the preceding week, if not traded on Tuesday, June 1, 1971; or ● The average of the high and low price or the average of the bid and asked quotations on Tuesday, June 1, 1971, whichever is appropriate, if not traded on June 1, 1971, and during the week preceding June 1, 1971. APPRAISAL You may use an appraisal of current fair market value made on or about June 1, 1971, or a subsequent appraiscal of fair market value as of June 1, 1971, if the following conditions are met: ● A copy of the appraisal is attached to your return. www.revenue.pa.gov RETURN TO PAGE 1 REV-1742 NEXT PAGE PRINT 1 ● The appraisal specifically excludes the value of any improvements made after May 31, 1971. ● The appraisal is bona fide, independent, and written by a competent appraiser of recognized standing and ability. PRORATION METHOD PROPERTY FORMULA If no adjustment to original basis is required to determine the property’s adjusted basis for Pennsylvania income tax purposes, the fair market value of an asset as of June 1, 1971, may be determined in accordance with the following property value formula: Property’s Value as of 6/1/71 = Current Fair Market Value of Property x A + Historic Cost of Property x B 1. A is a fraction. The numerator is the number of full calendar months the property was held prior to June 1, 1971. The denominator is the number of full calendar months in the taxpayer’s entire holding period for the property. 2. B is a fraction. The numerator is the number of full calendar months the property was held after May 31, 1971. The denominator is the number of full calendar months in the taxpayer’s entire holding period for the property; and 3. The Historic Cost of Property is its purchase price if acquired by purchase or its fair market value on the date of death of the decedent if acquired by inheritance. NOTE: For all calculations involving any proration method, observe the following rules: ● Round all decimals to four digits. ● For purposes of determining holding periods, a calendar month begins on the first day of the month and ends on the last day of the month. If purchase or acquisition occurs on any day other than the first day of the month, the holding period begins on the first day of the following month. If disposition occurs on any day other than the last day of the month, the holding period ends on the last day of the preceding month. EXAMPLE: Allen purchased land for $1,000 on April 1, 1964. On December 31, 1987, Allen sold the land for $15,000. Allen held the land for 285 full calendar months. 86 months were before June 1, 1971, and 199 months were after May 31, 1971. Using the formula above, the June 1, 1971 Property Value is $5,224, calculated as follows: ($15,000 x 86 mos. = $4,526) + 285 mos. ($1,000 x 199 mos. = $698) 285 mos. $4,526 + 2 $698 = $5,224 PROPERTY FORMULA ADJUSTMENTS If adjustments to original basis are required to determine the property’s adjusted basis for PA purposes, you may also be required to make additional computations to adjust your current fair market value and historic cost data before using the property value formula: CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS If the only required adjustment to original basis to determine the property’s adjusted basis for PA purposes is for the cost of capital improvements to the property, you will need to adjust your current fair market value data before using it in the property value formula. You also need to compute the June 1, 1971 value of improvements made before June 1, 1971, using the improvement value formula. Use the following steps to make the adjustments and computations: Step 1. The historic cost, holding period and current fair market value of each improvement to property made during your holding period must be separately determined. Step 2. For each improvement to property made before June 1, 1971, use the following improvement value formula to compute its fair market value as of June 1, 1971. Improvement’s Value as of June 1, 1971 = Current Fair Market Value of Improvement x C + Historic Cost of Improvement x D ● C is a fraction. The numerator is the number of full calendar months from the date of the improvement to June 1, 1971. The denominator is the number of full calendar months in the taxpayer’s entire holding period for the improvement. ● D is a fraction. The numerator is the number of full calendar months the improvement was held after May 31, 1971. The denominator is the number of full calendar months in the taxpayer’s entire holding period for the improvement. Step 3. Subtract the total fair market value of all improvements to property (including improvements made after May 31, 1971) from the current fair market value of the property to determine its fair market value (less improvements) before computing its June 1, 1971 value using the property value formula. Step 4. Total the amounts calculated in Steps 2 and 3. This total is the property’s fair market value as of June 1, 1971. EXAMPLE: Karen purchased land for $1,000 on April 1, 1964. Karen built storage facilities on the land on July 1, 1968, at a cost of $12,000. On September 1, 1983, Karen built additional storage facilities at a cost of $36,000. On Dec. 31, 1987, Karen sold the entire property (land and buildings) for $160,000. The current fair market value of the pre-1971 storage facilities is $58,000; the other storage facilities, $60,000. The June 1, 1971 value of the pre-1971 improvements is $18,800, calculated as follows: REV-1742 RETURN TO PAGE 1 ww.revenue.pa.gov PREVIOUS PAGE NEXT PAGE PRINT ($58,000 x 35 mos. = $8,675) + 234 mos. ($12,000 x 199 mos. = $10,205) 234 mos. $8,675 + $10,205 = $18,880 The June 1, 1971 value of the land is $13,372, calculated as follows: A. Current fair market share of land = $160,000 - ($58, 000 + 60,000) = $42,000 B. ($42,000 x 86 mos. = $12,674) + 285 mos. ($1,000 x 199 mos. = $698) 285 mos. $12,674 + $698 = $13,372 The June 1, 1971 value of the land and improvements is $32,252, calculated as follows: $18,880 + $13,372 = $32,252. CONTRIBUTIONS OF CAPITAL AND RECOVERIES OF CAPITAL If adjustments to original basis are required to determine the property’s adjusted basis for Pennsylvania income tax purposes because of contributions of capital or recoveries of capital made or received after you acquired the property, you may need to adjust your historic cost data before using it in the property value formula. Use the following steps to determine the amount of the adjustment: Step 1. Determine the date and amount of each contribution of capital and recovery of capital. Step 2. Multiply each contribution of capital by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of full calendar months in the taxpayer’s entire holding period, and the denominator of which is the number of full calendar months between the date of the contribution and the date of disposition of the property. Step 3. Total the amounts computed in Step 2. Step 4. Multiply the amount of each recovery of capital by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of full calendar months in the taxpayer’s entire holding period, and the denominator of which is the number of full calendar months between the date of the recovery and the date of disposition of the property. Step 5. Total the amounts computed in Step 4. Step 6. Subtract the total computed in Step 5 from the total computed in Step 3. Step 7. If the amount computed in Step 6 is greater than zero, you must increase your historic cost by the amount computed in Step 6. If less than zero, you must reduce your historic cost by subtracting the amount computed in Step 6. If zero, no adjustment to historic cost is necessary. EXAMPLE: Bill purchased a 30 percent interest in PVB Partnership for $12,000 on Aug. 1, 1968. On Sept. 1, 1969, Bill contributed another $6,000. On July 1, 1970, PVB distributed partnership property worth $8,000 to Bill. On Feb. 28, 1987, Bill sold his partnership interest for $47,000. Bill held his partnership interest for 223 months. From Sept. 1, 1969, the date of the contribution, to the date of sale is 210 months. The number of months from the July 1, 1970 distribution to Bill to the date of sale is 200 months. The adjustment to historic cost is calculated using the steps below: Step 1. Value of contribution 9/1/69 - $6,000 Value of distribution 7/1/70 - $8,000 Step 2. Historic value of contribution to the partnership $6,000 x 223 = $6,371 210 Step 3. Total historic value of contribution - $6,371 Step 4. Historic value of distribution from the partnership $8,000 x 223 = $8,920 200 Step 5. Total historic value of distribution - $8,920 Step 6. Net adjustment to historic cost $6,371 - $8,920 = ($2,549) Step 7. Historic cost as adjusted $12,000 - $2,549 = $9,451 The adjusted historic cost would then be used to calculate the June 1, 1971 value as in Example 1. IMPORTANT: The proration method may not be used if you suffered a loss from fire, storm, or other casualty; incurred demolition costs or losses during your holding period; or if you acquired the property by gift after May 31, 1971. It also may not be used if the entity in which you hold a property interest was a party to a reorganization, consolidation, or merger or if other events have transpired during your holding period which would contraindicate its use. DEEMED VALUE If you cannot determine the value of a property as of June 1, 1971, using the listed security, appraisal or proration method, the value of the property as of June 1, 1971, shall be deemed to be its adjusted basis as of June 1, 1971, if determinable, or zero, if not determinable. CAUTION: See the instructions for Column F to determine which basis (adjusted or alternative) to use when calculating your gain or loss.
