UltraTax CS: Transfer of qualified real property disposed of in a gain (FAQ)

Show expandable text


How are qualified real property assets disposed of in a gain transferred from the asset module into UltraTax CS?


Per Notice 2013-59 Election to expense costs of real property placed in service in tax years 2010-2013, 2013-40 IRB 297 -- IRC Sec(s). 179, to the extent unadjusted basis of qualified real property is reduced by the section 179 deduction, the amount of that reduction is treated as section 1245 property with the remaining unadjusted basis treated as section 1250 property. When a qualified real property asset with unadjusted basis partially reduced by the section 179 deduction is disposed of in a gain, two units of Screen Sale (for 1040, 1120, and 990 returns) or Screen SalePT (for 1065 returns) will be transferred to UltraTaxCS. The applicable 1245 / 1250 percentage will be applied to the transferred amounts. The Section 1250 property checkbox will indicate which screen represents the 1250 portion of the sale. Thus, the disposition will be reported as two separate assets on Form 4797.

Note: If the qualified real property asset is disposed of at a loss, the asset module transfers data to one Screen Sale.
