But what if the contributing owner has transferred his or her interest in the LLC to a successor?

Such transfers are common in family LLCs and not uncommon in other LLCs.

The contributing partner must recognize such gain to the extent of the built-in gain in the property. Four years later ABC distributes property P, then valued at $1,100, to C in complete liquidation of C’s interest in ABC.

At the time of the distribution ABC’s basis in property P is still $500.

Yet another is for distributions from certain “investment partnerships” to “eligible partners.” There are particular limitations on each of these exceptions as well as detailed requirements for investment partnerships and eligible partners.

In addition, there is a helpful limitation on the gain a partner must recognize upon receiving a distribution of a marketable security.

It should not be expected to cover, at least not completely, the disproportionate distributions of marketable securities that may occur when a pick and choose approach is taken to distributing LLC assets to the owners in liquidation.

An LLC’s owners may contribute property as well as money or services to the LLC.

Fortunately, there are a number of exceptions to the tax rule that marketable securities are treated as money in partnership distributions.
