Instructions and Help about What Form 4797 Transactions

Last question, 14, what amount of gain should every report in the year of sale using the installment method? Alright. Avery Corp sold a building for 600 grand, but received a down payment of 120, as well as annual principal payments of 120 for each of the subsequent four years. They repurchase the building for five hundred and claim depreciation of eighty thousand dollars. What amount of gain should every report in the year of sale using the installment method? So, we're looking at the installment sales approach. What we have to figure out is how much we're gonna get and how much our gain is. So, in looking at this, here's what's going on: we sold the building for 600 grand. We received a down payment of 120, as well as payments of 120 for four years, so 120 x 4 = 480. This is in addition to the down payment, making the total payments 600 grand. Avery purchased the building for 500 grand and claimed depreciation of 80 thousand dollars. Therefore, our book value is 420 grand. The gain on the sale is the selling price (600 grand) minus the book value (420 grand), which equals 180 grand. But normally, you recognize the gain all at once. However, because we're receiving payments of 120 grand each year, we need to determine how much of this year's payment is considered profit. To do this, we divide the gain (180 grand) by the selling price (600 grand) and multiply by 100 to get the percentage: (180/600) x 100 = 30%. So, 30% of the 120 grand payment this year is considered profit, which equals 36 grand. In summary, if you had to calculate a 60/40 split, you would consider the line items such as profit, sales price, percentage, cash received, and recognized gain....
