Breaking News!! During tax season, IRS planted a couple of nuclear bombs in its newly issued Form 8971 Basis Consistency Regulations:
1. IRS’ all new ZERO BASIS rule: If tax matters are mishandled at the estate level, the beneficiary’s basis (for income tax purposes) in an inherited asset is ZERO!!
2. SUBSEQUENT TRANSFER rule: Any later transfer by a beneficiary (of an asset originally subject to Form 8971 reporting) itself must be reported on a newly generated Form 8971 (and related Schedule A).
IRS Form 8971 (and its Schedule A) is the controversial brand new form an estate must complete to report basis of inherited assets to IRS (and beneficiaries). There's a whole lot more to it than meets the eye for income and estate tax professionals.
