Abstract

In 1997, Congress repealed the I.R.C. section 1014 Stepped-up basis provisions for property received from a decedent. It replaced the provisions with Section 1023, which provided for the decedent's basis to carry-over to the recipients. Although many commentators found the provisions unduly complicated, the authors herein explain the steps in an understandable manner.

Keywords: Basis, tax law
