Daniel receives 400 shares of A&M Corporation stock from his aunt on May 20, 2011 as a gift when the stock has a \$60,000 FMV. His aunt purchased the stock in 2004 for \$42,000. The taxable gift is \$60,000 because she made earlier gifts to Daniel during 2011 and used the annual exclusion. She paid a gift tax of \$9,300 on the gift of A&M stock to Daniel. Daniel also inherited 300 shares of Longhorn Corporation preferred stock when his uncle died on November 12, 2010, when the stock’s FMV was \$30,000. His uncle purchased the stock in 1991 for \$27,600. Determine the gain or loss on the sale of A&M and Longhorn stock on December 15, 2011, under each alternative situation below.
A&M stock was sold for \$62,600, and Longhorn stock was sold for \$30,750.
A&M stock was sold for \$58,200, and Longhorn stock was sold for \$28,650.
Assume the same as in Part a, except that his aunt purchased A&M stock for \$71,000 and his uncle purchased Longhorn stock for \$31,200.
