Abstract

The final step in handling discharged debt involves the reduction of the basis of the debtor's property or of the debtor's depreciable property if the debtor elects to reduce basis before reducing the other tax attributes. The timing of basis reduction is the same in all instances – basis is reduced at the beginning of the year after the year of debt discharge. The major concern with basis reduction is the order in which the debtor's assets are subject to basis reduction.
