Question

Ms. D sold a business that she had operated as a sole proprietorship for 18 years. On date of sale, the business balance sheet showed the following assets:
Tax Basis
Accounts receivable ………………….. $ 32,000
Inventory ……………………………. 125,000
Furniture and equipment:
Cost ………………………………….. 45,800
Accumulated depreciation …………… (38,000)
Leasehold improvements:
Cost …………………………………… 29,000
Accumulated depreciation ……………. (5,100)
The purchaser paid a lump-sum price of $300,000 cash for the business. The sales contract stipulates that the FMV of the business inventory is $145,000, and the FMV of the remaining balance sheet assets equals adjusted tax basis. Assuming that Ms. D’s marginal tax rate on ordinary income is 35 percent and her rate on capital gain is 15 percent, compute the net cash flow from the sale of her business.
